I waited until it was midnight. Willow was snoring, Sienna snuffling and Jasmine muttering. I slid out from under my blanket. I climbed over Jasmine’s sleeping body and crept over to the door.

“Ashley. Where are you going?” Sienna whispered.

“Those vampires. We need their help, I can feel it. Let me go and talk to them” I pleaded. She nodded.

“You’re right. And if you say we need their help, I trust you. Go, but come back soon as you can, or Jasmine will create!” I nodded and crept out of the room and down the stairs. I bolted out of the door and stood in the cold for a minute. Then I started to run. Our house was already deep in the forest so I knew the vampires would be nearby. I had a ‘sense’ about these things. I always knew the right way to go. Both Sienna and I had a kind of sixth sense. Sienna could tell things about people, just seeing someone she knew all about their personality. If she actually got to know them, she would end up knowing more about them then the person did. I sighed as I ran through the forest. I was quite quick but my hobbies weren’t sporty. I liked maths at school. And my hobby was stargazing. I found them mysterious, up there where no one could really get to them. I stopped. Wow. That was a nice house. I didn’t know what to do. I took a step forward then backed away. I sighed. I was such a coward. I ran away again. A car tooted and I froze, a rabbit caught in the headlights.

“If you’re going to get up at midnight and stare at my house for ages, can I at least give you a lift home?” I realized that it was one of the vampires.

“It’s okay if you don’t want to. I understand our kind can be pretty freaky” he smiled. I shook my head.

“If Jasmine hears a car, she’ll wake up and get protective”

“How about I drive you part of the way? It’s dangerous out there” I shook my head again sadly.

“You have no idea of the danger we’ve faced,” I said. He sighed and shut the car window. I thought he’d leave but instead the car sat there. I walked off. I was such a coward! I was too used to my sisters looking after me! I scowled and kicked a stick. It was propelled into the road to be run over by a car. Good, I was nearly home. I reached the house and snuck back upstairs. Sienna was lying awake for me. She took one look at my face and knew that I’d been too cowardly to ask for help.

“We’re alone,” she said. I nodded.

“Sienna? Do you think that this will work out? That we’ll ever have a normal life?” I asked. She shook her head.

“We know too much. Even if we get a normal life, we’ll always be different because of what we’ve seen,” she said. That was the sad truth of our lives.
