2. Chapter 2
"Well...." Caitlin started. "When you guys left Vanessa came home apparently a mess and when her parents asked if she was ok she just said "Luke and I broke up" went to her room and stayed there. I tried talking to her about it but she wouldn't tell me what happened she would just lay in her bed starring at the walls and out the window not talking not doing anything. Her mom brought her dinner to her room and she wouldn't eat only a few nibbles and I'm pretty sure she didn't shower or brush her teeth or anything just stayed in bed. Well I had enough I was her best friend and she was leaving me so I told her she had to go out with me and she needed to get over you. Finally she showered up and we went out and hung out with some friends. We were at this party and she looked like a hot depressed mess that just followed me around. We were talking to a bunch of people from a different school and that's when she meet Tyler. He actually got her to smile and laugh and loosen up. Well after the party Tyler and Vanessa started to see each other more and more. He was like the opposite of you Luke, no offense, he was going into business, top of his class, intelligent classy the girl Vanessa's dad always dreamed of her dating. Well they started to date and she became happy again and she became her old self, dumping all bed new clothes and going back to the old preppy ones. They were the it couple he took her out to fancy dinners all the time and she introduced him to her parents everything seemed perfect. Suddenly she started to get these bruises and when we asked what happened she just said "oh I'm a clutz" and "it was an accident." She kept getting them though and stuck with the same stories. Then when we hung out Tyler would yell and her calling her and ugly bitch, stupid slut, fucking idiot and she just laughed it off. Well one day she saw us and she had a black eye and she said it was an accident and when I accused her of lying she told me Tyler hit her and that it was her fault she made him upset and not to tell anyone. Tyler started to abuse her more leaving large scars and she told me that he blamed her for him being upset saying "sorry I'm not Luke, you still love Luke, I know I'm not as good as Luke." And she believed him that it was her fault. Well I couldn't take it anymore so I told Alex. He was furious he knew something was up and went to Tyler and that's when she said if you hit him I will stop talking to you and Alex backed off till Tyler called him a fucking idiot and he turned around and punched him in the face. After that Vanessa moved out because her parents hated Tyler and tried to keep him from her and she hated seeing Alex and she moved in with Tyler. Everyone tried to talk her out of this relationship but she said that she couldn't because she loved Tyler and that she finally stopped forgetting about Luke, that's when I showed her the song. I know wherever you are was about her and she did too well she punched the screen and I made it worse lucky for me she kept talking to me. Things kept getting worse and worse and I didn't know what to do or who to turn to. When she watched the video she had that look in her eyes when she saw you Luke, that look of I'm still in love with him and those lyrics I knew you still maybe liked her. Like I said I don't know what happened between you two but I knew that maybe you could talk some sense into her." The room was quiet and Luke put his head on Vanessa's stomach. "I didn't want this to happen." He said as he started to cry. The guys came over to comfort him.
A few days went by and Vanessa's health was getting worse and the guys were talking about having to go back on tour. Luke didn't want to leave but he knew he had to. Their was nothing he could do, Caitlin's dad was a cop and made it his mission to find Tyler and put him behind bars which happened. He was found at a pub drunk flirting with a bunch of girls.
Everyone was sitting in the hospital room like usual not much talking between everyone just silence when suddenly Vanessa's eyes began to flutter awake "Vanessa!" Luke yelled
