"Isn't Brenden the best Emily?"
It was the day after the party. Me and Jess were outside sun baking by the pool. It was our day off from training and Jess loved catching me up on all the goss.
"He acts really tough and mean on the outside but he really is a real softy."
I rolled my eyes. Listening to Jess ramble on about her boyfriend wasn't the most riverting thing in the world.
"And what is this music? EW!
" she said changing the station on the radio.
"Hey i like Alexisonfire."
"If i caught on fire I'd burn you to death with me
," Jess sang along to the wingey voices of the band.
"I can't take this sh!t are u serious?" I exasperated.
I grabbed the radio and changed it back to Alexisonfire.
"Hey!" Jess yelled making a move for the radio but i held it away from her and stood up. "Em no fair give back the radio!"
Jess tried to snatch the radio from me but i held her away from it.
"What are u gonna do. Huh? PUNK!?" I said teasing Jess as she made furious snatches at the raido.
"Em give it back .. i'll tell dad!"
"Oh is little bitty baby Jessie running to daddy now. Afraid of big bad Em?"
Jess lunged at me but i side-stepped her and she fell into the pool.
"Yes i Won, I won, I won!" I chanted lifting the tiny raido above my head.
"Oh my god girlfriend Im SO! cold!" Jess said resurfacing.
"Whoever said winners weren't grinners lied!" I said doing some kind of war/victory dance on the spot.
"Alright, alright you can listen to ur music .. just help me out of here."
"No way hosé!" I said back away from the pool. "You'll pull me in too."
"Would i ever do a thing like that em?" Jess said doing the shifty eyes
"Come on em-"
Jess's words were drowned out by a loud bang that echoed around the backyard. I looked down at the pot plant beside me to see it shatter and dirt fall from it. I looked at Jess who stared back at me stunned, then the whole backyard exploded into a battlefield. Bullets were being fired non-stop at me. I dropped the radio and dive rolled behind a tree and out of site.
I could hear Jess screaming. Poor young innocent Jess, she wasnt ready for fighting like this, well more ready for a ambush in our own backyard.
"JESS DO SOMETHING!" I bellowed from behind my tree, but Jess either wouldn't do anything or couldn't.
Dark clouds begain to form as bullets stopped hitting the tree i was behind. I heard two people pouring something onto the ground behind me. I chanced a look around the tree and a elbow made contact with my face. I could taste the blood in my mouth as i tried to see who had hit me. My eyes focused and i saw a man infront of me wearing a black balaclava. I could see he's yellow teeth baring at me. I tried to move towards him but found i was stuck. I looked down and saw a ring of salt circling me and my tree. While i had been hit, another man in a black balaclava had poured salt around me.
The two men left me at my tree and i glanced at what was happening to jess. I felt sick, it had started raining on Jess who was lying next to the pool no moving, with obvious black burns on her skin.
"Holy water those bastards," i thought to myself.
There was a 3rd guy in the same balaclava as the other two. He bent down next to jess and picked up her limp body.
"How dare he touch my sister with his unworthy hands," I though furiously.
It happened in a spilt second, when my anger had surged through me a huge light had come down from the sky and hit the man holding jess. He was thrown into the air and landed in the pool dead.
I tried to catch my breath, the huge bolt of lightening that had killed the man might have killed jess aswel.
The two men who were left now split up, one ran towards jess and picked her up and jumped the fence and ran out of site. The second one had came running up to me withdrawing a gun.
"You killed my friend," he said raising the gun at my head.
Now i was really confused .. how was his friends death my fault? He got stuck by lightening. Its uncommon, yes, but not impossible.
"You killed my sister!"I spat furiously at the man. I didnt care i was about to die, all i cared about was Jess.
"She isn't dean, but you are."
It was raining hard now. I closed my eyes. This was it, i was going to die in a circle of salt. Die wearing pink aviaters and my swimmers.
