"Dash, the sun will be coming out any minute now. We have to leave the room. We can't let anybody find out about what happened. My parents already hate me, I don't want anybody else to despise my existence, " Lauren said, her eyes wide with fear and worry.

My heart clenched with raw pain at seeing her suffer. Lauren yearned for parental love just like Dash and I did, and even though I got love from my mother while Dash got it from his dad, Lauren never received any from her parents.

"I know, but Bri still hasn't promised to keep this a secret. We can't let her out like this, " Dash argued. I wanted to growl and tell him to shut up. I was so done with him. If it weren't for Lauren, I would've already screamed the house down.

Lauren turned those big eyes on me and I knew I couldn't hurt her. She was damaged because of sheer neglect; this girl needed help. And even then it'll take a long time for her to recover and function as a normal person.

"Bri, please. I promise you I'm getting help and I never miss a session with my therapist. I swear I didn't mean to kill her. You understand, right? It wasn't in my control, " Lauren pleaded. She didn't need to plead, as I'd already made up my mind that I would keep her secret. But what I wouldn't do was be with Dash. Lauren needed help but Dash used me and broke my heart. There was no way I was going to forgive him for that.

"It's okay, Lauren. I know you are sick. Don't worry, I won't tell the cops about you. But you have to help Sierra; she is innocent. I'll keep your secret as long as you help her, " I stated.

Lauren's eyes lit up and she breathed a sigh of relief. "Thank you so much, Bri! I promise I will not let you down." The poor girl was so worried; her future could be destroyed with this.

"Thanks, Bri. I'm glad you understand, " Dash added. I glared at him; it was time I cleared things between us.

"Yeah, I do. And now I want you to understand something." I paused, letting my words sink in. "I'm breaking up with you—"

"Oh Bri, no, you can't break up with Dash; it's not possible, " Lauren said, surprise evident on her face. If breaking up with him was such an impossible thing how come he'd broken up with so many girls in the past?

I ignored Lauren, keeping my eyes on my ex-boyfriend who looked just about ready to explode. "You used me, betrayed me and I will not let that slide. I am no longer your girlfriend and I will appreciate it if you'll stay away from me."

"You think you can just break up with me and tell me to avoid you and I'll do it?" He stood up. "That will never happen. Once you become mine you stay mine."

I shook my head. "No, this time will be different. I don't want to be your girlfriend."

"Bri, he was only helping me; please don't blame him for my mistakes, " Lauren defended.

"I'm not blaming him for your mistakes. I'm blaming him for breaking my heart, " I corrected her.

"I had no choice, Bri; Lauren needed my help. I couldn't have anyone get her in trouble, " he argued.

"You could've told me the truth; I would've understood just like how I understood now. But you didn't do that, instead you lied to me and made me feel like an idiot. So no, I am not going to stand for this, " I stated.

"You are not breaking up with me, " he said as if his word was law.

"I am. We are so over." I flailed my arms for emphasis.

Dash narrowed his eyes. "You think I'm going to let you go? I will make your life a living hell if you dare break up with me, " he threatened. His words would've scared me before, but now, they meant nothing. I knew he couldn't hurt me.

"You can't do anything, Dash. Your words are nothing more than empty threats. We are over and I want to go back to Burswick; today!" I told him.

"But, you just got here; please don't leave so soon. I promise we'll have loads of fun, " Lauren said.

"I can't stay here anymore, Lauren. I'm not his girlfriend now, " I replied.


u, " he stated, causing me to frown in confusion.

"Huh? What do you mean?" I asked.

Damien grinned before taking my hand. "I'll show you. Come with me." I wanted to protest but he didn't give me a chance, dragging me to God knows where.

"Damien, where you taking me?" I asked as he led me into the boys' dormitory

"For ice cream, " he stated.

"What? Why ice cream?" I questioned as he pushed the door open and entered his dorm with me behind him.

"Because I bought a huge tub of ice cream and I have no one to share it with. So we will eat ice cream and you won't be sad, " he answered.

"Right. Where is it?" I enquired, looking around for the ice cream tub.

"Sit down, I'll get it." With a soft smile, Damien bent down and opened a mini fridge.

"You have a mini fridge here?" I stared wide eyed.

"Yeah, you don't?" He threw back at me.

"No, I thought they weren't allowed, " I said.

"They are if you give an application, " he responded.

"Oh okay. What flavor is the ice cream?" I looked around his room. "Do you not have a roommate?"

"Not yet. Well okay, I don't have a roommate because I like my privacy; I can't share a room with anybody." He told me.

"That's nice. Your father must be extremely influential to get you all these privileges, " I remarked.

"He is influential, but then again, whose father isn't? If you study at Burswick, your parents are rich, " he stated before standing up with a tub of ice cream in his hand. "Is cookies n cream okay for you?"

I smiled. "I love it. Come, let's sit and eat." I patted the side of the bed, gesturing for him to come and sit with me.

Once Damien sat down, he handed me a spoon before opening the lid. "Dig in." I giggled but did as he said. When the first bite of frozen cream touched my tongue, I shivered before moaning out loud. The effect of ice cream on my gloomy mood was immediate—helping me relax.

"This is delicious. It's been so long since I've eaten ice cream, " I mumbled before taking another spoonful.

"Well now you can sit with me and eat as much ice cream as you want. I'll tell my dad to send some more so we can share, " he replied, grinning at me.

Damien's grin was beautiful and infectious and I couldn't help myself from smiling along with him. Being with Damien made me feel better; it lessened the pain Dash caused me.

But how long would this temporary happiness last?
