No Particular Reason

Here is the story link: No Particular Reason

And if someone will be kind enough to make me an avatar for this story, I would be eternally grateful. Inquire by PM.

Jakob Armstrong is about to enter his first year of high school and childhood memories are left to gather dust, forgotten as new ones take their place, without the sweet taste of happiness. Someone he once considered a friend has betrayed him and for no particular reason attacks him in the most brutal of ways.

To protect and save what’s left of his family, Billie Joe relocates them to an unknown place in the middle of nowhere and the Armstrongs must adapt to the world around them, or wallow in misery. Friendships suffer and are severed by the actions of all and only time can tell if healing is an option.


This story was inspired by Don’t Let Morning Come by Jimmy4Whatsername.

Teaser

“Don’t tell Mom.” Jakob said again as he and Joey drove home after school. His hair was only slightly damp now but his pride was as bruised as ever.

“Who did it Jake?”

“Don’t tell Mom.”

“Why not?”

“Don’t tell Mom.”

Joey growled in defeat. “Fine. But at least tell me who it was. I promise I won’t tell Mom.”

Jakob was silent for a beat. His mind was swimming with the swirling water and Frankito’s harsh laugh in the background. He remembered Frankito teasing him when he wouldn’t go with them to buy weed or break into a disabled old lady’s house. That grin that smeared itself on Frankito’s face made chills go up Jakob’s spine.

“I don’t know who he was.”

I can't wait for you to read it either! I've finished writing My Fair Lady so I'm able to start another story along with Warning.

That's awesome.I should read My Fair Lady Think.

This new one seems really interesting...and I've been trying to read Don't Let Morning Come (I keep getting distracted when I do).It's a great story to draw inspiration from.

It was different and deep, at least to me it was. I really enjoyed reading it. I enjoyed it so much I spun something off from it. It's a loose connection the more I write, but it's still there. I wouldn't have thought of it if it weren't for that story.

I will inquire you about an avatar. I used to be able to make really cute ones but I don't have a very applicable program anymore.

I'm still waiting for it to be posted. Hopefully by tomorrow or Tuesday it'll be posted so I'm getting excited! I've written about 13 or so chapters for it so far.

I posted it when I first got on here just now and saw that the chapter was up. It was probably 10 mintues before you posted that. It's cool either way.

Uh uh. I still have a couple more to go. Do you think I would leave poor Jakob like that? Nah, I got more drama in store for him.
