ok, so I wasn't going to post this chapter till tomorrow morning but Liz Gillies just re-tweeted me and I'm over joyed (I may have screamed and started trembling for a few minutes) because she is my idol/inspiration and in my happiness I decided to post up this chapter now. Make me even happier and Review :)
I sat outside Jade's door with my back pressed up against it, waiting for Tori to call me back in. It had been about 15 minutes, surely that had finished talking by now. I pressed my ear up against it but I couldn't hear anything. Grumbling I pulled myself up and walked into the room.
Tori looked up at me from Jade's side. She was smiling faintly and was looking more relaxed then she'd been all month. Jade was sleeping peacefully beside her.
"Why didn't you call me in?" I asked. I wasn't annoyed though, Jade looked at peace so they obviously hadn't been fighting.
"Um, Jade asked me not to." She admitted guiltily.
I frowned at that. Why wouldn't Jade want me to be around her?
"Did she say why?"
"I think that's probably a conversation that should be done between you and her." She gradually replied.
I looked at her in puzzlement but shrugged my shoulders. I sat myself down on Jade's bed and gently stoked her hair. As my hand brushed against her forehead I felt how warm it was.
"Hey Tori, does Jade have a temperature?" I asked worriedly.
Tori felt her head and bit down on her lip nervously. "Let's call in a nurse and ask." She said while pushing the button to summon one.
A minute later a friendly looking old lady stepped inside the room.
"What seems to be the problem dearies?"
"My girlfriend might have a temperature, is that safe for her condition?" I asked.
The nurse felt her forehead but didn't seem fazed. "I wouldn't worry too much pumpkins. It's a usual effect after a blood transfusion and it doesn't seem so bad. She's already on a lot of medication so I won't put her on any more. If she seems to be getting worse let me know and I'll check up on her again."
We nodded our heads in understanding and thanked her. I was still jittery about it though. Tori's phone ringing distracted me from my nerves.
"Hello Cat?... Cat what's wrong?... Cat calm down I can't understand you... ok look put Andre on the phone."
"What's going on?" I asked her. She shrugged her shoulders and put the phone on speaker.
"Hey Tori it's Andre. Sorry about that. Cat's still a little freaked out by something we saw at Jade's house."
"What did you see?" Tori asked nervously, almost like she was afraid to hear the answer.
"Oh, the carpet was stained with Jade's blood."
"WHAT?" I screamed. He almost said that too casually for me to comprehend what I had just heard.
"Look I'm trying to drive and Cat's crying in the backseat so I got to go. We're coming straight back to the hospital. We'll pick up her things from her mum's house some other time. See ya."
Tori looked like she wanted to be sick and slumped back down in the seat. I was beyond furious right now. I was going to kill him for hurting Jade. Hey wait a second, what's actually happened with her dad and his friends. The last time I saw them they were being put into a police car.
"Tori, what's happening with Jade's dad?" I asked.
She looked shocked at the question then became deep in thought. "My dad said something about him staying in jail till he goes to court."
"What do you mean till he goes to court? Why hasn't he been locked up for good yet?"
"I don't know. I guess they have to give him a hearing."
"THEY DO NOT BLOODY HAVE TO. WHAT'S TO DISSUCSS? IT'S PRETTY OBVIOUS THAT HE TRIED TO FUCKING KILL HIS ONLY DAUGHTER." I screamed. This was beyond unfair.
"You'll wake up Jade Beck, be quiet. Look I'll speak to my dad later and find out what's going on for sure just please relax for now. And don't tell Jade this, we don't want her worrying about any more problems."
I wanted to scream and smash something but I knew that wouldn't help the situation in any way so instead I crawled up next to Jade and wrapped my arms around her waist.
"I won't let him near you Jade. I promise."
Sorry that this chap was so short but I just got back to school and its exam time so forgive me if the next few chapters aren't very long either. And thank you to everyone who reviewed the last chapter for me. Please continue reviewing and I'll post up the next chap soon.
