Forevermore (Star-Crossed) (S1)

2. These Violent Delights Have Violent Ends

Emery, Julia, and I were in Julia's room watching TV before school, and the news was all over what happened in the Sector. Our dad accidentally shot Nox, Roman and Sophia's dad. People were making it seem like our dad was a hero and that Nox would've hurt any one of the guards, but Emery and I believe that wasn't the case. I didn't hear anything that Julia and Emery said because my mind was on Roman, Sophia, and their mother.


“I wish you were coming to school with us.” Emery said and that pulled me back to reality.


“In a few day. Doc Benson wants to run some more tests. I don't know if you've heard, but... I'm kind of a miracle.” Julia chuckled.


Emery and I joined in and I couldn't help but feel like there is an elephant in the room.


“It's so strange. All I remember from that night is a dream about... a blue angel who came into my hospital room and cured me. Freaky, huh?” Julia said.


“Yeah.” Emery and I said together.


That's when I remembered that Emery and I knew that Roman saved her. I can't wait to thank Roman for saving Julia because he really didn't have to, but he did anyway.


Emery and I headed off to school and I could tell that today was going to be very interesting. While in class, some of the students, including Eric, decided to pick a fight.


“Hey, Em, Lea. Your dad doing okay?” Lukas asked us.


“It's hard to say.” I started.


“Any time we ask him about it, he just changes the subject.” Emery finished.


“Hey, your dad's a hero. Nox would've killed that guard if your dad hadn't shot him.” a kid in our class said.


I could tell by the look on Teri, Drake, Roman, and Sophia's face that, that comment hit them pretty hard.


“I don't think that's how it happened.” Emery said.


“I think they lost all credibility the second they took off into the woods with a tattie.” Eric said.


Before anybody else could say a word, I decided to speak up because I'm not letting Eric berate me or my sister.


“You know what, shut the hell up Eric. You have no idea what it feels like to lose a parent. Maybe if you would grow the hell up, you would realize how cool the Atrian's are. They also have names so start using them.” I growled.


Everyone was shocked by my outburst, but I could tell that both Roman and Sophia really appreciated what I had said. I feel so much better now and I could tell that both Emery and Lukas were proud of me.


“Roman.” I said as I tried to talk to him in the hallway.


“You won't even talk to us now?” Emery questioned.


“I can't.” Roman replied.


I could tell right then that something was very off with him.


“It was an accident.” I said.


“Roman, it was an accident. We're so sorry.” Emery said.


“Why? Because my father's dead? Or because your father shot him?” Roman asked.


“Because you're in pain.” I replied.


“Will you at least let us thank you?” Emery asked.


“For what?” Roman asked back.


“We found this in Julia's hospital room. You saved her life.” Emery replied as she showed him the cyper plant.


“She probably swiped it as a souvenir when the three of you broke into the Sector last week.” Roman said.


“No, she would've told us.” Emery said.


“It didn't happen. Just... please, let it go. We're from two different worlds, Emery, Lea. We can't keep pretending like that doesn't matter.” Roman said.


“It only matters if we let it.” I told Roman as I looked at him.


I could tell that Roman was struggling with looking at me. When he did look at me, I took notice that he was trying not to reach out for me, but he chose to walk to his bus instead. I also get that he's hurting but he didn't have to yell at me or Emery. Emery pulled me to her and hugged me tight because she knew how I felt. Emery, Lukas, and I went to sit in on this meeting that the board was having because we were curious as to what they were going to say.


“Who is that guy?” Emery said as this guy continued to voice his opinions.


“Robert Vartan. Veteran red hawk.” Lukas replied.


More talking went on before Emery and I looked at each other because we had, had enough.


“You don't even know them!” I said as I stood up.


“The Atrian seven aren't terrorists.” Emery said as she stood up.


“They're teenagers.” We said together.


“Little girls, please. You don't know what you're talking about.” Vartan said as he looked at us.


“Hey, watch it. They're my daughters.” our dad said.


Vartan decided to get up and leave and boy it's a good thing he did because I was about to give him a piece of my mind.


“You say you want to learn from them, but you won't even allow them to come to our carnival?” Emery started.


“How can they learn to trust us when we don't give them reason to?” I finished.


Some people seemed to agree with us and I could tell that our dad was very proud of us. It took a lot of guts for us to stand up like that, but I would gladly stand up for the Atrian seven any day. As we entered Mama Jean's, Lukas was telling us how bad ass we were. Emery and I kept getting glances from other people and we didn't understand why.


“What's going on?” I asked.


“Right. I might have uploaded your guy's speech to my vlog.” Lukas replied.


“Oh.” was all Emery could say.


“Just so you know, if those tatties try something at the carnival, blood's on your hands.” Eric said before walking off.


“Don't listen to Eric. What you two did was seriously bad ass.” Zoe said.


“Thanks, Zoe.” Emery said.


After Zoe left, I noticed that Emery was looking at Grayson.


“Go talk to him, Em.” I told her.


Emery hesitated at first but finally went to talk to him with some fried pickles. I shook my head and just watched the exchange. I hope that they get together because they do make a cute couple. Julia then joined us and Taylor ended up needing more ticket scanners because some of her's were boycotting the carnival because the Atrian seven were coming. We went home after that and I hope that tomorrow goes better than today.


When Emery and I got to school the next morning, the principle made the announcement that the Atrian seven would be coming to the carnival and Eric was not at all happy about it.


“What's Eric's problem?” Emery asked Taylor.


“Ugh! His dad used to own this restaurant. It was a popular neighborhood joint over in Bunkhead.” Taylor started.


“Where they put the Sector?” I asked.


“Yup. People stopped coming around, and the place shut down. Now Eric's dad does a lot of drinking his breakfast.” Taylor finished before walking off.


Emery and I decided to try to talk to Roman again and hopefully it goes better than yesterday.


“Hey, I know you have no reason to listen to us, but we hope you come to the homecoming carnival tonight.” Emery said.


“So, you think that if we ride around in circles together on wooden horses at high speeds... that all of our problems will be solved.” Roman said.


“No, we... we just want to find a way to bring us together. All of us.” I said.


“I heard what both of you said to the board. Both of you tried to do a good thing. This is bigger than the three of us now. Maybe it's safer if we're apart.” Roman said before walking off.


Emery hugged me to her because she could tell that what Roman said really hurt me. Emery and I then headed on home to change clothes and I was hoping that this carnival would take my mind off of what was going on. Emery, Lukas, and I were talking to Julia when Grayson walked by. I was happy that he was here and I can't wait for them to start dating.


“Hey, guys. Here they come.” Lukas said.


“I thought you said he wasn't coming?” Julia asked.


“I guess he changed his mind.” I replied.


I was trying to enjoy the carnival but I couldn't get my mind off of Roman. Speak of the devil, Emery and I just happen to see Roman, so I guess we're going to go talk to him.


“We see you've had a change of heart.” Emery started.


“Or should we say hearts?” I finished.


“Emery, Lea, both of you need to leave.” Roman said.


“You really know how to sweep a girl off her feet.” Emery laughed.


“I think both of you could be in danger.” Roman said.


“What are you talking about?” I asked confused.


“There are a group of Atrians who want revenge for my father's death. They've targeted your family.” Roman replied.


“But they're in the Sector.” Emery said.


“Trust me, they're resourceful.” Roman said.


“There are guards everywhere.” I started.


“Don't you think that we would be safer in a crowd? Come on.” Emery finished.


Roman, Emery, and I walked off together and I was happy that at least we were all together. Roman stayed between Emery and myself and I could tell that something was really bothering him. It has to be more than just Emery and I being targeted but I'm not too sure.


“What is this place?” Roman asked as we walked up to this big rock.


“It's mammoth rock. It's a tradition for every new student to leave their hand print as a way of forever making their mark.” I started.


“Of course, rocks weather over time, especially in human climates, so it doesn't actually doesn't last forever.” Emery continued.


“Shut up (Roman had started to chuckle). Give me your hand. We may be from different worlds, but in some ways we're still the same.” I finished.


Roman ended up chuckling and I couldn't help but follow suit.


All three of us ended up placing our hands together on the rock and I ended up smack between Roman and Emery. I'm glad that we're doing this because Roman needs to understand that not all humans are evil.


“And now you're laughing at us.” Emery laughed as we took our hands off the rock.


“No. I'm not. Both of you have faith. The same kind of faith my dad had. And I can't explain why, but that feels good.” Roman said.


Is it weird that I actually want to kiss him right now?


“Roman. Have you seen Drake? I can't find him anywhere, and I'm worried about him.” Teri said as she walked up to us.


Roman looked at us and I could tell that he was only hesitating because of us.


“Go. We'll be fine.” I reassured him.


“Stay by the guards.” Roman told us before running off with Teri.


Emery and I were walking around when we saw Eric pushing a load of garbage around. I knew right then that something was wrong with that but I shrugged it off.


“Having fun?” Grayson asked as he walked up.


“More fun than your friend Eric.” I replied.


“Since when is he on trash duty?” Emery asked.


“What are you talking about?” Grayson asked completely confused.


Emery and I shared a look before all three of us followed after Eric. When we caught up to him, he was tying a tarp on the back of this truck.


“Eric. What's going on?” Grayson asked as we walked up to Eric.


“Nothing, man. I w... I was just taking off.” Eric replied.


I knew right then that something was off so Emery and I went to the truck and started untying the tarp.


“Oh, my God.” Emery and I said at the same time when we revealed that Drake was under the tarp tied up.


“What the hell are you doing?” Grayson asked angrily.


“Okay, hold on a minute...” Eric started but I interrupted him.


“This has gone way too far.” I growled.


“We caught him trying to run away.” Eric said.


Emery, Grayson, and I ignored him and went to untying Drake.


“No one touches him. Old alien Rambo here's got a lot of meat on them bones. The gators are gonna love him.” Vartan said as he walked up to us and looked over Drake.


“Whoa, whoa, whoa. Hey, I thought we were just gonna scare him a little but and then, you know, ditch him somewhere.” Eric said.


“Well, you don't make the plans. I do.” Vartan said.


“What's wrong with you?” I asked as Emery sort of hid behind me.


I was starting to get pissed off and I'm sick of these assholes going after the Atrian seven just because they think they can.


“Oh, I know you. You're that race traitor bitch, aren't you?” Vartan asked as he stepped closer to me.


“Security guards were right behind us. I don't think they take too kindly to vigilantes.” Grayson said as he stepped between Vartan and me and Emery.


“Hey... Come one. Don't look at them. Look at me.” Grayson said as he popped out a knife.


Emery and I clung to each other because we have no idea what the hell is going to happen.


“Hey. Eric. Boys.” Vartan said as everyone walked off.


I was so relieved by that but now we need to set Drake free.


“Get me the hell out of here.” Drake said.


“We're trying.” Emery said.


“Hold still.” I said.


“You tell anybody about this and you're dead. You hear me?” Drake said as he jumped out of the truck and walked off.


“You're welcome.” Grayson called after him.


All of us just shook our heads before walking away from the truck. Emery and I went home and I was happy to finally be home. As I was getting ready the next morning, I couldn't shake this feeling that I should be with Roman and his family. I shook it off, got dressed, and headed to school with Emery.


“Hey. We didn't get a chance to say good-bye after the carnival.” Emery said as we walked up to Roman.


Roman seemed to be looking all around us and that made me concerned.


“Roman? Is everything okay?” I asked as Roman looked back at us.


“It will be.” Roman replied before walking off.


As he walked past me, Roman brushed his hand with mine. It was a simple gesture but it meant the world to me and brought a smile to my face.


“Hey. Ready?” Grayson asked as he walked up to us.


“Yeah.” Emery replied as we started to walk off.


I glanced back at Roman and gave him a smile before continuing on with Emery and Grayson. After school, I decided to take a walk. I ended up at this field and the sun was just setting and the sky looked absolutely beautiful. I also had this feeling that someone was crying but I couldn't figure out who or why.


I headed on home and talked to Emery about it. Emery agreed with me on it being weird, but both of us decided not to stress over it because what was the point. This week has been so eventful and I wonder if every week is going to be like this. I guess we'll know as the weeks come.
