Ecstacy Chapter 5
“How did you find me?” I said without looking. I know exactly who it was
“Everyone is out looking for you. You had everyone worried about you” Frank said
“ like you give a damn. You prolly wish I was dead.” I said wiping my tears away
“you’ve got me all wrong. I actually care more than you know” he said
“I do. Look I know we haven’t exactly gotten along, actually I don’t even know why we are fighting. I never meant any of the things I said. You just get under my skin and I say the first thing that I can. You’re not a slut, or prostitute or anything I called you. Except a bitch. Cause that you definitely can be. Im sorry for everything” he said. I didn’t say anything.. I just looked at him. I could tell he was truly sorry. I turned and looked at the ocean again.
“I was raped twice. Once when I was 12 and again when I was 18 and in college. That’s why when you said what you did tonight I broke down. I can handle most shit but not that.” I said quietly. I felt tears start rolling down my cheeks again.
“Katie I.... I didn’t know.. I would have never...” he started.
“No one but the girls and my brother know. He is the only guy that I have really been able to be around and feel safe around. And now there is who, who even after everything I still feel oddly comfortable around” I said. He wrapped his arms around me.
“ I will never let anyone hurt you again. You can count on me” he whispered in my ear. It made me cry even harder and I don’t really know why. I felt extremely safe in his arms and it scared me a bit. A breeze blew across us making me shiver.
“ you must be freezing” he said taking his jacket off and wrapping it around me. My phone started ringing. It was Luna
“Where the fuck are you ” she asked.. Well yelled
“ im ok. Frank is here” I said
“ like that makes it any better, you two will prolly kill each other” she said
“no we wont. I”ll be back to the bus soon I promise.” I said before hanging up
“Katie fo you think we could start over. I mean from the beginning” Frank asked
“ I’d like that” I said
“hi I am Frank Iero, guitarist of MCR and band midget as Gerard likes to call me” Frank said making me laugh
“I am Katie Mellencamp, singer and shortest person of Ecstacy” I said. He pulled me into a hug and kissed my forehead. We talked all the way back to the busses. We really did have a lot in common and it wasn’t just our shortness.
“Well miss Katie it was really nice actually talking to you. I am always here if you need me” frank said hugging me
“wait Frank, do you think you could... never mind” I said
“what is it” he said
“ its just the girls are prolly sleeping and I don’t want to be alone right now and...” I started
“are you asking me to stay over” he said with a smirk
“just forget it” I said opening the bus door and stepping on
“hey I will if you really want me to” he said. I nodded and he followed me on the bus.
“Wanna watch a movie or something” I asked
“sure. My pick though” he said walking over to our movie collection. He picked on out and put it in for us. We both sat on the couch together. I didn’t even make it halfway through the movie before falling asleep
