Heaven Sent

Blue eyes, dark hair over one eye, pale skin...
Who is the mysterious boy that saved Nahla on the night of the fight?
Why is he here? For her sake? Well, Roux is no ordinary guy... Doing what he does is difficult. Not to break the law, bend the rules, to be with her... but, they can get away with it. Can't they?...


8. Roux

I hold her loosely around the waist, our cheeks touching. But, she's gone suddenly stiff and pale. I let go. Why did I have to go and do that? It was going so well. My wings flap in the breeze, feathers ruffling. She reaches out, stunned.

Her eyes widen, gaping. She stumbles. "No, please don't leave."

I reach out for her arm again but she slips through my fingers, and all I can see is her tense, white face in utter amazement. "Freak...get away from me!" She leaps backwards .

Then, she turns on her heal and pelts away from me. Through the trees and over the school field into the distance.

I turn away. How could she do this to me? Well, I guess what should I expect? That's just who I am and what people think of me. I put my head in my hands, a single, Scarlett drop falling to the leaves. Blood. That's what we cry when we're hurt, deep down.
