Chapter 1:Time Is Short
It feels like you’re screaming, but no one can hear. The tears, the strain, the gun, silence… how can I be at this very moment? Is life worth this much pain? The hatred pools in like a ocean, the fake smile becomes your best friend. I have been used, tricked, lied to. I can’t ever imagine this is what humans go through, but I guess it could be worse… like me. The rain is heavier then usual, now I will be completely soaked when I get home from school. It’s strange, how peaceful the sounds of a simple thing like rain can be so elegant. Pitter patter, pitter patter, over and over again, banging in my ears like drums. “Hey do you ever pay attention?” My body wobbled while I looked behind me “huh?” A girl was running at me at full speed. “You need to pay attention, I was yelling your name Fox” I notice that voice anywhere, “Oh, sorry Ash… I was thinking”. That’s all I could come up with? Geeze what a joke. Ash frowned “You ok Foxy? I know the guy you like totally ignores you but you have me girl!” Ash is super sweet,kind and just plain perfect. And when I say perfect, the long hair, geen eyes, golden tone skin, oh and adding the slit black hair.”Ehh? I’m fine, I was just distracted, thanks for caring Ashy”. I have known Ash since middle school, but we act like sisters. Ash gave me a quick wink and we both started to walk again, and of coarse she starts to splash in the puddles. I do wonder, if she would give me that sweet smile if she knew what I was. Me and Ash both stopped infront of my house, “I will see you around Foxy,and um.. if you need to talk I’m here!” If only that was true, if only. “Y-Yeah, see ya Ash”, I don’t know what’s worse, lying to her or telling her the truth about me.” Hey! I’m home!” My mom walked out before me, the pain in my cheek sparked. “How dare you think to tell the truth!” I forgot, my mom hates humans, she hates there exsistance. “How about you get out of my head mom?” my teeth grinded together. My mom stood tall, shaking her head she kicked me to the floor “you are a pathetic excuse for a daughter, get out of my sight”. My feet ran,ran, I want to fly, but I have no wings, I gently shut my door, sliding down to darkness, my knees as a embrace. My head filling the words of Ash “If you need to talk, I’m here” I….I want to, but I cant. Tears streamed like waterfalls, like every hit I took, every insult, but I can never scream. The worst pain is no sound, and I wish I was normal, human. I have less then a year until I die, I will tell Ash when my time is almost done. I hope she sees me as a monster so she doesn’t cry. I hope she hates me in the end, and finds someone new, finds love, and keeps fighting for her life. My hands shook with the gun in my hands, trigger, fire. The sound echoed throughout the house. The body of the girl fell to the floor, lifeless, and sadden.
