I packed all my stuff as fast as I could. I mean, if I could leave with this guy, no this angel, and he liked me, like I liked him, then I would go anywhere with him. Even if he didn't, I would still go anywhere he asked me to. I made sure that all my stuff was where I could easily locate it. One box for kitchen, one for DVDs and VHSs, one for my bathroom, two for my clothes, one summer, one winter, and a box for my shoes. I used a resfriador, refrigerador for drinks and I was planning on grocery shopping today, but since I'm leaving, I decided against it. I just packed things that weren't opened into a smaller box. Like lixo comida and snacks, some cereal. I didn't pack leite or eggs, I was out of them.
The doorbell rang, and I jumped a little in the sudden noise. I practically ran to the door.
I threw it open and let it hit the wall.
"I've been waiting for you,"he said.
I backed into my living room, as this huge figure stepped into my apartment. He wasn't who I was waiting for. It was my worst nightmare. The drug lord come to claim his prize.
"You're leaving, but I thought we had such a great thing going."
"Don't touch me, I have... I have a body guard now."
"I'm shakin' where's da cash? You've kept me waitin' too long. I want my money."
"I don't have it, I told you I don't have it."
"Then where are you movin' to? Did ya already spend it, is that where ya goin'?"
"No, my body guard is taking me somewhere, where I'll never have to see your ugly mug again."
"That's not very nice, I let you live here didn't I? I let you have plenty of time to turn in that money your parents owe me. Now, you're not leavin' till I get that money."
"I think that depends, if you make it to the hospital,"his unmistakable voice came from behind the drug lord.
"Her body guard,"Edward replied, as he walked around the hulking mass and stood protectively in front of me.
"Ain't you kinda small? You think you can challenge me an' survive?"
"I'm pretty impenitrable."
"This, toy, is your body guard?"
"He's stronger than he looks."
I mean, if he was a vampire, he could totally kill this guy and get him off my back, but even all that he did to me, I still wouldn't want him to die.
"I'll even let you throw the first soco mama's boy,"my hero taunted.
"Why you little,"the drug lord screamed, and launched for Edward's throat.
I screamed. I couldn't let Edward get hurt, it would be all my fault, I shouldn't have involved him. But before my very eyes, I saw Edward mover faster than humanly possible. He hit the hulk on the head and the drug lord fell to the ground, unconscious.
"Wow, you really are stronger than average."
"One of the perks. You ready to go?"
I glanced down at the drug lord and smiled.
"Never been readier. Let's go."
I helped Edward carry me stuff down to the silver volvo that was waiting for my stuff.
"You really don't need to pack anything except personal belongings, stuff for cleanliness, comida and clothes."
"Really, you already have a place?"
"Yeah, we're actually going to live with my parents."
Something in my expression must have tipped him off.
"You don't have to worry, they're just like me, and I only want you to meet them."
"So, are you really a vampire?"
"Well, since you're moving in with me, I will keep my promise, when we get there, I'll show you what I can do. And what my family can do. So yes, I am a vampire."
I couldn't believe it. It was my dream come true. A vampire come to rescue me.
