...pain....

Immense amounts of pain. My back hurt from the lashings that Mr. Hart gave me. Most of the actual cuts healed, but there was bruising. And it wasnt going away for a while. And then there were my...nether regions. THAT is an entirely different kind of hurt. I couldnt even say what he put down there to torture me. But it doesnt hurt as bad as it did. And thats saying alot.

I finally got let go. Cant say that I'll ever cross the Harts like i did EVER again. Not worth the beatings and rape. I can only pretend to like it so much. I couldnt just go back to school, though. Not with all the bruises and cuts. People would ask questions. Especially Jackie. That girl just gets at my last nerve. I cant afford to have anyone suspicious of what Im doing...

So I stayed at this little cottage that my dad has on the side. Mom doesnt know about it, and its for the best. Any time that we have any trouble with the Harts and need to get away for a little bit, thats where we go. We get time to heal and dont get bothered by anyone. Its kinda nice..plus theres cable tv.

After a week I decided it was time to go back to school so Jackie wouldnt get TOO suspicious. Theres only so much caring for a sick uncle you can do. It was almost exactly the same as when I left. Except her side of the room seemed to have gotten even cleaner. how is that possible??? I went in the bathroom and took a shower. While I was in there I remembered something...

"Drake."

I hadnt seen him since the Harts seperated us to do their dirty deeds! I wonder where he is now...

Poor Connor. Losing a roommate like that. He seemed pretty down, but he said he was meeting Dawn and hopefully she'll help keep him from getting too depressed. I wonder how he's going to manage with a new roommate. He wanted to be alone in his room, but he found out that wasn't possible. It didn't make any happier.

I was thinking about this as I made my way back to my dorm room. I wondered if Nicollette was going to be around. She was gone an awful long time caring for her uncle. He must have one of those terminal illnesses or something else bad. I hope she's okay.

I walked into our room and noticed her messy side, as per usual. How she finds anything in her side, I don't know. It would drive me nuts trying to find something in that mess. I grabbed a water out of the fridge and sat on my bed, about to turn on the television and vegetate for a while, when I hear the door open.

"Nicollette, oh hey. I didn't know you were back. How is your poor uncle? I hope he's okay. It hasn't been all that great here with you gone. I missed you, I know, how mushy of me, but, it wasn't the same, being in this dorm room all by myself. Oh, and some student got killed, isn't that awful? He was mugged in Pennsylvania. Makes me not want to visit there anytime soon..."
I went back to my bed.

"Nicollette, oh hey..."

I rolled my eyes to myself and put on a brave smile.

"Jackie, hey. My uncle's...alright."

She missed me?! Oh god. I tried to fake some flattery.

"Aw, I missed you too. I was holed up in his cottage almost the whole time. Except when I had to go to the store to get his prescription filled. It was kindof nice though, we got to catch up. I really havent spent that much time with him since I was little."

Wow, that was a lot of creativity there, Nic.

"A student was killed? Who?"

I hope it wasn't Drake...the Harts wouldnt have...would they?

"Uh...I'm not sure. I know it was a guy though. Blake, I think? Maybe that was his first name. I remember the "ake" part better than the first part of his name. I've been studying a lot, so I only caught details here and there."

I couldn't exactly tell her I've been doing slayer training with Alex. But I could tell her that I have a new boyfriend...well, I just met the guy but I really like him. Xander. I can't get him out of my mind. Then again, maybe I should quiet down a bit and give her a break from my blabbering.

"Anyway, how awful. I hope his roommate is okay, poor guy..."
Blake? Thats dangerously close to Drake...

"Thats so sad...I hope they catch whoever did it. And you said it was in Pennsylvania?"

Had to feign sadness for the loss of a fellow student. But if it was Drake that was killed...I wouldnt have to feighn anything.

"Ive had enough sickness and near death at my Uncle's...anything else new? Whatever happened with that guy from the diner?"
"Oh he's history. I'm dating someone new now. His name is Xander. He's so cute and funny. I think I'm falling in love in with him and I've only been on like one date."

I was babbling again. I couldn't help it. Xander was just...everything I want in a guy and more. I couldn't help but gush about him.

"Other than, and that poor kid's death, it's been rather boring around here. You didn't miss much."
"Oh he's history. I'm dating someone new now..."

I had to laugh a little. Now we're talkin'! Less sweetiepie, more lover girl.

"Xander, huh? That's an..interesting name. Is it some sort of nickname or what?"

Didnt get too many names like that around here, thats for sure.

"Yeah..poor kid."

I needed more information about him..if it was Drake I just dont know what I'll do...

"So dish about this Xander guy..cute?"
"You know...I didn't think to ask him." I laughed. "Probably a nickname for something like Alexander, maybe. Yeah, I can see that."

I turned to look at her with a big smile on my face. "And he is SO cute. I can't wait to see him again. Dark hair, brown eyes, oh he's so gorgeous...and you should see his arms. Mmmmm, I can't wait to see him shirtless..." I giggled.
