One Last Battle...In A Court

A/N:Heyyyy. So I an going to give you guys a warning right now.... There are only 2 chapters left of this book (and epilogue). BUT I will be writing bonus chapters every once in a while so don't be too sad. ;)

Lilly's POV:

        I woke up and started hearing the fighting. The constant yelling and screaming. Over what, you might ask? Everything. My parents weren't getting along well at all. It wasn't even fighting about the mission anymore. It was every tiny thing the other would do and it suddenly turned into World War III in this house.

        Yesterday night after I came home from my date with Jake, (which was amazing, might I add) my mom walked out for about 5 hours before coming back home. It was 3 o'clock in the morning and my mom just came back. How could they manage to pick a fight this late/early.

      Usually I would just sit in my room and ball up, pretending they weren't there. Every so often a tear would slip from my eye. It was late though and I could not deal with this BS right now. I am tired. I ran into Josh's room to see if he was awake. He conditioned himself to be able to sleep through this wreck. I, on the other hand, had not, and now I'm wide awake.

        I went back into my room and slid my window open. I crawled onto the ledge (no I was not going to commit suicide) and I sprang off using the technique from Headquarters. I landed safely. It had been a while since I had done that.

         I walked to the sidewalk and swung a left, wandering down the street. Two houses away I stop at a familiar house. I walked to the right side of the house and make my way up to the balcony to his room. It was easy considering there was a tree there. I knocked on the balcony door lightly hoping he wouldn't go spy crazy on me when he opened it. "Jake..." I said just loud enough for him to hear from his room. "It's me. Please." Before I could say anything else the door was open and he was staring down at me. He didn't say anything, instead he just pulled me into a hug. I felt the warmth of his breath on my skin and his biceps curled around me. It felt so safe in his arms. He pulled away, much to my disliking.

       "Come on." He said pulling me into his room and closing the door. He flipped the light switch on. I had never actually been in his room before. Only to his house at the beginning of this huge mess of a mission. He had a full sized bed with a black comforter. His room was painted a dark blue with pictures of his family on a desk in the corner. He had a pretty nice room although it was a mess right now. I can't blame him though because mine was too.

        It had only been a couple seconds of thought and I was really cold. Jake came up to me and took my face in his hands. He whiped some tears from my face that I was unaware of. "Why would you walk in the rain on a cold night all the way from your house to mine? Especially with tears in your eyes? Tell me what's wrong, baby." He looked concerned. Was it really raining? I looked down at my clothes that were soaked and realized that I was freezing. A shiver ran down my spine before I could answer. "I... my parents." I simply said. He walked to his drawer and pulled out some sweatpants and a t-shirt, along with his sweatshirt. "It's okay. Get dressed and we'll talk after you're not freezing." He kissed my forehead and sent me to the bathroom.

        I walked out in the comfy, yet super big clothes. I sat next to him on the bed. There was a moment of silence before I decided to talk. He didn't want to push it. "They fight all the time. They were fighting just now. And... they're getting a divorce." my voice shook as a tear escaped my eyes. "I saw the papers on the counter, already signed and everything." The tears were just flowing freely now and I couldn't help it. Jake leaned his arm around me and pulled my face into his muscular chest. My tears stained his shirt. "It's okay Lilly. It's for the best." He shushed so that I would stop crying. "That's the sad part. I wanted them to divorce because... I... I just couldn't take it anymore." I said a little louder this time with a hint of anger in my voice and the anger was directed at myself. "I can't say that I know what it feels like, heck I don't know what to say. It's okay to feel that way because it is too much for a teenage girl to have to go through and I'm sorry that you have to." He said while stroking my hair. He placed a slight kiss on my head. "It's late. You should get to sleep. I'll be here in the morning." He said pulling me into the right position. I was out like a light and it was probably due to the lack of yelling in the house.

       I woke up with a heavy arm slung around my waist. I looked back to meet Jake's eyes. "Good morning, sleepy head." He whispered, kissing my forehead. "Morning." I said then I started to think and I was quite confused on why I was in Jake's room. The memories of the previous night flowed into my mind and sadness washed over my face. Jake looked at me with confusion then sympathy. His eyes showed an emotion I like to call caring. He really did care about me. "It's going to be okay." He said before getting up from bed. I got up as well noticing the time. 10:30, shit. I know it is a Sunday and all but 1) my parents have probably already realized I was gone, and are now fighting about it. 2) I can't put on my clothes from last night because they are still soaking wet. 3) they will be waiting for me when I get home and no mater which way I choose to sneak in, they will catch me. I'm screwed. "I have to go. I'm probably in enough trouble as it is. I don't want to make it any worse. Thank you." I said looking down, embarrassed.  He leaned my head up and planted a kiss directly on my lips. "No problem, princess." He said, grabbing my hand to walk me to the door.

       I walked straight in trough the front door knowing there was no way I could even try to save myself. "Where the hell wer.... are those Jake's clothes?" My mother yelled with disgust swept on her face. "You know better than that. You ran off to some boy. I thought I raised you better." My father spit with a face as red as it could get. "You raised her? You were barely even her the past year." My mom yelled at him. "So this is all due to your parenting skills. Good job. Round of applause. Our daughter is a slut!" My dad's words stung in a place deep down. It was untrue.

         "STOP! For the record I am still a virgin. Nothing happened! I can't believe you think I would do something like that. Plus if it wasn't for you two yelling and screaming, I wouldn't have to break out of this hell hole in the first place." I shot back. They were boiling with rage now.

      My brother ran down the stairs but only I could see him. He escaped into the kitchen. My parents yelled at me then each other then me again for about three minutes before Josh blew through the room with papers firm in his hand. His rage was trough the roof. "What is this?!" He screamed over our parents. The room went silent. "We.. are getting a divorce." My mother explained. "Great, just fucking great. At least I won't have to hear your pathetic yelling all the time anymore." He blew up in they're face. He flew up the stairs and I was right behind him. I got into his room before he could slam the door.

        "I just.... ugh!" He grunted while punching his fist through the wall. "I know. Tell me about it. They were practically ripping my head off down there and they were even hiding something from us." I stated with a pissed off attitude to my voice.

      A knock sounded at the door. The door opened before either of us could object. It was our mother. "Guys, I'm really sorry I didn't tell you. I just didn't know how. The court date is tomorrow. I want you two to go out and do something and we will let you know what happens. We have had this planned for a while now and I'm sorry this is how you had to find out." Her soft voice stated with a tear running stray. "Anyway that's it." She said, shuffling to the door and leaving the room, whiping her tear away.

         The day passed slowly and all I could think about was what was happening in the courtroom right now. I was at Kaitie's with Josh, Jake, Chris, and John. We were swimming right now, playing Marco Polo like children. She really was trying to get this off my mind, and even though summer just started and I should be happy. I'm not. I'm just not able to have fun today. We left the pool and got dressed into pjs. "Alright, movie or childish games?" Kaitie asked holing up a game board and a movie. "Movie." Everyone replied. She popped the disc in and we all sat together on a large couch, huddled together like the best friends we are. In the middle of the movie my phone rang. I excused myself and went to pick it up with Josh close behind me. I looked at the caller ID. My mom. Time to face the truth.
