Prologue (They thought they knew her)

Posted in Everything They Wanted Her To Be by Sligv Vreen Orxy on May 17, 2009

Some people believe that they’ll never get anywhere in life, they dwell on the fact that they’re not beautiful enough to deserve anyone. Heather was an awkward girl – people knew her by name, found her as an inspiration, but always seemed to be antisocial around everyone. To her, she was unworthy and hated everything about her, always thought that people were saying things to make her feel better about herself.

Rubbing her eyes, she looked outside the window. The sun was shining and the birds were singing, the typical scenery you’d get on a Sunday morning in the month of June. School was out for the summer and the only thing shed manage to accomplish was to stay up all night playing computer games. Tired, she rolled over to face the opposite wall and fell back asleep.

“Are you awake yet? Get off your lazy behind and do something for once. You just lay in bed all day and do nothing, how am I supposed to explain to everyone that you do good in school when you can’t even set a good example?” her mother yelled from upstairs, “I know I should have signed you up for summer school.”

A bit of drool was hanging from her mouth, Heather slobbishly threw her covers to one side and walked downstairs. She had already left by the time she got to the kitchen, so much for having respect for the only child she had. Heather couldn’t stand her mother, not only because she talked too much, but the fact that she was a drug addict, and the worst kind. She never asked her mother why she chose the route, but like everything else, she blamed her nonexistent father who she’s never seen.

Another thing she hated about her mother was that she always insisted that she do extra activities at school, especially doing classes during the summer. Heather hated that she herself didn’t finish high school and insisted that she was going to take instructions from a person who takes drugs, consumes large amounts of alcohol, and didn’t even bother finishing school. “Why take control of someone’s life, trying to make it better, when you’re not exactly someone I should be looking up to?” she always answered when the subject came up at dinnertime.

Well, now that she’s gone, what should I do today? She thought to herself, reading over the list of chores her mother left her on the table. Yeah, like I’m going to do that, she crumpled the piece of paper and threw it on the floor. Instead, she decided that she’d take a walk in town, making sure that she had her mother’s credit card and a copy of her driver’s license in hand. The only thing she was grateful for was that she looked so much like her.

The funny thing about Heather was that alone, she differed so much in personality, somewhat like her mother. She was a wild child, doing things that everyone who knew her would be shocked about. This didn’t stop her frequent appearances at the local park, meeting up with local males. Of course, you know exactly what she was up to, but it’s not something you’d think of a sweet and innocent sixteen year-old. The next time, however, would be a different and life changing experience she’d never forget.
