Millie

I take a deep breath, debating whether or not I should do this, it's not too late to walk away? But I can't. I have to know why he did what he did. I want to believe that it was a drunken mistake, that somewhere deep inside his heart, he isn't a bad person.

I've come all the way up here. No turning back now.

Reluctantly I knock the door three times, feeling my heart starting to increase as I hear footsteps coming from the other side. Suddenly the door widens and reveals Jacob, his facial expression mirrors mine.

I take a deep breath, Finn must have went full force. My eyes zoom in on the purple and blue covering the map of his skin, the abused areas painted all around his right eye.

"Millie?" Jacob stutters to spit out my name, almost as if it were venom in his thin, dry lips.

"Jacob" I nod. A few moments pass.

"Who let you in?" His eyebrows raise in suspicion.

"Security downstairs" I nod slowly.

"Do you wanna.. come in?" Jacob says slowly, my eyes look over his shoulder, a tv is playing in the background.

"I understand if you don't-" he whimpers softly before I reluctantly interrupt him.

"Sure" I sigh, Jacob nods his head as he stands aside for me to walk in first. I make my way to the hotel living room, it looks vaguely familiar to mine.

"So.." I say as I take a seat on the sofa, he joins a few moments later as he takes a seat beside me.

"Millie let me-" Jacob says softly.

"Please Jacob.. please tell me that yesterday was a mistake. That you weren't thinking straight.
That you were drunk and out of you mind" I exclaim softly, resting my head in my hands.

"Yes! Millie, I don't know what came over me. That's never happened before in my life!" Jacob insists.

"The boys say that you have a .." I say pausing," a reputation" I take a deep breath.

"That's to do with relationships and cheating and scandals" Jacob reassures me,"Stuff, I don't want to get into but my publicist encourages it for public stunts" He scoffs.

"Millie- I know nothing I can say now will ever be enough for what happened last night, but I am truly sorry" He says slowly, the words sinking.

I turn to look at him, shaking my head."You talked about how I was different from any other girl" I sigh before he interrupts me.

"You are!" He exclaims.

"I- I nearly believed you" I scoff as I rub my face in frustration.

"If you don't believe me, why are you back?" Jacob teases, a slight challenge in his tone.

I turn my head slowly to look at him with calculating eyes.

"Give me one- just one more chance" he pleads, his hand resting on my shoulder. His eyes show no emotion but his smirk says it all, he knows I'm going to give him a chance, but little does he know me.

I nod my head,"It will take time" I point out, standing up. He gets up with me, a smile across his lips.

"Because I'm just loveable like that?" Jacob teases.

"Because I like you", I say seriously,"If you want this friendship to last, you need my trust" His eyes light up slightly by my words.

"I know"

He holds my gaze captive,"I'm going to go" I point towards me. I start making my way to the door, he leans to open the door for me.

I take a step out and look back at him,"Don't make me regret it" I scoff, he nods slowly. With one last glance, I head down the stairs, heart in hand.

"You did what!" Sadie scoffs, I nod back.

"Yeah, but I think he meant what he said"I shrug, I turn to look at Finn for some sort or reaction but I get none, his eyes are glued to the floor, his arms folded.

"Well as long as your happy Millie" Gaten sends me a smile.

"Thank you Gaten" I smile back.

"Well, I think I know what will cheer us up" Noah exclaims jumping from his chair, we all look back at him in confusion.

"The beach!" Noah exclaims as if it was the most obvious thing in the world.

"I'll say yes to that" Caleb says high diving Noah.

"Guys I don't know, with Finn and Millie getting threatened. Now maybe isn't the best time to be in public" Sadie sighs as she shares a look with Noah.

"Look- first of all- it's a private beach, exclusively for us. Second I'll double the security and third, we need something to cheer us up!" Noah points out.

"Pleaseee" Noah emphasise as he nudged Sadie slightly.

"Okay fine" Sadie giggles, I take a minute to observe Noah tickling her. Cute.

"I could do with a day away from everything" Caleb shrugs as he slouches further into the leather sofa, his expression unbothered.

"We can stop on the way for bathing suits" I say as I click my fingers, suddenly really into the idea. A break would be nice for once.

I run into the bathroom and grab a towel, a pair of sunglasses, sun lotion and sun hats."We'll take the limo" I exclaim.

"Lets go" Noah says standing up alongside everyone else. Maybe the beach is exactly what I need.

Or maybe Finn is..
