I had my jaw down as I stared at Tristan punching the mirror in front of him aggressively.

The cracks on the mirror increased as he punched more, I had never seen him this angry.

He grunted as he sent another punch which shattered the mirror, I almost gasped but I covered my mouth with my palms.

My eyes drifted to his bloody knuckles, I could see the cuts and I knew some pieces of glass were in there, how was he enduring the pain?

I was waiting for him to stop since the mirror was broken but he kept punching the wall, I winced like I was his knuckles.

I didn't know if I should walk in and stop him, what if he decided to punch me? He was blinded by rage right now and it was terrifying.

He paused and screamed, he looked like he was in great pain. Not physical pain but something else, I could see the guilt on his face as tried to hold himself together. I pushed the mouthwash to the ground and cursed.

I made up my mind to leave quietly. I took slow and quiet steps to the bedroom, I tried to hold my breath scared he might hear it and punch the fragile life out of me.

I breathed out in relief when I made it outside. Who was I living with? Does he have some kind of mental problem?

I rushed to my room but I kept looking over my shoulder if Tristan was behind me, I was still freaking out from what I just saw.

I locked the door immediately I was inside. I called Vina and she picked on the last ring.

"Hey."

She said tiredly.

"Were you sleeping?"

"Yeah, I was about to say yes to Shawn Mendes."

I rolled my eyes like she could see me, her obsession with Shawn Mendes was exasperating.

"Did something happen?"

"Yes, Vina."

"Did you kiss Adrian again?"

"No, It's Tristan."

"You kissed Tristan?! I'm so jealous right now."

"I didn't kiss him, I saw him punching the mirror in his bathroom."

"So? I punch my mirror sometimes too when I hate my reflection."

"Do you punch it to the point it shatters and your knuckles are bleeding?"

"No? I love my nails."

"That was what I saw, he kept punching the mirror till it shattered into pieces and he didn't stop, he went on punching the wall."

I waited for her to say something but she was quiet so I continued.

"There was so much aggression, I could feel it. It was terrifying to watch believe me, it was like he was mad at his reflection or the mirror, i don't know. It's hard to explain."

"Why would he be mad at something so beautiful? Did you try to stop him?"

"Were you even listening to what I was saying? He looked like he was ready to punch whoever gets in his way."

"So you just left?"

"What else was I suppose to do? Scream?"

"I think you're overreacting."

"Overreacting? I just saw someone using a mir

g not leaving the mirror incident out.

"Shit!"

I heard him mumble, he looked away and whispered another curse.

"He is doing it again."

He said under his breath with a weird expression on his face.

"Doing what again?"

"Nothing, I will call you back."

He cut the call before I could open my mouth to say something.

I stared at the screen frustrated, I stood up and left.

I took my bath and waited for his call but an hour passed and he didn't call.

I wanted to know what was going on with Tristan, why Adrian had that look on his face, he looked scared.

He said something about doing it again, then this was not the first time.

What the hell was going on? Why was I here?

I took a glance at the wall clock, it was almost midnight, why was I still waiting for his call?

My throat felt dry and I had no water in my room so I left for the kitchen. I held my phone in my hand just in case he decides to calls.

I was on my way down the stairs when I heard two people arguing, I recognized the voices, Adrian and Tristan.

I moved back on my tiptoes and stopped at a spot I won't be seen, I leaned on the railings to hear what they were fighting about.

"...you think this is easy?!"

Tristan yelled.

"I know it's not but you can't do this in front of her, damn it! You need to stop."

"I don't know what to do okay? I never wanted this."

"She is here, somehow it's going to work."

"It has to work, I want it to work but I wish it was another way."

"I know, she only has....."

My ringtone shut him up, I stared wide-eyed at my phone. Why was Vina calling me so late? I knew I was already busted.

I rejected the call and tried to run upstairs before any of them would see me but luck wasn't on my side, I missed one step and fell on the stairs making a loud noise.

"Chloe?"
