Dark and Dangerous

11. Drifter.

I stretched and ran my fingers up my arms. Damn it, what happened? Oh yeah, the girls. I opened my eyes and stared up at the ceiling. I was in my room. The pale pink from when I was twelve, when my mum left. For the first few weeks my aunt stayed with me but she moved on. I guess that's what happens in my family. They move on. I rolled over and stared around. Just one thing seemed to be different, Shane was sat in my armchair. Was he sleeping? Well, he had his head in his arms and was hunched over. But I think he was muttering, I couldn't hear. "Morning," I whispered. He sat bolt upright and stared at me. "You're alright?" He asked cautiously. I looked around frantically. Did I fade away last night? I nodded at him slowly. "I know your secret, it's safe with me." I felt dizzy and light. He knew everything. I looked straight into his eyes and he didn't look scared or nervous, he just looked strong. Strong. About what? I built up my courage and started to talk,"Have you told anybody?" He shook his head. "Good," I spat. "Don't." He looked a little bit hurt and maybe he regretted saving me. "Thanks for finding me." He looked like he was about to say something. Something that needed to be said but he held it back. "What were you doing way out there to be able to find me?" He looked flustered, like he was trying to find an excuse. He quickly pulled an ice pack off the floor and handed it to me. I was confused for a second until he pointed at my arm. It was blistered and looked like blackened meat. I winced at it. "You're not the only one with a secret," he whispered.
