Huge writer's block for the longest time…sorry
I sat there, numb, as Leo banged pots and pans in the kitchen getting me something to eat. I stared at the TV, it was muted but I could read the crawl at the bottom; Murdered Policeman's daughter still missing. And leads please call local police. Miss Murder stays silent about the events that occurred….Police say this isn't the first time she's done it…Miss Murder…The TV flickered off and the name the police had given my step-mother disappeared as Leo stood behind me with a tray of food.
"You shouldn't be watching that." He scolded, bringing the tray around and laying it on my lap.
"Yeah I should be back there taking care of my father's burial." My voice was low as I twirled my spoon into the chicken noodle soup.
"He was a good man, I'm sure his squad will take care of arrangements."
"You didn't know him!" I yelled, "He is a good man…" and my tears started all over. "I need to go back. I need to."
"What you need to do is calm down." Leo's voice was firm as he put his arm around my shoulder. I would have shrugged it off but then I would have had scolding hot soup all over me, so as much as I wanted to I stood still. "Calm down, eat, and then we'll talk. I promise."
So I ate in silence, I could hear Leo's breathing close beside me as he made sure I ate every single drop of soup and drank my milk because even werewolf girl's need to grow big and strong according to Leo.
"Ok, fine, I'm done." I placed the tray on the coffee table in front of me as Leo sighed. "Let's talk."
"You can't go back…there's no going back now."
"I didn't choose this! I didn't want this! I want to go home!"
"Your father is dead….your mother is dead….your step mother is a murderess. You don't have a home outside this one Kira. Just stay, you'll have everything you ever wanted here…within reason." He smiled at that last part and I wanted to hit him.
"I want my father….I want my life back….I want to go home!" I yelled jumping off the couch. "I don't want this!"
"Well you have it!" He was standing now too, and with his height he towered over my at 6'3, "You need to calm down! You need to sit your little butt back down and talk about this like a civil human being!"
"That's the problem! I'm not human anymore!" I felt madder than I've ever been before, all my sadness turned to rage and it was all at Leo. "And I'm not talking to you…I'm not talking to anyone! Leave me the hell alone!" I tried to storm away from him to find the door out of this hell hole cause I was going back home…I was going to find Uncle Jack and bury my father.
"Where the hell do you think you're going?" Leo's voice was low…deadly and low.
"Finding a way out of here, I'm going to say goodbye to my father and I'm going home!" Before I knew it Leo had my on the ground.
"Get off of my you fat oaf!" I was kicking and screaming now as Leo lay on my back before flipping my over. "Let me go! Let me go! Let me go!"
Leo's face, which had been angry and serious was now cracking a smile. Then he burst out laughing at me.
"What the hell are you laughing at? Let me go!"
"I'm laughing at you! You look ridiculous, like a rabid animal." He was cracking up laughing as I puffed my bangs out of my face so I could see.
"Ugh! Get off of me you idiot!" he was looking into my eyes now…his laughter trickling off as his eyes moved down to my lips. And his face got closer to mine before I turned my head to the side. I mean I didn't know him….I just found out my father was murdered…and Nick and Antonio were standing in the doorway. "Get off of me!"
"It seems like I always walk in on you guys at the wrong time." Nick snapped before walking down the hallway as I heard a door slam.
