Chapter10-Child

I rolled onto my side and watched Kendall. He was staring up at the tops of the trees, his eyes widened. He looked so relaxed, so peaceful.

His chest rose and fell gently almost like he was sleeping. His lips were parted just a little, not enough to make that cute I'm-staring-at-nothing-with-my-mouth-hanging-open-look. His eyes moved around and he noticed me staring at him. He sat up on his elbows and looked down at me.

"What?" He asked, laughing a little.

I took a deep breath and my wings shivered in anticipation. I swear, sometimes I thought they had their own personality. "Can't I just stare at you? Or is that a crime?"

He smiled. "No, you can. I just wasn't sure why you were."

I ran a finger across his jaw line and rested my head on my left arm. "Don't you get stared at a lot?"

"Nope."

I rolled my eyes and stretched closer to kiss him. "I stare all the time. When I'm not with you, I watch you from the trees."

He ran his hands over my wings. "That's reassuring. Now I'm never coming here alone."

I laughed and sat up on the grass. "You never really are alone."

"Thanks." He said sarcastically, sitting up beside me.

My phone buzzed in my pocket. I sighed and looked to see who was calling me. Maya.

I sighed apologetically and looked over at Kendall. "I have to go."

He slipped his hand over mine. "Let me walk you back."

I nodded and walked beside him slowly.

"So you're staying the whole weekend?" He asked, looking down at me as if he could change my mind.

I nodded. "She told me I could stay here anytime I wanted but this is the first weekend I'm staying with her. I don't want to hurt her feelings and change plans."

"She'll know something's up."

I sighed. I was afraid she would. Even in my sleep she would know. And she'd stalk me until I told her what was up. I couldn't hide it from her. I had to act normal. "Nothing's really up, Kendall If I tell her that I just missed you, she'd rant on and on about how I pick boyfriends at the wrong time." By then, I was just rambling on. "I haven't had a boyfriend other than you. So I don't know what she's talking about. But if she wants to think-"

He kissed me softly, chuckling. "Hey, slow down. We have plenty of time to talk when you come back. Okay?"

I looked up at him, breathless from my talking on and on and from his soft, gentle kiss. I nodded.

We were close to my house now. I could see Maya watching from the window of the living room. Great. No doubt she could hear everything.

"Cut this short today, okay?" I mumbled, stopping Kendall where we were.

He nodded and kissed me softly. "See you Monday."

I sighed and nodded back at him. "See you." We went our separate ways and I couldn't help but take a look at him before I walked inside.

I ran a hand through my hair and shivered softly. I closed my wings inside my back and stopped to talk to Maya in the living room. "Were you stalking me?"

"Like you stalk Kendall?" She asked, smiling.

I sighed. "Shouldn't I get privacy? I'm not even here at the house."

She got to her feet and walked to my side. She took my hand and I could tell she had been thinking for a while. "When you're my age, the only fun you get is from watching your children."

I hugged her softly. I was her child. Someone almost like her. I liked that.


I'm making this the ending since not many people really like this story. Sorry to those of you who do.

I figured this would be a nice place to end. Though it doesn't give much depth, it's a soft, gentle way to end it all.
