Chapter 9

I blinked as a car stopped in front of me. Caleb came out of the car and rounded it as he stood by my side. "What the fuck, Belle?" He growled. "Why in god's name are you here?!" He snapped.

I flinched and took a step backward. "I'm sorry. C-Can you please get me home?" I whispered tiredly.

"What the fuck is that?!" He yelled and pointed at my neck and chest. I looked down to see I had hickeys on me, I just covered them with my hair.

"Nothing!" I yelled back.

"You were with a guy. And you reek of alcohol. I can't believe you snuck out to go be a whore!" He screamed in my face I just stood there, shocked. Whore? Because I wanted a night out with my friends, free from you? Of course, I was a whore.

"I'm sorry." I whispered.

"What is it?" He asked, I opened my mouth to speak but he interrupted me. "Did he fuck you then, threw you out? Is that it? Are you sad, you were used?!" He growled as his eyes had darkened in anger. What the fuck?

"You know what? Forget it, this was a mistake." I mumbled and walked past him. I can't believe him; can't he see I've been crying? Can't he see the other marks on my arms? Of course, being clouded by jealousy does this to you. Wait, he can't be jealous, can he?

"Where the hell, do you think, you're going!" He shouted as my wrist was grabbed and I was turned around. He held onto my arms and glared down at me.

"Caleb, please I just want to go home." I begged as a tear escaped my eye. He removed a piece of hair and put it behind my ear as he examined me. He ran a finger over my cheek as I involuntary closed my eyes.

"What happened?" He whispered. I opened my eyes and stared at him in confusion.

"What?" I asked.

"Your cheek why is it red?" He asked. I went to pull away and see if it hurt but his hold on me tightened. "Tell me." He demanded and looked at me.

"I-I..." I trailed off. And looked over his shoulder at the lights a few miles away. "Can we please just go home?" I begged again.

"No. You tell me what happened then we go home." He growled.

"I was at a party, and then took some shots." I sighed and looked up. "I was dancing with this guy and for some reason, I agreed to go up in his room." His hold tightened against my arms making me wince. "After I realized what was about to happen, I told him to stop, but he wouldn't." I whimpered as I shook from the cold. "So, I bite his hand, and then he slapped me." I finished.

"Fuck, Belle. Why would you leave and go to a dumb party!" He growled and pulled me into his chest hugging me.

"I just wanted to have fun." I whispered in his chest as I wrapped my arms around his waist. He pulled me away and stared down at me in anger. "Which won't happen again." I added and smiled making him nod.

"Good." He said and pulled me into his chest again. After a few minutes, he pulled away and started removing his jacket dropping it over my shoulders. "Let's get you home." He stated.

"Okay." I agreed, he opened the car door for me and helped me in.

"What was this guy's name?" He asked as he held the door open and strapped me.

"Josh," I stated in confusion. He nodded and placed a kiss on my cheek.

"Stay here." He stated and closed the door. I stared in confusion as he started walking away. When I went to open the door and see where he was going, the car locked making me gasp. What the fuck?! Don't tell me he's going there.

I bite down on my lip and leaned against the seat. There's no point in trying to worry. I couldn't get out, and there's no way I'm going back there.


I was pissed that Belle had sneaked out, but I could see there was something wrong with her. Her eyes showed fear and her body shook. I admit it, I did let the jealousy get the best of me. But now that I know what really happened to her there's no way that I won't do something about it. I walked towards the house where music was coming from. I saw teenagers in the front yard making out and grinding against each other. Kids now.

I pushed the front door open and entered the house. I saw a few bimbos looking at me in lust before they turned away and started giggling. I rolled my eyes at that, but maybe they could help me. So, I smirked and gestured with my hand for them to come here.

"Hey, handsome." A blonde one whispered seductively.

"Hey." I deadpanned. "There's someone I'm looking for. I'm looking for a guy named Josh?" I asked; they nodded and pointed towards a blonde asshole that was laughing with his friends. I walked towards the asshole that was so busy explaining somethings causing everyone to laugh.

"And then she started begging me to fuck her!" He said causing everyone to laugh.

"Man, who knew Annabelle was so desperate for dick." Another one smirked making them laugh again. I fisted my fist ready to punch the fucker. I stalked towards them and grabbed the blonde's shoulder turning him towards me. My fist connected with his face making a loud cracking sound be heard as blood started dripping down his nose. He screamed in pain as his friends stared at me in shock.

"Let me tell you, my side of the story asshole!" I growled and punched him again. "When a woman says no. It's a fucking no!" I shouted while glaring at him, my heart was beating so fast from the adrenaline and the anger, all I wanted to do was kill this asshole, for laying his hands on my girl. I realized the music had stopped playing and everyone was looking at us.

"Do you understand?!" With each word that I spoke, I landed another punch to his face. I knew my knuckles were going to hurt like a bitch tomorrow. But I didn't care, there's no way I'd let something like this happen to Belle and let those fuckers turn the blame on her.

Once he dropped on the ground unconscious I moved to the other guy. Now that I had a good look at him, I realized it was that fucker, Trevor that used to date Belle and then moved onto the next girl which was her best friend.

I grabbed him by the collar and pulled him towards me. "You're going to come to the house tomorrow." I growled making his eyes widen as his face started paling in fright. "You will apologies to her and tell her what an asshole you are." I gritted through my teeth. He quickly nodded and tried to pull away.

I tightened my hold on him causing him to wince. Seconds later his scream danced through the quiet house as my fist collided with his face. "I'll see you tomorrow." I stated and looked at him in warning. If he as much as dared to disobey me, I'll look for him, and trust me I will find him.

When I started making my way towards the front door, everyone took a step backward splitting apart making a way for me. I smirked as I walked out of the house. I fastened my pace, as I walked towards the car. I opened the driver's door and got in. "Okay, now we can go home-" I paused when I saw Belle peacefully sleeping.

My heart skipped a beat when I saw the dried tears on her cheeks. I should've killed that fucker. I still needed to know what exactly happened in there. Once I find out, I'll be back, after all, I know where the fucker lives. I removed a strand of hair from her forehead and leaned over placing a kiss on it.

I sighed and leaned against the seat. What was I doing? I'm with her mother, who I claim that I loved. But here I am in the middle of the night picking up Belle. I was lucky enough Violet, had to leave earlier because otherwise, I wouldn't be able to come. I stopped breathing when she slightly shifted in her seat.

I turned the car on and started driving towards the house. I wish I wouldn't have those feelings for my stepdaughter. It's like, I'm drawn to her. Maybe it's her little attitude or the way she acts hard to get. But I haven't been able to get her off my mind recently.

Thirty minutes later, I pulled up into our driveway. I parked the car in the garage and got out of it. I rounded the car and pulled the door open as I stared at Belle. Picking her up and making sure I had her in a comfortable position, I closed the door with my foot.

I had trouble with opening the door that leads to the house, but after a minute I somehow finally opened it. Belle snuggled more into my chest making me look down at her. She was so beautiful. If only I had met her first.

Whatever was going on with me, I hoped it went away soon. I couldn't have both of them, and it was sick, to want my girlfriend's daughter. Belle is way younger than me and out of my league. She wasn't ready to commit.

"Caleb?" I heard her whisper as I climbed the stairs. I looked down at her and smiled.

"Yes?" I asked, she only shook her head and snuggled it into my neck. I chuckled and continued making my way towards her room.

"C-Can you please, stay with me?" She asked after a minute. I clenched my jaw and acted as if I didn't hear her. "Please?" she begged on the verge of tears. I tightened my hold on her, how could I say no to her?

I opened her bedroom door and placed her on her bed, turning around I walked back to the door closing it, I locked the door in case Violet came back. Feeling her eyes on me, I turned around and stared at her. "Do you need help getting undressed?" I ask and walk towards her. She nodded and sat up stretching her hands above her head.

I chuckled as I grabbed the hem of her dress. I was sad I couldn't admire the way she was dressed because she looked sexy as fuck, but I guess I wasn't going to get pleasure tonight, not that I was complaining. I pulled it over her head and kept my eyes on her face as she crossed her arms over her chest, hiding her boobs.

I sat up and pulled my shirt over my head and handed it to her. She looked at me in confusion before slowly stretching her arm and grabbing it. After she put it on, she laid down and pulled the covers to her neck. She looked so damn cute as she stared, waiting for my next move.

I cleared my throat and went to the other side of the bed sitting on it. I looked at her, "Will you tell me what exactly happened?" I asked. She looked away and frowned.

I watched as she turned around and snuggled deeper into the covers. "Tomorrow." I heard her whisper. I sighed and sat up undoing my pants and letting them fall on the ground. I sat back down and took them off folding them. I laid down on the bed and pulled the covers over me.

A second later, she turned around and snuggled into my chest. I looked at the ceiling for a second before I wrapped my arm around her and pulled her closer, placing a kiss on her head. There's no going back now.
