Chapter Three: Falling Hard (Part 3)

Jess blinked, more than a little shocked to hear him say this. Well, that was new, she thought. Nobody had ever described her as fun before.

“Oh… Why?”

She decided to ask, wanting to know why he thought this when no one else did. Felix almost blushed, but was able to restrain himself and project some of his ice coolness out as he ponders Jessica’s question. He rubbed one of his palms down his pant leg and looked down at her.

“Well, I’ve never had any kind of fun like this my entire life. I usually just played with humans to get my way, but that gets boring really fast and making them do stuff loses its charm quickly.”

Felix got a far-off look in his eyes.

“Jessica, you are so different and special and not because you refuse to drink human blood, which is admirable. Despite your vampirism, you have retained who you were your whole life.”

He slipped into the pool and held her close, his eyes next to hers as his forehead touches hers.

“I’ve never known who I really am, but with you…being…kind….caring…loving…it comes naturally to me, as naturally as being an arse around everyone else. With you, I’m not Sith. With you, I’m just a normal guy in love with a normal girl, even though we are anything but normal. With you, I feel alive. With you…Being with you is like heaven on earth.”

Jess almost gaped, but managed not to. She had no idea that he felt this way or saw her in a different light than everyone else. It felt…nice to not be seen only as what she was, as a vampire, and not who she was. It made her feel that she could tell him anything and he would not judge her. When he basically said he was in love with her, her eyes widened. With him so close to her, her breath caught. She was not even sure how to respond, feeling so many emotions at once.


She mumbled, then blushed at how stupid a response that was.

“I-I mean, uhm…”

Usually she knew exactly what to say, but not this time.

Felix smiled slightly, his upper lips lifted in one corner.

“Shut up, Jessica. I’m going to kiss you now.”

He cupped her cheek in his hand and brushed his lips against hers, loving the feel of her lips against his.

“I could get used to this.”

He kissed her again, but this time more passionately and with fervor. Jess’s eyes widened slightly but quickly relaxed again, smiling faintly. She decided she liked this and him more importantly. She really liked him. I could get used to this, too, she thought. When he kissed her again, she smiled against his lips and kissed him back, relaxing against him more. Felix felt her return the kiss and relax in his arms. He pulled away from her with a snarky grin on his face that slowly morphed into something softer.

“We should get going. I thought I heard voices a moment ago.”

He broke the spell, but kept his fingers entwined with hers. Jess nodded slightly and bit her lip, looking around before she climbed out of the water, still a little surprised at what just happened. She dried off with a towel and looked at him.

“Where to?”

She asked. Felix followed her lead and glanced at his watch, which was waterproof. He frowned slightly and tilted his head to the side.

“Normal people would eat dinner at this time but since we aren’t….how about staking out the library for anything I haven’t read?”

He listens to what he had just said and winced.

“Sorry. Old habits die hard.”

He winced again, but kept his mouth shut. She raised an eyebrow and smirks a little.

“Sure, let’s go to the library to scope out what you haven’t read. Which might be alot, due to the length of it.”

She paused.


She mumbled, recalling what she had just said.

“Let’s just go…”

She sighed softly and pulled on the shorts she had brought with her before she turned and started walking with him to the library. Noel pondered over her blunder and stopped her with a hand to her arm.

“I don’t get it.”

His face was all serious as he tried to think up the insult her statement would cause and found none. Jess looked at him before she smirked a little, and then laughed slightly. She was not sure whether it was a good thing that he did not get it or not.

“You don’t have to. Let’s just go.”

Chapter Three: Falling Hard (Part 2)

“Don’t hate me.”

He said, before his wings disappeared and they both entered into free fall. Jess gaped, realizing that his wings had disappeared before they began falling. The world around her seemed to quicken around them as they fell. As they neared the ground, she closed her mouth before they crashed into the water. The water surrounded them in a warm embrace and Felix enjoyed the moment of weightlessness and the fact that they both could not die from the fall. She was already dead and he was immortal. He broke the surface of the pool, kicking up with his legs and waited for Jess to resurface. He had never asked her about her death…he wondered what it felt like to live and die, since he will never experience either. When the water engulfed her from the fall, Jess saw bubbles everywhere from the impact they made from the giant splash as the weight of their bodies took in the water. After a moment, she resurfaced and looked at him.

“Well that was fun.”

She commented. Who knew, she thought.

“The thrills of being my girl.”

He winked at her and blinked…did he really just say that? Wow, he thought. He was getting cocky in his old age. He swam over to the ladder and pulled himself up and out, before offering her his hand that snaked with shadows. Jess paused, wondering if he actually meant to say that. Whatever, he was joking anyway, she decided. But still, she hesitated slightly before she took his hand and let him help her out of the water. She looked up at the big slide, which looked kind of fun. Glancing at the slide and then down at her, he said.

“I think you need a buddy to go down that big slide little lady.”

Felix smirked at her before taking off at a sprint.

“Beat you to the top.”

He called over his shoulder actually laughing. He realized that Jess had made him laugh more in the short time he has known her than in all of his existence. Jess grinned a little and ran towards the slide, but got there a split second after Felix. She could have run faster and her competitiveness almost forced her to, but for once, she wanted to enjoy this and not rush.

“Hm. You made it first.”

She said wryly, looking at him and then at the slide. It looked like two people could fit in that big thing.

“Dead Ladies, first.”

He motioned for her to go in front of him with a stupid happy grin on his face. He felt like an idiot, but it was addicting: being nice to her and feeling feelings besides cold and hard. Jess smirked slightly.

“How kind of you.”

She said jokingly, before she went ahead and got on the slide. Not waiting for him, she laughed a little and waved before she started to slide down it.

“See ya!”

Felix hopped in after her, hoping to catch up to her in time in order to…do what? Kiss her? No…He could not do that…Could he? He knew humans sort of do that thing, but did he really want to be that type of guy? He realized that he did not care. He just wanted to kiss Jess. After going all the way down the slide, Jess fell in the water and stayed down there a minute, coming back up when she heard the splash telling her that Felix was off the slide and in the water. She looked at him.

“Have fun?”

She grinned slightly.

“Depends on what your version of fun is.”

He replied with a sight wry grin. The truth was he really was having fun with an ex-human no less. Something he never would have thought possible after Brooklynn…but she could not really count as human seeing how she was not. Jess raised an eyebrow slightly, but shrugged.

“I don’t know, what’s your version of fun?”

She asked hesitantly. She did not think it mattered what her version of fun was. She had to keep her eyes on his face and not at the water running down him, which was surprisingly distracting.


Felix replied simply, drying off with a towel before dangling his legs into the pool observing her. She was fun to him. He had never had as much fun as the short amount of time that he has spent with her. Since he did not get an afterlife, she was his heaven.

Chapter Three: Falling Hard

Felix ushered Jess inside and smiled at her.

“The coast is clear.”

“Yep, looks like it. I’ll be right back…”

Jess nodded slightly and walked further into the room. When she found her bathing suit in her unpacked bag, she glanced back to where Felix was.

“You’re gonna have to leave for a minute.”

Felix smirked and gestured towards Lolita’s room, the one with the enclosed bathroom.

“Help yourself.”

He slid of his shirt and dipped his feet into the pool in the middle of the room. A slide drained into it from above. She nodded and went into the bathroom, closing the door behind her and changing into the bathing suit. She did not like bikinis, so she had a one piece. If she had to wear a bathing suit at all, it would be at least a semi modest one. She walked out and looked at the water.

“So this is the fun you were talking about?”

She smirked a little.

“No. This is the one I was talking about.”

He said as he picked her up and threw her in. He watched from the pool’s edge as she landed in the water with a smirk. Now this way fun, he thought, Very fun. Jess silently chided herself when she let out a small squeal as the chilly water engulfed her after he threw her in. When she came up to the surface of the water, she frowned at him.

“Yeah, so fun.”

She said sarcastically. He smirked at Jess and jumped in after her.

“The fun’s just beginning.”

He wrapped his arm around her as the wings made of feathers and inky shadows spread out across his shoulder blades. He flapped his wings against the water and air, and they hovered over the water. Felix pretended to walk on it.

“Ever flew before?”

Her eyes widened a little as they lay on the wings. Even if they did look a bit more, let me say, gothic, they were still…amazing. She realized he had asked her a question, and she snapped out of the fixation on his wings and shook her head.

“Not really.”

She replied, but her eyes widened again, when she looked down and saw they were flying…Well, hovering. Felix smirked.

“That’s good. My friend and I were under the impression that your kind turned into bats that could fly. You don’t really turn into a bat do you? Even though, that would be sort of amazing.”

He kicked the water at his feet and took them higher up into the room. He was planning to free fall with her later, but wanted her to take everything else in first before he scared the evil out of her…funny…’cause she is a vampire…sometimes he should not even tell a joke to himself. With his shirt off, the large clear crystal around his neck was visible, but before Jess’s very eyes, it turned blood red, then black as night and remained that way. Jess saw the clear crystal suddenly change its color, and then turn to black. Odd, she thought. It must have meant something, though, but she did not know what. She raised an eyebrow slightly at him, asking such a weird question.

“Uhm. Well…”

Maybe, she was the only vampire with this problem, but she had never turned into a bat and flew.

“Probably others do.”

She mumbled. It is not like she wanted to admit that she could not. That would be embarrassing. Felix exhaled a huge dramatic sigh.

“Thank Otherworld. This wouldn’t be half as exciting if you could have turned into a bat and fly away. I like that you’re not like other girls.”

He smiled and flew higher, until they reached the ceiling and hovered. The inky black shadows slinked towards Jessica, until Felix’s skin began to glow from within.

“Sorry, but I don’t think you would want them touching you. They like neither light nor heat.”

Noel produced both. Jess could not help feeling a bit relieved when he said this. No one had ever said that to her before, and she was not sure whether she should be worried or happy that he did. She tensed slightly, spotting the shadows. She had seen things like this before, but was not sure how to get them to go away. Usually they did not bother her. She was glad they left, though. Glancing once at the ceiling, she realized how high they were as she looked down at the water below. Felix bit his lip a little wickedly.
