He wanted nothing more to have her realize that. He shook his head a bit and smirked when Beau was brought back up. [#5baf6d "Honestly she doesn't give two shits if I end up in jail. It wouldn't surprise her anyway. Seeing as I'm a total dick wad she'd be glad I was"] he said with a small smirk. When she mentioned him again, he shrugged a bit. [#5baf6d "What's done is done honestly. Can't really do anything to fix that"] he said with a small shrug of his shoulders.]

She lets out a soft sigh, her voice was shaking ever slightly, showing she was not as calm as she would like him to believe. [+red "Hindsight is 20/20, Dax. Its over and done with. Hopefully I won't ever have to see him again. And as.much as I'm sure we would both enjoy you kicking the shit out of him, I don't want you winding up in jail."] She smiles a very small smile, [+red "I don't think your sister would be happy with either of us at that point. As it stands, I her an apology for trying to run out on her. And I know I owe you more than just an apology, I can't imagine how much pain I must have caused you."]

The male froze when she started talking. He had seen that news report, and that was what had torn him apart. He sat up and looked towards her. His heart was breaking inside of his chest, and he honestly didn't know what to do, or how to react. When she spoke about her father beating her, was when his temper started to rise. The woman before him had been through so much, and she thought he was like her family. That was a stupid thing on her part, but for the moment he kept his mouth shut. What was he supposed to say? He wanted nothing more than to take her pain away.]

[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Raleway][raleway
He took a breath and started to speak when she was done. [#5baf6d "Honestly, I wish you could have come to me sooner about it. You knew I had connections to people who would have protected you. They would have done everything they could have to keep you safe, they would have helped put that bastard behind bars. Hell I would have fucking killed him if I knew he had laid his hands on you. Your mother I hope to God rots in hell for not believing you. There's seriously a special place in hell for people like that"]]

[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Raleway][raleway
[#5baf6d "As for you staying here, you are welcome to stay as long as you need. No need to be scared anymore. If I ever see your father I promise you I will rip him apart limb from limb for hurting you"] he said. He didn't realize his hands were balled into fists, until he looked down and saw the blood. He had been so worked up, he didn't realize what had happened. He uncurled his hands and kept his eyes turned down. He was pissed beyond pissed, and trying his hardest to calm down.]

She nods and takes a seat in the chair he nodded to. She stays silent for a few minutes before she slowly starts to explain everything. She explains how her mother believe everything had to always be perfect and refused to believe something wasn't. She explains how her mother got involved in her own little world while home, all the alcohol. [+red "Honestly, it wouldn't have been so bad if my dad actually cared about us, or at least me. All he cared about was his public image."] She starts to nervously starts to pick at the skin on her fingers. [+red "At first, him hitting me was only a punishment. For what I never found out. After a while it went from a punishment to him simply being angry and needing an outlet. Then, it just turned into him being able to and enjoying."] She shakes her head. [+red "That was one of his favorite things to shout, he enjoyed hurting me, that it gave him more pleasure than sex ever could, and shouldn't I be grateful that he never hit me where others could see. After everytime he would warn me not to saying anything to anyone, or things would get worse me and the person I told. I took that as him saying he would hurt them, the way he hurt me."] She stops speaking and stays quiet for a few minutes, trying to remain calm. [+red "Well, one day it got really bad. He lost a client for some reason. He decided to take it out on me. Only this time, he didn't just use his hands, he used whatever he could get his hands on; his belt, his feet, a hanger. He nearly beat me unconscious. I wait until he left and tried to get my mom to help me. She refused to believe me, she even said that if my father did strike me, that I must have deserved it. So that was a dead end. I tried to call a few police officers that were friends of the family, they didn't believe me either. They said there was no way a kind man like father could hurt a fly."]
She stops picking at her skin and folds her hands tightly. [+red "So, I was at a dead, I thought no one else would believe me, so I gave up. What I didn't know is that one of the cops had called my father and told him. When he got back home, he was beyond livid. He beat me black and blue, I remember screaming for him to stop and then a sharp pain in my head. Everything went black. I don't know how long I was out, but when I woke up, I was in some alley, I didn't know where I was. All i had on me was the clothes on my back. My phone was gone, even my debit cards. I walked for several hours, hoping to find my way back home. It was while I passed a nearby tv store that I saw a news report. It was about my father saying that I had been transferred out of state to work at a different branch in his company. It was then that I understood that I had been thrown away."]
Leaning back in the chair, she moves her gaze up to the ceiling. [+red "So, for the last couple years I have been living on the streets. Sometimes I would be able to go into a shelter, sometimes I couldn't. This winter had been pretty bad, it was very rare for me to find a shelter that had room. So, I thought of finding a house to stay in, at least for a night. And as you can see, it turned out to be your house. Your sister found me sleeping in the garage and let me stay the night. And here we are now."]

The male heard her walk down the stairs and he looked towards her, and let her speak. As she spoke he finished his reps and then lowered himself down. He stood there shirtless in front of her. His tattoos showing, and he crossed his arms over his chest. His breathing was slightly heavy, and he locked his eyes on her's. [#5baf6d "On one condition. Don't push me away, and you tell me the whole story. If you say you won't even do that, then the deal is off. I at least deserve to know everything"] he said lightly. His eyes moved over to a chair and he nodded his head towards it. [#5baf6d "Sit and start talking, I have a couple more reps to do before I'm fully done"] he said, as he moved over to a longer bench and laid on his back. He let the woman speak.]

She hesitates before slowly climbing down the stairs and heading into the basement. Once inside she glances around at all the exercise equipment and lets out a breath she didn't know she had been holding. Biting her lip for a moment she walks over to where Dax is, but stops a few feet from.him as he does his chin ups. She waits for him to finish before speaking. [+red "I'm sorry for how I acted. You were right in saying that all I did was run away."] She srops for a minute before meeting his gaze. [+red "But...I don't want to run anynpre... I know my family won't ever accept me back, but I would at least like to not be homeless anymore, and hopefully get a job."] She nervously tugs on of the sweater leaves. [+red "I know I don't have any right in asking you for anything, but will you help me, please?"]

Something told the male not to turn on the radio like he normally did, just in case she needed him. He pulled his shirt up and over his head, and tossed it aside. That's when he heard her calling out his name. He thought about keeping his mouth shut, but he had been enough of an asshole towards her. [#5baf6d "I'm in the basement, come on down"] he called out. He then reached for some barbells, and started lifting them towards his chest one at a time. When he got a pretty good set in, he moved over to the bar hanging above one of the doors in the basement, and started doing chin ups. He slowly starting counting in his head, waiting to see if the woman would finally show her face, and talk to him like a normal human being.]

She stays in the bathroom for at least an hour, it took her that long to be able to calm herself down and finally think rationally. Getting up off the ground she goes to the sink and splashes cold water onto her face. Letting out a soft sigh she mentally debated with herself. She could either leave, brace the cold winter and wind up dead, or she could suck up her pride, ignore her fear and ask Dax for help. For another fifteen minutes she goes back and forth with herself. Finally, self preservation wins out. As much as she accept that she would die on her own, she truly didn't want to. Wiping her face dry she leaves the bathroom and goes to find him, walking through the first floor of the big house. Periodically she calls out his name. She didn't try to go upstairs or anywhere else in the house, she didn't want to trespass more than she already has.

The male watched her with silent eyes as she spoke. How little she knew, he could have been the one to protect her. He had ties to multiple gangs in town, and yet she didn't trust him. She was a scared little girl, and he could see that now. Before he had a chance to even speak she ran out of the room. He shook his head lightly. What was he supposed to do? She was always running away, never taking action for herself. She wouldn't last much longer and he could see that. He let her do as she pleased though. He wasn't going to chase her around. He knew better than that anyway. He sighed lightly, as he finished his breakfast and put the left overs into containers.]

[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Raleway][raleway
He left her plate alone though, knowing she might want to finish it. He wasn't going to force her to do anything. He knew that he would end up snapping, and saying things he would regret, so he left her alone. If she wanted to leave, he would let her leave. He was done playing her childish games. If she really wanted help, she would come to him, instead of him chasing her down. When the pans were in the dish washer, he headed to the basement where he kept his workout shit. The only thing that really kept him sane, when Isabeau wasn't around.]
  нope / Binx- / 32d 12h 10m 13s
Tears slowly trail down her cheeks as her speaks and she tries to wipe them away. [+red "What was I supposed to do? Let them hurt you or anyone? All anyone ever sees if the good, perfect family. They don't see how deluded and self absorbed my mother is."] He hands clench into fists so tight that her knuckles turn white. [+red "And they certainly don't see how fucked up and abusive my father is."] She tries to take several breathes hoping to calm down. She let's out several shuddering breaths. [+red "I wasn't trying to shut you out, I wanted you to stay safe. If my father could nearly beat me unconscious, what could he have done to you? I thought if I told you, he would find out, I was afraid he would hurt you or at worse kill you. And I didn't want to risk that happening. I'm sorry I hurt you. I'm sorry i didn't trust you with this. I'm so sorry."] Her voice breaks on the last word and it takes al her control not to outright sob, as it stands she quickly gets up and runs into the bathroom, and slams the door shit, and lets her body slide down the door until she is sitting on the floor against it. She rests her head on her knees and just cries. She cries for all the pain her family put her through, she cries to upsetting Beau and she cries for hurting Dax so bad and leaving him behind. She knew he would take her running out as her leaving, and she would accept that. Once she had calmed down she would leave, she knew she had hurt him too much, to actually want her around.

Daxton was kind of surprised at the woman's words. He was kind of hurt though that she hadn't trusted him enough to come to him in the first place. He shook his head lightly and finished making breakfast. He then loaded up a plate and handed it to her. He didn't know what to say at the moment. He then grabbed himself a plate, and leaned against the counter. Her shook his head lightly and looked towards her. [#5baf6d "You know I did everything for you. I was always there for you, and would always have your back. Just knowing that you didn't trust me enough kind of pisses me off. I told you everything that was going on with me, and for what? Just to have you shut me out"] he stopped a moment.]

[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Raleway][raleway
[#5baf6d "Honestly if you cared at all about me, you would have come to me. You know damn well I'm nothing like your mother. So don't ever compare me to her again. If you wanna leave so bad, go ahead. I'm not gonna stop you again"] he said letting his words hang in the air. He meant it too. He was done trying to be the good guy.]
  нope / Binx- / 32d 13h 45m 43s
Fear fills her gaze as Dax grabs her arm, a mild flashback rooting her in place. It's not until she is placed in a chair that she snaps out of it. She watches as hurt can be seen in Beau's gaze before she leaves. She remains quiet until she hears several doors slam and then the squeal of tires. She lets out a barely audible sigh before running a hand through her hair. [I "I didn't run away. I was thrown away, because I tried to tell the truth, and it would have dragged my families name through the mud."] She says quietly. Tears pool in her eyes that she quickly wipes away. [I "Hell, even if I do tell you what happened, you won't believe, my mother didn't, the police didn't why would you?"] She looks over at him and smiles a sad smile. [I "Just let me leave....I'd rather die one day by myself, then believe idea that someone would listen to me, believe me and help me."]

The male narrowed his eyes towards her as she snapped at him. She didn't owe him anything? She owed him a shit ton, at least that's what he remembered. He wasn't going to say anything at the moment, but when she turned and started to walk away, was when he seemed to come back to himself. He closed the distance between them, and he grabbed her arm turning her around. His grip wasn't hard, but it wasn't easy to break out of either. [#5baf6d "If I remember right, you were the one who walked away from everything without a bloody word. So yes you do fucking owe me"] he hissed towards her. That's when he heard Beau coming down the stairs.]

[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Raleway][raleway
[#5baf6d "You better sit your ass back down, otherwise Beau's gonna think you are ditching out without talking to her first"] he said. He gently led the woman back to her chair, and made sure she sat down before letting her arm go. That's when Isabeau walked into the room, and a small smile passed over her lips. [#C4788E "I see you mean Dax."] she said lightly. She then walked up to her brother and kissed his cheek lightly. [#C4788E "Smells good"] she cooed lightly.]

[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Raleway][raleway
The male smirked a bit and hugged her gently. [#5baf6d "Thank you. Oh and your guest almost left before thanking you in person"] he said. He knew he threw Alex under the bus, but he didn't care. She knew better than to try and run. Isabeau turned to the woman, hurt in her eyes. [#C4788E "Oh.. Well I guess neither one of us can really keep you here, I just wish you would have thanked me, instead of Dax telling me"] she said lightly. She looked between the two and shook her head.]

[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Raleway][raleway
[#C4788E "I guess I can't really say much, seeing as I'm leaving myself. It was nice meeting you Alex, and hopefully you'll stick around for a couple of days, or at least until you get back onto your feet. I know Dax would like it"] she said lightly. She didn't say anything more, as she grabbed her keys and walked out to the garage. She was more hurt than she was letting on. Dax stood there listening as the door opened, and Isabeau was in the car, and out of the garage.]

[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Raleway][raleway
A moment later he turned and looked at Alex. [#5baf6d "So, are you going to tell me? Or are you just gonna be a little girl and run away again?"] he asked, knowing he was being an asshole, but at the moment he had a right too.]
  нope / Binx- / 35d 3h 23m 24s
Her entire body had gone ramrod straight, and her gaze grew cold. [I "I don't owe you a damn thing Daniels."] She hisses out. [I "I already said I would leave. So don't get your panties in a knot. You think you know everything about me? Well guess again. You're not the only one who has problems with their parents."] She knew she had no right to be angry at him, especially since it was his home she had trespassed upon, but it always rubbed her the wrong way when someone demanded something from her and assumed they had all the answers. While she was angry, she was a bit happy that he remembered her. Shaking her head she turns to leave. [I "Like I said, I wasn't planning on staying longer than I did. Thank your sister for me."]

The male froze when she spoke her name. Something about the way she said it brought back so many memories. He stood there with his back turned to her, trying his hardest not to do anything. He then turned towards her slowly, and his eyes were narrowed. [#5baf6d Alexandra Phyllips am I right?"] he asked. He thought he had lost her. The feeling of knowing that she was no longer in his life had been good, and yet it still tore him apart. He didn't quite understand why she had done what she did. He stood there locking his eyes on her face. He wasn't in the mood to deal with this kind of bullshit. He wanted the whole story.]

[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Raleway][raleway
[#5baf6d "Don't lie to me, because if you were the woman I knew all those years ago, you'd know damn well how I take to people lying to me. So if I were you, I would start talking before Isabeau wakes up and makes her way down for breakfast"] he warned. He went back to making sure the bacon and sausage wouldn't burn, and then put the eggs onto the stove and let those start cooking as well, waiting for the woman to start talking.]
