*dinner that night*
"Seriously?!" I yelled. Unhappy with what I've just heard.
"Sweetheart we're sorry but it's for your fathers business and we can't just blow it off!" My mom replied.
"Do both of you have to go?! At least one of you could stay!" I played with my food on my plate. Both my parents were leaving for a business trip and I wasn't going with them.
"I'm sorry honey, we will be back in no time!" My dad said, trying to calm me down.
"I just got back like a month ago! And now you are leaving..." I said quietly. How could they do this?! I needed them!
"We're so sorry darling. We know you just got back and we are going to miss you so much but it's only for a couple of weeks. Nothing's going to happen we promise!" My mom reassured.
"How do you know?! I was just kidnapped by five spies five months ago!" I sat back in my chair. "Hhhh, look I know it's for Dads job, but can't you wait a while?"
"Sweetheart, it's alright. It's only for two weeks. We'll be back before you know it!" My dad said smiling.
"You have to stay in contact!" I said. "I need to know that you guys are safe!"
"We'll call as much as possible. We promise."
*later on that night*
I sprung up in bed. "Diana!" I yelled. "It's Diana! She's still alive!" I got out my phone and looked up her number. I pressed call then waited.
'Ana! It's me Kai!'
'Kai? It's 3:00 in the morning..what's wrong?' Her voice was hesitant.
'I need to talk to you, but not right now. Can we meet up tomorrow?' I asked.
'Yeah, is everything alright?'
'It will be. Meet me in the park tomorrow morning at 8:30. Okay?' I said.
'Goodnight.' I replied, but I couldn't go to sleep. I was thinking to much about Liam and Diana. She said that her boyfriend tried to get rid of her, well Liam had to 'get rid of' his girlfriend! And she said that she hasn't had the best luck. And her name is DIANA! It has to be her, it has to be.
The next morning I kissed my parents goodbye and then they left for the business trip. As soon as they were gone I ran up to my bathroom and took a quick shower. I rinsed my hair then wrapped the towel around me. I put a cute outfit on then brushed my teeth. Next, I grabbed my bag and headed out the door.
I walked through my neighborhood and thought of all the things I've done in the past. Like the time I raced my friend Jane up that hill, and how we had a rolling race down. I won haha. I looked over and saw the old house at the end of my street. The one that use to scare me, and bring nightmares to my sleep. I walked on further and finally made t to the park entryway. I walked in the gates and saw Diana sitting at a picnic table by herself. I walked over to her and sat down across from her. "Hey." I said smiling.
"Hi." She smiled back. "So what's wrong? What did you need to talk about with me?"
"Okay, this is going to sound crazy alright?" I said raising my eyebrows.
"Okay, uhm...have you ever been. I guess I'm trying to say, has anyone one ever....uhm.." I couldn't get it out. She would think I was a loon if I asked the wrong way.
"Have I ever what?"
"Hhhh, have you ever uhm, seen someone get...shot?" Her face hardened and she looked down.
"What?" She asked in a monotone voice.
"Have you ever seen someone get shot?" I repeated.
"Uhm, sadly I have. Why are you asking?" She was staring at the table top.
"I was thinking last night, and...well I have another question." I said, but she only nodded. "Have you ever been kidnapped?"
"I don't like where this is going..." She said trying to fight back her emotions. "This is personal stuff that you're asking!" Her voice suddenly rose.
"I'm sorry it's just, I was kidnapped too.." I said trying to calm her down.
"Well, then you know it's hard talking about these things! I'm sorry but, I have to go!" She stood up.
"NO, no! Wait, please wait!" I stood up and ran around to her. "Please Diana....please?" She stopped and looked down at me.
"How dare you! This is my personal life we are talking about!" She said a little to loud.
"Yes I know, but I've told you mine!" I said trying to prove a point.
"But I didn't pry!" She said turning and walking away. "Just leave me alone!"
"Diana please! Please I think I can help you!" I yelled but she kept walking. I had to think of something quick. "Uh, Diana! I know! I know about Liam!" She stopped. Just froze in her tracks.
"Wha..." She slowly turned her head to look at me. "What did you say?"
"I know Diana...I know what's happened to you. I found your letter." Her face softened.
"My letter? But how did you-"
"I'm a victim too." I said. "I saw Harry shoot a man in an alley. After that he captured me and brought me home with him. I know what you're going through Ana. The same thing happened to me."
Her eyes were wide but not with terror, or defeat, but with anguish and despair. "He tried to-"
"I know." I interrupted her. "He told me. But there's something you should know."
"What's that?" She asked in a soft tone.
"He loves you. I've never seen so much love in someone's eyes before Diana. When I found your letter and handed it to him, he bawled like a baby. All of them shed tears, but Liam cried. He misses you and blames himself or what happened!"
"My-my Li misses me?"
"More than anything." I replied. A tear slid down her cheek.
"Are you still in contact with them?" She asked me.
"Uhm. No but I know where they live. I could take you there!" I said smiling.
"No! No, he wouldn't want to see me. Not after I ran away." She looked down upset.
"What?! Diana he dreams about you and never stops thinking about you! He cried for days when he read the letter. He misses you so much you have to see him!"
"Kai, I don't think that's a good idea."
"I'll be right there with you." I said smiling.
"What if he doesn't love me anymore?" Her head sunk down.
"He does. I swear it!"
"Well, alright. If you know so-"
"-then let's go get our boys!" She smiled hesitantly.
"Wait! Uhm, your boy.." I corrected her. I knew Harry wouldn't want to see me, ever again.
"Kai, if Liam can love me after I betrayed him and ran away, Harry can love you, trust me. I'm scared too, but we can do this together." With that said we headed to our homes and packed. I wasn't going to tell my parents just yet, they might not take t to well. I met back up with Diana and we decided to take her car. However, I would help pay for gas. I couldn't believe what I was about to do. My heart was racing and I felt as if I could throw up any minute now. But I had to to this for her. I had to get Liam and Diana back together.
