WHO: Mairead O'Sullivan [NPC] and Clio (bits of Nicholas)
WHEN: Tuesday night
WHERE: Clio's house
It was understandable that her parents had to deal with a lot of stress since moving from Ireland to America. It was even understandable that sometimes they didn't deal with the stress in the best ways. What Mairead had trouble dealing with was the increasing amount of time her parents spent screaming at each other.
Spending time with Patrick during the day helped, though Mairead had never spoken about her parent's situation with him. It gave her a chance to have some solace, but the nights got worse and worse until Mairead hear glass shattering and her mother screaming. She froze and her eyes widened and for a moment she didn't even breathe. When her there was another crash and her father swore, Mairead was sure neither of them were too injured.
She was also sure she didn't want to stick around. Instead she grabbed her coat and climbed out of her window and down the fire escape to the alleyway below. It was dark and probably not really all that safe for a fifteen year old girl to be wandering in the city alone. Being at home right now wasn't all that safe at the moment either. Not wanting to just aimlessly walk around the city by herself, Mairead headed somewhere she knew she'd he safe.
In twenty minutes she was knocking on Clio's door and hoping that nine thirty wasn't too late to show up.
