Hugs, drugs and lies

Tasha is a drug addict and Tony is an alcoholic. Brought together by chance, feelings start to develop between the two. The only thing that stands in the way of their happiness is Tony's relationship status. But he's unwilling to step out of his comfort zone and tell both girls the truth. After all, you can't date two girls at the same time, can you?


7. Chapter six: Tony

I bunked off that afternoon. I didn’t think anyone would notice that I was absent. They never normally do. My friends don’t really care if I'm in lesson because half the time they’re not even there either. So I went to my usual hideout and sat in the living room of the abandoned house. It’s pretty dark in there but it’s bearable. You kinda get used to it after a while. I knew how to get in the house. There is a broken boarded up window round the back that comes loose really easily. I took a swig from my vodka bottle. I didn’t bring it with me from school; previously I stashed a whole load of booze round the back for emergency situations like that day. I planned to get totally wasted. ‘This day can’t get any worse’ I thought. Boy was I wrong.

As I raised the vodka bottle to my lips I heard the loose wooden board from the window creak. I froze, thinking that it was builders. They couldn’t do anything to me except call the police but I don’t really care about that. The only reason I stay out of trouble is so I can look out for my dad. My mum told me I have to keep an eye on him. It's one of the last things she ever said to me. Thinking harder, I realised that the builders would have just used the front door since they would have a key. I tried to imagine who else would want to come to this abandoned house. I mean it didn’t exactly have a welcoming atmosphere. But who should walk through the door but Tasha Woodlyn, the very person I least wanted to talk to. Plus how on earth did she find me there? I didn’t think anyone else but I knew how to get into this old house. It’s one of the reasons that I picked this particular building as my alone space.
