I didn't even realize I had fallen asleep. I woke up in a black room and no warmness by my side. I reached my hand out next to me and my hand hit the sheets. I sat up and turned on the light. 

"Justin?" I called out. No answer.

I hopped out of bed and looked in the bathroom. He wasn't there. I looked around for his phone. It was on the nightstand. I picked it up without any hesitation. To my surprise, it was unlocked. I looked at the ceiling.

Am I really about to invade my boyfriend's privacy? Yes. I went to his messages. Za, his dad, Fredo... What... His ex?! He just sent her a text. My body was burning. I was scared of the unknown. I wasn't prepared for what I was about to see.

I had to know. I opened the text. There were several texts her saying "I miss you", "come see me", "your girlfriend is nothing compared to me".

My heart dropped when I saw this next text. "I'm in town, the same hotel as you. Come see me. I'm waiting for you." She wrote.

Tears built up in my eyes, because he replied. 

"What room? I'm coming. We need to talk."

"152." I dropped the phone and ran out of the room in search of Justin. I caught the elevator.

I felt sick to my stomach. I didn't even think of my claustrophobia. I repeatedly pushed the button for the 3rd floor. I shakily ran my fingers through my hair. The elevator finally reopened. I looked side to side.

I went left. 145, 146, 147, 148, 149, 150, 151, 152. I felt like I was going to throw up. I was sweating and shaking. I brought my hand up to knock on the door. It opened and revealed my sneaky boyfriend.

My heart fell when I saw the bitch in lingerie sitting on the bed. 

"I can't believe you!" I screamed. 

"It's not what it looks like Marissa." Justin held his hand out. 

"Don't touch me!" I backed away.

"Hello, Marissa." She placed her hand and chin on Justin's shoulder. I looked at Justin. I couldn't put my emotions into words. My chest literally began to hurt. Tears blurred my vision and I ran for the elevator. 

"MARISSA WAIT!" Justin called after me.

I ran as fast as I could. A man was exiting the elevator and I caught it before it closed. 

"MARISSA!" He called again. 

I coughed as I choked on my own breath. I frantically pushed the same button on the elevator, trying to escape the drama.

The door began to close. I couldn't hold myself up anymore and fell to my knees. I looked through my fingers and seen the door open up. I looked up through my tears and saw Justin. I wiped my face and went to stand, sadly to fall back down. I was so weak.

"Baby." Justin came to help me. I pushed him away. 

"DON'T TOUCH ME!" I crab-walked to the corner of the elevator. 

"Let me explain! It's not what it looked like!" He pleaded. I grabbed the rail and slowly pulled myself to my feet.

My chest was violently heaving. It felt like I was running out of air. It felt like the walls were closing in. I fanned myself. 

"Babe?" Justin moved closer to me. I didn't have the breath to reject him. I simply waved him away. He stopped. I was shaking so bad. I was having a panic attack.

The elevator lights flickered. We looked up. I was wheezing. The elevator jerked making me scream. 

"Oh my god." Justin's back hit the wall. He grabbed the rail. I was terrified. I looked at Justin as he intently watched me. I was scared to move.

My breaths came shorter. I held my chest. The pain became intense. My tears continued to fall. I gasped and blinked rapidly. 

"Breathe Marissa! Calm down." Justin directed.

His voice made me more upset. He wasn't helping. The lights flickered again. The elevator jolted. I gripped the rail and looked up. I heard something snapping. My jaw dropped. The elevator began to plummet. 

"JUSTIN!" 

"MARISSA!" Justin threw his body over mine.
