surviving the bite
We all walked into the room and Harry turned the light on.
“it’s about time you got back” we all faced the room and someone on the settee got up and faced us.
“Gregg!” I said shocked.
“god you gave us a heart attack” Harry said.
“how all I did was sit on the settee I mean what else would be in here?” Gregg said.
“for all we know you could have been a crazed fan that got into our room” Louis said.
“anyway what are you doing here?” I asked.
“what I can’t drop by and see my favourite brother anymore?” Gregg said.
“I’m your only brother you have no choice but to have me as your favourite” I said.
“hey we will give you some time alone we are going out we will bring back some food” Rachel said coming over to me.
“alright be safe i love you” I said and she smiled.
“will do and I love you too” she said we both lent in and we kissed each other.
“we will be back around 11 maybe 12 I don’t know we will text you when we are on our way back” Louis said and they all walked out.
“would you like anything?” I asked.
“sure I’ll have a cup of coffee.” He said and I went in the kitchen and made him a drink whilst he sat at the island in the middle of the kitchen.
“you know since the other night, you know the night that you came around for a family dinner I’ve been having blank spots in my memory” Gregg said and I froze.
“w- what do you mean blank spots.” I stuttered.
“well for one you wouldn’t look at me when you were in your old room and I walked by then somehow I was down stairs what was that about?” he asked.
“I was ill” I said turning back to making his drink.
“how long were you ill for?” he asked.
“um, 2 weeks” I said.
“but if you go back three weeks you disappeared for a week no one saw you so where were you?” he asked.
“I had the flu” I replied.
“so then you were ill for three weeks.” He said.
“yeah that’s what I said.” I said.
“no you said two weeks” he said.
“well sorry it’s not my fault I was ill I don’t exactly keep track of time when I’m throwing up and lying in bed ill” I shouted.
“calm down Niall” he said I picked up his now fully made drink and I crushed the mug in my hand making the mug smash on the floor and the hot liquid land on my hand, I hissed out in pain and faced the counter.
“Niall run your hand under cold water” Gregg said.
“no it’s fine none of the liquid went on my hand” I said through gritted teeth.
“it sure sounds like it didn’t” Gregg said sarcastically my hand was clenched and Gregg reached around and grabbed my hand going to put it under the cold water but he froze when he saw my hand.
“what, the liquid hit your hand I saw that and your hand isn’t even effected how is that possible” Gregg said.
“I told you it didn’t hit my hand” I said and I grabbed the dustpan and brush and cleaned up the smashed mug and cleaned the floor.
“you smashed the mug in your hand of course the liquid hit your hand” he said.
“just drop it Gregg!” I snapped.
“fine so are you enjoying the tour?” he asked.
“it’s fine” I replied.
“what about you and Rachel?” he asked I let a small smile form on my lips.
“we are doing amazing” I said thinking about that night she forgave me and we camped out in the woods.
“so do you think you have truly met the one?” he asked.
“yeah she’s perfect and she is just amazing in every single way” I said.
“can I ask you something?” he asked.
“well you have already been doing that so go on” I said.
“why are you so cold, the other night you were freezing and your still freezing now” he said.
“I’m naturally cold” I said shrugging.
“no you’re not, you know since the last time you were in Ireland you were completely different your hiding something I know you are” he said.
“I’m not different I’m exactly the same apart from I’ve aged.” I said.
“you’re not Niall your my brother we grew up together you’re an idiot to think that I wouldn’t notice something like this I mean sure it’s slipped past mum but it’s not getting past me so just tell me” he said.
“I can’t Gregg you want to know why because I have nothing to hide I’ve changed a little I mean I’m more confident I’m a little older and I don’t know I’m different in those ways but there’s nothing else” I said.
“fine don’t admit it but I will find out what your hiding” he said and he walked out of the room slamming the door shut.
you guys can come home now Greggs gone xx
alright Liam and Zayn are just finishing up eating so we will be back in about 10-15 minutes how did it go xxx
He asked a lot of questions but I’ll tell you about it when you guys get home I’ll see you soon xxx
I sat on the settee and wrapped my arms around my legs I don’t want him to find out about me he will hate me and I don’t want my own brother to hate me and he will go on and tell the rest of the family and then I will be shunned by my full family I just can’t deal with that.
I waited around for around 15 minutes and they all walked through the door.
“ok tell me what happened” Rachel said sitting next to me.
“he asked loads of questions I got annoyed smashed a mug which had coffee in it and that burned my hand luckily I managed to persuade him to drop it and then he said he had blank spots in his memory from the other night and he knows I’m hiding something he can’t find out about this I mean I can’t have my family hating me.” I said I had some tears forming in my eyes.
“your family wouldn’t hate you, your over reacting” Louis said.
“they would hate me if they found out how many people I’ve killed innocent and none innocent” I said.
“but you need that to survive we don’t kill for pleasure we kill because it’s what we need to survive I’m pretty sure your family would rather you be here and alive than dead” Rachel said.
“but if Gregg finds out he will tell my mum and dad and then they will spread it and I- I can’t have that please compel him again” I said.
“I can’t Niall my compulsion isn’t strong enough” Rachel said.
“what do you mean it isn’t strong enough” I said.
“everyone has different strengths and weaknesses right. Well some vampires are faster some are stronger but others are weaker and overs aren’t as fast well my mind reading is pretty much my biggest strength and because of that my over abilities aren’t as strong as some peoples and one thing that’s affected is my compulsion it’s never been my strong point even before I had my mind reading it was really weak and I thought it was getting better but in a group that big it just wasn’t strong enough” Rachel said.
“wait so does that mean some of my abilities are going to be weaker now that I can project force fields?” Louis asked.
“maybe I mean just because that happened to me doesn’t mean it will happen to you everyone is different so everyone’s change is different as you already know.” Rachel said.
I love it
