After a few days, the doctors took off my cast and splint and put me in the back of a squad car. Murt and I had an argument about how I would never do a thing like this but the world is about evidence, not trust…or friendship. There was only one piece of good news for me, they found a hurl in the next garden but now Papa Sharkey was requesting protection from me!
During the car drive, I started coughing all of sudden; there was a sickening smell in the air, smoke.
"Moon you all ri-" he sniffed the air too, "oil line, okay," he double-parked on the road, "Come on." He lifted me out of the car and sat me on a path twenty feet away. "Don't run off alright?" he chuckled.
"Right…" I scuffed, looking away. He frowned then ran off to fix his car.
I sighed, 'My life has taken a turn for the "even-worse".' I hugged my knees, 'Just kill me already…'
"Get on the back, Half Moon." I almost jumped out of my skin. I let out a string of curses and looked up at the jerk who scared me. He was on a bike and had a ski mask on. I screamed the first thing that popped in my head, "HELP!" I threw some dirt and pebbles at the guy, he didn't even twitch.
Rolling his eyes, he pulled off his ski mask, swung off his bike, kicked the stand and squatted down next to me. It was Red. I screamed the second thing that came to my mind, "ATTACK!"
He put his hand over my mouth, "Shut up will you. I heard the rumors, it wasn't me, my hurl was stolen. They're framing me like they're framing you. Besides, you don't got the balls to set a fire."
"I don't even have balls jerk." I pushed his face away.
I heard cursing and coughing, it was Murt, he was coming.
"Time to go." He grabbed my arm and pulled me up. My knees buckled and threatened to collapse. He caught my waist and held me up.
I pulled away and tried to stand as hard as I could, "I'm not going."
"Half Moon, if you don't get on the bike now, you'll be charged for nothing and the real criminal will get away, is that what you want?"
He was right…for once…I shook my head.
"Exactly, now let's go." Then I thought of something.
"Wait, you can't be doing this just for me. What's your true motive?"
"I-…I don't want to end up in juvie. That's not the way I want to live…" I looked in his eyes; I saw sadness mixed with anger.
I sighed, "I don't know...This feels wrong…"
I heard Murt growl and turned around. He threw an oily rag to the ground, frustrated. Then he looked up and saw what was happening. "Hey! What are you doing?"
"Coming or going?" He asked, pulling his ski mask back on.
"Don't move, Moon! Stay right where you are!"
Red got back on his bike and kicked up the stand. "I bet your file has already been sent in, they're gonna consider you a threat. Want to be hated even more than you are now?"
"Moon! Don't do it!" he started running toward us.
I hated this, I needed time to think this over. Why always me?
"Half Moon, I would never attack you, or set that fire. There's a mystery to be solved and I know you're the only one who can solve it." He held out his hand.
I sighed, turned around and screamed, "Sorry, Murt! But I didn't do it!"
I took Red's hand and he swung me onto the seat of the bike. I put my arms around his waist and hung on not a moment too soon. He put his weight on the pedals and road off, picking up speed in no time.
"You rotten kids!" he panted. "Get back here or I'll-"
"There's a case to be solved, Murt! Don't tell my mom!" I screamed back. He shook his fist at us, and then became smaller and smaller until he was just a speck on the road.
Red took the long way home. Why? I didn't know. I started to fall asleep but was awaken by a bump on the road.
"Eh!" I squeaked, holding on tighter to Red. I felt him stiffen, his heart beat faster. I ignored it for now, I had more important things to think about.
By the time we got to Chez Sharkey, Red's house (or mansion…), it was around 7:00, judging from the position of the sun.
For the first time in my life, I looked at the house up close. I was huge! "Damn…this place must be worth a fortune…"
He shrugged, which was dangerous on a bike. "Maybe, but Papa would never sell this place, mom loved it too much."
Red's mom…she died a few years ago. I remember when he heard the news at lunch. He kept on eating his sandwich then crumpled up the tin foil and threw it away. He was gone for 3 months after that. I guess no one ever asked if he was okay…same thing happened to me when Dad died…guess we weren't so different after all.
After Red free-wheeled through the back, he hopped off his bike as I wobbled off, trying I get used to the gravity after the ride. He parked his bike by the wall and pulled off his ski mask, shaking the sweat from his hair like a dog.
He looked so hot… I drooled mentally. When he looked at me, I turned away, blushing. Thank goodness it was dark…ish…
"Stay here and out of sight."
"Out of sight?"
"Yeah. Number one, I didn't tell Papa about this yet and two, I just broke you out of jail, so I don't want you to go back okay?"
"But I thought you had a plan!" I hissed.
"I had the first part, breaking you out. I thought you could handle the rest of it, bright spark."
"My name is Belinda, Red. Or there's Belle, or Linda, or what I'm most commonly known as, "Loser", "Goth", "Emo chick", "Puny", "Shrimp", or even "Hey you!" Just don't call me Half Moon or whatever "bright spark"." I mocked.
"Hmmm…and do you know my name?" he smirked, bending down to my level. I looked up at the sky.
"Red?" I guessed.
He chuckled, "I thought so." Then he winked at me. Shivers went down my spine.
We sneaked into his house. I took in the details, tall ceilings, faded wallpaper that was curled in the corners, hallways that lead t-
"Oof!" Red pushed me into a room, almost making me fall flat on my face if it weren't for the bed in the corner. "Eep!", my face landed in the pillow, the pain from my nose sprang to my eyes, tears escaped, "Ow!" I bit my lip so I didn't start crying out of nowhere.
"Eh…s-sorry... guess I don't know my own strengths." He picked me up and sat me upright. "Anyways, here's a cell phone that can't call but it can text and the number is private so no one can call back." He whispered, handing me a disposable phone. "Oh, and the lights don't work so don't even bother." He walked out, slowly closing the door. The room felt stale and lifeless without him. I looked down at the phone, 'Why would I need this? Call my teddy bear?'
I threw the phone across the room and lay on the bed, biting my lip again so I didn't scream at the pain. It was too early for me. I was used to sleeping very, very late at night. I squeezed my eyes shut, waiting for the painkillers to take me back to dreamland, but for me, it was a hell of raging flames and broken bones.
