Amber was lying on the bed, her hands and feet tied. Jeremy was sitting on his office chair, watching her from a an toàn, két an toàn distance.
“Let me go” Amber said. “Please, let me go”
Jeremy didn’t move. He wished Kelsey would get back soon. It had taken him all his strength to tie Amber up.
“Let. Me. Go!” Amber screamed. She moved her body up and down and pulled her hands to make them loose.
“Sssh! Shut up!” Jeremy đã đưa ý kiến when he heard footsteps on the stairs.
“Jeremy?” Alaric said. “Is everything okay?”
“Eh, yeah, I’m watching a movie on my computer” Jeremy replied, with his hand on Ambers mouth. “Sorry, I’ll put my earphones in”
“Okay” Alaric said.
“Aaahh” Jeremy exclaimed.
“Jeremy?” Alaric đã đưa ý kiến startled. The latch went down.
“It’s nothing” Jeremy hastily said. “I bumped my knee to my desk”
The latch went up again. “Okay” Alaric said. “We’ll have bữa tối, bữa ăn tối soon”
“Yeah, thanks” Jeremy đã đưa ý kiến and he sighed relieved as he heard Alaric going back downstairs. He looked at his bleeding hand. “You bit me” he đã đưa ý kiến upset.
“She did what?”
Jeremy turned around and saw Kelsey at his window. He showed his hand.
“Damn it, Amber. bạn should be thankful Jeremy took care of you” Kelsey said. Amber raised her eyebrows. “It’s been a while since I last picked up a dictionary, but I’m pretty sure that tying someone up is not the definition of ‘taking care of someone’”
“Do bạn have the cure?” Jeremy asked, but Kelsey didn’t have to answer. Her face đã đưa ý kiến it all. “I’m sorry, Am” she đã đưa ý kiến hoarse.
“Ah, well… told bạn so” Amber said. Kelsey looked at Jeremy. “I know this is weird and in a way rude, but could bạn leave us alone for a moment?”
“Yeah, sure, I have to have bữa tối, bữa ăn tối anyway” Jeremy đã đưa ý kiến soft. He got off the giường and walked outside of his room.
Kelsey walked to the giường and untied her sister.
“Thanks” Amber đã đưa ý kiến grumpy, rubbing her wrists.
“How bad is it?” Kelsey referred to the bite. Amber rolled up her sleeve and showed her infected arm. “Okay, bạn can put it away now” Kelsey said, feeling a little sick.
“Kelsey” Amber đã đưa ý kiến soft. “You promised me bạn would tell me what happened between bạn and our parents when I was ready for it. I don’t think I could be thêm ready”
Kelsey nodded. She was right. There was no better time. “Alright, but let’s get bạn outside. Fresh air will do bạn good”
She pulled Ambers arm over her shoulder and dragged her to the window. She stepped on the window-ledge and jumped.
