How to Love (short story) finished

17 years and Alex still cant love. Ever since her dad left her when she was five, her life has gone down in a spiral. Her mom was depressed and was always drunk then married Todd a ex-criminal. Her mom died when Alex was 12 from cancer and her step-dad did horrible things to her. So when she breaks after 5 years of abuse what will happen when she goes to a new school and the most popular boy in her school Connor notices her and ask question? What happens when he sees the two large scars on her neck? What happens when she starts loving again? Will it be a crash and burn? Or will she learn How to Love? What happens when she finds something out that breaks here? Will she live through it? Or make the ultimate decision of her life?


1. Getting ready to go

Alex pov

"Alex get down here NOW!" My monster of a step-dad Todd yells throwing a glass bottle at the wall. My eyes start getting teary so I bite my lip and walk down stairs. "Slow bitch." He says staring at me. "Well Alex we are moving to just outside Death Valley in California. It is a very small city so you know...." and I do- its because he doesn't want to go back to jail but he keeps stealing items he claims he needs like jewelry and cars. I nod and he says "pack we are leaving tomorrow in the morning. Right now we live in New Mexico so it wont be a long drive. I go up and put my clothes and little possessions in my suitcase. I lay in bed wondering if this was going to be fine- this time it feels different. ****************************I wake up at 6 and remember what today is. I jump up and dress in a tight white tee and some black high waisted shorts put on some red vans. Went to the bathroom and brushed my teeth and left my hair how it was- it was wavy and looked terrible when I brushed it. I put on foundation eyeliner on top and bottom on my eyes and bright red lipstick on. I smiled at my reflection- my favorite part of my body was my ice-blue eyes with gray around the iris. Even though I know I am ugly I have always loved my eyes! I walk down stairs and make breakfast for me and Todd which included cercal- Im not the best cook but I can make a mean bowl of cereal! I put our stuff in the car and wake up Todd-he isn't worried about me running away because I know he would find me- I tried before but it only led to terrible things.........



I know it seems that im coping Taylor Swift but I have always loved the style I know I have not written much but that's going to change off grounding, 2.its FINALLY SUMMER..well tomorrow! Well bye love oh and just so you know Im not really big on authors notes so I probably will only have 2 or 3 more! <3
