I have no idea how I got home, I was sweating and my heart was beating so fast against my chest. 537Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡXIIKeKUi5b
My vision was blurred , and my mind was somewhere else as I was driving, But thank god I reached home anyway..
I got out of my car and ran towards my house, the main door was open so I got in, in a rush, I inhaled nervously as I saw the broken glasses ..
This can't be happening , but I knew already that it was happening .
I ran upstairs immediately, the door of Kristin's bedroom was open, I gulped . Then I made my way to her room, Her bed room was a mess, and what I saw stabbed my heart million times.
Kristin , was left naked on the floor. And the floor was bloody.
I was certain of one thing, which was Kyle has raped Kristin and left her naked on that damn cold floor.
I rushed to her naked body ,and carried her bride style to her bed,She was unconscious which made me worry about her even more.
I covered her with a warm blanket , and dialed Natalie's number.
I ran my hand nervously through my messy hair, Natalie seemed busy because she wasn't picking up her damn phone.
Just as when I was about to cuss, she picked up " Yes Richard" Natalie said.
And she was obviously annoyed , " Natalie , can you please come to my- our house ?"
"And why is that ?" She asked , I could feel her roll her eyes at me, but I knew this was not the right time for arguing , so I told her what has happened , She said she will come with Damon immdediately , I wasn't really happy to hear Damon's name but I had no choice .
I sat on the edge of Kristin's bed , She looked horrible, but she was still pretty, she had a lot of hickeys on her neck and arms,and her hair was a mess, I am such a jerk for being friend with Kyle.
I kissed Kristin's forehead, other than that I couldn't do anything else, I was speechless, I couldn't move either. It hurt so bad to see my best friend like this. Being raped my my other best friend, my fake best friend in fact.
I couldn't stare at Kristin any longer so I left her room and went downstairs to the living room.
I heard footsteps running, but I was too busy suffering ... I didn't give a damn about who it was, suddenly someone grabbed the collar of my shirt and made me stand up, I was looking at elsewhere so I didn't know it was.
"You bastard! What have you done to her ?" Damon's voice hurt me so bad, it was like a knife slicing my skin and everything else in my body specially my heart , I was shaking , but not from fear, it was from something else.. regret? yes... guilty?yes... in love?
My heart was racing as that word came into my mind, I bit my lip , and I could feel a tear rolling dow my cheek, Damon cared less, and punched me .
And god it hurt, My nose was bleeding , and I was sure that my cheek was swollen already. But I didn't stop him, I deserved this.
"You should have protected her! " Damon yelled at me, as he grabbed my shirt , and punched me again, I was on the floor wiping blood away from my nose and my lips.
"Damon stop it, this is not the right time for this " I heard Natalie say, Damon sighed in frustration and followed Natalie to Kristin's bedroom.
I went to my own room, and lay on my bed. I wanted to sleep but I couldn't , I sighed and cried.
I haven't cried since 9th grade? That means six years I think. Wow! I am such a coldhearted guy.
I sobbed silently and thought of every single thing I have done to Kristin, the way I asked her out just to prove I could get any girl, I black mailed Damon because I knew they loved each other, and I couldn't let that happen. I took pictures of her half naked and sent it to the entire school.
I have never been a good husband to her, And last but not the least I ruined her lovelife and her first kiss, And I have hurt her so many times that I think I will not be able to count.
I have no idea why I am crying now, Is it because I know this is my fault? or is it because I wasn't able to stop that bastard from hurting her? or it might be because I am in love with her?
I was not sure myself, I felt a million emotions at the moment, and one of them was being angry , I wanted to rip Kyle's throat and kill him with my own hands.
But right now I need to know if Kristin is okay. I heard footsteps coming downstairs, in case I have not mentioned , my room is downstairs.
I was hundred percent sure it was Natalie, I wiped my face and got out of my room, Natalie was sobbing and Damon was murmuring things to her that I couldn't hear.
panick.. that was the only thing that I felt at the moment, I ran to Kristin's room and opened the door carefully, She was sitting on her bed hugging her knees , I was so worried that I didn't make a sound when I walked towards her.
I sat on Kristin's bed without making a sound because I didn't want to scare her, I stared at her for a moment. She was looking at something , I turned around to see what she was staring at, then I realized she was thinking...
I waited and waited for her to talk, or sob or yell at me for leaving her alone this morning, bu she didn't make a sound , she didn't say a word. She just stood there silent ,in her own world.
I couldn't just stare at her, so I patted her hand that was hugging her knees , She stared at me with shock and screamed .
"Get away from me !" Kristin shouted and screamed , as she was trying to push me away from her. Guess this was what Natalie was crying about.
I grabbed her wrists and tried to calm her "Kristin ! look at me " I said as calmly as I could.
Kristin was still trying to hit me and push me away from her, But I didn't give up.
"Kristin it's me Richard ,calm down please !" I begged her and patted her shoulder while holding her wrists tightly with my other hand.
Kristin was crying and shouting the exact same words at me, that she said earlier .
I grabbed her wrists tighter , and pushed her a little , so that I was on top of her now, She couldn't move.
"Kristin , it's me Richard I won't hurt you " I told her calmly. But there was no hope , she was no hope .
" Kristin please ! "
"I won't hurt you , promise , I am your best friend , remember my promise? "
What I told her made her freeze, her eyes were wide opened and her cheeks were wet from tears.
This is it I have to go on talking " Remember I told you I will always protect you no matter what ?"
Kristin was staring in to my eyes, her nice brown eyes killed me every time she stared at me like that. I really wish she trusts me ...
I heard Damon and Natalie's footsteps , Guess they heard Kristin's screams, Natalie gasped when she saw us like that. But she didn't say a word neither did Damon, they just stared and listened.
"I ... do " Kristin murmured , then she smiled sadly at me " Richard , I am screwed . I feel terrible "
I hugged her tight , thank god , she looks better , she smelled so good ,so I inhaled her smell and planted a kiss on her forehead .
" I promise I will take care of you more than I did before from today on " I whispered in ears.
Kristin sighed and rested her head on my chest, we were laying on the bed comfortably, Natalie and Damon sat on the other side of the bed , beside Kristin , She told them she feels much better now.
And I will never be able to forget the way Damon was staring at Kristin, He looked horrible. And I don't blame him , If I ever fall in love with a girl , I would feel the same way.
Now that we mention love... I don't even know what love is, My Mum once told me there are two types of love , first is love, you can forget easily.. maybe it just needs a month or two.. The other type is Great love , or TRUE love ,it can't be forgotten easily and it changes your entire life.
If I am in love .. then which one is it I have no idea ..
Natalie said something about food and left the room, Damon kissed Kristin's cheeks and followed Natalie, leaving me and Kristin alone , with her resting her head on my chest, and me patting her back .
I stared at Kristin, she turned her head towards my face and stared at me too " Thank you , for everything " She whispered , I felt a shiver travel down my spine, I could feel butterflies or I rather call them insects kicking my abdomen and stomach. And I fel my beat faster , As I was staring at Kristin's eyes . I was speechless , or maybe I have just lost the courage to speak, maybe I was afraid of saying something stupid, and embaress myself.
So I just nodded and smiled at her, she smiled weakly and turned back to her previous position, After fifteen minutes , I heard Kristin's relaxed breathing which mad e me sigh in relief .
Kristin, I am in love with you... And I am afraid It is GREAT Love !ns 22.214.171.124da2
