Alright so, this was a really hard chapter to write. I spent hours writing and rewriting and deleting and adding and I only make each chapter a couple hundred words over a thousand so please enjoy. And if some words seem weird it's because of autocorrect because I don't have a computer so I have to type on my phone. If I see mistakes I'll try to fix them:)
"Aren't you hot in that?"
That was the first words she spoke to me. I was so fixed on the setting sun, she startled me. She had long curly brown hair and the the brightest blue eyes I'd ever seen.
"No I-I'm fine." I said awkwardly.
I tried to go back to enjoying the sun, wishing I could fly to it. Peeking over the surface of the water, just begging me to come towards it. My wings were happy to oblige. However, this peace here would have to suffice, but the aching of inticipation always crept through them. I was due back to my father's lab for more tests. He says he can find a cure for me so maybe I could be normal and maybe find a girl like the one who decided to not leave me alone.
"Alright, but if you get a heat stroke, I'll let you know now, I have no idea what to do." She giggled." but seriously, that coat and this heat don't mix. Thirsty?"
"U-uh n-no I'm fine." I repeated kind of annoyed but I tried to be polite.
"What's your name?"
"Look, I'm sorry I really don't want to talk right now, ok?" I said." So just please go away."
"Do you know why I came and talked to you?" She asked gently, ignoring my outburst." Because you looked lonely, and sad. Thought I might cheer you up." with that she silently walked away.
"Hey, I'm sorry." I said and she stopped." My name is Warren. What's yours?"
"Rose." she smiled." So, why the coat? If, I may ask."/ "I- just. Um." I stumbled for an excuse.
"Woah!" she cautioned." dont blow a gasket. You don't have to tell me." She paused for a minute." Can I atleast...know why your sad?"
"I'm not sad." he replied." I just..."I took a breath." In a week I have to lose something, I have to change."
"You don't seem too happy about it either."
"yea well, I have no choice."
I felt something in my hand. I looked down to see her hand grasping mine. I looked up at her to see her eyes staring into mine.
"There is always a choice, Warren."
My cellphone rang and I knew it was father calling to tell me it was time for the last test before he could try the newly developing supposably mutant cure. I turned away, excusing myself to speak to him, noticing she let go of my hand.
"I'm sorry, Rose. I have to " I turned back to her to see she had disappeared."..go."
I sighed and started walking back to the road towards the car.
At The Lab...
"All of your systems are still fully functional." the woman told me.
"What does that mean?" I asked.
"It means, your ready for the cure. As we stated earlier, you will have to be given atleast one week for the tests to wear off so it does not disrupt your transformation. You will be the first to expirence this great discovery." She marveled.
One week untill I had to give up my wings and be normal.
There is always a choice, Warren.
Rose's words replayed in my mind as I walked back to the car and went home. Something kept making me want to go back tommorrow. So I will.
i know this is a short chapter. The others will be longer. I just wanted to give y'all a little feel of it. There will be at least 7 chapters, one chapter= 1 day. Until it gets to the last big fight on Alcatraz. Please review or alert:) thank you.
