Thorns Of Love

by Christina Spear Aka Lustful wishes

 

What lies within masks the truth about thy self, disquiseing the lies and the truth with riddles and rhymes. Weighing the balance of light and dark between the lines of destiny.

 

Audjery awoke with a start, her sheets drenched with sweat and twisted all around her. The phrase lingering in her mind like a familar song you can't quite place. Wiping her face with her hand she sighed heavily as she looked at the clock. 4:30 Am. She groaned as she disentangled herself from the twisted sheets that were around her body, letting her feet hit heavily on the wooden floor of her room. "Well might as well get my jog in early today, since, trying to go back to sleep is pointless". With that she pushed off her bed and walked to her bathroom pulling back the shower curtain; turning the hot water on full blast, she stripping off her sweat soaked nightwear. Stepping into the steamy shower and starting her day. As she shut the entrance door to the apartment, she inhaled the crisp morning air while pressing play on her iPod. Jogging to the high school, Audjery slipped through the side gate and before she took off sprinting down the track she set her watch alarm and phone alarm to 6:00Am. As she was doing this a man entered through the very same gate wearing a burgundy sports outfit doing the same as he stopped next to her. Startled she glanced at him and started apologizing. The man smiled and held up his hand to stop her in mid-sentence to tell her that his name was Thomas Nuberry and that he was a fellow jogger like her. Tom stuck his hand out in greeting. Audjery smiled and blushed as she realized he wasn't school faculty. She shook his hand and told him her name was Audjery Miller. " Well Mr. Nuberry shall we get our jog on?". She asked Tom as she pulled her blond hair into a semi messy pony tail. " Aye, that we shall" Tom replied with an Irish lilt,  a playful smirk and a challenging look in his eyes.  And with that they both took off as the early fog consumed their retreating bodies.

 

Two hours and fifteen minutes later...

 

Tom and Audjery were in a local coffee shop whispering excitedly, telling stories and comparing interests. Taylor and her best friend Sam  walked in like walking zombies as they dragged themselves to the counter. Taylor laid her head down on her folded arms and stared blankly to her left and noticed a cute girl and what she presumed was her boyfriend. Groaning at the idea of couples she turned her head back at the register and her friend Sam, her eyes lighting up at the sight of the steaming hot cup of coffee. Standing up , she grabbed the foam cup and went  to a window seat while she sipped on her dose of caffeine to jump start her day. While Audjery was talking to Tom about the places she wanted to visit one day, she noticed two girls had entered the coffee shop. They were both dressed warm, one looked what she would guess to be a modern day hippy with long dirty blond dread-locked hair under a brightly colored woven cap along with a tie-dyed scarf , semi loose olive green cargo pants, black ankle boots and a knee length black wool jacket. She seemed to be the more lively one as she was the one ordering. The other one was slumped over the counter. From what Audjery could see the other girl was wearing black boots that came to her calf which she wore over faded black  ripped jeans with white thermals underneath. Her jacket was a worn black trench coat that had been decorated all down the back with safety pins ,three little spikes on the shoulders and one on each collar. Her hair seemed to be dark brown or auburn and a little wavy that came down to the top of her shoulders. In the few moments that it took to accumulate what they were wearing, Audjery found their style interesting and while she was thinking this Tom interrupted with a question, making her focus return to the subject at hand and making her miss Taylor's glance their way.

 Sam was sitting there talking a mile a minute about the board meeting she was guest speaking at, something to do with the lunches at the high school , but this was nothing new. Taylor found it  hard  to get into the conversation at this hour, especially when her mind was somewhere completely different; plus it didn't help that it was so early in the morning and only working with a couple hours of sleep. Taylor pondered if she would be late if she got a little shut eye before her class started and thought better of it. Finishing her cup of coffee, Taylor headed out of the door behind Sam and was on her way to a long day that awaited her.  By the time it was noon Taylor  was back to being a walking zombie as she walked to the shade that a great oak tree offered on the campus. She plumped down next to her messenger bag as she curled up and decided to take a nap while she had thankfully the  rest of the afternoon off . After what seemed like fifteen minutes a silhouetted shadow blocked out the patched sunlight provided by the giant oak, opening her eyes she realized that her friend Richard was standing over her with a weird smile on his face. Groaning as she sat up she asked " What are you smiling at?" He replied "oh nothin' just thought you looked priceless all sleepin' like that.. should have brought a camera"; laughing lightly. " What are you doing nappin' under a tree anyway? Is everything ok?" Stretching from her small little nap Taylor was just about to answer when she noticed the girl from the coffee shop that morning, juggling a huge stack of books while trying to uncap what looked like a bottle of soda. Taylor excused herself for a moment, her eyes never leaving  the girl.

 

she saw this going all types of wrong if someone didn't help her soon. Lightly jogging the small distance to the walkway where the girl was still struggling with the load in her arms Taylor took a deep breath and exhaled getting the courage to walk up to the tall beautiful girl that increasingly peaked her curious mind. " Need some help? Looks like you got a lot of stuff  and  it would be better if the soda didn’t get all over it." Taylor offered kindly with a small self-conscious smile. "That would be wonderful , thank you so much..." Taylor  grabbed the books from the beautiful blonde whose name she didn’t  know yet. Normally she wouldn't go out of her  way  to help someone, but something about this girl was very appealing besides her outer appearance something that just clawed at her subconscious mind . She better not hear a word  about this from Rich or so help him there would be a whipped cream hand  and a feather tickling his nose next time he stayed over... " So you taken' all these courses"? she asked amazed at the titles of some of the books. The girl smiled sheepishly her cheeks brightening slightly." Yeah, I learn quickly, it helps when you have a photographic  memory." she shrugged it off like it was no big deal. Taylor extended her hand as her eyes sparkled with intense curiosity." The names Taylor Andrews " she smiled warmly. The blonde girl extended her's in return. "Audjery Miller, pleased to meet you". "Pleased to meet you as  well Audjery Miller". smiling softly at the sound of Audjery's name rolling off her tongue. "Do you need help getting somewhere? I can help you with some of it so it's not such a hazard zone". She asked laughingly. " Yeah, that would be great!, my car is parked by the main entrance " recapping her soda Audjery took half the stack of books and started walking with Taylor towards her car.

 

 Audjery heard Taylor whistle as she approached her burgundy 71' Chrysler that her  grandpa gave to her before he passed away three years ago. Smiling she ran her hand adoringly across the hood of it. "Yeah, this used to be my grandpa's but he gave it to me in his Will. I like to call it Beauty, I know it's a cliché but it suits it I think ". Audjery smiled wide at herself. Taylor  was just breathless from the way she looked as her face brightened, it made her feel weak inside. As she realized that she probably looked like a gawking idiot, Taylor looked away and asked where she wanted her books. " Oh you can just put them in the passenger seat ". Audjery smiled. Taylor opened the door to the passenger side of Beauty and put the books inside." Well, I guess that’s it then, hope to see you around soon ." She smiled at Audjey with what she hoped was genuine.. it took her just in that brief moment to remember she saw her with an attractive  guy at the coffee shop and she didn't want to get her hopes  up or anything. Love wasn't really her strongest suit, she always ended up getting hurt somehow. Walking over to Audjery she stuck out her hand and wished her safe driving and quickly walked back to her spot where she left Richard and her messenger bag, not noticing that Audjery looked longingly after her with a baffled look , noting the change of pace in her voice then shook her head and got in her car .

As Taylor approached Richard, he was sitting with his back to the mighty oak reading a paperback  that was creased so much it looked like it might need packing tape on the spine just to keep it together . She plopped down next to him and saw him jump about a foot in the air. He gave her a raised eyebrow and was about to ask what all that was about nodding toward the main parking lot , but she stopped him with a glare saying " Don't ask..". "oooh-k... didn't go as well as you planed I take it.." He replied. With a sigh she took out an apple out of her lunch and took a big bite out of it, the juice slightly running down her chin, wiping it away she mumbled something  about it not being any of his business. After a few moments of silence Taylor stood up and whipped her hands on her jeans, leaning down to grab her messenger bag off the grass. "See ya' later Rich, I think I’m going home to finish some homework and pass out. Promise we will hang out at Tilly's tomorrow or something ( the coffee shop that they both visited regularly) she smirked, fisting Richard's fist." peace out home skillet" she said as she headed the opposite way she went to walk Audjery to her car, out toward the parking lot that would be her quickest exit to the freeway. Grabbing the keys to her vintage orange 65' mustang Taylor unlocked it and slid her messenger bag off her shoulder and placed it in the passenger seat, as she slid in the driver's seat with practiced ease and started up her baby and started for the freeway to the place she called home.
