Shadows of pain Ripping at our souls Shadows hiding afraid to be seen Shadows darker than a moonless night Shadows only seen in the mirror of life Shadows owned by the wearer Thanks to another I have this new post.
Love, who understands Named by millions Misused by more No two the same Yet we seek it Long for it Even kill In hopes to find it If by chance we do We’ll toss it aside Lost in some concept Never finding the truth
at the note Raven had passed him: I need to talk to you. For God sake
please meet me in back of Saint Mary’s before the party.
Great. I go
out with her one time a month ago and now she thinks she owns me. Why in the
hell did I let the guys talk me into dating her? “She likes you, Jack.”
“She is easy.” “She’ll date anyone.” Just then a piece of paper hit me.
What the hell! Is this note day or something? I unfolded it was from
Bill. Locker room after class.
Bill through the Locker room door and before the door could even close he
shoved me against the wall.
fire in his eyes and started yelling. What have you done? Do I have to lead you
around everywhere by the hand like some little kid? JoAnn just told me
Raven is pregnant. Don’t you know what a fucking rubber is? The morning
after pill? Shit, you’re the number one goalie in the state and I’m the
number one defender. Do you think R.O.U. will pay you extra to be toting
a kid around? Much less a wife. She is going to have her hand so
deep in your pocket. You do remember what the R.O.U. scout said?
The two of us- not you, not me, not one without the other. Fuck, just
stay away from me you, ass hole. Bill stomped out of the locker room.
What in the
hell is he so worked up about? Shit, it’s not like her kid couldn’t be
anyone of the guys on the soccer team. I know I was not the first or the
last. I’ll tell her she it’s my word against hers. Everyone in town
knows what kind of girl she is. They would never believe her over me.
see Saint Mary’s across the street. She had put on her nicest
dress. She wanted Jack to be as happy for her as she was. She had
always wanted a baby and why not Jacks baby. For years she had a crush on
him. She know he lived and breathed soccer. That is all he would
talk about in school. She would not take that away from him.
They could live together at the dorm then after he got out of R.O.U. they could
get married. No one needed to know but him. Some of the girls keep
asking her. They didn’t know. All she told them was she was going to live
with a sick Aunt up north for the rest of the school year. She thought
she saw Jack wearing the devils costume. She kissed her father goodbye
and started across the street.
watched her go behind the church. Hell, Bill and Jack have been friends
for too long to let some slut come between them. When he got home he’d
call Jack and tell him what he needed to do so Raven would never bother them
again. If Jack just had the balls to do it she would never tell a soul
whose kid it was. Bill took his little brothers hand and started up the
sidewalk to Raven’s house he heard it was going to be one hell of a party
Jack over by the Oak tree. When she placed her hand on his shoulder he spun
around and placed his hand over her mouth pulled out a large knife and with all
his might he sunk it as deep as he could into the tree next to her head.
Now tell someone whose baby you think it is. Then Jack turned and walked
uncontrollable, Raven slid down the tree. Raven turned her head just
enough to watch Jake walk away.
“Are you okay, young lady?” a soft voice asked
Raven looked up and
saw a three foot tall person dressed like a lawn gnome. “Do I look
okay? The father to my baby just tried to kill me. I hate him I
wish he was dead.”
The Gnome looked at
her. “Would you give even,” then he smiled and leaned in closer and
whispered something in Ravens ear.
“Yes, even that!”
Jacked had just stepped out into the
street when he heard the tires squealing and felt the car hit him. He
felt something hit him in the back and his body wrapping around it with a loud
Raven’s father saw the whole thing even Jack hit the fireplug. From the
way his head hit his feet he knew the young man’s back was broken and he was
dead before he slid to the sidewalk. Raven father ran down the steps to
check on the man and his shoulder hit someone. Bill flew backwards off
the steps and landed on his back in the flower bed. Bill started coughing
up blood. He looked down to see one of Ravens Garden Gnome’s head sticking out
of his chest looking back at him. Raven stood up and started laughing.
Jack got what he deserved. All she wanted was to get out of this
damn town. Now all she has to do was lie to some other dumb ass jock
about being pregnant and sucker him into getting her out of
here. She heard low growling behind her and turned to see four
demons within inches of her. They looked hungry and were smiling. She
tried to scream but it was too late. You
could hear laughter in the wind. “Yes not just one but all of their
