Chapter 26

The Rescue

 

Tyler’s POV

 

After Cassie had refused to let me in to her hotel room I knew that I had no choice, I sprinted back to the beach and found Dana and Caleb, I told them as we walked all the had happened over the last few days, about Cassie and I getting back together – the were happy about this – but when I told them about Tom finding out and hitting Cassie and about how she wouldn’t open the door and how I was sure she had a bruised throat they began sprinting with me and Dana had tears falling down her cheeks.

We reached the door and it was easy to hear the wheezy and quiet sobs coming from the other side.

‘Dana stand back,’ Caleb said to her, ‘we don’t know what state she’s in and I don’t want to upset you.’ He kissed her cheek and Dana stood back obediently.

Caleb and I ran back a long way and then ran at full pelt into the hotel room door, I knew the moment we hit the door that we’d broken through and Caleb and I fell to the floor. Shit. It wasn’t until I got over the pain in my shoulder that I noticed the blood on the floor and Cassie in the corner. Her mascara had run, her dress was ripped she was covered in bruises and scratches and worst of all her pants had been removed and she had blood stains down her legs. I almost cried, how could he have done this to her?

‘Oh shit!’ Caleb ran over to her. I was in a state of shock but when her eyes met mine and she smiled slightly I ran to her.

‘Cassie! Cassie, can you hear me?’ I was stroking her cheeks.

‘Dana get the hotel staff and call the police and an ambulance!’ Caleb shouted.

‘Tyler you came back,’ she whispered, ‘I thought you were going to leave me.’

‘Never,’ I whispered back. I picked her up and placed her on the bed cradling her into my chest as she cried soft tears.

‘I was so scared.’ She cried.

‘I’m here now.’ I replied simply, ‘and I’m not going anywhere, I promise.’

‘Tyler… I love you.’

The paramedics came in then and I travelled to the hospital with her holding her hand the whole time, as the doctor inspected her abdomen she winced and I couldn’t help but feel angry that I couldn’t wrap my hands around Tom’s neck. The police had found out that Tom had left Mexico on an early flight back to England and the police would be waiting for him there when he arrived and he would be arrested immediately. It had been his intention to leave Cassie to die in that hotel room covered in blood and alone. If I ever saw him again I would kill him.

 

Cassie’s POV

 

I can’t describe the feeling I had had when Tyler and Caleb had burst through the door; it was hope in the strongest possible form. I knew all along that Tyler wouldn’t give up on me, but I was sure that I would’ve been dead by the time he’d reached me.

Tyler sat by my side at the hospital, like he was afraid to leave me in case I disappeared and he lost me, I needed him by my side if I was being truthful he was the only thing anchoring me to earth at this moment. The doctor had pressed on my stomach and it felt like my insides were on fire and I was being stabbed a million times. My heart was heavy and ached more than I could tell.

I couldn’t sleep that night in the hospital, Tyler rested his head near my lap and fell easily into slumber I stroked his hair. The flashbacks came then, the counsellor at the hospital had said that I would be in a state of shock for a while but it was harder to cope with than I had thought it would be. I could hear my screams but no one else could, the pain between my legs made me feel as though I was being split in half and Tom cursed in my ears and insulted me. Tears began falling down my cheeks and my heart rate monitor went up instantly, my breathing became shallow and Tyler woke up.

‘Cassie!’ He stroked my face, ‘calm down, I’m here. He’s gone and he won’t hurt you again.’

He got up on the hospital bed with me and I turned into his chest, I calmed almost straight away and before I knew it my eyes were drooping and I fell into a deep sleep.

 

Tyler’s POV

 

Tomorrow it was Dana and Caleb’s wedding, they had offered to call it off but Cassie had insisted that it would go on. She was being released from the hospital today, but she was still asleep and I sat by her side while Caleb and Dana sat behind me.

‘So what did the doctor say about…you know her getting… you know?’ Dana didn’t want to be rude or upset me in anyway.

‘She can still have babies.’ I smiled at this. And Caleb and Dana smiled with me.

After these last few days plans had been made and decisions had been made, I’d almost lost Cassie and I wasn’t willing to let that happen so she’d decided that she would move to America. She said it would be too difficult for her to return to England and work in the hospital where Tom had proposed and to collect her things from their apartment. I was so happy that the possibility of Cassie and I starting a life together was on the table and we were ready to begin it.

‘We’ll leave you two alone; we’ll meet you back at the hotel for the rehearsal dinner, all the guests are here now.’ Caleb said, rubbing my shoulder. He was a true friend and a great brother, I would never forget what he’d done for me these last few days, the days before his wedding he’d been running back and forth from the hotel and the hospital bringing me food and clean clothes. And most of all he’d helped me pick out the ring that was resting in my pocket in a red velvet case.
