Distrust.

Everett

Aiden let out a sigh, when we all agreed to help. I was reluctant - I didn't trust this guy, not yet. The way Trinity had changed from the bubbly, talkative teen this morning to the quiet and tired girl she was now was unnerving. Grace acted so sure of herself all the time, but I knew how much something like this could take it's toll on her. She was just as insecure as the next girl and I didn't want her to lose herself in this madness. 

Everyone retired to bed after the discussion. Ethan agreed to letting Aiden kip on the couch which I wasn't happy about. We didn't know him and he wasn't like us. I mean, I know were not exactly the most normal of people with our powers and all, but he was more than that. 

Ethan lead the others upstairs to show them were they could bunk for the night, but I stayed downstairs to watch over the stranger. Too many things had happened today for me to trust him or anything else that happened. I wanted at least one pair of eyes on him. 

"Mind if I join you?" I asked him, sitting down on the seat furthest away from him. I didn't wait for an answer. I had more right than him to be here. He nodded his head, keeping his stare directed my way.

"I understand why you don't trust me." He said after a few minutes of silence. I laughed, shaking my head. He had no idea. 

"Tell me, do you have any sisters or brothers?" I asked him. He didn't say anything, but he didn't break his eye contact either. I smirked. "Then you have no idea." 

He smiled at me. 

"Mind if I lay down, It's been a long day and I'm about to drop." He said, laying his head on the pillow. He was out within seconds. I watched him for about half an hour, then got bored.

Upstairs, I bumped into Rishon. He was just leaving the bathroom as I reached the top stair and when he saw me he jumped in horror. I laughed as he bent over to catch his breath.

"God, you scared me so much then!" He gasped. He laughed, and next minute we were both in hysterics. Clearly today had made us mad.

"The others all in bed?" I asked, as the laughter had worn off.

He nodded. "Everyone went out pretty much straight away. It's been a long day."

"You can say that again." I muttered, shaking my head.

Who knew what tomorrow would bring. I hoped Aiden was going to prepare us first, without taking us in straight away.  

The End
