4. Chapter Three

Violets POV

"James, I have to go. Luke is here." I said. James is my boyfriend. "Why? It's only Luke." James replied. "I have to. We just talk, and stuff, so I want to be alone when we talk." I replied. He nodded, and I hung up.

"Hey." Luke said as he walked into my room. "Who were you talking to?" He asked. "Oh. Just James." I replied. He sighed. "Can't you just act like you like him?" I asked. "Anything for you." He replied.

"So, anything about Lilly?" I asked. "No. She was fine in school. Nothing threatening." He replied. "Good. How's your ankle?" I asked. "It's good. I didn't really hurt it." He replied. "That's good. I feel like we can't have a normal conversation anymore." I replied. He nodded.


Luke's POV

"Luke!" Someone yelled, as I walked through the halls. It was James. "Come with me." He said. I nodded, and he leaded me into a closet. "What's this?" I asked, when we walked in. There were four guys in the closet. "I want you to stay away from Violet." James said. "I can't do that." I replied. "Oh, well you gonna have to." He replied. He punched me right in the gut. Again. And again. And again.

Violet's POV

I was in class, when I got winded. "Vi? You alright?" Alyssa asked. I jumped back, and fell to the floor, holding my stomach.

Luke's POV

"Now will you stay away?" James asked. "N-no." I replied. He kicked me right in the gut, and punched me in the face. All I could think about was Violet. She could feel this pain.

Violets POV

I was screaming in pain. "Vi!" Alyssa yelled. "Find.... Luke!" I managed to say. I managed to get up, and walk. "I'll find him." I said. She looked at me weird. "Luke where are you?" I asked myself. "Help." His voice echoed in my head.

I heard noises from a closet. "Yes! In there vi! I'm in there!" His voice said. I walked to the door, and it was locked. "It's locked!" I said. "Find a way." His voice said. There! I picked up the keys, thank you janitors, and unlocked the door.

"James?" I asked. I looked to the floor, and saw Luke. All bloody, and bruised. "James." I said. He kicked Luke, which of course made me fall to the ground in pain. "What the hell?" He asked. He kicked Luke again, and I screamed in pain, and kicked again. And again. "Stop! Please!" I yelled. He stopped, and just left.

"Luke..." I said crawling over to him. "Ow." He said. I helped him up, and we walked out of the closet. "Vi! Ally told me you screamed- oh my god! Luke what happened!" Leo said. "Call dad. Tell him he needs to come get us." I said.

Luke's POV

"Thanks." I said to Violet. "I felt it. I knew you were in trouble. I couldn't leave you there." She replied. I smiled.

"Luke, what happened?" Mr. Carson asked as we got into his car. "I got a little beat up." I replied. "Vi, you alright?" He asked. "Yea. A little pain." She replied.

Violets POV

"Violet, why don't you go get Luke comfy." Dad said. I nodded, and took him upstairs. "You didn't have to come for me." He said. "Yes I did. We are in this together." I replied. He nodded.

"Here, put ice on your eye." I said. He took my ice pack from me. "Luke, you're all bruised." I said. "Oh thanks. I didn't notice." He replied. I laughed. "See you're fine. I'm the one who will have the marks." He said. "And those marks will prove that you didn't do anything wrong." I replied. He smiled.

"The only thing is, James saw my pain." I said. "When all he did was kick you." I said. "Well, let's hope he doesn't say anything. We don't need people being afraid of us." Luke replied.
