Paws and Claws pt. 7Skylar slept in my bed that night; Zavier and I slept on the couch. I got up every few hours to check on her. She had never stopped crying. She told me about how much of a crush she had had on the boy, and how he was so sweet to her at school. Then began to fumble through the club events again, tears never stopping.
This girl was strong, but getting raped was not on the I Can Handle This- Easy list. That's just not something you expect to happen. Of course it WAS by someone she knew- as it normally is- but it still isn't something you expect out of your high school crush.
As I walked into my room for the fifth time that night, I found Skylar sitting against the wall, on top of the covers, with her forehead on her knees. She shook more with each breath.
I walked over to her and sat down on the bed and stroked her hair. "Shhh. It'll be okay. Shhh."
"No. It won't. I could be pregnant."
I froze. "Oh, my God."
I love youI know I worry about you too much,
But I am you crutch.
I need to worry to keep you safe,
To keep you smiling,
To keep you from becoming a waif.
I love you with all my heart.
Even when everything falls apart.
You are my baby.
You are my friend.
Paws and Claws pt. 5Skylar didn't understand what was happening. She stopped on a roof top and watched the moon sit patiently in the sky. How the hell? . . . I shouldn't be able to do this shit, she thought. Skylar had spent the last two hours jumping from roof to roof, running and leaping without a single sound being made. It was just freaky. She stood up when she sensed another person near her, too far off to get a scent, but close enough to know they were there.
The person waved at Skylar's left, two roofs over- and leaped towards the next roof. A regular person wouldn't be this graceful. They had to be like her. The person turned back to Skylar again and did something she didn't expect. The person- whom Skylar could now tell was a chick- stuck her tongue out at her and then completed the leap to the next roof.
Skylar began to run. She was going to show this chick up. She was going to prove that she didn't need a babysitter- Skylar could tell that this is what this girl was.
I was actually enj
For A FriendI want to say how much you mean to me.
You led me forward when I couldn't see.
You showed me the way to move forward
When I just wanted to stay,
You helped me move onward.
I'm so grateful that you're in my life.
Even in times of strife.
I'm lucky to have you and will always be.
I'll save you when the time comes,
Just wait and see.
Paws and Claws pt. 4My dad came to Firebird. . . My dad shot Mike. . . . Mike's boyfriend shot my dad. . . .My dad. He was here. . . . And now he's gone again. . . Chloe felt like her mind was full of jackhammers. The pain of her migrain deprived her of making full, coherient thought. All she could think about was the fact that her dad had been in the same room with her. And now he was in a hospital. Or a graveyard, considering how many shots Chloe had heard.
Finally, she made herself get out of bed. Lying in bed, thinking about it, doesn't make it any easier. Or give any of the answers she needed. Why had Mike's date shot her dad? Why was Mike on the floor? Why did her dad seem to have something again Mia? The questions carried her towards the shower; she needed answers- but a shower was needed first.
Zavier rolled over onto his back and threw his arm over his face. Flashes of Mike dead played in his subconscience. Zavier didn't normally dream- much less dream of his girlfriend being dead. With
