"So, What's so great about a girl falling in love with a vampire?" Kyle said with an interested. I smiled and turned away from him stocking the books. "It's just romantic how much he loves her and he's willing to give up his life for her." I said seriously. Kyle laughed and i turned towards him. He was closer than i expected and he wasnt smiling but he was looking at me how Evan looked at me. "Can you help me?" An older woman said. Kyle stepped back and looked her. He walked away and i went to the back room. I sat down and put my head to my knees. I heard his voice and i perked up. "Is Janaila here?" I heard Seth say. I held my breathe and then i heard Kyle's voice. His voice wasnt the Kyle i knew it was hard and not easy going. "Yeah, hold on one second i think she's in the back." Kyle said i could his footsteps getting closer. When Kyle came into the room. His face was cold and i could feel the jealousy seeping off of him. "There's someone here to see you." He said quickly. "Who?" I said already knowing. "Some big tan guy." He said. "Okay, thanks Kyle." I said sweetly. Kyle nodded and walked back out. The store was quiet and i hurried and looked at myself in a dark computer screen. My hair was okay. Just in a high ponytail. I fixed my headband and looked down at my outfit. Just my Minnie Mouse hooded and some leggings. My stomach was flying with butterflies. I took a deep breathe to calm myself and walked out of the room. His back was turned to me and he was looking at a book. "Hey." I said quietly. He turned to me and smiled. I smiled back. "Hey" He said back. "How are you today?" I said filling the silence. He smiled and shook his head. "I'm sorry i'm being weird i'm just a little embarrased." He said shyly. I wanted to comfort him and make him smile again. Before i had a chance to say anything he took something out of his pocket. It was a folded piece of paper. He handed it to me his hand brushing mine. It was warm and soft. I opened the paper slowly and read Seth's messy and boyish handwriting.
“People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within.”

I smiled and looked up at Seth. He was looking at me with a slightly embarassed but curious look. "This is beautiful." I said my voice thick. Seth relaxed and smiled. "My teacher was reading something and that made me think about you." Seth said quietly. I folded up the paper and tried to hand it back to him. "No, i want you to keep it." He said. I smiled putting the paper in my pocket. "So, this is your job?" Seth said looking around the store. "Yes, All the people are invisible.." I said smiling. Seth smiled and laughed. "Oh, yeah do you have Killans?" He said. "You like Killans i love that book." I said turning to show him where it was. "Yes, i love that book i cant wait for the sequel to come out." He said with a genuine excitement. I smiled loving this side of him. "Who's your favorite character?" I said walking down the aisle. I could feel Seth's warmth behind me. "Lison because he can breathe underwater and his love for his friends and family." Seth said as i reached up to grab the book. I wasnt tall enough. I felt Seth stand behind me grabbing the book. He stepped back and niether of us said anything. I turned around and looked down at the ground. I looked up and seen that Seth was closer than i realized. "Whose your favorite character?" Seth whispered.
I checked him out. I felt Kyle's eyes on me. "So, i was wondering if you wanted to hang out or something tommorow?" Seth said nervously. My mind was screaming no and i felt sick. But my heart was pleading with me. Seth eyes were piercing into me. I hated myself and my eyes burned. "I can't i have a lot of homework and the house." I said feeling like i needed to throw up. I looked down not being able to look Seth in the eyes. "Okay." Seth said i could hear the hurt in his voice. He walked away and i watched him knowing i couldnt after him.
