She watched him sitting at the edge of the bed. So many months ago, she had thought that he was perfect. His name was Nick, and he was the distant loner; like her. They instantly hit it off, and began talking endlessly, into the early morning hours each day, when the black sky, began to have a greyish hue.

Devi tried to push everything out of her mind as she pulled the warm blanket tightly around her porcelain white skin. She tried to pretend that nothing was going to happen in only a matter of minutes. Thinking back on happier times, she remembered her and Nick together hanging out at school functions, occasionally dancing and talking, but more generally, going their separate ways with their friends.

But his cold touch broke her thoughts. She felt the blanket being ripped away from her body and thrown across the room. Devi looked up at Nick's black eyes, pleading with him to stop. But he didn't...He never did.

Instead, he ripped away her shirt, and savagely started biting her neck and griping her waist. She dug her nails into his shoulder as she screamed for him to stop, but he only kept going. She felt a few drops of blood rolling down her neck and she tried to push him off of her. But he was a wrestler and easily kept her down and stayed where he was.

Finally, he released his tight grip from her waist. Yet he cringed as she realized where his hands were moving to. Devi began trying to free herself, but his hands were already in her pants. She fought back the tears that were forming in her eyes, and she began to try and pry him away from her body. Yet within seconds, he viciously began to rid her body of the black jeans she was wearing. Devi again tried to free herself from him, but found that it was useless, as he shoved his hand in and out of her body. She screamed in pain, but he didn't stop. Instead, he took off his own pants, and replaced his hand with his dick. Now a few tears fell softly down her face as the pain consumed her entire body. She began shaking with rage and violently clawed at nick breaking the skin and watching the blood flow down his body onto hers.

HE yelled out and hit her across the face. Only seconds later, her got up and started beating her. Nick threw her up against a wall and hit her hard in the stomach. When he was finally done, he walked away with out saying a word.

Devi just sat against the wall, and cried. She tried not to, but no matter what she did, the tears were freely falling. He had hit her many times and sexually assaulted her on countless occasions. But she never thought that it would turn into rape.

She walked over to the blanket and wrapped it around her body while trying to stop shaking. A few minutes later, the phone rang. Afraid that someone would find out what happened, she let the phone keep ringing. But as she listened to the message that the person left, she found that it was her best friend.

Devi quickly walked over to the phone and picked it up, hoping that he would still be on the line. "Jon...?" She asked meekly.

"Hey, are you ok?" He asked as though he knew what had happened.

"No, can you come over?"

"Yeah, sure. I'll be over in a few minutes"

"Thanks. I'll see you then..."

With that, Devi gently put the phone down and walked over to her dresser. She opened the mahogany drawers and pulled out a black hooded sweatshirt along with black cargo pants. When she was dressed again, she washed her face, and put on a little make-up to try and hide her red, puffy eyes. Yet she found that only made it worse, so she quickly washed it off. As she began to brush her auburn hair, Her eyes welled up with tears again. Devi tried to hold them back, but again, failed.

As she was finally able to stop her self from crying, there was a knock on her door. Instinctively, she walked over to the thin door, and opened it, hoping that it was Jon. But she was scared to see that instead, it was Nick. His eyes were glazed over in rage. Devi tried to quickly shut the door, but his strength easily out powered hers and he kept it open until he had gotten inside. Then he slammed the door shut and began yelling at her.

"You stupid slut! I knew all along that you were cheating on me with that asshole! Where the fuck is he?!"

Devi was backing away as her eyes became filled with fear and her mind was racing. She had no idea what he was talking about. Trying to contain her rage, she asked, "who are you talking about? I never cheated on you..."

"You know damn well who I mean! That asshole Jon that you're always talking about!"

"Jon is my best friend! Nothing more, although, yeah, I do wish he was more because he wouldn't beat the shit out of me every chance he got and he wouldn't ever rape me!" Devi realized as soon as she let those words slip through her mouth, she was going to have hell to pay.

Nick's eyes went pure black as he advanced towards her. His hands had been clenched into fists, and the veins in his arms were almost ripping through his skin. He raised his fist and threw the first punch, but Devi blocked it. She had already been abused today; she wasn't going to let it happen again. He threw another mock punch immediately followed by a real one. The second hit her across the face. She could feel her jaw begin to bruise. Only a moment later, Nick threw her into a wall again. AS soon as her body made impact, she fell to the floor, unable to get up. She was curled up, trying to sheild herself from anymore damage. But he kept kicking her and hitting her, each blow, made her more numb, and filled her with more rage.

Devi felt the salty tears stinging her eyes, but she refused to let them flow again. He wasn't worth her time, or her tears.

Moments later, there was another knock at the door. Nick stopped and became silent, as he glared at the door and hissed for Devi to get up. He pushed Devi into her room and shut the door, then he went and answered the door, to find Jon standing there.

"What the hell do you want?" Nick asked Jon as though Jon had no right to be there.

"I came over to see Devi. Where is she?" Jon replied holding in his hate for Nick.

"She's busy right now..."

A moment later, there was a loud sob that was heard from Devi's room. Jon looked at Nick and sneered, "if you did ANYTHING at all to hurt her, I swear to God I will kill you.."

Jon instinctively shoved past Nick and slowly opened Devi's door, to find her bruised body curled up on the floor crying.
