Chapter Twenty-Eight

"Stop calling, asshole."

I sighed as Austin hung up my phone and tossed it on the table. He dropped himself down on the sofa next to me and held out a slice of pizza as a peace offering. I shook my head and he shrugged before shoving the slice of pizza in his mouth.

Ever since fleeing Jason's house I haven't spoken or seen him. That was three weeks ago. Every time Jason calls Austin answers the phone and yells at him to stop calling. I wish I had the courage to answer Jason and meet with him to say why I've been ignoring him but every time I thought about it I became sick to my stomach.

How could Jason use me? Just to get to Austin? Why would he even do that?

"Stop thinking. You look constipated." Austin replied as he continued watching the football game on TV. I decided not to answer and just stared outside. I heard Austin sigh and the sound of the TV shutting off met my ears.

My head snapped towards Austin just as he was getting off the sofa. "Where are you going?" I asked as I watched him stuff his feet into his sneakers.

"We are going out." He stated and pulled a light sweater on over his shirt.

"What? Why?" I asked. I wasn't in the mood to go anywhere and to be quite honest I don't think I even had the energy to do so.

"Because I'm tired of seeing you mope around the house. Now go put on something decent and hurry up." He ordered.

I went to protest but his glare made me think twice about that. Slowly I got up from the sofa and went to my room so I could change. Since it was mid December it was actually really cold outside right now. I slipped into a pair of jeans, a long sleeve shirt, and a hooded sweatshirt before putting on my boots and tying my hair into a messy bun.

"Is this okay?" I sarcastically asked Austin as I stepped back into the family room.

He shrugged. "It'll do. Come on, let's go." He said and walked outside.

"Where are we going?" I asked as I got into the passenger seat.

Austin didn't answer me until we pulled out the driveway and took off down the road.

"Christmas shopping." My shoulders slumped at his answer. "And anywhere else you wanna go."

Where did I wanna go? I didn't have much of a social life anymore seeing as how the majority of my time was spent with Jason.

"I don't have anywhere in mind." I shrugged.

"You're so boring now." He replied.

Nothing else was said between us until we reached a small shopping plaza that thankfully wasn't too crowded. Christmas music and decorations greeted us as we walked into the first store near the entrance.

It wasn't until we had stopped inside of a few stores that we decided to take a break. "We almost done?" I asked as we sat down on a bench.

"Pretty much. I still gotta shop for you though." Austin shrugged.

"What are you getting me?" I asked even though I knew he wasn't gonna tell me.

"A life." I glared and he started laughing. "Come on, lets finish up so we can get something to eat."

"Dallas?" I heard behind me.

I turned around and saw Jason standing behind me. I swallowed the lump in my throat and fought back the tears that were burning the back of my eyes.

"What the fuck do you want, asshole?" Austin snapped as he stood up next to me.

"I need to talk to Dallas."

"Not a chance you piece of shit. You've already hurt her enough."

"Austin," I sighed. I looked at Jason who looked disheveled and fought back the urge to go and hug him. "Let's just go."

"Dallas, please." Jason pleaded.

"Bye, Jason." I gave Jason one final look and walked off without looking back for fear of crying.
