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?


18. preparations

I stared at Alex as you used a towel to wipe the sweat from my face and arms, I could see his eyes wander to my bleeding torso every once in a while but he didn’t say anything about it which I was glad about. His nose and eyebrows were scrunched up in concentration. Alex is adorable in his cute and cocky way, but something about his attitude draws me in and the harder I try to fight it the weaker I feel. It's like my world is slowly starting to involve him and I sometimes find myself thinking about him. I really shouldn't let myself get close to him because last time I just got hurt when the guy found out about Clark. Clark, the man who ruined my life forever, he took my innocence, he made me realize how cruel the world is, and he made me lose my first love. He ruined a lot of my life, so now I live in fear of how he is going to ruin my life again. Out of all the things I could possible fear Clark has caused me to fear Love the most. The word Love freaks me out, people say how much they love each other but it never lasts, they fall out of love, they fight too much, one of them cheat, one of them moves away, they get tired of each other, or one of them die. Love doesn't last forever and someone gets hurt that's why I don't what to love someone again because it crushed my heart and I'm still trying to put all the broken pieces together. Alex pulls me out of my thoughts when he snaps his fingers in front of my face. "Rae.....Rainbow did you hear me?" Alex asked and I shook my head no. "I'm taking you to dinner tonight so be ready by 8:30. I have to go so don't forget" Alex said and handed me the towel. Alex walked over to the changing room and left  after he had gotten dressed. "Davey lets go home I have to take a shower and get ready because Alex is taking me to dinner. What should I wear? Where do you think he is taking me? ...... What..." Davy cut me off by covering my mouth with his hands and of course being the nice person I am I bit his hand and he instantly pulled it away from me.

We hurried back to the house and I ran up to my room to take a shower. I was now currently sitting in the room surrounding by my clothes wearing only my bra and underwear. Ugh what do I wear? Is it like a 'date' date or more of a 'friend' date? Why is this so hard I promised myself I wouldn't feel this way for a guy again because I don't want to fall in love again, but here I am struggling to find something to wear on a date with a guy that I'm pretty sure pities me. This is so complicated. I look at my alarm clock that says it is already 6:35. Dang, I don't have a lot of time left and I still haven't found clothes or done my hair. I looked through my clothes again and found a pair of black leggings that had gold studded crosses all over them. I found a white shirt with a black studded rose on it and the sides of the shirt were ripped. I decided to straighten my hair pin my bangs back out of my face. I put on mascara and I applied my bright red lipstick to my lips before looking at my reflection in the mirror. I looked like a happy person, but my story is so much more than meets the eye, I lived through hardships that most people would never even believe possible. I smile at the girl in the mirror and she smiles back, her eyes hold that sparkle they have been missing, she doesn't look broken on the outside even though I know she is as broken as they come. The girl in the mirror looks confident and strong. She is beautiful. She is the girl I want to be on the inside but she is so far away, she's just a figure of my imagination, she is my dream. My phone vibrates and I look down to see its a text message from Alex.

From: Asshole

Hey Rainbow I'm on my way so be ready:)

From: Rae

I'll be ready;)

I put on my black toms and looked in the mirror one last time. I grabbed my phone before hurrying downstairs. "Davy!....Davy?..... Davy!!!.... I need your opinion. So how do I look?" I asked and turned in a circle so he could see every angle. "Rae you look beautiful, but you should know that because you look beautiful everyday no matter what you are wearing." Davy said and I gave him a hug as the doorbell rang. My heart started to beat faster, Davy opened the door and let Alex in. "Umm hey Raelynn you look beautiful." I felt my face get red at his  words. "T-thanks Alex you look good too." I said and hid my face with my hair. We walked outside and Alex held the door open for me to get in. "So where are we going?" I asked and Alex looked at my as he drove down the road. "Well Rainbow, its a I can’t tell you until we get there. But I promise you will love it." Alex said and turned up the radio. My favorite song, Don't stop believing by Journey came on the radio so of course I had to sing.

"She's just a small town girl

Living in a lonely world

She took the midnight train going anywhere

Just a city boy, born and raised in South Detroit

He took the midnight train going anywhere

A singer in a smoky room

A smell of wine and cheap perfume

For a smile they can share the night

It goes on and on and on

Strangers, waiting up and down the boulevard

Their shadows searching in the night

Streetlight people, living just to feel emotions

Hiding somewhere in the night

Working hard to get my fill

Everybody wants a trill

Paying anything to roll the dice

Just one more time

Some will win, some will lose

Some where born to sing the blues

Oh the movie never ends

It goes on and on and on

Don't stop believing

Hold on to that feeling

Streetlight people

Don't stop believing

Hold onto that feeling

Streetlight people"

I looked up at Alex and he was smiling at me and my cheeks heated up again. "Rae your voice is amazing. Will you sing something else? Please!!!" Alex begged so of course I had to sing something else. I turned off the radio and started to sing a small part of Pumped up Kicks by Foster the People

"All the other kids with the pumped up kicks

You'd better run, better run, outrun my gun!

All the other kids with the pumped up kicks

You'd better run, better run, faster than my bullet.

All the other kids with the pumped up kicks

You'd better run, better run, outrun my gun!

All the other kids with the pumped up kicks

You'd better run, better run, faster than my bullet!"

"Ok I'm done singing now." I said and Alex laughed. "Its ok because we are here now." He got out of the car and came around to open my door for me. We were in the middle of the woods and the only light was from the full moon over our heads. "We have to walk a little ways but it is worth it this place is absolutely beautiful. Come on its this way!" Alex said and grabbed my hand to pull me off in the direction he said. After a couple minutes of walking he stopped and made me cover my eyes with my hand so I couldn't see yet. Man, I trust this guy a lot because for all I know he could be leading me over the side of a cliff and I will fall to my death. "Okay you can open your eyes now!!!" Alex yelled.
