Chapter 6

*With No One To Talk To. And No One To Hold Me. I’m Not Always Strong. Oh, I Need You Here. Are You Listening?*

<3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

"Eric, you really shouldn’t drink another one." I warned. He looked at the un-opened can and sighed.

"Yeah. You’re right." He set it down on the ground. He was drunk. Kind of. Not sober, but not completely drunk. I sighed and leaned back against him as we watched some old movie on TV.

"You’re really pretty today Seri’." He smiled.

He tried to kiss me but I pushed him away. I wasn’t much for that kind of physical contact at all.

He tried again.

"Eric! Knock it off!"

"Come on we have been going out for a year now!" He winced as he kept trying to kiss me.

His expression darkened as I got up and headed toward the door. He got up after me and shoved me against the wall and started kissing my neck and trying to unzip my jacket.

"Get the hell off me Eric!" I shoved him away and he walked into a bowl of water he had sitting out for his dog. I stood there expressionless as he let out a string of profanities. He got back up to me and slapped me across the face.

I stood there, shocked. He got this really weird look on his face and looked at me.

"Oh, my God Seirnali . I’m so sorry. I-I didn’t mean to-I just-I’m so sorry!" He put his palm where he hit me.

He was drunk. He didn’t mean to. I slightly smiled.

"I know Eric. It’s ok. I forgive you." I replied.

"I promise it will never happen again. I love you. So much." He smiled.

I believed every, single, word.

I woke up. Startled. I very rarely remembered that day in whole. I sighed and laid my head back against the back of the couch.

I froze when I realized I wasn’t laying on the back of the couch.

Alexander had his legs on the table in front of him and was laying somewhat diagonally on the couch. I, on the other hand, had my head on his chest and the rest of me was laying in the empty space on the couch.

"Calm down. Don’t fall off the couch now." He laughed and looked down at me.

"Sorry…" I murmured.

"You’re fine. Stop freaking out."

I didn’t know what to do so I just laid my head back down and stared at the back of the couch. I tried to count the rows of thread in the fabric, but I got tremendously bored. I sighed and turned myself around so that I was watching the TV.

I didn’t really hear what they were saying on the TV. I was to engrossed in my own thoughts. Particularly my dream. That was just the beginning of the horrible months that followed. I had never told anyone. Ever. What he did to me. I would just lie and cover up the evidence.

Of course, I wanted to tell someone. But, I could never do it without bringing the gaping pain back. So I left it locked up in the back of my head where it haunted me every day.

I felt him kiss the top of my head. I smiled inwardly.


Maybe I would tell someone.
