I sat in the back of the cafeteria, watching all of the guys, trying to decide which one I would approach. I had to find one that would be easy to work with, although I knew it would be a challenge to talk anyone into working with me. I had to find an angle because none of them would want to approach Alexis.

They all basically looked the same to me. Sure there were the ones who were obviously popular, usually they were the better looking ones. But there were also some good looking ones sitting quietly by themselves or in small groups. Which type would give me less trouble?

My eyes stopped at a table of geeks. They were all engrossed in a role playing game on their laptops instead of eating lunch. Perhaps one of them would believe in vampires. I didn't need to tell them everything, but I needed to give them some information. That way I could approach Alexis about the changes she was staring to experience as she began her transformation. She would feel all alone with no other vampires nearby and if I could get one of these guys to be her confidant, I would have her eating out of my hand in no time.

The bell began to ring and I moved to cover my ears, but then I realized that it wasn't so loud as long as I wasn't right underneath. I had my eye on the table of gamers. All except one were closing their laptops.

"Hey Jason," one of the guys said. "Time to get to class."

"I have to complete this mission first."

When only Jason was left at the table, I picked up my backpack and sat down next to him. He looked at me from the corner of his eye and then went back to his game. A few seconds later he looked back up at me, sitting up straight.

"Done with your mission?" I asked, trying unsuccessfully not to smile.

"No. What are you doing?" he asked.

"I wanted to introduce myself. I'm new here."

He looked me up and down. "You want to introduce yourself to me?"

"I've been watching you," I said with a smile. "I'd like to get to know you if that's okay."

Jason's eyes widened. "You do?"

Nodding with thirsty eyes, I said, "I really do."

He closed his laptop. "I'm Jason."

"Don't you want to finish your mission?"

"It's not important."

The bell rang.

"Uh oh," I said. "Sounds like we're late for class."

"I can handle a tardy. Can you?"

"Of course. Everyone has grace for the new girl," I said, scooting my chair closer to his.
