Chapter 1









We sit there, so quiet I almost forgot what noise was. Emmi pulled her knees closer to her, eyes closed as she listened to the birds sing their final song, the only noise which punctured the night. I examined her face closely, trying to get any gist of what she was feeling right now. Silence has always been one of the things I've hated most, but now I don't want this to end. Because what happens after that?

5 months before

My name is Sophie Cross. I'm 17 years old and I attend Chankiri High School for Girls. My family includes my mum, my um... scratchy cat Ginger, the best God parents in the world Jess and Sam and my older sister Tulip who's 26 and lives in Australia, who I haven't seen since our Grandma's funeral. She made the best cookies. As for my friends I've got my best friend in all the world Emmi, my internet buddy SparkleLover45, who I recently found out was called Rin, and a man who gave extra sprinkles on my ice-cream for free when I was 5. Who I haven't actually seen since.

Life is Ok, every morning I get up at 6:45 am, step over Ginger who always sleeps on the bottom step of the stairs, and get a bowl of a cereal. I get dressed, brush my teeth, brush my hair, brush my cat, brush the floor, do an awful lot of brushing and finally leave the house at 6:55. I normally meet a very red faced Emmie outside the door, asking what took so long, despite we both know she ran all the way here. We get on a train and spend the ten minute journey talking and laughing, then we walk to school for five minutes. That's always been the case and no different has ever happened. I want it stay that way. Because as long as I remember, I've kinda always been sorta...you know...um well in love with Emmi. Not friendship love, passionate, unconditional crazy love which you can't control, even if you spend years on Wikipedia looking it up. Why don't I just tell her? Excuse me!? Has anyone in the history of ever realized they're in love with someone and just waltzed up and said? So I guess this story will be about me trying to tell my crush I like her, you might want to get comfortable, this is gonna take an awful long time.

263Adder: Okay so I adore this story. I only knocked one star off plot for historical inaccuracies because I'm a bit of a stickler for that.

Sabrina Ettey: The story plot is great. I loved it. Just the grammar punctuation and writing style was kind of distracting. But with the smooth polishing, it may shine like a pearl. :)

izzymerchant: This book is truly special. The plot, the characters and the way the story flows is so engrossing and magical that I found it virtually impossible to put down. The character relationships were particularly fascinating and Melenthia's character was fascinating. Cannot wait to see what happens next!

Stephen Warner: To start off, I am thoroughly impressed. The writing style is somewhat unique, and the plot seemed to move at a nice and steady pace. However, I was not expecting this to be a vampire book! I am usually not one for novels about vampires, but I was pleasantly surprised! You wrote with such grace a...
