A Story written by Kevin_88…

“Yo B***h you crazy?” he yelled as he raised his hand to hit her. 

That did it. I pushed him so hard he stumbled back a few feet before he fell. “If you ever touch her again I will F**K you up!” I yelled. 

He got up and charged me but I ducked under his haymaker and hit him in the stomach, when he leaned down I caught him with a hook right on the jaw, he went back down. The people around us cheered and made fun of him, and then he got up and walked away embarrassed. 

“This ain’t over punk! I’ll see ou again, you can be sure of that!” 

“Yea yea that’s what you said last time,” I screamed back. With that over we got back in the car and I drove us home, a little proud of myself.

The whole ride home was of us talking about that guy and how he had it coming, and how it felt so good to hit him. Maybe now he’ll take the hint and leave us alone. When we got back to the house our parents had just cut off the TV and were headed for bed, dad went upstairs but mom pulled us aside. 

“I don’t think you two should sleep in the same bed tonight.” 

Rita immediately frowned and stuck her lip out, I was pretty bummed too. “We all have to get up and get ready to leave early tomorrow, you can’t risk you father walking in on you two sleeping together, at least not until you get to the cabin and you can share a bed,” she added. 

We were both disappointed but knew she was right, so we agreed. She gave us both a hug and kiss and said goodnight.

“Mom, thanks, for everything,” I said before she left. She looked at me knowing what I meant, and put her hands on our chins and smiled. 

“You can thank me later.” She winked at us and went to her room. So much for the sweet, caring mother. Rita and I kissed each other a long kiss goodnight and went to our rooms and reluctantly went to sleep. 

I woke up around 2 for some reason and couldn’t go back to sleep, so I thought I’d creep into Rita’s room for a little while. When I got to her room I noticed she wasn’t there, so I figured she was in the bathroom. When she wasn’t in the bathroom, I figured she was in the kitchen. When she wasn’t in the kitchen, I didn’t know where else to look, then I saw her through the window that leads to the backyard, she was sitting in one of the swings we had back there. I went outside and sat in the swing next to her.

“We haven’t used these swings since we were little kids,” I said, but she didn’t respond. “Is something wrong?” 

She looked at me with one of the saddest faces I’ve ever seen on her. “I could have really messed things up with us, I just can’t get over the fact that we almost weren’t “we” anymore.” 

“It was as much my fault as it was yours, if not more, I overreacted.” 

“I was so scared you would hate me, that you wouldn’t want to be with me anymore, I cried myself to sleep last night at the thought of us being over.” 

I had this sinking feeling in my gut when she said that, I hated myself at that moment for putting her through that. “Rita I am so sorry I put you through that, I don’t know what I was thinking. I will never hate you, no matter what you do, I love you too much, and I’ll never leave you, you’re stuck with me forever.” 

She pulled me up and wrapped her arms around my neck and kissed me. She smiled as she pulled away. “I wish I could stay with you, but I know we can’t sleep together tonight.” 

I looked around the backyard and got an idea when I spotted the truck. “Maybe we can, follow me.”
