Abby's P.O.V

I wake up the next day to the bed I'm laying on shaking violently. I slowly open my eyes and blink a couple of times as my eyes adjust to the bright light in the room. I sit up quickly and look over to see Liam laying on his side next to me and trembling viciously. We must have fallen asleep during the movie yesterday.

I tilt my head in confusion at the sight before me. Maybe he's having some type of bad dream? But even if he were I don't think he should be trembling this much. I quickly stand up out of the bed and make my way over to Liam's side of the bed.

When I reach his side of the bed I immediately notice that he's holding both sides of his head as if he's trying to block out some type of sound and his eyes are sealed shut. There are small whimpers coming from his mouth, maybe it is just a bad dream.

"L-Liam?" I cautiously reach over and gently shake him shoulder. His eyes unexpectedly open almost immediately. I retract my hand from him but even after he opens his eyes he still continues to shake violently. "W-what's happening?"

"This h-has been happening a lot lately, " he says stuttering slightly which surprises me. He shuts his eyes again for a moment and I take that as my queue to go find someone to help. But as I'm stepping away his hand locks on my wrists and he tugs me so that I'm facing him again. He glances up at me and shakes his head.

"I h-have to g-go get help, " I say trying to leave the room but he shakes his head at me again with pleading eyes as he keeps a gentle but firm grip on my wrist.

"Liam w-what's going on?" I ask staring down at him.

"W-well remember how I t-told you I was trying to quit drinking and smoking?" He asks with a small sad smile on his face. I notice a bead of sweat begin to drop down his forehead as he lets go of my wrist. "Well t-this is one of the symptoms."

I nod as I realize what he's telling me. I contemplate what my next move should be. I could stay in here like he wants me to and try to help him. But the problem that lies there is the fact that I don't know how to help him at all and from the way that he's sweating and trembling, it looks like he n

curiosity that killed that cat. I'm pretty damn sure that it was clumsiness that killed that little fucker."

"C-can you make it f-from here?" I ask him chuckling a little bit. He sure is Scott's brother. He nods with a smug look on his face and I walk out of the room, leaving the door open for him.

I walk into the room that Liam and I had been in the night before to see Scott kneeling next to his best friend muttering things to him as he dials a number into his phone. I'm assuming that he's going to call someone to get Liam some preofessional help, hopefully he knows not to call Liam's parents if they really are that bad of people. I walk over towards them and stand next to where Scott is kneeling.

"-Need a Doctor, " I hear Scott say into the phone. I look down at Liam as Scott talks and see that he isn't trembling as bad as he was before but he's still shaking enough for it to be a problem. He looks back up at me and doesn't say anything but he just stares at me. "No, I need one right now...YOU DON'T KNOW WHO THE FUCK I AM, I COULD RUIN YOU!...Okay thank you."

I look down at Scott with raised eyebrows at the conversation he just had. I kneel down on the floor next him and we both just sit with Liam. We don't say anything, we just sit there. I don't say anything when Scott slips his hand into mine and softly squeezes. And Scott doesn't say anything when I don't take my hand away from his.

We just let it be.
