Chapter 14: Shouldn't have happened
Logan got up immediately and pulled his clothes on. "Where are you going?"
"Where do you think?" He said in a sharp tone.
"I just thought you should know. I didn't want to start a fight between you and him."
"Too fucking late for that." He unlocked the door and forced it open. I hurriedly grabbed my clothes and put them on and ran down the stairs after him.
I ran after him and Logan called Lance's name. Lance turned around and as soon as he did, Logan punched him really hard in the face. Lance fell off the stairs onto the ground.
"Logan! Stop it!" I yelled. Logan stared down at Lance whose nose was bloody. Andy got out of the car and held Logan back. Lance slowly got up holding his nose.
"You don't ever fucking touch her again!" Logan growled. Lance glanced at me and took his hand from his nose. "You don't have control over her."
"Lance. Just leave, man." Andy said. Lance took out a cigarette and lit it up. He was pretty fucking bold to be smoking although Logan just gave him a bloody nose.
"I'm leaving," He said turning around and walking towards his car. He stopped and turned around to look at me. "Catch you later, Beth." He winked at me and smiled as he glanced at Logan and then went to his car.
Logan sighed and Andy went to stand by Alicia who looked shocked by what just happened. "What the hell?"
Logan walked passed me, went back in the house and slammed the door shut.
Alicia looked at me. "What the hell was that about?" She asked.
"Lance kissed me." I said quietly. Alicia rolled his eyes. "He's such a prick."
"No. He kissing you against your will is not okay, Bethany." Andy said.
"It's not like he raped me or anything. It's not a big deal." I said.
"Did you want it?" Alicia asked.
"No." I answered.
"Did you ask for it?" She asked.
"Did you…..like it?"
I bit my lip and shook my head.
"Say you didn't like it, Beth."
"I….did not like, want, or ask for it."
"Then it is a big deal. He assaulted you."
"He did not."
"If it's not such a big deal, why did you tell Logan?" She asked.
"Because he's my boyfriend and he deserved to know."
"So you're not pissed off at Lance?"
"I understand why he did what he did." I said. Alicia sighed. "So you're not pissed?" She asked. I shook my head.
"Okay, Beth. I'm going to go. Come on Andy." She said. Andy followed her to his car and started it up. I went back into Logan's house and heard noise downstairs as I went into the basement. Logan was closing the drawer of a white table and he had a bottle of alcohol in his hand.
"What are you doing?"
"I need to think."
"I need a new guitarist. Lance is not going to work."
"What do you mean? Logan, the kiss was innocent. I just told you because I know you would want to know."
"Did he do anything else to you?" He asked.
"Are you sure? He didn't touch you or anything?"
"No. No. He didn't. I swear." I said. Logan sighed and sat down. I slowly managed to take the bottle out of his hands. He watched me as I sat it down on the floor. "You don't need that." I said. He looked into my eyes and sighed. "Actually, I think I do." He reached for it but I grabbed his hand.
"Your ex told me about your drinking problem." I admitted. He stared at me and stopped reaching. His eyes went to the floor. "I'm pretty sure she wouldn't just tell you that out of the blue. Did you ask her?" He asked. I slowly nodded. He leaned back against the couch and closed his eyes.
"I had an aunt. Her name was Gennia. She use to drink every day. Every single day. My mother wouldn't allow her around me or near the house at all. My mother hated her guts. One day Gennia checked into rehab and her first day there, she died." I said. Logan's eyes opened and he looked at me.
"I love you too much to let that same thing happen to you, Logan." Logan grabbed my hand and intertwined our fingers together and looked me in my eyes as he leaned forward so we're barely an inch apart. "You will never lose me." He whispered. I nodded as his thumb brushed across my cheek.
"Do you love me?" I asked. He nodded and placed a kiss on my forehead.
"The let Lance stay in the band."
"I can't. He betrayed me."
"I heard that you betrayed him plenty of times."
"That. No. That's different. All of his girls threw themselves at me." Logan said.
"Yeah and you let them."
"Why do I have the feeling you're on Lance's side. Do you like him?" He asked staring into my eyes. I shook my head. "No. No. I love you. You know that. I just think you're being too harsh on him. I mean yes it was wrong for him to do what he did but I don't really blame him. At least he can come out and admit how he feels for me. A lot of guys have issues with that."
"It was still wrong. I don't trust him, Beth. I want you to stay away from him." Logan said.
"He's not your enemy, Logan."
"He is now."
