We walked out of the airport toilet swiftly, and I watched as Nick ran off to find Jade. I let him run, he had his mobile and Nick was the type of person who was easy to find. Ethan took off with him to look for Julianna too.
I saw Jerry, sat at the cafe in the airport, a coffee in his hand along with his phone and a completely different shirt on-obviously stolen. He'd seen me before I'd seen him, he had that look in his eyes as though he wanted something from me, as though he'd wanted it for a long time. No one had ever looked at me like him before, with that kind of intensity. It unsettled me, surprised me I guess.
Those green eyes, icy cold green, looking back at me as if I could warm them up. They were powerful, those eyes, pretty beautiful too. He blinked nervously when I looked at him, as if he felt guilty for staring randomly so long. But it wasn't random was it, and it was a good act that I felt for. It was funny, I always thought I could trust green eyes, as if they were safe. All of the trustworthy boys had green eyes. The dark eyes for the villains....the grim reaper, the joker, zombies. All dark.
I approached him uneasily, and sat opposite him. His hands were shaking as I stared at the steam gasping through the small drinking hole. He'd bought me one, and it was sat at the table untouched with a packet of sugar next to it. He sipped his and looked down, obviously thinking about the now dead students, the people missing.
"Did....they want to kill us because we ignored them for so long? Because we were so oblivious to them? Like we didn't know they existed?" I mumbled awkwardly, my eyes deliberately wandering around the airport so I didn't have to look at him. When I did, I noticed the cuts coating his face, dry blood sticking to parts of his hair and cheeks that he'd tried to wash off. Still handsome even though he looked like he'd been mauled by dogs.
"That's the only reason I can think of, but I don't know if it's over yet. It must be, they were the only people doing it, and their dead. We just killed them. We're going to be put into prison for this, people are going to find out that we killed students in a public toilet...I just can't-" he stopped midway and shaked vigorously, nervous.
"Jerry, I love you." -It was not on the subject, but it had been so long since I said it and i didn't want to forget. He moved seats to sit next to me.
"I love you." He replied. I loved the way he never said too, or more, like it wasn't a reply. You touched me gently on the shoulder, your hand warm through my top.
My mobile phone and Jerry's both started ringing at the same time ruined the moment, we both answered, and I put my phone on loud speaker. All I heard was rain on a pavement, hard and heavy like constant slaps. He screamed a road name down the line, but didn't manage to hang up, so the last thing we heard was the constant rain, as I held the phone and we ran to the car.
"Nick we're coming! We're coming!!" I screamed, as Jerry started the engine, and reversed, heading straight towards the road in the town we lived in.
