Chapter | 05
I want to be
"Bye Ashley!" I waved to Ashley.
"Bye Lexi!" She shouted back.
I turn around and walk home. Today mom and dad promised me to bring me to the park. They said we will have a family moment since we hardly spend time together.
And I can't wait! I have been wanting to spend time with them for a while!
I ran quickly home and open the door.
"Mom! Dad! I'm home!"
I drop my book sack and threw my shoes off. I ran to the living room and was about to ask my mom when we were going until I saw blood.
I stop in my track and whispered, "Mom? D-Dad?!"
I ran to them and saw them on the floor cover with their blood.
I drop to my knees and cry. No this can't be. Mom and dad promised that they will be with me and always protect me! I check them to see if there was a way for them to live. I look at them and saw a huge cut on dad's neck.
Mom on the other hand was still alive but her heartbeat was slowing down.
"Mom?" I chock out.
"S-sweetheart." She raises her hand.
I grab it.
"Find someone who will love and protect you forever."
"B-but mama. What if I do-"
Her hand drops to the ground as her eyes became lifeless. I broke down as I realize that both my parents are officially dead. I cried for what seemed like years until I saw someone behind me. I turn and see a man with a mask.
"You're next," he said before raising the knife.
~~End of Flashback~~
"ahhhh!" I jump straight up.
I place my hand on my heart and try calming down.
"It was just a dream, Alexis. Calm down." I said to myself.
I heard someone groan beside me. I looked to my right and saw Ashley slowly waking up.
"What happened," she mumbled.
"Nothing," I said calmly.
She snapped her eyes open and stared at me.
"We both know that is a lie."
I gulp. Sometimes I wonder if she can read my mind or something.
"Ok. Fine. I had another nightmare."
She sat up and gave me a tight hug.
"Poor poor Lexi. You don't deserve this. How are you though? Are you ok? Do I need to get Peter to bring over some Nutella so we can watch Anastasia?"
I opened and close my mouth.
"That's a good idea. But don't we have school soon?"
She checked her phone.
"School starts in 3 hours. Luckily I got plenty of sleep. Now let me call Peter."
He answered on the 5th ring.
"Hey! Bring me some Nutella! I know it's 3:40 in the morning! Just give it to me! Why? Well, Lexi had another nightmare, now hurry up!"
"Ok, he's coming with the chocolate."
5 minutes later Peter came with Nutella, mumbling about how lazy we are.
As we ate we watched Anastasia. I cried as I learn about the real-life version of Anastasia. Poor Ana, but their father deserved it.
Things I almost remember,
And a song someone sings,
Once upon a December..."
"The song is playing!"
I hum the song as I ate Nutella. The song was so calming and it expresses many emotions.
I was about to go to sleep when Dimitri's yelling startled the life out of me.
"HEY! What are you doin' in here!"
"Dang! That part always startles me," I mumbled.
"Same. One day I'm going to have a heart attack because of Dimitri."
I guess I won't be going back to sleep anytime soon.
~~End of the movie~~
"THEY KISSED!" I shouted.
I wiped my tears away as the movie end.
"That was beautiful"
"Yup. Now it's time for...school."
"Aw, man. Indeed."
We took turns getting ready which took quite a long time. As we walked outside we were stopped by Peter.
"You guys were so fucking loud!"
"Sorry. But not sorry. I was watching my childhood movie, of course, I would be freaking loud!"
"Now. Let's go eat breakfast."
We all walked to the kitchen to see our breakfast made. I instantly drooled. My aunt can cook for life!
*If you guys don't like it imagine it as whatever breakfast you want*
"Omg! Thank you, Lisa! This is delicious!"
"Your welcome! Glad you guys enjoyed it."
She looked like a proud mama as she looks at us eating her food.
"Indeed. This is amazing!"
"Thanks, mom," Peter said.
We finished our chocolate waffles and head to the garage.
"I'm driving this time!" Peter insisted.
In 5 minutes we arrived, which is shocking since he normally takes forever. I open the door and somehow manage to fall flat onto the ground. I groan as Peter grabs my hand and helps me up.
I hugged him. But I was taken away from him the moment my skin touched his. I looked up and to my horror it was Blake.
"Uh uh. Let me go, " I told him, wiggling my wrist away from his grip.
"No! He could be a killer for all we know!"
"You are embarrassing me."
"I don't care."
Ashley and Peter quickly came to my aid and rip me away from Blake's hold. He refused at first but soon he let go of me.
"So you're not a killer?"
Peter looks at Blake weirdly before answering, "no. I'm her cousin and last time I checked I don't remember being a killer in my past lives"
Blake looks at the both of us and probably saw the resemblance since he let out a small, "oh" before quickly apologizing. He left with his hand pulling down his face while his ears were turning bright red.
"Well, Blake is not what the rumors say, " Peter mumbled to himself.
I couldn’t agreed more.
