Twenty six.

230 6 3

I look between the both of them and Juile isn't meeting my eyes while Hailey has a smile plastered onto her face. I want to rip it off of her and slam her face into the bench but I feel a disgusting taste in my mouth when I feel I want to slam Juile's head into it more than hers. 

Maybe I can do both.

"Addi." Juile tries to get my attention but I can't look into her eyes.

"What?" My voice is barely a whisper.

"It isn't what it look like." She says in a hushed tone and it sends me over.

"Then what's it like?" I snap my head into their direction, Hailey goes to open her mouth but she quickly closes it, thinking twice.

"That's why I am here to talk things out, because this all needs to end." She sounds desperate but I am mixed with emotions. I still want to slam her head against the table but my heart goes out to her.

"Look." Hailey finally speaks up and she places her hand on the table and knits them together.

"I'm not here to pick a fight or start shit, because I'm honestly not as bad as you think I am." She sighs and looks at me, but I feel nothing for her.

MIKE'S POV

My hand is bloodshot red and stinging like hell from pounding my fist against the wall. I am pissed that Hailey has the upper hand here and I have to sit back and watch all of this shit unfold. I want to be there to tell Addison myself but I won't get the chance to since it looks like Hailey is on her way to do it. If it wasn't for Hailey's dumbass actions and acting shady as fuck, maybe I could have held off a bit longer on telling Addison. Now I can't do anything, but wait.

My fingers fumble with the keys on the keyboard of my phone as I write Hailey a text,

"Dpnt you fucjing dare ssy a word"

I'm so pissed that I can't even type a correct sentence to anyone. My vision is cloudy with red and I am fuming even more that everything is going down. Everything about my brother is stinging in my chest as I write another 5 messages to Hailey. Everything I have been dreading is finally about to come into play. All the years I have been building up, are finally being destroyed.

I'm in the middle of texting Addison when my phone is being lifted from my palm and fingers. I look up to see Vic staring at me with a worried look on his face. I snatch my phone away to finish the message I was in the middle of,

"Addi, listen to me. Whatever she tells you... Do. Not. Listen."

"Mike..." Vic sits next to me on my bed and looks at me. I can tell he is worried for me, and I am worried for myself.

"I am scared." The words leave my mouth and I feel a warm wetness form into my eye. My brother hasn't heard me say this since we were kids and I can tell by the way he stiffened, he's taken back.

"I don't know what to do." I shake my head and run my fingers into my hair, tugging on the ends to help with the pain but it isn't going away.

"Why are you so scared?" His voice is soft but it trembles slightly at the end.

"I don't want it to end up like how it did for you."  I put my elbows onto my knees and place my face into my hands.

"What are you talking about?" Vic says so soft that I barely hear him.

"Addison and I." My voice shakes and Vic lets out a deepest breath he was holding in. We both kenw what I was talking about but only was he in denial as to what I was saying.
