Abby's P.O.V

I'm starting to get a little bit pissed off.

I've been sitting in the same bed for nearly three days. There's always at least one other person siting in here with me and giving me medicine to take at the same time everyday. But no one will tell me why the hell I've just been laying around in Scott's guest room. Scott won't even tell me, I don't see him much during the day cause he must still go to his classes. He's always back at night time though, driving back and forth from campus all the time must be exhausting.

My Mom is the one sitting in here with me right now. I've asked her several times already when I'll be able to get up or why I'm even being held in here at all, but she gives me the same sad expression that everyone else does before shaking her head at me.

"J-just tell me w-what t-the hell is wrong w-with me!" I yell at her and she jumps a little bit in her seat, probably surprised that I've finally resulted to screaming at her.

"I'm so sorry, " she says shaking her head and I notice tears starting to stream down her cheeks. This happened the last time I asked her what was going on, it seems that every time I ask her she always breaks down and cries.

"C-can you tell me w-what you're s-sorry about?"

"Not today honey, " she says and I huff angrily. I just can't believe that they've basically imprisoned me in this room and they don't even have the decency to tell me why.

Both of our heads snap towards the door when we hear a gentle knock on it.

My boyfriend's head pops through the door and he grins at me but the smile doesn't completely reach his eyes.

"You can step out now if you need to, " Scott says looking over at my mother. "I can stay in here now, it's almost six anyways."

My mother doesn't say anything to me or Scott as she stands up and leaves the room. As soon as she leaves Scott shuts the door and walks over to stand next to the bed. He looks down at me but doesn't say anything for a while. I can tell that he's tired because his eyes are

ice. "How have you been?"

"B-besides not knowing w-why I've b-been trapped in t-this room?" I ask tapping my chin with my finger. "Just peachy."

"What's you mean you're trapped in here?"

"I m-mean they w-won't let me out, " I whine. "And t-they won't tell me w-why. I feel like I-I'm suffocating in h-here."

"Well, " Oakland looks like he's in deep thought. "What if I could get you out of here?"

"H-how?" I ask curiously. I haven't been outside in what feels like forever.

"Tonight, " he says. "I could sneak you out if you'd be up for a night of just hanging out with me."

Last time Oakland and I talked it ended on a bad note. And I really desperate enough to to get out of this room that I'd sneak out with him? I mean I've hung out with Oakland before and nothing's happened except for the last time. Maybe things can go back to normal with him and I.

"Fine, " I say nodding my head and he immediately grins at me and I can't help but smile back at him. He stands up and the door to the room opens revealing Scott as he walks back into the rooms. Oakland looks at him before looking back down at me and kissing the back of my hand before walking towards the door.

Scott glares at him the whole way out, but that doesn't prevent Oakland from winking at me before walking out of the room.

What have I gotten myself into?
