Kate's House

I find myself frantically bashing the door. What was that? The tall slim trees creaking and mocking me. Blocking the grey sky. Then I lock eyes, with something..
It had bright almost glowing yellow eyes and a- "hey, kassie" I sing back around. "Kates upstairs." A sigh of relief escapes my chest as I realise its Ace. i completely ignore him and go straight into the living room where I know she will be.

She's there, reading a book, like always. "What are you reading?" I say and she flashes a look at me. "Its called im back fuckers" and she puts it down and looks at me "dreams?"

"Well, I'm gonna' leave you two alone now" Ace says then peels of the door frame and walks into the hallway. Kate whippes her head around and then turns back and looks at me raising her eyebrows."Am I the only one who didn't know he was there?" She says.
"I don't know" I say my voice still croaky and sore. Kate burrows her eye brows with a concerning expression and looks at my eyes. Switching from eye to eye trying to look into my soul. "I don't..."
