13. California

                                                                          I wake up in Brandon's arms...

  We're in a car, Jeep to be exact. Willow's driving and Brandon's holding me in the back seat. "Wheres Eric?" I whisper, drowsy. "He did something stupid and we wouldn't let him come." Willow answers. "Where are we going?" I asked. "California." I begin to laugh. "Sure." Brandon holds me a little tight. "It's true." The car keeps going but suddenly Willow hits the brake. "Oh crap!" I try to sit up but I couldn't. Brandon won't let me. "Stay down." He hissed. "Why, Eric? Why!" I could hear the sirens. Oh god help us.

  The police are blocking our path. I won't let Echo sit up. If she does, they'll see her. But that won't help, sadly. A man with a mustache knocked on Willow's window. It's all over. I let Echo go. "She's here." The man called. The next minute flashed by. And then Willow and I were in hand cuffs...

  "Stop please!" I beg the police. "Sorry ma'ma we'll have to escort you home." They lead Willow and Brandon to the back of a cop car. "No!" I run to Brandon, not letting anyone stop me. I grab him. "I love you!" I shout. "I love you too." He whispers. I feel the mans hands pull me away, watching Brandon being shoved in the cop car...

  My parents greet me, hugging me. "Echo you're home now." Mom whispers. "Let me go." I say, bitter. She stares at me. "Echo Winter Lexer! We are your parents, and we just got you back. act like a good girl!" I glared. "I hate it locked up. Why did you think I left?" Mom shrugged. "Thought you were going through a rebellion, but now that's over and you'll stay in your room so we can protect you." I shake my head. "No. I don't want to go back! For the first time ever I was happy. Don't you want me happy, or do you want me alone in my room forever?" My mom shrugs again. " Safe. That's all I want for you." All I want is Brandon, but who cares.
