The door was kicked open as I quickly dashed through the men who yelled in surprise. Sam shot a bullet into my back and I fell forward in a surprised pain. I scurried back up to my feet as a car sped in this direction. I frowned when the car halted at my knees. I hissed angrily as I smashed my fists into the hood denting the hood into the engine which quite running then dashed away when the men ran at me. I knocked over things in my way as I tried to find somewhere to hide.
Hidden in the pool, after removing everything but my shirt, to keep the water from turning red, and listened frantically as the men jogged by. I slowly rose my head up out of the water as my ears twitched and flicked beads of water off of them. I looked at the men who faded in the distance and I nearly laughed at them. I went to stand up when someone gasped in shock. I froze unwilling to turn and face them as I grew red in the face. “What the hell?” The girl who was in her brown bikini suit ready to swim when she saw me standing nearly naked in the pool gasped. I knew she’d already seen my ears because they were hard to miss but she couldn’t see my tail or my claws, nor my teeth and thick markings on my face. “S-Sky?” The girl asked in question and I grew whiter than I was already. “Are you dressed as some kind of anime character or something?” The girl asked me and I knew I’d have to do something before I created a big seen.
“That’s not my real name,” I answered her and she grew red.
“Oh, so now you talk?” She asked me.
“Sky, that’s not my real name. It’s Sora,” I muttered as I attempted to slowly sink back down into the water and succeeded.
“Oh that’s okay, so why are you telling me this?” She asked me in concern.
“I’m in a big mess right now and I need a place to hide,” I whispered back.
“Why?” She asked me.
“I have to hide from these people trying to kill me,” I replied sickly when I heard the sound of loud swearing in the distance.
“Why are you hiding in my pool then?” She asked me.
“I had to get out of their way. It’s a survival instinct, to avoid the enimies eyes. Like a fox and a hound. The fox out runs the hound but only long enough to find a place where the hound can’t find it,” I muttered with my lips nearly in the water.
“I don’t know, I only just met you,” she frowned deeply.
“All the more reason to hide here,” I nearly pled like a puppy.
“Go somewhere else,” she nearly hissed to me.
“Maka,” I muttered. “I can’t go anywhere else because I have nowhere else to go now,” I muttered and Maka was silent.
“Come on, we have to get inside quickly then, so my mom won’t see you,” Maka said to me and I grew sick.
“Maka,” I said to her sickly and she frowned when she realized my tone of illness. “I want you to shut your eyes when I get out of this water,” I said sickly to Maka who frowned in confusion.
“It’s not like I’ve never seen a man’s body before,” Maka muttered as if to be hurt slightly.
“It’s not my body I don’t want you to see,” I said to her and she grew a cold chill.
“What is it then?”
“My biggest secret,” I whispered so she turned around to face away from me. I got up out of the pool and wrapped myself up in a towel hiding my hands and tail, but not my feet or my face. I lifted up my clothes from the ground and dragged them with me as Maka lead me up to her room and I quickly hid in her bathroom.
“Sky,” she frowned as she knocked on my door lightly. “What are you doing?” She asked me as I watched my skin peel off and vanish then grow back turning me back into a human figure. I then cleaned up the blood that had dripped on the ground.
“Maka,” I said from the other side of the door. “I need to wash my clothes,” I said to her and she was quiet when I opened the door and leaned the upper half of my body out of the room.
“Okay,” she frowned as I handed her the blood soaked clothes. She dropped them on the floor sickly and frowned. “What the hell is that all over your clothes?” She gasped.
“My blood,” I answered her then she looked at me and frowned when she couldn’t see any wounds on my skin.
“Liar,” she hissed then she looked at the scar centered under my caller bones. She lifted the clothes up unwillingly and frowned. “You have to explain yourself once I get this stuff into the washer,” she hissed sickly at me then vanished out of the room. I scurried around the house quickly and found a pair of her father’s jeans and a jacket. I then went back into her room and began to look around when I noticed her computer laying on her desk. I couldn’t help but walk over to it then began to tinker with it. I sat on the chair and lifted up the ear piece mic she had. I pushed it over my head and fixed the mic until it sat in front of my lips.
My fingers brushed over the keys of the small laptop then I typed in some things and brought up a static screen, tapped the mic a few times then cleared my throat. “This is Sora Sora,” I muttered to the mic. “I’ve been discovered,” I said in a whisper. “I was ambushed suddenly and chased away from home,” I said as Maka opened the door with her hands around a small radio.
“Sora listen to this,” Maka muttered softly to me and looked at me and froze.
“I’m in some serious shit,” I said to the mic and Maka grew very cold in her skin at the sight of me setting in front of her. “I’m taking calls if anyone has any questions for me,” I said as I ignored Maka then her cellphone rang from the pocket of the pants she now wore. I stood up from the computer and walked up to her. I pushed my hand in her pocket and pulled out her phone. I flipped it open and all she could do was watch me. “This Sora Sora,” I said to the caller on her phone.
“Hey, Sora Sora,” said the voice of Ellabell.
“Yes?” I asked in question.
“What kind of stuff you in?” She asked me.
“Let’s just say I was tired of doing nothing with my power,” I said as I looked down at Maka who seemed so much more shorter than me. “You’re question is up next,” I muttered as I hung up on her and accepted the next call.
“Yes?” I asked the caller.
“Hey, can you tell me how old you are?” A male asked me.
“I’m as old as I am. I’m sorry, that question can’t be answered directly because it could put me and others in peril,” I hissed as I hung up then I put my attention back into the mic. “That’s all for today, I don’t feel like chatting,” I muttered as I turned off the mic then the computer shut down completely. “Maka,” I said and she jumped at my voice as I slipped the phone back into her pockets. I leaned down to her ear causing her to turn bright red. “I’m going to play a game,” I whispered to her.
“What kind of game?” She asked hardly able to continue standing, not because she was so baffled I was Sora Sora but in fear.
“A game of cat and mouse,” I answered her.
“Who’s the cat?” She asked me sickly.
“I’m the cat and the men are the mice. Forgive me Maka but you are now my toy,” I said to her as I placed my arms around her shoulders and pulled her closer to me. “I want you to watch these men die,” I whispered to her as I gripped her arm and dragged her down through the house.
“What the hell my parents will see you,” Maka nearly screamed then grew cold when her parents were asleep in front of the TV’s static screen.
“I put them to sleep,” I said to her and she tried to pull out of my hands only to have me hold her tighter.
“Let go of me,” she yelped in fear.
“These men have screwed with the wrong creature today and I want the world to see what they must learn the painful way. All those who betray me and try to reveal my secret are a threat to me and must be punished and hunted down to and by death,” I hissed as I lead her in town and to the top of an abandon building.
