I hate to admit this, but the truth Alice revealed to me had smacked me hard in the face. I am finding myself gasping for air when the reality sinks in after Alice leaves.
I drop on the couch with the note still clutched in my right hand. I recognised my father’s handwriting and I know everything is true.
I know he was a monster, but why does it still hurt? It doesn’t shock me like it was supposed to do but it hurts me…why?
I stare at my right hand in a trance.

Tears start sliding down my cheeks without my control as my body trembles
HAYES’ POVI suddenly feel the urge to go behind her, to see if she is fine. I don’t know why I am still like this.I swore to myself that I will never care about her again, I will never go behind her again, but here I am…Pushing the girl away and making my way out of the club.Cold air hits me as soon as I step outside and find her nowhere in sight. After looking for her everywhere and asking the guards about her, I realise she must have taken the backdoor.Stupid woman! Who takes the backdoor right into the alleyway in the middle of the night?I heave a heavy breath and make my way to the other side of the club which is the alleyway.I walk in silence, many thoughts running through my mind.When she saw me earlier, I almost thought she was jealous when I know it’s not possible. She doesn’t love me, she proved this on many occasions.Suddenly, my feet halt on their spot when I am
MADISON’S POVEverything is dark around me and it’s like I can still hear the whistle in this darkness.The sound haunts me and it makes me twist in the invisible restraints bounding me to the darkness.I gasp for air and blink my eyes open. Light blinds me and makes me close my eyes again.Everything hurts, even breathing hurts at this point.Forcing myself, I open my eyes once again. The burn in my eyes is sharp, but I am too scared to close my eyes.“ You are awake. ” The familiar voice and the familiar words give me a sense of deja vu.Inhaling deeply, I turn my head a little at him and find Hayes sitting on the chair placed beside the bed.I blink my eyes at him, unable to understand what’s happening for a moment.‘ Dad…’ I hear the whisper of a memory in my mind and my eyes turn wide.He was the
HAYES’ POVSomething is not right. My gut are screaming this at me for quite some time.Doctors came and checked up on Madison. Everything is alright with her and she will be discharged in a week or so.She fell asleep right after the doctors left and I have been watching her closely from that time.First of all, she hit herself in the face and then she ended up in the middle of the road, almost killing herself in the way.She has been repeating somethings lately. Someone broke in, I saw my father, something is not right…Things like that.I do agree with her on this. Something is not right, but it’s not what Madison thinks. I think she needs help and she needs a psychologist. But, it will be a real headache to convince her to see one.I breath in and out, my eyes fixed on her swollen eye. I never thought I would ever see Madison like this. She was str
