4. Chapter 4 "Your Family is Crazy"

Chapter 4

There I was again, in what looked like the same warehouse. I stiffened. Does this mean someone else is being killed right now? I walked forward hesitantly. All of a sudden a scream resonated throughout the warehouse. I jumped and ran forward. Something tripped me. I fell with a scream and turned my head.

There was a wire. I heard someone breathing behind me and turned around. He was standing right in front of my face. A silent scream came out of my mouth. I was frozen, I couldn't move. Then he screamed and ran towards me with a glinting knife. I screamed.

I sat up in my bed quickly. My hands were shaking and my breathing was ragged. My vision was blurry as I looked at the clock. It looked like it said 5:43 a.m. I sighed and fell back on the bed. There was no way I would be able to fall asleep after that.

I slipped off of my bed and went straight to the bathroom. The door was cold to the touch as I opened it. I shivered and grabbed the handle to turn on the water. Yawning I took off my clothes and got in.

I almost moaned. The water was so warm and relaxing. Breathe blew out of my mouth and I squirted the shampoo in my hand. I massaged it into my hair and relaxed even more. Soap and water  went down the drain as I cleaned my hair.

Soon enough I finished my shower and just stood there in the water letting the water flow down my body. The water was starting to become cold but I didn't move. Why are these dreams happening? Does he know about me? Will he find me and kill me too?

I jumped when someone knocked on  the bathroom door. "Who is it?" I yelled.

"Umm, it's Theo. Sorry to bother you but your mom said I could come to your room." He sounded nervous.

I blushed. "Ok, I'll be out in a sec." I turned the shower off and stepped out. My eyes widened. I didn't have any clothes. I blushed even more. That would mean that I had to go out there with only a towel on.

Drying off I quickly put my towel on my body tightly. I opened the door nervously and saw Theo sitting on his bed. He looked up and his eyes widened. He blushed. "Umm.. I'll just..." he pointed his finger to the door and walked out quickly.

I blushed and nodded. I found some clothes and put them on quickly. Once I found my brush I opened the door. Theo was standing in front of the door blushing. I blushed again at the thought of him only seeing me with a towel. I motioned my hand to let him know he could come in my room now and he did.

"Sephora, keep your door open." Mom yelled.

"Don't do anything I wouldn't do..." Dad started to yelled but then he yelled ow. My eyes widened in shock and then I snorted. I rolled my eyes and walked over to Theo, who was sitting on my bed.

"So, uh how did you sleep?" He asked nervously.

I sat on the bed right by him and started brushing my hair. I hesitated but decided to answer truthfully. "I had a nightmare again." I said quietly.

He peeked up and said," Do you want to talk about it?"

I hesitated but nodded. "Nobody was dying this time but he didn't just look at me this time. He was right in my face and tried to stab me. But what I don't get is how he saw me. It's just a dream, he shouldn't be able to see me." I said scared and confused.

He put his arm around my shoulders and pulled me close to him. "It'll be alright. We'll figure this out." I smiled at laid my head on his shoulder.

"Mhmm." Someone cleared my throat. I looked at the door and saw Dad. I rolled my eyes. He pointed between us and said, "No cuddling. Or anything like that. No, no. Not in my house." Dad grabbed my arm and pulled me over. I snorted and he sat down between us.

Theo looked so awkward. My face was heating up and I couldn't breathe. I was trying so hard not to die of laughter. "Lucas, where did you go?" Mom yelled.

I rolled my eyes and yelled ,"In here," before Dad said anything. Mom steps sounded throughout the house. She stepped into my doorway and rolled her eyes.

She sighed and said, "What are you doing in your daughters room? Between her and a boy." She raised her eyebrows.

"They were cuddling. So I thought I would join in." He said very seriously. I snorted and shook my head. My dad is worse than me. She slapped her hand on her forehead.

She lifted her hands in the air as if asking God why her husband was so stupid. I snickered. "Just leave the room. Your daughter has a boy over. That means we don't embarrass her and don't come in her room. Unless we hear strange noise." I snorted and hit my hand against my hand.

"You just said you wouldn't embarrass me and you are." I said smartly.

'Don't you get smart with me young lady." She retorted. I rolled my eyes.

"Umm, we should probably go." Theo said shyly. I looked over at him and couldn't help but chuckle. Dad literally had his arm around his shoulder and had his head on his shoulder. I nodded deciding to save him.

"Let's go." I said and got up. Theo tried to get up but Dad was still on him. I rolled my eyes and glared at Dad.

"Dad, let go of Theo." I said slowly as if I was talking to a child.

Dad pouted and I swear I just died. "But, I'm not done cuddling with him." He whined.

I lost it then. I burst out laughing. My whole body was shaking and I fell back on my bed. "Umm, a little help would be nice." Theo mumbled.

I tried to stop laughing. I really did but I couldn't. Mom sighed and grabbed Dad's ear. "Ow, ow, ow. Please stop." Dad begged and stood up.

I finally controlled myself and snickered quietly. Theo sighed in relief and stood up. Mom pulled Dad out of the room and I grabbed my backpack. Once it was in my hand we walked behind them with Theo hiding behind me. I snickered again.

"You don't have to hide behind me." I teased him.

"Are you sure? Cause your Dad just cuddled with me. And by the way thanks for the help." He said sarcastically.

I laughed. "I'm sorry. I would have but I couldn't stop laughing." I said humor clear in my voice.

"I could tell." He said sarcastically.

I giggled and walked into the kitchen with Theo right behind me. Dad was sitting at the table drinking his coffee. I chuckled. He looked so normal now with a newspaper in front of his face. Theo still stayed behind me looking scared.

I grinned at him and grabbed a strawberry Pop-tart. "Want anything to eat?" I asked.

Theo shook his head. "No, thanks. We actually have to go soon. I'm driving you to school, if that's alright of course."

I grinned. "That's fine." Theo sighed in relief. I looked at the clock and gasped. "We should probably leave now." I said hurriedly and shoved the rest of the pop-tart in my mouth. Theo nodded and I gave Mom a kiss on the cheek. I went over to Dad and kissed him on the cheek also.

"Have a good day baby girl. I love you." Dad said sweetly. I rolled my eyes.

"Love you too Dad. Bye Mom! Love you!" I yelled behind me.

"Love you too baby. I'll see you after school." She yelled back.

Theo opened the door for me and I walked out. He came out of the house right behind me and shut the door. He opened the car door for me too. "Such a gentleman." I teased and sat down in the passenger seat.

He blushed and closed the door. He went around the front of the car and stepped in. Shaking his head he started the car.

"What?" I said amused.

"Your family is crazy." He said smiling.

I grinned. "I'll take that as a compliment."

He raised his eyebrows. "Oh, it was a compliment."

I laughed and said," That's actually pretty normal for my dad."

His eyes widened in what looked like shock. "Then I don't want to see him when he is crazy."

I giggled. "Probably not." I agreed.  I grinned just thinking about Dad cuddling with Theo. In fact, we were both so busy thinking about what just happened that we didn't even notice the guy standing in the backyard of my neighbor's house.
