Minutes later, I began to hear the sirens, the doctors came in and took her away. I didn't know when or how but I was hugging Vanessa as she wept like a child.
"He wasn't supposed to be home, we were supposed to watch a movie together and..." She trailed off and I placed a finger on her lips.
"It's okay." She sobbed, her heart clearing breaking. I stared at her father and clenched my fists.
"The worse part is that she won't press charges, she's scared of him, she just wanted to see me. He wasn't supposed to be home." She sobbed harder and I held her. I tried to keep my anger at Bay but it was hard.
"Skylar, my mom..." She was breaking apart. Then, she got out of my grip and rushed to him. She swiped the tears from her cheeks with a small sniff.
"I promise you, you will pay for this, I'll make sure of it!" She threatened and he scoffed. He shoved her away and she fell to the ground. That was all in took for me to break, I rushed to face him .
"Skylar please." Her voice cracked at the end, I glared at him. I rushed to her, her knee was hurt and bleeding.
"Come on, let's go." I carried her.
"Come back here Nessa!" He exclaimed.
"My name is Vanessa." She spat out urging me to get her out of here.
"I wanna see my mom." She cooed, I nodded. Since she was injured, we had to use her car. I dropped her at the back seat and entered the driver's to head to the hospital. Tears were still streaming down her cheeks and I understood her perfectly.
On getting to the hospital, i carried her and they treated her knee. Surprisingly, she told them she slipped her fell.
"You're wondering why I didn't tell the?" She asked noticing the expression on my face.
"Yes but it's okay if you don't...."
"I know I told him he would pay but doing it is a different thing entirely, call me weak but still...." She trailed off as we walked to her room.
"Hey, it's okay. What room?"
"Room 40, there it is." She pointed, I twisted the knob letting her walk ahead of me.
Her mom was laying on the bed thankfully stable, the doctors said she had a mild concussion but she would be okay. Just some observations.
"Mom, I'm sorry ." She held her hands squeezing it softly.
"Hey it's okay." I patted her back, she cleaned her tears .
"Visiting hours are almost over, you should get home."
"I don't wanna go home." Her voice was low. I gulped hoping this wasn't a bad thing.
"You could spend the night at my place, guest room of course." I suggested, her eyes lightened up. I could tell she was fragile.
"Are you sure that's okay with your parents."
"I'll explain to them, I'm usually invisible to them anyways." I shrugged and she got up.
"I'll see you tomorrow mom." She pecked her cheeks lightly before walking out with me.
Her car was parked in the garage, Vanessa barely said a word during the drive, she just cuddled herself up and looked like someone in deep thoughts. I finally got to the door and walked in.
Mom and dad were on the couch, having a decent conversation and by my books, it's one when they're not in a screaming contest.
"Hi son." Dad greeted, his eyes darted to Vanessa.
"Umm, her parents are having a bit of an issue. Can she stay for the night?"
"Sure dearie." Mom was the first to answer, she got up and hugged her like she understood what was going on. Why wouldn't she?.
They both went upstairs and I followed to my room.
It was 11pm yet I couldn't sleep, I tossed in bed thinking of how Vanessa was feeling, if her knee hurt or not.
"Just sleep Skylar, you'll see her tomorrow." I mumbled relentlessly.
Suddenly, the door knob clicked and someone walked in quietly tiptoeing. I turned on my nightlight.
"Vanessa." My voice was low and surprised.
"Can I sleep here, please." She begged holding her blanket.
"Okay." I muttered not sure if I was dreaming.
In seconds, she laid beside me, I turned the light off turning to the other side to get some rest. Suddenly, she moved closer and hugged me from behind. I heard her shallow breathing before it went back to normal and she snored lightly but in a really cute away. After then, I closed my eyes falling asleep almost immediately........
