This might be a little bit weird in a way
Chapter One
      A woman of about twenty was standing in the middle of a room. She was surrounded with boxes filled with clothes. She was a tall woman with long blonde hair and sparkling sea green eyes". Dustin, this place is so beautiful, I absolutely love it".
    " I knew you would love it, I've been searching for a place like this for a year now".
    " Have you decided where our wedding is going to be, honey?", She asked.
    " No, I'm not quite sure whether it should be in the church or in my mom's back yard".
    " Well, you should better figure out quickly, because the wedding is only three months away".
    " I know, I know, I just don't want to hurt my mother's feelings by telling her that I want to have the wedding in the church".
    " I'm sure she'll understand sweety, I wouldn't care if the wedding was in the church or in your mother's back yard, just as long as we get married is all".
    " I guess I'll just tell her that we're having the wedding in the church".
    " That's a very good idea, I wanted it in a church anyway".

Chapter Two
    A woman is standing in front of a man in the kitchen. She looks really furious at the man sitting at the table eating dinner.
    " Why do you ruin everything for me Max?!, " " Do you have any idea how long I've been working on that story you just threw away!"
    She storms up to Max and starts sobbing uncontrollably. Max tries to hold her, but she quickly backs away from his grip.
    " I've told you a million times that I'm sorry, I didn't know it was important, honest". She looks at him with such hatred that he backs away so abruptly that he spills his coffee all over himself. " I thought it was just some kind of junk mail they send to get your hopes up, honey please forgive me".
    " I've had enough with your screw ups Max and I want you to get your things and get out before I call the police".
    " But baby, I truly am sorry, please don't do this, please". Elizabeth walks up to Max and slaps him across the face so hard, blood starts oozing out of his nose instantly.
    " Don't you ever call me baby again, get out!", " Don't even worry about your things, I'll make sure they're on the back porch waiting for you tomorrow." She gets really red in the face and looks as if she is about to explode. " Don't think about knock because soon as you do, I'm going to call the police!", " Now go!"
    Max sadly leaves while holding his nose and goes toward his friend shane's house.

    Briana hears a knock on the door and quickly drags Max into the house and gives him an ice pack. " Did you get in a fight with one of your so called buddies again?"
    " No, it was Izzy, we're having alot of troubles lately.", " I just don't know what happened to us, we used to never fight but know its like hell in that house with her yelling at me all the time".
    " What started it this time?"
    " I threw away some mail of Izzy's thinking that it was junk mail to get her hopes up of being an author."," I felt really bad after finding out that it was for real. He sighs deeply before continuing. " " I really screwed up this time".
    " I'll have to have a talk with her later".
    " Where's Shane?"
    " He's at work, the boss put him on the night shift now".
    " He can never get a break can he?"
    " Nope, not since Travis was fired".
    " Well, I guess I'll be staying here tonight, if that's all right with you".
    " No problem, there's a guest room right down the hall there.", " Help yourself to anything, make yourself at home".

    " You have a joke for every situation, don't you Shane?"
    " Sure do".    " Well, I'm pretty tired".
    " Me to, let's get to bed". He yawns as gets up to go to their bedroom and nearly trips over his own feet because he is so tired.

    " Well, I better be getting home, my mom will worry if I stay out too late, see ya".
    " See ya, maybe we'll play again sometime, bye". Kimi starts walking towards her house which is a great distance to walk, but she does it any how. She decided to take a short cut into a dark alley that smelled of mildew and decaying garbage, When she hears a noise coming from behind her. She turns around to see who is there and she sees a figure in the dark corner of the alley.
    " Who's there?"
    " Your worst nightmare".
    " Andrew is that you?"
    " No, you skank, it's me, Lane." He comes out of the dark corner and walks toward Kimi. Kimi turns around and starts running, but Lane is faster than her and he blocks her way". Where do you think you're going little lady?"
    " Leave me alone Lane".
    " No, I don't think I will this time." Lane forces Kimi against a wall. There he starts to feel all over her until he reaches her shorts. He unbuttons them and pulls them off along with her panties.
    " Get off me!" Kimi stuggles but Lane just keeps making her head his the wall. Lane takes off his pants and boxers and drags her to the ground. He forces himself inside her.

    " Briana, I just don't know what to anymore".
    " Why don't you forgive him Izzy, he loves you don't you see that?"
    " Yes, but I really wanted that book to be published. It was so inportant to me Briana".," If only you knew".
    " I really wish I knew what you're going through so I could give you better advice, but i don't so just take this advice".," If you love him Izzy, don't get mad at him for throwing away your mail, that is just stupid to do that even if it was important".," He didn't do it on purpose".

    " Are you still mad at me?"
    " No, not anymore, I was stupid to be mad in the first place".
    " Well, it was your dream to become an author and I just threw that away, I'm really sorry".
    " That's okay Max, they sent me another one and it said that they weren't impressed with my story".
