Megan pushed open the large door to the mansion, it creaked and echoed through the house. It was creepy and dark. She really didn't want to go in, but James was in here and she was not going to leave him alone.
She stepped in and had her hand on the hilt of her dagger, the large door slammed shut behind her and the force sent her face first into the dusty floor.
“Ew, ew, ew!!” She said. She jumped up wiping off the dust on her clothes and face - she hated dirt and dust. And this didn't make it any easier on her, especially with this old mansion full of bugs and dirt and dust. She shivered at the thought and kept on walking.
She had just realized it was pitch black in here, but she could see fine. Why am I able to see perfectly? She thought and shook her head and let the thought pass, she couldn't be thinking about who her godly parent was while she was trying to find James.
“Hey!” She heard someone yell at her, she looked up and sitting on the railing was a boy. Megan was surprised he could see her, he jumped down from the high railing and landed in front of her. He had black shaggy hair and black almond eyes with white skin, he wore a white t-shirt with blue jeans and wore a baseball hat that was on backwards. He had a sword strapped to his side and he looked like trouble.
“What are you doing in this mansion, little lady?” He said to Megan with a smirk, she instantly grabbed her dagger and was ready to fight this jerk.
“I'm trying to find my friend? Know anything about a boy who happened to be dragged in here against his will?” Megan asked with an annoyed tone in her voice, she already hated this guy and she didn't even know his name.
“I might have, I wasn't really paying attention. But I did hear some noise coming from the basement. But it's locked, so why don't you just stay up here with me?” He said and the smirked turned into a grin, Megan growled and in a flash a slit made its appearance on the boys cheek.
“Don't you ever try to flirt with me again or else I will personally kill you.” Megan said and put her dagger back into its sheath. The boy touched the slit on his cheek and grinned.
“I like a girl who's feisty. But I can tell that you don't like me, but sadly I am the only one who knows how to save your friend.” He said with a smirk and turned on his heel and started to walk away, Megan instantly grabbed his arm and he turned around to look at her.
“If you help me find my friend-” A sour taste crept into her mouth, she hated to say this. But if his guy was a big flirt. Then she knew how to get him to help her.
“-I'll let you kiss me.” She said and shivered, a smirk appeared on his face and he gave a nod.
“A deal it is!” He said and Megan sighed.
“So, where do we start?” She asked, they heard a scream from upstairs and it was a girl scream. James did not scream like a girl. Looks like there's others in this mansion too.
“Second floor Milady, please lead the way.” The boy said and the two made their way to the staircase and headed up. . .
