Lake Green

I frowned at my best friends failing to tie a knot for the boat. “Do you need some assistance?” I asked him. “No, I got this.” He growled at me in frustration. I scoffed and looked out at the shining, glistening lake. The wind started howling and the air became a little bitter. I shivered and crossed my arms over my chest for warmth. “Wyatt, it’s going to start raining soon.” I winned. He looked up at me with a glare. “Dylan, stop being annoying.” he said plainly to me.


5. Chapter 5

I had this warm fuzzy feeling in my chest, and I couldn’t get rid of it. I had no idea what it was, or where it came from. All I knew was that it was there, and I knew for whatever reason it is there, I like it. I just couldn’t get my mind off of it all day. And that was the only thing bugging me.

    “Hello? Dylan?” Wyatt waved his hand in front of my face, breaking me from my trance. “Uh? What?” I asked. Dominic and Wyatt gave me a strange look. “We were talking about how crazy Matthew was.” Dominic said. I felt my stomach do a backflip. Matt wasn’t crazy, he is just different. They didn’t know the true Matthew. The one that doesn’t kill, that doesn’t scare kids, that doesn’t kidnap people, that is kind and caring. They never met that Matthew, and I have.

    “Oh, yeah, I guess he was crazy yesterday.” I mumbled. “He was probably just drunk.” I told them. They both nodded in agreement. The three of us sat there by Lake Green staring out at the water. I heard a sigh from beside me, but I didn’t turn to look. “Something is bothering you.” Dominic said out of nowhere. I turned to face him. “What?” I asked a tad bit confused. “Something seems to be bothering you.” He replied. Wyatt seemed to pick up on what he was getting at. “Yeah, it does seem that way. You know you can talk to us, right?” He asked.

    The problem with this picture was that they seemed to know what the other was talking about. But, on the other hand, I was confused and a fish out of water. “I am fine, nothing is bothering me, I am just thinking.” I state and turn back to stare out at the water. Wyatt moved closer to me, and out of the corner of my eye, I saw him smirk. “About what?” He asked. I turned back to them with a frown. “About what happened yesterday.” I tell them truthfully. It was the truth. I couldn’t shake Matthew off my mind. I was thinking he was a crazy son of a bitch, but at the same time, he wasn’t even close to being crazy.

    It was like Matt had a sick, yet smart, way of thinking. He solved problems by killing. But, he also acted so sweet, nice, and caring. I didn’t know which Matthew was real, and which was fake. It’s like trying to find your way out a mirror maze. There is only one turn, but you see so many openings.

    “Yeah, because nothing is bothering you.” Dominic said waving his hand in front of my face. “I am still on earth you guys.” I stated. I stood up and stretched out my legs and arms. If only they knew what I did. “Are you leaving us now?” Wyatt asked looking up at me. I let out a long sigh before nodding my head. “Yes, Matthew asked me to pick some things up at the store.” I almost mumbled to them. I saw Wyatt roll his eyes. “Why are you picking things up for that creep?” He spat at me. I felt my jaw clenched tight and anger rising up in my chest. “Because, he is still my ‘father figure’” I quoted with my fingers and they laughed.

    I walked away before I had to punch one of them in the face. I knew that Matthew had done something wrong, but I couldn’t help but to forgive him. He really is like a father figure to me so, why not start acting more trustworthy with him? I had just taken a left down my street, realizing that I hadn’t got the things that Matthew told me to get. I look at the house and see Matthew coming outside to wait for me to get there with the things, and when I seen that, I took off running to the store to get the stuff he wanted before he really did kill me, or anyone at that. I got to the store in about five minutes.

I ran in and went to the flower aisle and grabbed the biggest one I could find. I also grabbed some chocolate for him as well. I mean, he didn’t ask for it, but I think he can use it too. As soon as I got all of the things Matthew had asked for, I ran back home.

“Why are you late?” Matthew hissed at me. “I was getting the stuff, it was to hard to find at the store.” I looked down at the ground feeling like I was gonna get caught. “Oh alright, but next time, don’t be late.” He hissed, but not as much as he did when I first got home. I handed him the two bags that I got from the store and he took them happily. I the followed him inside the house and sat down at the table.

I was hoping that he wasn’t still mad. “Here.” He said, and I looked up to see the flowers I got. “What?” I asked taking the flowers from him. “Aw, how cute, you had no idea that I was having you pick up your own gift.” Matt chuckled. I smiled down at the flowers that I had picked up. I knew that it was rude of him to have me pick them up, but it is the nicest thing he has done for me. “T-thank you.” I stuttered. I looked up to see a big smile on his face, and for some odd reason, I got butterflies.

I looked back down at the flowers and stood up. I walked into the kitchen and found something that would work as a vase. I put the flowers in it and gave them water. I looked back over at Matthew just as he pulled out the chocolate that I had got for him. He turned to me and held up the box in question. I smiled at him. “I thought you needed some.” I told him as I placed the vase of flowers on the table. “Thanks Kitten.” I heard him say. I felt myself blush.

I sat down at the table and rested my head on my arms. I must’ve dozed off for a few minutes, because the next thing I knew, Matt was cooking. “What are you cooking?” I asked Matthew. “Um, well the thing is…. I don’t know.” He looked over at me. Oh gawd, this is how i’m going to die. “If you don’t know, then why are you cooking it?” I questioned looking in the pot. “Well, I wanted this to be special.” He looked down at the pot and blushed. All I could manage to choke out was an ‘Oh’. But while I was looking at him, I couldn’t help but think that he was cute while blushing at the pot on the stove. I mean, look at him, those dimples only show when he is truly happy, and boy oh boy look at his smile. Those pearl white teeth.

“Kitten? Where you even listening?” Matt frowned. “Oh, um no, i’m sorry, I was just thinking of something.” I said taking my eyes away from him. “Thinking about what?” He asked leaning into me a little. I felt my heart about to jump out of me chest. What was he hoping to get out of this? “None of your business.” I state, even though it was all of his business. “It isn’t?” He questioned, take yet another step making us come closer together. I took a big step back. “Yep, it’s none of your business, now if you excuse me, I will be right back.” I said turning and dashing into the bathroom.

Once in the safety of the bathroom, I looked into the mirror. My face looked like a cherry tomato. I slapped my cheeks to pull myself together. “You must be dreaming, there is no way that he would….” I gulped. “....come onto you.” My face turned an even darker red. “You are over reacting.” I told myself. I let out a sigh and splashed cold water on my face. Then there was a knock on the door. “You okay Kitten?” Matthew asked. “Um...yeah I’m fine, nothing to worry about.” I started nervously. “Okay….” He didn’t sound convinced. There was a long pause. “Um...anyway, I burnt whatever I was making, so…..Pizza?” He asked. I chuckled and opened the door. “Pizza.” I answered. He smiled his big smile that I loved so much.  

“Okay, let me grab my phone and we will go.” I tell him. He nodded and walked back into the kitchen. I let out a sigh and gathered my phone and wallet. “Ready, Kitten?” He asked as I walked into the kitchen. “Yep, let’s go.” I said with a smile.
