Abandoned Hopes chapter fourteen.  


I watched as Ronnie walked up the stairs, leaving me alone in the kitchen. Biting my lip, I looked around nosily. I gasped slightly when I saw a few twenties just laying there on the counter. I looked around cautiously before sanding up slowly, making my way towards money.

I picked the stack up, and counted it hastily. I raised my eyebrows when I was finished, in my hands at that very moment had to be the largest amount of money I’d ever held. $280.00, who leaves that much money out?

I bit my lip and looked around quickly before stealing a jacket off the floor and leaving the house, $280.00 safely hidden in my left shoe. I ignored the guilt that began to eat me alive, Ronnie was nothing. I shouldn't care if I stole money from his friend, I should only care about the alcohol that would be entering my system shortly.

I stopped in my tracks when I saw a bundle on a bench, raising an eyebrow I walked over to it. I shook my head, this had to be the stupidest thing I’d ever done and I've done a lot of stupid shit. I bit my lip when I heard the small lump whimper. "Hey...you ok?" I asked quietly poking the lump.

I jumped when the large dirty jacket was thrown off to reveal a good looking boy who looked to be maybe a year younger than me. The boy stood up quickly smiling.
"I'm Craig Mabbitt, but you can just call me Craig." He said smiling happily.

"Right…” I mumbled staring at him weirdly.
That didn't answer my question. "Oh am I alright? Well I just got kicked out because my Dad found out I was gay, but I'm fine. How are you?" He asked.
"Er...great...I guess. Do you need a place to stay?" I asked quietly, I knew Robert would kill me.

He barely had enough money to afford me, but Craig was just...just too adorable, crazy but adorable. "No...not really." He mumbled looking at the ground. Weirdly as it seemed, I already missed seeing his smile.
"Well you can stay with me and my friend." I offered.

Craig looked up his smile still in place, his eyes bouncing with happiness.
"Really? Wow that's so sweet thank you. Hey what's your name? And why are you at here?" He asked curiously.

Sighing I grabbed his hand gently and continued on my way, now heading towards Robert's apartment. "My name's Max, my friends name's Robert. I'm running...I guess you could say." I shrugged biting my lip. I felt Craig tighten his grip on my hand, comforting me slightly.

"Running from what?" He asked staring at me.

"I stole some money from this guy...a lot of money actually." I confessed looking down.

"Like Oh em gee Maxie you didn't!" Craig exclaimed looking at me with wide eyes.

I looked over at him weirdly, and opened my mouth to speak but was cut off by Craig.
"Like why would you do that?" he asked shocked.
"I needed the money to buy alcohol…” I sighed opening the door to Robert's apartment quietly. Craig opened his mouth, but I quickly placed a hand over it after noticing Robert and his girlfriend Evie's sleeping figures on the couch.

"Quiet." I practically hissed, then looked at his face. He looked scared and confused; I rolled my eyes and hugged him.
"I'm sorry just be quiet. Robert wakes up easily and his girlfriend's pregnant wake her up and you're dead." I warned walking into my room.

"Oh. I'm sorry then." He whispered cuddling closer to me.

"It's ok." I reassured pulling off my shirt and my skinny jeans. "You can sleep with me or sleep on the floor.” I shrugged lying on my bed, if you could call it that.

"Well I would but you're bed looks kinda small.” Craig mumbled pulling off his shirt. I gasped when I saw the deep purple bruises on his stomach and chest. "No, you can." I said smiling.

"Thanks." Craig mumbled smiling lying next to me. "Night Craig." I mumbled kissing his cheek and closing my eyes.

Sorry for the delay guys. Show some love.
