14. Chapter 14
They rocked at the concert. After the first couple songs, even Sammi and I were jumping up and down, headbanging. I felt someone tap my shoulder, Jakeb.
"Wanna go for a walk?" He yelled over the music. I nodded and we left.
"You know, I couldnt stop thinking about you since our date the other night."
"Or about what I wanted to do to you."
I stared at him questioningly as he pushed me to the side of the building, behind a dumpster. He sat on top of me, holding me down. I tried to scream but he covered my mouth.
He started to rip at my clothes. I tried to bite his hand, hit him, scratch him; but he kept going. At some point I started to cry.
When he was done, he stood over me and smirked.
He left me there; naked, cold, bleeding. How did this happen? How could this have happened to me.
I knew I have been gone for hours, and the concert would have been over by now. I was terrified to move. Somewhere, I heard my phone start ringing. I searched for it and found it in my ripped jeans pocket. I answered it.
"Alex, where are you?! We've been searching everywhere for you!" I heard his voice.
"Andy?" I asked, I knew what my voice sounded like: shaky, full of tears, terrified.
"Jakeb just raped me."
The other line was silent. Then, his voice, furious "Where are you?"
"The side of the building, behind the dumpster."
Then the line was silent. I knew he had hung up. I pulled my knees to my chest and sobbed.
Soon, I felt cold hands wrap themselves around me. I jumped. I looked up to see Andy holding me. I couldnt even begin to describe his expression.
He took his leather jacket and wrapped it around me. It wasnt exactly warm, but it was something to at least cover me up.
He picked me up, bridal style and carried me into the building. The guys all ran up to us and asked us what happened.
Andy just said, "Call an amulance."
"No" I said, speaking up for the first time.
"You're bleeding and we need to call the police." His eyes immediately softened when they got to me.
"I've dealt with enough hospitals and police for once in my life. I'm fine." He stared at me, unconvinced.
"Seriousy. I just want to get to some sort of bed and sleep."
After hesitating, he nodded and set me down. I walked over to the couch and sat down, putting my head in my hands. Andy explained to the guys what happened.
"Lets go beat that f***ing piece if sh*t's a**" CC yelled, angrily.
"Believe me, I want to." Andy said, glancing at me. Ashley walked over to me and pulled me into a hug. I cried silently into his shoulder.
We were sleeping in a hotel tonight. I shared a room with Andy and Ashley (they insisted), CC and Jake shared the other room. And Jinxx and Sammi got one to themselves. I went into the bathroom to change into something. Once in pajamas, I looked at myself in the mirror. There was a cut above my eyebrow and my hands were bleeding pretty bad. I found a first aid kit and cleaned them. I put a band aid on the cut above my eyebrow and wrapped my hands in gauze. They hadnt stopped bleeding. Then I walked back into the room and climbed in bed. I pulled the covers up over my head and tried to fall asleep. I couldnt. I layed there for hours trying to silence my thoughts or somehow turn off my brain.
At somepoint during the night ( I'm guessing 3 am), I heard a whisper.
"Are you awake Alex?" I heard Andy's voice.
I pulled the covers down to look at him.
He got off of his bed and walked over to me. He sat down beside me and asked, "Are you okay?"
I shrugged and looked away. He touched the side of my face and made me look at him.
"Tell me the truth."
I started to cry and fell into his chest.
"Its okay. Shhhh" He stroked my hair and held me close.
We fell asleep like that.
