Chapter 8: Dustin's Memory
Dustin sat down on his couch,wearing black jeans,combat boots with no shirt.His hair wet from the recent shower he took,his purple eyes fixed on a photo of his mother,father,and his sister.His mother,Annabeth,was pregnant with him at the time of the photo.Dustin reached out for it and he grabbed it before it fell to the floor,he studied his parents visible skin,looking for a genkey symbol.Minutes later he found it on his mother's neck,it was black and the one on his father,Viktor,was green."So..I got my element from my father..and Samantha has death..like Layla",he said to himself.A knock on the door startled him and he put the photo down,walking to the door and opened it.It was Carmen.
"Ello Dustin!",she said with a smile.
Dustin groaned and wave hello,"and you are here why...Carmen?".
Carmen put her hands on her hip,"you have missed three days of school and even Sam is worried about you..and you know he don't care for anything but the ladies".She rolled her eyes saying the last part.She tried to walk in the house but Dustin put his arm in the way.
"And what do you think you are doing..?",he asked annoyed at her.
Carmen gasped and stepped back,"what the hell is on your head??".
Dustin looked at her strangely then looked at a mirror,and what do ya' know; two black furry ears were on his head and flopped to the side,'I got my ears....finally..now what about my genkey?',he though to himself.He heard the sound of a picture being taken and he whipped around.Carmen took about five pictures and giggled like a little school girl.
"Aww!! You looked so adorable Dustin boo!!",she laughed taking another picture.
Dustin growled and slammed the door in her face,"fuck!! And she wonders why I broke up with her ass..",he walked back to the couch and sat down,knocking over the red pillows,he grabbed the photo and laid down on his back with the picture on his chest.He went to sleep,dreaming of his family hugging him after all those years.
