It’s dark and I can barely move, but I’m not scared because I know exactly where I am at. I am in my coffin; I know how cliché. But I only have one to keep out all of the lights in my ‘room’, not because I’m part vampire. When I push the lid open my eyes are assaulted by the lights, but I’m use to them so my eyes adjust rather quickly. I sit up and turn my head to the left seeing exactly who I knew was there.
“Hey Trident.” I grumble while rubbing my eyes.
“Yo Wolf. What are you doing up so early it’s only,” he turns to his computer monitor to check the time. “Eight forty-four.”
I climb out of my coffin and stretch my arms and legs. “I know but we have a mission tonight. Where are the others?” Trident stares at me blankly for a moment. “What is it now?”
“Nothing it’s just, I’m surprised you woke up by yourself and remembered about the mission, is all. The others are in the kitchen eating brinner.” Brinner is something Trident made up since our schedule is backwards.
“Okay, I’m going to go grab a bite than suit up. What about you, did you eat anything yet?” I ask while stifling a yawn. By the way he’s rubbing the back of his head and giggling, I can already tell what the answer is.
“Well you see, I was going to but I was side tracked by this new game I just got.” He begins to fidget and avoids eye contact as I stare and him for what seems like hours.
“Trident, how many times have I told you that you need to eat?” I say very calmly. This is an intimidation technique I learned a few years back.
“Well at least fifty.” He squeaks out. He and I both know that if it was left up to him, he wouldn’t eat for a month straight.
“So why is it that I am repeating myself to you again?” I aksed in the same calm voice while I closed in on him.
“Ummmm…” just then the others came in from brinner.
“Well, well ,well. It looks like Wolf woke up before you could get away.” Remarked Marshal with on of those ‘I told you so’ tones.
“Honestly when are you ging to learn that you can’t hide anything from her?” questioned Jasper in a bored sort of way.
“Shut up both of you.” Trident yelled at them, hurtung my ears. “It’s not like I was going to hide from her.” In a quiet voice he mumbled, “Besides she’d find me in ten seconds anyways.”
I hit him in the back of the head and asked, “What was that fish lips?”
“Nothing, nothing at all.” He answered while shaking his head rapidly back and forth. The others are all laughing at him because this is not the first time we have had this argument, and I doutb it’ll be the last.
“Just go eat something. I can’t have you passing out on the job now can I?” I sigh as Trident runs from the room at top speed. I follow to get myself something to eat than to suit up for our important mission.
