Sorrow Swallows My Screams

Chapter Twenty Four

Chapter Twenty Four:

Zacky’s POV:

-Two weeks later-

The past two weeks of my life hadn’t been very exciting. I’d managed to sneak in a fair bit of time with Brian, which had been about the only good thing. My father had beaten me a few more times and had thrown a bag of flaming human waste through my window. How mature. Though the weirdest thing that had happened was my mother was being nicer to me. Strange, I know. She’d never really cared about me all that much, just pretended to when she had to talk to people who had kids of their own.

But she’d cooked me dinner a few times and even offered to help me with my homework, though she’d done less schooling than me and… as if I did my homework…

I don’t know. My life has been so unpredictable lately. I guess I could find it exciting, if it wasn’t so boring. Ha. What a philosophy that is. Anyways, I’m supposed to sneak over to Brian’s house soon, so I think I should quit talking to myself and get a move on.
