Chapter 10: Me and my 'Drama'
Ronnie stepped in front of me. "Is there a problem?" He asked. Alex smiled a little. And that smile scared me. "So you are fucking someone else." He said. I shook my head. "And if she was?" Ronnie asked. Not an ounce of fear in his voice. "That's still my girl." Alex said. Anger was in his voice. I stepped away from Ronnie. "No, I'm not. I told you it was over." Alex shook his head. "It's not. You still belong to me."
"No she doesn't. She doesn't belong to anyone." Ronnie said. Alex walked over to him until they were face to face. "You need to stay the fuck out of this. This is between me and Leah." He turned and grabbed my arm. "Let me go!' I yelled.
"Let her go." Ronnie demanded. Alex looked over at his two friends and nodded once. Both of the guys looked at Ronnie and walked near him. "Watch." Alex demanded. One of the guys punched Ronnie in the face. "No!" I screamed as the one punched him again. "Make them stop!' I screamed at Alex. "No. You're going to watch this, Leah." Alex said grabbing my head and forcing me to look. Ronnie was now on the ground, clutching his stomach while the guys continued kicking him. Alex tightened his grip on my arm and threw me down on the ground. I landed on my stomach on the hard concrete. My knees had a stinging pain and I immediatley felt something wet on them. I knew it was blood. I turned over and looked at Ronnie. His eyes were looking straight at me as he laid on his stomach on the ground. "I'm sorry." I mouthed. He didn't answer. Instead he looked at Alex who stood above him. He grabbed a handful of Ronnie's hair and slammed his head into the ground. "No! Alex stop it!" I screamed. I tried to get up but Alex's friends stopped me. "You see that girl over there?" Alex asked Ronnie. Ronnie looked at me. "She's mine." Alex growled. Ronnie coughed up some blood. I closed my eyes because I couldn't stand seeing him in pain. "If you don't believe me, I'll prove it to you." Alex said as he walked over to me while unbuttoning his pants. My eyes widened. No. Please tell me he wasn't about to do this. Not in front of Ronnie. He already had to watch his mother go through it. "No! Alex, don't!" I screamed. Alex turned to his friends. "Go hold him down and make him watch." They nodded and went over to Ronnie. "No!" I tried to get up but Alex pushed me back down on my stomach. "Alex. Don't." I cried. But he didn't listen. I felt him lift my skirt up and pulled my panties down. Why was he doing this to me? What the fuck did I do? "Stop it!" I cried. He put all his weight on me and his lips were at my ear. "Remember when I said that I won't fuck your ass because you'll be sore afterwards?" I didn't answer. I just cried louder. "Well now, I don't give a fuck if it hurts or not." He whispered.
"Don't you fucking hurt her!" I heard Ronnie yell. I closed my eyes. Alex was going to do what he wanted, and I couldn't stop him. I felt his cock against my ass. The Alex I thought I loved............I fucking hate him. I felt something wet go inside of me and then I felt his cock push inside. It burned so badly. "Ahhhh!" I cried. He placed his hand over my mouth. I grabbed his hand with my hands and tried to pull it off of my mouth. He pushed all the way in. My whole body burned. I never cried so hard in my life. I stopped fighting. I couldn't anything but lay there. My body went back and forth against the hard rough concrete. But that was nothing compared to how much pain I felt as Alex kept pulling in and out of me. He groaned in my ear. I cried harder. I hated him. I did. So much. I had so much anger and pain filling my body. I felt something wet coming out of me. I gasped as he dug his nails into my waist and pounded in me harder. "Fuck, Leah. This is so good." He moaned. I looked into Ronnie's eyes and his eyes were watery. I saw tears falling down his cheeks. I closed my eyes. "Leah. Fuck! This so fucking unbelievable." He whispered. I couldn't have been wet. That had to be blood coming out of me. I can't believe this. This was not happening. It couldn't have been. "Please. Stop doing that to her." Ronnie begged. His voice was shaky.
Alex thrusted in me harder. Whimpers were escaping out of my mouth. "Does that feel good, Leah. Huh? Does it you fucking cunt?" I closed my eyes again. The pain was not ending. It just got worst with every thrust. I can't even explain how badly it hurts. But......what about the baby? What will it do to him or her? "Shit! I'm about to cum." Alex said.
He placed his hands on either side of my head, onto the concrete and I felt him go deeper inside of me. I kept my eyes on Ronnie. He was the only thing keeping me sane at this moment. Alex did one last rough thrust and I felt him cum in me. I closed my eyes. His breathing was heavy as he leaned down so his lips were at my ear. "That was fantastic." He whispered. I didn't respond. He got off of me and I heard him pull his pants up and zip them back up. He walked over to Ronnie. "Did you like the little show we just put on for you?" Alex asked. Ronnie glared at him. "She doesn't normally act like that, you know. I can't even count how many times she was under me, screaming my name." Alex smiled and looked back at me. "Isn't that right, Leah?" I got up slowly.
I heard Alex's footsteps come near me and he grabbed a fistful of my hair forcing me to look at him. He looked back at Alex and then let go of my hair. "I already told you something was going to happen if you started talking to some other guy but you didn't want to listen, did you?" I was on my knees trying to compose myself but it was going to take a while to take in everything that just happened. I suddenly saw Alex's shoe come near my face. My head slammed to the concrete hard. I placed my hand over my head and groaned in pain. Something wet was coming down my face. I could feel the blood. My head felt dizzy. I could hardly move. I saw Alex standing over me. "You want to watch me kill your boyfriend?" I moved my head and shook my head. The movement sent a sharp pain through my head. Alex smiled and walked towards Ronnie. "No!" I yelled and struggled to get up. I pulled my panties back up and limped to Alex and gripped his jacket. "No. Alex. Please." I begged. He turned around to me.
"I'll do anything. I swear. I'll even.......give you money. Please don't hurt him. Please." I begged. Alex narrowed his eyes. "Why should I leave him alone?"
"Because I'm the one who pissed you off. Please. Please just leave him alone. I'll do whatever you want, Alex. Please. I'll do anything." I whispered. Alex pushed me down on the ground and then looked at his friends. "Fine. I'm going to let my friends fuck you." Ronnie's eyes grew wide just like mine. "No. Leave her alone. You can beat me up. i don't give a shit." Alex looked down back and forth between me and Ronnie. "You two are........unbelievable." He shook his head and looked at the other guys. "Come on. " He said. They both looked down at me as they walked out of the park. "Come on, baby." Alex said holding out his hand for me. I scooted away from him. He dropped his hand. "Okay you fucking whore." He slapped me and a sharp pain appeared in my jaw. I Placed my hand against my cheek and looked up at Alex with tears swelling up in my eyes. He turned away from me and walked near Ronnie. Please don't hurt him. Please don't hurt him. Alex raised his foot back and kicked him in his stomach. Ronnie groaned and placed his hand on his stomach. "No. Don't." I said crawling towards them. Alex got down on his knees and repeatedly puched Ronnie. Ronnie placed his hand around Alex's neck and squeezed. "Stop it!" I yelled. Ronnie pushed Alex off of him. Alex got onto his feet and glared down at me. He slowly and silently walked away from us.
I slowly looked at Ronnie and he looked back at me. His nose and lip was bleeding. He slowly got up and walked over to me. His eyes never left mine. He placed his arms under my legs and picked me up bridal style. We didn't say a word to eachother. I didn't know where he was carrying me to and at this moment....I didn't care.
He brought me to a white one story house. He managed to unlock the door and hold me at the same time. We walked into the warm house and he sat me on the burgandy couch. I couldn't sit all the way. I felt sore. I sighed and looked up at him. "I'm so sorry." I whispered.
Ronnie shook his head and got down on his knees so that he was at eye level with me. "For what?" He asked.
"I should have stayed away from you. Alex warned me yesterday. He told me that if I got close to any other guy, he would......." I didn't finish my sentence. Ronnie placed his hand on my cheek. "Hey, I'm glad you didn't. I don't want you away from me. I need you with me." He whispered. I pulled him onto the couch with me. He wiped away my tears with his hand. He held out his hand and I placed mine in his and looked into his eyes. There was pain in them....but then I saw love. Did he feel for me the same love I felt for him? He stood up and made me stand up with him. He bent down and lifted me in his arms again.
He brought me to the bathroom and reached over to turn on the shower. He looked back at me and ran his fingers through my hair. "I want you to know that I will never let that happen again. No matter who is there holding me, I will keep that fucker away from you." His voice was calm but I saw the rage in his expression. I nodded and wrapped my arms around his neck. He held me tightly in his arms. I sighed after a few seconds and pulled back. "I know you must be sore. The shower would make you feel better." He assured me. "Thank you." I whispered. He nodded and rubbed his thumb against my cheek softly and left out of the room. Some part of me wanted him to stay in here with me. But another part was happy that I was alone. I got into the shower and let the hot water soothe me. I cried. Not only because of what Alex did to me. But also because I was happy, to have Ronnie. I wasn't completely traumatized by what happened. I mean the whole situation hurts to think about but Alex has done worst. But Ronnie having to watch is what hurted the most.
When I got out of the shower, there was a dark blue towel on the toilet. I grabbed it and wrapped it around my body. I looked in the mirror and saw bruises on my face. I sighed. How can Ronnie even look at me when I looked like this? I opened the door and smiled when I saw Ronnie. He was leaning against the wall and holding and Ice pack to his head. He looked at me. "You okay?" He asked. I nodded. He grabbed my hand and led me to a small room with a queen size bed in it. There was burgandy carpet on the floor. The walls were white and there were lamps on tables that was on the left and the right of the bed. "You can sleep in here. I'll sleep on the couch." I looked at him and shook my head. "No. I want you with me." I said. He wrapped his arm around my lower back and pulled me towards him. "You sure?" He asked. I nodded. I was more than sure. Beyond sure. He led me over to the bed and I crawled on it and laid down on the pillows. Ronnie crawled in next to me and laid down beside me staring at me. I turned my head to look into his blue eyes.
His eyes slowly trailed down my body and then back to my eyes. "You are so beautiful." He whispered. I placed my hand on the side of his face. "I have to tell you something." I whispered. He placed the ice pack that he had on the table beside the bed and turned back to me. I sat up -which hurted. "Remember when I told you that the test was negative?" I asked. "Yeah." He answered. I bit my lip for a second. "Well......it was actually positive." His eyebrows raised and he sat up. "Are you mad at me?" I asked. He looked into my eyes. "No. I mean I wish you would've told me the truth but no. I'm not mad."
"I'm sorry. I just thought that if you knew I was pregnant, that you would stop liking me." Ronnie leaned over and placed his lips against mine soflty. He pulled my body tight against his and his hands explored my body as his lips explored my mouth. He pulled back a little and looked into my eyes. "Nothing can make me stop liking you. Nothing." He whispered and then continued kissing me. He had to have seen that I was in love with him. I would never do this with just anyone.
"Are you still in pain?" He asked against my lips. "A little. You keep distracting me from it." I answered. He breathed deeply and pulled away a little. "You know what I don't understand?"
"What?" He wrapped both of his arms around me. "You don't seem traumatized by what happened." I sighed. "Well, this isnt the first time he's raped me, Ronnie."
"What?" He asked. "Alex has done alot of fucked up things. But this isn't the worst." I admitted. "Wait.....so you're use to being raped by him?" I slowly nodded. Alex sighed. "I can't believe this. You don't seem upset at all." I shook my head. "I don't want to talk about this right now. I just want to sleep." He hesitated at first but then nodded and lifted the covers and place them over us. I laid on his chest and soon fell asleep.
When I woke up, I was in the bed alone. I smelled bacon and sat up immediatley. I realized that I was still in a towel. I pulled on my shirt and my underwear and slipped my skirt on. Then I found my way to the kitchen and stood in the doorway as I found Ronnie shirtless flipping over some bacon that was in a silver skillet. He grabbed a fork and stirred something that was in a pot. "A guy that can cook. You don't see that everyday." I smiled. Ronnie turned and smiled at me. "You're finally woke." He said. I sat down at the chair that was by the table and stared at him. "I didn't know you can cook." I said resting my feet on the chair across from me. He turned the knob on the stove off and place the pieces of bacon on a plate that had paper towels on it. "I can do alot of things." He said looking at me. I blushed and looked down at the floor.
"So.... are you still in pain?" He asked. Not much. "Only a little." I said. He nodded and then poured something out of a pot onto a plate. He placed a couple pieces of bacon on the plate and grabbed some sugar and poured it in a small cup. He placed it on the plate and then walked over to me. He sat the plate down in front of me and kissed me on my forehead. I leaned my head up and his lips were on mine. He pulled away and smiled at me before stealing a piece of bacon from my plate. "Hey!" He chuckled and then turned to walk away. He placed another piece on my plate. Bacon, grits, and toast. perfection. He sat down across from me and began eating his food. He wasn't even half way done by the time I was. "Damn." He said looking at my clear plate. I laughed and stole his toast from his plate. "Oh right. I forgot. You're feeding for two." I nodded and took a bite out of the toast.
But then a certain thought came to my head. "Why are you okay with all of this?" I asked putting the leftover piece of toast on my plate. "All of what?" I didn't answer. Comprehension appeared on his face. "Because I care about you. You know that, Leah." I nodded. "Yeah but your life was fine just the way it was and then here I come with all of my drama." Ronnie shook his head. "No. My life wasn't fine. I'm glad you're here with all of your 'drama'. I want to help you." I sat back in my chair and stared at him out of fascination. "Why are you so perfect?" I asked. He chuckled and then took a bite of his grits. "I'm far from perfect." I shook my head. "I'm not convinced." He smiled and looked down at his food. His cheeks were kind of red. Was he blushing? So hot. "You're blushing." I accused. He didn't answer. He just smiled wider. " A guy that can blush and cook, doesn't get any better than that."
"What about a guy that know how to blush, cook, and fuck good?" I blushed. "I love that." He whispered. "Love what?" I asked looking into his blue eyes. "Seeing you blush. It's cute." He answered. I smiled at him and he smiled back. I got up with my plate in my hand and went over and dumped it in the sink. When I turned around, Ronnie was behind me looking down at me. His blue eyes looked into my green ones. He placed his hands on my waist and then leaned down and pressed his lips against mine. His hands lifted my skirt up and he picked me up and placed me on the counter. I was surprised by the sudden movement but continued kissing him anyway. I locked my legs around his waist and gripped his hair as our tongues fought eachother. I placed my arms around his neck as he began to kiss my neck.. His hands were still on my hips. Everything he was doing to me.......it sent shivers down my body. But it felt so good. "Oh. Ronnie." I moaned. "Say my name again." He whispered in my ear. He pressed himself against me harder and I felt his erection."Ronnie." I breathed. He crushed his lips against mine again. Much harder than before.
"I hope I'm not interupting anything." Said a voice. I jumped and Ronnie immediatley turned around. "Well, looks like you're busy, Ronnie." He said. The man had dark hair. Brown eyes and a scar on his neck. I hopped off of the counter and stood beside Ronnie. Ronnie slowly looked at me. "Um. This is my step dad, Jason." I slowly looked at Jason and he was smiling at me. "It's a pleasure to meet you." I said holding out my hand. He didn't shake it, he just looked back at Ronnie. "You should tell your little lady friend to go home. You have some work to do, Ronald." Jason slowly turned and then left out of the room. Ronnie sighed. "I told him to never call me that." I shrugged. "It's okay. I have to go anyway." I said about to walk away. He grabbed my arm and pulled me in for another kiss. His lips were so soft and delicious. "Don't go." He whispered. "I have to. You need to go to work, Ronald." He groaned. "You're funny." He said sarcastically. I giggled as I walked into the bedroom and grabbed my bra which I forgot to put on this morning and I grabbed my jewelry. I gave Ronnie one more kiss before walking out of the door. I didn't want to go home to face Nate but I really couldn't go to Katie's house and face Alex. Maybe he wasn't there. Only one way to find out.
I walked over to Katie's house and knocked on the door. I didn't have my key anymore. Katie answered the door. "Where have you been? I've been calling you and I went to your house." She said in a panicky tone. "I'm fine. I'll tell you where I was. I just need you to tell me if Alex is here or not." Katie shook her head. "No. He's gone. Why?" I bumped pass her and walked into the house. She closed the door and then looked at me. "Would you mind telling me what the hell is going on here?" I had to tell her. It was time. She had to know the truth about everything. "I'm going to tell you everything. But first.......you might want to sit down."
