hood of old car

anyone else just lowkey wanna

  • wake up tangled in bed with the love of your life, looking at them with a goofy grin as they run their hands through your hair
  • bask in the soft summer sun while you put extra sugar in your tea and notice how even more ethereal they look in the light
  • stumble through cobblestone streets with them, laughing as you both duck into a forgotten ice cream parlour only you two know about
  • waste all of your quarters so they can hear their favorite songs on the jukebox while you just watch their contented grin from the diner booth
  • dance a clumsy waltz in the kitchen at 3am, shushing each other through muffled laughter as not to wake the neighbors, illuminated by the open mini-fridge
  • lay by their side on the hood of an old car in the middle of night, pointing out the stars that shine the brightest, even though the brightest star of all is right next to you
  • leave little notes on their windowsill, filled with endless words of affection and love, just so you can know that they smiled because of you
  • go strawberry-picking in the summertime, you bring a picnic basket, they wear a tucked in shirt the color of a honeybee, and everything is peachy
  • sneak into the community pool with them after hours, the moonlight dancing across the water as you both splash about, the faraway tune of an 80’s song playing on their ipod from the side of the pool
people are jerks, but not you (pietro maximoff)

[Summary: A married Negan takes an interest in his neighbors young daughter]

Pre-Apocalypse Negan x Anastasia 

A/N: *OC is of legal age/23* (Her name is pronounced like Ana-stah-seya not ana-stay-sia). I was inspired by a lot of the themed one shots and wanted to try doing one based on the Types of Love! It’s not the literal definition of each type of love, but more based on their broad meaning. Eros: is an erotic or sexual type of love –  SOO I know said I’d post my Jason chapter before this, but I am having such a struggle trying to finish it up & this was already done – will get Jason posted soon promise! The first few parts are super smutty, enjoy :D

Warnings: 18+, cheating, uhh swearing? the fact that it’s Negan smut? lol please respect the age tag **

The clear, blue sky enticed the people living in this small town. They all desired to dip into the cool atmosphere just as long as they were away from under the ruthless fist of the unforgiving sun. It’s been like this for a week now. Children ran around, jumping through sprinklers while their laughs echoed across the neighborhood. Women walked around in their sun hats covering their delicate skin with porcelain cream to shield their beauty from the heat’s grasp. The men hid away safely inside, lazily relaxing on their leather recliners while they sat in the comfort of their cool living room caves.

To be indoors was all Negan could think about as he sat outside replacing old parts of his motorcycle. He didn’t know that the weather would open up the ninth circle of hell when he decided to fix up his Harley. “Sweetie” he looked up to find Lucille walking over to him, holding a silver tray in her hands, wearing her favorite pale blue sundress which emphasized her glowing face. “I brought you some lemonade” she said, planting a kiss on his cheek.

This for @winchester-writes Birthday Drinking Challenge.  I chose Four Roses Bourbon and the prompt: “Can you help me take a shower?” (I played with the wording slightly. 


Tags are at the bottom.  As always, feedback is welcomed and appreciated.


“Happy birthday to me,” you say with a sigh as you sit on the edge of the bed and flip through the shitty basic cable programming on the motel TV.

The knock at the door pulls you out of your pity party. Cautiously, you pull back the curtain. As soon as you see who is at the door, you pull back the deadbolt and throw it wide open.

“DEAN!” You throw yourself into his arms. The elder Winchester laughs as he wraps his arms around you tightly. Pulling back from his embrace, you tilt your head to look up at him. “What are you doing here?”

“Did you think I’d forget your twenty-first birthday?” he says.

God, it’s good to see Dean. Really fucking good. Until you saw, you’d hadn’t realized just how much you’d missed him. You peer around his shoulder, looking expectantly for his brother.

“Sorry, kid. It’s just me,” he says apologetically.

“What? No, I’m so glad you’re here! Come in,” you say, stepping back. Dean steps in, surveying your current digs.  

“Are you hunting alone?” Dean asks with concern, you can hear it in his voice.

“I can handle myself,” you retort, automatically falling back into the role of younger kid, Dean was always the oldest. He was the one who told you and Sammy what to do, how to do it, and when to do it. You were the one that argued with him, the defiant one, the one who questioned his orders.

“No, hey,” Dean replies. “I know you can. Let’s not - I’m here to celebrate. Whaddya say we grab some dinner and I buy you your first legal drink?”

“I’d say it’s fitting, since you’re the one who gave me my first illegal drink,” you tease.

Dean laughs. “Oh yeah, that’s right. You still a lightweight?”

“Let’s find out,” you say, throwing him a wink.

vista cruiser // steve harrington

a/n: okay so because i love that 70’s show and stranger things so much, i decided to use my favorite scene and the most handsome character i know and mash them together. i love steve so much okay onto the imagine.

nancy and jonathan were quite possibly the most touchy couple seen by y/n so far. while y/n and steve sat in the front seat, the couple were going at it. y/n knew it was a bad idea to invite them to the drive in movies. especially knowing it’s “makeout point.” steve awkwardly sat in the passenger seat, looking at y/n whenever a squeak or moan erupted from the backseat. it was supposed to be a mark in their relationship. seeing as they’ve been friends for forever and they both know they like each other, this shouldn’t have been as hard as it was made out to be. tonight was a huge leap for steve since he’s only lightly pecked y/n. he was planning on getting hot and heavy but jonathan had ruined his groove.

“steve,” y/n said, barely audible over the grunts coming from jonathan. “can we talk? in private?” steve could tell she was irritated. nodding his head, he opened the door and slid out. y/n did the same but not before getting hit in the head with nancy’s shoe.

before you know it, steve and y/n were sitting on the hood of his old vista cruiser. the car was shaking violently as nancy and jonathon well… were… you know. y/n was laying on steve’s arm which happened to be around her neck.

“so um… nance and jonathon have certainly made themselves comfortable.” y/n giggled at steve’s quip while he chuckled along. “it’s a roomy car.” she added on. suddenly, steve propped himself up with his elbow.

“yeah, it is,” steve paused to look at y/n. the want in his eyes was beating, like a heartbeat of someone who’s anxious and scared. he liked her so much and didn’t want to mess whatever they had going up.

“you know, the bench seat in the vista cruiser…” steve brought down his lips to hers. the kiss was hard and fast. they grasped into each other like they were the only ones left on planet earth and if they were to let each other go, they’d die. one of y/n’s hands went to his neck and the other to the back of his head. desperate is one word to describe the makeout. they were desperate to get more of each other. young love does that to you.

“-is the same as what’s in the full-size pontiac catalina.” steve gasped after a short pause for air. desperate for more, y/n muttered a quick ‘thats intresting’ and brought his lips back down to hers. the mix of the intense shaking and the hard core makeout tumbling, y/n ended up a little too close to the side and accidentally fell of the car. both of their faces were red; mostly due to lack of air but partially due to embarrassment. the cars surrounding them were honking endlessly and shouting remarks like “good job harrington!” and “nice balance, y/l/n!”

steve looked down and locked eyes with the girl. soon-to-be his girl. he smiled and asked one simple question. one that’d y/n would never forget.

“wanna get outta here?”

Your name: submit What is this?


Dean Winchester.

 The man was like no other man you had ever met. He was smart, handsome, loving, you could go on forever with all of the characteristics you loved about the man, but you’d be here for a lifetime.

You’ve know Dean for your entire life. You were his next door neighbor in Lawrence. His mom was best friends with your mom for years before you and Dean were even an idea. Dean was older than you by six months, and for a while, those six months were pretty significant. The difference between the big kid swing and the baby swing. He would smirk at you while his mom would push him on the swing while your dad pushed you in the little one. Dean would constantly bring up how he was older to you when the two of you were kids.

 It stopped instantly when he lost his mom in the house fire. Dean’s dad was determined to find the thing that killed Mary, and your dad, who just happened to be John’s best friend, decided to set out with him. Your mom was going to go wherever your dad went. While the three of you stayed back in motels she would take care of you. Dean didn’t talk for awhile and even at that age, you could understand why. You would talk to him everyday, even if he wouldn’t say a word back. Sometimes he would smile softly at something you said, and that was enough to keep you going. After awhile, he came around, but most of all, he stuck to your side. He protected you.

If anybody ever asked what you did in your spare time, you would almost always tell them that you enjoyed driving. For you, driving was a giant stress reliever, just being out on the open road with Dean’s cassette tapes blaring through the radio was enough to make you forget about everything. You enjoyed staring out the window, allowing the world to fly by you in colorful blurs. Your hunting life seemed to disappear whenever you were in that car and for a brief moment, you felt normal.

After the particularly difficult hunts – the cases where innocents lost their lives, no matter how hard you tried – Dean would take you for a drive. The destination was usually unknown, and you would both drive until the early hours of the morning. Or until the Impala ran out of gas.

Sometimes, both you and Dean would blast the radio, belting out the lyrics to whatever song came on, other times, you would talk, about the hunt, about Sam or Cas, about each other…. And very rarely, you would both sit in complete silence. But it was the best way to spend your time, in that car with Dean.

Tonight, however, was incredibly different, the Winchester’s had found no hunt, and the bunker seemed a lot more alive than usual. Dean filled the Impala up with gas, before giving her a wash and cleaning out the garbage that hung around underneath the seats. He polished over the scratches and made sure there were no dents left unseen.

New Beginnings

Part one: Dean’s big move

(Au series Fbi agent Dean Winchester Teacher human Cas and Ghost hunter Sam) ~warnings cussing sadness fluff mentions of sex mentions of death Dean as an Ex Fbi agent troubled past~ Dean looked at all his bags he packed in the trunk of car. After being a hell of an agent for a number of years he was forced into retirement at the age of 38. He was on a special assignment taking down a drug ring he found out the leader of the ring was the only man he ever loved. He busted up the drug ring but not before Deans ex shot him in the hip. Dean spent months recovering now he walks with a permanent limp. His Ex was sentience to life in prison. “Damn it all after all the time I spent on the fucking force all I have to show for it is a limp and a gold watch. At least I’m still alive and I still have you baby. You can be the only love in my life. Well besides my baby brother.” He said as he ran his hand over the cars hood. Baby would be just an old car to some but to Dean she was his pride and joy. She was a black 1967 four door hardtop Chevy Impala. Beautiful to look at and fast too. She got him out of all kinds of bad scrapes. She got Dean and many Witnesses away from the bad guys. Dean drunk his morning coffee and ate a piece of pie as he drove down the road. He turned the radio on as Carry On My Wayward Son started to play. He tapped his fingers on the steering wheel to the beat of the song. Dean always did love classic rock. “ well baby will be in New Jersey soon I just hope that they all have a nice parking place for you. I know you’ve got me out of so many rough spots.” Dean said stopping at a red light. Secretly Dean longed to find love. Be it man or woman just someone who’d love him for him. He thought he found it with Crowley. He was charming sweet but also so badassed. He seemed so perfect but it was all a lie. The man of his dreams was a drug king pin. Dean shook his head clearing out his thoughts of the past. The light turned green he could see a small run down apartment building. He sighed a little as he pulled in. “Well baby welcome home.” Dean said as he saw a handsome man in a multi-colored turtleneck put his trash in a dumpster. Dean just watched him as he bent down to tie his shoe. Dean had no idea why he was so fascinated by this man. He was kind of an odd duck was that why he couldn’t take his eyes off. One thing Dean did know or at least he thought he knew. It couldn’t be love he was done with love. The strange man in the multicolored sweater walked towards the doors. “Hey Cas the ass how bout changing my F to an A?“ Asked a very tall well built young man as he jumped out of the bushes right in front of the man in the multi-colored sweater. “How bout no way in hell Scott. One you can call me Castile or professor only my friends can call me Cas. Two you get the grade you earn I don’t care if you are a football player who needs to pass my class in order to play next season. If you have tried talking to me Scott I may have helped you now stop being an assault and get out of my way.“ Cas growls as he tries to walk pass Scott. “ I thought you’d say that’s why I brought a few friends with me Cas the ass!!!” Scott shouted as he whistled five more tall guys ran out. They all jumped Cas and started to beat the shot out of him. One even kicked him in the head. Cas being bout half conscious tries to get away Scott pulls out a gun shoots Cas twice in the right side. Everything happened so fast Dean didn’t know for sure what was going on. He ran out of baby as fast as he could when he realized what was happening. His hip didn’t even bother him mostly because he didn’t have time to think about it. Dean took out his gun shot it in the air. “Get the Fuck out of here and leave that man alone. Unless you want shot in the fucking head!!!” Dean shouted as he leaned down to check Cas out. “Fuck you bitch I ain’t scared. My beef is with Cas the ass not you little bitch.” Scott said to Dean glaring at him. Dean shot right above his head and Scott ran off like striped assed ape. Dean checks for a pulse and finds a pretty strong one. He carefully picks Cas up and wishpers in his ear. “Cas I don’t know who you are but, you’re gonna be ok. I promise you and I won’t leave you till I’m sure your ok.” Dean said as he put Cas in the front passenger seat next to him. Dean didn’t know why he felt a connection to him but, he did know what happened to Cas wasn’t right. So he was goanna do everything he to make sure he was goanna be ok. One thing Dean knew for sure he wasn’t falling in love. Well at least that what he told himself. Dean floored baby and drove her like a bat out of hell . Cas was awake but he was in so much pain he was out of it. “ I gotta go to work tomorrow. If I don’t go to school they’ll pass him I just know it. I got leave ow I can’t go to the hospital.“ Cas panted out nearly above a whisper as he reached for the door handle. “Cas I’m Dean and you’ll be ok. You just need relax. I don’t think you’ll be going to school tomorrow you’ll be in the hospital. Look man you’ve been beat up badly and shot in the side twice. We’ll figure out something bout that punk who shot you. You need to relax cause your lucky to be awake right now.“ Dean said in a concerned tone. “But if i can’t make it in tomorrow they’ll pass him. Cause they’re won’t be time to ow find a sub. The principal would be the substitute teacher and he’s a big jock with no pride in ethics. Maybe I shouldn’t be a teacher because I care too much. Maybe I should of just changed his grade but, but then that would have been fair to all the other students who earned their grade. Oh I’ve never been in so much pain in my life and I feel so sleepy.” Cas said trying to keep his eyes open. “ Cas I haven’t known you for very long but I can tell you’re a damn good teacher. That you really care about kids and that’s good. It’s oh so good that you care a lot about you just need can learn to defend yourself. Please try to stay awake I know it hurts if you’ll be okay. Just stay awake please stay awake.” Dean said as he neared the hospital still driving fast. Dean pulled into the hospital just as Cas passed out from the pain. Dean picked him up carefully and ran him into the hospital. A couple of doctors took him from Dean. They rushed Cas back to surgery. Told Dean to wait in the waiting room. So Dean let out a sigh the waiting room wasn’t packed it was almost empty. Maybe if it was packed Dean would be more at ease. Dean sunk down in his seat he closed his eyes. Dean let his mind drift back to when he and Sam where kids. When Dean was 16 and Sam was 12 their mother Marry and father John were attacked and killed by a pack of werewolves. From that point on Dean tried to make sure his brother was well taken care when they were short on money and low on food Dean always made sure his baby brother had enough to eat even if that met not eating himself. Dean when he got older he became a Fbi agent to help people and Sam decided to hunt ghost werewolves and other supernatural creatures. Dean helps support Sam all he can with his business. Dean’s thoughts came crashing back to the present when Dean looked at his watch. It’s been a couple hours and Cas was still in surgery. “What the hell is wrong with me i don’t even know him. Let alone love him I could never love anyone again.“ He said low to himself. Dean got up and started to pace he rubbed his cell phone. Maybe he should call his brother Sammy. Sammy always knew what to say to calm Dean down. So he dialed Sam’s number and waited. “Hey big bro what’s up?” Sam answered with a yawn. “Not much im in the hospital but don’t panic I brought some one in a few hours ago.” Dean said still pacing. “Ok one stop pacing two I have to worry because if you spent that much time with him in the hospital it has to be a friend of ours. Because I knew you you don’t spend that much time in the hospital with someone you just brought there. Is he maybe your new love?” Asked Sam with a giggle. “No I just met him today he seems nice. Odd but nice he was ambushed by his students he’s been shot I don’t know. I guess I feel sorry for him.” Dean said finally sitting back down. A Dr came out “Mr Castile is awake and asking for you follow me.” “Sam I gotta go call you later.” Dean hung up and took a deep breath not knowing what to expect.

Rae of Sunshine- Chapter 3 Break You

Pairing: Eric/OC

Fandom: Divergent

Rating: M

Summary: Rae thought Amity was where she belonged. Even with her dark past fuming inside of her, she had always done her best to suppress it. With Choosing Day approaching she was confident in her decision to stay in Amity. That is until a certain Dauntless Leader came roaring into Amity’s gates. Once Eric has Rae in his sights he is willing to do anything to have her, even if that means breaking her and destroying the world she lives in.

word count: 3,553

The compound looked ghostly at night. Empty of all its happy go lucky worker bees and the sound of all their buzzing. The only sounds that could be heard now were the chirpings of the pesky grasshoppers and crickets that roamed around in the fields. The chirping seemed to grow louder and louder until it suddenly ceased. Almost like something had interrupted them while rustling through the thick lush of grass.

A dark shadowy figure glided through the fields, heading in the direct of the wall that kept the unknown out. The silhouette moved through the thick forest where it stopped at a very familiar spot. Rae’s old demolition site that had been abandon many years ago. It still contained all the shattered remnants of Rae’s soul, along with the old beat up car. The hooded figure stepped further into the opening of the location, unveiling her hood.

“Lovely night for a stroll isn’t it Johanna?”

Johanna was startled by the voice that came up from behind, causing her to suddenly jerk away from the hot breath on her neck. She peered into the glowing eyes staring back at her in anticipation for her to speak.

“Yes, it is. I’m glad it was nice enough for us to have our meeting you so urgently demanded. Now, what is it you want Kent?” Johanna said while straightening her back up.

“Oh come on Johanna. Don’t you like our little chats we have? Okay fine I’ll get to the point. He’s not happy with Amity lately. First the shortage of food, now Dauntless patrolling around Amity. He’s starting to become very displeased with your performance and feels like maybe Amity needs a little reminder.” He threatened.

“No! No please! We’re doing the best we can, but we have to have enough food for all the other factions, not just the Factionless. It’s been hard reach your demands. As for Dauntless, there’s nothing I can do. Their leader is growing suspicious. Please just give us more time. We gave you more than enough food last time.”

“Johanna, he’s been more than generous to Amity. I mean he’s made sure to keep the chaos out of your compound. Remember he’s the one keeping Amity from burning to the ground. And the only way to keep him satisfied is to give him your contribution to our cause. The more time given the more desperate our people become and you should know desperate people do desperate things.” He warned.

“I know. I know what your people are capable of. Please just tell me what I need to do.”

“It’s simple. Get rid of Dauntless. Give us our food you owe and then wait until your services are needed again. See easy-peasy-lemon-squeezy. That is unless you decide to be uncooperative or Dauntless starts to cause us problems. Then we’ll have to take some affirmative action people will start to get hurt, go missing, burn, but you already know that don’t you?”

Johanna swallowed the malice of his words, knowing his threats we’re real. “I understand. I’ll have your supplies ready.” She declared.

Kent smiled at her submission and chuckled. “Well, I’m sure he’ll be happy to hear that. See the five factions have their system of operations and we have ours. You have a goodnight, Johanna. I can’t wait till our next meet.” He said slipping into the darkness of the forest.

Johanna narrowed her eyes as he disappeared into the murky woodland. Her mind was running in a million different directions. How was she going to get enough food together in time for the factionless on top of everyone else Amity had to feed? How was she going to get Eric and his Dauntless regime out of Amity? Did she just make a deal with the Devil?

Rae’s mornings usually ran the same. She’d typically give herself an extra five minutes of sleep, which would result in her tardiness. She was lucky it was her day off considering the amount of sleep she got last night. The events from yesterday had her head spinning all night long. Rae wiped the sleep from her eyes and rolled out of bed. She needed to get ready for rehearsals with Joshua. Rae ran through her closet before settling on her favorite yellow sundress. She moved to the bathroom to brush her teeth and quickly ran her fingers through her loose curls. Stepping into the kitchen she could already smell the sweet apple cinnamon aroma in the air. Two apple turnovers and her peace tea were appropriately waiting for her along with her tea. After devouring her breakfast, she threw on her sandals and was on her way out the door.

Walking through Amity, Rae noticed a change in the atmosphere. The genuine smiles that walked around the compound seemed a lower than usual. This was probably due to the fact that Dauntless were hovering through the crowd. While most Dauntless moved swiftly to their assigned sentry duty. Some packs lingered around the dome, taunting any Amity that walked by. As Rae neared the dome, she knew she wouldn’t go unscathed from their crude comments.

“Fuck! The guys back at home were right on one thing about Amity. The women here look fucking delicious. I mean look at those hips! Hey baby where you going?” one called out.

Some whistling followed suit but Rae just ignored their comment and moved to walk in before being stopped by a familiar face.

“Well Goodmorning Sugar. I’ve been thinking about you I wanted to get to know you a little better but you left in such a hurry last night I didn’t get to. How about tonight we meet up for some cherry picking? Hmm, what do you say?” Luke proposed as he blocks her access.

“I’m afraid I’ll have to decline your offer as Dauntless should be gone by this afternoon and I wouldn’t want to cause you anymore insoluble feelings that I can’t and would never return. Now if you’ll excuse me.” Rae quipped as she pushed passed Luke. She didn’t bother looking back at his face as she pretty much had a good visual of what it probably looked liked.

As Rae entered she was astonished by all the decorations that were already up. There were elegant paper lanterns streaming all around. She could envision how beautiful it was going to look at night lite up. She noticed an array of ribbons and flowers that also adorned the walls. It probably was a good thing that Joshua was helping out with the decoration as it looked like a lot of work was put into decorating the dome.

Rae snapped out of her mesmerized state when she heard the loud banging of hammers. She looks over to the center where the tree stood and saw Joshua and another man working on the stage. Rae started walking towards the stage before being stopped by Cara.

“Oh, my gosh Rae. How are you? What do you think of the decorations? They were all my ideas. Their way better than last years don’t you think?” Cara jabbered.

“Oh yeah. It looks really good Cara, you guys did a great job. I just came to see if Joshua wanted to go rehearse for a little bit.”

“I don’t know about that, we still have a lot to do. I’m sure your little song can wait.” Cara said. Rae raised her eyebrow at Cara’s comment. She knew Cara expected for her to roll over but Rae wasn’t about to let that happen not when she and Joshua were finally starting to reignite their relationship.

“Well, why don’t we just go ask Joshua what he wants to do.” Rae declared as she brushed passed Cara. Cara trailed not far behind Rae. Joshua looked up from hammering to see Rae smiling at him.

“Rae, what are you doing here?” Joshua said surprised. “I thought we could rehearse a little since we didn’t yesterday. Is that okay?” Rae questioned innocently. Cara was behind her with her hand firmly on her hips not looking too pleased with Rae.

“Of course! I’d love to. Besides we’re almost done here anyway, I’ll grab my guitar and we can go practice.” Joshua declared while jumping off the half finished stage.

Rae smiled at the victory she just won against Cara, “Great!”

Rae enjoyed warming up with Joshua it gave them time to joke around and laugh. It was blissful to Rae, she felt like Joshua was the only one to make her feel truly happy. That’s all she wanted with Joshua to be happy with herself and her life.

“The decorations look really great Joshua. That collar Cara has on you must be working.” Rae giggled as he tuned his guitar. “Collar? What collar? All I did was help decorate.” Joshua stated.

“Oh come on. It’s obvious Cara wants you. That’s why she pulled you away from me. To keep you all to herself.”

“Rae, no one could ever pull me away from you.”

“Do you really mean that?” Rae asked as Joshua leaned in inches from her face still smiling. “I do.” He said. Their lips were millimeters apart when the doors suddenly burst open.

“Well well well. What do we have here?” Luke said with a pack of soldiers behind him. Rae turn blood shot red from the intrusion. First embarrassment came over her but was quickly turned into anger, but she knew she needed to contain it for Joshua’s sake.

“We’re rehearsing if you don’t mind. Please leave we need to practice.” Rae defended.

“Well if that’s how you practicing mind if I chime in,” Luke said walking towards the two of them.

Joshua stood up in front of Rae coaxing her behind him. Joshua puffed out his chest to try to intimidate Luke but his efforts were futile as Luke met his stance. “Look we don’t want any problems,” Joshua stated. Luke grabbed Joshua by the collar of his shirt pulling him dangerously close. “Well, then you should be causing any.” Luke barked. “Let him go!” Rae yelled as she tried to pry Luke’s hands from Joshua’s shirt. Without any effort at all Luke’s pushed Rae away with more force than he should have, causing her to hit the floor. She hesitated for a split second and then grabbed Joshua’s guitar.

“You know what really bugs me about Amity? Hmmm? Pussy men like you.” Luke spat as he reared his fist back ready to inflict pain. His actions were prevented when a guitar bashed the back of his head. Luke doubled back holding his head with his hands in pain.

“Motherfucker! You bitch!” he screamed.

Everyone in the room was in shock by the little Amity’s actions even Rae, herself. The look of terror came over her face when she realized what she had done. Before she could even run the dauntless soldiers were already restraining her arms. She screamed and struggled in their firm hold. A stream of tears started staining her face as she looked to Joshua who was mortified by the scene. She kept screaming his name as they dragged her out of the room wondering what their plans were for her next.

She was placed in Johanna’s office, which was unoccupied when they got there. Rae was still trembling, thinking about her punishment she would face for striking a soldier. ‘What would they do to her? What would Eric do to her?’ She thought. Rae regretted not being able to control her rage but she couldn’t just stand by watch Luke pummel Joshua like that. ‘Oh god! Joshua! He saw everything she did. What was she going to do now?’ she thought.

Rae was pulled from her thoughts when she heard the door behind her fly open. She didn’t look back to see who it was she wanted to make as little eye contact as possible. By the sound of heavy boots hitting the floor, she already knew who it was. Eric was silent as he made his way to the desk. As he sat down he kept quiet and only grinned at Rae. After a minute or two he finally began to speak.

“Well sunshine it seems you just can’t stay out of trouble, can you? But I must say I was rather surprised when I heard you assaulted one of my men.”

Rae didn’t say anything, she couldn’t even look at him after hearing his words. She thought back to last night and what had happened between them. Rae came to the conclusion that, that probably didn’t help her situation. “You know, I knew you were different from the others. I could sense it, anyone in a five hundred mile radius could. You can act like your all about peace and harmony, but face it Sunshine you’re just like me, full of rage and violence.” He sneered.

“I am nothing like you!” she cried. “One of your men attacked my friend.”

“And who was this friend?”

“It doesn’t matter, the point is he was about to attack my friend and so my instincts just kicked in and I hit him with a guitar!”

Eric couldn’t help but laugh, “If that’s not a Hippie attack I don’t know what is. Did you at least try to stop him with your ‘flower power’?”

“I did! He pushed me causing me to crash to the floor. I probably have bruises now!” Rae defended.

Eric demeanor changed after he heard about Luke pushing Rae. More importantly, he thought about how Luke had his hands on Rae. He was the only one who could touch. She didn’t know this but she would soon enough. Before Eric could further his interrogation Johanna burst through the door.

“Rae! Oh, my goodness are you okay? Joshua came and got me and told me what happened.” Johanna breathlessly said.

“Joshua is it?” Eric said getting confirmation on Rae’s ‘friend.’ He would be watching Joshua very closely now. Rae kept her head down and fiddled with her hands.

“Eric! What is the meaning of this interrogation? She has done nothing wrong. You have no authority when it comes to Amity and our punishments.” Johanna claimed.

“I never said she was being interrogated. I just needed to get her side of the story and she has assaulted one of my soldiers. So since this involves Dauntless I have the authority to choose how to deal with this.” He stated.

“Eric they were just getting ready for the festival coming up this won’t happen again. Besides Dauntless is leaving today you have more important things to deal with than a small Amity incident.” Johanna said hoping he would drop the punishment and leave with his Dauntless army.

“As it turns out Dauntless will be extending their stay here in Amity.” He answered.

Rae felt her stomach flip, that meant more Dauntless, more Luke, More Eric. Her tears silently ran down her face as she looked to Johanna for some type of comfort.

“Under who’s orders?” she asked. “Mine. Is that a problem?” he question. “Of course not everyone is welcomed here,” Johanna said trying to seem calm by his answer.

“Good. I’m so glad I’ll be able to attend the festival. You know how much Dauntless loves a good party.” He said cheerfully as he got up to exit the room. “Oh and don’t think you won’t face any type of punishment Sunshine. You will, I just want to give the type of punishment you deserve. And don’t worry about Luke I’ll take care of him.” He promised as he left the room.

Rae felt her whole world crashing around her. Johanna kneeled down in front of her and tried to stop her tears that kept pouring down her cheeks. “Calm down Rae. It’s okay everything will be okay.” Johanna hummed.
“No, it won’t! Dauntless won’t leave. I can’t take much more of this. Johanna, I need a stronger peace remedy. Please! I won’t survive without it. The real me will come out and I can’t have that happen. I might hurt someone like I did today. Please, I need it! Please” She begged.

“Shhh. Okay. Okay, I’ll get you more. Don’t worry I’ll take care of it.” Johanna said holding Rae trembling hands.

Eric stalked his way to the medical station to see Luke. He was infuriated that he thought he had the right to touch Rae after what had happened back at Dauntless. He needed to send Luke a clear message stating to never ever touch what is his. He found Luke doubled over hold an ice pack to the back of his head. He stood in front of Luke looking down at him like he was the lowest of the lows.

“You know I don’t know what’s more disappointing. The fact that you got taken down by a little Amity, a girl for that matter or that you still haven’t learned your lesson from last time.”

“Last time?”

Eric swiftly grabbed Luke’s head bring him down making contact with Eric’s knee. A burst of sheer pain went through Luke as his nose connected to Eric’s knee. Eric then brought him up to his level shoving him against the hall. Blood trickled from Luke’s nose splattering on Eric’s hands. As it was Eric’s style, he wrapped his hands around Luke’s neck cutting off his air supply.

“I’m only going to say this once so listen carefully. If you ever touch her again, I’ll fucking cut off your hands and make you wear them as a necklace.” He threatened. “Do I make myself clear or do you need a little help understanding?”

“No! No! I understand I’ll stay away from her! I swear!” Luke screamed. Eric threw Luke to the ground and continued to wipe his blood on the sides of his pants. “Good. Someone come clean this fucker up!” he commanded as he walked away.

After Johanna promised to get Rae a stronger peace remedy. Rae made her way home and was met by Joshua who was waiting for her. He ran to her and took her into his arms. She didn’t cry and embraced his warm, caring arms.

“Rae I’m so glad you’re okay. What happened? Will you be punished? I wish I could have stopped them. I’m so sorry, Rae.”

“I’m okay. Eric hasn’t made his decision on my punishment yet. Did you tell Poppy what happened?”

“No I’ve only told Johanna, but I can’t say the same for the other Dauntless soldiers that were there.” He exclaimed. Rae looked defeated in that moment word traveled fast through the factions it didn’t matter which one you belonged to everyone knew everyone’s business.

“Look, Joshua, what you saw today it… Well, it…”

“It doesn’t matter. I should have stepped up more. Maybe if I had you wouldn’t have had to do that. I promised you I would protect you and the first sign of danger I failed.” He confessed.

“No Joshua you didn’t fail. You could never fail. Your one of the most important person in my life.” Rae said. Her words warmed him. Her brought her in putting his forehead against hers. They stayed like that for a while until they were interrupted by a dominating voice.

“Move along Amity,” Eric commanded causing Rae to step back in fear. He knows who Joshua is now, his name, his face. Rae’s worse nightmare was now a reality. Joshua stood there and looked at Rae. He knew who Eric was and knew his words shouldn’t be taken lightly, but he also didn’t want to leave Rae.

“It’s okay Joshua. You should go. Don’t worry about me, I’ll see you tomorrow to practice.” Rae assured him.

Eric stepped closer to Joshua, “Move along flower boy.” Joshua swallowed whatever he was feeling and stepped away from Eric moving towards Rae. In fear of what Eric would do she stepped back a yelp “Goodnight Joshua. Please just go.” Defeated Joshua said goodnight and turned away from Rae. He walked passed Eric who was grinning at the rejection. “Goodnight Joshua.” Eric sneered. Joshua ignored Eric’s sarcasm and made his way down the road.

“You don’t have to be so mean you know. He wasn’t doing anything wrong.” She snide.

“Oh but he was. He was touching you and he should know he shouldn’t touch things that don’t belong to him.”

“Fuck you! I don’t belong to you. I’m not your property.”

“You need to watch your mouth sunshine get this through your head sunshine you belong to me and I don’t like other people touching what’s mine. And if you don’t understand that yet, understand this, if I see him touching you again well use your imagination.” He warned as he caressed her cheek. He ran his thumb over her bottom lip. She flinched at his touch and tried to move away but his hold on her jaw was too strong that when she tried to move she was in pain.

“God I’m going to have so much fun with your punishment.” He said calmly as he dropped his hand from her face. “What are you going to do to me?” Rae asked quivering.

Eric only smiled and turned to walk off leaving her to her own horrific thoughts. She almost couldn’t hear him but it was clear what he said.

“Break you.”
