6. Chapter Six

If ya'll could, listen to the song Hero by Enrique Iglesias. Best song in the world.

Luke's POV

The emotion I felt the last two weeks have been unbearable. The sleepless nights, the constant pain in my chest, the migraines. Chloe's been telling me for the past week to get over myself and to get out of my bed but honestly, I can't. If she can't see what Violet is doing to me and what she wanted me to feel, then how will she ever understand what I'm going through?

"Luke, I miss you," Chloe whisperer making her way out from the bathroom. The bathroom where so many things happened between Violet and I. The bathroom where I had my first real kiss. Where I told Violet I loved her when we were sixteen. The bathroom where she overdosed. Twice. The bathroom where Ryan was almost born in. The bathroom where Violet and I had our first fight.

"I'm sorry," I said, bringing my hands behind my head. Chloe sighed and made her way back to my bed.

"I don't like seeing you this way, Luke. You're all broken and... hurting,"

"It's not me, Chlo. It's Violet's emotions,"

"So she's the one keeping you up at night?"

"Chloe, you know this. Whatever happens to her, happens to me. She gets hurt, I get hurt. She's tired, I'm tired,"

"It's like you're linked together. And you know what, I'm tired of it. I'm tired of you being up every single night since you had a fight with her. And I'm tired of you being in pain because of her,"

"It's not her fault, you know this already. I've been telling you this since we started dating."

"Yeah, but she's the one who's doing this to you. Come on, Luke, she opened herself back up to you because she wanted you to feel what she felt. And I'm done with it. She put you through so much and I've just about had it with this and with her." I shook my head and stood up, only to sit back down.

"There's aspirin on your bedside table. I'm sorry, Luke, but I have to put a stop to this."

"You'll only make her worse, Chlo. You won't fix anything,"

"Watch me. I'm sorry, but I won't sit here and watch you hurt and watch you turn into nothing because of what she's doing. I'm not going to sit here and watch the man I'm in love with waste his life away in his room,"

"You won't fix it!"

"Watch me, Luke,"

Violet's POV

"What do you want?" I asked setting the bottle of formula down on the counter.

"You need to fix this," Chloe said.

"Fix what exactly? The fact that I'm ignoring Luke or the fact that he's feeling every single tick, pain, spasm, thought, Dream, emotion in my body right now?"

"Both. Violet, I know you. And I-"

"Stop right there. You know me? I find that hard to believe considering you know absolutely nothing about me. The only thing you know is my name, birthdate and the fact that I'm a single mother. You know nothing about me."

"I used to know you, at least," she whispered.

"Used to? What the hell does that mean?"

"Luke and I both see it. You've changed. Ever since the whole council visit, you've been... not you."

"Excuse me for being protective of myself and my son, who by the way, was threatened just the other day."

"What do you mean?" She asked.

"The council came back and threatened the life of Ryan, Chloe. They threatened me the first time and now they threatened Ryan. So yeah, I've changed for my child. Not for anybody else."

"Violet!" I took a deep breath and continued to change Ryan out of his dirty diaper.

"Violet, open the door!" I rolled my eyes and picked Ryan up off the changing table.

"Luke, what the hell!" I yelled as the door busted down to the carpeted floor.

"Why the hell didn't you tell me the council came back?"

"It's none of your business, Luke,"

"Yes, it is, actually. We're inseparable, remember? You go far away, we both die. You die, I die."

"It was a little threat that doesn't concern you at all. So you can leave and I want money to pay for that door,"

"No, I'm not leaving. For two damn weeks I've done nothing but drink and sit in bed and I'm done. I'm tired of it. I'm tired of letting your emotions control me."

"You were the one who told me to open myself back up to you. And I did,"

"No, you did it because you wanted me to feel what you were going through. And you know what? I see it now. I get it. You're in pain. You hurt. I see it. And I'm sorry. I'm sorry for making you feel the way you did. I'm sorry for leading you on. I'm sorry for making you hurt so much in the past that you did the things you did. I never intended to hurt you. Violet, I can either be your enemy or I can be the best thing that's happened to you. I can be whatever the hell you want me to be. I'll go away forever, if that's what you want. I'll give myself so much pain. I'll disintegrate into nothing. I'll turn myself into the council."

"Luke, I'm tired of being your rebound. And I won't do it anymore. You know how I feel about you and you use that to your advantage,"

"I'm so sorry, Violet. It's hard for me to see you this way. I've always known you as this strong, independent person who I admire,"

"I'm tired of being told I'm strong. Because you know what? I'm not strong. I never was and I never am. It's the front I put up. Deep down, Luke, I'm the little girl who broke her leg when I was running away from Jack and his friends. I'm still the little girl who had to have her closet checked for monsters every night. I'm not strong and I hate being told I am."

"Okay, I won't call you strong anymore. I'll call you... a bunny. Soft, squishy and adorable,"

"You're doing it again! You're leading me on!"

"Okay, I'm sorry. But, Vi, I meant every single word I said before. I'll do anything to get you back."

"You're my best friend, Luke and you're Ryan's god father and I don't want us to have beef,"

"Beef? You know, I hear everyone using that and I never understand it," he smiled, sitting on the floor in the nursery.

"I hear Jenna use it a lot when she comes home from school,"

"She's nine."

"And we live in the twenty first century. Five year olds have smart phones,"

"I wish I had a smart phone when I was five,"

"Luke, you just got a Twitter."

"And you just got a Facebook,"

"You just got rid of your MySpace account. Who even uses that?"

"Hey, that was the thing back when we were little," I smiled and let out a little laugh.

"There she is, there's my Violet. Look, I was an asshole to you and you're right. You're my rebound girl and I'm so sorry I put you through that. Chloe knows you're my whole world, she knows what happens if we aren't near each other and she knows why I can't move without you. And whatever she said to you before, I'm sorry," I nodded.

"And Violet, next time the council comes around and threatens you and Ryan, let me know. Whether you, Chloe or anyone else like it or not, we're bound together and we're family and you know how I am with family." Yes, because family sleeps with other family members. And family leads another to thinking they're leading them on.

"Violet, I'm trying to be nice,"

"Sorry, forgot,"

"So, please, forgive me." He said, pulling me close to him. I closed my eyes and let my thoughts take over. Getting used. Falling back in love. Being hurt again. Getting my heart shattered. Everything has happened with Luke and I don't think I'm ready to go through that again,"

"You won't go through it, Violet. Please, I don't know if you've noticed but I'm nothing without you. And yeah, I love you. Like a sister. I'll be a father figure to Ryan if that's what you want, I'll pretend to be his father if that's what you want. Vi, I'll pick you up when you're down. I'll save you. I'll hold you. I don't care what it is, just... forgive me."
