Chapter One - A Bunch of Lies - As told by Ethan Bunch.
I never could have imagined my life would turn out like this. I was always a quiet kid, kept to myself and minded my own business. I never thought our family would have to suffer the trials ahead of us.
As I prepared an early morning snack, I sighed looking over at the clock, mentally asking myself why I was awake at 4am on a Sunday. The answer, like so many other mornings previously over the past few months, was something I had to choke back before my blood boiled.
As I sat down on the old uncomfortable bar stool, I prodded my waffles with the end of my fork and sighed again before throwing the fork down and pushing the plate away. "Why does she keep doing this?" I asked myself.
The person I referred to as 'She' was my sister, Lisa. My once sweet and innocent sister, who was also my best friend. Over the past few months it was as if she had changed, changed so much that it felt like I was watching a complete stranger walking in and out of our family home. I had tried talking to her before about my issues with her but she wouldn't listen, and if she wouldn't listen to me, then she sure as hell wouldn't listen to my parents.
As the hours past, I led on my bed, waiting in anticipation for Lisa to wake up. I needed to know why she was doing this to us, to me and most of all to herself.
Lisa's bedroom was very close to mine, so at the first sign of movement, I got off my bed and went to confront her. "Lisa I need to talk to you" I said, closing her bedroom door behind me. "Ever heard of knocking!" said Lisa, rubbing the sleep from her eyes, and old makeup it would seem. "Why are you acting like this?!" I blurted out, unable to control the anger and frustration building up inside me. "Excuse me?!" Said Lisa, taken aback. "Why are you creeping in at gone 3am every morning?! Why have you got bruises all over your body Lisa?! Have you become some kind of whore?!!".
As I watched Lisa's expression turn to complete rage I caught it as a mental image. Flashes of smiles and laughter that my sister once used to spread filled my mind and my heart sank. Was I losing her forever?
"You know what Ethan...you can piss off! You have no say over what I do, you are nothing to me, NOTHING!" . As I took in what she said I felt a bead of sweat fall from my temple. "Well you are nothing to me anymore Lisa, you are not my sister!". I stormed out of the room slamming the door behind me. I needed to get out of this house before I ended up punching something or someone.
As I sat reading the pages of my favorite book, I found it hard to concentrate. Slamming the book shut I sighed heavily, taking in the goings on around me. I saw Morgana Wolff and her husband Thornton walking hand in hand, deep in conversation. I looked to the left of me and noticed little Mortimer Goth having a picnic with his odd-looking mother. A smile crept on my face, all these families in this town seemed so perfect and content. Why couldn't we have that. As I carried on looking around the beautiful park, I noticed a flash of pink out of the corner of my eye and soon realized who it was.
I stood up quickly, eager to walk away before a public row began, but it was too late, Lisa was quickly heading in my direction. "Ethan!" she said softly as she approached me. "Please Ethan, talk to me". I looked at her, just wanting to protect her and shake some sense into her all at the same time. But I wasn't willing to have another argument. Not here nor now.
"Ethan, please. Can we stop all this? You are my brother and I love you. I'm OK honestly, you don't have to worry about me. I can look after myself." As I looked into my sisters eyes I could see she hated arguing as much as I did. I grabbed her into a hug, holding her tight. "OK sis, but if you need anything then I'll be here for you". "Thanks Eth' ".
Little did my sister really know this wouldn't be the end of my prying. I wouldn't let this lie, whatever was causing this would end soon, one way or another, and I will find out tonight when I follow her to wherever it is she goes...

Chapter Two - Denial - As told by Morgana Wolff.
I stared at my husband, barely taking in a word he was saying. All he was on about was himself...AGAIN. "And I said to Mark, you can't tell the supervisor to pick the higher scheme, it would never work..." . Drone, drone, drone...he went on and on and on.
I merely nodded and hummed a response to everything he was saying, I couldn't quite get something else off my mind, something far more important then Thornton's work life with his cassanova pals. I looked out to the beach, just below our balcony. I loved this house and its closeness to the sea, it was what I had always dreamt of as a little girl and yet, something was missing.
"So Morg' , what do you think?". I snapped out of my thoughts in a flash and looked at my husbands excited expression. "I'm sorry honey, can you repeat that last bit again". Thornton's smile wavered as his eyebrows rose in frustration. "Do you ever listen?! Anyway, we are moving to Paris, I have been promoted!" . My eyes widened as did my mouth in complete shock. "Wha...What?!". "Morgana please, will you bloody listen to me properly for once?! I said..." , "I know what you said Thornton, I just can't quite believe it!". Thornton glared at me, I knew what was coming.
"Let me guess, you don't wanna go" said Thornton, mocking me in the process. "Well, did you not think to ask me?!" I said softly to him, trying not to make him angry. If there is one thing you should know about Mr Thornton Wolff, its not to make him mad. But it was too late, sweat beads began to roll from his forehead. I knew I was in for a yelling now.
"Well fine!! Act the way you are and throw your toys out of the pram Morgana! It doesn't make the slightest bit of difference to me, because you are coming whether you like it or not and that is final!!". I had taken a step back halfway through this sentence...just in case it happened again. I'll never forget that night, not so long ago, and I couldn't in any way risk it at the moment. "Thornton, please stop yelling at me. You have to see it from my side too, all my friends and family are he..." , "I DON'T CARE MORGANA!!". He wouldn't listen, and with that he stormed off towards the kitchen. A few moments later I heard a bottle cap being ripped from the neck of his favorite beer. Great.
I left it ten minutes before slowly making my way into our house. I could see he had ventured upstairs to watch the football game. Tiredness crept over me, and a flush of warmth. I made my way over to the sofa and sat down. I couldn't believe Thornton could even let the thought of moving into his mind. Everything we both love is around here, our parents, other family and friends. But as always his job comes first. It was at this point I decided, I had to tell him something that would change his mind on moving...or at least I hoped it would.
After talking him round to a stroll in the park, we made our way. Hand in hand I took in everything that was going on, remembering coming here as a little girl. Tears filled my eyes, and I let go of Thornton's hand softly.
"Thornton. I must speak to you" I begun, looking at the back of his head as he carried on walking. "I'm not going to get into an argument publicly Morgana" he sneered, clearly thinking about his reputation. "That is exactly why I asked you to come here, so we could talk and not scream". He turned to look at me, amusement filled his expression, making me feel extremely annoyed.
I rubbed the back of my neck akwardly and stumbled over my words. "I, well I, I'm..." I looked down at my stomach, it was noticeably larger then normal. When I looked back up at Thornton I realized straight away he had grasped the idea of what I was about to say. His face had turned pale.
"DON'T ..... Don't even say another word Morgana" began Thornton. I looked away, even knowing to expect this reaction I still couldn't hide the sadness and anger that filled my heart. I looked back up at him, his face was now red. "You did this on purpose, you witch!!" , "Thornton please, keep your voice down..." I whispered, starting to feel sick. "Well, I am going home now to book an appointment for the clinic and I shall insist you go in tomorrow morning! Enough of this foolishness Morgana, and you will start packing tonight" .
Everything around me seemed to turn black, as if it were just me and this angry man in our own little world. I felt rage and sadness which I could no longer contain. Tears poured from my eyes and I let out a cry. "Pull yourself together woman, for christ sake!" spat Thornton, edging closer. I pushed him away, making him stumble over his own feet. "Get away from me, you PIG!!" I screamed, running off as far away as my aching legs could carry me. Where I was going I didn't know, but one thing was for sure, I was not getting rid of my baby and I was not moving to Paris...now to see what Thornton is going to react like to this little bombshell.

:!: This chapter had a couple of minor swear words in it, so read no further if easily offended. :!:
Chapter Three - A Bach' of Trouble - As told by Jocasta Bachelor.
I have been living in Sunset Valley since the day I was born. I had such vivid memories of past times with family and friends. You could say I have had a good life, simple but good. I was brought up in a rich family and always had the finer things in life, but I never in any way took advantage of this, I appreciated every little good thing that came my way...and I still do. That includes my little family whom I live for and would die for, that was until lately...
My youngest child Bella, she is a very good little girl. She has a very sweet disposition and is always there to help others. Without blowing my own trumpet, I really do see a lot of me in her. I know she is going to do my proud in the future years.
And these are the two main men in my life. My son Michael and my husband Simis. Michael has almost finished school now and is lined up to go to one of the best colleges this side of the country. He is looking into studying Politics, something his father is not very happy about.
Simis. What is there to say about Simis Bachelor? Well when we first met I was a young and shy 18 year old girl. He would take me on romantic meals and would always bring a single red rose with him to give to me. This was the Simis I had fallen in love with, and for years it was the most amazing relationship of our time. That was 10 years ago.
As I tended to my garden, I reminisced of old times. "OW!" I shouted out loudly, looking down at the culprit. A thorn was stuck in my finger, something I was very use to by now! I sighed as I made my way back into the house and into the downstairs bathroom.
After removing the thorn from my finger I began running the cold tap over my wound. The tranquil silence around the house was abruptly diminished by the sound of my husbands voice singing loudly. Drunk, again.
I looked over at the bathroom door as the noise grew closer. As it swung open, I was greeted with the sight of my very intoxicated husband stumbling through. "Ooooh how I love you Jocasta!" he slurred the last verse of his made up anthem. My eyebrows rose as I took in his shabby appearance.
"So baby, what's for dinner?!" he said, grabbing my head and giving me a sloppy kiss. I was taken aback by the strong smelling beer on his breath. "Simis, NO!" I yelled, pushing him away from me. He looked at me, clearly stunned. "Oh god, you ain't gonna start some shit with me are you woman?" he said, smiling slightly. He always had the vocabulary of a spiteful teenager when he was drunk. "No Simis, I won't because Bella is here and she has had enough of seeing this family slowly fall apart!". Simis let out a blurt of laughter. "Yeah, ok then LOVE". I could see he was cruising for some kind of argument.
"Daddy?" a small voice came from the bathroom entrance. I felt the blood rush too my face, I didn't want Bella to see her father like this. "If it isn't my little angel!" spat Simis as he turned to face Bella. "Simis, can you please just go have a nap?" I asked softly, trying to get Simis away from our daughter before he upset her.
Simis ignored me, patting Bella firmly on the head. "D'ya know what sweety? Don't ever get married, you get so much shit it is unreal!". "SIMIS!" I yelled, not being able to restrain my feelings any longer. I heard Bella let out a whimper, then saw tears stream down her face. "Oh grow up Bella, what are you now, like 10 years old? I can see you will get far in life, NOT!". Simis had gone too far this time. I grabbed Bella's arm, pulling her towards me. "Get out Simis, GET OUT NOW!" . Simis burst into laughter, spitting over my face. "With pleasure fatty!" he sneered. If Bella weren't in the room, I think I would have punched him there and then, and I am not a violent person.
Simis grunted as he pushed passed us, making his way to the front door. "AND GOOD RIDDANCE!" he shouted through the house, stumbling onto the patio.
It looked like this could be the end of us. Our little and quaint family as I knew it. Things had never got this bad before, and I didn't see a good future...

Chapter Four - Dishonor - As told by Jamie Jolina.
I turned the light on and entered the cold kitchen. Another long night and day at work had meant no heating to warm my usually cosy home. I looked down at my work scrubs, noticing fresh stains of medical liquid splattered over my left breast. I sighed heavily, thinking of the spillage when tripping with vials of medicine on the way to the Hospital Labs. I felt more clumsy these days then a true professional.
I shuffled over to the fridge, taking out leftover salad from the previous day. The lettuce had gone slightly brown but I was too tired to prepare some fresh dinner.
As I was just about to take the first bite of the withered leaves, I heard footsteps from outside the front of my house, distinctively walking up the path that lead to the front porch. I wondered who this could be at 10'oclock at night!
As I opened the front door, I immediately realized it was Hank, my best friends fiancÚ. "Hank, what a lovely surprise" I said, looking around for my friend Pauline too, expecting her to not be far behind him. I think he noticed my curiosity as to her whereabouts as he smiled and said "It's just me Jamie".
"What can I do for you Hank?" I asked, trying not to sound rude. Hank looked into my eyes, I saw a hint of sadness shimmer in them. Oh no, I thought, please don't say He and Pauline had fallen out and he wanted to console in me. I wouldn't know what to say to my best friends other half without putting her down in the process!
"Jamie, I...I can't got through with the wedding" he blurted out, barely able to control himself. I held back a gasp and looked to the floor awkwardly. "Hank, I don't know what to say. Is there any reasons for your feelings?". It sounded like a god awful way of approaching this but I seriously did not know what to say to him. I never did. Things were always rather awkward between us, as if there were a tension there. "Well, I think I am in love with someone else Jamie". My cheeks flushed red as I felt him move closer to me.
"Urm, Umm" I slurred, taking in the smell of his aftershave. He was that close to me now I could feel his warm breath on my cheek, I shivered as the hairs on the back of my neck stood on end.
Hank drew closer to me, our lips almost touching. "Is it not obvious who I like, Jamie?" he said, before I felt his soft lips meet my own. Even though it only lasted a couple of seconds, I felt the world around me spin...I guess the feeling had always been mutual with Hank, I just never wanted to admit it...but this couldn't happen, not now. "NO!!" I yelled, sharply pulling away. "Wha...What the hell is wrong?!" asked Hank, clearly shocked by my outburst.
"Hank, no. We can't...Pauline...We just can't!!". Hank didn't take to kindly to my rejection. "You know what, fine Jamie! I come here, wearing my heart on my sleeve and you don't even care!" , "Hank please just go" I whimpered, thinking of my best friend. "With pleasure!" he fumed, quickly turning on his heal.
I watched as Hank disappeared into the darkness, feeling empty and hurt. What on earth had just happened?! It was like something out of a romance novel, and not the good kind!
I walked back into my home, spotting the unappetizing salad on the table, untouched. I didn't want it now, my stomach was hurting with nerves and emotion. What was I going to do? Should I tell Pauline about Hank? Or should I talk to Hank about this tomorrow? I would have to sleep on it...although I think deep down it was obvious sleep would be out of the question tonight.

Chapter Five - The Loss - As told by Gunther Goth.
I stared into my beautiful wife's eyes, taking in the mesmerizing color of her pupils. "Life is just perfect my darling" I said softly, stroking her hair.
"I know, Gunther, I couldn't be happier" replied Cornelia, taking my hand and laying a kiss onto it. We had always been a content family, and it wasn't just down to wealth. Every single member of my ancestors had been truly loyal to one another for generations, sharing their love and building dreams. We were no different to them.
"Everything is on the up at work, I may be moving on to bigger and better things" I told Cornelia, referring to a new job offer on the politic side of things, something I had long wished for. Before I managed to tell her about the change, we both jumped slightly upon hearing the kitchen door open. "Mortimer honey" smiled Cornelia at our son, our only child. He was indeed our pride and joy and nothing would ever change that.
Noticing the time, Cornelia ushered Mortimer to bed before giving him a hug goodnight. "Night mummy, night father" he said before leaving the room. We didn't hesitate to follow his lead not long after...tomorrow was a big day for me and I needed to rest up.
It must have been about 3am when I awoke with a shudder. The bedroom was ice cold, and the air was eerie. Had I left the window open? But it was the middle of summer!
Getting out of bed I rubbed my eyes, grunting as I stood up. As I began to walk over to the window my breath was taken away by the sight, not 3 meters in front of me.
There was no mistaking the transparent figure before me was some kind of form of my late mother. I stood frozen to the spot as a soft sound of her humming hit my ears. It was the tune of a lullaby she would once sing to me as a young boy. "Mo...mother?" I whispered, barely making a sound at all.
She stopped humming almost instantly, there was a pause of silence. "Come child, sit" she said, meaning the chair next to her. I hesitated before slowly moving towards her, a feeling of terror and curiosity overcoming me at the same time. "What is happening?" I stammered, not being able to take my eyes off of her. "Child, I have been sent here to give you a warning. I come on bad tidings". Her eyes didn't leave the book she was reading, I noticed it was her favorite poetry book, the book that was in the downstairs bookcase last I saw.
"You must listen closely now Gunther, for what I say may only be heard once". I stared at my mothers face, expressionless apart from her eyes moving along the pages of the book. "There are demonic entities coming. You will lose someone very soon". I looked at her, unable to take it what she meant. At that moment, terrifying creeks filled the house. "What do you mean mother?!" I almost yelled, looking around the room as the the sound grew closer.
"I cannot say anymore, it is too late. They are coming." My mother said this as she stood up, and looking straight ahead of her, floated from the room. "No, Wait!" I shouted in utter panic but before I could do anything there was a flash of light and all was back to normal.
Panting with fear, I looked around me. There were no sounds and the air began to warm up again. What had just happened? Was I dreaming? Sleepwalking? Before getting back into bed I splashed myself with some water in the bathroom, glancing at myself in the mirror. I smiled, "Gunther, you really need some time off work" I muttered to myself. Quite clearly all this strain was taking effect on me.
The next day at work dragged, but I made sure to book a couple of weeks off. I had my family to look after and if I were to begin having hallucinations like that last night then I would be no help to anyone.
As I drove up the drive to our home, I noticed at once that all the curtains were drawn. "What on earth" I said, jumping out of the car and hastedly making my way into the kitchen.
As I entered the kitchen, the familiar cold feeling hit me in the face. I jumped as I spotted Cornelia stood facing me, a horrified expression on her face and a stiff body. "Darling?" I said, walking up to her. She didn't move.
As I tried to grab her arm, high pitch screams filled my ears. I threw my hands to my ears in pain, I had never heard anything like it. Just as fast as they had begun, they stopped. I quickly looked up at my wife, her eyes were now closed, and her body wavered. I wasn't on time to grab her when she suddenly fell to the ground and a god awful sound of her head hitting the hard floor made a cold sweat hit my body. I checked her while pulling my mobile from my pocket, she was barely breathing.
It didn't take long for an ambulance to arrive. I held her hand as we traveled to the hospital, listening to the beeps of the monitoring machine. I was so overcome with shock as I played back everything that had happened in the past 24 hours. Was it not a dream last night? Either way, I couldn't let this happen again.
Little did I know that our son Mortimer was not at school. Little did I know he never even showed up today. I was to find out that not only was my wife in a coma, but my son had gone missing into the depths of the graveyard...
19th Feb 2010, 08:28 PM
Ooo spooky, that was a good one! Nothing scarier than ghosts and Mortimer Goth as a child (he reminds me of Damien). Really want to know what is coming next.
20th Feb 2010, 01:25 AM
love the update, but Gunther looks funny with such hair XD No offence.
20th Feb 2010, 03:39 PM

Chapter Six - Secrecy - As told by Hank Goddard.
Beads of sweat dripped from my forehead as I entered the hallway. I'd just been for my nightly jog, and was eager to sit down after a hectic day at the station. I threw down my towel as I was about to enter the kitchen but paused, seeing my fiancÚ shuffling through some draws nervously.
I watched as her fingers flicked through some paperwork, she panted softly. She must have felt my presence as she swung around, shocked. "Hank!" she said, pushing the draw back in with her butt. She walked over to me, "Nice jog?" she said as she put her arms around me and pulled me into an embrace.
"Yes hon, but I am dripping in sweat" I said, softly pulling away from her. She awkwardly ruffled her ponytail as I made my way over to the kitchen basin. "How was your day?" I forced myself to ask, not really caring what her answer would be. It was always about her hairdresser appointment or what style she had her nails done.
"It was ok. Same old" she replied. Bit of a shock I didn't get the beauty makeover low-down. "Good" I said, washing my hands off. "So honey, you thought anymore about what flowers you want?" asked Pauline, walking over to me. It took a while to register that she was on about our wedding day.
"Err, you know hon, I'm real tired. I think we should talk about this another time. I'm gonna head up for a nap". She was always asking pointless questions about this over-the-top day ahead of us. I felt less and less interested these days, something else was playing on my mind, or rather someone.
"Oh, ok sweetie. We'll sit down and discuss it tomorrow" she said, pecking my cheek with her lipglossed lips. "Can't wait" I replied, trying my best to fake a grin. I made my way upstairs and led on our bed, deep in thought. My mind ran over what had happened the other night, at Jamie's house. Did she like me? Did she think I was mad coming onto her like that? I couldn't get my mind off of Jamie Jolina.
As I felt a lump hit my throat, I heard a muffled voice coming from outside, the voice of Pauline. What on earth was she doing outside? I got up off the bed, feeling my worked-out muscles tremor slightly and walked over to the window.
It appeared Pauline had just got off the phone to someone, she once again ruffled her hair while looking around cautiously. When I saw her turn her head towards the house I ducked down, not wanting her to see me. What on earth was she up to, acting all shifty like this? I slowly pulled myself up again, and saw Pauline wander off down the road and get into a taxi. I would care where she was going if it weren't for my first thought of thinking the coast was clear to try and ring Jamie.
"Hi, this is Jamie. Sorry I can't answer your call at the moment, please leave me a message and I will get back to you". Jamie's voice made a shiver go up my spine. This was the third time I tried ringing her in the past few days. Was she just avoiding all calls? Maybe she had changed her number.
I thought for a moment as I put my phone back into my trouser pocket. I thought about what would happen if I went over there again and confronted her. I couldn't go on like this, I couldn't get the girl off my mind, and I sure as hell couldn't carry on living a lie and bringing Pauline down with me. My mind was made up, I had to go and see her tonight, now.
I ran downstairs and into the kitchen, trying to find my keys in one of the cabinet draws. As I shuffled through everything I stopped, shocked to find at what I saw.
So this explained Pauline's odd mood. This was unforgivable. I had to find Pauline before she made a stupid, disgusting mistake...

*Argh I forget to get a Title Picture - Shall get it next time I play!*
:!: There are a few swear words in this one, and reference to drugs. :!:
Chapter Seven - Caught Out - As told by Lisa Bunch.
I stared into the mirror, smudging in the last bit of foundation onto my chin. It hadn't taken me long to do my makeup, it never did, I don't really mind how it looks because I know by the end of the night it will be smudged everywhere anyway.
As I continued to do my makeup, I felt a presence behind me and looked into the mirror to see my brothers reflection. Oh here we go, 21 questions heading my way! "So, going anywhere nice tonight?" he asked, a slight tone of force in his voice. He obviously wasn't staying true to his word when it came to letting things lie. "Oh, just out with some friends" I replied, turning to face him. "What, dressed like that?" said Ethan, raising an eyebrow at me.
"Oh Ethan don't be such a spoil sport. I will dress for my age, I am not a child anymore and I am neither an oldie!". Ethan looked at me, still not convinced. "I'm just trying to look out for my little Sis' Lisa". I looked back at him. A simple hug for such a simple boy would sort this.
"Stop worrying! Look, I'll leave my phone on so if I get into any trouble, I'll ring you straight away". "Ok Lisa, well, have a good night". Ethan was acting awfully shifty, like he was hiding something from me. I looked at the pink clock hanging on my wall, realizing there was time to worry about Ethan later on. I had to be somewhere.
Ten minutes after leaving the house and I was at the planned meeting place. It wasn't long before Parker came from around the corner, grinning from ear to ear at me. It was time to get off of our faces! "I got the good stuff this time Lis' , none of that crap like before" said Parker as he wrapped his arm around me, showing me the cocaine with his free hand. I smiled before we shared a passionate kiss.
Before we were able to commence in our almost-nightly drug binge, flashes of blue and red hit our faces and a loud voice boomed "Oi you kids, what are you doing?!". The police.
Parker grabbed my arm, "RUN!" he shouted, pulling me off through the near by field. But it was too late, the policeman chasing had got a firm grip on Parkers jacket. After some fuss and swearing, we admitted defeat before being put into the back of the police car. Panic rushed over me, hoping to god the policeman didn't decide to search Parker. "Right kids party over, its home time" he said, driving towards my house.
Even though it was only a ten minute car ride, it seemed to take forever. What on earth would my father say? It was only yesterday he had told me 'No more trouble Lisa' , and I had never been caught by the police before. Oh my god, what was he going to do...and seeing Parker with me?? He hates Parker!
As we pulled up to the front of the house, I saw my father walking down the porch carrying a black bag full of rubbish. How very inconvenient.
"Lisa?" I heard my fathers faint voice through the car window. "What the..." his face had turned from confusion to rage. I was in for it. The policeman took my father aside for a couple of minutes before giving Parker and I a lecture, then driving off down the road. "Lisa Bunch, get here NOW!" shouted my father. He was not a man to mess with when he was angry.
"Daddy..." I begun, but he cut me off. "Who the HELL do you think you are?! Do you know what you are doing to this family? Do you think you are setting a good example for your little sister? Well, DO YOU?!" , before I could answer he continued..."And with Parker!! This scum?! Lisa GET IN THE HOUSE NOW!" I looked at Parker with a worried expression on my face, slowly making my way to the front door. If Parker didn't leave now, he was gonna be in for it too.
"Get out of my sight you little turd!" spat my father, pushing Parker. "Yo piss off old man, you quite clearly ain't getting any from Lisa's mum, or any of the other bitches you have on the side!" . Oh no. I heard a cracking sound followed by Parker yelling in pain, I think my father just broke his nose. "Daddy stop!" I screamed at my father, but he ignored me. "Now get outta here, punk!" he shouted at Parker, "And don't you ever go near my daughter again!". As I watched Parker run off into the distance, a tear rolled down my face. I slowly walked into the house and into the kitchen, where I found Ethan glaring at me.
"Ethan please, don't start" I spluttered through my crying. "You stupid little cow!" said Ethan, marching up to me. He looked real mad, in fact I don't think I had ever seen him look like that before in my life. "Are you completely mad?! Parker?! What the hell are you doing involving yourself with him?!" he yelled down at me, beginning to get into my face now. "Ethan back the f*** off!" I said, now glaring at him. "I saw you Lisa! I saw you with that coke!". As his words hit my ears, I felt my heart fall into the pits of my stomach.
"Ethan, I..." I stuttered, crying even harder now. "So, this was the big secret was it? That my sister is a crack whore?!". As his words hit me, I felt rage boil up inside.."JUST F*** off you stupid little goody-goody!!" with that, I punched him square in the face. He stumbled back in shock, grasping at the kitchen side to stop him falling to the ground. "You stupid bitch!" he screamed at me, and then I felt his arms wrap around my body as he dived on me.
As I felt his weight pull me to the floor, I screamed out in pain and anger. I pulled at his hair and scratched his face while he tried holding me down. Swear words were exchanged as we fought, I felt a blow to my stomach as Ethan grew more and more angry.
"STOP IT!" I heard a voice come from the kitchen entrance. Our little sister stood watching us, making Ethan jump off of me when he realized who it was. "You know what Lisa, you can die for all I care. I've had it with you. As long as you are living under this roof, I'm not. I'm leaving". Ethan ran upstairs as I tried to pull myself up, pulling my dress back into place and sweeping my messy hair out of my eyes. My little sister stood staring at me, tears filling her eyes. I watched as she ran out of the room, now crying loudly. What had I become? I wiped sweat from my head, shaking in the process. I couldn't go on like this, that was for sure...

Sorry guys but there appears to be a problem with Chapter Five, it has randomly disappeared and been replaced with a post not even written by me - very odd indeed. I've PM'd someone about it though, I hope Chapter Five hasn't been completely wiped off :( .

Chapter Eight - A Forced Decision - As told by Thornton Wolff.
I chewed on some disgusting cereal that Morgana had bought, despising the thought of every little impact that woman had made on my life. She had been nothing but a drag on me near enough from the offset and I was glad to finally be rid of her, she was far to emotional for my liking.
It had been another stressful day at work, I did the usual rounds of taking interviews for younger men to replace me in my crappy job, while I was going on to better things, leaving this shit hole behind. After eating that bowel of vileness, I went upstairs to have a shower and get dressed into something a bit more me. Upon putting that final bit of gel in my hair, the doorbell rang loudly around the house.
Looking through the glass doors, I saw my close friend Jamie peering through the glass. She smiled at me as I drew closer. "Hey Thorn, just though I'd drop by to see how you were doing" she said as I opened the door and stepped outside. "I'm fine" I replied, feeling somewhat distract by Jamie's beauty. Yes, we were best friends but that didn't stop me loving this woman all these years. I did try to take my advances further with her a few years back but she rejected me and we have remained only friends ever since. I stood out of the way to let Jamie inside my home.
As I pressed different buttons on the coffee making machine, I realized that Morgana usually made the hot drinks in this place and I had absolutely no idea how to work the blasted contraption. "Shit!" I yelled out in anger when hot cappuccino poured all over my hand. "Everything ok??" giggled Jamie from across the room. "Yes, it's fine!" I spat back. "You and your temper Thornton, it is going to get you into a lot of trouble one day!". Jamie was now sat down at the table, waiting for me to sit down with her.
"So, I hear you and Morgana broke up? Are you ok?" . I think the sarcastic smile that crept over my face gave away my feelings before actually having to say them. "Why wouldn't I be? In fact, it is delightful to be single once more. I can have any woman I want with no strings attached, I shall be living the dream!". Jamie smurked at me, her eyes told me she disapproved, but she also seemed amused. "If you say so Thorn" she finally replied, before we went on to talk about other things and catch up on the last few weeks.
Jamie left about 2 hours later, triggering my temptation for a bottle of beer. Just as I stood up, my mobile vibrated in my jacket pocket.
It was work. What could they possibly want on a Friday evening? "Hey Thor, it's Chris. We need to talk". I was astonished by the next ten minutes of the conversation. Astonished, and felt a little sick.
Being told I couldn't have this dream job anymore unless I looked more like a family guy and had my wife back made me feel like someone had just kicked me square in the balls! What on earth was I going to do??
"Hey Morgana, sweety its me, we need to talk...." ....
