Chapter 20

Writer Notes: For everyone who has been following my Chrome UPdates then this is the first of the chapters that I saved before the laptop died.  For those who haven’t heard about my Announcement just go to my home page here on Thoughts of Hell.  There’s all kinds of UPdates to get you caught up.

Warnings: bored Elf likes moving things around, newspaper, impatience, rudeness

Tatiana thought she had heard a bunch of furniture moving.

“He’s gone crazy.” Lewej said.  “Just leave him be.”

Tatiana smiled and hurried into the bathroom to freshen up.  She hadn’t slept very well that night.  Alot of things were on her mind.  How things were going at the firm, what her clients must have thought about her absence…and strangely, if her mom had called.  She spent most of the time at work figuring out an excuse not to talk to her parents.  They didn’t like her job, said it would get her into trouble.  Ironically, and surprisingly, they were right.  Who knows what supernatural will do when someone has upset them.

Tatiana looked at herself in the mirror.  Well, with a little eyeliner, no one would notice the dark circles.

“You two are quiet.”

The Elves looked at each other.

“Come on,” Tatiana smiled.  “What’s up?”

Lewej shook her head.  “You better show her before she has a cow.”

“Be nice.” Vaiden hissed.

“Show me?” Tatiana questioned.

Vaiden sighed and looked up at the girl, but didn’t directly look at her eyes.  “To the kitchen.”

“You might be fascinated with the cover story.”

“Why in the world would I be interested in the news?”

“Just look.”

“Misplaced Stream Woman Missing; Elf Suspect” said the headline.  Tatiana eyes widened with every word she read.

“No,” she shook her head.  “They think you…kidnapped me, or worse.”

“Yeah that’s a problem.” he muttered.

“How, though, how did they know you grabbed me?”

“I’m sure the Vampires have insiders everywhere.”

“What-the-hell do we do now?” she asked.

“Lewej has thought of an idea.” Tatiana narrowed her eyes with suspicion.  “She has agreed to be civil about this.”

“Why?”

“Well…because I’m in danger as well.” He took a step back.  “She’s in the bathroom waiting for you.”

Two hours later…

“You are worse than a bride on her wedding night.” Lewej shook her head.

“It’s my bathroom.” Vaiden growled.  “It better not be a mess.”

“Oh, I thought you were worried about someone…I mean, something else.” she smiled.

Vaiden just shook his head.

“You know,” Lewej began.  “She likes you.”

He side glanced at the Elvin girl.

“I mean as a person. She thinks you’re ok.” Lewej laughed.  “There must be something wrong with her.”

“Do you think the Vampires broke her head?”

“Lewej…”

“Leave her alone.”

    LMAO. Vaiden is so full of win. And is Lewej starting to give some time for Tatiana… or is she setting her up for fail?

    I smell a makeover coming… I hope for Lewej’ sake that Vaiden approves.

    I think I’ve missed something though… what’s a ‘Stream woman’?

    • It’s actually “Misplaced Stream,” the neighborhood which Vaiden and Tatiana live. The headline is basically saying “woman” (Tatiana) from Misplaced Stream is missing and “elf” (Vaiden) is the primary suspect of the case. 😉 Sorry for the confusion. I spent two years in Journalism and was never good at making headlines.

      Lewej will be good just to make Vaiden happy. She knows if she steps on his toes and hurts Tatiana in any way, Lewej may not have a place to stay for very long.

      Wow, you tackled this chapter. I had just put up the links! I’m impressed. 🙂
