Kira is your average 17 year old girl, she goes to school, gets good grades and her family is decent. She has a bit of an attitude and says how she feels and isn't afraid to defend herself. All of that is about to change when a new kid named Luke comes to town and changes everything. This is NOT your average story and DEFINITELY not a love story.


6. Chapter 6

I pick my head up and wipe the tears from my face and walk over to my full sized mirror and I stare at myself. I look at my long brown hair and I instantly pick up my brush and braid it. It's almost as if my body is on auto-pilot. I walk into my closet and pick up my old black sneakers and put them on, grab my earbuds and I walk out of my room. Down the long stairs and past my parents arguing in the kitchen and out the door. 

Looks like I'm going on a run...a million thoughts consumes my head and I have no idea now it would be amazing if I could get control of what I'm doing because I'm just running farther away from my house. I'm in an alley. Flashbacks from earlier today. Every time I turn my head I think I see the gunman again. 



I've stopped. 


I'm in a part of town that I've never been before, I see a little store, now if I was in the right mind I would've gone back the way I came but I'm clearly not, I walk down to the store and there he is the gunman. He's staring at me, his icy breath is whispering. "Shut up bitch." Then something or someone fell on me. Is it Luke? 

"Kira I'm sorry are you alright." I shake my head, "No?"

"What, oh Jack. I'm sorry it was like I was in another world." I say looking back where the gunman was, and he's gone, was he really there?

"What are you looking at?" he says looking where I was,

"Oh nothing-I've never been here before."

"Well I can show you around, if you want."

"Sure," We walk around the store and it's basically an overpriced shitty candy store. Insted of starbursts there is moonbursts. M&M's are N&N's. Snickers is Giggles. I buy a pack of gum and we walk out of the store, "You know for a football player you're not a total asshole."

"Thanks." We both laugh "Hey is it cool if I walk you home? I mean-"
"Yeah, I'd like that."

The walk back was quiet, not awkward but kinda sweet. Don't get the wrong idea here Jack is great but he's dating a cheerleader and you know people don't hate him. 

"Is this your house?"
"Yep, hey thanks again."

"Any time." We smile and I walk up the steps and Rocky greets me at the door. To my surprise Dylan isn't running behind him. 

"Mum?" I say petting Rocky 

"Kitchen!" I walk in the kitchen and my mom is cooking like crazy, dad and her must be having company or something.

"Where's Dylan?"
"Your father and Dylan went to pick up an old army friend of your dads. He's going to be staying with us for a little bit."
"That's cool but why?"

"He's an orphan, his parents died while he was in the service. He's been discharged because he had to get his leg amputated." She says taking a Shepard's pie out of the oven. 

"Ok," I say starting to chop carrots. I help mom with the salad's and Dylan's dinner. 


"Look likes they're back," she wipes her hands on her apron and goes to greet them, I wash my hands and finish setting the table. About five minutes later they all walk in.

"Jim, this is my daughter Kira. Jim this is Kira." 

"Hi nice to meet you." I say shaking his hand

"Hello nice to meet you too. Allison this looks amazing!" He says sitting down at the table.

"Jim! Did you see anything go boom?! Dylan says making the explosion sound effect.

"Yep quite a few times young man. So Kira you what 16, 17?"
"17," I say placing a piece of Sheppard's pie onto my plate. 

"School going good?" 

"As good as high school can be." I finish my dinner fairly quickly "May I be excused?" 

"Go ahead," My dad says, 

I clear my plate and I walk upstairs. It's been the same for as long as I can remember, I've liked the attic because it made me feel like Cinderella and I could maybe one day find Prince Charming. Sooooo original I know. I pick up my phone and plug my earbud in and start to blast When She Cries, nightcore of course and I do my homework on my laptop when an unsaved number texts me. "Hey wyd its Luke."

I put my laptop aside and start to text him back. "Homework, How did u get my #?'

"Didnt u add it?"

"Lucky guess then xD"

"hey brb"


"Come in." I say putting my phone away

"Hey," Jim says walking in.


"Is it alright if I sit?"
"Of course." I move all my papers to make room for him to sit. 

He sits down and takes his prosthetic off, "did you know I'm your godfather?"
"No I didn't. That's cool." 

"Yeah, it kinda is. You were a quiet baby."
"You knew me as a baby?"
"Yeah I used to come back for Christmas and Thanksgiving or whenever I got the chance really."

"That's cool." My phone starts to buzz because I put it on silent, 

"Oh well I won't keep you any longer, someone clearly ants to talk to you." 

"Oh its nothing." 

"Don't worry about me besides Dylan said he wanted to show me a trick he taught Dug."

"It's Rocky actually Dylan calls him Dug."
"Good to know." He puts his prosthetic back on and walks out of my room shutting the door behind him. I look down at my phone and Mrs. Jackson had given us even more homework and was reminding us about shit that no one gives a fuck about."

"Yaaaayyy more homework to waste my time with." I roll my eyes and turn the volume  up higher and continue working.
