It was a dark,foggy, and cold night.This was a surprise for many people,for they never saw a night as scary as this.It was the year 2000.In a town called Cord Arboretum lay a little house at the corner of Goosecow street.
Five people lived in the house:
A Mom,a Dad,a ten year old boy named Ash,a nineteen year old girl named Jessica,and a fifteen year old girl named Poppy (me).
I lay in bed,looking out the window,thinking about how horrible the first day of school would be when all of a sudden,I saw a shadow zoom past my window.
I quickly got out of my bed in order to follow the shadow. I grabbed my pink,glittery pager (just in case),put on my jacket,and then my sneakers.
Then,I quietly left the house.
I was outside! YES!
Now,where is that shadow?
What is that noise?
SLURPPPP,followed by a shrill scream.
Who is screaming?
Wait,I think it's in that bush.
I slowly walked up to that bush,not knowing what was in store for me.
I saw a boy with white eyes,dark hair and blood on his mouth.He looked like a vampire...but vampires weren't real...he lunged towards me and bit me,like a frightened animal trying to defend itself..
I wake up in a pale room,with machines that were buzzing and whirring.
Great.I'm in a hospital room.I hate hospitals.
After I recovered from my shock and anger,I tried explaining what had happened to me.
But they wouldn't believe me.
My mom insisted that I get some rest,but I didn't want to rest.
Sleep did come,though.Sleep always comes.
I was walking in a London village.
I was also wearing this lovely white lace dress.
I spotted a lovely teenage boy with whiteeyes.He was wearing a black suit.In short,he was really beautiful.
Suddenly a girl shoved something in his mouth and recited incantations.He fell to the ground and I woke up in a cold sweat.
"Well,well,she finally awakes." The voice came from the boy I saw earlier. He then told me his name was Derek and the whole story about how his friend Chole,the girl I saw in my dream,betrayed him and turned him to a vampire because he only thought of her as a friend,not a lover.
He turned to leave,but then I screamed:
"DEREK! DEREK! COME BACK!" but he was already gone.
I wanted him.I wanted to know more.
Please,come back,Derek.Come back! I don't want to be here anymore.I don't want doctors anymore.I just want YOU.
Suddenly,the door creaked open.My doctor,Sheila,is here.
She has brown skin,kind brown eyes,but a firm face.
"Good news!" says Sheila.
"You're better! But stay away from this boy."
She held up a picture from a news article.It was Derek.
"Police say he's a psychopath. They haven't caught him yet,and I don't want you getting hurt." She reported.
I don't care what the police say! They don't understand! Nobody understands! I WANTED HIM!
As I was going to leave the hospital,I stumbled upon a book on the floor.It was titled:
A history of the supernatural
But the name was scratched out.
I had to show my friend,Ashley.
I ran to her house and knocked on the door.
But I ran too fast and slammed my face against it,causing me to fall down.
I was back in the village.I was in a room with candles and cloth,books scattered everywhere.
Chloe was there.She screamed:
"AGNES,GIVE ME THE POTION FOR VAMPIRISM! NOW!" She stamped her foot impatiently.
A girl appeared.
But it wasn't any girl.
It was Ashley.
She had her raven hair,her dark brown eyes,and her mischievous smile,like she knew something the other person didn't.
"And why would I help you? Your royal status doesn't change anything. I can just send you outside,or better yet-" She smirked.
"-hex you." She finished.
"Because if you don't,I'll have royal guards kill your entire family." She said.
"Okay fine,I'll help you."
"POPPY,WAKE UP!" Ashley shouted.
I woke up.
"You're lucky I saved you before you fell."
Then, she saw the look of horror on my face.
"What's wrong?" She asked,worried.
"I know everything,Agnes." I said.
"How do you..I didn't have a choice!..She was going to kill my family!" She screamed.
"She's so evil she could've lied to you! You could've fallen for her lie!" I screamed.
"I didn't have a choice.." She repeated.
I ran away from her.
Once I was home,I read the book I found.
What I found surprised me.
Apparently,it said that my ancestors were sirens.
So that meant that I was a siren...
I dropped the book in horror!
"POPPY,IT'S TIME FOR DINNER!" My Mom shouted.
I couldn't speak.
I couldn't move.
My Mom came upstairs to check on me.
"What's the matter,sweetie?" She asked.
"IS IT TRUE?!" I asked.
"What are you asking?" She asked.
"Am I siren?" I asked.
"Where did you get this idea?" She asked,her face darkening.
I showed her the book.
"I don't know where it came from,but I wanted to read it." I said.
I didn't mention Derek,for fear that she would report him to the police.
"I don't where this book came from,either.But you are a siren.Doyou want to hear the full story?" She asked.
"Yes." I answered.
"My parents died when I was young, so I was left in the care of my terrible aunt.She knew what I was.She hated me for it.I ran away from her and didn't speak to anyone but your father.Come,let's gave Dinner." My Mom said after finishing her story.
She went downstairs to prepare Dinner.
When I sat down,I ate my nachos in silence. Mom and Dad were talking about adult stuff,Jessica was on the phone with her normal,human boyfriend while eating nachos,and Ash was pretending his food were battle ships.
Iwanted to know about my history andIwanted to know about Derek.Iwanted to know whyIwantedhim.
So,I'm going to find him and my friend and we're going to talk.
Now,I was walking down the soft,dead,road all the way to the cemetery.The moon shone unforgivingly on me,but I didn't care.I needed to know the truth.I finally made it to the cemetery,Ashley and Derek waiting.
I walked over to them and yelled:"I JUST FIGURED OUT THAT I'M A SIREN,MY BEST FRIEND IS A WITCH,AND MY LOVE IS A VAMPIRE! SOMEBODY EXPLAIN!"
"I'm your love,huh?" Derek asked,with a smirk on his face.
"That's not important! I need answers,NOW!" I yelled.
"Well..." Ashley began."I came from a village-"
"Yes,we know. Just get to the point!" I screamed.
"Okay,so I'm a witch and I happened to know Chloe.She came to my house and said that she needed the potion to turn people into vampires.When I found out that she used it against Derek, I was furious.I trusted her!" Ashley finished.
Just then,we heard a female voice scream:"THERE THEY ARE! KILL THEM,THEY ARE ABOMINATIONS!"
"RUN!" Derek yelled and we ran the heck out of there.
We ran all the way to the water tower,which I have to say it was surprising because the water tower is near the end of town."Who...are...we..pant...running from?" I asked no one in particular."We're running from...pant....Chloe...and her..pant...minions." answered Derek.
We jumped in an abandoned Jeep. "Um,how are we supposed to ride this thing? It's abandoned and it probably doesn't work." I stated.
"I'm a witch,remember? I can make this car start." answered Ashley.
"Oh,right." I said.
"Listen,I'm sorry I-"I apologized,but she interrupted me.
"APOLOGIES LATER,POPPY! I NEED TO START THE CAR!" yelled Ashley.
"They're gaining on us."said Derek.
"JUST LET ME FOCUS!" Ashley screamed at him.
They walked closer to the car.We were doomed.
I braced myself for a horrible death,when,right on time,Ashley started the car.
Ashley drove the car like we were in a car chase.
We drove past the weird farm,and the sign that said:"Thanks for visiting Cord Arboretum! Come back soon!"
I knew that my whole life was going to be different from now on.
I was going to learn more from mybest friend Ashley.Maybe Derek and I will start dating.
Anything can happen.
I turned to look at Derek,who was in the backseat. He passed me a mischievous grin and said:"Don't worry,we'll fall in love."
"Really?" I asked.
"Positive." He said.
Oh boy,oh boy! I can't wait to continue this adventure.
