Lilly left the school, she didn't really know,where she was going, then again she didn't really care. "I'll prove you wrong father and mother, I'll prove you right," she said to herself as she walked down the street.
Makenzie stayed in the doorway until there weren't too many kids left, then he shouldered his way through the remaining kids. Once he was outside, he glanced left and right eenie meenie miney mo.
Makenzie shrugged and went left, he never went home until he was sure his parents were either out or asleep. They were the only ones who asked questions and he wasn't in the mood to talk. Not after what they'd allowed...
Monikya threw her stuff down on the floor and went back outside. She sat on her front steps and watched the cars go by. She waited to see if she would recognize anyone walking home.
Makenzie tripped over the lip of the sidewalk, barely catching himself before he fell. He glanced around hoping no one had seen. When his wandering eyes crashed into the blonde from earlier, he almost smiled.
Makenzie paused in his walk to nowhere, wondering if she'd say something or not. If she didn't then he'd find somewhere else to go.
Lilly stopped, she didn't know where she was. She was just somewhere. She spotted one of the boys from her class, and she noticed he paused in his steps. She smiled ruefully before tentatively stepping over to him.
"Where ya headed?" She questioned quietly.
Monikya saw two kids from class meet in front of her house and she sighed. My house isn't a freaking mall. You can't hang out here. She thought. She wanted to see if they were going to leave, or if she needed to scare them away.
Makenzie looked over his shoulder, then turned to reply to the girl properly. "Not home," He offered with a tiny smile. He let his eyes slide back over to the blonde and decided to walk away. Maybe she's just wired hostile...?
Makenzie took a couple tentative steps down the sidewalk, waiting for the girl to follow. She wouldn't have started up a conversation if she wasn't going to stick around.
Lilly glanced back at the girl and grimaced. God how she hated territorial people. She shook her head and stepped after the boy. Honestly she couldn't care but that horrid house is not a home, not since..."Same here. So what's up with you?" She asked almost harshly. She really hated getting into people's business but when there's nothing else to talk about, what could she do?
Monikya sighed and realized she was being rude. "It's ok, you don't have to leave." She called. She felt bad and wanted them to come back. She was actually really lonely.
((Oh my god sorry i couldn't respond. TI wasn't letting me on...))
((Author it's fine :) We haven't gotten very far it's ok. TI does that to me too :P ))
((Okay ^.^ just making sure things didn't race ahead while i was absent))
((Have not raced ahead (: ))
Makenzie stopped and turned back. He asked the question he'd been meaning to. "Are you alright?" There was sincere concern in his voice, hopefully it carried across to the blonde.
"What do you mean? What's up like what am I up to or what's wrong with me?" Makenzie directed towards the girl standing beside him. Pond something, right? Yeah... pond, pond, pond- Oh! Lilly. Alright.
Monikya sighed. "I think I'm ok. I'm Monikya, you're in my science class. Mrs. Hitle is crazy, huh?"
"I mean, what's your story? Everyone has a story of what made them who they are. What's yours?" Lilly nodded to the girl.
Monikya looked away. "I don't have a story. I'm just here, right now. That's it."
Lilly shrugged her shoulders and turned to the guy, "What about you? What's you story?" She cocked her head in mock interest. Everyone has a secret or event that made them the way they are, God knows she does and it's worse than anyone could imagine.
Monikya smirked. "Why do you care? I mean, it's not like you're going to tell us. So why ask us? Besides, I don't even know you." She said, defensive, but not rudely.
Makenzie grinned at Monikya. "Glad to hear you're fine. I was kind of worried..." He let his voice trail off.
"My story is I'm a 19 year old still in high school who's playing catch-up." Makenzie shrugged and didn't even have force the lie out, it came naturally to his lips. It really scared him how comfortable he was with how he treated people now. Parts of him resented it and openly hated the new parts.
Monikya smiled. "You were worried? About me? Why?"
