10. Episode 9

~Liam's pov~ About 4 hours ~ (1:28 PM)
My phone vibrated in my pocket. I pulled it to see that I had gotten a text for Xena.
Xena- hey. u busy?
Me- no y?
Xena- can u pick me up?
Me- I already told u...
Xena- so that's a yes?
Me- no.
Xena- wat?
Me- bazinga ;)
Xena- very funny D:Me- coming, dear!
I got into my car and drove to her bakery. As I pulled in front of the little shop, I could see Xena through the glass window. She had her neck craned, looking around. I smiled and texted her as I entered the shop. 
Me- I'd like 2 order a Xena plz.
I sat down at one of the tables as I watched her working at the counter. Her eyes met mine and she smiled as she texted. 
Xena- srry, we ran out of Xenas, but there's 1 that needs 2 be picked up. would u like that 1?
Me- has she expired yet?
Xena- pick-up was scheduled @ 1:15, but she's still ready 2 go.
Me- I'll take it :)
She pulled the apron off and hung it up on a hook. She waved to a few of her mates and then scurried over to me. I rose off my chair and stood so I was towering over her. She smiled up at me as she spoke.
Xena- Sir! Here is your delivery!
Then she jumped into my arms and I swiftly caught her. 
Me- Thank you! I shall enjoy playing with this Xena!
She looked up at me as I bit down on my lip with embarrassment.
Both- That sounded dirty!
We laughed together as I put her down on her feet. I began walking over to the driver's side, but Xena blocked me.
Xena- Hand over the keys, and no one gets hurt.
Me- And why should I?
Xena- Because...
She dug into her bag and pulled out a ziplock filled with cookies.
Xena- Because I's gots cookies.
Needless to say, I got into the passenger seat and gripped the handlebar, because I had a feeling it'd be on hell of a ride.

~Xena's pov~
Ever since I started driving, we haven't spoken a single word. Just a really lengthy awkward silence.
Me- So... Why aren't you talking? Cat got your tongue?
Liam- Actually... Your driving took my breath away.
Me- Too fast for you?
Then I pulled over near the curb of an abandoned bridge.
Liam- Why'd we stop here?
Me- I wanted to show you something. It's my little secret.
Liam- Ooh! A secret!
Me- On one condition, though.
Liam- What's that?
Me- You can't let the cat out of the bag.
He pretended to zip his lips, lock it, and throw away the key.
Liam- I won't tell a soul.

~Liam's pov~
This secret must be pretty big then. A promise is a promise.
Xena grabbed my hand and dragged my over to the crumbling railing that looked over the bridge and out to the canal down below. Xena licked her lips and then bit down on them. I took a strand of her hair and pushed it behind her ear. Then I gently held her chin up.
Me- You don't have to tell me if you're not ready to let this secret out.
Xena- No. I've held it in for too long. I need to tell someone.
Me- I'm all ears then.
She leaned over the railing, like she was looking for something.
Xena- See that rock?
She pointed down. I looked over the railing to find her pointing at a brownish-gray rock. I nodded. 
Xena- Well... Wait. You can't judge me, Liam.
Me- I won't.
Xena- Promise?
Me- Cross my heart and hope to die.
Xena sighed and then spoke quietly.
Xena- When I was 13... I tried to commit suicide here.
I knew that if I gasped, it'd come out really loud, but I didn't care. I gasped anyway.
Me- And what does the rock have to do with it?
Xena- When I jumped, I hit my head against something. And all my blood was gushing out onto that same rock.
Me- How do you know it's the same rock?
Xena- It has my initials carved in it. Before the suicide attempt, this was just my escape getaway. I'd come here when I wasn't at home.
Me- I'm sorry this all happened to you.
Man, her stories took place down in the dumps. They were all sad, depressing.
Her eyes welled up with tears. I pulled her into a hug, placing one arm diagonally down her back and the other one around her neck, close enough for me to touch her hair. She hugged me around the waist and sobbed into my chest. I stroked her hair and rubbed her back gently as she cried.
Me- Shhh... It's gonna be okay. Don't cry, love. We just have to be patient with God.
I guess that didn't help.
She sobbed even harder, drenching my shirt with her tears. She buried her face into my chest, crying and crying. I just held onto her and whispered to her that everything would be alright.
