Summary: A Common Mutant story. Everyone is afraid of something.
Author's Notes: It's short but the idea hit me and I just had to write it.


Everyone is afraid of something.

The dictionary defines fear as a reason for dread or apprehension. Different things cause fear in different people. There are an infinite number of things in this world that can promote fear in any given person at any given time. Fear is always present.

When you close your eyes and you're all alone it always comes to mind. Fear is what makes goosebumps rise on your arms and the hair on the back of your neck sticks up. When you feel a cold shiver down your spine, and there is no chill, it is probably fear.

What are you afraid of? My neighbour, he fears that someone watches his every move at all times. Fear of the dark is prominent in my best friend. My mother fears the wars that are raging all around the world.

What am I afraid of? Well, it creeps in all around me. I can feel it crawling across my skin. When my mother watches the world news, I feel it. When my best friends lights go out, I feel it. Sometimes it's really hard to remember that it's not my fear I'm feeling, it's everyone else's.

I know I'm not normal. Normal people can't feel when the person in the desk beside them is terrified of failing an exam, or how your brother is petrified every time he sails over water. I'm a mutant. I can fell fear all around me, all the time. But, that doesn't scare me, but it scares my father. They know, my parents, what I am. It's hard because every moment I spend in the presence of my father I can feel his fear, his fear of me.

Everyone is afraid of something.

I'm afraid of fear.
