"So why did he come?" I asked Trey.

He sighed and for a moment I thought that he wasn't going to answer. "Probably just to make himself known." He muttered, running a hand through his hair. "He usually follows a pattern."

"What do you mean?" I questioned, propping myself up on my elbow.

"Every fucking time we move, either Troy or I fall for someone. I swear, it's a fucking circle of death." I winced at his words and he threw me an apologetic look. I don't think I'll ever get over looking into those Caribbean blue eyes. "I've only fallen in love with one other girl, four years ago. Troy somehow manages to find one in every place that we move to, whether it be a girlfriend or just a best friend." I tried to ignore the fact that he just admitted he'd fallen for me.

"What happened?"

"Well, first we move, then we have a few months of peace. Eventually, one of us finds someone to care for, whether we admit it or not, we're human too. A month or two with that person and they tell us that they're being stalked. Pictures, flashes, nanny cams, you name it, the fucker is insane." He scowled, running his hand through his hair once more.

"Then, he just pops up out of nowhere. I don't know how he finds us, but the little shit does. When he does, it usually happens a week after." He went quiet and I waited for him to finish.

"What does? What happens?" I demanded, sitting up straight. His bed dipped and I fell backwards, hitting my head on the carpet. I groaned and Trey looked over worriedly. I looked at him and urged him to continue, getting up and ignoring my throbbing head.

"He-uh-he takes them." Trey told me, rubbing his eyes, clearly tired from lack of sleep.


oorknob and opened the door.

I heard a gasp and I saw Amy with her jaw dropped. The girls swooned to my disbelief. I thought that everyone would find the scars on my face revolting.

The guys looked at me with interest and I nearly laughed at their sudden change of behaviour towards me.

It's not like anyone has been interested in me before. Except for Amy.

I looked back at her and still found her to be catching flies in her mouth.

"New student?" The teacher asked me. That time, I laughed.

"Trey Hollands?" I reminded him, running a hand through my hair. I felt a sudden burst of confidence from all the positive attention and I was loving it.

I'd forgotten what it felt like to not wear that damn hood.

"The kid with the hood?" He questioned, looking astonished.

"Mhm." I hummed, taking my usual seat where behind Amy. The project was over so she didn't have to sit there any more, but I guess she wanted to. Girls reached for my arms, but I pulled back, almost as if they'd burnt me. Amy looked up at me with amazement as I sat down.

She beamed at me and I returned her smile.

Hahaha, good memes.
