Trouble: Doubled

Just as Liz thought everything was back to normal, things take a twist and slowly start falling down hill again. Even though Hayes is not allowed to be around her, he still somehow manages to screw with her head and mess with all of her relationships.... Or is Liz letting her past come back to haunt her?


13. Twisted

    Nash finally gave in and drove me to his house and sure enough Jack's car was parked in Nash's driveway. I get out of the car and quickly run to the porch but the door is locked so I turn to Nash who is leaning against his car. “Come open it up.”
    He crossed his arms and sighed.
    “Liz, I promised him I wouldn't tell you about it. He'll kill me if I let you in.”
    “I'll kill you if you don't, now, come on..”
    He sighed again but came and opened the door. It was really nice inside, the staircase was right in front of the door and it was narrow but really tall and the room smelled just like Nash's car did: cinnamon. It was pretty dark through the house, there was a tint in the kitchen above the sink and the hall light above the stairs was on. “Do you know where they are?” I turn.
    He shuts the door and puts his keys on the small table next to the front door. “No.” he shakes his head. “We can check his room.”
    I follow him up the stairs and when we get to the top, a little girl comes out of the room on the right. “Nash?” she mumbled, rubbing her eyes. Her short blond hair was messy and her pink nightgown dress hung, dragging on the ground as she walked over to him.
    “Hey.” his voice was soft, he bent down to her. “Why don't you go back to sleep?”
    “I'm thirsty.” she mumbled again.
    “Okay.” he stood up and looked at me. “That door is Hayes' room” he points to the white door at the end of the hall. “I'll be right back.” he picks the little girl up and walked down the stairs.
    I rushed to the door and put my ear against it. I can hear them talking, they are arguing but not screaming, which I guess is a good sign.
    “Because she's my girlfriend.” Jack said.
    “I don't care about her.” Hayes said.
    “Then how come every time I look at her, you're always around her? Leave her alone.”
    “Yeah because I'm going to let you tell me what to do, she's the one following me.”
    I am not. I wanted to go in but not yet, I wanted to hear more of what they were saying about me. I press my head a little harder against the door and immediately wish I didn't do it because the door opened and they both turned to me.
    “Liz?!” Jack said.
    “What are you doing in my house?” Hayes said at the same time Jack spoke.
    “I.. uh..” I didn't know what to say. 'Yeah, Nash told me what Jack was doing here so in wanted to come and eavesdrop and make sure Hayes doesn't kill my boyfriend' There is no way I could tell either of them the truth.
    “Why are here?” Hayes repeated.
    I look at Jack, who is standing there waiting for an answer too. “Nash told you, didn't he?”
    At first, I didn't want to get him in trouble so I shake my head. “I was...” I couldn't think of a lie. I can't lie to Jack, especially after lying to him about not feeling anything about Hayes for so long, I don't want him to not trust me anymore than he already does. “Nash told me you were coming over here and I wanted to stop you because I didn't want him to hurt you like he hurt Danny.”
    He turned to Hayes and took a small step back. “You killed Daniel?”
    “What? No! The bitch is talking crazy! Why would I do something like that? Man, tell your psycho girlfriend to leave.”
    “Don't call me psycho.”
    “She's not psycho. She was just worried about me.” he turned to me. “Which she had no business doing.” he said just as Nash came up with the little girl.
    He told the little girl to go back to bed and just as she shut the door, he came over to us.
    “I'm gonna kill you!” Jack started walking over to Nash but I stand in front of him.
    “Stop, I made him tell me. He wasn't going to but what were you thinking? That I was just going to be okay with you not showing up and not think anything of it when you send Nash in your place? You hate him.”
    “Right here.” Nash mumbled.
    “Why are you here, baby?” I continued, forcing Jack to look at me.
    “I'm tired of this dude and his girlfriend messing with you. I wanted to put an end to it.”
    “Why? Just ignore him, I am. I don't care.”
    “He scares you, I don't like that.”
    “Are you jealous of him? Is that why?”
    He shrugged. “Of course I'm jealous of him, you're still in love with him.”
    Before I can speak, Jack's face turned white, his eyes got wide and he groaned. “What's wrong?” I ask. He doesn't answer.
    I look back at Nash, he took a step back into the wall and slid down to the ground with his hands over his mouth. I look back at Hayes, he has blood on his hands and he looks pissed. I look back down at Jack just as we falls to his knees.
