Chapter 52


We both cried and held onto each other for a long time after Lola told me about the night her father died. We must’ve been there for over an hour. I kept running what she had told me tonight and in the past through my head. Her brother Lucas’ story was heartbreaking. Their dad would beat him and then tried to rape him with a broomstick. Once he was finally free of that evil man he went into foster care where the foster father preyed on him and raped him. Once Lola found out and stopped it, well it was too late. Lucas ended up killing himself and Lola lived through all of that alongside him. No wonder she cared about Tomás and Tessa so much.

I wondered if this was what Lola was hiding from me; that she killed her father. Or if there was something else. Whatever it was I knew she had her reasons, and I was okay with that.

“Can we go to your house?” Lola asks with a broken look on her face.

“Sure,” I softly reply.

As I drive towards my house, I go over what had just happened with that Will guy. I felt like a piece of shit for staying in the car. At the moment it made sense, both Lola and Brian told me to stay there. That me getting involved would make it worse. But he tried to rape her while I sat in the car 6 feet away. What kind of loser did that?

“Sorry, all I did was sit in the car. I should have gotten out and helped you.” I say. I can’t not bring this up, I should have done something, Lola deserves better.

“No Cade you did the right thing. I know it seems like getting out would have helped but trust me it would have made it worse. Will wanted me to do something so he could arrest me. If you got out of the car and attacked him, he would have had us both sent to jail. The way it happened was the best. That guy wants to make me pay for my father’s death. Now he’ll get fired and won’t be able to physically overpower me until his knee heals, which will be a long time.” Lola replies.

“Still, I feel useless, what kind of guy just sits there?” I say.

“The kind that trusts me,” Lola counters.

“I guess, I just don’t feel right about it, you deserve someone who can help you,” I explain.

“I get that but please stop blaming yourself. The fact that you trust me enough to wait even though I’m in danger says a lot. You know that I know what I’m doing and that’s what I need. You have no idea how much I appreciate you and the fact you trust me.” Lola continues. I take in her words and begin to see her point of view.

“Why didn’t you kill him?” I ask changing the topic.

“I think he wanted me too. He wants me sent to jail; he could get the guards to torture me that way. Plus, I didn’t know if Brian would cover for me. And honestly, I didn’t want you to see me as a murderer. But now you do so,” Lola says letting her words trail off.

“No, I don’t,” I argue.

“You should, my dad isn’t the only person I’ve killed. The guy who raped Lucas, I killed him. All the men who kidnaped and raped me, I killed them. I have even killed men for the cartel. I’m not incident. It was never self-defense so don’t make excuses,” Lola states with finality.

“Okay, you’re a murderer then, but honestly that doesn’t change how I feel about you. Like I said before every single time you made those choices there was a good reason that I tend to agree with,” I argue my point.

At that Lola takes my hand in hers. “I don’t know why you think I’m good, but I’m too selfish to try to change that,” Lola whispers.

“I don’t think you change how I see you, no matter what you tell me,” I reply while giving her hand a squeeze.

The rest of the way to my house is silent. When we arrive we head inside and to my room. It’s past 11 so everyone who was home has gone to bed.

As soon as I step into my room Lola starts to roughly kiss me. I respond and slowly back her against the wall. She runs her fingers down my back and then lifts my shirt up. I help her take it off and then I kiss down her neck.

I begin to lift her shirt up, as I do so I look at her face and she nods. After I remove her shirt, I slowly kiss up her stomach. I stop when I reach her breasts. I cup one with my hand and start to kiss the top that is exposed from her bra. I run my other hand around to her back and undo her bra. She lets it slide to the floor as I continue to kiss her breasts.

Lola gives me a light push and takes my hand. She leads me towards the bed and sits down on the edge. She pulls me towards her and starts to roughly kiss me again. When she pulls away, she whispers, “make me forget about Will and what he tried to do.”

I nod happily agreeing to this request. Lola starts feverishly kissing me again. I respond and use my hands to unzip her skirt. She helps me pull it off of her. I step back and gaze at her on my bed, completely nude. She’s gorgeous and I can’t believe I’ve gotten so lucky to have her, all of her in my life.

“Lye down,” I instruct. Lola complies and lays down with her head on my pillow. I craw onto the bed and kneel beside her.

“Let me know if what I’m doing is okay,” I say starting to get nervous. I’ve never done this before and I want to be able to please her. I watch her nod, so I begin to kiss her. I start at her mouth and then move down her body. I take my time when I reach her breast giving both equal attention. Then I start to descend down her stomach. When I reach her hip, I look up. She makes eye contact with me and nods in approval.

I move so I’m kneeling between her legs. I start to kiss up her legs until I get to her crotch. I start by lightly kissing her folds. As I gain a bit more confidence I start to lick and use one of my hands. She moans as I lick her clit which makes me smirk a little. I continue my actions and begin rubbing her clit while licking her.

“Oh god, that feels good,” she says so I keep going, slowly speeding up. As I’m rubbing and licking, I feel her tense and then begin to twitch. Lola lets out a series of moans. I slow down and let her ride out the orgasm. Once she is still, I get up and look at her face. She has a big smile and pats the bed next to her. I follow her instructions as crawl up so I’m beside her. “That was great,” Lola says shyly and I smirk at her.

I glance at her, she looks exhausted. I get out of bed and grab my shirt; I hand it to her, so she has something to wear to bed. She gives me a questioning look.

“Don’t you want me to,” she says trailing off while gesturing towards me.

“I’m good, get some rest, you look exhausted,” I say. I mean I’d like to do more but we are both spent, and she’s been through a lot tonight. I’m more than happy to cuddle and fall asleep.

“Okay, come lay with me then,” Lola says with a yawn.

I kick off my pants so I’m in only my boxers and jump in beside her. I hold her tight and kiss her forehead.

“I love you,” I whisper.

“I love to Cade, goodnight,” Lola replies while her eyes slowly close.

A few moments later I can tell that she is already asleep. As I hold her, I think back to what we just did. I’m surprised that I enjoyed it so much. Bringing Lola pleasure and being there for her made me feel amazing. I fell asleep thinking about all the things I wanted to do with Lola in the future.

The next morning, I wake up next to Lola. She’s still sound asleep. I decide to let her sleep in. I head downstairs after getting dressed. As I walk through the hall, I hear my dad talking to my mom. I stop and listen where they can’t see me.

“I’ve looked her up, she been through a hell of a lot. I think that’s why she’s so good for him. She knows what it’s like to be the black sheep and go through hell.” My dad says.

“I like her. I’m so glad he’s found someone good for him. For so long I was worried that he was going to end up killing himself.” My mom says.

“Me too, I’m glad you’ve decided to get help too. I think that makes a big difference for Cade.” My father says. I hear him leave the room, so I go into the kitchen. Hopefully, they didn’t notice my eavesdropping.

“Morning Hunny, is Lola up yet?” My mom asks when she sees me.

“No, she’s still asleep. Where’s Tomás?” I ask.

“In the old playroom.”

“Okay, I’m going to play with him until Lola’s up. Can you come to get me when she comes down?” I ask.

“Yeah, of course. Hey, Cade before you leave, I just want to say I’m so proud of you. To be able to be such a good person after everything you’ve been through is an amazing thing.” My mom replies.

“Ugh, thanks,” I shyly say.

With that, I go and find Tomàs. I spend the rest of my day hanging out with Lola and Tomás. I even hold Tessa for a while as she slept. Overall, it was a great day.

The events of yesterday seemed to strengthen our relationship. It was liked Lola needed to know that I was okay with things she had done in her past. The whole day she seemed happier than she ever had. I was glad she told me but angry about the man who led to the conversation. I wondered what would happen to that Will guy. Would he try something else, or would he leave Lola alone? I guess I’d just have to wait and see, which I didn’t like but I had no idea what else I could do to help.
