I stepped away from the clock. The old clock ticked through the silence.
"Come on," I murmured. "This has to work!" A heavy object crashed to the ground, I spun around.
A tall blue haired man stood up and brushed off his vest.
"So you need something kid?" He said looking up. Something about his face reminded me of something...or someone.
"Do I know you?" I asked.
"Um I don't think so." He said, brushing some hair away from his eyes. That's it, I thought, his eyes. Like Vinnie's!
"Why did you call me?" He asked.
"Well uh...my girlfriend is missing."
"Maybe she left you?" The man smirked.
"NO! She's...we're...I don't have to explain this to you." I crossed my arms. "Just...find her."
"Look buddy, I can't just go around finding people for you."
"But can't you go back in time and stop her from...disappearing?"
"Don't call me kid, I'm stronger than you." I snapped. "Not to mention I actually have a girlfriend."
"Don't get cocky with me vampire!" The time-jumper shouted.
"I have a name." I said, stepping back.
"And I don't care." He stepped closer. "I don't have to help you."
"No! Please! I-I'm sorry." I cried. I hated sucking up to this guy, but I had to. For Vinnie.
"Please, you don't know how much she is to me!" I begged. He sighed. A loud bang echoed off the walls and a young woman appeared.
"Blu! What the hell?!" She shouted, advancing towards him.
"Who's she?" I held back a laugh.
"Emily...hi honey." Blu stuttered. "She's my fiancée."
"Blu, we were in the middle of planning our wedding and you just jump off somewhere!" The girl, Emily, was obviously very upset.
"Em, I'm working. I'll get home soon, okay?" Blu shot an apologetic glance my way.
"Ugh fine." She pulled away from him.
She turned to look at me.
"Kid, don't put all of your faith in Blu." Emily said. "I love him but he can't do everything." And with that she disappeared.
"So you'll help me?" I asked.
