Reaching over, I silence the alarm on my phone. Knox’s arm tightens around my waist and he groans at me in protest.
Sliding from his grasp, I swing my legs over the side of the bed and yawn. The sun hasn’t come up yet, but I don’t care; I like to run in the dark.
“Bailey, please you promised,” Knox whispers.
Turning, I find him watching me with a sad look on his face.
“I’ll be back soon.”
Climbing off the bed, I get dressed; grab my phone and running armband from the nightstand, and head for the door.
“You promised,” he says, more forcefully.
“No, I said I’d try Knox and I did, but it’s not working.”
Reaching for the handle, I pull open the door and walk outside. I quickly drink some water and walk to the door to put on my shoes. Knox exits the bedroom rubbing his face while watching me tie my laces.
“You didn’t try hard enough darlin’.”
“Jesus Christ, Knox! Would you leave me alone!” I yell at him, as I force my hair into a ponytail.
“Fine, if you want to be like that then fine!” he shouts at me. I can see the hurt and anger mixed on his face, but I don’t care. I need to get out of here.
“I have to go, Knox, I’ll see you later.”
“If you walk out that door Bailey…”
“What?” I ask, turning back to him.
“Don’t come back,” he whispers, begging me with his eyes to stay. My heart is already numb, the only person who could actually hurt me just did.
