Coming to a stop just at her driveway, I called her.

"Alex, I'm here."

"Okay. I'll be down in a minute."

I let down the window pane and fell back on my seat, savoring the cool breeze. Staring ahead at the shadowed road, I hummed along Pearl-Jam's Black playing in the stereo as I waited for her.

Just few second later, I saw my blue-haired bro striding down the walkway in her usual quick pace as if something was chasing her; a laptop on her side and headphones around her neck.

She'd gotten so used to chasing time she always seemed so busy every freaking second. She worked, worked, worked and worked. Since her parents weren't in the state to look after her, she'd taken upon herself to be her own parent. Her aunt and the husband weren't really the most caring guardians either.

Alex was the strongest person I'd ever known. She was a fighter. That was why me and the guys had so much respect for her. People usually would judge and misunderstand her. It's a good thing she doesn't really give two shits but. . . She did have a heart that felt.

Get on her bad side, you're dead. Get on her good side, you have a friend for a lifetime who will always stand beside you and for you.

I leaned over and pushed open the door for her.

"Hey, " she greeted as she got in, throwing her laptop towards the backseat.

"Hey, " I answered, giving her a quick hug. "Your aunt's home?"

"Yeah." She answered, helping herself to a pack of Orbit she'd brought along with her.

"Why isn't she shouting from the door today?"

"A change of bowels, probably, " she mumbled.

I nodded with a laugh. "Probably. That's great."

"Yeah." She replied, smiling widely. "She's actually started to support our thing after we won the Regional Finals."

"For real, " I shook my head, starting the engine.

It was really surprising her aunt didn't say anything today. It was like an absolute rule for her to object on Alex going out with us for gigs. Every single time we had a gig, she'd have to shout from the door some bullshits like how we were into a kind of crap that was never going to get us a life. . . And not to return home too late.

To be honest, we were just enjoying what we do. We didn't really care about the other stuffs. If we get more, it's great. If we don't, we just keep playing about everythi

to you later, Chase." I said, peering through the crowd.

"Sure. See you around, bro, " he slapped my arm. "Matt!" He called out.

With what Scott said whom he saw earlier, I was sure my Mongrel was around somewhere here. I took another swig from the coke in my hand again and moved into the crowd, looking out for her. Few seconds later, I made out the brunette head heading towards the door for the next room where most people were dancing.

She was wearing a dress.

"Alana, " I called.

She stopped walking at once. For a moment I thought she would look back but the next second, she started to stride away from me, quickening her pace.

~ What the fuck? Is she running away from me?

"Alana." I called again, following her.

She didn't even look back.

~ What's her problem?

"Mongrel?" I was starting to worry if maybe someone had messed up with her to the point she wouldn't want to face anyone.

You never know what can happen in a party, especially the parties we throw.

She grabbed a mask from the nearby table and with that over her face, she strode ahead.

"We're not playing hide and seek. I know it's you, " I said, widening my footsteps and getting closer to her.

With a defeated sigh, her shoulders dropped and she finally turned to face me; the mask still on her face.

I scoffed and had just begun to say that there was no point in her running away from me and then everything went South when she pulled down the mask.

I stopped short and stared at her.

~ Wow.

She looked amazing. Beautiful.
