Before Kevin could answer, Corry called out to them again.

'Hey! I'm not going to ask you again. Both of you leave. I have to get ready and you're both pissing me off!'

Kevin stormed out of the apartment after that, feeling agitated and angry. He didn't speak to Rachel again, wishing only to get away from her.

He headed back to the home he stayed at with Alex and his parents. The place where he lived now. It would only be for a short time.

He walked back through the streets quickly, heading towards the housing estate, checking his phone briefly.

There were several missed calls, and when he checked the number, he realised it was Justin.

Kevin grimaced, closing his phone and pocketing it.

He didn't call Justin back, and thought nothing more of him.

He didn't care what Justin wanted.

It took him ages to return to the home, along the way he stopped to buy a drink, and then stopped again to buy a sandwich.

'Shit I'm running out of money' he said counting what was left.

His mobile began to ring.

'Hey Christina' he said answering it immediately.

'Where the fuck have you been?'

'I was out clubbing.'

'I've been trying to call you' Christina said to him from down the line. 'Have you got bad signal or something?'

'Sorry I didn't hear it ring.'

'I've got some good news for you.'

Kevin perked up then, listening intently to her.

'Go on' he prompted.

'You're going to get your job back.'

Kevin couldn't help but cry out in relief at this.

'Really?' he said. 'Do you mean it?'

'Yeah' Christina replied, 'do you want to come over or what?'

'Are you there now?'

'Yeah, I came over early to talk to the boss. He's here for only a few hours if you want to talk to him. Hurry up and you'll catch him, he's going out later.'

'Ok I'll be right there.'

He ate his sandwich quickly and turned on the spot, jogging down the street.

He moved swiftly through the town, crossing the traffic carefully, slowing down as he reached the restaurant.

'There you are' Christina said as he hurried past her.

'Oh hey' he fumbled. 'I uh…'

'He's in the back' Christina pointed.

Kevin mumbled a thanks and hurried past her, heading through the restaurant and into the kitchen.

His boss was waiting for him. Christian had told him that he had

been coming.

It had been an anxious time for Kevin, but after speaking with him for quite some time, he agreed to give Kevin his job back.

'Thank you so much' Kevin had said. 'I promise I won't let you down.'

He met Christina in the restaurant immediately after that.

She had been waiting for him.

'How did it go?' she asked him quickly.

'I got my job back' Kevin grinned awkwardly, feeling a little flustered.

Christina let out a sigh of relief, smiling too.

'Thank god.'

'I know you put in a good word for me.'

'Of course, ' she beamed. 'You know I would do that for you.'

'Why are you still here by the way?' Kevin asked. 'Shouldn't you be in school?'

'Nope' she said cheerily. 'I got lessons later.'

'No rest for the wicked' Kevin sighed tiredly.

'And what about you?' Christina asked. 'You got class?'

'Later today' Kevin said. 'I think I'm going home now.'

'What home is that then?'

'I'm staying with a friend' Kevin replied simply. 'What about you?' he asked. 'You got this thing sorted with your friend?'

'It'll take a while' Christina spoke quietly, 'but she's gone home now. I'll see her again soon.'

'Jane was it?'

'Yes' Christina nodded. 'That was her name.'

Kevin nodded slowly at that.

'What are you going to do now?'

'You know what?' Kevin said. 'I don't feel like going to school at all today.'

'Ok?' Christina laughed.

'I think I'm just going to go home and crash.'

'Sure' Christina nodded. 'I'll catch you later then I suppose.'

'Take it easy' Kevin said turning away from her. 'See you around.'

Chapter Nineteen

A Dark Place

Alex was not there when Kevin reached the home, the quiet housing estate. Alex's mother let him in, offering him food, but Kevin declined.

'I think I'm just going to rest' Kevin had said to her.

'Ok dear' Alex's mother said.

'Where's Alex?'

'He's at school' she replied. 'I'm surprised you're not there.'

'Nah' Kevin smiled weakly. 'I got class later.'

'You're not going?'

'I don't really feel up to it' Kevin admitted. 'I probably won't go out today. I'm kinda hung over, I was out last night and uh…' he smiled awkwardly then. 'I think I had too much to drink.'

'That isn't good for you' she frowned. 'You shouldn't do that. What would your parents think?'
