33. Able To Breathe Again
Nash and Cameron had to keep him held down until the police showed up to arrest him. They didn't even ask about Hayes' car, and they didn't want to know why Hayes had a gash in his arm a foot long, they just wanted to know why Hayes was trying to kill me. Hayes' mom showed up just as the police put Hayes in the back seat.
“My baby. Get him out of there, why is he back there?” she was crying and Nash was trying to pull her away from the cop that was guarding the door but she kept pushing her off.
I guess I did feel kinda bad for what his mom has to go through, what his whole family has to go through but I didn't feel bad for Hayes. Not one once in felt even the smallest bit of guilt for smashing his car or putting him in jail. I felt better knowing he was going to leave me alone, for at least a little while.
“You did this...” his mom came over to me. Tears and make up running down her face, her voice breaking. “My baby is...” she just shook her head and walked back to her car. Nash gave me a look, it was a mixture of sorrowfulness, hatred, apologetic and sympathy all together then he followed his mom.
“Are you... I mean, are you okay?” Cameron asked. Ellie was still on the phone with mom.
I shrug. “I will be, I guess. I ruined their family.”
Cameron shook his head. “Don't do that to yourself. You? You're not to blame for this; he is. I mean, I love the kid, he's like a little brother to me but after seeing that... I don't know him anymore. I've never seen him like that before. You were brought to this. I'm sorry.”
I bite the inside of my cheek and watch the cop car pull away... with Hayes inside. I let out a quiet sigh of relief and close my eyes. Happy I was going to be able to go to school tomorrow and not worry about Hayes being there.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Hey guys!! Sorry this last chapter is kinda short but I thought it would be a perfect way to end it. Yes, if you haven't yet read my update, I'm ending 'Trouble' but NOT FOR GOOD! I am currently working on the second one, not exactly sure what I'm going to call it yet. We'll get there lol If you have any suggestions, leave a comment below :)
Thanks for all the support you guys gave me while writing this, I know it wasn't easy at some points. I took a break for a while because of a little 'writers block' but I got back on track and it made me really happy :)
Be on the lookout for the second one as well as go check out my other 2 stories I have. One is about a girl living a no-money, no-rules type of world.
