Excerpt-Static

I was about to smile but she kneed me right where a man should never be hit. I fell to the floor again, but this time gripping my manhood. I winced and noticed Chris had Ryan’s mother sitting on the chair next to the man he’d been fighting. He had them hypnotized.
“Chris,” I called in between breaths.
As he walked toward me, we both stared at Ryan as she pulled out a few strands of my hair. It was so fast I didn’t have time to react. I just grabbed Chris and teleported to the car.
“You okay, bro?” he asked after we’d been driving for a few minutes.
I was still holding on to my groin. “Not really. She’s a witch, that one!”
He shook his head. “She saved your life.”
“And I saved hers. We’ve formed some bad habits.”
“You think that’s it?” Chris asked.
“I don’t know. Yes. What is she planning with Gabby? And what the hell does she want with my hair?”
“Gabby? That’s probably to make Dr. Ryder do what they want. Your hair? I don’t know . . . because she’s obsessed with you? Man, this is all kind of messed up.” He turned to look at me. “Is that a tear?”
“I think I’m gonna lose my balls!”
“Hang on,” Chris said, pulling over to a 7-Eleven. He went in and came back with a bag. “Here.”
“What is this?” I asked as I opened the bag. “Ice. Yeah, thanks. We probably should never talk about this again, dude,” I said, placing the bag on my crotch.
“What? That I bought ice for your balls?” Chris laughed, and then cleared his throat. “Yes, let’s just—we’ll keep that to ourselves. I’m not even sure it will help. The way I see it, it’s better to be numb than in pain.”
“She was vicious with that knee, though,” I said.
“I saw her. She concentrated just like you taught her. So really, you should be proud of yourself. The more it hurts the more you know your training with her was perfect.” Chris choked back a laugh.
“Keep that up, everyone will know you tended to me.”
His eyes widened. “Nah, that’s okay. We’re good.”

I spent the whole night reading all the files that Samantha had given to me, and I couldn’t find anything new. The next day, I was so tired that I left Kevin playing video games and went to take a nap in the middle of the day. In my exhausted state, I smiled, remembering the old Nick.

“Why are you crying?”

“I’m not. I don’t cry,” I said, sniffling.

“Okay, well… here, take this,” he said, taking off his sweater while standing in the cold in his white T-shirt. “Your face is wet for some reason,” he smiled.

“I don’t need that.”

“You have mascara running down your cheeks. Come here,” he said, and wiped my face with his sweater. He was so gentle and caring and nice that my tears betrayed me and poured down my face, embarrassingly. He held me with my head against his hard chest for a long while.

“Oh, my God, why can’t I stop crying?”

“Don’t worry about it, let it out. I’ll hold you.”

I pulled away. “No, you don’t have to. I’m fine. Thanks.”

“So you punched her. You’ll be all right.”

“No, they’re going to kick me out for not controlling my anger!” I squeaked.

“I won't let it happen, Annie, I promise.”

I laughed. “What could you possibly do?”

“I’ll stand up as a witness. Lisa was pushing Beth around, and you stood up for your friend. Loyalty counts for Luminaries, you know.”

“Right,” I smiled. Now, looking at him, I couldn’t believe I had cried in his arms. “Why are you so nice to me all the time?”

“I like you.”

“Ha! Don’t you go thinking you’re adding me to your list of girls here.”

“You’ve been training with me long enough to know I’ve stopped all that,” he said, pushing my hair behind my ears.

“So?”

“So, you and I will happen. My kisses fix everything, by the way, so if you want to come closer I can—”

“Stop it, Nick. Not happening.”

He touched the tip of my nose. “Not today, maybe.”

“Not ever,” I said, still feeling the memory of his arms around me.

“Annie?”

“Yes?”

“I’m going to kiss you one day, I hope you know this.”
