You're Mine

*Not Famous*
Zoe and her cousin Niall have always been close, as close as they can be with Niall living all the way Ireland. When an unexpeected event brings Zoe to Ireland to stay with Niall, no one could have ever predicted what could've happened. Not only will Zoe fall for one of Niall's friends, she will be ripped away from everything she's ever known.


5. Protecting You

I glance around with a smile, and see that Niall and Noah really hit it off. They're talking about some stupid video game that just came out. Mandy looks bored with the conversation, so she turns towards Lilly and starts gossiping about everyone in our school.

"Jordan Plutcher went out with Dani Wellings boyfriend last week, to a party, and I heard from Tommy Durango that they went up stairs and did stuff."

Lilly gasps and throws a hand over her mouth, and Mandy smiles triumphantly, clearly please with her reaction. I smile to myself. I couldn't be happier. My cousin is getting along with my friends just fine, no Brandon here to ruin things, no drama, just laughs and smiles.

I feel someone grab my wrist and turn to see Seth staring at me. His short black hair contasts his bright blue eyes, making him different in a sense of looks. He squeezes my wrist harder and I let out a small whimper.

"Ouch, Seth. That hurts.."

He continues to squeeze harder and growls, "Good. It's supposed to. Meet me by the bathrooms in five minuets. We need to talk."

I nod, just wanting him to let go. What does he need to talk to me about? Probably Niall. He's going to be upset because I didn't tell him about Niall. I knew I should have. He finally releases his iron grip on my wrist and stalks off toward the bathroom. I tenderly rub it, watching the red marks form. Everyone is still laughing in the back ground and I start to get a little worried. What is Seth going to do? He's only ever struck me twice, but that could soon change.

I muster up some courage and plant a smile on my face.


He turns toward me with his brows raised. "What?"

"I have to pee. I'll be right back, okay?'

I can tell by the way he nods he doesn't think anythings up. He must of not seen what just went down with Seth, thank God. That could of been horrible. I hop off the truck and slowly make my way toward the bathroom, a feeling of dread slowly rising in my stomach. This isn't going to be good. Seth was really pissed off.

I make it to the old brown brick building, and circle around it searching for Seth. Where is he? He told me to meet him right here. I circle around again, still finding no sign of him. Well fine. If  he doesn't want to talk to me, he doesn't have to. I start to make my way back to the truck and my friends, when he pops out in front of me.

"Where are you going? I told you to meet me here."

His voice shakes and I cautiously take a step back. His roughly grabs my arm and pulls me toward the janitors closet. "Seth? Where are we going? Can't we talk out here?" I plead.

"Shut the hell up" he snaps, throwing me in the closet. He steps in behind me and shuts the door. I glance up at him nervously.

"S-Seth? Why are we in here?" I whisper, fear starting to rise up inside me.

Like a whip, he reaches out and slaps me with so much force I'm thrown to the ground. A sharp, blinding pain over takes the left side of my face as I lay crumpled on the floor. I gasp, trying to recover from the blow and cover my face.

"Stand up" He commands.

I reluctantly obey and shakily stand up. With out giving me a moment to breath, he's in my face, hands around both my wrists, spiting venomous words.

"Listen to me, you piece of shit. If you ever pull my hands off another guy of shove me like that again, there will be hell to pay, understand? I will not have some little bitch like you ruining my reputation."

I nod my head, a sob escaping my lips. He loosens his grip on my wrists and backs away from my face a little, eyes softening.

"Listen, baby. I don't want to have to hurt you. I hate seeing you cry like this, but if the guys find out a girl is stopping me from fighting and being me, they're going to want to get rid of that girl and I don't want them to have to get rid of you. I love you, Zo."

"I-I love you too, Seth" I sniff.

He kisses my left cheek and I hiss in pain. "Aw, baby" he mutters, gently caressing my red, throbbing skin.

"I want you to go get that cleaned up, okay? I'll wait outside for you."

I nod my head, keeping my eyes low and follow him out. As soon as were out I take off toward the girls room, still trying to hold back tears. I can't believe he did that. He's never hit me that hard. It's all out of love though, right? He said he was trying to protect me from his friends and he wouldn't do that if he didn't love me.

I examine the left side of my face in the poorly lighted, dingy bathroom. Even in the dark room I can see my skin's already starting to turn purple. There's a red hand print decorating my face from my jaw to my eye. It's starting to swell to. I grab a piece of paper towel and wet it with cold water. Tenderly, I press it to the red marks and it's almost instant relief.

He wouldn't do this again, would he? How am I supposed to explain to my mom and my friends and Brandon and Niall? I can't just go out there and tell them Seth hit me. They'll throw a fit! I have to think of a cover story and fast. Seth's probably getting impatient.

The door suddenly swings open, startling me. I drop the paper towel and stumble back a few steps. A short, elderly woman with grey hair and faded green eyes stares at me.

"I'm sorry ma'am. You just scared me a little."

My hands over my heart as I let out a nervous laugh. The old lady doesn't move or even smile. She just stands there and stares at me. I glance around me as I grow uncomfortable, searching for something she could be staring at. Why is she looking at me?

"Uhm, Miss? Are you ok?"

I make my way toward her,  starting to get a little worried. What if she's crazy? Or having a heart attack or something? I stop in front of her, "Miss?"

She reaches out a worn, wrinkled hand and gently places it on my face, caressing my skin. With a sad smile she says, "Oh, sweet child. It's such a shame what men will do to beautiful young ladies. Get out before it's to late, dear."

And with that, she walks into a stall, leaving me standing confused in the middle of the bathroom. How does she know Seth did this? Did she some how see us in the closet? No, she couldn't have. There was no windows or anything in that little space. What did she mean by 'get out before it's to late'? Was she telling me to break-up with Seth/

"Hey, babe! Hurry up, I don't have all day!'

Seth's irratated shout snaps me out of my daydream. I'll worry about it later.
