Trouble: Doubled

Just as Liz thought everything was back to normal, things take a twist and slowly start falling down hill again. Even though Hayes is not allowed to be around her, he still somehow manages to screw with her head and mess with all of her relationships.... Or is Liz letting her past come back to haunt her?


17. Meeting Taylor

    The next morning I decided not to go to school, but instead I went to visit where Danny was buried. “Hey, Danny.” I say, sitting next to his headstone. “I miss you like crazy... obviously. I wish you were here. I had a dream about you the other day. You came back to us and we were just hanging out, it was only for a few minutes but it was the best few minutes I've had in a long time... Jack and I broke up last night. I...” I stop and bite the inside of my lip. I'm talking to myself. There is nobody here, Danny isn't here, I'm talking to myself.
    “It's hard.. isn't it?” I hear a voice behind me.
    I turn around a see the boy that Nash was hanging out with the other day, he was wearing that yellow bandana again. I nod and shrug at the same time.
    “I'm sorry, who was he?” he sat next to me, calmly.
    “A friend...” I bite my cheek. “A good friend.”
    “Everything happens for a reason.”
    I give him a confused look and nod again.
    “Oh, sorry. I'm Taylor.”
    “I've seen you before... you're Nash's friend, right?”
    He smiled a little. “That's right.”
    “The leave me alone.” I get up and start walking away.
    “Wait, what?” he followed me. “Why? What's wrong?”
    I bite my cheek again and think about what happen last night. “Because.”
    “Look, whatever happened between you and Nash or Hayes or whatever shouldn't affect me.”
    “I don't want to be friends with you.”
    He stopped. “I never said I wanted to be friends.”
    I stop too and look at him. His yellow bandana didn't really match his green flannel shirt but I don't think he cared. “Good. So what do you want.”
    He shook his head.
    “Why are you here? Do you know someone who has passed?”
    He shook his head again.
    I give him a confused, suspicious look and take a step back. He was now being pretty shady and I started to get worried, I start looking around as casually as I could but I think he caught on that I was getting scared.
    He chuckled, he didn't have too bad of a smile though. “I'm not going to do anything.”
    I shrug. “I don't know that.”
    He raised his eyebrows.
    “I don't know you, don't take it personally.”
    He shrugged again. “Okay, true. For all you know, I could be completely insane, I could be planning on killing you right here, right now. I mean, it would be kind of ironic, right? We're in a graveyard. Over there, Hayes and Nash could be standing behind the tree, waiting for me to catch you off guard.” he pointed to the tree that had to be less than 5 feet away from us. “I could be carrying some type of knife in my pocket and you wouldn't even know it.” he shrugged.
    I take another step back and hold my phone tighter in my hand.
    His smile dropped. “Relax.” he put his hands in the air. “I was only kidding.”
    My pulse was still racing, who's to say he wasn't. “I um, I have to make a phone call” I dial my mom's number. It rang once, nothing, it rang again, nothing. In the middle of the third ring she answered.
    “He-hello, honey.” her voice was shaky.
    “Mom? I need you to come pick me up.”
    She didn't answer, but I could hear her breathing.
    “Mom?” I say again. I feel hands wrap around my waist and mouth.
    “I'm sorry. I am so sorry, I really am.” he whispered, it was Taylor.
    I try to squirm out but he was a lot stronger than he looked.
    “I'm not a bad person. I promise you, I don't wanna do this.” he whispered again.
    I feel a sharp sting in my neck and I could feel myself going to sleep, and just as I closed my eyes, I see Hayes come out from behind me.
