16. chapter 16
I didn't know how to respond. Should I tell him everything? I mean he is my boyfriend. We laid in bed with Luke wrapped around me, he's warm body kept me company while he breathed in my hair. I guess I will tell him the stuff about my family. He already knew about my dad dying when I was young. So I started just after that. "After my dad died my mom just kinda disappeared, not literally, she was still physically there. But she stopped caring about everything, even me, she started drinking and bringing home random guys. Until one night when I was 8 or so the 'random' guy stayed and never left. His name is steve, he's my step dad. When I was younger he would..umm..he would beat me and push me around" I started crying and luke pulled me closer into him. I continued "he would hit me so hard I couldn't stand back up. Mom knew and pretended she didn't so there was never a saving grace." I decided not to tell him about my last boy friend that's too much for me to Remember in one night. "And mom called me tonight telling me I was a worthless piece of shit and I needed to come get the rest of my clothes and stuff but I'm too scared to go back but I need them.." I finished. "Avery you're so brave, and strong. I'm always here for you don't you worry, don't be scared, I've got you" luke whispered in my ear. His warm breath tickling my neck in the best way possible. How did I get so lucky? Me and luke laid silently in bed wrapped in Each other's arms. He was mine.
