"Ok... What?!" I asked for about the millionth time.
"Ok... So Izaya and I have powers. Izaya has super speed and I..... Well I can read people's minds...." Ash said trying to put it in a way I understood.
"So what about the whole protector thing?" I asked remembering the words from my dream. 'Toki will protect you' is what my mom had said.
"Well.... I don't know exactly who your protector is.... But your mom said you would meet him or her the day you learned the way your parents died. So... Did you meet anyone new yesterday?" Ash asked.
I scowled. I was hoping that it wasn't true, but I guess it is.
"So Toki's my protector than. That's what mom said, but I was hoping it was just someone with the same name." I said looking at the ceiling.
"So you already knew who it was,but you were still asking all these questions!?" Ash asked gaping at me.
I shrugged. "So, how come he didn't say anything when he introduced himself?" I asked.
"That's because protectors aren't told who they are to protect. They are only told in what town and state." Ash explained.
I sighed and glanced at the time. "Ash! We're late for school!" I yelled.
Ash looked up as well and cursed under his breath. We both ran away from each other and into our rooms to get dressed. I quickly slipped into a pair of black shorts and black tank top. I put on a yellow jacket and running shoes as well.
I grabbed my backpack and phone and quickly ran out of the house. I chased after Ash who had gotten in front of me at some point. We bolted down the street and into the school, just as first period ended. Ash and I both sighed and headed to our lockers. I jumped in surprise when someone grabbed my shoulder.
"Chris!" The person shouted.
I spun around to find Toki.
"Oh, hey." I said.
"So why weren't you here for first period?" He said glancing back and forth between Ash and I raising an eyebrow.
"My alarm clock didn't go off, and she sleeps like a rock so I always have to wake her up." Ash said.
"Oh, ok." Toki said.
"Hey Toki? Can I talk to you after school?" I asked.
"Sure, I guess so." Toki said with a shrug.
With that I went to my class. It was sooo much longer than usual. It took forever for the bell to ring so I could walk over to Toki's locker. When Toki saw me he walked over.
"So, what did you need to talk about?" Toki asked.
"I know what you are, you're a protector." I said.
"H-how did you know that?" Toki said in shock.
"Because you are my protector." I told him.
"Wait.... Seriously!?" Toki said in disbelief.
I nodded. "That's what my mother said before she died anyway." I said with a shrug.
"This... Is... Gonna be awesome!" He said.
I just nodded as he told me all the fun stuff we could do.
