Hurting the one you love

Sometimes, no matter how hard you try, you always end up hurting the one you love.

19 Year old Skye lives with her boyfriend Dominic.
Every time he promises (every time he breaks that promise) to stop hurting her. When Skye meets the charming 20 year old Thomas, she finds herself laughing and enjoying time with somebody else for a change.
She soon discovers that there is more that one way to hurt the one you love...


4. Answering questions

"And this library book just could not have waited five seconds to tell me why you suddenly had to go?" Tom asked her the next day as they carried on with work, well as Skye did. He had stopped and was currently glaring at her. Skye had her back to him, but you can tell when somebody is watching you.

" Yes... It was a really good book, Im sorry..." She said, a lame excuse really. Tom seemed to think so as well judging by his snort. ' An uncharacteristic sign of annoyance, I must be a bad example on him ' Skye thought, vaguely aware that he was still watching her. 

" What book was it?" Tom broke her out of her reverie, by asking yet another question.

" Erm... sorry, it was... Hunger games. A few people recommended it to me, so I decided to give it a go..." Another lame excuse, if he believed that then he was stupid. Another snort from Toms direction proved that he was clearly not stupid.

" Right, and you just remembered you wanted to read it at the last minute? You simply could not have waited a few minutes?" They were back to the original question really, just phrased different. This time with an actual book title involved in the sentence. Skye was about to speak, but Tom cut across her ( She really must be a bad influence on this guy!)

" Look, don't even give me an excuse OK? I understand its your private life and everything but, this is the second time you have just suddenly got up and left. That is not even counting in the day you stood me up, for another reason that you cant say! Why can you not just say where you were?" Skye flinched at the anger in his voice. Why did she always do the wrong thing? Everything was all her fault, she always upset people to this point... Leaving them no option but to put her back into her place. This what Dominic had tried to explain to her all this time. She was a horrid person, anybody nice and she had to ruin them. Why could she not just accept people were nice to her and get on with it? She always had to put her foot in it and upset them first.

" Skye? Are you alright?" There was a voice near by her. It was speaking softly and quietly to her, quiet unlike the voice she was hearing in her head.


" Why do you always have to mess it up? You do this to me!" This voice was angry, it promised that something was about to happen... Something bad? 

" I thought I told you NO! What does no mean Skye?" It was waiting for an answer. Her mouth was bruised and bleeding, but she must answer. The blow to her head just now proved that answering was the better option.

" It means, no..." Her voice was weak and sounded like it was muffled by something. Th angry voice sounded calmer now though, a little.

" Well maybe next time you will think!" Was its final word before she opened her eyes.


"Skye! Skye, are you alright?" A face swam in and out of focus before her eyes. Skye blinked a few times, trying to see clearly. Tom was squatting in front of her. 

" Tom?" She whispered uncertainly, what if he disappeared and that angry voice returned? 

" Skye are you alright? Are you ill? Do you need to go to  first aid?" It was Tom, not the voice. She shook her head, just a flashback...

" No im fine... Im sorry by the way, I did not mean to upset you." Best to get that bit out there, she did not fancy a realistic view of her flashback anytime soon. Toms eyebrows puckered together in a frown.

" What are you talking about? You did not really do anything, I should not have gotten wound up! That was my fault Skye!" Tom said earnestly, sounding honest. Now Skye was frowning, but it was always her fault... Right? That is what that voice was saying, what her Dad had said, what Dominic said and what Tom should be saying... 

" Come on, its the end of the shift practically. I am going to give you a lift home. What is your address?"
