High School Low

High School- something that in my eyes marked the beginning of what would soon be the end. But was I ready to face that reality? With the help of my mother I would be able to move on to the ninth grade. After some serious thinking, I’d realized just how fast I would need to get my act together. Before I knew it, I’d be graduating and out to experience the real world. Sadly, that in a way scared me. I was also excited to graduate and get my own independence. I never knew what type of path I should take. Leaving school was a sign that I was growing up, and it was time to figure out what I was going to do with my life. Did I want to marry Nick? Did I want to go to college? What? There was no telling what I should do. Hopefully everything would be okay. In all honesty, I had Nick. And for now, that was enough.

    Her hand gripped his as he forced her to look at him, she didn’t try to force him away or claw at him, but there was strength there. “Why aren’t you still fighting?! They have taken everything from you! Everything worth having and they won’t stop. And I’m not fighting you. I’d fight for you, but you have done nothing that makes you my enemy, yet. I’m kissing you. I am holding you, I’m…” She didn’t finish that last thought, just let it trail off. “How can you demand I believe you when YOU don’t even believe it?”

    She pushed away from him, backing up. “I just don’t know how to be anything other then I am.” Tessa met his eyes, a challenge in them. “I’m what they trained you for, made you for. Break me. If you can. Completely surrender and become the monster you fear, destroy me just like they destroyed you. Then tell the next one who comes along after me, the same exact things and repeat it till you are so numb you can’t come back and you’ll never have to feel again. It will happen, that it hasn’t yet… Is the reason why I want to kiss you and hold you and love you.”

    Tessa turned on her heel and walked away from him.
