“-you have no idea! I mean my parents were like ‘no way are we getting a dog’ and then suddenly there’s a dog on our doorstep and my parents are in love with it!” you exclaimed, babbling to your best friend, Benny at your lockers. “I have no idea what happened, but I must be like the luckiest person in the world.”
“You sure are…” Benny smiled wistfully. Ethan shot him a dark look but you didn’t see it as you grabbed your textbooks and hurried down the corridor.
Calling over your shoulder as you left the two boys, “I’ll see you at lunch, yeah? Bye, Benny. Ethan.”
As soon as you had gone out of sight, Ethan slapped Benny across the arm and snapped, “Benny! You still haven’t told her? You know, she’s gonna work out sooner or later that it’s you who’s making all this fantastic stuff happen.”
“OK, well what do you want me to do then? Hm?” Benny retorted, turning to face the seer with crossed arms. “Because its the only way I can show her much I love her without saying anything.”
“Hey, Benny,” you greeted your friend as you found him waiting by your locker. opening said locker to grab your physics textbook, you gave a side glance and had to bite down hard on your lip to stop yourself from jumping him right then and there, because-
He was wearing a fucking leather jacket!
“Hey there, Y/N,” he drawled, leaning back against the neighbouring locker and from the corner of your eye, you could see him raking his eyes up and down your figure. Blushing, you remembered that you’d worn denim shorts and a tight tank top today- it was hot summer- and turned to face him, clutching your books to your chest.
“I’ve got Physics now, do you wanna meet at lunch?” you proposed.
With a wicked smirk on his face -that made you want to do all manner of dirty things with those lips- he replied, “Well, I was more thinking you could skip Physics and we’d go…some place else,” he said the last bit while taking a step closer to you and playing with the accessory dog tags around your neck.
“Umm,” you mumbled, flushing scarlet at his forwardness and chewed down on your lip while you thought, what the hell is he doing? What’s gotten into Benny?
“I think that’s a yes you’re looking for,” he murmured into your ear, warm breath making you shiver and your heart flutter. You felt his warm hand slide around your hip and pull you closer to you as he whispered, “Because I know you want me and if you skip class and come with me now, I will make sure that you’re screaming my name by the end of today.”
Aghast at this uncharacterism, especially from Benny- no matter how hot-, you shoved him away and spat, “You can fuck off if you think I’m that easy.”
You turned to see- Benny?- coming towards you (sans leather jacket, sigh) with an anger in his eyes you’d never seen before.
Squeezing your hand comfortingly as he brushed past you, he marched right up to the other Benny in the -thankfully- deserted corridor and landed him one right in the face. You gasped and covered your mouth with your hands as you saw leather jacket-less Benny kick other Benny hard in the stomach, then dive down to grab something from his pocket.
Straightening back up again, he had a photograph in his hand and clicked the fingers of his other hand to spark a small flame which he alighted the photo with. As the glossy paper burned, so did the Benny on the ground and you and the -good?- Benny were left alone.
“W-what?” you blurted out before Benny was in front of you and asking you concernedly if you were OK and if the other Benny hurt you. “Benny, I-I’m fine, just confused really. What the hell’s going on? Why were there two of you?”
“Umm, probably a conversation for another time,” he dismissed awkwardly, before shooting you that infamous goofy smile.
Sigh. You definitely preferred that cheesy, genuine smile to the wicked smirk of a dickbag in a leather jacket.
“Benny, come on,” Ethan pleaded, tugging at his best friend’s sleeve, “You’re gonna fuck something up and that’s gonna be real hard to explain to the Vice Principal.”
“I am not!” he retorted, “I’m getting better, E. Watch.”
Cracking his knuckles, he braced his hands and released a glowing purple which sparkled and shone for a second before firing uncontrollably forwards, straight at…
“Yeah, so then Mitch said-” you were cut off when something hit you in the chest and drove you, flying, backwards. Landing in a heap on the floor, you groaned and clutched your chest, falling back again.
Dashing over to your side, Sarah asked, “Oh my God! Y/N, are you alright?”
“Do I look alright to you?” You winced as you tried to sit up again, and caught sight of a rather sheepish-looking Benny Weir coming your way with Ethan at his heels.
“I am so sorry,” he apologised as soon as he was crouched by your side, “I totally didn’t mean to do that, I just- hey, is that a tail?”
“What?” you frowned, before following Benny’s gaze and screaming when you saw a long fluffy tail coming from the end of your spine. Running the coarse fur through your fingers, you marvelled for a moment at the glimmering auburn hairs, before you remembered that normal people didn’t have tails and slapped Benny hard on the shoulder.
Today we made an official announcement that there will be no Season 3 of My Babysitter’s A Vampire. I just wanted to take a moment to thank our incredibly talented cast –Matthew Knight, Vanessa Morgan, Atticus Mitchell, Cameron Kennedy and Kate Todd. May you live forever!
