"Alista? Alista are you okay?" a voice asks and my eyes pop open.
"B-Brett..?" I stutter and lean to rest my head against his chest.
"I'm here, it's okay," he mumbles and kisses my forehead.
I hear footsteps.
"Alista! Are you o-" Cody cuts off when he notices me wrapped in Brett's arms.
"What the hell?" he shouts, and I flinch.
"Cody, meet Brett." I say and Cody's eyes glaze over with rage.
"I'm sorry, who?" he asks directly at me, and fear courses through my veins.
"Brett. Y'know, Ina's dad." I say firmly and he stalks towards us.
"That is no way to talk to me, bitch!" he snarls and a whimper escapes my lips.
I feel movement and the next thing I know, I'm being shielded from Cody's view by Brett.
"Back the fuck up," Brett says calmly, but I know he's losing his temper.
A fight breaks out
