The Girl With Wings

Chapter 15


Chapter 15

Yusei's POV

For me, morning was always early and it was also the same for Jayla. I got out of bed and got dressed around seven in the morning. Crow and Jack were still asleep. The rest of the night went by without another incident.

I felt really bad for my sister. That nightmare she had really looked like it scared her to the core. It reminded me of when I first battled Kalin when he was a Dark Signer.

I walked out of the bedroom I shared with my friends and into the living room. Jayla was sitting up with a distant expression. Something was up.

"Jayla?" I called.

She looked up at me. "Oh, hey," she greeted.

"You okay? You looked kind of distant," I asked.

"I'm fine. I'm still a bit shaken by that nightmare. It felt so real. It was like a warning that was happening at the moment," she answered.

I nodded in acceptance. I noticed Josh wasn't by her side or anywhere in view. "Hey, Jayla, where did Josh go?" I asked.

She shook her head. "I don't know. He was gone before I woke up," she answered.

"Weird. That doesn't seem like him," I said. She nodded in agreement.

"Maybe we can find him. You want to come with me?" Jayla responded.

"Of course. We can take my duel runner," I said.

She nodded. We got on and drove off. We looked in every direction and Jayla's enhanced sight and hearing helped. But there was no sign of him.

"I don't think I'll ever get used to a duel runner. But it sure beats walking," Jayla said.

I gave a small laugh. "Well, when you fly and walk everywhere, it really would be a change to get used to." She laughed a bit before looking for Josh went back to being priority.

She then sat up. "I hear something!" she exclaimed.

"Where?" I asked.

"Turn right and then to the beach. I think he's there," she responded. "Hurry!"

I then kicked it up and rushed down as best I could without getting into trouble. When we reached the beach sidewalk, we hurried off and reached the top of a small, sandy hill.

"There he is!" Jayla exclaimed pointing to a group just below us.

Josh was surrounded by three other, normal guys. I wasn't sure to be relieved or worried that they were normal.

"We gotta get down there," I said.

Jayla nodded and we hurried down the hill. Jayla was the first to reach the bottom. It was there we could hear what they were saying.

"So, are those things real?" one kid asked with a voice that made him sound like a bully.

"No kidding. You would be as much as a freak as that one psychic girl. Maybe more," another said.

"So are you a freak?" the third growled.

"How about we find out ourselves. Let's play the pain game. See if you flinch when we pull one of those feathers," the first one suggested.

Josh growled in frustration. He knew he was cornered. People were beginning to gather around. I stepped in with Jayla.

"Don't you guys know what you're doing is wrong?" Jayla asked.

"And who would you be? His girlfriend?" the second growled.

"He's a good friend. Now how about you leave," Jayla said.

I glared at them.

"Hey, Klex! She's got similar things on her back!" the third exclaimed to the first.

"So, we have two possible freaks. How about we try the pain game on both of you?" the first asked.

Jayla took her place where she was back to back with Josh. "You ready?" Josh asked her.

"You bet," she responded.

I'm so sorry for the short chapter. I'll try to get them as long as possible.
