“Why would you think that?” Christopher responded with startled expression on his face for a second before his smooth mask replaced it.

“Don’t play games with me Christopher. You don’t eat, you skipped school when it was sunny outside, and everyone is in awe of you and can barely say anything coherent around you. I’m not stupid! You of all people should know that.” I cried almost yelling hysterically.

“I-”

“Don’t you dare try to make up any excuses. I know what you are and I know you are the same Chris who was my best friend.” Why couldn’t he just admit it?

“Alright, you win Christine. I am a vampire and yes I was your best friend,” He replied when he realized there was no way for him to get out of it.

“Why did you leave? Do you have any idea the pain you put me through? The pain you put everyone through? I barely left my house all summer. I kept hoping that it all was just some nightmare and I would wake up soon.” I knew I probably shouldn’t have been telling him all this, but I needed him to realize how much he hurt me. When I looked up I saw my pain mirrored in his face. Before I could say anything else he started to talk.

“I didn’t want to leave you. Christine, you were the best friend I have ever had. But that is exactly the reason why I had to leave. We were too close; it was too dangerous to stay any longer. I tried to find some way that wouldn’t hurt you; I thought that if I pretended to die it would hurt the least.”

“I thought you were dead. You were the one person who ever understood me, and then you were gone.” I whispered.

“I know. I wanted to tell you so badly, but I thought that there was no way you would want anything to do with me after that, so I left. I’m not proud of it; I haven’t stopped thinking about you ever since then. Every week during the summer I almost went back to Seattle to tell you the truth and ask for forgiveness. Then I would chicken out.” As he was talking, I was watching his face. It looked like he would have been crying if he could. I realized that no matter how much pain he had put me through, I still loved him and I would forgive him. I couldn’t bear to walk away from him now. For one thing, he was my only friend in Forks.

“I understand, and yes you put me through so much, but I know that you were just protecting me. You should know better than that, Chris. You know perfectly well I am more than capable of protecting myself.”

“Yeah, to some degree, but there are some things that you can’t protect yourself from. You are only human.”

“Oh very funny.” As I looked around I realized that there were people everywhere. “Oh crap! We’re gonna be late to class!”

“I thought you didn’t really care about being late to class.” Chris said as we hurried to our next period.

“Well it’s still a new school and I’m still trying to make a good impression.”

“Oh please, you always make a good impression on teachers.”

“Maybe when you aren’t around distracting me, but when I have someone who is good at making me late and getting me in trouble for talking during class, it becomes a bit harder.”

“Who me?” He asked with a look of complete innocence.

“Yeah you.” I replied as we walked into class right as the bell rang. I spent the rest of the day telling Chris all about what he missed and how all of our friends are. Before I realized it school was over and we were at my house.

“Well I’ll see you tomorrow. When will I get my car back?”

“It will be back tonight. I can always give you a ride to school tomorrow though. With gas prices as high as they are.”

“Ok, I’m sure all you are thinking about is saving me money.”

“Of course it is. I’ll see you tomorrow bright and early.” He replied as I got out of the car. Right before I got to the front steps there was an explosion and my house blew up; sending me flying back onto the grass.
