15. LYLLIANNE'S POV
I was sitting on the couch at Matthew’s home when I feel my phone vibrate in my pocket. You should come to Jules, Zar is going through a toughy… It was Michelle. Oh crap, what about Matthew? Should I bring him with me? I decided I would. I can’t just leave him. Plus that stalker, whoever she is, might still be hanging around. As we approached Judy’s house, she ran out in a hurry and bumped right into Matthew, quickly apologizing and running off. Since she was running in the direction of England’s house, I figured something had happened. “On second thought, let’s not go there.” I said, making a complete 180.
“Yeah, I agree.” he said, also turning around. Just then, I saw that girl that had been stalking me before hide behind a wall. I swallowed hard. I turned and looked at Matthew. Yep, he saw her too. Stepping in front of me, he led the way back to his house. Once we were inside, he spun to face me. “This is insane. You’re not safe like this.” he said.
“I know, but what can I do? She’s armed.” I responded. Matthew ran a hand through his hair in frustration and paced a little. Is this an inappropriate time to think about how hot he looks right now? Yes, yes it is, I thought. Stop it. “Maybe Miche has some ideas. She’s always been pretty badass.”
“Hmm.” Matthew mumbled, still a bit lost in thought. I let Aya climb up onto my shoulder. Ever since I found out I had a stalker she’s been staying at Matthew’s as well. Matthew looked out of the window, a worried expression on his face. He was clearly very concerned about my safety. He looked at me and nodded, then led me out, keeping an eye out for the stalker the entire time. But as we approached Al’s house, I saw that the mysterious figure was, in fact, waiting for us. This isn’t good. Aya snuggled up to my neck, scared but also protective. Matthew put an arm around my shoulder and stepped slightly ahead of me, preparing to ward off any attacks. I wish he wouldn’t put himself in danger for me, but I suppose he is the immortal one here.
