15. Chapter 15

Justin’s POV

I could feel Lillian breathing hard and I knew she was asleep, she only did that when she slept, I continued to watch TV since I wasn’t at all tired, I gently pulled the couch blanket over myself and Lillian, making sure she wasn’t cold, every once in a while I would look over at Lillian, sleeping peacefully on me, her body sticking to mine, head resting on my shoulder, her hand touching my chest, she looked even more beautiful when she slept and I didn’t even know if it was possible for a girl to be that perfect, holding her in my arms, everything was finally feeling right again, thinking about earlier, how amazing she is with my family, the fact that she isn’t the slightest bit bothered about how small my house is, it was as if god had personally made Lillian for me, she was a gift that I planned on keeping, sure, my life up until now has been pretty fucked up, knowing that I can’t leave those guys for anything, but maybe, just maybe, they could help me protect Lillian, they were on my side after all, a part of the crew, all they knew is that I took Lillian that night and had sex with her, which obviously I wouldn’t dare do, they didn’t have to know every detail on my relationship with Lillian, but they could help me not get Lillian hurt, since she’s my girl, not that I have ever been a personal target before, but with the life I live, you never truly know.

I could feel myself drifting off, heavy eyes were now haunting me, pulling Lillian as close to me as I possibly could, wrapping my arms around her tightly, I knew that I couldn’t keep awake for long, but the scenario is different from the last time we fell asleep together, we were at her house, safe, in no way in any danger, but this time we’re at my house, unsafe, danger lurking in the distance, not even having my gun on me for protection, my arms holding her tightly would have to do, giving her a light kiss, my eyes beginning to slowly shut.

“Justy? Justy?” I quickly opened my eyes, Lillian still safe in my arms, I let out a sigh of relief, but slowly realising who’s voice had called my name, the only person who gave me that nickname, Jazzy, my eyes focused now on the little girl standing right beside me, tears streaming down her face.

“Jazzy? Baby girl what’s wrong? did you have another bad dream?” I didn’t understand, Jazzy was finally making progress, she was starting to sleep in her own bed, no longer needing the company of mine or my mother’s arms, that was until I heard the gun shots coming from outside our house, and they were close, very close.

“Go in the bathroom now okay baby girl, don’t come out till I say so okay?” she nodded and quickly ran her little legs into the small bathroom, the gun shots becoming louder and louder with each shot being fired, and then I remembered the girl sleeping on my couch, Lillian.

“LILLIAN WAKE UP! BABY WAKE UP! I’M NOT KIDDING, YOU NEED TO HIDE IN THE BATHROOM, NOW!”  she woke up in an instant.

“What? Justin what’s going o-” before she could finish her sentence more shots were fired, Lillian was paralyzed in fear.

“GET IN THE BATHROOM, STAY WITH JAZZY!”

Turning off all the lights, not drawing any attention to the house, Lillian ran straight for the bathroom, keeping Jazzy close to her, the rooms getting darker and darker, running straight for my room, gun in my pocket, I knew the guys would need me, I’ve already had three missed calls from them, I have to keep the girls safe, running to the bathroom, turning off the light and shutting the door, making my way to the front door when I heard Lillian behind me.

“DIDN’T YOU HEAR ME? GET IN THE BATHROOM!” the shots where so loud, screaming over them was my only choice.

“WHERE ARE YOU GOING? YOU’RE NOT GOING OUT THERE!”

“LILLIAN JUST GET IN THE BATHROOM, STAY WITH JAZZY, I’LL BE RIGHT BACK”

“YOU CAN’T LEAVE US, JUSTIN PLEASE, I’M SCARED” tears were streaming down her face now, I didn’t want to be a dick, but knowing that it was the only way of getting her in there, pushing her into the bathroom and locking it from the outside, they’re safe now, that’s all that matters, running out the front door, running to where I knew they would be.

Lilly’s POV

Scared, that’s one word you could describe how I’m feeling right now, that word being the easiest, but scared isn’t even remotely close to how I’m feeling right now, terrified, hurt, betrayed, empty, and nothing but the arms of a seven year old to comfort me, trying my best to comfort her, but judging by how brave this little girl is, in the face of this situation, this isn’t the first time she’s been locked in this bathroom because of it, and that, for some reason, terrifies me the most, seven years on this planet, and already she’s seen more and experienced dangerous situations than I could wish on anyone.

Justin.

How dare he leave us here, alone, locked in a bathroom in the dark, was he just acting that way to put me in here? Or was that the way he actually acted around people? I couldn’t think straight, my mind was all over the place, even if I was annoyed and hurt by him, I wish Justin was here to comfort me, to comfort his sister as well.

“It’s gonna be okay Lilly, Justy will be back here soon” she took me by surprise, how was such a sweet little girl so brave?

“H-have you ever b-been in here by yourself?”

“No, Momma’s been in here with me before, I’ve only been in here three times” only three times, she sounds like she would be in here again in this situation, I gave her a reassuring nod, even though she was in my arms, she was the one rubbing my back, holding me close, I quickly snapped out of it, I was the adult here, I shouldn’t let her comfort me, I had to be strong for this little girl.

We were both silent for a while, the gun shots slowly fading away, I hated that it was pitch black, darkness surrounding us, Justin, where you?

Seconds turning into minutes, minutes turning into what felt like hours, sitting there, hugging onto this little girl for dear life, I was the only protection she had, and that’s what scared me the most, what would I do if someone came and found us? I don’t have a weapon, I’m not strong, my only hope is that no one would find us, if no one finds us, that’s the only way we would be safe.

Suddenly, from out of nowhere, there were noises coming from the other side of the door, me and Jazzy were both terribly quiet, holding onto her with my own life, something made a sound by the door, I’m sorry Jazzy, I couldn’t save you, I couldn’t save us, then from out of nowhere the door flung open, but we weren’t in danger, we were safe.

“Justy!” Jazzy leaped out of my arms and into Justin’s, he had a few cuts here and there, but other than that he looked healthy.

“Hey baby girl, you’re safe now, I promise”

I slowly picked myself up from the floor, my eyes now meeting Justin’s, he looked just as broken as I was.

“I’m sorry” I just nodded, I was clueless as to what I should do, Justin didn’t hesitate to pull me in for a hug, I accepted, all three of us we silent for a while, until Justin spoke up.

“Come on” He led us into his room, his bed just about fit all three of us in there, hugging all together tightly, more silence had begun, Jazzy was out like a light, she felt fine, her big brother and his wimpy girlfriend were here.

“Why, why did you just leave us?” I was quiet enough not to wake Jazzy, Justin let out a big sad sigh before he spoke.

“I know your hurt, and I’m sorry for that Lillian, I am, but if leaving to join the guys means that the commotion goes away from the house, keeping you and Jazzy safe, then I’d do it again, over a million times”

“What if something were to happen to you? How would your mother feel? How would your sister feel... how would I feel? I… I just got you back”

“Oh Lils” me moved closer to my face, giving me a love filled kiss, which turned to more kisses, carefully not to squash Jazzy he pulled away, but keeping his hand on my face.

“I’m so sorry that this happened tonight, I never wanted this to happen to you”

Holding onto his hand tightly, I shut my eyes, hoping that sleep would be able to find me again.
