I glanced over to see he was still asleep, I pulled the cover back off of me slowly trying desperately not to wake him. He didn't move so I held my breath as I scooted to the edge of the bed wincing as I moved my legs. They were aching bad today, I glanced over at Trey as I climbed out of the bed. Oh god please don't wake up! I gritted my teeth and tried desperately not to step on any squeaky floorboards as I tip toed over to the chair to grab my clothes and slipped into the hallway naked praying that none of his boys were up so early and would see me. That would be really bad for both me and them!
I pulled on my jeans and black vest top and made my way downstairs quickly grabbing a juice box and granola bar before heading to my car. He was gonna be mad that I left without saying goodbye but I really needed to go to classes today, I had a test coming up and I couldn't fail, not again, this was already a re-sit. I sped to off to school praying I wouldn't be late again, I really could do without another detention!
I met my best friend in the world in the car park. Melissa Porter was the best friend a girl could ask for, supportive, loyal, funny and kind. She was also gorgeous with poker straight blonde hair that hung just past her shoulders with the tips dyed a shocking cherry red. She had big blue eyes and was always smiling, she was around 5 foot 5 just a little shorter than me and was stick thin even though she ate like a horse. I on the other hand was about 5 foot 7 with a curvy figure which I hated, I had plain brown hair that was just above my shoulders and brown eyes and was totally average, well maybe not even that.
"Hey Brook" she said as she threw her arms around me happily, I winced as she touched my sore back but worked hard not to show it.
"Hey Mel" I said grinning.
"You stay at Trey's last night?" she asked curiously, I nodded and looked down at myself.
"That obvious huh?" I asked looking over my clothes that I had thrown on in less than a minute flat.
She laughed "You wore that yesterday, dirty stop out" she said teasingly as she linked her arm through mine and we started walking off to classes.
"So what, no one'll notice, who cares" I said shrugging.
She grinned, "Whatever tramp, guess what?" she said skipping along excitedly.
"What?" I asked grinning, what the hell is she so excited about? She only gets this excited about shopping, boys and oh no! "Not a party" I said grimacing.
She nodded happily, "My brothers best friend is having a party on Saturday and I scored us invites!" she said practically bouncing on the spot. I rolled my eyes, as if Trey would let me go to a party without him.
"I'm not going Mel" I said sternly.
She snorted "Yes you are! You need to have some fun without that asshole, and I know he's going away for the weekend" she said waving her hand dismissively.
I frowned "I can't, Trey would go crazy if he found out I went out when he wasn't here" I admitted.
Mel knew all about Trey, how he was jealous and possessive and would beat me if I did anything wrong. God if I went to a party without him he would literally beat me senseless and I couldn't stand anymore pain, not yet, I was still recovering from the last beating he gave me for ruining his favourite shirt by putting it in the tumble dryer and shrinking it.
"You're going! This is gonna be the hottest party of the year, and besides, it's my birthday, I'm gonna be seventeen so you have to come with me, for my birthday" she said proudly thinking she'd cornered me.
I laughed "Your birthday's not for another two weeks" I said shaking my head, she is so sneaky.
She grinned "Yeah well think of it as a early present then, come on please, you're my best friend, you have to come with me, please Brook" she said giving me the puppy dog face. I sighed, I guess I could go for a couple of hours. I didn't know any of Mel's brothers friends so it shouldn't get back to Trey that I went.
"Oh for goodness sake fine! I'll go but ONLY if Trey definitely leaves for the weekend, there's some big deal going down and he said he needs to get it sorted before he can go" I said shrugging. Trey never really told me anything to do with his business and to be honest I just didn't want to know.
She squealed and I smiled at how happy a simple party could make her. "Come on then, let's get to class" I said rolling my eyes. Hopefully I'd be able to go as long as Trey left town like he planned and I wouldn't have to let her down.
After school I made my way back to my house, Trey was already standing in my kitchen waiting for me as I walked through the door, "Hey boyfriend" I said smiling and trying to ignore the glare he was shooting me. He slammed his cup down onto the kitchen side smashing it and I held my breath.
