12. Chapter 12

Justin’s P.O.V

I had no idea what to do once Acelia walked out. She’d really gone, really left. I thought maybe her reaction at the restaurant was just because I had caught her by surprise and it was probably quite confronting and maybe back at the apartment when it was more intimate and one on one she might’ve had time to think and get her head around it. But if anything, back here was worse.

Her words keep replaying over in my head, “I don’t want to talk to you and I don’t actually care!”

Did she mean it? Or was it something she said just in the moment of things? I surely hoped it was just a panic thing and she did it out of fear that if she said anything else she may’ve regretted it later or maybe she was just confused? I have no idea.

I don’t know if I can ever face her again. What she said really, really hurt me and the whole time I’d be looking at her all I’d be thinking was “you’re the one who shut me down”, “are you talking to me out of pity or do you really want to speak to me?”, “are you here because you feel sorry for me?”. I can’t do it. I have to leave, go someplace else before she has any time to return.

“Aunt Rachel, it’s me, Justin.”

“Guys, it’s Justin!!!!” I heard her yell out to the family in the background.

“Haha hey Aunt, I don’t know if mum told you but I’m living in New York now. I moved here just recently.”

“Oh darl that’s fantastic!!! You’ll have to come and visit us sometime soon.”

“Well speaking of coming to see you guys...it’s a big ask and please, please feel free to say no..”

“Yeah..”

“Could I possibly crash with you guys? I’m sorry to drop this on you so suddenly. It’ll only be for a few nights, just to give me some time to think and plan what I’m going to do next.”

“Sure thing honey, what’s the problem?”

“Don’t worry Aunt Rach, it’s okay. You don’t need to worry about me.”

“Are you sure honey? I’m happy to talk, you always know that.”

This brought a smile to my face, Aunt Rachel has always been my favourite of my mum’s siblings, “I know Aunt. Thank you, I love you and I’ll see you soon.”

“We’ll be waiting for you Just, love you hunn!”

I packed a few things hoping it was all I would need as I’m not planning on staying for too long. I’m hoping this will all blow over in a few days and Celia and I can go back to being friends and living in the same apartment together.

I was about to head out until I remember something I should do before I leave, write Acelia a note just in case she comes home and finds that I’m not here. I ripped a sheet out of my notebook and grabbed out a pen and began writing.

Dear Acelia,

I think we can both agree that it would be better if we weren’t together for a few days, just to have some space and give us both some quality thinking time. I’m staying with someone else for the time being so don’t worry about me, I’m safe.

I’m not sorry about what I said; I can’t help how I feel. However I am sorry that it has potentially ruined our amazing friendship and I’m sorry that you reacted the way you did. I guess if I love you enough I’ll let you go, right?

I want you to know that I’m hurting and I don’t necessarily want to speak to you for a while but I respect your decision and answer.

I love you and I hope you’re well and safe. Thinking of you, always.

Justin

I put it in a sealed envelope and was on my way. I took one last look of the apartment then shut the door behind me and bowed my head as I walked down the stairs and out of the apartment block.

Acelia’s P.O.V

I picked up the letter with trembling hands unsure if I was ready to read what the note was going to say. I guess there is only one way to find, and that is to actually read it right? I opened up the envelope and pulled out the letter. I took a deep breath in and out, I hadn’t even started reading the letter and I could feel the tears fogging up my eyes.

The note read..

Dear Acelia,

Justin   

“Celia? Are you okay?”

I felt a hand on my shoulder and turned around to see Hannah who had obviously come in after me.

“He’s gone Hannah.” And after I spoke those three words, I broke down and fell into Hannah’s arms, not knowing what to do next.

“Oh sweetie..” she sounded so sincerely sympathetic. “where do you think he’s gone?”

For a few minutes I couldn’t speak, I just sat there with Hannah hugging me and cradling me in her arms while I lay into her crying. When I finally calmed down a little bit I found words to speak,

“I have no clue. He doesn’t even know his way around New York all that well yet. I have no idea where he could be or who he could be with. What if he’s gone off and done something stupid Hannah? WHAT HAVE I DONE?!”

I lost it. I lost him. In that moment, it felt like I had lost everything that had any worth to me.

“Where’s my phone?”

“I don’t know Celia, did you bring up here with you?”

Through sniffs and tears I searched my pockets frantically hoping to find my phone somewhere in them.

“GOT IT!”

“What’re you going to do Celia? Chances are he won’t answer you sweetie..”

“No. I’m not calling Justin. I’m calling someone who deserves all that comes for them.”

I could tell by the look on Hannah’s face that she was confused and worried at the same time. She hadn’t any clue who I was about to ring.

I typed “Scooter Braun” into my phone directory and his contact popped up. I pressed dial and held the phone up to my ear, still shaking and wiping away tears.

“Acelia, hello.”

“DON’T YOU DARE ‘ACELIA’ OR ‘HELLO’ ME. YOU ARE A MONSTER. YOU DESERVE TO ROT IN HELL AND WATCH WHAT’S COMING FOR YOU. YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT YOU’VE DONE AND WHAT YOU’VE CREATED BETWEEN JUSTIN AND I. I AM SO DONE WITH YOU SCOOTER BRAUN. HOW DO YOU FEEL?”

“Celia, stop! It’s not worth it. You’ll regret it.” Hannah tried to reach for my phone and take it off but I nudged her and got up to walk to the kitchen to continue ragging.

“YOU BETTER FUCKING FIND OUT WHERE JUSTIN IS AND YOU BETTER HOPE AND PRAY THAT HE’S SAFE.”

“Acelia what are you even o-“ There was no way I was going to let Scooter try and make excuses let alone finish a sentence.

“DON’T YOU EVEN DARE. YOU KNOW EXACTLY WHAT I’M ON ABOUT. JUSTIN AND I. LOVING EACH OTHER AND YOU RUINED THAT. YOU BUTTED IN TO SOMETHING THAT ISN’T EVEN YOUR BUSINESS AND I’LL NEVER FORGIVE YOU FOR WHAT YOU’VE CAUSED.”

“Celia.”

“Hannah not now I need to do this.”

“No Celia you need to come here.” This time Hannah sounded really, really worried and there was almost a wobble to her voice.

I turned around and standing at the entrance of our apartment were 2 policemen.  I instantly dropped my phone and felt weak all over.

“Acelia Jones?”

“This is she.” I said as I stumbled my way over to the door closer toward them.

“We are very, deeply sorry to inform you but your room mate, Justin Bieber, has been involved in a car crash.”

My heart and gut dropped along with my whole, physical body that just dropped to the floor. The worlds playing over in my head, “Justin Bieber” “involved in a car crash”. My whole world felt like it was spinning and I had no control over it.

“Celia! Celia, stay with me sweetie!” I heard Hannah yelling at me.

Blackness and silence.
