Freedom (Completed!)
Author: M.L. Holt

Chapter 8
Out of the Ordinary

Life became a pattern.

School.

Work.

Bed.

Repeat as necissary.

I grew to love my time alone with Aaron and Donovan. They were really the only reasons I kept with this new life. Most kids would skip school if they had the chance. Well, I have that chance. I don't skip. Call me crazy.

Time blurred together. Eventually, I couldn't tell one day from the next. I knew it had been weeks since my first day here, but it felt like only days. The facination most people had had with me and Donovan that first day faded. Eventually, most people just ignored us.

I was fine with that.

I was fine with the fact that bullies tried to pick on me. I was to smart for them. Do you know how fun it is to insult people with words that they have to look up in a dictionary just to understand? I insult them, and they just stand there dumbfounded because they hav no idea what I just said.

You should try it sometime.

Anyway, bullies stayed away, everyone else simply ingnored me, but I always had Aaron and Donovan. We got through October and well into November before anything out of the ordinary ever happened.

And I'm sure this kind of out of the ordinary isn't even normal for most people, let alone us.

It was terrifying for me. Actually, for almost everyone.

The school was on fire.
