Dark Secrets

My name's Hope and I'm dead... Well, I'm supposed to be. I woke up buried and in a cemetery and to make matters worse it looks like I have a personal stalker as well who may be my only chance at answers. Let's just hope he doesn't kill me while we're at it.

12. Chapter 12

Brittani's eyes widened in confusion. "Chase? What are you doing here?" He didn't say anything, just looked at me. "Chase! Hello? Mister Chase?" He still didn't respond. 

"I see you sent for backup, Brittani." I growled, staring right back at Chase. 

"No, I never sent for-" She stopped and straightened herself. "You're here for her?" She asked Chase, glowering at him, but he didn't even flinch. 

"Why would he be here for me? We met once." I countered her, not daring to believe it. 

Chase still didn't speak. 

"Chase!" She screamed. "Why the hell do you want her?" 

I looked away from Chase and down at the zip-ties. If only I was strong enough to break them. 

I focused my strength once more and strained against the zip-ties. They didn't budge. Once more. Same result. 

Then a thud echoed through the room and I looked up finally, right at Chase's face, inches from mine. "You need to get out of here." He said. 

"What did you do to Brittani?" I asked in a small voice. 

"Nothing." He cut my one arm free. Then the next. 

"Then why isn't she stopping you?" 

"No reason." 

"Stop being blunt and answer me!" 

He crouched down to cut my ankles free without saying anything and I realized why she wasn't doing anything. She was the thud I'd heard. "Did you kill her?" 

"No. I would never kill someone." 

"Really? An Ajokoira would never kill someone?" 

"A human." He stood. I flexed my wrists and ankles then stood. "This is a small stone cottage in the middle of a forest. Stick to the tree tops and she'll never find you." 

"What about you?" 

"She won't hurt me. We have... History," he looked back at her then back at me. 

"That's why you look familiar. You were the boyfriend she paraded around. Especially when she bullied me..." I looked down at my shoes. 

"I never payed attention to those things. But, those things are what made me dump her in the first place." 

"And she wants you back?" I studied his face. 

"Stick to the tree tops. Keep going east and you'll cross into town soon." 

"Right... Thanks for the help, by the way." 

"No problem." And I left. 

After a thirty second sprint, I jumped and grabbed a branch, swinging myself up into the tree and climbing higher, sticking to the tree tops just as Chase said.

E: Well, there you go. A little Hope/Chase bonding time. And what do you think of Brittani? Is she a bitch?
