For a Reason

I have to get away. Away from this place. But everytime I do HE always drags me back. But this time is different. A boy finds me and he's different. And even though my past is torn, I know now everything happens for a reason.


6. Stay

Nichole's POV

I didn't even know the guy and I just soaked his shirt. Nice going Nichole. Great job. 

IPulled out of his hug and sniffed the last tears away.

"Nichole, do you not have a place to stay?"he asked concerned.  If I said no, he would offer a place to say. I simply could not do that. But I couldn't lie to him. Think,Think!

Wait. Got it. "Actually, I'm going to stay at my brother's place. He lives just 4 blocks away." Yes. Connor would be supprised but I think he'd be okay with it.

"You sure?" he asked, hopeful.

"Yeah, I better start heading there. But thanks, for everything." I gave him one last hug and started towards Connor's house. I hope I remembered correctly.

-Skip Walk-

After about a 15 minute walk, I finally made it.

I rang the bell. Please Connor,Please.

"Yes?" a female answered the door. Crap. He must've moved.

"Oh, sorry. I was looking for Connor Mills." I started walking away.

"Wait! He does live here, one sec." I came back to the door. I wonder if this girl was his girlfriend or something.

"Ye-" He looked at me in shock. "Nikki?" he whispered. I smiled and nodded my head.

"God I've missed you!" he picked me up and swung me around while we both laughed. Connor had always made me happy, he had been my best friend. He put me down and he just looked at me.

Connor had always been taller than me. Even though he was older, he'd inherited our dad's tall genes while I took after mum's small ones. He had brown hair and blue eyes, like me. He wasn't anywhere close to being a body-builder, but he was muscular. I hadn't seen him since last Christmas.

Even though he was only one year older than me (I'm 19, he's 20), he had always been my 'protecter'. He never liked Ed, but I had stupidly ignored him.

"Connor, who is this?" the girl asked from the doorway. She seemed very sweet.

"Oh, right. Kathrine, this is Nikki, my little sis. Nikki, this is Kathrine, my girlfriend." he said. Just from the way she looked at him, I could tell they were truly in love.

"So this is the famous Nikki?" she said, coming up to me. She enveloped me in a hug. I already really like her.

"Actually, it's Nichole. Connor has always called me that. I've tried to get him to stop, but he won't" I said smiling. "I'm so happy Connor finally met a nice girl." we both laughed and Connor just faintly blushed.

We walked inside and Kathrine went to go to make us some tea.

"Connor, I need a favor from you." I said sheepishly. 

"Whatcha need?" he asked, brightly.

"Can I stay here until I get back on my feet? I have no where else and I can pay you rent. It's just until I can afford an apartment." I said it really quickly.

"Of course! And you do not have to pay me. No buts." He saw as I tried to insist. "but what about Ed?" he said the name like it was the devil's name.

"I ended it." I said flatly. I hated lying. But if he found out what had happened, he would go on a rampage.

"I'm so sorry Nikki." no he wasn't. I could tell he was jumping for joy inside his head.

Connor asked Kathrine and she had no problem with it.

" Hey Nikki, someone has been missing you." Connor was at the back door. Then he opened it up and a golden retriever pounced on me.

"Mack!" I yelled. He was my dog. When I moved in with Ed, I asked Connor to hold onto him for me. Ed was allergic. "Thank you so much for taking care of my Macky for me!" 

I was the happiest I had been in the last year.
