Back to THAT night
Things were going better then I had expected. We had all quickly realised some things about Bella though.
1 she was not a morning person.
2 she was generally a kind and loving girl but:
3 you did not want to make her angry, (although her Aussie accent got 10 times stronger when she was mad, and ill admit, its pretty damn hot, it's not worth her being mad at you coz when she's mad, she's MAD), Niall learnt this the hard way, I'm not gonna say how..
4 she is the opposite of Niall in eating habits, not saying shes anorexic or anything but you can tell she restricts her food intake. and....
5 she avoided talking about family and past.
After a few days we gave up bringing it up as she always became quiet or mad when we pushed it. Bella had developed great relationships with everyone. We always had our little sass fights that ended with open jaws or fits of laughter. Zayn had become really close with her, acting somewhat like an older brother around her. Liam was also acting like a brother, but in a softer kind of way, like she was fragile. Niall was loving getting to see her again after being apart for so many years.
Harry, well that was a different story. After the 2 days of no-eye contact and weird awkwardness Bella and him had actually become pretty close. They were like best friends. Always smiling and hugging and stuff. But when she wasn't looking I saw something in Harry's eyes, I knew he didn't just think of her as a friend. She was definitely somthing more to him. Still, I didn't know how much more she was. We had continued our routine of having dinner and watching a movie every night. Tonight Bella had finally let us watch a horror movie, but (as she had warned us) she spent the whole time with her head burried in Harry's chest barely watching, not that he was complaining. We all said our goodnights afterwards and went back to our rooms.
I think the boys now understood why I was so hesitant to watch horror movies. I didn't even really get freaked out by them. But I can't stand the suspense. I hated just waiting for something to happen so I never fully watched with my eyes wide open. I laughed and shook my head as I remembered how Harry's whole body had stiffened when I first clung onto him. After about ten minutes we were practically cuddling and stayed like that the rest of the movie. I smiled and got into bed, drifting off to sleep.
Only to be taken back to that night.
I walked along the streets in the direction of the apartment complex. I had stayed out later than expected and got really paranoid when I was out by myself like this. I scolded myself, saying that I would be fine and I was being stupid. Suddenly he stepped in front of me. I froze. He smirked.
"Haven't seen you in a while," My breath was getting rapid and before I knew it he had pulled me into an alley way and had me pressed up against a wall.
"Ky" I stuttered. "P-please just leave me. I swear I won't tell anyone I saw you just please go away" I felt the tears coming already. He just laughed.
"Babe I'm not letting you go again," he roughly pressed his lips to mine. I tryed to pull away and screamed. Quicker than I had ever seen him he brought his fist back and hit me so hard I fell to the ground. "You better not scream again, you don't do anything unless I tell you to," he hissed. I felt tears streaming down my face. He pulled me back up only to throw me to the ground again.
"Please" I whispered. His face turned into a twisted grin as he started to hit me again.
I had laid in bed for a while wide awake. That movie was fucking intense. I didn't blame Bella for not wanting to watch it, though I guess she wasn't really saying no to the movie because she was freaked out by it.....sorta....I'm confusing myself. Suddenly I heard rustling and gasps. Immediately I jumped out of bed, pulled on some shorts and left my room. The noise was coming from Bellas room. I ran in there and saw her thrashing on her bed. She was crying and whimpering in her sleep. Straight away I was at her side softly shaking her to make her wake up. Her eyes flew open and she jolted upright, only just missing smashing my face. She was still breathing heavily. She burried her face in her hands and started sobbing. On instinct, I wrapped my arms around her, whispering that it would all be ok, although I wasn't sure it would be. Surely that couldn't have just been some simple nightmare or she wouldnt have been reacting like this. She cried for about ten minutes before pulling away from me and looking into my eyes.
"Bella," I started. "What happened," she just shook her head as more tears fell. I wiped them away with my thumb and pulled her back into me, laying down on her bed while she quietly sobbed and shook in my arms. I waited until she had fallen asleep in my arms before quietly heading back to my room leaving a note askin if she was ok and saying that I was just a wall away if she needs anything. I would have stayed with her but I didn't need any of the guys questions in the morning. I had a feeling this was something she would not want to talk about. I didn't sleep for the rest of the night. How could I with all these questions flying though my head. What was that dream about? Why didnt she tell me? Was it some sort of flashback? But of what? All I knew is that it would have to wait till morning.
Unfortunately, morning didnt come as quickly as I had expected. It was already 12 and Bella had shown no signs that she was up. We were all too scared to wake her. 3 of her friends were coming over at 2 so I knew we wouldn't have much time to talk. At 1:10 she stormed out of her room.
"Why the hell didnt anyone wake me!?" She demanded, her features hard and angry. We all opened and closed our mouths, trying to figure out the right answer.
"I have 45 minutes to shower get dressed, eat, finish off a bunch of University shit and no doubt Eliza will be early coz she always is! Did it ever cross any of your tiny minds that maybe you should have woken me!?" Once again no one said anything. She made an exasperated noise and went beck to her bedroom, slamming the door. A few minutes later we heard he shower turn on.
Hi! I now not much really happened in this chapter but the next is more interesting. Not many people read my fanfic but I decided to post another chapter anyway in the hopes that some people might read it. Love you xoxox
