Scott's P.O.V.

Maybe I've been overreacting, maybe I haven't, but it's not everyday that your pretty much dead brother wakes up and escapes from the hospital. My parents called me about an hour ago to tell me that they're staying in a hotel until tomorrow and then they're going to go out and look for Daniel. I mean where could he possibly have gone after waking up from a coma? It's really starting to stress me out.

Damn Daniel.

I've been sitting around in his room for over two hours doing nothing. I used to always come in here after visiting him in the hospital because it made me feel closed with him. I'd usually stay in here for the rest of the night and sleep in his bed but I don't want to be a dick and just leave Abby out there in my house with nothing to do. I just felt like I was having an anxiety attack earlier and I didn't want her to see me like that so as soon as we got in the house I bolted.

Anyhow, now that I've collected myself, I walk out of Daniel's room and slowly make my way down the stairs.

"Abby!" I call out as I walk around the seemingly deserted house. I walk into the dining room and see Tom, our butler.

"Have you seen Abby?" I ask walking up to him and he stops sweeping for a moment and smiles when he sees me.

"She left about an hour ago, " he says before he continues to sweep around the room.

"Wait, " I say following after him while he continues to sweep. "What do you mean she left? Who did she leave with?"

"One of the maids saw her get in a car and leave, " he says shrugging at me. "I'm assuming that she called one of her friends to come and get her since you locked yourself in your room."

"Why didn't you come and get me? I could've drove her home myself!"

"Your mother specifically told us n

I don't know what compelled me to try to have an intelligent conversation with him while he's in this state. Liam and I have never been close before, especially not after the first time we met.

"W-what aren't you t-telling us?" I ask and he huffs before sitting up straight in his seat and glaring at me.

"W-what make you so s-sure I'm k-keeping something f-from you?"

I look at him unamused by his attempt to imitate my stutter. It doesn't bother me as much when people do it anymore, especially considering its Liam and his opinion is as small as he probably is.

If you know what I mean.

We sit there for what feels like forever staring at each other and I see his eyes soften a little bit. I honesty don't think he's a terrible person, even if he keeps trying to make me think that he is. There's some reason that he's been running to alcohol and whatnot lately and I'm going to find out whether he liked it or not.

Liam and I's staring match is interrupted when we hear the bell of the small ice cream shop ringing. Both of us turn towards the door wondering who just entered the room. Both our mouths drop open and Liam is the first to speak.
