Roguen leaned against his car, eyes glued to the ground. He sighed, thick green and black hair falling in his dark brown eyes. He felt increasingly guilty each day. He couldn't ever get it out of his mind anymore.
First off, Cole would visit his old friend Roguen. He wanted to talk. When Cole reached Roguen he was that he was leaned against his car. "... Hey. It's nice to see you."
Celeste pauses, seeing them and quickly turning away, her dark eyes tortured. She didn't dare show herself to them, even if she had known them for a long time. She was afraid of being pushed away for what she was.
Roguen jumped and looked up, eyes surprised. "You... Why..." he shook his and rubbed his temples "Good lord Cole..." he groaned out. "Do you even realize what you caused by... ugh..."
"I'm sorry, what's happened everything has changed..." Cole had barely recognized his friend and ever more the city he grew up in.
Celeste freezes, hearing his name. "Oh god... It can't be..." she says under her breath, forcing herself to step out of the shadows. Every muscle in her body was tensed, ready to run.
"Celeste lost her fu.cking mind!" Roguen snapped angrilly. He sighed and shook his head, rubbing his temples
Cole froze, "no, that can't be. She was a strong minded girl! No, that can't be... Are you sure? Where is she? Celeste!" He screamed.
Roguen saw her and tensed, staring at her. He shook his head. "This is bad... My fault... Always..." He stepped back. Roguen seemed angry with himself
Celeste shakes her head. "No. Roguen, stay," she says quietly, walking closer. She looked almost scared, her gaze jumping between Roguen and Cole.
"Celeste... I can't.... I caused this... It's my fault..." he said, eyes haunted and hurt. "I told you he was dead... I broke you.... I can't stay," Roguen looked like he was about to bolt
Celeste grabs his wrist, shaking her head. "Roguen, I said to stay," she says, almost growling. "I wasn't broken. This is me..." She lets go, backing away, on the verge of tears.
Roguen shook his head "I BROKE YOUR COVER!" He snapped, guilt and pain on his face
"Roguen, shut up!" Celeste snaps, pacing. "I blew my fu.cking cover, not you! Quit blaming yourself for what I did! I could have handled it differently and I didn't!"
He flinched and shook his head. "Say what you want. It ws still my fault. And I got Aisling killed."
Celeste bites her lip, running a hand through her hair and shaking her head. "Why do you have to be so fuc.king stubborn, Roguen? Why?"
"Because I just am." he grumbled angrily. Roguen ran a hand through hair and closed his eyes
Celeste gently rests a hand on his arm, forcing herself to calm down. "Roguen, relax. Breathe. I... I should go before somebody sees me..."
He nodded and touched her fce sadly, guilt in her dark brown eyes
Cole saw Celeste, "Celeste?" He walked towards her. She had changed so much, "I'm sorry... I'm sorry everyone..." He knew why he was apologizing because he caused all of this. "I shouldn't have faked my death..." His face was ashen.
