I heard a couple of uncomfortable murmurs and gasps going around. Abby gave me a furrowed-eyebrows look. “You aren’t harmed, are you?” She began to pat down on my chest and arms and I laughed.
“I am truly fine Abby, please stop it. No harm will come to me here and it has nothing to do with Meir or his family.” She let out a huge sigh of relief.
“Oh thank the lord.” She honestly sounded so relieved and I gave her a smile before ruffling her head of curly red locks.
“You know, with how your hair is today it reminds me of a story I know...” She smiled brightly at me before she looked closer.
“Jun...Something is different about your eyes....” She leaned in closer as I pulled away but she took my glasses off and it was like she had released a demon inside my body. I clutched at my chest as my lungs seized and I fell to my knees. My heart pounded in my chest as the sound of leaves rustling in the wind raced through my ears mixed with the combination of the students in the hallway. Suddenly the leaves grew silent and I heard laughter.
“He’s joined us.” A voice whispered before the real world stopped me from wondering about what happened. Abby was suddenly against the lockers farther down the hall and guess who held her there?
I really didn’t want to do this, but my mind was still foggy and I had to pull my glasses back on before my brain split in two.
“What did you do to him?” Meir spat between his jagged teeth and Abby trembled in fear.
“Meir, leave Abby alone. You have no right to do that to anyone here.” Meir let Abby go and she sunk to the ground trembling as Meir turned to face me, concern on his flesh.
