Chapter Two: When I Was Normal
I finally finished typing up this chapter. This is mostly a flash back chapter, but this first scene involves Tara and Rogue. We’ll be seeing a lot of her in this story. She’s an original character I created strictly for this particular story.
Well, enough babbling, on with the story.
The night air was warm, but Rogue covered herself with a thick jacket with a hood to conceal her appearance as she raced down the street. She didn’t want to leave town without at least saying goodbye to her best friend. Tara Vaughn had been just that for the last year or so.
They had met on Tara’s first day of school. She and her family had moved there from West Orange, New Jersey. Rogue didn’t have any close friends until Tara showed up. They were two outcast Goth chicks who didn’t care much about popularity clicks. They became a threesome when Bruno Camp, Tara’s boyfriend from New Jersey followed her to Caldecott a month later to the dismay of Tara’s parents. In fact, she went out of her way to piss them off and revealed in their disapproval.
Rogue reached Tara’s house and climbed up the roof to her bedroom window. She looked inside to see Tara on her phone and pacing back and forth. Rogue gently tapped on her window, and Tara quickly turned to see Rogue’s disoriented face through the window. Tara quickly raced to the window and opened it.
“Rogue, what the hell!” Tara said as she helped her friend inside.
“Hey, Tara,” Rogue said as she gave her friend a sorrowful look.
“What happened to you tonight?” Tara asked. “After what happened with Cody, Bruno and I tried to find you. This bald guy in a wheelchair was asking all sorts of questions.”
“What did you tell him?” Rogue asked.
“There wasn’t much to tell, only that you freaked out after Cody passed out and took off.” Tara stopped for a moment. “They seemed really…concerned, especially the bald guy… What was his name gain…? Xavier, that’s it.”
