9. Promises

Scarlet was, needless to say, speechless. Five times she went to say something, and five times she didnt, just kept the same bewildered expression on her face. It would've been cute, if we werent being chased by mysterious guys in nicely tailored suits who could quite easily put their hands through a six inch thick wall of steel with little effort (at least thats how it seemed because that hit, hurt). I flew back home, luckily my window was open, making it easy for scarlet to get in. it was a little more difficult for me, having to close my wings into my body as close as possible. Eventually, after two minutes of swearing, i was in my room staring Scarlet in the face. "Um..I..You..Have..Wings..?" I looked at both my wings, almost comically, and replied,"Yup." I had to admit they were pretty cool, they seemed to have healed, only dotted with the rare tatty feather. They were massive, and weighed a ton, and black, flecked with bits of white at the tips of some of the feathers.

"Scarlet, you know how much i trust you." She nodded,"and you know how much you mean to me," Another nod "Which is why you have to come with me to paris, to find out what this is all about, and i understand if you dont want to, it'll be dangerous, but i cant do this alone.." she stepped toward me, put a finger over my lips, and said, rather simply actually,

"Do you really think I'd let you go to your certain doom, alone? You can barely breathe without me reminding you" She smiled in that way only she could. I put my arms around her waist, and for a second i forgot about my problems, forgot about my dad, and only focused on her. "Your Mom wont be home until morning, she said at the hospital she had to fly off to DC for some meeting."

"Okay, that means i can get some shut eye" Although i still questioned how i would sleep with my wings digging into my shoulder blades but you know. I lay down on my bed, breathing a sigh, Scarlet rested her head on my collar bone, "Never leave me, ever." I whispered into her ear,

"Never Seth. Never, I promise" We both fell asleep at the same time, an abyss of dark comforting unconciousness.
