31 | a "LEAVE ME ALONE" sort of deal

Melanie:


I WATCHED FROM THE CORNER OF THE ROOM SILENTLY ASSESSING THE SITUATION, I could see the tears running down Elliot’s face as his shoulders shake slightly but I could tell the tears were relieved tears and not tears of pain

“Elliot there gone now your okay your okay,” I tell him softly as I walk closer to him, I could see the pain in his brown eyes that often looked green in certain lights, when he was giving those three names over to the police he looked both terrified and relieved and now once again he was battling with those emotions

He peered up at me the pain shining as bright as the sun in his eyes and he shook his head meekly as he whispered “No” he looked both physically and mentally broken and drained. His face was swollen up like a balloon and the cuts on his face had blood dripping from them, his limbs were tied up in a cast and were elevated to keep the blood pressure flowing to his legs at least that was what the nurses told me since I was the one to ring the ambulance and the couldn’t get hold of Elliots immediate family just yet although they claimed to still be trying

I perched on the end of the hospital bed and reached out to him this time he made no protest and let my fingers carefully and slowly wrap around his fat swollen ones that had been blown up “Why were you scared of identifying those jerks El, they beat you up!?” I ask him to which he meekly shakes his head not wanting to go into it but I found him lying half dead on the floor bleeding out so I let go of his hand as anger bubbles inside of me, I was sick of everyone thinking I could just be a girl that helped them forget about their own shitty realities not realising that I had my own twisted reality

He needs to give me answers

“NO I’M NOT HAVING THIS! YOU GOTTA TELL ME WHAT HAPPENED BECAUSE I FOUND YOU LYING IN AN ALLEYWAY HALF DEAD AND BLEEDING OUT AND IF I HADN’T BEEN WALKING BACK TO THE MOTEL SO LATE AT NIGHT YOU WOULD PROBABLY BE DEAD AND EVER SINCE I MET YOU BACK IN THE STREET AFTER THE ARGUMENT WITH MY PARENTS AFTER THEY KICKED ME OUT YOU’V BEEN NOTHING MORE THAN A MYSTERIOUS GUY HIDING BEHIND A MASK AND I’M SICK OF IT ! I NEED YOU TO TELL ME THE TRUTH!” I shout at him and for a minute Elliot looks shocked that is before he looks down at his hands and starts to bawl

With the one hand that wasn’t tied up in a cast, Elliot gripped his hair and pulled hard and he continued to do so until I couldn’t watch him tear his hair out anymore and I gently put my hand up and moved it on to his gently encasing his hand in my own but he just shook me off and glared at me bloodlust radiating in his eyes as he gave me his own version of the screaming match we were currently locked in “I DON’T KNOW WHAT YOU ARE ON ABOUT PHILIPS LOOK I HIDE BEHIND A SO CALLED MASK BECAUSE IF I DIDN’T PEOPLE THAT I CARED ABOUT WOULD GET HURT AND I CAN’T HAVE THAT ON MY CONSCIOUS PHILIPS -- I DON’T WANT ANYONE’S BLOOD ON MY HANDS BECAUSE I CANT HAVE THEM BEAT UP LIKE I WAS TODAY! SO JUST LEAVE ME ALONE AND DON’T TALK TIME AGAIN YOUR THE PRINCESS AND I’M THE DRUGGIE WE LIVE IN TWO SEPARATE WORLDS AND AS SOON AS YOU OPEN YOUR EYES AND SEE THAT THE BETTER BECAUSE THEN I CAN MOVE ON WITH MY LIFE AND I DON’T HAVE TO BABYSIT ‘THE DARLING OF NEW YORK’” Elliot bellowed and as soon as he finished he stopped crying and his face turned hard and stoic as he pointed to the door a signal for me to leave

I didn’t waste any time in doing so after all his words hit me hard and had affected me deeply so much so I run out the side private room that Elliot was given without so much than a second glance in his direction and what hurt more I think was the fact that he didn’t call after me

I slowed down to a fast paced walk seen as I can run long distances without feeling like I’m going to pass out thanks to the unborn babies and my pregnancy but luckily for me I had entered my second trimester which meant my nausea and morning sickness had lessened but on the downside I was experiencing more pain in my back and legs and I needed to go to the toilet more thanks to the unborn babies thinking my bladder was a pillow as he or she often liked to sleep on it. I was getting bigger too, gaining more weight and since I was carrying twice the baby weight (because I was having two) so in the middle of my first trimester I was already in maternity clothing and looking like a beached whale

Of course, I had asked Dr Ross all about this at my latest appointment about a week ago and the bits I still had questions about or the little things that confused me I Googled or watched endless YouTube video’s from mom’s who had go through the same thing, granted they were all older than me -- well, there were a few my age or younger you just needed to know where to look

Since the colder weather was upon us and I didn’t have a home to go back to and I don’t really want to go back to the motel right now not until I had calmed down and didn’t want to curl into a fetal position and bawl my eyes out I decided to go to Starbucks grab a coffee and hopefully wait the colder weather out
