TITLE: Through Closed Eyes
GENRE: YA Paranormal
I listened to the kids laugh as they told jokes they thought only their friends could hear, but I couldn't let their noises distract me. At least not now.
I felt air brush my cheek, and I slowly closed my eyes. He moved silently in the room, in a way no normal person would ever be capable of.
"What do you think?" I whispered, smiling as I turned my head to look at him. I gestured to the little kids playing outside the window, "Don't they look happy to you?"
"No, they look like they wish they were," he said, sitting beside me. He looked around slowly, like he always does when he finds me up here. His eyes were full of confusion, as if he couldn't understand the appeal. I followed his gaze around, looking at the dust covering the piles of crates that crowded the room. They served an important purpose to me because they masked scents, and hid my presence, at least from people who didn't know me well.
Since this room was one of the restricted zones, it was a peaceful place away from the other students.
"I think they're lucky," I said bringing my eyes back to the window, a window so dirty that most people wouldn't be able to see through. I watched a young girl riding a bike zoom by, her laughter echoing
through the air.
