Dark and Dangerous

This is my first movella. Just trying to get into writing. Let me know if you like it x :D


29. Beacon.

We must have sat in silence for at least ten minutes just slowly draining mugs of coffee. Shane just adding a few more ingredients every know and then and stirring them in. He finally put the wooden spoon down and came and sat in the seat across from me. I shifted as his foot touched the bruise on my leg. "Yeah, sorry about that," he said. "Had to keep you kind of awake to be able to make sure you weren't going to just suddenly disappear." I straightened my chair up and looked directly at him. "You've been trying to tell me something for a while now and I don't know what could be such a massive secret you can't tell me. Sure what I have is a pain in the ass and I didn't just tell you but the least you could do is just come out with it and have it done." He cocked his head and stared at me like he wasn't expecting something quite so direct. "I don't know if you'd still want to be around me once I tell you," he pleaded. "It would be so much safer for you if you didn't know anything." I stood up and pushed the chair away. "I don't care if I'd be safer. Saffron already showed me what it was like to get you annoyed so I'd rather you'd tell me or these will be freshly crisped." I pulled up my sleeves to show him the white scars covering my arms and jabbed my finger against them. "Next time they may even want to show me what they're capable of and just kill me." I didn't realize how loud I was yelling. The shock washed through me and I felt as if I should sit down and apologize about the whole thing. Not this time, for once in my entire measly life I'd stand my ground. I stared into his eyes and almost melted. The almost impossible green made me feel as though I shouldn't say anything to hurt him. His eyes made him look like a child. A scared kid trying to hide from the monsters. He was shaking slightly and seemed almost like he was going to break down. "Alright," he whispered. "Only if you really have to know."
