17. Chapter 17- Trying to Forget

"Last night at LakeBridge High, a person who wants to remain unidentified discovered a crime scene in the girls bathroom. A Jasmin Turner laid on the floor with several sever injures, one to the head, her ankle and stab wounds in her stomach nine times. What a tragic end to their perfect prom night."

I laid in my bed, smelling burnt toast coming from downstairs. Last night my mum had met up with my dad in a bar downtown. I was too afraid to ask how it went, I don't want my mum to get hurt again. I hear the toast pop up and a clink of when they hit the plate.

My head hurt from all the thinking I did last night, it couldn't of gone worse. But Luke had stayed with me all night, as far as I knew, he hadn't even gone home. My mum gave him a few pillows and a blanket for him to sleep on the sofa. I don't know for sure if he stayed over or not. I loved him so much, he had been there for me, made me more confident in myself and got me to break out of my shell.

A knock on my door alerts me and I make a noise to let them know they can come in.

"Hey darling." My mum pushes the door open with a red tray holding my burnt toast and a glass of orange juice. What I would give to redo the prom and drink that awful punch again...

"How are you?" My mum questioned, I knew that she was being caring but it was a stupid question to ask to be honest. Oh yeah, I'm fine, I just saw a victim of a murder in the bathroom at my school. It's all cool.

"Good." I lie, mum pulls me into a tight hug, and we hear another knock at the door. My mum answers for me and Luke walks in,

"I put the pillows and blanket back in the wardrobe for you." He bounces over to me and strokes my hair and kisses my forehead. I close my eyes and with I could stay like this forever. I jump back into reality when I hear the front door close downstairs. Luke leaps up and goes to run downstairs to see what it was.

"Uh- don't- um- worry about it. It-it was just the...wind. It was the wind. Yeah the wind...?" My mum doesn't seem to confident at lying but Luke sits back down when my mum decides to leave the room.

"You okay baby?" He puts my head in the crook of his neck and rests his head on the top of mine. I shake my head and he starts rocking is back and forth. Tears start streaming down my face and soon enough I can't breathe easily.

"I just can't forget her face, her blank eyes..." Luke purses his lips together, and takes a deep breath.

"We are going to have to try and forget."
