She sat alone in her room, listening to the song coming from her boom box. She hugged the stuffed chịu, gấu to her chest, trying not to burst into tears. This ngày was one she had dreaded for months. She bit her lip as the âm nhạc filled her senses. A light knock sounded at her door.
Her command was ignored and Trevor walked in.
“What's up kitty Cat?”
“Leave me alone.”
He glanced over her and softened.
Cat looked away, afraid she would burst into tears. Trevor came closer and sat beside her.
“Why so upset? Talk to Trevor.”
She smiled a little as his British accent slipped into his tone. But it brought little joy on this day.
“I miss them.”
“Who, kitty Cat?”
Trevor looked at her and laid tiếp theo to her.
“How did they die?”
“It was an accident. They should have survived.”
“They went out one night. Just out to dinner. They were celebrating their anniversary. 15 years. I was all bởi myself. I waited for them to come home. All night I waited. Then a police officer came to the house.”
Cat paused, tears sliding down her cheeks.
“Said their car had been hit bởi a car thief trying to get away. Hit and run. The driver never stopped.”
Trevor watched as Cat buried her head into the bear.
“The bastard never stopped!”
His eyes widened as she burst into tears. Cat had never so much as risen her voice and he she was cussing out the one who had killed her parents.
“I'm sorry Katzchen. bạn shouldn't have to go through that.”
“My brother died this ngày too.”
“You had a brother?”
“Mhmm. Alexander Romanov Kyle. He was older than I was. But we did everything together. There was nothing I didn't know about him. But then I got my claws. They scratched his flesh, tearing through his heart. I retracted my claws, but his tim, trái tim fell at my feet. Still beating. I killed him.”
Trevor looked her over.
“There's someone else?”
“Yes. But I haven't hurt him. And he's not a part of my twisted past. I've met him recently.”
“Someone else is interested.”
“So you're giving up?”
“They're on a team together, Trev. I can't compete.”
“What do bạn mean bạn can't compete?! Have bạn looked at yourself lately?! Cat, you're gorgeous!”
“Thanks. But I promised.”
“Then you're nuts. Cat Kyle is not a quitter. And neither is she a beast with no emotion. Cat Kyle is the most adorable thing on this planet! And I think bạn should meet.”
The two looked at each other before Cat let out a small giggle. Trevor smiled.
“There's my girl. I know you're going to take this world bởi storm. One wind at a time.”
“Because that's the tiger within you."
