I feel bad for shutting the door on my mom so I go home. I walk in the house but she's not there. I turn my phone on. "If you decide to come home... I'm over next door." I close my eyes rubbing my eye lids fuck. I open the door getting in my car. I drive to the nearest store getting flowers and then chocolates for my mom. Skittles for me. I get back in my car driving to Annabelles. I get out walking up. I knock on the door. The door opens. "Oh um. Hi." I step inside not asking if I can come in. "Hi Julie sorry I'm late." She smiles at me. "Oh its okay you're not that late." I hand her the flowers then my mom her chocolates. She glares at me. I just smile. I take a seat at the table. "Annabelle do you need help in there?" Julie looks over her shoulder. "No.. I'm okay." She comes out of the kitchen bringing food. "I- uh.. I made this. So. Yeah." My mom smiles at her. She goes to sit by my mom but notices there isn't a seat I roll my eyes as she sits down by me. "Wow this is really good." She smiles at my mom. "Thank you."
After dinner we all sit in the kitchen watching a movie. "Where's the bathroom?" Julie turns to me. "Can you show Calum where the bathroom is?" I nod getting up. I walk him to the back where the bathroom is and point. I turn away going to walk but stop. I turn around looking at Calum. "I.." He shakes his head. "No, I'm sorry I can't be like Luke Hemmings." I frown. "Calu-" He slams the door in my face. I look down walking out. Great..
I get up picking out my clothes. I decide to go with a misfit shirt and a black beanie that says "Neverland." I change out my lip ring and down the stairs. "Oh. Hi Bruce." He turns and smiles. "Hey. She had to leave early and I'm off today." I smile. "Cool." He nods. "Listen. I know it might be weird but.. Julie is your mom now.. So could you-" I cut him off. "I'm sorry. I just.. I can't." He looks down. "Alright kid. Just go to school." He nudges me playfully. I smile walking out. I'm almost at the end if the driveway when I hear a car horn. I turn to see Luke. "Hey." I walk up to his car. "Get in." I nod I climb in and we take off. He passes the school. "uh where are we going?" He smirks. "I want you to see something."
I pull up into the driveway. I get out of the car. "Come on." We get inside and I grab my guitar handing it to her. "I've saved for so long and I finally got it. My guitar." Her eyes widen. "It's beautiful." I smile. "Can you play?" I nod. "Will you play me something?" I smile. "Sure sit down." I sit down beside her. "The lights out. I still hear the rain these images that fill my head-" She stops me. "Jasey Rae?" I nod. "My... This was my... This was the only song my grandpa would listen to me sing." I look down. "What happened to him?" She sighs. "He.. He got hit by a semi.." my eyes widen. "Wow." She starts to tear up so I put my guitar down and hold her. "I'm so sorry." She wipes at her tears. We sit like that for a while. "Lets get to school before your mom finds out." I nod. We stand getting up. When we get there its almost second hour so we stall around until the bell rings. We walk into our second hour sitting down. I look over to Annabelle but she's looking at somebody else. Its Calum I roll my eyes. Its so obvious.
