Courtney's POV: Really? Me craving attention? I'm just trying to tell him that she's just throwing another tantrum. Gwen's attention tantrums are nothing new to the people in this house. Duncan says that Gwen is different. No shit, we're all different from one another I don't know what makes her so special to Duncan. She treats him like shit and he still loves her. Ever since Gwen got here, we've had beef over nothing. She thinks that just because she has the ability to control fire and shoot it from her body, she runs the whole house. I wish she wasn't so stubborn. I wish that she didn't have an attraction towards Duncan. I wish I could tell him how I really feel. But if he's gonna talk to me that way and feel that way about Gwen, then I can wait. About 10 minutes later, Duncan came downstairs holding his side.
"What's wrong?" Bridgette asked.
Duncan removed his hand from his side as blood covered his ribs. Bridgette layed him down on the couch, pulled up his shirt, and covered his wound with glowing water.
"Gwen?" Geoff asked.
"Yup." Duncan said.
"Figures." Trent chimed in.
Duncan kind if deserved that burn from Gwen. He keeps look at me with those apologetic eyes think I'm just gonna melt. I'm still pissed off at him, but I'm not gonna give in to those beautiful, blue, mesmerizing, angelic eyes. Wait, what?! What am I thinking? I rolled my eyes as I heard a knock in the door. It was James. James is our 22 year old gateway to the outside world.
"Hey guys. Wh- what are you all sitting around for? Haven't you heard what's going on?" James said.
"What are you talking about?" Trent asked.
Gwen came downstairs with a pissed off look, plopped down in the couch, and began watching tv as if James wasn't there.
"Good news, there is someone else like you. Bad news, he's destroying everything at a pretty good rate. So since you all share the same abilities as him, you need to stop him before this world goes to waste." James said.
"This world has already gone to waste." Gwen said still looking at the tv.
Bridgette flung her fingers toward Gwen. Gwen screamed in pain as the water landed in her skin. Before Gwen could get her revenge, Geoff slung his hand toward the fire that was inches away from Bridgette's face. The sliver of fire redirected into the air then faded away.
"We'll take care of it James. See you later." Trent said then went into his room.
James left. We all went to our rooms and eventually went to sleep. I say on my bed and wrote in my daily journal as thunder roared outside. I jumped in fear as my door opened and Trent stepped in the room.
"You okay?" He asked.
"I hate storms." I said putting my journal away.
"We'll you could stay in my room if you want." Trent said.
I smiled and nodded. Trent left the room and went back into his. I walked downstairs to Trent's room as I bumped into Duncan.
"Oops. Sorry." I said.
"No, I'm sorry for talking to you like that earlier." Duncan said.
"You don't need to apologize. It's clear that you like and care about Gwen. You guys are good together. I just wish that we could have been more." I said then walked on.
Duncan's POV: "But the person I care about is you. Gwen and I are over. I just want you." I said quietly but Courtney was already gone.
Courtney's POV: When I got to Trent's room, I got on one side of the bed as he was on the other. I let out a long breath as Trent said, "What's wrong?"
"Nothing, it's just, I think you're the only person in this house who cares." I said.
Trent smiled and pulled me closer to him.
"We'll if you're talking about Duncan, he doesn't deserve someone like you. Someone as smart, funny, cute and beautiful as you. There's not a day that doesn't go by that I don't think about you and me and how we would be if we were together." Trent said and rubbed his thumb lightly across my cheek.
I smiled. Trent leaned in to kiss me. It was tender and sweet. We made out for about 10 minutes as he said, "goodnight."
I thought I would just go to sleep after that. But one person was still on my mind
