Marcus opened his the front door of his car for me and I gladly entered with a soft smile. I put my seatbelt on as he climbed into the driver's seat.
"Are you hungry? Do you want to eat out first?" Marcus asked before starting the car.
I nodded, "I'm good; I also have a curfew."
Once the car started, he laughed and drove forward, "Lilac Dahlberg has a curfew. Why am I not surprised?"
"COME ON, CADELA!* VAMOS DANÇAR!^" Javier shouted though his head rang and then spat out saliva glazed with blood.
(In Portuguese via google translate: *bitch ^let's dance)
Dae-Hyun's cheek bone was throbbing, but his fists where still itching for contact.
They were being pushed away, far away from each other by their team mates but Javier's hot head and hotter words were pushing Dae-Hyun's temper.
"WHAT, LITTLE BOY? YOUR ZOMBIES WON'T DO YOUR DIRTY WORK FOR YOU!"
I made my way downstairs; it was 6am probably and I needed a glass of water. I waqs almost by the kitchen, but I froze in my spot after hearing the voices scream from the kitchen."What do mean you're on it?" my mother spoke, exasperated. "You've been telling me the same bullshit for months now!"There was a crashing sound that made me wake fully when I heard it. It sounded like a pot."I am working on it as hard as I can, woman! It's easier said than done!"I heard my mother huff, jaggedly, "It better get easier, or else, Ifuckingswear Alexander.""You fucking swear what, Bethany?!YOU'LLLEAVEME?!GO AHEAD I'M SO TIRED OF HEARING YOU SPIT OUT SHIT WHEN I'M ALREADYFUCKINGWALKING ON A KNIFE!"I shuddered at their voices that continued to blare on and felt tears start to well in my eyes.My dad kept barking on up until there was a lou
After my run, I slipped backed into my bedroom without being noticed at all thankfully. I tired to go to sleep again, but then I would think about everything that was happening and felt like crying. In other words... I did not get to sleep a wink, not in anyway that mattered. By the time it was approriate to wake up, I got dressed and ready for school. When I came across my mirror though, I looked like a train wreck. My eyes were puffy to a point where no makeup could really save it. I'll just pretend that I wanted to wear shades today. I'll put a hat on for extra effect. The next thing I knew, I was being called for breakfast. This was not part of the plan. I frantically bombarded the twins with texts. This was the favor I asked for earlier today. I refused to go down until I got a reply. Finally, just as my mom shouted for me in the tell-tale manner of anger, I recieved a text. I immediately head
Dae-Hyun forcefully dragged me by my wrist and lead me off to the lockers. Once we got in front of mine, I wrangled out of his grip with a wince, "You do know you could just ask me to go somewhere, right?" He looked at me expressionless, "And would you have followed?" I scoffed, "Well, now you'll never know,will you?" For a moment, we looked at each other until he got impatient and motioned to my locker, "Open it." I pulled my head back, "And why do you want me to do that?" He turned away from me and muttered something under his breath,"Ya,don't you usually do this thing anyway? I'd like for this to get over with, okay?" I scoffed yet again,"Why do you want me to do that?!" Dae-Hyun glared with a clenched jaw as he walked forward, "Because Iwantyou to." I huffed and crossed my arms, unable to stare him down out of the sheer idiocy he
Dae-Hyun didn't move which annoyed me, so I grabbed his shoes, placed them on floor and wiped off as much as I could. "YA!"Dae-Hyun bursted out,"neo mwohago issni?"*he continued with a softer voice. After looking at him for a moment, he took his shoes and put them back on though it still had syrup on it. He grabbed my hand and stood me up,"Meomchwo."^ Suddenly, he was dragging me away and I was confused as I was reluctant. pulled my hand away, "What are you doing? The syrup will--""Dagchyeo"° (In Korean, via g****e translate: *what are you doing? ^Stop it. °Shut up.") "What thefuckis Dae-Hyun doing?" Estrella fumed from the end of the hall as she watched the said man drag Lilac off. Her twin brother who was beside her clenched his fists, "More importantly, he put syrup in herfuckinglocker just so he could do
I walked into my first class, slumping down next to Kai who knit his brows at the sight of me."You a'right?"I huffed and gave him a look, "Do I look alright?"Kai made an uncomfortable face, "Is it...y'know... ...or the kings again?"I harshly bite my lower lip and blink rapidly. I scoff, "Clearly there's nothing else ill in my life, right? The world's sun is them."Kai knits his brows, taken aback. He offers a look and places a careful hand on my shoulder, "Hey... what's going on? Did they do something to you?"They're messing with my head. They're messing with my family. They're messing with my life.My silence makes Kai ever more warry. He pulls his hand back but leans in, softly asking, "do you want to talk about it?""Not really." I retort, focusing on Ms. Bedivere who was explaining something which just sounded like noises to me at this point.I offer Kai a look, but regret it, when I s
I didn't know where I was going, but I just ran and ran until I dumbly tripped, or as it seems, got tripped.It hurt when my knees connected with the floor, and my elbows and my palms, but I didn't feel like reacting to the pain."You should watch where you're going," a French accented voice called. The words I heard was like bile in my mouth. I gripped my hands and stood up. I see, indeed, Marcus, and hiss back, "fuck you."For a moment, he was stunned. For a moment, I thought of jumping him too. But then I turned around and started running again, realizing I had gone to his beloved spot in halllway. Oh mercy, your majesty."Hé!Who did that to you?" he called as I ran off.I scoff in my run, as if I would tell him anyway. He sounded like he was running after me, but the sound disappears eventually. Also, I couldn't care less.My heart was beating so fast. I felt like I could just drop dead.It see
After a really long day of genuine physical and mental torture, I looked forward to going home so badly. I had Kai drive me graciously. Though the wonder twins insisted on driving me, as they were the ones that picked me up in the first place, I refused them.When I got home, I knew it would be quiet. My older brother had work and so did my parents. Grandmother told me she and my younger sister would go out shopping, so I was pretty much safe.I removed Kai's extra helmet and thanked him."Call me if anything ever comes up, okay?" he says after taking the helmet from me, placing it in the back compartment, and vrooming away.I sniffled and wiped my nose, heading inside.I squeal at the sudden shout of my name."LILAC LOURDES DAHLBERG!"I turn to whomever spoke and easily found Roux. He was in the same clothing he woke up in, an indication he did noteven leave the house, meaning he lied about going to work
The next day, I decided to wait until after classes to go to the principal's office. I also decided against telling the gang about my plan, not because I didn't trust them or anything, but because I want this issue to be as small as possible. Kai, I think, was suspecting I was going to do something big today, which is why the rest started to suspect as well. But it was Gail that really caught on. "So you're not going to report them to the principal's office?" she poked during lunchtime as everyone else looked on her interrogation. She nearly made me crack and spill everything, but I kept my mouth shut. "For the millionth time Gail,shut up.We're just getting lunch;I'mjust getting lunch. Geez." "Honestly," Nina said as Cece asked from some pasta, "I think youshouldtell the principal what has been happening." "I agree," Cece chimes in. I suck in a breath as I ge
