"Good job, honey, you just uncovered like, all of your life to Niall!" Zelda was pacing around my room.
"I know, I know!" I buried my face in my hands. "I knew that I had said too much, but he wanted to hear more!" I started to cry.
"Kacey Rosa Elit, you know how dangerous a secret like this is! He's gonna find out sooner or later!" Zelda hopped onto my bed. "You can't trust anybody with a secret like this!"
"Except for Niall. He's one of the sweetest, most genuine people I know. If he loved me, he wouldn't betray me like that."
"And you do realize that once the world knows this, you won't be hunted just by your dad."
"At least he still thinks I'm in California with my friends. He just doesn't know where I am."
"But what if he finds out? Girl, what if he tries to kill Niall? Or you?"
"He won't kill Niall, or you, or me. I'm the most powerful half angel there is!"
"That's because you're the only half angel, Kacey."
"I'm still one of the most powerful people that lived in heaven ever. And if it comes to that, I'll sacrifice myself."
"Now why in hell would you do that?"
"Because I love him, Zelda. And I'm pretty sure that Niall loves me! God, you're not helping right now, Zelda. I'm sorry." I walked out of my bedroom to find Niall. The sun was setting, and it was almost ten at night. I found Niall looking out the window. "Niall, is there something wrong? You look really sad."
"No...nothing's wrong, Kacey. Just...just go to bed."
"I'm not leaving until you tell me what's wrong with you." Niall sighed.
"I'm not leaving until you tell me what's wrong with you." I sighed. Kacey was persistent.
"I miss home, Kacey. I miss Ireland and Louis and Zayn and Harry and Liam and..." I put my face in my hands. Was I going to start crying again?
"I...just thought you'd be okay with living in Wisconsin." Kacey had a confused look on her face.
"I do, I do, it's just the fact that...well...it's just not Ireland, Kacey. It just isn't." I looked down at the ground.
Kacey ran her free hand down my back.
"Kacey, what are you doing?" I asked her.
"I know what it's like Niall. To have such a drastic change happen in the blink of an eye..." She looked up at me, her differently colored eyes shining in the moonlight. Would this be a good time to tell Kacey the truth? The truth about her story? But before I could speak, Kacey started talking to me. "When I was born, I was...not what you'd expect. My dad had no idea how to react, so he started beating me and my mom, taking his anger out on us. I had no idea if this was how other dads acted towards their children, and that it was supposed to be kept a secret, because my mom told me to never tell anyone what my dad did to us. When I was fourteen, this night, to be exact, my dad came into my room and took off all of my clothes. And he...he raped me." Her hand was shaking and tears were flowing down her face like a waterfall. "I screamed, and my mom called the cops, and he was sent to jail. We fled to another place where he could never find us that same night, at about 11:45. Tonight's the fourth year I've been away from my dad." Kacey was in tears now. I hugged her.
"Kacey, I'm...I'm so sorry. I hadn't known that..." There was no need for words now. I knew that support now was all Kacey needed.
"That's only part of the truth..." I could hear Kacey whisper.
"Did you say something?" I asked her.
"...no. I...I didn't say anything." Kacey drew me in a hug. "Why are you so warm, Niall?" For this part, I had to tell her the truth.
"I need to keep warm so we can share warmth."
"Just like in your song." Kacey replied. "Is it okay if I sing it?" She looked up at me.
"Go ahead." I smiled.
"The story of my life, I take him home..." I noticed she had changed the lyrics a little bit.
"I drive all night, to keep her warm and time, is frozen..." I sang with her. Kacey pulled away.
"I guess that's enough for now." She held her arm. "I'm going to bed."
"But, we weren't even past the first..." Kacey walked up the stairs.
"You should know why I stopped singing." She shut her bedroom door.
What is wrong with her? Is she scared of me or something?
