Dark and Dangerous

This is my first movella. Just trying to get into writing. Let me know if you like it x :D


28. Weightless.

I woke up on the couch in my house and rolled my head around trying to loosen a cramp. Wait, was I just asleep? I blinked back the light and saw it wasn't dark. I tried to stand up and felt a small twinge on my leg. I rolled up the leg of my jeans to see a small bruise just under my knee, it was unusual because although I had a few this wasn't there earlier. I went to go into the kitchen and smelt coffee and food. Good food, not the kind I usually eat. Microwavable or just add boiled water. I got a small amount of money from my mother each month. Just enough to keep the bills paid and a small allowance for whatever food I needed. Shane was sat at the breakfast bar with a chopping board and a knife looking like he was trying to hold back the tears as he chopped an onion. Slicing the chunks into even sizes and throwing them into a pot simmering on the stove. He didn't seem to have noticed I was stood there as he started taking leaves off a small plant I didn't recognize on the counter. I coughed just as he had lined them up on the board. "Well hello there sleeping beauty. Finally come to join me finally to help?" I yawned and poured some coffee into a chipped mug off the draining board. "I can't cook and when did you become a chef?" He leaned against the counter and took a sip of the coffee in his mug. "When I learnt to fend for myself." I wished I hadn't asked. "Not everyone can have the fulfilling diet of carrot sticks, apples and dried noodles." He turned to me and shrugged his shoulders before turning to whatever was boiling in the pot, "When did you suddenly become a functioning human?" I asked sarcastically. I must have struck a nerve because he flinched and hunched further over the counter. I don't know what I said but it must have made him feel bad. "Listen, if you do need to talk you can always just talk to me," I offered. "It's not like I can blackmail you after all you know about me." He didn't move, just stood there staring forlornly into the pot and breathing in and out slowly. "You wouldn't understand."
