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...


9. You lie

The next day Skye awoke to the sound of the doorbell ringing. She attempted to get up, but an arm was holding her locked in place. Looking up, and tasting bile, Skye saw Dominic was laying next to her with his arm slung over her waist. His snores rumbled from his chest as she gazed up at him. The ringing persisted, the pauses between each ring growing shorter. A sign that frustration was on the other end. Skye looked at the door, and looked back at Dominic, his face scrunching up in annoyance at the noise. A subconscious act, if whoever it was carried on then Dominic would wake up in a foul mood. 

That made her mind up, she slid out from under his arm carefully. Pulling on a dressing gown she made her way downstairs. When she opened the door, her heart leapt violently against her ribs in shock. 

" Skye- What  happened to your face?" Tom demanded immediately, ever straight to the point. Unlike Dominic and his whole musical number last night. 

"Whats wrong with it?" Skye asked, puzzled. Tom looked at her with analytically.Flipping his hair out of his eyes again, in the way that made her heart splutter every time. She backed inside a little, glancing at the mirror in the entrance, her face was red and had fingermarks on her neck. Angry red mars.

" Oh, that's nothing... Listen... Its not a good time right now Tom. Erm..." Skye was distracted by the sound of footsteps coming downstairs. Tom tried to look past her into the house.

" Is somebody with you?" Tom questioned her. Skye was bout to answer when another voice spoke up, as its arm snaked around her waist again. The fingers of which exactly fit the marks on her neck.

" Hello, Thomson right?" Dominic spoke, ignoring Toms explanation that his name was Tom, Dominic looked down at Skye then back at Tom.

" Im afraid we are rather busy at the moment Tom. Perhaps You should leave." 

'Please leave!' Skye thought in her head, yet most of her was half hoping he would stay. Dominic never hit in front of others, he never did anything in front of others...

" Skye? I thought you said Dominic left?" Tom sounded a little hurt. Probably because he would now think she had gone running back to Dominic.

" Yes, Skye can be rather selfish. She sees something she wants, and she gets it. I myself felt rather annoyed last time when she tried to do the same thing on me mate." Dominic said, a edge of hurt in his voice. He always was a good actor. " However," Here he heaved a sigh " I have decided to try again... For the sake of the baby." He patted her stomach, appearing to do so absently. Though he grinned widely when he saw Toms eyes follow his hand.

Skye turned away feeling sick, tears misting her eyes. 


All of it was lies, she was not pregnant, and Dominic would never do something even if she was. It was not in his nature. 

He did not love her. 

Maybe never had.

What was she doing here?


"Im not pregnant." Skye mumbled to him, still not facing him. As she wiped her eyes.

" What was that darling?" Dominic asked sweetly, though Skye knew his eyes would be a different story. Turning around she looked at him fully. His thickly muscled body, with his yellowing teeth and his stale drink aroma. 

" I said im not pregnant. Your lying." It was an effort not to allow her voice to shake. Dominic glared at her. 

" You mean you lied to me? You told me when you came to find me at midnight last night, that you were pregnant. You said you needed me here!" He was shouting now. Skye had always gone along with his story. His side of events. He was the one who chose how it happened, and she was supposed to back him up.

" I never came to find you, I came home from the party with Tom and you were sat in the living room, you came back." Her fist was shaking now, it had always been Dominic. She could see it now. 

He was not attractive, he was wrong about her. Skye never did anything wrong, she had always stood by him and tried to get him help.

Dominic was now practically growling. Sykes heart began to beat fast, as though he had forgotten that they were not alone, Dominic raised his hand...

" I have not done anything you lying cow! You did thi-" Skye felt the hand slap across her cheek. In the same place he had before. It stung and jerked her head backwards. The room seemed to be spinning. This had been a bad idea...

All of this seemed to finally jerk Tom back to his senses, he began shouting at Dominic. 

Everything was happening in a blur now...

The world was going dark, it was fading. Or maybe Skye was... 

Tom was saying something about Dominic could get locked up for that.

Dominic ran out the door...

A pair of hands lifted her up, a voice called her name. Everything was too much, Skye felt as though she was running through water, everything growing fainter...
