Chapter 1

It was a dark and dreary day and it was storming outside when a girl looked outside. "A perfect day to enjoy school." the young girl said while watching the rain fall. "Sarah! Your school called and they said that school is canceled for today." Her mom said and then she layed on her bed with sadness in her eyes. "But I was actually wanting to enjoy school today." Sarah said as she turned on her TV to watch the kids channels. No one could understand why she didn't want to watch tv, even if her favorite show was on at times. But if though her favorite show was on at great times for her to watch, she just didn't want to watch it all the time but her mom knew that she was just being silly. "Hey. Do you want to go watch the storm?" Sarah's mom asked and then Sarah turned the TV off and followed her mom to the sun room that her mom was giving her since her mom wouldn't have a use for the room. "You know that you are a weird child, right?" Her mom said as she watched Sarah smile with glee as they both sat together and then Sarah sat down. "Why do you say that?" She asked as they both were looking at food menus for lunch. "Usually kids wouldn't want to watch a storm. When I work along side with kids, all they want to do is watch TV." Her mom said as she was trying to decide what to eat for lunch. "Oh well." Sarah said while watching the rain fall and watching the trees dance with the wind. But before her mom could actually buy lunch, there was a knock at the door and then her mother went to the door. "Here comes the monkey." Sarah said to her self so that no one could hear her and tell on her as she could see the guy who was dating her mom that she had hated. "Hey! There's my little princess." The guy said as he sat down in her dead dad's chair which made her hate him more but she had to do a fake smile. "Hey, John." Sarah said as he started to hand her the food that she loved to eat. John smiled a genuine smile and said "You can call me Johnny. Or you can even call me daddy." not seeing her mom trying to stop him while mouthing "too soon." as Sarah got up and went to her room while grabbing a pack of crackers with a bottle of iced coffee. "What the hell's wrong with her?" John said as he lost the smile after she closed her door and started to put the food he got her in the fridge because she could eat it later. "Well remember that her father died not too long ago and you just told her to call you daddy. I would say that's insensitive to me." Her mom said and then John slapped her. "You better be on my side and tell her to stop being so damn sensitive and I won't kick her out!" John said before her mom looked at him. "Kick her out and you can just forget about having kids with me and don't think about sleeping with other women because my little girl is precious to me and I will not have a man who just barely entered my life tell me what to do with my child." Her mom said and then John grabbed her face and say "What the hell was that? You do not have the authority to tell a man what to do when he is deciplining my soon to be daughter." not knowing that Sarah was behind him and grabbing a chair to stand to his head. "This is my daughter, Johnathan. Not yours. If she was your daughter then I wouldn't tell you what to do. I respect that you'll do the same." Her mom said as she watched Sarah pull out a frying pan from a cupboard behind her and got ready to hit him in the back of the head when he ever let go of her mother. "Let go of me." Sarah's mom pleaded as John's grip on her face got tighter and he was starting to hurt her. "I'll only let go once you say who the man of the house is and that you were wrong to tell me what to do." John said while smirking thinking that he will have his ego inflated. "I'm sorry but that will be impossible." Sarah said as she hit him on the back of the head knocking him out and then John automatically let her mom go as he unconsciousally fell to the ground. Sarah and her mom picked him up and put his self driving car and then sent it to his house knowing that once it started it couldn't be stopped. "Are you sure we can't call the police?" Sarah asked knowing that he was gone and then she went inside to inspect the food that he wanted her to eat. "Yes, I'm sure and what are you doing?" Her mom asked as she watched Sarah throw the food away. "Just what I suspected. He was trying to drug me in order you and him can get privacy." Sarah said as she knew what the smell of tranquilizer was. "How did you know that?" Her mother asked suspiciously and then Sarah looked at her and said "The week I went to camp I snuck out and signed up for a camp where kids who want to work on the police force and the middle week they warned of tranquilizers." while her mother smiled. "She's just like me." Sarah's mom said as tears started to go down her face. Sarah knew that she did the same but not for police work but for chef training and she knew that even if she fought Johnathan then her mother would be in danger. The next day, he came back with a regular bag of food, that she had checked, and they both found out that he forgot what happened the day before and they found that this is their rewind button. "Hey Johnny." Sarah said while fake smiling still hating him because he tries too hard to be her father. "Hey, princess. Hungry?" John said as he genuinely smiled and handed her the bag of food. "Thanks. You two have fun." Sarah said as she looked at her mom and then winked while both John and her mom blushed. "So Margaret. What do you want to do?" John asked as he held their bag of food and then Margaret smiled and took John to her room before turning on the TV so they can eat while watching TV. Sarah didn't like when John try too hard to be her father and she didnt want everyone except him start fighting with him becuase she knew that if she fought then she would get kicked out. And she knew that her mom wouldn't be able to save her so she did her best to be friends with John even though she hated him. But she knew that if she actually tried, and now she wanted to, then both her and John would find out the things that they might have in common. She swallowed her hatred and waited for John to go the kitchen. "Hey, Johnny. I got a question." Sarah said while making John look at her with amazement and surprise. "Sure, princess. What's the question on your little noggin?" John asked not knowing what she was wanting to say. "I would if we could hang out, not today, and get to know each other more. So that we won't be strangers anymore." Sarah and before John said yes, she started to go to her house while hearing John say "Yes! Me and Sarah are finally getting along!" excitedly. She was happy that she could make him happy and she wanted him to feel like he was wanted there at the house. Sarah couldn't believe it that she was starting to like to hang out with John and felt like he was an actual friend. John went home after a hour so he could start planning for their perfect day of getting to know each other even if she liked stuff that he didn't. "I don't know what she likes. Should I just rent a couple of movies and have dinner and movie night? Or should I take her on a shopping spree?" John said add he paced around his bedroom and he looked at memories he had with his exes to get some ideas. "I thought girls would want to plan these kind of things but I am loving it." John said while writing the schedule that he was planning for the both of them to do. John was excited because he never had the chance to get to know his future daughter in laws because the girls of the women he was was seeing wouldnt even talk to him. He wondered why kids hated him when he dated their mothers but he didn't want to confront about it. And when he did feel like talking to the mother about it he would start to feel betrayed and then he stayed away from them for a little while so that he can feel better. No one could understand how John could be betrayed if the children don't respect him but to him, when they don't respect him it felt like he didn't belong there. And since Sarah is the only one giving him the time for them to get to know each other, John had to make sure that nothing ruins their day. But John knew that he couldn't tell other people what to do even if he wanted to, so he had to come up with how to keep the day worry free. Sarah was starting to get a little scared to see what john was planning but she knew that she had to keep her butterfly knife on her in case she needed to protect herself. John wanted to wait till Sarah's birthday to go with his plan but he knew that if he asked Margaret about Sarah's favorite food or what she liked or her birthday then he would have to tell her his plan and if he had to tell her, Margaret would tell Sarah and ruin the plan. John hated that he had to lie to the love of his life for months and he wanted to tell her but he couldn't. "What's wrong, babe?" Margaret asked after she sent Sarah to school. "I can't tell you because if I do, your gonna tell her and I'm gonna be upset." John said as she looked at him in the eyes. "I promise that I won't. Please tell me I won't tell Sarah." Margaret said as she knew that if she promised him that she wouldn't tell he would tell her. "Fine, a few daus ago she asked me if we could get to know her and then I said 'yes' of course and I am planning on giving her the best birthday and then me and her would get to know each other throughout the day." John said and then Margaret said as she tried not to laugh at him "I think she was talking about that day when she asked. And I always give her the best birthday because I'm the one who gave birth to her." and then she got up and went to the kitchen. "Well at least try to let me take her to give her the best birthday she's ever have. Please, babe. This is very important to me." John begged Margaret while she was making lunch for the both of them lunch as she thought about letting John do her birthday. "On one condition." Margaret said while putting the hamburgers in the oven and then started to cut the veggies. "What is it, my love?" John asked as he went to help her with the onions so that she doesn't cry because of her unable to stop the onion juice to go in her eyes. "You bring her home for a party that I set up and you cut her birthday cake." Margaret said while putting the cut veggies on a different plate and give her some space. "Deal." John said moving out of the way so that Margaret could put cheese on the burgers and then letting the burgers finish cooking. John didn't want to ruin their deal but he didn't know if Sarah needed a party since she was turning nineteen, so he kept his mouth shut and let her mother do what she wanted to do. John went home hours before Sarah came home and he punched his bedroom wall in rage because he now had to rewrite his plans to see what he could do to give Sarah a great birthday before he had to bring her home. He remembered that Margaret would usually have a trip to do before Satah's birthday for a job that she was forced to participate and he could use those extra days alone with Sarah as an advantage. "I need to get her to come with me for the weekend while her mother is awau. But I don't think she will hang out with me longer then she planned and she loves to use logic to get her way. And if she uses it on the plans I have us to get to know each other, I will have no other option then to get her to come to her senses." John said to himself as he made a longer schedule for the both of them to do while her mother was away since both John and Sarah knew that her mother was gonna ask John to watch her while she is on her trip. "Yes, this is it. The perfect three day weekend plans I have ever made." John said smiling at himself in the mirror and then he sat on his bed sighing in relief. He couldn't believe that he had made a long list of things for him and another person to do in just three days but the things werent for him even though people often thought that he was egotistical. No one could understand why John cared about other people other then himself but he didn't want to only think about John so he did anything he could to make other people happy. There was one thing that he knew that they both of them enjoy was watching bird and he knew that there was a perfect place to bring her. "He should be here." Sarah said while making he three of them dinner. "Don't worry about him. He will be here. Just keep going." Margaret said as she watched Sarah cook better then she ever could. She didn't want to get jealous of her own daughter but Sarah was learning all the time and getting smarter by the hour and Margaret couldn't believe that Sarah was getting as smart as she wanted to be when she was younger. "Hey sorry that I'm late. Had to stay late at the store because the boss is gone because she never works in the store when she is on her period. So she watches us on the cameras but they suck so I got some extra time." John said as he went to wash his hands and then he sat next to Margaret. "But wouldn't that be bad for the store because it could mean that any one and the employees could steal whatever they wanted?" Margaret asked and then John and looked at her and said "Well no becuase they know what damage she could do and so everyone is scared of her. And if everyone is scared of her then they cannot steal from her business." while Sarah was starting to plate their food. "Wow, princess. I didn't know that you could cook so well." John said while Margaret was taking pictures of the food as Sarah got her own food. "I don't cook alot." Sarah said while she grabbed her food and started to head towards the sun room to watch the world outside. "She is one strange yet interesting child. This could be some powers she hasn't discovered yet. Maybe we can make her stronger." John whispered while not letting anyone know that he was actually a scientist. He liked making experiments when no one was around because he liked the isolation when he was working with chemicals. John knew that some people were incapable of working with complex chemical experiments but he knew that Sarah was different and he wanted to figure out what the difference was. But he didn't want Margaret nor Sarah to figure out the work he would do when he was alone, but he needed Sarah to conduct his experiments on. John waited till Sarah was asleep to do some of his experiments on her and so he could lock her bedroom door so that no one could save Sarah or so that she could not leave. One night, John walked in Sarah's room and locked her door as Sarah was deep asleep and then he grabbed a needle and slipped it into her arm to relax her muscles more so that she couldn't feel a thing. After he pulled up a chair to Sarah's bed, John went into his bag and grabbed a scalpel and carefully cut two lines in her back where her shoulders made little bumps in the skin. John quickly grabbed a needle filled with a serum that will grow wings on Sarah's back and have the bones of the wings for on the end of her shoulder bones. Before it became midnight, John put everything away top where they were and then unlocked Sarah's bedroom door and quietly sneaked out of the house and went to his house. Margaret knew that she couldn't go into Sarah's room but since Sarah was sleeping in late she wanted to check up on her, even if it meant to betray her daughter. But she didnt want to upset Sarah and so she stayed out of her room, even if she had terrible weird suspicions. "Hey, you OK?" John asked Margaret while noticing that Margaret would not stop staring at Sarah's bedroom door and he started to get scared that she might get suspicious of him. In his pocket, John got a needle to go into her neck to make her pass out but he didn't want it to get to that even though Margaret was getting more and more suspicious. Sarah screamed as she looked at her back in the mirror that she put up on the back of her bedroom door and then both Margaret and John ran to her and John saw that his experiment didn't go well. He say that her wings didnt come in like they should have and he knew that he had to come back to her room so that he could release her wings but make sure that she wouldn't bleed. John wrote in his notes that he needed to change up the formula for his serum. "What are you writing?" Margaret asked as she noticed John holding a pen in his hand and his head in the journal. "Just doodling a little bit, my love. Don't worry about me, honey." John said while putting his notes in the journal into his bag since he was staying over that night. Margaret liked that he loved to doodle and draw because she liked that he was creative. She looked creative guys even though she wasn't creative herself, she didn't want to lose her job as a office worker becuase her boss didn't want to hire people more creative then him. But Margaret wasn't complaining becuas she needed the checks to keep her and Sarah from living on the street and she did anything she could to impress her boss. Sometimes Margaret would also give up her bedroom to her boss whenever his lover kick him out of their house. "You OK, John?" Sarah asked when John kept writing in his journal and then he quickly put his journal away. "Oh yeah. Just minding my business." John said as he looked at her trying to figure out how he failed. "Well, if you have any questions come to me. Don't be scared." Sarah said before turning and then John looked how the wings were trying to grow but can't get out of the skin putting Sarah through pain. "I know what I did wrong." John said to himself as he figured out that he closed the skin instead of letting the wings grow outside. "Looks like I'm taking another trip." John said as he wrote in his notes to remind himself that he needed to keep the holes open so that the wings could grow properly. He felt like if he could grow wings on her then he can trick everyone else to grow wings on themselves without having to do it himself. But he didn't know if everyone was gonna want to volunteer to drink his serum and he knew what he could do. He could make them flavorful so that people can talk about it and make other people want it but he had to do new experiments. And he knew the two guinea pigs that would be perfect, his girlfriend and her little girl. He knew that Margaret would do what he asked and she would also make Sarah do what John politely asked her to do. "No I'll just conduct my experiments on her mother and keep using her for experiments while she sleeps." John said to himself while he used the bathroom not knowing that Margaret's boss was needing a place to crash again. John walked out and went to see her boss at the door and then said "Who are you and what are you doing here?" since he had never met her boss. "My name is Derrick and I need to come in." He said trying to get in Margaret's house and getting upset at John for not letting him in her house. "John, this is my boss. He gets the master bedroom." Margaret said pushing John to the side letting her boss in. "I'm sorry, sir. He's new to how I act with u." Margaret said bowing as Derrick walked in putting his stuff in the master bedroom after Margaret moved both her and John's stuff into the guest bedroom. "I don't think I ever approved of this." John whispered in Margaret's ear angering her and then Derrick looked at him before saying "You have no say this is my house I'm letting her and her daughter live in it. I don't appreciate you telling her what to do when clearly she is the only one working." with a smirk on his face. "I am Margaret's boyfriend and I should have a say in who she has in her home. No matter if they are her boss her not." John said while blowing his lid and ultimately screwing up Margaret's chances of getting a better job. "OK then." Derrick said and then he turned to Margaret and smiled and said "Your fired. I shall expect you out of this house when I leave." surprisingly John and making Margaret cry for all the hard work she had done has been flushed down the drain. "You screwed up." Sarah said to John and then she went to her mom and tried her best to make her mom feel better. "I didn't screw up. I stood my ground." John said to himself and then tried to go into the room but then got faced with a closed and locked room. "Sweetie, you accidentally closed and locked the door." John said while trying to stay positive even though Derrick could see her was getting pissed. "Leave her alone. If you weren't here and weren't being a dick, she wouldn't be upset." Derrick said before punching John to the ground and then he made sure that John didn't return. "Where did he go? Did he leave early?" Sarah asked Derrick as he stood in the doorway watching the cab taking John away. "Yup and he isn't coming back. Margaret! I need to talk to you." Derrick said as he made his way to her and then Sarah let him go past her. "Y-Yes sir? I'll leave now." Margaret said as tears kept going down here face. "Don't worry about leaving. This house is now yours. Don't let any man who claims that they love you to tell you what to do." Derrick said standing her up and wiping her tears away. "Really? Oh my goodness. Thank you" Margaret said excitedly and then he held your hands. "I knew that you were being bullied and so I had to wait to see it for myself." Derrick explained as he ordered food for the three of them. "Yeah I know but why wait?" Sarah asked knowing that Derrick liked her and would answer any question she asked. "Because I needed to wait till I was forced to crash here or I would have been seen as suspicious." Derrick said after Margaret went to get something to drink to replace her tears that she lost. "Ohh. You know mom wouldn't ever find you suspicious." Sarah said as he looked at her trying not to stare at her. "Yeah but oh well." Derrick said while leaving the room and then he found John's experiments and his notes. "Wow." Derrick said to himself as he decided to take on John's experiments himself. He never seen anything so descriptive as the notes be was looking at but the notes that he was looking through. What Derrick was looking at felt like real power to him and he knew that he had to be careful or the power he was wanting could take over and make him sloppy with his new experiments. "I need to keep myself behave and I should be able to pull it off." Derrick said to himself as he started to think up people to do these experiments but when he came upon the new and weird experiment that John was already while planning on performing on Sarah. "Wow, what a sick individual. I like it." Derrick said while smiling a mischievous smile and he knew that with all of this knowledge and information then he can make anyone do what he want them to do. He looked at the movie collection he brought with him and then he saw that he had the movie called house of two hundred corpses and he knew that he wanted to make a fish boy that he always seen in the movie. But he wanted to improve the way they did it because he wanted to see the person he in pain whenever they moved their bottom half of their body. So that night he grabbed John's old experiment equipment and sneaked it to his room while Margaret was setting up the table while Sarah watched for the delivery boy. "Too bad John will miss this. He recently loved to stay near me while still only paying attention to my mom." Sarah said as Derrick went and stood beside her and watched outside. "So where did you make him go, anyway? I know that you sent him away and I won't tell." Sarah asked Derrick as Derrick watched the trees dance in the wind and then he looked at her and said "I had my men go and move him to a new state and put him on the no fly list after they get back." as Sarah smiled. "I think I just made a friend. And it isn't my mom." Sarah said before Derrick nodded making her sure that he agreed with her. Derrick knew that her wings were growing and the pain was getting more and more unbearable. "Hey I have a idea." Derrick said as he grabbed her hand and took her to his room. "Ok? I'm not into having sex with you." Sarah said trying to decide what he's planning on doing with her. "First of all, ouch. Kick me in the balls why don't you? And second I wasn't talking about sex. Now just fall asleep and let me do my work." Derrick said putting a man on Sarah's face to make her fall asleep and then he cut the spots and watched as Sarah's beautiful wings pop out. He smiled as he saw her beautiful black wings pop out and get bigger every minute it's out of her back. He took the mask off keeping her asleep and then walked to her room and carefully layed her on her bed and left her so she can sleep peacefully. "Hey, do you know where Sarah went? Dinner is almost here." Margaret said as she placed the silverware next to their plates. "She was a little sleepy and so she went to take a nap." Derrick said knowing that he was lying to the worker that would never lie or give him an excuse. But he didn't want Margaret to know what he was doing to get child and he didn't want to lose her trust since whenever she was gone and when he was living with them, Derrick was always trusted to watch Sarah and to keep her out of trouble. Even though Derrick was more of a trouble maker then Sarah was and both Sarah and Derrick knew that. Sarah would even take the blame for him, though it would cause Margaret to ground her for thinking that Sarah actually did it and try to blame Derrick even if Sarah didn't say anything about Derrick. Sarah didn't like to see him in trouble and tried her best to help him also stay out of trouble even if it meant to get herself in trouble. No one could understand why she tried her hardest to keep her mom's boss out of trouble but yet Sarah and Derrick were the same age. "I have a question for you." Sarah said to Derrick while she watched the sky. "What's up?" Derrick said while sitting next to her. "How can you be the same age as me but yet be a trillionare?" Sarah asked while looking at him. "Well my great great great grandfather founded the town a while ago and I just took over some of the family businesses." Derrick explained while staring at her lips. He wanted to give her a kiss on her perfect lips but he didn't want to get slapped and so he had to wait patiently. He knew that it was going to be torture for him but he had to suffer through it and he wanted to earn his prizes. He wasn't like other rich people and he wanted to earn the stuff he gets even if some of the things he got were actually gifts. "So what do you do when your all alone?" Derrick asked while trying to get rid of the tension that was building in the room. "I clean, play video games, eat watch TV and then go to my room and take a nap." Sarah said will walking to the pantry so that she can get something to eat even though she didn't want to eat from the house. Sarah wanted to order food but she didn't have the money and she didn't want to try to use kissing as a payment in case the person didnt want to kiss her. The other thing that was a problem to her was she wasn't wanting to make another meal for both her and Derrick. "Do you want me to make something to eat?" Derrick asked knowing that Sarah was getting tired of cooking and he wanted to do anything to make her happy. "Do you have any money? Maybe you can order lunch and then I will cook dinner?" Sarah said while trying to get out of having a home cooked lunch as Derrick already started to get ready to cook. "Nice try. Now can you get me all the ripe and ready to cook veggies from the garden in the backyard. I will show you that a home cooked lunch is better then ordering food that will be bad when it gets to this house." Derrick said while sharpening his knives as Sarah went to get to the veggie while growling to herself without Derrick around. "No wonder he barely goes to work when he lives with us. He wants me to do some work because taking care of dogs while being a assassin on the weekends when my mom is asleep isn't good already. But he does control the fate of me and my mom so I won't say bad shit about him." Sarah said to herself after finishing grabbing the veggies and going to Derrick. "Here you go." Sarah said as she placed the veggies in front of him and then she went to her room to play video games as Derrick cooked both Sarah and himself the best meal they ever had. "I think that I'm done with Ourplace all together. I used to enjoy it when I had friends and family to talk to and have a good relationship with them but now I have no one and looking at Ourplace always remind me of that. I wish David would be more of a friend that he said that he wanted to be but I now know that he doesn't want me and doesn't want to talk to me ever again. I'm tired of seeing of pics of me and him together and starting to cry because of all the pain that he caused me. No one knows how I feel and no one ever wants to talk to me about how I'm feeling and I feel like suicide is the only way for me to feel better. I need to feel better but I can't ever feel better because of jackasses and a bitchy mother. Why can't I ever have happiness? Is that a bad thing to give to a person like me?" Sarah said while playing her game and wiping her tears away. She wanted to figure out a way to get back at her ex but she didnt want to put him in danger. She looked through her phone to see if she could talk to anyone that might be able to help her with her revenge. "Ahh. Haven't talked to her since when the school blew up. I heard that there was an accident and was affected by it. I wonder what happened." Sarah said as she saw Jessie's name in her contact list and then later while Derrick was in the shower and Margaret was cleaning up from dinner, Sarah had made the decision to call her. "Hey Sarah. What's up? I am so sorry I didn't get to go to your graduation. I was busy making food and I forgot. Please don't be upset." Jessie said as Sarah stayed quiet and then Sarah said "It's fine. Even though that's not why I called you. I am in need of your help and your the only person I know that can help me." as she looked behind herself and saw that she had huge black raven wings. "Ok. Even though you are being really quiet and scaring me, I will help a old student I helped when I was still a school guidance counselor." Jessie said before hanging up the phone and then Sarah took a deep breath and started to scream quietly in terror and then layed down and went to sleep thinking that it was just a silly nightmare. But to Sarah's horror the wings were still in her back but they grew bigger throughout the night and when Derrick saw them he said to himself "How can I stop them from growing but not make them reverse the growth process? I have to do this and I have to do this quickly." as he wrote the same question in his notes. He knew that he had to come up with a solution to her growing wings problem but he didn't knew what he could do in time. He also that even if he needed time to figure out what to do then he was not able to and then he called an old friend of his to help. "Hey Lawrence, I know that this seems weird because of the fight we had all those years ago. And I apologize for what I did but I need your help and if you are willing to help, then I will tell you what's going on. And if you aren't I am sorry for wasting your time, your the best friend I miss having and I want us to be friends again. Call me back when you get this and hopefully we will hang out soon." Derrick said while trying not to cry. He felt guilty for what he had done and he wanted to do something to make things right with them even though what he did was unforgivable. "Hey, I'm sorry but I couldn't help to over your conversation. But what happened so long ago that made you two stop being friends?" Sarah said while making tea for the both of them as Margaret slept in her room. "You don't want to hear the story. Its too saddening and at most really upsetting." Derrick said hoping that she would ask him to tell her the story. She looked at Derrick and said "Well, I love a good story. Please tell me." as she poured them both a cup of tea. "Ok, if you insist. It was a few years ago I met Lawrence at a orphanage since I was being sent to the same orphanage. Me and him were working there and we became very good friends. Well that summer we went to my house and I was seeing this girl." Derrick said as he held his cup and tears started to go down and then he continued "But then I found out that she was Lawrence's girlfriend. I went into a rage and I blacked out. When I can go, my best friend on his bed and the girl's body was separated from her head." while Sarah looked at him. "I am sorry to hear that." Sarah said while taking a sip and and sat next to him. "That's not all. When the cops came to us to see who did it I panicked and said that he did it. I lied and said that me and him were hanging out and the girl came in and made the both of us upset and he went into a rage and killed her and knocked me out. And since there were no technical evidence against me, Lawrence had gotten arrested. I merely got hugged and loved up by everyone because of me being his friend. I ruined his life because I knew that I was a coward and that I wouldn't be able to survive prison and now he hates me for ruining his life." Derrick said as he watched the stars glow bright in the sky. She could see in his eyes that she had regretted what he did but he didn't know what he could do to make Lawrence happy and to forgive him about what happened. She waited until Derrick could go somewhere and leave his phone so that she could sneak onto his contacts list and get his old friend's number. After Sarah got the number, Derrick stayed outside for a little while longer and then came back in while Sarah was getting ready for bed. She knew that if she didn't do anything then nothing would happen between Lawrence and Derrick and the guilt would start to eat at her. She layed in her bed and stared at the wall and waited for the ability to fall asleep but with the thought of having to help staying in her mind she could not sleep. "Why don't you forgive him?" Sarah said to herself as she looked at Lawrence's phone number wondering if she should call him or text him and ask them to meet up. "Hey, are you OK? I heard you were starting to mumble to yourself and I just wanted to make sure." Derrick said to Sarah as he walked into her room and looked around to see how she arranged her room. "Oh, yeah. I'm fine. How are you this morning? Was your sleep good? And can I make you anything?" a tired and sleepy Sarah asked while getting up and stretching after putting her phone in her pocket. "No. I'm fine. I'm actually going to make breakfast for all of us and I don't want you to miss it. So please get up and finish stretching and get cleaned up. I'm going to have a guest over and I don't want to run him off again." Derrick said while having his back to her in case Lawrence was seeing her and he didn't want to hurt Sarah. As Derrick left the room, Sarah stood up and got dressed so it it was Lawrence, though she didnt know what he looked liked. She knew that this time she actually had to be on her best behavior so that Derrick and Lawrence could try their best and make up and be good friends again. Sarah went to the door and opened it to see a man wearing a teeshirt and jeans and then she said "How can I help you, sir?" as she looked at him trying to figure out who he was. "My name is Lawrence. I'm here for Derrick and I was told that he was here." He said while brushing his golden blonde hair and then he put his brush away as he grabbed his bag. "Oh yes. Of course, please come in and make yourself at home. If you need anything, please don't hesitate to ask." Sarah said while going to the side as Lawrence walked in and left his stuff out, which meant to Sarah to grab his bags. "Oh thank you madam. You are ever so nice. Now where is the son of a bitch? I need to talk to him." Lawrence said while he walked into the living room. "Oh let me get him. Derrick! Your guest is here! Not to be mean but come out and see him." Sarah yelled into the kitchen as she pulled the bags into her room so that Lawrence could have a comfortable stay. "Hey, Lawrence. Long time no see." Derrick said while standing behind Lawrence. He looked at Derrick and smiled as the both of them hugged as tears ran down their faces. "I missed you" Lawrence said as Sarah watched them with a smile on her face as she knew that they could get along.

Chapter 2

 After an hour, Lawrence went to Sarah as she started to cook and ask "Do you have any snacks around?" as he was starting to get hungry. "Don't worry about it. I'll make dinner for you and Derrick. You just got watch TV and I will work about your dinner." Sarah said with a smile on her face as she coated a bunch of pork chops with crushed up doritos chips. Lawrence went back to Derrick and sat next to him and said "Man, your slave is nicer then your mom. How'd you get her to be that way? I need to know." while Sarah heard him and then put the pork chops in the oven and started to make mashed potatoes before sauteing mushrooms, onions and green beans together. Derrick went to Sarah and asked "Would you like some help? If you need anything just ask." as he watched her perfectly cook their food. "No I'm fine. Just leave your slave and go enjoy some time with your friend." Sarah sad with a little hurt in her voice and then Derrick noticed that what Lawrence said has hurt her but he didn't want to confront him. Even if he knew that what he wasn't doing was wrong, he still needed Sarah to be happy by any means. She didn't want to fake being happy to make Derrick happy to have his friend back. Sarah wanted him to tell Lawrence that she wasn't his slave but she kept her mouth shut and then she called both of the boys once she plated their food and then she started to clean the dishes she used for cooking their food. "OK guys. Foods done." Sarah said while going to her room so that Derrick and Lawrence could eat and so that she could order some food for herself. "Your little slave is a jerk isn't she?" Lawrence said as they started to eat making Derrick upset before saying "Ok I am sorry but I am done with having my mouth shut. Sarah is not my slave, is the most amazing roommate I have ever had. She made us this meal even though I was gonna make dinner. She volunteered to do this, you have no right to call her a slave. I bit my tongue to keep you happy because I do miss hanging out with you but I am not willing to make my roommate bullied." while looking at Lawrence. Lawrence got up and hugged him and said "Now I forgive you. I'll be right back." before letting Derrick go and going to Sarah's room and knocked on her door so that he could ask her if he could come in. Derrick looked puzzled but he listened to their conversation and he realized that he was wanting Derrick to stand up for a girl unlike he failed to do all those years ago. Lawrence didn't like it when men were cowards towards women and he tried to do his best to make men be better. No one could understand why Lawrence didnt like it that women were stronger than men but they didn't want to confront him just in case he was going to teach them a lesson. That night while Sarah was sleeping, Derrick and Lawrence were trying to plan a vacation so that Margaret would be gon for a little while but neither of them knew where she liked to go to. "We must figure this out or we wouldn't be able to work on my little project. And I need constant attention to this." Derrick said as he looked at countries that he believed that she had never been to and would've loved. Even though he forgot that he owned the airport for their town, Watrie, Derrick didn't want to be sloppy and send her to the wrong country or accidentally make her go to the next country. "So, where are we going to send her?" Lawrence asked while eating some candy that he had brought with him. "I have no idea. But I'll figure it out." Derrick said while cleaning up the need that the both of them made but while he cleaned, Lawrence looked at him with shock and surprise. He didn't know why Derrick, a teenager millionaire, would want to clean up after himself when he could use Sarah to his advantage but he didnt want to be yelled at again so he kept his mouth shut. Margaret walked into the house and then closed the door making a audible noise scaring Derrick and making him put away his laptop before she walked past him putting her bag on the dinning room table. "Who's your friend, sir?" Margaret said as she walked into the kitchen and grabbed a water bottle. "Margaret, this is Lawrence. My best friend and Lawrence this is my employee Margaret. She is a worker of one of my many offices and even though she works too hard. She is the best hard worker I have ever had." Derrick said while trying to make himself look like he needed her in his office. "Really? Cuase what I hear from other workers in your office that she is a kiss ass. She does anything she can to get on your good side so that she can get what ever she wanted." Lawrence said while having a smile on his face showing him that the both of them knew that it wasnt true and Lawrence needed Derrick to confirm it. Margaret just stood with her back to the two boys as she couldn't believe that this young kid figured out what she was trying to be and she didnt want to let Derrick know that his friend was right. "Yeah, you are funny, Lawrence. Margaret is a hard worker and she has alot of opportunity to be a kiss ass but since she never takes it then she isn't a kiss ass." Derrick said before taking a drink from a soda that he got from the kitchen. "I know I was just kidding. You know how I like to get under your skin." Lawrence said while smiling and trying not to laugh as Margaret went to her room noticing that even though that Sarah was in her room that Lawrence was gonna sleep in Sarah's room. Margaret didn't want to kick Sarah out of her room but she didn't want to kick Lawrence out of the house in case if she did it would in turn cause her to be fired for real. And she wanted to keep Derrick happy so that she could keep her job and that meant if she had to deal with whatever Derrick brought in her house. She got in her journal and wrote how she didn't like that Derrick brought an unknown guest into her house without her permission but she then wrote that she had to remember that he gave her his house which was now hers. So she still was expected to play nice with all of the guests that he brings in. As the day slowly went by, Derrick looled through his notes and tried to make a formula for a serum that will help make Sarah's wings accessible with her mind. "What are you thinking up now?" Lawrence quietly asked as he almost knew the answer to that question but he wanted to hear it from his mouth. "I am actually thinking of another experiment that we could do. But I'm trying to make a formula to a quick way to get her wings out and to retract them." Derrick said quietly so that Margaret couldn't be able to hear them. He knew that she would freak out if she found out that they were experimenting on her daughter and Margaret would also kick the both of them out. So the best way to keep her busy without sending her to a fancy vacation was a boyfriend that she would fall in love with and make each other happy. "I feel like this is like lieing and I don't want to lie to innocent men." Lawrence said and then Derrick looked at her with shock. But since Lawrence never lied in the time that they were friends, so Derrick didn't have anything to say about him. "Yeah, I know and I don't want to lie. But if we don't do this then we can't do our work if Margaret gets suspicious." Derrick said while making a good point. "Alright. Good point but I get to choose the guy." Lawrence said while smiling knowing he had the right guy for the hard working Margaret. "We still have to look through the candidates. You would think it would be fair if I did it for you." Derrick said while looking at good dating apps. "Yeah but I don't trust anyone on the dating apps. I don't understand how anyone could." Lawrence said while wiping his tears away from being hurt by people on dating apps. "Lawrence you are my best friend but remember. This isn't for you. This is for Margaret and she needs to find someone to love." Derrick said while putting her information on a dating app that claimed to be the best. "I'm gonna go and take a nap. Talk to you when I get up." Lawrence said while heading to his temporary bedroom while Derrick looked at possible love interests for Margaret. No one would ever think that Derrick would be able to find a guy for Margaret but he was going on a quest to find her right man for her. Derrick was also think about what other experiments that he could do to Sarah without her waking up but he could see that if he didn't take a break from it then Sarah would soon wake up and mess her up and a bad way. And Derrick didn't want to put Sarah into any kind of danger. But he also wanted to see her go through a little bit of pain, just for the science world. Derrick didn't want Lawrence to find out that he wanted to put Sarah through pain because he know l knew that Lawrence would leave or tell Sarah and Margaret about what he was doing. "So have we meet Mr perfect?" Lawrence said in a snarky time in his voice while walking into Derrick's room before seeing that he was asleep with his laptop next to him. "You are a knucklehead. You know that you can't push yourself like that." Lawrence said as he helped put Derrick's stuff away. Even through they were just friends, people often viewed Lawrence and Derrick as a couple.Lawrence didn't want to tell Derrick that he had a crush on Derrick because he knew that Derrick wasn't going to feel the same about him. And he knew that he had to treat him as a friend and find someone else to fall in love with though for him it was heartbreaking. Lawrence grabbed his phone and started to download dating apps again and he hoped that he would have better luck for his next date then his last one. He felt embarrassed because he had to climb out of the window of his previous date and he didn't want to climb out of the window again. "If I truly want to be happy, I gotta have Derrick as a regular friend and then find my own lover." Lawrence said to himself. But he had to do it on his own and he didn't want anyone else to find out about it because he knew that the only person that could help him was himself. He grabbed his money and started to go shopping and then he went to go in line he felt like an adult even though he didnt feel the pains that other adults felt. "Hello, handsome. Cash or Credit?" The male cashier said to Lawrence as he pulled out his wallet. "Thanks. Would you like my number too?" Lawrence said in a serious tone while trying to be joking. "Yes I would love to have your number." The cashier said as he took Lawrence's money. Lawrence smiles a little bit as he wrote down his number and have the paper to the cashier with a heart on it.Lawrence went into the house a few minutes after that and even though he just met the cashier he felt like he was in love. "So, who's the girl?" Sarah said not knowing that Lawrence was actually into guys. "I have no idea what you are talking about."Lawrence said as he went to his room, making Sarah and Derrick look at him weirdly and suspiciously and then he went into his room and waited for a response. "Hey, this is the cashier that called u handsome and genuinely wanted your number." The guy said as Lawrence smiled. "Name's Luther. What's your name, handsome man?" Luther said as Lawrence smiled while feeling his heart racing faster. "My name is Lawrence. Nice to meet you Luther." Lawrence responded as a smile stayed on his face with love and happiness that showed Sarah that he was in love. "Again who's the girl?" Sarah asked Lawrence when she noticed that he was smiling. "Close the door. I don't want Derrick to hear me." Lawrence said as his smile faded from fear of how Derrick would react. "Oh ok." Sarah said before she closed the door and then she walked and sat next to him."Im gay. I met Luther, the cashier at the local, store and I gave him my number and now I think that I'm really in love." Lawrence said while still texting Luther. "Oh my god. It so sweet but yet I don't know how to feel about it." Sarah said while trying to sound like a bully."What do you mean?" Lawrence said confused and a little hurt. "Well, I think that it's sweet. But on the other hand, is weird and disgusting to me. Why do you like other guys?" Sarah said while sitting next to him. "Because that's just how I am. All I ask for you is to respect that and not to tell Derrick please?" Lawrence said while Sarah got up, ironically, to tell Derrick that Lawrence is gay.
