Running Thoughts - Derek 1There were days, strange awkward and horrible as they were, where I still thought that putting Chloe in danger was selfish. It was selfish; I knew this right down to the very core of my being. But the wolf inside me won't listen to any of that. She's mine for as long as time stands, that's all it knows and will listen to. Irrational to think, but then animals are seldom rational. It's just all the running, she hides it sort of well, but she can't hide that from me. I've spent far too much time watching her, I know her. She wants nothing more than to be able to stay in a single place for more than a few weeks or a month at a time. Something that I can't say I want all that much but I'd try; for her.Running Thoughts - Derek 14 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
Growing up always moving has left the idea of staying somewhere for a long time feeling foreign. The actual action of staying in one place for extended periods makes me nervous. A learned personality trait that I doubt will be changing anytime soon, likewise I don't see Chloe growing accusto
Running Thoughts - Chloe 1Two months ago this was not how I imagined my life being. I never would have thought that I would end up on the run. Not just from the Edison Group for a period of time, but quite possibly forever. For now it was the best that we could do, any of us. Simon and Derek were reunited with their father though, and I have my aunt. But there are days where I'm tired of all the running. The only thing that keeps me going these days is having Derek with me. Aunt Lauren still doesn't approve but she has stopped trying to keep us apart. The Edison Group is in disarray, but that doesn't mean any of us are safe, and I have resigned myself to that fact. For the time being all that matters though is that we are all together and mostly safe. For now that is enough; that and our mission. Seeking out and informing the other souped up supernaturals of the Genesis II project about what they really are.Running Thoughts - Chloe 14 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
Running Thoughts - Simon 1We were on the road shortly after Tori snapped at me. Driving along Interstate 91 heading north for the time being. Dad wasn't telling any of us where we were going and it bothered me. Before Derek and I had ended up at Lyle House he'd always told us where we were moving to next. Not this time though and it made me feel out of the loop as I sat there in the middle seat next to the Queen Witch herself.Running Thoughts - Simon 14 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
The back seat was mostly quiet. Tori had her attention diverted by the only portable CD player we had for the moment. We all shared it; I was okay with that...usually. I had my head pressed against the window watching the highway scenery roll by at 70 miles per hour. Every now and again I would make the mistake of looking forward and my eyes would glue themselves to the sight of Derek and Chloe curled up in the backseat of the minivan. I tell myself that I'm not jealous that she picked him, but if I told the truth I'd call myself on the total lie. But what Derek didn't know wouldn't hurt

I quickly got up for the day- Andrew had said some new people were coming to stay with us and I'm going to be meeting another necromancer. Maybe I could get the answers to the so many questions circling around my mind - Is it even normal for someone to raise the dead in their sleep? I didn't think so- Derek says it's because of the strength of my powers and I just needed to pull in some control. But there was still the linger of doubt wanting to ask just in case either of us were wrong.
I ran a brush through my straw like hair, the feel made me wince though on the plus side, there wasn't much black left and the blonde was coming through - I'll have to ask Tori soon if she can help me dye my hair as I didn't mange to get some dye the other day, I couldn't get blonde because anyone could recognize me.

Andrew went to collect the visitors from the airport while we waited around the kitchen, each of lost in our thoughts as we kept to ourselves. The car pulling up in the drive way along with multiple doors opening and closing caught our attention. The sudden vibration of a growl came from the the dining table where Derek sat, his long strides quickly brought him in beside me. "What's wrong?" The only answer I got was Derek staring at the doorway before he finally answered with a tense jaw.
"Nothing." Didn't sound like nothing- Before I could think of any reasonable answer the front door opened, Andrew walked in with five others, two girls and three guys. I didn't really know what kind of impression to think of them, they were all different in their own way.
Andrew gestertured to the table. "Why don't we sit down and get to know each other. " We took seats around the table- the divide was clearly seen with us on one side and them on the other. "Simon, you go first." Andrew,

I stretched my muscles out as I kicked the blankets off me, the bed was comfortable but there were other matters at hand that I needed to sort out like talk to Derek. Getting ready for the day, I was soon walking down stairs to the kitchen where I could hear the sound of pots and pan hitting.
I halted at the kitchen doorway at the intensity of the room, it was like a flash back at Lyle House and it made a shiver run down my spin. Tori wasn't chatting away, Simon wasn't smiling and Derek was back to frowning - the whole atmosphere made my throat go dry as no one looked up as I entered the kitchen, not a single greeting- it was like someone had hit the 'mute' button on the remote.
All I could do was stare at Derek as I stood at the table near him- he always knew what to do. Out the corner of my eye something to my right moved and I saw Paul look up in confusion- there was nothing there. I closed my eyes as Andrews swearing tone and the sound of chaos in the kitchen, no one

It's been a hole day since we escaped from the Edison Group, again. There hasn't been any disturbances in the force, as Simon
put it. No one was looking for us, no one was hunting us down.....for now atleast. My Aunt Lauren had been cooped up in the hotel room,
with Mr.Bae, Tori and Simon, as they were looking over the list of other subjects. I guess they were looking for the nearest one so we
can check up on them and tell them what happend. But right now, that wasn't what I was thinking about. Since they were busy, me and Derek
had some time to ourselves. When I was around Derek it seemed like everything else in the world didn't matter. And with all this chaos going on,
that feeling was amazing.
Derek and I were in the field at back of the highway motel we'd stop at, cuddling under the stairs.

After the hours of being upset, I decide it was time to do something as my emotions were replaced with anger - If Derek didn't want me, I didn't need Derek. He was scared of being a monster and hurting me, well he succeed in hurting me if he thinks pushing me away wouldn't do that. He didnt just push me away, he dumped me- he ended it!
I stormed out of the safe house slamming the door on my way out and walked straight into the forest - I couldn't believe the stupid werewolf thinks he knows what's best. I wanted to kick some sense into the man and he was to damn protective for his own good- I cant turn a corner without him suddenly there.
It seemed the universe wanted to prove me wrong as I fell over a fallen tree branch and scrapted skin off my knees. Frustrated and annoyed- i got up and spit the dirt from my mouth and tasted some blood. Great, a reason for Derek to kill me for getting hurt- he shouldn't care anyway, he ended it

Derek was already dress as he sat in the chair across from the bed watching me. "Good morning." He kissed me on the head before leaving the tent- Today was the big day, everything had to be in order.
When Derek arrived back in our tent I was dress and ready- I had my own plan to go through with. I watched him move around the tent organizing everything, the silence was broken by young Ben standing outside our tent. "Derek." I yelled for Ben to come inside. "Ben, come in. I didn't know you were here." Ben walked into the tent with a shy smile.
"Mother won't allow me in the fight but she said I could help at camp." That sounded like Tara.
Derek was direct with him. "Did you have a message for me?"
"Uncle Samuel says it's time to leave." Derek nodded his head and kneeled down to Ben's height.

I turned and looked down at her. God, it was hard to ignore her hair falling down her shoulders and back like she was a goddess. I saw the blush rise over her cheeks and looked away; stupid me for staring.
"I think we need to give her some time to think. She was obviously trying to make an escape."Her voice sent sweet chills down my spine. God, what was happening to me?
"I guess. Uh, I don't think we should take her with us. She might be safer with the pack."I spoke, trying to get my mind from anything but her.
"Yeah, Nate and I were talking about that earlier."A pang of jealously was sent from the wolf in me but I ignored.
"I'm uh, gonna go pack."I walked out of the room. As soon as I got to my room I punched the wall. A very visible crack was the last thing I saw while I was still sane.

With the couple gone, Derek and I made our way into the lounge room, the sight that greeted us was Tori and Chace in deep conversation with one another, we didn't stick around and interrupt them but I made sure to catch Toris eye and mouthing 'Girl Talk' behind Chace - it seemed Tori had a new interest.
In the backyard there was a few of them enjoying the nice weather- Paul was sitting under the trees while Simon and Olivia were practicing magic. I looked to Derek wondering where we were going to next when I caught him watching Olivia's every move - a foul taste filled my mouth, a sign of jealously that i had never really had for anyone else and it scared me to think he could easily pick Olivia over myself. Derek looked down at me suddenly, searching my face before leaning down to plant a kiss on my cheek. H moved to my ear and whispered, "I'm your knight and werewolf."

Dimitri stood there blinking a few times and then becoming fully aware. I stared at him, hair still falling around my face. He just looked back at me with a look like he wasn't going to explain why he was in my room. I took a deep breath.

She sat on one of the chairs looking through a book. She didn't show much interest for it though and it seemed to be long forgotten as she turned her attention to me.
