Chapter Seven: That is unclear for now

9.4K 258 24

I watched as my sister came into the front room. If looks could kill people she would already be dead. This is her fault. If she hadn't told mum that I had been drunk I wouldn't have my mother and father standing in front of me while I slumped on the sofa ready to explode with anger and annoyance.

My parents have been nagging me now for at least ten minutes about how immature I had been and irresponsible. I watched my sister head towards the stairs but I snapped my eyes back to my mother and father as I heard my father raise his voice.

"I expected more from you! Are you even listening?"

"Yeah. I'm sorry I already told you that before," I began.

"We don't care. It's clear you're not really sorry," said my mother.

"How can you say that? I regret what I did and I won't do it again.  It was stupid to do and I don't know what I was thinking. I still can't believe she told you though...." I stopped knowing that was a stupid thing to say.

"This has nothing to do with your sister," said my mother.

"She told us for your own good," said my father.

"Oh yeah you believe that. She just did it because she is a complete cow!" I shouted anger getting the better of me getting to my feet having enough of this.

My father pushed me back down on the sofa and putting his face right near mine. "You will not speak to us or about your sister like that!"

I looked at him, well more like glaring at him. I couldn't believe this. My sister misbehaves all the time and she hardly gets in trouble for it. Oh she doesn't get money for like a few days like that's a punishment. She can buy clothes again after that and besides she looks good in anything.

Why did she get away with murder and when it came down to me and getting drunk it's like I did something terrible? I understand it was wrong and a mistake but my sister has done far worst. I will never forgive my sister for this and her having Colin too it's like she has completely destroyed my life.

"So I get grounded while my sister doesn't get money for a new dress. Don't you think that's a little unfair?"

"What?" asked my mum.

"My sister breaks my door which still hasn't be replaced and doesn't get a little bit of cash for a dress and I get grounded for getting drunk. If you want me to admit yeah maybe I enjoyed it but she has done far worse things than I did and she hardly gets punished. What is the difference between me and her?" I asked.

"We expected more from you. We didn't believe we would get this sort of stuff from you. You disappointed us," said my father as he left me sitting there heading up the stairs. My mum sighed before she turned away from me and followed dad.

I sighed. I had disappointed them...those words hurt more than anyone could understand. If I disappointed them over getting drunk, what would they think if they found out about my feelings? This is why I can't tell them and probably never will. This has to be kept a secret. This feeling right now hurts and I don't want to disappoint my parents ever again.

I looked down at my leg which still hurt. It was getting late and I couldn't be bothered to go up stairs now when I knew it would be a bit of a struggle. I grabbed the blanket that lay across the arm of the sofa chucking it over me before placing the pillow behind me on the arm of the chair before laying down on the sofa with my head on the pillow.

With the light still on I thought I would struggle to sleep but as I closed my eyes I almost fell asleep straight away.


"Arrow are you alright?" asked Paul as we both headed off the school bus.

"Yeah I'm fine why?" I asked him.

"You hardly said anything on the bus," Paul pointed out.

"I'm grounded because my mum found out about me getting drunk," I explained to him.

"How did she know that?" asked Paul as we headed into the school building.

"Two words, my sister," I said to him.

"Now that is out of order," said Paul.

"Yeah and you flirted with her," I laughed.

"We all make mistakes," said Paul laughing and I joined him.

We headed through the corridor squeezing through now and again towards our lockers. "Hey isn't that Trish?" I asked.

"Yeah that is. She must be back today," smiled Paul.

"Oh crap I forgot to ring her last night," I said. It had been my parent's fault they made me feel so angry and upset I completely forgot about ringing her.

"Arrow," Trish called. We had reached my locker by now and Trish came rushing towards us.

"Trish hey your back," I smiled.

"Yeah I am. You forgot to call last night," said Trish.

"I'm sorry about that. My mum found out about me getting drunk from my sister and well we had this argument including with my dad and well I got angry and upset and completely forget I'm sorry," I said to her.

"Not to worry I understand," said Trish as she leaned into kiss me on the lips. I kissed her just as Colin came out from a classroom and his eyes landed on me and Trish. Trish pulled away smiling at me. Trish took my hand and with Paul following behind us we headed to form.

I couldn't help but watch Colin out the corner of my eye. I wonder if he knew my sister had told me off. He had helped me out of getting into trouble I wonder if he would be a little bit annoyed. I doubt it he doesn't care about me and why would he? I'm younger than him and to him I'm just his girlfriends little brother and nothing more.


"I can't. I'm grounded for at least a week they said," I explained to Paul over the phone. It's Friday night and the last two days at school have been crap. The worst part is I'm now stuck at home on a Friday night because I'm grounded. My parents have hardly spoke a word too me since Wednesday's argument with them.

They are both working late but I wouldn't dare go out with my sister home. If I went out she would tell my parents and I'm not up for another argument and they probably ground me for even longer.

"I'm sorry. I'll see you Monday," I said before I hung up on him. I slumped back on the sofa. I'm so bored I'm tempted to go see what my sister is up too. It's not like her to stay home, I swear she is doing it just to keep an eye on me and being the annoying person she is.

A knock at the door broke my track of thought. I got up and went to the door. I pulled it open to find a police officer on the door step. I looked at him strangely wondering why he would be here.

"I'm here to speak to Isabelle Sharp," he said to me.

"May I ask why?"

"I'm here to talk to her about her mother and father. She is the oldest," he said to me.

"Wait...what? What has happened?" I asked him beginning to panic.

"They both got into a car crash," he said softly to me.

"Izz!" I shouted

Finally after a few minutes my sister made it to the door. "What is the problem officer?" she asked looking at me weirdly.

"Your mother and father are both in hospital after a car accident," he said.

"Are they going to be okey?" asked my sister.

"That is unclear for now."
