Silence is louder than words.

I’m not interested in this vampire versus werewolf thing. I walked away, ignoring Konrad’s demands for me to get back there, and got on the bus, nodding to the driver. I kinda regret that now. Gabby throws herself at me and hugs me tightly. I lean back slightly, away from her and she drops her arms, stepping back.

‘I forgot - you hate me.’ She says quietly. I don’t say anything, silence speaking louder than words, brushing past her to a seat. Looks like seventh row is taken, so I sit in front of it. Jet sits next to me, a grin plastered over his cracking glamour face. He’s more of a mess than ever.

‘Don’t you wanna watch the fight?’ he asks. I shake my head.

‘I can’t say I’m especially interested in it, no. they’ve never done anything to me. Why should I care?’ I glance at him and he winks, transforming into a spider. He crawls away and I see him weave a little web in the door way, sitting in the middle to watch the fight. I slump back in my seat and stare at the ceiling.

-------------------------------

‘Jesse. What the hell are you doing?’ Konrad snaps. The silver is still in control. I try to shake my head, but the silver grips my jaw and insults tumble out of my mouth, directed at the werewolves mostly. They howl and get real angry. Oops.
