as I walked down the sidewalk I felt the eyes of people staring at me. mainly because I had on grey sweatpants, a shirt that was three sizes too big for me and a hoodie that had a mustard stain on it.
I didn't give a fuck. I was so pissed right now. I just needed to be out of that house. with only $32 and my cell phone in my pocket, I began to walk to the plaza by my house.
once I reached the plaza I began to walk towards the store I was looking for. I wrapped my hand around the cold metal handle and opened the door. the quiet ding dong signaling to the workers that a customer entered the store.
"hi welcome to Hot Topic." said a young woman standing behind the cash register reading some sort of magazine.
I began to walk towards the back of the empty store. I looked up at the long wall of band tees. I scanned my eyes through all of them until my eyes landed on a Pierce The Veil shirt. that's the band that we were listening to in the car. they sounded pretty good so I decided to get it. but with my luck, the one I wanted was all the way at the top. I sighed and looked around for a worker. I spotted a boy with shorttish brown hair, snake bites, and gages with a black Hot Topic shirt on.
I walked over to him and tapped on the back of his shoulder.
"excus-" I was interrupted by his high pitched scream.
he jumped slightly and turned around to look at me with wide eyes.
"oh... I'm sorry, you just scared the crap out of me." he said, taking deep breaths.
"my apologies but do you think you could help me get that shirt over there?" I asked, pointing towards the shirt.
he followed my finger and stared at the shirt.
"PTV eh? they are a good band you know, they make some real good music, but I heard that they are a bunch of wet backs."
I giggled a bit. he grabbed the talon pole thingy and began to walk with it until he tripped and fell face first into the ground. my eyes went wide.
"oh my gosh are you okay?" I said, bending down and examining his face, he had small cuts but nothing major.
"I'm fine," he sighed and dusted himself off as he got up. "but I don't think the talon is." he whispered as he lifted it up only to see that it was broken in half.
"I'm so sorry. I'm so clumsy and stupid and I didn't mean t-"
"it's okay, really. it was a accident." I said.
he smiled down at me.
"okay well there is only one way to get the shirt now." he said.
I felt like I knew what he was talking about but I was hoping it wasn't what I thought it was.
"I have to put you on my shoulders so you can get it."
I sighed and nodded my head. he grabbed me by my hips as I jumped and softly landed onus shoulders. I immediately took hold of his head so I wouldn't fall, making sure not to pull his hair.
"what made you get into their music?" he asked me, trying to strike a conversation so that he wouldn't look awkward.
"well I heard them on the radio and I thought they were really good..." I responded, grabbing ahold of the metal hanger, yanking the shirt.
with one final yank it gave away.
he bent over to put me down, making sure not to drop me.
"I'll check you out." he said with a wink.
I was about to protest before I realized that what he just said wasn't a compliment, rather a statement of him ringing up my item.
he chuckled at my flustered face. we both walked over to counter and he scanned my shirt.
"$7.56" he said.
I handed him the money and he took it. I grabbed the bag and was about to turn around before he touched my hand.
"hey, you're pretty nice. do you mind if I asked for your number?" he shyly asked. "I'm tony by the way."
I smiled and looked down.
"yeah sure. I'm violet." I wrote my number on a piece of paper, grabbed my shirt and was on my way.
I got halfway through the door before I bumped into something hard.
"oh sorry I didn't mean t-"
Vic looked down at me.
"what are you doing here?" he said in a stern voice.
"I-I just came to buy a shirt Vic what's wrong with you?" I said as he grabbed ahold of my wrist.
"I did not allow you out of the house young lady." he said through gritted teeth.
"ow Vic you're hurting me stop!" I began to raise my voice as he squeezed harder on my wrist.
"woah guys what's going on?" tony said, walking over.
"stay out of it toothpick!" Vic yelled to tony.
tony backed up slightly in defeat.
"Vic don't talk to him like that!" I protested, trying to pull my hand free of his grip.
"wait do you even know this guy?" tony asked.
I sighed aggravatingly and said "yes this is my step dad.
"look you don't have to leave with him if you don't want to." tony said, trying to convince me to stay.
"no we are going home now!" Vic yelled before he picked me up by my hips and threw me over his shoulder.
tony watched in silence as Vic began to walk out of the store . I looked back up at tony and waved bye.
he smiled and waved back.
a/n this was poorly written because I'm currently working on a different Vic ddlg story that will be much better than this one so stay tuned for that and thank you all who still comment and vote on my chapters although this story has failed.
