This is a Rebel Love Song

July 1st

Marilyn woke up the morning of July 1st feeling a little strange. She had a feeling that something bad might happen. She just hoped it wasn't going to happen to Andy, or Ronnie for that matter. Marilyn and Sammi left the boys at sound check and went to walk around a little.

As soon as her eyes set on him, she stopped dead in her tracks. A few yards away was standing her father with a couple of his buddies.

"Oh, no this can't be happening." Marilyn said as she turned her back to him.

"Marilyn, what's wrong?"

"Sh. call me Katie."

"Katie? Why?"

"I'll explain later. Now give me your sunglasses, please."

Sammi handed Marilyn her over-sized sunglasses.

"Where's Andy?" Marilyn was shaking with fear and Sammi could see. "Ma- I mean, Katie, what's wrong?"

"Where's Andy?" Marilyn growled.

"He's on stage."

"Ok, where's Ronnie?"

"Probably at his bus? Text him."

Marilyn pulled out her phone and tried to press the buttons but her hands were shaking too much.

"Here." Marilyn handed the phone to Sammi. "I can't do it. Just tell him to meet us by the merch tent near the main stage, ASAP."

"Done. He said he'll be here in a few minutes."

Almost seconds later, it seemed, Ronnie was by Marilyn's side.

"What's going on? What's wrong?"

"I need you to take me back to the buses."

"Um... ok?"

"Stand in front of me like that." She positioned him and Sammi next to her so her father wouldn't see her as they passed. Luckily, Ronnie was a big guy and blocked most of Marilyn's petite frame. As they approached Falling In Reverse's bus, a hand was placed on Marilyn's shoulder. She froze where she stood and slowly turned around.

"Found you." The voice said.

When she saw who it was, she let out a sigh of relief.

"Andy!" She threw her arms around his neck and he held her close. Ronnie decided to just let them have their moment and disappeared onto his bus.

"Yes, I saw him." Andy said almost as if he had read her mind. "I came to look for you as soon as our set was over. He didn't see you, did he?"

She shook her head.

"Thank god." He pulled her close again. "Alright, well I have a signing right now so I have to go. I'll see you later, ok? Stay with Sammi. I don't want you out there alone today with him lurking around."

He let go of her and she went over to Sammi's side. Sammi put an arm around Marilyn at an attempt to comfort her. Andy turned and walked back in the direction he came from.

As soon as he was gone, Sammi faced Marilyn. "Explaining time."

"But Ron-"

"Ronnie can wait. C'mon, let's go back to the bus and you can tell me everything."

The girls entered the bus and slumped on the couch.

"Ok, so what the fuck happened out there?"

"My Dad is here..."

"I'm not following."

"He hits me, Sammi! He beats me!" Marilyn shouted. Tears began to stream down her cheeks.

"Come here." Sammi pulled Marilyn into her and held her close to her. "What else?"

"I ran away with A-Andy." Marilyn said between sobs. "I don't want to go back. I don't want him to find me!"
"Shh, don't worry darling. We won't let him hurt you anymore, ok? You're safe here. You have Andy, Ronnie, me, Jinxx, CC and Jake to keep you safe. I promise we won't ever let this happen again."

Marilyn continued to cry in Sammi's arms until her tears turned into dry sobs. As she began to calm down, there was a knock on the door of the bus.

"Stay here." Sammi said. "I'll get it."

Sammi opened the door to find Ronnie standing outside on the scorching pavement. "Can I see Marilyn?" He asked, hopeful.

At the sound of her name, Marilyn got up off the couch and gravitated toward Ronnie. He gave her a sympathetic smile as she descended the steps and he led her to the field where they shared their first kiss. The place where everything would change.
