I stumbled away from the building, confused. What had just happened? I looked over at Janessa, a questioning look on my face that soon turned to concern. Her face was white and she was shivering. From the temperature, and the fact that we were in shorts, I knew it wasn't from chiliness . That only left one thing. Fear.
I stepped closer to her, putting my arm around her shoulders.
"You ok?" I asked, looking into her violet eyes.
She nodded. "Yes." she squeaked.
I nodded and we walked on in silence. I was tempted to ask her what had just happened, but another look at her made me keep quiet.
"Would you like me to walk you home?" I asked, and she nodded.
Trying to lighten the mood, I hummed one of her favorite songs and told jokes. I actually got a smile out of her once or twice.
When we arrived at her porch, I saw a figure move in the window. I smiles and waved to her mom, then turned back to Janessa.
Grasping her shoulders and looking into her eyes, I asked again "Are you sure you'll be fine?"
She smiled at me, which was a relief, and smiled. "Yes, I'm fine. Thank you, Parker."
I nodded and sent her off, noticing the way the light glinted off of her blonde hair.
Sighing, I took off down the road. Towards home. Humming along the way, I looked at all the houses, once again wondering why I couldn't live in a normal house like a normal person. Instead, I lived in the Hotel Quincy, jokingly called HQ by those that live and stay there.
Greeting Charles, the door man, I went up to the two bedroom suite that I share with my parents. At the moment, neither was in. So I plopped onto the couch to watch TV. That's when I heard a noise.
Uh oh. The boss was mad.>
