16. who is at fault
"This is all your fault!" Joy screams at me. "I-I... Know.." I feel he tears rushing harder. "You are a slut and I never want you near my son again. Look what you did to him!" she points at Calum. I start to sob. "I know what I did... I know... You don't have to remind me." I look over to Calum.
"I'm so sorry..." She steps infront of Calums bed. "Get out and do not come back." I nod walking out. "Annabelle?" I look up as my sobs start again. "Annabelle whats going on?" Ashton walks up to me putting his arms around me. After I explain everything he starts to walk away. "Where are you going?" He doesn't stop. "I'm going to fucking talk to him." I walk quickly grabbing his arm. "Please... Don't... It... It is my fault... I.. I c-can't let you... say anything." He sighs putting his arm around me. "Come on.."
"Thanks for bringing her here." I nod at the boy. "Yeah... I thought I should bring her here I didn't want her being alone.." I nod again. "Do I know you?" He shrugs. "I uh. Go to the same school as you. I'm kind of the outcast I guess." I nod looking down feeling embarrassed since he goes to my school. "I'm Ashton by the way. I have to go now." I nod. "See you around Ashton." I turn to Annabelle. "Hey. Stop. Its okay. He's going to be fine." I pull her into my arms walking her over to the couch. "Its all my fault..." I shake my head. "No its not. You guys were in a fight. Its not your fault." She starts to cry harder. "Read these." I grab her phone reading the texts from Calum. I look at her. "Its not your fault... You didn't do this to him." She sighs. "I hurt him.. I was asleep.. I didn't get them... I... I let him do this..." I shake my head. "No. You were asleep." I look over to my guitar. "Hey, do you want to make a video." she looks at me weirdly. "It will take your mind off things come on."
"Joy?" I walk into the room they told me Calum was in. "Is he alright?" She nods. "He has cuts.. Had to get his stomach pumped.. but he's going to be okay.." I nod sitting down beside her sighing in relief. "its that girls fault.. That slut.. Annabelle.. She did this." I stare at her in shock. "Woah.. Joy. They were in a fight. You can't honestly think its her fault. Wow. Couples fight all the time." She doesn't say anything for a while. I sigh. "She's still not seeing him." I look back over to Calum. "Do you honestly think thats the best idea? Thats why he's in here." She looks at me. "She's not seeing him."
