Adam: Waiting

I watched Linsey destroy the trap door and leave us down here.

"So we are waiting for Kevin huh?" Sapphire nodded.

I went to sit over on a granite slab in the corner of the room alone. Sapphire came over and sat next to me.

"So who exactly are you?" she asked.

"My names Adam Stone, theres not much to tell really, I love football and basketball, I love going to the gym and my dad is a jewellist. I found out I had a power shortly before being captured and to be honest with you..." I didn't really like sharing my feelings, "It kinda scared me. I tried to use my powers before when I got in this place but I can't control it very well so I ended up dropping the granite on myself," I rubbed the back of my neck in embarrassment. I looked into her eyes, they were dark and rather beautiful and I couldn't help but feel a strange feeling enter my stomach, "are you ok?" I suddenly said.

She looked at me like I was crazy, "you're the one who was trapped under a huge rock and you're asking me if I'm okay?" she snorted with laughter and I joined in, "thanks for asking anyway but yes I'm fine," I smiled slightly happier than I should have been.

I took out a rock from the ground and put my hands over it, "My dad works with rocks and precious stones and cuts them into perfection, I don't have his level of precision but..." I removed my hand revealing a small swan made out of sapphire and handed it to her, "...I can still make stuff like him," I tried to smile but found out i couldn't, there was an intensity in my looks, like the next few moments were crucial, but I couldn't decipher her expression.

"Hey I had an idea!" Jadia called out, "anyone fancy a game of spin the bottle?"

The End
