"You said you'd been the new
guy once. What did you mean?"
"I moved to Decker on
my thirteenth birthday. New town, new school, new friends." He shrugged as
if it wasn’t a big deal.
"Oh, come on." I nudged
him. "Star hockey player, you couldn't have struggled to fit in that
Kai ran a hand through is hair.
"I was in a bad place back then."
Something about the bitterness in
Kai's voice silenced my reply. Instead, I said, "What's a girl got to do
to get a drink around here?"
Kai laughed, a deep rumble
vibrating from his chest. "This way, milady."
He stood and offered his hand.
We collected orders from the rest
of the group and made our way to the kitchen.
"What'll it be?" he
asked from the refrigerator.
"Soda is fine."
"Why do I get the feeling
you don't live life in the fast lane?" His head disappeared behind the
"Are you calling me
He reappeared. "I like it. I
can't explain it, Daiya, but I feel like I've known you longer than a couple of
weeks. Is that crazy?"
Kai closed the door and placed
down a couple of cans of soda. His eyes burned through me as he stalked forward,
and I stepped back, my back hitting the counter that ran the length of the
"Kai, I …" My eyes shuttered, the flames building. I clutched the amethyst
teardrop through my hoodie, and Kai's
eyes dropped to my chest. When they met mine again,

so hard I felt a little lightheaded, but still,
Kai's eyes didn't let up, and I was sure I would combust from the charged look
he was giving me.
He inched closer and reached out
for my hair. Pinching a strand behind his fingers, Kai smiled. "All I can
think about right now is kissing you." His eyes dropped to my mouth.
"I remember the way you taste."
"I …" My lips parted. I
wanted this. I wanted to experience Kai's mouth on mine for real. Not like it
had been in the bar or how it was in my dreams. But something held me back, and I pressed my hands against his chest,
inhaling a strained breath. "We should get back out there." I released
a sigh, hoping he could see that I wanted this, but I just wasn’t ready to
cross that line.
Not until I knew what it meant.
Kai's head dropped to mine, and he let out a long breath of his own.
Why had I pulled away? This was
what I wanted, wasn't it? But what if the prophecy was wrong? What if what Kai
was experiencing was just a reaction to me? To my awakening?
"Hey." His soft voice
brought me back to the room. "Come on."
I nodded and forced my lips into
a smile. But the thoughts wouldn't leave. There were too many questions still.
Too many outcomes. And one stood out above all the others: even if what Kai and
I felt was real, there would come a day
when he discovered who I was.
