…………… The feeling of his lips on my neck sent me ridged, my heart
was in my mouth. I was turned round and pressed against the wall
Arron's mouth consuming mine. I put my hands flat on his chest
and tried to push him away from me he caught my neck with his
free hand stopping me.
"Now that's not nice" he chuckled his eyes burning into me "I
think we need to talk a walk" he held my arm to the point tears
sprang to my eyes as he dragged me away from the safety of the
others who were sitting hooting with laughter. The cool Fall air
hit me I was used to it being eighty degrees not fifty I shivered
a little he pulled me to the back of the lot where his beat up
old pick up was and pulled down the tail gate and histed me in to
the bed of it.
"What the hell do you think you're doing?" I snapped trying to
control how much fear was in my voice.
"Getting re acquainted with my soon to be famous girlfriend" He
hoped in to the back and caught me round the waist as I tried to
get out over the side "I missed you"
"You mean you missed your punch bag" I snapped punching him as
hard as I could and hurting my hand more than him making him
"I worked damn hard on the farm this summer" he flexed his arm
round me the muscle in him now was huge. "Now Kyle has QB
competition with the distance I can throw. He teeth grazed my
neck I balled my fist and punched his jaw, his hand moved fast
and slapped my face so hard I'm sure my brain rattled, he held my
throat again making me choke "No what was it that you said about
me not being good in bed" His hand was under my skirt as I kicked
at him he moved and pinned it under his leg. "You always did like
it a little rough didn't you?" he smiled still holding my throat
The sound of his zipper on his jeans made me struggle harder. "Oh
come on baby I want to be able to tell everyone I screwed a rock
Everything I did was useless against the sheer size and weight of
Arron, I gave up fighting against him I was damned if I'd stayed
in Florida and damned for coming here. How could half of my life
be so good when the other half was so, so bad. The grip on my
throat was lessend as Arron grunted and rolled off of me.
"Damn I've dreamt of having you again" he murmured.
"You're a sick son of a bitch" I coughed as the air raced back
into my lungs "You're a rapist and a murderer" I looked at the
torn underwear that lay to the side.
"Oh whatever you wanted me as much as I wanted you I could tell"
he laughed "and as for that kid I did both of us a huge favor" he
lit a cigarette and blew smoke rings at me.
"I hate you" my hand closed on the handle of the baseball bat in
the bed of the truck I swung it in the limited space and
connected with his head his eyes rolled back into his head for a
split second giving e enough time to scrabble out of his truck
and get across the parking lot skidding to a halt at Mom's truck
I got in and locked the doors and hid behind the seats peering
over the bottom of the somkey window to see Arron staggering
around in a daze. I pulled my phone from my pocket.
Alfie * Chris please tell me you're not locked in the bathroom
I could hear laughing and jeering
Me * No I'm not feeling so good right now I think the trip and
the excitement has upset my stomach
Alfie * you okay?
Me * I'm in the truck can you make excuses for me and tell Emma
I'll call her and then let's go to Green bay and meet the others
Alfie * okay… Chris you sound scared.
Me * I'm sick that's all
Alfie * 2 minutes then
I hung up and hid as Arron swayed past the car shouting my name a
trickled of blood running down his forehead. Alfie came over to
the car and opened the door. I slid into the passenger seat
making him jump and squeal like a girl.
"Jeez Chris you scared the crap out of me"
"Lets go… out of here turn right till you get to the junction and
first ramp on the right will take us to Green bay" I said quickly
my eyes not leaving Arron's retreating back as he wandered. Alfie
started the engine calling attention to us I slid down in the
"Right I think you need to tell me what the hells going on?"
Alfie snapped "Who was the monster sized dude shouting Chris in
the parking lot?
'The one that caused all the problems" I nodded.
Alfie eyed me as we passed under a street light. I turned away as
the familiar countryside slipped by the window as we hauled ass
the 75 miles to Green Bay. I fell into a pained sleep as my neck
hurt my legs hurt and my face throbbed. I didn't wake until the
humming from the engine stopped I looked out of the window as
Alfie got out and opened the truck of the car and Kerrion and
Pete ran through the doors with a cart for the bags. I took a
deep breath and got out of the car.
"You guys made it" Kerion laughed hugging me you "should have
been with us we had dinner with Nickelback" I pulled away from
him and smiled weakly.
"I wish we had of now tonight was a bust"
"Rough time" Pete looked at me as Alfie closed the trunk and
parked the truck.
"Like you wouldn't believe" I groaned walking was now hurting
like a bitch the four of us walked into the bright light of the
reception of the Radissson Green Bay.
"We have connecting rooms. The whole top floor has been taken
over for Nickelback and all of the people working for them"
Kerion explained as we got into the elevatot. "holy Crap Chris
what happened to your face" he put hs finger under my chin and
lifted it to the light Pete and Alfie pulled a face.
"Like I said rough night"
"Was this that dude" Alfie asked quietly
"Yeah, I used to be his punch bag and he picked up where he left
off" I fought back the tears. 'Look don't worry about it I just
want a hot bath and sleep"
"Please… I'm going to be fine" I stepped off the elevator. I had
to be fine… I had people relying on my right now and that was
