Ok, so I’m not normal, but how many teens do you hear say that? Well I don’t like counting so let’s say a lot.
“Chris!” My friend Ash said interrupting my thoughts.
“Yes?” I asked.
“You were in dream land again.” He said smirking. I shrugged.
“So what? Not like it matters...” I said as I smacked into a boy.
“Sorry.” I muttered taking Ash’s hand to sturdy myself.
“Why do you have an eye patch?” The boy asked. I scowled.
“My eye got stabbed in an accident, ignore it.” I growled. Ash took my arm and led me opposite of the boy. I hated my eye! Hated it! Why did I have to have two different eye colors!? Ash is the only one who knew.
Ash led me to his house and opened the door.
“My bro’s not home today, so we get the TV.” Ash said leading me into the living room. I grinned.
“Anime time!” I said grabbing the DVD case and opening it.
Ash lay down on the couch as I put the disk in. After I hit play I laid down with Ash on the couch. He put his arms around me and his chin on my head. It was so comfy. Just like always. I closed my eyes for a second in peace. Ash is my childhood friend. We have been best friends since we were born. We’ve always been close. That’s why Ash knows about my eyes. The power they hold… Ash took off my eye patch and laid it on the coffee table.
He knew I was more comfortable with my eye uncovered. I smiled and the show started. We watched together just like that. Soon in Ash’s safe arms I fell asleep. When I next awoke, Ash’s arms were still around me. I looked up to see him looking down at me. There was a knock at the door so I stood with Ash following, putting my eye patch on me. I opened the door and was greeted by the boy from the hallway. I felt Ash put his arms across his chest behind me.
“Why are you here?” I asked.
The boy glanced at Ash and then back at me.
“Is he your brother?” He asked. I shook my head.
“Cousin?” I shook my head again.
“Boyfriend?” He asked but this time Ash answered.
“What is it to you anyway!?” he asked in annoyance.
The boy blinked and then shrugged.
“Just wanted to know. Anyway I’m here to say hello to all the new neighbors.” He said with a smile.
“You’re my neighbor!?” Ash asked.
“So this is your house? I was wondering which one of you two lived here.” The boys said.
“I’m here more than I am at home.” I said.
The boy looked shocked.
“How come?” He asked. I swallowed hard.
“Just to hang with Ash.” I answered.
“Oh, I forgot to introduce myself! I’m Toki.” The boy, Toki said.
“I’m Christina, but everyone calls me Chris and this is Ash.” I said.
The boy nodded. “Well, I’ll be seeing you in school.” Toki said as he left.
I shut the door and turned to see a guy in the living room. I yelped and hugged Ash. Ash looked unfazed and groaned.
“Bro quick making surprise entrances like that! You’ll scare Chris to death one of these days!” Ash griped.
I took a deep breath. "How the heck do you always do that?" I asked.
Ash's brother, Izaya looked away.
"I'm just sneaky.." He muttered as he walked into his room.
Could it be that my friends have been hiding something from me after all this time?
