LOVE THE WAY YOU LIE
CHAPTER TWENTY SIX
 
Josh held my waist tightly as we entered the dark interior of the building and when I would have stopped he gave my waist a gentle squeeze to make me keep going.
Tears filled my eyes as I watched the lady behind the bar racing around filling orders for all the customers.
Josh pulled me over towards her “hey Dana how about a beer?” Josh yelled over the top of everyone talking and suddenly all eyes were on us.
Dana blinked looking at us in shock “Annie, Josh oh my god is it really you?” Josh laughed while hugging me tight “yeah its us so how about those beers after all we are legal now.”
Dana laughed then looked towards me but the smile she gave me quickly fell when she got a good look at me “Annie what the hell happened to you?”
Looking towards the stage I had once performed on I ignored her but Josh didn’t “Annie has had a bit of a drug problem that we are trying to get sorted so while she is out of commission we have all come home.”
Dana looked at me sadly “Annie honey I am so sorry that we have failed to stay in touch but things have been so crazy around here.”
Pulling away from Josh I walked over to the stage and jumped up and grabbed the mike “ladies and gentlemen my name is Annabelle Roberts the forgotten one and I am going to sing to you a song by nickel back called savin me.”
Prison gates won't open up for me
On these hands and knees I'm crawling'
Oh, I reach for you

Well I'm terrified of these four walls
These iron bars can't hold my soul in
All I need is you

Come please I'm calling'
And oh I scream for you
Hurry I'm falling', I'm falling'

Show me what it's like
To be the last one standing
And teach me wrong from right
And I'll show you what I can be

And say it for me, say it to me
And I'll leave this life behind me
Say it if it's worth saving me

Heaven's gates won't open up for me
With these broken wings I'm falling'
And all I see is you

These city walls ain't got no love for me
I'm on the ledge of the eighteenth story
And oh I scream for you
Come please I'm calling'
And all I need from you
Hurry I'm falling', I'm falling'

Show me what it's like
To be the last one standing
And teach me wrong from right
And I'll show you what I can be

And say it for me, say it to me
And I'll leave this life behind me
Say it if it's worth saving me
Hurry I'm falling'

And all I need is you
Come please I'm calling'
And oh I scream for you
Hurry I'm falling', I'm falling'

Show me what it's like
To be the last one standing
And teach me wrong from right
And I'll show you what I can be

And say it for me, say it to me
And I'll leave this life behind me
Say it if it's worth saving me
Hurry I'm falling'

And say it for me, say it to me
And I'll leave this life behind me
Say it if it's worth saving me.
Staring out at everyone through angry tears I spoke into the mike “people used to tell me that I would never be alone that they would always be here for me” I gave a harsh laugh “and like a fool I believed their lies, my boyfriend used to stare into my eyes after belting the shit out of me and say baby I promise I will never lay my hands on you again and like a fool I would believe him well you know what I am done being a fucking fool I am done being lied to” I gave another laugh this one breaking on a sob “you know what I am just plain done.”
Jumping of the stage I raced towards the door with tears blinding me but halfway there I hit a brick wall.
Cursing I started to get to my feet “that is just fucking great why don’t you just pull a fucking gun and shoot me already.”
Someone chuckled “its nice to see you to Annie” I groaned then looked up through my tears to see Nigel and the Morgan’s standing over me.
Grunting disgustedly I struggled to my feet “just great while I haven’t been here Larry has slacked of and hasn’t bothered to take out the trash.”
There was a hiss of outrage but so what I wasn’t feeling very apologetic at the moment.
Shoving past them I headed for the door yelling out to Josh “Josh move your fucking ass or I am going to steal your truck.”
Joshua rushed past the others muttering apologies before hurrying to my side “fuck Annie that was Nigel your brother you just ditched like that” I gave a careless shrug “really brother since when have I had one of them ha, where was he when I needed him where was he while I was laying in hospital after trying to kill myself where the fuck was this brother every time I needed him ha Josh?”
Josh swung me around and back towards the bar where my brother and the Morgan’s now stood with Dana talking in hushed voices “he is right there Annie he has been there all along you just wont let him be your brother hell you wont even let your friends help you.”
Pulling a smoke from my pocket I lit it while I watched my brother grab a glass of beer and down it “Nig wasn’t there that night when I killed Reece no one was, no one heard my screams as he cut my stomach open, no one heard me beg him not to kill our baby and no one heard my last words to him before I shoved the knife into his chest.”
Blinking to clear my eyes I turned my head to look at Josh “I wanted so badly to be a mother so I could have something that loved me for who I was but Reece took that away from me just like he took everything else and while I was bleeding to death he lent down and promised me again that he would never hurt me again, he was right because I picked up the knife he dropped and ended it all or so I thought but every damn night I lay in my bed alone and I again relive what he did and what those three men that kidnapped me did over and fucking over again so don’t stand there and pretend that you and my brother understand what I am going through and just want to help me because no one can.”
Lifting my shaking finger towards the bar I started to shout in my anger “that stage once was all I wanted it gave me something to ease the pain to make my life a little better but even that means nothing to me now the only thing that helps you are tying to take away from me.”
Everyone in the bar was now watching as Josh grabbed my shoulders and angrily shook me “you fucking bet I am trying to take it away from you for fuck sakes Annie you were doing cocaine and it put you in hospital because you nearly died” I gave a careless shrug “so what.”
He raised his hand but it was grabbed and yanked back down “touch her and I will kill you” Kane growled.
My brother pulled me away from Josh and into his arms “look mate you are angry so go home and get some sleep I will take care of my sister” Josh gave a tight nod then gave me an angry look before slamming out of the bar.
Nigel started to pull me towards the bar but I yanked away from him and started to walk out the door “I am nearly nineteen Nig I no longer need or wont your help.”
Someone grabbed my arm and dragged me out of the bar and towards a flashy looking four wheel drive “get your fucking hands off me” I shouted trying to fight them off “shut up Annie or so help me I will put you over my knee” Blake growled while pulling the door of the car open and practically throwing me inside.
Kane and Nigel joined him, Nigel got in the front while Kane got in the back but they all ignored me as they drove to god knows where.
Staring angrily out my window I cursed Josh for dragging me back here and back into the mob family.
Blake pulled into his uncle’s driveway and I was pulled out of the car and dragged towards the house.
Inside I pulled away from them and turned on them angrily “why the hell can’t you stay out of my life?” Nigel crossed his arms while being backed up by the Morgan’s “Annie you are using dangerous drugs you have given up your singing what the hell is going on with you?”
Turning away from them I looked towards the stairs as a young maid came down them with a small bundle in her arms “oh master Morgan you are home the little one still will not settle” I looked at the maid then the bundle in her arms and felt bitter tears fill my eyes as Kane pushed past me and took the small baby into his arms.
Nigel gave a sigh behind me “look Annie I know that you angry at the world right now but I am still your brother and I do love you and all I want to do is help you so please understand when I say that you are staying here and not leaving this house without one of us with you.”
Giving a nod I headed towards the stairs “Annie your room is the same one that you used the last time” I nodded at Blake’s words and kept going ignoring the pain I felt when I walked past Kane and his baby.
Standing in my old room with the door firmly closed I stood in the middle of the room and closed my eyes taking a deep breath.
I know you
Don't know what I'm going through
Standing here looking at you
Well let me tell you that it hurts so bad
It makes me feel so sad
It makes me hurt so bad to see you again
Like needles and pins
People say "you've been making out okay
He's in love don't stand in his way"
Well let me tell you that it hurts so bad
It makes me feel so sad
It's gonna hurt so bad if you walk away
Why don't you stay and let me make it up to you
I'll do anything you want me to
You loved me before please love me again
I can't let you go back to her
Please don't go
Please don't go
Please don't go
Please don't go
Hurt so bad
Come back it hurts so bad
Don't make it hurt so bad
I'm begging you please
Oooooh oh oh oh
Come back it hurts so bad
Come back it hurts so bad
I'm begging you please
Oh! No!
Noooooo!
Opening my eyes I wiped the tears away and walked to window and opened it then sat there breathing in the air and trying to forget the hurt I felt at seeing him with that baby and knowing that it was hers just like he was.
