Jane’s POV:

I awoke in a daze, blinking in the darkness of my room. When my eyes focused, I pulled off the two blankets that were suffocating me. I glanced around the room, wondering who had put them over me.

The clock told me that it was 7 am, and I sighed. The cleanliness of this hospital room was invigorating, but not as warm as my own room at home. I felt something touch against my leg and sat up a little, looking down.

I smiled. Daniel was hunched over, his head resting on my legs and eyes closed. He wasn’t asleep of course, but he had my iPod’s earphones in his ears and his face looked so peaceful and gorgeous that it almost hurt to look at him.

Glancing out the window, I saw the sun rising. It might disappear into the clouds soon, but it was so pretty as it came up. I looked back at Daniel and ran a hand through his soft brown hair, watching as his beautiful golden eyes opened. He pulled the earphones out and sat up.

“Morning, Daniel,” I whispered. He smiled that perfect smile of his and leaned up to kiss me sweetly on the lips.

“Good morning, Jane.” He spoke softly and my heartbeats went faster. I was so glad when Dad unhooked the heart monitor last night, because it was so embarrassing when everyone could hear my heart going faster whenever Daniel was near me.

“Look, the sun is rising…” I said.

We watched quietly as the sun rose, holding each other and I felt…blissful. I’d never felt as wanted, loved, or happy as I did just then. I couldn’t wish for more.

“You have really good music on here,” he said, putting my iPod down.

Last night, I had been trying to go to sleep, and Daniel told me that vampires couldn’t sleep. I asked him what he was going to do that night, and he said he was going to sit peacefully and watch me sleep. At first, it was kind of weird, but as I fell asleep, I found that I really enjoyed his attention on me.

“I bet my hair is a mess…” I sighed.

“It looks cute to me,” he smiled.

“Thanks,” I mumbled, struck by the beauty of his smile. As I stood up, he supported me and helped me to the bathroom.

After coming out, I sat on the edge of my bed and held Daniel’s hand and looked outside again. A huge oak tree sat outside of my window and it’s orange-brown leaves fell as I watched.

“Jane?” A knock came at the door. My dad opened it slightly and looked in. “Are you awake, sweetie pie?”

I blinked. Oh my gosh, that is so mortifying!

Dad! Don’t call me that in front of people!” I exclaimed, looking at Daniel who simply smirked.

“Sorry, honey. How are you feeling this morning?” He smiled, patting my cheek. He looked tired and I knew he must not have gone home last night…or slept at all.

“I’m good. Much better than yesterday. So…how did the tests go?” I asked hesitantly, squeezing Daniel’s hand a bit tighter.

“Oh, they went well. You’re still my strong little girl,” he replied. My head hung low and I sighed. My dad sure knew how to embarrass me.

“So, do I get to home?” I asked.

“Yes, but I can’t take you home until later because there was a car accident, and two people were critically injured. I have to stay here and help,” he said, looking at me with those doe-like green eyes.

“Fine,” I sighed.

“Um, sir, if you don’t mind, I could take her home,” Dan offered. Dad looked up, as if seeing Dan for the first time.

“Oh, uh, if Jane really wants to…”

“Yes!” I interrupted. I really wanted to get out of this hospital…I think I was actually getting worse in here than out of here.

“Ok, if it’s fine with her, than it’s fine with me. Just please, rest. Don’t over excite yourself. Drink lots of water, it’ll regulate your system, and make you---”

“Ok!” I interrupted again. I had a pretty good idea of what he was about to say, and I wasn’t going to let him say anything of the kind.

***

“I don’t think we’re going the right way, Daniel,” I said, looking out the window at the forests. I turned down the radio and looked at our intertwined hands.

“Well, the right way would depend on where we’re going, won’t it? And since you don’t know where we’re going, then you wouldn’t know if we’re going the right way,” he smirked, bringing my hand to his lips. I frowned through his confusing logic and picked it apart.

“I thought we were going to my house?”

He looked at me and laughed, his shoulders shaking slightly. I was even more confused, but listening to his laugh was so worth it.

“What is it?” I asked, raising an eyebrow.

“Nothing, you just look so cute when you’re confused. Your nose gets all scrunched up,” he laughed. I rolled my eyes and looked out the windshield. He didn’t though, he just watched me.

“Aren’t you going to look at the road? I just got out of the hospital, I don’t want to go in again.”

“Jane, do you really think I’m going to get into a car accident?” He gave me a look and I found myself shaking my head no. Of course he wouldn’t. He was perfect in a way that would make professional racecar drivers run to their moms.

“So…where are we going?”

“Hmm, you’ll see when we get there,” he flashed his shiny white teeth at me and I sighed.

The Porsche made no sound as it curled around the roads under an arch of beautiful green trees. I looked into the forest surrounding us and blinked when I saw something.

“Stop!” I yelled. The car came to a silent halt, and Dan’s eyes flickered to my face, and his hand squeezed mine almost painfully.

“What is it, what’s wrong?!” He was anxious.

“I saw something,” I said breathily. “I saw something run in the woods…” I pointed out to a dark shape that suddenly moved behind a group of trees.

“Stay still,” he whispered. “Don’t move; I’ll be right back.”

“No, don’t go!” I turned to him.

I barely saw it jump and run to us, hitting the side of our car. I shrieked and Dan’s arms came around me, shielding me. The car lurched and I felt my seatbelt dig into my shoulder.

“Ssh…” he whispered again. I could feel the thing sitting above us, on the hood of our car. My heart crashed against my chest and I couldn’t dare to breathe.

“What is it?” I mouthed up at him. His face looked almost paler than usual, as if that were possible. His jaw was clenched and his eyes glinted darker under his narrowed eyes.

“One of us,” his voice was barely audible. I felt a chill shoot down my back. One of us? Another vampire?

“On the count of three, hold on to me as tightly as you can,” he spoke against my ear. I felt my seatbelt unbuckle silently and I nodded. He unbuckled himself just as slowly and I heard the thing above us move. It was anticipating our next move.

“One,” he murmured. He slipped his finger to the lock and unlocked it quietly. The thing moved again and the car shuddered.

“Two…” I gripped his chest as hard as I could. “Three!”

I closed my eyes and felt a rush of wind and heard a snarl from further away now. I knew he was running, I could barely feel his legs moving under me, but his arms gripped me tightly. I opened my eyes a sliver and I saw a flash of red before shutting them again.
