Me and Allan have been hugging for a while now, but my tears still fall and Allan still brushes them gently away. My body doesn't want to change into the creature anymore but I still don't want to go back.
They're probably still there. I don't want to go back and feel my body want to change again. I don't wanna go back, knowing that they have seen me vulnerable. I move out of Allans arms and run my hands through my really red hair. The sun always makes it look redder. Allans hand's on my back.
"Sorry Lins." I turn to him confused. "I know I should of stopped but, I couldn't. He tried to kill us. He nearly killed you. I wasn't going to let him do it again." His voice is gentle. I shake my head.
Allan leans closer to me, are faces inches apart. "I don't want anyone to hurt you Linsey Smyth." I push him back and get feet.
I look down at a confused Allan. "Al, look. I don't feel what you do. Sorry." I shrug and look away from him. There's a bit inside of my that hurts when I said that. Something I haven't felt in a long time and it flutters when I'm with Allan. I don't get it. I know what it is but it can't be. It mustn't be.
"Linsey. You can't tell me that you dont feel it." I turn and see Allan standing in front of me. I swallow. "That feeling is weakness. Look what it's made Adam do. He thinks that if he did kill us then him and Sapphire can be together. It's weak!" I glare at him. He shakes his head. "Is that how you feel about your parents? Every time you look at them; do you feel weakness?" I slap him hard around the face, anger taking over.
"Don't you dare talk about my parents!" I hiss at him. "Why? Because what I said's true." My eyes are blazing and my body wants to change. I can't change though, I'll hurt people. "They're dead." I say through gritted teeth. Allans expressions change fast. He walks over to me. "I'm sorry Lins. How?" His voice is soft again and I can't help replying. "I killed them."
Allans eyes went wide. "No." He shakes his head. I nod, then I turn and run.
I did kill them. I didn't mean to but I did. Fresh tears started rolling down my face as I ran onto the beach. I used to always turn into animals at home, mostly tigers. But one day I found out that I could change into something else. A dragon.
One day I heard a gun go off and I got scared. I wanted to run and hide but my parents wouldn't let me. They kept telling me that I was safe. I was so scared, I turned into a dragon and tried to get away. I did in the end. But I killed them.
They were only trying to help and I killed them. I was so depressed, I tried to kill myself. That's how I got my scar. All I remeber was that there was blood everywhere.
The dragon is what I felt inside me today. That's why I ran. I can never let that happen again. Never! I can't get close to people. It's too risky; even though I want to have friendship.
I stare out onto the sea, tears rolling down my face. I shouldn't be near people. I should be locked up. I start running down the beach, blowing off steam. I bump into someone and we both go flying onto the floor.
I quickly get off him and stand up. He stands up to. "You should watch out for other people Kevin, the world doesn't revolve around you!" I stare at him and realise his face is wet. "Sorry." He mumbles. "You okay?" I shrug, looking at my feet. "You?" He shrugs too. "Thinking about home?" I nod. "
Me too." I sit down and he sits next to me. "Where's Allan then?" I shrug. "Don't know don't care. Where's Sapphire?" He shakes his head. "God knows." I look at him. Why is he so sad about home? He reads my expression. "My mum was trying to be a hero and got herself killed."
