Chapter 4: Hide and Seek

Start from the beginning

"Stop acting like a psychopath! Me exchanging words with another guy about HOMEWORK doesn't change the fact that you're my boyfriend and I only see you!"

"Yes it does. His eyes were all over your body."

"Oh so you can talk to Tanya all you want but I can't do a school project with Rolfe? DO YOU WANT ME TO FLUNK OUT OF SCHOOL?"

"Shut up, you slut! I don't want to hear his disgusting name."

"Don't you dare call me a slut! Now let me go! I don't like it when you act so possessive."

"You asked for this." 

"Cody, I swear to God I'm gonna slap you so hard you'll be out until Tuesday."

He guffaws sinisterly. "I'd like to see you try."

"Don't tempt me Cody!"

"Listen here you little bitch," his eyes flare red again, "Right now I'm going to fuck you harder than you've ever been fucked before. Maybe this will teach you who you belong to."

Frustrated beyond belief, I scream louder than ever before. Cody covers his ears and rolls off of me, allowing me to shimmy off the bed. I understand that we role play a lot like this but right now I'm not in the mood.

I look back at Cody who is confused, angry, and annoyed. His hands cover his ears. "What the fuck was that for, babe?" 

"Don't 'babe' me, Cody! You were about to fuck me without my consent! What kind of boyfriend does that? Scratch that, WHAT KIND OF PERSON WOULD EVER TRY TO FORCE SOMEONE TO DO THAT!?" 

He stares at me blankly with a hint of regret sunken in his eyes. I walk towards the door, picking up a nightgown that I had lost a few nights ago during one of our late night rendezvous and sliding it over my head. 

Cody still remains frozen on the bed as he stares back at me with what looks like regret.

"Skylar, wait!" His face softened and his eyes pour out guilt. But I'm not having any of it.

"Fuck you Cody Sutherland!" I scream as I slam his door shut. 

I am surprised at first he doesn't go after me. After all, I expected him to pursue me and make me apologize for calling him those things. I can't wrap my head around this. I don't know if this means he realized how much of a dick hole he was being or if he is plotting a punishment for me tomorrow. 

I rush to the foyer where I find my phone and my backpack. I try to open the door but it doesn't budge. And Cody took the key. 

I guess I'll have to wait until the morning. I decide to hide myself where he would least expect me to be. I wander around until I find myself at the foot of the laundry room. I quickly go inside and close the door behind me.

I sit with my back to the wall as I contemplate how to get out of this mess. I need to leave Cody. Usually his aggressiveness turns me on but tonight he just wasn't listening to me!

I pull out my phone to text Chelsea but I have no service or Wifi. Rats! I forgot! Our wifi is down and we're getting it fixed tomorrow. And I have no cell service here...

I have to stay awake because I want to be able to hide if I hear footsteps. There's no way I want to face Cody right now. Without cell service or anything to entertain myself, I decide to lay down. I soon close my eyes and try my best to not let my exhaustion take over.

However, all I know is that at some point I fell asleep somewhere amongst these thoughts.


Hey y'all. Bea here.

First things first, relationship violence is NEVER okay and I am in no way advocating or glamorizing it in this book. If someone does what Cody did to Skylar to you, then you best get the hell away from him/her. Consent is extremely important and if someone isn't respecting that, leave their sorry ass!

I am stressed because I didn't do summer reading and I have a test on one of the books tomorrow. I am currently trying to spark notes each chapter but that isn't doing me any good. I just hate summer reading so much. Like I LOVE reading but the books they make us read are never of my interest, you know? So this entire summer I may have read around ten books but none of them were for school. It just frustrates me beyond belief.  Anyways, I felt like publishing a chapter today so here you go. But who else hates summer reading????

What did you think of this chapter?
What do you think about Cody's actions? Did he go too far?
Or is Skylar just overreacting?
Do you think Cody feels regret or is just planning her future punishment?

Also, what do you think her punishment would be? Get creative. I'm curious. ;)

Until next time,
