Chapter 25

I’m Not Avoiding you…I’m protecting you.

 

Tyler’s POV

 

That morning I’d woken up to a small note left from Cassie, it had said that she had some things to work out, I knew she was going to finish it with Tom; we could finally be together! Last night was one of the most amazing nights of my life and it had shown me that Cassie loved me more than anything. I was still fuming from the idea that Tom had beaten her but I knew that Cassie was a big girl and that she could take care of herself; and anyway Tom loved her just as much as I did, he would want her to be happy wouldn’t he?

I walked down to the beach expecting to find Dana, Caleb and Cassie lying on our usual sunbeds on the beach, but instead I just found Dana and Caleb. I was just about to ask them where Cassie was when Dana said ‘Hey Tyler! Have you seen Cassie this morning?’ This is when I became worried.

‘No… I thought she would be with you.’ I said the worry in my voice showing.

‘Ah don’t worry about it she probably went with Tom.’ Caleb said, they were unaware of what had happened these last few days.

‘Where did he go?’ The panic was plain in my voice and face now.

‘He said he was going for a walk, why what’s wrong?’ Dana sat up slightly.

‘Nothing, you know how it is… I just feel weird with him around.’ I tried to keep my cool.

‘Ah ok… shit!’ Dana said, ‘I was really hoping she’d come with me to check out the venue today and sort out the decorations, it’s only two days now!’ She kissed Caleb’s cheek and I tried to smile but failed.

‘I’m feeling a bit sick,’ I said, ‘I’m going to go back to the room for a lie down.’

I began walking away from them and as soon as I was far enough away from Caleb and Dana that they wouldn’t see me I began sprinting, my heart was pounding and it wasn’t from the running it was from the fear, fear that I would find Cassie in a state. When I reached Cassie and Tom’s hotel room I slammed my fists against the door.

‘Cassie! Cassie are you in there?!?’ I shouted, I didn’t care if Tom had come back from his walk and could hear me. ‘Cassie if he’s hurt you I swear to God I’ll kill him!’

‘Tyler…’ it was a whisper at first but I was sure I’d heard it.

‘Tyler!’ She shouted now.

‘Cassie I’m here what’s wrong? What did he do to you?’ Her voice was croaky and that meant he must have bruised her throat in some way, I was stupid to think that Tom wouldn’t hurt her; he didn’t love her he just wanted to own her and flash her around like a diamond accessory.

‘Tyler! You have to leave he can’t see you!’ She was crying, I could hear it in her voice.

‘I won’t leave you!’ I shouted back.

‘You have to! Please Tyler I’m scared of what he’ll do, please just go.’ Less than 24 hours ago she’d asked me to stay with her.

‘Ok but when I see him… he’s a dead man. I love you Cassie.’ I called through the door.

I heard her choke on her tears and heard her throat wheeze, that was some permanent damage there, how dare he?

Then I heard it ‘I love you so much Tyler.’

 

Cassie’s POV

 

When Tyler turned away from the door and left I began to break down again, the pain was unbearable. I looked at myself in the mirror; my mascara had run and I had a dark bruise along my jaw line and a black eye, my dress was hanging off from where Tom had ripped the buttons of and my neck was bruised and my breasts were covered in bruises and scratches, there was a long river of blood flowing down from my cleavage and down onto my stomach. And then the worst thing was the blood stains down my legs from where Tom had raped me roughly. I’d never seen this side of Tom the side that was cruel, rough and abusive. But I could see no way to escape, I’d tried to leave him this morning and this is what had become of me.

I knew that if Tyler had seen me he would have gone crazy, he would have murdered Tom and would’ve ended up in prison, and that wasn’t going to help anyone. Tom had left after he’d raped me and had said harshly that he was disappointed in me, that I was disgusting and that he would never let me leave him. I was embarrassed and ashamed, I’d never thought this would happen to me and here I was covered in blood, bruises and scratches breaking at the seams.

That was when the door was broken down.
