X-MEN: Silver Shadow - Chapter 2: Denial & Pain

XMEN: Silver Shadow

Denial & Pain

Next thing I know I’m lying on a sort of comfy bed in the nurses office, I must have passed out, not again I said to myself groaning, I could her chuckling at the side of me, “well, you do have a flair for the dramatic, guess it runs in the family.” I heard, I knew who it was instantly “thanks for putting it bluntly Liv!” I sighed gently. I really don’t think that girl has a filter, sometimes I think it’s a good thing we are blood related.. Well no not really I think I’d miss her too much. I tried to get up and insist that I was fine, but the nurse came back and insisted that I lay still. Whilst lying there, I became even less convinced that what I saw had anything to do with my dad. I mean the guy works in banking, not that I ever asked him what he actually does for his job, but mum.. Now her job is much more interesting… She works as a martial arts trainer, she teaches at the local gym. She must have been learning herself for many years as I’ve seen her teaching a few times growing up, it’s amazing.

Well to say the drive home from school was quiet, would be an understatement, I swear you could hear a pin drop, I don’t think any of my friends could think of what to say. I had already dropped Olivia at my aunts, which in her case is home so now I was left with my 2 friends Sarah and Samantha, not twins just sisters, just to clear that up. But that’s when it went silent. As I pulled up to their house, I don’t think I even got a see you tomorrow. So I carried on my journey home, I was on food duty tonight as mum was going to be late and dad doesn’t get home till after 5pm and right now it was only 3.30pm. All of a sudden a bright light flashed before my eyes and blinded me, my head was pounding… why does this have to happen now, the pain is a lot more intense than last time and this has happened ever since I was 10. The pain suddenly ended and I had to swerve the car to get it back on the road, at least that was over, well that’s what I thought.

I arrived home less than 10 minutes later, feeling completely drained. I walk in the front door and set my bag down by the wall and walked into the living room. There were mum and dad waiting for me to enter like I was about to be interrogated by the feds! I mean all I did was faint. But here we go….

I walked into the room and sat down in the closest chair to the door there was, so I could make a quick escape if necessary. “So… I’m home… did you want to talk to me?” I asked them, “Sorry honey but this is an important conversation, we just don‘t quite know how to put it” my mum replied, “look if this is to do with me fainting at school, I couldn’t help it, I hadn’t had much to drink and….” I replied rambling, my parents didn’t seem to know that I saw them glance at each other and then physically relax, then my dad said “that’s ok honey, we were rather worried it was something else, but make sure you drink plenty next time.” Ok now I’m feeling suspicious.

NOTE: This chapter was written entirely by me, the next one will be written by me friend. I can no longer link her in as she is not longer on DeviantArt.

Also apologies for the very late upload!
