C2 CHAPTER TWO- not just a creature

My lips connected urgently with his own and I kissed him. It wasn't soft and slow, no. It was hungry and passionate and he didn't hesitate to kiss me back just as equally.

His lips tasted like coffee, a taste I'd gotten very used to, a taste I'd missed so much but sadly this moment didn't last because my brain might have blocked the feeling of his freezing hands around me and icy lips being flamed by mine, but my body wouldn't forget it, it hurt and that made me pull back with a bit too much force that had Damon staggering back a bit.

He looked at me with confusion in is eyes as i struggled to calm my breaths. "What's wrong? "

"N-nothing I just, feel a bit dizzy. "

He took my hand in his to lead me into his apartment but I immediately retracted and walked in on my own.

The place was plain, other than the few tattered boxes of pizza on the table and a shirt hanging of the armrest of his black couch, there was no other evidence that someone actually lived here.

The walls just like the outside was painted a light shade of faded green and a few white stripes.

"You haven't been here long have you? " I asked.

"A month and three weeks " he said moving to take out the littered pizza boxes "sorry about that. I didn't know you were coming ".

I smiled, honestly I didn't care about his disorderliness, trust me, Damon is a huge definition of disorderly, I was just really happy to see him.

"Are you okay? "he asked with genuine concern in his eyes, sitting beside me and searching my face for any signs of fatigue. "I'm sorry I couldn't make it last night. My car... "

I chuckled cutting him off "I know you got pulled over Dame, I asked you not to come ".

"And let you go crazy wishing to be with me? Hell no. " he smirked.

Ah... There he is. I almost thought I'd lost my cocky boyfriend. My grin was so wide it nearly split my face in two.

"And besides, " he sucked in a breath "I fucking missed you. "

"I'm sorry "

"You have nothing to be sorry about "he grabbed my hand in a comforting gesture, the friction caused me to jerk away so fast but that little touch was enough for him to catch on to "you're burning up " he palmed my face this time causing me to hiss out loud due to the freezing of his hands. "I'm taking you to a hospital "

He was up on his feet in a second, grabbing for his car keys. "it's fine Dame, I'm fine I promise "

"Is that why you don't want me to touch you? "

I nodded my head in agreement but the deep crease between his brows wouldn't disappear "has it been like this since you woke up? " I nodded again. "this is bad love you have to see a doctor "

"Damon I'm fine "I sigh, getting on my feet to match his height. Only he's still at least three feet taller than me. "all I want right now is to be with you, can you do that for me? "

He still doesn't look convinced but he gives in either way, "I'll get you some milk " he said, disappearing into the joint wall of the small kitchen.


"So, RBU huh? ".

We were both lying on Damon's middle sized bed on our backs, looking up at the ceiling and making small talk about the things that have been happening in his life since I was gone.

"It's temporary. "he answered making my brows crease.

"Temporary? "

"Yeah. After you... After the accident, I almost gave up " I sucked in a deep breath. He almost gave up... On me. "I got accepted into NYU but I wanted to wait for you. We planned everything together you know? We had a whole life ahead of us together. I was going to take a gap year but then my acceptance would be cancelled completely and my chances of getting accepted on another application would be close to zero. So technically I put it on hold for the first semester".

My heart felt heavy. He'd put his life on hold for me just like Faye did. A feeling of guilt washed over me. "I'm so sorry ".

He turned his head to the side to get a sharp look at me and smirked, lifting an eyebrow "baby, you can't feel sore, we haven't even started anything yet ".

Is it stupid that I'm sometimes a bit too slow? Because it took me a little while before I caught on to his innuendo. My cheeks flushed red "shut up! ".

He fell back laughing, a full laugh that exposed his complete set of white teeth. By the time his laughter died, he moved closer to me, being careful not to make direct skin contact, and I know he hated it.

"The only thing you should be sore-ey for is keeping me waiting for so long, "he smiled "man! Two months without sex? That's fucking starvation"

Is it possible to flush any hotter? I swallowed.

Then his expression turned serious, as he played with my hair and stared right into my soul "two months without you? "he scoffed "that's fucking suicide. It's a miracle I'm still alive ".

Without my knowledge, a single tear dropped from the corner of my eyes but lucky for me he didn't notice it. But even though he might have escaped the slight tear, I know he didn't escape the intensity of my feelings.

"Hold me" I said and he frowned.

"I thought it bothers you?"

I shaked my head energetically "I don't care. Just for a little moment, please, I need you to hold me. "

And he did. He cocooned me in his arms like a mother hen protecting her baby egg from the predators of the wild. Our bodies tangle together on the little bed. His chin rested above my head and mine buried in the hardness of his chest, as I tried to ignore the feeling of icy torture on my skin and welcome the warm consuming feeling in my heart.


"Are you even listening Dian?"

"Huh! Yeah I am "

Faye asked if we could meet at Joe's (the diner that Ming now worked at. Which is apparently the best in town, the place never gets dull.)she said she had something really important to talk about.

I knew it had something to do with the creature that attacked us that night. A part of me wanted to just bury it and move on with my life, every beautiful future that lied ahead of me. But I had to admit, I was also curious. The whole story just seemed really shady and I secretly wanted to get to the bottom of it. But a little voice in my head kept telling me I wouldn't like what I find, and should just pretend it never happened to keep living smoothly.

But then again, the word smooth, doesn't exist in my life. I've never had anything happen smoothly for me before and I probably never will. After all, life is nothing but smooth.

I had talked to the police in charge of my investigation about the attack and what they found with my mom. He'd simply said and I quote "it's not natural ". of course those words were just meant to be a harmless metaphor, but I was slowly starting to believe them now.

The thing left no trace to where it came from but the huge claw like prints on the ground of Ming's living room said that whatever it was we were dealing with was something big and dangerous. And the cause of the black out that night around the town was still a mystery to us.

Ming had to move out. It was inevitable anyway, considering she had gone broke loosing her family's funds. Lately she's been staying with Jaime, or Faye whenever she closes too late for work and doesn't want her cousin to loose his shit worrying about her.

The government took care of the house repair finances after a month of investigations till they couldn't find anything and closed the case, assuming it was just a loose wild animal.

"I know you probably think I'm very crazy, but I spent almost a whole month researching on this now, I can guarantee you I know exactly what I'm saying. " Faye said pulling out a bunch of books and papers and placing them on the table in front of us.

"That thing that attached us that night... "she scrambled through the books. Then came to an abrupt halt and poured the book closer to our line of vision.

"That wasn't just any creature Dian. " I stared confused at the picture before me.

Ming was quiet all through not saying anything. I bet she was really as confused as i am.

Faye dropped her voice so low that only the three of us sitting on that table could here her.

"It was a demon ".
