Broken and Scarred

Homeless and no where to go, Rose has been on her own for a few years now. The LA streets are what she calls home. Until her life starts to take a ride for the better.


11. Silence

*A Week Later*
~Kristy's POV~
It’s been a really awkward past week. Ever since everyone told their backstories we've all been really quiet. Rose holes up in our room or in Mason's room and just reads nonstop, listening to music on her iPod touch. She's been listening to a lot of The Summer Set, Panic! At the Disco, and Avril Lavigne.
Laurel holes up in Alex's room and Alex and her play a lot of video games. Lily has told me that's what they do because they let her join sometimes. When Lily isn't there they most likely share a few kisses. But that's just what I think.
As for Lily, she asks Mason or James to take her out to see the dogs and will spend hours with them. She also will help me cook.
That's how I get away, by cooking a lot. James helps sometimes, but usually ends up trying to distract me with kisses. I'm usually not in the mood, and he can sense that and stop.
Mason has seemed kind of quiet also. He hangs around Rose a lot of the time. He's the only one who gets to be near her. He is also the only one who can get her out of one of her moods. She treats him like shit at times, but he powers through that and helps her though her problems. I'm so glad he got through to her and is helping her with her troubles. It makes the house seem normal again.
There's never going to be a normal atmosphere in this house. There will be a new normal, and we'll just have to deal with that. In time everything will be better. Time heals all wounds. All kinds. At least, I hope it'll heal these ones.
~Laurel's POV~

The whole household seems on edge after us all told our back stories. No one is really talking to each other. Very tense atmosphere.
"Hey Laurel," Alex comes into the room.
I feel like no matter what he says I'm still not going to be the same. Nothing is ever going to return fully to normal. "Hi," I say in my happiest voice possible.
"Come on, please smile or something. What's wrong?"
"Wanna play video games?"
"Of course."
That's all we ever do now. We play video games all day and only leave the room for food. Everyone else is the same way. Holing up in a room or doing one thing all day. We've turned into a pretty sad bunch. One day we'll be back to normal. I hope.
~Alex's POV~

It’s really unnerving to see Laurel so down. Nothing I do really helps. All we do is play video games, and that's the only time I see any emotion from her.
Ever since all the girls told their backgrounds they haven't been the same.
Laurel is the first girl to really make me happy, and it pains me that I can't help her through this tough time in her life.
Time is what they need. They've got all the time in the world, but how long is it going to take? How long is it going to take for them to realize that they have a bright future ahead of them? How long before they realize that they are around people that really truly care for them? How long before they're back to their normal selves?
~Lily's POV~
Ever since I told everyone my back story I feel everyone made a silent pack to love me. It’s nice, I really like being babied. I'm not going to take advantage of it too much.
Rose lets me curl into her side whenever I want to take a nap. She smiles a little at me, but I know on the inside she's sad.
Alex and Laurel let me watch them play video games. It’s weird to watch them, neither really have any emotion.
Kristy lets me help her cook meals and anything else she's cooking. If I had to have a mom, she’d have to be it. I mean, I love the other girls, but Kristy masks her pain well.
James takes me out to see the dogs whenever I ask. They help me get away from the world. Mason also takes me to see them, but I don't like to bug him when he's with Rose, which is a lot of the time.
A lot of the time I feel like a bother to everyone, and I know I'm not. They're all just dealing with the pain in a different way. This pain that I'm feeling, I won't let it take over my life. I have to help the others in some way. I'll talk to James, he'll help me.
I hope we can help the others squash their pain. It’s heart breaking to see them sad all the time.
~Mason's POV~
Rose, oh Rose. My poor baby. All you ever do is sit on my bed and read while listening to music. It must hurt to have a lot of pain bottled up inside. Nothing I seem to do helps.
Sometimes she falls asleep while reading, so I have to take her book out of her hand. Place a bookmark in it and set it down on the bedside table. Then I have to pause her music and put the iPod touch next to her book. After that I'll climb into bed and bring her close to me. She'll instantly curl up into a ball, fitting right into me. It’s like we were made to be. I'm falling for her and she's falling for me. I just don't want to hurt her. She's been hurt enough.
I think she has nightmares now. She'll thrash a lot in her sleep, cry and scream out for help, and just look so scared. I'm always there for her though. Saying soothing things into her ear until she calms back down. I hate seeing her so afraid of something that happened so long ago. All because we wanted to know her past. Damn it! Why couldn't we just leave her alone!
"Mason," her voice fills my ears and I look at her.
"Yes babe," I give a small smile. I feel like all her pain and sorrow came back because of me. She wouldn't be in such pain if she wasn't here. But then she'd still be on the streets. Damn it again!
"Come snuggle with me," she gives a small smile. Oh Rose, I'm sorry for all your pain. "I don't want to read anymore. Can you just get over here so I can snuggle with you?”
"Alright," I move over to her and bring her close to me. She rests her head in the middle of my chest.
I wish there was something else I could do to help. Maybe there is. Think Mason!


Hope you liked it! :)
