"Is it just me or does Iggy look a little down?" I asked Fang as we cleaned the kitchen from breakfast.
Fang looked over into the lounge room where Iggy was lying on the couch, his sightless eyes on the ceiling and his arm slung over his forehead.
"I guess" Fang said putting the plates away.
"What do you think is wrong?" I asked again, chewing on the inside of my cheek.
"I don't know, it's Iggy. It could be anything with Iggy" Fang shrugged.
"Exactly, it's Iggy and you know Iggy has more trouble than the rest of us" I added.
"I guess, but Iggy can handle it" Fang said putting his arms around me.
"True, Iggy was always good at that" I nodded.
"Iggy can hear you. Iggy thinks you forget he has such good hearing. Iggy thinks you should stop saying his name so many times in a sentence" Iggy called from the couch and I frowned and Fang chuckled.
"Maybe we should go somewhere a bit quieter then" Fang whispered in my ear with his arms wrapped around me and his chin on my shoulder.
"Maybe we should" I grinned and he took my hand and started leading me upstairs.
"Use protection" Iggy called and I growled in his direction but Fang just laughed and kept pulling me upstairs.
I heard the door close and I sighed. They were like rabbits.
"What exactly are you waiting for?" I asked Nudge.
"The postman" she said simply.
"Why, what did you order?" I asked.
"She ordered the postman" Gazzy snickered and I heard a thump and a squeal and knew Nudge had turned around and hit him.
"Aren't you a little young to be liking guys?" I asked, sitting up.
"Iggy, I'm nearly 14" she sighed.
"And isn't the postman like 39?" I asked, confused and kinda disgusted.
"The postman had his kid working for him now, his kid is like 16" Gazzy laughed and I heard Nudge hit him again.
"Nudge is in love. Nudge loves the postman. She wants his package. They're gonna get married and have their own little packages of joy" Gazzy danced around singing.
I heard Nudge growl and then there was a loud thump followed by a few smaller thumps and I could hear them wrestling on the ground.
All my instincts told me to just sit there going 'Fight, fight, fight, fight' but my big brother instincts kicked in and I went over to them and tried to pry them apart.
There was a knock at the door and Nudge leaped up.
"ZOMG, he's here, how do I look? Is my hair ok? Is my make-up smudged?" She fired at me.
I grabbed her shoulders and shook her.
"You look great Nudge, you're beautiful, you need to calm down" I said and let her go.
"Thanks Ig" she said and bounced over to the door. I sat back down on the couch and shook my head, girls.
"She does realize your blind right?" Gazzy chuckled and I rolled my sightless eyes.
"I'm sure she looks fine anyways" I said and Gazzy went back to watching tv.
I closed my eyes and listened for Nudge.
"Hi Nudge, how you been?" some guy said and I was glad to hear he sounded young.
"Pretty good, boring around here as usual. How about you?" She asked and I rolled my eyes, because 7 flying mutant-hybrids are so boring.
"Same as usual. Boring rounds, that is until I get to here" I heard him grin and Nudge laugh, I swear I could feel the heat from her cheeks from here.
"Well I'm glad we can brighten your day Chase" she said and he laughed.
"It's just you" he said a bit softer and I felt like vomiting.
"Well maybe you could my afternoon one day" he said even softer.
"Are you asking me out?" she asked, her voice a bit higher.
"Well if you don't want to date a postman that's ok, I was just wondering if you wanted to go out tomorrow night or something?" he asked nervously.
"I'd love to" Nudge said, now I really felt like vomiting.
"Awesome. I'll pick you up tomorrow around 7?" he asked.
"Sounds good, I'll see you then" she said and I heard the door close and she walked in and sat down.
"Wow, I'm blind and I can see your glowing" I said pretending to shield my eyes from her glow and she threw a pillow at me.
"Did you even get the mail?" Gazzy asked.
"Oh crap" she jumped up and ran out calling Chase while Gazzy and I rolled around laughing.
When we finally stopped laughing, I heard a new sound.
From upstairs I could hear soft moans and a slight squeaking sound.
"I'm going for a walk" I announced, getting up.
"Want me to come?" Gazzy asked and I frowned. I'm not completely useless.
"Nah, I won't be gone long" I shrugged and left.
I walked out and left towards the town. I never usually headed into town by myself; it was easy to get lost there. But I headed that way nether the less.
I had been walking around aimlessly for about half an hour when I heard someone heading my way. I kept walking; they'd get out of my way.
As they got closer I noticed they weren't moving. Before I could move they had walked right into me. I felt their head hit my chin and I stumbled back.
"Watch where you're going" I snapped, rubbing my jaw.
"You watch where you're going" they snapped back and I realized it was a girl, around my age by the sound of it.
"I cant, I'm blind" I said with a 'duh' tone.
"So am I" she said and I felt my eyes widen in surprise.
"Iggy?" she asked with curiosity.
How did she know my name?
