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?


15. Reunited?

I sat on the couch and cried until my eyes hurt and the tears refused to fall from my eyes. I looked at my wrist and the blood had long since dried. My shirt had blood on it causing it to stick to my skin, I slowly pulled it up over my head. I went into the kitchen to get a glass of water to quench my burning throat. I poked my finger into the food that was sitting cold on counter. I decided to put it in the fridge because I was no longer hungry, plus Russell still hasn't come home so he must of found a new slut to stay at her house for a couple weeks. I heard a knock at the door so I walked over to answer it not knowing who it could possibly be. "Umm hello if you are looking for Russell he isn't here." I said, I was about to shut the door when I heard a relieved sound from the person so I decided to look at them. "OH MY GOSH!! Davy, I can't believe you came all this way." I pulled him into a hug. "Baby girl let me see your cuts. Do they hurt? Are they still bleeding? Oh fuck there is blood all over the place!" Davy screamed and I looked at the house to see my blood all over the floor from where I crawled because I didn't have the energy to walk. Davy grabbed my wrist looking at the cuts. I could tell he was worried. "Rae where did this bruise come from?" Davy asked as he looked at the cuts covering my ribs. "It was from when I fought that guy at the gym." I said. "I bet you showed those men up, but most importantly are you ok? And Rae don't lie to me." Davy said and he stared me right in the eyes because he  could always tell if I was lying or not if he was staring me in the eyes. "I'm ok Davy, I think. I'm just tired of everything my life has turned into, everything is so complicated. I just want to go back. I miss Kenny but if she was still here would I be who I used to be instead of who I am." I said. "Rae I know it still hurts but you promised. You owe it to Kenny to be strong. I'm here for you and I'm not leaving you again. I'll be your trainer again and I'm going to buy a house up here, but for now can I stay here?" Davy asked and I couldn't help but smile knowing he would still be here for me, I know it is selfish of me but he is the only good thing in my life. I nodded my head and smiled as he wrapped me into a hug again. "I love you baby girl and don't forget that!" Davy said and dragged me into the kitchen. "Since I'm going to assume you haven't ate yet I'm going to heat up some food for us to eat and while that is heating lets go clean you up." Davey said as he put the food in the oven to heat. He pulled me to my bathroom and made me sit down on the countertop while he carefully cleaned and bandaged all the cuts.We decided to watch a movie so I looked through the them until I found Mulan and put it in the player. I heard Davy start to lightly snore about halfway through the movie. This is the most at home I've felt since I got here, it's like this can finally be my home now because Davy is here.

I wake up to my phone ringing at 7 a.m. I look at the caller I.D. to see it is Russell calling. "Hey Rus what could you possibly want this early in the morning?" "Raelynn I was just calling to tell you that I'm moving out. I got a job out of state so I'm moving but I figured you wouldn't want to move with me. I know that you will be ok by yourself. I am coming home in a week to get my stuff but that will probably be the last time I am there. Oh and mom is still going to be sending money to the house for you. I gotta go bye." Russell said and hung up. Most people would be sad that both their mother and brother have left them alone but I felt kinda relieved knowing I didn't have to keep up the happy look for my brother so he wouldn't be so worried about me. Now I felt like a weight was lifted off m shoulders. "Davy. you can stay here until you find a place because it's just going to be me here from now on Russell got an out of state job so he is moving out. It's just me no more pretending that my family is still somewhat normal, its just me." I told Davy after I shook him awake. “Rae are you going to be ok without them?” Davy asked. "I have never felt better because now I don't have to pretend that I have a family it's just me….. me against the world with the help of you and possibly some new friends. I don't have to pretend that Clark never happened anymore. I can stop pretending that I'm still that innocent girl I once was." I laughed. "Well since you got me up this early on a Saturday why don't we go down to that gym and have a training session. I think it will be good for the both of us." Davy said, I nodded my head in agreement and hurried to my room to get dressed. I put on my bright orange sports bra, bright yellow Nike shorts,and a bright orange tank top. I put my hair into a messy bun and grabbed my black boxing gloves and black mouth guard.The clothing rubbed the thin bandages that covered my cuts making them sting a little. We walked to the gym,  everyone looked at us when we walked in. "Hey Jack, I'm back and you don't have to worry I brought my own trainer this time. Jack this is my long tie boxing trainer Davy and Davy this is the owner of this place Jack." I said and the two men shook hands. "Good luck with this girl, she took out my best boxer in the 3rd round yesterday." Jack said. "Don't worry Jack I can handle this girl. And do you guys run illegal matches, she can't fight in her weight class so she normally fights men." Davy said and waited for Jack to answer. "Umm yea we have illegal fights but they are held at a special gym. I'll get you some information." Jack said and walked off. "Ok Raelynn warm up and we will start with the bag then go to the ring." Davy said so I went over to one of the walls and started doing my warm ups. After I was done Davy joined me at the punching bag to work on my punches and my power. After about 30 minutes of the bag we moved on to the ring. I put my gloves on and put my mouth piece in while Davy removed his shirt and put on some boxing gloves and his mouthguard. "Ok Rae lets fight. Don't hold back take your anger out." Davy said. I struck him hard in the chest causing him to stumble back but he managed to regain his balance. Davy rushed me to the ropes and landed a couple good body shots. Davy knows not to take it easy on me and that this type of work his better for me mentally and physically. I landed a couple more good shots to his body before he pulled out his mouth guard and I stepped back away from him to show I acknowledged his pause. "That was pretty good Rae but don't forget that you are facing men and they are going to have more experience than you.  This state is known for its illegal boxing matches so these men know what they are doing and they are going to figure out that when you get pissed it makes you an easier target if they can touch you so you either need to make your moves faster or you will have to be able to control your anger." Davy said and I nodded my head in acknowledgement. "Rae I missed you, lets call it a day for training and go hang out.  And all you guys had better leave my baby girl alone,  if you hurt her you will have to face me and most likely her. So I suggest not pissing her off or she will beat the shit out of you." Davy said and put his arm around my waist.
