7. Part 2 - Trouble At Home

"Jenny, we're going to Mrs. Bugsy's room to make posters and cards for Celest's family!" yelled a girl walking to building C. Every mention of her sends me to tears, I wasn't able to stop thinking about her all day. I made sure my jacket was zipped up all the way trying to hide my chest although it is disappearing. 

In first period Kyle pointed out that I was spontaneously growing breasts, at first I thought he was giving me shit for earlier in the morning when i magically turned into one, but when I took a glance, I noticed that he was telling the truth. The whole day was a game of hiding how much of a bitch I've become slouching and making sure my baggy hoodie is staying baggy. I tried to figure out why this has been happening but all my thoughts were just masked by my worry for Celest. 

Kyle approached me as soon as I walked out the front doors to the campus.

"Are they gone?" he asked in an excited tone.

I gave him a death stare and he quickly wiped off a grin. I then unzipped my sweatshirt exposing the slowly deflating woman parts.

"I still do not understand all this what did that meteor do to you?" His face scrunched into a confused expression and then he checked again, "Ahh swelling is going down!"

I looked relieved that i could let loose finally and unzipped my jacket.

"Today was hell," I screamed at him, "Did you fucking hear about Celest?"

"You mean 'Dream Girl'? Yeah, fucking tragic, the whole school seemed so depressed today, I didn't know she was that popular."

"Most people are trying to seem like people and not the animals they actually are," Drake proclaimed as he walked out the front doors, "I'm sorry Andrew it seems like you're the only one who does."

I looked to my feet and fell in flurry of tears.

"I didn't even get to say hi, I-"

"Stop being such a creeper man, it's sad and all, but you need to stop ok? Now c'mon, I'd like to get the shit with Elga over with as soon as possible."


We walked in the front doors as quietly as possible, there were at least twenty police cars parked outside and we passed half of the officers at the front door.

"Well, Now we can get started!" Elga walked out of the kitchen and into the entryway crossing her arms

"Oh fucking shit!" I muttered under my breath


Kyle and I heard Elga yelling as they came up to the door

"I swear I saw it fall from the sky! There was proof that it landed there!" 

"I'm sorry about all this but you could easily have dug that up in preparation and wanted to get money off of it, without a meteor and a radiation test, you can't get any money from your insurance!"

"Then take a radiation test at the site!" she choked

Drake walked up the steps and held his finger over his lips.

"Sorry, without evidence, we can't do shit!" They closed the door and walked away laughing into their walkie-talkies

We laughed as we heard Elga screaming profanities to herself throwing a fit downstairs, but that came to a stop when she stomped up the stairs and grabbed Drake tossing him down the steps.

"Little fuck!" she yelled as she grabbed him by the head pulling him off into the kitchen.

We ran downstairs and tried to loosen her grip on him but she threw us back she slammed his head on the trap door in the kitchen floor.

"You fuckin' ruined me! I could've gotten money, compensation," She picked up his head and turned it so they looked into eachothers eyes, his swollen to the point where he almost can't see, "you're dead," she pulled him close and whispered into his ear, "just like your fucking dumb ass parents!"

We all went silent, Kyle pushed me back to the opposite wall and in fear I knew too to stay away. Since day one she made him feel like shit, but Elga never crossed the parent line, and knowing Drake, she's going to regret it until she's on her death bed. Elga stood up proudly looking down at the beaten kid laying on the floor. I saw him trembling in anger, we both curled into the corner expecting the worst.

Without a word, Drake jumped up on her, taking her down through the table. He started punching her, right left, right left not letting up. Her screams were probably heard across the city as her face became more and more deformed and bloody.

"Drake stop, this isn't you!" Kyle yelled

Fearful I approached him and tried pulling him off, he pushed me away sending me flying into a wall. He turned back to look at me, but when I saw him I swelled in fear. His eyes were pure and pitch black and his face was the epitome of evil. I backed into the wall and he turned back, wailing at her again.

Kyle got up and slowly approached him but I signaled him to stop.

"He's gonna kill her!" he mouthed

"She's already dead!" I said back

Her screams faded away and Drake began to choke her.

"Oh don't stop yet, it was just getting fun," his voice was deep, demented all most! He cuckled, "I want you to scream!"

His hands were around her neck and she was gasping for air. His hands and arms began to glow just like before when he held me against the tree.

"Scream," he whispered in her ear, she still tried for air, "Scream!"

She wailed with as much strength as she could muster as her body slowly decomposed. He held her neck until it snapped off her body which was greyer and more skeletal than before. She dissolved into dust and the glow disappeared.

Kyle and I were pushed up on opposite walls, expressions of disbelief on our faces. Drake stood up on a pile of ashes and looked to me, tears dripping down his newly healed face. 

"Shit man, come here!" I said staggering up to give him a hug. Kyle watched in fear on the floor still.

"She's dead, I didn't want her dead, I didn't mean to kill her." He sobbed into my shoulder.

Police sirens came up the street and the three of us looked at eachother frightened. Kyle got to his feet and stepped towards us.

"We need to get out of here... Now!"
