Keeping My Distance

Lalvia Monroe is a girl that has been badly bullied by some people at school, she self-harms and cry's her self to sleep every night. She has also, been getting weird dreams and visions by her grandmother that has passed away five years ago. She has been getting warnings by her grandmother that she needs to leave but, when a new man enters her life… she's not so sure she wants to leave.


13. Sorry?



                                                   Lalvia's POV.

I felt arms pick me up bridal style and sat me down on a bed.

     "I'm sorry Lalvia," he muttered. I was to tired to respond and let myself sleep. I heard his footsteps walking away. Why was he sorry? I kinda feel bad cause now he is going to feel guilty for just taking up for me. I felt safe around Conner. I was getting to close to him and that needs to stop.

    I got out of bed and walked to the living room to see what I defiantly did not want to see. Conner was leaning against the recliner with a tear struck face with his eyes closed like he has fallen asleep. I smiled a little bit but, only because he looked cute when he slept. Snap out of it, Lalvia. "Conner," I muttered. He moved a little in his sleep. I walked up to him and wrapped my arms around him. "It's not your fault, Conner," I muttered. 

    I felt arms hugging me back and I smiled. 

    Conner was cute in his own way. He has a bad boy type of personality but, he actually is innocent. 

     "I'm sorry, Lalvia," he stated.

     "It's a mistake Conner. You were protecting me."

     "No. Yea, I'm sorry for killing, Walter but, it's not that."

     "Then what is it?" I asked. I pulled back from him and stared in his eyes.

     "I-" he stopped like he couldn't find the words. He turned his head from me and stared blankly at the wall. He crossed his arms making his muscles pop out even more. "I'm sorry for putting you in more danger, Lalvia."

    What is that supposed to mean? I thought to myself. I thought I felt safe around Conner but, now he's just scaring me. 

     "You can't be around me anymore. I have to quit this job. Maybe he can hire someone else to fix the roof. Stay with your dad. Don't talk to anyone you don't know, alright? Your in danger right now, Lalvia," he stated keeping eye contact with me.

     I suddenly felt anger boil up inside me--and I don't know why. "You coward! What? Your just going to leave me cause, someone is going after me! Do you even care about me?"

   "Lalve, listen."

    "No, I'm tired of listening to you. Just leave I don't want you around me!"
