………………. I looked across the water and watched as a boat drove by. I’d gone this far with the story I might as well go the whole way so I could leave and let Dimitri get back to his friends.
“Chris” his voice was soft no hint of an accent.
“The summer before we started junior year his dad lost his job and his mom was caught cheating and I guess Arron and his brother took the brunt of it” I ran my hand through my hair “but a lot of
people were going through the same thing with parents being laid off and they just dealt with it. Well like Niko” I smiled a little “Arron has the emotional capability of a teaspoon” I heard and
chuckled from Dimitri.
“I’ll have to remember that one” I turned to face him
“One night I was tired and stressed over the play that was coming up we were going balls to the wall with rehearsals and I wasn’t seeing Arron as much as he thought I should. He thought the play
should come second to what he wanted. So the one thing he asked was to be the one to take me home after rehearsal, which was fine but all he wanted to do was go park on his Dad’s hunting land and…”
I looked down.
“Did he force you to have sex?” the accent was back along with the angry tone my eyes locked with Dimitri’s and I shook my head.
“No… well not as such some night I didn’t feel like it but he’d grabbed me round the throat a couple of times telling me it wasn’t his fault I was tired…” I trailed off and groaned and I realized
for the first time I had been forced into it.
“I’m sorry Chris but in my books that’s rape” Dimitri stepped closer to me “He had no right to treat you like that” I took a step back and shook my head.
“That’s not what…”
“There’s more?” he spluttered. I nodded
“By the time it got to thanksgiving and the play was done Arron was getting worse with the slaps” I absently rubbed my fingers over the scar on the inside of my wrist. Dimitri narrowed my eyes “I
started to get sick to the point of not being able to get out of bed in the morning, Brittany insisted on taking me to the doctor and they ran some test” I felt sick right now actual beginning to
talk about it “I was anemic”
“So they give you iron pills right”
“Yeah” I nodded “But… oh god” I crouched down “I can’t do this”
“Yes you can” Dimitri culled me back to my feet “Chris you’ve gone this far” I was shaking.
“They also found out I was pregnant” I looked at him.
“He’d got you…”
“Well I wasn’t sleeping with anyone else” I snapped a little too fast
“I’m sorry I didn’t mean it like that” he still had hold of me.
“I know” I took a deep breath “you want to hear the rest?”
“More?” he groaned.
“Well do you see a baby” I laughed a little hysterically he dropped his head “When I went to school I told Arron I needed to talk to him so we skipped school and went to his house he thought it was
an excuse to get naked in the middle of the day” I sniffed “but I told him no and he got mad and slapped me hard enough to break a tooth” Dimitri looked back at me “so I blurted out that I was
having his damn kid… he accused me of sleeping round on him… but then he realized there wasn’t enough hours in my day to do everything I was doing and have sex with someone else” Dimitri reached
his hand up and tucked my hair back behind my ear “so he told me it was my fault I should have taken precautions he just wanted someone to screw and he wasn’t going to take responsibility for my
mistake, so I slapped him” Dimitri raised his eye brows “he punched me in the stomach and pushed me through a glass door”
“Is that where this came from” he lifted my arm and rubbed his thumb over my scar I nodded.
“Yeah… I have a few more but nothing to serious” I shrugged “Arron stormed off leaving me bleeding on the floor, I called Brittany we’ve been friends since we were 7 she took me to the E.R. but I
was already bleeding and I’m not talking about the cuts”
“You miscarried?” I nodded “Where were your parents?”
“Working… Mom was I can’t remember where promoting a book Dad was stressing about some football game”
“But the bill”
“My dad knows some of it I had to lie a little and say I fell into the glass and the tooth was an accident” I couldn’t stop the tears from coming now “the only one that knew it all was Brittany
three days after it happened he turned up at her house to” I did quote marks in the air “talk about me” I shook my head “They ended up in bed together and then I find out that while I was
rehearsing they were fooling round every chance they got… my best friend and my boyfriend and I never knew”
“And this guy thinks he can come back into your life”
“I’ll go you have a party” I walked by him how I don’t know my legs were like jello. I’d opened my heart and poured it all out there was no taking back anything Dimitri knew it all.
“Chris stop” he caught up to me and pulled me to him “You’re not going anywhere not with out me”………………….
