My mom comes into my room, waking me up.
I'm laying on the floor, with my hands close to my ears, and
my knees so close to my chest. "Hun, the police just left,
they gave you a number to call if you ever need someone, or
something." She places the small card on my bed, and you
have a visitor.I get up, and pat my hair down, before going
downstairs. Austin stands in my doorway, with a girl facing
backwards. I raise an eyebrow, but before I can say anything, she
Her long wavy hair, reaches just
below her chest, and it has a dark brown glow."Riley!"
Her now familiar voice speaks, with a smile stretching across her
"Lilly?!" I smile. "I thought you weren't
going to be here until Saturday!" We hug for a moment, until
she lets go to explain that Austin heard about what happened, and
picked her up. I'm not sure whether or not I should be

"I'll be there," Lilly stands up, and adjusts her
hair. "I'll just keep reminding you what you always
remind me, to just breathe." She laughs a little.
