I walked out of the shower with puffy red eyes and a headache. I changed into sweatpants and a t-shirt and decided to start packing but before that, I have to book a flight back home. I sighed and sat on the bed – I didn't even bother to dry my hair – I was in no mood to do anything except packing and leaving as soon as I could. I was humiliated and completely exhausted. I couldn't stop the tears. What happened today was the least I expected when I moved here. I took this decision too quickly – I should have thought about it before accepting the offer and Adam – I never thought he would hide something so big from me. He knew and yet he didn't warn me and now – I had to pay for it. I was angry, humiliated, tired and hungry but most of all I was defeatist. Everything was going okay – although I was living a boring life, lived with my parents and had no social life but at least it was better than what I had to go through today.

I snuffled and wiped the tears off my face – I did not have time to think about it over and over again – also I didn't want to. It was humiliating enough that it happened – I don't want to hurt myself by thinking about it again. I just want to go back to my parents' house and maybe find another job and eventually my place. I sighed and took my laptop out – I had to book a flight back home. I was searching for flights when I heard a knock on my door. I didn't realize that Adam and Cole were back home. There was another knock – but I wasn't sure if I wanted to see them. I heaved, "Go away, I don't want to see anyone right now, " I said out loud but whoever it was behind the door didn't stop. I rolled my eyes and stormed towards the door – what didn't they understand? I clearly said I didn't want to see them. I fling the door open to tell them that I wasn't in the mood and planned to slam the door right on their face but I couldn't do it when I saw the person standing in front of me. I didn't want to slam the door on their face instead I wanted to punch their face – again and again, and again and probably – again.

I gritted my teeth and snarled, "What?!" I clenched my jaws together and looked around to see that neither Adam nor Cole was around – if they didn't get home – how did Roy get in? "How the hell did you get in?" I asked her hotly. He wasn't replying to me – he was just looking at me with his eyebrows brought together, "How did you get in, Roy?! Did you break-in? Or stole Adam or Cole's house-keys?" I snarled. My blood was boiling while he was staring at me without even blinking his eyes. When I was sure he wasn't going to answer – I was about to slam the door on his face but he didn't let me – he simply placed his hand on the door – stopping me from slamming it hard. "Get out of here, Roy! I swear I will call cops on you!" I yelled.

"Cole, " Roy finally spoke. I brought my eyebrows together, "What?" I asked. Roy sighed while his hand was keeping the door from shutting – "Cole, he let me in. He couldn't face you so he went in his room – if you don't believe me then go and check his room – he is in there, " He pointed his thumb towards the door next to mine. I didn't want to see Cole anyway – so I rolled my eyes, "What is it that you need?" I shot at him. "Are you here to make if I am leaving or not – well, let me erase all your doubts – I am leaving. Are you happy now? Now, please get the hell out of here!" I said and was about to slam the door on his face but he blocked the door with his hand – again. "What is the matter with you?! What do you want from me?!" I yelled out loud enough for the whole building to hear me – I was furious and as I always do when I am angry – I broke down – tears started to fall down my face. I have never been more humiliated in my life.

I placed my hand on Roy's firm chest and tried to push him away but he was too strong or I was just completely drained. "What is it with everyo

ould get. I was rubbing my forehead when I heard a knock on my door again. I looked at my door and wondered if it was Adam because I was sure that it wouldn't be Roy again. I wasn't sure how I was going to react but since so much has already happened – it would be better if I talk to Adam. I have been ignoring his calls and message anyways. I got up on my feet and walked towards the door and opened it to find Maggie at the door. She had a deep frown on her face, "Are you okay? I heard about what happened – shit, I would have killed the bastard!" Maggie slammed her fist on the door. "I can't believe you went back there, Cole!" She said loudly – it was for Cole to hear but there was no response from him – his bedroom was still closed. Maggie was about to storm to his room when I stopped her, "Leave it, " I grabbed her arm. She looked at me and I shook my head, "Give him some time – he needs space." I told her softly.

She pushed her hair back and sighed, "I believed that he was going to change but that bitch – she got him again. I should have listened to Roy, " Maggie said. What she was saying was going above my head – I couldn't understand a word and Maggie saw the confusion I had on my face. She sighed, "It is just – I don't know how to tell you everything now but let me just say that things got messed up last time and we don't want Cole to get trapped by that vixen again." She said. I was sure she was talking about that woman Cole was with – the owner of the sex club. I wanted to ask her more but I didn't feel like I was in the place to ask her anything. Maggie looked at me heaved – her facial expressions softened, "How are you feeling, Emma?" She asked. I gulped, "I am fine, " I replied short as my hand automatically went up to my head – my head was aching from where that man pulled my hair. Maggie opened her mouth to say something when Adam and Jake walked into the apartment. They both had a deep frown on their faces. "I swear, Emma, I am going to kill that guy and Roy, " Adam said as he strode towards me and embraced me in a hug. I was furious with him but a hug was what I needed. I was trying to be strong but I couldn't control more and broke down. "I was so scared, " I said softly. Adam tightly held me and mumbled, "I am sorry." He said while he rubbed my back – trying to calm me. I rested my chin on his shoulder and opened my eyes to see Jake standing behind Adam – the frown on his face slowly softened and he offered me a small and soft smile. "You okay?" He mouthed. I forced a tiny smile and with teary eyes, I nodded my head – I was okay – just okay.
