That's what you get
Mom and Dad:
I'm sorry I was such a crappy daughter. I'm writing to let you know that I'm leaving. I'm going to Los Angeles to try and become someone. It's obvious that I'll have no future if I stay here. You both are always away and I'm lonely here by myself. I'm leaving to make some new friends and start all over. I've packed up all my things and I am leaving my house key here with you. I'm taking my car and you both can forget I was ever here. I just want you to know I love you both. If life intends for us to meet again, then so be it. For now, this is goodbye.
She set the pen down next to the letter and grabbed her bags. She stuffed them in the trunk of her small car before going back inside for one last time.
She looked around and breathed in the familiar smell of her home. She sighed, running a hand through her wavy, black hair and turning towards the door. She made sure the door was locked before shutting it behind her and shutting herself out of the house.
This was what she wanted. There was no turning back now. She got in her car and pulled out of the driveway, turning down the street and heading towards L.A.
The city was so different than Ohio. There were so many tall buildings and not to mention angry people on the road.
"Get off my ass, douche bag!" Lily shouted to herself at the guy behind her, flipping him off out the window.
The nerve of some people. He honked at her and swerved into the next lane to get by her.
"Jesus Christ... Got somewhere to be?" Lily grumbled, turning up the volume on her stereo, blasting A Day To Remember.
One thing that stayed the same about Lily was her music taste. She loved bands like A Day To Remember, Pierce The Veil, Motionless In White, Avenged Sevenfold, Sleeping With Sirens, Green Day. But she never listened to Black Veil Brides since Andy left. She had heard people talk about them at school but she didn't think it could be the same Black Veil Brides she had once known. And honestly, she didn't want to find out.
"Jesus Christ... I have somewhere to be!" Andy shouted at the cars in front of him.
It didn't help his temper that some bitch had flipped him off earlier. If only he had realized that bitch was Lily.
L.A. traffic was always horrible and he had learned to drive extremely aggressively. He was already late for their recording session and now he was going to be even more late.
He groaned as the familiar white car pulled up in the lane next to him. It was the girl from earlier. How did she catch up to him so fast? He looked over at her. He studied the side of her face and her big, black plugs that matched her wavy, black hair.
Suddenly, the girl looked over at him. He looked away, embarrassed to be caught staring at her. He slowly raised his eyes back up to find her still looking at him. The front of her face was just as beautiful as the side of her face. She smiled at him and it hit him like a ton of bricks. That smile. The girl in the car next to him was Lily.
He blinked a few times to make sure he wasn't dreaming. Her smile dropped to a flat line and she saluted her middle finger to him once again. She looked ahead to see that traffic had begun to move. She glanced back over at him once more before zooming off down the lane.
Andy was confused. He thought Lily was the one who had stopped writing the letters but why did she hate him so much?
Okay, I was tailgating her earlier... But I thought what we had was special. I just don't understand.
Feeling satisfied with herself, Lily continued onward. She had no idea who that guy was and honestly she didn't care. She had given him what he deserved and she never had to see him again. L.A. is a big city and she figured her chances of seeing him again were slim to none.
But they weren't.
