As Long As You're Here

Natalie was just a normal teenage girl trying to finish her Senior year without any drama, distractions or anything or the sort. She had finally found her true friend and who she was and what she was gong to do for the rest of her life she didn't want anything changing that. So far things are going good, but she's only about half way through the year, if that. But who knew winter break could change everything.


2. History

I walk straight up to my room and throw my backpack down. I think it’s time you learn a bit about me. Well, I'm a senior and can't wait to graduate. I'm going to college for nursing, pediatric nursing to be specific. I love kids so that's why I want the opportunity to spend my job with them. I have a small, what am I walking about, huge obsession with One Direction. I am a bit of a girly girl and my favorite color is pink. My best friend is Jay Williams. He is a sweetie pie and I love him to death, he might as well be my big brother. That's actually what we tell people when we don't feel like explaining why he calls me sis. I've known him since 4th grade and we've been the best of friends ever since, it's kinda crazy how close we are. He sleeps over at my house, I sleep over at his, we go shopping together, anything that you do with your best girl friend, I do with Jay. Really at this point in my life, once I've finally discovered myself and my true friends, he's the only guy I really trust. I've had a bad past with other guys. The worst was probably an abusive boyfriend I had my junior year. But Jay was there for me throughout all of that and never left my side. I love him with all of my heart and don't know what I would do without him. Well I guess you’re wondering about that abusive boyfriend. He was the nicest guy ever for about the first week but then it changed. It was pretty bad, but I was always about to cover it up. Jay didn’t know about it for about a month until I came to his house one day in tears because I couldn’t stand it anymore.

            “What the hell Natalie? You do what I say, when I tell you to!” he yelled at me, then raising a fist to punch me again. I was already cornered by him and in tears.

“Michael, please! Don’t!” I beg him.

“If you would just do what I asked" he paused and punched me in the stomach, I fell to the floor in pain. "None of this would happen. Now get up bitch"

"I wish I had never started dating you! You’re a dick! Acting so nice at school but as soon as you get me alone, you beat me!" I yell, not looking at him. I've had it and I couldn't handle it anymore, it’s been way too long I had to get out of this.

“I’m a what? Do you want to say that again? And you know you’re too scared to leave me”

“I’m not scared” I say getting up and putting my hand on the door handle, ready to run out. “And you’re a dick” He grips my arm tightly and I cringe

“But you are scared Nat, admit it. You’re scared I will come back and hurt you” I hated when he called me Nat, he doesn’t have the right to call me that. Only my real friends can call me that.

“No I’m not because I know I have someone to protect me” I fight, feeling stronger inside.

“Bitch please, you don’t have any friends. Who’s gunna protect you?”

“Jay!” I turn the door handle and run out of his room, and down the hall. I can hear his footsteps running after me. I get to his front door and quickly unlock it and run out. I didn’t hear him behind me anymore so I looked over my shoulder; I couldn’t see him so I stopped running. I sunk to the ground and just curled up in a ball crying. I didn’t know exactly where I was and I didn’t know where to go. I calmed down a bit and got my bearings. I was close to Jay’s house so I started walking there. I knew I could talk to him and I would be safe there. I get there eyes red and puffy, my cheek red and bruising from where he hit me and my arm red from where he gripped it so tightly. I take a deep breath and knock on the door. Jay answers it and as soon as our eyes meet his fill with worry, and tears fill mine. He steps outside and pulls me into a close tight hug I tense up at his grip, but then relax and just hug him. Finally we stop hugging and walk inside. I explain everything to him.

“How long has this been going on?” He asks after I finish

“About month…”

“Natalie! Why didn’t you tell me?”

“I’m sorry, I’m sorry I was scared he would hurt me worse”

“No it’s okay I understand,” He says calmingly. He moves his hand up to scratch his head and I flinch. “Natalie… I am never ever ever going to hurt you. I promise” he lifts up his pinkie. “Pinkie promise.” I lift up my pinkie and link it with his.

The door opens and closes down stairs and I shake myself out of this flashback and back to the present. I look at the clock, it’s 4:37, that means that my dad is home. I run downstairs and into my dad’s arms. My dad is like my second best friend and I love him with all of my heart.

“Hey pumpkin”

“Hey daddy, how was work?”

“Good, long. How was your last day of school?”

“Great” I say with a smile

“Do you already have plans?” he asks

“Not yet, but I was thinking of going over to Jays on Sunday. Is that okay?”

“Yeah, that’s totally fine. It’s Jay, you don’t really even have to ask anymore.” He says rubbing my back and walking into the kitchen to make dinner.
