This is my first story, so i'll be a little naive to the ways you're probably
This is Lilly George...
She moved to the 'poor' part of Pleasantview about three months ago.
Of course, even the poor part of Pleasantview has standards and is considered luxury by people living in the slums of Downtown SimCity.
With cute, extremely tiny houses...
... the 'poor' area of Pleasantview is the ideal place to live if you have very
little money, yet want a... pleasant... lifestyle.
Next door to Lilly lives Janet Smithers.
Janet is an elderly woman who still likes to live life to the full.
She has no family in Pleasantview and her husband passed away 5 years ago so she lives alone in her little blue house which is decorated... tastefully.
Across the road from Janet lives the Jackson Family.
Sarah (Mother), Ella (Top), and Lucas (Bottom), cram their lives into a small, basic home. Their father, Freddie Jackson, died 6 months ago in a car accident and Sarah has since struggled to support her family.
With no job, and currently living on benefits, she regularly enlists the help
of her good friend Janet Smithers, who has supported her ever since Freddie's death.
Next door to Sarah lives Josh (Left) and Jack (Right) Turner.
They are two brothers who live in a trailer wasting their lives away, well Jack does at least. Josh owns the Turneround Coffee Bar next door to their trailer.
He put all his savings into it and has since worked extremely hard to get it up and running. It is now quite profitable, but still not enough for a new house.
Across from the Turneround Coffee Bar is Lilly's Bar.
Owned by Lilly George, she opened it when she first moved here. Like Josh, she put all her savings into it, including her inheritance from her parent's death. Her parents died last year when their aeroplane crashed on the way to Florida.
Lilly's Bar is the most popular bar in the poor district already...
But it still doesn't make enough profit to give Lilly a better life.
Of course, nothing ever goes right in Pleasantview, despite it's name.
Theres definatley something brewing, and it doesn't feel good...

"A Georgian Tale" - Chapter One
"Ahhhhhhhhh!" Lilly screamed "No... no, please, not them!"
Lilly was tossing and turning in her bed, throwing her arms and legs around
in the restriction of her quilt as if something was attacking her.
"No! No! Muuuuuuuuum! Daaaaaaaad! NOOOOOO!" she cried
And then, like a shot, Lilly sat up in her bed - her eyes wide open, her breathing heavy, sweating dripping from her forehead creating a pool of water on her bed.
She looked around the room, realising she was in the safety of her own home. "A nightmare" she said to herself "it was just a nightmare."
She looked out of the window - it was morning.
She pushed the covers back and shuffled into the bathroom slowly, wiping her forehead with her hand gently. She clapsed some water in her hands,
splashing it on her face to refresh herself, staring into the mirror - "Just a nightmare" she reassured herself again.
Her nightmare was powerful, so powerful it took her a while to calm down.
Her heart kept beating fast and loud like a drum, the thuds sending vibrations down her body. She got changed, eat, and slowly returned to reality.
She walked outside to get some fresh air and saw Janet, her next door neighbour, watering her plants.
"Morning Janet" she shouted.
"Oh, morning Lilly" Janet replied "are you ok? you look all flustered"
"Oh yeah, im fine thanks" Lilly said softly, stroking her hair with her hand briefly "I just had a terrible nightmare last night, it really got my heart going" Lilly looked to the floor thoughtfully.
"Oh its only a nightmare, hunny" Janet reassured her "It's not real"
Janet smiled at her warmly, tilting her head down to try and catch Lilly's attention.
Lilly gradually looked up at Janet, a slight smile forming on her face.
"Yeah..." she replied, immitating Janet's tone "just a nightmare."
She took a deep breath and returned to the house slowly, smiling at Janet as she passed.
Later that day, Lilly opened her bar as usual, and had already nearly forgotten about her nightmare, though it was still on her mind.
The customers had poured in already, including her friend Opal.
"Hey Lilly" said greeted Lilly with a warm smile "Hows things?"
"Ehhh, not bad thanks, you?" Lilly replied
"Yeah, I'm fine as anyone can be in a boring job!" Opal said in a sarcastic manner.
"Although..." Lilly carried on "I had a terrible nightmare last night"
"Oh really?" Opal enquired
"Yeah..." Lilly said "it really got my heart going"
"Oh well, it was just a nightmare" Opal reassured her, just as Janet had done.
"Yeah, im fine now any-" Lilly stopped speaking suddenly, noticing a woman stood watching her in the window. She looked over to the woman, staring at her, expressionless.
Lilly's heart began to beat faster and faster like in her nightmare. Beads of sweat began to drip from her forehead again, the world around her seemed to speed up like her heart, everything else but the woman stood in
the window seemed blurred, now, to Lilly. Her heart, now pounding against her rib cage, beated faster and faster until suddenly Opal spoke.
"Lilly, are you ok?"
Lilly looked to Opal frantically, sweat dripping down her face. She looked back to the window - the woman had vanished.
"Lilly?" Opal asked "Lilly?!"
She looked back to Opal, her heart began to slow down and return back to normal, the sweat from her forehead and face - gone.
"Sorry, I thought I saw a strange woman at the window staring at me" stated Lilly.
"Oh, well theres loads of people in Pleasantview, was probably just a customer, Lilly" Opal said calmly.
"Yeah, just a customer" Lilly repeated Opal's words "Just a customer"
Later that night Lilly set off home, only for the strange figure to appear again, watching Lilly's every move, but this time... Lilly didn't see her.

"A Georgian Tale" - Chapter Two
"Lucas! Ella! Calm down please! You're going to end up breaking something!"
Sarah shouted as she watched the kids play cops and robbers in their tiny
living room. "C'mon kids, go outside yeah? I can't afford to buy a new television!"
"Alright mum!" They both shouted as they ran out the door to the front "Lucas! Lets sell lemonade! I'm good at making lemonade!" Ella shouted to Lucas
"Alright! Bring the lemons and stuff then!" replied Lucas with excitement.
As Lucas and Ella were moving outside, Lilly turned up at the door.
"Hey Lilly" Ella smiled
"Hey Ella" Lilly replied, returning the smile.
"Oh, come through Lilly" Sarah shouted back "I need someone sane to talk to"
"Im going crazy" Sarah proclaimed "It's been so hard since Freddie died"
"Yeah, I can imagine, if you ever need my help you know you can ask" Lilly said, touching Sarah on the shoulder reassuring her
"I know i've only know you a couple of months, but I like to think of you
as a friend already"
Sarah smiled broadly and sighed "Thanks Lilly"
Lilly looked over to the window and suddenly everything went dark around her. Her heart beat began to race, beating so fast she began to hyperventillate. Sweat dripping from her forehead, her nails digging into the couch as she clutched on for her dear life - she was seeing that woman again.
Her eyes widened, she wanted to scream but no sound came from her mouth. She wanted to move, but she was frozen in time - everything else around her was blurry apart from the woman standing in the window.
She began to get an extreme headache, making her squint. She could hear voices this time, chanting something.
"Lilly?" A voice shouted "Lilly? Whats wrong? Lilly?!"
Lilly shifted her gaze to her right a little and suddenly she could see Sarah
"Lilly? Whats wrong? Lilly?" Sarah kept shouting, her hand now on Lilly's
"Where are the kids?!" Lilly shouted "Where are Ella and Lucas?!"
"What? what do you mean? They're outside..." Sarah said, confused.
Lilly looked back to the window... the woman had gone.
Her heartbeat began to return to normal, sweat - disappeared, her headache had gone and the voices had stopped suddenly - yet she was still panicing.
She looked back to Sarah.
"Lilly? For gods sake are you ok?" Sarah shouted.
"Get the-" Lilly was interrupted as Ella and Lucas came running in.
"Mum, mum!" They shouted "Mum, this weiiiird woman just bought all our lemonade! She gave us a hundred simoleons for the lot!" They both danced around crazily, celebrating their profit.
"Oh wow guys" Sarah said "Well done, she must've loved your lemonade!"
"Yeaaaaaah!" Lucas shouted "It -is- the best"
"What did the woman look like?" Lilly asked frantically
"Errrrr... black hair and black clothes, bit weird haha!" replied Lucas
Lilly looked down at the floor thoughtfully
"Im gonna have to go home and have a rest" Said Lilly "I'm stressed"
"Yeah I can see that, Lilly" said Sarah with a concerned expression on her face.
Sarah walked Lilly outside as the kids began to play Cops and Robbers in the living room again.
"Go get some rest, yeah?" Sarah said to Lilly calmly
"Yeah, I think i've been working too hard" Lilly replied
Sarah smiled at Lilly sweetly and gave her a hug "See you later yeah?"
"Yeah, see ya Sarah" Lilly said with a forced smile
Lilly turned around and headed off to her house, hugging her body
with her arms, her eyes wide with thought.
Lilly thought she was going mad... that was the second time she had seen the woman but the first time that there was a possibility she were real.
Lucas and Ella had spoken to a lady that roughly fitted the woman's description... could she be real? Or is she just seeing things? And why, if she -is- real, would she be interested in Lucas and Ella?
What was so special about Lucas and Ella? ...

"A Georgian Tale" - Chapter Three
Lilly heard voices, screams, coming from ahead. She looked at her clothes frantically touching them, exmaining them - they weren't her clothes, she doesn't own a dress and why was her hair long? Her hair only reaches her shoulders, why is it, suddenly, longer?
Lilly stroked her, now long, blonde hair, looking around - she was in a forest, why was she in a forest? She doesn't live anywhere near a forest, she lives in Pleasantview.
Lilly heard the screams again, they were calling her name "LILLY!" the voices shouted "LILLY HELP US!"
Suddenly she could see the people shouting, but Lilly couldn't move.
It was her parents! She could see her parents and they were shouting her name, and that woman - that strange woman was standing between them.
Her parents were on their knees, they seemed to be pleading for help.
"Lilly!" they both shouted "Lilly help us!"
The woman in the middle just stood there with an evil expression on her face, smiling.
Lilly looked closer at the woman, she had fangs... she was a vampire! What was she going to do to her parents?
"No... no, please, not them!" Lilly shouted
Lilly kept pleading with the woman "Please no! Not them! Don't do it! Not to them!"
The woman just stood there, laughing, whilst her parents kept shouting Lilly's name.
"Lilly! Help us please!" They both repeated, again and again.
Lilly tried to move, but she couldn't. She looked down at her feet, but they just wouldn't budge. She shoved and threw her body around but she couldn't move an inch. She looked to her parents again, tears dripping from her eyes.
She was losing them. Some how the woman was hurting them so bad they were choking. They were choking and Lilly couldn't do anything about it.
Lilly cried out again "Please stop! No!"
She kept trying to move but nothing happened, she was frozen and all she could do was speak.
"No! No! Muuuuuum! Daaaaaad!" Lilly shouted again, tears flooding from her eyes down her face, her hand reached out trying to grasp something.
Lilly began to shout more and more, her hatred for the woman standing between her parents at its highest.
"Stop it!" She cried "Stop it now! Let them go!"
The woman just laughed at her, her parents choking to death at her feet.
"Just stop it! They don't deserve to die!" Lilly shouted
Suddenly everything started to turn dark and red, her parents and the woman going further into the distance, the sound of the woman's laugh fading as they got further away.
"Nooooooo!" Lilly sobbed.
"Noooooooooo! Muuuuum! Daaaaaad!" She cried, tears rushing down her red cheeks
"Please no! I love you!" She shouted, hearing the sound of the woman's laughter fade slowly.
Lilly sat up in her bed, tears streaming from her face, sweat dripping onto her pyjamas.
She looked around the room... she was in her house, in her bed, safe.
"A nightmare" She said to herself "A nightmare... again"
Suddenly, she heard a knock at the door. Lilly got up quickly and ran to the door.
She opened the door - it was Josh.
"Oh, hey Lilly" said Josh "You ok?"
"Yeah, Im fine Josh... is there something wrong?" She asked
"Oh yeah, sorry, I was just wondering if you have any tea bags?" Josh asked
"I know it sounds silly at this time of night" he said "but I'm dying for a cup of tea"
"Oh yeah, here you go" Lilly replied, handing him some tea bags
"Thanks Lilly, sorry to bother you" He said, turning to go
"Oh it's not a problem" she smiled "See you later"
Lilly waved goodbye to Josh and then heard someone screaming to the side of her.
Lilly turned around, it was Sarah
"Whats wrong?" Lilly asked curiously
"Lucas and Ella! They're... they're" Sarah said, trying to catch her breath, tears streaming from her eyes
"They're what? Sarah?" Lilly asked
"They're gone! They've disappeared! One minute they're in bed, the next they're gone!" Sarah cried
"Oh my...." Lilly looked at Sarah...
She just stared at Sarah... she didn't know what to do...
Why would Lucas and Ella disappear? And from their own home?
Lilly's heart began to race, could it be the woman?
But what would she want with Lucas and Ella?!
To be continued...

Yay! Another great update. I can't wait!
29th Dec 2006, 09:26 PM
Oh no the children! :( I hope they are safe.
30th Dec 2006, 03:43 PM
"A Georgian Tale" - Chapter Four
"Alright Mam, we'll get right on it, we'll find your kids, don't worry" The Policeman said
"Please do, hurry up, they're so young, they can't survive on their own" Sarah pleaded with the Policeman
"I'll get the missing persons unit on it immediatley, they may come round to visit the house later tonight, so try and stay up" He said "Goodbye"
"Thank you, bye Officer" Sarah said, tears dripping from her eyes
Sarah turned to face Lilly, recieving a hug from her.
"Look, Sarah, I can stay here with you if you want? To keep you company...?" Lilly said
"Oh that'd be great, Lilly, thanks" Sarah replied, wiping her eyes "I'll need all the company I can get, I'm so worried about them Lilly"
"I know, I know" Lilly said, hugging Sarah again "They'll find them"
"I hope they do, I don't know if I could go on living without them Lilly" Sarah cried "I love them both so much, I can't imagine my life without them"
Lilly held Sarah in her arms, Sarah's tears flooding onto Lilly's top.
Lilly looked to the side and saw Josh approaching.
"Hey Lilly, hey Sarah, I heard what happened..." Josh said sympathetically "If theres anything I can do? Do you want me to stay with you for a bit?"
Sarah looked at Josh "Yeah, that'd be nice" she said "Im going to have a nap so you can keep Lilly company, I guess"
Lilly looked at Josh and smiled, leading Sarah into the house
"Ok, will do" Josh said, following them into the house.
Sarah went into Lucas and Ella's room and put some pillows on the floor, lying down.
"I want to sleep in here" She said "I'll feel more comfortable here"
Sarah drifted off to sleep whilst Josh and Lilly sat down.
"Josh, I'm really worried about Lucas and Ella" Lilly said
"I know, everyone is, they'll turn up" Josh replied
"I know, but I think theres some more to it than them just disappearing" She said
"What do you mean?" He asked curiously
"Well, I had this nightmare - and a strange woman was in it and I keep seeing her around, when I'm awake. And, well... she was standing right outside that window a couple of days ago and-"
"Oh, its just a nightmare, Lilly" Josh said "You were probably just stressed"
Josh put his arm around Lilly, comforting her.
"Yeah, I guess so" Lilly replied "It's just... ugh" Lilly began to cry
"Oh, don't cry Lilly" He said
Lilly smiled and looked into Josh's eyes.
He wiped her tears gently with his hand and stared back into her eyes
There was a tense pause... they both stared at each other... he glanced at Lilly's lips, her heart began to pound, but in a good way. She got a funny feeling in her stomach as if butterflies were flying around in there.
He moved in closer... her heart pounded faster and then...
They kissed. It was amazing. Lilly hadn't kissed a guy passionatley for a long time... well, not since she moved here anyway.
The kiss sent tingles down her body, his hands supported her face,
his fingers stroking her soft skin.
They pulled away, both of them smiling and then Lilly looked to the window.
Her eyes began to fill up again, tears started to fall from her eyes, her heart began to pound fast again, but this time it was bad.
Vibrations flowing down her body from her heart, sweat dripping from her forehead. It was Lucas and Ella!
But wait, they were floating. If they were standing on the gound
she would only just see their heads... but you could see their whole bodies!
And they were glowing red and blue... they were expressionless too...
Her heart began pounding faster, she gripped the couch with her hands, her nails digging into the couch. It was like her experiences seeing the woman
but she was seeing Lucas and Ella! It was Lucas and Ella!
She whispered their names repeatedly "Lucas and Ella"
"Lucas and Ella!" she said
"What?" Josh asked curiously
"Lucas and Ella!" she shouted
Lilly got up from the couch and ran to the door
"It's Lucas and Ella!" She shouted again
Lilly opened the door and some people were standing there in FBI uniforms...
It was her Mum and Dad!
"M-mum?... D-dad?" she said, stunned.
"Honey..." Her mum, Frances, said "... I know we're supposed to be dead"
"And it's a long story" Jonathan, her Dad, said
"But we'll tell you later, you must come with us" Frances said "You, Sarah, and Josh"
"It's about Lucas and Ella" Jonathan said
Lilly looked around, to see if she could see Lucas and Ella. They were gone.
She returned her gaze to her Mum and Dad.
"B-but you died a year ago...?" She said
"I know, I know, and we'll explain it later, but you must come with us now!" Frances said, trying to persuade Lilly.
"B-but, you died..." Lilly said softly "You died..."

"A Georgian Tale" - Chapter Five
"They're with us" Said Frances as she approached the receptionist
The receptionist looked up at Frances and Jonathan and nodded
"Sir, Ma'am" She said "Their room is prepared" the receptionist smiled to them both.
"Thank you, we'll take them up now" replied Jonathan
"Oh, Ma'am" said the Receptionist "You have a message from a woman"
"Ok, patch it through to our office computer" Frances replied
"Mum, Dad, will you just-" Lilly was interrupted
"Lilly we will explain soon, now follow us" said Frances
Frances and Jonathan, Lilly's parents, lead Josh, Lilly, and Sarah through Pleasantview's FBI Headquarters and up to a room.
"You'll be safe here" Frances said "You can all sleep in here for now, it's not great but it's comfortable"
"Yes, you should all get some sleep" Jonathan said
"Mum, Dad, I've had enough!" Lilly shouted "Now you'll either explain whats happening or we're going!"
"Ok, ok" Frances reasoned "We'll explain now"
"Yes, please do, and don't leave anything out" Lilly ordered.
"Right, well, we'll start from our death then" Frances said
"Obviously" Jonathan said "We didn't die in a plane crash, and we're didn't own our own restaurant - that was just a cover"
"Yes" Frances interrupted "A cover for our FBI jobs. We've been in the FBI since before you were born - you've got to understand though, Lilly, we couldn't tell you because that would mean you would be in danger"
"We work for a special division of the FBI" Jonathan explained "The Special Research Division, we handle supernatural cases"
"What? Like UFOs?" Josh asked
"Yes, that kind of stuff" Frances replied
"We were in on a big case, a case involving the supernatural being - the Vampire" Frances explained "Everyone thinks they don't exist, but very much do, and they're dangerous"
"So why fake your own death?" Lilly asked
"We got too deep into the case, and it meant that we were endangering you" Jonathan explained "So... we faked our own death to protect you"
"You faked your own death to protect me?" Lilly said, her eyes filling up
"Yes, we didn't want you harmed" Frances replied
"B-but why did you bring us all here? Where are Lucas and Ella?" Lilly asked
"We don't know, but if they're in danger, you all are too" Jonathan said
Lilly burst out crying, and ran towards her Mum, hugging her.
"I'm so sorry, hunny" Frances said
"It's alright mum" Lilly cried "You're alive and thats all that matters"
"Anyway, you get some sleep" Frances said "Me and your Dad will be down the hall in our office"
"Ok, see you later" Lilly said.
They all watched Frances and Jonathan walk towards their office
"Hmm, theres only two beds" Josh said
"You can sleep with me, Josh" Lilly said, smiling at Josh
"Im gonna sit here for a bit, maybe have a walk around, clear my head" Sarah said
"Alright then" Lilly replied, hugging Sarah "Get some sleep though, yeah?"
"Yeah" Sarah said, forcing a smile "Will do"
Lilly and Josh got into bed and immediatley fell asleep.
Sarah walked over to one of the chairs and sat down... watching them sleep, thinking about Lucas and Ella... and Freddie.
She missed Freddie so much... a tear began to fall from her eye...
She missed having someone to protect her...
And now Lucas and Ella are missing... she can't even protect them, she thought.
Sarah stared at Lilly and Josh sleeping and sighed, getting up and walking out the door.
Sarah drifted down the corridor, trying to clear her head, but constantly thinking about Lucas and Ella.
As she got further down the corridor she heard voices - shouting - coming from a room at the end of the corridor.
Sarah approached the door slowly and peered through the glass.
It was Frances and Jonathan - they were arguing.
"We must do it now!" Frances shouted "We can't afford to wait!"
"We have to wait!" Jonathan shouted back "We need to find the other!"
"I thought that was Sarah?" Frances asked "I mean, Lucas and Ella are her kids"
"Yes, but we don't know which one gave them the gene" Jonathan explained
"Well it's obviously Sarah, otherwise the kids wouldn't have been taken!" Frances yelled
"You'd think so, but we can't know for definate..." Jonathan said calmly "We'll do some tests"
Sarah was shocked... what was this gene they were talking about?
And what tests were they going to run?
Sarah began to panic, backing away from the door when suddenly she stepped back, knocking into the window making a large rattling sound.
Sarah froze... hoping they didn't hear her.
"What was that?" Frances asked angrily
"I don't know..." Jonathan replied
Sarah's eyes widened as she began to back away slowly.
She moved back, further down the corridor. She ran, she ran back towards the room quickly, panic stricken.
Frances approached the door, opening it and stepping into the corridor.
Frances glared down the corridor suspiciously...

"A Georgian Tale" - Chapter Six
Lilly was in the forest again - this time she knew it was a nightmare, but wait - she had the same hair as her mother, and was wearing the same dress as her mother was wearing in her previous nightmare.
She looked around, she was stood on a stone floor in the middle of the forest and she was stood between Lucas and Ella! But they were crying?
Lucas and Ella were panicing, crying, screaming for help. Lilly started to cry, she hated seeing them like this. She tried to touch them but she couldn't, she just couldn't - her hand wouldn't reach them even thought she was so close.
Lilly heard a voice screaming from ahead. It was a man's voice...
she looked in front of her - the trees now parting and revealing a tall blonde man, screaming Lucas and Ella's name.
"Lucas!" he shouted "Ella! Noooo!"
Wait, she recognised that man... but where? where did she know him from?
Lilly tried to think, cries for help coming from either side of her, and this angry man yelling Luca's and Ella's name.
"Let them go!" he cried "Let. Them. Go!"
Of course! It was Freddie Jackson! Sarah's husband. She'd seen pictures of him around Sarah's house. What was he doing in her nightmare?
Lilly tried to move - she could! She couldn't get near Lucas and Ella but she could walk forward. She stepped forward and turned around to see her mother standing where she once stood.
Her mother was just standing there... a content expression on her face, ignoring the screams of the children and Freddie.
"Mum?" Lilly asked "Mum?"
There was no response... but suddenly everything started getting brighter and Lilly was shoved backwards onto the ground. She brushed her clothes and stood up, but wait - she was in different clothes now?! Lilly was in the same outfit as she was in the last Nightmare, with long hair again! And she was stood next to Freddie.
Freddie continued to shout Lucas and Ella's name, and Lilly joined in, begging for their life. She knew it was just a nightmare but she felt she had to try and do something.
"Lucas! Ella!" they both shouted "Please, don't hurt them!"
Lilly continued to glare at her mum, who was still stood there motionless.
She didn't know why her mum wouldn't help Lucas and Ella, but there had to be a good reason!
She glared at her mum, trying to gain a reaction - shouting at her. Then, Frances, her mum, began to fade... she just faded out of sight and the other woman replaced her. Her mum and faded and revealed that vampire woman, and the woman just stood there with a smirk on her face.
Why did that happen? Why did her mum fade into the vampire woman?
Lilly was confused, but continued to shout for help.
"Help, please! Someone save them" she shouted
"Don't hurt them! Not them!" Freddie cried
"They don't deserve it Elgora!" Freddie yelled "They don't deserve that life!"
Lilly looked to Freddie swiftly... "Elgora?" She asked him. Freddie didn't reply, and just continued to shout. The woman was called Elgora? She hadn't ever heard a name like that before.
Lilly glanced back to Lucas and Ella. They were getting weaker, their crys fading, you could see they were getting lifeless, somehow the woman was draining their energy.
Lilly and Freddie got down on their knees, tears streaming from their eyes, begging the woman - Elgora - to let them go.
"Please no!" Freddie shouted "They don't deserve it!"
"Let them go!" Lilly cried "Let them go! LET THEM GO!"
Lilly sat up quickly in the bed. Sweat dripping from her forehead, her heart racing. She knew she'd just had a nightmare, but she didn't understand it?
She took a minute to settle, sitting on the bed deep in thought. What did Freddie Jackson have to do with her? He was dead...
She looked at Josh, who was fast asleep still - she mustn't move around much during her nightmares if Josh was still asleep, because she was sure that if she did she would've nudged him bad enough to wake him.
She took a deep breath and looked to the door. Sarah came running in with a worried expression on her face.
"Lilly! Thank god you're awake" She said
"Whats wrong, Sarah?" Lilly asked curiously
"Theres something going on and I don't like it. I overheard your parents talking about Lucas and Ella, and something about a gene and that they're going to have to do tests on me or something?" Sarah explained
Lilly stood up and approached Sarah calmly.
"I'm sure theres a reasonable explaination for everything Sarah" Lilly said "I'll get dressed and we'll go and see them together ok?"
"Ok" Sarah said softly "Thanks Lilly"
Meanwhile, downstairs in reception...
"I'm here to see Agents Frances and Jonathan George" The woman said to the Receptionist.
"Name please?" The Receptionist asked
"Elgora Di'rondula" She replied

"A Georgian Tale" - Chapter Seven
"Mum" Lilly said, leading Sarah into the office calmly "Whats this about a gene and running tests on Sarah?"
Frances glanced to Jonathan before answering slowly "Well, we er..." Frances paused, scratching her neck, "We need to run some tests on..."
"Yeah... go on?" Lilly said urgently "Spit it out..."
"Lilly, it's not what it sounds like" Jonathan said, standing up "It's just that..." Suddenly, Elgora came bursting into the room.
"Hello Frances, Hello Jonathan" Elgora said, looking to them both
"Elgora... Hi" Frances said, smiling nervously "We weren't expecting you so soon?"
Lilly turned around and saw that woman, who has been haunting her for weeks, standing behind her, speaking to her mother like a friend.
"M-mum? You know this woman?" Lilly asked, frowning slightly.
Sarah looked between Frances, Lilly, and Elgora slowly, curious to know exactly what was going on.
"I'll take it from here, Frances" Elgora ordered
Frances paused, contemplating explaining the situation to Lilly or responding to Elgora "But we don't have everything, Elgora?" Frances said
"I found him already" Elgora said "Since you take too long to do anything. However we still need to get hold of him somehow"
Frances laughed nervously, responding to Elgora "Oh, ok... so what do you want us to do now?
Lilly's heart began to race. She looked to Sarah, who was totally clueless about the whole situation.
"Well, we have the main person, thanks to you, at least you can do something right" Elgora said, smirking. Frances looked to Lilly, who was now looking extremely worried.
"Main person?" Lilly asked nervously
"Yes" Elgora said calmly, smirking "You"
Lilly looked to Sarah, who was now looking extremely worried.
"We have the little ones, we have the main person, we just need to grab the other and we're all set" Elgora proclaimed, talking to the whole room.
"You have Lucas and Ella?!" Sarah asked, tears slowly dripping from her eyes
"Well, of course" Elgora said, smiling in a patronising manner
Sarah burst into hysterics "Give them back!" She shouted
"Oh shut up" Elgora said harshly "Lets go"
Suddenly four vampires appearing, scattered around the room.
"Take Frances first" Elgora said to one of the female vampires. Frances looked behind her as one approached her, placing her hands on France's shoulders. Frances suddenly began to feel weak, her vision began to turn blurry, and voices around her began to muffle.
Elgora stood, watching them disappearing slowly. Lilly just stood there, gawping. She couldn't move, her mother had just disappeared... just like that. Sarah had gone quiet, stunned like Lilly, and was just standing there in total disbelief.
"Take Jonathan now" Elgora ordered the other female vampire.
The other vampire approached Jonathan from behind, and like the previous one, placed her hands on his shoulders and he began to weaken and disappear slowly.
Lilly watched as the vampires took her parents away. She didn't know what to do, but what could she do? They were way more powerful than she was.
"W-whats going on?" Lilly said softly. Sarah was still standing there silently, petrified and frozen - she was so scared so couldn't move.
"Now Lilly" Elgora ordered one of the male vampires.
Lilly stiffened up, backing towards the door. "What do you want with me?" She asked. Elgora just looked at Lilly and smirked. "Tell me!" Lilly shouted.
Sarah looked to Lilly, tears flooding from her eyes "Leave her alone!" Sarah shouted
Suddenly the male vampire pounced on Lilly, placing his hands on her shoulders and making her go weak. Lilly's eyes closed, the energy draining from her body, slowly disappearing from the room.
Elgora watched as Lilly slowly disappeared. Sarah tried to grab her, but her hand just went right through them - they had gone.
Elgora turned to face Sarah and smirked, looking to the last remaining vampire "Right, we're done here... lets go" she said.
Sarah just stood there, glaring at Elgora.
"What've you done with them?!" Sarah shouted "Tell me now!"
Elgora glanced to Sarah laughing "Goodbye Sarah Jackson" Elgora said
"What? How do you know my name? Where's Lilly?!" Sarah screamed
Elgora just laughed again and disappeared, just like everyone else had.
Sarah took a deep breath and shot out the door down the corridoor back to the room.
She ran, she ran as fast as she could, she had to help Lilly and she had to get her children back!
Sarah burst into the room and woke Josh up in the process.
"Whats wrong, Sarah?" Josh asked "Wheres Lilly?"
"Shes gone!" Sarah cried "They took her! The vampires took her!"

"A Georgian Tale" - Chapter Eight
Lilly woke up... she wasn't in her bedroom, and she definatley wasn't in Pleasantview's FBI Headquarters. She sat up slowly in the bed and looked around the room. The walls were made of stone and the room was circular... it was like she was in a tower or something, everything was relatively 'medieval'. She swung her legs over the side of the bed and perched on the edge.
Lilly was wearing the same clothes, and had the same hair, as she did in her nightmares. Maybe her nightmares weren't nightmares as such, maybe they were images of the future?
Lilly rubbed her head, which was hurting for some reason, and walked towards the door. It was locked...
Lilly was about to turn away when she heard voices on the other side of the door. She put her ear to the door and tried to listen. The voices weren't right behind the door but they were close, the walls - and doors - must be very thin.
"Mistress Elgora" a voice said
"Yes, Evá?" Elgora replied
"Everything is ready, Mistress" the voice said
Lilly looked puzzled... what was ready? She carried on listening.
"What about the Empress?" Elgora asked
"Shes still hibernating, Mistress" Evá replied
"Good, we can use the little ones to wake her and then the girl can be sacrificed, but not now - we have to find the other" Elgora explained
Lilly pulled away from the door. How would they use Lucas and Ella to wake this Empress? And was Lilly the 'girl' they spoke of? And who was 'the other'? She had so many questions, but she didn't want to stay around to ask them, or find out - so she began to test the strength of the door.
The punched and kicked it, she thrust her body into it trying to knock it down or open it or something, she just wanted to get out of this stupid place.
"Open up for gods sake!" she yelled "Opennnnn!" Lilly cried as she used all her remaining energy to break the door down.
Elgora overheard the banging and smirked at Evá. "Shes trying her best to break out of there isn't she?" she said, laughing "Lets let her out"
Elgora clicked her fingers and suddenly the door opened for Lilly.
Lilly froze... she didn't do that? She walked out of the door anyway, and walked across to the other room.
She walked outside first, and looked around. She was no where near Pleasantview now, she couldn't see any houses or anything for miles, just trees, trees, and more trees! She continued across to the other part of, what looked like a castle, and opened the door, walking in.
Elgora was stood there with another Vampire. Elgora turned around as, soon as Lilly walked in, and smiled. "Ahhh, Lilly" she said "Did you sleep well?
"Er.. my head hurts... but, what am I doing here? What do you want with me?" Lilly asked, confused.
"Oh, you'll find out, but for now - you need to get some rest, you need all that energy of yours" Elgora said nicely.
"Wh-what?" Lilly asked "No, tell me now please! I deserve to know! And where are Lucas and Ella?!"
Elgora just laughed, the vampire behind her laughing too. "Lilly, Lilly, Lilly..." Elgora said softly "You have no idea whats going on do you? Do you even know who you are?"
"Y-yes, I'm Lilly George" Lilly replied nervously "I'm Lilly George!"
"Yes, thats your name, but you have no idea just who you are, and just how important you are" Elgora said
"W-what? I don't understand" Lilly said, now extremely confused.
"Well, you'll find out eventually, but for now you have to go back to sleep" Elgora said, smiling
"I don't want to go back to sleep" Lilly said
"Well you have no choice" Elgora replied. And at that moment Elgora began to smile and Lilly began to feel all weak and... tired!
"I-I... d-dont want......to.... sleep" Lilly said, her energy being slowly drained from her body "S-stop.... it"
"Sleep well" Elgora said "Sleep very, very well"
Lilly slowly fell to the floor, her eyes getting heavy, her limbs turning limp, her head feeling as though it were emptying - she felt entirely relaxed.
Lilly drifted off to sleep on the floor, her body entirely relaxed.
"Perfect" Elgora said "Leave her there for now, we'll take her down later when we have the other"
"Yes mistress" Evá said "Is there anything you wish for me to do?"
"You shall go and prepare the chamber room for the ritual, we need it perfect for the Empress, she cannot dislike anything." Elgora instructed
Evá was just about to leave when another vampire came running up the stairs towards Elgora.
"Mistress Elgora!" he shouted "Mistress Elgora!"
"Yes, Jal'lac?" Elgora replied
"We've pretty much got him" He said "He's back at the FBI base"
"Good, move in and grab him now" Elgora ordered "Be careful, he's not stupid"
To be continued...

"A Georgian Tale" - Chapter Nine
"What?!" Josh said "Lilly's gone?!"
"Yes, shes gone! The vampires took her, they just... disappeared right before my eyes!" Sarah cried "I couldn't do anything, they just took her and Frances and Jonathan!"
"Do you know where?" Josh asked
"No! But we need to find them, Josh!" Sarah shouted "We need to find them!"
"Oh god... I dunno where to start" Josh said, distraught.
"Well we-" Sarah paused "Theres someone coming, quick, hide"
They both hid out of sight of the glass door and waited to see who it was.
The door opened and a blonde man walked in.
Josh and Sarah just stood still, trying not to move, waiting for the right moment. Then suddenly they both jumped out at the man!
"Stop where you-" Sarah shouted ".... Freddie?"
Josh looked to Sarah, confused, was she talking about her dead husband?
Sarah just stood there, staring at the man... it was definatley Freddie!
"Freddie... ?" She said "Freddie is that you?"
Freddie paused and faced Sarah, looking at her lovingly.
"Yes, Sarah, it's me" he said softly "It's me!"
"B-but, I thought you were dead?" Sarah said as tears began to fall from her eyes "Does this have anything to do with Frances and Jonathan?"
Freddie approached her slowly with a smile on his face. "Yes, you see" he began to explain "Frances and Jonathan are Vampire hunters, and so am I. It's a genetic thing, being a vampire hunter gives you special... powers... against vampires"
"You never told me this?" Sarah cried
"I couldn't, because it would've endangered you and the kids, just like it would've endangered Lilly if Frances and Jonathan had told her" Freddie explained "But, something happened - y'see, Frances and Jonathan got turned - they were 'persuaded' by the vampires and now they work for them!"
Sarah's eyes widened... she had trusted them, they were FBI after all. And Lilly! Lilly's parents were betraying her!
"Why did you have to fake your death then?!" Sarah asked
"I didn't, Frances and Jonathan did" He said "They kidnapped me, thinking they could use me, but they needed more than me for that"
"And thats why they have Lilly, Lucas, and Ella?" Sarah said
"Yes, and the only other they need now... is me" Freddie explained
Sarah burst into tears and ran towards Freddie. "Oh Freddie, I've missed you so much!" She cried
They kissed, the first kiss in 6 months - it was amazing. Sarah felt like a missing piece of her heart had just been returned.
"So, are you going to help us save Lilly, Lucas, and Ella?" Josh asked
Freddie smiled at Sarah and then looked to Josh "Yes, of course, but first you two must change your clothes" Freddie said
"Why?" Sarah asked
"Because it will put the vampires off, they know your smell so if you leave your clothes here they will come here first before following the new trail" Freddie explained carefully.
Freddie lead them both down to the Agent locker rooms to see if they could find any alternative clothes.
"Right, have a rummage" Freddie said "Find something comfortable"
Sarah and Josh forced open the lockers, rummaging through the clothes to see what would fit them and what they were comfortable in.
"Ohh, this'll do" Sarah said, pulling some clothes out of a locker "Don't look whilst I get changed" she said to Josh
"Haha, don't worry, I won't" Josh replied, laughing "I've found some too, so you better not look either!"
Josh and Sarah both got changed and put their old clothes in the locker they had opened. "Right, i'll just put my hair in a bun and we can go" Sarah said.
"What d'ya think?" Sarah said, posing
"Beautiful as usual" Freddie said, flirtatiously "Right, i'll just see if I can get us some transportation" He said, moving towards the phone.
"I hope we get to them soon" Josh said "I really like Lilly"
"I know, I saw you both got on well" Sarah said
"And of course, vampires aren't great with kids either" Josh said
"Mmmm, Lucas and Ella will be fine, I know it" Sarah said almost confidently "And so will Lilly.
Freddie picked up the phone... there was no tone or anything. "The lines dead" he said "That means we have company, c'mon we gotta get out of here!"
Freddie put the phone down and grabbed Sarah's hand, indicating to Josh to follow them. "C'mon, lets move" Freddie said
Freddie lead them both down the corridoor, towards the main reception.
They ran through the door, only to find some vampires standing there.
"Hello Freddie" One of them said
Freddie let go of Sarah's hand "Sarah, get the female one, i'll handle him" Freddie instructed "Bring it on." Freddie began to attack the male vampire, kicking and punching him, using impressive moves to defeat him.
"Take that!" He shouted "Sarah, hit them in the chest as hard as you can, it's where their heart is - it'll hurt them there the most!"
Sarah hurled herself at the female vampire. "AHHHHHH!" she yelled "You took my kids!" Sarah swung at the female vampire, hitting her hard in the face. The female vampire retalliated, kicking Sarah in the chest, pushing her back. Sarah gathered herself and punched the female vampire in the face and then kicked her in the chest, weakening her.
Sarah forced the female vampire onto the floor. "How'd you like that? Eh?" she yelled.
"C'mon Sarah, we gotta go!" Freddie shouted "C'mon!"
Freddie, Sarah, and Josh ran out the door and down towards the road. Josh ran ahead "C'mon, we haven't got much time!" he yelled, going round the corner.
"Josh, don't go out of sight!" Freddie yelled
"Josh!" Sarah shouted "Wait!"
Josh ran right around the corner and stopped, catching his breath. "C'mon, hurry up!" he shouted. Suddenly he felt some hands grasp his shoulders and he felt all weak, like the energy was being drained from his body. The world around him slowly disappeared, as he did - into thin air.
"Josh?!" Sarah yelled, looking around. There was no sight of Josh. "Josh?!"

"A Georgian Tale" - Chapter Ten
Lilly woke up, she was strapped to a chair in a room, similar to one she was in previously, but it had a red fountain in the middle of it... the water looked like blood. She could hear moaning to the side of her, it was Josh! What was he doing here?! Last time she saw him he was asleep at the FBI HQ in Plesantview. She examined him, he was just waking up and was also strapped to the chair.
"Josh?" Lilly said softly "Josh? You ok?" Lilly looked at Josh and a tear began to fall from her eye, she really liked him - she hadn't liked anyone this much for a long time.
Josh slowly lifted his head up and looked at Lilly, forcing a smile "Hey Lilly..." he said "Where am I? Are we safe?" Lilly looked at Josh and sighed "No, Josh, we're not safe" she said "We're far from safe"
Josh sighed and tried to budge his chair closer to Lilly's. "Lilly, if anything happens, I just want you to know that I really like you, I reaaaaaally like you, and - if we ever get out of here - I hope we can take things a little further" Josh said
"Oh... Josh" Lilly said "I really like you too"
They both shoved their chairs closer to each other and kissed.
Meanwhile, down in the dungeons of the castle...
Lucas began to wake up, picking his body up off the floor. He looked at Ella, whom was still out cold. "Ella?" He said "Ella wake up" - He nudged Ella, who began to open her eyes slowly and get up "Ugh, are we still here?" she said
"Yeah, but mum will save us soon, I know she will" Lucas said, helping Ella up from the floor. "These clothes suck big time" said Lucas "They're so uncomfortable"
Ella stood up and began to cry.
"Oh Lucas" Ella cried "I'm so scared"
Lucas hugged Ella again, comforting her gently "I know, me too, but we'll be fine, mum won't let us down" he replied
"I hope so, because I don't know what they're going to do to us" Ella said
"I know..." Lucas said "I know"
Suddenly a door opened down the other end of the room and a male vampire stepped in, shutting the door behind him.
Lucas and Ella stepped back slowly, and began to shout.
"Go away!" they both shouted "Leave us alone!"
The male vampire just laughed and began to approach them both.
"Stop it! Leave us alone!" They cried
The male vampire put his hands on their shoulders and they began to feel weak once again, their existence in the dungeons fading.
Back up in the tower...
"What do you want with us?!" Lilly cried as a similar vampire appeared in the tower "Why are you keeping us prisoner?!" She budged and shoved her body around in the chair, trying to break free from it.
The vampire approached her, putting his hands on her shoulders making her feel weak and helpless.
"Leave her alone" Josh cried "LEAVE HER ALONE!"
Josh watched as Lilly disappeared from the room along with the vampire, the rope, which were once keeping Lilly tied to the chair, now loose, restricting nothing.
Josh's eyes began to fill up, a look of hatred formed on his face. He was helpless - but the man is supposed to protect the woman - he felt worthless.
Lilly appeared in an underground dungeon and was thrown to the floor, her vision blurred, her energy drained, and her hearing distorted.
"Leave her...th- ..-or now" a voice said, she couldn't quite hear exactly what they had said, she was so weak, everything was blurry and distorted.
"-e -'ll begin soon" the voice said
Lilly tried to grab something, she looked up... she couldn't quite make out what was infront of her but she could see fire burning either side of her, and the surface felt like stone.
She looked up...
Everything was a blur still... Lilly tried to reach infront of her but she felt the life drain from her body. She fainted.

"A Georgian Tale" - Chapter Eleven
"Ahhhh, Lilly, I see you've woken up already" Elgora said "Welcome to the Royal Chamber"
Lilly was stood in the middle of some sort of chamber, with no windows yet no roof. It was night time, however, so nothing would effect the vampires. It was lit earily, with two fountains either side of her and three coffins situated in front of her, the middle one lit in a bright red light.
"You know..." Lilly said, scowling at Elgora "I could just run out the door now, my parents aren't going to hold me back"
Elgora just laughed. "Try and move... go on" Elgora said. Lilly tried to move her feet, but they wouldn't budge!
"You've put a spell on me!" Lilly shouted
"Yes, it's so you don't run away before the ritual" Elgora explained "We have the children, and your friend - Sarah - and her dead husband should be walking through that door anytime!"
"Freddie's alive?!" Lilly said, shocked "You vile little... THING! I'll kill you if you hurt my friends or family!"
"Lilly, don't try to argue with her" Frances said "It's too late now"
"Yeah!" Lilly shouted "No thanks to you.... MUM! I can't believe you betrayed me! You're not my mother, and he's not my father!"
Meanwhile, outside the chamber...
"Ok, Sarah, we have to be careful now" Freddie said "Just follow my lead ok?"
"Ok" Sarah nodded "I hope Lucas and Ella are safe"
"They're fine for now, but the sooner we get in there, the sooner they're safe" Freddie said "We have to take them by surprise"
Freddie just stared at Sarah and smiled... "I love you" He said. Sarah smiled back and kissed him passionatley on the lips. "I love you too" she said.
The both took a moment to hug and kiss and prepare to attack when Sarah heard some rustling in the bushes to the side of her. "What was that?" she asked. "What was what?" Freddie replied.
She looked to the side and saw a dark man standing watching them. "They know were here!" She cried
They were about to run when they both suddenly fell to the ground, both of them feeling as though the energy was being drained from their bodies. Their vision went blurred...
Sarah looked up at the man from the floor as she fell to ground. "No..." she said softly before passing out.
They both woke up and found themselves in the same room Lilly was in.
They picked themselves up off the ground and looked to Elgora.
"YOU WITCH!" Freddie shouted "YOU-"
"Oh shut up, Freddie" Elgora snapped "If you hadn't had been so careless, none of this would've happened"
"Don't you DARE blame this on me, Elgora!" Freddie shouted "I would've killed you if these two idiots hadn't have turned!" he said, gesturing to Frances and Jonathan.
Elgora just laughed. "I think it's time to begin"
Elgora began to chant something in a strange language, something Lilly had never heard before. As Elgora chanted, the fire on two of the front coffins began to light up even more, massive flames flying up into the air then suddenly, two of the coffins opened.
Elgora smirked at Lilly as two fair-haired vampires sat up in their coffins and got out, standing - looking at Elgora.
"Guardians, it is time" Elgora said, ordering the two fair-haired vampires to stand beside her. Elgora and the 'guardians' turned to face the red coffin, getting down on their knees and chanting again, this time the chanting was louder. The flames either side of the red coffin suddenly grew, shooting up into the air.
The fires blazed, making a horrible booming sound as they blew in the wind. Suddenly, a loud screeching sound came from the coffin and it shot open, smoke drifting out of it and up sat a beautiful vampire with long white hair.
The vampire sat up and slowly got out of its coffin. It stepped down and glared around the room, hissing.
"Marchioness Lysistra" Elgora said triumphantly "Welcome back"

11th Jan 2007, 06:27 AM
Interesting....interesting....can't wait to find out what's gonna happen now....is lily, lucas and ella gonna be sacrafice???
8th Apr 2007, 10:44 PM
Hey guys, sorry about the HUMONGOUS delay on the final chapter - I went travelling for a couple of months! But anyway, here is the final chapter of "A Georgian Tale"
"A Georgian Tale" - Final Chapter
A bolt of lighting jolted out of Lysistra's fingers, enlighting the whole room, almost deafening everybody. The lightening stormed towards Lilly's parents, electricuting them - killing them.
"We won't be needing them anymore..." Lysistra laughed, morbidly
Lucas and Ella screamed as the lightening hit Lilly's parents. Lilly turned around quickly, screaming too as she saw her parents die before her eyes.
She felt dejected, but because her parents had betrayed her, she couldn't help but feel thats what they deserved.
All the vampires in the room laughed uncontrollably as they watched Lilly's parents literally light up like a lightbulb and slowly slump to the ground.
Lilly turned back to look at Lysistra, with a scornful look on her face.
"I know they betrayed me, but believe me... you will pay for that" Lilly said, gritting her teeth.
"Oh do shut up" Lysistra snapped "They'll have company soon..."
Lilly's face dropped... was Lysistra hinting at her death? Was Lysistra going to kill Lilly?
"You're going to kill me? ..." Lilly said softly, glaring at Lysistra
"Who said i'd be killing you?" Lysistra said, smirking
Lilly looked at Lucas and Ella, and then back to Lysistra
"You're going to kill them?" She asked, her piercing eyes glaring into Lysistra's
"Kind of... lets just say they'll be a casualty of circumstance" Lysistra stated.
Lilly's face moulded into an expression of disgust as she spoke on... "Who are you anyway?"
"I am Marchioness Lysistra... Queen of the Vampires. My loyal servant, Elgora, has brought me back to life, well... vampiric life anyway, so that I can breed and infest this god forsaken planet" Lysistra said, smiling in a patronising manner
"What do you need US for?" Lilly shouted
"Well... your body is full of Vampire hunter blood... the bain of my race, and with that blood I can make sure my children are immune to hunter powers" Lysistra explained
Lilly bowed her head as a tear began to fall from her eye. She was going to be sacrificed, along with Lucas and Ella, so that some crazy vampire could take over the 'world' - or so she said.
"Anyway... shall we begin?" Lysistra said, her hands stretching out towards Lilly... a strange purple energy coming from her fingers, drawing Lilly, Lucas and Ella towards her "Elgora, its time"
Elgora chanted something, which made Lucas and Ella unable to move.
"Mum! Dad!" They both yelled "Help us!"
Lilly walked, dazingly, towards Lysistra - helpless until suddenly Lysistra grabbed her and bit her neck!
"ARGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGH" Lysistra moaned as she sucked the blood from Lilly's body. Lilly just slumped in Lysistra's arms helplessly letting her drink her blood. Lucas and Ella screamed at the top of their voices as they watched in horror.
Lysistra pulled away, letting Lilly drop to the floor. She wiped her mouth and watched Lilly slowly fly up into the air and hover.
"Muahahahaha!" Lysistra chuckled "And so the transformation begins!"
Lilly hovered in the air, a purple mist surrounding her. She was turning into a vampire!
Lilly hovered in the air, the purple mist getting stronger. Light shon from her eyes as her eyes turned blood red. Her hair slowly turning white as the vampire virus infested her body.
"AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH" Lilly screamed, the pain of the tranformation too much for her fragile body to handle.
Suddenly there was a yell from behind Lysistra as a foot came flying towards her head.
"Oh no you don't... LADY" Sarah yelled as she kicked Lysistra in the head.
Lysistra screamed "NOOOOOOOOOOOO" as she fell back
"NOOOOOOOOOO" Lysistra screamed, falling to the ground.
"Thats it Sarah! In the head!" Freddie shouted "It'll stop the process, and kill her for good!"
Sarah kicked Lysistra in the head again, this time it was fatal. Lysistra dropped the ground with a dead look in her eyes.
The roof opened up and daylight flooded into the room.
All the vampires in the room began to burn under the light. Lilly's body had fell to the ground whilst Lucas and Ella ran towards their mother.
"NOOOOOOOOOOOOO" Elgora screamed "I worked so hard! And now I've failed!"
"So long... elgora" Freddie said with disgust.
The vampires, including Elgora and Lysistra, melted into nothingness, leaving no trail of the existance behind. Everyone else just stood and watched in glee.
Sarah ran up to Lilly, who was back to normal again but with one significant difference.
"Oh Lilly" Sarah said "Thank god you're ok"
"Thank you so much, Sarah" Lilly said, hugging her "You saved my life"
"Anything for a friend" Sarah replied, smiling, embracing Lilly.
"Lilly... your hair... it's white.." Sarah said, curiously
Lilly felt her hair and looked confused
"She got far enough through the transformation..." Freddie explained "...so that her hair would stay permenantly white, but nothing else should have changed"
Lilly grinned "As long as its just my hair thats changed" she said "I quite like it actually"
Josh came running up to Lilly, arms wide open. He embraced her lovingly.
"Lilly!" Josh shouted "I'm so glad your ok!"
Josh pulled Lilly to him and they kissed. Lilly felt a strange feeling in her stomach... could this be love?
