Kaya: Shaken

I wasn't quite sure what to do after Tristan had left and I'd called Paige.  I wandered silently around the flat with the phone still in one hand and both Tristan and Paige's numbers in the other.  Why had he given it to me?  Was it some sort of signal and I was meant to call him?

I must have typed in his number a hundred times and each time I couldn't find the courage to press dial.  I got so frustrated with myself for being so weak I pressed dial.

'Hello?'  It was his voice on the other end of the line.

'Tristan.  It's Kaya.'

'I thought you would call.'

'What is this all about?'  I couldn't think of anything else to say.  Why had I called him.

'You know what I have Paige here at the moment.'  Oh God he was busy.

'Sorry, I'll speak to you another time.'

'No don't hang up.'  I paused.  'Are you still there?  Kaya?'

'Yeah I'm here.'

'I was about to say you should head over too.  There are some things you need to know.'  He gave me an address not far from where I lived.

'I'll see you in a few.'  I hung up, grabbed my coat and headed out the door.

The End
