Five years later
A lot of things have changed since that night when I was raped. For one, I'm now seventeen and no longer living with my mother. She passed away last year from drug overdose. I had the option to go live with my grandparents, but they had never cared much for me as their grandchild since my mother had birthed me out of wedlock. My grandparents most certainly did not appreciate that. So now I am living on my own in a tiny apartment working two jobs while also attending school. That's ok though. Even when I had been living with my mother, I felt like I had been living alone.
Another thing about that night that I should mention, the white cat that had licked my nose shortly after the man had left? He had come back home with me where I fed and took care of him inside the safety and comfort of my room so Mother wouldn't know we had gained a new pet. Otherwise she may have killed him. I had given him the name Nakir after the Angels of Justice, Munkir and Nakir

This is not where I wanted to end up. Not at all. How in the hell did I even get here? Oh yeah that's right. I remember now. I was dragged here on a dare. She said it was going to be funny. That something good might come out of it. That in the end we'd be laughing. Well, guess what, Natalie? I'm not laughing right now and by the look on your face? Neither are you.
"So, anyways, enough about me. What do you do for a living?" the all too eager guy sitting across the table from me with oily hair dangling in his face asked me. What was this guy's name again? I glanced down at the sticker on his faded Abercrombie & Fitch t-shirt. His name was Tim. I slid my gaze over to the large timer sitting on the podium up front where the girl who had arranged this was standing with a large fake smile plastered on her face. I still had another minute and a half with this guy. I inwardly shot myself in the face.
"I'm a female impersonator," I dully retorted.

I've never been the prettiest person in school. My body isn't all that great and my skin is far from perfect. Instead of wearing pretty sparkly clothing, I wear anything and everything black. My hair is a deep midnight black. My sky blue eyes are rimmed thickly with black kohl eyeliner. Because of they way I dress, I stick out in my uptight school. I've never made any friends, and frankly I don't need any. Why take the chance of being stabbed in the back by someone you care about?
My parents barely talk to me since they were always busy with work. I may as well have lived alone. No one cared about me, so what was the point in living anymore? I was tired of having everyone, students and teachers, glare at me like I was a waste of space and their precious time.
But that was all before I met him.
He made everything I knew about the world
He made it all change.

You wiped away my tears
You opened my eyes to see
That there's nothing left to fear
You sang songs directly from your heart
Bringing peace, love, and joy to all
It's what saved me from falling apart
Because you catch me before I fall
You inspire me to never give up on my dream
You tell me to keep on believing
No matter how hard it may seem
And because of this
You're the reason why I keep on breathing

The sky was a cloudless black exposing the brilliant shine of each individual star like diamonds that had been tossed into the air and became stuck in the sea of night sky. On that night, the moon was round and full with light as it glowed peculiarly bright upon a small house nestled snugly in a neighborhood of other homes just like itself. Only this one was a bit different. Looking down the street of the neighborhood, you would see all the lights turned off inside the homes signaling that the occupants inside were sleeping comfortably in their beds on this clear, cool night. The only house lights that could be seen belonged to the house lit up by the full moon in the diamond sea night sky.
Inside the house and into the dully lit room was a girl. Her room was tidy enough with a desk, vanity, dresser, and stereo all comfortably fit into her small bedroom. The lamp by her bedside washed the room with its dull light as the girl sat curled up on the bed clutching a single picture to her ch

I flung open the door calling out to Acelin or, well, anyone really. Upon hearing no response throughout the room, I released an annoyed sigh knowing I shouldn't have ever expected differently. That girl had the same blinding curiosity as her mother. She didn't care about the dangers of an unknown world, not if it gave her answers to her endless questions. I moved toward the kitchen to fix myself a cup of tea as I pondered over things. I just hoped the Hatter would keep his word and not reveal too much to her so that Sil

I could feel my legs giving out as I ran up the stairs that led to the lookout point. There was more than likely going to be people up there smiling, laughing, and just being happy in general. That was fine; I'd make them all leave so I could cry in peace. I stumbled on one of the stairs as I felt my legs begin to wobble with the strain to keep going. I kept myself from falling by throwing my hands out to the steps in front of me so I could keep going. As soon as I hit the top stair, I quickly glanced around ready to scream at anyone to leave if I had to. Only there was no one there. I figured with it being fall, almost winter, there would be couples here cuddling and kissing on one another, but there wasn't anybody. Relief swept through me that I could just be alone without anyone there to judge me for, no doubt, the inhuman wails that would emit from my throat.
My knees buckled from the exhaustion of running all the way here and up four flights of steep, st

I was walking down the sidewalk enjoying the crisp afternoon breeze that caressed my skin. The sun shone brightly in the sky and, for once, I felt like things were beginning to look up despite having told my parents of my engagement. I adjusted the purse strap on my shoulder; my eyes catching sight of my wedding ring. The fire opal reflected orange and red hues like Luc had found a way to capture fire and contain the flames inside this tiny gem.
I had to hand it to the demon, the ring was breathtakingly beautiful. I released an exhausted sigh as I kept walking forward. Things had been going well between Luc and me lately even though Michael had nearly ruined things for us not too long ago. I felt like we were steadily growing closer especially after our most recent conversation. I smiled and tucked a lock of hair behind my ear as I glided down the sidewalk feeling like a completely new person.

I waited restlessly in the alley between two old, worn down buildings that had long since been abandoned and ransacked for its remaining goods. The sun had set beneath the horizon of the sky hours ago as my patience started wearing thin with waiting. Typically I could stand by for hours—days, even—if need be, but this was one thing I could not wait forever on. I had been very specific with my instructions as to where to meet so there was absolutely no excuse why she was ta—
"Sorry, I'm late," a voice purred behind me. Chills ran down my spine at the seductive tone. I turned around to face the mouth of the alleyway watching as the silhouetted female figure stalked towards me; her hips swaying with each step she took forward.

I had just returned home from meeting with Michael when my phone started ringing from inside my pocket. I glanced at the caller I.D. and noticed the number was restricted. Which meant it could only be one person.
"Hey, Luc," I answered tossing my stuff onto the bed as soon I walked into the room. I vaguely wondered how he always knew the exact moment when to call. It's like he could just sense how distressed I was and wanted to help me relax anyway he could. Unfortunately, the simple sound of hearing his voice wouldn't put me at ease like normal.
"Leighra, how are you?" he breathed into the phone.
"Alright, I guess. Just returned home from talking to your dad's oh-so-lovely former brother," I grumbled sitting down on the edge of the bed.

Hitsugaya was still young and reckless. Renji Abarai had to grab him back at the collar to restrain him. "Easy, lowlife."
Hitsugaya shot him a withering glare at the suggestion. He bit his comment about how utterly ironic that was back with effort. He tugged himself free of Renji. "Can't believe we're letting him get away."
"With that attitude of his."
Renji had felt conflicting emotions at the attitude their friend had displayed too. He didn't appreciate being abandoned, but he appreciated being shunned for caring about it even less so. "Guy's a dick, granted."
"Stupid Ichigo." Traces of defeat wove into his words. They had never seen Ichigo act like this before.
It was like he was hiding something.
Don't come with me, he'd said. And something about breathing space.
Hitsugaya's nose creased into his frown. "I'm going back."
Hitsugaya's eyes revealed he wasn't so sure. "To you know where."

Business with the Hatter
After Acelin had safely made it up the stairs to disappear onto the balcony, I grabbed my cloak from my bedroom being sure to fasten my holster around my chest and load my guns. Before I grabbed my sword, I removed Acelin's clothes from the dryer and folded them; I placed them on the foot of the bed in the hopes she would see them. I slung my sword across my back and silently left the tower, throwing my hood up as I stepped out into the sunlight. Ducking quickly through the brush that covered a path I had made for my own personal travels, I moved swiftly towards the Hatter's mansion. Not only because that was where the twins were most likely residing, but there also was much he and I had to discuss.

After I had returned inside, Sinclair was nowhere to be found. I rolled my eyes finding it convenient that he would send me out of the room so he could disappear on me to avoid any further questions. I headed into his room to borrow the bathroom so I could open the package I had received from the Hatter.
I untied the black string letting it fall to the white tiled floor. The paper was wrapped precisely and neatly around the object; each edge of the folds feeling sharp and crisp enough to cut easily across the surface of the skin. I carefully unwrapped the gift, feeling the paper crinkle beneath my fingers. The paper fell to the floor alongside the str

It had been a year since the accident happened and although everyone was still allowing me any time I needed to "take a break" and "get back on my feet", I refused. The main reason being Jeremy wouldn't want me to mope around and put my entire life on hold just to mourn for eternity over his death. If I truly wanted to move on with my life and get passed what had happened a year ago, I needed to be on my feet and living my life like I normally did; working, friends, volunteering it's what had kept me halfway sane through all of this. It's what I needed.

I couldn't sleep at all that night. I don't even think I blinked the rest of that day. My friend Bria called to join in on the excitement with me. We gushed over me being able to see Zak's gorgeous self in person. Then after I got off the phone with her, I called another one of my friends, Natalie. After telling her about my exciting news, she merely hung up the phone. I was used to it though since she did it most of the time anyways when I was acting more abnormal than usual.
I sighed as I lay in my bed still unable to go to sleep. My eyes slid over to my alarm clock. A quarter after 6.
"Ugh! You've got to be kidding me!" I whined as I rolled over onto my side. "I still have to wait another three and a half hours before meeting him."
What can I do for three and a half hours? I wondered to myself. 'Sleep', a little voice whispered inside my head.
"Oh, little voice, if only it were that easy," I sighed thanking my lucky stars that I lived alone. Otherwise many
