Something had set alarms off in my mind, telling me something
wasn't right but I dismissed it. A couple of hours had passed
since I arrived at Liam's, I guess I didn't realize how
long I laid on the bed thinking. It didn't seem as long as it

of turning the tv on to a station crossed my mind, but that would
require reaching to grab the tv remote and then pressing the

AUTHOR'S NOTE: Hello! I
put a hint for something that is going to happen in The
Lie in this chapter. Anyone think they caught it?? Sorry

Thank you so much for reading! Love you
