Purple has gotten herself into it again. A new Red has appeared, this Red seemed different, he seemed as someone Purple could put her heart and trust into, but as Purple's Naivety took over, this Red began to take all that Purple had to give, a place to stay, a job, a new beginning, and unconditional love. Purple's father warned her that this Red was trouble, she didn't listen and continued to try her hardest to make a life with the new Red.
Things became rough, Purple's father kicked out Red and Purple followed suit. Purple was very loyal to anyone who would give her the love and attention she craved, she wanted to be there for people, making people happy was all that made her happy, it's just so hard to see through the bliss.
Purple's father allowed Purple and Red to come back on the condition that Red do everything he ask and apologize; Red agreed. By the end of the month, Purple and Red were looking for a place to get together, Red suggested Purple stay with her parents while he get a place and career established, Purple refused. She wanted to go then and there, and Red couldn't afford an apartment on his terrible salary, they could only survive with eachother, and so they did. For 5 months, that is.
Things were great, Red and Purple moved in together, had their own food, their own responsibilities and did whatever they could ever want or please, no one ever telling them to do anything. Purple fell more and more in love with Red as time passed, and as did he, or so she assumed. Things were going perfect, a great sex life, definitely not too much of a struggle to make ends meat, everything was fine.
Red quit quit one of his 2 jobs due to lack of hours. He didn't feel the need to talk about it with Purple because why should he? He's a grown man, he can make decisions for himself. Purple just sighed and didn't say anything about it, she knew she was the better provider money-wise, her job paid the bills while Red's maybe paid for some luxuries here and there. Purple was okay though, as long as Red loved her she didn't mind working to support the two of them. She didn't mind it at all.
Due to the lack of more revenue, Purple decided to get another job but working nights, sometimes pulling 16 hour shifts, but it was worth it for her love, right? Not really... She hated her new night job, the people she would work with were awful and acted cruelly to her and customers. Purple thought it wasn't right to act like that, we're supposed to be professional, not rude. Purple told Orange, one of the other cashiers, that they shouldn't act like that. Orange snapped at Purple and that was it. Purple was tired of it.
Purple told Red how much she hated her job and that she was feeling sick all the time, it was hard for her to work so much and with people so awful. Red didn't care, with Purple working two jobs, he only had one job, working 3 hours a day during the week, he had it easy, why would he get another job to make it easier for Purple? She'll be fine.
As Purple's sickness continued, she also noticed that she hadn't gotten her period since late January, she began to worry that she may be pregnant. She took a pregnancy test, the first one came out invalid. She took another one and it came out negative. She took a sigh of relief and didn't worry about it for another month. Her sickness continued.
April came, and Purple was still experiencing sickness and fatigue, she thought maybe the pregnancy tests were wrong, she decided to buy another one and take it at work. Right before her shift, she peed on the stick and covered it and put it in her purse, awaiting the results that she'll get in two hours, the result that will change everything.
Positive. It was positive. Purple frantically took another. Positive. She became white, scared of what to tell Red, scared of what to tell anyone. She laid on the bathroom floor for a few minutes and cried. Purple has always wanted to be a mother but she knew that Red wouldn't approve and for good reasons. She just couldn't ignore her baby's need for life. Purple turned to her best friend, Yellow, and asked her what she could do, what to do, just anything, she was just so confused and scared.
Yellow comforted, she told her to tell Red as soon as possible, let him know how you feel and if he loves you, he'll understand. Purple hugged Yellow and cried. Yellow was such a good friend, always there for her.
After Purple got home from work that night, she took a nap right beside red until he got up early to go to his job across the street; he helped children crossing the road get to school. Nothing too hard.Purple heard the door slam and she awoke from her nap. She gave Red a kiss on the lips and a hug. His kissed and hugged her back as well.
Purple dragged red into bed with her and kissed him again, he obliged and held her close to him. Purple stopped for a moment and looked into Red's eyes. "I need to tell you something."
Red stopped, confused. What would she need to tell him? "What is it?" Purple took a deep breath and held onto Red's hands. "I'm pregnant." Red's face drained of all color.
"Are you sure?" he asked. Purple took another breath. "I took 2 tests, they said positive. I'll go to the doctor Monday to verify." Red sighed a breath of relief. "So you're not 100% sure you're pregnant, so you probably aren't." Purple turned away and closed her eyes. "Yeah, sure..."
Monday came, the doctor was really nice. She told Purple just to pee in the little cup and they'll verify her pregnancy or not. Purple did as she was told and silently waited for the results. Purple began to feel light headed and nauseous. The doctor came back in and confirmed the pregnancy.
Purple knew she couldn't hide this from Red or her parents, it was only a matter of time before she started showing. Her parents took it better than she expected, they were excited to be grandparents but were still wary of Red's intentions. Purple assured her parents it was okay, they didn't seem convinced but for Purple's sake they just nodded their heads and went on.
Red didn't want to believe he was going to be a father. He was too young, he was too unestablished, he didn't even have a car or stable job yet! This couldn't be happening. He urgently looked for another job, which he found within a week or two of searching, unfortunately he was forced to quit his easy job across the street in order to make it to his new job on time.
Things between Purple and Red became strained, Purple was always wanting love and affection from Red but he wasn't interested, Purple started to lose her self confidence all over again, feeling inadequate of pleasing Red as she used to. Purple would cook dinners for Red, rub his back and feet, and do whatever he asked. She would buy him nice gifts and treats, even games he could play to replace some he lost from a previous relationship. She just wanted Red to know she loved him and would do anything to make it work.
As things became even more strained and distant, Purple noticed Red talking to other girls online, she became suspicious. Purple waited for Red to go to work before looking at what he has been doing on her laptop these past few days. Her heart broke as she saw all the dirty messages he was sending to other women. Her heart broke even more as she found a video he sent to another woman of him pleasuring himself for her.
Purple first felt depressed, and then anger. Purple called him at work, she told him she knew about it all. She awaited for him to come home from work to talk about it all. She asked him why, he told her he didn't know. It just happened. Purple told him she loved him but this wasn't right. She wanted to make it work, even through the affair, she told him to stop talking to the women and he said he would.
Red told Purple he didn't know if he wanted to be together anymore, he said he couldn't forgive himself for hurting her like that. Purple told him that if he forgave himself, she would try to forgive him as well. Purple told him if he ended the relationship, she wouldn't forgive him, she said he would be a coward if he ran away like that.
Weeks passed, things were getting worse and worse. Red began smoking cigarettes, several a day, almost a pack. Purple was concerned and asked him why he was smoking so much. He just told her because he was trying to relax and think. Purple tried to let him do what he wanted but she didn't condone his smoking, she tried to stop him but he became agitated each time.
She blocked him from the back door, telling him to talk to her and stop smoking. He became angrier. "I'm a grown a** man, I can smoke if I ******** want to. Let me ******** smoke." Purple stood her ground. Red grabbed her, and pushed her aside, she continued to block him, he just kept pushing her aside. Purple gave up, if he wants to kill himself, what can she do about it? Nothing. He's a "grown a** man", obviously.
What Purple didn't know is that was a sign. A sign of the past, his father's past, specifically. Red had expressed how his father was abusive and how they didn't get along because of it. Purple tried to be very understanding but there was only so much she could say or do, she'd just leave it be half the time.
Purple caught a cold from Red, for some reason her cold became worse than his, she could hardly breathe and her nose was red as red could be, she decided to go to bed early one night after having intercourse with Red, she wasn't prepared for what would happen next.
Purple woke up early to see Red talking to a girl online, she noticed it as one of the girls he was talking to previously. Purple became angry and she asked Red, who he was talking about. "Don't worry about it." He changed the screen and continued watching an anime show. Purple couldn't let this go, this was the last straw.
Purple told him she wanted to see, and he refused. He tried to close the window but Purple wouldn't allow him, it was her laptop afterall, Purple thought if anything was on her laptop, she had all the right to look at it. Red begged to differ. Purple tried to look one last time and then Red grabbed her and threw her onto the ground. Purple's wrath began to fill her heart, she kept trying to look at the window, Red kept grabbing and restraining her from the laptop, he held her in his arms, in a choke hold, Purple began to scream, he put his hand over her mouth and she bit him as hard as she could to get him to release her.
He yelled as Purple drew blood, she made a run for the bedroom again, only for Red to grab and restrain her to the ground, he was yelling and telling Purple she has to leave. He began dragging Purple to the front door of their apartment, Purple refused to give up, she moved her feet in a position between two walls to stay in the apartment, when Red knew he wouldn't get her out he picked her up and threw her onto the couch and began yelling at her.
Purple glared at him and yelled back. She went back to the bed room and closed the laptop and began frantically searching for her cell phone. Red came into the bedroom and looked at her with hate in his eyes, Purple looked back at him, she saw his fists clench she yelled at him.
"Are you going to hit me?" He growled. "You're not worth hitting." That made it very clear that Purple had to leave. She searched for her phone, she was going to call her father but remembered he was at work. She called 911 to report the incident and call an ambulance to make sure the baby was okay.
The police and paramedics came shortly after, Purple told them all she could remember, Red told them his side. Things went and gone. Purple moved out of the apartment 2 days later. She took everything that belonged to her. Red didn't deserve anything she had given him, at least that's how she felt. Her heart filled with rage and fear, she couldn't look at him the way she once did.
They just weren't meant to be. She should have known. She really, should have known...
