"J-J-Josh?" I stuttered out. His smiled widened evily.
"Yep." Was all he said.
Right in front of me was the cause of my nightmares and fear. He here was, just kissed me, and he just stood there smirking. I tried to swallow, speak, do something, but my mouth was dry, and my limbs felt as if they weren't there.
"You've changed," he said, looking me up and down in a way that made me very uncomfortable. "You now look very...mature."
He chose his last word carefully. Mature, as in ready to have sex. He was still on that mission, and I wasn't gonna fall for it now.
"I'm not gonna have sex with you Josh. Not now, not ever!" I told him,
"Don't swear off the future Babe," he said, touching my cheek lightly. I smacked his hand away, and he brought it right back, hard.
This slap was hard a lot harder than the ones he used to deliver when we went out. I grabbed my cheek. He was glaring at me.
"See you around, Bitch," he said in goodbye, then he walked away in the direction I had just came from. Tears evaded my eyes, and I took off at a run toward the front doors, and beyond, my brothers.
I ran to the doors, and push them open with all my might. The bright sun blinded me momentarily. I blinked a few times, so that my eyes could adjust. Then I hurried over to the SUV, waiting for me in the parking lot.
I opened the car door and slid in without a word, tears falling silently down my cheeks. My brothers noticed, because Nick tried to put a comforting arm around my shoulders, but I shook it off.
"Sissy, what's wro-," I cut Nick off with the order, "Drive."
Kevin complied, while Nick tried, once again, to comfort me. I shook my head at him, which moved my hair away from my cheek.
Not a good idea.
"Nicki, what happened?" he asked. He went to push the remainder of my hair away, to closer examine my red face, but I slapped it away. "Nicole, let me see."
"No!" I almost yelled, hitting his hand again. He sighed in frustration, and grabbed my wrist. He had migrated to the center of the back seat, so he had no trouble pulling me over his knee. He landed only 10 smacks to my bottom, not hard just warnings, but I broke down. My tears flowed, and sobse came from chest.
"Sissy!" Nick pulled to sit up in his lap, and hugged me to his chest. I cried into his shoulder, scared beyond belief.
"Nicole! Why do you have a note for Dad?" Joe asked. I looked at him, blinking away some tears. He was holding the paper from Mrs. Reynolds in his hands, looking very disappointed in me. I told them the story, my tears coming the whole time. Nick popped my thigh when I was done.
"Nicki, you are gonna be in trouble when we get home," Kevin said, turning onto our street.
"I know, but before I do, I have something I need to tell you. ALL of you."
