Just That Kid 6: It HurtsKristy and Ian didn't even call while they were gone. Not one time. No checking up on their son. It was like I didn't even exist. But to them, did I?
Breylin stopped by the house two days after the accident with Andre. I still had black circles around my eyes, and definitely visible battle scars. I hadn't planned on seeing anyone, so I had no excuses.
I heard the tapping on the door, but ignored it and continued to read. There was a creak, and at that moment, I'd known that someone was entering my house. My heart jumped into my throat, in honest fear that I would get my face re-arranged again.
Hauling myself off the bed, I locked my bedroom door and ran for the closet. Once settled inside in a secure little ball, I heard footsteps lightly but quickly advancing up the stairs.
"Lore?" A familiar voice called.
Startled, I held my breath, trying to match the voice to a face.
My bedroom door opened slowly, and there were cautious steps inside. They stopped at the closet door.
