Kasey POV:

I got woken up by someone shaking me. I groaned as I opened my eyes. This room doesn't look familiar, I think as I look around.

"Hey Kasey" the "bad boy" Jesse says to me.

What happened yesterday?

"Hey Jesse why am I here? And thanks for the water and tablets by the way" I say and he nods.

"You were drunk" he says and I relax a bit.

Jesse POV:

"Come on Kasey. I will drop you back to yours" I say softly. I don't even know why I am acting like this.

Maybe because I know how it feels. Or because when she got told I could see her break.

"Let me call my mum. Oh and can you remind me to go and give my mum a massive hug. I had a horrible nightmare that she died." She says smiling. I feel my heart breaking for her. This is going to kill her.

"Kasey... that wasn't a dream." I say quietly looking at her. She stops and looks down like her feet was the most interesting thing ever.

"Oh yeah. Sorry Jesse I should go" she says walking past me.

"Kasey" I say gently grabbing her shoulders.

She spins around and then I see she is close to crying. Although looking absolutely gorgeous, I can see her breaking.

I put my arms around her and run her back in a soothing manner.

"Shh Kasey. It would be okay" I say repeatedly. When my mother died I hated when people told me it would get better. It is lies. You just live with it.

Once she calmed down I tell her we should head back she nodded emotionlessly.

I felt like any little thing would break her.

"You know, my mum died too" I say when we get in the car. I don't know why I felt like saying this to get but I feel like she should know someone has experienced what she is and she isn't alone.

"Really?" She asked sniffing. I looked over to see her trying not to cry.

I put my hand on hers.

"Kasey I ain't going to lie to you and say it gets better because, lets be honest, look at me" I chuckle humorlessly "but even though I am the "badboy" or what ever you want to say, I am here for you. I can see you don't deal with it the same way I did and I hope you don't. You mess up your future. Everything. But if you ever need anything I am here for you" I say.

"Why are you being so nice to me?" She says curiously

I don't know.

"Because when my mother died I had no body" I say and watched as she nodded her head.

"Well same for you. " she says about the being here for you thing and I smile genuinely at her.

"Thanks" I say and I hear her sigh.

"I'm not going to sale the house. I am 18 in 2 months and I am moving out from with my dad the day I turn 18." She says and I can't help wonder why. My thoughts drifted back to what she told me yesterday about how her mum wouldn't "kill her like her dad did". All I knew was whatever her dad did wasn't good.

"Okay." I say as a pull up in the driveway. Her dad literally lived next door to me so she shouldn't get hurt. I feel like she is just so vulnerable at the moment.

Like if she got bullied in school she would stick up for herself but with this she isn't strong enough... like a kitten. That's what I am going to call her from now on and she sure as hell wouldn't like it.

"Do you need an

y help?" I ask getting out with her.

"If you don't mind" she says sending me a broken smile.

"Of course not, come on" I say to kitten as we walked into the house.

After 4 hours we had packed everything in her room.

I also accidentally said her nickname instead of her name getting her to laugh.

And I am not going to lie and say it never brightened up the room because it definitely did...

We put everything in the car. I was just closing the boot when kitten came up behind me.

"Jesse" she says looking so nervous and empty.

"Yeah" I say putting the last bag in the backseat.

"I just want to say thanks. You know for everything. Like helping me when I was drunk. Being here."she says and then mumbles under her breath "even though you probably don't care."

"It's okay. I am here for you kitten... literally going to be next door." I smile when she chuckled. We both got in and drove to the assholes place in total silence.

Whoa. It made me angry thinking that she was going to live with someone she hated.

We stopped outside and she took a deep shaky breath.

"Kitten. I am coming in with you" she was about to protest when I carried on "to help you carry your bags" I added and she smiled at me.

"thanks"she says and I nod.

I know that feeling when her mothers death hasn't sunk in yet. And when it does she is going to find it hard to cope.

"C'mon" I say grabbing 2 bags and knocking on the door.

A man who looked nothing like kitten answered.

"Can I help you?" He slurred. I am so not leaving kitten here in her own.

Why do you care?

"Yeah. Kasey meant to live here right? I am helping with the stuff" I say and he nods.

"Come in" he says and I am immediately hit with the scent of alcohol and weed.

She isn't going to be okay living here.

"Where is her room?" I ask and he replied saying it was upstairs first left. I nod and take my time to have a look around.

I came across his room and it didn't seem anything unusual about it.

Why do I care?

I don't.

But you do.

Shut up.

I speak to myself. I told myself to shut up.

What the fuck is wrong with me?!

I place the bags down in the far corner and smirk... this room is opposite my guest room that I used last night. What a coincidence?

After helping kitten with her stuff I say goodbye and give her my number just in case and left the house. I got a text and I kind of was disappointed when it wasn't kitten.

Don't.

Don't.

You don't care.

Put up walls.

It can't happen again! I think and that is exactly what I am going to do.

I check my message and it was from one of my best friends, Parker.

From: Parker

To:Jesse

I'm coming over yours... step parents at it again. Thanks bud. Cya In a bit.

I smirk at the text.

To: Parker

From: Jesse

What makes you think you can stay over?

I wait in my car out side of kittens house before I get a reply.

From: Parker

To: Jesse

Kinda in your drive way.

I laugh and pull in to my drive way to find him there.

I pull him into a bro hug.

"Wassup dude" he says I shrug.

"Nothing" I smirk looking at kitten staring out her window at me.
