It's amazing how school can take forever when your anxious about something. It frustrated me, more than anything. I couldn't even look into his mind to figure out what Jay wanted to talk about. As if the headache I had wasn't enough already, now I had an even worse headache from trying to break into Jay's mind. This was torture.

Finally, I heard the last bell ring. I jumped out of my desk, only to stop when the room began spinning.

"Are you okay?" Asked the teacher. I nodded, ignoring the pain, and tried to walk out as normal as possible.

*~*

I walked over to the light post Jay was leaning on. As I neared , he looked up, hearing the gravel beneath my feet. He smirked and I wanted to punch him. He looked mocking. I stumbled, and he snickered.

"Feeling a little exhausted? I can't imagine why." He said, mockingly. My panic level immediately rose. What did he know?

"I have no idea what your talking about." I said. By now I was amazing at controlling my facial expressions.

He walked up and lowered his face until he was right in front of me. Even without reading his emotions, I could see the hatred in his eyes. What did I miss? Only yesterday, we were playing basketball together. Only this morning, he was concerned about me.

"I think you know exactly what I'm talking about." He snarled. " You, with your innocent little act, and your mind games." Oh no. Oh no, no, no. He couldn't be talking about what I think he's talking about.

I threw everything I had into cracking into his mind. All my energy attacked his mind. Almost immediately, I felt the block. It had the same effect as running into a brick wall, running as fast as you can. I collapsed as my brain exploded with pain. I could hear myself gasping. I couldn't handle this. It hurt so much. I struggled to catch my breath.

I could hear Jay chuckling. That sick bastard. He thought this was funny? Of course he did. I should know better by now. I let myself trust him and this is what happened. I held back a sob.

I saw Jay bend down and heard him whisper in my ear. His breath tickled my ear.

"Never do that again."

Jay's POV

That was... Hard. I couldn't believe that I just did that. She looked so broken. I hated hurting her, but she was getting to close.

Over the years, I had learned that if anyone of these... Creatures, got to close, they could destroy you. And I mean destroy. They say that there are things worse that death? Well this is one of those. It may sound clichè, but it's the truth. It happened to Gabe.

The thought of Gabe hardened me. I was doing this for him. All of this.

I knew I had to do something when I realized how concerned I was for her this morning. I've never let myself get that close, never let myself feel anything but hatred.

I almost felt bad for how far I pushed her. She almost seemed like the type to consider suicide. I stopped myself. This is what got me here in the first place, I scolded myself. If she committed suicide, fine. All the easier for me then.

I wasn't looking forward to killing her.
