Tori Ortega was ordinary. She didn't ask for much, even though her parents could have bought the moon. She didn't ask for a boyfriend or really mess around with boys, until Issac. She didn't ask for any of what happened to her to happen to her, but once one bad thing happens, it spirals out of control.


8. Fight

“This is all your fault” Harriet remarked.

“How is this my fault mother? All they did was ask me what I wanted to do with my life and I answered honestly. Is that a crime” Tori said quietly.

“Did you just sass me” Her mother barked.

“No, Mother, I’m sorry” Tori said trying to dig herself out of a hole.

“You are so disrespectful, I raised you better than this. I hope Cora isn’t hearing this! I don’t want her to learn anything from you” her Mother screamed at her.

“I’m sorry I have disappointed you Mom” Tori said fighting back the tears.

“No, you are not gonna guilt your way out of this. GO TO YOUR ROOM” Harriet yelled.

Tori didn’t say anything. Anything she said could and would be used against her, or twisted into something she never said. She walked up to her room with tears, streaming down her face.

It was about 11:50 when Tori heard a quiet knock on her second story window. She walked over to her balcony, cautiously and opened the double doors. It was Issac.

“What are you doing here” Tori asked?

“Well, I forgot my jacket and I needed to come and get it” Issac said sounding like an awful liar.

“Yeah, sure” Tori said through a laugh.

“Well, it’s not totally a lie. I came back earlier to get my jacket and I heard you and your moms fight. It sounded intense. So when I saw all of  the lights except yours off, I climbed the tree so I could see if you were okay. And I also left my jacket” Issac said.

“So you waited almost 3 hours outside my house to see if I was ok” Tori asked not believing it?

“Well, no, not exactly. I ran to KFC to get us some chicken, I was hungry and wanted to have a snack. But I didn’t eat it yet. I was saving it for when I talked to you” Issac confessed.

Tori didn’t know what to say. She just stood there looking amazed that he had gone through all the trouble to see if she was okay, and get her fried chicken. Before she could respond Issac was setting out the small feast on her floor.

“So are you ok, about the whole fight with your Mom and everything” he asked.

“Yea, normally our fights aren't that bad, but this one was different. I know she has said those things about me before just not to my face” Tori admitted.

“Wait? Your mom has said that before”Issac asked astonished.

“Yea, and worse, once she said that she that I was the biggest failure of her life, and that it was to late to fix me” she said. She started to cry but stopped herself.

Issac, who was not only astonished that her Mother had said these things to and about her, but angry. Why would someone want to hurt her? Why would someone say all of those awful things about this girl that was so innocent, and kind?

“Issac” she asked through shaky words.

He didn’t say anything, all he did was engulf her in a hug. That’s when she lost it.
