HP. 27 A fine line27. A fine line
Being raised in the pureblood thoughts of the Black family, Sirius learned at a young age that nothing or nobody was grey. They were either white or black. Good or bad. Accepted or not.
When it rained, there was nothing else to do then take a seat in front of the window and be gloomy all day because you couldn't play outside. When you were sick you got angry at yourself because you had to stay in bed all day while there were hundreds of other things you rather be doing that day.
It took until he met the little Sarah Starnight that this view of Sirius changed. She teached him that how dark the situation may look, there's always this fine silver line at the edge of that black cloud. And that fine silver line became only clearder to the Black boy when he arrived to at Hogwarts.
Nothing became more fun to do on a rainy day then laying on your bed and listen to the newest muggle music. When he did this at his house, it was of course 'smuggled' muggle music...

Suddenly Hope shot up from the bed, taking a deep breath in the progress. Stefan checked her vital functions and then looked at me. “She’s okay.”he told me.
I sighed relieved and took a seat at the opposite edge of the bed. Hope was looking down, her hands folded in her lap, concentrating on her breathing. I reached out and took her hands in mine what caused her to look up. It was then that I saw it in her eyes. Fear.
I gently pulled her towards me. She immediately followed my lead and a couple of seconds later I was holding her in my arms. “It’s okay.”I hushed her. “It’s okay.”. She shook her head. “No it’s not.”she whispered. “They told me it is coming.”. “Who told you? The ghosts?”I asked. She nodded.
“They told me it’s coming.”she repeated. “What’s coming?”Stefan asked. “Or who for that matter.”

“Why are we in the gym to watch a fight contest?”Bonnie asked. I had dragged her, Elena and my brother Stefan with me to a contest of fighting sports at the local gym. “Because Damon is convinced an old friend of ours is one of the fighters.”Stefan replied. “You just know as I do that Hope can’t resist a fighting contest.”I said. “She’s here.”. “Damon has a crush on her.”Stefan whispered to Elena and Bonnie. “I don’t have a crush on her!”I hissed.
You really know how fun it is to be an only child when it’s too late. But he was right. I had a crush on her. No, crush wasn’t the right word. I was in love with her.
We met each other in 1870. She was a witch and one night there was a party in town where I asked her to dance. The whole evening I drowned in her blue-grey eyes. Unfortunately, Katherine discovered my feelin

It all started a few weeks ago. Me and the other werewolves found an open place in the forest. All the trees were burned or laid in several pieces on the ground. It was a battlefield.
I decided to visit the Cullens. I finally took peace with the whole Bella and Edward thing and we all became... Friends I think you can call it. Anyhow, I went to them to ask if they knew anything about other vampires who visited Forks. Carlisle told me that his family were the only ones.
Two days later we found another battlefield and five days after that another. That’s when we all decided to work together so we would discover who or what this new threat was.
I remember that day exactly. It was Friday, late in the afternoon when Edward, Alice, Jasper, Leah, Seth and me where patrolling in the forest when we heard the sounds of explosions. That was the day I met her.
The six of us ran towards the sound of the explosion, but when we re

“Ugh… I’m getting sick of all the lovey dovey couples around here.”Dahlia grumbled as the two of us walked side by side through the streets of Mystic Falls. We had become best friends in these past two years and I knew about the vampy secret of her and her brothers, while they knew about my witchy secret.
“Jeez, Dee… Jealous much?”I asked her with a giggle on which she rolled her green eyes.
“It’s not because they think they’re on cloud nine that they have to rub it in our faces.”she snapped.
“Oh, I’m pretty sure George Lockwood would love to show you off just like that to the whole town.”I remarked with a snicker on which the eyes of my best friend settled on me in a dangerous glare. Seriously, if looks could kill, I would be dead three times over.
“Like hell he will.”she spat at the thought of her sui

I looked at myself in the long mirror in Damon’s room. I was wearing a black pair of jogging pants, my favourite sneakers and a grey tank top with on it an angel with devil horns and a halo. Underneath the drawing stood in red letters “I swear I’m an angel. Those horns are just to keep my halo up.”. I took my matching black hoodie and headed downstairs.
“Faster!”I heard Stefan and Damon yell. “He’s not going to make it.”Damon said. “He has to.”Stefan replied. They were watching a football game. “Touchdown!”. I just shook my head and threw my hood over my head.
“Where are you going?”Damon asked when he saw me. “Jogging.”I replied. “It’s nine in the evening.”he said. “So?”I asked and slipped my cell phone in my pocket. “It’s dark.”. “Oh, I didn’t notice that.”I answered, my voice

Before I knew it I was pinned down on the bed with Hope on top of me with her hands around my wrists. “Don’t even try that again Salvatore.”she said with a grin. She let go of my wrists and pulled her blindfold off.
“How did you knew that?”I asked. “I blindfolded myself so I could shut down my sight. Because of that my hearing was stronger. I heard your heartbeat.”she explained. “I’m a vampire. I don’t have a heartbeat.”I said ignoring the fact that she was still on top of me. “Yes you have. It’s just lighter than a human’s heartbeat. And because you’re always focussing on those heartbeats, you became deaf for your own one.”she said.
She took my hand and placed it on my heart. Till my surprise I could feel a light movement. Hope smiled at me. “See?”she asked. Then she got off of me and laid down next to me. “Every so called mons

“You have to admit little brother, I’m still faster than you.”I told Stefan when we walked back from the woods to the mansion. “You always have been faster than me Damon.”Stefan pointed out. “That’s something that hasn’t changed from when we were human. You always outran me.”.
“And the ability of running fast has saved my life dozens of times when I was in the army.”I replied. “When?”Stefan asked. “When you ran away from the battlefield or after you told dad you left the army?”. I glared at him. “That was low, you know.”I told Stefan. “Learned from the best.”he pointed out.
At that moment we entered the mansion and I immediately froze in the doorway. Something was wrong. “Damon? Are you okay?”Stefan asked when he saw me freeze. “No.”I said. “Listen.”. “I hear nothing.”my brother re

It was amazing to see all those artefacts in one room. I saw a watch and some other jewellery that belonged to Elena and Jeremy’s family, the Gilberts. And then I saw a necklace with a silver locket and a tiara with diamonds on it. Both belonged to my family. But the necklace meant more to me then the expansive tiara. And that was because it was filled with vervain.
Damon had given it to me not long after he told me he was a vampire. He had told me that I had to wear it always, even if he wasn’t around. Just to make sure he wouldn’t be tempted to use his powers on me.
The truth however was that I never wore that necklace. I had given it to my mom instead. Damon always thought I wore it. Not as a necklace but that I kept it in my pocket or something. He still thinks I have the necklace now by that way.
“You’re new in town aren’t you?”a voice from my right asked. I recognized the boy as the one who had

Ten minutes later Hope returned with in her hands a small wooden box. “Okay, Bonnie you’re a Leo what means your element is fire.”she said when she looked into the box. “Mountain crystal.”Hope said and held a white transparent stone in her hand. She gave it to Bonnie.
“Go stand over there.”Hope told her next. “And keep the stone in your hand.”. Bonnie did as instructed. “Hope, what are you doing?”I asked. “Showing you all the power of gemstones.”she replied and then shot an energy wave towards Bonnie. The person in question screamed but then the stone started to glow and formed a shield around her and absorbed the energy wave. Bonnie looked shocked at the small stone in her hand and then towards Hope.
“Where the hell was that for?”she asked Hope. “As a witch you have to have faith in your powers, spells, potions and other tools. Gemstones are most

I woke a few hours later. Hope was still laying in my arms with her head on my chest. But she was sleeping restless. “No.”she said while a few tears rolled over her cheeks. She was having a nightmare. “Damon come back! I can’t lose you! Please...”. Her voice grew weak on the end. “I can’t lose you.”she repeated in a whisper.
“Hope?”I said and stroke her cheek wiping her tears away in the progress. Her eyes flew open and she herself shot up from the bed. She was breathing heavily. I pulled myself to a sitting position. “What happened?”I asked. “Bad dream...”she whispered with a trembling voice. Then she turned towards me. “You died.”. She started crying again. I pulled her in my arms as she told me about how she saw a vampire hunter kill me.
“It was on the night of the Blood Moon.”she whispered. “When is that?”. “I do

Before I returned to the mansion, I had visited the gym because I had forgotten some of my stuff. My weapons to be exactly. For the moment I stood in front of the front door of the Salvatore mansion with in my arms a black chest, when I suddenly heard Damon and Stefan talk.
“I called her twenty minutes ago and she isn’t back yet.”Damon said. “We’re speaking about Hope here. She has a black belt in every fight sport you can think of, she’s for a part a vampire and a fully witch.”Stefan replied. “She can handle it if she would be attacked.”. “That’s not the point!”Damon responded. “I already lost her twice. I think I can’t handle it if that happens for a third time.”. “And the second time was already so hard.”Stefan muttered.
I smiled when I heard this. Damon was a vampire without fear, without a weakness. And now I heard that he’s scared

A couple of minutes later Hope came back. It was strange to see her in a jeans, a grey baggy t-shirt that exposed her left shoulder, black high heels and that she was wearing make-up and jewellery. She had freed her hair from the ponytail. When you saw her like this you would never believe she just won a fight contest.
“Okay, I’m ready to go.”she announced. We all walked towards the exit. “Bye Jerry!”Hope said to the gym keeper. “Bye Hope. You come for the training tomorrow?”. “I don’t know. I will see, okay?”. “Sure.”Jerry replied.
“Since when are you back in Mystic Falls exactly?”I asked. “Three weeks.”she replied. “And you didn’t come to see us. That’s cruel.”I answered. She slapped me on my shoulder. “Sorry, was busy with training and other things.”. “They are perfect for each other.”Elena whispe

I heard how Damon pressed the light switch. My eyes grew wide. “What’s this?”I asked. “Your workshop.”he replied. He had thought of everything. All the material I needed for painting, drawing, photography, scrapbooking and decorating were there.
“You don’t like it?”he asked when he saw my expression. “ No, I love it! Every artist dreams of a workshop like this one. It’s just that...”. “What?”. “This”,I pointed at the rooms, “was supposed to be my apartment. Now that you made a workshop from it, where am I going to live?”. Damon smiled again. “You said it yourself. I overthink everything I do. For everything I say or do I have a reason. So, tell me Hope,”he took a stand behind me and wrapped his arms around my waist. “What is my motive this time.”.
Suddenly the puzzle came together. “You want that I stay at the m

“I’m warning you Ace.”Hope threatened. “Ever got a kick from a girl who wore high heels?”. “Actually yes.”Ace answered. “And that girl was you.”. “Multiply that by ten and you’re not even close with the pain I’m going to cause you if you don’t give me back my necklace.”. Her voice was dark and even. God, I loved this girl.
“Now!”she growled. Ace immediately gave her the necklace back. “And now out.”. “But...”Ace began. “Five, four,...”. Ace pulled a ring out of his pocket and disappeared. “Teleport ring.”Bonnie said. “Nobody is better in threating then me.”Hope said while she did her necklace on. “And especially not a rat like Ace.”. “You’re scary sometimes.”Stefan said.

As I suspected Jeremy had ditched school again, so I decided to follow Damon’s advice and went to the cemetery. With a bit of help from my vampire senses I quickly found the spot Jeremy was hiding. And he wasn’t alone. There were two other guys and a girl with him. I simply walked over to them.
“Hope what are you doing here?”Jeremy asked when he saw me. “Saving your life.”I replied. “Okay, party is over!”. “Says who?”one of the guys asked. “I said.”I replied. “And I’ll give you all exactly five minutes to clean this place up and then go home. And tomorrow you all go to school.”. “Yeah right.”the girl said and threw a plastic cup at me. I snatched it out of the air.
“Four minutes.”I said calm. The three teenagers looked at Jeremy who looked at the ground and shook his head. “We better do what she’s asking.”Jeremy

I bit my lip nervously when Christina stepped into the ring to meet a smirking Peter. You have no idea how badly I wanted to punch that guy in the face but so far only Edward had succeeded in doing that.
The two Candor transfers circled each other for a few seconds until Peter charged forward. Chris managed to block the first few attacks but lost her balance when he planted his fist in her face, drawing blood from her nose and mouth. Peter tackled her next to the ground and kicked her repeatedly in the ribs.
“Enough!”Four’s voice boomed from next to me, breaking up the fight. Peter spit onto the floor as Will hurried to Christina’s side. “No way a girl can beat me.”Peter commented as he high fived his friends.

Outside the sky was dark grey colored and it was raining very hard. Not even the moon could break through the thick blanket of clouds. The sound of thunder could be heard every few minutes and the only thing that provided some light outside where the flashes of lightning. It had started storming this morning. Because we all thought it was to dangerous to go outside, we had stayed all day in the beachhouse, keeping ourselfs busy with whatever we could find. But now that the night had came. I was sitting in my room looking outside the window how the lightning reflected on the water. I know it sounds crazy but all I wanted to do was going outside. Dance on the rhythm of the falling drops, surounded by my element. Knowing that the rest was fast asleep, I opened my window and sneaked out the house. I wasn't afraid for the thunder or lightning. Not even when I was a kid. Sokka, well he was another story. Whenever it stormed back on the South Pole, h

After breakfast Hope and me left the mansion and walked together through Mystic Falls. “Where do you want to go first?”I asked. “To the place where it all ended.”she replied. I knew she meant the town square. That was the place where the witch trials used to be held. The place were Hope had ‘died’.
“You’re sure?”I asked her. She nodded. “Okay then.”I gave in. We walked for a few minutes in silence. “So…”I tried to break the silence. “Where can we talk about?”. “I think your food is a good subject.”Hope replied. I grimaced. Most people call vampires monsters because they drink blood. Hope refused to call Stefan or me that. She called us different. When I met her, I started to live on animal blood just as my brother because I knew how Hope thought of killing innocent people.

With a sigh I sat down at the long Slytherin table at the Great Hall. Since the largest amount of students preferred to study in their respectable common rooms, not many were present here for which I was grateful.
Last school year the whole Voldemort affair had come to a close with the golden boy Harry Potter defeating the Dark Lord and destroying a good part of Hogwarts. Over the summer the school had been mostly rebuild resulting that every witch and wizard could continue their education, even me.
Things had changed though… Voldemort may be gone but everyone still remembers my family sided with him. That I sided with him. Even my fellow Slytherins seemed to avoid me and talk on hushed tones behind my back when they thought I couldn’t hear them.
Don’t they know that my choice of becoming a Death Eater wasn’t my choice at all but my family’s? I couldn’t

In my head was this voice saying: ‘See? He doesn’t care about you! Not in the same way you care about him anyway! Did you really think a guy like Damon would pick you? You’re such an idiot for believing that! I tried to warn you but did you listen? No! You thought you knew better and gave everything up for this stupid fantasy of yours that will never happen!’.

Out of it I pulled one of his black shirts. I threw my black and white checked shirt onto the bed and pulled his shirt on instead. To be honest, hanging open like it did now, it was a really cool jacket.
