12. Chapter Eleven

Violet's POV

"Good morning Mrs. Hemmings." I said as I walked down the stairs. "Well someone is happy." She replied. I smiled.

There was a knock on the door. "Chloe." Mrs. Hemmings said. "Is Luke here? We had a-" "oh, hey Violet." She said. I smiled. "We had a breakfast thing to go to today." She finished. "I'll go get him." I said.

"Luke, wake up." I said. "Mhm." He said. "Luke. Chloe's here." I said. He wrapped his arms around me. "No." I squealed.

I tried to get out of his grip. "The more you struggle, the worse it's gonna get." He said. I was breathing heavy. "What's wrong?" He asked, letting go. "Sorry. That's what what he told me when he did this." I replied, pointing at the tattoo. He nodded.

"So, chloe is here." I said. "I wanna stay here with you." He replied. "You can't. We have training today." I replied. He whined.

"Luke you... Oh sorry." Chloe said, as she walked in on us kissing. "It's fine. I was just waking this sleep monster up." I replied. "Sleep monster?" He asked. "You're a crazy sleeper." I replied. I noticed him giving Chloe a look. "Luke, get up." I said. He sighed. "Fine!" He yelled. "Be nice." He said. He poked his tongue out at me.


"Who is this Ms. Carson?" Mr. Dolan asked. "This is Chloe, my cousin." I replied. "Why are you two so late?" He asked. "I had to show her around." I replied. "Where were you?" Luke's voice asked. "Talking." I replied. He looked at me. I smiled. He rolled his eyes.

I walked up to Luke, and kissed him. Chloe cleared her throat. "Oh. Sorry." I replied. "Training today." I said. "I know. Torture today." He replied. I nodded.


Violets POV

"Violet, I want you to go upstairs, your father will tie you to a chair, and leave you there. Luke will have a certain amount of time to get to you, if he doesn't get to you in that amount of time, you will die. Well not really, but." Mrs. Hemmings said. I nodded. We don't want our parents to know we are dating yet.

Dad tied me to a chair, and set the timer. He left the room, and I was left alone. "Luke, I don't like this." I said. "Just hold on. I'll get you. I promise." His voice replied.

Luke's POV

"Get the obstacles down Luke!" Mom yelled. I beat them up, and ran farther. "You have five minutes to get to her!" Mom yelled. "Luke, please. I'm hyperventilating." Violet's voice said. "I'm coming. I promise." I replied.

"Mom, please stop. Violet isn't doing well." I said. "Beat the obstacles. If this really happens, they won't let you stop, and save her." Mom replied. 1 2 3 4 5, obstacles were down. And I was finally running up the stairs.

Mr. Carson was standing there. "You're late." He said. "Five minutes late." He said. I sighed. "She would've been dead by now." He said. "Can you untie her?" I asked. "Nope." He replied.

Violet was hyperventilating, I don't know how he couldn't hear her. "Vi. Vi. Look at me." I said. She didn't look, she was still breathing heavy. "Violet. Look at me." I said. She looked up. "I'm here. It's me." I said. "Luke." She said. "It's me. I'm here. I was always here. You're safe." I said. She calmed down. "Don't let me get tied up again." She said. Mr. Carson was still in the room. "I won't baby. I won't." I replied, untying her.


Violets POV

"Inside. Now." Dad said. I sighed. "I didn't do anything wrong." I said. "You didn't do what I told you to do. I told you to get to Luke in a certain amount of time, and you didn't." He said. "Dad, it's my first time doing this. Give me a break!" I yelled. "A break! A break. Are you kidding me! When you go out and save everyone like you, people won't give you a break. They will kill you, or Luke, or anyone if you don't get there on time!" He yelled. I rolled my eyes.

"If you didn't realize, I was having trouble breathing." I yelled. "But training is more important than me apparently." I said, running upstairs. "I want out." I said. "You can't Vi. You can't take back anything." Luke replied. "I wanna try something." I said. "Like what?" He asked. "I wanna get in touch with our parents."
