APRIL MARATHON: PROMPT SIX

The Campsite

 

“Did you hear that? What was it?” Mackenzie whispered as she glanced around, but all she could see was darkness. She hated camping and this was the exact reason! She wasn’t the kind of girl who got a kick out of sleeping under the stars or roasting marshmallows by the fire; she hated that kinda stuff, but yet here she was. Her sister had convinced her that going out with some friends would be a good distraction, but now the redhead was having serious doubts about it. Breathe and relax. She knew that she was probably just overreacting or worrying about nothing, but she could barely see a thing and couldn’t help but start to panic. Biting down on the corner of her mouth, the brunette turned and moved back into the tent, searching through her things for a flashlight. “Kenz.” Turning her attention to her sister, Mackenzie took the flashlight from her older sister and moved back towards the entrance of the tent, shining it out into the beyond. 

As she shone the flashlight into the darkness, she felt a shiver run up her spine. She felt like she was being watched, but she couldn’t see anything at all. “Rox, there is something out there. I know there is.” Maybe this was why it was called Devil’s Tramping Ground, Mackenzie wasn’t sure, but she knew that she wished they were still back in Hartsville, even if it hadn’t always been smooth sailing. Hartsville certainly had its moments and had left Kenzie with a certain amount of PTSD, but at least she knew what she was getting herself into. “Wait, is that Jordan?!” she whispered, nudging Roxy as she waved the flashlight around. “Over there.” She could see a figure close by but couldn’t quite make out who it was. She didn’t know Jordan all that well, but she had seen him around town and knew him as her baby sister’s 10th grade English teacher, but she didn’t understand what he was doing or why he seemed to be creeping around the tramping ground. 

Running her tongue along her lower lip, she raised the flashlight and hit the palm of her hand with it as the light seemed to flicker on and off for a moment. Turning to face Roxy, the redhead grabbed the blonde and pulled her from the tent, deciding to go and explore and find out exactly what it was that was hiding in the bushes. She didn’t really think it was Jordan, but it wasn’t as if he would have been the first serial killer that she’d come across - not that she thought he was like that at all. He was married to her friend, but maybe that was why Kenzie found herself needing to find answers. “Kenz, you’re worrying about nothing. It was probably just a wild animal or something.”

Easter was Mackenzie’s favorite time of the year and it had been ever since she was a small child. She and her sisters had been raised in a very religious household, so that particular holiday held strong value within the Winter’s family. It represented the death of Jesus and him rising three days later. It wasn’t about chocolate or the easter bunny, not in her household, but what made it the redhead’s favorite time of the year was the fact that Easter Sunday was a day that her mother put aside to spend time with her three daughter’s. It didn’t matter where Amelia Winters was or what she was doing, Easter Sunday would always be a mother-daughter day and Mackenzie lived for it.  She could still hear her mother’s voice as she walked into the house where Kenzie lived with her grandparents and two sisters. “Are my girls ready?!” She’d always get so excited. No year was the same as the last and Mackenzie looked forward to it every single year. She hadn’t spent a day like that with her mother since she had run away at 18, leaving Hartsville and everyone in it behind her, but maybe it was time to make peace. It had been six years after all. 

“Give me back my Easter eggs!” Mackenzie almost jumped out of her skin when she heard the small voice coming from behind her. She had been so lost in her own world that she hadn’t been paying any attention and had not realized that her sister’s daughter had been trying to keep her attention for the last fifty feet. “Please! Aunty Kenny!” Laughing softly, Mackenzie knelt down with the easter basket full of small easter eggs in hand. “Oh. You mean these easter eggs?” she questioned with a small smirk, moving them just out of reach as the four-year-old made a grab for the basket. “Gimmie!” The toddler screamed, causing Mackenzie to slowly get back on her feet and stand up straight. “And what’s the magic word, hmm?” she questioned. “Please..” she added, watching as her niece tried to jump for the basket. She was very determined - a clear Winter’s family trait, though she eventually gave up and pouted, folding her arms across her chest. “Please aunty??” she whined, holding her arms up for the basket. “Good girl,” she encouraged, holding out the basket of easter eggs for her. “Now, let’s go and see if we can find some more,” she whispered, taking the toddler’s hand to continue their Easter egg hunt around Prestw0od Lake.

Biting down on her lower lip gently, Mackenzie continued searching around the lake for easter eggs with the bouncing and very energetic toddler. This was a very different easter experience but one that she was happy to have become a tradition. She liked being able to spend time with her family and do normal easter activities. “Ready to go home now?” the redhead asked, biting down on the inside of her mouth gently as she watched the child grabbing a small pink easter egg from behind a tree. “Yes, yes, yes!” her niece replied, jumping up and down on the spot a couple of times as she shoved the easter egg into her already over-filling basket. “Wow. You have so many. Enough for Aunt M to have one or six, huh?” she asked with a small grin as she walked towards the toddler. “Let me help you with those,” she added, holding out her hand as she was handed the easter basket. Wrapping her hand around the handle, she turned her attention as she walked along the path so that they could head home, spotting a few familiar faces, she offered a small wave. “If you’re working tonight, I’ll see you later. I am coming to the restaurant for a drink. I need one or ten after this one has had me running around after her,” she smirked as she walked past Zachary, offering him a small wave before continuing the short walk back to her car.

APRIL MARATHON: PROMPT THREE

Things with Sarah seemed to be finally getting back on track. They’d been good friends once upon a time - no, they’d been like family. She had been her older sister’s best friend.. She had been her rock, she’d been like another sister to her, or at least that had been the case until Mackenzie had decided to sleep with her boyfriend. She’d only been 19 at the time and changed a lot since then, but still, she knew that she had hurt the other female a lot and had been trying to make up for that ever since the two of them had reconnected at the coffee shop. She wasn’t sure if they would be successful in rekindling their friendship, but she was hopeful! It wasn’t like she had an awful lot of female friends, preferring to stick to herself, so when Sarah had agreed to meet her for a girls’ day out, she had been more than happy about it. 

Drinking, dancing, and a show. That seemed like the perfect way to spend a Sweet Saturday. Maybe even a few tasty treats from the bakery up the road too. Hearing her phone start to ring, Kenzie answered it and raised it to her ear, a warm smile spreading across her lips when she heard the other female’s voice. “Hey. I’ll be at Kraken & Grill in like, half an hour. See you then!” she stated as she hung up the phone and made her way over to her car. She opened the car door and slid into the driver’s seat, fastening her seatbelt before making her way towards the restaurant and bar. Reaching over, she turned the radio on and turned the music up. She wished that she was as talented as the voice on the radio; maybe then she wouldn’t have been stuck at a dead-end job working for tips as a bartender, but then again, maybe if she actually turned up to her shifts she wouldn’t have been. 

Taking a deep breath, Kenzie shook her head and freed her mind of the million things that seemed to be flooding it as she made the short drive to the restaurant. She was starving, but mostly, she wanted a drink that she didn’t have to get herself and at a place where she didn’t work. Finding a park, she opened the door and grabbed her purse and phone, sending Sarah a quick text. “Hey. I’m here. How far are you?” Once she’d sent the message, she shut the car door and locked it before heading inside and making her way straight for the bar, glancing around as she weaved her way through the various people standing around, making sure that Sarah hadn’t already arrived. After perching herself upon the barstool, she leaned over and waved down the bartender. “Hey, can I just grab a glass of wine please?”

The House ON Hill Street - ** Face Claim ** - Wattpad
 

#past drabble

2013

“I’ve already told you, Mackenzie. You are not going anywhere!” the older woman scolded the 16-year-old. Who did she think she was? She wasn’t her mother, she couldn’t tell her what to do or where to go and Kenzie reminded her of that often. Rolling her dark brown hues, she turned on her heels and stormed out of the house, slamming the door behind herself as she left her grandmother’s home and walked over to the awaiting car. “Hey, thanks for picking me up, Brody,” she mumbled as she opened the car door and slid into the backseat. She could see her grandmother out of the corner of her eye, running out of the house and waving a slipper as she protested her granddaughter leaving. “You are just like your mother!” she screamed as the car pulled out of the curb and headed down the road. She was used to her grandmother carrying on like that now, and so were all of Kenzie’s friends. Her grandmother always had something to scream about, but Kenzie let it roll off her back and tried not to let it bother her, though that was easier said than done. 

Biting down on her lower lip, Mackenzie sunk into her seat and pulled her seatbelt over her slender frame as she pulled out her phone. Once she’d unlocked her phone, she searched for her girlfriend’s last message. “I need to see you.” She could feel the tear cascading down her cheek as she sent the message. Avery was her favorite person. She was the one person who Mackenzie knew that she could always talk to no matter what and in that moment, she was the only person that Kenzie wanted to be around. “Hey, Mac. Sure you don’t want to come to Joey’s party? It’s gonna be a real baller.” Glancing up from her phone, Mackenzie glanced over at her friends and shook her head. “Nah. I’m just gonna go for a walk. I need to go and clear my head,” she mumbled, shrugging her shoulders, but she knew that the boys would understand. They knew her grandmother, Brody having dated her older sister for over a year. “Call me if you need anything and I’ll come and pick you up.” Nodding, Kenzie gave the boys a little wave as he pulled over and opened the car door. “Thanks, B.” 

 

After walking through town for ten minutes or so, Kenzie felt her phone vibrate in her pocket and pulled it out; smiling when she saw her girlfriend’s name pop up on her screen. “Hey, baby. Meet me at The Vault. I’ll be there in twenty. Love you xx.” It was amazing how one little text from Avery could make her feel so much better. She shoved her phone back into her pocket, knowing that Avery wouldn’t expect a text back - she’d been with Mackenzie long enough to know how she was and that she’d turn up. Running her hand through her hair slowly, she turned the corner and made the short walk to The Vault. It was their special place. It was where Mackenzie had first told Avery that she was in love with her. It was where they’d had their first real kiss so it was special to her. “A?” she called out as she walked through the entrance. She didn’t even know if the place had another name, but to her and Avery it was the vault. Maybe they’d named it that because of it’s shape, or because for the first months of their relationship (before Mackenzie had come out to her family), it was the place they’d escaped to in order to keep their secret. It was a vault, it was their vault. 

“Hey red,” Avery grinned as she bounced around the corner and into Mackenzie’s embrace. As Mackenzie wrapped her arms around the blonde and placed a gentle kiss against her girlfriend’s soft lips, she felt a tear escape her eyelid and roll down her cheek. “Baby what’s wrong?” Mackenzie slowly pulled back and wiped her tear, biting down on the corner of her mouth. “I had a fight with gran,” she mused, shaking her head and walking over to sit down on the floor in the corner, shaking her head as her gaze moved from the floor to her girlfriend’s face. “I’m too much like my mother apparently. I’m too much of a handful.” Pulling her knees up to her chest, she wrapped her arms around her legs and tilted her head to the side. “Can we just stay here tonight?” Avery didn’t say a word but nodded, moving to sit down next to Mackenzie. “I love you, Blondie,” she whispered, moving her head to her girlfriend’s shoulders and closing her eyes.

APRIL MARATHON: PROMPT ONE

13 Giphy ideas | giphy, jeannette mccurdy, tired gif
 

For the first time in what felt like forever, things were starting to look up for Mackenzie, so she’d decided that maybe it was time to upgrade her apartment for something a little bigger and nicer and maybe even closer to town. She’d been living on the outskirts of town ever since she’d arrived back in Hartsville almost eight months earlier and although her apartment was nice, it was a little too small for the red head’s liking, so after getting in touch with the real estate agent, she’d set up a meeting with Aubrey. She’d never actually met the woman before, but she had heard great things about her and was hoping that maybe she could help her find the house of her dreams; one that was a lot bigger than her current apartment and a home that she would be happy to grow old in! 

After getting herself ready, she grabbed her purse to head out of her apartment so that she could go and meet the other woman; having arranged to meet her at one of the properties just outside of town. Wrapping her hand around the doorknob, she pulled it open though was greeted by her ex girlfriend, Avery. She wasn’t exactly sure what they were now - they weren’t together, but there were times that they didn’t exactly feel broken up either. Running her tongue along the inside of her mouth, she swallowed the lump that had formed in her throat and offered the blonde a small smile “Ave, what’s up?” Kenzie questioned, biting down on the corner of her mouth for a brief moment. “Stop that. You know I hate it when you do that.” Kenzie tried to play coy and act like she had no idea what Avery was talking about, but she knew it was the lip biting and that caused Kenzie to do it again, sucking her lower lip between her teeth as a small smirk tugged at her lips. 

“You’re annoying,” Avery smirked, grabbing Kenzie’s arm and pulling her from the apartment. “But you’re ready, so let’s go. I have a surprise for you.” Kenzie knew that she should have declined or told the blonde that she was busy but this was Avery she was talking about. This was the girl that she was in love with and had been trying to win back ever since she’d arrived in town. “Okay, give me a second.” Avery nodded and let Kenzie’s arm go so the redhead could close and lock her door before quickly sending Aubrey a text to try and reschedule the appointment. She hoped that she wouldn’t mind and hated messing her around, but this was important - more important than finding her dream home, or at least as far as Kenzie was concerned. “Okay, I’m all yours. So where are we going?” she asked, shoving her phone into her pocket as she turned her attention to the other female and followed her down the stairs. “The Urban Garden. But I’m not telling you why. You’ll just have to wait and see.”

#PastDrabble

Another Saturday night meant another Party and Mackenzie was not about to turn down the opportunity to get completely trashed. It was her thing. Everyone around her knew that she enjoyed getting drunk and breaking her grandparent’s rules. If the redhead knew one thing, it was how they felt about partying and drinking in general. Alcohol was banned from the house - neither of them touched the stuff and they hadn’t since Mackenzie’s mother had been a teenager. They told her it was because of their own daughter’s out-of-control behavior, but what they failed to see was that Mackenzie was traveling down the same dark path that her mother once had. Shaking the thoughts from her head, she picked up her phone when she heard it vibrating against her bedside table. “I’m coming. They just fell asleep,” she quickly sent her friend before shoving her phone into the back pocket of her jeans and heading over to the window. She pushed it open before quickly climbing through it, her teeth sinking her into her lower lip gently as she made the quick run down her driveway and to the awaiting car.

After Kenzie had reached the car, she quickly pulled the door open and slipped her slender frame inside before slamming the door shut heavily. “Come on! Let’s go. What the hell are you waiting for?” she smirked, punching Derek in the arm in a bid to signal him to start driving. “Hey, Kenz! Want a drink?” Turning her attention to the female beside her, the redhead’s eyes widened and she shook her head. “Seriously, Ash?! You need to ask?!” a small smirk spread across her lips as she extended her hand and grabbed the bottle of tequila that the other girl was holding. She raised it to her lips and took a large mouthful before passing it around to the others in the car. “So, where the hell are we going?!” Partying and getting lit on a school night was not the best idea, but she didn’t care about school or much else if she was being completely honest. She was failing school and was already about to drop out - maybe she already would have had it not been for the therapist that she was seeing. 

Arriving at a secluded park half an hour later, Mackenzie had already consumed half a bottle of tequila and was beyond tipsy, but she had no intentions of going home or call it a night. Smirking, the fifteen-year-old stumbled out of the car, the bottle in hand, and raised it to her lips to take a generous swig. “Okay, but that is some good sh*t!” she stated, holding out her hand to swipe the joint from her head. “You know you’re going to be grounded for life if you go home in this state, so why don’t you crash at mine tonight, baby,” Derek smirked as he moved up behind the female and draped his arm around her neck. Turning her head in his direction, Kenzie rolled her dark brown hues and shrugged him off as she brought the joint to her lips and inhaled slowly. Derek had been trying to get into her pants since he’d moved to Hartsville six months earlier and she had turned him down every single time. She already had her eyes on someone and Derek certainly wasn’t her type, though he also wasn’t one to take no for an answer - something she would learn a few hours later.

“I don’t care! I’m going out and there is nothing you can do to stop me!” Mackenzie screamed as she rounded the corner and walked down the hallway, though her grandmother was right behind her. “Mackenzie Gabriella Reign Winters! You are not stepping foot out that front door.” The redhead completely ignored her grandmother. Her grandfather had tried to say it was just a phase and to ignore the fifteen-year-old. She was just being rebellious like her mother had been at that age, but her grandmother knew better. She was spiraling out of control and had been ever since the death of her father. The day he’d died had broken her. Not completely, but just enough for her not to really care about anything anymore and especially not the ‘rules’ that her grandparents were attempting to inflict on Mackcnzie and her two sisters. “You’re not my mother. She left. She didn’t want me, remember?! So stop acting like you are!” Mackenzie’s words seemed to be enough to cause the older woman to stop dead in her tracks because once she was out of the house, she glanced over her shoulder and no one seemed to be following her. 

As tears rolled down her cheeks, Mackenzie ran. She didn’t want to stop and she didn’t want to turn back, despite the two phone calls that she seemed to miss. She couldn’t breathe and she felt like she was having a panic attack, but she didn’t stop, not until she found herself running through the cemetery. Falling to her knees in front of her father’s gravestone, she buried her head in her hands and sobbed. She missed him. He hadn’t been the best father in the world, but he’d been her dad, and the day he died, she lost her mother too. She hadn’t even been there for the funeral and it broke her heart. “Daddy,” she whispered, wiping the tears from her eyes as her phone rang again. Slowly, the redhead pulled her ringing iPhone from her pocket and glanced down at the screen. Seeing her older sister’s name appear across the screen, she declined the call. She loved Violet, but she needed to be alone. She needed to talk to her father and talk to him about everything. 

“I wish you were here,” she began, shaking her head as she wiped her eyes. “So do I, Mack.” Hearing a voice caused Mackenzie to almost jump out of her skin as she turned her attention to the older female. “What are you doing here, Vi?” Walking towards her younger sister, Violet crouched down on the ground beside Mackenzie and shrugged her shoulders as her gaze fell on their father’s gravestone. “You always come here when you’re upset. I know it helps you to talk to dad, so I wanted to make sure that you were okay.” Biting down on the inside of her mouth, Mackenzie shook her head as another tear fell down her cheek before she shifted closer to her older sister. “I hate her. I’m never going home, never.” Mackenzie hadn’t felt like she had a home since the day her mother walked out and often found herself rebelling against everything that her grandparents said. She loved them, but they weren’t her parents and she reminded them of that at every opportunity. “Listen, M. I’m scared that whey will send you away if you don’t just do as you’re told. I heard them. They were talking about sending you to that shrink and if you don’t go..I think they are talking about sending you to a school for girls.” The words that her sister spoke sent a shockwave through her entire body and without saying a single word, she screamed as loud as she possibly could.

#secret

bring the lights up, bust the doors down!

Ten Years Ago
 

TW; Grooming, sexual assault, and eating disorders. 

Some secrets are meant to stay secret forever. That was how Mackenzie had been raised. She could still remember her grandmother’s comment when she’d come out to her as bisexual. She’d grown up in an extremely religious household, but it wasn’t the fact that Mackenzie was bisexual or that she had a girlfriend that bothered her grandmother, but what those around her would say. She was worried about what her friends would say. As far as she was concerned, Mackenzie could do what she pleased and sleep with whoever she pleased as long as it remained a secret. Secrets were the foundation for any strong family. That was how she’d been raised and that was a lesson that she would carry with her throughout her entire life. Maybe that was what made it easy for him. He was supposed to be a friend. He was the “only one who understood and accepted her”, or at least that was what he told her. With every touch and every glance, the fourteen-year-old became even more convinced that she was in love. “Age is just a number”, “no one will understand”, and “it has to be our little secret” were sentences she heard often, and she believed it.  

“Here, you have to eat something.” Glancing up, Mackenzie offered a small smile and shook her head. “I already ate,” she mumbled as she gestured to the plate covered in crumbs that she’d placed on the bench. It was a trick she’d learned a few months ago, a trick that would fool all of those closest to her into thinking she had already eaten, so when they questioned her, they would be none the wiser. Truthfully, she had eaten anything but half a carrot, a couple of grapes, and a cookie that she immediately felt guilty for eating. He had told her that she was fat and needed to lose a few pounds. She would be beautiful if she dropped that last few pounds, so she’d attempted to do just that. Hearing her phone beep, she glanced down at the screen before looking over at her sister. “I have to go.” Kenzie pushed herself up from where she’d been sitting and bit down on the inside of her mouth as she slowly stood and offered her older sister a small wave before she turned on her heels to go and meet him.

It was that night, the day before she was set to turn 15 that he decided to take things all the way. She was a woman now and what he was doing was natural, it was love, so why did she feel sick to her stomach when he touched her? Why did she need to keep his secret? The tears that seemed to fall down her cheeks wouldn’t stop, but he told her it was because she was hungry and took her to get McDonald’s. Why was he feeding her when she was fat? Was it because he was rewarding her for being a good girl? His good girl? The thought sent a chill up her spine, but he was quick to put her mind at ease. “You can eat and still lose weight. That’s what these are for.” He held up two fingers and Kenzie knew exactly what he meant. She tried. The toilet bowl would be her new best friend, but she couldn’t do it. She couldn’t bring herself to throw up the contents of her stomach, or maybe she just wasn’t built for that. Sobbing, she ran from his home and didn’t stop until she got home, locking herself in her room for the rest of the weekend.
