These Bruises

"Que sera, you'll never guess who I saw."
I was loved. I was hurt. That was repeated when I left you. But there are two other people who I love. As a single mom with two little kids in California, my life got better. It was six years. Six years since I last saw you. Six years since those little talks. Now you can see that these bruises that I've been hiding for those six long years mean. (Second book in Little Talks duology)


28. Busted

~Camille POV

I heard the door to the guest room slam open and footsteps walking towards the bed. I jolt awake when I was thrown off of the bed. Grabbing the bed frame, I hoist myself up to see Britta who looked like she just blew off steam.

"Hey, Brit." I slowly chuckle. "You okay?"

She takes a few deep breaths. "Camille, we need you to come downstairs."

I regain my balance, hop back into bed and throw the covers over my head. "Can't you wake me up in five minutes? It took me forever just to fall asleep! I'm still jet-lagged ya know. Oh, and you should know your room is across the hall from here."

She yanks the covers away from me and I look up. She was blushing beet red. "Please come down. This is pretty important." She leaves the guest room.

As I walk downstairs I hear the background noise from Guardians of the Galaxy. When I reach the bottom of the stairs, I see everyone in the party here in the family room.

"W..what's going on?" I stutter. Am I in trouble?

"Camille, we need to talk to you about something." Rachel admits.

My stomach does a flip. "What is it?"

That's when Eleanor stands up. "You know how Logan went back to California to do a script reading?"

That's a somewhat sigh of relief. "Yeah. He told me yesterday. Why?" Oh, no. He didn't get killed, did he?!

"Cam," Britta starts. "Logan lied to you. Josie here knows Rick Riordan and he told her that the script isn't even done."

I bite the bottom of lip. How could he? "Why would he lie to me?" I almost cry.

That's when Liam gets up holding the laptop. "I think this will shock everyone because I just found this." He hands Britta the laptop and she looks at the screen. Her eyes widen.

"What is it?" I ask.

Liam takes a deep breath. "I'm really sorry Camille."

Britta hands me the laptop and I look at the computer screen. After I looked at the article title, I almost break down.

"Movie Star Logan Lerman spotted with 'Sea of Monsters' Co-Star Levin Rambin."

I read the article, and spotted my name here and there. But as I refreshed the page, I saw something that made me finally break down.

Logan and Levin sharing a smooch.

~Mystery guy 2 POV

I sit in a small cafe, eating a slice of toast with jam. My phone began to ring and I see by caller ID that it was my colleague.

"What happened?" I ask taking a sip of coffee.

"It's the younger girl. The brunette one. She's crying." He states. I finish my coffee, leave some money on the table, and left the cafe.

"What about Britta?" I walk down the street.

"She's comforting her. 24637, when will we execute the plan? It's been a week!"

I sigh. "Look, I know a place where she went a lot when she was younger?"

"What is it?" My colleague asked.

"A place to calm her mind. A place that no one else knows about but me. The forest near her house."

[short chapter sorry. But I stayed home sick so I was able to write some.
