Welcome to new readers, try chap. one and two. Thank u for reading from the beginning, Kristine and Kayleigh.
For the rest of our ride Alicia wouldn't stop asking me vragen about my secret assailant.
"Are u really going to meet him? Do u have any idea who he is? How does he know your name? Why didn't u run away in the forest? What does he want with you? Why won't he toon u who he is?!?" she asked.
"I DON'T KNOW!!" I shouted, but then I immediately apologized and said, "Sorry for yelling but I am just as confused as u are right now so don't ask anymore questions."
When we got home pagina we went to the basement and played Wii and talked about our plan for when I was supposed to meet my mystery assailant. We then figured out that Alicia would be in my room with the window open and the lights off listening to our conversation and watching what happens. She was not supposed to speak and we thought it would be best if she tried not to verplaats either.
I looked at the clock on the DVD player. 10:27 pm. My parents should be going to bed any minuut now. Right after I thought that, my mom poked her head in the basement and said, " Emily, your dad and I are going to bed now. Are u girls sleeping down there?"
"No," I responded, "We'll be sleeping in my room."
"Okay good night!"
"Love you, 'night!"
Alicia and I went upstairs and got dressed in our PJs just in case my mom came in to check on us and wondered what we were doing. At 11:30 pm Alicia shut off the light and opened the window. I grabbed a flashlight and snuck down the stairs hoping that they wouldn't creak.
I left out the side door on the garage and went around to the front of the house. I turned on the flashlight and saw a figure clad in black sitting on the steps in front of the seconde front door. "James?" I called out quietly. The figure rose and came toward me.
"Shhh," he zei while still walking towards me. "Let's just sit on the steps and talk for a second." I did what he asked and followed him back to the steps and sat down volgende to him. James smelled faintly of a warm amber scent. "This is going to be really weird and really hard but I want to get to know u better and be your friend."
"Ummm, okay I guess?" I replied. "You are one of the strangest people I've ever met. I mean who greets someone door sneaking up on them in a forest and holding their hands behind their back?"
James laughed aloud and said, "Well apparently I do but can we just verplaats on from that now?"
"Fine. What do u even want to talk about?" I asked.
"How about we start with stuff about u and then I will tell u a bit about myself," responded James.
"Okay, as u already somehow know, my name is Emily. My birthday is in August and I am 17 years old. I have lived here for two years and I go to Battlefield High School. I have a sister named, Isabelle who is 14 years old. I am in the Marching Band at school and I play flute in concert band and piccolo in the marching band. I like Harry Potter and animals and music. So yeah, that's basically me."
"I can't tell u my real name yet, so for now u are calling me James. I am 19 years old and my birthday is in September. I like singing and I am actually pretty good at it. I'm not going to tell u anything else right now out of fear that u might guess who I am."
"Why can't I know who u are?"
"You wouldn't understand if I told u why right now."
" u are so full of mysteries. u seem to mean well so I will try to get to know u to, if you'll let me. Right now u aren't saying much."
"Alright. Do u want to go on a walk around the neighborhood?"
"Sure! I love walking in the dark!"
But then I heard out of the window above us, "Emily!! Don't go anywhere alone with him!" And James took off at a full sprint down the road.
"Alicia! Look what you've done!" I screamed. I sat down on the steps frustrated and noticed a piece of paper on the concrete beside me. I quickly unfolded it and read it.
If u are reading this, somehow our meeting was interrupted of u chose not to come meet me. Which ever one it was I want u to come to Howl-O-Scream at Busch Gardens Williamsburg this Saturday night at 6:00pm. Meet me in front of Griffon. Here is enough money to pay for a ticket in case u don't have a season pass already. I hope to see u there.
