Chapter 1: The Ass Or Asses

"Give it to me!" I yell at my brother's friend.

"Reach for it, you little brat!" He laughs in my face.

I growl in annoyance and turn to my brother.

"Ace, tell him to give me my journal," I whine.

"Toss it, Eyeball," Ace claps his hands together.

The boy with the name Eyeball tosses it to him and I run to retrieve it from my brother. Instead of giving it to me like I thought he was, he threw it back to his friend. What is this, monkey in the middle?

I stomp over to Eyeball and kicked him in the balls making him kneel over. I rip my journal from his clutches and hold it close to my chest. I gasped realizing what I did. Eyeball looked at me.

"You little shit," he calls me.

I back away.

"Oh you're in so much trouble," Ace strides toward me. Eyeball got up and walked towards me as well. At this point, I had ran out the house not wanting to be captured.

"Ash, come here!" I hear Ace shout.

I jumped down the porch stairs, and lost my balance when I landed. I stumbled to get up and ran as fast as my feet would carry me. As I did all this, I was screaming.

Ace and Eyeball didn't fall like I did, so they caught up to me easily.

I was practically soaring through town, but that didn't stop them. They were a lot faster than me, but that didn't mean I couldn't try.

"Get back here, you little fuck!" Eyeball yelled at me.

"Fuck off and suck my brother's dick!" I shout back.

I then realized the more, I piss them off, the more pain I'll be in later.

I race through acres of brown grass and I was getting tired. I tripped over an old tire hidden in the tall grass. It was over, they caught me.

I gripped the grass with my small hands for dear life.

"Get up!" Ace screamed at me.

I clutched my eyes closed as I felt Ace's hands wrap around my sides pulling me up. He put me in a Full Nelson facing his friend.

"Now, what do you have to say, Ash?" Ace asked me like he's the innocent one.

"Nothing. I have nothing to say to you guys. You pricks barged into my room," I retorted.

"Just say you're sorry," Eyeball taps my chin.

"Sorry for what?!" I screech. "That you guys have small dicks!"

Eyeball looked up at Ace and smirked.

"Your sister is a real smart ass, Ace," Eyeball smirked. "I'm gonna have to do it."

"Go ahead," Ace smirked, too.

Eyeball took out a pack of cigerrates and lighter and lit the cigerrate. He blew the smoke in my face.

"Bastard," I mumbled.

Eyeball kept the lighter out. I thought he would've put it away by now...oh shit! He's not...he wouldn't, he's not that crazy, is he?

Eyeball walked closer to me and put the lighter near my lips.

"Dude, stop!" I scream.

I tried to at least squirm, but Ace had me in a tight grip.

"Say your sorry," Ace whispers in my ear.

I was scared to talk. The lighter was so close to my lips.

"I'm sorry," I mumble quickly.

"Did you hear that, Ace. She's sorry," Eyeball mocks me. "Well, sorry isn't going to cut it. Because of you, I may not have children."


I somehow failed to notice that Ace had let go of me. Eyeball punched me in the face and I fell to the ground. Eyeball picked up my journal, smirked and tossed it to me. He had to see that page.

"Yeah, that'll never happen," he laughed. "Lets go, Ace."

Ace smacked my shoulder before leaving with Eyeball. I glared at their backs as they walked away.

"Such bitches!" I said through gritted teeth.

I looked down at the picture. It was a sketch I drew of my family. My teacher always said I was a good drawer. She said they look really realistic.

After what felt like hours, I got up and walked into town. I walked into the corner store and strides to the candy isle. I grabbed a chocolate bar and headed to the register. I gave the clerk a quarter and grabbed my chocolate bar. I opened it and walked out of the store. I kept my eyes on my black Chuck Taylor's as I walked out. I bumped into somebody not paying attention to where I was going.

"Watch where you're going!" I yell at them.

"ME?! You bumped into me!" The person exclaimed.

I looked up to face them.

"Do you wanna fight me, Chambers?" I asked him.

"Why don't you go home and play with your dolls?!" Teddy roughly ruffled my hair.

"Leave me alone, Duchamp," I duck my head away from his hand. "I already have enough shit on my plate."

"How do you know our names?" Vern asked.

"Chambers, Tessio, when the gang your brothers are apart off, are at your house, you learn things. The Cobras are always over at my house," I answer. "Plus, this is a small town."

I turn to walk away, but one of them grabbed my arm. I turn towards them.

"What is it, Chambers?" I asked.

"Hey, aren't you Ace's little sis?" He asks me.

"Yeah," I nod.

Teddy, Vern, and Gordie back away before breaking into a run. I frown and look down.

"Don't worry," Chris pats my arm. "They just don't want to get beat up by Ace."

"I can understand," I smile. "Hey, your brother is just as bad."

"How?" Chris smiled.

"He tried to burn me with a lighter?"

"What ya do?"

"Kicked him in the balls, only because he took something special to me!"

"Well, I guess we're in the same boat."

I smile at him.

"Hey, what's your name?" Chris asks me.

"Ashton, but you can call me Ash."
