Demi's mum runs off unexpectedly to be with her boyfriend and leaves Demi and her two brothers alone in a small run down flat in the suburbs of downtown Los Angeles and doesn't leave any contact or information. So Demi and her brothers are left with no food and no money and left to fend for themselves that is until Justin comes along.

How will Demi cope? Will Justin be her saviour? Will her mother ever come back?


7. The Truth

I woke up in total darkness and winced at the pain searing through my wrist and that's was when I remembered what I had done, I got up and turned the light on to find Justin sat on the chair at the other side of the room, he looked heart-broken. I walked over to him and stroked his hair.

''I'm really sorry, I don't know what came over me just all this pressure.. it just got to me I'm so sorry baby'' I pleaded to him as a tear ran down my face.

"Why the fuck did you do that Demi? You could of really hurt yourself, and then who would have looked after your brothers and when you mum comes back you wouldn't be here" he said as he pulled me onto his lap.

"I don't know wait.. how do you know about my mum?!" I asked him, suspicion and paranoia took over me as my mind raced with thoughts, terrible thoughts like the fact that he may be involved with my mum's disappearance and that she didn't actually disappear, she was kidnapped as my mind raced with these horrible thoughts he started to speak.

"Oh. Jackson told me everything, you know you could of told me yourself Demi I could of helped you!" he said as he stroked the bandages and started to slowly unravel it to look at the swollen cuts underneath.

"I didn't tell you cause I don't need your help, I don't even know you that well and you think you can come in here make a move on me and then not contact me in days and turn up now like some hero!" he made me so angry trying to worm his way into my life, I didn't even know him, but no matter how much I tried I couldn't stay mad at him for long he was only trying to help me and the state I was in I definitely needed it.

He looked stung by my words and winced when I started to stroke his hair again. We sat on the sofa in silence for a while staring at nothing.

"Where are Adam and Jackson?" I asked looking around the room.

''They're in bed, I sent them up about and hour ago, they don't know what happened to you I just told them that you were tired so you fell asleep'' he didn't sound annoyed anymore but he still sounded upset.

"Did Jackson tell you what he did?" I asked trying to break the awkwardness.

"Yeah.. he did, he showed me what he did and he said it still hurts but I told him it would be fine as long as he never did it again, he started to cry so I asked him what was up and that's when he told me everything" he explained.

I heard footsteps behind me and as I turned around Jackson appeared in the light.

"I didn't mean to tell Justin Demi but I didn't know what else to do!" he said with tears streaming down his face.

"It's ok Jackson don't be upset, I'm not mad, I'm more upset with myself for not telling him. You did the right thing baby'' I told him as I got up and gave him a big hug.

I brought him over to where Justin was sat and we sat together for a while until Justin got up and went into the kitchen, I left Jackson watching cartoon's and went after him. As I entered the room he turned around and looked at me with tears in his eyes, he reached into his back pocket and pulled out his wallet and gave me $200 and then left.

I stood in the kitchen and stared after him. What the hell had just happened?
