After We Collided (After, #2) by Anna Todd Read Online (FREE)
THE ROOM IS FULL of rows of plants. Who would want to mess with this shit all day for a living?
“What are you doing here?” I hear him before I lay eyes on him.
He’s standing next to a large box or some shit; when he steps out I take a step toward him.
“Don’t play fucking stupid, you know exactly what I’m doing here.”
He smiles. “No, sorry, I don’t. The study of botany doesn’t require psychic powers.”
He mocks me with those dumb fucking goggles on his head. “You actually have the nerve to be a smug asshole about it?”
“I’m not being a dick at all. You’re the one treating her like shit, so don’t get pissed when she runs to me because of it.”
“Are you that fucking stupid to mess with what is mine?”
He backs away and walks down the aisle next to me. “She isn’t yours. You don’t own her,” he challenges.
I reach across the boxes of plants to wrap my hand around his neck—and slam his face into the metal barrier between us. I hear a crisp snap, so I already know what happened. But when he lifts his head up and shouts “You broke my fucking nose!” while struggling to get out of my grip, I have to admit that the amount of blood pouring from his face is a little alarming.
“I already warned you over and over for fucking months now to stay away from Tessa, but then what do you do? You fucking kiss her, have her sleep in your goddamn bed?” I stride down the aisle to get to him again.
His hand is covering his broken nose as blood pours down his face. “And I already fucking told you that I don’t give a fuck what you’ve got to say,” he snarls, taking a step toward me. “You just broke my fucking nose!” he yells again.
Tessa is going to fucking kill me.
I should just leave now. He deserves to get his ass beat, again, but she’s going to be furious.
“You’ve done worse shit to me, you keep messing with my girlfriend!” I shout back.
“She isn’t your girlfriend, and I haven’t even begun to mess with her yet.”
“Are you actually fucking threatening me right now?”
“I don’t know, am I?”
I take another step toward him, and he surprises me by swinging on me. His fist connects with my jaw and I stagger backward, knocking into a wooden box of plants. They crash to the ground, and as I recover, he swings again in a fury, but this time I’m able to block him and stumble to the side.
“You thought I was just a bitch, didn’t you?” He grins a deranged and bloody grin and continues to walk toward me. “You really thought you were a badass, didn’t you?” He laughs, pausing to spit blood onto the white tile floor.
My fingers wrap around the material of his lab coat, and I push him into another row of plants; the plants and our bodies hit the ground. I climb on top of him, making sure not to let him be in control. Out of the corner of my eye I see him raise his arm, but by the time I realize what’s happening, he’s slammed one of the small pots against the side of my head.
