I had someone else beta the story from ch1. By yaoigirl20 who did ch 2 of this love. Hope you like it

A/N
Hope you guys like my story. I believe that when it comes to loving someone, Tommy is clueless, but Tommy is intelligent with other things. He never had anyone to love him so I think he wouldn't be to sure about himself but other stuff he is smart at. Like reading people and other stuff.

The Texas Chainsaw Halloween Massacre.

Ch2

When I woke up, Tommy was still in the bed with me. I sat up and looked around the room. The cream walls were boring to look at, and there were no windows in the room. I put my hand to my head, still scared. When will Hoyt tell Tommy to kill me? I began to cry. I felt a hand on my shoulder and wiped the tears from my eyes before I turned to look at Tommy. Tommy hesitantly wiped away the few tears that had managed to escape.

"Tommy."

He looked at me and nodded.

"What's going to happen to me now?"

He looked down.

"Are you going to kill me?"

He looked up at me and shook his head 'no'.

"What if Hoyt tells you to? You were gonna last night. What if…"

He put his hand on my mouth and violently shakes his head 'no'. He took his hand away when I stared deep into his eyes.

"You have to promise me you will not kill me. You have to swear to me you will not."

He nodded his head 'yes' and put his hand on his heart. Then he grabbed my hand and placed it there.

"I have to tell you something, Tommy." He looked at me waiting but before I could tell him there was a knock at the door. "Come in.' the door opened and Luda walked in.

"It's time for lunch," she said with a smile.

I pulled my hand from his chest when I realized she'd already seen it there, and smiled. She then walked out of the room. The thought came to me, what if lunch has meat in it?

Tommy got off the bed and held his hand out to me.

I got off the bed and took his hand in mine and he led me to the kitchen. He opened the door and I saw Luda in the kitchen cutting up something with a butcher knife and I about screamed. I turned around and put my head in Tommy's brown shirt; he'd taken off his apron last night when he'd put up the chainsaw. I got a handful of his shirt in my hands like a child would do when they were scared of something.

He put his arms around me trying to comfort me. I didn't know why I felt a pull to Tommy. He was going to kill me last night with that chainsaw. Maybe I should just let him kill me it would save my brother the trouble; my brother kills his family with a butcher knife. He is pure evil.

Luda walked out of the kitchen and saw how scared I was in Tommy's arms. She must have thought I was scared of Tommy, so she gave Tommy a look and he let me go, then he went to his basement. I just watched him leave me. "It's time for his chores." I turned and looked at the old woman. "Come on, your food is getting cold."

I followed her to the dining room and sat down at the table, looking around the room, still frightened.

"Don't worry, child, you are safe here. Yesterday was a misunderstanding from Hoyt. I give you my word that Tommy will not kill you. Your bowl is in the kitchen. I'll be right back." She came back quickly with the food and sat it in front of me. I looked at it, then back around the room. "Don't worry, Dear-y. Hoyt will be gone all day today and won't be back in until supper time. I have to leave soon to go work at the store. Monty will be at the TV all day and Tommy will be around, doing his chores. Do you want to go to the store or stay here?"

I looked back up at her. "I want to stay here."

"Ok," she said getting up from the chair next to me.

I picked up the spoon and looked at the meat; it made me sick just looking at it. She walked out the room and I heard a car start, than drive away. I put the spoon down and got up out of my chair, walking to the basement door, which was closed. I needed to be around Tommy, he was the only one that stood a chance against Michael. I tried to open the door with all of my strength, but it wouldn't move. I went to knock on the door but it flew open and Tommy looked down at me. He had his bloody apron on again. I just stared at him with wide eyes, both scared and mesmerize by him. Oh no. I'm beginning to get a crush on him. This is not a good sign at all. I have to fight this. I finally snapped out of it. "I wanted to know if you were hungry, I'm not." I said, looking at the ugly wooden floor. I saw a nod out of the corner of my eye. "It's on the dining room table." He nodded and walked past me to the dining room.

I walked up stairs to the bathroom so I could wash up. I shut the door and locked it. I went to the sink and turned on the water. I looked in the mirror while I waited for the water to heat up. I didn't realize I was breathing so hard. I scooped up some of the water and splashed it onto my face. I looked back at the mirror. My hair still had mud in it. I walked to the tub, careful not to trip again. I sat at the edge of the tub and washed my hair. When I was done I wrung out my hair, attempting to dry my hair without a towel. I got up carefully and walked out the door to my room where I lay back down and closed my eyes.

{Tommy's POV}

Tommy was sitting at the table; he just got done with the bowl of food. He knew that Beth was just using him that first night, but now she just looked at him like she felt something more for him. Other than when they held hands yesterday, it only lasted a second and he knew that he scared her but that look, he couldn't get it out of his head. She looked mesmerize by him and scared all at the same time. Tommy shook his head and went to get his chores done. Just as Tommy got to the basement door he heard her screaming. He ran up the stairs to her room. He opened the door and saw her tossing and turning on the bed. The sight scared him. What kind of nightmare is she having? He sat on the bed and sat her up. He held her head to his chest and rocked her back and forth.

{Beth's POV - The Dream.}

I was running down the dark street from him. I kept tripping over my feet, trying to get away from the masked man that was chasing me with a butcher knife. I ran to a random house I beat on the door. A guy let me in and I shut the door and locked it. I had tears in my eyes. "Do you have a back door?"

"Yeah it's though the kitchen." The old guy pointed to the back.

I went to go when Michael came bursting through the door and killed the old guy. I ran to the back door. I opened it and I almost made it out when he grabbed my hair and pulled me back into the house. He held me a little off the ground to look at him into the eyes and suddenly stabs me in the stomach with the knife. I stopped my screams and he throws me to the floor. I hit the floor hard but fought the scream and didn't breathe fast. Instead, I took short and little breathes, trying to pull off that I was dead. I saw him walk out the door and just waited to see if he would come back. The pain was so sever I had trouble keeping quite.

{Beth's pov}

I woke up and realized I was in Tommy's arms, he was rocking me. He noticed I was awake, but I just grabbed him and pulled him closer to me, closing my eyes. About ten minutes went by before I spoke to him. "I am ok now, thank you," I said with a forced smile and pulled away from him. He let me go and just looked at me. I can't do this anymore; I can't use him like this. I felt so bad. "I don't want you to get in trouble; you should finish your chores." He nodded to me then got up and walked out the door, shutting it behind him. I heard his boots going down the stairs. What am I going to do? I lay back down and fell back to sleep. This time I dreamed of Tommy. This crush is killing me I wanted more than just to be with Tommy.

{A month later}

The crush had gotten stronger. Whenever I saw Tommy, I would hold my breath and my heart would race, my knees would almost give out and my stomach had butterflies. When I didn't see him my knees would move fast. I was so jumpy.

Mama said I was part of the family, so I was a little okay. I was still scared when we all sat for dinner. I was just waiting for Hoyt to do something to me or have Tommy kill me. I stopped cutting myself, the scars a reminder.
Yesterday, 6:18pm

My chores are to help Mama in the kitchen and at the store. I call her Mama now, because she says she always wanted a daughter. I am at the store now. I am cleaning tables when Mama asked me a question, cutting my thoughts. I was thinking of Tommy; he was on my brain a lot.

"You like Tommy don't you?" the question catches me off guard. I stopped cleaning the table and looked at her. "You know, he likes you." I looked down at the old ugly wooden floor before looking back up at her. She was smiling. "You're the first girl to look at him without a disgusted look or bad comment to him."

I looked back at the round table that I was cleaning as I spoke to her, "Yeah I like him a lot. But I don't know what to do about it?"

She came over to me and placed her hand on my shoulder. "You should tell him you like him."

I looked up at her with tears in my eyes. The reason I couldn't is because of my brother. He's going to find me one day and when he does these people, my new family, will die. I have stayed here too long, but I just can't leave them. They know that Michael, my brother, is looking for me; I told even them some of the stories about Michael. He killed his other sisters and now I am next. "Because it will turn to **; my brother will make it that way."

"None of us are made to live forever. If you love him then tell him. At least you will be happy. If your brother comes, we will think of something. Tommy would put up a good fight. You know, it's killing him to have you close to him but not close to him. He wants to be with you."

"I don't want anything bad to happen to him if I get with him." I sat down and looked at her.

"Isn't it a lot worst to not be with the one you love?"

"I never thought of it that way. I have to get back to the house now. I should go see him," I said getting out of the chair.

All Mama could do was smile. "I will drive you there, just let me lock up first," she said, still smiling brightly. I walked out of the store and went to the car, my heart racing. I saw Mama locking the door and walking to the green van that Hoyt took from some teens a week ago. I got in the car, shut my door and put on my seat belt. She got in the car and smiled at me. She put her seat belt on and drove to the house. We pulled up to the house and when she parked to car I jumped out. "I am going back to the store. See you later," she said still smiling.

"Oh, ok Mama, see you later." She pulled away and I ran inside to the basement door. I knocked on the door and waited. My heart was racing and it felt like it would beat out of my chest. My stomach had butterflies and my knees went weak all at once when the door flew open. Tommy looked down at me. He still had the leather over his nose and mouth. I smiled at him. I was going to lose it if I didn't do something fast. "I need to talk to you, Tommy." He nodded in understanding and I walked to the kitchen. He followed me and he shut the door. I turned to look at him. I walked to him. I reach up to touch his face and I found the string that was holding the two paces of the leather. He let me untie it and I took it off to look at his face. He still had a nose but it was starting to get worst. He had lips, which I was thankful for. I dropped the mask on the floor and put fingers to his long hair, I couldn't run my fingers though them because it was a mess. I got on my toes and touched his lips with mine. We moved our lips to my racing heart. This kiss felt like toxic to me, and I craved it more. I didn't want it to end. I waited a month for this kiss. He pulled me up so I could kiss him harder. He warped his arms around me. I pulled away slightly and looked at him.

{Tommy's POV – Over the Last Month}

Tommy's liked Beth since she first came to the house. Over the month she was there he began to get know her more and he fell for her, which was weird since he never felt this was before and he didn't understand it why he got butterflies and weak knees and his heart raced whenever he saw her. When he wasn't with her he was on edge.

He saw Mama in the kitchen one night when everyone was in bed. She looked up from her book when he came in. "Tommy, it's late. Is everything okay?" She had panic in her voice.

Tommy shock his head 'yes' and pointed to him then pointed to her which means either he needs to talk or just ask a question.

"What do you want to ask?"

Tommy put his arms out and lifted his shoulders, which meant 'why'. Then he pointed to himself, than went to grab something, which meant 'get'. He then patted his heart, and grabbed his stomach, then went to his knees, showing weakness. Then finally pointed to the ceiling, which was Beth's room.

Mama smiled and got out her chair and walked to Tommy. She put her hands on he's shoulders. "It means you love her. That's what happens to people who are. It's not a bad thing, Tommy." She smiled at him. From then on, Beth was always on his mind.

A month later, Tommy was in the basement doing his job when he heard knocking at the basement door. Tommy put his knife down on the table and walked up the stairs. He opened the door and saw Beth there.

"I need to talk to you, Tommy," she said.

The tone wasn't mean but he was worried about want it could be. He nodded and followed her to the kitchen. He shut the door when they entered the kitchen then turned to look at her. She walked to him and touched his face. She found the string that held his two pieces of leather he had covering his face. He didn't want to show her his true face but he let her untie it. He saw her drop the mask on the floor and he thought this is it. He got ready for a disgusted look or a comment but instead of that, she put her hands in his hair and got on her toes. His heart was racing and it about stopped when he felt her lips on his. He didn't know what to do at first but he just moved his lips with hers. He didn't want this to end. He wrapped his arms around her and pulled her up so they could be closer and kiss harder.

{Old Monty's POV – Over the Last Month}

At first, Monty could care one way or another about Beth, but she grew on him. They would watch TV when Beth and Luda got back from the store, or when Luda would add meat to the meals she would come in the living room. He would smile at her when she shook her legs before dinner. She would do this before almost every supper time.

"It's ok," he would tell her. Everyone living at the house knew Tommy and Beth loved each other. The way they looked at each other at dinner, it's not that hard to figure out. At dinner they would looked at each other every second they got and it made him smile. He hoped they would get together soon; she was the only girl that didn't pick on his nephew. He usually didn't care, but when it came to his family he did cared and she was part of this family.

He rolled his wheel chair to the kitchen to get a drink. When he opened the door and saw Tommy and Beth in the kitchen kissing he smiled. They finally did it? He closed the door and went back to the living room and made a phone call to the store.

{Hoyt's POV – Over the Last Month}

He didn't want that ** here in his house. He just wanted Tommy to kill her and let that be the last of it. The time she left the table, he thought she was about to run, so he gave Tommy the look to 'get his chainsaw now and don't dare disobey me', but all she did was get sick. He felt bad.

Hoyt loves his family and nothing comes between them on his watch or there will be hell to pay. Over time Beth grew on Hoyt too, but he didn't say it to anyone. Mama knew, only because she knew her son. Even he could tell that Beth loved Tommy. He would spend a little time with her and Monty before supper. He would smile to himself when Beth would get nerves before dinner. At the dinner table he watched her she only eat some of the meat but all of everything else.

{Luda's POV – Over the Last Month}
Yesterday, 6:27pm

She liked Beth from the beginning, especially when she saw that Tommy liked her. That's why she let her stay went them. She watched how Tommy and Beth acted at the dinner table and all she could do was smile. When Beth worked at the store she watched Beth as she cleaned the table and she would hum love songs to herself. She just wanted her boy, Tommy to be happy. What happen when he was a kid, what he lived through, it killed her that Tommy wouldn't find anyone. But then here came Beth, and Beth loves him.

Luda was in the store worrying how things were going with Beth and Tommy. "Did Beth tell him how she felt or did she back out?" when the phone rang, making her jump a little.

"Hello?" she answered.

"Hello, Luda."

"What's wrong Monty? Is everything ok?" she had panic in her voice.

"Everything's fine, Luda but I just went to the kitchen and saw Tommy and Beth."

"Are they fighting?"

"No," Monty said, she hear the smile in his voice.

"Then what is it?"

"They were kissing."

"Oh my, finally," she said with a smile.

{Beth's pov}

I was still in the kitchen with Tommy. I pulled away and looked into Tommy's blue eyes as I spoke. "I've fought it lately, but I love you, Tommy." His eyes sparked when I said that. He put his arms to his chest, to say 'I love you, too'. I smiled at that and moved back to his lips. I pulled away when I heard Hoyt outside, yelling at Tommy.

"THOMAS, get your ** out here NOW!"

He looked at me then gave me a peck on the lips. He picked up his mask and tied it on his face, then went out the kitchen door. I hoped that Hoyt didn't see us kiss. I didn't want Tommy to get into trouble. When I walked to the kitchen door and looked out to see why Hoyt called Tommy. I saw Tommy carrying a teen guy over his shoulder. I could see the guy kicking and hitting Tommy on the back, trying to get loose. I wanted to hit the boy to make him stop, but if I had been the boy, then I would be doing the same thing. That's beside the point. He was hitting the guy that I loved and it made me mad. I had to go in the living so I didn't do something I would regent. I sat on the couch and looked at the TV. I saw that Monty was smile at me. I looked over at him and smiled I didn't have to force it because he could always change my mood.

"What's wrong, Beth? You were happy a moment ago when Tommy and you were kissing."

When I went to respond, we heard the guy Tommy had been carrying, "Let me go, please!" as Tommy took him down to the basement.

"It's nothing," I said.

He looked from the door back at me. "I know you, Beth. I know when you are upset."

I looked up at him. "Nothing gets past you, does it?" I said and smiled. "That guy; I wanted to punch him, because he was hitting Tommy. I come in here before I could do something stupid."

"Don't worry, Tommy's a tough bird."

"I know, but I just feel bad. He was hitting the guy that I love and I couldn't do anything about it."

Monty smiled. "I told Luda that I saw you guys. She's so happy you two are together now. Just like I am, but I have to say, it's about time. Everyone was waiting on it."

I had to smile too. I got up off the couch and hugged him. "I am happy too," I said, pulling away from him and sat back on the couch. "I get my dark prince," I mumbled to myself with a smile.

Hoyt came in the room and saw me on the couch and not at the store. He put up his sheriff's hat and sat on the couch with me. "So why are you here and not at the store? Is Mama back? I didn't see the car."

I looked up at him. "Mama dropped me off then she went back to the store."

"I see," he said, turning from me to look at the TV. I got up from the couch and walked out the front door. The screen door shut and I sat on one of the chairs sitting out there. The hot sun baking down on me but I couldn't be in the room with Hoyt right now. Then it hit me, tomorrow is Halloween. My brother Michael kills on Halloween. I began to get scared I needed Tommy with me now, but he was busy. I looked around the yard like Michael would pop out of the air and kill me.
