It had been about three week since the party. And the demon was just getting stronger. The nightmares were becoming more frequent and I also started seeing it at school. During classes the first time I screamed and I was sent to the Headmaster. I sat in his office and cried, I didn't tell him or Alex what I had seen.
I was walking out of class and down the hallway when Peta attack me again. "Sup whore?" He ask pointing his fat nose to the sky, I didn't answer I just took a step forward in the direction I was going and he hit me in the side of the head, I stumbled and feel over dropping my books, he and his friends laughed and went to walk away when I stood up, "This time I'm ready!" I barked at them, Peta turned around I stood in a ready position my left leg back, knees bent and fist in the same position. Peta looked around with a smirk on his fat ugly face, a group of people had circled us, "Lady's first take a hit!" I said to him and he did what I said and missed me, I then hit him in the stomach and kicked him in the head a teacher came out and yelled at us to stop fighting, I moved out of my stance and wiped the blood from my lip picked up my books and walked away.
I went back to the apartment and walk straight to the bathroom totally ignoring Alex, he came into the bathroom and I was sitting on the floor again shaking, he grabbed me and pulled me close. "Please let me end it now! I can't handle it anymore!" I cried to Alex he held me tightly "I'm going to help you! You won't have to end it! I won't let you!" Alex said to me as he held me tightly. I could feel his anger and hate ruing through him. "I pounced the fuck out of Peta." I said to Alex and he hugged me tightly.
That night Alex took me to the Headmaster, "Why are we here..." I asked him looking around the headmasters office, Alex looked at me with worried eyes, "I want you to tell him about the demon, he might be able to help you find away to deal with and or stop it." Alex put his hands on my shoulders and I hung my head. "You don't understand..." I said softly and Alex looked at me, "What don't I understand?" He asked softly and I shook my head and put my hands on his. The headmaster walked in all serious and sat down at his desk, I turned to look at him, he didn't move just sat there watching me, I looked back at Alex and he gave me a look that said everything was going to be ok, "I won't leave." He whispered to me. I went and sat down in front of the headmasters desk.
I couldn't do it. I could speak about it. I wiped my eyes and stood up and walked to the door. "Kate?" Alex called after me, "Go after her!" The Headmaster told Alex. I walked fast down to the grounds of the school. Salty tears on my face felt like ice in the cooling winter air. "Kate!!" Alex shouted after me, I kept walking faster and faster. The faster I ran the more I could feel my heartbreaking, I couldn't stop the tears and I sat down against the wall of the building and cried. "Kate!?Katie!" Alex called out in the night, I sobbed in the corner. Alex was close I could hear his foot steps on the concert, "Katie..." He whispered seeing my feet from behind the building. He slowly walked closer and sat down beside me pulling me into an embrace. "Isn't it enough I told you? I don't want to talk about it the more I do the more he scars me." I sobbed as Alex held me tightly "I'm so sorry Katie. I should've asked if you wanted to tell the headmaster. I'm just so afraid. I don't know how to protect you." He kissed my head and held me even tighter. I hugged him back and cried. Alex didn't more or say anything more. He just hugged me. The taste of salty tears brought back memories. Ones I never wanted to remember.
