Last night a purposely didn't set my alarm, or at least that's what I tell myself, so I just decided not to go to school today. Now it's eleven o'clock and I'm laying in my bed, contemplating life. That is, until I heard rustling from outside. What could it-

What the fuck?

I ran to the window and smashed my head into something equally as hard. I closed my eyes in pain and rubbing my head. I heard a cry as I opened my eyes and saw Trey's hooded figure flailing around. I quickly grabbed one of his arms and tugged him towards me, causing him to tumble into the room. He knocked me over in the process and blew the wind out of me as he crushed me between him in the floor. He immediately lifted himself off of me and I choked a little as I took a deep breath.

"Oh my god, Amy I'm so sor-" he started, not getting off of me.

"It's g-good." I fought to catch a breath as he rolled off me. He got up and held out his hand to me. I took it and stood up. We stood there for a while. He just stared at me, and I stared at his lips because they were the only things I could see. I really wanted to see under his hood, even if we hardly spoke, I felt some sort of weird connection that I just couldn't explain. I raised my hands to his face and looked to him for confirmation. He was hesitant, but he nodded. Slowly, I grabbed onto his hood and began pulling it back.

Slowly, the shadow left his face and revealed what was underneath. Finally, his hood was all the way off and I fully admired him. "Trey..."

I took it all in.

First his chin, it was pointy, obviously. Next, were his cheeks, they looked hollow because his cheekbones jutted out. He had two scars forming an 'X' over his left cheekbone. I skipped over his eyes went straight to his eyebrows. They were thick and brown, the left one has some faint, long scars running underneath of it. He also had two

he balls to do it himself. It started with someone following her and taking pictures of her. Then leaving notes, and a nanny cam. When you told me that was happening to you, I tried to push you away even further.

"After we robbed the bank, he let her go and we moved away to another city. Then, Troy made a friend. It was a football player, he played on the team. They were best friends and they got along so well. That was when he made us infiltrate an underground drug ring and buy him some top notch drugs. This time when we moved, Troy didn't attend school because he didn't want anything to happen.

"We moved here a year or two ago and we've been fine until a few weeks ago. When you told me that you saw my father, I lost it, I didn't know what to do. Now I know, that the only way to protect you at this point is to be with you. If you'll still have me, I'd like to ask you out on a date. For real this time." He finished, looking slightly out of breath and vulnerable.

I looked into his eyes and saw promise, promise that he wouldn't leave again. "Trey, you know I can't." I said sadly, thinking back to Ash. I wasn't sad for being with him, only sad that Trey made his move too late.

Holy shit, you did it? Like, actually did it?
