It is time for me to introduce you to another one of my POV characters, Mackenzie Oliver! Or Mack as she prefers to be called.
She tried to look happy in front of her friends
But knew that she’d never feel normal again
She fought back the tears as they filled her eyes
And wanted him back just to tell him goodbye”
Mackenzie OliverThe feeling of cold water splashing her face yanked Mackenzie out of the storm cloud of sleep surrounding her. Coughing and sputtering on the water that got in her mouth and nose, she found herself looking right at her mother who held and empty water bottle in her hand. It was only right then, seeing the angry expression on her mothers face and the splitting headache she had that put the pieces together.
“I’ve had enough of this, Mackenzie!” Her mother exclaimed, the angry expression glued to her face.
Cringing, she found herself wishing her mother could talk just a little quieter. “Alright. Alright. No need to yell.”
“I want you out, Mackenzie.”
The words echoed in her head along with the pounding headache. “Wh-what?”
“I want you out!” Her mother replied in a yell causing her ears to ring. “I’m sick of you coming home drunk! I’m sick of you partying! I’m sick of your stupid friends! I’m sick of you! I want you out!”
Mackenzie just sat there, staring. Not moving. She didn’t care about any of this. This was always a threat her mother had made. The world spun as she moaned, lying back down again.
“I mean it!” Her mother screamed as something heavy but somewhat soft hit her back that she had turned to her mother. “Get out of my house! You aren’t my daughter anymore.” The pounding of feet storming towards the door of the room came to hear ears, pounding in her head like a jackhammer then the following sound of a slamming door came a couple seconds later.
Her head pounded and her ears rang as her mothers screaming still echoed in her mind, bouncing around her skull determined to drive her mad. Sitting up, Mackenzie found a backpack sitting on the bed beside her, now identifying it as what her mother had thrown at her.
Stumbling to her feet, Mackenzie grabbed the backpack, a bitter anger growing in her chest, tightening inside her. Fine. You want me to leave? I’ll leave.
Without a look back, Mackenzie grabbed some sunglasses off her bedside table, put them on and left the home she once called her own.
