The water was always her first love. Fire was her enemy. But united, what is the consequence? Will she burn and will he drown...


12. Talking


"Kya, stop." That firm voice said into my ear. I wanted to turn to face Marcus but I could not let Tina get away with that. A growl followed by a sharp shove sent me reeling into Marcus's arms. Looking up, I saw Lee towering above me. Tina had a satisfied smirk on her face and I wanted to punch it off. I fought against the firm grip Marcus had on me. Lee led Tina away towards the crowds. Oh no you don't. Shoving Marcus away, I leapt up and forced Tina away from Lee. I continued to punch her face and her lip started to bleed and her perfect nose job was now broken. The crowd scattered and mumbles of anxious conversations could be heard. I rested my back against the wall and cradled my back against the wall and started sobbing. Tina could not get away with saying those things. Dan's face entered my thoughts and my vision became black. I felt arms around me and took in the scent of honeysuckle. I hadn't even known him for one day and already his touch felt familiar and I wanted to curl up into his arms. I lifted my head and found my self staring back at Marcus. There was no one around. Good. I got to my feet and wiped any dirt I had on me off. Marcus looked at me with pity in his eyes. Great, now I was already a charity case. I looked around for our bus but it had left. Without saying a word to him I walked away. Hearing footsteps behind me, I groaned under my breath. He caught up with me. We walked in silence for a couple of minutes.

"You don't have to babysit me you know!" I snapped at him. Marcus didn't say anything for a minute.

"I know. But someone has to look out for you." He said quietly. Now it was my turn to be silent. I felt his arm brush mine and my body yearned for physical contact. He suddenly grabbed my arm and I glared at him. He had no right to do this. I was about to protest when Marcus dragged suddenly to the right.

"Where are we going?!!" I squealed. 

"Somewhere." He said bluntly, as if that offered all the answers in the world. I stopped dead. Some call it stubborn, I call it sensible.

"No. I refuse to go with you. I hardly know you and now you are dragging me through the streets like a maniac? I refuse to go with you!!" I screamed at him. I wanted home. My pillow and my dreams. Where I could be with Dan again. Today had sucked and I just wanted to end.

Remorse filled Marcus's eyes as I said this. "Look, I am so sorry Kya. I forgot that today was not easy for you. And I would like to get to know you more. Maybe you might even consider me a friend..." He trailed off as if lost for words. I liked this guy and that was bad.

"You still didn't answer my question. Where are we going?" I asked pointedly.

"To where the real fun happens." He smiled then and just seeing him smile made me also smile. It made me feel lighter. Just as suddenly as he had before, he grabbed my hand this time and we took of down the streets.
