I woke up in my apartment. Everything was quiet. Sky and I had returned here after the encounter with Henry. Though I was still being hunted, no one would come looking here twice. I was already seen here once and if you’re a good hunter you’ll not hide in the same place twice. Good thing me and Sky are crazy. No one would think we’re coming back.
So, to summarize it all, this is the best hiding place. Though, we still got to be careful not to make any loud sound or stray near the windows.
Sky was still sprawled on the bed. His wound was nearly healed and we’ve been doing nothing for days and I swear it was driving me crazier that I already am.
I really loved being with him but I couldn’t let things go any further.
I am a monster. Whilst he is human. There are some things that just can’t mix.
Besides, I need to get my face out of the bounty page. So, with that in mind, I stood up from the bed. Making sure that I made no sound or move that will wake him up. I picked my leather jacket and wore it above a plain white shirt. Then, I slung my backpack on my left shoulder. At the door, I wore my worn-out boots and made sure the daggers were still inside.
Finally, I gave one more look at my beat-up apartment and tired not to think about the man sleeping in my room. Without any more words, I placed my hand in the door knob. But before I could even turn it, I heard Sky’s voice.
“Will I ever see you again?”
The words were stuck on my throat. I wanted to stay that I would come back. That I would stay. But that wasn’t the truth. It may be what I want but it doesn’t mean that it’s right. So, without looking back at him I answered,
“No.” I choked.
Then I burst out of the room before he could even grasped what I said or before I could even take it back. Because I so wanted too.
Tears blurred my vision as I ran. Ran away from the only person who ever saw what I really am and stayed. And it broke my heart like never before. I would miss all the bantering we do. All the hunts we’ve shared. All the things we’re done together. And most of all, I would miss what he made me feel. I would miss him.
But too much death happens around me. And I don’t want it to happen to him. I am cursed.
I reached my destination without me really thinking about it.
I needed to remove that bounty on me. And since many hunters have witnessed that Sky helped me, it would also put him in danger. The only way to remove him in the line of fire is to remove my bounty. And it’s the least I could do for him before I completely vanish.
So, with renewed fervor, I barged into the room.
But the usual noisy, crowded place was quiet and empty. Not to mention, messy. Papers were on the floor like someone had dropped them. Some chairs overturned like the people who sat in it stood up hurriedly. Computers were still open and running. The building looked like it was abandoned in a rush.
And it looked like a horror movie reject.
I walked slowly towards Jack’s desk. And saw that it was in the same situation like the whole place. His desk was messy with all the bounty he was crossing off. Then, my eyes wandered towards a picture frame at the corner. Like it was trying not to gain attention to itself. I picked it up and saw some markings on the back side of the frame.
“Me and my sister. 2011”
Curious, I flipped it towards me. The frame held a photo of two young kids. The boy, obviously older of the two (10 in age), had unruly blond hair that was standing up in different directions. His blue eyes as beautiful as the ocean. The boy had his arms slung on the shoulder of the little girl. Her long hair curled at the tail was the purest of red. Her twinkling eyes was a mix of blue and green.
My breath caught in my lungs and my heart stopped beating.
It was me.
And Jack is my brother?
