Lola's POV

I woke up smiling. Today was a good day, it was very early, but I didn't mind getting up early because the guys were heading back to the studio and that was exciting. Today was also a good because last night my date had been perfect.
I showered quickly then headed downstairs. I'd let Alex sleep awhile longer, only problem with that, she was already up, sitting in the kitchen drinking coffee.
"Morning." I said, walking in. "You're up early."
"Couldn't sleep."
Of course she couldn't sleep, who could blame her.
"You're not going to work I hope?" I asked.
She shook her head. "I've taken some time off, I need to rest."
"Alex that is a great idea."
She smiled a little. "Yeah and I'm going to see a therapist tomorrow."
"That is fantastic." She needed it. "You still coming this morning?"
"Of course." She told me. "And I promised Matt."
Oh she promised Matt, well. I wasn't sure what to make of that. Surely there wasn't something there was there?
I shook my head, Alex was in no state for something like that and maybe I needed to have a word with Matt about it.
"Well good." I said. "We can have some breakfast then head down."
She nodded and we both got breakfast, eating in silence.
"Ready?" I asked, once I'd finished getting ready.
I looked at Alex and once again I felt a little jealous, she honestly was a beautiful girl, and it saddened me that her beauty had been destroyed by an asshole.
"Let's go." I said heading to the door.
Alex was right behind me and as I opened the door, I sensed something wasn't right straight away but it took me moment to realise.
"Get inside." I told Alex, pushing her back through the door, then locking it.
"What?" She asked. "What is it?"
Fuck. I dug my phone out, calling Matt.
"Please tell me you're still coming." He answered.
"Jesus Matt." I said in a shaky voice.
"What?" He asked.
"What?" Alex asked and I could hear the panic rising in her voice.
"Fuck." I said.
"What?" Matt and Alex both said together.
"Alex, go to the kitchen, make sure the back doors locked." I ordered.
I watched panic wash over her face, but I was also glad when she turned, heading into the kitchen.
"Lola." Matt said, sounding panicked. "Is he there?"
"I don't know, I don't know if he's still here."
"Why, what's happened?" He asked.
"Ugh Matt, her car, it's ruined."
"Right, call the police, I'm on my way." He ordered.
"Matt, you can't come over, not today."
"Well I fucking am, they can manage without me for a bit." He told me. "Now hang up, call the police and I'll be there soon."
I hung up, dialing the police. Alex ran back in looking terrified.
She opened her mouth to speak, but I held my hand up silencing her while I explained what had happened. I watched her as I told them and her face crumpled as I explained everything. God that poor girl.
"Is he still here?" She cried as I hung up.
"I don't know Alex." I said, hugging her. "We'll stay her until Matt or the police arrive."
"Matt's coming?" She asked and I swear I heard anticipation and relief in her voice.
"He'll be here soon."
"My car?"
I shook my head. Her car was ruined. I don't know how he did it, but that prick had gotten in the gate and he'd completely trashed her car, it was ruined.
I hugged her while she cried and we waited and finally Matt arrived and I immediately felt safer.
"The police are here." He told us, walking in.
We headed towards the door and I noticed Matt reach out, putting his arm around Alex.
"You don't need to see that." He told her quietly.
Oh no, I desperately needed to speak to him, I really did, but I had to admit he was good, keeping Alex occupied while the police were here, arranging everything so that she didn't have to talk much or see her car. He was making sure she wasn't hurt and it was really sweet, but I hoped Matt wasn't hoping for something that would never happen.
"What am I going to do?" Alex asked, when the police finally left.
"You can borrow one of mine." Matt told her softly.
She shook her head, but he insisted.
"And." He added. "We can all go down to the studio together now."
"Yeah good idea." I told him.
"And then tonight." He continued. "On the way home, we can drop into my place, we can get the car and I'll grab some stuff because I'm staying here until all of this is sorted."
I shook my head. "Don't be silly." That was a really bad idea.
"I'd like that." Alex softly.
