Naomi's POV

It was Austin.

Lucy was still screaming and her eyes were wide with fear. Zach scoops Lucy into his arms and said soothing words into her ear. Austin was walking towards us as Zach was glaring at him with so much hate.

"Naomi, can I talk to you?" Austin asked. I look at Zach and he looks angry still. Lucy was crying in his chest as he ran his arm up and down her back in a soothing manner.

"I can't, Austin. Not now. Maybe at school on Monday," I answered him. I walk up to Lucy and I heard her say. "I remember him. He's one of them." She said it over and over again. What does it mean?

Zach was getting angrier. I looked at him and he was glaring at Austin. I'm scared something might happen. Zach's anger never did anyone good. He has a temper and I still remember all those times he showed his anger and it wasn't good.

"Zach lets go," I said softly. He looked down at me and his eyes soften. He nodded and turned towards the door with Lucy still crying in his arms.

"I never thought I'd see the day where the great Zachary Hellman listens to a girl," Austin said with venom. What's he doing? Is this the real Austin?

Zach stopped but then continued walking. I ran up to walk beside him and looked back to give a confused look to Austin.

"Hmmm. Her screams were very entertaining. I want to hear them again." Austin said with an evil smirk. That's when Zach snapped. He gave Lucy to me and walks up menacingly to Austin as he grabbed Austin's shirt.

"Say that again, you piece of shit!" Zach said in a deadly tone. I could feel a shiver of fear run down my spine and he wasn't even looking at me. What does Austin mean? Whose screams? I could feel Lucy shaking as she looks at her brother.

"I said I want to hear her scream-" Austin wasn't able to finish his sentence when Zach punched him in the face. I heard a crack and knew that Zach broke Austin's nose. Austin tried to defend himself but Zach was too fast. I should be angry that Zach is doing this but honestly, Austin deserves it for riling him up.

Lucy buried her face in my neck as she hugged me tightly. She was crying again. I looked at Zach and saw him punching Austin in the face again and again. This has gone too far.

"Zach! Stop!" I screamed but he didn't seem to hear me. He suddenly pushed Austin against the wall and whispered something to him. When Austin didn't seem to reply, Zach let go of him and kick him in the stomach. I felt slightly scared. Zach has a temper and he's very dangerous when he's mad.

He turned to look at me and his eyes soften and when they reached his sister, he frowned. This made me remember that Zach also has a sweet side, especially with his sister. I've seen him play with her and joke around with her. He is also sweet and kind when he is with me. I've realized that he mostly does these awful things for our sake. I couldn't help but smile.

He walked up to me, slowly. His hands were bruised from all the punching. He held his arms out and I saw Lucy trying to reach him as well. I gave Lucy to him and saw her hug him tightly.

"It's fine sis. There's nothing to be scared of. You're safe." Zach said in a cooing manner. I took this time to look around. People look scared and some had their phones out. God this people...

"Naomi." I heard. I turned to him and he was smiling sadly. "I'm sorry you had to see that."

"It's fine. I have a feeling it's something to do with everything that's been going on with you." I said calmly. He nodded.

"I have to take Lucy home. I'm sorry it turned out this way. That ass knows how to ruin a good time." He said with slight anger.

"It's fine. She needs to calm down. I'll see you in school then, I hope." I said.

"Yeah, and be careful. Text me when you reached home." He said with concern.

"Ok and I'll be fine," I assured him. He smiled and we both went out the door. He then grabbed my hand, making me stop and turn to face him. He was looking at me intently.

Then he leaned in and kisses my cheek softly making me gasp. He pulled back and said, "Be safe." I nodded, still shocked. He smiled his dimpled smile and left.

I reached up to touch my cheek. What is this? Why am I feeling like this? My heart pounding like crazy and my stomach feels like there is a swarm of dragons inside them. I just met Zach and just got to know him but this is just so fast. Is it like this for everyone? This connection with him makes me feel so overwhelmed. I never felt anything like this. I shook my head all this thinking is making more confused.

I walk to my house and lie down on the bed. Zach...

When I meet him, I was scared despite my brave act. We just started talking and I realized that the bad boy can also be sweet and fun and charming. He made me laugh and smile a lot. He was cute.

I felt my heart started beating. Why does it beat so fast when I just think of him? I just don't understand.

I saw a book and picked it up. I didn't bother reading the title and just scanned the pages, anything to keep my mind off him. Until I read something.

When I fell in love with him, my heart would speed up at the mere thought of him. Everything he makes me feel is new and overwhelming. This love of ours is both good and bad. Good because he makes me see things in a new perspective and makes me feel things that I never felt before. Bad because it's happening all too fast and I can't keep up and he has a past that's too painful to talk about, secrets that could ruin our love. But being with him, despite all the bad things that could and would happen, it makes me feel alive. Before I met him, everything was dark as night, empty and lonely. Then he came along making the darkness go away with his never-ending light. He was like a sun. He was my sun.

Oh god. This is exactly what I feel for Zach. Do I? Do I really love him? But it's too soon, right? I don't know. It's too soon to love him like this. I don't know. I don't know...

I have to take a shower. It'll help me think things through.
