'How was your first day at school then hunny?'
It went surprisingly well actually mom,
The early morning entertainment was even better! I couldn’t help but to say that with a smerk on my face, considering that Janey was the checkout girl I had seen this weekend . . . . the one that called me Boc!
'Ace coming over tonight?'
Umm yeh, i think he is coming over later on when he has finished taking his mom to do a few things in town . . at least that is what i had hoped he would do!
'You and Ace make a lovely couple, you two are just so adorable.'
Thanks mom! i said shaking my head and rolling my eye balls into the back of my head.
You do know though mom, not every guy i hang out with is my boyfriend and just because i don’t often make friends and i have made friends with Ace, and fast then . . it doesn’t mean that i want to date him!
'Sure you don't Bex!'
Ok mom, this conversation is over now, shout me when dinner is ready! On that note i left the kitchen and headed to my room - the best room according to Ace, and that i had to agree with!
Ahh peace and quiet, just how i like it - something was missing, thinking about it since the night the crazy old lady gave me the old peoples broach (which i had in my pocket) i hadn’t seen Mew!
'MOM HAVE YOU SEEN MEW ANYWHERE?' Wow shouting didn’t hurt anymore, i had healed fast!
'NO BEX, NOT FOR A FEW DAYS NOW, YOU COULD TRY LOOKING FOR HIM IN THOSE HORRIBLE WOODS AT THE BACK OF THE HOUSE, HE IS PROBABLY OUT CATCHING SOMETHING OR ANOTHER'
OK MOM, IM GOING TO SEE IF I CAN FIND HIM, I MAY BE GONE A WHILE SO JUST SAVE ME SOME DINNER!
That was strange, i know we move around a lot, but . . . something didn’t feel right and if i was being honest with myself i didn’t really want to go into the woods by myself - but i need to find Mew!
With the broach in my pocket, still not sure if the broach had some sort of power to protect me but i took it anyway i set off into the woods - thankfully it was still light but i knew within the hour it would be dark, so i didn’t waste any time.
I had sworn it was colder in the woods and a little more eerie than last time, i could have sworn that i could hear something following me but had tried to convince my brain otherwise - that it was just noises and that i was just freaking myself out!
I was getting a little faster with my pace, but going deeper into the woods this time instead of going home . .. i could hear something in the bushes and then Mew jumped out, but he was walking away from me, like he was trying to show me something.
I followed Mew only for a couple of minutes when he vanished again and as i turned around which had me facing a tree with Mew's body pinned to the old weathered trunk, my eyes starting to fill with tears!
I ran to him and just couldn't believe my eyes, my poor helpless cat had been murdered by something or someone, defiantly not an animal attack - unless animals in the woods have hands!
I pulled the spear shaped stick from his body an layed him on the ground, it was dark now but that was the last thing on my mind, by this point i was crying, but crying quietly as i new something else was with me and Mew.
'BEX . . BEX WHERE ARE YOU?'
It was Ace, i wasn’t expecting him so soon! He was running fast towards me with a very worried look drawn all over his face.
'What’s happened Bex?'
And as he stood over me, trying to catch his breath he could see what had happend.When i looked up at his the only expression on his face was worry and fear like he had been feeling the same thing as i has on the journey into the woods.
'It's not safe out here Bex, we need to get you back to your house!'
I don’t think i had to say anything at all, i think the expression on my face did it - pure disgust, anger, sorrow.
'Have you got that broach on you at all?'
Yes i have carried it with me since your granny gave it to me, with a blank look on my face i wasn’t to sure what he was getting at.
'Promise to me, that what your about to see will not be repeated to anyone, we haven’t got time to get back to the house, they would have already figured you out, your weak spot to be able to take the broach from you leaving you and i unprotected!'
Of course i wouldn't - Still not sure what he was going on about as i wasn’t thinking straight, who in the gods name was he talking about? Ace handed me a pair of sunglasses with the label still attached, i asked what they were for?
'You'll see, just put them on!'
He knelt down beside me and touched Mew's cold body and then i could have sworn the whole of the woods had been lit up, like a bomb explosion but without the noise, all i could remember is having that feeling of my stomach being left behind and Ace looking at me saying - 'Its my time to shine!'
