When you lose someone you care about nothing else matters in the world; your world becomes one big black hole, you lose all the happiness in your body, mind, soul and spirit.

Hayden Rivers was always the shy type who was always with her older brother, their bond grew even closer when they were abandoned by their parents.

That all changes when her older brother (Ryan) dies and leaves her alone in the big, cruel world, she feels like an ant compared to everyone else and is lost with no sense of direction

At his funeral she doesn't expect to cross paths with Russell Scott

She witnesses him about to kill someone and that creates more problems in her already twisted life

Russell Scott is the most feared guy not only in their school but around the small town the live in; He has tattoos, deals, drugs, fights,
has anger issues that get him in a lot of trouble and his own skeletons in his closet.

No matter how many people tell her to stay away she just can't


6. Chapter 6

The only thing worse than being scolded was silence.


“Please say something Adrianna” Hayden softly spoke from the back seat of her car seeing as her friend Annabella was in the front


“I don’t even know where to start” she sarcastically answered


“I didn’t sleep with him” Hayden tried convincing her


“Hayden, that’s not why I am so angry with you right now” she answered “You told me you were going to Peyton’s for a sleep over and then I receive a phone call at 4 in the morning from your friends sobbing about how they were guns and they couldn’t find you and the only thing you have to say is ‘I didn’t sleep with him?’...Do you know how worried I was Hayden?!” she exclaimed angrily


“I know, I’m sorry Adrianna, I just needed a little space, and I didn’t even know there would be guns”


“Its downtown” Annabella snorted


Hayden chose not to comment on the little jab Annabella took and just sat back


“No more clubs, lying or that Russell guy”


“Yeah okay” She answered and looked at the rain that was creating patterns on the window


Adrianna didn’t know what to do, she wasn’t even a mother yet .She loved Russell so much and when she lost him she was glad to take Hayden in because she became like a little sister and they had always been close on some level, she was just really worried about her lately.


When they finally got home a cop car was outside and Hayden knew who it was.


“Ross, what are you doing here?” Adrianna asked locking the car doors


“Oh I just came to check on you ladies” he smiled “How are you Hayden”


Hayden snorted and brushed passed him and his partner


“Sorry about her, she’s just a little out of it today” Adrianna apologised smiling softly


“It’s okay” Ross smiled


“Would you guys like to come in for some coffee?” Annabella offered like it was her house


“Would that be okay?”


“Yes come on” Adrianna smiled


As soon as Hayden got into her room she fell face flat on her bed and tried to remember the night’s events...were Jade and Peyton’s drinks also spiked?


Sighing she stood up and grabbed her small portable radio and made her way to her bathroom, ready to get the filth off her body from the night before


She took her time washing her hair and her mind constantly drifted off to Russell; what was wrong with that guy? She wondered...them kissing was becoming a habit...and the awkwardness when Adrianna caught them, God she could die.


“If you were falling, then I would catch you
you need a light, I'd find a match
'Cause I love the way you say good morning
and you take me the way I am




If you are chilly, here take my sweater
your head is aching, I'll make it better
'Cause I love the way you call me, baby
and you take me the way I am




I'd buy you Rogaine when you start losing all your hair
Sew on patches to all you tear
'Cause I love you more than I could ever promise
and you take me the way I am
You take me the way I am, you take me the way I am”




Hayden didn’t care that she was singing completely off key, she was enjoying herself. She closed the water and hoped out, brushed her teeth and combed through the knots in her hair.


She dressed up in some leggings, a chunky sweater with some warm socks and planted herself on her bed with her iPod, sketch books and pencils and she let her imagination go wild.


She noticed something moving and she stopped sketching and looked up finding Ross’s partner Paul standing in her door way, hands deep in his pockets, his lips moving


Paul always came over with Ross to ‘check on them’


“What?” She asked when she removed her earphones


Hayden didn’t know what to say to him exactly because she had never had an actual conversation with him


“I thought you were ignoring me” he chuckled scratching the back of his neck


“Couldn’t hear you” she answered lifting up her IPod


“So uh cool room” he smiled and she returned the favour


“Thanks” She smiled at him and looked around her room “Can I help you with something?” she asked


“No, I just uh thought this was the bathroom” he smiled


“Third door on your left” she answered sheepishly and continued with her sketches


“Also, do you wanna grab some pizza later?” he asked her which caught her by surprise


Hayden considered the idea but realised she was grounded “I wish I could but I’m kind of grounded”


“Good thing I spoke to Adrianna before huh” he smiled and left her room debating whether to close the door or not which made a giggle escape her lips “Pick you up at 7”


Hayden watched as he closed the door and left her room.


Hayden smiled at her drawing and placed it under her bed.




She actually had a date.wow.
