Journal Entry One.
September 2nd, 7.54 p.m
Yesterday would have been her 21st birthday if it wasn’t for him. I’ve tried to forgive him, I mean, that’s what we are meant to do, right? Christians I mean. We are meant to forgive those who have wronged us, but every single time I think I am close to forgiving him for what he did to Makenna and me, I can’t. I get so angry. I hate him with every single bone in my body and I don’t know how to cope with that. I want to talk to Kayla, or even Eve and Aves, but I can’t. What if they don’t look at me the same again? I think about killing him, y’ know. He is locked away, so I don’t know how I’d even get to him, but the thought is there. I know it’s wrong, but I can’t help how I feel.
Maybe something is wrong with me, maybe I’m broken. I really don’t know, but what I do know is that I feel like crying. If she was here we would be on a 24-hour bender, but instead, I’m sitting in my room, listening to Britney Spears, and completely sober. I know if I drink again I will only go on another three-day bender, and things are not back to normal with Avery since my last. I need a drink of water, I’ll be right back. Okay, back. I guess, I just miss her. I miss her smile and her laugh, I even miss her stealing my clothes! I wish things were different, but I know they will never be how they were again, so for now, I’m going to just try and live my life the best way I know how and try to keep her memory alive.
I’ll never forget her. Not ever.

drabble marathon five
“Hang on, I’m coming,” the redhead mumbled as she scrambled for the phone. Her head was still pounding from the night before and the loud noise of the phone ringing did not do anything to help matters. Reaching for the phone, she held it to her ear and glanced down at her watch to check the time. It was just after 7 am, “Ya?! She mumbled grumpily. She had no idea who the heck would be ringing her so early and on a Sunday morning?! “Excuse me, Mackenzie?!” The redhead swallowed harshly when she heard her grandmother’s voice, of course, it was her grandmother. Who else would call her at such an early time on a Sunday morning? Even her girlfriend wouldn’t call her until at least 8 am. “Sorry Meemaw,” she mumbled quietly. She really couldn’t be bothered listening to a lecture about how to answer the phone correctly, but she knew she would get one anyway. “Did you only just wake up?!” Mackenzie ignored her grandmother’s question, knowing that she would only be given another lecture. “What’s u[? Are you okay? Is grandpa okay?”
Silence lingered between the two Winter’s women for several minutes and it worried the redhead. Her grandmother wasn’t usually quiet and at least not for this long; she was getting ready to drop a bombshell on Mackenzie but the redhead didn’t know what. “Is it Magnolia?” she finally asked, breaking the silence between them. “No, it’s not your mother. I know you don’t get along with her right now, but she is still your mother.” Mackenzie rolled her eyes at her grandmother’s comment. “It takes more than giving birth to be a mother. I don’t want to talk about her. What’s wrong?” Mackenzie’s stomach muscles tightened and she was riddled with anxiety as she waited for her grandmother to tell her what was going on and what had been so important that she’d needed to wake a very hungover Mackenzie. “Your grandfather and I are selling the house. The one you’re living in. We were offered well over market value for it and we couldn’t turn it down. I’m sorry. Mackenzie? Mackenzie are you there? Hello?” Mackenzie was completely silent for several minutes as the news sunk in. “Yeah, sorry I’m here.” How could they do this? They were her grandparents and they were kicking her out? “You can come and stay here with us for a little while if you need? Until you find somewhere but..” Victoria paused and Mackenzie quickly interrupted. “I know, she is there. Listen, I appreciate the offer, but I am done with Magnolia. You may forgive her, but I don’t. If you really wanted to help me, you wouldn’t be selling this house right out from underneath me!” she snapped more than she’d intended before hanging up the phone. A tear trickled down her cheek as she placed her phone down on her bedside table and she slowly took a seat on the edge of her bed. What the hell am I gonna do? She didn’t even know how much longer she had left to find a place to live, but she knew she needed to find something and somewhere in town. She had only just gotten back with Avery and she was determined not to leave town again, at least not without her girlfriend.

Drabble Marathon: Four
“Oh my god, don’t drink it all!” Mackenzie giggled as she reached for the bottle from Everly. They were meant to be at school but like most weeks, instead of turning up to their classes, they’d decided to get completely trashed in Mackenzie’s bedroom. “What do you take me for?” Everly asked, causing a small smirk to tug at Mackenzie’s lips as she reached for the bottle of tequila and brought it to her lips to take a generous swig from the already half-empty bottle. “On second thoughts, don’t answer that!” She added with a small chuckle, causing Mackenzie to laugh softly and give her best friend a gentle nudge as she handed her back the bottle. Scooting across her bed and shifting off of it, Mackenzie walked across her room and to her chest of drawers, pulling open the top one before quicking searching through it. “Mack, what are you looking for?” The redhead ignored the question until she found a small plastic bag. “Gotcha.” Turning her attention back to Everly, Mackenzie held up the small bag, a smirk tugging at her lips.
“Where the fxck did you get those from?” Everly asked as she placed the bottle down on the bedside table and got up from where she’d been sitting on Mackenzie’s bed. “What are they?” She added, arching a small brow. “Ecstasy pills. I got them from Brandon. He is a friend of Kayla’s,” she shrugged. “One of the perks of having an older sister,” she giggled, moving over to her bedroom door just to make sure it was locked. She knew her grandparents would be furious if they discovered that she was skipping school and drinking alcohol, but drugs? They would completely lose it and Mackenzie would be grounded for life. “Aren’t you worried we will get caught? You know your grandmother will go mental if she walks in on us..” Everly pointed out. “She is lunching with some friends,” Mackenzie responded, putting on her version of a posh accent as she spoke, shrugging shortly after. “She won’t be home for ages, So how about it?” She questioned, grabbing out one of the small pills and holding it out to her best friend. “Besides,” she smirked as she took one of the pills herself. “If we get caught... We flee the country.”
Shoving the bag in her pocket, Mackenzie looked down at the pill that she was holding between two fingers before she looked over at the other female. “Bottoms up,” she mused before opening her mouth and sticking the tablet on her tongue. She reached for the bottle of tequila, deciding to wash the pill down with some alcohol. Bringing the bottle to her mouth, she took a generous mouthful of the liquid and swallowed the pill at the same time, a smirk tugging at the corner of her lips. “Eve, I need to tell you something.” She knew that the effect of the drug hadn’t begun to take control of Mackenzie yet, but that didn’t stop her from wanting to be completely open and honest with the girl she’d known since birth. She was her longest friend, she was her best friend and she needed to tell her a secret she’d been trying to keep to herself. “Eve, I think I’m gay. Maybe bi since I still think your brother is hot,” she smirked, trying to make light of the situation and trying to make herself feel a little more comfortable. “Seriously, Kenz? I already know. Avery, right? I’ve seen the way you are around her.” Mackenzie simply nodded, a tear falling down her cheek. “Yeah. Avery.”
