20. Chapter 20

Lillian’s POV

I was surrounded by the smell of fresh summer air, looking around I could see trees from every distance and flowers scattered across the freshly cut grass, I feel the warm summer breeze bounce against my warm skin, my toes curling into the grass, closing my eyes and inhaling my surroundings.

“Lillian?” the voice sounded familiar, a sweet voice that I hadn’t heard in a while, I turned around to see a petite figure in the summer light, it was only till the figure had gotten closer towards me that I recognised the beautiful shadow that beheld me.

“Grandmother?” a smile quickly grew onto my face, I ran towards her at top speed, embracing into her comforting arms that hadn’t held me in such a long time.

“How are you here? I thought you were dead”

“My sweet Lillian, I am”

“I don’t understand, what am I…”

“Don’t you remember?”

“Yes… I was attacked, all I can remember is hearing Justin’s… JUSTIN!”

“Relax, you’re not dead honey, you’re just unconscious, you’ll be waking up soon, can you remember anything else from your attack?”

“Not really, not enough, I can’t believe I’m here with you, it’s been so long…” I felt a light tear role down my cheek, she scraped her thumb gently over my cheek to catch the tear.

“I know, I’ve been waiting for a moment like this to see you again, but not the way I got it… I can’t believe that happened to you, my sweet Lillian…” thinking about it, I could hardly remember anything from the attack, but there were little pieces here and there, looking up, I placed my head to rest on her shoulder, giving her another cuddle, I wasn’t sure how long I would be unconscious for, so I had to treasure every single second I had left to spend with her.

“Is everybody okay? The family, friends, Justin…”

“Why don’t you take a look for yourself sweetie”

As if from out of nowhere, our setting was no longer a beautiful meadow, we were both standing in a hospital, I could see my mum and dad talking to doctors, Hayley  sitting on the sofa next to them, I looked over to the room 207, grandmother pulled me towards the door and we both walked in, looking at an unconscious me, I looked broken, delicate, this girl lying in this bed didn’t look like me one bit, my face was replaced by bruises and my arms replaced by bandages, but I looked passed me to find a boy, my boy, big dark bags and circles under his eyes, he hadn’t looked like he slept in days, moving towards him, pulling up a chair next to him, stroking his beautiful hair, giving his forehead a light kiss.

“I wish you could meet him properly, not like this”

“Lillian, I’m always looking down on you, I see the way he is around you, I’m happy you’ve found him, regardless of his past”

“Do you think it’ll always be that way? Do you think we’ll ever have a normal life together?”

“Honey, your path hasn’t been written yet, no person has a planned life, things happen for a reason”

“Like Justin’s? his family shouldn’t have to go through what they did, especially his mother”

“I know, god doesn’t give us all of the answers Lillian, you just have to have faith that everything will be okay in the end”

“I wish I could just tell him that I’m okay, I wish I could tell everyone that I was okay, so that they could stop worrying”

“Come on, there’s somewhere I want to take you” she let out her hand, I quickly gave Justin a kiss on his soft lips, then taking her hand as I stood up, again from nowhere, the hospital was replayed by a small bridge over a river, I remember this place, I’d come here with my grandmother all the time, it’s one of my few favourite spots back home, endless picnics along the river, stories about her and my grandfather, who died just shortly after I was born, we’d stay here for hours.

“It’s going to be a while before I see you again Lillian, I wanted to take you to here one last time before you gain consciousness, I want you know that everything’s going to be alright, and I love you”

“I love you to” I could feel the little tears escape from my eyes, giving her one last hug before it would be a while before I could see her again “I’m going to miss you so much”

“Oh sweetie, those words are going to break my heart” pulling out from the hug, she cupped her hands on my face, wiping away my tears “We will see each other again someday” pulling in for another hug, I could feel the world around me closing in, everything getting darker, turning to black.


I can’t see nor hear anything.

Wait, I could hear light snores, but I couldn’t see the face accompanying the sounds, I could hear beeping, those were the machines, but I couldn’t see them, I couldn’t feel anything.

Wait, I could hear more sounds now, someone moaning, but not in pain, like they had just woken up, hearing the light sigh that followed, I could now feel, I could feel light strokes against my hand, I could now feel light strokes on my face, the feeling was soft against my cheek, but the hand quickly moved down to my hand, now I could hear words, words that sounded broken and tired, but the voice belonged to no stranger, the voice belonged to Justin, my Justin.

“Sorry I fell asleep there, I promised you I would stay awake till you woke up” the room became silent for a while until he spoke up again “I want you to wake up so badly, I know it’s selfish of me, but I can’t be another second without you, I can’t be another second without hearing that goofy gorgeous laugh of yours, or the way tuck your hair behind your ear when you’re nervous, or the way that you blush when I tell you how beautiful you look, I miss you so much Lillian” his words were breaking my heart, I can hear you baby, but I just can’t do anything about it, I could hear his sobbing and feel his warm tears on my arm, I wanted to cry now, why couldn’t I just wake up so I could take his pain away already? How long was I going to be like this for? I wanted to wake up, I was trying everything, but nothing seemed to work, nothing would budge, suddenly, I could hear Justin speak up again, sobbing more than ever “This shouldn’t of happened, if I had never of met you this wouldn’t of ever happened, this is all my fault” Justin don’t think like that, please “this is all my fault Lillian I’m so sorry” this isn’t your fault, none of this was “I love you so much Lils, I’m so sorry” being in the blackness was beyond frustrating me now, I had to comfort Justin, I couldn’t take his sobbing anymore, or his painful words that weren’t true, it was breaking my heart to a point I could feel it ripping from inside of me, he hadn’t slept in days, I knew not sleeping was getting to the best of him now, but being in the darkness was getting to the best of me now.

Suddenly, I could see light, bright light, very bright light, my eyes were opening, adjusting to the light, I was waking up, no more darkness, no more hiding.

Justin’s POV

Not sleeping for three days was definitely getting to the best of me now, I was sobbing uncontrollably, not knowing what else to do, kissing every inch of Lillian, showing her affection, I couldn’t think straight, I just wanted her back, to hold her in my arms and tell her that everything was going to be okay, I was so thankful when the doctor told us that the tests came back negative for sexual activity, my Lillian was still pure, I know that may seem weird to people, but knowing that when we do start to have any sort of sexual relationship, knowing that I would be her first for many different things, makes me feel happy, I’m happy that she doesn’t go around trying to hook up with any guy she can get her hands on, she’s my girl, and that’s the way it’ll always be.

“I-I-I love y-you to” her voice was quiet and groggy, but it was hers, looking up and seeing her beautiful brown eyes on mine, I couldn’t wish for nothing more.

“Lillian? Baby… you’re awake” I didn’t care, I went straight for her lips, her warm beautiful lips, continuously kissing her, her kissing me back, holding her, her delicate arms around my waist, moving from her lips to kiss the bandage that covered her forehead, then looking back at her.

“I can’t believe you’re awake…”

“Justin… I saw her”

“You saw who?” I didn’t know if it was the effects of the medication that the doctors had given her, but I wasn’t going to judge my girl, I stroked her cheek, waiting for her response.

“My… my grandmother, I saw her, I talked to her, do you think that’s crazy?”

“Not at all baby, what did you talk to her about?”

“She took me to a beautiful meadow, then here, in this room, I saw you sleeping, and then, I was by the river, the one that she used to take me to when I was little”  

“You saw me?”

“Yeah… it was really weird, I actually felt like I was actually here with everybody, she likes you”

“Well I’m glad I have your grandmas approval” we both let out a little laugh, placing my forehead against hers, taking this all in, slowly moving to her beautiful lips again, slowly this time, savouring every touch she gave me, every kiss I felt, but her face looked somewhere else.

“Baby, what’s wrong? do you want me to go get a doctor? I should go get your parents”

“Wait Justin… Ava”

“Ava? Who’s Ava?”

“I don’t know, I can remember now, it’s all coming back to me, they weren’t looking for me, they were looking for a girl named Ava, they thought that I was her”

“Well, what else do you remember?”

“Not a lot, but… these guys were talking about her, this girl, and some guy, I can’t remember his name” I could see she was really trying to think about it, but I was going to let her, she’d just woken up.

“Hey shh, baby don’t overthink about it, the police can handle it now”

“How long have I been out for?”

“Three days”

“Oh-oh my god, Justin, they’ve probably found her by now, they were gonna kill her” she was panicking now, I had to calm her down.

“Baby baby calm down” she was trying to concentrate, suddenly, as if she remembered something, her face lit up.

“Ryan! That’s the guy’s name, Ryan”

No, no no no, this can’t be happening, how did I not see it before, I was breaking a promise, it’s broken by now.

“Justin, what’s wrong?”

“Ava’s Ryan’s girlfriend, Ryan’s my best friend”

Ryan had asked me to keep an eye out for Ava, I had only spoken to her not too long ago, she was going to visit Ryan in Juvie, but she’s back now.

Ava’s in trouble, Ava could be dead.
