Friendship,
Impulse,
and heartbreak.

Control is only an illusion.

5. Scene 5

I spent the rest of that day just staying in our room, away from the human race with Fae who practiced her magic until she became too exhausted to continue. Tanya burst into the room, a wide and easy grin accumulated on her face.
“You're in! I got you both into the school!” Tanya shook with excitement and joy.
“That’s fantastic!” I replied, trying to sound as enthusiastic as possible. “When do we start?” 
“Tomorrow. If that’s too early then we can hold it off if you want, I can-”
“It’s perfect!” I exclaimed. I looked at Fae who looked quite uncomfortable, almost like a ghost had just walked through her.  She clutched her stomach. I walked over to her and wrapped a blanket around her shoulders. Zoe barged in and dropped her schoolbag on the floor.
“Mom, is It okay if Aiden comes over, and is it okay if he brings Casper too? There is no one at home tonight and I don’t think they would like to stay in their house all by them self-” Zoe began, I could sense she was going to start ranting, which is probably why her mother stopped her in her tracks.
“Of course Aiden and Casper can come over! Although Aiden is not staying in your room. He may be your boyfriend but I am not tolerating that!” Tanya said firmly, her arms clasped on her waist.
“Good!” Zoe exclaimed, “As they're already here.”
At that moment there was a knocking on the front door downstairs, I could hear whispering in the distance and focused in on what they were saying. Which was nothing but a bunch of mumbling under their breaths from where I was. We clambered down the staircase as Tanya opened the door.
 

“Hello Aiden and Casper, have not seen you guys in ages! Oh please come in.” Tanya welcomed them both in and took their coats hanging them on a hook.
“Babe!” Zoe screamed, running and jumping into Aiden’s arms, kissing him on the cheek.
She climbed off him and lead him into the sitting room, leaving Casper leaning against the door frame.
“Well Hello there.” He said at me, as I passed him into the sitting room. “What’s your name?”
“I’m Dawn, and this is Fae,” I said pointing at myself and Fae who had put herself in the corner, trying to avoid any attention. Fae had always been the shy one, well that is until you get to know her!
“I’m Casper, and that is my brother Aiden, who is younger than me, yet still gets all the girls.”
He complained, standing up and walking over to me.
“You coming.” He said with a wink. Zoe sat on a recliner on top of Aiden and I sat across from Casper and next to Fae.
“This is not at all awkward.” Fae telepathically said to me.
“I know right, they all know each other and we're just here surrounded by awkwardness.” We looked at each other and then at the other three who were chatting away. We'd already become so emerged in this foreign place, that it was almost like someone had cast a spell on them.
“At least we can talk to each other this way.”
“Maybe we should try and talk to each other by actually moving our mouths cause the others might get suspicious,” I concluded.
“Fae you okay?” I asked her out loud, deciding not to mentally speak to each other anymore.
“I’m fine, you excited about school tomorrow?” She asked.
“What school are you both attending?” Casper butted in.
“We are both going to Zoe’s school. We start tomorrow.” I told him.
“What age are you both?” He quizzed us.
“We are both 16, and why is it any of your business.” I snapped back, Fae nudged me and said that I was being a bit rude to him. I intentionally meant to be sarcastic to him, as he was the one being rude.
“Well, I guess we will have the same classes as well then.” He said with a smirk.
Tanya walked in with a tray of appetizers that included a steak tartan which smelt divine. My lips watered as the dish was placed on a table with another few trays of delicacies which I had no interest in. I dived into the steak tartan, devouring the tray within a few minutes. Casper looked at me in awe, Zoe and Aiden laughing. Fae sat next to me eating mini tartlets filled with a creamy onion filling which had a horrible pungent smell, but Fae was enjoying them so they must not be that bad. 
Casper came over and sat down next to me.
“Where are you from?” He asked me.
“America” I replied.
“Oh so your an American? Well I’m British if you can’t tell by my accent.” He chuckled.
“I guess your staying with Zoe then, for how long may I ask?”
“Me and Fae are staying permanently i believe. Tanya, Zoe’s mum, offered for us to come and stay here since we have no where else to go, and no one else we know.” I babbled on. Casper looked engrossed as he hung on my every word, I managed to go without mentioning anything that could potentially uncover mine and Fae’s secret. We talked for hours with Fae occasionally joining in but she was mostly talking to Tanya about school. Time flew past as it was midnight which was supposedly really late. The moon was out again in all its glory as me and Fae headed to our room. We said our Goodnight to the others and headed to bed. I sat in the room, by myself once again, while Fae slept, her long purple hair flowing around her pillow making patterns. My throat was really dry so I decided to go and get a drink from the kitchen downstairs. When I got to the kitchen, I turned the tap on and began filling a glass with water, when I heard footsteps behind me. I turned around with the glass of water in my hand, my red hair flopping in the air, the water drenched Casper from head to toe.
“I am so sorry! I am a bit jumping at the moment!” I exclaimed grabbing a towel from the counter top.
His t-shirt was soaked so he took it off.
“Have some dignity!” I said at him, swiftly turning around to avoid such a sight.
“Do you not enjoy it?” He said laughing. “Be right back.”
He headed up stairs to his room and came back in a purple shirt. 
"Much better," I stated, sipping some of the water from the glass. 
“You think so?” He said with a wink, turning around and heading back upstairs. I made my way through the freezing cold kitchen, the corridor and up the staircase and into my room. Fae was still asleep snoring her head off, drooling all over her pillow. The night seemed endless, as I stood at the window, staring out at the still darkness, a dim light in the distant which appeared to be street lights. 
The house was located on the outskirts of the city, and in the distance was a big building which I understood to be the school which me and Fae were to attend tomorrow. Life had so quickly turned around, that it felt like what I could believe- be a dream.
