Chapter 1: Just Got Out

The sun was bright for being so early in the day, and I pulled my sunglasses out of the glove compartment of the car. It was unfortunate that the jailhouse happened to be towards the east of town, because I was driving right into the light.
The station had called earlier saying that Dally was being let out early and that I'd better be there to pick him up this time, or he'd get sent to the big prison in the city. Dally'd caused enough trouble already to be sent in, but they kept him here because he wasn't of legal age yet to go.
I pulled up to the jail and parked the car in the parking lot. I shut the car off and closed my eyes for a minute. I hadn't slept well the night before because of the party Buck had had going downstairs, an then I'd had to get up to come get Dally. With a final sigh, I opened the car door and headed for the main doors to the jail.
"Hello, Baker." I took off my sunglasses as I stepped into the building and looked over at the officer sitting behind the counter.
"Hey, Jeff." I said with a smirk. "I'm here to take Dal off your hands, again." The officer looked at a stack of papers he had and nodded before heading out back to get Dally.
I walked around the small room as I waited, grinning when Dally came out through the back doors. He smirked at me as the cop gave him back the pocket knife he always kept with him and undid the hand cuffs.
"Hey, Dally." I said as he came around towards me. "Did ya have fun?" He smirked at me as we walked out.
"Always." He said. As I pulled the keys from my pocket, he made a grab for them, but I pulled back just as time. I laughed as he scowled.
"You driving after being in jail for a month and a half is probably not a good idea." His face curled up in a smirk and he stepped toward me, causing me to back into the car.
"I think it's a good idea." Dally said as he leaned in and gave me a kiss. I stood still for a moment, soaking in his touch. Until I felt the keys leave my hand. Dally pulled back and smirked as he waved the keys in front of me. I scowled and made a move for them, but he took a step back and held them out of my reach.
"Jerk." I said as I walked around to the passenger side of the car. It was Buck's old T- Bird, but he let me use it.
"But you stick around anyway." He said as we pulled out of the parking lot and headed back for Tulsa. I rolled my eyes and rolled down the window. It was getting later on into fall, and the nights were cold, but the days were still warm.
The ride back home was fast, with Dally speeding around town, narrowly slowing down to the right speed when we approached the corner where the police normally sat.
"One day Dallas." I said as we screeched into the yard in front of Buck's place. "You're going to get us killed by taking those corners on two wheels." Dally just smirked and got out of the car. I followed him up the front steps and up to the bedroom we shared at Buck's.
"I think you're going crazy." He said as he tossed his jacket onto the bed and pulled off his t-shirt. I sat down on the bed and propped my elbow on my knee, I rested my chin in my hand and watched as he rummaged through the drawer where he kept his clothes.
"I missed you." I said suddenly. He turned and looked at me before standing straight to pull on the white t-shirt in his hand.
"Look at you turning sappy." He said as he walked over to the bed and sat down beside me. "When'd you turn into a girly girl." I gave his shoulder a shove and leaned back against the wall the bed rested beside.
"If I was a girly girl, Dal." I said as he sat back against the wall beside me. "I'd complain about the sleeping arrangements all the time." Dally laughed.
"You complain about it anyway." He said and I stuck out my tongue.
"That's just when the parties got too loud." Dally shrugged and leaned back against the wall for a moment, closing his eyes. I smiled and took his hand.
"Are you tired?" I asked. He smirked and opened his eyes to look at me.
"You know how it is; sleeping with one eye open." I nodded and stood up.
"Yea, well you can sleep later. We should go show everyone that you're out of the cooler, again." Dally sighed and stood up.
"Fine then, let's go now." He grabbed his jacket from the end of the bed and pulled it on as we made our way back downstairs and out the door. Little did we know, that our lives were going to be changed forever. Just from our decision to leave the house.

re8622: The Last Exodus quickly grabbed my attention. Almost as soon as I started reading the story, I couldn't put it down. I found that the ideas the author put forth were very thought provoking given the turmoil we have seen gradually rise over the last several years. I felt that I could understand th...

263Adder: Okay so I adore this story. I only knocked one star off plot for historical inaccuracies because I'm a bit of a stickler for that. The ending broke my heart though, considering you already changed history couldn't you (SPOILER) change it a bit more and have them together!!!! I want an alternative...

sujitha nair: What's so distinct about this story was that it could easily be real. Praveena can be your classmate, neighbor or that girl you saw at the coffee shop today. The important decisions she makes and the dilemmas she faces, remind us of our own twisted lives.

Kevin Brand: My overall rating: 4.8/5 starsLoved. Every. Second. Everytime I came back to continue reading I got this overwhelming feeling of getting hooked on the first sentence...

Jason Phang: I'm pretty new to Inkitt (this is only my 4th book) and I must say I've been thoroughly impressed by the quality of the authors here. Remnants of Chaos is an excellently written book that hooks the reader, and doesn't let go. There are some grammatical and typographical errors, but nothing too se...

littlebunnypoopoos: Omg this was so amazing! The ending was a little bad and predictable. But otherwise, I need a second book or I'll die :D The character development was excellent and the whole romance, action, and suspense was superb

dd1226: I love reading about other countries and I think this story about Cambodia after Polpot creates awareness of the tragedy that happened there and the actions of the U.N. to hold elections. The heroine of the story is easy to relate to, a modern, middleaged woman looking for an adventure, wanting t...

genlynne2379: I read the other review of this book and I must say that I disagree with it wholeheartedly. I do not believe the author put the apostrophes in the names just to be unique, but because the characters are supposedly of a different race than humans. They are Anmah. They should have different names a...

Alisha Banks: You have me hooked! I immediately upon finishing the first book had to start the second. It is a captivating story and I can't wait to finish the other two book! I will definitely be recommending this book to others to read!

Roy Jenner: I was pleased to join the action where this B-17 was limping back across the English Channel defying all odds. Obviously written by a person more than familiar with the interior of the Flying Fortresses that were familiar in the skies of Southern England during World War 2. Plenty of action here ...
