9. Chapter 9~ The Light figure.

Eli's (P.O.V.)


My eyes open, greeted with darkness I get up but notice that there's no bed and I'm already standing. So I walk forward and look for the light switch, walking and walking, soon turning to running. I get worried, what's happening! I soon trip on nothing, making me confused. I'm surrounded by darkness, but something taps my shoulder. It's a light. It's blurry but it kind of looks like a figure of a human. Holding out its hand, I take it and being pulled up I feel in the back of my head, the feeling when you obviously shouldn't trust someone but you do anyway. And don't you know it, right as the light pulls me to my feet, I feel a sharp pain in my chest as something has stabbed me. But the pain isn't physical, it's emotional, like my heart is being ripped into pieces. I fall to the ground and see that the figure has a clear smile though its blurry figure. Tears come to my eyes, making my vision fog up. Now the figure comes closer to me still with the clear smile plastered to its face. Its hiding something behind its back. AHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!! Next thing I know I'm in my bed, all sweaty and tears, still fresh coming down my cheek. I hug my chest as I hide back under the covers and cry a little more. Soon falling asleep again.

I wake up and sigh not wanting to go back to school, first of all from yelling at my class, secondly my mind is still thinking of the letter I got from the agent guys back at school, and lastly I still don't know what happened to Nathaniel. Forcing my head up, I'm greeted with a giant headache probably from getting up to fast. After swinging my legs over the side of the bed I stand up and make my way to the bathroom. Before entering though I see my mother passed out on the couch. She must have drunk herself to sleep. No don't get me wrong she's not a drunk, she only does this when she's gets really angry, worried, or has a mix of both. You should have seen her when she got divorced from Jack. Jack is my birth father, but he decided to get a divorce from my mother. I was only ten when this happened so I had to take care of her, making me grow up a little faster than the other kids in my grade. That's why I love my dad, even if he isn't blood related he will always be my dad no matter what. he helped my mother get out of her bump in the rode and we became a family, letting me become a kid again. But at times my adult side will show up and take over when needed. Like now.

I walk over to my mom and pick her up in my arms, she's relatively light. Carrying her up to her room she wakes up, starting to mumble......

"Hey son what nice abs you have........ Why don't you get a girlfriend you would have such cute babies." Still drunk.

"MOM!" She's usually like this when she's drunk.

But I start to blush now realizing I'm not wearing a shirt. As I set her down I close the door and start for the bathroom again, still having about an hour to get ready. I strip down and get into the shower. Turning on the water, letting the cold water shock me awake. After getting dressed I walk to my room and check my phone still with half and hour till I have to leave. I'm shocked but happy to see that Nathaniel has me.

Hi its me Nathaniel.

Just wanting to apologize for not being at school for the past couple of days.

I heard what happened to you and your dad.

I'm sorry I wasn't there to help :(

My mind goes blank, and my cheeks start to get red of the thought of him thinking of me. Also how did he get my number?

Hi, thanks for worrying.

Is all I could think to send. My cheeks are still red and I berry my face into a pillow thinking of how we ended our last date. HE WAS MY FIRST KISS TOO! I never thought that I would have had a enough courage to do that but I did. My phone starts to buzz.

No problem, cant wait to see you in school.


Is all I send. God damn my awkwardness.

I walk down stares and grab my self a piece of bread and put it in the toaster. Then the white piece of paper that my mother had read last night, is pinned to the fridge with a note attached. I quickly grab the pieces of paper and read the note.

Eli I know this is over whelming and you probably don't know what to do, but just know I support you in any way. -Your mother.

P.S. knowing me, when you see this I will probably be drunk. Sorry and just leave for school, don't worry about me.

I sigh my mother has already gone through the pain of losing one husband, now she might lose another. I worry about her but I know she's tough so I do what she says and leave for school.
