9A Chapter by ♥ Courtney ♥
We sat there in silence for a while, then finally when I could bear it no more, I poured out my unspoken questions.
"So... do you have any powers?" I asked
"Well, we read minds, we're extremely fast-" Matt started
"How fast?" I asked
"Lets just put it this way, we are invisible when we run...that’s how fast we are” Kyle said
"We have a few other powers too, but they're complicated" Tyson said
"Like what?" I said intrigued "Can you like fly or something" I smiled with playful amusement.
"No, we can't fly" Tyson said with a smile
"We can shimmer?" Matt offered
"Shimmer? That sounds so...not scary" I laughed
"Its a way of moving from one place to another in an instant. We rarely do it, shimmers can be tracked. So we mostly run" Kyle said
"Tracked? By who?" I said confused
"By-" Matt started
"We also can see extremely far and have excellent hearing” Kyle cut in
“Up to 2 miles away" Matt added proudly.
"Oh and we don’t sleep" Tyson said
"You don’t sleep?" I asked
"Sleep is where the brain reboots and works through the problems in the systems...physically and mentally ...it processes stress and sicknesses...since were basically dead we don’t need to sleep so, naturally, we can’t." Tyson said
"Wow" I said. “So it’s sort of like, use it or lose it” I laughed a little.
Tyson nodded. I heard footsteps on the front porch and I heard my mom on her cell.
"Should we be here?" Tyson asked
I shook my head no frantically.
"I can’t have people in the house!" I whispered
The lock turned and my mom walked in the door. I froze
"Mom I can explai-" I started
"Hey honey" she kissed my cheek
"No James the McClearen house hasn’t been sold yet” she continued into her phone as she walked into the kitchen.
I turned around to face the boys but they were gone. I didn’t even see or hear them leave.
"Tyson? Kyle? Matt?" I whispered.
I heard a low giggle then it was silent. I shook my head and I walked upstairs. I walked into my room to find Tyson on my bed, Kyle at my desk messing with my makeup ,and Matt looking through my CD's.
"What the-" I started
"Shhh" they all said in unison
"How’d you get up here?" I whispered
"I told you we were fast" Tyson laughed
He motioned me to join him on the bed and I sat next to him. Matt turned on the stereo.
"So we can talk without being heard" Matt said gesturing to the stereo.
I smiled. Kyle was brushing his teeth with an eyebrow brush.
"What is this" he said
I took it from him laughing.
"Its for your eyebrows" I said as I brushed his eyebrows
"Oh gotcha" he laughed and I went back to the bed with Tyson. Kyle came and sat down next to me and Tyson and Matt sat on the floor in front of me.
"Lexie...I’m sorry for scaring you the other night" Kyle said.
We all looked at him confused. He didn’t pay any attention his brothers stares.
"Huh?" I said
"Well you see the day I met you I knew you were different. I knew you were special. I heard your thoughts and could tell that you thought I was good looking but I needed to know more. The problem was I truly didn’t know how you felt about me...anyways I had to see you. I was lying in my room and I couldn’t take it so I went to your house. Your window was unlocked so I sat on your floor and listened to you sleep. You started to stir in your sleep, I thought you might be waking up so I tried to hide by your lamp but I knocked it over and you really did wake up so I shot out the window forgetting to close it. Then I saw that you were scared but I figured if I told you it was me you would be more scared." Kyle said looking down.
His brothers glared at him
"So it was you" I said
"Yeah " he hung his head.
"Kyle” Tyson muttered
Kyle whispered something in audible and his lips moved so fast I couldn’t see what he was saying. Tyson glared still and Matt seemed to be listening. Tyson growled something under his breath and Kyle seemed to be trying not to lose his cool. Matt jumped in and it seemed like a silent fight. I stood up being careful not to think what I was feeling. Then I thought clearly.
'I have to go to dinner, I’ll be back in a little bit' I knew they would hear me
I sighed as I walked down stairs. My mom and dad were at the dinner table and I dished my plate. I sat down and pushed the lasagna around on my plate. I thought about the fight that was going on about me upstairs.
"Whats wrong?" My mom asked
"Nothing" I said.
I ate and washed my dish in the sink. I walked back upstairs and came in to see Kyle looking at my CD's, Matt messing with my books and Tyson still sitting on my bed. He looked up when I came into the room.
"We’ve decided to behave" he said smiling
His melodious voice made me want to melt. I walked to the bed and Kyle joined me.
'God he looks hot' I thought then blushed crimson remembering he could hear me. He smiled
"Same to you" he said and I laughed.
"We have to go" Tyson stood up
I hugged them all goodbye and they left through my window. I put on my PJ's and laid in bed. About a half hour I heard a rustling outside my window. I opened it and looked out, nothing but black surrounded me. I turned around shaking my head and walked to the bathroom to get a drink of water. My mom had left to go back to work and my dad was asleep so the house was silent. I walked back into my room with my glass of water. When I shut the door I felt a hand go over my mouth.
"Shhh its ok its me" I spun around to see Kyle standing there in sweats and a tee shirt. He looked like a male model.
"You scared me!!" I hissed
"I knew you'd scream" he said.
He had a point. I sat on my bed and he sat with me.
"Why are you here'' I asked
"What else do I have to do?" he asked
"Good point" I said
He laid down next to me and wrapped his arms around my waist. I fell asleep in his arms. That night I dreamt of Kyle.
