SCARLET

Another message came right away. I'll see you soon.

Raoul.

I immediately turned off my phone with my shaking fingers. My heart raced a mile a minute. It couldn't be him. It was too long ago. He would never come here. He already left.

"Hey, what's wrong?" Katherine elbowed me on the side.

"Huh?" I glanced at her. "Nothing."

"Nothing?" Katherine grabbed my hand. "Your hands are shaking. What's wrong?"

"I said I'm fine, Katherine!" I yelled.

"Scarlet, " she said softly. "Calm down."

"Miss Carter, is there a problem?" Our professor's voice echoed through the whole room. Dozens of eyes shifted to me. Damn. I forgot I was still in the classroom.

"Nothing. I'm sorry, Mr. Donald. I'm sorry."

The professor cleared his throat. "Eyes back at the screen. All of you." He ordered to the class.

"We will talk later, " Katherine said she set her eyes back on her laptop's screen.

I nodded.

After the class, we came out of the classroom heading to the next lesson. Katherine was watching me as if she's waiting for me to speak. But I remained quiet. I still couldn't take the message I received out of my mind. It could be Raoul but it could be someone who wanted to play with us.

Nate suddenly appeared behind us. He grabbed Katherine's arm and mine. "Come with me." He whispered while scanning the place suspiciously. As if someone was watching us.

"But we still have a class, " Katherine told him. "What is going on?"

"Shh!" Nate hissed. "Just come with me. "This won't take long."

Katherine stared at me. She gave me the same look. I nodded.

We walk discreetly in the opposite direction. Nate took us to the library. We followed him until he stopped into one of the bookshelves.

"Pick one too." He took one book from the shelf, and he pretended that he was reading. We did as he said.

"Listen, " he whispered. "I got a message."

"What is this all about?" Katherine asked. "You two are acting weird."

"He's here." Nate swallowed hard. Our eyes locked.

"Who's here?" Katherine frowned.

"Raoul, " I told them in a whisper. "I got one too."

Nate's shoulders fell. "He's coming to our graduation."

"Is that what he told you?" I asked.

Katherine interrupted. "Wait, wait! Guys, am I thinking the same person here? The one who—"

"Yes, Katherine." I finished her sentence. I don't want to hear her say anything about who he was to me. "Then, my suspicion is correct. It was him. He tex

put himself in danger." '

"You're not going to tell him about that text message. It is safer that way. What we have to do now is make sure that we don't cross paths with Raoul. I already asked Nate to stay with us until our graduation. You don't go alone outside. Do you understand?"

"But, Luke…"

"If you want to meet your boyfriend, just ask him to come here."

I nodded. "Okay."

"Now, cheer up and let's have dinner. You didn't eat lunch. I will wake Nate up."

I nodded and forced a smile. "Thank you."

"You're welcome." Katherine squeezed my hand before she jumped out of the bed. Katherine went to the next room. I heard her slapped Nate.

"Wake up! Lazy head."

"Aww! What?" Nate complained lazily.

"Get up!" I heard him slap him again. "Let's make dinner."

"Alright! Alright! Stop doing that. It hurts."

"I didn't even—aww!"

I heard Nate laughed. Katherine giggled. I imagined him pulling Katherine back on the bed to squeeze her in a tight hug, just like she always does. I chuckled. Maybe it was really better this way. I still have friends, and they're not going to leave me. We maybe had problems and secrets, but they are the only reason why I survived. They helped me millions of times, and they are willing to do it again. I think that was more than enough to listen to them now.

I checked my phone if I received any message, but there's still nothing in my inbox, so I messaged him instead.

Are you busy? – Scar.

A reply came a minute later.

I'm sorry, love. Something came up. I have to leave for London right away. It's urgent. I'll see you in your graduation. I love you - Luke
