Journal Entry Day 2:

Dear Journal,

When I woke up this morning, my head was full of plotting ideas on how to get away from Fenn so I could have a chance to talk to Mr. Creepy. I need to know what he meant by the prophecy he told and why his eyes glowed white. I just know deep down that he has the answers I need…answers to questions that have plagued me ever since I can remember.

But Fenn and I are both off today, so it makes it near impossible to get away without notice. It shouldn’t be that way either. I can usually slip away to the library or the grocery store without Fenn by my side. But I have never been able to lie to him. He can always tell when I’m hiding something…a quirk that is fast becoming annoying.

But if I’m being completely honest with myself and with you, maybe I  just don’t want to admit that I don’t want to talk to Mr. Creepy alone. Sad to say because I’m a big girl, but I’ve always had Fenn there. He’s always made me feel protected. Maybe Mr. Creepy was right when he said Fenn was my fated protector. It’s strange to even think like that, even though deep down…I know it’s true.

And to prove my point, all my plotting and scheming to get away from Fenn came to a screeching halt when I noticed he had packed my old bookbag. The timing is impeccable. He planned a day out for us! We never go out. We never have enough money to do anything, let alone take a day to really just act our age. He says he wants a day of normalcy between us. No creepy guys, no incidents with fire…just two 18-year-olds relaxing on their day off. I wonder if it’s just a ploy to keep me from pushing him to find Mr. Creepy?

We shall see how it turns out. I have to admit, my stomach is full of frenzied butterflies! Even if he has ulterior motives, I still can’t help the heat behind my skin from thinking about us going out together. I don’t know why, but I feel like something is right around the corner. And not your average incident either. Something colossal is about to happen. I just hope that it waits until after this day. I want Fenn to be happy, and if this is what it takes, a surprise trip, then it has to go according to plan. He deserves nothing less.

He’s honking at me. Gotta go!

Journal Entry Day Three:

 

Dear Journal,

Have you ever felt like life sneaks up on you? Like it waits around a dark corner, hoping that you will innocently walk by, and then it strikes, leaving you lost and confused? For instance, I woke up this morning thinking that it was just another dull, boring day. I showered, made evil faces at Fenn because I’m not a morning person, walked to the bus stop and fought with the driver, and I worked…just like any other night. How could I have known that today would be the start of my new life? How could I know as I brushed my teeth, that when I stepped foot out of my front door, a world of possibilities would open up for me?

That’s right, I couldn’t have known. Unless I were a psychic or something (of which I am not). The future is always going to be there, waiting to pull the rug out from under you. Waiting for that perfect moment of when you least expect things. When it rains it pours…yadda yadda.

After the encounter with the creepy guy, Fenn and I had a huge fight. I couldn’t explain earlier because he walked up on me at the bus stop, but he’s passed out now on the couch. He’s a deep sleeper. But anyway, I was so angry with him for hiding the fact that he has powers. Well, let me correct myself, super strength.

Yes, I said that correctly. After we had a huge argument about him lying to me and not wanting me to pursue the creepy guy for more answers, we went home where he decided to explain everything. It seems that he has always known he was different, just like I did. He just opted not to be honest with me about it because he felt that he was protecting me. Does that make any sense? Umm…of course t doesn’t. But a lot of things he does, doesn’t make sense to me. I suppose it’s the whole “opposite sex” thing.

I was really happy that he decided to be honest with me though. Even under the “forced” circumstances. It makes me feel more connected to him. And since you’re my journal…and I’m supposed to be able to tell you everything…then I guess I should tell you what happened right after he told me the truth. To say that I have never “noticed” Fenn before, would be a lie. I have always been attracted to him. But I’ve never really paid attention to my feelings. I guess I’ve never been interested in being in a relationship.

But tonight, something clicked inside my head. Realizing that I’m not alone and that Fenn has always been there beside me…just like me…it opened something up inside of my heart. I heard the strangest lullaby while staring into his charming, endless blue eyes. I’m not sure if he heard it or what it even was, but I felt the sound in the deepest part of me. It was like my entire soul was vibrating with recognition.

I know…it sounds weird. Even as I write this I can’t help but feel cynical to what it could mean. Fenn is my soul mate. No…I can’t think like that. I would ruin anything that I tried with him. If my parents left me so easily, then I must not be good enough. He is my best friend…the only friend I have. I have to keep that in mind.

I’m getting sleepy now. I wonder what tomorrow will bring.
