It was intoxicating. A rich scent. Humans released a pheromone and they didn't even know it. And they would never know because it could only be detected by creatures like him. Usually it wasn't this strong, but sweat chemically reacts with it which causes the headache Cristiano was experiencing right now. He stroked his temple and stood up slowly. The locker room was deserted. Everyone was in gym class right now where he should be. He seriously considered skipping for the third time this week but he decided against it. You wanted to attend high school again. May as well deal with it. Cristiano took a long drink out of his black bottle and shoved it in his backpack. He pulled his shoulder length hair back into a short ponytail and strode back into gym class as if he had never left. And not surprisingly it was. The coach had never noticed he had left and neither had most of the students. A few girls looked as he walked through the double doors but soon turned back to watch another girl fall straight on her butt as she tried to block a shot. Everyone burst into laughter and the girl tried to hide her embarrassment with a smile. Cristiano stood as far back as he could and watched the chaotic basketball match until it was his turn to pair up and play. Gym was by far the class he hated most. Not just because of the scent but because he had to be even more careful than usual not to give himself away. He already knew the consequences of people finding out and he hated the prospect of having to move again. It was interesting watching how slow and sloppy humans moved. Even the good ones lacked in strength and speed. But in a little while he would have to match their movements and that was not going to be easy. It never was. The coach blew his whistle and told the teams to sit. "Alright everyone, I'll be back in 5 minutes but the 4 who haven't played need to team up because you're up next," he said. Cristiano made no attempt to talk to anyone. Maybe he'd end up with someone just as bad as that other girl and it would take all the attention off of him. The young man knew that wasn't the case though. These kids loved to watch the foreign guy play sports.
