I jump up to a loud banging on my door. I ask who it was and it was Tara.
"Hurry and open up! Its an emergency!" I quickly got up and opened the door. She slammed it behind herself and locked it.
"Whats wrong?" I asked her calmly because I thought she was just over exaggerating something.
"They are home...." I froze still. Justin slowly sat up and was about to speak when my dad's voice was heard calling my name. I felt like I was going to pass out. I started shaking. We heard the footsteps walk up the steps and down the hallways towards my room. I made Justin run into my bathroom and lock the door. My dad knocked on the door and I unlocked it and answered it. I peaked the door open just enough for him to see my face.
"Yes?" I smiled as if I was hiding something. It was obvious. Tara hopped onto the bed and acted like we were having a girls talk.
"Anna, I need answers to my problem!" She was a great actress.
"Can this be quick, Tara and I are talking about some serious stuff here." I said quickly. He quickly caught on that something was up.
"Open the door."
"It is open. See." I put my arm out of the door and was about to pull it in when he pulled me out of my room and barbed in. Justins Duffel bag was sitting on the floor beside my bed. He walked towards the stuff.
"Anna, who is here?" He had a slightly angry tone in his voice.
"I don't know what you're talking about."
He picks the bag up and starts going through it. All's he needs to pull out was the condoms and then shit hit the fan. My mom walks into the room and asks what's going on.
"Your daughter is hiding someone somewhere in this house." He said angrier than once before.
"I think he's just overreacting mom." I reassured her. Then he shows her the condoms and gives a really expression. He sees that my bathroom light is on. He starts walking towards the door when I quickly jump and stand in front of it.
"You probably don't want to go in there. I kind of bled a bit on the floor so I am cleaning my floor with vinegar. Nasty stuff." He pulled me from in front of the door. He tried to open it and realized that it was locked.
"So you always lock your bathroom when you're cleaning with natural products?"
"I don't want to forget and slip and hurt myself." My dad pulled the key from his pocket and started to unlock it. I grabbed his arm and started pulling him back.
"Nancy, control your damn daughter!" He shouted at my mom. She grabbed me and pulled me back. I pushed her off and went to hold the door knob but it was too late. The secret was revealed. Justin stood by my sink. My dad turned to me and started to approach me. I backed up. I knew what he was capable of.. Justin started to slowly walk towards us. As soon as I was corned in my room my mom tried pulling him away, but he pushed her back. He started yelling in my face. He hit me. Mom grabbed Tara and pulled her out of the room. I covered my face and my dad grabbed my arm squeezed them and harshly pinned me to the wall. Justin then stepped in. He grabbed my dad and threw him off of me. My nose started bleeding and Justin took his shirt off and wiped my nose off with it. He stood in front of me to keep my father from hurting me even more. My dad got up and charged at Justin. It quickly turned into them throwing fists at each other. My dad cussed at him and flipped because he was sleeping with me. Justin started punching back.
"You want to hit me because I slept with your daughter but you just hit her? You want to swear at me because I'm doing what you haven't been there to do for her in years? When daddy fucks up who do you think she comes crying to? Obviously not some asshole that hits her for her trying to find love that she couldn't get from her own damn parents. She was hospitalized a month ago and almost died. Who do you think she called instead of going to either of you? Me. She can't even trust you guys to tell you about what happens in her daily life because then shit like this happens. You can hit me and beat me all you want, but you WILL NOT put your hands on her. She's pleased you for her 17 years of existence, it's time for her to please herself and be her own person. She won't be here to please you guys forever. I love your daughter, whether you believe me or not. Shes the best thing that has EVER happend to me. No amount of money or fame could compare to her. But obviously you wouldn't realize how special ANY of your kids are since your company is more important. Tara told me that since i came here shes had the most fun shes had for years. Your littlest girl told me that. I came to fix what you messes up awhile ago. Ill be damned if you lay a hand on any female." Justin threw many punches. My dad was covered in blood but still threw him off and punched him.
"You have no idea the sacrifices I have made for my children. For all I know you could be with my daughter just to sleep with her. You're famous, you could have all of the chicks you desire. Don't waste your breath trying to tell me that you love her and that I'm the one doing wrong. You're the one doing wrong by sleeping with a seventeen year old while you're twenty-one. You're using her. You're a punk, and you will NOT see my daughter again. My lawyers will contact yours." He kept hitting him. Justin punched him one last time before saying the last thing he said to my father.
"You don't know what love is. Don't tell me how I feel." I then pulled Justin off of my dad and pulled him down the hallway. We ran out to my car and jumped in. I put the keys in the ignition and turned the car on. My parents and siblings ran outside and Tara ran towards the car and I pulled away before she reached us. I went as far away from home as possible. I stopped at a secluded area and sat there. Justin wiped his face off. I put my head in my hands and I just shattered. Tear after tear rolled down my face as I replayed the fight in my head. Justin got out and opened my side. He got me out and we went on a wall into a more forest like area where we could be totally alone. We stood in front of a huge tree and he pulled me in to him. I was shaking so bad that my legs started to collapse. Justin slid down the tree and held my head to his chest.
"Its going to be okay.. I promise.."
"We left Tara, she didn't want us to leave her there..." I cried harder.
"Anna, we needed to get away. She knows that. We will make it up to her.. right now we just need to focus on what our plan is.."
"You're facing charges Justin.. several.." he forced my chin up and stared into my eyes.
"Don't worry about me. I have ways of having some of them dropped. We just need to focus on legally getting you out of that house before you're eighteen. You can't stay there." I nodded. He continued, "None of what that asshole said is true. He doesn't know us. Anna I love you, I want you to be my wife. But at this point it's too early, you're still young, and you still have a life to live. I would never use you for anything. That's why I made you wait. If it was just about the sex it would've happened way sooner, and I would've left by now. I'm still here. Ever since I laid my eyes on you I knew I had to have you as my girl. Something just immediately drew me to you. Everything I said to him was true. He just wanted to make you think otherwise to keep you from staying with me. Ill prove to you that I'm in it for you. Ill prove that his words were just a bunch of bullshit. Your little sister is the sweetest little thing I've ever met. I loved her the second I walked through that door. She reminded me of my little sister. Id do anything to keep the both of you happy. Please, believe me. I swear to God I love you Anna." His eyes started to water. I knew he was telling me the truth. He's never cried in front of me about anything.
"I love you too, Justin." I kissed him and hid my head in his neck. He kissed the top of my head and held me tight. What will happen to us.. They can't really separate us can they? They don't realize how much he means to me.. I'd be lost without him.. He made me realize that I shouldn't have to hide behind a thick wall away from the world. I found myself and who I am from being with him. They can just take that away from me... I hugged him tighter as the thoughts started to eat me alive.
Please don't leave me...
So things really just got intense. I will post maybe one or two more tonight so stay tuned. What do you think is going to happen? Is Justin going to go to jail for the charges being held against him? Is he going to be forced by law to stop seeing Anna until her eighteenth birthday? Only reading more will help you to solve these lingering questions. Until then lots of love!! xoxo.
