The Star Thief

My hands shook as I rubbed my fingers over the old, rusty key. I slowly held it eye level, inspecting it. I saw a glimmer, and a magnetic pull started yanking me towards the door in the corner. I was going faster, faster, until I was hurtling towards it, jogging, running - and then I stopped long enough to throw the key in the door and twist. The world shimmered, a bright white glow, spinning, spinning, spinning, and then - I stood in a place I only knew as 8D.

2. Chapter 2

I blinked. And then I blinked again. I rubbed my eyes.

It's just your sleepy eyes. They're just tricking you.

I rubbed my eyes again and looked out the window, my eyes wide. It still wasn't in sight. Frustrated that my brain would trick me like that, I fell back on the ground. I ran my fingers through my hair and gulped, trying not to freak out.

This is worse than the time Lilla got me drunk and I went blind for an hour.

I heard footsteps approaching and threw myself into my "bed", trying to look like I was having trouble cooling myself off rather than like I made a star disappear and jumped into bed so I wouldn't get caught.

My eyes closed the second before she opened the door. Light tried to come through my eyelids, and I pretended to wake up.

"Mmmm, Mum, what do you waaaannnnttttt?" I mumbled.

"Oh sweetie. I just uhm, wanted to say... I'm sorry for yelling at you. I just don't want anyone to know..."

I nodded. "Of course. I know. Conceal the weapon," I joked. My Mum smiled, but only with her mouth. Her eyes looked... Almost... Loving. She stepped onto the fuzzy carpet we had spread on the floor when I was 7. I remember yelling at her: "Mum, I don't like blue! You always do everything wrong!" I suddenly felt a wave of guiltiness sweep over me as she wrapped her arms around my flat, small, poor excuse of a body.

"Mum, I love you."

She looked deep into my eyes, searching for who knows what. Secrets, maybe.

"I love you too. But, you need to get some sleep. It's after three-o'-clock." I nodded as she pulled my blankets up around me properly and kissed my forehead. "Good night," she whispered.

"Good night."
