ahead and unpack Settle in I got work to do up at the house Well go in the morning and get you registered for school, Nonna said as the pinched frown on her face that had been there since she picked me up at the bus station an hour ago, only grew intense Dont go nowhere You hear me Stay put until I get back I managed a nod I hadnt been able to say than thanks to her since Id seen her The last time Id seen my nonna was two years ago when shed saved up enough money to come visit us in Little Rock She was a large part of my life There had been times in my childhood that when I thought no one else loved me, I knew she did Nonna never let me down Seeing the obvious disappointment in her gaze now was hard to swallow But I hadnt expected anything different It was a look I had gotten used to I saw it in everyones eyes these days when they looked at me No one believed me Not my mother, certainly not my stepfather, or the police officer whod arrested me Not even my brother No one Which meant my nonna wasnt going to believe me either Sure shed agreed to take me in when my mother packed my bags and left them for me on the front porch the day I was released from the correctional center Id spent the last six months in I had nowhere to go, and calling my mothers mother was the only thing I knew to do Id lived with Nonna until the summer I turned eleven Her home was the only real home Id ever known My mother had finally decided she could take care of me, the child shed had at fifteen and left with her mother the day she graduated from high school three years later When my brother, Chance, had been eight, his father had finally married my mother She wanted to bring me into the family Problem was, I never really fit My younger brother was adored by his father, and I seemed to always be in the way I kept to myself until I turned fifteen and everything started to change Answer me, Willa, Nonna demanded, snapping me out of my thoughts Yes, maam, I replied quickly I didnt want to upset her She was all I had left Nonnas expression softened then she nodded Good Ill be back soon as my work at the big house is done, she added, then turned and walked away, leaving me in the bedroom that had been mine for the first eleven years of my life I had been happy here I had felt wanted here But Id messed that up, too I was good at messing up If there was a wrong decision to be made, I managed to make it I intended to put that in the past I wanted to get back the girl I had been once The girl whose grandmother was proud of her The girl who didnt act out for attention The attention I had gotten from my mother hadnt been the kind of attention I wanted In the end Id lost her She wanted nothing to do with me Id killed any love she had for me Once the door closed behind Nonna, I sank down onto the twin bed that was covered in a quilt I knew my nonna had made herself She loved quilting in her free time Which wasnt very often She worked six days a week for the Lawtons They let her off on Sunday so she could go to church and clean her own house Which happened to be a cottage on the edge of their property Shed been the Lawtons housecleaner and cook for as long as I could remember My mother had grown up in this house This room I was in had been hers once too Even though Id been the product of a mistake my mother had made, my childhood here had been a happy one My nonna had given me the love and protection my teenage mother hadnt known how to give And then there were the boys Gunner Lawton and Brady Higgens had been my two best friends Gunner lived in the big house with his parents and older brother, Rhett From the time he and Brady had caught me in his tree house playing with his army men when we were four, we had been inseparable I had been watching the boys for weeks go up into that tree house from my front yard at the cottage Id wanted to know what was up there My curiosity had given me my first real friends When I had left with my mother, it was at the time things had started to change with all three of us I wasnt just one of the guys any I was a girl, and things had begun to get awkward Back then I had thought I was in love with Brady Hed been popular and had a smile that once made my heart flutter wildly when directed at me I thought then hed be the only boy Id ever love Id left soon after my feelings had started to grow Now I could hardly remember what either boy looked like There had been other boys in my life since them Only one made a mark on me Only one of them I had loved Carl Daniels I thought hed be my forever Until he decided that sleeping around with other girls was acceptable when I wouldnt give him my virginity in the back of his car He had proven to me that I really couldnt trust anyone Loving someone meant getting hurt My mother and Carl had both shown me how vulnerable love could make you I wouldnt make that mistake again It seemed like another lifetime now Gunner and Brady were the safe and happy part of my past that I often dreamed about at night when I needed to escape my reality My life here would be very different from the way it had once been I had made a mistake that I would never truly pay for The guilt and regret would be my companions throughout my life And being rejected by your own mother wasnt easy to accept It was a wound that went so deep I doubted Id ever get over it I stood up and walked over to the mirror and studied myself My mothers dark blue eyes looked back at me The straight blond hair that hit just below my shoulders was nothing like her red locks I imagined I got my hair color from my father A man I didnt know She would never even tell me his first name She never even told my nonna Once she had said it was because he couldnt be a father to me She was protecting me and him with her silence I never understood that I still didnt I reached up and ran my fingers over my bare earlobe The piercings that once framed my ear were almost all gone now Id not been able to wear them in the correctional center I had gotten used to not having to deal with them, and I didnt desire to put them back Even without them, I was so different from the girl who had left here six years ago.Praise for Until Friday Night Tender, honest, and achingly real Until Friday Night captures the intensity of first love, the power of friendship, and the pain of growing up This book has it
