Just as I thought my day couldn't possible get any worse, that's when I saw it. The Mark. Not just any mark but the 'mark'. Beside the mark stood a dead guy. Well technically he wasn't actually dead. He still walked, talked and breathed, his heart just didn't beat anymore.
I completely forgot about everything that had happened to me today and tried to focus on the words the man was speaking. I sure felt sorry for the person who would have to leave. Everyone would shun them like they were something unnatural and wrong, including me. It was either that or be branded a freak lover. No matter how much you felt sorry for them, nobody would do anything because there was nothing you can do about it, so really there isn't any point in trying to.
Snapping out of my pityful daydream, I realised that evryone had begun to back away from me, staring in horror and disgust; everyone except my three best friends, Keller, Shaunee and Elena. They were just stood in front of me, tears streaming down their distraught faces, arms wrapped around each other, all the while not one of them taking their eyes from my face. They weren't by my side comforting me, hugging me, telling me not to worry and that its all okay, no. They didn't even say goodbye.
For the first time I actually felt the pain searing inside of me, burning its way throughout my body, setting my insides on fire, cooking me from the inside out. I hadn't even realised that I was out of breath and leaning heavily against the wall, only partially aware of what was going on around me. I felt as if i was going to pass out. I couldn't see properly, the sun was brighter than it was a minute ago. A lot brighter. It hurt my eyes to even be out in the daylight. My mind was fuzzy and I couldn't concentrate, I couldn't think, I didnt even know what was happening!
Then all of a sudden the pain subsided, it was just a measly afterthought, overlooked and pushed to the back of my mind for me to deal with later. Right now I was determined to find out exactly what was happening to me. I managed to stand up from my slouched position and take a look at the faces surrounding me. All of them portrayed looks of shock, horror, sadness, disgust and a mix of emotions but none of them good. I managed to shout something to all the people still around me. "What! Why are you all looking at me like that? Dont you have anything better to do!" I spat out, and that's when Elena tottered over towards me crying and shaking uncontrollably, clutching a small compact mirror in both of her hands. She held out the mirror and I snatched it from her, waiting for an explanation to why I needed it. With her perfectly manicured finger she pointed to the space between her neatly plucked eyebrows. "L...Look in t...the m...m...mirror." She stuttered and sobbed hysterically as she backed away, running back towards my supposed 'best friends' and falling into Shaunee's arms.
I snapped open the compact mirror which I knew had come from Elena's make-up purse. On the top half of the mirror was a lip print where she had kissed the mirror, leaving a small red pout. I flipped the mirror round and checked out my appearance. What the hell was she talking about? Everything was completely normal, there was nothing wrong with my hair, my make-up was fine. Lips, nose, cheeks, chin, ey...... Ah. Now I understood why everybody was staring at me. I was the freak.
