17. New love affairs and a broken angel

The rest of the weekend went kind of quick. All Saturday I watched loads of series and was really unsocial. I nearly didn’t eat anything, but I didn’t feel hungry at all. I have a thing doing that.

I woke up the next morning and did the usual thing: put on some makeup and got ready for school. On the way to school I met Skylar Umma and we rode together. We locked our bikes and went to class.

After class we all sat down at ‘our’ table in the cafeteria and ate our lunch.

“What have we all been up to this weekend?” I heard Milo ask and smile.

“I’ve been a lazy ass and watched drama series all weekend” I answered and giggled. Skylar Umma narrowed her eyes at me and I quickly got her reference. “And of cause I hung out with this awesome umma” I said and bumped my shoulder into Skylar Umma’s. She laughed and shook her head, thinking I wasn’t sane.

“Sounds awesome” Dominic said and cleared his throat. He looked hurt and kind of sad. I raised my eyebrow at him and he answered with shaking his head. He’s sad and I don’t know why. Ugh, boys never talk about their feelings. So annoying.

“I’ve been recovering from a horrible hungover all weekend, thanks for noticing” we heard Ryan complain and groan. We all laughed and Jade rolled her eyes. He sent her an annoyed smile and it seemed like they had some kind of indirect joke between the two of them.

“Hey Lotus?” I heard Milo call and I turned my head towards me. He moved closer to me, if he was about to tell me a secret. I raised an eyebrow.

“Thanks for getting us the invites! I had so much fun and I met this girl, right?” he began and I laughed. I knew where this was going.

“And um, I got her number and we’ve been texting all weekend” he said nervously and looked into the ground. I guess this girl must be one of a kind since he’s so nervous talking about her.

“I kinda like her, but here’s the problem. The girl’s name is Cassandra and she’s the sister of one of my friends, actually one of my best friends” he continued and scratched the back of his neck with his hand.

“I can’t see the problem? Just ask him if you can date her, simple” I said and tried to give him a smile and light up his spirit.

“Um.. You wouldn’t say the same thing if you knew who’s sister it is..” he said hesitating and pouted. I raised my eyebrow and demanded him to tell me what’s up.

“You see, this best friend of mine is Ang-“ “WHAT!?” I shrieked and looked with huge eyes at him. He can’t be serious about this! Is he best friends with Angelo!? HOW IS THAT POSSIBLE!?

The rest of the table looked at us curiously and I tried my best to remain calm. After some seconds of staring they returned away their attention from us. I gulped.

“You can’t be serious about this. I know this isn’t really what you hoped for in this conversation, but how in the world can you and Angelo be friends? I mean, coooome on! The kid have been an asshole to you and the group all our lives!” I explained and took a deep breath. I frowned and looked sternly at him.

“I know you hate him and all, but he’s not that bad. Actually” he said and got closer. “He’s been seeing this girl and we won’t tell us who, but he seems so happy and I think he actually would let me date her. He’s so ecstatic about everything and so positive. It’s so weird to see, when we’re used to an ice cold Angelo who flirts with every living female creature” I giggled at his comment.

“Yeah, he’s very good with ladies. But on the other hand I’m having a really bad feeling that he won’t say yes. What should I do? I mean, I can’t just date her without his acceptance”

“Why not? I asked.

“Because it’s his sister? The last guy she dated got a concussion and was hospitalized for a week because he hadn’t asked for permission” he said with a very frightened voice. His teeth were practically clapping onto each other and I could see he was genuinely scared. I sighed.

“I guess you can see why I’m very hesitating with this. I don’t wanna die!” he exclaimed.

I shook my head and smiled.

“You’re not going to die, moron! If the things you’re saying about him are true, then I know he’d agree okay? No need to afraid” I secured him and sent him a smile. He took a deep breath and chuckled.

“You think? You have to be sure, I don’t wanna die!” he cried out and  chuckled.

“Yeah, you said that a couple of time, I got it the first time” I ranted and giggled. He huffed and rolled his eyes. He still looked kind of freaked out, so I decided to take some action.

“Milo?-” You asked and he turned his attention towards you, “I don’t think you should be that afraid. Just ask him nicely and let’s see how it goes? Let’s try to be a little positive here! That bad attitude won’t help you at all” you pointed out and send him a fond smile.

Milo exhaled in relief and chuckled. “I guess you’re right” he said and glanced at the 7 pair of eyes looked in their direction.

“I guess we should get back” you exclaimed and Milo nodded.


The school bell rang and with one piece of Skylar Umma linked around your arm, you went out of class laughing at a joke Ryan had told. It was so cheesy and bad it was funny and you couldn’t stop laughing.

You placed a hand on your stomach and continued. Dominic ran up to you from behind and threw his arm around your waist. You didn’t mind as you were busy laughing your ass off and glanced down the yellow lane. Dominic seemed pleased as you haven’t removed his arm and smiled for himself.

As you all got to the yellow lane you hugged Skylar Umma goodbye and waved at the rest. Milo went up to hug you and whispered in your ear. “Thanks for the advice, I’ll see what I can do” he assured you and as he loosened his arm from you, you sent him a big smile and gave him a thumb up.

Dominic looked at you two with narrowed eyes and you rolled eyes at him. You went through the door and together with Ryan and Dominic to our lockers. You got your things and walked straight out, unlocking your bike and began to ride home.

As you got close to your home you saw that same car from before parked in our driveway. I raised an eyebrow.

I jumped of my bike and tiptoed towards my house. I heard my mom and some other male voice talk to each other and I shut my mouth and listened to what they were saying.

“This can’t be happening! Lucy, didn’t I tell you to stop your daughter from getting with my son!?” I heard the male voice shout at my mom. I heard my mom wimping and sobbing.

“It’s not my fault, please don’t hurt me.. I did all I could to keep them away from each other” I heard my mom’s voice say, her voice cracked over in the end and she sobbed again.

“I – I’m sorry, Lucy. I didn’t mean to be like this” I heard the male voice say softly to her.

“It’s okay, Michael. I just wished we could be together” I heard my mom say to the male.

“Me too, but we can’t. We need to keep those two from each other, so we can be together. You know I love you, right? This love is only for you and it have been like this ever since we met at the first time. Even throughout you being married and born that girl Lotus, you’ll always be mine. Joey, he didn’t deserve you” I heard the man say. I felt an unpleasant feeling spread in my stomach. What is this? MOM FFS!?

Joey was my dad’s name and he did deserve her even more than this dude will ever do.

Be Together.

The words kept circulation through my mind. What is this relationship with this man and my mom? I thought she didn’t love anyone but my dad. I guess she had moved on and already on with a new guy.

I turned around, turning my back towards the wall and slowly glided down. I sat down and gaped at the ground. I can’t believe this. I guess mom had found a new guy and after what I’ve heard he’s not being kind to her. I mean, she said ‘Please don’t hurt me’, this man must’ve hurt her in some way.

I sighed.

This will and cannot hurt my in any way. I hate her sometimes, but she’s till my mom and I love her. I got up and walked fast and determined towards our front door. I smashed the door open and saw same man from before having his arms around my mom, who was sobbing and tears running down her cheeks. I made big eyes and felt the anger built up inside. They both looked in horror at me, but I didn’t care. I growled at the two and with my mouth I made a straight line.

“Get off my mom or I’ll call the police” I warned and pressed my fists together. They shared a look and the man began to laugh nervously.

“No need for that, young lady” he tried to assure me, but his big eyes running around the place and him gulping all the time, made her even more mad.

“I SAID-“ I began and shouted, “get off her I will without a hesitation call the police” I hissed at him. The man didn’t move at all and he kept looking expectant at my mom, as if she should stop me. She didn’t and looked into the ground.

“I’m not fucking kidding, you old man. Fuck off or I’ll make sure you’ll leave” I threatened and raised my fists, ready to fight him. I’m usually not violent, actually I’m a very calm person. But if you fuck with my family, friends or whoever I care about, I’ll suggest you get your burial papers done in a hurry.

The man tried with his hands gesturing me to calm down and he laughed fake.

“No need for violence, ma’am. I’ll go now” he said and tried to smile to me. I raised my eyebrows and he was out of the house in the matter of seconds. I heard the engine growl and when the sound of the car was gone, I hurried down to my mom, who was still sobbing. I laid my arms around her, just as the man had done a few minutes before.

“Mom, who was that man?” I asked my mom sternly and sent a worried look. She shook her head and began to cry again.

“Mom, I’m serious. Who was he and what did he do to you?” She looked into my eyes and I couldn’t see any spark of life in those beautiful blue eyes.

“I – I don’t have a choice. He have been after me in years and if I don’t do this I’ll might lose everything I love, including you” she said with a shaky and gentle voice.

“Mom, you’ll never loose me. You know that” I tried and cocked my head to the side. She sent me a small and thankful smile.

“Come here, let’s get you a cop of cocoa and you can tell me what’s going on” I said.

Whatever that man did and are trying to do with my mom is going to be over my dead body. I’ve never seen this sad in my life. Even at my dad’s funeral she looked even better than now. This man must’ve done something horrible and I’m going to find out, that’s for sure. 

Sometimes, I just feel like I could escape all this drama, but at this time I can't. There too much I have to take of. 


Yes, you all can hit me. I'm sorry I haven't been updating recently.. Or in while.. Sorry about that! My mind have been in a completly different place and I couldn't think of any ideas for the story.

I do hope that this chapter is going to satisfy you all!
