Alone in my room, it gave me time to think. I wasn't on my own any more. I put my head in my hands. I had never told anyone that I was different. I mean, my brother had found out, but I never admitted it to him. 

But here it was different. They knew my biggest secret, and it felt like they knew me. Like the only shield I had ever had, had been dropped and I felt bare. What if they told someone? What would I do then? 

They had powers too, though. Surely, they knew how to keep secrets. 

I lay down on my bed. It was getting dark, and it had been a long day. Soon enough I was fast asleep. Not for long though, as halfway through the night, I heard a knock at my door. I got up slowly, and stumbled to the door tiredly. 

"Hi Raph." Callum said. "Sorry for waking you, can I come in?" 

"Sup?" I grunted, letting him pass. He walked over to the window, and glared out. 

"Did you just here something, before?" He asked me. 

"I was asleep, man." He'd woke me up, because he had hear a noise outside? That's it?

"Oh. Sorry." He was still looking out, not really paying attention to me. 

"Callum. Is this urgent or can I go back to-" 

"There!" He said loudly, interrupting me. I walked over to the window, and looked out. This time I had heard the noise. I couldn't see a thing though, it was too dark. 

"What is it?" I asked him, and he just looked at me.
