Getting To Know You

A Chapter by Careless Whispers ._.

intro that is introducing one of the characters, Caiden


Caiden Horton

Age: 15

From: Clay, Iowa

    My mom burst into my room, waking me up instantly. "Caiden!" She shouted at me. "Get up! Get dressed! Get packing!"

"What?" I muttered, half asleep still "Why?"

  "Just do it! You have 15 minutes!" And with that, she slammed the door. I got up, stretched, and checked the time. 8:00 AM.

   Nice mom I thought. I Zombie Walked over to my dresser and pulled out a purple t-shirt and slipped it on. I had my black basket-ball shorts on so I didn't worry about my pants. My mom burst back into the room with a medium sized, brown suitcase in her arms. "Caiden hurry!" she yelled and threw the suitcase onto my bed.

   "Mom, whats the hurry?" I asked but she ignored me and slammed the door shut. I packed like I was gonna be gone for about 3 or 4 days. You know the drill; pants, shirts, underwear, cologne, my notebook (to write songs), my guitar pick (just because). I started to walk out the door, but-not watching where I was going-I tripped over my guitar, stubbing my toe.

  "Fu ck," I muttered. And I bent over to grab my foot, and then-me being me-fell onto my drum set, almost breaking it.

  I grabbed the suitcase, zipped it up, and ran down stairs to see my mom and little brother, Kenny still dressed in their pajamas. "Mom," I said and held the suitcase up to display it like 'I'm done'

  "Good," she said. "Go brush your teeth and do your hair. And HURRY! You only have about 8 minutes!"


"GO!!" She commanded.

  I dropped the suitcase and ran into the bathroom and did what she said. I came out 5 minutes later and stuttered to get the words out "M-Mom...why aren't yo-you guys getting dress-dressed?"

"Because sweetie," A knock came to the door. "Perfect timing," she muttered. "Kenny! Come here!"

She opened the door and two guys standing there: One in a suit and sunglasses, the other one in a casual red t-shirt and tan pants, muscles bulging out of his t-shirt. The guy in the suit looked at me "Caiden Horton?"

  "Uhh....yes..." I was so confused and tired and hungry.

"Kenny say good-bye to your brother...he's not going to be with us for a while..." my mother spoke sadly to my little brother as she hugged me. She kissed me on the forehead. "Bye sweetie" she sounded like she was crying, "and good luck" she added.

I looked at Kenny, and he looked super sad. "Bye Caiden!" he cried and hugged me tight. "I love you." he said.

  "I love you too Little Bro. Remember: Stay Strong." I said and hugged him closer. He let go of me with tears in his eyes.

  "Lets go boy." Mr. Muscles Guy said. He grabbed my suitcase and escorted me out of my house, across the lawn, down the drive-way and into a metallic van. I sat in the back, where no one could hear me...

I was all alone. I pulled my phone out of my pocket and texted my mom 'I Love You' for the last a long time
