and Easton and I were just pulling out of the drive way were the
I convinced his friends that we had "things" to do, so
I could see Rusty more.
On the way to my house to get my bags, my self phone got a call
from an unknown number.
"Hello?" I asked into the speaker.
Easton gave me a wierd look, and I shrugged my shoulders.
"Hello, Lana Martial?" the voice on the other end of
the line asked.
"Yes, this is she."
"I'm sorry to inform you, but your parents got into a
car accident, and neither of them made it. Their bodies are at

"Thank you. I'm very sorry." The police responded
opening the door for us to leave.
Easton got me in the car, and drove me to Rusty's house.
"What are we doing here?" I asked, trying to fight back
"You need more than just me at this point." he said,
holding my hand.
He got out of the car, and picked me up wedding style and carried
me into the apartment building.
