SCARLET

I opened my eyes and saw a white ceiling on top of me. I blinked my eyes rapidly to get a clear view of my surroundings. I wasn't in my own room, or in my own bed. I suddenly felt a sharp pang of pain in my right leg.

"Uh, w-what is this…" I moaned, my throat felt dry.

"What is going on?" I scowled.

Right. Everything flashed back in my mind. I remember everything. The graduation, my family, walking away… Raoul came to me and then to the restroom…

Luke… He was there. I remembered that he was there.

"Scarlet?" I heard Katherine's voice.

I shifted my head to the other side. "Katherine?"

"You are awake! Thank God, you're awake!" She immediately sat next to me, squeezing my hand tight.

"Where's... where's…"

"Your parents came out for lunch. They didn't sleep waiting for you to wake up. You've been asleep for a day, " Nate said.

"No." I shook my head. "And Luke? Where's Luke? What happened to me?"

"Shh, it's okay. He's sleeping." Katherine pointed out the man sitting on the couch, with his arms crossed over his chest. His eyes shut, and he had wrinkled eyebrows. I sighed in relief.

"Why am I here, Katherine? Did I get shot?"

She nodded with a deep sigh. "Yes, luckily it's just your leg."

"What are you still doing here? You should be in Edinburgh, " I asked her.

Katherine held my hand. "I told Uncle that I'm not going there anymore. Nate and I decided to go to New York where his parent's lives and that means I'm leaving not leaving anymore. We can be together again, Scar."

As much as her news were really great to hear, I had a deal with Thomas. "What? But I was supposed to go with you. No. I am still going to leave, even if I am alone."

"Don't be so stubborn. Your stepfather didn't want you to go because you're still injured."

"I want to leave, " I insisted. "I'll ask Thomas to help me. I'm not safe here with Raoul around—"

"Scar, Raoul is gone, " Nate informed. "So you can stop worrying about him now."

"What? What do you mean gone?"

"He's dead, Scar. After he shot you, your stepbrother came with the police and shot him, " he explained.

Hope rushed through me. I shut my eyes as I felt the tear rushed through my face. "Death isn't enough for that bastard, " I whimpered. "He killed my baby. He hurt me and so I had a miscarriage. I remember it all now."

How did even forget about it? What kind of a person was I? When he left in the mud three years ago, everything blacked out. I had forgotten some fragments of my memories of what really happened to me because I was stuck up being depressed. All I could remember was how he hurt me.

I wiped away my tears away.

Katherine was now in the verge of crying. Nate shut his eyes in fury.

"But it's all okay now." Katherine sniveled. "And don't worry. The graduation turned out well, and the university won't take this to the public."

"But you can't really prevent people from talking."

"You don't have to worry about it. Just get better, okay?"

"Raoul might be dead, but I still can't stay here anymore, " I whispered her, worried that we might wake Luke up and hear our conversation. He was just a few feet away from us.

"You're still injured, Scar, " Nate convinced. "Do you think you can leave in this situation?"

"I can still feel my feet, it means I'm not crippled."

Katherine laughed faintly. "Let's see about that. Do you want to eat?"

"Yeah, I'm starving. Please don't l

leave me?" he asked painfully. His eyes were suddenly bloodshot. "After I thought I'd lost you?"

I swallowed my throat dry and smiled. "Not anymore—now that Thomas and Mom miraculously seemed fine with it."

Luke squeezed his temples and began to sob. Deep, painful sobs. For a moment, I let myself watch this beautiful soul in front of me.

"Hey…"

Luke abruptly lifted his face and sprang up. He cupped my face and he adhered his forehead with mine. "I love you, Scarlet. More than anything. I can't live anymore without you."

"I can say the same." I felt my tears rushed on my cheeks as well. "I love you too, Luke."

He kissed me swiftly and our lips clinging. "Promise me something."

I chortled between our breaths. "Promise you what?"

"That whatever might happen to us after this, you would never let go." I felt him tensed.

"Of course, I won't. Luke, you were my first love. I guess I haven't told you about it." I chuckled at his sweet words.

He gazed at me softly. "Really?"

"Yes, but we have a lot of time. We can still talk about that later. But why are you suddenly being like this?"

"Listen." He pressed a kiss on my forehead then he stared back into my eyes. His beautiful cerulean eyes were now penetrating deep within my soul. "Because the path we chose is going to be hard. You're still Gene's daughter and everyone knows about it."

"Luke, you saw how they reacted. Mom and Thomas knows. I think it's all that matters."

"Just promise me."

"Okay. I promise."

He breathed heavily, his cheekbones gleaming by his heated tears. I'd never seen him so exposed like this. How I loved this man so much.

"Good. Because I'll do anything for you, Scarlet. There are no more limits. Just us. You and me."

"Then why are you still talking? Just kiss me."

"You've become brazen, witch."

I chuckled at his endearment then I trapped him between my arms—never mind the pain in my body. I pushed him against me and smashed my lips onto his.

After he had said those words to me, I knew deep inside what he meant. There would still be more challenges and trials our relationship would face. In front of the people's eyes, he was still my stepbrother.

But none of it won't matter anymore because he would protect me… and because I believed in him.
