Where Have You Been? (Michael Clifford LS)
as the guys and I were getting ready for an interview I heard my phone ring from the bunks I saw Rebel's number flash across the screen so I answered "hey Luke you might want to sit down I have something to tell you" I sat on the couch "ok what's going on?" I heard shuffling before he spoke again "I know she won't say anything because she just wants to forget but I'm going to tell you because I feel like you need to know, Ash got attacked last night" I felt my brotherly instincts kick in "is she ok?!?!" I ask the panic in my voice became obvious "she's fine but you need to know that it was Max" I let out a sigh "I was afraid this was going to happen I'll be there tomorrow morning" I say the door opens and the others walk on with coffee in hand Calum hands me and and I nod a thanks and walk towards the kitchen part of the bus "don't pack up just yet Luke" "does she need me to come over there?" I ask "no we are good right now but if things get worse I will let you know for sure I'll talk to you later" I nod even though he couldn't see "alright keep me in the loop when it comes to my sister, she is my number one priority" I said hanging up and proceeding to take a sip from my coffee "hey is everything ok?" Michael asked I shook my head "alright guys time for a unhappy trip down memory lane I know that this is not my story to tell but you need to know because the road is about to get bumpy" I know it's going to be hard but I continue anyway "it was about 4 years ago, Ash started dating this guy named Max in the begin he was a super nice dude but turns out it was just a front she started coming home with random bruises and I would ask her but I got lame excuses I knew something was up so one day I decided to follow them on one of there dates so I hid in the crowds just watching as he would order her to do things and was just horrible to her but then he took her to his house I just hid behind the shrubs and listened in on what they were saying "so bitch how's dinner coming?" she was terrified I could hear it in her voice "it's almost done Max" she brings it out and sets it on the table bringing him a soda in a glass he took a bite of the pasta and he spit it out grabs the glass and throws it at her head she bolts up the stairs and he storms after her so I got out from my hiding spot and ran in I listened for the scuffle and as soon as I heard a scream I ran as fast as I could and slammed a door open "you little bitch thinking you're to good for me you're not good for anyone" he had her by the neck against the wall that's when I noticed her dress was in his hand it was torn to shreds I felt my blood boil she was my sister I was suppose to protect her from things like this she spat in his face "I'm so done with you" she shouted he pulled a fist back but I ran in and caught it I threw him to the floor I started punching him until he was out cold and Asher put her hand on my shoulder "come on Luke" so I grabbed my sister and we never looked back I called the cops and he was arrested they charged him with abuse and intent to harm as well as" I stopped trying to force the words to come out "attempted rape" by now the guys were in a state of shock "he swore that he would have his revenge in court when they found him guilty, I found out right after we moved here that he was released" the guys look at each other "well we are here to help" Calum said Michael and Ashton nod and we pull up to the building. once inside Michael pulls me inside "so this Max guy is he the reason you said your sister would never love again?" I nod "but I know you are the one that can change that" he smiled "now lets go we've got an interview to do". as we sat in the studio the woman sat in her chair as we were in ours "so guys any special ladies in your life right now?" she asks "nope" Calum said "no not yet" Ashton said "my sister is pretty special" I say she nods "Asher Hemmings from Gone Rouge right?" I nod she looks at Michael "you and Asher seem to be getting pretty close anything going on between you guys" she asked he shook his head but before he could say anything Ashton spoke up "it's like they are in a relationship and they are the only ones who don't know that" he said "we are not in a relationship, she's my best friend" Michael says the woman laughs slightly and goes about finishing the interview, "alright thank you so much guys and I hope to talk to you all again soon" we wave bye to the cameras and took care of everything that needed to be done. once we finished we head back to the bus and start to relax "I'm hungry you guys want to go out and get lunch?" Ashton asked we all agree and follow out of the bus to a local small town diner "I'm gonna call my sister I'll meet you guys inside" they nod and walk inside while I dial her number "hey Luke" she had some happiness in her voice "hey Ash" her happiness made me smile "I need to tell you something, I know what happened last night and I know you are going to hate me for this but I told the guys about that night back home" it was silent for what felt like forever "you what!" she screamed "I told them, but I need you to know that the only reason I told them was so they could help protect you in the future" I heard her sigh "you're right"
