::Jane slammed the door behind her, hard enough to feel it in the floor. She stopmed down the stairs and sat down outside, taking a breath of the cool night air::

so what the fuck do I do now?

::she sighed and pulled a pack of cigarettes from her pocket. She only smoked when things were crazy, and she was smoking more and more in the past few weeks. She took one out, and lit it, thinking back on her fight with her mom::



"Mom, what the hell? You told me you'd drink less and...fuck, you're more drunk than i've ever been!"

"Jane, don't you ever call me a drunk again! I am allowed to enjoy the occasional glass of wine if I want to." Her words were slurred as she spoke, and she was holding a half-empty bottle of merlot.

"A glass? Is that what you call a glass of wine, 2 shots of tequila, a sam adams and half a bottle of merlot? I can't believe you!"

Her mother glared at her, then slapped her across the face. "Fine then, Jane. Go live with your father, then, if i'm so terrible. Ungreatful little bitch. I do all I can, and you...you..." She took another swig from the bottle and sat down on the couch. She took a second swig, then glared at her daughter again. Jane glared back and went outside.



::she rubbed her face self-conciously, wondering if her mother's handprint remained on her face::

::Riley was taking a jog around the neighborhood when she saw Jane sitting on her porch looking clearly upset. She decided to go over to her and see what was wrong::

"Janie my love are you ok, you don't look too good"

"Not great, but...you know, i'll live."

::she frowned::

"And don't tell me not to smoke."

::She sighed::

"Ok, I wont but what I will tell you is that my mother died when she was 29 and I was 9 years old from Lung Cancer. Thats all I'm going to say on that topic..."

::she nodded and took another drag::

"I only do it when i'm stressed::

::she ran a hand though her hair, revealing the side of her face she had hidden, without thinking::

::Riley sighed again and then noticed a large hand print on Jane's face and put her hand over her mouth::

"Oh my god, Jane what happened? Are you ok?"

::Jane looked up at her::

"A little fight with my mom, it was nothing."

::she rested her cheek on her hand again, in an effort to cover it up, or make it look less terrible::

::she frowned::

"I'm not going inside, so that's not gonna happen. And like I said, it was just a little fight."

::Kate looked out her bedroom window and saw two people on the lawn across the street. She knew a girl lived there around her age, but she had never met her. She walked outside and across the street.::

"Hey Riley, I haven't seen you in awhile!"

::She turned to the other girl, who looked upset, and saw a handprint on her face.::

"Hey... I'm Kate. I live across the street."

::Kate was embarrassed, obviously something had happened.::

"I know we've just met but, are you ok?"

Shit. I don't want to be nosy, but I hope she's alright.

Finer than a hogs hair...eh, she's trying to be concerned I guess...

::she held back the sarcastic reply::

"I'll be OK."

And... changing the subject.

"So, I can't believe we've never met before. I'm just across the street, and all."

"Shy and defensive. Yeah, maybe we should. I need to get out more.."

because my mother is always drunk and I have nowhere else to go...

"I used to be painfully shy, but I grew out of it. If you ever want to go out and do something, just knock on my door."

::Val was on her way home from work when she saw Jane and Riley outside Jane's house. Jane looked distraught and was smoking which Val knew was never a good sign.::

"Jane?" she said as she walked up to her, "Jane, honey what's the matter?"

::Jane snatched her cigarete back and looked at Val::

"You know much better than to do that."

::her voice was icy, she and Val weren't that close, and she was starting to recall why::

"It's nothing."
