Asnwered Questions And Another Invite
While my mother went back to her bed to cry and sleep before getting up for work, I finally got in the shower and almost fell. Water had always helped me think, it was just a soothing thing.
"So when Barry dies I-"
"Turn bright blonde and will have a tough time with the eyes." I almost screamed again when I spotted Ash standing in the corner of the room, facing the wall.
"What are you doing here???" I hissed and returned round. "Ash!!!" his eyes were closed as he leaned against the wall and crossed his ankles.
"What??? I can't see you."
"Doesn't make it okay!!!" he chuckled and I finished rinsing my hair and turned off the shower. I quietly wrapped a towel around me and tip toed over to him, raising my hand to slap his pale cheek.
"I wouldn't do that if I were you." his eyes cracked open and his hands shot out. One grabbed my wrist and the other wrapped around my waist and pulled me closer to the body it belonged to. He let go of my wrist and held my hand instead, making me move into a dancing pose. "Always was the little mover, pretending you could dance on stage with your heels on."
He snapped his fingers and we disappeared from the bathroom and turned up on a stage, with hundreds of people. Ash stood there with me, dressed in a White tuxedo and holding out his hand to me for the taking. I looked down at what I wore and saw a White dress that overlapped itself and a gold thick belt around my waist with gold heels that were gorgeous.
I took Ash's hand and he spun me in, my feet moving to the beat of the ballroom piano. It was like they didn't belong to me, they just moved. We spun, twirled, stepped and stopped at the exact second we were supposed to. It was brilliant. When we were done people threw roses at our feet and I smiled, was that me or Ash's ability???
He picked up a bockay of roses and lilies and took a lily from the bunch before slipping in my hair and giving me the bunch. "a little souvenir for the little princess."
The scene disappeared but I didn't. We were standing in the exact same pose as we had on the stage, the flowers were still in my hands and when I put my hand to my ear I felt the lily a little farther up. I looked at Ash, still in his tuxedo and watched as it faded.
I looked down and clamped my hands over Ash's eyes so he wouldn't see me stark naked. He laughed and pulled me close to him and I saw he was still wearing the outfit he had on before. My towel became more visible as each thread disappeared from the dress.
"Don't go," I whispered as the dress finally disappeared and Ash chuckled at me. "Why are you doing this???"
"Your starting training. Today." I shook my head, I was not going to go through that again, not hurting people I know. The phone rang and before Ash could protest, I jumped away from him and ran to answer it.
"My mums going to Cruden Bay to say hello to a friend or two." Joel said as soon as he heard me say hello. "I'll text you as soon as we get there. You have explaining to do." then He hung up.
"What a waste of space and time he is." I turned round slowly to face him and almost slapped him.
"Don't you dare say that about Joel. Never ever say that about Joel." I growled, stepping so close to him that we could almost kiss. He bent down closer to my ear.
"You know it too, you don't love him at all. He's merely a crush." Ash turned my face quickly to give me a kiss and disappeared.
I sat down on my bed and cried. I was frustrated. I my mother knew what was happening and she never told me!!! Joel was questioning what was happening, I was getting confused between the two guys, I was beginning to get too powerful and I was beginning to look like them.
I definitely needed to get some contacts.
I heard mum shuffling about in her bedroom and stood up. My brother was basically a goner and that was enough to start me off. Great. I heard a car stop outside and a car door slam. Spying it the window, I saw Joel walk up the drive and raced down to open the door to him.
"Don't lie to me. Not anymore." he whispered, a look of pain glittering in his shaking eyes.
"You never asked, therefore I never lied Joel." I opened the door wide to let him in and he shook his head, grabbing my arm and pulling me outside and into his arms.
"Promise you won't lie to me???"
"I promise." he hugged me tight and sighed.
"Where do we start???" I spent the next hour answer Joel's questions and trying to plant and re-plant flowers. We had sat down on the stone steps in front of my door.
"So, you have to train and they used one of your best friends to begin with???" I nodded. "Can I help???" I shook my head, "why not???"
"I could kill you, I'm not gonna let you die because you want to help me."
"What about me??? Can I help???" I heard Ash say near my ear and felt his lips on my neck but when I looked at Joel he seemed unphased.
"Well, I don't see how I'm different from anyone else," I lifted my hand to his face and kissed him gently.
"Your special Joel, to me, your more important than anyone else." he gripped my waist and lifted me to sit in between his crossed legs. I turned my head and we sat, kissing as Ash growled in my ear. Joel pulled back and I leaned my head back onto his shoulder and he leaned his head awkwardly on mine.
"What else can you do??? As well as plant flowers and kiss good???" I giggled at him and he wrapped his arms around my waist, tightly holding onto me. I felt safe, like nothing could hurt me.
"Wait to see if you noticed the changes." he looked at me properly and opened his mouth to something. Then closed it again. And did this for the next few minutes. He closed his mouth and I jumped quickly to kiss it before he did a fish action again.
"What the he'll have you done to yourself???" he whispered once I pulled away. He held a lock of blond hair in his hands and looked into my eyes.
"I didn't do anything, I-" he kissed me before j could say anything else and cupped my head in his hands as I wrapped my arms around him. He pulled away, looked at me and kissed me again. And again. And again.
"Nikita," he panted once he pulled away, "I don't care, you still look amazing. You're still my Nikita." I smiled and leaned my forehead on his.
"Really???" he nodded and stroked my cheek. "Mind if I go bright pink then???" he chuckled and then looked wide eyed at me when I didn't.
"You dint mean it do you???" I laughed and he blew out a breath and grinned.
"When's your mum coming to pick you up???" he shrugged his shoulders and smiled. "Well, I might go into Peterhead later; I am not staying blonde like this."
"What about the eyes???"
"My first priority." he nodded and stood up, backing into the blonde idiot behind him.
"Hello Jiel." he said in an evil voice. I glared at Ash and he just grinned devilishly.
"It's Joel actually." Ash rolled his head to the side as if to say and I care???
"Ash what are you doing here??? Get lost. Now." he grinned at me disappeared. Joel held out a hand for me and I grabbed it, using it to help myself get upon my feet again.
"What has he got against me???" I shook my head and kept my mouth shut. He held my waist and kissed my ear as I giggled at him. "Flush, I want you to meet my family soon. I don't know when yet, but soon."
"Okay, just text me when." he grinned at me and kissed me quickly. "And don't worry 'bout Ash, he's a muppet." he chuckled and I grinned at him, his chuckling made my heart skip a beat, every time.
"I have nothing against him," I raised an eyebrow at him, "But when he gets in between us or tries anything on you he's dead." I swallowed, hard to kill a dead man, I thought, especially a dead man like me.
"Forget about him, okay, nothing's going to happen. I love you Joel, not Ash." he grinned at me and kissed me again, licking my bottom lip, asking me to open up. I opened my mouth a tiny bit and he smiled against my lips, knowing I was being jokingly mean. I opened my mouth a little more and let him in. He slipped his Tongue over mine, mingling with me and cupping my cheek in his hand and holding me close to him by the waist. I moved my hands around his neck and held the back of it, moving my mouth in time with his and biting his bottom lip every now and then. We heard the sound of a car coming closer and stopped, pulling away for air, grinning at each other as we did.
A black Alfa Romeo came into view and stopped at the road beside my house. A small woman with ginger-blonde hair and tanned skin got out to the car and walked up the drive before spotting her song holding me by the waist and the cheek.
"Oh, Joel. And you must be Nikita???" she smiled threw her thin lips as her eyes shone at the sight of us. Joel removed his hand from my cheek and turned to face his mother, keeping on hand around my waist and shoving the other in his back pocket.
"Yeah, nice to meet you Mrs Robertson," I held a hand out to her and she shook it, holding it with both hands.
"Amanda, call me Amanda." I grinned at her and she laughed before turning to her son. "Come on Joel, we need to go home, your father will be waiting for his supper."
She smiled again at me as Joel kissed me quickly on the cheek and began walking after his mother. When they were at the bottom of the stone steps she turned back to me and said loudly, "You come over for supper on Saturday, we would love to have you over!!! Good bye Nikita!!!" I laughed after her and Joel waved goodbye to me as I blew him kisses.
"I would love to Amanda!!! Bye Joel, see you at school!!!" I waited, waving until they had disappeared, Joel and his mother waving as they drove past, before running inside and into my bedroom. I was going to Joel's house for supper on Saturday!!!
