I hugged the blankets tighter as I flipped the page I just finished reading, I found out that Bella forgot to take her book The Spanish Love Deception so I decided to read it.

Seb had fallen asleep but I didn't feel sleepy so I just came here and sat in the garden, the smell of roses filled my nose as my green eyes scanned every word on each page.

The warm ear hitting my face moved some of my hair out of my face frame as the sound of the gardens trees and flowers moved slightly due to the wind being the only sound booming in my ears.

After reading a few pages, I heard small footsteps so I turned my head to see Madeline rubbing her eyes as she carried her blanket with her over her shoulder.

"Hey sweetheart" I smiled softly at her and she muttered a small 'Hi', she walks towards me with her blanket as she took a seat next to me on the couch.

Her blue eyes flickered from her fingers to my book and I immediately closed it not being ready to let her read any fucking page of the book.

"Why did you wake up?" I asked as I pushed a strand of her blonde hair behind her ear, "A monster" She whispers as she hugged her knees to her chest.

"Did someone come inside your room?" I asked panicking, "No, in my dweam" she replies as she covered herself with the blanket.

"It's okay baby, no one will hurt you" I pulled her to lay her head on my chest as she immediately nuzzles herself to me, "I wouldn't let them" I mutter to myself as I placed my chin on top of her head.

"You will pwotect me?" She asks as she looked at me through her long thick lashes, "Always" I state as I applied a kiss on her forehead letting my lips linger.

Placing my book on the table in front of us, I laid down with my hands wrapped around Maddy as I covered us with the blankets, I took the small pillows of the couch and placed them under us as I rested my face on the palm of my hand.

"Gowd Night, Wosa" Madeline mumbles after a couple of minutes, and a small smile appear on my lips, "Night princess" I whispered as I kissed her forehead.

Okay so the plan was to make sure she fell asleep and then carry her to her room, after that I go to my room and sleep but since when do I follow any plan?

"Look how pathetic you are Sebastian, your mother left you, and now your girlfriend" my father chuckles as he throws another bottle of beer on the floor making it shatter to pieces.

I clenched my jaw as I tried to calm myself down. I turned around ready to leave this fucking hell but the feeling of a hand grabbing the back of my neck made me stop.

My hands curls into fists when my father started moving the money in front of my face, "This is the bills you have to pay, spend one Euro and I will let you pay all the bills yourself" He states and I rolled my eyes before taking the money from him.
