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...


5. Trouble

Skye froze after giving the address, hoping she had not just given it to Tom. His triumphant expression proved that she had though. She had not been thinking straight and had just blurted it out. Dominic did not work, he was sure to be in. Maybe she could play it up and escape to first aid. Tom could not stay there with her all day, she could probably make it home alone. Skye knew it was not an illness that she had, but it might be her only option. 

" Hey, erm... Tom, I really do feel a little ill. I think I should just maybe go to first aid." She said. Tom shook his head in disbelief.

" You just said you were alright. Can you please just tell me what is going on Skye?" He begged. Skye shook her head.

" Nothing, im just not feeling very well!" She lied, Skye had never been any good at lying. Hopefully Tom was not good at sorting the truth from lies. " Why dont you just drop me off at the infirmary?" She suggested helpfully. Tom shook his head, his flicking lightly in his eyes as he did so.

" You need to make an appointment for that first, I will drop you off at home you can ring them from their if you still feel ill. Which I doubt you actually do..." Were all men so forceful? Maybe he was just like Dominic, maybe he was not so perfect either. Maybe everybody was like this, everything a facade. Nothing the truth, until you knew them. By then it was normally to late. 

With no options left, Skye considered making a run for it. Not being stupid, she knew he would catch up to her. Not even slightly athletic person, and currently still feeling rather woozy, Skye knew that he was going to catch up to her. Still she ran, and he caught her of course. She barely even cleared ten meters before he took hold of her hand from behind, forcing her to a stand still. Feeling herself creeping towards hyperventilation, a sure to make him more alarmed and not let her go, she wheeled around to face him.

"Look just let me go Tom! I need to go, im sorry but... I... You see..." Sighing she gave up on the excuses. Looking away from his beautiful eyes. A perfect blue, similar to a sky blue in fact...

And that is when Tom kissed her. Not in any way a sensual or demanding kiss. Yet still a kiss, and Skye had kissed him back. After all maybe this was what a kiss was supposed to be. Two people, actually doing a sign of love together. She did not love Tom though... Did she...? So she when they broke apart, one thought entered her mind. One word, one name. It changed the way she was feeling about the kiss.


" I have to go home, my boyfriend will be waiting..." She whispered, to her intense surprise Tom dropped her hand immediately. The speed in which he did so made her think of somebody recoiling from a poisonous spider. Which maybe she was, after all she had hurt him first. All he had ever tried to do was be nice and, just like she did with Dominic, Skye had thrown it back in his face. Not just rejecting it, adding a lethal wound with it.

" Boyfriend...?" Tom spoke in a quiet voice, not even angry. That made Skye feel even worse, his voice was dead and empty. The kind of voice an emotionless robot spoke in.

"Skye?" That voice was familiar to her, it should be after it had shouted so often. It belonged to Dominic. For now it was not angry, it was merely asking a question. At least that was one good thing, everything else seemed determined to go wrong.

Looking away from Tom, Skye turned her eyes on Dominic. " Dominic this Tom, he works the shift here alongside me. Tom this Dominic... My boyfriend." The words seemed to hang there for a lifetime. In reality it could not be more than a few seconds. 

" Nice to meet you Tom, as Skye said I am her boyfriend. Dominic" There was just a hint of emphasis on the word ' Boyfriend ' He wrapped his arm around her waist. His fingernails digging into the skin at the side of it. A smile was on his lips as he faced her, showing love and adoration. Skye still flinched though...

His eyes were cold and hard, like steel that refused to bend. 

Unforgiving and promising a consequence...
