Brittany and Chance had just pressed their lips together as the first bullet came flying past his head.
It was pouring, and it was dark. Michelle didn't let just one bullet fly, she let many hurtle towards Chance's head. She kept shooting, as Chance and Brittany took off running down the road with Madison and Gabe.
The gun shots, still ringing in Brittany's head. It hurt her. Chance still holding her hand, it didn't make anything feel any better. But, he was trying, so she accepted it the best she could. They slowed down when they saw an empty alley that was at least a mile from the hotel. They stopped and caught their breath. It was still pouring and it wouldn't stop. At least the rain hid their tears that were streaming down their faces.
Chance embraced Brittany, and she cried on his shoulder. She didn't let go, and she didn't want to lose him. He couldn't leave her. He pressed his lips against hers to try and calm her down a little. This was going too far. They kissed in the pouring rain, but it wasn't the same as it was before. It was in fear.
They drew back, and they all sat there in silence, and fear. Gabe and Madison held hands, and said nothing. Head on each others shoulders, not even that helped. They got up, with the tears drying on their faces. The rain had died down, and they started walking home...
Nobody was in sight. There was the rain soaked streets, and their footsteps. Nothing else but the silence of the abandoned streets. Hand in hand they walked a mile in darkness and silence.
They approached the hotel, and the door was locked. A note read on the door;
Kids, I'm glad to tell you that you can go back to your apartment. I know what's been going on, and I've done what I can. Go home, kids. You all need it. -Krissi.
They walked to the apartment, and the door was open. Nobody inside, but it was open. They walked in and looked at everything. It brought back memories, and tears. They closed and locked the door, and laid down on their beds. Together Chance and Brittany laid, close. Chance pressed his lips against Brittany's and they snuggled closer. Chance drew back and whispered good night to her. She whispered good night, and laid her head on his chest. He kissed her head, and closed his eyes. They all drifted to sleep.
