~Chapter 8~


I just couldn't believe this. My mother is standing right in front of me. My chest was starting to tight up as I held onto the doorframe to keep me up right.

I could hear Bentley telling my mother something and I felt someone brush past me. Someone grabbed my shoulders and pulled me so I was facing them.

"Addi? Baby look at me" I blinked and looked up to see Bentley.

"This can't be happening" I mumbled.

"Baby you need to go in there and talk to them" He said."To see what they want"

I nodded."Your right they just can't come to my home in the middle of the night"

He kissed my forehead."I'm going to go check on Lexi. If you want you can wait till I get back to talk to them"

I nodded."I'll fix them something while I'm at it"

He nodded before turning around and heading towards Alexis's room. I took a deep breath and walked into the kitchen and fixing two glasses of water.

I headed back to the living room and saw my mom and they boy talking to each other. I cleared my throat to get their attention.

"Here you go" I said as I placed the glasses on the coffee table.

"Is he your mate?" My mother asked as I sat down on the other couch.

I nodded, not being able to talk. I needed Bentley to help me. Where in the heck was he?

"He loves you" She said again.

"I know that's why he stayed and married me"

We stopped talking when we heard Bentleys footsteps and his voice. Bentley came in with a sleepy but awake Alexis.

"She won't go back to bed" He told me as he sat down beside me and placed Alexis on my lap.

"Mommy" Her tired voice said. I pulled her closer to me and let her nuzzle her face in my chest.

"What's wrong, sweetheart?" I asked.

"I had a bad dream" She mumbled.

I moved some blond curls away from her face."Shh go to bed"

I softly hummed to her as she started to drift off to sleep. I looked up and saw my mother looking at me with love. What was I talking about? My mother doesn't love me.

"What are you here for?" I asked her.

She cleared her throat."Can't I see my only daughter?"

"You've had 15 years to see me and you didn't"

Bentley rubbed my back to keep me calm and lord knows that is needed it. I was ready to jump up and rip her to shreds, if I didn't have Alexis I would've. My mother didn't have anything to say after that so I looked at the boy beside her and saw that he had the same blond hair and green eyes as I do.

"And who are you?" I asked angerly.

"I-I'm Luke" He studdered.

"What do you guys really want?" Bentley asked.

"Your father took you away from me. I was going to come and get you but he never let you outside, he made sure I was never going to steal you away from him. I did leave your father for another man because I knew he was going to take care of us but your fathr found out before I had a chance"

"Why didn't you try to steal me afterwards?" I cried.

"I found out I was pregnant and I couldn't do alot of things but I did make the man I was with try and steal you but your father was too smart for either of us"

"You had another baby!" I screamed.

"Addi calm down..." Bentley said but ignored him and gave him Alexis who was no awake and looking scared.

"You had another baby while I was stuck in that house being beatened to death everyday and everynight!"

"I tried, okay!" She screamed back.

"Well not hard enough!" I screamed back."I had to deal with beatings for ten years, if Bentley hadn't came into my life I would be dead by now!"

"That's enough!" Bentley roared.

I looked over and saw that his eyes were pitch black and he could barely hold himself together. I knew he never wanted to talk about my past again because it made him angry. I walked over to him and held him into a hug, trying to calm him down.

"I want you too out" He demanded my mother and the boy."I've had enough of this bullshit!"

"Daddy?" Alexis cried as he yelled again. He pulled her closer to him and kissed her forehead, She snuggled closer to him and looked at all of us like we were crazy.

Bentley took a deep breath."I need all of you out so I can get my daughter to bed" Bentley turned around and started to walk back into the hallway, I can't beileve he leaved me here.

"Addi I still need to talk to you" My mother said.

I sighed."I'll call you when I can"

Once they leaved I walked into the kitchen and sat down at the island. I just can't take this anymore. I need some time to myself or at least away from this drama. I walked into the bedroom and saw Bentley sitting there with his head in his hands.

"I think we need a vacation" I told him.

He laughed.'Ya think"

"Maybe we can go to the beach, the whole family" I suggested.

He nodded."Yeah cause I can't take this shit anymore. Addi I love you more than anything in the wrold but this is just stressing me out"

"It's stressing me out too"

"Lets just go to bed" He said."We'll talk more in the morning"


Oh no Bentley is tired of all the crap happening now. Maybe they do need a break.

I'll update soon!

XOXO, Madeline
