Noah's POV
She stood inches away from my chest.
"I love you Noah! I don't want to loose you over you miss hearing me!"
She says it strongly but not confident. I watch as she slowly kisses me. Her lips wet from tears. I placed my hands on her cheeks and sunk deeply into the kiss. We kissed for a few minutes. Her soft hand was around my neck.
I understood now. She was protecting me.
"Im so sorry Nati."
She sat there silently, face red from tears.
"I've been wanting to tell you this. I love you too!"
I picked her up and walked back up the trail. We stop to grab her crutches. When we walk back into the house, everyone is still asleep. We sit by the window and she slowly sings her song.
Are you, are you
Coming to the tree
Where I told you to run
So we'd both be free
Strange things did happen here
No stranger would it be
If we met at midnight
In the hanging tree
Are you, are you
Coming to the tree
Wear a necklace of hope
Side by side with me
Strange things did happen here
No stranger would it be
If we met at midnight
In the hanging tree
We rocked back and forth. Her eyes were their natural hazel. She had a smile that made everything better. Sadie woke up and grabbed her bra and shirt. She put it on and snuggled up to Caleb. I kissed Nati's forehead lightly. She looked up and smiled. I enjoyed sitting here with Nati. I was surprised at what she said. I never really thought about how I felt about Nati. I guess I loved her. It just never came to mind. I guess that's how love works.
"Finnie. Finnie wake up! Come on!"
"Mills. It's too early."
"No it's not! It's 10:30!"
"Ugh"
We turned around to Millie giving Finn a kiss.
"Oooohhh! Fillie, Fillie!"
Millie jumped to her feet and stared at Nati. She walked over and shook her like crazy.
"You... Don't call us Fillie!"
She started laughing so loud she woke everyone up.
"Is Natalia dying?"
***
We walk out of Millies house and go back home. We walk through the door laughing when a familiar face finds us.
"Natália! Onde você esteve?"
"Casa dos Millies"
"Ugh. Duas opções. Fique aqui. Ou venha para a Irlanda."
"No way! I wanna stay home! I don't wanna go to Ireland! Não!"
"Why have you fallen in love?!"
"Just get out of my face!"
"Não! Answer me!"
"Ugh!! Mom! I don't have time for this!"
"Why Natália?"
"Your just like Dad! You don't think before you ask something!"
"You are crossing the line Natália!"
"What are you going to do? Ground me from Ireland? You don't care about me! No wonder you always go on trips! Bet I was an accident too! Just like your job!"
She yelled loudly. Her eyes started turning red. I grabbed her hand and she pushed it away.
"I don't have time to deal for this! Go away!"
"That's it! Natália Maria Gracian! You WILL be coming to live in Ireland!"
"I don't have to do anything! I own the house! Therefore, I can live in MY house!"
"Oh you are such a brat!"
Her mom was standing by the open door. Nati was by the stairs. I watched as my mom watched curiously.
"Go Away! Get out of my life!"
She yelled it loudly. I saw the gang was watching. They texted me.
Millster: Whats going on?
Me: Don't have time. Fill in later.
"If you don't stop this attitude in three seconds!"
"I'm sorry the old Natalias no longer on the phone right now. Why? Oh, cause she's dead!"
She lifted her arm up and screamed. Her mom went flying into the sidewalk. She wiped the blood from her nose. She slowly walked down the steps.
"Go. To. HELL!"
She slammed her mom into the car.
"If I have learned one thing from my friends, it's how to stand up for myself! How to protect myself! I learned how to love which you never taught me!"
She slightly glanced at me.
She dropped her Mom and collapsed.
"Fine! I'm leaving! Go rot in hell!"
Her mom drove away as I ran over. She cried into her hands. Her ears were dripping with blood like her nose. I grabbed a tissue out of my pocket and slowly wiped the blood. She stared at me. Her eyes were ice blue. She was sad. The others ran over in shock. I rubbed her forehead gently as I wiped her ears.  Millie examined her hand to see what happened.
"Ok. How did you send your Mom flying? I need to learn so I can do that to Ava!"
She slowly wiped the tears off her face. I pulled her into my lap and rested my chin on her head.  The others looked for scratches and bruises as I held her still. I rocked us back and forth. Trying to take her mind off of things. She flinched at some spots. But was really unharmed. I helped stand her up and got her; her crutches. We walked back in my house and I sat her down. My mom brought an ice pack and rested it on her leg. I pushed a piece of hair behind her ear. Everyone stared at me like I was crazy.
"Still ship it."
"Me too. Me too."
Millie and Sadie laughed. I guess they tried to get Nati to lighten up. She didn't.
"It's genetic."
I'm confused.
"My powers. There genetic. Ran in my family. Ancient history side."
"So your Mom has them too?"
"No. My Grandmother,and Great Grandfather had small diagnosis's of it. They got a special treatment for it. They said that it was too much to handle. Not me."
"But if their genetic... how come your parents don't have them?"
"Skipped generations? I don't know."
We sat quietly. I feel my hand hold something wet. I look over to see Nati's small hand. I rub her knuckles. We all sit silently until she speaks up.
"I'm sorry you had to learn about my dumb cursed powers.I just wish I could be normal"
I look at her blue eyes.
"Normal? Being Normal sucks! Who would wanna be normal? Your powers are amazing Nati."
I rub her hand lightly. She sits up and I help her off the couch onto the floor. We all sit in a circle.
"Millie! Truth or Dare!"
"Wait you- oh never mind Truth!"
"Is it true that you and Finn made out last night?"
Nati had an evil grin on her face.
"WHAT? No!"
"There's no need to hide it Millie."
"Ugh... maybe!"
Nati lost in and fell on top of me laughing. Sadie died on top of Caleb.
"Hey I don't wanna here it from the one who slept shirtless!"
Nati was much better. I do lover her. I really do.
