Cats make the best guard dogsI was spending the summer with my mom in another state. In which I had no friends, family, or anyone except my cat who I loved. My mom showed me around the house and then showed me to around the town. She went with my step dad into a store as I stood outside trying to adjust my eyes to the blinding light when I saw a figure I recognized right away. It was a guy who I used to live by last year until my mom moved to this town.
I saw his daughter Selena who had her dirty blonde hair cut to look like a boy across the street in the back of a car. She looked at me but I looked away. "Hey Alexis," I snapped my head to the right and saw another figure that I had recognized. James, he was a guy who my mom used to be friends with but he was caught doing bad things that I choose not to mention even on a story. When my mom and step dad found out she kicked him out of their house and I never really knew what happened to him because I wasn't with her at this time.
I glared him as he looked at my outfit. A gray shirt with a batman logo right on my chest, shorts that were halfway above my knee, and black sandals. "Wanna hug? Its me James," He said with open arms and a kind smile. His normal blond hair was messy as he walked over to me. I turned the other direction and ran into the store just as my mom finished buying some chocolate milk as I asked for despite how hot it felt outside. I gulped the drink down and told my mom what happened. When my step dad got outside he said that he was no where in sight but since he knew I was scared he said we should finish the tour later and just go home. The rest of the night was slow as I listened to Untitled by Simple Plain. I sang along with the lyrics trying to forget what happened earlier. My mom had a huge bathtub so I decided to take a bath.
