7. Reaching out.

It was early. Earlier than dawn and already I heard a knock at the door. A quick, desperate knock. Like a cry for help. I pulled on an over-sized shirt and plummeted down the stairs. I yanked the door open and stared out. A familiar face looked back at me. "God, you look awful." What was Shane doing at my door at 5 in the morning? Damn it. I looked down at myself. I was a mess, stained shirt, bare legs and tatty chewed fingernails. "I knocked last night?" Shane looked at me. "You weren't in. I was worried about you." He was worried about me? I hope he has a good reason for being here. "Do you want to go on a walk?" Oh of course, because it's completely normal to go asking a stranger for a walk in the middle of winter. That would have been a good thing to say. Instead I just said, "Sure, OK, I'd love to." Damn, I sounded over excited, like a love sick puppy. He stared at what I was wearing with a look between confusion and disgust. "I'll go get changed," I muttered and shut the door. When I came back down he was still stood there, waiting. I can't believe I shut the door on him, I should have asked him in for a cup of tea or something. He gave me a nod and started walking towards the forest.
