(A/N: Hey guys! New Story. THIRD Chapter. Read, enjoy then Review please!) She had had four pages since 6:15. Two from Adam and one each from Selena and Rachel. She sighed and put the beeper back. Snuggling back up to Matt, she closed her eyes after setting her watch's alarm for 7:15.

Chapter 3

As the alarm went off, Chelsea opened her eyes and turned it off. Matt shifted a bit then leaned up on his elbows.

"Good morning..." he said drowsily.

"Morning." Chelsea smiled, kissing him on the cheek.

"Why the early morning call?" Matt asked, rubbing the sleep out of his eyes.

"I've got a class in half an hour and I gotta get home and change." she said quietly sitting up and looking around the room for her shirt.

"In half an hour? That soon? Maybe you should leave like right now quickly or you won't get there in time." Matt said.

"I kind of need a shirt though...." Chelsea said some-what sarcastically.

" uh..... here." Matt said tossing her a white shirt from his closet.

It would do she thought, maybe they won't notice the difference.

She put on the shirt and walked down to the door with Matt.

"So you'll call me right?" He asked.

"Of course why wouldn't I?" Chelsea laughed as she walked out, into the cool brisk morning air.

Half way home, she walked into a rain storm. She ran to her dorm and pounded on the door waiting for Selena or Rachel to open the door and let her in before she drowned in the water pouring down on her.

(Back to the story!!! We're back to where the other part of the story was...just gonna cut to the end of where we left off)

- - - - - - - -

Her short light brown hair hung down to her shoulders, hiding her face from Rachel, Selena and Adam, who were staring at her like she was the thing from the black lagoon.

Finally someone moved, Adam left the room for a while.

"Chels, tell me you didn't." Selena said.

"Didn't what?" Chelsea asked absently, still eating her cereal.

Chelsea would have laughed at how red Selena turned, but she was too tired to.

After gulping air for a bit, Selena finally spoke.

"Where were you last night and this morning??"

- - - - - - - -

Chelsea looked at Rachel with a mixed emotion; it looked rather surprised and confused. She decided to play dumb.

"What do you mean Rach?" she asked.

This time Chelsea couldn't resist laughing at how red Rachel's face turned. Rachel just seemed to clam up, so Selena said it for her.

"Did you spend the night at Matt's?" She asked rather easily compared to Rachel.

". . . . Maybe . . . ." was all they got.

- - - - - - - -

Selena, Rachel and Adam's worlds all seemed to have crashed to a halt with what followed in the following two weeks.

The only time they saw Chelsea seemed to be early in the morning when she came home to change and in whichever class they had with her, and lately she hadn't even been in class. Finally, after nearly two weeks, Adam snapped.

"Chelsea I need to talk to you." Adam said in a calm, stern voice.

"Sure Ads" Chelsea smiled, her normal personality always there for Adam.

"I think that you really need to think about things before they go any further." Adam said quietly.

"Think about what things?" Chelsea asked not wanting to believe her best friend was telling her that he too didn't like Matt.

"About..." Adam started to lose his confidence seeing the look on Chelsea's face, " Ma-"

"Why does everyone hate him so much?" Chelsea cut in hearing his name.

"I could kinda understand Rachel and Selena not liking him because they tried to make a move on him, but Adam you're my best friend, and he hasn't done anything to you." Chelsea said, tears forming in her eyes.

"It's not that I hate him Chelsea, and believe me it has nothing to do with us wanting you to be happy or not it's that he has an affect on you. . . maybe you can't see it of feel it when you're around him but we can see it. Chelsea, you've been drinking, smoking, coming to classes late or just not even showing up, then coming to the next one half asleep and telling your friends that ' Your back's never been bent so many ways ' [Which by the way is Nasty Chels they didn't want to know along with me ]! He's not healthy for you Chelsea, and we don't want to see you get hurt when a guy like him decides to get a new toy!" Adam yelled.

"Well Adam if that's the way you really feel why don't you tell HIM that?!?" Chelsea yelled back, looking at him defiantly.

When Adam just stared at her with an angry gaze, she stormed out of the room.

- - - - - - - -

Chelsea lay on her back on Matt's bed, her short hair hanging down the side of the bed as she stared at the ceiling, the moments of what last happened still burning in her mind, as fresh as the tears on her cheeks.

Let's just say it was a normal 'night' so they were doing normal 'things', and they got not so normal, Matt got rough with her started slapping her around, yelling at her and punching her arms harder than any friendly punch, before she finally shoved him off of her he had had his hands around her neck trying to choke her. Just as she thought she was going to die she managed to get him off of her and he stormed into the bathroom.

"M-Matt . . . let me go home. . ." Chelsea choked out, tears streaming down her face as she sat up.

He came out of the bathroom, and looked at her. There was a cut across his face from one of Chelsea's rings where she had hit him trying to get him off of her.

He had a really angry look on his face, Chelsea stood up trying not to lose her confidence . . . but she HAD seen Matt take down a guy way bigger than him.

"So . . . you're . . . leaving." Matt spat out the last word as if it were a frog he just discovered in his throat.

"Y-Yes I am." Chelsea said once more, trying to sound as defiant as Adam did.


- - - - - - - -

Adam ran through the dormitory to where Rachel and Selena were sitting at the counter, the phone at the other end.

"Answer the phone its Chelsea, I know it is!" Adam said, trying to stop but sliding in his socks into the counter.

"Hello?" Selena asked boredly, after lazily answering the phone.

"Selena? Where's Adam?" Chelsea's panicked voice came through.

"Chelsea?" Adam asked as he got the phone, "What's wrong where are you?"

"I'm at some dance club, look Matt got. . .rough with me and he nearly choked me until I pushed him off of me, I just said I was altogether leaving and he slapped me, then he dragged me to the car and then at the dance club he punched me too, Adam can you come pick me up please? I'm so scared he'll hit me again, I really don't want to be hit again." She said quickly and tearfully.

"okay Chelsea I'll come and get you." Adam said throwing the phone at Rachel, then running out the room, and out of the dorm.
