Alex Who?

Raelynn Jo Townslee is new in town and she must start at a new high school in the middle of her Junior year. She doesn't care what people think about her and its that attitude that always lands her in trouble. Every since Kenny (Kennedy) died she gave up on the world and she stopped giving a fuck about what happens around her. Raelynn has had multiply run-ins with the law, she loves the adrenaline that fighting gives her. And her family is almost as fucked up as her. What happens when someone threatens to tear down her walls? What happens when she is all alone?


16. Hanging out


"So where is the best place to hang out around here?" Davy asked  grabbing my hand. "Umm I know there is an ice cream shop down the road, there might have been a Starbucks on that road too." I replied. "We can go get a Starbucks and then go to the ice cream shop also." Davy said sounding like an excited little kid. People stare at us as we walked down the road hand-in-hand, because Davy is 20 years older than me but who cares what people think he is my best friend in the world. "Can we go to the mall afterwards because I need to get some more clothes? I'm thinking about dropping out of school,  there is no point I’m not  going to college and I already pretty much have a career with boxing…."  Davy didn't look pleased with the idea of me dropping out but he knows how I hate when people try to control my life. "Baby girl are you sure you want to drop out. You can't plan on spending your whole life as a boxer."  Davy said. “I plan to keep boxing until the day that I die in the ring, I want to box until I'm gone, besides there is nothing else I can really do with my life. Because my anger gets in the way but boxing I can us my anger to hurt other people. You know just as well as I do that its the only thing I'll be able to do and I don't need an high school education for it. And I don't have to hide my life anymore because my brother and mom are gone now so I can do what I want now." I said as we walked into Starbucks. Davy ordered some weird coffee and I ordered a pumpkin spice latte. We sat down at a table while we were waiting for them to get our drinks done and just my luck Alex walked in and looked right at me, he was with a girl. I kinda felt betrayed but I'm not sure why it not like I have feelings for him, if anything I hate his guts and he hates mine. But still there was a sick feeling in my stomach as the girl whispered in his ear while he talked to the cashier. Luckily the man serving drinks called mine and Davy's name so we got our drinks and rushed outside. "That was Alex, the guy that gets on my nerves faster than anyone else but when I saw that girl with him…. I kinda felt betrayed." I rushed out hoping Davy didn't hear the last part. "Baby girl I think you like that Alex kid no matter how much you don't want to admit it you have some feelings for him or you wouldn't have felt that way." Davy said lightly touching my cheek. "Davy I can't feel that way about him, he is rude and cocky and he just.....ugh he is just so hot and he is so sweet to his friends and he calls me rainbow." I said.  Davy looked at me with a knowing smile on his lips. "See Rae you have feelings for that guy and he has feelings for you. I know you were focused on the girl but you should have seen his face when he saw you leaning on my shoulder. He looked like he wanted to come over to us and make me move away from you, he was jealous of me because I was with you and not him. He is watching us right now out the window of Starbucks." Davy said and I looked back to see Alex's eyes glued to me. I blushed and walked into the ice cream shop that Davy was holding open for me.

Raelynn is so frustrating so I decided to call up a slut from school and hook up with her, She wanted to go to Starbucks first, but  being my luck when we walk in Rae is sitting at a table with her head laying on an older man's shoulder and she is smiling up at him like a lovesick puppy. This can't be happening, I hate seeing Rae with that guy and the girl whispering in my ear is disgusting to me, I used to e able to hook up with random girls and not care. I think that I’m starting to like that annoyingly beautiful rainbow haired girl and she is sitting right there flirting with an older man, and she hasn't even realized that I'm here yet. Finally she looks up at us but her eyes don't focus on me and instead they focus on the slut beside me, I think her name was.. Jessica? I'm gonna call her Jessica. I just want to push Jessica off me and go over there and beat the shit out of the man sitting with Rae but I have to control myself because I don't want her to think I'm weak or that I'm trying to protect her. So instead we get our coffees and I sit u at a window seat so I can watch Rae. She walks out with that asshole and they cross the street to the ice cream shop. She looks back at me once and laughs at something funny the man says before she walks into the shop. That should be me walking into the shop with her and she should be laughing at stuff I say not that asshole but I guess I should be calling myself the asshole because that's all I have done when she was anywhere near me. I haven't given  her a reason to like me or even a reason to want to be near we long enough to laugh at something I say. She drives me insane because she is so perfect yet she is so fucked up. She is amazing, no girl in this world could compare to her, she is so close to me yet so out of reach. Its like she is just a ghost that haunts me because I want her so bad but when I try to get her she isn't there. She hides herself from everyone, but from the look in that man's eyes he knows everything about her and I want that to be me. I want her to let me in and I would promise to protect her no matter what and I would do everything to keep that promise. All I know is I'm going to start trying harder because today has made me realize just how badly I want that beautiful and stubborn girl. It kinda scares me just how strong i already feel for her since I’ve only known her for a few days but she is different she knows what she wants out of life and she isn't going to let anyone hold her back. I'm going to make Rae want me as bad as i want her, from this day on she is mine and mine only.

When that boy walks in i can tell that Rae has feelings for him even if she can’t, I can feel the emotions that she tries to hide, i mean I'm close to this girl and I have learned to read her like an open book. Most people couldn't figure out one thing about her, her mom and brother never learned that she is a boxer and they didn't even know half of her story. But at one point I was a complete stranger to her now I'm her best friend and I know everything about this messed up angel. I look at the guy and he looks like he is about to come over here and say something to me because Rae's head is still laying on my shoulder and he doesn't like that, its pretty clear on his face. But he doesn't push the slut off him as she whispers to him. I can feel his eyes burning holes in the back of my head as walk with Rae across the street to the ice cream shop but he doesn't follow us because he isn't man enough to come say something to me or admit his feelings to Rae. And that's where he is screwing up because Rae won’t make the first move if anything she will act like she hates him, she doesn't let people into her life easily. I couldn’t believe she let me in, she told me the stories about Kenny and I personally saw how messed up she was about the death of that girl, Rae was devastated and I didn't even know Kenny or Rae before Kenny's death. Rae is a girl that has been hurting most of her life. She can’t trust people and i don't blame her, she is a strong girl to be able to survive all this shit she has been through. I hate to admit it but this girl is stronger than me, I wouldn't have been able to deal with everything she has been through, I would have given up. But Rae didn't and that makes her all the more strong, she is perfect and that's why it is my job to protect my messed up baby girl.
