13. Confrontation

I woke up later in the day by the door being slammed shut. I slowly got up, taking my baseball bat and heading towards the stairs. I hear sounds of giggling and laughing as I creep slowly down the stairs. If these are some thieves, they're really bad. I look into the kitchen only to see my dad and his my new girlfriend..? What's her name again? Something along the lines of Marcy and Carry.

Anyways I try to go back upstairs unnoticed but i"m already caught by my father. 

"Alie" I cringe at that name. That was the name my father called me, back when things were good. It reminded me of how bad things were now , but most of all it reminded me of my mother. She had come up with it.


I was five, and my sister, her name was Rachel, was eight. It was halloween and we decided to match. After a while of arguing we agreed on a ladybug. (The costumes looked rsomething like these

We still had school and everyone would dress up. It was so fun and was one of the time where I was actually happy. Later on as the sun was beginning to set everybody started trick-or-treating. We went with a group. It was my best friend Anna, who was a butterfly. (The costume looked something like this And Rachel's best friend Sam, who was a bumblebee. (The costume looked like this Both their mom's had come with us. We were called the bug crew. 

I remember we walking after hitting a few houses and I fell. 

"Oww, mommy help me." I cried out, tears starting to flow. She quickly rushed to my aid.

He turned to Anna and Sam's mom telling them to continue and we'd meet up with them.

"Mommy I want to stay and help. I can't just leave her here." Rachel said. 

"Rach, just go. Alexis will be fine." mom mom said to her. After that Rachel agreed. She's always been very protective of me. 

After mom my checked me, making sure I was okay and nothing was broken, we went to catch up with the rest of them. I had a small scratch on my knee, so my mother carried me.

"Mommy" I said said quietly.

"Yeah baby" my mom replied.

"How come I don't have a nickname? Rachel has one." I stated.

"What do you mean?" she replied.

"Well, Rachel's nickname is Rach. I'm just Alexis. I need a nickname too." i said.

"Hmm" she said thinking.  "How about Alie."

"That's perfect" I exclaimed excitedly. 

After that she always called my Alie. Soon my father and Rachel did. And so did everybody else.

~Flashback Ends~

I continued walking, acting like  I didn't here him and went up to my room. He followed me and I just stared at him. After a short glaring contest, he finally spoke.

"Look, you're mad at me now," he started but I cut him off.

"I didn't realize that. Thanks for the heads up" I said sarcastically.

"Alie please listen." he pleaded.

"My name is Alexis" I said through gritted teeth.

"Ok. I know you're mad at me, but" I cut him off again.

"Butts are for sitting." I smirked, knowing this would anger him.

"Alexis you are making this much more difficult than it needs to be." he said, raising his voice. I just blankly stared at him. 

"Alexis, you're mad at me now but over time you would realize, I did what's best for you." he said.

"Best for me. Seriously, that's all you could come up with. An I'm sorry for keeping this secret, would have been nice." I said.

"Listen to me" he yelled, getting frustrated. 

"No, you listen to me" I yelled back. "You know what you did was wrong you're just trying to make it seen like it was right. Well, it wasn't. You had no right to keep this secret from me. You're all I have left in this world. You know Rachel would hate you for this." I all but yelled.

"How dare you say that to me" he said, slapping me hard.

Tears quickly sprung to my eyes but I would not let them fall.  

"Mom would hate you too." I said quietly, before running out the room. I grabbed my keys from the table by the door and ran into my car. My father just stood at the door, not even trying to get me to stay. 

I drove out to a field. And parked my car. Behind the field was some woods. In the woods was a cottage. It consisted of a 3 rooms. A living room and kitchen combined, a bedroom and a bathroom. It belonged to Brad and he had showed it to me once. He went there when ever he wanted to get away. 

I sat on the small couch, finally letting the tears fall. It soon got late, too late to leave. I didn't want to get attacked. I scrolled through my contacts until it landed on Brad dialing his number. It rung but soon went to voice mail.  I tried again, this time he picked up. (B-Brad, A-Alexis)


A: Brad it's me. I need you to come to the cottage now.

B:What happened, is something wrong?

A:Kinda, just come. I'll explain later.

B:okay I'm on my way.

I hung up the phone and waited. I heard shuffling soon, so I ran to the bedroom. I hid under the bed, being caution, just in case. I heard the door open and close and I could see Brad from the open bedroom door. He stood by the the couch and I came out from under the bed. I ran into his arms and hugged him.He was knocked back by my force but hugged me back. After a while he pulled away first. He look at me, hold my face in both his hands. My face was tear stained face and then anger crossed his face. 

"Who did this to you?" he question, his hands dropping. I think he was referring to my bruise. 

"My dad" I said looking down. 

He put his finger to my chin, pulling my face up to look at him again. He studied my face for a few seconds before pulling me into a tight hug. That was when I broke down again. He pulled me to the couch and sat down. I sat next to him placing my head in his lap.

"What happened."he asked. 

That was when I told him everything. I told him about my mother's death.


I was nine and Rachel was twelve. My mom was in the hospital for her cancer treatment. She had breast cancer and the doctor said she had 2-3 months to live. We were determined to spend every minute with her. Everyday after school, we walked to the hospital to stay with. Our dad would come later on and spend about two hours with us and then we had to go home. 

It was the weekend and we were visiting. 

"I need to use the bathroom" i said getting up and leaving. 

When I came back there was doctors everywhere and Rachel stood outside the room crying.

"What happened?" i asked, starting to panic.

"Mommy, shes,she's dead" Rachel said through her cries. 

I just stood there staring at her, shocked. I never cried until about a week after. Realization finally hit me and I knew she was gone forever. 

~Flashback Ends~

"Wow. I'm sorry." brad said. "But who's Rachel?"

"She was my sister." I stated


 We were very close. She was usually always with me. When she started high school in ninth grade, I was only in in fifth grade.  That's when i Started to notice she was become sad and starter to distance herself from me. The next year was worse. I was 12 and Rachel was 15. I was just starting middle school and she was always so sad. 

Then one day she came home from school crying. 

"What''s wrong" I asked as soon as I saw her.

"Just leave me alone" she said and went to her room.

It was dinnertime and I went to call her. I found her in her bathroom on the floor. Blood leaking from both her arms. I told my dad and he called 9-1-1 and they got here shortly. When they got there and examined her, they pronounced her dead. She had lost too much blood. I started crying and yelling at people saying she wasn't dead. Even though I knew it wasn't true. 

I soon learned that she was bullied from 8th grade. For those three years I knew nothing about it. Then and there i vowed never to become like the girl who bullied my sister.

~Flashback Ends~

"I'm sorry" Brad stated once again. 

"It's okay." I replied.

The whole time he had sat there listening to me speaking,while running a soothing had throgh my hair. Only talking when it was necessary. She watched me cry and calmed me. By the time I was finished it was almost three in the morning. it made me feel closer to him. Almost like the the brother, I wish I could have had.

"I'm so sorry for wasting your time" I said.

"You were'nt  wasting my time" he said "How about we call it a night  and go to sleep?" he asked. 

"Yeah" i said. 

We got up and headed to the bed. I lay down and he lay next to me, wrapping a protctive arm over me.

"Good night" I mumbled before drifting to sleep.
