  1. Gumbo managed to start a fire with Ash. We crowded around it, the heat diminishing the cold frost of the Core. April was sure to get some McDonald's before heading to the Core, so for dinner we all had chicken sandwiches and limp french fries. "So tell us about your amazing adventure," I told Ash with intended melodramacy. "You haven't changed one bit," he said with a teasing smile. "So I was living in Arizona and I almost always skipped school so you probably never saw me there. Christofer and James would come over, play some video games and talk about our powers. Then one day, Christofer told me about this girl that he met at the mailbox. And as the wise ladies man I am, I told him to make a move on you. And it was probably the stupidest thing that has come out of this precious mouth because little did I know I was going to get pulled into all of this crap afterwards.
  2. Then my mom wiped your memory and then you guys moved to California, which I was incredulously pissed off about because I knew I was going to have to go there too, eventually. As for Christofer, I've been keeping an eye on you, though he doesn't know. And then I heard Christofer got kidnapped so here I am." I took a bite from my sandwich and took a long time chewing it. "So you were here all along?" "I think I covered that already, yeah." April was done with her food and she stuffed the trash in her bag because she didn't want to litter. "So how are going to find June?" Alex asked, changing the subject. "I guess we might find the Compor on the way. It's going to take us maybe 2-3 more days to get out of the Provinces itself , so we'll have a lot of time to find the mermaid," Gumbo said. "That's a long time," Alex commented. "Yeah, but it's worth," I heard myself say. I regretted it immediately.
  3. I caught Alex's eye and looked quickly away. I dazed off into the fire, watching the embers crackle and sizzle in the flames. I sat there watching the fire until I uncannily crumpled my sandwich wrapper in my hands. I put the trash away and snuggled into my sleeping bag, dragging it away from the rest, isolating myself. I made sure not to be too close to the pond where a mermaid might slit my throat or take me to their world and force me to eat seaweed. Ash was taking first watch, Gumbo second, Alex third, April fourth, and me? Last. I gazed up at the stars and remembered when I did this with Alex at the park. Was he thinking about that memory too? I really wish he wasn't reading my thoughts right now. I don't understand why he's acting so...hostile all of a sudden. I closed my eyes and then for what felt like only 5 minutes, I felt a presence close to me.
  4. I opened my eyes and jumped in shock as Gumbo's face was right next to mine. He smirked and licked his nose. "What do you want, Gumbo?" I wiped my eyes irritatingly. "It's Alex's turn to take guard," he replied. I balanced myself on one elbow and tilted my head. "So? Then go wake him up." Gumbo whinnied and said, "I'm tired from fighting. I need rest, darling. Here's a brilliant idea: why don't you wake him up for me?" I caught Gumbo's hint and nodded slightly. "What are you getting at here?" Gumbo smirked. "I'm trying to help you figure out your feelings." Gumbo curled up on the ground and fell soundlessly to sleep.
  5. I crept along to Alex's sleeping bag and knelt down. I sat there at first, taking in what he looked like. Seeing him so vulnerable almost put me to tears. I was afraid of waking him. I extended my arm carefully and tapped him lightly on the shoulder. He stirred but didn't completely wake. I poked him on the arm and whispered his name. I poked him again and he opened his eyes. He groaned and sat up. He saw me and his jaw flinched. He got up solemnly and took his position for look out. I sighed heavily and sat down next to him. "Alex, what's wrong?" He was shivering slightly. "Nothing." I got up and got a blanket, his eyes watching me until I got back. I put the blanket around the both of us and he breathed in heavily. We sat there staring at the vegetation around his. Every minute or so we'd hear a weird noise from an Inferior, but nothing became a threat to the camp. "I hope we find Christofer," I mumbled out.
  6. I knew it was the wrong thing to say, but I just wanted to hear Alex talk. I wanted to know why he was acting like he was mad at me when I didn't do anything to him that would make him feel that way towards me. "Of course you do," he said flatly. "What's that supposed to mean?" I asked, facing him. Alex pierced through me with his blue eyes. I felt like crawling up in a corner in fetal position staring at a wall because of the look he gave me. "Just drop it." I was relieved that he didn't yell at me, but he was acting like a butt-hurt jerk, and I wasn't going to take it. "I can't drop it, Alex. You're acting like you want nothing to do with me anymore." Alex looked at me again with softer eyes. Yet his voice was harsh. "Really? Because it seems like the other way around for me. Ever since Christofer shows up he's all you think about now."
  7. "You said you wouldn't read my mind unless I told you too," I hissed. "Christofer was KIDNAPPED, Alex, of course I'm going to think about whether he's okay, whether he's dead or alive! You don't understand how much he's done for me, how much I need to do this." Alex's jaw flexed. "It started before he got kidnapped! After we kissed and after the accident everything is about Christofer now and pains me inside."
  8. Ignoring his last comment I said in a much louder voice, "I needed Christofer for answers. I can't be around you all the time, Alex. And if it hurts you so much than why are you here? You don't have to be here, you don't have to help rescue Christofer. Hell, I'll rescue our parents by myself if I have to. But I don't know why you're so bothered by Christofer because you specifically said you were okay with being friends!" Alex removed the blanket from himself and coldly said, "I'm here for you! I'm not here to rescue your ex boyfriend, I'm here to keep you safe, I'm here to try and change your feelings for me, I'm here for you and only you. I only said I was fine with being friends because I thought that you would pick me. I thought Christofer would stay your ex, that what happened at the park would symbolize something. But no. I read your mind, and your feelings for me are fading away. It feels like you don't care about me anymore, and it sucks because all I care about is you."
  9. Then it occurred to me that I am breaking Alex's heart every minute that pasts. I would understand how he feels because I felt the same way when I thought he was going out with Denise Jaminson. "Alex..." He got up and murmured as he walked away, "It's time for April's shift. Get some rest." I heard his footsteps getting softer and softer until they stopped. I made a fist and propped my forehead on it. It wasn't until I was sobbing did I realize I was crying in the first place. I hoped he could hear me. I hoped if he saw or heard me then he'd know that I still cared, that I...liked him a lot. I didn't hear April coming until she sat down so I didn't have time to mask my tears. I wish Sam was here. I wish I could see his face, he could make me laugh, and everything would be okay just for that moment when he's with me. And then it pained me afterwards knowing I probably wont be seeing him again in about 3 days. And it also dawned on me that Alex hasn't called me "princess" in a while either.
  10. April put her hand on my shoulder and gave me an optimistic smile. "You heard?" She nodded and pointed a finger to my head. "You need someone to talk to, I'm right here." I wiped away my tears and smiled unsteadily. "Read my mind and tell me honestly who and what I think about." April closed her eyes and breathed in lightly. She opened them again, trying to suppress her sympathy towards me. "You love both of them," she said in a whisper. "Wow, you're good. I don't even know that," I said, trying to laugh. She frowned and I choked on another cry. "It's hard. The feelings for Christofer that I had before are coming back to me at one time, getting stronger by the second. But then everything I had with Alex...He's infuriatingly irresistible and I want him so bad. I want both of them, yet I can't have them. "Hey, just give it some time," April reassured. "Let's get it off your mind. I brought my laptop with me, and surprisingly enough, they have wifi here." I laughed lightly while April went to get her laptop. I remember the time when Alex called me Misty. Who exactly was she? A girlfriend probably; or maybe a best friend. April was back, her laptop already on Google Chrome. She typed in YouTube and searched in the box, "April vs. Natalie".
  11. She scrolled down and clicked on a four minute long video. It started playing and I could clearly see April tugging and pulling on Natalie's here. April dug her nails into her arm, like a bird would on prey. "The last two minutes is just Mr. Woodbury trying to break us up," April said. I continued watching the video, wondering if maybe Mr. Woodbury had more hair back then. There was a flash of dark red in the background for just a millisecond and then Mr. Woodbury appeared. I rewound the video back and then paused on the red flash. "It can't be..." April and I exchanged shocked looks as we ran to tell the others.
