I was incredibly lucky, my next lesson was history and as I peered round the door, I spotted the blonde boy. Next to one of the only, two free seats. I went into the classroom and the teacher told me to sit wherever I could find a seat. So I sat next to the blonde boy, Jasper.
"Okay. For the next few weeks, we're doing a project in pairs. Any aspect of American history. There will be a prize for the best project. Get to work"
"Partner?" I asked. He nodded.
"So what do you want to do?" he asked.
"Don't mind. Although, I've always found the civil war interesting," I said. I wasn't lying; it was interesting.
"Well, let's do that" he said. We started working and it turned out that Jasper knew a lot about the civil war.
"What are you two doing?" asked the teacher.
"American civil war" Jasper replied.
"Good choice, though I recommend you work on it outside of school too"
"So, do you fancy coming over to my house and working on our project together?" he asked.
"Okay" I said, "I have to tell my sister though, and make her tea"
"That's fine. I can see if I can find some research books in the library, and then I can pick you up at, say, six o'clock?" I nodded. He smiled and I felt my heart flutter. What was happening? I relaxed suddenly. I was only interested in him because of my mission. Nothing else! I repeated this thought firmly.
"Okay" Thee bell rang and we headed off to our next lessons. On the way to trig (boring!) I bumped into the bronze haired boy, Edward, and his girlfriend, Bella.
"Sorry" apologized Bella.
"No, it was my fault. No need to apologize" Edward raised an eyebrow slightly at me. I smiled happily back and thought about what I was going to give Cara for tea. As soon as he was a distance away, I smiled to myself. I could spot a mind reader a mile away. I headed for trig and settled into monotony.


When the day ended, I met Cara and drove her home.
"Cara, I'm going out at six"
"Is this part of the mission?"
"Yes. I am going over the lions den"
"You can't be serious! One little mistake, they'll find out who you are and kill you! Can't you observe them from a distance?"
"NO! It's my job. Now shut up" She shut up immediately. I served her tea and waited. Six came. Then half past. Then seven.
"He's not coming" I sighed. Cara thought I was upset because my observation wasn't going well and I knew that's why I should be upset. But I was upset by something else. I had actually been looking forward to it! Stupid vampires!


The next morning I was sitting in my seat in history, intent on ignoring Jasper when he turned up. I knew it was stupid when I was supposed to get close to him, but there were two reasons for it. One) that was how a normal teenager would react. And two) even though I didn't want to admit it, I was genuinely upset.
"Um...Alice?" said a musical voice that was filled with uncertainty. I ignored it and I heard a chair scrape and the drumming of fingers on the desk.
"Alice?"
"What?" I asked as if I couldn't be bothered.
"Can I talk to you?" I turned to face him for the first time that day.
"Now why would you want to do that? Could it possibly have something to do with the fact that you were supposed to pick me up at six last night and didn't, making me feel stupid for trusting you? Or was it something else that you wanted to discuss?"
"I wanted to apologize for not showing. It was rude. Will you forgive me? You can come over tonight"
"Will you tell me why you didn't turn up?"
"No"
"Then I won't forgive you" I ignored him for the rest of the lesson but at the end I handed him a thick pile of paper.
"Here you go. That's what I spent my evening doing. At least I take stuff seriously" I stalked off. This might be harder then I thought.
