I get home eventually, and I look at the sky and I can see the light yellows, blues and oranges in the sky and realize it's probably a little after five in the morning, damn, I'm going to get chewed out. I prepare for the onslaught as I get to the porch but Fenn is there waiting, AMETHYST! WHERE THE FUCK WERE YOU? He yells, "I ran into the forest after you why did you jump into the lake? I just stare blankly, puffy eyes, and numb. I push past him fumble under the small house replica for the spare key unlock the door, put the key back, close the front door lock it and head up the stairs. To my bedroom in the attic, I am the middle sibling of a Younger sister and an older brother. Eight, sixteen, and seventeen. I chose the attic as my room more privacy and own bathroom and a window to climb out to star gaze, or sneak out which I rarely do. I slip out of my damp clothing and into the bathroom to run a bath, I make the water as hot as it goes and slip in shivering and icy. I sit here until the water is icy crying my eyes out grossly. I finally drain the water and turn on the shower and halfheartly wash my hair, face and body. I turn of the water put on my fluffy robe and Drag my quilt and my pillow to my window pane and curl up by my window and fall asleep. 
My mom wakes me saying I'll be late to school, my sweet mother says I look sick and should stay home that she'd call the school and make me some soup, and have my brother run to the store to get me some sports drinks. I drift off again, waking up to a dark sky and lots of noise down stairs I finally get up, brush my teeth and head to my computer, to check my bank account I will need a new phone now. Savings account inquiry, two thousand five hundred and ninety dollars and fifty-eight cents is what I have saved from working for eight months, at the college library down the street from my tiny high school five to six hours a day four to five days a week. I have enough for a phone upgrade so I order my phone, and a water proof case. And check my messenger thirty-two unread Messages from Fenn Tinsley. Five unread messages from Samantha Riley I open Samantha.
-Hey Ames, want to go homecoming dress shopping with me Friday? I want to look great for Kit! :) <3 Let me Know. P.S what's up with your phone?
-Ames, will you pick me up for school today, I'm running late? 
-Ames??! Never mind I got a ride.
- Fenn just told me what happened, I want to come see you buy I know you want to be alone, message me when you can. I love you Amethyst. xo, Sam
At this point I'm crying again I walk back to my window and climb back on the pane. I can hear the house phone ring below, shortly after footsteps up my stairs and knocking follows, "Amethyst, its Samantha," says my little sister Sapphire, a minute passes and I'm sure Samantha told her just to walk in she hands me the house phone and kisses my cheek feel better "Amethyst, I love you." I wait until I hear the door closes and put the phone to my ear. 
-"Ames, Ames I'm so sorry, can I come over?" Silence. "I stay over on Friday nights can I come?" Silence. “I’m coming over I love you don't move.” And the phone clicks and the tone rings on.
Twenty-five minutes or so later.
My bedroom door swings open and Samantha is standing at my door in a green Kingsley High school gym shirt and hello kitty pajama bottoms holding an overnight bag. She closes my door turns sets up her phone on the music dock letting a slow melody play. 
She lifts my legs and sits with my legs in her lap. And we sit in silence for a while. Thank you Sam, I say. No problem Ames. She asks what happened I tell her the whole story, blubbering all the way through. She hugs me so hard her long red Waves cover my face and are in my mouth. Want to watch a movie she says? Sure we pop in The Bad Seed and sit back. Hey it’s too bad you weren't at school today; she says why I ask? There’s a new guy he's super-hot his name is Alexander if I didn't have Kit I might’ve gone after him.  I fake a laugh. Have you eaten she asks; no I say I'm not hungry. Lie. You're lying she says, I nod. "I'm ordering pizza okay Ames?" She says. "sure that's fine, wait no its not!" I say "Fenn works at Pizza Joe's." "You don't have to come down I'll go down and get everything no worries." she retorts. A few hours pass and the doorbell rings, Sam peeks out the window, collects her money and runs downstairs. I manage to hoist myself up to sneakily look out the window, it's not Fenn, thank god. Sam's back quickly with a large sausage pizza and a six pack of cream soda. She flips my television to Netflix, stopping the bad seed, as we eat our pizza and watch our show in silence. The next morning Sam leaves early for work and I get out of bed and dress for my full shift I pack up my homework that I'm sure I won't understand a single bit of because Mrs. Montgomery teaches something new every day in AP Calculus. I get to work clock in and sit at my desk. I deal with a handful of students a day mostly getting Parking Passes for the Dormitory. I study in silence, get home take my dinner to my room, sleep. This becomes my Routine for the next two and a half months, my parents and family worry as well as my friends, and Fenn who always looks hurt when he sees me but I never speak to him.
