22. Drunken Truth Part 2
“I dropped my shoe.” I laughed as I fumbled into Jack’s dorm.
“No, you knocked over Hiccup’s lamp.” Jack sighed as he scooped me up into his arms and carried me into his bedroom. Just as he was setting me down, I felt and odd feeling in my stomach, as if I should get away.
“No.” I groaned as I tried to get away from him.
“Elsa, you need to stay here.”
“No I don’t. I don’t want to be here.” I started to cry. Suddenly images of the guys flashed in my eyes and replaced Jack.
“I know it’s not the best place, but it’s better than the party.” Fear began to come to me as those exact words repeated in my head.
“No! That’s what they said last time.” I began to sob. Jack didn’t come toward me, but he bent down to show me his confused expression.
“Who said that last time?” he asked trying to move my hands from my face.
“They did.” I choked.
“Who are they?” he asked once more with a little fear in his voice.
“The guys from that night.” I sobbed. I could feel the tension coming off of Jack as he waited from an explanation.
“Can I have a glass of water?” I asked as I tried to calm myself down. Jack walked out of his room and hurried back with my request. He helped me drink it since I was still shaking. When I finished, I set the glass down and Jack looked me in the eye.
“What happened to you Elsa?” he asked me with all seriousness. He looked me in the eyes so deep that I could feel his trust and mine entwine together.
“Okay.” I sighed. “I’ll tell you, but you’re not going to like it.”
