I kind of woke up when Luke woke me sounding worried. I just kept my eyes close. What he said, that very moment I felt safe. I felt loved, loved for the first time since I was 9 when my mom died. He just met me last night and quickly wanted to protect me. I was just happy with him. I haven't been happy for a long time. I was always scared. I just wanted to stay in his arms forever. I fell back asleep with a smile of happiness.
2 hours later
I woke up and tried to get out of her bed without waking her up. I went out to the living room to see everybody sitting watching TV. When they saw me they muted the TV and just stared at me. I told them about Alex and told them not to say anything about it around her. I told them that I was going to go out and tell the police.
"What if Alex is up when your still out?" Michael asked.
"I'll pick up some food to not make her wonder" I replied
"NANDO'S!!!!!!" Michael yelled but not loud enough to wake Alex up.
"Ok." I replied and went on my way to the police department.
3 hour later:
I woke up and looked at the time. It was 10 AM. I got up and stretched and went to the bathroom. It was quiet. Everybody must be still asleep. I went to watch some TV. I flipped through the channels then there was the channel 16: 10 AM News. I saw Max's house.
NEWS CHANNEL LADY: "Good morning this is Samantha Dylans here at Max Bemis' house, he is now getting arrested with murder of his wife Alison William Bemis 6 years ago. The remains where found in the backyard. Bemis is also getting arrested for physical and sexual abuse of his step daughter Alex Elizabeth Bemis reported just 3 hours ago.We will be right back with more news after the break"
I was just shocked. I couldn't move. Then suddenly 3 guys including Michael walked into the room to see me starring at the TV.
"How?" I said a little bit above a whisper.
"How what?" Said the black haired guy
"How did they find out?" I replied
"Ummm...." Michael mumbled
"How. Did. They. find. Out!?" I paused in between every word. "Wait, where's Luke?" I asked
Then suddenly the door opened. I got up running towards the door to see Luke standing there with a bag of food in his hand. I didn't really realize that I was crying.
"WHY THE FUCK DID YOU DO!" I yelled at Luke
"Ermm, how did you find out?" He said then looked over at the 3 guys that shook there head at Luke
"IT'S ALL OVER THE FUCKING NEWS LUKE!"
"I didn't mean for it to get on the news."
"YEAH SURE, NOW I HAVE TO SEE HIM IN COURT!"
"ALEX! I didn't mean for it to get on the news, I just wanted to tell the cops so he won't be searching for you door to door to drag you back. I care about you! It's better to see him getting send to jail than seeing him everyday beating you to death. I don't want that to happen and I have a feeling you don't either." Luke said then running to his room slamming it and locking it.
Again I was shocked. He told me he cared and didn't want anything bad to happen to me again to my face. I... I… just broke down on the floor. I just made the only person that cares about me get mad at me. I think... I think I... I... Like him.
