Chapter 4
*I’m Lost Inside The Crowd! It’s Getting Loud! I Need You To See, I’m Screaming For You To Please Hear Me.*

I ended getting most of my clothes that I liked, my four books, my laptop, and a few other things. I got done putting my clothes into the dresser and stood there after I closed the drawer and sighed.

“You done?” He popped his head into the room and looked at me. I nodded in reply and he walked in.

I stayed where I was at the dresser and continued thinking. Unfortunately he had to interrupt me by putting his arms around my waist and putting his chin on my shoulder. I tensed up and grinded my teeth.

“We really have to talk about the whole ‘don’t touch me’ concept.” I said glaring at the wall.

“Why do you hate me?” He inquired again.

“I don’t hate you.” I stated apathetically.

“Then why do you freak out if I touch you?!”

“It’s not you. I do that to everyone.”


I thought why.

I had been crushed by Eric. He practically ruined my life. It started out fine. I loved him so much. But, he went and slowly starting ruining it.

I loved him though. The whole time. Even when he would hit and me and apologize and promise he would never do it again.

I believed him and forgave him. But he broke the promise as soon as me made it.
I could feel the pained expression on my face. I was used to it by now. I had thought about him so much I had become numb to the pain.

I was broken into a million little pieces never to be put back together again.

“I swear Abby, I’m never going to trust another guy again. I am never going to fall in love again.” I sobbed into my best friend’s shoulder.
I thought back to when I sat on her couch and cried all day. She was there with me the whole time.

I could feel him putting his finger under my chin and forcing me to look at him.

He was a pain in the ass, but then again, he was nice.

“Are you sure you don’t want to tell me?” His eyes looked pleading.

“No. I’m fine. Really. I am.” He didn’t look convinced.

I was having a hard time convincing myself lately.

“Are you sure?” He inched his face closer to mine and I could feel his breath on my cheeks. I was getting very uncomfortable.

I hadn’t had this much physical contact since, well, Eric. And I didn’t really like it then either. Mainly, I was afraid of being hurt. Both physically and emotionally. I don’t think I could take much more of either one.

“What… what are you doing?” I asked shakily. His lips were pressed against my ear by the time he spoke again.

“Nothing.” He replied calmly while I was on the brink of panic.
Then, to make matters worse, he started kissing down my neck. I was panicking now. He put his hands on my hips and softly pushed me against the dresser. I was afraid of where this would lead.

“Please. Stop.” I managed to say. He paused and looked at me apologetically.


I couldn’t tell if he meant it or not. I had lost my ability to trust people. He took his hands off my waist and backed away from me and walked out into the living room and I heard the TV being turned on.

I decided I would stay in here where I was safe. I walked over to the bed and pulled out my laptop and plugged my headphones in and slipped into my slice of peace and happiness.

I listened to my usual music. Depressing music. Or slow music that sounded sad but it really wasn’t. I pulled up a game of solitaire and zoned out not really listening to the music at all.
I thought about what just happened. Honestly, being held again was…nice. I shied away from it for six months. But, I wasn’t sure I wanted to let my guard down and have everyone hugging me, and touching me again.

I sighed in frustration and put my head in my hands.

Oh, s***. I think I like him.
