Why am I being such a coward?
No, compose yourself, Shelly.
I opened my eyes when I heard Blake snorting in disbelief, almost like he was laughing at me.
You have Max with you, Shelly.
"What the hell was that, Max?" I whisper yelled as soon as I got into my bedroom.I threw my school bag on the bed and twisted around to face Max. He had a forlorn look on his face while he shook his head negatively at me. When I raised an eyebrow questioningly at him, he sighed dejectedly and looked down.Feeling my temper rising, I stomped towards him, my two hands clenched tightly by my sides. Max glanced up worriedly when he heard my advancing steps, his eyes widening in
I loosened my arms from around his neck and pulled apart but he embraced me once again, this hug lasting even longer than the first one."Max? What's wrong?" I asked him softly.He only tightened the hug in response and exhaled slowly while keeping his chin on top of my left shoulder. I leaned more into him, feeling the need to comfort him all of a sudden.

"So?" Max smirked at me once the movie was over."So, what?" I looked at him wearily while he leaned down to kiss me."Stop it."

I sighed softly in my pillow and fidgeted a little bit to get a better position. I was spra
I looked past my right shoulder and frowned. No way! I did hear someone approaching. I'm hundred percent sure that someone has been following me since I left school. I turned back around and quickened my pace. I gulped hard and speedily walked while skipping once in a while to get away.Why? Just why did I have to stay back at school to revise for my upcoming exams? Why? It's so dark out here and that stupid Max did not even come to fetch me. He left me alone to fend for myself and who was making big big talks about protecting me. Protection, my foot! I mean, who even needs protection? I'm fine by myself, yeah right. See, I'm even wandering around i
Shelly’s point of view; I slowly opened my eyes and found myself lying on the floor. My head somehow aches. I was just about to get up but I couldn't. It was then that I realized that my hands and feet were tied up with ropes. I pushed myself up and leaned my back against the cold wall. I looked around but could barely see anything. It was dark and only the beam of the moon penetrating through the window served as my light from where I was.
