Finding the Truth

Exactly 14 days ago, four boys went missing in the Bremin forest on a field trip. I was supposed to be with them, but I was sick for some odd reason. Because I am never sick. Then, exactly two days ago, they mysteriously returned. My name is Katrina Perish, and I made it my personal mission to find out what happened.
Now they have returned and are suddenly friends. But now, there is someone who is trying to discover their secret and wants to know badly. But when old demons return and all hell breaks loose. There is reason for worry from the boys. But when Kat goes missing after ‘hanging’ with the boys, does it call for a search party when she goes where they were?


3. Chapter 2

Chapter 2:

Oh my god… I can’t believe I’m actually doing this. I frowned when no one answered the door.

“Oh god, please don’t kill me,” I chanted as I pushed opened the door and slowly moved into the room. I was mad when I saw Jake lying on his bed, but it instantly dissipated when I saw he was asleep with a set of headphones sitting on his head. His dirty blonde hair hanging over his forehead slightly covering the top of his face, his blue eyes hidden by  his eyelids, but the redness around them shows that he too, had been missing sleep.

I didn’t want to wake the sleeping boy, but I wanted a hug from my friend. It’s weird; I haven’t seen him in almost two weeks. And I feel like I haven’t seen him in two years. I smiled at the thought, and knew in that moment I had to wake him up.

I slowly walked over to the bed and sat on the side of it, the card in my hand. With my other hand, I gently pulled his headphones off and sat them on the table next to his bed. With the hand I used to pull Jake’s headphones off with, I placed it on his shoulder and quickly shook him. This caused him to fuss,

“Get off me Felix.” I stifled a laugh and shook his again,

“Felix seriously fuck off. Unless there is something attacking us, I want. To. Sleep.” I frowned and pulled my hand away. What would attack you out in the ranges? Possums, wallabies, stupid drunk townies?

“Jake… it’s me Katrina.” Jake stopped fussing and opened his eyes to look at me,

“Kat, What are you doing here?” I frowned, and got up off the bed and picking up my bag off the floor,

“Sorry Jake… I um… got you this. Bye,” I literally dropped the card on the floor, turned and ran out of Jake’s room. Not letting him say a word to me. I felt like my heart had been ripped out of my chest. Jake didn’t see me as a friend, he just saw me as someone he knew and was ‘nice’ to. Please, nice my ass.

As I fled the house I didn’t even bother looking back as I went home.

Jake’s P.O.V

What was Kat doing here? I blushed when I realised she saw me sleeping. I shook that from my head and pulled myself from my bed where I had accidentally fallen asleep. I looked at the blue envelope on the floor and picked it up. She got me a card? Why? I frowned as I ripped it opened and pulled out the card.

I smiled when I saw the cover. It had ‘Welcome Home’ written across the top of it, with a cute little tabby underneath it smiling. I instantly knew why she chose this card. I opened it up and grinned even wider when I saw her curly handwriting. As I read it aloud,

‘Dear Jake,

Welcome home. I… don’t really know what to write, and I hope you like the card. I hope its katty enough for you. Anyway, I just wanted to say welcome home and I missed not having you here.

            Bye. Love Kat.’

My grin vanished when I realised, she must have thought I didn’t see her as a friend, and that’s why she left. Oh damn it. I jumped from the bed finding the nearest shoes I could find, which happened to be the ones I was wearing when I got ‘lost’ with the others.

I bolted out the door and after Kat. Hopefully I could catch up to her… but I don’t know where she could be. I scanned the street, and at the end of it, I saw someone all dressed in black. I had to take a chance; it was going to be one of three people. I sighed and ran as fast as I could to the figure and it wasn’t Kat, but it was Ellen, Felix and Kats friend.

“Hey Ellen,” I called. Ellen slowly turned to face me with a slight glare on her face. She crossed her arms and took in who I was,

“What do you want?” I frowned,

“I’m looking for Kat, have you seen her?” Ellen thought for a minute before shaking her head,

“No. I haven’t seen her since about a half hour ago when she was buying cards. I was helping her.” I nodded,

“Do you know where she might be? Or where she lives? I don’t even know that,” Ellen gave me an odd look,

“And why should I tell you?” I sighed,

“Because we had a misunderstanding and she didn’t even give me time to explain anything and I really, really need to talk to her about it.” Ellen sighed and gave in.

“If you can beat her to Felix’s house, then you will intercept her. But she lives in his street, number nineteen.” I smiled and patted her on the shoulder.

“Thank you, so much Ellen. It means a lot.” She nodded and scoffed, before walking off. I smiled and started sprinting in the direction of Felix’s house. The only reason I knew where he lived was because I used to egg his house. Well, that and I went there a few times in the other universe.

It was weird being there. Seeing my mum happy and living with Bates, and married. Gary was a cop. Felix’s brother Oscar could walk, Ellen was normal and popular, and obsessed with Andy. And Sam was replaced. That is what the world would be like if we didn’t exist.

It was funny, on one of our first days there, Felix asked for proof that we existed, so I pinched him and said ‘There’s your proof’ and laughed at him. I was a fair asshole back then. Two weeks running from a demon and living in a shack can really warp your perspective of things.

Being in the other universe showed to me that even without me leading them Trent and Dylan were still bullies. Mum and Dad would have been better off if I didn’t exist, living happier lives. And Kat would be being abused at school. When I saw Kat in the other universe for the first time, I was so happy to see her. But when she didn’t know who I was, all I know is that I just hurt a lot. And she wasn’t Goth; she was emo, so she was hurting herself. I just hope she didn’t do that in this universe.

I frowned at the thought as I finished running through town and was now nearing Felix’s house when I saw her, Kat. I smiled but frowned again when I saw her move her hand to her face and stop walking for a little bit. I took this as my chance and ran to her; I was behind her and decided to surprise her.

When I was close enough, I wrapped my arms around her entire being, including her arms and spun her around. Once I was finished, I didn’t let go of her, my head sitting on the top of her head, like I always did when she cried.

“Why did you leave?” Kat scoffed,

“The better question is ‘why was I even there in the first place?’ And I get the feeling neither of us know the answer to it,” I felt her struggle to try and get away from me, so I held on even tighter,

“I do. You missed me, and I missed you. We’re friends. That’s what happens when people who are friends don’t see each other for a long time.” Kat stopped moving altogether. I frowned. And let go of her. She slowly turned to face me.

Kat’s P.O.V

I turned to face him after his confession.

“Are we friends now Jake? I thought I was just someone you put up with.” I could feel the tears pooling at my eyes again, I bit my lip and forced them back. I don’t know why I was crying; well, at least crying over him.

“What Jake? Got nothing to say? Go on. Say it, I can handle it.” I can’t handle it. But I had to say it so he would tell me.

“How could you be friends, to someone as mean as me?” I froze again. I then looked at his face and saw him looking at the ground. I closed my eyes and bit my tongue hard, before using both my hands and pulling Jake’s face so it was on top of my head. I smiled at how comfortable I now felt in the familiar position.

“Because I know it’s all an act, the bullying, and the mister tough guy. You might be a liar, but you are also honest at the same time. You told me about yourself when you have never told anyone else. And I was a complete stranger at the time. Everyone lies. But you lie for good reasons.” I felt Jake finally wrap his arms around me and hug me tightly.

“Thank you Katrina. And you are my friend. And I really fucking missed you while I was gone.” I bit my lip and wrapped my arms around Jake’s neck and pulled him closer if it were possible.

“I am so sorry I ran out on you before. I made a mistake, well I think I did. I shouldn’t have gotten you the card, and I should have waited to see you at school. I’m sorry,” Jake squeezed me tightly,

“Don’t ever be sorry for something that isn’t your fault. I was tired so I was rude and shouldn’t have even been asleep in the first place. You should have gotten me the card like you did. And you should have given it to me properly, instead of just dropping it on the ground of my room. I loved it Kat. So don’t ever be sorry for anything okay?” I nodded and pulled away from Jake’s hug.

“Thank you Jake.” Jake shook his head,

“No. Thank you for the card. And for being my only friend,” I blushed and rubbed the back of my neck,

“I’m not your only friend but okay. You’re welcome. But I actually have to go and get ready for something.” Jake frowned,

“What are you getting for?” I smiled and frowned at the same time.

“I have to go to Felix’s welcome home dinner. My dad got invited and so now I have to go to it. I had to go out and buy Felix a card even though I’m not friends with his. And then I have to write in it and then give it to him when I’ve only talked to the guy once and all I was doing was saying sorry for bumping into him. But he yelled at me and I don’t think he likes me very much and…” I was cut off by Jake putting his hand over my mouth. I growled but couldn’t push his hand away,

“Kat, you’re overreacting. Felix doesn’t hate you; he might have just been having a bad day and was grumpy, albeit he’s always having a bad day, but still. You just need to calm down and try talking to him again. Don’t forget your dad helped in finding us, okay?” I frowned nodded. Jake then pulled his hand away and smiled at me.

“Okay, now I have to get back home so I can shower before mum takes me out for tea. And you need to make sure you stay calm and try to be friends with Felix. If he doesn’t want to, he needs to get over himself and be nicer. That what I did, but I was always a nice person.” I giggled at Jake’s ramble and he smiled at me.

“You’re all good?” I nodded smiling.

“Yep, I am now. All thanks to you. Now go home and spend time with your mum. You haven’t seen her properly for twelve days.” Jake nodded,

“Okay, okay, I’ll see you at school yeah?” I nodded again and then shooed him.

“Go home Jake.” This was the final time I had to tell him because he finally left. I rolled my eyes and continued on with my walk home. When I arrived I called out to dad,

“Daddy, I’m home!” when I didn’t hear a reply I frowned. Knowing dad, he was probably in the kitchen reading. And I was kind of right. He was in the kitchen, with Sergeant Roberts standing next to him with two other cops.

“Dad… what’s going on?” Dad frowned,

“Those people need to ask you some questions.” I frowned… what the hell?!
