Heyyyy double update bc ilysm!!
Bella's pov (dreaming)
I was sitting in a dark room an occasional echo was heard. Like someone at the other end was saying something to me but I couldn't hear them.
"Be......" The voice trailed off before it could even get a word out. I cried out loudly at the voices. "Speak louder!! I can't hear you!" I yelled. Silence.
I heard the sound of footsteps coming towards me getting louder and louder as they neared me. "Who's there?" I asked frightened. I started biting my nails, a nervous habit.
"Well we meet again, princess." I heard a dark familiar voice growl. I shuddered and held my breath.
Suddenly a light flicked on and I saw the mans face. He had dark, green eyes. They were like charcoal they were so dark.
"Do you know who I am?" He asked his breath once again smelling like liquor. I tried my best not to cringe, but failed. I backed away from him and tried to get up but saw I couldn't. I was in a chair. With ropes around me....
"Don't worry princess I'll take good care of you." He said. Just then I noticed his face transforming in to something...odd.
He had discarded his clothes and mine apparently were already off. "You do as I say." He said his voice morphing into a deep, gruff, scary voice.
"This is gonna hurt princess. Be prepared." He finally said as he was finally morphed into a mean figure known as the devil. And then it went black once again.
I thrashed and screamed only to be held back by something. "Please! Let me go!!" I screamed out sobbing.
"Let me go!" I thrashed against the thing holding me.
"Shh, shhh. Calm down love, it's okay baby. It's Ashton. Calm down." Ashton said soothingly rocking me back and forth as he sat on the edge of my bed with me in his arms.
"Ashton! It was so scary. It happened so fast. Please don't let me go. Please!" I said sobbing violently into his shoulder.
"I won't. I won't love. Just calm down. It's okay you're with me, you're alright." He said stroking my hair with his large hands.
I wrapped my arms around him tightly when he started to shift. "Hey, hey it's okay I'm just lying down. I'll stay here as long as you want me to." He told me. I shivered and cuddled into his chest clinging on to him like a koala.
"How d-did you find me?" I asked him still shook up from the nightmare I just had.
"I was going to the bathroom and I heard you screaming. I tried to wake you up but you wouldn't budge." He said gently wiping the tears that had fallen from my eyes.
"It scared me so bad, Ash." I said letting more tears fall. He shushed me and cuddled me again.
"Hey, don't think about it. Okay? Can you do that for me? I don't like seeing my little sister sad. It breaks my heart to see you like this. I'm not trying to pressure you but when and if you get ready to tell me what happened. Please do I would listen to you for as long as you want, alright?" I nodded, thankful that I had the best friend anyone could ever ask for.
"Thank you, Ashton." I said drifting off again as Ashton's fingers ran through my hair gently. "Anytime, babe." He whispered and kissed my head gently.
And then I went into a peaceful, dreamless sleep.
I woke up later, still wrapped in Ashton's arms. I only wanted him to stay because I know I can trust Ashton, he won't hurt me.
"Ashton?" I croaked my throat is sore from all the sobbing. "Yeah babe? What do you need? Are you okay?" Ashton asked quickly checking to see if I was okay.
"I'm fine Ash, I just wanted to hear you." I mumbled wrapping an arm around his waist and the other around his neck. I cuddled into his chest and sighed.
"You're the best big brother I could ever ask for. You know that?" I said to him. Ashton rested his head on mine.
"And you're the best little sister ever. You're right up there with Lauren." He said and I could hear the smile in his voice. I nearly aww'd at how cute their brother/sister relationship was. I could tell he wanted to look out for her and be there for her. He'd probably take a bullet for her and the people he loves.
"You really do love your little siblings don't you?" I asked looking up slightly so I could see his face. He nodded and smiled looking at the wall.
"I know I love mine. Or the one that I have." I mumbled with a small, sleepy, smile. "I didn't mean to hurt your feelings if I did. I just don't feel comfortable talking about it yet. I'm sorry, Ash." Suddenly he pulled back a bit.
"Babe, whatever it is that happened for you and Mali to react like that it must be important. You didn't wanna share it, I understand. Yeah I was a bit upset at first but then I realized I don't need to be mad at you for not being comfortable. It's not your fault. The boys understand too." He stated making me look at him. I nodded scooting up and putting my face in his neck so I could be closer to him.
"I think I wanna talk to them, just not about what happened. Will you tell them that? Please?" I asked Ashton slowly. I didn't really wanna talk to them, but the boys would be happy and that's all I care about. If the boys are happy, I am.
"Are you sure?" He asked scooting away from me so he could look at me. I nodded and smiled.
"Okay, I'll go tell them now." Ashton replied giving a wide grin showing off his dimples. I smiled and got up.
It took me a while to get down the stairs. A whole five minutes actually. When I got down there into the hallway before I got to the lounge room. I stopped when I heard Ashton's voice.
"Boys, don't pressure her. Okay? Please, the last thing we need is for her not to trust us. So don't ask about anything. If she wants to tell us she will, alright?" He said in a low voice. My heart warmed. I love Ashton so much, he's always looking out for me and making sure I'm okay, all the boys are I love having them around.
"Hey, guys!" I said quietly.
"Bella!" Luke yelled and stood up coming towards me. I tried my best not to flinch as he wrapped his arms around me. I soon melted into the hug and stuffed my face in his chest trying not to cry. I held Luke tight around his waist. "I missed you Lukey." I whispered trying not to let my voice quaver.
"I missed you too, Bella. Please, never do that again. I was so worried. I can't let anything happen to you I wouldn't be able to live with myself." Luke whispered rubbing my head. He bent down and kissed the top of my head softy.
"I won't, Luke. I promise, I swear I will never runaway again." I promised him. I heard Luke sniffle and my head shot up. "No, no, Lukey. Don't cry, please. I'm fine, I'll never leave again I promise, Lukey." I said wiping his tears. He sniffled again.
"I just don't want you to be hurt. Nothing can happen to you." He whimpered stuffing his face in my neck. My heart was slowly shattering at the sound of my little brother crying his heart out because of my stupid decision to run away from my problems once again.
"Shhhh, it's okay." I muttered rubbing his back and carding my fingers through his soft disheveled hair. He stood back up straight and wiped his face. I don't like this at all. Bad idea.
"Okay," he stated, "I'm fine now....I think." His gaze was casting to the floor, probably a bit embarrassed that he just cried like a baby. I don't want him to be embarrassed though, I would cry if he ran away and I didn't know where he was.
"Well, now that you're okay for now, let's get something to eat I haven't had food in like 3 days." I groaned. The boys laughed slightly and agreed.
Soon we were in the kitchen having leftover pizza and cookies. Very healthy.
"Oh my gosh I love papa johns!!!" I exclaimed. (a/n: my fave pizza is papa johns btw) The boys smiled at me widely and nodded in agreement.
When we got done with the pizza we walked back to the lounge room and talked. I rested my head on Luke's shoulder. "Can I tell you guys something?" I asked the boys.
I got a chorus of 'sure babe' 'of course' and 'always'. "I honestly, though I was never gonna see you guys again. It showed how much I loved you guys even though I was kind of mad at Ashton. I can't live without any of you. I can't even imagine my life without you guys, it's impossible." I said.
"Aawwwwwwh." They gushed at the same time.
"Shut up..." I said stuffing my face in Luke's arm.
The boys and I talked for hours until I started getting tired. I laid my head down and got the big blanket we all used the night Luke and I made up. I curled up and closed my eyes.
Someone petted my head gently. "If you're not going to cuddle with me, don't touch me." I said sleepily.
"Okay," a small voice said quietly.
