A Family’s Crossroads: New Beginnings

Zera was worried about her dad he just left the house, and he was angry than she’s ever seen him, and she just couldn’t help the teras the flowed down her face. She wrapped her arms around her body. She looked to her brother hoping someone would comfort her, but the twins just looked at the ground and Sebastian looked at her with a hard stare. She doesn’t know what to do, she’s so scared.  

“Where is he?” Sebastian asked, his voice was cold. 

“S-Sebastian please calm down.” Zera’s voice was shaky.  

“Calm down.”  

“CALM DOWN!” Sebastian yelled.  

“How can I calm down when my little sister just told us she basically just threw away her life!” 

“Sebastian please w-we didn’t want this I promise.” Zera tried to tell him. 

“Where… Is… He?”  

“Please you can’t hurt him please!”  

“ME hurt HIM!” Sebastian’s voice was getting louder, and the house was almost shaking with how loud he was being. 

“He should be grateful I don’t go to his house right now and sho-” Sebastian is cut off by one of the twins grabbing him by the arm and pulling him out the room. As they walk away Sebastian was shouting ever curse, he knows in Greek. Zera looks to the only person still in the room with her. 

“Lucas Please say something for the love of the Gods.” Zera’s voice was so broken. Lucas just looked at her he didn’t really know what to say. 

“Does he know?” Lucas asked. If the bastard knows and is choosing to just ignore what is happening he wouldn’t stop his brother and father from killing him. 

“Yes, we found out four weeks ago.” Zera looked away from him. She knew that her brothers would probably kill her boyfriend, but she just couldn’t let that happen. She loved him too much to let anything happen to him. 

“Zera, you have to understand your on 17.” Lucas says. He pulls her into a hug 

“You have a year left of school how are you going to do this?” He looked at her, his grey eyes filled with sadness.  

“I promise we have a plan.” Zera said  

“I’ll get dad and Sebastian to calm down to hear you out, but I think it would be best if you get James down here, ok?” Lucas got off the couch and walked out of the room. 

Zera nodded as he was walking out the room. She called James and told him to come over so they could talk to her father and brothers.

Howdy Hey! My name is Crislyn Lance, but you can call me Cris. I love reading fantasy books, and fanfics. I love creating characters and studying characters and why authors made certain characters the way they are and how that character moved the story along. I love writing fiction from stories with big dragons to stories about fairy/pixies. I love the feeling of joy I get when I write a fiction story because it allows me to express the ideas that go on in my head after a long day.
