I awoke early the next morning as the sun came through the blinds in my living room. Scar and I had fallen asleep together on the couch. She was passed out on top of me, as the remainder of food and drinks laid around. I didn’t want to wake her up, but I had to be in the studio in an hour to meet Aaron. Weighing my options, I decided to gently try to pick her up with me and carry her to my bed. The couch was a terrible place to fall asleep on.
I successfully had placed her on my bed and covered her with blankets. She was out and it didn’t seem to faze her that I moved her.
I had showered, gotten dressed, and was ready to head to the studio. I felt that it would be a great idea to leave Scar a little note. She had taken today off from work because she was exhausted, so I welcomed her to get anything she needed here.
Went to studio, be back hopefully by dinner or earlier. Help yourself to anything.
See you later beautiful,
I awoke to find myself in Austin’s bed, damn I liked his scent, I rolled over to find a note from Austin. It was 1PM, so Austin would be back in maybe 4 or 5 hours? I have no idea what time I fell asleep with him on the couch, except that it was late.
I showered, and made coffee when Erin texted me or should I say blew up my phone with texts. She was staying at my condo since Tony was also out recording.
E: You coming home tonight bitch?
E: Please tell me you two aren’t fucking already.
E: Scarlett Harris where are you!
E: I fell asleep. You aren’t here. SCARLETT!
S: Dear gosh you’re annoying as fuck.
E: SHE’S ALIVE OMG DID YOU SLEEP WITH HIM?
S: No we fell asleep together on the couch that’s all.
E: Good. Be innocent around him.
S: wtf is that suppose to mean?
E: I know how you get Scar.
S: why the fuck would you bring that up!
E: Just reminding you of why you stayed with Parker for so long
S: Kindly be out of my condo by time I get back
E: You haven’t told Austin yet?
S: He doesn’t need to know.
E: You know his past Scar!
S: It won’t matter okay
Did Erin seriously have to be a bitch to me? What happened in the past, especially ten years ago, doesn’t need to be brought up. Austin doesn’t need to know this.
I thought the demons in my head were gone, hell I forgot about them while I was with Austin. I want to leave, I need to leave, he’ll be waiting for me when he gets back, but I can’t stay here now. I don’t want to do something stupid. My past is going to eat me alive.
I looked at the clock, 4:30PM. When the fuck did that happen?
I was sitting on the couch, thinking about my past, when Austin walked in through the door.
“Hey beautiful!” he said with that gorgeous smile of his.
“Hey” I said, and realized that didn’t sound too happy that he was back, shit.
“What’s wrong?” he asked and sat next to me.
What to say what to say, to lie to a man who’s had problems with his cheating ex-wife knowing that she lied to him. I mean I’m already lying about my past and why I cut, so what the hell, lie some more.
“Work is already after me that’s all, how was the studio?” I said, good job Scar you lied then adverted to a new subject.
“You and your work babe” he said and kissed my forehead, “the studio was great, this new album is going to be so sick!” he said and I could see the excitement in his eyes.
“That’s great!” I said. Oh did I suck at lying.
“Would you stay for dinner? Or do you have to get back?” he asked.
I want to leave, but I want to stay, but I should leave.
“I’m sorry babe I have to get back, I at least wanted to be here for you when you got back.” I said and pouted my lip.
“Aw it’s fine. You leaving now?” he asked looking sad, which made me feel guilty.
“Unfortunately, maybe we can have dinner tomorrow?” I asked, hoping to spark hope in his eyes.
“Yeah! That would be great baby!” he said.
I got into my condo. To find that Erin was gone which I was really glad about.
Then I felt someone grab my arm, then put his or her hand over my mouth.
This was bad, really bad, fuck.
