Chapter Seven

6.7K 319 4

      Hey guys, Merry Christmas! I got a new computer so it will be easier to write, rather than on my phone. Recap: Allison is getting felt up by a creepy guy and then in a split second she sees him being thrown to the other side of the room. 

     Imma stop talking and let's get going with chapter 7! 

  It all happened so fast. His body was thrown out of my face like he weighed nothing and all I see is the angry face of James. When the guy was thrown, he hit my dresser which caused the mirror along with it, crash to the ground. I jump when I hear it shatter and see glass near my feet. 

    James hadn't moved his eyes off me. He had different emotions in his eyes, filled with anger and concern. 

   After with what felt like 10 years, he quickly walks over to me and touches my shoulder. 

     "Are you okay?" he says so softly that I could barely hear him.

      "Uh- Yeah" I manage to say, glancing over to the guy that was thrown like a rag doll. He was now passed out. 

    "I don't know what happened but I heard you scream." 

    "He was just getting way to close for my comfort. Thank you. I kind of just froze." I say not making eye contact with him. 

   He just nods and we both just sit there awkwardly, not knowing what to say or do next. 

  "Alright, well I'll just take him out of here." he says turning away. 

   And with that he drags the guy and closes my door. 

    I end up cleaning up the glass, because I'm the maid and it's sort of my job. 

    James really sent me different vibes today. I feel like I am slowly seeing who he is and his different response to things. I never imagined him being the one to just throw a dude across the room. 

    I feel a buzz on my phone and I see another text from Seth. 

      "I'm sorry for spamming your phone and looking like a crazy person. I just really feel a little connection to you and I want to find out more about it." 

     My heart skips a beat and I can't stop smiling like an idiot. I want to at least try things with Seth. Who knows maybe I can balance work and a relationship. 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

      James gave me a day off because he was going to be out of town for the night I made plans with Seth to get coffee. 

       When I get to the coffee shop, I see Seth sitting down at a table. When he sees me, he puts a huge grin on his face. He was pretty adorable. 

   "Hey, I ordered you a surprise coffee to see if you can guess the right drink. You said you were a coffee master, so lets see your moves." He says with, an evil grin.

  "Alright, I'll take you up on that. If I win, you gotta pay. If you win, I will pay."

   "I was going to pay no matter what, but bring it." He says, testing me. 

    When I get the drink, I automatically know it, because it's my all time favorite coffee drink. 

   "Java Chip Frappe, extra whip cream and an extra half table spoon of actual coffee." I say so confidently. 

   "Wow you're good. I didn't think you would get the extra whip cream." he says, letting out a sign of defeat. 

   After an hour of talking about random things, we come onto the topic of relationships. My throat felt like it was closing up because I was so nervous. The last time I had a boyfriend was like sophomore year in high school. Lame right? 

   "On my to do list, I have listed to find out everything about you. I am interested in you and I've never had a spark like this with anyone." And as he says this, he touches my hand.

 At that moment, my mind flashes back to when I was 11 years old. My uncle is stomping towards me. It was a family get together. I went down to the garage to get more sodas and I was cornered. My uncle grabs at my hand. "This can stay between us." my uncle whispers. 

  Soon life goes back to reality and I start shaking. 

    "Allison, are you okay?" I hear Seth say. His voice begins to sound like an echo and before I know it, I am on the ground and all I see is black. 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Suddenly I am woken up by lights flashing in my eyes from a doctor. I was in the hospital bed with cords attached to me. The doctor still thinks I am asleep and walks out. I slowly open my eyes to see Seth sitting down in the chair next to my bed, with his face in his palms. 

    I try clearing my throat and Seth's head pops up. I can see the concern in his eyes. 

   "How long have I been out?" I manage to squeak out. 

  "Just an hour. Are you okay?" 

   "Uh yeah, I just got dizzy." I lied. 

    "I was so worried about you, you just kind of fell without any sign of it happening." 

After he says that, the door swings open and I see James. 

 What the hell was he doing here?

  "The doctors were able to contact Mary to let me know that you were here"  he says looking at me. 

  "Yeah but, why are you here, if you don't mind me asking" I say. 

  "Why are YOU in here."

  "I just passed out, I'm okay" I say, finding it odd that he was worried.

   "Oh I was scared that Thomas had found you again and something had went down" He says. 

I'm assuming Thomas was the dude that tried to feel me up the other night. 

  We all three kind of sit there in silence, when Seth says "So how do you know her?" talking to James. 

  "She works for me. And what about you?" 

   "We have been going on a couple of dates, that you end up ruining every time" he says, kind of mumbling the last part. 

  "I'm sorry, what was that?" James says, knowing exactly what he said. 

   "Alright, well I'm tired and I would love to just rest. Thanks for getting me here, Seth and thanks for checking in, Mr. Black" 

   Seth hugs me goodbye and James walks out. 

  I don't know why, but that was so awkward.
