"Are you okay?" I ask Mike, looking at his beaten up face.
He nods and tries to smile. "I'm good, how are you? Seems like you get in trouble a lot."
I look to the floor, I know he's joking but he's right. I am getting in trouble a lot.
"I'm fine." I mutter and walk off to help Jade with the coffees. She smiles at me as I walk into the room. "Thanks for helping me."
"What are friends for?" Jade says with a smile. I smile back weakly.
Jade smile fades a little. "I don't know. She wasn't there when we left the house."
I nod and smile, Jade looks at me confused.
"She doesn't stay in the same place long. She never tells me when she's going to leave but I do see her again. After a while." I start to stur sugar into my coffee.
"You two close?"
I shrug. "I don't really get close to people and Ami doesn't either, she prefers it that way, keeps them wondering that's what she says." I smile again as I remember the first time I talked to Ami.
We were in a coffee shop and she just came out with that when I was invisable, scared the life out of me.
I can tell Jade wants to ask something but I'm not in the mood for talking about my life. I pick up the coffees and walk slowly over to the guys. "Mike your coffees the one with the blue pattern on it and Ash yours is the one with red." I say and place them on the table.
"You're always getting into trouble with them sorts of people aren't you?" Ash asks while taking a sip of his coffee. I glare at him.
"You always snog women before you help people?" I snapp back at him. Him and Mike look shocked. I sit down on a chair and ignore them both. I shouldn't of snapped but I dunno, I just did. I can see the smuge of lipstick on Ashs lips but that's not why I'm annoyed. He can kiss whoever he wants to.
I'm annoyed because I'm useless.
Everyone comes around and saves me and all I do when they're in trouble is stand there. Some mate I am.
I down the rest of my coffee and hold the cup hard in my hand as I think of all the times I've let people down because I was scared.
"Billie. Hello Billie? Billie." Jades voice interupts my memories. I look at her confused. "Where's your cup gone, I was going to wash it up but I can't fund it anywhere."
I look down at my hand that's holding the cup and roll my eyes. "I'm holding it." I mutter in a angry tone. Jade shakes her head.
"No you're not."
I stare down at my hand and relax its grip. It's there I can feel it even if I can't see it. It falls to the floor with a loud crash, Jade jumps and tries to look for whatever made that nosie but she can't see the pieces of the cup like I can.
I bend down and pick up the pieces. The others must think I'm mad picking up nothing but I'm too numb to care.
I curse as a sharp piece cuts my hand open. I put the other pieces onto the table, my blood making them visable, and put pressure on my hand.
"Billie are you alright?" Mike asks suddenly at my side. I shrug, I can't feel the pain of the cut, it just shocked me.
"I'm fine, I think we should be going. The coppers will be here soon." I say, getting to my feet. Jade nods, her and Mike walking out of the shop. I look at Ash who is staring at the table hard.
"Ash. Don't pay any attention to what that guy said, he was just trying to mess with you. If you want to talk about your parents..."
"What? Why do you think I would want to talk about them? Abd with you of all people. What will you do, turn yourself invisable and get into more trouble?" I stare at him, eyes wide.
"I'm sorry. I'm sorry that I'm useless, that I'm an easy target. But I am a good listener. And I know it's not good to keep things bottled up." I say, my voice stronger than normal.
"What would you know? Don't pretend to know what's good for me. Nothing's wrong with me but there's something wrong with you." He snapps. I close my eyes, trying to get away the tears that are forming.
I walk out the shop.Why can nothing I do be right?
Ash storms past me and gets into his car, before anyone else can get in he speeds off. Whatever happend to his parents, he's taking it rough even if he won't admit it.
"What a git." Mike glares after the car. "So, what are we going to do now?"
