INTYWIDFAL (Chapter 19)
We left his room and went upstairs. He pulled down the ladder.
"Come up!" he said as soon as he was in the attic. I climbed up the ladder too and got caught in a spiderweb. I tried to pull it off but failed. I panicked. Gee came over and helped me. He looked at me with a questioning look.
"I'm afraid of spiders. When I was a child, one morning there was a big spider sitting on my nose when I woke up. Now I hate those creepy insects."
"Ah. I understand. Well, I hate all kinds of birds, no matter how small they are. I got attacked by some crows when I was nine and tried to find Mikey." He glanced down at me which was very tempting. I was so close to throw over all my plans of waiting until I'm older and just wanted to... 'No! Control your thoughts, Frankie!' I thought. Suddenly Gerard giggled a little bit. I looked at him.
"You can read minds, right? You know what I'm thinking." I accused.
"All vampires can do that. Some are better at it than others. I'm not that good in it." he said smi
The Circus Is In Town (contest entry)"Gee! The circus is in town! Let's go and see the circus! There's also an amusement park with a Ferris wheel and a rollercoaster!" I cheered as my boyfriend walked out of our bathroom.

We kissed for a while until I broke away panting. "You better eat and get dressed." I said before I left to take a shower.

We arrived at the circus an hour later and first went to ride the rollercoaster. After five rides we walked to the tent to see the show.
They had almost everything there. A beardy lady, acrobats on a rope, a magician who cut his assistant in two pieces and put her back together, a l

"Tell me something about your history. Your human life." I said and he looked up. "Where's that tattoo on your neck from?" It was a triangle standing on the spike, two curves inside, between the curves a circle and in the circle a line.
"Erm... well it's not a tattoo. It's a brandmark. I got it on my sixth birthday."
"Why? Who did it?" I asked.
"My father. He put the iron in the fireplace and when it got hot enough, my uncle Victor and my cousin Radu had to hold me. Then he put the hot iron on my neck. I still remember how painful it was. But it's nothing in comparison to the transformation. Mikey was there too and saw everything. When it was time for him to get the mark, he ran away and hid in a cave in the woods near our house. We all went out, searching him. I found him crying there and had to catch him. It took me a few hours until he got tired and I was able to get him back. When we got back, our father got very angry with him. And because Radu died before Mikey's sixth birthday a
