Will they make it through the obstacles that come their way.


4. Her.


I stayed in my room most of the time listening to music. That's what helped me forget about everything that was going on in life. But when I wasn't in my room listening to music  I felt like the ugly duckling. I would go out to eat dinner and I would sneak some snacks into my room so I wouldn't have to come out of my room that much .

I thought to my self, "dang if this is how the rest of my summer is gonna be its gonna be awful ."

But then I heard my dad call out to Diana, "Hurry up! She needs help!"
I rushed down stairs to make sure Diana heard my dad. By the time I reached the bottom step she was already out the door.

I followed her to the drive way to see if they needed any help. 

I helped my dad carry the girl out of the car. She was sleeping. She was all bruised up and dirty. She looked like she hasn't showered in days and she kind of smelled like it too.

I carried her to the guest room, while my dad was making some phone calls and Diana went to get her some clothes and a towel so she could shower when she woke up.

As I laid her on the bed her eyes opened. She looked at me with frightened eyes. She could hardly speak, but she managed to say, "w-w-who are you?!" In a terrified voice that was almost a scream.

"Hey" I said, "my name is Esteban. My dad brought you home with him. He saved your life..." 

"I'm aware. But why did he bring me here instead of a shelter or something. There's plenty in San Francisco."

"I guess he wanted to make sure that you were safe... How old are you?

She stared at me blankly. Like she didn't know what to say. Then finally she spoke after a few minutes.

"I'm 16 and a half.."

"Dang you're so young to be out in the streets like that."

"I gotta do what I gotta do. My mom died when I was five and my dad left me home alone one day and he never came back so since that day I've had to care for myself."

"Wow. I bet that's tough.."

"It is. I started slanging at the age of 12 and of course the day I don't have my knife on me this happens... I just know I need money fast."

"Why?" I asked.

"Cause I owe people money... And if I don't pay up soon they'll come after me..."

"Oh... Well why don't you stay here for a bit. I'll tell my dad. I know he'll be okay with it. Why don't you take a shower, there's clothes and a towel in the bathroom already waiting for you. And then once you're done showering you should get some rest. I'll be back to check up on you."

"Um.. Okay. Hey?"


"Um... Thanks " she smiled a little and I smiled back at her.

I went to find my dad. And he was in the kitchen talking to Diana. 
"Yeah I just saw her getting beat up by three guys in the middle of an alley. "

"Oh my god!" Diana gasped. 

"Hey dad, um do you think she could stay here for a while? I was talking to her and she said that she's only 16 and a half and her moms dead and her dad left her alone... She really needs a place to stay."

"Yeah, we can work things out." My dad said and then continued talking to Diana.

I slowly walked up the stairs thinking that compared to her, I didn't have it bad at all.

I returned to the guest room that she was staying in and I forgot to knock ! I walk in and she was standing there putting her bra on! I turn around and say sorry. 

"Oh my gowsh!!" She screams and wraps herself in the towel during the process.

"Sorry I didn't knock, but I came in to say that I have good news."

"You can turn around now. And what is that ?"

As I turn around I see her with a towel wrapped around her tightly, showing her curves. She's pretty hot when she's cleaned up... Well in a towel. Her hair is long, curly, and really dark brown almost black. Her skin is like perfect not too light and not to dark. She's caramel colored. Her eyes are a light green. Her smile is blinding and she has dimples. She is like an angel.

"Well I asked my dad like I said I was gonna and he said that you could stay."

"Well that's good, I guess. Hey do you have any other clothes? I am not wearing these! They are hideous."

"Um, yeah. Let me go and get you something from my room."

I walked to my room and she followed in her towel. We entered my room and she shut the door behind her.

"Just give me llike soccer shorts or something. And a plain t-shirt. Pleeaaaasse" she smiled as she said please. I guess she realized she was being a little bossy.

"Yeah, no problem."

"Hey how did you know I would own soccer shorts?" I asked wondering how she knew I played.

"Well you don't seem like the type to play basketball. And you're pretty skinny and tall and you have a  cute little butt that just makes you wanna squeeze it, but its too small to be a football or baseball players. And you look like you're in pretty good shape."

I started laughing so hard that I fell on my bed. And I said, "well you're good! Haha"

"I know." She said and laughed along with me.

She started changing right in front of me. I couldn't help but stare.

"And what do you do? You like you're in pretty good shape yourself ." I said.

"Well I run from cops quite a bit. Up and down the hills of San Francisco . It's quite a work out!"

"I see. Well tomorrow you and I could go to the mall and take you shopping for clothes that you actually like." I told her.

"Yeah, that sounds great."

We talked some more about how I moved out here . It felt good talking to her because she actually listened and showed that she cared a little. She was the first person to do that besides my Tia.

"Well it's getting late ima go to my room and get some rest . It's been a long an interesting day. Well good night Esteban."

She headed toward the door. 

"Wait!" I called out, "You never told me your name ?"

She smiled and said, "my name is Liana. Now good night."

"Goodnight Liana" I smiled as I watched her leave because it was a good view from behind.
