"Okay, you have got to calm down." I told Jenny for what must have been the 8th or 9th time.
"Calm down? Calm down! I'm a cat-girl! No worse, i'm a freak!" She shouted.
"Look, i've called Lydia and she's gonna come over and see if she can help." I said warily.
Jenny's mouth dropped open. "You've called her? You want the girl who did this to me to come over? What sort of person are you?!"
I sighed. She was right, again. But who else was there to call? Lydia was the only shapeshifter who wouldn't try to take her away.
I watched as Jenny started to pace the room, her tail flicking in annoyance. She was so frustrated and there wasn't anthing I could do about it.
"I won't see her." She said shortly.
"You have to see her." I said just as shortly.
Jenny just shook her head and continued pacing the room.
I looked back at my phone. Lydia would be here in a few minutes and then we could get this whole mess cleared up.
Jenny sank into the sofa and started to growl softly.
There was a knock on the door.
I glanced at Jenny and caught her eye. "Be nice." I warned.
"Or what?" She asked defensively.
The door was knocked again.
"Just coming." I called, running down the stairs.
In a burst of purple lightening, the door came flying off it's hinges.
I stopped short as a group of people entered. The lead person was dragging someone behind them. When I looked again I saw it was Lydia.
"We heard princess Amelia was here." The guy holding Lydia said. He shook her slightly and she groaned.
"What have you done to her?" I asked stonily.
The guy shrugged. "We needed answers and she was all to ready too give them."
Jenny you need to run, you're in trouble. I sent the message telepathically.
I stepped back into a fighting stance and prepared myself. Calling on my powers, I felt the electricity run through my arm.
The guy smiled and dropped Lydia, who crumpled on the floor limply.
I'll protect you Jenny, I thought. I promise.
Jenny you need to run, you're in trouble.
The words echoed in my mind.
I looked around the room nervously. Had Tom come back upstairs?
No, I couldn't see him.
A crash came from downstairs.
The window caught my eye. If I had to go, that would be the way out.
I moved towards it slowly. It would be quite a drop, but I suppose my new cat agility would be able to manage it.
I pushed the window up and looked out. I couldn't see anyone below, so at least no one would see me and get freaked out.
Taking a deep breath, I tried to prepare myself for the jump.
Tom hasn't done anything to you to make you trust him, but your still going to do what he says and jump out a window? I thought.
Yes, I thought back. In fact, right now, he's the only one I can trust.
Go now! I couldn't stop them, they're coming up the stairs.
I yelped as the words came through and without a second thought, I jumped.
Halfway through the fall I realised what a stupid idea this had been. There was no way I could clear the landing. I was going to get hurt.
I hit the pavement on my hands and knees and felt my ankle and wrist instantly sprain.
I took in a sharp breath as the pain spread through my arm and leg.
Lying there in, I didn't notice the person approaching me until they were right in front of me.
I looked up at them as they crouched down next to me.
It was a boy. He looked about 18 and had a mop of jet black hair on his head. But what I really noticed was the red glow coming off his fingertips; he was like Tom, a sorcerer.
"I can help if you want." He said softly.
My tail twitched nervously, but I nodded anyway. Even though I didn't know him, the pain was getting unbearable.
The boy held his hands a few inches above my body and closed his eyes. It was just like when Tom had healed me; a warmth spread through my body, healing me.
I felt the pain leave my ankle and wrist and I breathed in relief.
I tried to move.
But I couldn't.
In fact, my limbs felt heavy and my eyes were starting to close.
What was happening?
I looked up at the guy who had healed me.
"You'll wake up soon. But here's a tip for next time; be careful who you trust."
