Chapter 6: Broken
My heart was beating fast. There were so many things going through my head. For one: How the hell didn’t we hear her coming upstairs? I stared at Carsia and I saw her eyes water. Alex got up and went to her. "Carsia, I’m sorry." He said. She slapped him really hard. I actually heard it. I thought at first he was going to hit her back. That's what he would have done to me. Carsia glanced at me before leaving. "Fuck." Alex said as he turned to get his pants and run out of the door. "Carsia!" I heard him call her. Who am I kidding? We had this coming. Unexpected tears fell out of my eyes. Why did I start this with him knowing he was with Carsia? I grabbed my towel and placed it around my body and then went into Katie’s room and laid down in her bed. I cried myself to sleep that night.
My night mare was too real. Nate’s hands rubbing up my body. My screams and cries being muffled to the point where no one could hear me. My body bruised and bloody. And Nate forcing himself in me while holding me down. I sat up quickly and panted fast. My eyes adjusted to the dark room. It was just a dream. Well……..a nightmare. I looked over and Katie was beside me sleeping. I sighed and wiped the small amount of sweat from my forehead. I walked downstairs and stopped when I looked in the living room. Alex was sitting on the floor against the couch. Carsia was lying on his chest with her arm wrapped around him. Alex looked over at me. We just stared at each other. Only saying things with our eyes. Once he turned away from me, I walked away and into the kitchen. I grabbed a glass and filled it with water and drunk the whole thing. I walked back upstairs without looking at him and went back to bed.
When I woke up the next morning, I felt something heavy on top of me. I opened my eyes and was looking up at Alex. I gasped. "Shh." He whispered as he put his hand over my mouth. "What are you doing?" My question was muffled. "Carsia is still sleep and I want a quickie before you go to school." He took his hand away and started kissing my neck. "No. Not if Carsia is down stairs." He pinned my hands to the bed and continued kissing me anyway. Fucking prick. The fact that I couldn't move gave me bad memories. Memories of the other day. Nate. I bit his lip. He stopped kissing me. "Why would you do that?" He asked. I couldn't answer. My eyes watered. This scene was too familiar. "Please. Stop." I begged. Alex shook his head. "No." He answered and then placed his lips against mine again. "Get off of me!" I yelled. We heard footsteps coming upstairs and Alex immediatley got off of me. "Leah?" Katie asked as she walked in. I sat up and wiped my tears away. Katie pulled her eyebrows together and then looked at Alex. "What did you do?" She asked. "I didn't do anything to her."
"She's crying, Alex. She wouldn't cry for no reason." Katie retorted. "What did you do?" She asked again. He shook his head. "I didn't fucking touch her." He said. He looked at me. "Did I?" Katie looked at me waiting for my answer. "N-No. You didn't." I answered. Alex smiled and looked at Katie. Katie sighed and her forehead creased. "I'm sorry for accusing you."
Alex walked toward the door and bumped her as he walked out. Her eyes darted to mine. "Why are you crying?" She asked. I shook my head. "Bad dream." I was somewhat telling the truth. Katie sat on the bed with me and looking at my face. "What happened tp your face?" She asked. I looked down at the sheet I was covered with.
"Did Nate do it?" She asked. I looked up at her. Her jaw dropped. "He hit you?!"
"Shh!" I said. Katie's eyes widened. "Oh my.....why did he-?
"I don't know." I answered honestly. She sighed and put her arms around me. This is why I loved Katie. She comforted whenever I needed it. I mean she could be having a heart attack and will still comfort me with as much love as possible.
Katie pulled away and wiped a falling tear off of my face with her thumb. "Come on. Get ready. Make-up could hide the bruises." She guaranteed. I smiled and got up.
I took a shower, put on some of Katie's clothes and Katie did my hair and makeup. She smiled at me when she was done. "Beyond beautiful." She said. I looked in the mirror. I loved my hair. Normally it was just straight and stopped at breast. But now it was curly and slightly shorter. I wasn't a mascara person but I loved the way it looked on me. The bruises were covered but not completely. "I'll be back. You nee hairspray." Katie said as she left out the bathroom
Alex walked in and leaned against the wall. I tensed up when I felt him brush my cheek with his finger. He leaned down so that he was almost at eye level with me as I sat on the chair that was in front of Katie's mirror. "You look so beautiful." He whispered. I stared at him. This was the Alex I loved but I knew he would disappear soon. "I want to apologize for earlier. I wasn't going to rape you, Leah. You know that right?"
"What were you going to do then?" I asked with tears glistening in my eyes. He wiped them away as they rolled down my cheek. "If you wouldn't have been fighting it, then we could have been having sex. But.....you were acting craz-"
"You're the one who was on top of me when I woke up. You were holding me down so of course I thought you were going to rape me."
Alex shook his head. "No. I wouldn't do that to you." Bullshit. I nodded at him though. His lips kissed my forehead and then he left. I hate to love him. I really do. I sighed and placed a silver bobby pin into my hair.
I saw Carsia standing in the doorway through the mirror. I gasped and turned around to look at her. She was glaring at me. "C-Carsia, I'm so so sorry." I whispered.
"Are you?" She asked. She stared at me for a long moment before walking away. She was pissed and she had every right to be.
Me,Katie and Carsia all went to school together. No one talked to anyone. I believe Katie wasn't talking to neither one of us because she felt it was tense between us.
I wasn't popular at school at all but I always had Katie by my side. The only reason Carsia was popular was because eveyone knew she was with Alex and Alex was beyond popular in highschool.
When it was almost time to go home, I went into the girl's bathroom. I was in there alone. I fixed my make-up as much as I could and used my fingers to comb through my hair. I suddenly saw Carsia in the mirror. I gasped and turned. "Stop doing that." I said. She walked near me and had something white in her hand. I was scared at first. There was no telling what she was about to do.
She dropped it on the floor and walked out of the room. I bent down and picked it up. It was a pregnancy test and the words 'positive' was on it. I dropped it on the floor. Oh my god. She's pregnant and the father of her child is cheating on her........with me.
What if I was pregnant too? I haven't had any symptoms but that meant nothing. I wanted to have Alex's baby but......Carsia was going to have it. And that both angered and terrified me. I wonder if he knows about it yet.
That ride home.....So awkward. Alex was in the front along with Katie and Carsia was in the backseat with me. "Alex?" Carsia asked. He looked back at her. "What?" He asked. "I uh....I have to talk to you when we get home." Only two out of four people in this car know what it'll be about. "Okay." Alex answered. Carsia looked over at me and I looked back at her.
Katie went to study over her boyfriend's house and Alex, me and Carsia was back at the house. I heard them go upstairs to Alex's room and close the door. I went into Katie's room and laid down in her bed. I didn't realize I drifted off to sleep. I heard a huge thud coming from Alex's room. I gasped and got up. The sound made my heart beat fast. I opened Katie's door all the way and looked down onto the hallway floor. I saw blood seeping out from under Alex's door.
