LOVE THE WAY YOU LIE
 
 CHAPTER THIRTEEN
 
It was night time and everyone was out, Amber was of with some guy she had just started dating from school and the guy’s were of doing what ever they did in secret.
 
Turning the television off I closed my eyes and turned to the only thing that kept me sane anymore.
 
"My Immortal" By Evanescence

I'm so tired of being here
Suppressed by all my childish fears
And if you have to leave
I wish that you would just leave
'Cause your presence still lingers here
And it won't leave me alone

These wounds won't seem to heal
This pain is just too real
There's just too much that time cannot erase


When you cried I'd wipe away all of your tears
When you'd scream I'd fight away all of your fears
And I held your hand through all of these years
But you still have
All of me

You used to captivate me
By your resonating light
Now I'm bound by the life you left behind
Your face it haunts
My once pleasant dreams
Your voice it chased away
All the sanity in me

These wounds won't seem to heal
This pain is just too real
There's just too much that time cannot erase

When you cried I'd wipe away all of your tears
When you'd scream I'd fight away all of your fears
And I held your hand through all of these years
But you still have
All of me


I've tried so hard to tell myself that you're gone
But though you're still with me
I've been alone all along

When you cried I'd wipe away all of your tears
When you'd scream I'd fight away all of your fears
And I held your hand through all of these years
But you still have
All of me.
 
Opening my eyes I got to my feet and headed out to the garage, I looked around the cars and spotting the yellow Porsche I wondered where the keys were kept to them.
 
Heading back into the kitchen I looked around but couldn’t find anything then I glanced towards the door where the study I wondered but that would be to easy to find every single key to all those beautiful cars.
 
With a quick glance towards the front door I hurried over to the study and tried the handle you would think that guy’s trying to keep their lives secret would make sure to lock their doors but as I twisted the door handle it opened.
 
With a sigh of relief I quickly hurried into the room I headed for the large oak desk ignoring the computer sitting there that curiosity would just have to wait.
 
Finding all the doors in the desk locked I sat down in the large leather chair and looked around the room while wondering where these guy’s would keep cars.
 
It was staring right at me, right beside the door was a key hook with every single key to those cars hanging on it getting quickly to my feet I went over to them and searched them, thankfully they were colored coded for the car they were for so spying the one with a yellow tag I grabbed it and hurried out being careful to close the door again.
 
Like a little kid I squealed in delight as the car came to life purring like a large cat being more careful then Kane I slowly exited the garage and made my way down the driveway but once I reached the road I opened it up.
 
Trying to remember the way that Kane had taken me the previous day I made my way towards Larry’s bar.
 
Parking in the full car parking lot I hurried towards the building before the chill of the evening could penetrate me.
 
Dana was behind the bar racing around trying to serve all the customers but when she saw me standing near the door she gestured for me to come over.
 
Sitting down in the only empty bar stool I gave her an unsure smile, she sat a coke down in front of me before serving the girl sitting next to then she turned her attention back to me “please tell me that you are here to perform for us” I shook my head “nope sorry” she looked at me pleadingly “please Annabelle it would be nice to hear you sing while I am racing around serving these guys.”
 
With a sigh I looked towards the small stage “I tell you what I will do two songs for you just because you asked me so nicely” Dana laughed then stuck her hand out “deal now get up there hopefully it will calm some of these guys down so I can start getting ready to close for the night.”
 
Taking to the stage I looked towards Dana “hi everyone my name is Annabelle, Dana asked me to sing for you guy’s so here goes.”
 
"Second Chance" Shine Down

My eyes are open wide
And by the way, I made it
Through the day
I watched the world outside
By the way, I'm leaving out
Today

I just saw Hayley's comet
Shooting
Said why you always running
In place?
Even the man in the
Moon disappeared
Somewhere in the
Stratosphere

Tell my mother,
Tell my father
I've done the best I can
To make them realize
This is my life
I hope they understand
I'm not angry, I'm just saying...
Sometimes goodbye
Is a second chance

Please don't cry
One tear for me
I'm not afraid of
What I have to say
This is my one and
Only voice
So listen close, it's
Only for today

I just saw Hayley's comet
Shooting
Said why you always running
In place?
Even the man in the
Moon disappeared
Somewhere in the
Stratosphere


Tell my mother,
Tell my father
I've done the best I can
To make them realize
This is my life
I hope they understand
I'm not angry, I'm just saying...
Sometimes goodbye
Is a second chance

Here's my chance
This is my chance

Tell my mother,
Tell my father
I've done the best I can
To make them realize
This is my life
I hope they understand
I'm not angry, I'm just saying...
Sometimes goodbye
Is a second chance

Sometimes goodbye
Is a second chance
Tell my mother,
Tell my father
I've done the best I can
To make them realize
This is my life
I hope they understand
I'm not angry, I'm just saying...
Sometimes goodbye
Is a second chance
Tell my mother,
Tell my father
I've done the best I can
To make them realize
This is my life
I hope they understand
I'm not angry, I'm just saying...
Sometimes goodbye
Is a second chance.
 
 
The bar erupted into cheering and screaming as I finished, Dana raced from behind the bar and joined me on the stage “okay folks this little lady promised me two songs so tell us Annabelle what other song you are going to sing for us?”
 
Looking out the crowd watching and waiting for my answer I sighed sadly then took the mike from Dana “I am going to sing Broken Doll by Paloma Faith.”
 
Grabbing a stool I spied sitting in the corner of the stage I pulled it over to the mike and sat down then took a deep breath fighting my tears as I started to sing.
 
I'm a broken doll and you're the puppeteer
Take control for me and wipe away my fears

I don't claim to be perfect
I know I'm damaged goods
But I wanna be led out of darkness just like every lady would
Lick my wounds and watch them seal with your healing heart
Embrace my sadness, Look after me
Coz there is no one else I 'd ask

I'm a broken doll and you're the puppeteer
Take control for me and wipe away my fears
Piece me all together, though broken I am sweet
You thought my heart was made of wood but I can hear it beat

I am scared of shadows in the night
When you are not there by my side
Sick of nightmares in my sleep
When there is no place I can hide
See the beauty in the blood that drips down from my eyes
Hold the parts that were ripped out
That took me by surprise

I'm a broken doll and you're the puppeteer
Take control for me and wipe away my fears
Piece me all together though broken I am sweet
You thought my heart was made of wood but I can hear it beat

BOOM BOOM Here it goes BOOM BOOM
To the sound of the grand piano
I am dancing in your light
In the light in here

I'm a broken doll and you're the puppeteer
Take control for me and wipe away my fears

I'm a broken doll and you're the puppeteer
Take control for me and wipe away my fears
Piece me all together though broken I am sweet
You thought my heart was made of wood but I can hear it beat

I'm a broken doll and you're the puppeteer
Take control for me and wipe away my fears
Piece me all together the broken eye and sweet
You thought my heart was made of wood but I can hear it beat.


When I finished I had tears blinding me and the whole bar was silent, Dana pulled me from the stool and wrapped her arm around my waist “ladies and gentlemen please put your hands together for Annabelle Roberts.”
 
The bar again erupted as Dana led me of the stage and behind the bar with her where there was a small kitchen.
 
Blinking away my tears I looked around me “you live here in the bar?” Dana nodded grabbing a glass from over the sink and pouring some clear liquid into it and handing it to me “Larry and I have a home above the bar but the kitchen as you can see is down here” I nodded then gulped down what she had given me and immediately started to choke making her chuckle “honey take it easy that wasn’t water I just handed you.”
 
“No I am guessing it was vodka am I right Dana?” Dana and I swung around to find Kane standing in the doorway “after that last performance I thought she could do with something a little stronger then just coke.”
 
Kane nodded stepping away from the door and moving to my side “Dana could I use your rooms upstairs to talk to Bell please?” Dana looked at me thoughtfully then nodded “you can but do not go near my bedroom Kane and if you upset my little girl anymore then she already is I will hunt you down and unman you is that clear?” Kane nodded “yes ma’am I hear you” Dana nodded then patted my shoulder gently before heading back out to the bar.
 
Kane took my arm gently and pulled me towards some stairs “that last song you sang was beautiful in a weird sort of way Bell” I nodded smiling sadly “when I first got home after everything happened I would sing it for Nigel because I felt like the only time I was real and the nightmares stayed away was when he was there with me.”
 
Kane pulled me through a door and I found myself standing in Dana’s small lounge room above the bar but it was so quite up here you wouldn’t even know that there was a bar filled with people below.
 
Kane sat down on the couch pulling me with him “Bell that song you just sang wasn’t meant for your brother tonight was it?” I shrugged trying to keep my expression blank “Bell that song it was for me tonight wasn’t it? You saw me sitting in the crowd I know that you did.”
 
With a sad sigh I nodded “you wish for me to be your puppeteer Bell to take away your fears, to piece you back together then you have to let me in let me show you that I am not a bad guy that I can hold you and keep those nightmares at bay.”
 
He gently pulled my face around “let me show you that I can love you and not hurt you like that bastard you were with” he pressed his mouth against my ear “let me love you as you were meant to be loved.”
 
Shivering as his lips caressed my ear I muttered “no you may not be the same kind of dangerous as Reece was, but you are still dangerous and I do not want to be around that anymore.”
 
Kane gently lifted me being careful not to scare me as he placed me on his lap and curled his arms around my waist “Bell I am not what you think I am I wish you could see that and believe me when I tell you I will never hurt you” I squeezed my eyes closed “I can’t, I can’t trust anyone anymore.”
 
Giving an angry sigh Kane brushed my hair away from my neck then pressed a kiss to it “I will give you time Bell because I know in time you will find that there are some people in this world you can trust like Dana, she would never do anything to hurt you.”
 
Slowly I lay my head back onto his shoulder and closed my eyes, his arms tightened around me keeping me safe as I started to drift to sleep after so many restless nights
