I woke up in a bed, a soft warm bed. It was so comfy, I felt comfortable for once. Until I realised I had no idea where I am, who brought me here and who the hell took my clothes off. I felt my body, I still had my underwear on but I was wearing a big shirt, a man's shirt, I threw the covers off of me and looked around the room. There were pictures on the wall of teenagers, at parties at the beach, a family. There was a desk with a computer on it, a couple of clothes thrown over the chair, the bedding was dark grey and the bedside tables had text books on them. This was a guys room, a teenage guys room. A door opposite me opened and a boy stepped out, he was kind of tall and was rubbing his dirty blonde hair with a towel, he looked up at me and stopped what he was doing. 

"Hey, are you okay?" 
"Where are my clothes? Did you undress me!?" I stayed glued to the bed but the boy made his way over to me, his hands up in defense. "Listen I'm not gonna try anything funny okay, I found you on the side of the road, you were unconscious and you were barely breathing, I couldn't just leave you there." I figured that was an okay reason, I still didn't trust him though. 
"Where am I?" 
"You're in my house." 
"Where is your house?"
"In Queens, New York."

"Do you...wanna take a shower? I can lend you some clothes until yours are clean." 
He led me to where the shower was and I turned it on the hottest it could go, I washed all the dry blood off and scrubbed myself until I felt clean. Why did I have blood everywhere? Why was I in so much pain? I stepped out and put on clothes the strange boy had left out for me and I headed upstairs and found my way into the kitchen where the boy sat. 

"Hey do you want something to eat?" I nodded at him and he slid a plate of pancakes over to me, they were drizzled in syrup and blueberries. I ate them up in a split second. I was so hungry. 

"So..uh,, what's your name?" 
"Victoria, yours?" I said without looking up.
"Caleb. What happened to you, your face is pretty bad."
"I have no idea." I replied sipping my orange juice. "I don't remember anything that's happened recently. All I know is my name."

The front door swung open. "Cay! I'm back!" A girl stood at the doorway. She had long blonde hair and plump red lips with rosy cheeks, she looked at me and I looked at her. "Cay, who is the half naked girl sitting at the counter?"
"This is Victoria, a friend of mine from camp last year. She's just come in to town to say hi."
"Ohh okay, I'm Alana, Caleb's sister, nice to meet you Victoria." She held out her hand and I shook it. 
"Nice to meet you too Alana." 
"Well I'm gonna pack these bags away and get ready. I'm going out tonight with everyone so I wont be home till tomorrow, are you still going out with Ry and everyone?" 
"Uhh, yeah I am." 
"Okay see you tomorrow baby bro." Alana skipped upstairs and out of sight. 

"Soo um.. you feel like going out today or?"
"Uhh yeah I do, I mean I got nothing else to do." 
"Good, so uh, your clothes will probably be dry by now so you can wear those and we'll get going."
