At School gate
Jin: *Sees Mai with Nick kissing at the school gate.* MAI!
Mai: *Hears her father and breaks the kiss.* Dad? What are you doing here?
Jin: It’s your mother. She’s not doing well.
Mai: What’s wrong with mom? *Looks shocked*
Jin: I tell you at home. *Sighs*
Nick: I have bad feeling about this? *Says to Mai’s ear.*
Mai: *Looks at Nick.* What do you mean?
Nick: *Stands up and walks to Mai’s father.* Sir… You sure that’s it?
Jin: Mai… Who is this? *Pointed Nick for not answering him.*
Mai: Dad… This is Nick. He’s my friend.
Jin: Friend? Do you usually kiss your friends? *Looked at Mai worried.*
Mai: *Sighs* Dad stop. So what if I kissed him?
Jin: You are turning 17 soon. Can I be worried about my daughter?
Nick: *Writes something to paper and shows it to Jin.* I hope her mom is fine.
Jin: *Reads the paper and sighs.* She’s not.
Nick: *Sighs and swears ugly.*
Mai: What? *Looks at Nick.*
Jin: *Gives paper to Mai for read.*
Nick: I really think I should go with you and your dad. *Sighs*
Mai: *Gulps and looks at her father.* Let’s go then.
Nick: *Touches Mai’s arm gently and whispers.* It’s dangerous.
Mai: I don’t fuc….
Nick: *Covers her mouth to stop her talking.* Stop…
Jin: Please, Nick… I have to take her home. *Looks scared.*
Mai: *Moves Nick’s hand on her mouth.* I’m going Nick.
Nick: *Pulls her to a hug and sighs.* Then I’ll come too.
Jin: We are fine without you, Nick.
Nick: I had enough with this shit… Sir? *Looks at Jin*
Mai: Nick please don’t. *Pulls him close to her.*
Nick: *Whispers quietly to Mai.* I can sense her. And I can read your dad’s mind.
Jin: What is going on?
Nick: Mai… I have to tell him. *Sighs and gulps.*
Jin: Tell me what?
Nick: *Turns to look at Jin and sighs.* I’m vampire.
At School Backyard
Brian: So… Do you usually trust you dad’s information? *Looks at Anna.*
Anna: He’s been hunting vampires his whole life. Why would he lie?
Brian: It’s just sounds… *Try to find words*
Anna: Sounds what?
Brian: Unreal. How Mai could turn from having sex with Vampire? She’s half blood.
Anna: I’m only learning, but I trust my dad.
Brian: I never had met half-blood before until Mai.
Anna: Me either. These 2 days has been crazy. Mostly to Mai.
Brian: You know… We have old library at our home. Maybe we can find something from there about this.
Anna: Are you saying my dad is wrong?
Brian: Of course not. Just want to be sure cause… *Sighs and looks to Anna’s eyes.*
Anna: What? *Notice Brian staring to her eyes.*
Brian: *Smiles and leans to kiss her.*
Anna: *Smiles and moves back.* Brian… Cause what?
Brian: Isn’t it obvious? *Touches her hands with his and smiles.*
Anna: Oh… *Smiles*
Brian: Yeah, but… It’s risky. *Sighs and sits on bench.*
Anna: The risky that I will take. *Smiles and sit on his lap to face him.*
Brian: Anna… I could break you. *Puts his hands behind her back.*
Anna: Yeah you could. *Looks at Brian smiling.*
Brian: *Is about to say something, but feels like someone is staring at them.* Jesse? I can hear you.
Anna: *Looks to right, but doesn’t see Jesse and then turns to look left to see Jesse smiling.*
Jesse: Sorry. I didn’t want to interrupt your make out. *Smiles*
Brian: We aren’t making out. *Looks at Jesse.*
Anna: We kissed. *Whispers to Brian reminding him*
Brian: *Chuckles and nods.*
Jesse: Just wanted you to know that Nick and Mai are gone.
Anna: *Turns to look at Jesse shocked.* What? Where?
Jesse: I felt Nick’s sense and read his mind. Mai’s parents are in danger.
Brian: What kind of danger?
Jesse: *Tells Brian in his mind and lifts his eyebrows.*
Brian: Fudge! *Looks shocked.*
Anna: What? *Looks at both confused.*
Brian: *Looks at Anna worried.* It’s not good.
Anna: Please tell me. I can’t read your minds like you two.
Jesse: It’s “you know who”. *Tried to tell Anna about Candice.*
Anna: Can… *Felt Brian’s hand on her mouth.*
Brian: *Shakes his head.* No…
Jesse: Are we gonna go and… *Shows with his fingers killing signs*
Brian: *Nods and looks to Anna.* But not you.
Anna: *Looks at Brian shocked mouth open.* Why? I’m slayer! I kill…
Brian: *Puts his hand once again on her mouth.* I know, but she’s too strong for you.
Anna: *Moves his hand away.* Bullshit! I had killed her brother and he was stronger than her.
Jesse: Yeah… There’s good point, but… *Walks closer to Anna.* It almost cost your life.
Brian: Jesse is right, babe. Please stay back on this one.
Anna: No way. If Mai is there then so will I. *Stands up off Brian’s lap and started to walk.
Jesse: Damn… How you can stand her? *Looks at Brian who looked after Anna.*
Brian: I know she’s hard to handle, but she’s kind of protecting us from her dad. And I love her. *Looks at Jesse when stands up from bench.*
Jesse: Wow… You never said those words before. *Looks surprised.*
Brian: *Smiles.* I know. I might say to her when is the right time.
Jesse: By the way… *Stands next to Brian.* Nick told Mai’s father that he’s vampire.
Brian: *Looks at Jesse surprised shocked.* He did what?
At Mai’s home
Candice: *Waits with June, who is tied on chair, to Jin coming back with Mai*
June: *Looks at Candice angrily and feels her wrists feel numb*
Candice: June… I can read your mind. *Looks at June.*
June: *Only stares her.*
Candice: *Chuckles* She will come with me, June. She’s my baby.
June: *Tried to scream through the scarf that is around to cover her mouth.*
Candice: She got my blood. Kind of yours too, but after all… She’s mine. *Smiles and sits on her lap.*
June: *Tear fall to her cheek.*
Candice: Oh don’t cry, June. I will take good care of her. *Smiles and taps Junes cheek*

Mai: Are you okay? *Looks at Jin worried.*
Jin: No I’m not. I’m afraid. *Looks at Mai.*
Mai: You should be. I can’t still believe that you and mom kept secret from me. *Sighs*
