11. Chapter 11

~~"What are you doing in here?" Bella asked him as she watched him move closer.

"You look so hot tonight," Dean slurred, his eyes wondering down her body.

"Just leave me alone Dean," she snapped, making her way past him and towards the door.

"Don't be like that baby," he swayed as he stood in her way and grabbed hold of her wrist tightly. "We never did finish what we started the other day." His grip tightening making her wince a little.

"Why don't you go finish it with the girl you were groping just seconds ago." Bella could feel herself getting angrier as he continued to grin at her.

"I could always let her join if you want?" he winked suggestively.

"You're disgusting," Bella scoffed, attempted to leave again but his grip on her wrist tightened even more which made made her cry in pain and before she knew it she felt herself being dragged up against the wall.

"You didn't find it so disgusting yesterday, don't you remember Bella? The way I can make you feel, you love it really," he hissed at her.

Bella was frozen, the look in his eyes were serious and filled with anger. She felt like screaming but she knew nobody would hear them, she prayed for someone to walk in already.

"That was a mistake," she told him, her voice slightly shaky.

"Is that right?" he growled, making her wince in pain again as he twisted her arm a little.

"Let me go!" she cried out.

"Not just yet sweetheart," he replied, pushing his lips roughly against hers.

Bella tried to turn her head away, but his lips caught hers every time. With as much strength as she could, Bella pushed his away and slapped him across the face. She watched him as he tumbled slightly and decided to quickly bolt for the door. Thinking she was free, Dean's hand slammed the door shut making her scream in shock. Now furious, Dean grabbed hold of her once more, her back colliding into the door behind her as he pushed his body firmly against her own.

"So you like it rough huh?" Dean smirked evilly. Fear suddenly engulfed her as he tried to pull her towards one of the cubicles. Bella struggled against his hold, trying to break free, but it only made his grip even tighter. She could feel herself giving up a little, he was too strong for her, she knew there was nothing she could do. They were half way in the cubicle now, her back against the door. Bella screamed out for help but Dean cut her off by forcing his lips onto hers.

Her mind went into panic, she knew she had to do something, she couldn't let this happen! She knew the minute the door was closed it would be over, she would have no way of getting out. She felt him try to back her up and away from the door, his hands rough and bruising against her skin.

"Stop fighting Bella, you know you want this. Just give up," he growled into her ear making her cry out in fear.

"No, Dean please, please don't do this to me," she pleaded, hoping he would give up and let her go.

"Stop fighting!" he screamed, turning her body around so he could hold her down and into the cubicle. It was no use, no matter how hard she fought he was too strong for her.

"I didn't want to do this Bella," Dean sighed as he spun her around and back up against the door.

"Don't do this Dean, please don't hurt me."

"I don't want to hurt you Bella, it dosen't have to be this way," he grabbed hold of her waist and pushed himself against her. "Just give into me, it'll feel much better if you do."

"No, I don't want this."

"Have it your way," Dean growled, tightening his hold on her waist. The sound of Dean locking the door sent chills through her whole body and she finally started sobbing, her whole body trembling. This was it, she couldn't escape now. She was going to have her virginity stolen away from her and it was all her fault.

"Bella?" The sound of Sam's voice surrounding the bathroom, at first she thought she was imagining things but when Dean froze and listened she knew he had heard it too.

"Bella, are in you in here?"

Bella's heart rose and she tried to scream for help, but Dean was faster and held his hand over her mouth, pushing hard against her body.

"Shh," he whispered, silencing her with a deathly glare. When she heard the music grow quieter all the hope in her had died and they were alone once again. Bella sobbed again as she felt Dean's hand wander up her dress.

"Don't worry, i'll make it good," Dean muttered in her ear as he started kissing down her neck.

"No!" Bella screamed and pushed his away, Dean quickly recovered but Bella kept on pushing and punching him trying one last time to escape.

"Enough!" Dean shouted, pinning both of her arms above her head as he pushed her body back.

His lips were back onto hers again and this time she couldn't move. With his free hand she heard the sound of his belt and knew what was going to happen next, she couldn't let him do this she thought, she had to do something. As he continued to kiss her, Bella quickly brought her knee up hard against his groin making him bite her lip in the process. She pushed him away from her as Dean cupped his lower parts in pain.

"You bitch!" he yelled in agony.

Bella took her chance and immediately unlocked the cubicle and ran towards the door, rushing out without a second look. As she ran down the tiny hallway, Bella looked back to see if Dean was behind her she when felt herself colliding into somebody's arms.


She looked up and almost cried in relief when she found Scott staring down at her worriedly. "What's wrong, what happened?" he asked her.

"He....he..," she heaved between sobs.

"Who?" he demanded, shaking her lightly. She tried to control her sobs but it was almost like her speech had been taken away from her.

"Bella, talk to me," Scott pleaded with her as he cradled her shaky body.

"There you are," Sam gasped as she spotted them both with Liam at her side. "Oh my god Bella, what's wrong?"

"What happened?" Liam demanded.

Bella tried to speak,  but as if right on time, a furious Dean came tumbling out of the bathroom making them all turn to face him. His eyes locked onto hers as he made his way towards her and Bella felt herself cowering back into Scott. Scott quickly reacted and moved her trembling body towards Liam, allowing him to hold her as Scott marched towards Dean, instantly grabbing hold of his shirt and throwing him against the wall.

She felt Liam tug at her arm, "Stay with her," he told Sam. Sam simply nodded hugged her arm as they both watched Liam make his way towards Scott who was punching and kicking Dean. Liam pulled at Scott and had to use all his strength to drag him away from Dean.

"Dude, get the hell off of me!" he yelled at Liam.
"He's not worth it Scott!" he yelled back. "Come on man, Bella needs you."

Scott was hesitant at first, but eventually she could see the anger in him slowly starting to simmer. Scott turned towards Dean who was slumped against the wall. "You stay the fuck away from her or I swear to god I will kill you," he warned him.

Dean scoffed back loudly, "Gladly! She dosen't put out anyway." Anger rose in him once more as he lunged towards him but Liam gently pushed him back.

"Good luck Liam, little tip though. She likes it rough, guess she has more in common with Cammy then I thought," Dean snickered earning a small smile from Liam. Bella thought that was the end of it, but she was caught by surprise when Liam swung around and landed a hard punch along Dean's jaw, sending him down to the floor.

They both walked back towards the two girls, leaving Dean sprawled on the floor who was now holding his jaw in pain.

"Come on, let's go," Scott said, putting his arm around Bella as they all left the club.

Thankfully nobody had witnessed their little incident by the bathroom and for that she was relieved, the last thing she needed was more gossip going around. Once outside, Sam gave Bella a big hug and told her a friend inside was giving her a ride home but that she would call her tomorrow. Bella nodded and told her she would be ok, giving Sam one last hug before she disappeared back inside. She turned around to Scott asking Liam to wait with her while he brought his truck around, she really didn't mind walking, but she wasn't in the mood to argue about it right now.

Bella wrapped her arms around herself as they both watched Scott walk down the street, the cold air clinging to every inch of her body. Liam settled his gaze on her the minute Scott was out of view. She could hear him moving towards her but she kept her head down, she knew she probably looked like a complete mess right now. She felt his warm hand rest under her chin as he lifted her face up and gently wiped her tears away. His focus moved to her lips, a frown crossing his face, she thought for a second that he was going to kiss her, but instead he lightly grazed her bitten lip making her hiss in pain. Dean had bitten her really hard making it still very sore.

"I'm sorry," Liam frowned once more.

Bella gazed down at her feet again. "I'm so embarrassed," she mumbled quietly, she wasn't even sure if he had heard her.

"What are you embarrassed about?" he asked softly. She scoffed a little, "Look at me," she sighed, throwing her arms up in the process.

"I am," he breathed, making it sound more like a double meaning. Bella couldn't figure out why he acted this way with her? Why did he have to make her feel this way?

"I just wanted to forget everything tonight," she whispered to herself but loud enough for him to hear. "I know," he said, looking down at her sympathetically.

He held her arm and gently pulled her into his chest, wrapping his arms around her securely. "It will be alright," he told her. "I'm sorry you had a lousy night."

Bella let out a small sigh and pressed herself closer into his embrace. "Not all of it was," she answered truthfully, letting him hold her until Scott's truck came into view.

As Scott approached them, Liam opened the door for her, her whole body felt sore and completely worn out. Scott thanked him again before he shut the door. Bella gazed out of the window at Liam who gave her a small wink, she smiled weakly at him before Scott started to drive away. Tonight was supposed to be perfect, how did it all get messed up so fast, how could Dean do that to her? He was a completely different person tonight, she couldn't believe that she had felt sorry for him at one point. If only she had listened to everyone then none of this would have happened.


Bella awoke the next day with a pounding headache, events from last night pouring back to her, making her groan in annoyance. She was hoping to wake up and find out that it had all been a bad dream, but sadly it had all been real. She gently sucked on her bottom lip, it was still a little sore. She slowly sat up in bed, her body hurt so much. Dean had shoved her so hard against the wall and the door several times that she wasn't surprised how weak her body felt.

Bella reached for her phone on the nightstand but stopped halfway noticing a gigantic bruise that had formed around her wrist. She carefully inspected it expecting it to hurt, but to her surprise she couldn't feel anything, the only time she did was if she applied pressure to it. She slowly got up out of bed and walked into her bathroom, stopping dead in her tracks when she looked in the mirror and took in her appearance. Her hair was a big curly mess, her makeup from last night was all down her face from where she had been crying and to top it all off, her lip was completely swollen and red. She looked like a train wreck she thought.

She washed her face, making sure to remove all the makeup and then pulled her hair up into a messy bun. At least she didn't look like Cruella de Vil anymore. She stood in front of the mirror and lightly touched her swollen lip. How was she going to explain this and her wrist to her mum? Feeling another pain in her back, Bella pulled her t-shirt off and turned around to look at her sore back. There was one light bruise on her right upper shoulder, but thankfully it wasn't noticeable. The sound of her bedroom door being opened sent her into panic mode, Bella quickly threw her top back on and grabbed her dressing gown that was thrown across the radiator, she quickly wrapped it around herself, enjoying the warmth that was still there.


She sighed in relief when she realized it was just Scott. Walking out of the bathroom, she came to face Scott who's eyes immediately focused to her lip. She sucked on it lightly, wishing it would just disappear.

"Are you ok?" he asked, his voice full of concern.

"I will be," she answered. "Scott what am I supposed to tell my mum?"

As if right on cue, Bella's mum walked into her room looking super pissed off, uh oh she thought.

"I got a call from your school yesterday and they told me you never showed up for school. Would you like to explain to me what you were doing?" she asked sternly, her arms crossed.

"I'm sorry mum, I just wasn't feeling too good," she lied. Well technically it wasn't a lie, she really didn't feel good.

"But yet you were well enough to go out last night?" she shrieked. Yep she was done for.

"You know better then this Bella. I know things have been hard lately but...what happened to your lip?" Oh crap, she thought.

", " she stuttered, she had no idea what to say, how could she explain this? Quick think, think!

"It was my fault!" Scott blurted out. Bella snapped her head up to look at him, he had never lied to her mum before, then again neither had she, was he going to tell her about Dean? "We were messing around, dancing and my elbow accidentally hit her lip, it was an accident. Sorry."

Bella looked at her mum, waiting for her response, hoping it was enough for her to believe. "Scott, can I talk to Bella alone please," her mum asked politely.

"Sure," he answered.

Bella felt her stomach churn as she watched Scott leave, did she know they were lying? She walked over and sat on Bella's bed, patting the space next to her for her to sit down. As soon as she did her mum turned to her with an odd look on her face.

"Bella, is everything alright?" She felt instantly uncomfortable, she didn't understand why it was so hard to show or tell her parents how she really felt? She knew part of it was because she didn't want to show them how weak she was, she never liked being weak, she hated to show it. So why was it ok for Liam to see she wondered?

"I know it's hard to talk about," her mum continued. "But I'm worried about you, I don't like what I'm seeing. This behaviour isn't you," she finished.

Bella knew her mum was right, she knew she had been acting different, she just didn't know how to get back to normal?

"I know, I don't know why I'm being like this," she told her. "I mean, I guess I do a little...I just can't really explain why." Bella looked up at her mum, tears welling up in her eyes. "I miss her mum."

"Honey, I miss her too."

Her mum pulled her into a hug. They both sat there for a while just crying with each other, letting their grievance between them show for the first time.

Bella spent that later evening washing dishes as her punishment, thankfully Scott had stayed behind and offered to help her.

"I can't believe she is making me wash all of this by hand!" she complained, looking over the pile of dirty bowls and plates.

"I can't believe she baked a cake and a dozen cupcakes just so you had more stuff to clean," Scott chuckled.

"Why is this funny?" she asked him, clearly annoyed.

"It is a little," he replied, trying to keep a straight face. She let out a light chuckle of her own. "She's good, I'll give her that," she said, reaching for another bowl.

"Yeah, you're just lucky I'm nice, otherwise you would be doing all of this by yourself," he informed her. She turned to him and stuck her tongue out playfully.

"You going to be ok at school tomorrow?" he asked seriously. She let out a sigh before answering, "I honestly don't know? The thought of running into him..."

"I won't let anything happen to you, if he so much as even looks at you -"

"Scott! I don't want you getting in anymore trouble. If he touches me ok, but otherwise please, just don't," she told him. "Promise me."

He rolled his eyes with a big sigh, "I promise."

"Thank you."

Bella didn't know what to do, she couldn't skip school again but she didn't want to be anywhere near Dean, just thinking about it made her feel sick. In fact she really felt sick and sligtly dizzy.

"I'll be right back."

"You ok? You're really pale," Scott placed his hand on her back but Bella backed away from him.

"I'm fine I just..." Unable to finish her sentence, Bella rushed out of the kitchen and up the stairs to her bathroom where she emptied her stomach in the toilet. Bella stayed like that for a few minutes until she felt Scott come behind her and tie her hair up for her.


"I don't want to see him again," she sobbed.

"I know."

Scott sat beside her and pulled her into his arms, "You're going to be ok Bella, I promise you."
