My father had a quote, 'Family is nothing, all it does is leave you sad and alone.'
I grew up believing that, when it's said to you three times a day everyday you start think there's got to be some truth to it. My junkie mother left when I was three and my brother bolted when I was thirteen, let me tell you growing up with an alcoholic father who blames you for his family leaving is not fun. I was surprised he didn't drop me off at an orphanage and call it a day but no, he said I looked just like my mother and he needed me, in more ways then one.
When I turned seventeen I finally collected the courage to runaway, I didn't know where I was going to be honest I didn't care, I just had to get away. Still mentally and physically scared I spent a year looking for my brother, when I realized that was a dead end I became a drifter, never staying in one place for to long. I got involved with some really bad people, started going down the wrong path. Then I met a man by the name of Dominic Toretto, he challenged me to a race not knowing what he was in for. I was the first person ever to beat him.
You know that feeling you get when see someone and you can't imagine not having them in your life, that's the feeling I got when I first saw Dom. A week later I moved in and officially became part of the team, at that moment I truly learned the meaning of family.
"Katie." I heard Letty yell. "Get your ass down here, we're leaving now." I sighed and pulled my long blonde hair up into a lose bun, looking into the bathroom mirror I gave myself a once over. I'd thrown on an orange tank and some skinny jeans, I paired my outfit with my favorite pair of high-heeled boots. "Katie." Letty yelled again.
I laughed lightly, shaking my head and making my way down the stairs. "Thank god." Jessie groaned getting up off the couch. "Girl, you take forever." Vince followed Jessie out of the house and Letty came up behind me.
"Katie, you okay?" She asked me, I nodded unconvincingly. "You know better then to lie to me." Letty raised her eyebrow. She had that gift where she always knew what everyone was thinking, I'd known her for three years and she can read me like a book.
"Um, Jonny's been calling." I admitted. "I've told him, I'm done and to stop calling but he doesn't get the picture."
"Have you talked to Dom?" Letty asked handing me my purse.
"I was going to but then last nights job came up and he was stressed and I didn't want to add to it." A honk came from outside and I looked at Letty. "I'll tell him tonight, after the races. I promise."
"Katie, Jonny is not a good guy. You of all people know that, tell Dom." I nodded and Letty and I started towards her car.
