LOVE THE WAY YOU
CHAPTER NINETEEN
 
Stepping out into the sun light after being away from it for four months I blinked against the brightness then looked towards my brother’s truck.
Blinking again I stared at my brother in disbelief, not only did he have a new truck be he looked different, he had bulked up in muscle and his hair fell a little longer down his neck “Nigel?” I asked unsure.
Nigel started to laugh as he pulled the passenger door open “yes Annie it is me” I shook my head smiling “what happened to you?” He chuckled at my question then pulled me into a hug “I have just been working out baby girl” I nodded looking him up and down “I can see that” he raised an eyebrow “I hope you think that I look better Annabelle Roberts?” I laughed then started nodding “yes you look good.”
He helped me get into the truck then raced around to his side to get in and start it “Annie are you still blaming yourself for what happened with Reece?” I shivered at the name but the fear and pain was barely there anymore “no Nig I do not, I was the victim of domestic abuse I may have only been a kid at the time but it was still abusive relationship and one that should never had happened.”
Nigel reached over patting my leg gently “that’s good baby girl” I looked out the window as he drove us home, back to Blake’s since my father had retired from the police force and had moved to Florida to live with my aunty.
Pulling up in the driveway Nigel turned the truck of then sat there staring at the house thoughtfully “Annie I know that you know that what we do here is Illegal but I have to ask you to keep your opinions to yourself and to stay right away from any business that is conducted in this house” I looked towards the house and slowly opened the door of the truck “don’t worry Nig I do not want to know what you do or want any part of it so I will keep quite and stay out of it” he gave a sigh of relief before jumping out of the truck and joining me on the driveway.
When he opened the front door I stepped in looking around me wearily but not for long since Amber came racing down the stairs throwing her arms around me “Annie welcome home” I smiled at her “thank you it is good to be here I think” she grinned at me then stepped aside as there was a girly squeal from the lounge room then Tony threw himself at me “Annie, Babe I have missed you so much and these guys do not have any sense when it comes to fashion.”
Nigel groaned and shook his head “Tony no one has any fashion sense when it comes to trying to be like you” I laughed and untangled myself from his arms.
Giving them all a smile I held my bags tighter “if you will all excuse me I am going to go upstairs and unpack then maybe just rest for awhile” they all nodded while joking around with each other, shaking my head I made my way up the stairs and to my room.
After sitting my bags down I walked to the window and looked outside at the back garden.
“Hello Bell” Kane said a little unsurely from behind me, slowly I turned to find him standing near the door “um hi” I muttered wearily.
He stepped into the room being careful to keep the door open “are you still angry with me?” I rose my eyebrows at his question “um actually Kane I wasn’t the one that was angry remember you were.”
He shook his head taking another step closer to me until he was standing so close our bodies nearly touched “I wasn’t angry Bell I was just scared that your mouth was going to get you into trouble” I sighed looking down at floor “look I’m sorry I shouldn’t have mentioned that you were apart of the mob and Nigel has warned me to keep quite and to stay out of your business so if that is what brings you here then you now know that you do not have to warn me.”
The space between us disappeared as he claimed my mouth and crushed me against his hard muscle body.
He pulled back smiling down at me “has anyone ever told you that you talk way to much?” I shook my head “then I just did, look baby I am not here to warn you to keep your beautiful mouth shut because I know that you would never say anything to anyone that could effect our business” I looked up into his eyes blushing slightly from the beautiful mouth comment.
Pressing his lips to my head he held me closer “I am so in love with you Annabelle Roberts” I clutched his waist and pressed my face into his chest “I love you too Kane Morgan and I am sorry for being so blind.”
He pulled back cupping my face between his hands “what do you mean Bell?” I sighed looking at him sadly “I never really gave you a chance because all I could see when I looked at you was Reece so I pushed you away and told myself that you would hurt me just like he did but I know can see that you were never like him and would never hurt me that way.”
Kane pressed his lips to mine whispering softly “never my sweet Bell” I sighed wrapping my arms around his neck and surrendered to his kiss.
He placed me on the bed then went to close the door before coming back to join me, he wrapped his arms around me protectively and pressed a kiss to my cheek “close your eyes Bell while I sing to you.”
Closing my eyes I waited for his sexy voice to wash over me.
 
LET ME LOVE YOU (Tim McGraw)

Sometimes I close my eyes
And imagine you're with me
Chasing passion into the night
All tangled in a dream.

Oh if you could see my heart
The way I feel inside
You would know just how far
I'm willing to go to get to you
There is nothing I won't do.

Show me what its like to lose control
Free the desire in your soul
Oh oh let me love you.

Let me take you to a place like no where else
Show you the things you never felt
Oh oh let me love you.

Oh I want to taste your kiss
Be the reason for your smile
Touch the magic on your skin
Be the one that drives you wild.

Oh if you could read my mind
You'd know you're everything I need
You'd see yourself through my eyes
You may understand what I'm going through
Just how much I want you.

Show me what its like to lose control
Free the desire in your soul
Oh oh let me love you.

Let me take you to a place like no where else
Show you the things you never felt
Oh oh let me love you.

Let me love you.
Let me love you!

Show you what its like to lose control
Free the desire in your soul
Oh oh let me love you.

Let me take you to a place like no where else
Show you the things you never felt
Oh oh let me love you.

Oh I love you.

Show you what its like to lose control
Free the desire in your soul
Oh oh let me love you.

Yeah baby.

Let me take you to a place like no where else
Show you the things you never felt
Oh oh let me love you.

Let me love you.
Let me love you.
Let me love you.
Let me love you.
 
When he finished singing I gave a tired smile “you do a good job of singing Tim McGraw songs” he chuckled while stroking my hair gently “thank you baby I just wish I was half as good as you” I smiled softly slowly falling to sleep to the sound of his heart beat beating gently in my ear.
In the morning I headed downstairs wearily worried that Kane would be back to hating me but I need not have worried, as soon as I entered the kitchen he jumped from the stool where he had been and wrapped his arms around me hugging me tightly while my brother and his family watched on.
Pulling away he took my hand leading me to the table but before I could sit down he sat first pulling me onto his lap folding his arms around me “so baby what do you want to eat” I shook my head “nothing I’m not hungry at the moment.”
He brushed my hair back behind my ear and kissed my cheek “baby you missed dinner last night so please have something even if it is just a piece of toast” I sighed then nodded my head “fine I will have some toast then I am going to go to the bar to see Dana and Larry.”
Kane kissed my cheek again and tightened his hold on my waist while Nigel past me a plate with two pieces of toast on it, I looked at the plate and felt vile in my throat but forced myself to butter it then start to eat it.
Seeing I was struggling to finish the last piece Kane grabbed it of me and ate it himself before kissing my neck “are you ready to go and see Dana and Larry?” I nodded untangling myself from him and getting to my feet.
Dana was working behind the bar but Larry was nowhere to be seen when we entered the bar, Kane said something to Dana that I couldn’t hear then he disappeared towards Larry’s office.
Dana sat a coke in front of me then poured a beer for another customer before coming back over, she leaned on the bar looking me up and down “wow honey I have to say that you are looking good” I looked down at myself then back up to her “really I didn’t think that I had changed at all.”
Dana grabbed herself a drink and rested her hip against the bar “what about in mind honey are you feeling better about yourself?” I nodded while running a finger around the top of my glass “yes I know that what Reece did to me was wrong and wasn’t my fault and that kind of love is just sick and not healthy to be in.”
Dana gave me a big warm smile “that’s good honey it is nice to see you not blaming yourself for what that creep did to you” she looked towards the stage “now we have missed your singing around here so how about giving us just one song while you wait for your man to come back?” I nodded getting to my feet “okay but be warned it is not going to be the sort I usually sing.”
Dana nodded then served another customer while I headed for the stage “hello everyone my name is Annabelle Roberts I was a victim of abuse but now I am moving on from that and picking myself up so I am going to sing a song that is about moving on it is by Miley Cyrus and is called the climb.”
can almost see it
That dream I am dreaming
But there's a voice inside my head saying
"You'll never reach it"

Every step I'm taking
Every move I make feels
Lost with no direction
My faith is shaking

But I gotta keep trying
Gotta keep my head held high

There's always gonna be another mountain
I'm always gonna wanna make it move
Always gonna be a uphill battle
Sometimes I'm gonna have to lose

Ain't about how fast I get there
Ain't about what's waiting on the other side
It's the climb

The struggles I'm facing
The chances I'm taking
Sometimes might knock me down
But no, I'm not breaking

I may not know it
But these are the moments that
I'm gonna remember most, yeah
Just gotta keep going


And I, I got to be strong
Just keep pushing on

'Cause there's always gonna be another mountain
I'm always gonna wanna make it move
Always gonna be a uphill battle
Sometimes I'm gonna have to lose

Ain't about how fast I get there
Ain't about what's waiting on the other side
It's the climb, yeah!

There's always gonna be another mountain
I'm always gonna wanna make it move
Always gonna be an uphill battle
Somebody's gonna have to lose

Ain't about how fast I get there
Ain't about what's waiting on the other side
It's the climb, yeah!

Keep on moving, keep climbing
Keep the faith, baby
It's all about, it's all about the climb
Keep the faith, keep your faith, whoa.
 
Arms wrapped around me from behind then I felt Kane’s breath on my cheek as he lent forwards to speak into the mike “ladies and gentlemen my name is Kane Morgan and I am totally in love with this girl and want to sing a song to her that tells her how I feel it is by West life and is called Flying without Wings.”
FLYING WITHOUT WINGS (West life)
Everybody's looking for that something
One thing that makes it all complete
You'll find it in strange places
Places you never knew it could be
Some find it in the face of their children
Some find it in their lover's eyes
Who can deny the joy it brings
When you find that special thing?
You're flying without wings
Some find it sharing every morning
Some; in their solitary lives
You find it in the works of others
A simple line can make you laugh or cry
You find it in the deepest friendships
The kind you cherish all your life
And, when you know how much that means
You've found that special thing
You're flying without wings
So, impossible as it may seem
You've got to fight for every dream
'Cause who's to know
Which one you let go
Would have made you complete.
Well, for me, it's waking up beside you
To watch the sun rise on your face
To know that I can say I love you
At any given time or place
Its little things that only I know
Those are the things that make you mine
And it's like flying without wings
'Cause you're my special thing
I'm flying without wings
And you're the place my life begins
And you'll be where it ends
I'm flying without wings
And that's the joy you bring
I'm flying without wings.
Gently I cupped his face between my hands smiling up into his eyes “I used to be scared of Kane but mostly of falling in love with him because I thought everyone was out to hurt me but slowly he showed me that he is not a bad man and that being with him would be the one good thing in my life and there is a song called broken doll that I would like to sing to show him just what he does for me because he is my puppeteer the one that puts me together and keeps me together, he is my everything.”
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.
 
Taking the mike between my hands I looked out across the bar “I used to be a victim and thought that I deserved to be hurt but the people in my life that love me showed me that I was a victim of a crime but there a lot of woman and men out there that are in the same bad situation I used to be in and this song is for them it is by Savage Garden and is called Two Beds and Coffee Machine.”
And I take another step
Slowly I open the door
Check that he is sleeping
Pick up all the broken glass and furniture on the floor
Been up half the night screaming now it's time to get away
Pack up the kids in the car
Another bruise to try and hide
Another alibi to write

Another ditch in the road
You keep moving
Another stop sign
You keep moving on
And the years go by so fast
Wonder how I ever made it through

And there are children to think of
Baby's asleep in the backseat
Wonder how they'll ever make it through this living nightmare
But the mind is an amazing thing
Full of candy dreams and new toys and another cheap hotel
Two beds and a coffee machine
But there are groceries to buy
And I know I'll have to go home

Another ditch in the road
You keep moving
Another stop sign
You keep moving on
And the years go by so fast
Wonder how I ever made it through

Another bruise to try and hide
Another alibi to write
Another lonely highway in the black of night
But there's hope in the darkness
You know you're going to make it

Another ditch in the road
Keep moving
Another stop sign
You keep moving on
And the years go by so fast
Silent fortress built to last
Wonder how I ever made it.
 
 Smiling through my tears I wrapped my arms around Kane’s waist “I just want to say to anyone that is that kind of relationship to get out while you can and do not believe their lies because they will never change and you do not deserve to be their victim and that there are men and women out there that will show you the love that you deserve.”
Kane wrapped his arms around me and kissed me passionately while the bar erupted into cheers.
Hugging Kane close against me I knew that he was apart of the mob and as such he would always break the law and do bad things but I would always know that when it comes to me he would never lay a hand on me and would take care of anyone that ever tried.
Reaching up I pressed my lips to his “I love you Kane Morgan” he smiled against my lips his eyes shinning with his love “and I love you my sweet Bell.”
Pulling away from him I took a quick bow for the still cheering bar before racing of stage and over to the bar to grab my waiting coke that Dana had for me.
While I was drinking it and talking to Dana and a couple of guys not much older then me Kane walked over and kissed my head with a look of apology in his eyes “sorry baby but we have to go my uncle needs me at the house pronto.”
Giving Dana a quick apology I quickly followed an anxious looking Kane out of the bar and towards his car “Kane is everything alright?” I asked anxiously as I caught up to him at the car “I don’t know Bell just get in the car so we can leave” he practically snarled at me in anger before jumping into the drivers seat and gunning the engine.
He didn’t speak to me the whole way home instead he spent the whole time on his phone calling in the others and telling them to hurry.
When we got to the house he jumped out and hurried into the house seeming to forget about me all together as I slowly got out of the car and followed him inside.
There were men everywhere and they all looked extremely dangerous with the guns they were all carrying visible through their clothes and tattoos all over their bodies.
Looking around me anxiously I finally spotted Kane and Blake talking to my brother and some other men.
Racing over to them I looked around them all nervously but when Kane spotted me he grabbed my arm hard pulling me away from the group and towards the stairs “get upstairs and stay there do you hear me?” I pulled my arm away from his and crossed them across my chest “not until you tell me what is going on” he shoved me hard making me look at him in shock “get the fuck upstairs now and stop fucking arguing with me when I do not have time for your bitchiness.”
Looking at him hurt by his words I shook my head “fuck you Kane Morgan do not come near me do not try to talk to me because from this moment on I hate you” I shouted hating that I had tears filling my eyes.
He shook his head giving me a cold look before turning and heading back to the others, I looked at him again talking to his brother and the others then I turned and fled upstairs slamming and locking my door before breaking everything in sight and cursing fucking Kane Morgan.
