Alex's life falls apart. She goes on tour with her cousin and his band. Then she falls in love. Life isn't easy but with someone to go through it with, its easier to get through alive.


2. Chapter 2

I sat on my couch with my bags beside me. I was waiting for Ashley, my cousin, to come and get me. He was the only family I had left. My dad had committed suicide when I was five. And the rest of my family either had some kind of grudge against my mom and didnt want anything to do with me or was dead.
I was going to live with Ashley in his house and go on tour with him and his band, Black Veil Brides. I listened to their music before and I loved them.
My cat, Jasper, jumped on my lap. I gently stroked his fur while I sat, deep in thought.
The knocking at my door woke me from my trance. I stood and answered the door.
Ashley and Andy stood at my door. I assumed both of them were there to get all of my stuff.
I hadnt seen Ashley in about 2 years. I tried not to stare at Andy, I had always had a crush on him, but he had a girlfriend.
"Hey" Ashley said.
"Hi" I tried to smile and hugged him. Anyone who knew me well knew I had changed since that night. I dont know what exactly changed me; Witnessing my own mother's murder, or killing a man.
I tried to help them put my stuff in the truck but Ashley insisted that I shouldnt do anything. So I helped with what i could and went to sit in the truck. About 20 minutes later, They settled into the seats of the truck. I sat in the middle, so they sat on either side of me.
Ashley tried to make small talk, but i wasnt in a talking mood considering everything happened a couple nights before.
"So how old are you now?" he asked me.
"I'll be 18 in a couple of weeks." I answered.
Jasper sat in the cat carrier between my feet. He kept meowing so I stuck my fingers between the bars to calm him.
"How's school?" Ashley asked, obviously trying to take my mind off of everything.
It wouldn't be that easy.
"Look, I am seriously not in the mood for any of this small talk crap. So if you dont mind I would prefer not to talk period." This staement was true, but school was a touchy subject with me.
I was bullied really bad and my mom was the only one that knew I was suicidal.
"What happened to that sweet little girl I knew a couple years ago?" Ashley asked, trying to be funny.
I simply looked at him and said, "She's gone." I wonder if he could hear the hollowness in my voice? See the misery in my eyes?
Maybe I was just that good of an actor to where I could hide it from everybody.
