5. the glimpse

                                                          The rest of the school day dragged on at a snail's pace. It seemed as if the clock had intentionally slowed it's self down so that Nic's hours torture were stretched out. All the birthday songs and the ineatable B-day cookie that the lunch ladies gave her was enough to send her over the edge. At least in dodge ball.

                                                     The green ball was flung from a naïve seventh grader that didn't realize what he just started. The green ball hit Nic squarely in the face making her see little birdies in the sky. She groaned and rubbed her face, snickers floated in the air. Nic mentally growled at them. She strangled her gym shirt as she went into the humiliation line. Or the waiting line.

                                                      Then a red ball rolled harmlessly by only to be snatched by Nic's angry hand. Bounced it a few times then casually tossed it in the air.... to hit the coach's head. Then chaos followed and Nic was pretty proud of herself. It was a distraction from her birthday.  Soon P.E ended in a mass of confusion and mystery.

                                               Since P.E was the last period she got cleaned up and sat on the cement planter like she always did. This time there was no paper to read so she searched the sea of heads for Roxane. She sighed when she only saw Carson. It wasn't that he was bad or anything like that. He was just not Roxane. And right now she really needed Roxane.

                                                " Roxane told me that you wanted me to walk you home today and also to say that she is getting picked up,'' Carson's vivid green eyes spelled out nothing but, sincerity. Nic ran her hand through her hair,'' Ok Carson. Thanks I just really don't want to walk home alone right now,'' Nic got up and started walking.

                                                       Carson stubbornly tried to keep up the conversation,

" Thanks for saying yes,''

" Oh what? Oh yeah your welcome,''

" Happy birthday Nic,''

" Please, I don't want to hear the sentence ever again!''

" Why?''

" It's just cause.....''

                                                    Nic trailed off. In the corner of her eye she saw a figure with light brown hair and then she heard the scream. It sounded much like Flynn's scream. Could it be. No... not after all these years. The figure and scream had come from the creek. A strange bolt of energy and insanity came over Nic. She swung herself up and over the guard rail and landed on the soft sand bed of the creek. Then she took off after the figure.

                                                          "NIC,'' Carson yelled dropping his backpack and took off down the path that lead to the creek. " What scared her so bad?'' he told himself quietly.
