I woke up in my bed, was yesterday all a dream?
“Hello,” someone interrupted. I only moved my eyes because my neck’s too sore. My mind feels numb, my neck feels broken. Leonidus sat in my open window, wearing a different outifit
“Hey good you see you awake,” Mika appeared in my line of view.
“What happened?” I moaned.
“You must’ve hit your head pretty hard,” Mika laughed, touching my forehead.
“But, we went to the hypnotist,” I said, sitting upright. My back ached like crazy, my tailbone hurts the most.
“Yeah and you fell and hit your head,” Mika said.
“Why’s Leonidus here?” I asked.
“Oh, he carried you home.”
She was beginning to redden. Sweat formed on the line where her hair and forehead meet.
“It’s better if you just come out with it Mika,” I sighed, “tell me, how many?”
“How ma-,” Mika began but was cut off by Leonidus: “Sixteen dead, eleven injured, three severely injured, 322 traumatized.”
“Great,” I cried out, throwing myself back down onto my soft pillow. My sweaty head instantly sank down do the next cushion. I cursed under my breath and pounded my fist on the bed. I winced at the pain of the movement. Mika jumped a little, Leonidus just stared with dark eyes. I sat back up, this time at the edge of my bed.
“Beo, it’s okay, they all probably think it’s a dream,” Mika tried to reassure.
“Leonidus, none of them will turn out like me, will they?” I gasped, almost too afraid to ask.
“No, you can’t turn others, only full bloods can,” Leonidus shrugged.
“Good,” I sighed, “But now they all know about me.”
“I wouldn’t say that,” Leonidus added. Now Mika even looked confused.
“I made the place explode. Making it look like that’s what caused the casualties. The others have been erased of their memories,” Leonidus smirked.
“You made the Glass Majesty explode!” I choked “you could start a war!”
“Yeah, why not? It was a bloody mess anyway,” Leonidus gestured with his broad shoulders, “don’t worry, I told the authorities what had happened. As I was looking out the window of my nearby house, I saw the place explode. A lot of people got out, running and screaming, only few were left inside.”
“Oh god,” I cried, throwing my hands over my eyes.
“Don’t worry Beo, it wasn’t even your fault, not at all,” Mika began crying.
“Oh Mika, I’m so sorry,” I said, scooting closer to her. I pulled her gently into my arms. She burst into more water works on my bare shoulder. She was breathing heavily between each pour of tears. I patted her back lightly. I didn’t mind it, but having Mika so close made me uncomfortable.
“Beo, I let you off earlier,” Leonidus said, breaking our moment.
“What had happened Leonidus, after I left?” Mika asked, now just resting her wet forehead on my shoulder.
“We fought,” Leonidus answered.
“Oh I didn’t hurt you, did I?” I questioned.
“No, just tore my arm off, that’s all.”
“But your arm-.”
“I get scary when need Mr. Wulf. You don’t want to be within my range when I am.”
Leonidus teleported away and the tension in the room were lifted. Mika moved away from me a couple of inches. She had stopped sniffling and wiped the tears away. I looked at her for a while. Mika’s hair was pulled into a ponytail, and she didn’t wear any make up. She had her track outfit and shoes on. Her nails were painted the logos red. The words were beginning to fade, though.
“Track today?” I asked.
“Yup, at four,” Mika sighed. I looked at my new alarm clock; 3:16 p.m.
“Oh, okay,” I nodded.
“Do you think you could come?”
“Probably not, I’m going to tell them Mika.”
“Are you sure, I mean maybe you don’t have to.”
“Mika, you even said so, I have to tell them.”
“Alright, but call me, okay.”
I just nodded and she gave me a hug before departing. I let out a very loud and long sigh then stretched myself out on the bed.
