6. The Darkness Takes Hold
"It's for her own good Alex! I know you think you can protect her but you can't! You have no idea what she'll do! They will keep her safe!" The headmaster slammed his hands down on the desk as he argued with Alex, "You don't know what's best for her! She'll never forgive me or you if you let them take her! She's safer with me! I can protect her! She will runway! She'll find away out of there! She's not mental! She needs help yes but that doesn't mean she needs to be locked away! Rose and I are the only ones that she tells things to! She trust us! She's finally coming out of her shell and your going to lock her away! You're a fucking asshole! Have you even told her!" Alex shouted back, I could hear them from the living room, I pulled my legs up and hugged them tightly, the officers from a couple of days ago where back but this time they brought a woman with them. We sat in silence as Alex and the headmaster fought about was going to happen. I moved to the window seal and they all got on edge, "Careful what you do, cause God is watching your every more..." I sung Misa Misa's song to myself as I looked out over the busy street of this tiny suburb on the edge of Sydney. They were all watching me, I kept singing, then I got up and started playing the piano in the corner of the room, I was only doing what the Demon asked but to them it looked like I was destructing my self, I started to play another song from the same series 'Death Note.' It was what the demon asked for so I played it.
Alex stood at the archway into the living room leaning against the wall, the headmaster walked in they both glared at each other. The headmaster looked at me, "Kate can you go pack your things please." He asked as he sat down with the other adults, I stopped playing. Slowly closed the lid and got up with out making I contact with any of them I walked to my room Alex followed me, "Roof now.." Alex whispered in my ear I stopped and started to cry Alex turned me around and hugged me he never cried but he did this time. We stood in the hallway hugging for ages, then the headmaster came to see what was happening he put his hand on Alex's shoulder and Alex not looking up from me or letting go said, "If you want her stuff packed you can go do it! This is going to bed the only time I can hold her for a long time! JUST LEAVE US BE!" I started to cry more when he shouted I was already afraid as it was.
The police officer had to have the headmaster lock Alex in the the house so he would try and grab me or make me want to not get in the car. As soon as I got in the car and we left the school my unstoppable tears stopped. The one reason I was true lye happy was taken away from me. I became the A Team girl again. I am no longer special. I no longer matter. In just another pawn in this game.
