Chapter 2

Mark

I'd never been what you could call a big fan of school. Not like Rebecca, who liked the academic bits and managed to tolerate the rest of it. I didn't even like the academic bits. And that was before I found out that I was going to become a vampire. You'll understand how it was that I couldn't see the point of sticking it out until I was finished. What good would a bunch of GCSE's do me when I started metabolising iron, and became almost invincible. Seriously?

Either way, I'd promised Mum I'd go to school, and I was feeling guilty about our intrusion into her privacy last night, as justified as it might seem. Plus I'd found that book, which fell squarely in the category of too much information. I'd had a couple of interesting dreams last night, though, so it was not all bad.

It was good to see Harry again. Rebecca seemed to have this concept of him as a grunting caveman type, but Harry was nothing like that when Bex wasn't around. I reckon he had the hots for her, so whenever he saw her he transformed from an articulate normal person to a grunting caveman type. It was unfortunate really, but that romance was going to be doomed no matter what. Harry was no Angus, let's face it.

I noticed the way Rebecca disappeared during lunch. I was profoundly jealous, but I knew I had English after lunch with Mr Parker, who would be sure to notice my absence, so I stayed. Talk about your bad decisions.
