by Robyn. Alys has decided that it's better to smoke cigarettes than talk to her friends about the stress in her life. Her best friend, Alex, who is like a big brother to her, finds out about the cigarettes and does whatever he can to make sure she never smokes again.
Alys stopped and glanced around before sighing and leaning up against the tree. She checked around her again then fished her cartoon of cigarettes out of her pocket, she pulled one out and glanced around again, feeling a little paranoid but she was sure someone was watching her. Shaking her head she pulled her lighter out and lit the cigarette and took a deep drag, she swore she could feel the smoke going through her veins and calming her, allowing her body to relax.
“So this is your new therapy huh? This is what you do instead of coming to speak to me?” Alex asked.
Alys jumped in shock and whirled around to stare at Alex in disbelief. “Jeez Alex! You spying on me or something?” Alys tried to deflect.
Alex shook his head. “Nice try lil sis, but smoking? Seriously? Are you actively trying to kill yourself?” Alex asked demandingly. He plucked the fag out of Alys’ hand and dropped it on the floor stamping it out.
“What the hell Alex? I was smoking that! They are bloody expensive and it’s not easy to get your hands on them if you’re not 18,” Alys returned. “Oh and quit with the little sister crap, we are not related and frankly this obsession you have with me is fucking creepy, you’re 18 I’m 15, go find someone your own age,” Alys snapped.
