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)


43. What happens at the bar, stays at the bar

~Louis POV~ 

You know, never in my life would I know I'd be helping out a police force with a kidnapping case. But hey, little did I know when I was 18 that I'd make it passed my own X-Factor auditions! 

"Where are Liam, Zayn, and Kristen?" I ask tapping my foot impatiently. 

Niall retires to the couch where he begins to channel surf on Mr. and Mrs. Carter's television, "Well, Kristen did say her apartment was pretty far from here." He states.

"Is that is the fact that the people who kidnapped my own sister are metaphorically under the tip of our noses why?" Katie says. "I'm sorry for being so forceful." For a minute there, I was like what the fuck? But then I realize it's mood swings.  

Britta went through it twice, Becca went through it, Rachel went through it twice, Liz just gave birth (same as Rachel), Eleanor-my wife-went through it. 

I'm lucky I have a dick.

"People are here!" Louisa says from the dining room window that faces the driveway. Niall walks over and picks her up looking outside. 

"They're back." He says. 

"Get all of the stuff ready." Captain Patson, or Zack as he told all of us to call him, says walking into the living room. Becca turns on the laptop and Zack opens a program with some fancy schmancy stuff on the screen. "Louis, here you go." He states handing me a small thingy. That's the earpiece in which I will wear because I'm going to be driving Kristen to the bar and sit somewhere where I will be unseen. I think that will be in the store next door. 

The garage door opens and into the living room comes Zayn, Liam, and someone who isn't Kristen because she is wearing a lot of makeup, a little black dress, and her hair is curled. 

I'm used to seeing her in a ponytail even though she's only been helping us for a week!

Zack gives her an earpiece and she puts in her ear. "You might feel a sharp pinch in three, two, one." He says clicking a button and Kristen jumps.

"What the heck was that?!" Kristen yells.

"New technology we're testing." Zack types some stuff. "I got this idea from an old episode of Doctor Who."

"Is it that episode with Peter Capaldi?" I ask. I'm British!

"Which episode?" Dang, I like Zack. I see why Katie married him. "Alright everything is set up. Good luck." Zack shakes Kristen's hand and my hand. 

"Come on, Kristen." I say leading her out the door. We walk to the car, I start it up, and we drive to downtown Amelia Islands. 

~Britta POV~

"There was an old farmer who lived on a rock. He sat in the meadows just shaking his fist at some boys who were down by the crick. Their feet in the water, their hands on their marbles and play things and at half past four, there came a young lady she looked like a pretty young creature she sat on the grass. She pulled up her dress and she showed them her ruffles and laces and white fluffy duck. She said she was learning a new way to bring up her children so they would not spit. While the boys in the barnyard were shoveling refuse and liter from yesterday's hunt. While the girl in the meadow was rubbing her eyes at the fellow down by the dock. He looked like a man with a sizable home in the country with a big fence out front. If he asked her politely, she'd show him her little pet dog who was subject to sit. And maybe she'd let him grab hold of her small tender hand with a movement so quick. And then she bent over and sucked on his candy so tasty made of butterscotch. And then he spread whipped cream all over her cookies that she had left out on her shelf. If you think this is dirty, you can go bleep yourself."

I am about to go insane.

~Kristen POV~

I am currently walking into the bar.

I am currently being shoved around by people.

I am currently getting touched in the butt.

I am currently getting stared at my chest by drunk guys.

Why did I agree with this?!

"Go sit at the barstool." Louis says like he is stalking me but he isn't because he can't see the computer screen back at the Carter Household. He told me that everyone is texting him what the hell is going on because they can see what I see and can hear what I say but they decide not to speak. 

I sit at the stool and take off my jacket because it is fucking hot in this place! 

A bartender walks over and sets a shot glass of what I think is vodka in front of me. "Umm...I didn't order a drink." I state.

"Oh, I know. But the man over there ordered it for you." He says pointing to I think his right but it's my left.

I turn my head and see a man with brown hair and brown eyes. He's smirking at me and I give a shy smile.

But all of the sudden...

The screams came in.

One name stood out.

This is Britta's ex-husband, Charlie Lunt, about to flirt with me.

We are so close, Britta.
