Stepping out of the shower drying myself off and looking into the mirror, searching for a scratch or something but nothing. I quickly get dressed and before leaving the bathroom I look at the back of my head and neck looking for a scar or bruise.
knock knock. "Hey, Ed me and some friends are going to a party, Do you want to come with us ? My friend knows someone that likes you." she said swing around the door frame and into the bathroom." Yeah sure i'd love to go, but what about Austin." "No, I told him that i was inviting you and he just said" I would rather die" so yea," she said going from a smile to a sly grin." Oh okay, well that's kinda missed up, but oh well," I say kinda depressed that my brother doesn't want to be my brother.
"Okay well the party starts at 10:30 so i'm going to start getting ready." Jessica or i call her Jess turned around and left to her room. " Hey what time is it now," running after her from the bathroom. "9:15," yelling form her room."Okay well that gives me time."yelling back at her while walking through the hallway from the bathroom to my room.
I was ready in about 15 minutes but Jess on the other hand needed more time." Jess you ready yet, its 9:30. Is everything okay,"yelling from in the middle of the hallway." yea just one sec okay," Jess yelled back at me with anticipation. Standing in the hallway waiting for my sister to come out of her room I decide to go and tell skippy goodnight and that i will be home later. Walking into my room my bed is parallel to the doorway and to the right is a little wooden night stand, along with a good sized dresser with skippy's cage on top.
Skippy jumping on the little wooden stick that's meant for normal earth birds stops and looks at me. "Hey skip me and jess are going to a party and we will be back ok I wont be out to late." talking down to skippy so that he could understand which i knew i really didn't have to. starring into skippy's eyes and I could here something almost like someone telling me not to go.
"Ed you ready,'' Jess says walking in and leaning on the door."Yea I just talking to skippy,"I say happily and standing up."So skippy is special like you Ed,"she says looking over at skippy."Yea he is he can absorb my powers and use them to his advantage," I say turning around and seeing my sister for the first time since shes been ready. "Beautiful,"I say to her. "Ed you have to be kidding i look ugly." she say to me mockingly grabbing her blonde hair and putting it all to one side."I'm serious I think this is the first time I have seen you not in a mini skirt and half t,''smiling at her she just rolls her eyes and says " what ever."
Honk Honk. "That's my friends. You ready?" she says slowly getting up from the leaning position." When you are," walking past her into the hallway then into the large living room and grabbing my keys off the key tree.
Jess and I walk out the door and down the driveway to her friends car. Getting in I see that its Angela, one of Jess's best friends." Hey Ed, You look good tonight, maybe we could get you a girl friend tonight," she say turning around and look at me from the drivers seat." Yea maybe," I say laughing at the remark.
