Excerpt from Chapter 8

“So, hey, Brenton, ya thirsty?”  Kora inquired, taking a seat next to me.  “Because if you are Kevin will go with ya.”  She looked at Kevin, then at Brenton.

            “Yeah,” Kevin said, catching the very subtle hint in her voice.

            Seeing the look on her face I immediately realized that something was up, and that she was needing to talk about something privately.  Alone.  With me.

            Brenton looked confused, then comprehension fogged over his expression.  “Yeah, OK.  I guess I could use a coke or something.  Ya want something, Clare?”

            “Beer, please,” I answered sweetly.

            “You got it!”  He gestured to Kevin.  “Come on, Kev.  Your girlfriend thinks I need a babysitter or something.” 

            Kevin laughed and followed Brenton.

            When they were out of earshot I glared directly into Kora’s eyes.  “OK, I know something’s up.  Spill it.”

            Her laid-back smile changed into a straight line, her face serious.  “Nick’s here—and you are not gonna believe who his date is.”Hearing Nick’s name caused me to shudder, remembering the night he’d threatened me if I didn’t get him back with Kora.  Remarkably after that talk he’d kept his distance from Kora and me both, going out with a couple of different girls a week. 

            “OK, I’ll bite—who’s his date?”

            She leaned closer to me, whispering, “Daria.”

            My mouth fell open as waves of astonishment rolled into me.  “No way!”

            “Yes way,” she responded, taking a gulp of her beer.  “Look over toward the bathrooms.”

            Sure enough there was Nick by the bathrooms, his arm hanging casually over Daria’s shoulders.  As usual Daria’s crew was there, also with a couple of flunkies hanging on them.“What a scuzz!”  I commented nastily.  “Out of all the girls in this town, he picks your number one enemy to date.  How pathetic is that?”

            Kora cracked a lopsided grin.  “Yeah.  You’d think I’d be jealous, but I’m completely cool about the whole thing.”

            “Are you really?”

            “Of course,” she replied, still posting her lopsided grin.  “Besides, I’m the lucky one—I’m with Mr. Right.”  She giggled, finishing off her beer. Glancing back at Nick and Daria, something invaded my eyes that literally almost stopped myheart.  I rubbed my eyes with my fists, thinking they were blurry from all the smoke hovering in the air.  But no.  What I was seeing was really there.

            Just above Nick’s head was a rolling black cloud—at least, that’s the best way I could describe it.  It shimmered as it swirled, a mixture of black and gray.  A warm sensation began in the palms of my hands, only this time it was different.  This time the heat would intensify, then stop, then intensify, like a beating pulse.  I took a peek at my hands and for the briefest of seconds it appeared that they were aglow with a bright red light, pulsating with the heat.  After a few seconds the discomfort in my hands ceased.

            Okay, that was different.
