Travis Maddox learned two things from his mother before she died: Love hard. Fight harder. Finally, the highly anticipated.
Thank God for Travis. Thank God for his instructions not to take drinks from anyone but him and his cousin, because they treat girls with all the respect in the world and are the most upstanding citizens to take drinks from.
They are still a foursome when Travis gets called for another fight. He asks Abby to go with him.
When will my book be dispatched from your warehouse?
America gives her non-Abbyish clothes to wear a deep cut, yellow halter top and tight, low-rise jeans. Travis's mouth fell open. Are you trying to get me killed? You've gotta change, Pidge. America grabbed her hips. Something comfortable. Abby gets changed. Then she gets on his stupid motorcycle again while he drives dangerously.
When they get there, Travis claims he can go his entire fight without getting hit. Abby calls bullshit. Travis offers to make a bet. He won't sleep with anyone for a month if he gets hit.
If he doesn't get hit she has to continue living with him in his apartment for a month. I don't even have words to express how I felt when this stupid girl took this stupid bet, but she does. Travis wins. She must live with him. I think when you take away someone's constant choice to be with you then it becomes skeevy.
Shepley gets angry at Abby for the agreement because she promised not to get involved with Travis. Whenever Travis screws around with the best friend of the girl he's dating it ends badly for him.
Of course, he doesn't fight with Travis or demand promises of Travis, no he screams at the girl.
Abby insists there's nothing sexual between them and that there never will be. Travis comes out of the shower during all her insisting and gets annoyed. As revenge he goes to a bar, comes home at two AM with not one but two girls.
He goes into the room where Abby is sleeping, fishes through his bedside table for some condoms and heads back out into the living room to have a threesome.
She sits there listening to him giggling and moaning etc because she can't leave the bedroom without walking through the living room where his little threesome is going on. When he's finished, he kicks the girls out, and he gets back in bed with her reeking of whiskey. She gets out of bed, steps over condom wrappers and sleeps on the reclining chair. In the morning, America acts like a real friend for the first time and packs Abby's things to take her home.
Even Shepley is contrite. Travis wanders in during this conversation, having already been out to download all of Abby's favorite foods for the month she will be staying with him.
I'm going to pause and say gifts after emotional or physical abuse are part of a pretty common cycle. Abby stays because Abby is an idiot who insists a bet is a bet. Travis apologizes and hedges around letting her out of the bet. When Abby indicates it is the only thing keeping her there he holds her to it.
While she's living with Travis, Abby starts a tentative relationship with a boy named Parker who seems pretty decent. Travis responds as one might expect even though he has made no real romantic gesture towards Abby when she leaves a party with Parker. He leaned in, seeming flustered. He seemed stunned at my confession and then his features turned severe. If he ends up holding you down in the backseat of a car, don't come crying to me.
Of course, Parker is not really a rapist.
Travis is just insinuating it to scare Abby into going home with him. Because Travis is the safe choice. Parker behaves like a gentleman, kissing her cheek goodnight. Travis is waiting so close to the door that he opens it before she can push which causes her to fall in. He does this just about every time she goes on a date with Parker. The only exception, I believe, was when he drunkenly went down to the car where they were kissing and pulled her out of it. The wheels of Parker's shiny Porsche squealed out of the parking lot, and Travis lit a cigarette.
I nodded for America to go ahead and she reluctantly complied. I crossed my arms, ready for a fight, preparing myself to lash out at him after the inevitable lecture. Travis took several drags from his cigarette, and when it was obvious that he wasn't going to explain my patience ran out. Because he was mauling you in front of my apartment!
His eyes were unfocused, and I could see he was incapable of rational conversation. I kept my voice calm. He flicked his cigarette to the ground. Don't let him fuck you in a car like a cheap prom date.
More vomit inducing craziness in which Abby accuses him of spying on her. He tells her he doesn't want to know about when she sleeps with Parker. She says that would be a big step for her. He says that's what all girls say. Abby says, "I don't mean the sluts you deal with! I mean me! I haven't Ugh is right.
I think waiting for someone you're really comfortable with and really in love with is a good thing, but I also never felt superior to girls who felt differently about it. The girl on girl hate in this book is ridiculous. But just when he thinks he is invincible, Abby Abernathy brings him to his knees. Every story has two sides. In Beautiful Disaster, Abby had her say.
