Once I arrived, I looked around the larger-than-usual audience, full of rowdy students, until I finally spotted Riley.

“Riley!” I yelled from across the bleachers. He looked at me, smiled, and waved me on up.

“Where’s Shannon?” I asked as I reached the seat next to him.

“She’s with the other cheerleaders.”

I searched the crowd looking for her. I spotted the back of her head, sitting on the lawn, stretching with the rest of the girls.

“Hey, are you doing okay?” he asked.

“Not really. You ready for this?”

“Oh boy, what now?” he said, picking up his fast food burger and taking a bite.

“I figure since you took the news about me being a witch so well, this won’t shock you too much.”

“There’s more?” He asked with his mouth full of food.

“Oh, there’s more.” I took a deep breath in like I was ready to spill it out in one breath. “So, every time I kiss Caleb, I have these visions. The night he took me to his aunt’s house, I saw something horrible when we kissed.”

Riley shifted in his seat and looked down.

“Sorry, I should have left that part out. I wasn’t thinking,” I said, now feeling uncomfortable.

“No, I’m sorry. You have every right to kiss someone else.”

“But that’s the thing, Riley. I just did it to get answers. I knew I’d have another vision.”

“It’s cool. But keep going. What happened after that?”

“Well, I freaked out and ran out of his aunt’s house as fast as I could before he could explain what I had seen. The next day, I went to this witch shop after searching topics online about witchcraft and I found a witch, who’s also a psychic, who read three tarot cards for me. One had this strange, triangular symbol on it. The symbol triggered my memories. In one of them, I saw myself stake a man through his heart, and right before my eyes, he turned to dust. The psychic told me the symbol means vampire hunter.”

He stared at me expressionless.

“It means I’m a vampire hunter,” I repeated.

He continued to stare as if he hadn’t heard me.

I laughed, throwing my head back dramatically, like I was losing my mind. “So, there’s that.”

“Whoa,” he said under his breath.

He looked at his burger as if he’d lost his appetite and set it down next to him. “This is intense, Mercy. I mean … vampire hunter?”

“Yeah, and also since it’s my birthday—”

“Happy birthday,” he snuck in there.

“Thanks, Riley, but it doesn’t really feel like it. My Awakening is tonight, so I’m supposed to become this all-powerful witch. I am scared and sort of losing it, but there isn’t anything I can do to stop it.”

“I will be with you through all of it.”

“Thank you. I hope it doesn’t freak you out, and I understand if you want nothing to do with me and this life. It’s dangerous, Riley.”

He grabbed my hand but hesitated at first. When I didn’t flinch, he gripped it tighter. “I’m with you until the end,” he promised.

The end. If only he knew I didn’t have an end.
