Chapter 5

I know it’s Jaxon even before I turn around.

“So, you figured it out.” He says, his red eyes staring into mine. Wait a second. Red, red eyes. The red eyes last night!

“You broke into my house last night!” I shout. Realizing his hand is covering my mouth, I bite him but no blood comes out.

“Did that even hurt you?” I say in disbelief.

“Nope.” he says without a hint of emotion in his voice.

“Wait, so I was right? You broke into my house? Why? And how? And while your at it would you explain to me why you aren’t “Human?””

“Well, then I guess the police will be the judge of that.” I say turning away from him.

“Ok, fine. I swear to tell the truth on behalf of my life.” He says, and I turned around to him holding one of his hands up in pledge. I can’t help it, I laugh.

“Ok. Now will you listen to me explain?” He says tight lipped.

“Yes, go ahead.” I gesture with my hand.

“I broke into your house easily. It was like an instinct, all I had to do was break the door. The next part was to observe you. For reasons I can’t say why. And lastly, I’m not human and neither is Lucas, but unless you can guess what I am, I can’t tell you anything.” He says licking his lips, and watching my expressions change from, shocked, horrified, to disbelieving and back again.
