Mine chapter 25 - Revenge Is A Bitch, And So Are You.
"What do you mean?!"
I was still pressing myself against the wall, wanting to fall through it so I can get out of there. I clung to Jake's arm for dear life, half crying in fear.
"Redhead" I whimpered "I reconize his voice, its him." I whimpered.
My memory flashed back to that night, stumbling down the alley drunk off my ass in high heels. Someone grabbing me from behind, pushing me against the wall, knife at my throat...
"Whats wrong with CC?" Jinxx said, causing everyone to turn to us.
My knees gave out and I fell to the ground. Jake stumbled down with me. The others came over and surronded me, trying to get me back to my feet. Jake and Ashley carried shaky me to the back sofa and gave me a water bottle then sat down on either side of me.
"That Danny guy, its him he's the alley guy..." I mumbled into my hands.
Jake put a protective arm around me. I could feel how pissed off he was.
"You're sure?" Andy asked.
I nodded. "Its his voice."
"Not just the accent?" Ashley said "You were pretty drunk, dude."
"If it was just the accent I would've accused lion head too!" I half-yelled, refering to the blond band member.
Jake's free hand tightened into a fist. Andy started pacing too.
"Call the cops." Ashley said "he raped our CC."
"Oh THATS gonna cause an uproar!" Andy said, annoyed.
"You really pick what the press thinks over justice for him?!" Jake yelled "Are you really that fucking selfish Andy?!"
"Stop yelling" I said "I agree with Andy."
Everyone turned to stare at me. I looked around at all of them through my hands, all of them confused and pissed.
"I can see TMZ or Kerrang! never shutting up about it. Plus, everyone is going to call me a liar. Their fans and our fans alike. I just joined, it looks like an act of wanting attetion if you ask me. Even if it was him."
"You can't be serious..." Jake whispered "CC, don't you remember how you were? You stayed in bed for three weeks, drank, you even shoved Trixie and Jeff away. It destroyed you."
"I never said we couldn't do anything about it." I said.
"I'll beat his ass!" Jake growled.
"...After the show." I said, finishing the scentance that he probably wasn't going to continue.
"They'll sue us though." Ashley said "Plus, they're british, we're a bunch of american twigs."
"CC is a drummer, beating things is his job." Jake said. "We'll be fine."
We waited outside between the buses. It was so dark you could barely see us, which was a good thing. We saw all the other members board the bus exept for Danny, who was said to be at the downstairs bar.
"You're sure it'll work?" Jake said, keeping his fists clenched.
"Yeah." I said, keeping into the darkness.
We kept hidden in the shadows. It was around 4 when we saw his shadow. Jake reached out and grabbed his shirt, slamming him against the van.
"Ah! Get your bloody hands off me!" he yelled. Andy covered his mouth while Ashley helped hold him still.
"You think its fun taking advantage of people Worsnop? HUH?" Jake spit, adding more pressure.
I stood back with my arms crossed, the only one who wasn't trying to tear the man apart. Anger and revenge burned inside me, I wanted to hurt him so badly his mother would be sore. I clenched my fists and walked forward.
I glared at him right down into his pathetic little soul. His gaze flicked towards me, clouded with drunk and fear. He looked weak and scared like a puppy.
"Remember him asshole?" Jake growled "Do you?"
Danny nodded his head slowly, whimpering into Andy's hand.
"Remember what you did?" Jinxx hissed.
He nodded again. Alother cloud added onto his face, guilt.
"What do you have to say for yourself you...you..." Jake's face was going red in anger, any more pressure and he could break Danny's arms. Andy uncovered his mouth to let him talk.
"P-please let me explain!" he begged.
Ashley slapped him across the face, making him cry out in pain. "Please!"
"Why should we? Do you realize what you did?!" Andy said.
Andy covered his mouth again, turning to me and giving me the mental sign to do my worst.
I looked back at Danny, looking so small like a puppy who pissed on the rug. I balled my fist up again and walked forward, puting one hand on his shoulder and raising my fist behind my head.
His eyes met mine, the same shade of brown. Pleading and miserable they bore into mine down to my very soul. I saw more clearly.
He was hurt, he WAS sorry, his puppy look was real. He didn't want to be hurt. I dropped my fist and backed away.
"Let him go." I ordered.
"What?" Ashley said.
"You heard me." I said "off."
"What the fuck do you mean?!" Jake said "CC he raped you, you're going to let him get away with it?"
"He didn't get away with it, he never DID get away from it. Look at him, hes pathetic." I waved my hand at him.
Jake and Ashley let go of Danny's arm and Andy uncovered his mouth. He fell onto his knees, looking up at all of his shakily.
"I know what I did was wrong mate forgive me." he said. "I have no idea what I was doing I swear--"
"Shut up." I said, stepping on his hand. He cringed slightly. "I can't forgive but I'll try to forget."
"Please d-don't kill me..." he begged.
"Tell any of your little buddies about this meet and I will." I got off his hand. Before he could stand up I swung my leg and kicked him in the chest, knocking the wind out of him.
"I...deserved that." he grunted, stumbling to his feet.
Jake pushed him to the curb. "Get out of here." He looked back at me, I crossed my arms and glared again. He nodded and raced for his tour bus.
I pushed past Jinxx and went for our bus. The rest followed me.
I went to my bunk and climbed up onto my bunk. Jake followed me, hanging off the side.
"Do you feel better?" he asked.
"Can I come up?"
I nodded again, grabbing his hands and pulling him up. He bounced slightly and rolled to a sitting position.
"Nice kick." he said, cracking a smile.
I looked down at my hand, smiling too. He took my hand and played with my fingers.
"Nice almost breaking his arms." I said, giggling slightly.
"You've seen me pissed off before." he replied.
We sat in awkward silence for a while. Jake shifted into a laying position, putting his hands behind his head. I smiled down at him and slid down onto my back, wrapping my arms around his torso. He put his arm under my back and rested his head on top of mine. We fell asleep in seconds.
