Fallen

Karla is just a normal girl, living a normal life, with a normal family, with normal friends. At least that's the person you see when you walk in the hallways of Kingston high school. But she's not the person she looks like when you walk past her in the corridor. Her inside is filled with pain and guilt. Everything she can remember from when she was younger was the constant pain, and watching her mother beeing abused by her father. When she was 5 years old, he left. And even though her mom hated him, her brain told her that she still loved him. Ever since then her mother have been down, and it's all Karlas fault. If she just hadn't been born non of this would've happened. Her life is a gloom until one day when she bumps into a sweet canadian boy that'll change her life forever.

20. The windbreak

"I think we lost him." I said and looked behind me. Before my head fully turned to look at Justin I was in his arms. That's when I really realized what had happened. I started sobbing loudly, crying, making his shirt even more wet. He stroked my hair. "Shh, it's okay." He whispered. I shook my head. "She's gone, she's actually dead." My arms wrapped around his waist. What would I ever do without him? I could barely breathe from all of my crying. "Hey, hey." He pulled apart and held my face in his hands. "It'll be okay, give it time. I'll always be here for you okay? Don't you ever forget that." My eyes followed the tear that slowly rolled down his cheek. I nodded. "Can we find some place to stay for the night?" He nodded and grabbed my hand. "Come on, I know a place." I walked with him until a saw a bit of wood through the trees. When we came closer I still couldn't see what it was. It was like a little wooden hut, in front of it there were stones in a ring, like a fire had been there. The little hut wasn't much, the roof was leaning and you could barely fit to sit in it without hitting your head in the ceiling. The front was completely open, like that wall had been ripped of. But I guess it was so you could sit close to the fire. At least it was a shelter from the ice cold rain, and it was so deeply in the forest that Jonah wouldn't find it. "It's a windbreak, we used to come here when I was in the boy scouts, we grilled and played in the woods." Inside the windbreak there was dry wood and paper. Just then I realized how cold I actually was. "Do you think we can set a fire?" I asked, surprised I could talk at all under the circumstances. He shook his head. "I don't think that's a very good idea, he would see the smoke." He didn't even need to say his name, I knew who he was talking about, could we really talk about someone else at this point? Yet again I nodded as an answer. "It's really cold Justin." I wrapped my arms around my body. He turned around to me. "I know, it's the wind and the rain. But now we have a protection from both." Could I do anything else but to nod? "Now come on." He grabbed my hand again and we crawled in to the tight space in the little windbreak. "You go in the furthest, you will have the most protection there." He said. I looked at him, a bit insecure. He nodded. "Go on." I was very cold. Once I had made myself, well I wouldn't say comfortable, but as good as it get's on a wooden floor, I felt Justin's arms wrap around my torso. We had to be really close to each other to keep the warmth between us, even though it was early summer, it wasn't very warm. I turned around so that I faced him. I gazed into his chocolate brown eyes as he stared into mine. "Why does life have to be so complicated?" I whispered. He sighed. "I'd like to believe that something good will come out of this, never say never right?" I smiled slightly. Wow he had actually made me smile. But that smile soon faded down. I looked down at our intertwined legs to hide my tears from him. Normally I wouldn't be embarrassed, but I was now for some unknown reason. "Hey." He grabbed my chin and lifted my head up to his. "I love you." I sobbed. "I love you too." Then his lips were on mine, it wasn't a very passionate kiss, but I think we both were to tired for that. When we pulled apart I buried my head into his chest. The rapid heartbeats that were so familiar now usually never failed to put me to sleep, but right now I had to much on my mind, too much to think, worry, about. "Justin?" I whispered, hoping he was still awake. "Mm?" He mumbled. "Can you sing for me?" I felt rude just asking that of him, but I couldn't bare the pain much longer. I felt his slight nod on the top of my head were his chin had rested. He sighed. "Across the ocean, across the sea, starting to forget the way you look at me now. Over the mountains, across the sky, need to see your face and need to look in your eyes. Through the storm and, through the clouds...." I felt my mind slowly drifting away to the soft sound of his voice. "Everything's going the be alright." He sang. And at that moment, I almost believed him.

 

A/N sorry this chapter was a little shorter than most, I'm very tired ._.
