"B-but he, he said I-it was a A-accident" I cried.
"Ayla, listen to me. If if was an accident which it clearly isn't he wouldn't keep doing it" Ashton said bringing his hand up to my cheek.
"B-but he s-said" I whispered.
"I know he said it was an accident but listen, If he really meant it he would have gone and got some help to stop himself from hurting you." He sighed.
I dropped my head and continued to cry, knowing Ashton was right. If cal really meant it he would have gone and got some help. But he didn't.
"I think it's best if you stay here for a few weeks, let those heal" he whispered signaling to my bruises waist.
"I can't leave Calum for a few weeks! What if he gets hurt!" I yelled.
"I'll tell Mikey to look out for him" he replied.
"No buts, you're staying here. I don't care what you say it's not ok for him to treat you like this. You're too good of a person to be out through all this pain all because Calum doesn't have a fucking punching bag." He said getting mad.
"You know what! I could tell the police on him! Then he'll know what hits him, fuck! I'm so mad! I could just scream" Ashton growled making me flinch.
"Hey? Ayla why'd you flinch" Ashton's sweet voice asked as he slowly rubbed my back.
"I- I guess I just get scared when I hear yelling" I shrugged standing up straight.
"Ayla, tell me what he has done to you" Ashton said with sincere eyes.
"I can't. I promised I wouldn't" I said walking over to the door.
"If you don't tell me I'm going to the police." He threatened.
I spun around with angry eyes, if looks could kill Ashton would be read right about now.
"You wouldn't" I whispered.
"Oh I would, I would tell them how you have bruises head to toe from Calum, and how he physically and mentally abuses you. He could go to jail you know that?" Ashton said stepping closer and closer to me.
"He's supposed to be your brother, why would you talk about him like this?" I questioned.
"Because I care about you A, I want the best for you. And that is for you to be away from him, let him get the help he needs and let yourself recover from what has happened" he said kissing my forehead.
"But I love him" I whisperd.
"I know you do but right now I think both of you need some time apart. Now, how about we go to maccas and get some chicken nuggets?" He asked giving me a small smile.
I nodded and took his hand in mine, mine were so small compared to his. I never seem to get over how big they are.
"You right there?" He chuckled looking down at our hands.
"Yeah, they're just so big" I giggled.
"That's not the only thing that's big" Luke said with a straight face.
"Nows not the time for dirty comments luke" I glared.
" I wasn't meaning that, I was hinting at the massive ass bruise on your stomach! Ayla you need mum to check that out!" He said touching it softly.
"N-no! I'm fine now please can we just stop." I pleaded pushing his hands away.
As I was about to grab the door handle it swung open to see Calum.
"Baby, I was so worried. Where did you go?" He asked pulling me into a hug and kissing me all over my face. I winced as my bruise made contact with his hip making him pull back.
"You ok babe?" He asked running his hand up and down my sides.
"Yeah, just from when I fell over last night." I lied.
"Oh yeah, that was silly of you. Now let's go we have to go home" he said through gritted teeth.
I turned around to ash and gave him pleading eyes, hinting that I didn't want to go home.
"oh uh Ayla, Harry wanted you to come see him play footy tonight. I promised him you'd come" Ashton said scratching the back of his neck. I looked up at cal and you could tell he was thinking about it.
"Ok, but only because it's Harry. I've gotta go, james is waiting for me. Love you" he said kissing my head before running out.
Thank god I wasn't going with him. James scares me, especially since he tried to rape me. I could feel myself starting to breath uneasily which is t good, I have nothing here to stop myself from having a panic attack.
"A, you ok?" Luke asked walking over to me. I shook my head.
"What's wrong?" He asked worriedly.
I couldn't get any words out. And now I'm starting to not see him, my words are gone, my vision is going but I can hear him screaming at me.
I breathe harder and faster thinking that will help me but no it doesn't. Ashton walks out of the bathroom and notices me.
"Fuck Luke, she's having a panic attack. Help her" he says angrily.
"I don't know how to help her" he yelled back.
"Don't fucking yell dick! Get her water and an aspirin or something" he growled. He then brought me into his large, soft, muscly tabbed arms and swayed me back and forth.
"Shhh, you're ok. Just breathe. Copy me" he whispered kissing my head.
I slowly started to breathe like Ashton and before I knew it, I was asleep.
|| A S H T O N ||
I slowly swaye her back and forth until she was asleep. It wasn't long before she was lightly snoring signal log she was in a deep sleep. I carefully stood up with Ayla in my arms and I walke over to where Luke was sitting.
"Let's go" I whispered.
"what? Where?" He asked frantically.
"Calm down. To your mum, or mine they're both working tonight so we'll take her to them and then they can check her out. Now quick before she wakes up." I hurried him.
He quickly grabbed his keys and he ran out the door bringing the car as close as it could come. I slowly slid her into the back seat and then ran over to the drivers seat.
"Wh-" I pushed him over and sped off.
I know Luke's driving and if he were to drive Ayla would have woken up. With in a matter of 5 minuets we were at the hospital, both our mums knew we were coming so Liz was waiting outside. We jumped out and I slowly picked Ayla up. She let out a few mumbles which I could exactly make out. Liz lead us into the back entrance and then into a room where mum was waiting. We walked in and I laid Ayla on the bed.
"What's wrong with her?" Mum asked worriedly.
"You can't be too loud or rough you might wake her up but these are the problems" I said as I carefully slid her top up to show her bad bruising.
"Fuck! I mean woah, that's bad how did it happen?" My questioned.
I gulped at the question. It's not my place to say, she'd hate me if I told anyone how she got these. She would never talk to me and that isn't ok. She's like a sister to me.
"Ashton fletcher iriwn! How did she get these" mum growled.
"Uh I-it's not my place to say. Sorry" I mumbled.
"Well them we're going to wake her up and ask her our selves" mum threatened.
"Go for it" I said with a smart ass tone of voice.
Liz shrugged and leant forward and shook her lightly.
"No James don't!" She mumbled.
I raised an eyebrow in confusion. Liz shook her again.
"HELP ME!" She screamed before opening her eyes. She jumped in shock when she saw mum and Liz standing at the end of her bed.
"W-why am I here?" She asked sitting up.
"Babe you needed to be c-"
"I told you I didn't want to be checked! I know what's wrong with me so leave it! I don't care what the doctors say or what you say I love him and I'm not doing anything to put him away. Weather he needs help or not! So Ashton stay out of it! " she yelled looking me in the eyes.
"Ayla sweaty, did Calum do this to you?" Mum asked stepping forward.
" I am not answering that" she said looking away.
"Yes." I spoke for her.
"Ashton" she said sounding hurt.
"Its time he got help, weather it be from us or from rehab" I said holding her hand.
"Why, he's fine! He can do it on his own. And I'm sure he wouldn't be happy if he found out about this! Now let me go to Calum" she cried.
"No! Ayla, you're not going near him again ok. He's no good for you" I said grabbing her.
"B-but he said he loves me" she sobbed.
|| A Y L A ||
My lip trembled as I said that sentence. I knew it wasn't true, how could he love me. I look terrible and I'm a terrible person.
Ashton but back his tears before opening his mouth.
"Loved Ayla. He loved you, he's not the same Calum hood anymore. He can't keep hurting you, you're too good for him and you're too good of a person to be hurt physically an mentally. It's time you left, it's time you lived." He said biting his lip.
"Ok." I sighed.
"Ok?" Luke asked.
"It's time he got help. I know he loves me, it's just the monster in him doesn't want him to love me. I'm not going to stop but I know deep deep down he needs this, and so do I. " i said now crying.
"Hey, baby girl you're doing the right thing. I promise in a few months hell e back to the loving Calum Thomas Hood, that everyone knows and loves" Liz said holding me as I cried.
"I know. I know. I know" I repeated over and over again.
I feel as if I'm going mental.bon side of my brain is yelling at me saying I've screwed up and then the other side is telling me I've done the right thing.
"Baby girl, you ok?" Liz asked.
I nodded and pushed myself off the bed.
" I want to tell Calum. Now." I demanded. Not rudely, I just wanted to make my point obvious.
"Of course! But we all need to be there. So why don't we wait until tomorrow?" Liz asked.
"Okay, but please tell me I'm doing the right thing just one more time" I whispered.
"Baby, I promise you you're doing the right thing. And I don't lie" Ashton said kissing my head.
I gave a small smile before laying my head down on the bed. Liz got off my bed and joined Anne out in the hallway, Luke and Ashton stayed with me in my room.
Luke fell asleep as soon as Liz turned off the lights, but me I didn't shut my eyes at all. I couldn't. I was sending my boyfriend away to rehab. What type of girlfriend would do that.
"Hey, you ok?" Ashton asked from the uncomfortable looking chair.
"No" I cried quietly.
"What's wrong? Is it about tomorrow?" He asked worriedly
"Yeah, I'm such a bad girlfriend. Also, I'm a bad bestfriend" I cried. He raised his eyebrow at me, making me giggle.
"Come and lay with me. Please" I pleaded. He was quick to jump to his feet and run onto the bed. He jumped up beside me and rested his prickly head on my chest.
"Better?" He asked.
"Much better" I giggled.
"Good, goodnight baby girl" he said closing his eyes.
"Night ash" I replied, I closed my eyes and I was actually falling asleep. Who knew I Ayla Reynolds could fall asleep at a time like tonight.
"I love you Ayla Reynolds. More than Calum could" Ashton whispered before placing a small kiss onto my plump lips.
I didn't move, did he think I was asleep. Or did he know I was awake? All these questions were running through my mind before it opened itself.
"I love you too Ashton"
