''I'm a wounded soldier without shame. But I know my target, I know my aim.''

4. Chapter 3: Isn't It Time

I woke up due to the smell of delicious bacon. I got up and walked downstairs, where Robin was busy with pans and pots, trying to make breakfast. Since he failed horribly I decided to help. ‘’You, out of the kitchen!’’ I said to Robin and I laughed. So I send him out of the kitchen and saved the bacon from burning. I got the bread out of the oven and the eggs out of the pan so they wouldn’t overcook. I put everything on different plates and placed them on the kitchen table. ‘’FOOD!’’ I shouted and within a split-second Robin sat at the table and had grabbed a piece of bread with bacon. I sat down across of him and grabbed some food myself. ‘’So.. I didn’t get to take you out last night.’’ Robin started. ‘’So what about tonight?’’ He asked hopefully. ‘’Sure sounds nice!’’ I said while putting some more egg in my mouth. ‘’You’re a better cook than I am, that’s for sure.’’ He said and we both laughed. We finished breakfast and I stood up. ‘’Imma do the dishes now.’’ I said and I was about to bring some plates to the kitchen when Robin stopped me. ‘’No, you cooked, I’ll do the dishes.’’ He said. So I handed him the plates and said ‘’Okay, then I’ll take a quick shower!’’ And walked upstairs.

I relaxed as the warm water streamed over me. This was nice, living with Robin. But what will happen when he goes back to Stockholm? Where will I go? I decided not to worry about that and enjoyed the time I had with him. Cause even though it might not be for a long time, I got my best friend back.

I got out of the shower and dried myself off. I blow-dried my hair and straightened it. The pink already started to fade a little and my roots needed to be re-done. I’ll do that soon. Probably a different color too, we’ll see. I decided to put on my black jeans, striped slim-fit shirt and my red Sleeping With Sirens baseball jacket, and on my feet some black vans. I did my makeup really dark today and went downstairs. Robin was struggling with the dishes, and I noticed he had dropped a plate. ‘’Need some help?’’ I said. ‘’Eh.. Yes please.’’ He said and I helped him with the dishes.

‘’So, I’ll take a shower now if you don’t mind. ‘’ He said as we put the last cups in the cabinets. ‘’sure go ahead.’’ I said. He walked upstairs and I decided to watch some tv. For some reason I had a lot of fun watching Honey Boo-Boo… Don’t ask me why. I just think that that family is very..interesting. After a while Robin came back down. ‘’Hey.’’ He said and sat down next to me. ‘’What are you watching?’’ He asked. ‘’Honey Boo-Boo’’ I said and laughed. He took the remote from me and zapped to another channel. They we’re showing a festival from yesterday again, Allsang Pa Skansen. Danny Saucedo, Darin and Janet Leon performed there and I enjoyed watching them. Especially Danny with his partially Spanish song ‘Todo El Mundo’. It was all happy and colorful and stuff. I sang along with the chorus and Robin just smiled at me. ‘’You sound even better than last year.’’ He said. And started singing himself. ‘’What am I supposed to do..’’ I sang along: ‘’’When the best part of me was always you’’ And so we automatically sang a duet of the song Breakeven from The Script. It has always been a song we loved to sing together, and he had sung it on idols too.

Then the doorbell rang. “I’ll get it.’’ I said and jumped up. When I opened the door I saw my mother. ‘’Where is your father.’’ She said. ‘’I don’t know. Police office?’’ I said. ‘’WHAT DO YOU MEAN POLICE OFFICE?! WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TO FRAME HIM?! WHAT HAVE YOU ACCUSED HIM OFF!? YOUR SISTER TOLD ME YOU WERE HERE WITH SOME GUY?!’’ She shouted at me. ‘’I’m here with Robin.’’ I said trying to stay calm. ‘’You mean that ‘friend’ of yours who went to idols?’’ she asked with a hateable tone in her voice. ‘’Yes.’’ I said, still calmly. Then from behind me Robin came. ‘’I heard screaming.’’ He said. And stood next to me with his arm around my shoulders. ‘’Fine. I’ll go to the police office then.’’ My mother said and left. We closed the door and went back to watching tv.

‘’Let’s play Would You Rather!’’ Robin said. At this point it was a couple of hours later and the full moon showed from behind grey clouds, lighting up the streets outside with pretty moonlight. ‘’Sure. You go.’’ I said and turned to him crossing my legs. ‘’Would you rather… eat a cat or .. go on a date with a hobo.’’ He said and smiled. ‘’Go on a date with a hobo for sure.’’ I said. ‘’Why?’’ Robin asked and raised his eyebrows. ‘’Because, dear Mr. Stjernberg, I am not eating my own species. I am a cat, face it.’’ I said and we both laughed. ‘’Okay now you.’’ He said. ‘’Okay so would you rather… eat only insects for the rest of your life or.. eat rotten fish.’’ I asked. ‘’ROTTEN FISH!’’ He shouted within a split-second. ‘’BECAUSE..’’ He started. ‘’That would be a one-time thing and not the rest of my life.’’

After these we did some more. Then we watched some boring TV series on channel 6 and decided to go to the basement and play some music. So I grabbed my guitar and played some tunes. At some point I played the chords of Coldplay’s ‘In My Place’ on Robin’s electric guitar and we both sang along. We even decided to record it with computer drum sounds. We ended up recording some other covers too, songs like Lifehouse – Halfway Gone, Keane – Silenced by the Night, and Hey There Delilah from the Plain White T’s.

‘’What time is it?’’ I asked and I yawned. ‘’About 2AM.’’ Robin said. ‘’Let’s record one more song, how about the song we danced to on the prom last year before you left?’’ I asked. ‘’Sure.’’ He said and grabbed his guitar. I placed the microphones and grabbed mine. I started the recording device and Robin started playing the intro of the song. I played along and started singing.

‘’So, so you think you can tell heaven from hell? Blue skies from pain? Can you tell a green field from a cold steel rail? A smile from a veil? Do you think you can tell?’’

Robin sang the next verse, and after that, the chorus:

‘’How I wish, how I wish you were here. We’re just two lost souls, swimming in a fish bowl. Year after year, running over the same old ground. What have we found? The same old fears. Wish you were here..’’

The tears streamed down my cheeks as we stopped the recording and put away our guitars. He looked up and saw my eyes. ‘’Hey… What’s wrong?’’ Robin asked and grabbed my hand. ‘’The song..’’ I said and shocked a little from crying. He led me to the couch and we sat down, he looked at me, worried. ‘’What about it?’’ He asked. ‘’When you were gone.. My grandpa died.. They played this on his funeral..’’ I said and started to shock a little again. ‘’Awh I’m sorry..’’ He said and he gave me a hug. He let go and I sat down behind the piano, playing the last song of that evening. When I started playing he immediately recognized the song and joined on his guitar. I started singing, and began with the chorus:

‘’I’m falling apart, I’m barely breathing. With a broken heart, that’s still beating. In the pain, there is healing. In your name I find meaning. So I’m holding on, I’m holding on, I’m holding on. I’m barely holding on to you..’’

As the last notes from ‘Broken’ faded away to silence we both got up and walked upstairs. We went to our rooms, and I sat down on my bed with my head in my hands. ‘’What have I gotten myself into..’’ I whispered and though about the fact I literally had nowhere to go when Robin left to go to Stockholm again. I got up and walked to my mirror to splash some water in my face. I noticed my make-up had worn off by my crying. So I washed it all off and changed into my pajamas. I laid down in my bed with my eyes wide open. ‘’knock knock’’ Robin said from behind the door. ‘’Come in!’’ I said and sat up. ‘’Came to say goodnight.’’ He said and sat down on the side of my bed. ‘’Goodnight.’’ I said as I hugged him. ‘’Goodnight beautiful.’’ He said. After that he got up and walked out, closing the door behind him. I heard him opening his room door and closing it again. And then I laid back down and closed my eyes, but a couple of hours later I still couldn’t fall asleep. I got back up, and opened my window. I was sweaty all over and the heat in my room made it hard to breathe. When I opened it, I noticed there was actually a little balcony with a cute little chair outside. So I sat down, and tried to relax. As the breathing got a little easier and my body cooled down I grabbed my phone from the nightstand. I saw I got a message from my old friend Alex Jafarzadeh. ‘’Haven’t talked to u in a while, how are u?’’ It said. I sat back down outside and replied to him ‘’I’m fine. Chilling with my friend Robin Stjernberg, what have u been up to?’’ I pressed send and …my phone died, ofcourse. I heard sounds so I looked up, and I saw bats flying over me. Even though I love bats I wasn’t really in the mood to confront them, so I went back inside. I put my phone on the charger and placed it on my bedstand. I opened one of my suitcases that I had left unopened earlier and took my laptop from it. I logged in to facebook and saw that one of my friends, Alvaro, had send me a message. ‘’Haven’t seen you online much lately, being a busy bee?’’ So I replied saying: ‘’Yeah kinda xd’’ and clicked the chat box away again. I scrolled though my timeline looking at some posts from band pages. Sleeping With Sirens released their album FEEL, Pierce The Veil did an interview with BryanStars on Warped Tour, and Falling In Reverse released the music video for their song ‘alone’. I clicked on the link of the video and it slowly buffered. It started with Ronnie Radke driving in his car and the others getting out of an airplane, after that some stuff with suits and microphones, and the song ended. I put it on replay and closed the tab, opening twitter. My timeline was spammed by people tweeting about the fact they thought the ‘alone’ video was bad and stuff. I send one tweet saying I loved it and didn’t care and closed twitter again, it bored me.

I closed my laptop and laid down on my bed again. I looked at the ceiling and to my disgust I saw a giant spider. So, what did I do? No, I didn’t scream and wake Robin up, I decided to go ninja style. So I grabbed a newspaper and rolled it up, stood up on top of my bed and hit the spider. Which made it fall down on top of me, still crawling a little. I hit it some more and then got some toilet paper to pick it up with. I threw it out of the window to see a bat catch it and eat it.

I laid down under my blankets again, at this point it was almost 4AM so I closed my eyes and finally fell asleep.

Not so long after that I woke up thanks to an annoying buzzing sound next to my ear. It suddenly stopped and I quickly got up. I turned on my lights and saw a giant mosquito flying through my room. I sighed and grabbed my phone, 5AM.

I grabbed the newspaper again and went hunting. I hit a couple of times but missed, but when the thing sat down on my arm I had a clear shot. So I hit it with my newspaper and it fell down to the ground. ‘’Take that asshole.’’ I whispered. I laid back down under my blankets and fell asleep yet again.

When I woke up the next morning Robin wasn’t there. But when I walked into the living room I saw a sticky note on the table.

‘’ I went grocery shopping, I figured it would be nice to have something to eat and to drink other than dry bread and water. I’ll be back soon x ’’ It said.

I sat down on the couch and played with my hair a little. Then the phone rang. It was the police.

‘’Hello?” I said and listened. ‘’Hello miss, this is the Växjö police department. You must be miss Grey?’’ The officer on the phone said. ‘’Yeah that’s me, is there something wrong?’’ I asked. ‘’I’m afraid so, we didn’t have enough evidence to keep your father here so we had to let him go. But now, we have found evidence, pictures and videos of bruises, we even found a witness that he abuses other girls too. Only, we can’t find him anymore. Your mother doesn’t know where he is and neither does your little sister. Do you have any idea?’’ The officer asked. ‘’No idea.’’ I said and started to freak a little, what if he comes after me? I know he has a knife and I’m sure he has a gun too. He could kill me if he wanted to, after all, I was the one who told the police about him…

‘’Alright then.’’ The officer said. ‘’You better be careful miss, you helped us, he might come after you. Be on your guard. We will send some more officers to your street to make sure nothing happens. They will patrol around day and night.’’ ‘’Alright, I will watch out.’’ I said as I tried to sound calm, when actually I was shaking in fear. ‘’Have a nice day, we will contact you when we know more.’’ The officer said. I hung up.

Then I heard a loud bang behind me.
