~Chapter 1~

Athena’s P.O.V
First day of school, I’ll be a Junior, this year. Same as my brother. I groaned when the sunlight hit my face. I looked over at my alarm clock and saw that it had just started to go off. I wasn’t ready for this first day, I missed my dad.
My dad left awhile ago, for a business trip I think, but he hasn’t answered my phone calls or have told mom when he was going to come home. Usually, when its the first day, my dad would walk into my room and wake me up, as he was excited to get us kids out to school.
He would then make an awesome breakfast and drive us to school, wishing us to have a great day, but this was the first time he has missed a day like this. I got up and opened my closet, picking out an outfit out of the new school clothes that my mom and I got a few weeks before.
I decided that one of my WWE Lita shirts would do with some shorts, since I had a feeling it was going to be hot out. My phone started buzzing, as I looked over, it was a text from Ricky, my best friend.
You need a ride? he texted.
I ignored it, he and I have known each other since we were babies, but since he has started going to college, we haven’t talked much since. I wondered why he would just message me out of the blue like this?
Someone knocked on my door as I tossed my phone on my bed and grabbed my backpack. “I’m coming!” I said, as I looked and saw my brother come in.
“Ricky’s giving us a ride. Why didn’t you message him back?” Logan asked as I zipped up my bag and threw it over my shoulders.
“I wanted to walk.” I lied. I really didn’t want to talk to Ricky. I looked over and saw my phone go off. I looked at my caller ID. It was my dad. I quickly grabbed the phone and answered.
“D-Daddy??” I asked, I had a tear escape from my eyes.
“Yes, how’s my baby girl?” He asked. My heart was overjoyed. Logan’s eyes got wide as I put the call on speaker.
“We miss you, daddy. Logan’s here too.” I spoke, wiping a tear or two away from my face.
“Hey dad.” Logan said.
“I miss you both so much. I wanted to call and wish you a great first day. I’m sorry if I can’t make it.” He explained. Logan looked at me, I bet he could see the smile on my face, just hearing my dad’s voice. “I’ll be home as soon as I can. Something happened with my trip and it might be awhile longer.”
“How long? You okay, daddy?” I panicky asked.
“I’m not sure, sweetie. I’ve been feeling under the weather and I can’t travel until I’m better. I’ve got to go, but I love you too so much.” My dad hung up the phone as I finished wiping my tears. Logan pulled me in to hug me.
A car horn honked from outside. Logan pulled away and left. “I’ll be right out, just have to grab my stuff.” Logan said. I walked out to the front of my house, where Ricky’s car was parked. I got in the back seat as Ricky turned his head and gave me a smile.
He looked different, he cut his long blond hair and doesn’t look like he has shaved his face in awhile. “How are you, Athena?” He asked, but I looked towards my house, hoping that my brother would come out sooner.
“Fine.” I said, just to shut him up. Finally my brother got out of the house. Logan opened the passage’s door and got in.
“Hey Ricky, thanks again for giving us a ride.” Logan said as I rolled my eyes. “My mom said that if you need gas money, we can give you some.”
“Naw, don’t worry about it.” Ricky said, driving away from our house. “Actually, wanted to know if you guys wanted to come over Saturday to a party?”
“Hell, yeah we would!” Logan excitedly said.
“I’ll pass.” I snapped, crossing my arms as I noticed Ricky had glance at me through the mirror.
“Come on, you don’t have to drink, it will be fun.” Logan tried to convince me.
“No, I-I have a date.” I lied. Why the hell did I just say that.
“You don’t date.” Ricky said as he turned into our high school. “You are coming, I’ll bring you home whenever you want to go.” He stopped the car.
“Thanks, but no thanks.” I got out of the car and quickly slammed the car door, walking as fast as I can into the school.
“Athena, wait up!” I heard Logan shout as I saw him pacing himself for running after me. “What was that all about?”
“I don’t want to talk about it.” I snapped and Logan dropped the subject. Logan and I walked to our homeroom, we had the same homeroom since coming to high school. We both sat in the back of the class as Ms. Eddy counted to see who was here.
I decided to putt out a mini project I was working on. I started to crochet a bookmark as Logan played on his phone. Ms. Eddy passed out our schedules and smiled when she saw me. “Working on a new project already, Athena?” She was the one to get me into crocheting, since it was a way to stay stress free.
“Yeah, I’ve been trying some different one’s in the book you gave me.” I returned the smile and pulled out the finished product of what I was working on.
“Beautiful, I love it.” She dropped the schedule on my desk. “Here you go, I’ll be seeing you at 8th period.” The bell rang and everyone in homeroom, grabbed their stuff and left. My brother took my schedule and peaked at it.
“We have English, Algebra 2, and History together.” He handed my schedule back. “Come on, sis.”
________________________________________________________________
Logan’s P.O.V.
“Why can’t I go?” I argued with my mother. “Just because Athena doesn’t want to go, I can’t go? This is bullshit!”
“Logan! Watch your language!” my mother sighed. “I feel safer if you both went together. I know you think you can take care of yourself, but I don’t trust Ricky enough to keep an eye on you.”
I through my arms in my hair. It was totally crap that she didn’t want to let me go by myself. “Fine, what if I get Athena to go?” I asked.
“Then you can go, just make sure you are back before 11.” She then went back to looking at the computer. Her office phone rang. “Let me know what the plan is.” She answered the phone and I walked out of her office and headed down to Athena’s room.
I walked right in, Athena was on sitting on her bed crocheting, like she normally does. “Thanks for knocking.”
“I’m sorry, but can you please come to the party with me, tonight? Mom won’t let me go by myself.” I spoke, checking my phone as Ricky had just texted me that he was on his way. “Pretty please, Athena?”
“I already said no.” She snapped as she kept crocheting.
“I’ll tell mom about your habit.”
She looked at me in confusion. “What?”
“You heard me, I’ll tell mom you’ve been smoking pot.” Her eyes widen, she stopped what she was doing.
“How do you know about-” I stopped her from finishing her sentence. “I’m not the only one who uses the treehouse for that.” I replied with a grin on my face.
I remember the first time I caught her, she didn’t see me, but I’ve been low on pot and come to find out that she’s been up there smoking it. I never thought that my sister would do anything like that.
She rolled her eyes and placed her crochet stuff on her night stand. “Fine, but I’m not staying long.” I grabbed her sweater that was hanging and threw it to her.
“You might want to change, its’ getting chilly out.” I said before leaving her room. I popped my head back in. “Forgot to tell you that Ricky is bringing us. He’ll be here in 2 minutes.” Athena crossed her arms and gave me a dirty look.
I slowly walked into my mom’s office, she looked tired, but when she saw me she gave me a small smile. “So, is she going?” My mom asked.
“Yeah, she changed her mind. It’s still okay if we go, right?” I asked.
“As long as you are home before 11. Make sure that you both have your phones and you let me know when you arrive and when you are on your way.” She said, sitting back down in her chair before answering another call that was coming in.
I heard Ricky honk, and Athena was already waiting for me outside. She had a dress on, which was shocking because she normally doesn’t wear dresses or makeup, for that matter. I ignored and we started to walk over to Ricky’s car and he drove us off to the party.
___________________________________________________________________
Ricky’s P.O.V.
My party was going pretty hard. I had a lot of girls come up to me, but the one I was interested in, was ignoring me. She looked hot, especially for a girl who never liked to dress up. I poured two shots and walked over with them to her.
She crossed her arms and looked away, when I sat down next to her. “Seriously, Athena, please just talk to me.”
“Why should I talk to you?” She snapped at me. I handed her a shot, but she still didn’t look at me.
“Tell me what I did wrong! Please, I’m begging you. I want to fix this.” She rolled her eyes and got up and walked away. I seriously couldn’t remember what I did. I got up and followed her outside.
“Athena, stop running from me!” I yelled, grabbing her wrist as she pulled away and looked into my eyes.
“I told you that I loved you and you said nothing! Just ignored me and said you were busy with college!” She screamed. She told me before I left for college and I didn’t know what to say to her. I loved her too, but her mother warned me to stay away. I didn’t have the heart to tell her.
“I’m sorry that I didn’t explain why I didn’t say anything. It’s more complicated than that.” I said pausing. “I’m never going to be good enough for you. I figured ignoring your feelings would make it easier for you to forget.”
Athena started to cry a little more. “Ricky, it’s not that simple.” She spoke softy, I tried to hug her, but she put her hand out in front of me. “Can we please find Logan so we can leave?”
I nodded as I went back inside to get Logan.
I felt so stupid. Why couldn’t I just tell her? I wanted to be the only one for her, but I don’t want to ruin our friendship, which was already on the rocks. Maybe I just needed to find someone for me, so that I can help her move on.
_________________________________________________________
Logan’s P.O.V
Ricky came to get me and it was all silent in the car ride home. I figured I would leave it alone, unless something bad happened.
I thank Ricky for the ride home and Athena never turned back to look at Ricky. I didn’t understand why she was acting like this. Maybe it’s because dad has been gone for so long? I followed her into her room. “Is everything okay?” I asked as she turned and nodded. I didn’t believe it for a second.
“Seriously, what is wrong?” I snapped, crossing my arms. Athena sat down on her bed. Taking off her shoes and jacket.
“Don’t worry about it, its nothing.” She snapped. I rolled my eyes, this is what she would normally do.
“Put your shoes back on, let’s go to the treehouse.” I said as she looked surprised. She got her shoes back on and followed me to the backyard, where stood the tree that held the tree house we all build together.
For years, Athena and I would come up here to talk or to read, but it has been transformed into a mini smoke place for me and sometimes Athena. Our mom has no idea that’s what we do up here, but my dad knows and says as long as I don’t get caught, he’s okay with it.
I climbed up the treehouse first and then helped Athena get inside. She sat on the right side of the treehouse, that’s where she would normally sit. I grabbed a little bit of pot and started to grind it up for a joint.
“Seriously, what’s wrong? And don’t lie to me. I’ll find out one way or another.” I said, looking up at her for a second. A faint smile appeared on her face.
“You sounded like dad.” She said as I returned the smile. “I miss him, Logan.” I nodded in agreement. Don’t get me wrong, we love our parents, but we love it when all of us are here together. Mom has been busy stressed out on trying to pay the bills, that she hasn’t had the time to spend it with us.
It doesn’t bother me, but Athena doesn’t really have friends expect Ricky and I. Although, Ricky and Athena seemed to not be talking as much as they used to. I decided I was going to break the awkward silence. “Is there something going on between you and Ricky?” I asked, finishing up the small joint I rolled.
Athena sighed as I put the joint in my mouth and lit it. “I-I-I told him how I felt and he didn’t say anything about it.” She softly said, as I passed the joint to her. I knew she had feeling for him, but I figured she would be too shy to say anything to him. I did know that when our mom found out, she told Ricky to stay away, Athena doesn’t know, but my mom doesn’t want history to repeat itself.
“Look, I’m just gonna come out and tell you this because I love you and I am your twin.” I took a deep breathe. “Mom told him to stay away from you, before he left college. She didn’t want your heart to be broken.”
Angry flushed her face. He handed the joint back to me, she wanted to pace back and forth, but there was no room to do so. “I can’t believe she did that! I’m tired of her treating me like a little flower!” I started to laugh, when she said flower, but it’s the truth. “It’s not funny!”
“Okay, I’m sorry, but I didn’t think you were going to say flower.” Athena finally started to relax. “Listen, here’s what I think about all this. Yes, your in love with him, but you have never been in love with anyone else. I think you need to put your feelings on the back burner, which I know will be hard to do, but I think that you’ll find someone else and forget about him.”

Not Again – Intro & Chapter 1 (Short Story)

Not Again Book Cover

Hey dearies! Here is my next book! I just wanted to give you guys a heads up that this is a short story that I wrote back in high school for one of my assignments. I’m surprised that my English teacher didn’t think I was nuts, but since it has sort of a ‘murder’ theme, I figured this is the perfect time to show it! 

It is a short story and I haven’t had any time to edit at it, so I am sorry if they’re are errors. This is just to hold you guys off until I can get Unclear 2, at least, half-way done. This is a short story, so the chapters will be very short. 

*Warning: Mature Content is advised! Read at your own risk!

~Intro~

It had been a year, since I lost my father. My mother was very upset when he died. He was her true love, her missing puzzle piece, and not to forget, her best friend. Ever since he died, my mother has changed. She started to work from home, not going out anywhere unless I begged her to go grocery shopping. She stopped talking to her friends, and just became a loner.
My older sister, May, and her husband, Nick, moved in because she knew that our mother needed to be safe and with her daughters by her side. Little did we know that she was going to be left from this world into another, until it did happen.

~Chapter 1: Before The Party~

~2 weeks before~
“Honestly, I really don’t want to go to Hannah’s party this weekend.” I told as Sami rolled her eyes. “I’m really not for parties anymore.”
“You need to stop hiding in the dark and have some fun in life! Just because today is the anniversary of his death, doesn’t mean you need to avoid big opportunities in life.” She said as she sat down at my desk, then taking out her phone and playing Angry Birds.
Sami love Angry Birds, she told me that’s how she calms down, when she sees people who she just wants to knock out. Plus she is very good, considering that she is failing Geometry for the 2nd year in a row.
“I know, but it all happened so fast…The cancer that we didn’t know about…” I spoke softly, hold the picture of me and my dad, when I was little. I can still remember that day by heart.
“Let’s not talk about this anymore.” Sami said as I could see she looked very annoyed with me. Goddamn, if I could smack her, I would. “How about we pick out an outfit that Chris will die for!”
Chris was my best friend as well. I’ve known him longer than Sami, but I shared my little secret that really liked him, more than friends. Since I told Sami that, she has been making fun of me for being scared to tell him that I love him. Nevermind that, I can’t even ask him out on a date, let alone tell him that I have major feeling for the guy.
“No, I really don’t want to go, Sami. And besides, he’ll never like me.” I said as I hid my face in my pillow. As if he would understand how I feel.
“You are not going to sit here and be a sour puss. You are coming to that party, whether you like it or not! I will drag you out by your hair if I have to!” Sami said as she was searching through my closet and then stop to pull out a orange summer dress. “You are going to wear this and you are going to look fabulous!”

Unclear – 10 Years Later (Chapter 1)

Image result for wattpad katieasehl unclear

So, here is the first chapter from my book! Last Monday I explained a little bit of what this is. If you haven’t read the intro, click on this link ——> https://katiesblog96971617.wordpress.com/2018/05/14/my-writing-unclear-intro/

Every Monday, I post another chapter of my book, that is on Wattpad, as well. If you want to read more and can’t wait, go to Wattpad and look for the book ‘Unclear’ by katieasehl. Enjoy!

~10 Years Later~

8:56 a.m.
I woke up and just laid in my bed. Ugh, why can’t I just sleep in? I didn’t have to work at the bookstore today, then why did I wake up so early? Then the smell of waffles entered my nose. Well, someone is up. I thought to myself.
James Grey was my best friend and my roommate. He has helped me through a lot, especially when I told him about my past. He had a kinda similar past, but his dad or older sister didn’t die. He lost his mom after she gave birth to him and ever since then, it’s been just him and his dad.
I finally got up and out of my warm cozy bed and went to shower and dress. After that I walked down the stairs to find James cooking waffles. He is such a great cook, I swear he should’ve became a professional chef. Then again, he is a wonderful musician.
I sat down at the island and watched him cook. I noticed that he had bags under his eyes, again. Someone stayed up late, again.
“Well, someone stayed up late, again. I’m surprised you didn’t sleep in.” I said as he started to mix another batch of waffles.
“Yeah, I was talking to someone last night.”
“Was it a girl?” I said with a smirk.
“Yes, if you need to know.” he said, placing the waffles on to a pan and into the oven.
“So, what’s this lucky girls name?”
He was quiet for a little bit, like he didn’t want to tell me, but I knew he would, eventually. Then he turned to face me and smiled. “Her name is Marie and she is perfect.”
“Is this the same girl that you have been talking to for over a month, now?”
“Yeah, I’m actually going to meet her tonight.” he then opened the oven and pulled out the waffles, just in time and then placed them on a plate.
“Wait, you haven’t met her yet?” I said as we both walked into the dining room with a plate of waffles and sat down.
“Not in person. I met her online.”
“So, your telling me that you are going to meet this “Marie” girl, that you met online? What if Marie is a he? Or a stalker? Or a murder?” I knew I was exaggerating, but I didn’t trust meeting people online. There are way too many creeps on there.
“JJ, calm down. Just because you had a bad experience with online dating, doesn’t mean it will happen to me. Plus I know what she looks like. We have been texting each other pictures of each other. Don’t you worry.”
“I worry because I care about you, James. I don’t need you getting screwed over by some lying bitch, pretending to be someone else.” I then started to eat and think about James situation. What would be a way where James can meet Marie, but not so private? “I’ve got it!”
I nearly scared the shit out of James. He looked up to me and gave me the look he always did when I had an idea.
“Let’s throw a party! It’s perfect because then you can meet her in a more public place and I can still make sure that you don’t get kidnapped. Plus, I have tonight off and I really want to party.” James looked at me like I was crazy. He never really liked to party unless he was really drunk or he was dragged along by me.
“Alright, but just this once. I think of it as a house welcoming party.” Of course he would. Sometimes I wonder why I’m friends with a party pooper.
“Yes, oh, and my mom is coming over today. She needs to tell me something.”
Any time my mom has to tell me something, it’s either good nor bad. Plus she hasn’t came over since James and I moved into our new house. I know something is up. I really don’t want to know what it is.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
After breakfast, James and I cleaned up our plates and then I waited outside on my porch for my mother. She said she would be here around 10 a.m., then again, she can be late sometimes.
James went back upstairs to play his drum set. Sometimes, that can become very annoying, then again, he’s not that bad, but I would rather him play his guitar.
Then I saw my mother walking over to my house. Since we live right next door from each other. My mom looked really big. She must of put on some pounds since I last saw her. As soon as she got closer, I could see that she wasn’t big, but looked like she was pregnant?!? When did this happen? Why didn’t she tell me about this? I couldn’t believe it.
“Hey sweetie! I’ve missed you.” my mother came up and hugged me tight. I hugged her back, but then pushed her away. She paused and then she caught my eye’s staring at her stomach. “Well, about this.” She rubbed her stomach.
“A-are you p-p-pregnant??” I thought I was dreaming. I even pinched myself, but this was all real. Way too real.
“Yes! Isn’t this exciting! You’re going to be a big sister!” She smiled and then placed her hands together. As I saw her fingers, the engagement and wedding ring that dad got her were replaced with a new wedding ring.
“What did you do to your engagement and wedding rings that dad gave you?” I wasn’t just upset, but finding out all of this now, was pissing me off.
“Well, hun. I knew you had been busy for the past few months, working, studying, and going to college. That I didn’t want to bring all of this up right away.” I crossed my arms and looked away from my mother. I couldn’t even stand to look at her right now. “Frank and I thought that we should tell you before the babies were born.”
Did I heard that right? Did she just say babies?! First I find out that she’s pregnant and that she’s remarried? Why didn’t she tell me this? I’m her daughter, why didn’t she tell me this when it all happened?
“Who the hell is Frank? And babies?! And you got remarried without your only daughter to witness it? What the hell kind of mother are you?” My mom then sat down next to me and tried to comfort me. I got up so fast that she had to blink a few times to notice I was standing, facing her. “What about dad? Did you ever think about him when you did all this?”
“Jade, your father has been gone for 10 years. I’ve learned to move on and I’m sure he wants me to be happy. I loved your father so much. After he passed away, all I had left was you. It’s time that we all moved on, hunny.” she spoke like she did when I first had a crush and he denied to go out with me.
“Then why didn’t you even tell me you got married?”
“Well, Frank and I thought it would be an amazing idea if we ran off and got married.”
“Without telling me. You didn’t even tell me you were seeing anyone. When did this happen?” I really wish dad was here, he would know what to do.
“We met about a year ago. We wanted to keep it a secret because I didn’t know how you would react to it. We got married after you moved out. Then about 5 months ago, I found out that I was pregnant.”
“You got pregnant after I moved out, 5 months ago?!? And you never even bothered to tell me? What is wrong with you! I’m the only thing you have left of dad and what you are doing, right now, is pushing me away. Go live your new happy life, mom. I can’t even look at you.” I was just about done with this conversation. I need a drink.
“But Jade-” I cutted her off. “Just leave. I don’t want to see you.” I then walked inside and poured myself a glass of wine. I needed it. This was all way too much.
I sat down on the couch and just sat there, thinking about everything that happened. Why would she do this to me? I thought she cared about me, but clearly, she doesn’t.
James then came downstairs and saw me crying, holding the bottle of wine in my hand. He sat down next to me and held me close. After a few minutes of silence, James spoke.
“I heard you yelling. You wanna talk about it, JJ?” I shock my head no and he nodded. James knew I would talk about it later. That’s why I’m always so grateful to have him in my life. He doesn’t just understand me, but he is always there for me, whenever I need it.
Right now, I was more focused on having a good time, tonight and I’m gonna drink until I forget about today.
