Taking you Home

"Nikki…" Cameron said as Nikki jumped up and quickly walked to the door, "Nikki you can't just leave like this!"

"Cameron…" Nikki began as she slipped into her flip flops, "Listen, Cam…"

"Nikki, look, this has gone far enough, you gotta tell…you have to tell someone..,"

Tears welled up in the corner of her eyes as she glanced at her boyfriend, "I told you," She whispered.

Cameron sighed as he said softly, but firmly, "Nik, you got raped! And now you're pregnant for god's sake, how can you not tell?"

Nikki shook her head and glanced around the foyer, she spoke calmly, "You don't understand…"

"I'm trying! Ok, I'm trying to understand…you just have to let me in Nik, you're hurt, I get that, and scared. But I don't want to ever see you get hurt, Nikki. Nik, please…" He was talking desperately now, trying to make her realize…

"Cam, you promised, " She said softly and a small tear fell down her cheek.

Cameron's eyes immediately softened as he reached out and slowly used his thumb to wipe the tear away. Nikki's breath caught as Cameron pulled her against him and protectively wrapped his hands around her. "You're gonna be ok, Nik," He said as he pressed his lips to her blonde hair.

After a moment Nikki pulled away and smiled gently up at Cameron, "Thanks Cam…for everything,"

Cameron nodded, as his own eyes had tears brimming over them, "I'm going to walk you home, ok?"

Nikki shook her head, "Nah, you don't have to,"

"Nik, you have got to be kidding me, I'm not letting you walk home by yourself," He said as he already slipped on his shoes and opened the door.

The air was cool outside, and a breeze instantly hit their faces as they stepped outside. The sun was just going down, and the beach was thinning out of people.

"Cam, you don't have to do this,"

Cameron simply shook his head and laced his fingers through hers. "Nikki…" He began, and immediately sensing where this was headed Nikki stopped him.

"Cam, please, don't do this right now,"

He glanced down at her, and gently caressed his thumb over her hand, "Nikki, I just want you to know I'm here for you, ok?"

Nikki smiled softly, "Yeah I know,"

"I just…I just wish you would…I…you're hurting yourself Nik, Simon is hurting you, but you're hurting yourself even more, "

Anger burned in Nikki's pit as she pulled away from Cameron, "Don't you think I want to tell Cameron?" Nikki spat.

"Nik…" Cameron said grabbing hold of her hand, but Nikki pulled away.

"Don't you think I want this to be over, don't you think I never wanted this to happen, don't you think I KNOW I'm not ok? I do Cameron, I do know. I'm not ok, I know that. But I can't tell…I can't tell…and you can't either," Nikki was rambling now, as she continued to pulled away from Cameron, "Because he said he would hurt me…and my family. And I can't tell, nothing can happen to any of you. I just can't tell ok?" Nikki finished softly as Cameron pulled her into a hug.

"Nikki, the baby…what are you going to do?"

Nikki took a deep breath as she spoke into Cameron's shoulder, "I don't even know if I'm pregnant yet so…" Nikki had to have a plan. She had to know what she was going to do next, "So…I guess I can take a test or something…and then I don't know," She said truthfully.

Cameron nodded as they stopped in front of Nikki's house, "You're gonna be ok, Nik," He said repeating the same words into her hair.

Nikki nodded and reached up to gently kiss Cameron on the lips, "You're great Cam, I don't know what I would do with you, I…I just I want to thank you for being there,"

Cameron smiled, "You know I always will be," He gently kissed her back, and Nikki smiled.

"I'll see you tomorrow ok?"

Nikki nodded and smiled, "Yeah tomorrow,"

Nikki opened the door to her house to see her whole family ready to head out, "Hi guys," She said quietly to the group.

Ava smiled as she stood up to great her niece, "Hi honey, feel better?" She asked as she felt Nikki's forehead.

Nikki nodded, "Yeah much,"

Ava nodded, "It must have been a one time thing, nothing serious," She said as she grabbed her purse. "Ok people let's head out."

Nikki stepped back as people rushed passed her to grab various jackets and bags and shoes. She smiled, as she heard the usual complaints about were a certain sock was…or if anyone had seen where the other shoe was.

Nikki noticed someone was missing, "Um Aunt Ava? Where's Simon?"

Maybe he wasn't going to be there.

"Oh, he's going to meet us there, Sweetie," Ava said as she grabbed her keys and walked out the door.

Nikki swallowed as she followed her aunt out, she didn't know if she could sit through a whole dinner with Simon's sick ass in front of her.

Nikki hurried up and caught up wither brother, who was walking with his hands jammed in his pockets and his iPod turned up to the limit. She tugged at his jacket to get his attention.

Bradin slipped his headphones out of his ear and smiled down at her, "Hey Nik, what's been happening?"

Nikki smiled and shook her head, "Nothing much, what about you? How's it going with Errrriiiikkkaa?" Nikki said smirking at her brother.

Bradin rolled his eyes and glared at her playfully, "Nothing that should concern you at fourteen,"

Nikki raised her eyebrows at him, "First of all… didn't need to know that, and second of all…eew."

Bradin laughed as he slung an arm over her shoulder, "So I haven't seen much of you around lately,"

Nikki nodded and leaned into her brother's frame, "Yeah well…been busy with Cameron and stuff,"

"You guys aren't doing anything…um…you know, that you aren't supposed to…you know..not that I was implying anything…I mean," Bradin looked uncomfortable as he put his hands back in his pockets.

Nikki smiled softly, "It's ok Bradin, nothing's happening,"

Bradin looked relatively relieved as he put his headphones back on, and Nikki slowed her pace down a little.

Nothing's happening.

A lot was happening.

A couple of minutes later the latter reached the beachside restaurant and Nikki walked behind the others into the cool air conditioned air.

Ava smiled as she said, "Simon's already got us a table," She said pointing to a waving Simon at a table lining the beach.

Nikki walked closer to her aunt as her pulse quickened. "Hey guys," Simon said smiling at everyone.

"Hey honey," he said to Ava as she bent down to kiss him.

Johnny looked disgusted as he took a seat next to Jay. Derrick rushed to sit on the other side of Ava, and Bradin sat in front of him, leaving one seat open for Nikki.

Directly in front of Simon.

Nikki sighed as she sat down, Simon glanced at her winked.

"So how is everyone?" Simon asked as everyone mumbled 'fine'

"I just want to take this time to tell all of you how much I appreciate you accepting me into you r family. You guys are all wonderful people and I hope we can all get to know each other well over the next few years," Simon said as he draped an arm around Ava

Nikki felt sick suddenly.

She couldn't do it. She couldn't sit here. Not with him right there. "Aunt Ava…I um…I don't feel so well, do you think maybe I can go home?"

Ava looked at her with concern, "Nik? I thought you said you were fine,"

"I…I thought I was…but um…please Aunt Ava…I really don't feel that good,"

Ava opened her mouth to speak and glanced at Susannah who shrugged, "Well I guess you could…honey are you sure you can't sit through dinner?"

Nikki shook her head hard, her ehad really was starting to hurt, "I don't think so," She said.

Simon spoke up, "Honey, it's alright I can take her home," He said turning to Ava.

Ava nodded glancing at Nikki, "Well if you really don't feel well…I guess Simon could take you home,"

Nikki shook her head, "I can walk Aunt Ava,"

Tears sprang to her eyes as she glanced at Simon glaring at her.

"Honey if you don't feel good, I'd rather have someone take you home,"

Nikki shook her head harder, "But Bradin can do it though, or Jay, or Johnny."

Ava looked at her curiously and opened her mouth, but Simon was the one to speak, "Really it's not bother, sweetie. And plus I have a car so you don't have to walk all that way in this heat,"

Ava nodded at her as Nikki stood up helplessly. She glanced back one more time at her family as she followed Simon to his car.

"What do you think you're doing?" Nikki hissed at Simon as he opened the door for her.

"Get in the car Nikki,"

"No!" Nikki yelled.

"I said get in the car, Nikki," Simon said as he yanked her into the car.

"Where are you taking me?" She screamed as the car sped out of the parking lot.

"I'm taking you home, Nik. I'm just taking you home,"
