The names he got for me were for Samantha, Wendy, and Grace Richards. Funny how Richards was his last name, I doubt he thought I noticed, but I did. He told me when he first met me, after we were somewhat safe and not eye to eye with the enemy. “Leo Aaron Richards” he said. I wondered how he got those names, he probably knew them and something probably happened to them. But I wouldn’t pester him about it.
“Hey, Leo? Can I ask you something?” I said, walking into his hotel room one door down. He was lying on the bed tossing a baseball up and catching it at blinding speed. I almost rolled my eyes at that.
“You just did, but yes you may ask another,” He replied, grinning.
“Thanks smartass!” I growled.
He laughed, “Seriously, what?”
“I was wondering about something you did earlier this week,” I hesitated, biting my lip.
“Spit it out Bella!” he said laughing at me.
I took a deep breath, “Why can you cry?”
He tensed, so did I.
“I was upset.” He said.
“Leo, there’s something your not telling me.” I said.
He narrowed his eyes, “No there isn’t.”
He started to growl, his anger burned like fire. I winced and took a step back.
April ran into the room, “Look!” she said excitedly, pulling Summer in behind her.
“April, it’s okay. No big deal.” April gave her the yes-it-is-now-stop-arguing-with-me look, she was just like Alice sometimes. Summer sighed, “My throat doesn’t hurt anymore, it’s really no big deal!”
I smiled at her, “That’s good sweetheart.”
Summer rolled her eyes and they walked out of the room arguing over it’s importance.
As soon as they were out of the room I looked down, shame was rolling off of him in strong waves.
“I’m sorry.” He said, “I shouldn’t be to touchy about it, it’s just that Jude said I shouldn’t tell others about my ability, and he’s usually right about stuff like that,” I didn’t look back up at him, “Bells look at me, I’m sorry.”
I smiled slightly, “No, I shouldn’t pester you.”
He mumbled something like “I still feel bad.” then looked up at me, “I can do something with emotions but I can’t control it, I’m sorry, I try but it’s like some kind of bull. Just when I think I have it, it throws me off. It makes me feel weak, then that makes it worse.” frustration was clear in his tone, and I started to feel frustrated. My forehead creased and I felt hot.
“See?” he noticed, “sorry.”
“And you need to hide that?” I said.
“It can easily be used against me.” He said, shrugging.
No, I’d hate to make him feel bad. Poor guy is like Jasper, only worse. Why was I constantly being reminded of my past? Of my best friend? Of my brothers and sisters? Of Edward?
“Are you guys hungry?” I called to the back seat. I needed to be better at avoiding those trains of thought.
“Yeah.” Summer said.
“Okay, what do you want to eat?” I said, smiling.
“hmm…I’ll have a hamburger.” She said.
“I want chicken nuggets!” April called.
I should probably get them more things to do, they were low on their coloring paper.
I sighed, their birthday was coming up, and I wanted ten to still be special.
