You had known (f/n) since you were really young you remembered how you met. You were 5 at the time you still wore pointy anime shades at the time you had gotten a bag of candy, bro wanted to give you a treat you were being really good lately. The past hour you had been hearing screaming and crying and bangs you paid no mind it wasn't your business, well that was until she came running out, she was about the same age as you she was wearing a yellow dress with little red blotches here and there her hair was in messy pigtails she was littered in bruises. She didn't not notice you she slid down the walls and began to sob you felt bad for her. You walked up put on your poker face "hey why you cryin?" You said as cool as a five year old could she looked up she whimper and responded "my mommy and daddy left me." She sobbed even harder you sat beside her "hey don't cry ill help you find th-" she cut you off "they left me on purpose." You didn't show it but you were puzzled how could parents leave on purpose." She just sobbed harder, you pulled out your bag and took out a strawberry lollipop " here." She looked up she took it and began to lick it. You wondered why she was covered in bruises, you learned when you were older that she was abused. That day she tried to go home but it was empty her parents really had left you looked around there was a note on the table it read "there is a kid do whatever." You tore up the note you found her sitting in what you assumed was her room, she hugged a photo of two teens, the girl was pregnant probably with her. In the short time you spent talking to her you had learned each others names "dave what am i gonna do?" You just thought for a very long time, she couldn't stay here obviously the landlord was a jerk and would throw her on the street. Then it came to you "come home with me." She looked at you her (e/c) eyes welling up with tears "but what if they come back?" She rubbed her battered arms "my bro will take care of that" you thought she meant so they could take her home but she didn't want them to come back. "Ok." You grabbed her wrist and pulled her through the halls to the elavator , soon you were on the top floor you opened the door "bro! I brought something!" He just sighed "dave if you have more cats." He turned around expecting a kitten but saw a girl. Yeah, it took a lot to get him to say yes but (f/n) lived here. That was about 11 years ago you were both in high school now that shy little girl tuned into a funny, outgoing girl she was similar to john but she had witty humor so she was cool. Most people thought it was weird that a girl that wasn't your sister but they can suck it, she lives where she lives the state had tried to take her a few times but bro always fought em off. You were sitting with (f/n) now she was drawing you as her art homework. "Dave stay still, im trying to capture the sunlight but you keep blocking and unblocking it." You moved your head to where it was showing damn this girl was an artist it was amazing what she could do, and music when you two got together you could make sweet harmony. Soon she finished "ok mr.strider as your reward for not moving to much ill get some apple juice." And to this you responded " shit its about to be like christmas up in here." She just giggled and left yeah you were pretty good at makin her laugh. She left her sketch book out so i thought id look through it, there was a lot of pictures one was of little cal just chillin on the couch ,one was of you and bro fighting on the roof, but then something surprised you there was a picture of her and john taped onto a paper and underneath a pencil version, you never thought john and (f/n) hanged out without you but apparently they did a lot! You found many pictures of them and then (f/n) walked in with the juice "dave what are you doing?" You put the sketch book down "nothin just lookin at your art before i have to pay a hundred dollars just to see it." You said smoothly she thought nothing of it" so um (f/n) you wanna go skating later?" She looked longingly at her skate board "yes." She got all giddy thinking about it, then her phone rang it played some song called dirty night clowns she quickly picked it up. " hello? Oh hey john, um well im going skating with dave wanna meet up afterwards?" She nodded then hung up "whats with john?" She just giggled "were going pranking later" she smiled at the thought. Whats with that you make her smile, whats up with egbert makin her all giddy and shit? Whatever.
You wonder why daves being all up in your business yeah he's your best bro forever but he barley questions who you talk to or what your doing. Whatever he was probably just being curious "you wanna go skate now?" "Yeah." You both grabbed your boards but then bro blocked the door "homework" you both nodded and he let you go "seeya bro." You said as you walked out, as soon as you were out of the building you slammed down onto that concrete and you two were off . Dave kept his hands in his pocket as you went you put your hands up at the sides keeping balance. Once you got to the "warehouse" as you guys called it it was an abandoned lot there was a huge warehouse sorta burnt looking but it was legit you and fellow skaters had gathered here a long time. You entered no one was here you went to your secret spot while dave tried some new tricks you pulled out a piece of the wall inside held a box full of new spray paint you had bought last week. You took out the white and began. when the finished product was done dave came over he just stared you had been wanted to make this mural a long time but you weren't good enough until now, you had a picture you had taken on your 15th birthday it was you dave and bro ,bro hand his one of his hand on each of your shoulders, you were smiling while dave just kept a poker face. It was your favorite picture that was recent, you had pictures from a few months ago on your 16th birthday but that was a disaster. It was a nice piece of art to add to the warehouse there was a few other murals from other artists but this was yours you marked it with your signature. "Done." You breathed out as you put up your paint and hid it again no mofo's be messin with your special paint that shit was expensive unlike regular spray paint. When you came back dave had his iphone out he was sending the picture he had taken to bro and john he'd show everyone else later like he usually did when you made your spray paintings . You decided you would skate a little before you left. You and dave were heading home it was dark you needed to get off this side of town, during the day it was fine but night, well motherfucker you better get yourself inside, bitches be crazy out here. You and dave were hauling ass on your boards, until someone hit dave with their own skateboard, dave was down "dave!" You screamed as you jumped off your board you put his head on your lap his nose bleeding and glasses cracked. "Why would you you eve-" you were cut off you saw who it was gamzee. He had been one of your childhood friends but then he got into the drugs and sorta snapped. "Gamzee…" you whispered you still worried for him and kept in contact but he sorta wanted you, every time he would ask you if you would rule beside him as the true messiah, you always refused. Now he stand here in his purple hoodie down with blood dripping down his board, "dave? Are you ok?" Obviously not but you meant if he could get up. He groans but begins to sit up "what the fuck makara?" He picked up his board you stood beside him with your board you both were ready to access your strife modus if needed ,gamzee began to laugh softly "you mutherfuckers don't know what your in for." Gamzee may be alone but he's still seriously dangerous, he took a step towards you "(f/n) come on rule beside me and accept me as the true messiah." You looked at your so called "friend" you just felt so sad he used to be so nice and fun, now he was crazy thinking he was a god. "No gamz." He grew infuriated "WHY THE MUTHERFUCK NOT!?" You began to get scared you retrieved your chain scythe and held it in front of you dave with his sword "gamzee you went crazy your not even gamzee anymore your just a shell of who you used to be." He lunged at you but you slashed him a huge purple x now across his chest your scythes now dripped purple, gamz ran away you really wished you didnt have to do that. "*sigh*" you felt a tear slip down your face and then daves comforting hand "i know you miss him but hes long gone (f/n)."you put back your chain scythe and slammed yourself into him sobbing he petted your hair, dave always was here you hoped he always would be " if he keeps fucking around with you im gonna beat his crazy juggalo ass." This made you giggle "come on lets get home before bro starts to worry". You smiled , as you entered the apartment bro gave you a thumbs up for your mural but then looked at your shirt 3 purple splatters obviously not paint "were you dealing with that makara kid again?" You wouldn't lie you tried that once dave and bro see straight through you. "Yeah nothing serious i took care of him." He stared a minute longer satisfied then nodded he began to clean up daves face.You went to go take a bath and then you realized "JOHN!" You grab your phone 3 missed calls all john you dialed, he picked up "john im sorry i got caught up in my art the-" he cut you off " its fine dave explained already we can go another time ill pester you later i gotta go my dad needs me". And with that he hung up, you showered then blow dried your hair, you threw on some pj's and curled up to your computer it was already ten but its friday so who cares. You watched some anime, pestered tavros, and then read some super natural fanfiction. Pretty good night you fell asleep but woke up at the feeling of your bed shifting someone wrapped there arms around your waist "dave…" you sighed the boy just nuzzled his face into your back "you smell nice." You just laughed "yeah i've been using this new thing called soap." He just put his head onto your shoulder "well its working." His breath went over your cold ears giving you gossebumps "you cant keep just coming in here and sleeping with me it was cool when we were 8 but were 16 so now its weird." He was ignoring you he was already dozing off " whatever strider" you smiled as you pulled up the blanket.
The next morning you and (f/n) had to go to work it was this cd/book store deal you could play awesome music and she could read all she wants. You both punched in and got to work you began with a skrillex mix slats slats slats , no one was here yet so (f/n) began to dance, she looked so stupid but she looked happy. The door was opened as some very crabby short stack you haven't seen in a while came up yelling at (f/n) "(F/N) DID YOU GET THE BOOKS I ORDERED?" She smiled "yeah cupkat right here " she pulled out a small package "40 bucks" karkat shoved her the money and sped out "seeya kk!" She yelled before he left. Soon the store was busy, a lot of people came here it was a nice hang out, soon a girl in a white tank top and short shorts came up , she had long blonde hair hazel eyes and lets just say she had a chest on her, she pulled a lollipop out of her mouth, and began to speak " so what type of music of music would you recommend?" She said lustfully she was obviously older but you were tall for your age "um well foster of the people is pretty good try them." She was smiling you were starting to get uncomfortable yeah you liked women but she was making you feel bad, (f/n) was standing right there , you looked at the woman she was at least 21 " what time do you get out of work?" Ok no. Nope "i have a girlfriend."you lied She sneered "who!?" She looked over the counter (f/n) was standing there she smiled at the woman, she was obviously observing her (f/n) was younger had a cute butt and her chest was actually a really good size and she was adorable but could obviously be sexy. That woman was pissed she stormed of her heels clicking on the tile floor. You looked at (f/n) who was obviously confused she just shrugged and rung up the next customer, that woman must have thought (f/n) was your girlfriend , you chuckled at that (f/n) your girlfriend...silly. But you started to think about it her being yours, you could kiss her ,hug her, hold hands, other things… you were about to blush but hardened your poker face striders.dont.blush. you looked back at name one more time, maybe just maybe.....
