My Second Chance

Chapter 9: #9 Getting To Know Each Other

Ryder's P.O.V

I carried her up the stairs with ease. She weighs like a feather.

I walked softly, making no noise against the ground to avoid waking the perfect angel in my arms. I opened the room with my elbows and foot. It wasn't as easy as I thought. I hope nobody saw it, it isn't one of my brightest moment.

Don't judge.

I laid her down on the bed. Not bothering about the dirt. I stared at her wounds and her bloody hair. I'm going to kill Alec for hurting her, Jay growled. I know. But he was just doing his job, we can't blame him, I answered. I felt anger for Alec, but it wasn't his fault. I opened a drawer from my bedside table and got out the first aid kit. I dabbed at her wounds with some disinfection. She winced in her sleep. I cleaned her wounds gently, trying my best to not hurt her.
