A/N: So, here is part 4 of nightmares and bruises!! I hope you all like it! This is short but I’m going to try and post another part tonight. Requests are open.
Y/N woke early and carefully pulled herself out of Billy’s grip. She was aware of the bruises he had left on her neck and made a mental reminder to grab a scarf before leaving to meet Steve. She quickly got changed, grabbed her bag and then walked downstairs. She ate a quick breakfast before grabbing a bucket and starting to chop up and throw in all the meat they had in the house. She had planned to sneak out before Billy woke up and just leave a note and the spare set of keys. However, as always, her plan seemed to backfire.
“What are you doing?” Billy’s voice was still very dozy but he was looking from the bucket to her quite rapidly.
“Science project.” She quickly said as she finished adding the meat. She washed her hands as Billy moved forward to take a look in the bucket.
“With a shit tonne of raw meat?” He raised an eyebrow.
“Yeah, Dustin is making enzyme volcanoes and wants to investigate which one reacts with hydrogen peroxide better. Obviously, it will be liver but it’s his project.” She shrugged to emphasise her point before she turned to make sure she had everything she could need in her bag.
“You need a lift?” He questioned as he grabbed a glass of water.
“No, I should be fine walking but I’ve got to get going.” Y/N quickly pulled on a thin jacket, that she would later regret, and went to walk to the door where her bag and bucket were waiting.
Billy caught her arm. “You know I wouldn’t really count you as someone to sleep with someone and run.” There was a smile on his face but she could see the insecurity behind his eyes.
She raised an eyebrow and grabbed his face and roughly kissed him. “I can’t avoid this, it’s important.” She rested her forehead against his.
“Yeah, sorry. How ‘bout I pick you up at 8. We could actually go somewhere.” He asked with a small smile.
“Yeah, okay.” She smiled before turning to leave. Her nerves were catching up and she started shaking.
“You sure you’re okay, princess?” Billy asked still stood in the kitchen as she reached the door.
“Yeah it’s just… I’m not sure when it happened, but I fell in love with you, Billy Hargrove, and it was the best thing I’ve ever done.” She smiled before quickly leaving before he could reply. He stood there frozen in her kitchen. He was unable to comprehend that she could love him back.
Y/N walked quickly to the meeting place to find Steve and Dustin already waiting. Steve threw her a pair of gloves and they set off. Dustin was a few steps in front of them when Steve noticed the marks on her neck. “Y/N?”
“Yeah?” She turned to him.
“What’s on your neck?” He asked.
“Nothing.” She said pulling her collar up and mentally scolding herself for forgetting a scarf.
“You sure?” He raised an eyebrow like an annoyed mother.
“Yep. Let’s get monster hunting.”
