I grow as Mistle lets Aphrodite in. I shake my head, eyes still closed.

"Aphrodite. I know you want to find your parents as soon as possible but we're not going anywhere tonight. In the morning we will." I say getting annoyed at her thoughts. She sulks. "That's not fair. They are my parents, I want to know how they are! You don't know what's it like not to know your parents! Not to know yourself! You wouldn't know anything about that!" I get off my bed and glare at her.

"How dare you speak to me like that!" I snarl, hands balled. "Guys lets take a deep breath and calm down okay?" I shake my head at Mistle Thaw. "I want to know about myself. You don't understand it Elena so don't pretend you do!" Her eyes are watery. I shake my head. "You don't need your parents to find out who you are. I don't." I say simply.

"You've had years with your parents and lots of happy memories. I don't!" Tears start to fall down her face. "At least you remember your past. At least you have your memories. I dont. I cant remember a thing about my life only a couple of months before I came here. Thats all I remember."

I sit back down on my bed and close my eyes. "Stop feeling sorry for yourself, at least you know who your parents are and you remember your past." I roll on my side away from the girls. I don't like this. I don't like sharing.

"Sorry." Aphrodite mummbles. "Are you okay El?" I turn back to Mistle and nod. I look up at the cieling and sigh. Aphrodite and Mistle start talking again. I black them out. I don't really want to listen to gossip, especially when I hear it all through thoughts first.

Man, my head bloody hurts! Too many minds here. I'm glad I'm going on this quest, it'll give my head a break for a while. I can hear a familar mind. I go over to the door and open it. I smile at Mitchell and pull him into the room. "So how do you feel?" I ask when he sits on my bed. He shrugs. "Okay. No guilt." I nod at him. "Elena about the gover..." "Shh!" I hissed at him signallying to the girls. That's the last thing we want to do.

I go over to the window confused and open it. Someones out there. Some I've heared before but can't place where. 

The End
