There was something different with Sophia Blake, and Aiden knew it the moment they had their first encounter. He watched her carefully, the way she walked, the way she talked, how cynical and sometimes cryptic the petite brunette was. Aiden had his suspicions about her, but there was still something about her that made him question whether or not he was right to assume that the girl was, in fact, a vampire. No amount of research or reading could help him solve this problem. He quickly found out that vampires, along with the rest of the supernatural world, blended in quite well with humans. They were good at fitting in, and perhaps Sophia Blake had just been through a lot, which made her the way she was. At first glance she was doll-like, too innocent to be a creature of the night. But as soon as she uttered her first words to the boy, he knew she was anything but innocent, or even sweet.
It was their second or third encounter, their conversations always seemed to lead to some sort of confrontation. They were hesitant and never too revealing, and banter was always present. Aiden had never been good with talking to girls, unless he had grown up with them. The girls at his high school couldn’t keep up with him, and hardly even noticed when he was giving them a backhanded compliment, or was being sarcastic. They claimed him as weird, and usually avoided talking to him. Sophia was smart enough to keep up with him and even countered his remarks, no holding back. Or perhaps she was holding back, in a different way. It was her cryptic words telling him to watch what he said around her is what got his mind reeling. He was always over-analyzing everything, but he had a feeling he wasn’t this time. The blonde watched the girl walk away from him, caught up in his thoughts, as usual. He shook his head, maybe he was taking a risk but he simply wanted to know. Curiosity always got the best of him, especially when it came to the supernatural. He pursed his lips, watching her retreating figure before quickly following after her. It wasn’t hard, considering how short she was and how long his strides were. “Hey, Hey wait up!” He called when he was only a few feet away from her. Aiden hesitated for a few moments before he tentatively reached his hand out, about to put his hand on her shoulder to get her to stop.
