Stuck With Him: Kai Parker
My eyes flickered open and I groaned at the bright sun that blinded me. “Shit.” I cursed, covering my eyes with my hands as I sat up. I rubbed them before moving my hands and blinking until they adjusted to the light.
That’s when I thought. Where am I?
It seemed like a new strange place only it was deserted, not a soul in sight. Puzzled, I stood up brushing off my clothes which were torn and covered in dirt.
“Just perfect.” I muttered sarcastically, moving my hair out of my face. “Just amazing.”
I began walking around in search of someone. “Hello?” I called out to the empty streets. “Hello is anyone there?”
No response, I sighed. “Guess it’s just me.” I felt around in my jacket pockets for my phone however I didn’t find it. “Shit!”
“I need some clothes.” I looked down at my torn jeans and shirt cringing. “Now.” I walked around the streets for the nearest shop. I went inside the store, in search for everything I would had needed.
Swinging down the aisles on the shopping kart I hummed to myself, filling the silence that hung throughout the place. “I’m in the business of misery. Let’s take it from the top.” I sang to myself.
I couldn’t sing to save my life but I enjoyed singing and there was no one around to judge which was good yet bad.
“She’s got a body like a ho-” I paused when the sound of something being smashed appeared. Stopping on my tracks, I scanned around. “Who’s there?” I questioned, hiding my fear.
No reply. I shook my head, clearing it of my crazed thought. “Great, I’m going crazy already.” I mumbled, starting to walk again.
“This is all a dream. This is all a dream.” I repeated, pinching my arm tight. I hissed in pain each time, and let out a loud sigh of frustration.
“Its not a dream.” I whined, lying down on the sofa. I had spotted a house and was crashing in it, also I had made myself a survival bag containing everything I’d need if I ever had to go somewhere.
I sighed, fiddling with the silver chain around my neck.
“I love you, kitten.” He told me, wrapping his arms around my waist.
“I love you too.” I said, he smiled and kissed me with me kissing back.
I gasped, sitting up straight. “What the hell? Kitten?” I exclaimed, bringing my knees to my chest and hugged them. “Who was that?”
That small image, flashed in my head it was blurred but I was kissing someone. And I apparently had loved him.
Shaking away that vision, I picked up my black rucksack and made my way upstairs. I still felt a little shaken up but I continued to stay calm as I chose a bedroom.
Yawning, I decided on a master bedroom with its own personal bathroom. Taking of my bag and looking around the room, I nodded. “Fancy.” I kicked off my old trainers and threw them in a corner.
After taking a wash and brushing my teeth, I put on my brand new pyjamas I’d ‘bought’ they were a pair of white shorts with a black vest.
I retrieved my hairbrush from my bag and began to brush through my damp hair, cursing loudly. I grabbed my hair up into a ponytail before climbing into the bed.
I sighed in comfort, moving into my sleep in position. As I closed my eyes, I forced myself to fall into my dreamland.
So far it’s been two weeks since I’ve arrived in Mystic Falls, I discovered the name a while ago, and I’m going CRAZY!!!!
I’m serious!! The other day I spent two full hours counting the amount of cups and plates I found in the house. 75 cups and 97 plates by the way.
I also can’t stop talking to myself, it as becoming a habit. Yesterday, I had an argument with myself just to prove I wasn’t going mad!!
The weird visions of me and some guy have suddenly stopped which is great because they were just plain creepy.
However I do believe I’m not alone. I know *cue gasp*. Its because every now and again, I’ll hear noises like footsteps.
Anyway coming towards an end, if this is ever found by someone. Please remember me, Riley Campbell, as a confused teen who doesn’t remember anything.
I finished writing my diary entry for that day and shut the diary. I was keeping a diary to stop myself from going crazy.
Swinging slightly on the swing, I was in a playground because I was sick of being indoors 24/7.
Shoving, my diary and pen in my backpack Zeke (yes I named my bag) I zipped him up before throwing him over my shoulder.
“What to do?” I asked myself, playing with my fingers. I sighed, running my hand through my hair as I kicked the grass beneath me.
“Is someone out there?” I shouted, my head snapping up as I heard a noise.
Once again there wasn’t a response. I sighed, shrugging my shoulders. “Must be my imagination.” I paused and cursed. “Stop talking to yourself, Riley.”
Climbing off the swing, I went towards a massive willow tree and placed Zeke down on the grass. Laying, down I rested my head on Zeke to relax.
The sun peeked through the willow tree and felt nice against my skin. I smiled and closed my eyes, comfortable.
Suddenly the ray of sunlight disappeared and I opened my eyes to see some guy standing over me. “You don’t make a very good window.” I told him. “Who are you?” I guessed this was the guy who I thought was also with me.
The guy looked down at me and I couldn’t help but instantly think. Damn he’s hot!
“Oh sorry, where are my manners?” I rolled my eyes at his fake politeness. “My names Kai Parker, what’s yours?” He introduced, sitting down opposite me.
“Riley, Riley Campbell.” I answered, sitting up and crossing my legs.
“Now may I ask how you got here, Ri?” Kai asked, smirking.
I rolled my eyes. “Riley and beats me. What about you, Malachai?” I knew his name was short for something.
He glared at me. “Don’t call me that.” He growled, my eyes widened at his tone.
“Jeez who pissed in your cereal?” I muttered, earning a puzzled look from Kai.
“Who what?” From looking at his face he was truly lost about my comment.
I shook my head. “Never mind.” I said. “Why are you here?”
Kai smirked, chuckling a little. “I was at the wrong place at the wrong time.”
“Shame on you.” I nodded.
“Whatever, Ri.” He replied, rolling his eyes suddenly leaning in and flicking my forehead.
I held my head. “Ow, Malachai?”
He scowled at me. “Don’t call me that, Ri. And there was a bug on your forehead, I was simply flicking it away.”
Standing up, I brushed my clothes and throwing Zeke on my back. Kai also stood, following me as I walked away. “Where are you going, Ri?” He asked, catching up so he was by my side.
I rolled my eyes. “Away from you, Malachai.” He shoved me and I stumbled a little but caught myself and pushed him back. “Bit rude.”
“Don’t call me that, Ri.” He repeated again. “But why are you leaving, you seemed lonely earlier.” Kai smirked.
Stopping in my tracks, I glanced to him. “So you were watching me?” I asked, he nodded and I started to walk faster away. “Now I’m definitely leaving.”
He laughed. “I was making sure if you weren’t crazy even though you talk to yourself a lot.” Kai explained, smirking widely.
Rolling my eyes, I walked into my house. As I came inside I took off Zeke and threw him on the sofa. “So do tell me Ri, how you got here?”
“I already said, I don’t know Malachai.” I smirked as he glared. “I can’t remember a thing, one minute I was in England the next here with you.”
Kai grinned, leaning in forward and resting his head in his hands. “Oh you’re English.” He said, I nodded sarcastically. “That’s cool.”
“Yeah, very.” I replied sarcastically. “So what’s it like being here?”
He shrugged. “Well its a repeat of the same day, no one else is around expect me and you. And….” He paused, tapping his chin. “Times frozen which explains why I still have my good looks.”
I gave him a surprised look. “What the hell? What does that mean? Where are we?”
Kai rolled his eyes. “Isn’t it obvious?” I was still lost. “We’re stuck in a prison world.”
“Its a prison made for one specific person. Witches must have put you in here.”
“Yes witches. I’m one myself.”
“Well you are definitely cuckoo up in the head, Malachai.” I backed away, picking up Zeke in my process. “So, I’m just gonna go but it was nice meeting you.”
Turning around I went to the door when I felt myself being pulled back. “Don’t leave, we were having fun.” He said into my ear, wrapping his arms around my waist.
I took deep breaths. “I’ll have to pass on the lovely offer, but maybe another time.” I struggled against his grip but he tightened it.
“Bye, bye, Ri.” Before I got the chance to respond, Kai injected something into my neck making everything black.
“Ri, Ri, Ri, Ri, Ri.” Someone said, poking my cheek. I groaned, opening my eyes and groaned again when I saw it was Kai. He grinned at me. “Finally you’re awake.”
I looked around and noticed I was tied to a chair and the ropes had some weird smell to them. “What did you do to me?”
Kai tilted his head to the right slightly. “You wouldn’t stay, so I made you.” He confessed, biting his lip in a cute way.
What the hell, Riley? I thought. This guy’s clearly crazy.
“Alright, what’s on the ropes it stinks.” I cringed, looking for Zeke but I couldn’t find him. “And where’s my bag?”
Kai pointed to the sofa where Zeke was. “Ok, so you’re not a vampire.”
“Vampire, what is wrong with you?” I questioned, feeling a little dizzy.
He rolled his eyes. “Me, your the one who can’t remember why she’s in a prison world!” He snapped, making me flinch away.
“Its not my fault and calm you drama queen.” I snapped.
Kai rolled his eyes. “Whatever. I’m going to untie you now but only because I want pancakes.” He said, cutting my ropes loose.
I held my sore wrists, rubbing them to ease the pain. “Make your own pancakes.” I said as he sat on the sofa, opposite me.
“No, I hurt my ankle.” Kai held his ‘injured’ ankle and pouted to me.
Glaring, I shook my head. “And my ears hurt from listening to your bullshit but i’m not complaining.” I glared. “Do it yourself, Malachai.”
The look on Kai’s face went to (being honest) quite scary as he lifted his hand up and started whispering something.
“What are y-” I stopped, speaking because a sudden wave of tortuous pain went through my head.
I screamed, dropping to my knees as he continued. “Kai, stop!” I begged, tears streaming down my face. It felt like my head was being teared open.
Finally, the pain went and I lifted up my head to Kai. He smirked at me. “Please hurry with the pancakes, Ri. I’m starving.”
“How did you do that?” I whispered, wiping my eyes clean.
Kai chuckled. “Magic, I am a witch after all.” He replied.
“You’re nothing but a prick.” I mumbled, standing up and leaving the room to the kitchen.
“I heard that.” Kai said.
I rolled my eyes. “I don’t care.”
In the kitchen, I washed my hands and tied up my hair into a ponytail. “How old are you?” I jumped at the sound of Kai’s voice.
Turning around, I saw him on sitting at the island with a newspaper. “I’m 18 but 19 soon.” I told him, quietly still quite scared of him.
Kai nodded. “Always had a thing for younger girls.” He said, I blushed a little.
“How old are you?”
“I’m……” He paused and counted his fingers. “40, I think lost track after 25.” He grinned, resting his head in his hands.
“That’s explains the wrinkles on your face.” I chuckled, Kai glared at me and I smirked getting out the ingredients.
As I started to make the pancakes, I felt Kai’s stare at me. “What are you looking at?” I asked, looking back at him.
Kai shrugged. “You because you’re pretty.” I blushed at his comment, hiding my face by looking down.
I heard him chuckle as I continued to make the pancakes.
After a while, I slowly lifted my head back up to him trying to read his face. “I know I’m beautiful, Ri. But staring is just creepy.” He smirked, not taking his gaze off the newspaper in his hands.
Blushing, I went back to making the pancakes.
“Give me the paper.” I argued to Kai as we ate our pancakes. I didn’t feel as scared of him as I did earlier. I actually grew a liking for annoying him.
He rolled his eyes. “No.” He spat out food as he spoke and it landed on my leg, I looked disgusted and he laughed.
Slapping his arm, I flicked off the food onto the floor. “Gross.” I muttered. “Now, hand me the newspaper.” Kai sighed but slipped the newspaper to me.
I thanked him, looking over the crossword I was doing.
We had a bet in the amount of time it would take me to complete the crossword: under a hour I won, over a hour Kai won.
It was for who was sleeping in the master bedroom tonight and who was in the guest room.
So far I had spent 30 minutes and done two lines. Kai had insisted to help me but I would had to give him my pancakes. “Just give up already.”
I shook my head, taking a bite from my pancake and chewing slowly to rub it in Kai’s face that I still had some left.
“This is so nice.” I moaned, smirking at him as he glared.
“Whatever, Ri.” He muttered, running his hand down his face. It was quite late at night.
“Riley.” I corrected, sick of that ridiculous nickname. “It’s Riley.”
Kai shrugged at me, tapping his fingers on the counter as I focused on the crossword but he was pissing me off big time.
“Can you not?” I snapped, Kai smirked at me.
“Can you not what?” He grinned, I rolled my eyes, shoving my plate in his direction. “Giving in already, Ri? I expected more of you.” He chuckled, throwing on a huge chunk of jam to the pancake before eating it with his hands.
I cringed at him and he smirked, doing it again. “You’re disgusting.” I said, I hated jam with a passion. “I hate jam.” I muttered.
Kai gave me a shocked look. “What is wrong with you, Ri?” He asked.
I shook my head at him standing up and refilled my drink, as I came back I saw Kai had ate the whole pancake and completed the crossword. “Show off.” I mumbled, sitting back down.
“I’m just smarter than you Ri.” Kai smirked, eating jam from the jar using his fingers. Cringing, I looked away from him.
“You’re such a child, Malachai.” I stated, he glared at me. “Oh my mistake Kai.” I corrected, sarcastically and he rolled his eyes.
“Sometimes I just wanna kill you, Ri.” He said, I raised my eyebrows. “But then I’d have no one to make pancakes for me.”
“I’m touched.” I said, sarcastically and punched his arm.
“Sore loser much, Ri.” Kai grinned.
I scoffed, kicking his shin and he kicked me back harder. I hissed in pain, holding my shin. “Can you even die here?” I asked, he shook his head and I nodded. “Great.”
Kai grinned at me, continuing to eat his jam. “Guess you’re stuck with me, Ri.”
“Oh the joys.” I replied sarcastically.
And that ladies and gentleman was the day I met the one and only Kai Parker.
