3. Achey Breaky Backbone

Scarlets room was in all honesty, perfect. A single wooden framed bed, a wardrobe, posters along the walls, a small desk, cluttered with pens, notepads, and her laptop. On the walls, the spaces that werent covered with posters were covered with pictures of us, smiling, laughing, pulling faces. My favourite one was from last year, new years eve, there'd been a huge party at her house, her mom had cooked for hours to get it set up, the picture was of us two with part hats on, we were just holding each other sticking our tongues out at the camera. It always made me smile.

"Swivel, i need to change." I rolled my eyes, but did as she said. "So you wanna watch a film?"  She said over my shoulder, "Yeah, sure, nothing too weak though" I replied. She tapped my shoulder. I turned, she stood in a t-shirt and jeans. Even in her casual clothes she looked like a goddess. I took both her hands and kissed her. She smiles up at me, then puts her head into my dint in my chest. For some reason I'd had a dint in my chest for as long as i could remember. She loved it for some weird unknown reason. A meow made us both look to our feet. Her grey and black stripey cat, Mungo was winding his way around our legs, she picked him up, and cradled him,"hello spazmo" she said into his fur. I scratched his head.

"You should've named him Butters" I said, grinning. She rolled her perfect bronze eyes. We stood there a bit. Looking at each other, Mungo liking the attention. My phone buzzed in my pocket. I flipped it up, a call from mom.


"Hey Seth, I'm going out with the girls tonight so if you wanna sleep over at scarlets, that cool with me." My mom was cool about these kinds of things. "Sure, thanks mom"

"Okay kiddo, have fun, love you"

"love you too mom" I ended the call and slipped my phone back into my pocket, "can i sleep over? My mom's gonna be out pretty much all night"

"Of course, I'll ask mom at dinner"  And as if on queue we heard Ms. Medley from downstairs,

"kids! Dinner!" I smirked at Scarlet then scratched mungo behind the ear once more.


Once we'd had food, me and scarlet went back upstairs and watched a film. she snuggled into my chest. I felt a tingling feeling in my spine. I knew what was coming next. A blast of sharp, icey pain, entwined its way up my spine, into my brain, freezing it over with needles of agony. I couldnt breathe. Scarlet sensed it, "Seth whats wrong? Seth?" She asked frantically. "My back...Shoulders" I turned over, she lifted up my shirt.

"Oh my God, Seth your shoulder blades are...bruised. Like really really bruised" she ran her hands over them, i held my breath so i didnt scream. But then...it was gone. "Wait, its going away..Its gone" I blinked.

"what was that?" she asked, I shook my head.

"i dont know...I just dont know.." I whispered.
