This dress is so tight... I thought to myself as I wiggled and tried to straighten the dress out on my hip.
"Sure you'll be fine on your own?."Nana asked as she pulled into the Sterling Enterprises parking lot.
"Yeah I guess, thanks again..." I said to Nana.
She won't be able to attend Lance's welcome party today, because she had a late shift at the Gazette. So I'm gonna be stuck here alone, well with Lance till whenever this party ends.
"By the way you look really pretty in that gown."
"Thanks." I replied courtly as I felt my cheeks turn crimson.
She had purchased this dress for me at a thrift store close to our apartment. It was the last of it's kind, and it was place for auction, I wonder how she was able to pull that off. Anyways I'm so happy she got it for me.
"I have something for you Kara!." She had said to me as I not
Three years ago...~Lance POV~Today was my parents 13th wedding anniversary, so they suggested we just have a nice family dinner, well since my Dad always came back late from work, the dinner was till little after dark so he could meet up.Three years ago when they were celebrating their tenth, we had had a grand celebration here at the manor in honour of a decade, but this year was different they wanted it quiet and just the three of us in attendance.Lately my dad has always been preoccupied with work, and he had not been able to spend time with us, so today was just like a family get together or reunion.It was already 6:39pm, dinner was scheduled for 7:15pm, I had nothing to do and my Dad wasn't yet back from work, my Mom however was downstairs ensuring every was in perfect order.I decided to put on one of my favorite outfits, even if it was
~Lance POV~"Hey Lance, please would you come out of your Father's... Study now?." My Mom asked in a pained raspy tone.I'd been in here for the past three days, since my Dad was put six feet under. It just wasn't the same no more.No more late night conversations, no more Saturday golf practice, no more father-son time, no more don't tell your Mom.He is gone forever. Now I know what it feels like to lose someone, they leave a hollow feeling in your life that you can literally feel in your heart.I literally felt like I was twisted and turned inside out. I couldn't feel nothing save for the numb and hollow feeling like something was definitely missing in my life. And yes, something was...Did I say something?... I meant someone!.When we returned from the funeral I just didn't want to see no one no more, I honestly wished I'd died alongside. The
~Lance POV~"You'll have to try harder than that!." Kara said to me as she blocked one of my blows.I smirked and lunged at her.We have been practicing and training for the unknown, we just believe that when everything goes down and the puzzle finally fits properly, we'll need all the fighting skills we can summon.Drew had taken it upon himself to ensure our training goes well, but he took a break few minutes ago. Kara and I decided to continue.We were training at the roof top my manor, it was leveled and had a wall barricade around, the view from up here was perfect. I did my best to make sure I didn't look over the edge because that's when I realized how high up we were and it was sorta scary.Through several grunts, tackles, quacks, blows, blocks and locks, Kara finally pins me down..."Tap out, I've got you this time!." She exclaimed as she breathed
Seven years ago..."You still haven't told me where we are headed yet!." I whined."The sooner you stop asking questions, the sooner you'll find out!." Daniel said to me calmly.I'd been leaving with him for the past three years now. Since he took me from my home after my Mom left me. It's been three years now and she hasn't reached out to me, not even a phone call.Daniel keeps saying she'll come back soon, soon, soon, soon, three years has gone by now and he was still lighting the torch of hope in my life.There's only so much an eight year old can take in, I still haven't seen my Dad, I don't even know what he looks like and the most painful part was that he was still alive. Then my beloved mother... I don't even want to think about her right now.Well Daniel right here, has been my senior and responsible brother for the past three years, he ha
Parting is such sweet sorrow, that I shall say goodnight till it be morrow- Shakespeare.***Continuation from chapter 18...***"I'm sorry ma'am but you can't go beyond this point!." The nurses said to me as they wheeled Nana on a stretcher into the emergency ward surgery theater.How did my life result to this?.One moment we were finding clues in a hidden dome and the next we were in a hospital, watching one of our own having a close call.As the doors to the surgery room closed and doctors and nurses rushed in to begin surgery on Nana, real horror struck me as I watched from the glass.What if she doesn't make it?. Who
~Lance POV~As we entered into the room, Nana was lying unconscious on the hospital bed, she was put on life support and an oxygen mask covered her nose and mouth.The only sound in the room was the gentle beeping of the life support monitor until Kara started to sob again.I didn't know exactly what to say to comfort her so I just held her close to my chest and place my chin over her head.Looking at Nana lay helplessly on the bed, brought horrid thoughts to my mind. Thoughts that brought tears to my eyes.I didn't even know I was crying till I felt something tickle my cheek and I sniffed. I did my best to get myself back together, I didn't want to add to Kara's problems.Luckily she didn't say anything, she just looked up at me and lowered her head back again.Little did she know...Was I crying because of Nana, not really but I was conc
Today was school, since we haven't been attending school for a while now, Lance and I had lots of catch up to do.We didn't even have enough time to be home schooled so we just took the time off, but we were ready to resume now.I woke up feeling bleak and gloomy, it wasn't the same waking up in an empty apartment... Without my Nana.I took my bath, put on my uniform, fixed myself a nice breakfast of cereals and milk.Lance was supposed to pick me up for school today and I'll be staying at his Manor until Nana recovers.I had packed my duffle bag and luggage. So that once he comes, I'd just dump them in his trunk, and after Drew drops us off, he'll take them to the manor.I'm going to miss this apartment and it's homey feeling, I can't wait for Nana to come back to me.I heard a car honked outside, as I looked out the window, I saw Lance's car, I
RECAP..."Anyways have you seen Master Lance, we have to get going!" He said to me ignoring my messy look."Well that's weird because Lance's is always out here before me!." I rocked on my heels causing more water to drip from my body."I know...""Ok I'll just leave my bag here, maybe he is in the archery range and lost track of time!."I flicked my wet hair and went dashing in the direction of the Archery range.END OF RECAP!.***On my way there I bumped into Sam in the hallway. The archery range was behind the school and the fastest way to get there was through the school building.Actually our school environment was kinda circular, so that the school's main building is in the middle of the entire surrounding, so lots of fun stuff
