My name is Sophie Brown, I have a secret. It is only shown behind hidden and locked doors. Can you find it?


5. My secret... (Part One)

*Sophie's POV*

We talked for what seemed like forever, and then the bell rang. That was really an hour already. We stood up and went to throw our trash away. We had the same class next and we kept talking all the way there. He was such a nice guy, I am so lucky to have met him. After the next two hours I finally got to go home. I was about to leave through the front door of the school, when Louis came up to me.

“Hey Soph.”

“Hey Lou.”

“Need a ride?” He asks me walking backwards talking to me like he always does.

“No, I have one, but thank you.”

“Oh do you have a friend that comes pick you up or something?” He asks, I was confused on why he wants to know.

“Um, No, I uhh, I drive.” I said pointing to my black escalade.

“Oh.” He plainly said.

“Yeah.” I started to open my door and I rolled down the window and shut the door. “Maybe we could walk home together sometime.” I said smiling at him through the big window gap.

“Yeah, maybe.” He said smiling.

“Well ok then, goodbye.” I said smiling and waving.

I started to slowly drive with all of the traffic in my way. I got down to the turn and looked to my left then to my right and as soon as I looked back to my left, I spotted him. Louis was walking home? I thought he had a ride? I drove up beside him and yelled through my wide open window.

“Hey there, need a ride?” I ask.

“Oh, no thank you, I don’t want to bother you.”

“No it's fine Lou, c'mon.” I said gesturing for him to get in.

He got in and we drove off.

“I thought you had a ride?” I ask as we turn onto his street.

“I never said I had a ride, I just asked you if you needed one.” He stated.

It stayed quiet after that and then I pulled into his driveway.

“Here we are.” I said.

“Yep, here we are.”

I really liked him and I had to tell him how I felt.

“Thanks for the ride he said opening his door.”

“You're welcome.”

He was about to jump out using his hand on the seat to help push himself out when I couldn't take it anymore. I put my hand on the hand that he had on the seat.


“Yeah, Soph?” He asks looking back at me.

I didn't know what to say so I just leaned in and I think he followed what I was getting at because he started to lean too. That’s when our lips were just about to touch and his phone started ringing. I jumped back and he apologized.

“It's ok.” I say disappointedly.

I was really hoping for that kiss. We said our goodbyes then I left. I got home and parked. Sat there for a moment and hit my head on the steering wheel a couple of times and got out of the car. I grabbed my things and walked into my new house. Once I got into my room I grabbed my laptop, my phone and purse. I made sure nobody was watching or fallowing and then I went to my closet. I unlocked the lock I put on my closet then pushed half of my clothes aside. I walked back behind them and scanned my hand on the black scanner attached to the wall, it beeped and then two doors opened to show off a huge room, with speakers, microphones, every instrument you can think of, games having to do with music and a small stage. I sat down at one of the couches I had in there and opened up my laptop, and then I remembered. I can't let out my secret, without shutting every door I just opened. I walked over and locked the first door which was my closet door and then scanned again, then two glass doors closed over everything for sound cover. I walked over to the couch again and then opened it up, went to Skype and sent Lucy a request. She immediately answered it and I said hi, I told her everything that happened today and she literally screamed. I told her I wanted to talk about my secret. '

“Why do I keep doing this, it's cool and all, you know this room and stuff, but why do I keep hiding it?” I asked her.

“I don't know, but if you want to tell people then do it.”
