Summer Break Blues
Meg managed to survive her senior year of high school as a vampire, and now she’s looking forward to a relaxing summer with her friends before trying to tackle college. Unfortunately, some unfinished business from the previous year rears its ugly head and Meg is forced to deal with the Sidhe who are distinctly unhappy that she killed one of their kind last winter. Then Ann’s parents vanish while they are on their annual summer vacation in Maine and it’s up to Meg and the rest of the gang to come to the rescue. Though she is still trying to figure out who, and what she has become, Meg and her friends feel they are up to the challenge. That is until things really start to fall apart.
Even though Steph and Alexander could see almost as well as I could, I was the only thing that kept them from being swept away. The waves picked up halfway to the lighthouse. One about knee height rolled across the slick black rocks. I braced and tightened my grip on Steph and Alexander’s hands, desperately holding on. I sensed from Alexander that my grip ground bones together, but I was sure they’d rather have bruised hands than be swept out to sea.
The wave hit us and tried to take my feet out from under me, but my Vampire…something…allowed me to keep my balance and stand firm against the onslaught. Steph staggered but kept her feet and I heard Alexander swearing, but he didn’t fall. We pushed onward, slowly. Steph tried to hurry but the water came up faster than I expected. Well, I didn’t know that much about oceans, but it seemed like it came up quickly. Maybe it was the storm.
The next wave that crashed into us hit me mid-calf. I stood firm. Alexander stumbled into my back and Steph lost her footing, the water dragging her until I jerked her upright by her abused arm. I pulled her back toward me so we could hear each other.
“We should go back!” The pounding surf drowned out my words but Steph knew what I said and shook her head.
“We’re over halfway. The lighthouse will shelter us!”
I winced at her shout, able to hear her much better than she could hear me. Alexander pushed himself against my back, wrapping one arm around my stomach, which I thought was weird, but then the waves hit us again and I understood. He held on for dear life.
“Steph is right.” He practically shouted in my ear. “Let’s keep going.”
Even with the danger I was aware of how close he was. I pulled away, almost pushing Steph forward as I dragged him along.
We were battered by several more waves, and I tried to hurry, not wanting my friends to drown. I was strong, but I knew nature was stronger.
