And it had been a long day all right.

All through our morning classes, Jonathan's gaze had not left me at all and it had both unnerved and excited me. And, naturally, the excitement part of my body response made me angry at myself, and that in turn made me even more unsatisfied at having him by my side as I walked into the cafeteria.

"Will you cut it out already?" I sighed, giving him a sideways glare.

"I didn't do anything."

The flat way he said that made him almost sound clueless as to what was unnerving me at the moment. "You're just following me around like a lovesick puppy. Other than that, you didn't do anything, " I rolled my eyes as I got in line to get lunch.

"Mates are impossibly attracted to one another but they don't fall in love at first sight, you know, " he drawled, his serious tone making me turn my head to look at him, "You can't love someone you don't know."

"And your point is?" I obviously knew what he was getting at but I played dumb for I wanted to get it all in the open.

After using Tim and feeling awful about it, I was no longer so interested in playing jealousy-slash-taunting games with him to drive him away. And after the hauntingly vivid nightmares that left me raw, all I wanted was to get it over with once and for all. I simply did not enjoy mingling with werewolves.

"Don't reject me before you even get to know me, " his strikingly blue eyes were holding mine captive, the intensity of his stare making it hard to focus, to breathe even.

I ripped my eyes away seconds later, all too happy to get air into my lungs at the proper flow again, "I don't want to fall in love with you." I shrugged nonchalantly. The truth seemed to unsettle him as he visibly stiffened. "I don't want to be tied to you by some stupid mate bond."

There, all out.

"Is it really that you don't want to?" He paused, his hand reaching out to my cheek before I could dodge it, turning my face so I would look at him, "aren't you simply scared?"

My eyes widened

bottle it up, " he sighed, giving me a small smile before offering me his hand, and I just cocked my head to the side in silent question.

"People are approaching, we should leave."

His flat response had me following him to his car. It wasn't like I could explain what had happened. If I had beaten him to a pulp, I could have said he had made me so angry I had lost it. Explaining how the upper half of a tree laid in small broken bits was not the easiest task there was... I was not that great a liar.

"Hey, how are you doing?" I heard him speak on the phone as he drove us through the city, "I'm gonna need you to send an eraser to the high school."

'An eraser, huh?' I mentally sighed in relief, halfheartedly mad at myself for not having thought about it myself.

In such situations, that was the only option. An eraser was a vampire whose job was to make people forget they had seen something paranormal. It sure was useful. If only I, too, could forget a few things.

'No, how could you ever want to forget? You're better off knowing what the real world is like, ' my stubborn side scolded me for my vulnerability. I had vowed to myself I'd never show weakness and I had promised Karl he'd never have to bid me farewell... After today's events, it all seemed like the empty words of a child living in an adults' world.
