I woke up too Marley Starring down at me with sad eyes. My whole body was shaking. All I could think about was that I have to get away. I have to get away from him! I was breathing hard.
All I could think of was the pain in my body, the fear, and the fact that my friends are in danger.
"DON'T LET HIM HURT ME AGAIN! MARLEY! I NEED HELP! HE'S GONNA KILL ME!" I screamed without thinking.
I then felt myself go blank again, and I passed out again.
I woke up again, but this time It was too Ashton's face. I was laying on a couch.
I'm still scared too death, not just for me but for them. My body wasn't shaking as much as the first time I woke up. I need to keep myself calm. I don't wanna pass out again.
"MARLEY SHE WOKE UP!" Ashton yelled
I had a huge head ache. I rubbed my head. I sat up and said "ow" because my body was still burning. I looked around. I'm in Ashton's house. I can't be here. He could be in trouble with me being here. I have to get out.
Marley soon came running over with more ice and but it on my leg. There was ice all over me. Ashton and Marley starred at me with sad eyes.
"Addison are you okay?" Marley asked worried.
I shook me head. "I have too get out of here. you guess can't let me stay here." I said still shaking my head. I started to get up. I grounded from the pain. I pulled myself up and started walked toward the door.
"Addie no! I don't know what's going on but you can't go anywhere until I do" Ashton said about to stop me but I stopped him. "No Ashton let me go" I said
I got to the door and slowly opened it. "Is there anything I can do?" Marley asked
"Actually I...l...I need you to...." I started saying but I stopped when head hurt more and more. I couldn't get away from the loud ringing in my ears. I opened my mouth to say something but nothing came out. I stumbled over. Marley put my arm around her and walked me to the couch. I wasn't passed out because I could see everything, but the ringing was preventing me from hearing.
Marley said something to Ashton and Ashton came running over with a bottle of water. They made me drink it and I soon started to feel better. The ringing slowly stopped.
"I'm fine I'm fine" I said over and over again and after drinking more water. I don't remember the last time I had water.
"I think she just needed water" Marley said to Ashton to calm him down.
I know I'm gonna have to tell Ashton something. I really don't wanna say the truth but do I have choice? Maybe Marley already told him so I don't have too.
"Addison when was the last time you had water?" Ashton asked
I shrugged "I don't remember" I mumbled.
"Addison you have to stay here until you, we know if it's safe" Marley said nodding serious
"I can't Mar, and you know why" I said with a straight face.
"I don't care, They will never know your here" She said I think forgetting that Ashton was here.
"What's going on?!" Ashton said confused
Marely looked over at Ashton remembering he was there and said to me"I didn't say anything Addie! I swear"
"Addison is someone hurting you?" He asked me serious
Okay, I'm gonna have to tell him. I can't lie to him....or can I? No. I can't. I have to tell him.
"WHO?! I swear to god if it Louis I'm gonna-"
I interrupted him "It's my dad" I said not really thinking
Marley could tell I didn't really mean to blurt it out and said "Ashton you can't tell anyone! NO ONE! the only people who know is you, Calum and me. Her dad is why I passed out, that could happen to you if you say something" She said starring at him serious
Ashton just kept looking at me with sad eyes. "Addison I'm so sorry" he said and hugged me tight. I hugged him back. He let go and said "Addie you can't stay there, NO! I won't let you! Just look at you! Next it could be worse! You can't stay there." He said
"I agree, last time I let you go back and you almost got killed. NO" she said shaking her head. "No, your not going back" She said again
"I agree with you guys, why do you think I left? I just can't stay here." I said
"He doesn't know where I live Add, you can stay in my guess bed room, I'll tell my mom that you had no other place to go and she'll be fine. My dad doesn't give a crap what I do so don't worry" Ashton said
"I feel alot better with you staying here then on the streets" Marley said nodding
"I guess I don't have much of a choice then huh?" I said looking down
Marley smiled at me reassuring. "Look Addison, Luke told me today that we are all a family, he's right, and family keeps each other safe. Family is all about caring for each other. I would let you stay with me, but there's kinda no room for you." she said sadly "But hey, I'll be right next door, literately. If you need me tell Ashton and he'll tell you where to go. okay?" she said lightly smiling
I nodded. "are you gonna be okay?" she asked
I nodded "Yeah, I guess. I mean I'll never be perfect you know" I said chuckling "But I'll be fine. I know I'm safe here I guess." I said shrugging
"You are" Ashton said nodding also lightly smiling.
I nodded at him and smiled back "I have to go now, but I'll see you in the morning." she said
I smiled and nodded. She gave me a longer hug and got up and leave. she was at the door and stopped. "Oh, and I don't think it's a good idea for you to go to school, School might be the first place your parents look" Marley said
Ashton nodded in agreement. Then Marley slowly walked out and closed the door.
"So um, tomorrow, I'm gonna miss school so I can watch over you." Ashton said sitting next to me on the couch.
"No I don't want you to give up school for me" I said shaking me head
"Hey, it's only for the first day your staying here just in case you know" Ashton said
"okay, if you want to" I said shrugging
There was a long awkward silence. Just then his mom came down. Oh no she's gonna kick me out!
She walked where Me and Ashton were sitting on the couch.
"Oh um, Hello what's your name?" she asked smiling
"Hi Mrs.Irwin I'm Addison" I said she shook me hand.
"Mom, Addison had no where else to go, she I told her she could stay in our guest bed room for awhile is that okay?" Ashton asked
"Yeah sure, stay how ever long you need dear" She said too me and walked into the kitchen.
wow, she's so nice! So different then my mom!
"So do you want me to help you up the stairs?" He asked me
"No I'm fine" I said
"Yeah" I said
He got up "After you then" He said
I got up and my body hurt with pain everywhere. Then I fell back onto the couch.
"That's what I thought" he said chuckling
He picked me up bridal style "Is this necessary?" I asked laughing
"Of course you could fall! and that wouldn't give the Ashton Hotel a very good rap you know." He said making me laugh
"we wouldn't want that" I said as he started walking up the stairs with me
"Of course not! That would just be a travesty" He said looking at me nodding
I laughed. We soon got up the stairs and he took me to my guess room. It had light blue wall paper and a queen sized bed. He set me down on the tan sheets. The bed was very comfy compared to my bed at home.
He stood next to the bed.
"So my mom's room is down stairs, and my room is right next door so if you need anything I'll be right there" He said smiling
I smiled back, even though it wasn't really a real smile. I still can't stop thinking about how Ashton is in danger. I know I won't be able to sleep knowing that any day my dad could come in here and punch the lights out of Ashton.
I guess he could tell I was thinking about something hard because he asked "Hey Add, what's wrong?"
I don't wanna bring him down. "oh I'm fine" I lied.
"Are you sure?" he asked with a worried look
"Yeah" I said giving him another fake smile
"Okay, well if you need me I'll be right next door, don't hesitate to ask me anything." He said smiling "Oh, I almost forgot, your still in dirty cloths, um I'll go get you something to sleep in" He said and walked out.
I honestly was fine with sleeping in what I had on, but okay.
He quickly came back hold a long shirt. "This is one of my T shirts that I don't wear, you can sleep in that, and tomorrow I'll talk to Marley about you guess going shopping for some cloths" He said nodding
"Okay" I said
"Alright well, I guess I'll see you in the morning, good night Addie" He said waving
"Good night" I said smiling.
Oh! I almost forgot! He saw me kiss Louis! I have to talk to him about that! What if he's hurt?
"Wait Ashton!" I said loudly
He turned back around "Yes?"
"About how you saw Louis kiss me, I was forced I tried to stop but he just-"
"Say no more. I know you didn't do anything wrong. I know it was forced but Louis is seriously messed up, I swear to god today, I was so close to punching the lights out of him" He said straight face
"Oh don't worry about it, I'm sure he'll stay away from me." I said nodding
"That's good he's no good" He said shaking his head
"yeah, well thanks for the shirt" I said smiling lightly
"No problem, good night" He said smiling
I smiled back "Night"
He left the door cracked open.
There was banging on the door. I watched Ashton open the front door. My father appeared. He brought out a gun.
"NO" I yelled
My father smirked at me evilly. "You shouldn't have left Addison" was what he said before he pulled the trigger.
"NO NO! WHY!? HE'S GONE! AND NOW HE'S NEVER COMING BACK!" I scream crying on the floor.
Marley looked threw the door "What's going on?" She asked
My Father shot her.
"NOO! WHY! WHY! MARLEY!" I said crying "she's gone" I said in between crying.
He opened his mouth and said "ADDISON WAKE UP!"
I woke up and sat up breathing hard and shaking. Thank freaking god that wasn't real. I turned to my right and found Ashton looking at me with his arms wide open. I threw myself in his arms.
"He killed you Ashton, and M-Marley" I said crying in his arms.
"shhhh It's okay that's never gonna happen" He whispered stroking my hair. I let him hug me for awhile until I was calm.
I broke away from the hug and wiped the tears out of my eyes.
"I'm tired of being sad" I said shrugging
He sat next to me on the bed and put his arm around me.
"Then don't be sad"
"I wish it was that easy" I said shaking my head slowly
"Yeah, But I'm sure I could help" He said
"Oh really?" I asked sarcastic
"Yeah" He said and started thinking.He looked up at me, and smiled at me when he thought of something. "I HAVE AN IDEA!" He said
"Shh I don't wanna wake your mom up" I said putting a finger to my lips
"Oh she's a heavy sleeper, unlike me" He assured me
I nodded. He smiled at me "I'll be right back" He said and skipped out of the room.
I wonder if he does like me....Probably not. If he does I wouldn't even know how to handle it.
He soon came back holding a spoon and something behind him back. He sat on my bed. "So when ever my sister was sad, or mad or something my mom always gave her this" He said. Then he took out some ice cream in a bowl.
I smiled. He handed me the ice cream. "Thank you" I said and took a huge bite. I think the last time I had ice cream was when we all went to the park and weirdly left early. Ice cream always brought happy memories for me.
"You like ice cream huh?" He asked
"Yeah it reminds me of when my parents weren't drinking and they actually loved me, Every Wednesday after School my dad would take me to get ice cream. He would get a Large banana split, and I would get a small strawberry ice cream cone. Then we would 'Surprise' mom with a random flavor" I said and lightly smiled then chuckled at the thought of my old life.
"I like it when you talk like that" Ashton said smiling
"Like what?" I asked confused
"When your pretty eyes bright up when you remember something happy, I love it" He said shrugging.
"Well thanks" I said
"No problem" He said
"Well I uhh better go to sleep, I don't wanna be a zombie tomorrow" I said chuckling
"Yeah" He said and got off of my bed then slowly walked out.
Ashton is so nice, and sweet, but I can not start liking him. Mostly because I don't want to have my heart broken. I already have enough to deal with, I don't need to add love too.
