11. Willow's house
Willow did find love...
Her boyfriend, Eric, is super nice. He treats Willow great. "Would you two like some different clothes, no offence but you guys smell." He laughs. Willow hands me a blue sundress. "You'll look great." I pull it on over my pale body. I'm almost albino. Brandon wore a gray tee shirt and a flannel shirt. "Hey Echo." I hug him tight. "Um guys, theirs a man hunt going on for you Echo." I turn to Eric. "What?" He pointed to the tv. A blonde reporter with a very noticeable spray on tan stood there. "Ms. Echo Lexer went missing Saturday evening, last seen getting on a bus, here is her parents." Mom begins to speak. "Echo, please come home, we miss you. We're so sorry." She didn't look legit. "Please don't tell them." I beg Willow. "I won't. I promise." Willow orders pizza, pepperoni, my favorite. Our parents my have been psychos but they knew teen girls love pizza. I swallow a few bites and look up. We are all eating lots of pizza.
Willow sets up two beds in the same room. "Don't you kids get to crazy." She laughs, leaving us. I hug Brandon. "I'm so glad to see you in flesh and blood. More beautiful than I've ever imagined." He whispers, sending chills down my spine. "Thanks, but my eye must freak you out." I say. "You're so insecure and I don't know why." He says. I shrug.
It's almost midnight and I can't sleep. I keep having the same nightmare, my parents holding Brandon, him tied up and screaming, his mother and mine hitting him with a hammer. I'm glued to the floor, unable to move from my spot, yelling for them to please stop. The I see Willow, tied in chains, forced to watch more hit him with a hammer. "AHHH!" I wake up. The room is pitch black. "Echo are you okay?" Brandon whispered. "Y-yeah, just a bad dream." He reaches across and rubs my arm. "B-brandon will you lay with me?" He laughs. "Yeah." I look and see he's in a gray tee shirt and boxers. "Don't try anything, I will scream." I laugh. I lay there in his arms, my mind completely blank. And it all goes dark soon enough.
