"I'm Ava," she says, wrapping her arms around me in a hug. I'm taken aback for a second, but then I reluctantly return the hug. "I can't believe I'm finally meeting you!" she squeals. "Ever since I found out I have sisters, I've been super excited to see you and Ansley!" I nod, not knowing what to say. "I just found out about this whole thing not too long ago," I reply. "Oh, really?" Ava asks. "I've known for a couple months, but I was too shy and had to work up some nerve to find you- my family." My mom interrupts our conversation. "We can go see Ansley now," she tells us. I rush into her room, and immediately burst into tears when I see her in the hospital bed. She looks frail and breakable. Ansley smiles wanly. "Don't cry Ally," she says and hugs me. "Are you okay?" I manage to say through the flood of tears. "I'm fine, silly," she responds. "I was so worried..." I trail off. Too soon, visiting hours are over and we have to go. "I'll call you," I promise before leaving. "Do you want to stay here?" my mom asks me. "You can stay overnight and go back tomorrow or something if you want." I never thought I'd want to go to the camp, but right now I do. "Nah, can you drive me back to camp?" I say hopefully. I need to find out if Niall came back or not. My dad nods. "I can drive you now if you want." I smile gratefully. "Thanks, dad. Please." Ava looks up from her phone. "Can I come along?" she adds, smiling. "Sure," my dad agrees amiably. Five minutes later in the car, Ava says, "I didn't know I would look so much like you guys." I'm silent for a moment. "Me neither," I say finally and she laughs a little even though it wasn't a joke. I know it's stupid, but I feel a little jealous. Ava just came into my life and is automatically accepted in the family, and she and Ansley seemed to get along pretty well. I shake off the feeling and smile when Camp Lincoln comes into view. What if Niall is here waiting for me? With that thought in mind, I hop out of the car, thanking my dad and saying goodbye to Ava. I run to my cabin, and throw the door open. Emma's there, and so is Lacey. "Did you....?" I ask, not needing to finish the question for them to understand what I mean. Emma shakes her head. "No. Not yet, anyway." She tries to sound optimistic, but I think everyone is losing hope. Where could he be? "We found...we found blood spots in the woods," Lacey pipes up. "We can't be certain it's his blood though, not unless we had the police test it." I let out a little yelp and run out the door. For some reason, I feel drawn to the lake, so I sit on the dock and let my feet dangle into the water. The water's cold, but I don't even feel it I'm so absorbed in my thoughts. I hear footsteps walking toward me, and Niall sits beside me. I look at him, gasping. "Where have you been?" I exclaim. "We've been so worried about you!" He shrugs. "I had to go away for a little bit. My family needed me." I nod. "But why didn't you tell anyone where you were going?" Niall fades away. "Niall!" I yell, frantically looking around. He seemingly vanished into midair. "Ally, wake up," I hear Aubree saying. I sit up, my neck sore. "You fell asleep on the dock," Aubree explains. "I heard you saying Niall. Were you dreaming?" I nod, rubbing my neck. "He said he was at home; he said his family needed him. I don't know why." Aubree helps me up. "It was just a dream," she says soothingly. But for some reason, it feels like more than that. That night, I have more dreams about Niall, and in each one, he drops hints about where he could be. His blond hair and blue eyes fill my sleep and haunt me as I lay awake staring at the ceiling. Aubree might say they're just dreams, but I don't think they are. Somehow, somewhere, Niall is communicating to me. He's relying on me to find him. And I will find him. I have to.
