Twisted Twice, Twisted Mine - Episode 13
"What are you guys talking about?" Levi asks from behind us and I turn.
He looked tired and wet but alert.
I don't reply, just wait for Aaron to say something.
"I think the rain is stopping" Aaron says and we look outside and really the sky is clearing.
I feel my heart clench, my fantasy is going to end soon.
I turn my eyes to Levi, his face is blank, I want him to say something, tell me to stay or something but he just looks out the window with us.
" I should probably ge....." I begin to say but get interrupted by Levi.
"I called coach" He says and Aaron looks at me before his eyes goes back to Levi.
"Yeah?" He asks, folding his hands across his chest, "What did he say?"
"Wants me in London next weekend, talks about getting traded" He says and I take in a sharp breath.
Levi is getting traded? Why? He was doing well in the club he currently is at, I mean, he's the highest paid, what's wrong?
Aaron nods, rubbing his left brow with his index finger in a nervous gesture.
"Alright then, go and let us know how it is"Aaron says and I don't get to relish the fact he said us, automatically making us a team because Levi turns to me.
" Leave tomorrow, I know the rain has stopped and you will want to leave but just... Stay tonight"
He says and I nod.
I wish he knew that I had no plans of leaving, if only I could stay with him forever.
He leans against the wall and Aaron turns to me, giving me a small smile before leaving.
I turn Levi.
"Are you going to be able to take visitors at home?" He asks and I don't respond, there is no need to fill the silence with meaningless talk.
"I will come see you" He says after a while.
My chest hurt, thinking that he would be real surprised to see that I was a lie, everything about our 3 days together was a hoax.
I nod and don't respond, again, he glances at me and mush have decided that I was feeling as bad as he because he takes my hand and I hold tight.
The next morning came too quickly,
He walks me down stairs and walks past me as I stop to shake Aaron's hand.
"Hope to see you soon Little girl, And in more favorable conditions" He says and I nod.
I totally won't be seeing him again in person except on TV, I don't tell him that, just turn and walk out, he's behind me, Aaron.
"You don't have to take me, I can make my way by myself" He doesn't reply, just opens the door and wait for me to get in.
I take a step towards it but Aaron holds me back and turns me around.
"Levi, He likes easily, I feel like you are going to be trouble, stay away if you are...

. " He says and I know that he is on to me.
Even if he doesn't know all the details, I know he knows that I am a fraud, at the very least not who I claim to be.
"..... But if you are here to heal, you are welcome "He ends and I nod, he kisses my cheek before leading me to the car seat and buckling me in.
"See you soon, Addie" Levi gets in from the other side and starts the car.
Before he pulls away he turns to me.
"What did Aaron say?"
"He just wished me well" I lie and he nods.
He drives me out to town and I make him stop me at a bus stop, he looks hurt that I don't let him drive me all the way, I just pretend not to see it...
I step out and he doesn't, I don't say a word, it's better this way, clean cut.
He pulls away and speeds off and I take in a deep breath to swallow the tears that is threatening to come.
I know going straight home will be too risky, James might have men posted around just incase I make an appearance.
I enter a used cloth store around the block to my house and I buy a face mask and a cap.
The mask covers my nose and mouth and and the cap covers my face.
I find a payphone near a grocery store and I make my to it, I dial in Pam's number and she picks on the 3rd ring.
I don't say anything, just incase they are with her or the phone is wired or something.
"Addie?" She asks after some seconds and I breath fine.
"Oh my God, you are fine" She says and I hear the tears..
"I'm fine baby, how are you? Did James show up again?"
"No no, I'm fine, I was so worried, how are you? What happened? Where are you?"
"I'm around the block from our house, I want to come home, I'm scared"
"Don't come home, I noticed a guy hanging around, wait I will come to you" She says.
I disconnect and I buy some instant coffee and take a sip, I watch the window and a familiar face walks past it to the door.
She looks around and sees me, she looks around again before walking to me, we move to a seat, her back to a door, mine to the door.
I'm soo not taking any chances.
"Where have you been? You look okay, what happened?"
I take a deep breath before telling her everything.
She looks looks shell shocked and I don't fault her, it still seems like a dream to me.
