Beep Beep, Beep Beep, Be- I sigh as I hit the alarm off the desk aggravated with it. WHY?? I hate Mondays. I throw the covers off of me and walk to the bathroom, turning the shower on. The night before was rough. Calum threw one of his wild parties and I had WAY too much to drink. I brush my teeth and set my clothes out and hop in the shower. I immediately feel the hangover washing away. I've had a special connection to water all my life. I don't know why though. I ask my mum about it sometimes but she always avoids the question and says not to talk about it to anyone. I think it might have something to do with my dad because I've never actually heard of or seen him before. Not even in pictures. It's really weird. Like when I get hurt during my baseball games or practices I take a shower after and my bruises or cuts wash away like it was only dirt. It even works on headaches or stuff like that. I turn the water off and dry myself off. I slip on my boxers, black ripped skinny jeans, Iron Maiden muscle shirt and black Vans.
I grab my school bag and walk down the stairs and notice a note on the fridge that says, "Hey hunny. I already left for work and I wont be back until 9. Don't forget you, Luke, Calum, and Mikey have band practice after school. You are welcome to use the garage. Money for pizza is on the counter. PEASE invite that Rachel girl over and let her stay the night. You know I like her a lot ;) Love you XX
Typical for my mom. Always rushing and is WAY too involved in my love life.
I took out a bowl, milk, and cereal and ate. I went on my bands Youtube channel. Wow. 8 new subscribers. SO impressive...
Just then I thought I heard something crash in the living room. I don't have any siblings and my mom is at work. Who the hell is in my house at 7 fucking 30 in the morning?!? I slowly get up and quietly tiptoe to the family room. Huh. A lamp is on the floor and the window by the stairs is open, and I'm pretty dang sure it wasn't when I came down those stairs. Then I suddenly see something large fly out the window but it was too blury to see because of all the water. Wait what... Water?? I seriously thought i was hallucinating since there was no traces of water on the floor or any where else. I hear Lukes car horn and rush to get my school bag. I lock the front door and sit in the shotgun seat of his car.
"Hey mate. You alright? You look like you just saw a ghost" Luke asks me with concern in his voice. "Yeah just-umm-saw something weird." "What?" he asks. I then remember my mothers words. "If something ever strange or unusual happens and it has to do with the water or sea, don't speak of it to anyone." So like any other person would do, I made something up. "uhh- I found out that we only have 8 more subscribers since our last cover" I said hoping he would buy the most stupid lie ever. Luke relaxes a bit. "Well that does suck." We rode to school with the music blasting. Normaly I would be singing along, but I was just too confused about what just happened.
Once at school I barely take 3 steps and I am tackled with a hug by a red head about 5'4. "I missed you so much Ashton!!!" "I missed you too, Lilly" I said hugging her back. Lilly had been on vacation with her family for 2 or 3 weeks and she is my best friend. We hang out so much that if she wasn't dating that guy,Jake, people would think we were dating.
"uh- Hey Ashton" Emma, Lillys sister, says behind her a little awkwardly. "Hey Emma." I say. "Hiya Luke" she blushes a little. He just smiles and waves at her probably not wanting to talk and sound like a dumbass. His cheeks are bright pink half because it is like 20 degrees outside and half because he likes her so much.
Lilly pulls me over and we just talk about how Luke needs to grow a pair and ask her out already. Its so obvious that they like each other that its sick.
The warning bell rings and we all head to our lockers and go our separate ways. This girl that I like, Rachel, "nervously" walks up to her locker once she sees me. Hers is only 2 away from mine. While I was waiting for her to get her stuff out of her locker, her best friend Sam (btw Sam is a girl not boy) walks up to me and says the weirdest and craziest thing I have ever heard in my dumb, boring life, "I know what you are, don't play dumb. My sister, father, and I will kill you and your so called 'dad' and your powers will finaly be his. Lets see if your little daddy can protect you from Mount Othiris once we're finished with him." She then hissed. Like when I say hissed I don't mean just a creepy sound. I mean a freakin snake toung came out of her mouth and she hissed at me. I just stared at her in shock and like the bright person I am I said, "What?!?" " Don't mind her." Rachel said as she pushed Sam away and pulled me in for a hug and whispered seductively in my ear, "Can I come over tonight? I have something to 'ask' you." She pulls away smirking and lightly blushing. I smile and look at the ground. "Yeah and I think my mum wants to see you again too." "Good" she says. "Bye Ashton. Don't forget!!" she yells back as her "BFF" pulls her towards their first class.
Sure I really like her and im pretty sure she likes me back. Im really excited about what she wants to "ask" me. I smirk at my dirty minded little head as I head to math. In the back of my mind what Sam said really bothered me. I had so many thoughts running through my head.
Who is her sister?
Who is her dad?
Did she say kill? and what does it have to do with my own dad? I've never even met him before!!
What powers was she talking about and what is Mount Othiris?
Before I knew it class was over and the bell rang. I guess I'll find out later. I sigh as I walk out the door and heading to meet my other to moron friends Mikey and Calum.
