Strange Love

Who knew that an encounter in a supermarket would result in this? Not Rose, that's for sure.


12. Haunting Past

"I grew up in Australia with my mum and dad. We weren't the perfect family; we had our arguments but what family didn't? But by the time I was 14, things started to change. My parents argued more and more until I thought they were going to be divorced. They didn't and I was happy about that. Until they came home one night both drunk. I don't know what started it and I don't know why they carried on, but that was the day that they... that they... abused me. I t-thought I had done something wrong and deserved it because th-they would always t-tell me how worthless and f-fat and ugly I was." I paused to take a breath as the tears streamed down my face. Luke had tensed as he held me and I knew he was in shock. But I still had to finish.

"I met Lexi 3 y-years later... she found out about the abuse and planned to get me out of t-there. But the night we left, my dad came back and he had... a k-kn... a knife. I r-remember th-the pain as it touched m-me and t-there was blood.... blood everywhere. Lexi f-found me, took me t-to hospital and at that point... her dad was a doctor so he made sure I was... okay... and we all moved here. I h-hadn't seen my parents since."


Luke's POV

I sat and I listened to Rose as she told me about her past and who the guy was and I was so shocked at the end of it. Rose was crying so I let her cry into my shoulder, rubbing her back. I was in shock. I had no idea what to say. She looked so happy usually, it was strange to think she'd gone through that. She was so strong. No one could have guessed that she would have suffered so much. And her parents were the ones that hurt her! I'd kill them for hurting Rose. She didn't deserve it. 

It made me think about last week, when we had all been at their place watching DVD's all day and her top had risen a bit. Now that I think about it, I'm sure I had seen a scar and now I know I was right. That prick scarred her! 

"I'll never let anyone hurt you again." I promised her, and I kissed the top of her head.

I couldn't help but wish she was mine though. I wanted to be the one that could kiss her whenever I wanted to, hold her in my arms whenever I wanted to, call her up in the middle of the night just to hear her voice. I guess it was safe to say that I liked Rose, probably more than I should. But as usual, I don't get the girl. Instead, Harry has the girl I want. Why can't she just see how much I like her?

I would tell her about my feelings but I wouldn't want to scare her away. I knew she doesn't feel the same -she wouldn't be with Harry if she did- so I could only bite my tongue and hold back all the words I want to say. Which sucked, but I just had to get on with it. 

"Thank you Luke. You're a great friend." I almost cried at the word 'friend'. 100% friend zoned Luke, great. Not.



(A/N: Sorry it's so short, I'm running out of ideas for this story. The last few chapters will be posted either later on tonight or tomorrow, depending on whether I have the time. Hope you're all liking it anyway! :))
