Apex sounded like he was going to have a heart attack. I stood up quick and walked to the door, thinking that I wouldn't mind too much if he did have a heart attack. If he didn't... I could probably give him one. Or something to the same effect.
I yanked the door open and yelled "GO AWAY!" and force pushed him across the hallway into the wall. His eyes met mine for a moment. They looked... regretful. My mind hesitated, but kept the "Try again and you'll die where you stand" look on my face. Maybe he didn't mea- I took my thoughts back over and slammed the door once more. I walked back over to my bed and laid down, staring at the ceiling.
Who was I kidding? Did I really think that anyone could ever like me? I was a nerd. Always will be. Girls don't fall for my type. That wasn't why I was upset though. I could handle rejection. I had taken it before. It was the fact that I had been lied to. Betrayed. By someone whom I had come to call a friend. If there was one thing I valued, it was loyalty. I thought of myself as a loyal person. I expected other people to reciprocate the action.
I'm too trusting.
There was another knock on the door. "NO ONE SEES THE WIZARD!" I yelled. The Wizard of Oz. Good movie. I closed my eyes and tried to drift off, but the knock came again. I force pushed the door open, and saw Tiamone standing there with a plate of food. I gave a curt nod, used my power to pull the plate inside, and shut the door again. Dinner gently floated across the room and touched down on the desk. Eating was not a priority at the moment. I wanted to be mad, but something inside of me kept throwing question after question at my consciousness.
Was I being childish?
Was Apex really guilty?
Was there more to this than I thought there was?
Was I ever going to get over Lorrie?
Was I ever going to get out of here alive?
My eyelids had just dropped shut when there was another knock at the door.
You have got to be kidding me.
