Chapter 13

I heard angry footsteps coming from behind me. I picked up my pace knowing it was Dimitri. Dimitri soon caught up to me and grabbed my arm roughly, pulling me back into him. “What the hell is wrong with you? What the fuck was that for?” He hissed and I angrily shook myself out of his arms, glaring up at him.

The only reason I glared at him was because I honestly didn’t have an answer for him. What was I supposed to say? That I didn’t like it when he kissed Shauna but I didn’t like him either so it made no sense for me to be angry. Yeah, I wasn’t going to say that. “Well?” He asked impatiently.

I sighed, lowering my eyes in defeat. I shrugged my shoulders. “I don’t know. I’m just being stupid. I’m sorry.” I said quietly. Dimitri stayed quiet for a few long seconds before slowly letting go of my arm.

“Did you come to eat ice cream with me?” He asked and I nodded my head.

I looked up at him and noticed his eyes already locked onto my face. “But then you were with Shauna.” I said. “Dimitri, why don’t you just let me and all the girls go? Please Dimitri! You hate me anyways and I hate you, so why bother keeping someone you hate? And as for the other girls, what are you gaining? In fact, what do you gain from killing all those people?”

“I gain satisfaction.” He replied coldly causing me to shiver.

“Satisfaction for what?” I asked and he shook his head.

“Please don’t ask that.” He said looking away from me. A distant, almost sad look stretched across his face before a deep scowl set in. It didn’t seem like he enjoyed killing very much. Then why’d he do it?

“Fine, I won’t. But please think about letting us all go. We’re miserable here! At least I know I am. I’ve been separated from all the people I dearly love. Just imagine how it would feel for you if you were separated from your family. Your mom and dad would be worried sick-” He put his hand up, silencing me.

“That’s enough. I get it. But I can’t let you go. Ever. You’re staying here, whether you like it or not.” He emotionlessly spoke.

I nodded my head, accepting my defeat once more. I tried not to let the sadness show out on my face but I’m sure it still seeped through. “Thank you anyways.” I said, my voice barely audible. I didn’t even know why I was thanking him, just that it seemed appropriate.

I turned to walk away when Dimitri grabbed my arm, stopping me in my tracks. I turned my head to look at him. “I’m sorry, Isabella.” He said and I nodded my head, walking away. I could feel his gaze on me the whole time as I walked down the hallway.

As I turned right, I bumped hard into someone. I looked up and it was Stark. “Sorry.” I mumbled before I made it to side step him.

“Wait.” He said as he grabbed onto my arm to stop me. “Can you please help me with Shauna? I know you already denied me but please! I really like her.” He said and I rolled my eyes. Of course everyone would go after her, even knowing she wasn’t someone you get into relationships with. But whatever, I’d help him. It’ll hopefully get my mind off of my parents and wanting to go home. “Fine.” I said and he fist-pumped in happiness. “I really don’t like her, so this might be very hard.”

“As long as it’ll eventually happen, I’m okay with it.” He said and I rolled my eyes again.

“I wish you the best of luck bud. Believe me, you’re going to need it.” I said before walking away, not bothering to wait for a response from him.

I walked down the hallway to my bedroom. Once I reached it, I heard whimpering. I quickly walked inside to find Thomas sitting in a corner crying. “Thomas!” I exclaimed when I noticed a bright red mark on his cheek. “What happened?” I asked gathering him into my arms.

“Nothing.” He said, quickly wiping his tears away, trying to smile to show me he was okay.

I narrowed my eyes at him. “Don’t lie to me Thomas. Good boys don’t lie and I know you’re a good boy so tell me the truth. Why were you crying? And why do you have a red mark on your cheek?”

He shook his head in fear. Someone did that to him. Someone slapped him. I knew it. “Who slapped you, Thomas? I want an answer right now.” I demanded sternly.

“She said she’ll k-kill me if I tell anyone that she slapped me.” He said making me really angry at hearing that.

“It was Shauna wasn’t it?” I demanded and Thomas’s silence let me know it was her. “Oh I’m so going to hurt that bi-” I caught myself before swearing in front of Thomas. But I was so going to ruin that bitch. How dare she lay a hand on Thomas?

I hugged Thomas to me, gently rubbing his red cheek. I kissed his forehead before carrying him with me out the door. I found Devon and told him to watch Thomas for me. “What happened to his cheek?” He asked in surprise.

“Shauna.” I bitterly replied before I walked away towards Dimitri’s room because the bitch was most likely in there.

I slammed the door open. I was not going to spare this bitch at all. This time Dimitri and Shauna were laying on the bed, aggressively making out. I stalked into his room and towards his bed. “Get off of her, Dimitri!” I yelled in my loudest voice. They both stopped and looked at me in surprise. I guess they weren’t expecting me to be back again.

“Get the fuck off of the bitch right now or else!” I threatened and I did sound quite intimidating, if I did say so myself. I guess that’s what anger did to you.

Dimitri was surprised at my tone and slowly moved away from Shauna. “What’s wrong now Isabella?” He asked.

“This bitch is what’s wrong.” I said as I yanked hard on her arm, making her fall off the bed and hit the ground with a hard thump. Before she could respond, I grabbed her face and slapped her hard, leaving a satisfying red handprint on her skin. “That’s what you get for thinking you can get away with slapping a child!” I yelled. She cried out in pain and then started swearing at me. She then brought her fists up to swing back at my face but I was faster and grabbed her arms twisting them at weird angles, causing her to cry out in pain. She then kicked me in my stomach causing me to let go of her hands and fall back onto my back. Shauna then crawled towards me and swung a hard punch to my face causing me to whimper in pain. It felt like she broke my nose, and I could feel blood dripping out of it.

Dimitri then pulled Shauna away from me. She tried to struggle out of his arms to come and get me but Dimitri was so much stronger than her. I quickly scrambled to my feet and grabbed the lamp nearby when Dimitri wasn’t looking. I then brought it up to hit Shauna in the head when Dimitri moved, the lamp hitting him instead. The lamp was made of clear glass which I didn’t know because it didn’t look like glass at all and so it shattered. Shauna escaped out of his arms just as the lamp shattered on him. The glass came and hit us both in different places on our bodies. I hissed in pain as the glass scratched and cut me.

Shauna had left the room by then, while I was standing beside Dimitri whimpering in pain. My whole body hurt and my nose was screaming ‘broken’ at me. My cheeks were soaked with my tears caused by the horrible pain of a broken nose and the glass pieces that scratched and cut me, some even stuck in my flesh.

I felt Dimitri cautiously grab me from around my waist, picking me up in his arms, making sure to avoid my wounds. I noticed his cuts healing up as he brought me to the bathroom. By the time we reached his bathroom, all the cuts on his bare chest and back were gone and he was completely healed. I moaned in pain as he set me down onto the counter.

My eyes met his anger filled ones, causing me to look away. I couldn’t help but start sobbing at the pain I felt in my nose. I felt Dimitri gently grab my chin in his hand, pulling my face up so I was looking at him again. He grabbed a tissue and brought it to my nose to wipe the blood away. Just as the tissue touched my nose, I screamed out in pain. He immediately pulled the tissue away, pulling my face up higher so he could take a closer look at my nose. “Well, looks like your nose is broken.” He said with a frown. “See, this is what happens to impulsive girls like you.”

I wanted to scream at him. But I was in so much pain, I couldn’t find the energy to yell. His gaze swept down my body before he picked a piece of glass out of my arm. I yelped in pain. Blood started oozing down my arm and Dimitri quickly swiped it up with a tissue. “Did you really have to slap Shauna? Did you gain anything from it? Well, except for this pain.” He spoke in his annoying smart-ass voice. He even used my words against me which really pissed me off.

“You’re such a jerk.” I said with my pain-filled voice. The pain in my nose had numbed by now which was good, for now but the pain from the cuts was still there.

He ignored me as his hands rested on the collar of my shirt. In less than a second, he ripped my shirt off of me, causing me to gasp and bring my arms up to cover my bare chest. I wasn’t wearing a bra! “Are you freaking serious?” He hissed more to himself than me, when he realized I wasn’t wearing a bra.

“Why’d you rip my shirt?” I asked annoyed and embarassed. I didn’t feel comfortable at all having my torso being completely naked in front of him.

“Because it was easier to pick the shards out of your skin with your shirt off instead of working through the rips in your shirt. And I didn’t think you’d be completely... naked underneath.” He said, his voice faltering at the end. “Here take this piece of cloth and cover your.. um...” He looked so awkward that it would have been funny, if we were in a different situation. I took the cloth out of his hands, making sure to not look at him as I replaced my arms with the cloth, covering my bare chest up.

I then met his eyes and nodded my head before quickly looking away. He then rested his hands on my waist, softly feeling my sides up to find the shards. Once he found one, he yanked it out causing me to whimper in pain. He then continued on, feeling my stomach for the shards, picking them out one by one. I kept my eyes closed, loving the feel of his large hands roaming my body, yet hating the pain I felt everytime he pulled a shard out.

Once he was done, he rested his hand on my cheek making me open my eyes up. “I need to get the shards on your leg. Please tell me your wearing something underneath your pants.” He said and I nodded, saying I was. He then let go of my cheek and began to rip my pants off of my legs. He then picked at the shards. Once he was done with my legs, he made me press myself against his chest, so he could take the shards out of my back.

My hands and my cheeks were resting against his chest, when he pulled me even closer causing the piece of cloth to fall off my breasts. That made my breasts press up against Dimitri. I could feel him tense up for a few seconds when he felt them before he relaxed again and began taking the rest of the shards out.

Once he was done, I felt him bring his mouth up close to my ears. “I’m going to heal your cuts and your broken nose, just like I healed your hands earlier.”

“No!” I exclaimed, pulling away from him in fear. Realizing my breasts were bare and practically on full display for him to see, I grabbed his shoulders, pulling myself tight up against him. I heard him let out a groan causing me to blush furiously.

After a minute or two of complete silence, Dimitri spoke. “I’m going to heal you.” He said picking me up into his arms. I wrapped my arms around his neck, making sure to keep myself pressed against him so he couldn’t see my bare chest.

“No Dimitri. It hurts too much.” I complained but he shook his head.

“We have no choice. I have nothing to help you heal your cuts. No ointments or bandages since us demons heal ourselves. And we rarely get sick or anything so we don’t have any medical supplies like you humans do. My healing powers are the only thing that can help fix you.” He said as he walked up to his bed, sitting down.

“My cuts will heal by themselves. I don’t need any bandages.” I quickly said but then he mentioned that my nose wouldn’t heal by itself. I slumped against him in defeat. I had no choice but to experience the pain again. “I’m sorry, Isabella. If I had another option, I would have given it to you.” He said sincerely.

“Well you could always send me back to earth.” I replied hopefully, but unfortunately he shook his head.

“Anything but that.” He stated before he started instructing me in what I needed to do. “Wrap your arms around me and rest your head on my chest. I need to hold you down because this will most likely hurt more than your hands, since your broken bones need to be set back in place.” He said causing me to tense up in fear. But I did as he instructed anyways.

“Good girl.” He spoke softly as he gently pushed my hair away from my face. “I’ll try to make this as quick as possible, Isabella.” He said soothingly.

“I’m scared.” I said, my voice shaking. I was not ready to experience the hellish pain again. Especially knowing it was going to be worse than before. I couldn’t imagine the pain being worse, since it was unimaginably bad the last time.

“I know.” He sympathetically spoke. “If you want, you can hold my hand.” He said holding his left hand out to me. I gladly took it, happy I had something to hold onto and squeeze when the pain got too much to handle.

“Thank you.” I said and he nodded his head, stroking my hair once.

“Are you ready?” He asked, wrapping his right arm around my shoulders to keep me down and resting his right hand on my nose. I whimpered at the pain I already felt and mumbled out a yes. I closed my eyes, awaiting the terrible pain.

And soon I felt it, causing me to start screaming at the top of my lungs. I thrashed in his arms, trying to escape him but to no avail. The pain was definitely a hundred times worse this time and I kept willing myself to just pass out like last time so I didn’t have to feel it anymore. My throat was dry from the screaming and crying and my cheeks wet from my tears. But thankfully, I soon passed out, not having to feel the pain anymore.
