Broken Home

Everyone told me life was wonderful...
Having your mom take her life when you were 15 and never even seeing your dad since you were 8 doesn't sound wonderful, does it?
Anyways, Im Mackenzie and I'm 17. Ever since my mom committed suicide when I was around 15, I've lived on my own. I cut, I drink, and I smoke, but I couldn't care less. Life is just full of shit anyways. I've never actually had anyone care about me, until I met Calum Hood...


1. New Kid.


I stopped caring about everything the two days my life fell apart.

I used to be a happy kid, full of life, and joy. But, when I was eight, the father who once tucked me into bed, the one who let me build things with him, the one who read stories to me, had left. I don't know where, and I don't know why. When I was fifteen, my mother, the one who made me meals, the one who took me on walks, the one who went shopping with me, had token her own life. Again, I don't know why, but I still have the sights buried in my mind. Horrifying images of my mother, just hanging from her bedroom ceiling, they still haunt me. The letter was one of the worst things I have ever read. It makes me so upset to read it.

Those two days were the worst in my life.


Ugh. I don't like school. It just bothers me.

It's something that gets you labeled, bullied, and it just isn't fun.

Although I don't like school, I hide behind a smile, but it's pretty damn hard though...

Mackenzie's POV

I woke up to the annoying sound of birds waking me up. I then washed my face from the night before and got dressed. I threw on a black skater dress and a jean jacket with some galaxy vans.

For makeup, I put on foundation, dark eyeshadow, winged eyeliner, and eos.

I then straightened my light pink scene hair.

After getting ready, I hopped in my car to drive to school. The ride there I told myself-

"Today, I am going to start being nicer, smile more. Mom wouldn't want me to be upset all the time, neither would dad."

As soon as I walked into the doors to get a late Slip:

"Mackenzie! Wonderful to see you!" One teacher said.

"Hey" I smiled.

I was too focused on the new kid in the office. He was tall, with dark brown hair, and a few tattoos.

"Hi! You must be new. I'm Mackenzie" I grinned.

"I'm Calum." He said shyly.

"Mackenzie, would you like to show Calum around the school??" The principal asked.

"Yeah no problem." I said as we walked into the halls.

"So what school did you come from?" I asked, trying to make a friend, knowing he is probably bored of me already.

He just kept looking at my wrists.

"Oh, you saw these didn't you?" I asked, lifting up my wrist.

"Yeah, sorry. What happened? You don't have to tell me if its to personal." Calum generously asked.

"Well, it started when I was eight. One day, out of nowhere, my dad was gone. I don't know where or why though. And then, when I was fifteen, my mom, she-- she kinda, k-k-well, she took her own life. I still have the note in my bag, although it kills me to know this is the last thing my mom wrote to me." I said as tears began rolling down my cheeks.

As soon as he saw me crying, he pulled me into a hug. The only slightly awkward thing was people in the class we stopped in front of, were watching us. I then pulled away.

"Thank you so much for actually at least pretending you care. No one actually listens." I said with only a few tears on my cheeks.

"But I'm not pretending. I actually care" Calum said, looking concerned and confused.

"Oh. It's just I don't have any friends and when people ask me they never listen to what I explain." I explained.

"Well now I'm your friend. I'll listen to everything you have to say, and I'll care no matter what it is." He said as I smiled.

"Crap. I forgot I have to show you around the school. What classes do you have? I'll just show you those ones" I asked as he pulled out his sheet of classes.

"Sweet, you and I have the same classes. I guess you can just follow me through your first day. You don't start till next week I assume" I explained as he nodded.

--After School--

I drove to the mall after school because I was planning on getting my lip pierced, and getting some clothes. When I walked in I saw what looked liked Cal with some other guy. I could kinda hear them talking.

"So you met a girl today??" The one guy asked.

"Yeah. Shes so beautiful, and so nice and considerate. She seems so perfect. Her eyes, her smile, her hair, everything about her seems so beautiful and perfect. I just don't know weather I should ask her out or not." I heard Calum say. I immediately began to blush but I had to stay quiet.

"Wow, seems like she's wonderful. Whats her name??" The guy asked. I then decided to walk up to them.

"Mackenzie! This is my friend, Ashton." Calum said excitedly.

"Is this that girl you said was pretty, nice, and such?" Ashton asked.

"Well anyways, I was just coming to get my lip pierced. What are you guys doing?" I asked.

"Ashton told me we had to meet Micheal here. Micheal is our other friend." Cal told me.

"Ohhhh well do you guys want to get a bite to eat? My treat." I said as we began walking to the food court.

As I was sitting at our table while the guys were ordering, this guy walked up to the table and sat down beside me.

"Hi! I'm Micheal, Ash and Calums friend. You must be Mackenzie." He explained.

"Yep." I answered.

"Well, why don't you tell me a bit about yourself?" Micheal asked.

"Well, I really like Nirvana, Greenday, Fallout boy, and tons of other bands, I play alot of video games, and watch a ton of YouTube. And my dad also left when I was a little kid, and my mom kinda, well, she died a few years back." I said.

"Well I am so sorry to hear that. If you don't mind me asking, how did your mom pass away?" He then asked.

"Well, when I was sbout 15, she had killed herself. I don't know why. But I think it was something related to my dad." I explained

---After Eating---

"If you guys wanna come with me to get my lip pierced, you can." I told them as they all followed me to the shop.

"I kinda like this one" I pointed out a little black ball thingy.

-After Getting Lip Pierced-

I looked in the mirror at the shop and loved my piercing.

"It kinda reminds me of Lukes lip ring." Micheal said.

"Who's Luke??" I asked.

"Oh, Luke is our other friend." Ashton explained.

"We can meet him here if you want." Calum suggested.

"Umm sure? Doesn't matter to me." I answered.

About 10 minutes later, we saw that Luke kid I guess, walk into the mall.

"Hey Luke! This is Mackenzie. Mackenzie, this is Luke." Cal said as I smiled and waved.

"Is this the girl you texted me was really cute, and nice, and stuff??" Luke asked. To be honest he was pretty cute.

"Thats what Ashton asked earlier. Calum is this true??" I asked.

"Well- um- mayb- yeah.." Calum answered.

*insert that 'OHHHHHH' sound effect from vine here*

"Oooooh Calum has a cruuush Calums got a chruuush" Luke shouted as I blushed.

-Authors Note-

So, do you think that Calum and Mackenzie will start dating? Or do you think they will wait a while? Mackenzie may even date one of the other guys......
