My heart stops and for a moment I want to scream out no. He thinks it's his job that's the reason behind all the threatening stuff that's happened. I can't tell him it's Rhys because that would only encourage him to move us to another state.
"Nothing has happened to me."
"I don't want anything to which is why I'm considering taking this job," His voice is still scratchy from the cold he caught and evidently passed on to me. "The moment, a first sign that someone is after you and I'm taking the opportunity to leave. I've lost your mother and I won't lose you as well."
Nodding I swallow the lump as everything feels like it's on fire. "I'm going to Rhys' now."
"Are you sure you should be going anywhere? You look-"
"I'm fine. I'll see you when I get home."
I rush outside, taking a jacket but slamming the door behind me. My head pounds and I squeeze my eyes shut with a groan. Bad idea. I open my eyes to shuffle my feet to my car parked in the driveway as the pain intensifies.
Moving away is not an option. It can't be an option because that would mean restarting in a place I don't want to be. While my life isn't perfect, it's a step closer to where I want it to be. I have this amazing guy who would do anything for me and even though he might not be forever, I don't want to lose him over something like this.
Even with his dark baggage, he's still mine and I won't give him up. If I moved I would want to try long distance despite the curse of it saying all of them will fail. That's how strongly I believe in what Rhys and I have, I think I'm falling for him which is absurd.
Releastically our whole relationship is absurd and I don't think I would have it any other way.
I pull up behind Lachlan's car, checking my appearance in the mirror. On the way over here I started to cry at the thought of being torn away from my current life. Nothing else will happen, it can't happen that's for sure.
"Everything okay?" I nod, stepping onto the path while pulling my phone out. "I don't believe you, what's wrong?"
"Scary news at a scary time," I send Lachlan Jamie's number and hear his phone buzz at the text. His eyebrows are furrowed and I suck my lips in. "My dad wants to move because he thinks a client is responsible for his and Taylor's attack. So I'm not really fine, I just need for everything to go right."
Rhys slams the door and storms his way to us. "I'm coming whether you want me to or not."
"No. Not only is this dangerous but you're sick," When in distance the back if his hand goes to my forehead. "You have a temperature so go home and rest."
"You don't get to talk right now, " He glares at Lachlan when he tries to interfere with the conversation. "You're sick and even if you weren't you wouldn't be coming anyways. I made a promise to you and I plan to keep it - just trust me on this."
"Stop treating me like I'm incapable."
He raises an eyebrow and slips his phone into his jeans. Before I can even realize he's swinging his fist that gently knocks into my temple. I try to deflect his arm only for him to yank me into his chest and an arm to press to my neck before he kicks one leg out to send me to the ground.
Huffing I use my hands to push myself up and send a glare his way. "It took me five seconds to take you down and if I was the enemy you could have been severely hurt. So you either go home or stay here with Nate and Jordan."
