*A/N: Heya! Yeah, I am in a major updating mood! I finished everything for the day and I went, what the hell, I will write chapter two! Well, here it is! It may be short and I am sorry! Its already starting to get pretty hot! Comment and have a lovely day my loves :D*
I followed Carson to the café where we are going to eat. As I stared at Carson, I wanted him more and more. Where is this lust coming from? I never actually WANTED Chris since I lost my virginity to him. It feels kind of strange and wonderful at the same time. My lower belly is tingling and it radiates down to my toes and to my pussy, which is now getting wet and hot. I swallowed and Carson waited on me by his truck and we walked into the little café. We live in a small town known as Gaffney, which is not that far away from Greenville and Spartanburg. It has a couple car dealerships and a pretty big high school, but its not no city. We sat down and we gave the waitress our drink orders and I hid behind the menu. If I want to impress a trainer like Carson, I have to get something healthy, even though a chili cheese hot dog with chili cheese tater tots is sounding VERY good right now.
"What can I get y'all?" The waitress said holding her pad of
"I will get a hamburger with slaw and chili with a larger order
of French fries, please," Carson said and my eyes grew. He
laughed and smiled at me. "I am not your average trainer, I love
my chili!" he said.
"Then I will have the chili cheese hot dog with chili cheese
tater tots please," I said and he laughed louder. The waitress
just smiled, grabbed our menus and left. We sat there at the
table, being awkwardly quiet and I lay my arm down, not noticing
the big bruise on my forearm where Chris hit me. I looked down
and I jerked it away after I realized what arm it was and hid it
from Carson. It's too late, Carson seen it.
"What happen to your arm, Tawny?" Carson asked me.
"Um, it's nothing to get hasty about, just a bruise," I said and
he rolled his eyes.
"Looks like someone beat the living shit out of you. I can tell
that you had a black eye from the yellowish discoloration around
your eye and your cheek is bruised as well." I touched my left
eye and fucking forgot about it. Damn, there is no way out of
"I…was in an abusive relationship for three years. I was with the
man for five years and the first two years was good. It was after
my high school graduation when it started. It was just slaps and
verbal abuse, then it got very physical. We broke up a few months
back and he found me a few days ago and tried to really hurt me,
probably kill me. I protected my face with my arm…" I lifted my
bruised arm to show him. "And he ran off after he thought I went
unconscious. I was semi-conscious because I barely remember
anything. I remember Reggie finding me. I remembered being
carried to the ambulance and going to the hospital. I put a
restraining order out on him, and Reggie signed us up for the
fitness program at the gym. Its really for me to learn how to
defend myself, but she said she has not done any fitness since
high school, so she needs to shape up." I stared into Carson's
gray eyes and I sense anger in them and he didn't say a single
word to me or anything about the situation. The waitress came
back with our food and he grabbed it and almost tossing it to the
floor and we ate. I tried to eat slow but Carson is eating like a
mad man and it is scaring me.
"Carson, you're scaring me," I said and he stopped. His eyes
lighten up and he reached over and grabbed my hand.
"I am so sorry, I just pissed about your ex beating you. Why did
you stay for the abuse for three years? Why didn't you leave
before it got worse?" Carson said and I jerked my hand away and
looked away from him. That is a question I ask myself everyday.
Why did I stay and let him beat me? I thought I was in love with
him, but it ended up turning into fear, so I cannot use "I loved
"I don't know, fear? I thought I was in love with him, but I
wasn't. I think I was too scared to leave because something like
what happened to me a few days ago could happen," I said and he
"Usually women that dealt with abuse use the 'I love him' excuse,
but you didn't. You right out admitted that you feared him,"
Carson said and took a huge bite out of his hamburger and I
watched the slaw and chili fall out of his bun.
"I think the women that use that excuse is hiding the fact that
they are afraid to leave."
"You left and went on with life, was that encounter a few days
ago the only encounter since y'all broke up?"
"Yeah, he text me a few times after we broke up claming that he
loves me and he will never hurt me again if I just come back. I
knew that was a lie and I am not fucking stupid." Carson quit
talking about Chris and we finished eating and he paid for our
food. When we got back to the parking lot, he asked for my cell
phone number and of course, I gave it to him. He smiled and he
left. For some reason, I wanted him to hold me and kiss me. I
never had a man kiss me romantically or actually kiss me in three
years. Since that day that started the abuse, Chris forced me to
kiss him. He forced me to do everything. Maybe Carson will help
me start fresh with me. I drove back to my apartment and I heard
the little chime from my cat's, Missy, collar. She is a calico
cat and she always greets me at the door.
"Hey Missy, miss me huh?" I said to my cat and she just rubbed
her head against my legs. I went to the kitchen and poured her
some fresh water and food into her dish and my cell phone is
already ringing. I looked and it's Reggie.
"So, what did you and Carson do?" Reggie said and I sighed.
"Just ate some lunch and talked," I said and she whined.
"I thought y'all were gonna go fuck or something, at least you
are starting off good."
"Yeah, he didn't even kiss me. He just smiled and gave me his
number and left. He is a gentleman!"
"Bailey wants to go bar hopping with me tonight and I am going,
so I called to tell you good night."
"Call me when you get home or wherever you are staying tonight so
I know you are safe." Reggie just turned twenty-one last month,
so she gets to go bar hopping, I won't be able to for another
"Bah, who died and made you my big sister?" I laughed and told
her to call me, which she will. When I got off the phone, I
grabbed a water bottle and sat down in front of my television. I
looked around in my apartment of three months and smiled. If it
wasn't for Reggie and my mother, I would not have gotten it.
Reggie works for a real estate company and she sold the complex
to a friend of hers and she made her give me a discount on the
security deposit. I already had a job at the café, so I can make
the payments. Missy jumped on the couch and lay in my lap and I
ran my fingers though her soft fur. Missy is a gift from Reggie
because I became lonely in my apartment within a week, so she got
me Missy. I grabbed my phone and looked through my contacts and
seen Carson's number.
"Should I call him, Missy?" I asked my cat and she just meowed at
me and I smiled. I took that as a yes and called him. He picked
up and I heard some rock music in the background and a bunch of
"Hello?" Carson answered.
"Uh, hey, it's Tawny, I called to say hey," I said shyly and I
heard him tell those guys something and the background got
"Tawny, calling so soon?" He said and I laughed.
"Well, Reggie and Bailey are going out tonight and I have nothing
to do, so I called you," I said.
"How about you come over to my place and hang with me and my
friends and their girls? it's a lot of fun and free beer!"
"I never drank a beer in my life!"
"For some reason, I believe you." I laughed and told him to give
me his address. Its an excuse to see him again and I really
wanted to see him. He gave me his address, which is just a mile
away from my place and I left. I drove over to the address and a
pile of cars is in the driveway and I seen Carson's truck. I got
out of the car and walked up to the porch and Carson is standing
there, talking to some guys and when he seen me, he smiled and
left the group.
"I am glad to see you here!" Carson said and I just smiled and
gave him my hand when he lend me his hand. He lead me to the
group he talked to and the girls that has their arms around their
men looked at me. I am not quite a looker, but they should not
stare at me like that.
"This is Tawny Dawson, she is my new trainee," Carson said and I
smiled. They all said hey and I just walked inside, behind
Carson. He took me to the kitchen and handed me a Budweiser from
"Come on, open it!" He said and I laughed as I opened the
"Are you trying to get me drunk so I will have sex with you?" I
joked and he wrapped his arm around my shoulders.
"I hope it doesn't take for you to get drunk for us to have
"Same here." Did we just expressed our sudden feeling to each other? Does he want to have sex with me also? I wonder…
