11. Butter (D1)

We stood some distance from the station, watching it. I had expected it to be bigger, tons of guards everywhere, prepared against any onslaught of criminal attacks. Goes to show how much I really knew about it all. I had pictured he’d be taken to a massive prison, but this was Juniper City. Too nice …

10. Butter (D1)

I slept like shit that night. Worse than all the previous nights. There’s something about knowing that you’re being hunted, being teased about being the next but never quite knowing when it’ll come. You can’t let your guard down ever, even while you sleep. I felt sorry for Juice. Lots of people live like that. …

9. Butter (D1)

AP went home eventually, we both did. I climbed into my room and stared at the ceiling, reimagining everything that had happened. Rerunning the events over and over again in a way I couldn’t when I had been with AP. My mind was taking me through the inner workings of the dull nightmare we all …

8. Butter (D1)

Figuring the front door too unlikely a place for the police to leave unlocked, we dashed straight over the side gate and checked the rear windows. One of the neighbors dogs must have caught wind of us, fuckin’ dog started going off like a maniac. I had already been on edge, now.  We stood still, …

7. Butter (D1)

They were claiming he had been high out of his mind, so far gone that he had killed his mom, but not just killed her, torn her apart in her room as she slept as if the devil had possessed him. The detectives were claiming that they had found him trying to break into a …

6. Butter (D1)

I don’t know why they decided to let me out of the room. Maybe a sense of guilt or some fucked up way of taking me through the ups and downs of a classic abusive relationship. Probably trying to turn me into a battered woman. *chuckle* I don’t know and I’m glad I don’t. What …

5. Butter (D1)

For the next couple of weeks it was smooth sailing. Every morning around the same time, the crew would come knocking at my window and I’d sneak out with them. They’d always be real careful to keep the noise down, just in case my aunt and uncle were still home.  We would clear our and …

Breaking into that house was one of the most nerve wracking things I’ve ever done. There were way too many people by the park so we went around and hopped over the fences of all the houses leading up to it. If anyone had been watching, we would have looked like we were going from …

3. Butter (D1)

As soon as I got home, my aunt was waiting by the door, belt in hand. I could hear the TV in the other room, letting me know my uncle was home too. “You know how long I’ve been sitting here?” she said, snapping the belt loud. I looked down at the floor and said, …

2. Butter (D1)

I couldn’t think about anything other than playing ball after school, hell, I don’t even remember going to class after that. Might as well have ditched and hung out at the park with how much of a fog in my own head I was in. When the bell rang, I zoomed out of there. Probably …
