“Jun? Are you alright?” For once I wasn’t trying to save face and just shook my head.
“No. I don’t know what to do Meir.” I whispered and he frowned.
“I wish I could make it all go away but you won’t let me Jun. I want to help you.” I shook my head.
“No Meir, you just want my blood.” He flinched away as if I could burn him with my tongue because even though it offended him we both knew it held some truth. “Besides, I don’t want to be chained here forever. I want to leave this place whenever I can and that is not possible if you ‘save me’ as you said.” I spoke with venom deep within my chest, poisoning all of my words. “God, I just...I really shouldn’t even be here right now.” Meir sighed.
“Jun, of course you should be here. Your Mother and Father only want the best for you.” Meir didn’t get it, he didn’t know what I was saying as he spoke but as my features slowly looked more and more sad and forlorn he finally got it. Suddenly I was against the counter top, my back pressed so deeply into the stone I felt like we were one being. A dark cloud had covered Meir’s face now, and I wasn’t even scared. “JUN WILLIAMS! HOW DARE YOU SPEAK SUCH WORDS?” He was furious, his tone was just a whisper but everyone ducked behind their stations as they saw his rage. The Principal was at the door in a second but I stopped him, shaking my head as I stared at Meir.
“Frick Meir, just put me down.” He slammed me against the countertop and my head rocked back and hit the bruise from before and I sucked in a deep breath as I saw stars. Suddenly Meir was a different person, apologising over and over again as he helped me sit up and ordered the Principal to take me to the nurse’s office and have my head looked at. I didn’t look at him as I left and I think that hurt him the most. What the hell was going on? Just yesterday Meir was a total asshole to me and now today he was treating me like I was a god. I wonder what happened in his brain to make it change so suddenly.
