A Fresh Start - Chapter 8 (Final)
"One month has passed. Pierce left town, and my heart is still broken. However, I've been crying less and less which is a good sign. I still miss him, but I guess I got to learn to live life without him. Maybe I should hang out with Serene or maybe even Walker and Daisy more often. Hopefully I'll move on."
"Why did I even agree to this?" Pierce says, looking in a mirror. He sighs, and looks at his small amounts of rewards from competitions. 10:15 the clock reads. Feeling his blood boil, Pierce lifts up a few packed up boxes, and brings them out to the car that brought him here. Dumping them, he awaits midnight for his escape.
"Why do you think he hasn't sent any letters, or even a phone call?" I say to Serene, twisting the phone cord.
"Maybe he wants to come back eventually, all cheesy and romantic?" she replies.
"But what if he doesn't come back? And what are the odds he likes me—or did?"
"I'm not sure, Jared. But I need sleep. Goodnight." Serene says, hanging up the ph
A Fresh Start - Chapter 7
Many months pass, and many changes happen throughout the town. The train station is fully built, and a train now comes in and out of town. A few shops move to the new shopping mall as well. Everything seems as blissful as can be. Mid-April, a rainy day is seemingly normal.
"Hey Jared!" Serene yells from a pine tree, holding a pretty yellow umbrella.
"Hi Serene!" I say, walking up to her, holding up my umbrella, shaped like a leaf.
"How's Pierce?" she asks. I blush, and respond delightfully. Nodding, she walks over to her house, inviting me in.
"You two are just so cute! But bleh, let's stay inside. I'm tired of rain." She says, as I agree. "Want some juice?"
"That'd be nice!" I say, nodding happily. She gets out two glasses, and pours the juice in them on the counter. Leaving them there, she opens the door, as she hears a slam on it. A big blue eagle walks through the door, putting his eyes on me.
"Hey Jared." Pierce says, smiling.
"H-hey." I say, as I look up at him. No matter how m
A Fresh Start - Chapter 6
"Jared, so you're telling us that Joey pushed you into your home, held you hostage, and cut you whenever you screamed? Then tried to sexually assault you and Pierce saved you?" Copper asks.
"Yes, Mr. Copper."
"Joey this is unlike you. We'll be keeping you longer. Jared, Pierce, you're free to go." Booker says, opening the door.
"I'm sorry for this, Pierce." I say, as we walk out of the Police Station.
"It's alright " he says lowly. We walk back to his house.
"I'm just going to go." I say, nodding. I turn away, and my nose starts pinching, like I'm about to cry. A few minutes later, I bump into Serane.
"Oh, hello. Your name's Jared?" she asks.
"Yep." I respond.
"You look down "
"Come with me, Jared." She says, grabbing my hand. She drags me to her house. As we walk in, I see Rosie, sitting on a bed with a tea set next to her. Serane nudges me to sit next to Rosie, who hands me a warm cup of tea.
"We thought that everything you went through you'd want som
