My wings disappeared as I hit the ground. I walked through the door and ran upstairs to my bedroom. Carefully, I shut the door. My mother didn't need to realize I had been gone the whole day. I slid into bed, and pulled my computer on my stomach.
"Tay?" I turned around and found my mother in the doorway, wearing a stern look.
"Where have you been?"
"Fly- I mean with a friend." That technically was true.
"I don't think so." I blushed. "I bet you were with some boy, right?"
"Yeah, he's a boy. But we're friends."
"Fine, Taylor. You're getting away with this one, but next time you'll get punishment." As soon as she closed the door, I cursed. Damn it! What was I thinking, flying at this time, when I should have been at school?
I should've known she would find out. It was hard keeping the biggest secret of your life, from your parents.
I clicked on my email and wrote a message to Avery.
She found out I was gone. What were you thinking?
In a minute he replied. God, don't blame me. I'm just a boy with wings!
Well, I'm just a girl with wings!
Yep, we're both freaks.
We sure are.
Pick a better time, okay?
Good night, Avery.
I fell asleep quickly, and fell into a dream.
