13. Complications [4/6]

Look at you, so…overheated!" Seth exclaimed.

I glared at Seth and recalled the memory. I started hyperventilating after Sakura went out my room and I didn't go down to eat dinner, locked the door and pushed out every person trying to communicate with me; but Seth teleported in and started talking.

"You are so optimistic, Seth!" I shouted.

"Fine, but you should admit, you're pessimistic," Seth said calmly.

That was it, I blew up.

"Pessimistic?! Pessimistic?! Don't talk to me about being pessimistic! Besides, why didn't you tell me?!"

The color drained out of Seth's face.

" I would've been more sensible if you were out of my life!"

Now Seth looked angry.

"I've been hurting my best friend all along! And you don't even care about yours, Tommy!" I continued, babbling on.

"Did you think I'd been avoiding you all my life just for fun?!" Seth yelled, drowning my nasty comments.

My mouth fell open.

"You think I was being mean to you all the time for the heck of it? Well, no! I was doing it for Tommy. And the reason why I acted all cool and mocking around you is because I didn't want anyone knowing how much I liked you!"

I stared at Seth. I didn't know he had been going through this much. Why? Why do these twists always happen in my life?!

"I liked you since the first time I saw you. But Tommy started having feelings for you so I let it go!"

I looked stupid, looking at him like some sort of maniac. I didn't care though, I felt bad. I felt horrible for not knowing how he felt this whole time.

"Then Tommy and Ruth exchanged crush secrets and tried plotting ways for us to like them. But I wish they had realized that we were already a…" Seth's voice broke at the end.

I walked toward him, trying to keep calm myself and put either hand on one shoulder, like the way I did with Johnny when he was angry.

"Seth, I'm sorry," I whispered.

He looked at me like I had never seen him look at others before.

"I liked you because you remind me of Jean," he said.

I stared at him, confused.

"My mom…"




Seth and I didn't talk to each other at all when we rode to school. I remembered yesterday, how he just unexpectedly vanished after telling me everything. How he just teleported out my room, leaving me holding on to thin air.

I was really getting sick of all these series of shocking events happening in my life. I didn't like at all how Seth kept changing, no keeps changing because he still is.

Why can't he just act normal for once?! I know the mind reading power drives him crazy but why can't he just handle it like Sakura? Why did he vanish last night after telling me I reminded him of his dead mom?! WHY?!

Then all of a sudden, I felt like I had been punched in the gut. I didn't like this at all. Next, I did something I never would have done in my life. Using my telekinesis, I slammed on the brakes. The car skidded to a stop and I jumped out the car, and started walking the opposite way instead going to school.

I heard Seth get out too.

"What's wrong with you?!" He yelled at me.

I ignored him and continued walking up the road.

"Why are you always acting like this?!" He continued yelling.

"Why am I acting like this?! It's all because of you!" I yelled back, still not giving him eye contact.

He teleported to stand in my way and I side-stepped to my left and he did the same, blocking my way.

"You're not going anywhere," he hissed.

I crossed my hands in front of my chest and looked the other direction, trying to avoid looking into his eyes.

"Why are you so angry?" Seth asked, trying to keep his cool.

"What's it to you?" I pushed him and as he stumbled back, I walked past him. And he tells me he has Super Strength.

"I'm your boyfriend, that's why," he said, following me from behind.

"Not anymore you aren't," I said under my breath.

"I heard that!"

I sighed, suddenly feeling exhausted. Stopping my fast pace, I turned around to face him.

"Look, I am in no good mood to talk about how this relationship is going," I said, trying to keep calm. "All I can say is, you're hiding things from me and I don't like it when you do that. Like the mind reading thing and the Ruth and Tommy issue. I'm just getting sick of all the unexpected turn of events occurring in my life."

"And I thought you liked drama," he muttered.

I shot him a piercing look.

"Fine, I'll tell you all the things I've hid from you and I'll answer any question you ask me in your life. Happy?"

"Fine!" I said, grumpily and walked back to the car.

"For one, you remind me of my mom because…"

The End
