I heard Ravyn screeching at Mark down the corridoor and flinched at the pain in her voice. She was clearly very upset, probably feeling horrifically betrayed and abandoned by the very people who were supposed to be her friends.
Oh boy did I know how that felt.
I sighed and looked at FairLight, still asleep on my bed with her bear curled in her arms.
"I really don't know why you came to find me kid," I said to her sleeping form, "I'm no good for you, or for your future. You ought to just go back to your Mum and stay there. She knows what's best for you. Technically I shouldn't even be here," I laughed cynically, "In fact I shouldn't technically be exist at all."
All thoughts of sleep dispelled, I turned and scrambled out of the window and took off into the dark, my form dark against the bright moon above me. I needed time and space to think.
That was, if I wanted to retain my sanity.
