Abby's P.O.V

As soon as I hear him say that he wants to help pay for the surgery I slide off of his lap and quickly stand up. I run a hand through my hair and look down at him.

"Is t-that all t-this is?" I say fuming. I don't know why it pisses me off that he's offering to pay for my surgery, but something just doesn't feel right about him trying to offer me money out of the blue. "I'm j-just some k-kind of charity case to you?"

Scott looks up at me shocked and tilts his head. I try to ignore how cute he looks right now and shift awkwardly as he stares at me. There's a brief moment of silence as we just stare at each other.

"Stop thinking about yourself as a charity case, " he says standing up and looking straight into my eyes. "Just think about it. I just want to help."

I look at him confused, wondering when the asshole that I met back in high school turned into this guy sitting in front of me. We stare at each other for a few more seconds before Scott grins at me and walks over towards the tree house door. I raise my eyebrow at him and he laughs before jumping out of the house. Like literally, he doesn't climb down, he jumps out.

I gasp and quickly run over to the door and look down prepared to see Scott's body sprawled out on the ground. But instead he's standing there staring up at me as if he didn't just jump out of a two story window.

"Just a second!" Liam shouts as if this is his room. "I'm not decent yet!"

Becca walks over to the door and opens it. Anna dashes into the room with Abby's douchebag of an ex-boyfriend trailing behind her. Anna is out of breath and nearly collapses but Parker places his hands on her shoulders to steady her.

"I need to borrow one of your cars, " she says breathing heavily.

"Why?" Liam asks pulling a shirt over his head.

"Abby collapsed, " she says shivering. "They wouldn't let me ride in the ambulance with her. She's on her way to the hospital."
