4. Chapter 4


Lilly’s POV

It had been three weeks since Justin had saved me, ever since that night we have become inseparable, we’d be texting non-stop and hanging out together, I still felt that I owed him big time, if it wasn’t for him I would have been raped, or worse been killed, I still replay that moment in my mind over and over again, but lately it’s been hitting me more and more, I didn’t think about it at the time since I was just in so much shock but now it was hitting me like a ton of bricks, why was Justin there in the first place and how did he know those guys, sure enough I was determined to find out, I wasn’t going to let it be unnoticed, I had questions and Justin was the only person who had my answers.

Justin and I planned to go out for the evening and go to the shopping centre, or the mall as Americans call it here, he always took me to places that had different names to where I’m from, he told me likes to do this because he finds my British vernacular funny and cute, sure enough it had got to 5.00 and I heard a tapping at my window, it was Justin and I didn’t hesitate to open my window for him to climb in.

“Here’s an idea, why don’t you use my front door like a normal human being?”

“Well what’s the fun in that?” he let out a chuckle “You ready to go to the shopping centre?”

“Are you mocking me Justin? And if that was your English accent it’s terrible”

“I think you’ll find that my English accent is rather good actually” his accent was awful, but you couldn’t help but laugh at him for trying, we headed out of my house, this time Justin used my front door and not my window, and got in Justin’s car.

“I didn’t know you had a car”

“I don’t, I’m just borrowing it from a friend while he’s away for a few weeks”

I gave him a nod and continued to look out the window, as soon as he parked the car I turned over to meet his eyes.


“Yeah Lillian?”

“I need to ask you something, about the night that you saved me”

“Err, yeah sure, ask away” his smile started to go away, giving him a more serious look.

“I guess I just wanna know what you were doing there and how you knew that guy, you said yourself that it’s a dangerous part of town…”

He let out a sigh before answering me “Well, I know the guy cause I’ve seen him around with my friend Ryan, and I was hanging out with Ryan that night, saw what happened, guess it was just good timing…” was I going to believe him? He didn’t stutter or pause half way through, maybe he is telling the truth, with his answer I just simply smiled and his smile returned to his face, we got out of the car and went to many different shops, clothes shops, book shops, art and crafts shops, and sure enough we finished and went back to the car, we were both feeling hungry so we stopped by the diner for dinner, the diner had become a favourite spot for us to hang out and eat, we came here almost all of the time we hung out together, after we finished we headed back to the car, we had to cut through a dark alley to get to it and I immediately held Justin’s hand, he kept on telling me that I was safe but I somehow just felt safer when I held his hand or his arm, just knowing that we was here with me.

Sure enough we made it to the car, but Justin had gone from happy to worried in a split second.

“Hey, I just gotta talk to someone quickly, wait in the car okay and don’t get out”

I gave him a nod and got in the car, he shut the door and headed to a dark figure by the lamppost, it was dark but I couldn’t see what Justin was walking to, but I knew it was a person, I began to worry now, it was dark and we were still near the dodgy part of town, before I knew what was happening, Justin was on the ground screaming.

I panicked, without thinking I got out of the car and rushed over to him, he was getting beaten pretty bad by this other guy, I was nearly over to him, the other guy saw me coming towards him and Justin, then out of nowhere the guy grabbed me and threw me against the wall, Justin saw this and began to pick himself up again.


With this the guy threw me to the ground and began to hit Justin again, Justin punching back, I felt so defenceless, so I did the unthinkable, I got up and ran over to them, picked up the first thing I found and threw it at the guy.

“Leave him alone!”

The guy threw Justin to the ground and came for me, he grabbed me and pushed me against the wall again, only this time one of his hands were around my neck and the other was undoing his jeans, he reached for my dress and pulled it up, Justin was completely hurt, but he got up anyway and jumped onto the guy, with the guy still grabbed onto me all three of us fell to the ground, the guy managed to get up whilst we were still on the ground and pulled out his gun aiming it at Justin.

“Have sex with my girl again and I’ll kill you, same goes for your little whore” and with that he ran off.

Justin looked up and me and checked if I had been hurt, I barely had a scratch on me, but that wasn’t the case for Justin, he was covered in blood and had many cuts and bruises.

“I… I… I told you to say in the car…”he could hardly speak; I picked him up and put him in the passenger’s seat and began to drive, heading straight to my house, luckily my parents and Hayley went out for the night and I knew that I had a big first aid kit in my bathroom, as soon as we got to mine I helped Justin out of the car, heading straight to my room, he could barely stand he was so weak, I put him to sit on my bed and went to my bathroom got the first aid kit and brought it back to where Justin was, I washed away all of the blood and cleaned him up, he looked better than he did an hour ago, but this was progress, after I finished cleaning him up I began to walk back to my bathroom to put the first aid kit back, but Justin’s hand grabbed my arm gently.

“Lillian… please don’t go, can you stay here with me?” in the five weeks that I had known Justin I had seen many sides to him, this was the first time I had ever seen him with such sadness and worry in his eyes, his hand now slowly reaching from my arm to my hand, his touch being so gentle, even in the state he was in he was still so sweet, I set the first aid kit beside my bed, not letting go of my hand Justin slowly moved to lay on my bed, making sure he didn’t feel any pain by moving too fast, and pulled me onto the bed to lay next to him.

Justin’s POV

I wanted her to lay on me so badly, she told me she didn’t want to in case she put me in pain, but after a minute of begging and pleading she gave in, it wasn’t till she rested her head on my chest that I realised my shirt was still off, I was beyond the point of caring, this was the first time I had ever felt this vulnerable with someone, Lillian made me feel completely safe when she held me, ironic given my circumstances, but she did, the way she stroked my arm so gently, her chest in perfect synchronisation to mine as we breathed, i couldn’t have this girl, I couldn’t bring her into my world I told myself, yet here we were, she’d already seen too much that I didn’t want her to see in the first place, but I wanted her so badly to be mine, to hold her, to kiss her, to love her, but I wasn’t allowed it, but I couldn’t help but think about the little things that we did or still do, like when I saved her she kissed my check, or the way we hug when we say goodbye, or the way she holds my hand tightly when we walk down the dark alley from the diner, this girl made me feel things no other girl has, this time it wasn’t about getting laid to satisfy my needs, with Lillian it was much more than that, even with my lifestyle, I wasn’t gonna give up on us, even if we just stayed friends, I wasn’t gonna have Lillian out of my life.

“Justin” I only just heard her, she was quiet.


Lilly’s POV

“Is what that guy said true? Did you really sleep with his girlfriend?” I knew he was badly hurt right now, but the more I hung out with Justin, the more questions I get that need answering, I removed my head from his bare chest and laid on my front, bringing my head closer to his, he let out a big sigh then looked at me.

“I don’t want to tell you”

“Why not?” I was getting aggravated now.

“Because you’re gonna think less on me if I tell you the truth…” think less of him? What could he do to make me think less of him, he was too kind-hearted and warm with me.

“Justin, I’d never think less of you, please tell me the truth” he let out another big sigh before he answered me.

“Okay, in all honestly… I don’t know, I’ve slept with a lot of girls, but I stopped doing that about three weeks ago”

I was in shock, I knew Justin wasn’t a virgin, he had told me, but never did I think of him just sleeping around for the fun of it, I turned my head away for only a second, but looked back at him, I could still see the sadness in his face, I moved slightly closer to him, him pulling me closer and gently wrapping his arms around my body.

“W-w-why did you stop three weeks ago?” I could hardly answer, I was still in shock.

“Well, because I didn’t want to screw things up with you, I didn’t want you to think of a million reasons why you shouldn’t be around me…” his eyes trailed off now, staring at my ceiling, I put my hand lightly across his bruised face, pulling it to face me again.

“Justin, it’s your life, whatever you want to do with it it’s up to you, you won’t screw things up with me, I’m not going anywhere, I promise” and with that I laid back down to his chest, giving it a light kiss from my lips, I could feel the smile escape from his mouth on my forehead, he moved his head slightly to give me a light kiss on my forehead.

I could lay here forever, the feeling of Justin holding me, it felt good, or better yet it felt right, I know that I told myself that I didn’t want a boyfriend or that as soon as I finish school I would move back to England, but this right here is what I would stay for, in my arms, this boy, my friend, my Justin.
