How did I get here?

Over the course of the last year, Reed Johnson's life has made some interesting twists and turns, and sadly, very few of them were for the better. Now, to get her away from the scenes that provoked her post-traumatic stress, her father has chosen to move the family back home to Nazareth in Pennsylvania. Both old and new friends quickly start to make an impact on her life, and pretty soon, Reed is caught up in a web of drama while dealing with a lot of stuff herself. With an already fragile mental health, who knows how she'll end up?

A/N Augusta this one is yours!

(Reed's POV)

I walked in the doors of the school and headed for my locker to get my books for American History. But on the way I saw something that made me tremble with relief. Tim was standing by his own locker putting away some stuff. He turned and I saw a new bruise on him only this time it was on his neck. The one on his cheek had faded and was now almost the normal color of his skin. But this one I could tell was brand new. I ran over and hugged him so tight he squirmed. I pulled back. "Hey! You're back!" I shouted to him... 'No shit Sherlock? ' I thought to myself. "I was so worried." "I'm back. And I'm ok." He said but it sounded more like it was to himself than to me. He pulled me in for a kiss. My hands snaked around his neck and he pulled me closer by the hip keeping his hands there. It lasted longer than I had expected but that was just perfect with me. I hadn't seen him for far too long. We heard several wolf whistles and "GET A ROOM!" 's but we kept going for a while. The bell rung and we were forced to stop. Before I walked to class I pecked him on the lips. I headed down the hall and around the corner. Very soon I was in the classroom, ready to endure yet another lesson of Mr. Banther spitting all over my papers when he pronounced the letter 'P'.

(Alex's POV)

I was standing by my locker getting out some books. I heard Reed say 'Hey!" And turned around to answer when I saw that she was talking to Tim Dahl. I had heard shady stuff about that guy. Why was Reed talking to him? I thought to myself ' I swear to God if he does anything to her...' She was saying something else but I don't remember what. Because right at that moment my world stood still. He kissed her! And worst of all she kissed him back. And it didn't look like it was the first time. Anger rose up inside me. Every second passing I got more and more pissed. It didn't exactly help that people were telling them to get a room and whistling at them. It felt horrible to watch. Like every time one of them moved just the tiniest bit, a little piece of my heart was being torn off and burned. But for some reason I couldn't stop watching. I was compelled to keep watching it. And more and more anger just piled up inside me. Reed finally left and pecked him on the lips before going around the corner. As soon as she was out of sight I walked over there. I don't know why I did this but I did. I punched Dahl right in the face. He didn't even fight back. He just stared at me in horror like I was a monster. And who knows? Maybe at that moment I was.
