I let a small tear fall from my eye.

 

Lexi: Uh , um what are you doing here?

Brooklyn: Well I’m watching the boy that loves me.

 

I stepped back since she was getting closer to me.

 

Lexi: And that is?

 

Brooklyn: Let me just tell you one thing , sweetie… I don’t care what I have to do , but I will be getting Justin back. He loves me , not you… Are we clear?

I ran off , grabbing my phone and my purse. I could tell Lainey took off after me but I was already out of her sight.

I sprinted up the stairs and ran into the bathroom stall, dropping to the floor. I covered my face trying to hide my tears. What was I thinking? Justin probably still did love Brooklyn. She was better than me , everyone was. I rushed into the relationship… It was in the matter of a day and all of my feelings changed , but that didn’t mean he TRULY cared about me. What if him and Brooklyn were talking again? I thought everything was going to be okay , I guess not.

I heard someone fly through the bathroom door.

Lainey: Lexi? Lex? Are you in here? Please come out.

I opened the door , still crying and trying to wipe my eyes.

Lainey: Awh Lexi , come here babe… It’ll be alright.

 

She pulled me into a tight hug , patting my back. I broke down… I couldn’t hold it in anymore. I sobbed in her arms.

Lainey: Shhh Lex , Listen , it will all be okay. I promise you it’ll all work out.

Lexi: N-no it won’t. He doesn’t l-love me.

Lainey: Are you kidding me? He loves you more than anything.

 

I pulled out of the hug , shaking my head.

 

Lexi: No , no , I need to leave… I need to go back home. I can’t be here anymore. I’m calling Ashley to come pick me up.

Lainey: But… Lex-

Lexi: Just stop , okay? I don’t want to be here. You better not say a word to ANYONE.

 

I picked up my phone and dialed Ashley’s number , trying to calm myself down.

 

Ashley: Hey Lex!

Lexi: Please , please come pick me up… I need to come home. Please , I’m begging you , pick me up at the ice rink.

Ashley: Um , is everything alri-

Lexi: Just come pick me up okay. Now.

 

I broke into tears again. Lainey stood there looking like she was going to cry just because of how hurt I was.

Lainey: Do you wanna go wait by the door?

We walked through the hall in silence. You could still hear me sniffling , but we just walked without saying a word.

_

I gave Lainey a hug and walked out the exit , getting into Ashley’s car. I closed the door and Ashley stared at my tear stained cheeks.

 

Ashley: Girl , what happened?

Lexi: Justin is what happened… Brooklyn , Justin , I just… I can’t talk about it right now.

I bursted into tears and Ashley gave me a sincere look.

Lexi: … Just… Please bring me to my house. I need to be alone.

Ashley could tell I was having an anxiety attack , just by how much I was shaking and crying… So she knew not to drag it on any longer.

We pulled up to my house and both Ashley and I stepped out of the car.

Ashley: You want me to stay here for awhile? I can go get you a coffee?

I shook my head and started walking to the front door.

Lexi: No… I’m fine… I just need to be alone. Thank you for the ride though.

 

Without saying anything she got into the car and closed the door while I walked inside. I made my way over to the fridge , grabbing a water bottle,  then looking down at my phone.

 

‘17 missed calls’

 

From: Mom – sent @ 7:02 p.m.

Where are you?!?

 

From: my bestie for lifeeee<3

Lexi , where are you???

 

From: my bestie for lifeeee<3

Seriously Lex , this isn’t funny… Where are you??

 

I let another tear slip from my eye… I was so hurt , I couldn’t respond.

I felt a tap on my shoulder and I turned back.

 

Lexi: Dad?!?

 

 

 

Justin’s POV:

 

The game was over and Ryan and I got changed so we could go see Lainey and Lexi. We walked up to the seats and only my mom and Michelle were there.

 

Michelle: Great game boys!

Justin: Thanks! Um… Where are the girls?

 

Ryan took off behind me. I turned my head to see Lainey walking down the stairs… Alone.

Ryan: Lain!...

He picked her up and spun her around , kissing her cheek.

Ryan: … I missed you baby.

Lainey: Haha I missed you too Ry.

 

I stood there with a confused look on my face. Where was Lexi? Why wasn’t she with Lainey?

Justin: Lainey , do you know where Lex is?

Lainey took my arm and pulled me off to the side.

Justin: Wait , what’s the problem? Did I do something?

Lainey: Well , she’s the problem…

She turned my head and there I saw Brooklyn staring straight at me.

Justin : What?? Did Brooklyn say something to her? Oh my God…

 

I was pulled back by someone.

 

Brooklyn: Hi baby…. I’ve missed you.

She placed her hand on my cheek , rubbing up and down my jawline.

Justin: Get the hell off of me , Brooklyn. What did you say to Lexi? I don’t love you , I love Lexi. Now get a reality check and tell me what you did.

Brooklyn: Oh Bieber , nothing bad. You don’t need to worry about it baby.

I pushed her arm off of me.

Justin: Don’t call me that… And I do need to worry because she’s my girlfriend.

 

I walked back to my mom , Michelle , Ryan , and Lainey.

 

Justin: Where is she? She isn’t answering any of my calls or texts.

 

Lainey leaned in and whispered to me.

Lainey: She doesn’t think you love her anymore. You need to find her before she does something bad. She told me she was going ‘home’ but that could mean anything.

 

I gave her a half-hug and started to run to get to my car.

 

 

 

Lexi’s POV:

 

Dad: Who are you texting there?

I backed up… Why was he in my house? He was supposed to be in jail.

 

Lexi: No , why are you here? Leave. Right now. Or I’m calling the cops. LEAVE.

Dad: They released me… It’s not like I killed anyone.

 

Was he serious? I didn’t even consider him my “dad” anymore. He treated me like I was some wild animal…I wouldn’t let him back in our house.

Lexi: I’m telling you right now , LEA-

I was knocked to the ground. He punched me right in the gut , so it was hard to move anywhere. Tears started flowing from my eyes.

Lexi: LEAVE IM NOT KIDDING.

Dad: I’ll leave when you tell me where your mother is.

 

I wasn’t going to tell him where she was… He would hurt her , I know he would.

Lexi: I don’t know , okay?

I felt a sharp pain in my gut once again. He had kicked me because of my response. I screamed in pain.

As I tried to get up , he punched my cheek , making me fall down once more.

Lexi: STOP! I’m calling 911!

 

Dad: Oh really? With what?

He held me down with his foot , then lifted my phone up in the air. It was hard to talk , considering how much pain I was in.

Lexi: H-how did you-

I closed my eyes , trying to re-gather my surroundings. I heard my phone ring , so I looked up.

 

Dad: One new message from ‘my bestie for life’…. And this person is telling you they love you? Have you not told me something?

 

I tried to get up , but I was one again pushed back down… This time by getting kicked in the face. I was pretty certain I had just broken my nose.

 

Lexi: LET GO OF ME!

I screamed bloody murder and cried more than I ever have before.

 

Lexi: LET. GO. OF. ME.

 

 

_

I heard someone open the door.

Voice: Lex? Lexi? Where are you?

I screamed as loud as I could under the tape that was covering my mouth. I couldn’t get up since I was tied to the vent on the floor.

Voice: Where are you?!?

I tried to open my eyes. I looked up and saw Justin running over to me.

Justin: Lexi , oh my God.

He knelt down and took the tape off of my mouth , as I still cried because of the pain I was in. He untied me and picked me up.

Justin: Baby , what happened?

I buried my head in his neck , trying to stop me from crying.

He lifted my head up , wiping the blood from my face.

Justin: Tell me , Lex… Please.

I let out another cry again and he used his thumb to wipe the tears.

Lexi: I-I

I couldn’t speak , I tried so hard to… But I couldn’t. He gently pulled my head back to his neck and kissed my hair.

Justin: I’m never letting you out of my sight again. I love you too much.
