Chapter 14

I sat in my bed. Not doing anything. I just thought, the thoughts were racing through my head faster then I could think.

I breathed deeply as I thought about what I had lost. Chase. And Josh. It was Josh's fault that he was no longer considered a friend but it was my fault that Chase isn't.

I curled up into a ball and cried. Tears running down my cheeks.

What was I doing?

I couldn't just not try to get Chase back.

I got out of bed, tears still falling from my eyes and I grabbed my coat and went outside. I started walking to Chase's house, knowing that he'd be mad that I showed up. I didn't care though I just wanted to see him.

I turned a corner and looked at the ground as I walked closer to Chase's house. I still had a block or two to walk but the fact that I was this close to him already made me nervous. What is he gonna say when he sees me? I shook that thought out of my head and kept walking.

The cold air made me shiver.

I turned a corner, I was now on Chase's street.

I walked to chase's house and knocked on the door.

No one answered but I could hear someone whimpering from inside.

I walked through the door and my eyes widened in shock.

Chase was on the floor, his mother standing over him like she was going to smack him.

"Stop!" I yelled as her hand came down, leaving a bright red mark on his cheek.

She looked toward me. "Katelyn, dear." She said with a fake smile.

"What are you doing to him?!" I yelled.

"You don't know what happened?" She began stuttering, as if that was going to explain anything.

"I don't need to." I said.

"Chase. Go get Alex." I said. He nodded with a small wince and then he went upstairs.

"Katelyn?" His mother asked.

"What?" I spat.

"You don't understand-" she began.

"I don't want to." I said as Chase and Alex came down the stairs.

We walked out of the house, leaving his mom behind.

We walked to Chase's car, he put Alex in the car seat and then got in the drivers seat, me sitting in the passenger seat.

"So, um thanks." He said without looking at me.

"Is that why you were in the hospital?" I asked, my voice was soft, and filled with concern.

"We'll talk about this later" he said, a quick look to Alex, I nodded.

We got to my house and we went inside.

I looked at Chase and saw the dark bags under his eyes. "You can take a nap in my room if you want."

"Thanks." He said.

He walked upstairs.

(Chase P.O.V)

(A/N okay! So I've been begged by some people to do a Chase P.O.V *cough* Melissa *cough*

My eyes fluttered open, I sighed and got out of the spot where I had fallen asleep.

I walked down the stairs, to be met by the sound of crying.

The liquid sadness flowed down her soft cheeks, leaving a wet, black trail of makeup in the path. Her body shook and convulsed as if she no longer had control of it. She struggled to breathe with each desperate gasp of air she took, only to release it again in another forceful sob.

I know I just sounded like a poet, but that's exactly how I felt when I saw her. When I looked at Katelyn I felt like I could write a poem.

Her hair hung in front of her face as she sobbed.

I couldn't bear watching anymore, I turned away about to walk back up the stairs.

But she turned around and saw that I was on the stairs.

"Chase?" She asked, her voice soft.

I nodded, not knowing what to say.

"I'm so sorry. I didn't want you to see me cry!" She said, wiping a tear from her eye.

Her eyes were red and puffy grin crying, her arms were shaking while she wiped her eyes.

"You don't have to apologize for crying." I responded. I honestly didn't know why I had said that. No, she didn't need to apologize for crying, but she had to apologize for breaking my heart.

She didn't say anything, she just nodded.

She walked away, as I walked down the stairs.

Walking into the living room, I looked at the sofa, and saw Alex, her eyes closed looking peaceful. I smiled, happy that she was able to sleep.

I walked into the kitchen, Katelyn was leaning on the the counter, a cup in her hand.

She looked up and forced a smile onto her face.

Silence. That's all. Neither of us spoke. Silence. I wasn't going to be the first one to talk.

"So, um how are you feeling?" She asked, trying to ease the tension.

"I'm fine. And thanks." I said, not wanting to admit that she had helped me.

She nodded.

"I'm going upstairs, I have homework." She said, walking away from me.
