My life has been filled with promises, promises that couldn't be kept.
Being abused caused me to stay mute..
But can he change that?


33. Stay with me.

Brent's POV 

I rubbed my eyes as I tried to sit up straight. I groaned as I felt a piercing pain jolt through my body. Jailene's eyes grew bigger as she reached for my side and helped me up. I stared at her face; her pink cheeks, brown eyes, and chapped lips. "Brent." She whispered. I took her hand in mine. "You're here." I needed to make sure it wasn't a dream. "Of course I'm here," She looked back and smiled, "We're all here." I coughed with a smile on my face, "Mom, dad." My mom, on the verge of tears, came up to me and moved my hair from my face. "Brent!" Benry and Mike chirped in unison. "Hey, little mans." I ruffled Benry's hair. I was surrounded by people and I enjoyed it, don't get me wrong but I want to be alone with Jailene. "Whew wee," I laughed, "I'm pretty hungry!" Everyone looked at me and smiled. "I guess beauty sleep is what you needed, right?" I nodded and gave them a huge smile. My eyes caught Jailene's and locked. I have to talk to her; tell her the truth. She would hate me. She wouldn't want to see me. "We'll go get you something," My mother said her both hands on both twins. "What would you like?" Jailene. The thought was like a whisper, but it was the first thing that came into my mind. "Anything really. I'm just really hungry!" I responded. Dad nodded and everyone left the room. Everyone but Jailene. Here's my chance. "Hey pretty lady." I grabbed her hand and pulled her closer. I don't want to throw it in her face. "Hi handsome." She replied. I smiled, "Your voice is so beautiful, Jailene." Her blush said it all. "We need to talk." Her voice quivered when she said that and my heart skipped a beat. She knows. Oh god she knows. I nodded while biting my lip. Her grip was failing, slipping. I gripped her hand tighter. I wasn't letting her go. This is bad. "What exactly happened between you and Megan?" I blinked. Relief washed over my body. "Megan Green?" I asked dubiously. She nodded. I shrugged, "Nothing really, why?" Her face showed great concentration. I might have dodged a bullet with her dad topic but another one was coming directly at me. 

Niall's POV 

"Where are we going?" I asked as we pulled up front of a big house. Louis was driving and smirking from where I see in the review mirror. "I got invited to Grimme's party. Well we got invited." All the boys, myself included, had dressed up nicely. "I really don't want to go inside. I don't feel up to it." Harry shoved his elbow in my side, "You, my friend, need some special attention." He put an emphasis on the word special. Liam shot me a look. "I'm fine. I don't need any special attention." I said running a hand through my hair. "You've been..." Zayn cut off and made a gesture with his hand, "Really mopey lately. C'mon, just give it a try." I shook my head; everyone got out of the car. We entered the house and it was packed. I'm talking about people everywhere. Drinks in their hands. I am almost a hundred percent sure I didn't even know half of these people and that they were underage. We found Christina and walked over to her. "Hey!" Louis waved. I crossed my arms around my chest and nodded whenever I thought it was necessary. 

It was getting to the point where I literally thought I should just get up and leave. Everyone, the boys, were split up and I was basically on my own. I sat on the couch with a cup of sprite in my hand while everyone either danced, mingled, or made out in the worst possible way. I sighed as a girl approached me. "Hi there." She sat down next to me, her dress riding up as she sat. I nodded, trying to keep from getting up and leaving. "I've been watching you for a while now..." Her hand gets closer to my knee, "And I haven't seen any girls that seem to be your girlfriend." "Yeah, and?" She giggled and I smelled the alcohol from her breath, "What a shame," She got even closer, "But also a good thing." I scooted over even farther on the couch. "A good thing?" She closed the space once again and whispered in my ear, "Let me show you how to have fun." She grabs my hand and starts to lead us up stairs. 

Jailene's POV 

I sat down on the edge of the bed. I wanted to press on the topic but I'll let it slide for a later date. "Nothing, right?" I repeated. "Yeah, basically nothing." I nodded and gave him a smile. "Okay." There was silence. None of us knew what to say or we just didn't want to say anything. I opened my mouth to say something but Lilla beat me to it. "We're back!" I sighed a sigh of relief and smiled. "We brought whatever we felt like bringing." Jordan said laughing. They set down three bags of McDonalds on the movable table for paitents. Mike and Benry had their happy meal boxes and sat down happily, eagerly opening them. Brent sat up and winced. "Don't strain yourself!" I helped him up, "You should really be careful." Lilla and Jordan exchanged looks. "Do you remember the first time Jailene came to eat with us?" Jordan asked with a grin. Lilla joined in on the grinning and continued with Jordan's remark, "How she was so quiet and polite. I kept hoping she would rub off on you!" Mike and Benry sat side by side on a chair. I laughed. I remember that day. I didn't know what to expect at their house but before I left my mom had told me to be nice and always say please and thank you. They were just like my parents with the banter left and right. I smiled at Brent who was already staring at me. I smirk crept on his lips and he reached for my hand. 

Brent was falling asleep; I could see his head bobbing up and down. He was trying to keep his eyes open just like in freshmen year during Biology. "You should get some rest." I whispered in his ear. "Don't do that." I turned my face so I could see his. "Don't whisper in my ear like that," he smiled, "I won't be able to control myself. Even If I am injured." I rolled my eyes and shoved his shoulder a bit. "Ow!" He cried. "I didn't even push you hard!" I put my hand out to push him again but he grabbed it and entwined his fingers with mine. "I should get going. I'll come again tomorrow morning." I looked at the clock that read nine fifty seven. I haven't called the boys; they'll be worried. I was going to get up when Brent brought me down again. "No." He frowned and looked down. His eyes then flickered up to mine and I felt my heart ache. "I want you to stay here with me tonight." I bit my lip and looked around the room. I didn't know what to say. I wanted to stay here but I just can't. I was so confused. Every time I looked at him I saw Megan. What could he possibly have had with her. I could tell there was something he wasn't telling me. But if he didn't want to tell me then it can't be that wrong, right? I looked at my phone. No messages from Niall. That's strange. He always texts me. "Please. Just for tonight?" I bit my lip, "Let me call Lilla and tell her to just home tonight." Brent smiled and pulled me down so that we were inches apart."I could just kiss you right now." "What's stopping you?" He smirked and I did too, but it couldn't have been any faker.
