Chapter 40

3 days later… my sister Sophia and Michael begged me to talk to the cops about what happened to me, I had been thinking about it for a while and I decided it’s best for me to tell them what happened.

I sigh deeply as I see Mariska and Kelli walk into my hospital room since I kicked them out because I had an anxiety attack because I was so scared about what happened to me and I don’t want to have a flashback or trigger me…

I see Mariska sits down on the chair and Kelli is standing next to Mariska as I nodded to let them ask me.

“If something bothers you, stop us.” Mariska sees I nodded as she sighs deeply and she says, “Okay… tell us what happened to you from the beginning if you remember.”

I sigh deeply as I nodded and I say, “I remember when I got home from work, Michael told me that he was still at work, I didn’t respond to him… then I walked into my apartment where I live with Michael… and…” I pause to calm myself down and I continue to say, “I saw Henry was sitting on the couch, I froze because I didn’t know what should I do next… and I was so angry about why he was there.”

“Okay… I saw the pictures that you had a lot of bruise on your body… plus Henry raped you many times.” Kelli sees I nodded and she says, “Okay… continue.”

“I was really scared and freaked out, he destroyed everything at our apartment, I was crying hard because I was so scared… then I begged him to stop over and over again… then he grabbed me and threw me in his car and I was so scared… I didn’t have my phone with me because he threw my phone hard against the wall.” I let my tears fill up on my eyes as I sigh deeply and I say, “My body was hurting a lot because of him, then I was praying for myself to stop him and leave him but I was stuck… he said, ‘I’m so happy that you’re mine forever’, it gave me a chill… then we arrived at his old apartment and he threw me to his bed and tied me up, and he started fingering me…”

“Do you want to stop?” Kelli raises her eyebrows in concern as she sees I shake my head and she says, “Okay… go ahead.”

I nodded and I say, “Then I begged him to stop, he refused to listen, he hurt me so badly, then he started raping me for 3 times, I cried and then he left the room, I was still stuck in tied up, my arms and legs hurt so badly, then the second day, he yelled at me and he didn’t really give a fuck about me in pain… he said, ‘that what how I feel when I saw you are with Michael’… he kicked me on my stomach and ribs, harder… I screamed in pain… I was crying so hard; I was so angry and crying… he won’t give me food or drinks when I fucking begged him… he laughed and he didn’t really care.” I sigh deeply as I close my eyes for few seconds because I really want to cry so badly… I open my eyes as I see Mariska and Kelli looks at me with a worried look and I continue to say, “He forced me to suck his dick when I said no many times… he got so angry with me and he was so angry and yelled loud at me and he said, ‘I should’ve stayed strong with you but no you decided to be with Michael…’ then he raped me so hard, it caused me in so much pain.”

Mariska sighs deeply as she nodded and she says, “I’m so sorry… I know how you felt, but you can tell us about last day when Henry shot himself in front of you.”

I nodded as I sigh deeply and I say, “He raped me again, he yelled at me and he abused me then I was so weak because Henry refused to give me foods or drinks… then he grabbed his gun and he was crying because he wanted me back and I said, ‘No, because I love Michael’ and he screamed at me to shut up, I was crying… because I was so scared and I really thought I was going to die… then he put his gun on his head and he says, ’you will remember forever when I die.’ Then he shot himself, I screamed and cried… then Michael, Derek, and my dad came with a few cops, I begged Michael to take me off…”

“Then Michael brought you to the ambulance.” Mariska sees I nodded and she says, “Okay… thank you for answering our questions and share with your story about what happened.”

“No problem…” I smile weakly as I sigh deeply and I ask in a curious voice, “How do you guys know I went through so much…?”

“Because it does happen with me and someone that I really hate.” Mariska smiles weakly as she gets up from my hospital chair and she asks in a curious voice, “Do you want us to ask Michael to come back inside?”

“No… I think I want to be alone.” I smile softly as I see Mariska and Kelli nodded and they left.

I sigh deeply as I get up from my hospital bed and I walk out of my hospital room by myself, I think I really want to be alone…

After what happened to me, it hit me so hard and I didn’t expect that to happen to me, I was in so much pain and I wanted to die so badly because Henry did really broke my heart and damaged me… he didn’t really care about me, he just wanted to hurt me… I guess he won…

I walk around in the hospital building; I have my phone with me because maybe my sister Sophia or Michael or Maddison would calling me.

I feel a vibrate on my hand since I have my phone on my hand… I sigh deeply as I see Michael’s calling me, I press the answer button and I put my phone on my ear and I say, “Hi Michael.”

“Babe, are you okay?” Michael raises his eyebrows in concern and he says, “I came to your room, you weren’t there babe, I was so worried about you.”

“I’m okay… I’m just walking around…” I sigh deeply and I say, “I was really depressed and angry because of Henry…”

“Mariska and Kelli asked you for what happened… is it making you feel like trigger…?” Michael raises his eyebrows in concern.

“Yes.” I have a crack in my voice because I’m about to break down in tears.

“Where are you? I’m coming to meet you babe.” Michael walks to find me.

“Mike... I’m okay but—”

Michael shakes his head and he says, “Babe… please.”

I close my eyes for a few seconds as I sigh deeply and I say, “Okay… I’m near the cafeteria.”

“Okay babe, I’ll meet you there.” Michael hangs up on me.

I open my eyes as I walk toward the bench to sit down since I’m going to wait for Michael to come and sit down with me.


30 minutes later… I see Michael showed up and he sits down next to me as he smiles softly and he didn’t force me to bring up about what happened to me but I think we would have to talk about it one day…

“Hi babe.” Michael looks at me with a worried look and he asks in a curious voice, “Are you okay?”

I shake my head and I say, “No, not really.”

“Do you want to talk about it?” Michael raises his eyebrows in confusion.

“No.” I smile weakly as I put my head on Michael’s shoulder and I say, “I will tell you when I feel ready.”

“Okay babe… I’m just concerned about you.” Michael admits as he wraps his arm around my shoulder and he kisses my head and he says, “You know you can tell me everything babe.”

“I know… I mean if I tell you, you would be so angry and blame yourself for what happened to me, Mike.” I sigh deeply as I close my eyes after I let my tears falling down on my cheeks since I had my tears fill up on my eyes.

Michael pulls my chin up to look up at me and he says, “Babe, I’m going to be honest with you… I do blame myself for what happened to me. Because I was so angry, you know that. But I’m so thankful for you to be alive…”

“Me too…” I sigh deeply and I say, “I do want to let you hold me tightly and tell me everything will be okay… but I’m not ready…”

“It’s okay… no rush babe.” Michael smiles softly as he puts his thumb to wipe my tears away.

I smile softly as I nodded.

I’m so thankful for Michael to be there for me no matter what, I think I am in love with him more…

“You ready to go back to your room?” Michael raises his eyebrows in confusion as he sees I nodded and he says, “But you need to eat something.”

“Michael, I’m okay.” I shrug as I sigh deeply and I say, “I just am not hungry.”

“Ana—”

“No… I’m okay… I promise.”

“Fine… I’ll bring you food to your room.” Michael sighs in disappointment.

I wince softly when I heard his voice was disappointed… I want to eat something but I’m not really hungry…


30 minutes later… we arrived at my hospital room after we grab food since I didn’t want to eat anything but Michael was so stubborn when he bought our food from the cafeteria.

“I guess you didn’t listen to me.” I sigh deeply as we walk into my hospital room and I see Michael looks at me with a glaring look and I ask in an annoyed voice, “What?”

“Henry didn’t give you food or drinks for damn 4 days.” Michael sighs deeply and he says, “You almost died, Anastasia!”

“I know that, Michael!” I snap as I see Michael sighs deeply and I say, “I was so scared because I didn’t know what will happen to me!”

“Okay… I’m sorry okay?”

“I know.” I mumble softly as I sit down on my hospital bed and I say, “I just…”

“You what?” Michael sits down on my hospital bed next to me.

“I’m scared…”

“Why?”

“Because you would leave me again and maybe someone would kidnap me and kill me again.” I admit as I sigh deeply and I see Michael looks at me with a sad look and I say, “Yeah, I’m fricking scared!”

“Babe, I do understand that you’re scared, honey… I do freaking understand.” Michael sighs deeply.

“I just want my old life back.” I mumble softly as I grab my blanket and I say, “I wish Henry wasn’t my boyfriend because he hurt me so badly and it would trauma me forever…

“Do you know I wish I can do it for you, babe?” Michael looks at me with a sad look.

“I know… I can see your face, Mike.” I smile weakly.

“Go eat…” Michael sees I am about to eat my lunch; I need to eat something before I pass out.

“Thank you.”

“For?”

“Being here for me.” I smile softly as I finish eating my pasta and I say, “I am glad you’re here with me.”

“Good.” Michael smiles softly.

I smile back.
