Shana laughed, throwing back her head and opening her mouth wide. She had a laugh like no other, an uproarious, full-throated, loud laugh. At parties, people always looked behind them to see who had interrupted their shallow conversation so rudely, but then they saw Shana. After they watched her laugh, they couldn’t stay irritated.
“Are you, like, coming onto me?” Shana’s eyes were bright with mirth, her laughter having just subsided. She stared at the weedy, scrawny, pimpled freshman standing in front of her. He was resolutely holding up a bottle, ready to refill Shana’s shot-glass. It had taken mounds of courage for him to come up to her and ask, with what he thought was a sly, alluring smile, if she wanted a refill, babe.
“Well?” Shana’s eyes were already wandering, looking for someone else, someone cool and trendy and beautiful to talk to. There was quite a pick of young men – lots were in togas, this being their yearly let’s-crash-the-sorority-girls’-party-without-underpants-on event. Pimply freshman forgotten, she wandered over to where some tasty looking guys were gathered.
“Yo, hey, can you fine fellows pour a girl a drink or what?” She smiled coquettishly, her naturally blond hair flipping over one shoulder in an expert move to show off her bare shoulders. A black haired, toga-clad frat-boy turned to look at her. Shana’s smile disappeared. Her face fell, mouth hanging open stupidly, a look of shock stamped into her usually lovely features. The frat-boy looked her up and down, deliberately slowly, and grinned, revealing very pointed canines. When he spoke, Shana could feel the shiver creeping up her back like a line of ants.
“Hello, my heart. I told you we’d see each other again.”

Crack me up. Love this line! LOL
Great ending, too! Suuuurprrriiiissse! (I suddenly had an imagine of Spike from Buffy. LOL)
Ooooh, spot on.
I KNEW IT!
Okay, I’m curious. Is he her stalker?
PS Spike? * Swoon * I’ll take him over Angel any day. (Though, I’d be fine with Angel, don’t get me wrong.)
Oh yes. Spike is waaaay more made of awesome than Angel. I could eat him right up. I love the way he treats Dru in the second season!!!
Ah! Very surprising, I love it when that happens! Angel vs Spike? Angel any day, I love him so much…I don’t care if Buffy has been off the air for ages, Buffy/Angel are still one of my favorite TV couples of all time. 🙂
Well, Buffy and Angel are an incredibly romantic couple… It’s just that Spike is THE definition of cool bad-boy, and when he becomes defenseless it’s even better ^_^.
Ha-HA! I love the twist ending! Very nice!
I love it! I could totally see her face fall when she saw him. Great job!
So glad you liked it! 😀
Great story, awesome ending! Lol
Ooh, I want more! What happens next??
