There's a moon in the sky somewhere I know
Waiting for all the love to burn below
If you fall and it happens all to soon
The Surfer Moon-Brian Wilson
She was an amazing teacher. And it made me fall harder for her.
Surprisingly, surfing was really hard. Even for a vampire. But did I love it. It made me feel free and I also had a reason to splash Poison whenever I felt like become ‘unbalanced’.
“Okay, now you’re doing it on purpose!” she yelled after I had splashed her for the fifth time.
I just smiled at her and went under the surf board. I looked up to her from under the waves, making a face at her. She laughed and pulled me up by my shoulders. Her touch brought shivers to my body and heat to where she touched.
“Can you feel that?” she asked me with a new light shone in her eyes.
“No…” I said slowly. Was she talking about the shivers she brought to my spine? The heat of her touch?
“Quickly, now! Follow me! Oi! Moony! Pads! Prongs! A big one is coming!” she yelled. I guess she didn’t feel the same. It kind of made my mood drop that she couldn’t feel what she did to me.
I looked to the boy lounged lazily before her yell. They jumped up and looked out to the sea. I followed their gazes and saw a wall of water heading our way.
“Holy crap!” I yell.
“Are you coming? It’s gonna be the ride of your life! You can ride with me if you like…”
I smiled. “You go. I think I’ll just watch.”
She smiled before taking her board and rushing out to the waves.
“Come on, Lupa! You’re going to miss it!” Sirius yelled.
“Keep you pants on Padfoot!” She retorted.
“Just come on!”
I watched her swim out to the sea. She swam in long strokes of her arms till she reached her friends. They were pretty far out, and that wave wasn’t getting farther away. They all turned ready to face the wall of water, and started swimming to be caught in its current.
I watched as she stood up on her board and leaned to the left. Zooming and zigzagging over the waves. Jumping them and making me have a heart attack after heart attack. A tunnel of water started forming and they all race though it one after another, James, Sirius, Remus, then Poison. She just gets out of the tunnel when it happened.
If I wasn’t a vampire, I probably never would have seen the bright flash of red hit Poison in the stomach. The flash hit her in the stomach, pushing her off balanced and into the harsh wall of wave.
I took a sharp intake of breath when she broke into the wave, splitting it two, and disappearing into the dark water.
“Where is she?” Esme gasp.
“She was hit by some sort of light,” I say, searching the waves for her.
The boys had also stopped ridding the waves to look for their missing sister. After minutes of torture, I dove into the ocean to take up my own search. I swam to where she first disappeared at and dive under. There! I see her! She was laying the ocean floor, not moving.
If she wasn’t in jeopardy of dying I would have stopped to marvel at the beauty of her. Her faced was relaxed and he fiery blue hair moved slowly around her face as if it was alive. Her eyes were closed and her lips were firmly together in perfect unison.
I swam until I reached her and quickly pulled her up to the surface. She still wasn’t moving or breathing. I swam quickly, not caring who saw my inhuman speed, to shore to get her to Carlisle. He would save her. He would. I couldn’t lose her when I just found her.
He appeared next to me in an instant and started searching for a pulse. I saw her energy was well drained and her life force was slowing fading.
“She dying! Hurry!” I cry.
“Calm, Jasper. Now, she needs CPR and she needs it now! On ever fifth pump I give, blow a lungful of air into her mouth,” he commands.
I do as I’m told. On his fifth pump I lean in and part her lips and deliver her life. At the same time, I poring energy and happiness into her.
I only hope it is enough.
Sorry for the wait!
