Everyone Needs Protection
My alarm went off at five o'clock in the morning and I groaned. "Ugh, school." After laying in bed for five minutes, I threw the covers back and decided to get up and take a shower. Twenty minutes later, I walked back to my room towel drying my hair when my phone rang. I walked around my bed to my end table and grabbed my phone. "Hello?"
"Hey, Mikayla. What's up?"
"Not much. I really don't want to go to school. How about you?"
"Definitely not. Any of the other girls call you?"
"Not yet but Claire is always late, even on the first day. I haven't heard from Heidi but we all know it's best not to interrupt her beauty sleep. Remember last time?"
"Oh yeah. I still have the scars." Mikayla laughed and I put my phone down to put my uniform shirt on. I picked it back up and she was going on about something. "What were you saying? I put the phone down for a second?" She groaned.
"I was talking about Pogue, you pain in my ass."
"Oh. What about him? The fact that you keep eye-humping him like a horny teenager?"
"Shut up! You are the same way with Caleb, Ms. Hypocritical."
"Whatever, we're all crazy about the boys. Moving on."
"Fine. What's up?"
"Are you getting a weird feeling about anything?"
"Nothing other than wondering why a Darkling showed up last night. In my house, of all places."
"Yeah, that was weird."
"What about you, Mikayla? Anything on your radar?"
"Yeah but if no one else can feel it, it's not a big deal."
"Mikayla, you know we take everyone's feelings into consideration. Sure, only time will tell if it means anything but we still raise our guard if anyone says something."
"You're right, Anna."
"I usually am." Mikayla scoffed at me and I smiled. "I gotta finished get dressed. Meet you at school."
"See ya, Anna." I hung up with Mikayla and finished putting my school uniform. I checked the clock and I groaned when I noticed that it was almost time for me to head to school. I threw on my shoes, grabbed my keys and locked my house up before heading to school. I got to school, parked my Jeep and hopped out. Before I could even step into the building, someone tapped me on my shoulder and I turned around to see Claire waving at me.
"Hiya." I laughed when I realized how wired Claire was.
"You're awfully chipper this morning."
"You will never guess who I talked to last night."
"Can you tell me on the way in?"
"Sure." The two of us started to walk and Claire began to recap her night moment by moment, delaying the inevitable as it were.
"Claire! Who did you talk to last night?"
"Oh! I talked to Tyler last night."
"Simms?" Claire nodded and giggled. "Took you long enough, Claire."
"I didn't know if I could with our, you know, special gifts."
"There is nothing in the rules against fraternizing with who you're protecting. It's actually encouraged, Claire." She gasped and I jumped about half a foot.
"Really?" I nodded slowly. "Oh my gosh, I have to go find Tyler. Bye!" Before I could say goodbye, Claire was out of sight. I blinked a few times and laughed as I shook my head.
"Something funny, Anna?" I turned around and saw Caleb standing behind me.
"Just Claire, being Claire."
"Blissfully ignorant?" I nodded.
"Add that in with her obsession about a certain someone and the certain someone calling her last night, she's like a hamster on crack."
"Certain someone?" Oh damn. There goes my mouth, getting me in trouble again.
"Yeah but I never told you." Caleb laughed.
"Tell me what?"
"Atta boy. What's your first class?"
"English, I think."
"Good. You can tell me about Claire's special someone on the way there." I just nodded and the two of us walked to our first class. "So who is Claire's special someone?"
"Promise not to tell?"
"Sims?" I nodded. "Thank god, he finally called her." I tilted my head at Caleb, making him laugh. "We've been bugging Tyler to say something to Claire for months. I'm just glad he manned up and did it."
"Tyler has a thing for Claire?"
"Yup. I won't even go into detail about Pogue and Reid."
"They won't shut up about their crushes, either."
"Really?" Caleb nodded and stopped at the classroom door. "Who are they?" Caleb laughed and I felt butterflies in my stomach.
"Not so fast. You only get one secret for now." Caleb nodded towards the open classroom door and I groaned.
"You're no fun, Caleb."
"You'll be changing your tune later. Trust me."
That's it for this chapter. Next one will be out soon. Hope you all enjoyed it.
