'Hey Chloe, remember when we were younger and we used to say we had ghost friends...' I say checking my phone.
Chloe and I got ready and jumped in bed at 1:00 am and it's now 3 in the morning.
'Yeah how could I forget, we were absolute retards...' she stops talking for a moment. 'Whats the time?'
'3, we've been talking non-stop for 2 hours.' I say looking at the darkness that surrounds her room.
There was a few moments of silence, I thought maybe she has decided to go to sleep so I close my eyes.
'I miss my dad.' she says, her voice becoming shakier at every word.
'I miss him too, he was a great man.' I say starting to tear up.
I could hear Chloe starting to cry, I roll over and hug her. 'I'm sorry about everything.'
She hugged me back. 'It's not your fault.'
'I know, but I still cant help feeling guilty for it.' I say.
I hear her sigh and I let go of her. 'I'm going to bed now ok, I'll see you in the morning.'
'Yeah, see ya in the morning.' I say and close my eyes.
'JOELLE HURRY YOUR ARSE UP! WE ARE GOING HOME!' my dad yells at me.
Chloe and I are in her room, we know that our dads have been drinking because they started arguing and they are closer then what me and Chloe are. My dad always scared me when he was drunk, he scared my mum too... Ryan, Chloe's dad and my dad are inseparable.
'JOELLE! IF YOU DON'T HURRY UP YOU'LL REGRET IT!'
'FINE! I'm bloody coming..' I say back.
I quickly pack my stuff up and the door quickly opens and slams against the wall.
'JOELLE I SAID HURRY UP!' my dad says. I can hear Pam and Ryan coming to Chloe's room.
'She's nearly finished packing.' Chloe says to my dad. He looks at her as if she were a piece of meat, within a few seconds she was on the ground. He must have hit her.
'OI! WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH YOU! YOU CAN'T JUST HIT MY DAUGHTER!' Ryan screams to my dad.
He starts walking towards Ryan and both Pam and him take a few steps back. I grab my stuff and say good-bye to Chloe and quickly walk towards them all.
'Dad I'm ready now can we go?' I ask.
He pushes me back then runs at Ryan. He pushes Ryan until they were both out the front, Chloe, Pam, and I closely followed. My dad pushes him until he pushes him onto the road, Ryan falls and at that exact moment a car comes speeding down the road. A road that is usually is empty now has a man, a car, and a lot of blood.
I woke up panting, I didn't want to relive those few moments. I look at my surroundings, the curtains were pulled open and the sun was shining. I hear Chloe mumble something that I couldn't quite make out, then she wakes up.
'Good morning.' she says rubbing her eyes.
I don't answer.
'Are you ok?' she asks.
'I just had a dream, it was ab-'
'I had the same dream.' she said.
'I am so sorry about everything. I don't understand how you can have me here after everything that's happened.' I say.
'Joelle, it's because I love you, mum and I love you ok. It's just your dad that we well, you know don't like because he's the one who did it ok, not you.' she says.
I don't say anything, I just nod my head and smile.
'Breakfast is ready girls!' Pam yells from what must be the kitchen.
We both race to the kitchen to find that there is pancaked laid down before us.
'Thank-you.' we both say in unison.
'Hey mum.' Chloe says.
'Yes dear?' Pam responds.
'Can we go to a party on Saturday?' Chloe asks.
Pam looks at us and carefully puts her fork back on her plate. 'What?' she asks.
