Abby's P.O.V

So, last night was definitely...interesting.

It's been the only thing that I can focus on lately considering I've been so tired. These nightmares have really been affecting the amount of sleep I get every night.

Oh, and did I say that Scott kissed me?

Well he did, and let's just say that that's the other reason I didn't get much sleep last night.

I've been thinking about it alot lately. I'm talking about that day at the ice cream shop, not the kiss. Although I guess I've been thinking about that alot too. Anyhow I know that there was no way that the two men who I saw walk into that ice cream shop were not Parker and Mr. O'Neil: there's no way at all, the similarities were too close. But why would Ryan lie? Why am I even contemplating this? I saw the security footage, there's no way someone could have tinkered with the footage for the short minute that I was in the bathroom with Scott.

Is there?

Maybe everyone is right, I need to see someone about this.

I scream and turn around when I feel a hand tap my shoulder. I look up and breath out a sigh of relief when I see that's it's just Oakland. I had just gotten out of my last class about an hour ago and I decided to get some coffee from the cafe because I'm tired of hanging around my friends because they're always analyzing me. I called Scott and he told me that he'd meet me here after his last class.

"Sorry I didn't mean to scare you, " Oakland says quickly taking a seat in the seat across from me. "I just saw you here and I figured that I would come and say hi."

"H-hi."

"Hi, " he laughs but there's something different about him today. He looks...tired? His eyes are red, he looks like he hasn't slepy in days, and his shoulders are slumped. Very different from the usual confident Oakland that I'm used to.

"Everything alright?" I ask staring at him.

"Oh yeah, " he says a little too quickly. "I'm just a little bit tired. Been having nightmares a lot lately."

"N-nightmares?" My ears perk up and I look at him intentely. Is he going through the same thing as me? "What k-kind of nightmares?"

"Usually it's the same one every night, " he frowns. "But I don't really want to talk about that."

"W-what do you w-want to t-talk about?"

"Us."

"Us?"

"Abby I like you."

"I l-like you too Oakland."

"So you'll go out with me?"

My eyes nearly fall out of my head when I hear him say that. He meant that he likes me like that?

"I h-have a b-boyfriend, " I say and push my chair back a little bit more to create more space between us but he just reaches acro

t asks looking at him suspiciously.

"What does it matter?"

"I think I'm allowed to wonder what my brother's intentions are after all the bad decisions you've made in your life."

"Well couldn't I say the same for you baby brother?" Falon chuckles raising an eyebrow at Scott. "I mean shouldn't I be asking why you care so much? You don't usually care this much and you barely even know Abby."

"I barely know my girlfriend?" Scott stares at him as if he's grown a second head. "You're one to talk! You met your 'fiance' last week!" I look over at Anna as soon as he says that and I swear her jaw hits the floow as soon as he says that. I guess I don't have to worry about telling her about Scott and I anymore. "Secondly I don't have to listen to this anymore so get out and-"

There's suddenly a knock on the door and Scott looks like he doesn't know whether or not he wants to answer it. Finally he stops glaring at Falon long enough to go over and greet whoever is at the door. Anna moves to sit back on Falon's lap. Well...she doesn't look pregnant. Liam is sitting on the floor with his arms crossed like a small child and his eyes flicked to mine for a second but then he's glaring intentely at something across the room. Scott? No, as far as I know they aren't mad at each other about anything. Victor and Becca are sitting a couple feet away from him obsessing over some book that they just finished, you almost wouldn't even be able to tell whether or not they were listening to the conversation we just had at all.

Scott walks back into the room with four people following him. We all go silent as soon as we see them. Why did Scott just walk into the room with my parents, a police officer, and Mr. O'Neil?
