I watched her from across the table. I watched the tears form in her eyes. I watched the expression on my mom's face turn to worry. I couldn't do anything. I felt so helpless. All I wanted to do was hug Thalia and tell her everything would be okay. She recited story after story of her home life. Broken glass; shed tears. The days she was beaten, the days sat in fear that her dad wouldn't come home and the days she thought they wouldn't even be able to pay rent. When she finished her story, she broke into a fit of sobs. In response, I placed my hand on her shoulder and she leant into my touch.
I couldn't sleep. I could hear her breathing beside me; I could almost feel her touch on my skin. I was facing the wall, listening to every rise and fall of her stomach. Scrunching my eyes shut, I breathed deeply, trying to drown out the thoughts of her. After barely three minutes, I gave up, turning around to see where she was laying- facing me. She was so peaceful. She was so beautiful. I breathed out slowly.I watched as her chest heaved up and down, watched the slight flutter of her eyelids
Kye's POVI watched them walk in together. She was so happy. To think I'd spent all morning worrying about what I was going to say- what I was going to do. I wondered if she'd ever l
Thalia's POVThere was something so special about her. I was a better person when I was with her; I was happier when was with her. For a long time, everything had fallen to pieces then she ju
There was a hole in my heart. The minute she'd walked away, a gaping hole began to grow and it hadn't stopped. Not even during the eight whole days, she'd ignored me. You'd think it were impossible to ignore someone you lived with but somehow she did. She slept on the floor- waking when I slept and sleeping when I woke. She left early and came home late. Even through the weekend, she'd been out. I had promised Ali I would spend the weekend with her and I had stayed true to that promise. Now, as the sun set on a full school week without seeing her face, I missed her touch, I missed her laughter. Kye's POVI didn't mean to do it. I was drunk and mad and so deeply in love that it just overcame me. I watched Mel look at that girl in a way she'd never looked at me. I watched Thalia's hand snake around her waist and I couldn't hold it in. I didn't want to hurt her. Okay, maybe I did. I wanted to hurt her for being able to capture the heart of the girl I could never quite clasp. Even as I screamed at her, I could feel every ounce

I shut the curtains and turned to Thalia who was sprawled out on my bed."Get up!" I moaned, shoving her aside a little and plonking myself on the bed right beside her. W
Thalia's POVWhat does it mean to be human? Does it mean to love so deeply you can form a crack in your own heart? Does it mean to rise up after being shoved onto the dirt? Does it mean to be normal? What is normal? I've asked these questions my whole life. I'd never realised how much one day can change your life. One person.
I rubbed my thumb in circles on her hand. This moment was so perfect. While I was dating Kye, I thought love would come with time, but while I was wrapped in her embrace I was falling. Quicker and quicker. The more seconds the clock ticks down, the further I fell. We were sat by a small fire we had made as the stars flickered like fireflies in the distance. Every breath she took, I felt her chest expand against mine. We hadn't talked that much about the kiss. The kiss... I'd never felt something more real as the feeling that erupted from my heart at that moment. I trailed my hands slowly through her thick auburn hair.
