Ok again sorry I keep taking ages to update. It will be easier now I've got my own netbook. If you rate and review then I will love you forever ^-^
Dan came home a few days after the night he found out about me and Cassie. He told me how disgusted he was with me. Said he needed time to clear his head. Well, actually he just screamed at me that he wanted to get as far away from me as possible. That I was sick and twisted for what I had done to Cassie… That he hated me… I tried explaining that it wasn’t like how he pictured it to be, but it was no good. Dan was too stubborn and unwilling to believe I genuinely had feelings for Cassie, that I really did love her. He told me that she had gone to see him, but he just assumed that I was getting her to defend me again. Dan continued shouting at me while packing a bag and then he left without another word. I expected him to be gone for 3 or 4 days.
A month later and I still hadn’t heard from Dan.
Cassie and I had tried phoning and texting him too many times to count, but still he ignored us. What he expected to gain from avoiding us, I had no idea. All it meant was that we couldn’t fix things. Although our secret was out and we didn’t have to hide anymore, Cassie and I were spending less time together. She was still upset over what Dan had said about her. The few times I did see Cassie were at her apartment. She rarely left the building, except to go to the job she had gotten in a music shop. I would find her sitting on the couch or on her bed, her eyes rimmed red. Most of our time together, involved Cassie falling against me, my arms wrapped around her and me occasionally kissing the top of her head. This seems like a perfect moment. It would be if Cassie wasn’t shaking violently from her sobs. If we could just talk to each other instead of me having to listen to her cry over the pain me and Dan had caused her.
I came around to Cassie’s apartment once expecting her to be the one to answer the door and instead saw Danni, with a slight frown on her face. She didn’t say anything, but she stepped aside to let me in. Cassie was lying on the couch with her head rested against Devon’s shoulder and clutching her mobile. Devon had her arms wrapped around Cassie in an attempt to comfort her. I walked over to crouch down in front of the both of them and rest my hand on Cassie’s tear stained face.
“What’s happened?” I said to Danni.
“Dan answered the phone to her.” She replied. I could tell from the grim tone of her voice that what Dan had said wasn’t very kind.
“Really?” I said in shock. “What did he say?”
Danni looked down for a moment. “Cass was again trying to convince him to talk to the both of you in person. Even on the phone I could hear him yelling at her. He told her that he would talk to you, as soon as she had grown up and realised that you were using her.” I groaned and nervously ran a hand through my hair. “And then, when she said that he was the one who needed to grow up, he said that he was trying to protect her from getting hurt, but it was difficult to do that when she couldn’t keep her legs shut.”
My jaw dropped as those words settled in, and Cassie flinched as she heard them repeated. It was almost as if the words caused her to relive the moment, causing her to break out in a fresh wave of tears. I stared into her deep brown eyes that often reminded me of her brother and felt hurt at watching her in pain. Dan had really said that to his own little sister? In all the years I’ve known him, I had never heard him say anything that spiteful. I couldn’t believe he would even think about saying that. I felt so unbelievably angry that my fists began to clench. I glanced at Cassie again, as she lay helpless in the arms of one of her best friends. At that moment I stormed back towards the front door and threw it open.
“Where are you going?” Danni shouted. She had started to follow me but stopped when she saw the look of fury on my face.
“I’m going to knock some sense into him.” At that moment Cassie slowly sat up and stared at me. She looked as if she was about to say something, but she couldn’t find it in herself to speak. Almost as if she was choking on her words. The sadness in her eyes did not lessen my anger. It only made me more determined to make sure that the person that caused her to feel this way was made to pay.
“Phil, don’t be ridiculous. You’re not thinking clearly.” Devon tried to reason with me.
“I’m giving him what he deserves.” I replied. I then stepped out into the hall and slammed the door behind me. It was time that Dan felt some of the pain that he was causing me and Cass.
I stared at the door, hoping that Phil would walk back through any moment and change his mind. But he didn’t. Danni and Devon spoke to each other in whispers, but I could still hear them.
“Do you think we should go after him?”
“We can’t leave Cassie like this, she needs us.”
“What can we do to help her?”
I then broke my gaze from the door and turned to look at my 2 friends. “Nothing.” I whispered in my broken voice. “There’s nothing you can do.”
Devon then said to Danni, “Call PJ and tell him that Phil is on his way.”
Danni took out her phone and dialled PJ’s number. “Hey Peej, are you at home right now? ... Shit you need to get home now!” she urged her boyfriend. “Phil is on his way over to see Dan right now and he is really angry and we think he might be about to do something stupid and maybe even violent.”
I felt an awful pain in my stomach at the thought of Phil and Dan causing each other harm over me. The look on Phil’s face was one I had never seen before. His eyes that were normally a hypnotic blue, had turned into a storm of rage. I could scarcely believe it was the same guy that I had fallen for as soon as I saw him. “I think I’m going to be sick.” I said, running out of the room and into the bathroom, to kneel in front of the toilet. Behind me I could hear Danni telling PJ to get home as quickly as possible, while Devon pulled my pink hair back and out of my face as I began to throw up. I loved the both of them for all that they were doing for me. Letting me live with them and helping me through my problems with Dan and Phil. All the while I was completely helpless as Phil was on his way to hurt Dan, and there was nothing I could do about it.
