14. Chapter 13

My hand reached out in Rae’s direction but it was already too late, she was gone. My eyes skimmed back over my phone checking I wasn’t seeing things. Reiss actually made a twitter, he tweeted me that means he’s okay right? But what if it’s a cry for help? Do I have enough time or am I running out of it. I don’t know if I should tell Rae, she’s losing herself as the days pass and I fear this could push her off the edge if this turns out to be false hope.

Where is Reiss now, he could be anywhere, he could even be in the same city, or far far away. I put my phone back in my pocket and went back home, Rae could meet me there later when she was ready to talk.

Once Rae was home she didn’t talk to me, instead curling up on our bed pulling my arm over her. I snuggled my nose into her neck and fell asleep.

~ ~ ~ ~

Rae was becoming more and more withdrawn as the days passed. She never talks to me, even when she’s sad which she is, she keeps it to herself. I remember the days when she used to tell me everything - even if it was stupid - it was because she wanted to.

“Rae” I tugged her arm.

She looked at me and smiled, but I knew how fake it was.

“Why don’t you talk to me anymore?” I asked.

“I do?”

“No you don’t, you never do”

She took a long moment before she spoke “there isn’t much to say.”

“Before we came here Rae, we made a promise do you remember?”

“Don’t leave?”

I rolled my eyes “never keep secrets, why are you keeping them from me?” even though I’m sort of keeping one from her, but this is way different.

“I’m not I just have nothing to say”

“I don’t understand why everything’s changed between us, is it because of my past?”

“It’s not me who’s letting your past define you, it’s you.”

“Bullshit” I spat.

“We’re really going to argue?”

“You know I don’t want to argue, but I don’t see why you’re being so difficult.”

“Everything is fine” she emphasised each word.

“No it isn’t” I copied her tone.

“Do you know what I’m going to be late for school, I’ll see you later” she passed me.

“Since when have you cared about school?”

“Since it means being away from you” she roared stabbing me in the heart.

Well she can fuck this, I’m not going into school. This is when I liked to do stupid things – when I’m mad – she used to be the one who would put me back together, but she’s breaking me. I rubbed my eyes stopping any tears from coming and lay back down on the bed covering my head. When did everything turn to shit? I have to stay strong for her, and for Reiss wherever he is.

Rae’s POV

I wanted to go back up there tell him how sorry I am for saying that and I was wrong. But I couldn’t, because I needed to protect him from myself. Kelly and her lot won’t leave me alone, they won’t stop torturing me with their words, with their threats. They want to be the ones who split Louis and me up, but it looks like I’m beating them to it.

Since it means being away from you I shuddered at my harsh words. Of course I don’t want to go to school, he knew me better than that and I lied to him. I’ve brought myself up not to be a liar, yet that’s all I seem to do nowadays. I wanted to kick myself, shout and tell me that I’m strong, that I’m good enough. But I couldn’t, instead I let people like Kelly and Louis’ ex-girlfriend Shell tell me I’m not. Of course I believe them, their words sink in and that’s all I think about.

“Where’s Louis today?” Kelly asked as I stepped into school alone.

“I don’t know” I muttered.

She smiled “things not going well with you two?”

“None of your business” I grunted going the opposite way.

Stuart bumped into me “hey you” he smiled.


“Something’s wrong want to talk about it?” he asked.

I shook my head, I don’t want to talk about it to anyone.

“Shit, want to go for a drink or something?”

A drink sounded like a good idea right now, god what is happening to me? This is what makes it worse is that I know what Louis will think of me, how low he will think I have turned. I don’t want to disappoint him, but I can’t take it anymore.

“Sure” I heard myself agreeing before I could object.

Louis’ POV

“Dude you need to get down here” Harry chuckled.

“Where are you?” I asked.

“At Billy Joe’s, your girl is trashed.”

“Excuse me?”

“You’ve forgotten her already eh?”

I shook my head “Harry don’t fuck with me.”

“I’m not, come see for yourself.”

After hanging up I ran outside of the house grabbing my keys. What is Harry talking about, Rae? It can’t be her, she doesn’t drink she hates alcohol after her dad and what it did to him.

But my eyes were deceived when in front of me was Rae on top of the table dancing provocatively. My body went into ninja mode as I pushed past everyone pulling her down.

“What the fuck are you playing at?”

She smiled “my Louis.”

“Rae” I shouted.

“She’s fine” Stuart put his hand on her shoulder.

“What are you doing with her Stuart.”

“Having fun, well we were until you got here” he smiled.

I lent close to him “you better fucking stay away from her or I swear to god.”

“You’ll do what huh hit me? Because somehow I don’t think your Rae will approve.”

I ignored him lifting Rae over my shoulder.

Once we were home I put her carefully on the bed, she was still awake observing me.

“Bed time” she patted the bed.

“No Rae.”

“Why?” she asked playfully.

“Because I said so”

She backed off and covered her face with her hands. Soft cries came from her mouth making me feel bad. I sat down next to her pulling her close to me, she buried her head into my chest.

“Why did you do this?” I asked softly.

“I wanted it to go away” she whispered.


“The pain.”

I clenched my eyes closed, there was nothing in this world that made me hurt as much as knowing she was in pain.

“How long have you felt like this?”

“It’s never stopped.”

“We’ll find him Rae.”

She didn’t answer, she had drifted off in my arms. I didn’t have the heart to move her so I held her close and let her sleep.
