I kicked open the cage door. I was breaking out of this place.
Who knew it would be that easy? Not me.
I ran towards the door, and the next thing I saw made me freeze.
There was a PIG with WINGS!!
"I'll have to tell Max," I muttered to myself. I ran out the door, and I popped my wings out.
Freedom. Now, I just have to find the Flock. No emotions, no attitude, no getting mad about them not even attempting to find me.
Forget about it. You're not important.
I mean, think about it. All I was, was the kid with wings. I mean, that is pretty amazing, but in the Flock, it makes me the least important.
Okay, so I can turn invisible, but I have to be motionless.
What good is that?
None. I was unimportant.
I heard something behind me, so I looked over my shoulder.
There was a baby pig flying behind me. It looked confused.
I grinned. Max was going to love this.
Okay, being on a beach isn't fun. I mean, it is, but not when you've had as many bad experiences as I have on a beach, or the love of your life is missing!
So what does a girl
I pretend to enjoy myself, for the others.
Ross looked off. I sighed. I had to talk to him eventually.
"Hey," I said softly.
"I have to talk to you," we said in unison.
"You should probably go first," I said nervously.
"It's about us,"
he admitted. "You go first."
"I think we should just be friends," I said quickly. "Ross, you're really sweet, and I like you, but I love Fang. I always have. I'm so sorry."
He smiled. "That's what I was going to say. Except instead of Fang, it's Nudge. And, I've only loved her for a few months."
I hugged him. "Friends?"
"Friends," he agreed.
Yeah. They all missed me so much. They're on a beach, having fun, and Max is hugging her fucking retarded boyfriend!
I can't do this anymore.
I landed and I glared at them.
"Fang!" Max exclaimed. She pulled back from Ross and ran towards me. "I have to—"
"I'm leaving the Flock," I said through gritted teeth.
choked. "You can't!"
"Actually, I can," I corrected.
Anger was boiling inside of me. I couldn't just let this go on and pretend they like me. It's pretty damn obvious I had been replaced, and no one cared anymore.
replaced you!" Angel shrieked. "We all care about you!"
I rolled my eyes. "I'm leaving."
Max slowly shook her head. "Please don't go," she whispered, her voice cracking.
It hurts when she pretends she cares.
Angel glared at me. Maybe because you know she does, she suggested mentally.
I scowled. "I just thought you guys should know, not that you care," I said while shrugging.
"What is wrong
with you?" Iggy asked coldly. "You're being an ass hole!"
"Fang, no!" Nudge pleaded. "Who else can I talk to about how much I love Ross—?" she covered her mouth, and her cheeks turned bright red.
"Looks like you don't need anyone," I said.
I started running.
"I love you!" I heard Max shout. "Please!"
