~Chapter 2~

Athena’s P.O.V
“Why are we cleaning out the garage, Mom?” Logan asked as we were all seated at the kitchen table. Mom was putting eggs and bacon onto our plates.
“Because, we need to get rid of some stuff in there. I don’t know when your father is coming back, but money has been really tight and I don’t want to go into you guys college funds to help keep us afloat.” Mom said as she poured herself some more coffee.
“I can get a job. We don’t have to sell our stuff.” Logan said as our mother shock her head ‘no’.
“Neither of you should get a job to help me out. Focus on school and I’ll take care of the bills.” Mom said as I finished breakfast. “Athena, I have some bad news. I won’t be able to take you to the craft fair next week. I’m really sorry, but work has been crazy and I have to work on your birthdays too.”
“That’s okay, Mom.” I said, my expression sadden. It was my favorite event that my mom and I would go to, but I guess we will have to try again next year. I got up from the table and pushed my chair in. “I’ll go start on cleaning the garage.”
Mom nodded, but her office phone started to rang as she quickly ran into the next room. I turned and walked out into the garage.
The garage was a mess, with boxes on top of boxes. Over to the left stood Logan and I’s very first bikes. Dad didn’t want us to get rid of them and that we should keep them for when we have kids.
I walked over to the back of the garage and figured I would start with the boxes that weren’t labeled, but there was something that caught my eye, something I had never seen before. A small wooden chest.
I don’t remember seeing something like this, but I was curious to know what laid inside. I moved a few boxes that sat in front of it. As I got closer to the wooden chest, all I could see was that it was very dusty. Mom and Dad must of forgot about it because it looks like it hasn’t been touched in a long time.
I was about to open it, when I heard a voice. “Athena, you in here?” Crap. It was Ricky. I stayed hidden a little longer, hoping he would just give up and leave me alone. After a few minutes, I heard him walk away. I sighed in relief.
I looked back down at the chest and opened it slowly. I was amazed to see how many books there was in here. As I picked up one and looked over the cover, I saw that there was no title or author on it. I opened the book and saw the inside.
My eyes got bigger when I saw that it wasn’t just any type of book, but a diary. Not just anyone’s diary, but my moms. I quickly put the book back and then closed the wooden chest. I didn’t want anyone to walk in on me reading my mothers thoughts.
I was too curious. I cleaned off the chest and quickly snuck it into my room. I place it on my floor. I then took the chest and placed it in my closet, quickly shutting the door before I heard. “There you are. I have been looking everywhere for you.”
I turned around and saw Ricky, standing in my doorway. “What are you doing here?” I snapped, he gazed at me as faced him. “I have to go clean the garage, so either tell me what you want or leave.”
He sighed as I crossed my arms. “Can we just talk, so I can explain myself?” He asked as I rolled my eyes.
“Fine, but we can talk out in the garage.” I said, pushing him out of the way and walking back outside and towards the garage. I really wasn’t in the mood to talk to him and have him explain that my mother was stopping him from expressing his feelings.
Once we reached the garage I started to go through a box, as I waited for Ricky to say something. It was quiet for a little bit until he finally spoke.
“I know that your brother told you why I couldn’t tell you how I felt because of your mother, but I’m going to tell you now.” He paused and I heard him sigh. “I love you, but I think it’s best that we just stay-” Before he could finish, I had to know. I don’t know what got into me, but I walked over to him and kissed him.
He was my first ever kiss, but it was worth it. It was breath taking. I felt my arms wrapping around his neck and his wrapped around my waist. I didn’t want it to stop, but he finally pulled away. Our foreheads were still pressed together. I finally opened my eyes, both of us still trying to catch our breath.
“Wow.” I said as I saw a small smile appeared on his face.
“Why did you do that?” He asked as I pulled away and thought about it. I then realize that I just kissed Ricky.
“I-I don’t know.” I said, sitting on the cold cement floor. “I just thought that if I knew what it was like to kiss you, I would be able to get over you easily, but I don’t think I can now.” I hugged my knees and covered my head.
I felt Ricky place his hand on my back. Rubbing it back and forth as he sat down beside me. “I don’t think I’ll be able to either.” I looked up at him as he smiled at me. He leaned in and kissed me again. We were so lost in kissing each other that we got interrupted.
“Athena!” We stopped kissing and turned to see my mother standing in front of us. “Athena Rose! Get your ass inside, now!” She demanded.
Never have I ever seen my mother get so mad before. I was scared. I quickly got up and ran inside. I ran passed Logan, I started to cry, but I didn’t know why.
“Athena, what’s wrong?” I heard Logan asked as I shut my bedroom door. I lean back against the door and fell to the ground. I didn’t understand why my mother was acting like this.
____________________________________________________________________
Ricky’s P.O.V.
I stood up after Athena ran inside. I was face to face with her mother. I remember the last conversation I had with her, it was the night of graduation. The night I planned on telling Athena how I felt, but her mother told me it would be best if I stayed away and did my own thing.
“Look, I’m-” I figured I would apologize, but Jade had interrupt me before I could.
“Don’t sorry me! I told you to stay away from her! Now, she is going to think that you too are going to be together forever!” She yelled, a thought popped into my mind. I knew about her past because my mom and her were close friends, but they stopped talking for some reason.
I wanted to say it, but I kept my mouth shut. I didn’t want to bring up James…
“I’m sorry! I’m sorry that I fell in love with your daughter.” I said as I tired to stopped myself, but didn’t. “To be honest, but I think I remember being told that you fell in love with your best friend and your mother didn’t seem to have a problem with it.”
She looked shocked when the words came out of my mouth. I didn’t know what came over me, but deep down, it needed to be said.
“Leave Ricky! I never want you around Athena or this house again!” She screamed as I walked away. Logan caught me, before I got into my car.
“Ricky, wait!” He said as I opened my door. “What the hell is going on?”
I put my head down and looked back up at him. “Take care of your sister.” I got into my car, started my engine and drove off. The one thing that popped in my mind was Athena. How beautiful she was and how her smile brighten my day. Just seeing her, made my world stop.
I felt a tear slip, but I quickly wiped it away. I pulled over and cut my engine. I placed my head on my hand, that was still on the steering wheel. I just hope that Athena was alright.
I pulled out my phone and tried to call her, but it just kept ringing until it reached to her voicemail.
“Hey its Athena. Leave a message!”
“Athena, I love you. Don’t forget that.” I then hung up, turned my engine back on and drove home.
____________________________________________________
Logan’s P.O.V.
I walked back in my house, after Ricky left. My mother was in front of Athena’s door. “Athena, get out here!” She shouted.
Our mother has never been a yeller, unless I did something back, but for Athena, she didn’t know how to handle it. I walked over to my mother she turned and looked at me quick, before going back and knocking on her door.
“What are you doing, Mom?” I asked. She turned and glared at me.
“You.” She pointed to me. “You had to keep him around when I told you no! You said that you would keep Ricky away!” She slapped my face.
“What the hell!” I yelled. “What has gotten into you, Mom. What is so wrong about Ricky?”
“He is going to make her think that they will live happily ever after and then break her heart!” She said, I then noticed that she was walking funny.
She was drunk. We have never seen our mother drunk, so this was a first. I noticed that our parents wine collection was disappearing, but I didn’t think my mother had drank almost half of it.
“You’re drunk, aren’t you?” I confronted her. She then turned and walked away into her room.
Once she closed her door. I quietly went to Athena’s door. “Athena, its just me. Open up.” I said as the door slowly opened. As I looked into my sister’s face, her eyes were red from crying. I walked into her room and closed the door.
Athena hugged me as tight as she could. I didn’t mind, but it made me angry that Athena was so scared. “I want daddy.” I heard her say. I missed him, too.
I waited until she finally let go of me to speak, but there was nothing that I felt that would help her. She sat on her bed and I sat down next to her. I noticed something that was peaking out of her closet. I got up and opened it.
“What’s that?” I asked as I looked at the weird little wooden chest. “I’ve never seen this before, where did get this?” I looked back at Athena, as she wiped her tears.
“It was in the garage. It’s a bunch of journals.” She spoke. I looked back and grabbed the chest from the closet and placed it on the floor.
“Who’s journals?” I asked as I opened the wooden chest and grabbed one of the many books that hid inside.
“Moms.” I looked up back at Athena. “I know I shouldn’t of taken them, but I was curious and I feel that she is hiding something from us.”
Athena got down from her bed and sat on the floor with me. “These go back to when she was a teenager.” Athena explained. I opened one of them and she was right. Mom’s name was inside for sure.
“How do you know that?” I asked, but when I looked on the outside of the book, on the edge of the book, was a year. No date or month, just the year. “Have you read any of these?”
Athena shook her head no. “I haven’t yet.” She then looked through and grabbed the earliest year. That must of been when mom started to write in journals. “We should read this together?” Athena asked.
I nodded as we sat together and turned the first page of her journal:

2004 – June
Today, I finally graduated from high school. It took long enough, but I’m glad it’s over. James and I are going to move in to our own place. We figured it would be cheaper than living in a dorm with some strangers.
I wish he knew how I felt about him. I love him, more than he knows. I’m just glad he has stayed by my side after all the stuff that happened the night my sister died.
But I know he only sees me as a friend, nothing more. Or does he?
I figured I would write in a journal as a fresh start. After what happened when I was 12… I know it has been years, but I still have nightmares of that night. The night I lost my sister and my virginity…
I’m glad Lucas is in hell for what he did…

2004 – July
We are moved in, finally! I get to enjoy the short time of what’s left of summer before I have to go back to school.
I got my first job! I’ll be working at the bookstore. My mom knows the owner and thankfully he was hiring. I think that would be a wonderful place to start a job. It’s only going to be part time, so that I can go to college. Not sure what I want to do, but I need to figure out quick…
The night mares just don’t seem to go away… About that night… I feel terrible to abort that baby, but I had too. I wasn’t going to raise a child that came from one night that I was drugged and raped…
James says that I have to move on, but I can’t. So, tonight, we are going to have our first ever party at our house. I figured a night of drinking and dancing with friends can help me forget.
Savannah can’t come over, but that’s okay. She’s got little Ricky to take care of. I feel bad for her…
Connor still doesn’t want anything to do with Ricky that he moved to LA AFTER he was born. I still can’t believe that his parents tried to pay Savannah to have an abortion…
I’ll write later, need to go to work!
______________________________________________________________
Athena’s P.O.V.
We both looked up from our mother’s journal. I wanted to cry. I never knew that about her or Ricky. Logan pulled out his phone and checked the time, it was almost 2pm. An hour since my mother was caught Ricky and I kissing.
“That’s sad though.” I broke the silence. Logan looked at me.
“About mom or Ricky’s father wanting his mother to get rid of him?”
“About Ricky.” I paused. “I’ve always wondered why he never talked about his dad, now I know why.”
“I know.” Logan replied. “Who’s James?” I wondered about it too. The way mom was talking about him, made me believe that she really did love him, but she never talked about him. What happened to him? Did they fall in love?
“I don’t know, but I want to read the 2008 one.” I said, grabbing it and flipping a few pages until I saw our dad’s name. “Look! Here’s dad’s name!”
Logan looked closely, but once he read a little in, he turned the page. “I don’t think we need to know about that.”
“What was it?” I asked.
“Something that should stay between mom and dad.” Logan replied as I peaked over and read a little before going to the next page. “Yep, let’s leave that there.” I never wanted to picture my mother talking about her first time with dad, but now, it was frozen in my brain.
“Do you want to keep reading?” Logan asked. I nodded as we looked back down on the next page in our mom’s journal:

2008 – January
Tanner took me out, last night, but I ended up in James’ bed. We made love and I don’t know what to think about it.
Tanner has been so sweet to me and has made it clear he wants to be more than friends, but I just don’t know. James took advantage of me when I was drunk and let it happened. It brings me a flashback back to that horrible night when I was 12.
I just don’t know…
2008 – February
Well, I don’t know how to say this, but I’m pregnant…
I don’t know who the father is. I have a feeling it is Tanner’s but still.
I feel like I should be on one of those shows that call out women who sleeps with more than one man and finds out that they are or aren’t the father.
I didn’t mean for it to happen. I’m scared and don’t know what to do… What happens when I tell them? Both James and Tanner.
God, I feel like such a whore. No more heavy drinking… Not just for my health, but for my future baby.
2008 – March
I told them…
Actually, Tanner’s sister saw me buying the tests with Savannah. I moved out, too.
James called me a whore for sleeping with both of them, but he took advantage of me when I was extremely drunk! How is that my fault? I don’t know why I got so drunk, so it’s just as much my fault as it is his.
Tanner has been really sweet towards me. He’s already starting to save up money for the little one. It makes me feel that he is going to be a wonderful father. I have a deep feeling that he is the father of our child.
At least I can try and be a good mom, unlike mine. She decided to not tell me she was getting married and that she was pregnant! Whatever, I’m done being lied too.
__________________________________________________________________________________
Athena’s P.O.V.
“I can’t read any more, Logan.” I said, putting the book back in the chest. “W-We could’ve been someone else’s kids?” Logan the book from me and went through a few pages and then he then read out loud.
“Don’t worry. James’ isn’t our father, just listen.” Logan cleared his throat. “I found out I was having twins and they are both Tanners. James can’t have kids because of all the abuse he suffered as a child. I felt horrible that James wouldn’t have any kids, but I’m more shocked that I’m having twins.”
“Thank god.” I sighed in relief. “I have had enough reading. Too much we have found out at once.” I said as Logan kept looking back into the book. He was skipping pages, then looked up at me.
“Dad’s never mention in having a sister to you, has he?” I shock my head. Logan took a deep breath in. “She’s alive, sort of.”
“What? What do you mean sort of?” I asked as I took the book from him and saw what he saw.
‘I don’t believe it. The only family Tanner had was now gone… More like dead, as in vampire.’
“Vampire??”

~Chapter 2: Best Night Of My Life~

Tonight was Hannah’s party and I was already nervous because I’m going to tell Chris how I feel tonight. Sami was already on board with the idea, but then again, when she goes to any party, she always wants to dance and have a good time.
I was waiting outside for Sami to come and pick me up when she pulled up into the driveway. I got in and she drove us to the party while listening to Rihanna, on the way there. My stomach was already turning. Ugh, why was I so nervous? I felt like I was going to throw up, but it was too late to back out now, we had just got to Hannah’s house.
“Do I have to go?” I asked as we stepped out of the car. “I’m feeling sick, please take me home.” Clearly, Sami was ignoring me because she was making sure that her hair make-up was okay. Then she looked up at me.
“You’re fine and you aren’t leaving until I want to go. And that will give you enough time to talk to Chris.” She said. I just wanted to leave. I can talk to Chris later. As soon as Sami walked inside and into the party, I started to turn around and walk home when I bumped into something.
“Oh, I’m sorry Alexis. I didn’t see you there.” As I heard a familiar voice, it was Chris. I looked up to see his hand reaching down to help me up. The butterflies were fluttering like crazy inside my stomach.
“Chris, I was actually just leaving.” I spoke as he helped me stand on my feet. We both stared at each other’s eyes. Like there was a real connection.
“It’s a shame that you aren’t staying, but then again, the only reason I did come, is because of you.” Chris smiled as I could feel my cheeks blushing. Did he just say what I think he just said?
“R-really?” As I said and looked at him in surprise.
“Yes, really.” He smiled once more. “Do you want to go get some Chinese food? My treat.” Chris knew that I loved to eat Chinese food all the time, if I could. I smiled and nodded my head. Hoping that tonight would be the best night of my life.

If you can’t wait until the next chapter, check it out on Wattpad! Just search my username, katieasehl, and not only will you find this book, but other’s that are finished or I’m currently working on.

Happy Monday dearies! Here is the next chapter! Warning, the next couple chapters might have some mature content. Again, I wrote this back in high school and it’s not completely proof read, so try not to judge as much. I have been thinking about rewriting this, but haven’t have enough motivation to do so. Enjoy!

~The Mistake~

Then, I bumped into this person.
“Hey, I’m s-shaking my ass here, d-dude!” I know when I’m drunk when I start talking like that, but I didn’t care. I was having the time of my life right now.
“I’m sorry. I must of not seen you.” A deep voice spoke, it sounded like a guy, but he was nice enough to help me up.
“Thanks, but y-you own me a-another drink.”
“I think you have had enough.” He said taking my empty glass away and placing it on the bar. He then came back with a water bottle in his hand. “Here, this will help.”
“If this a-ain’t alcohol, I d-don’t want it.”
“Just drink it.” I then did what I was told and drank some of the water.
“I-I think I need to g-go to bed, n-now.” I said as I turned around and walked up to my room. The guy, who helped me, came up with me. Of course, I didn’t care. I was way too drunk to care. All I know, that I wanted to throw up and then, maybe, make-out with someone. Anyone. I didn’t care who.
I then felt the vomit coming up my throat and I ran into my bathroom. He followed and held my hair up for me.
“I-I’m s-sorry.” I felt that I needed to apologize for puking. Nice going, Jade. I thought to myself.
“Don’t be sorry. It happens when you drink a little more than expected. I’m Tanner.” He said as I got up and brushed my teeth. I liked him. He was totally hot, plus he seemed like he used to play on the football team. “And you are?”
“Jade.”
“That’s a-” Before he could finish his sentence, I stopped him. I went up to him and started to make-out with him. After I pulled away, he looked surprised. I then pointed my finger at him and told him to follow me.
Once we were in my room. It was on. Hardcore make-out section and clothes were starting to come off. Of course, I wasn’t thinking, but all I wanted was someone to fuck me. And this guy, was perfect for the invite. The only thing that wasn’t on my mind, for once, was James.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I woke up the next morning with a killer headache. My head was killing me. I didn’t remember a thing last night. I’m glad that I didn’t, but I was paying for it now. I felt arms around my waist, as I turned to find a guy in my bed. Shit. I slowly got up and went to the bathroom, hoping that I didn’t wake up my unexpected guest that was in my bed.
I got dressed and then walked back in my room to find, the guy, gathering the rest of his clothes.
“Well, good morning.” He spoke and I sat on the edge of my bed.
“Who are you?” I honestly couldn’t think of his name. Let alone, remember last night.
“You don’t remember?”
“Not really.”
“I’m Tanner. Marie’s older brother.” I froze when he said that last part. Did I just have sex with Marie’s older brother?? Oh god, I’m so dead when James finds out.
“Right.”
“I guess I should go now.” As he threw his shirt over his head.
“Yeah, I’ve got to get ready for work.” I lied as I made my bed.
“Well, it was nice to meet you, Jade.” Before he could leave, I stepped in front of the door.
“One more thing.” I said as he waited for me to finish my sentence. “Can you not tell anybody about this?”
“Of course. Bye Jade.” He said as he left my bedroom.
I just couldn’t believe that this Tanner guy, is Marie’s older brother. I am so stupid!
As soon as I calmed down, I went downstairs and made myself a cup of coffee. Once the coffee was ready, I headed into the living room, to find James watching the news.
“Well, well, how are you feeling?” James said as he knew I was hungover. He loved to pick on my for that.
“Haha, very funny.” I said in a sarcastic tone. “I feel like shit. How was your night?” I said, taking a sip off of my coffee.
“It was alright. Marie and I talked all night long.” He smiled. I hated it when he talked about other girls. Why couldn’t that be me? I’ve loved James since I met him. He was always there when I need a shoulder to cry on. We’ve been best friends for over 7 years. Losing him, would be losing my whole world. I just wish I had the courage to tell him how I feel.
“Cool.”
“Yeah, we are even official.” As soon as he said those words, my heart dropped. He only knew her for a month and they made it official? I nodded and took another sip of my coffee. I just couldn’t believe this!
There was a little of an awkward silence, until I had the guts to speak. “I met her older brother.” I said as he looked towards me and then spoke his name. “Tanner?” I nodded my head and then he turned and faced the T.V..
“I bet you did get to know him, alright.” He smirked and I punched his arm.
“So? It’s not like you haven’t had a one-night-stand before.”
“I have, but I think you like him.” My face got red. He knew it would. I get embarrassed when he assumes that I have a crush on anyone.
Before I could answer him, my cell phone started to go off. As I looked at the screen, I could see the caller I.D. to be my mother calling, again.
“Ugh, doesn’t she know to give me space.” I said as I hung up on her. I didn’t want to speak to her. She knew that, but knowing my mother, she thinks that I have all the space in the world, just because we live right next to each other.
“Who did you just hang up on?” James questioned as I placed my phone on the coffee table.
“My mother.”
“Why? Does this has something to do about yesterday?” Of course, I forgot to tell him about what went on between my mom and I. I took a deep breath and then began to speak.
“Long story short. She started seeing someone and didn’t bother to tell me, but as soon as I move out, she has this new guy move in.” I paused as James kept looking at me. His eyes are so beautiful. I quickly snapped out of it and then spoke again. “Not to mention that she and this ‘Frank’ guy, ran off and got married without me.”
“Wow. Anything else?” James looked surprised as I was when I found out. I then placed my coffee mug on the coffee table.
“She’s also 5 months pregnant with twins.” I then started to cry, a little. I just couldn’t believe my mother would forget to call me or message me to say that she was getting married. It hurt a lot. Especially, when she told me all of that yesterday.
James saw my tears and wiped them away. “I’m so sorry, Jade. I wish there was something I could do for you.”
I hugged him close and then looked up at him. “Never leave me. Like Mandy and Dad did.” As soon as I said that, waterfall of tears came down my cheek.
“I promise.” Those were the only words that he spoke, but I kept repeating it in my head. I promise. Hopefully, he will never break that promise.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Marie’s P.O.V.
Where the hell is he? It’s almost 10 in the morning! I don’t even know if he came home last night. Maybe he left? Just like Mom and Dad did. He can’t. He’s all I got. I sat there and started to cry, thinking about the day my parents left us.
It hurts just thinking about it.
All of a sudden, the door opened and Tanner walked in. I wiped my tears and ran to Tanner. Hugging him as tight as I could. He hugged me back. He smelled like alcohol. I pulled away and crossed my arms.
“Where were you!?! I thought you left me!” I yelled at him. Tears started to fall down on my face when I said that last sentence. Tanner hugged me again.
“Calm down. I would never leave you.” He spoke and I stopped crying. I looked up to my brother. “Where were you though?” I said as he and I walked into our living room. I sat down on the couch and Tanner took off his jacket and threw it right next to me.
“I drank a little too much and I ended up passing out on your boyfriends couch. I’m sorry. I should’ve texted you, but I will make it up to you.”
“Oh, that was nice of James. Speaking of which, I’m gonna go out to the sun room and call him.” I said as I got up and smiled.
“I’ll be upstairs if you need me.” He said as he walked up the stairs to his room. As soon as he was out of sight, I ran outside to the the sun room. My mother and father build it for me because they wanted be to a great painted, like my grandmother. The only issue was, my grandmother wasn’t just a painter, she was also a witch.
I learned everything from her, but my mom, dad, and Tanner should never find out about this. They would disown me for good. The only reason why my grandmother showed me about her secret, is because she wanted me to find the love of my life. Since I didn’t get my good looks from my mom, my grandmother cast a spell to make me beautiful, but there is only one issue.
Before my 21st birthday, I must do three things, otherwise, I will die and my family will be cursed forever. Since my grandmother cast that spell, it wasn’t just for good looks, I also must produce a baby with the one I cast a love spell over.
And so, that is why I met James. He is the one, that I’ve chosen to create a child with. Sadly, it might be harder than I expected. You see, I can’t cast a spell on someone who is already in love with someone else. I could, but it’s dark magic. My grandmother told me that if I keep using dark magic, my heart will slowly begin to turn black.
Sadly, that’s how she died. Too much dark magic she was casting.
There must be another why to have him fall out of love with Jade.

Next chapter will be out next week! As usual, if you don’t want to wait for the next chapter, look me up on Wattpad for the story ‘Unclear’ by katieasehl. Thanks for reading!
