AN- Sorry It has been taking me forever to update! I am just SUPER BUSY! With six soccer practices a week, 1-3 soccer games a week depending on the schedule, acting class, play rehearsal, and on top of that, lots of algebra homework! But here I am, so I'll get on with the story.
Disclaimer: My bathroom is purple! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA…and I still own nothing
Chapter 4: The Visit
After learning Tawni's secret, I realized that if there is nothing I can do to help my friends at the moment, until I figure that out, I'm enjoying my time with them.
Which is why I walked thirty seven blocks to Chad's mansion in the pouring rain.
It's not like I care if I get sick or anything anymore.
Which is, again, why I walked thirty seven blocks in this shit.
Not to mention that all I was wearing was a dark red strapless mini dress and….yeah….that was it.
I was carrying my heels so they didn't count.
I was about to knock on Chad's door when I realized something.
I'm an idiot!
You know why?
If Chad's been avoiding me since the incident, why would he want to see me now?
I just decided to knock on the door anyway.
To my surprise, it was Chad's father who opened it, but he didn't know I knew who he was, if that makes any sense.
In the end I realized it was best to play dumb.
"Um…hi! Is Chad here?"
I asked nervously.
"No. Who are you?"
He demanded in a rough voice. I hadn't noticed before, but his hands were covered in blood. And if I looked behind him, I could see that it was trailing up the steps. Oh God! Is Chad Okay?
"I'm just a friend of Chad's sir."
I said slowly backing away from the door. I glanced towards the garage. It was open. And Chad's car wasn't in it. I got scared then. If this man beat his wife to death, and he wants to kill Chad, would he do something to me?
"Friend of Chad's, eh? Since he ain't here for me to teach, why don't I give YOU a lesson today?"
He was smirking triumphantly. I started to back away even more than I had before.
"No thank you! I was just checking in on Chad."
And with that, I started to run away. I thought I was going to get away when suddenly I was up on the man's back.
"Let me down! Help! Help! Get off of me!"
I started screaming at the top of my lungs and pounding on his back, but he was too strong.
"You can't get away from me, bitch. I think this lesson would best be taught upstairs."
He said smirking as he dragged me up. I still screeched and fought, but it was no use. He threw me down on the bloody bed and started trying to unzip the back of my dress. I screamed and kicked and cried, but again, it was no use. Soon enough, I was down to my skimpy black, lacy, underwear. For a minute, he moved a few feet away from me, undressing himself, so I used it as an opportunity to get away. I fled down the stairs shaking and crying, knowing what might happen to me if I didn't get away. I heard a car pull into the driveway. I looked out the window. It was Chad. I ran out hoping he could help me. His dad was gaining on me now. Only about two feet behind me, and now had a belt in his hand.
"Chad! H-Help me!"
I cried trying to get away from his father. I held on to the door as much as I could while Chad's dad tried to pull me back in.
"Stop trying to get away you slut!"
He yelled at me, making me cry harder. I kicked him where the sun don't shine and made my escape. When Chad looked at me with his jaw dropped, I realized that I was still only in my underwear. And my head was gushing blood.
He asked with concern.
"I-I came to visit you and h-he…."
I burst out into tears, thinking about it. And he was still probably inside. Waiting.
"Oh, look at what we have here. The slut's being saved by her little Chaddy. Isn't that nice?"
Chad and I looked at him in horror as he got closer and closer to me. Chad pulled me up to his chest.
"You won't be hurting her. Or anyone. You'll have to go through me."
Chad said in a low growl. I was worried he'd say something like that. That was when he took a step in front of me, and his father pulled out a gun. It all seemed to happen in slow motion. As he got ready to pull the trigger, I jumped in front of Chad.
He bellowed angrily.
"No. I won't let you kill Chad."
I said in fear, not knowing whether I would be shot at or not.
"Fine. We're going to finish this later, Chad."
He said evilly, as if he knew something that I didn't as he retreated back to the house.
"Chad, you can't go back!"
I said, trying to hold back even more tears. He turned me to face him.
"I have to, Sonshine."
He said sadly.
"But, why? You just can't! What if he hurts you?"
I said, now letting my tears flow freely.
"Sonshine, If I don't, he can hurt you."
He said, his voice full of worry.
"Chad, I could live with that, but if he did something to you-"
I trailed of, thinking of what I'd probably do if he was killed. I knew the answer. I'd be dead, too.
He whispered, not knowing how to respond. It was silent. I knew I had to tell him.
"You want to know why I can't let anything happen to you? Chad, I know you probably don't return the feeling, but I-I love you…."
I cried even harder, thinking my assumption was right. He cupped my face in his hands and kissed me. His soft lips were crashing against my own. He moved his hands down to my waist and pulled me even closer. I laid my hands around his neck and kissed back. Finally, we broke apart and he looked into my eyes. Once again, I was hypnotized. I gazed and saw little flecks of gold and green in the ocean of blue that I hadn't seen before. He leaned closer to me. We were just about to kiss again.
"I love you too, Sonshine."
He whispered. He was so close, that when he said it, I could feel his lips moving. He took my hand and led me to his car.
"We're going to get you home. Okay Sonshine?"
I just nodded. Soon enough, we were at my apartment.
"I'll walk you up."
Again, I just nodded. We walked into the lobby, ignoring the stares coming from all the other people. We rode up the elevator and in about a minute, we were on my floor. We walked in silence. Then, we were standing at my front door. I turned to face him.
"Chad, thanks. If you hadn't come back when you did, I don't know what I would have done."
I said, so glad that I had seen him.
"No problem. I'm glad I could help."
He said with a genuine smile. I leaned in to kiss him, but he didn't move.
"Sonny, I'll see you at the studio."
He did his signature wink and with that, he left. My brain was bombarded with millions of questions.
Why did he retreat?
Does He REALLY love me?
What will happen to him when he gets home?
That last one haunted me the most.
Here I sat, now safe in my apartment, and he had to face something horrible from his father.
What do I do here?
I did all I knew how to.
And prayed that I'd see him alive and well the next day.
I knew I could see his number of days which was now 368, but what if that changes?
I guess I'll find out.
I fell into a dreamless sleep, not caring that I'd have more scratches the next day.
All I cared about was Chad.
