Disclaimer: How many times do I have to write this? I will never own this show, no matter how much I want to.
After the call we just watch TV. He has tried to put his arm around me once or twice, but I slap him.
"Jade don't worry about your brother. I'm sure he'll be fine."
"And how would you know? You haven't ever even bothered to talk to him. Probably the closest thing you'll get to talking to a family member of mine."
"Your brother is going to kill me when he sees me." I nod. "Do you miss him?" I sigh.
"Yes. I was little when I last saw him and I was hoping that if he went with my grandma someday he would protect me from my dad. Or anyone. But I was little, and dreams don't always come true." He looks to the floor.
"You have never really felt safe, have you?"
"No. Not since I was in my mother's arms. Ever since she died I've felt alone. Like no one cared for me." I leave the part about Beck out because; for once we are having a conversation and not an argument. He hurt me even more though.
"I care for you. I love you." It takes all my strength to stop myself from kissing him. He notices my struggle and smiles. "I know you still love me. You just won't admit."
"No! I don't love you!" I lie.
"You're cute when you lie. You should lie more often." He chuckles.
"I'm not lying."
"Yes you are. Your cute, guilty face says it all." He's still chuckling.
"I'm not cute!"
"You're cute and you're beautiful."
"I am not cute!" It comes out harsher this time.
"You're still lying, therefore you are still cute."
"Oh lord help me." I mutter. "Do I really have to live with you?"
"I'll be dead within a week."
"Your brother is coming tomorrow." I imitate his deep voice.
"What I meant to say was: I'm so glad you're here! Now I can get you back after all the terrible things I've done to you."
"I told you I am sorry. You don't know how much pain I'm going through. I feel terrible."
"So do I. I feel like I need to barf." I gag.
"Get to the bathroom!" I run into his house and into the bathroom and hurl. I clean up and go back to the RV. "You alright?"
"Fine." He starts his homework and I watch more Tv. It's fairly loud, but he doesn't seem to mind. Soon he finishes his homework and we go to bed. He sleeps on the couch like he said he would, and I sleep on his bed. I can feel him watching me. I try to ignore him, but I can't.
"Stop staring at me."
"Er... sorry." He keeps staring.
"Stop." No answer. "Beck stop. I need to sleep."
"Um sorry." I hear him shift on the couch. I start to daze off when I hear him move again. I open my eyes and he's staring at me again.
"Why are you staring at me?"
"It's been awhile since I've seen you sleep and I forgot how beautiful and peaceful you looked." I'm not sure how to answer that.
"Um thanks, I guess."
"Good night Jade."
I wait until she is asleep until I look at her again. Actually I am glancing at her every 10 seconds before she fell asleep. I can't help it. I let go of her once and I won't let it happen again. I can't lose my angel again. Never again. I wonder how she felt when I broke up with her. Probably like she had no love. And to add on to that her dad was in town that evening. What was I thinking? She may be strong, but not stronger than her father. She needed me then, but I wasn't there. I close my eyes and mumble.
"I'm sorry, Jade." And drift off to sleep.
I wake up to a scream.
"Jade!" I look over to her. She looks like she has just run a marathon. She is breathing hard and she has sweat on her forehead. She also has tears in her eyes. I get on my bed and hold her. "What's wrong?" I stroke her hair.
"My dad he-he had a gun and-" Tears start pouring down her face.
"Shhhhh. I'm here. I'm here."
"St-stop, Beck. I'm not a little girl. I can handle myself." The tears stop and her breathing slows a little bit.
"You expect me to leave you?"
"No. Not gonna happen." She looks at the clock. Her eyes widen.
"We need to leave my brother's plane is landing soon." We change and do all the other stuff necessary to get ready and then leave. We arrive at the airport 30 minutes later, 10 minutes late. I park and she jumps out of the car and runs into the airport. I follow her. When I catch up to her she is staring at her brother. I walk over to her not taking my eyes off her. She holds her mouth and runs to the restroom. Once she's out of sight I look to Max. You can tell they're siblings. They have the same expressions and the same icy blue eyes. His hair is brown and short. He is about as tall as me, muscular, and handsome.
"So you must be Beck." I sigh and run my hand through hair, ready for what's coming.
"I've heard a lot about you. You made her happy for once in her life and it's not easy to make her happy. Then you got her pregnant and broke up with her. Tell me, what were those cuts on her face from?"
"Her- er... your guy's father."
"Yea, I am. You're a good guy and I'm glad you love her. I'm glad it's you and not some jerk. You actually love her too."
"Wait how do you know? We just met."
"The way you looked at her says it all. Why did you break up with her?"
"I don't know. I think I was just confused."
"You broke her heart. She said some pretty bad stuff about you that night."
"She called you?"
"Yea. After she went home she called me. I could hear some crying in the background." I walk to the nearest wall and my fist connects with it.
"Oh my god, I'm such an idiot!" I yell. "I can't believe I did that to her. And to add on to that, her dad was home that night."
"Jade's tough. She got through it. One more question. Why are you here with her today?"
"I need her back. It's not a want. It's a need. And I know she needs it too. She just won't take me back. I need her away from her father. So she's living with me now."
"Jade can be stubborn. I need to talk to my god damned father about her. She needs to come." Jade walks out of the restroom. She's as pale as ever and is stumbling. I rush to her side and help her.
"Stop. I'm fine. I can handle myself." Reluctantly, I let go of her. She trips and I catch her. "Stop." She tries to get out of my grip, but I don't let her. Max grabs his bags and we rush to the car. He sits shotgun and Jade sits in the back. He looks at me and nods. I drive to Jade's house. She screams once she sees it.
"No! No! Please don't take me in there! Please! I swear I'm innocent!" Max and I run to the backseat. We try to get her out of the car, but she won't move. Her voice is a lot higher than usual. Almost like a little girl's.
"What's wrong with her?" Max asks.
"I don't know. I've never seen her act like this before." We try again and we get her out this time. Max softly nudges Jade and she goes up to the door and opens it. She walks in and we follow her. There is no light in the house.
"Hello Jade. Here for some fun?" Her dad asks. He raises his hand, about to smack her. Max pulls her back and he steps in. He grabs his father's hand and twists it. I grab Jade and pull her into my arms. Tears start to pour from her face. "Max?"
"Yea it's me." He says angrily.
"Where have you been? You and I could have had some fun with Jade."
"What the hell is wrong with you? You expect me to beat my own sister?"
"You're my son aren't you?"
"You know how your mother died?" Jade froze. "I killed her. Weak and pathetic. Just like Jade." Anger boils up inside me. Max punches him in the face. Jade starts to cry. I pull her out of the house.
"Please calm down Jade. Everything is going to be okay." She struggles to break free, but I pull her to me. I look into her eyes and see terror.
"In my dream h-he almost killed me. Please don't let him hurt me. Please." I remember her telling me about that earlier.
"I won't let him hurt you. Don't worry." I pull her into a hug. Then she pushes me away.
"What are you doing?" Her voice is back to normal. So one hug and the old Jade is back. We walk to the car. Max comes out a few minutes later.
"Hey." He says.
"Hey." I say, but Jade just gets into the backseat. Max is about to get into the car when I stop him. "Thanks for protecting her. Are you always this mature?"
"May I say the same for you and no, I'm not. Jade gave her life for mine, so when it comes to her I will protect her at any cost."
"But your father said something about only treating women bad."
"He would have taught me to treat them horribly. I wouldn't be able to live with myself if I was like him. She may not be the nicest person alive, but she is my sister."
"Hurry up!" Jade yells. We get into the car and I drop Max off at his hotel. Jade gets out of the car to say goodbye. She sits in shotgun when she's done.
"What did he say?" I ask.
"I don't know. Thanks."
"Thanks for what?"
"I don't know!" As usual the drive is silent. We get to my RV and she falls on my bed and passes out.
Here you guys go! I hope you enjoyed. So now Max will be in the story some. I hope that Cell Block will be as good as the promo makes it sound. Anyway, please review! Thanks!
