“Rogue, what happened?” Tara asked. Rogue just clutched her hands on either side of her head, feeling like she was about to explode.
Rogue looked up at her friend seeing the girl was about to touch her skin. “Don’t touch me!” she shouted and rose to her feet.
“What’s wrong?” Tara asked in confusion. Rogue backed up towards the railing.
“It was her!” Kalvin shouted pointing finger at Rogue.
“Yeah, that bitch just tried to kill Cody,” she heard another boy say. She didn’t recognize him, but he was wearing the same letterman’s jacket as Kalvin and Cody.
Before she knew it three boys, all jocks and probably friends of Cody’s rushed towards her. She told herself that she had to get away. But how? She had to find a means of escape. As one of the boys grabbed her, she immediately went into defensive mode, pulling herself through the jocks blocking her way. She easily knocked one of them to the ground while the other one stumbled but retained his control to not fall.
“Shit!” Kalvin said, watching Rogue take off down the porch steps. “I thought only Cody had moves like that.”
Rogue just kept running. She wanted to get away from the scene, the accusing voices, but somehow she couldn’t escape the voice in her head. It was Cody’s voice. She felt like she was losing herself, like she wasn’t Rogue anymore. She was someone else. She was Cody. His personality had taken over, and although she was conscious of her actions she couldn’t control them. All she wanted was to be home, in the safety of her room where no one could touch her. That’s where she would go. Home.
She soon approached a house. At first she didn’t recognize it. “Do I live here?” she asked out loud. “No, this isn’t home. It can’t be.” But then something took over again, something she couldn’t control.
She climbed the steps of the front porch and tried to open the door. “Damn, it’s locked.” She thought for a moment. She climbed on one the porch chairs reaching her arm up onto the sloping roof of the porch ceiling. There it was, the spare key.
