"Beth, can you come down here?" my mom yelled me from downstairs.
"Wait, just a sec" I yelled back from my room. Just about a minute after it, I came out from my room and run down on the stairs. I found my mom in the kitchen, she was cooking dinner. "What?"
"I need you to go to the grocery to buy onions and apples" she said from the back of her head.
"Why not Jackson just do it? he can just drive to the grocery" I whined.
"No, he already did the grocery last week. It's your turn now"
"But mom, I have a lot of work tonight" I was still whining.
"Bethany Margaret Moore! Go to The Grocery right now, and stop whining!" my mom raised her voice because she was annoyed with my whine.
I groaned, I walked up to my room. I changed my pajamas to white tank top, black skirt, and stocking. I took my denim jacket, unbutton it, and took my small brown purse with phone, earphone, and money in it. I walked down the stairs and walked out of the house. I plugged my earphone and put it in my ears. I set the song to Dark Horse by Katy Perry because I'm in love with it.
The Grocery is 4 blocks away from my house, so I had to take a bus or I could just walk but it took half an hour to get there. When I arrived to The Grocery, I bought apples, onions, lemon tea, and hot cheetos for my snack at night. When I'm done, I went to the cashiers.
"Hi" the cashier girl greeted.
"Hi" I smiled back.
"How's your day?"
"Kind of rough" I remember what happen to me and Jackson, Megan, Steven, and my mom.
"Life sucks right?"
"Tell me about it"
"hahaha, well that will be $21.56"
I took out my money from my purse and pay for it.
"Thank you, have a nice night" she gave me that sweet smile again.
I nodded and walked out of The Grocery. Suddenly the temperature drops. The weather became cold, I gripped my denim sleeves really strong and walked faster to the bus stop. There was no bus right this time, I had to wait for about 15 minutes until the bus come. It was so quiet and there's nobody around this area except for 2 drunk guys laughed for no reason. They walked towards me, still laughing.
"Hey, girl" one of them called me from behind me.
I turned around and they were still laughing, one guy with a messy dirty blonde hair and one guy with brown spike hair they also held a beer in their hand."Hi... can I help you with something?"
"Yeah, can you open your shirt. Hahaha" the blonde said.
"Are you crazy?" I raised my voice.
"Woo.. feisty girl" the brown hair guy said, "maybe I can help you to do it" he started to walk forward to me but I stepped back. He grabbed my denim jacket and tried to pull it down from my body. I moved around to keep my denim jacket stayed on my body.
Somebody... help me please...
"Leave her alone" I heard a guy say it but I can barely see him because of the darkness.
"Someone is trying to be the heroes, hahaha" the blonde left me on the ground and started to walk towards the guy who was trying to save me.
"Let's get him" they walked towards him and the blonde hair guy swung his fist to the guy, but he missed it. The guy punch and kick the drunk guys until they ran away.
"Are you okay?" he ran towards me.
I could feel my body still shaking, but I pretend everything is okay, "Ye-yeah I-I'm f-fine" he helped me got up. My eyes started to get clearer than before. I could see his face now, "Matt?" I was shock.
"Yeah, are you sure you're alright?" he look panicked.
"I'm sure, Matt"
"Do you want me to drive you to the hospital?"
"But you're still shaking" from his last word, I can't help it anymore.
I could feel my tears ran down to my cheeks. Immediately, he brought me into a hug, let me cried on his shoulder. "I'm scared... I'm scared, Matt" I said between the crying.
"Shh... Everything is going to be fine. I'm here, I'm here" he said that over and over again. I don't know why, but how he said it make me felt calm.
After a couple minutes of sobbing and hugging, he decided to take me home. In the car, I stared at the window and stayed silent. I could feel that he was looking at me over and over again, but I didn't want to turn around because I knew I will cry again if I started to talk again. 5 minutes of the ride with a silence, we finally arrived at my house. He opened my car door and gave me the groceries. Before I went inside my house, I turned around.
"Matt" he turned around."Thank you" I stopped for a couple seconds, "for everything" I gave him a small smile. He nodded and went inside his car and drove away. I went inside and put the groceries on the counter.
"Beth, is that you?" my mom said from the kitchen. I wiped my eyes, to make sure there's no tears or red eye to make her suspicious.
"Yes, it's me mom"
She walked out of the kitchen, "where have you been? You should be back half an hour ago" she put her hand on her hips.
"Sorry, I rode the wrong bus" I lied.
She took the groceries and went back to the kitchen. I walked up to my room and closed the door. I leaned to my room door, slipped down, and bend my knees over my chest, I cried again. I wished that Matt was here again to calm me down, but that's impossible because he's not a superhero that could fly back and forward just to calm me down. There's no sound inside my room, only filled with my gasped voice that I let out when I was crying. The room felt really dark and it scared the hell of me. I wished he's here.
