I run through the door of my house and lock it behind me. I pull the blinds down and close the curtains. A group of strange men followed me home from school. I would have fought them if they were just regular men, but they weren't. They all had glowing gold eyes, and fangs! Like vampires! I run up to my room and close the blinds and lock the windows. I lock my bedroom door and curl up under my blankets. Everything is silent and calm. I end up falling asleep, tucked safely under my blankets.
"Atticus! We need to step in before they do!" Birch says to his brother.
"Birch! Chill! Christian is coming up with a plan!" Atticus answers.
"I'll chill when we know that Nevie is safe from Lore and his crew!"
"We have bigger things to worry about than Lore!"
"Like, for instance, Nyx, Wolfram, Avalon, Crow..."
"Okay! I get it! But why do we have to wait for Christian to come up with a plan! I mean, the boy isn't very bright..." Christian clears his throat from his position, leaning against the wall of the small, stone room.
"Sorry, Chris..." Birch mumbles an apology to his brother.
"So, do we have a plan yet?" Atticus asks, changing the subject.
"Yeah. We have to take her and move her to a bunker. One of us have to be with her at all times. And I know you don't like it, but I asked Crow for help." Birch opens his mouth to say something, but Atticus 'shhhs' him.
"It's only fair. They want to protect her just as much as we do. I mean, they're her guardians too." Christian continues. Birch sighs and looks back at the image.
"So how do we go about exposing ourselves?" He asks.
A bright light wakes me from my sleep. I open my eyes to see three teenage boys, that look to be about seventeen, surrounded by the blinding white light. One of them steps forward. He has blonde hair, blue eyes, and he wears a stereotypical angel outfit.
"Nevie, don't be afraid. We don't want to hurt you. We're your guardian angels. My name is Atticus. These are my brothers." Atticus moves aside, and motions to the other two boys. One with light brown hair and brown eyes steps foreward and takes my hand.
"My name is Birch, princess. My brothers and I are here to protect you." He places a gentle kiss on my hand, and steps aside. The third one steps forward. He's got dark brown hair and beautiful emerald eyes. He wears the same outfit as his brothers. He rests his forehead against mine. I can feel love radiating off of him. Unconditional love.
"My name is Christian." He says. He places a gentle kiss on my forehead. I stare at them.
"I'm still dreaming, aren't I?" The three boys look hurt.
"Nevie. You're not dreaming. We're real. We're here to protect you. Please, believe us."
"No way. Get out of my house before I call the cops, you creeps!"
"Nevie. You know what you saw. You know what those guys looked like. You know that they can't be human. Nevie, you gotta believe us." Atticus says. They stare at me, pleading for me to believe them. Something in their eyes just tells me. They're telling the truth.
"Okay. I believe you." I say. Birch smiles.
"Thank you. But you can't stay here. The boys that were following you, they're vampires. They're after you, and we need to take you somewhere safe."
"But...what about my parents and my friends? I can't leave!" Christian leans into my face.
"If you don't come with us, you're putting yours, your family's, and your friend's lives in danger. Please, Nevie." He pleads again. I'm about to tell them that I can take care of myself, but I'm interupted by a puff of black smoke. Three more boys appear. These three have blood red eyes. One of them steps forward. He has short purple hair spiked up. He wears a black tee shirt with the sleeves rolled up, and black skinny jeans. He wears a black studded choker. He take my hand and gets on one knee.
"We're here to help protect you, princess. We are your demon guardians. My name is Crow." He kisses my hand.
"What do you mean 'princess'?! I'm not a princess! I'm just a normal seventeen year old girl!" Crow stands up and goes over next to the angels.
"That's where you're wrong, kiddo." Another demon steps into the light. He has the same eyes as his brother, but he has neat black hair, flipped over to one side. He wears a red shirt, and black skinny jeans. He has the same studded choker. He says his name is Salem.
"You see, your soul is that of a spiritual princess. You ruled over the spirit realm many thousand years ago. But, you're jealous sister, Avalon, wanted the throne. She tried to kill you, but we took you're soul and gave you a new body, and gave it to your parents. It's okay that you don't remember, you weren't supposed to. Avalon was led to believe that you were dead so that she wouldn't try to hunt you down, but apparently she's found out that you are indeed alive. She's sent some of her servants and guards to hunt you down and kill you." He explains. The last of the three steps towards me. He has the same hair as Salem, only messier. He wears the same outfit as Crow, with the same choker.
"That's why we have to take you away from here." He says.
"Atticus, the bunker is all ready for her." Crow says to Atticus.
"Good job, guys. Come on, Nevie. We have to go."
