Chapter 1: Meeting Him

Anna ran down the long and narrow alley. She snuck out from her parent's house for a party and she was now taking a shortcut down Riverview Alley. Her parents had always told her to keep out of alleys at night for bad people wait in there. She ignored her parent's wishes and went down it anyway. Anna was a beautiful high school senior with brown hair, blue eyes and a smile to dies for. She knew her risk of someone waiting in the alley for her would be great since she was so beautiful and popular. As she walked down Riverview Alley a strange figure jumped out from behind a trash can.

"You are very beautiful." He said approaching her.

"Stay away!" She said and started to back up.

"Not so fast!" He ran and grabbed her and shoved her up into the wall.

"Help me! Someone please help me!" She yelled.

"Shut up!" The man put her hand over her mouth. She was kicking trying to make him let go, she was defenseless. No one will hear me. No one can hear me cry out. She thought and tears came down her eyes. When suddenly a guy came running down the alley.

"Let her go!" He yelled and knocked the guy over. She could now she just who knocked him off of her. He was tall, about six foot, and he had pitch black hair. He had both of his ears pierced and an eyebrow piercing. She could not see what color his eyes where. She backed up a few feet and watched. The rescuer was over top the guy pinning him down.

"I suggest you run away before things get ugly." The guy said in a dark voice.

"Make me, that girl is... what?" They guy turned his eyes red.

"Okay, okay, you win!" He let go and the guy trying to get Anna ran off.

"Hey, thanks for saving me." She walked toward him.

"No problem." He said.

"My name is Anna." She said smiling. Her smile warmed his heart.

"It's a pleasure to meet you Anna mine is Jake. How about we get out of this alley and walk?" Jake suggested.

"Okay, I think I'll take the long way home." They walked out of the alley.

"So, why were you out so late?" Jake asked putting his hands in his coat.

"Well, I snuck out to go to a party and decided to take the shortcut through the alley and then that guy came and pinned me to the wall."

"Oh, I see." He smiled.

"So, how old are you Jake?"

"I'm um... 19."

"That's cool, I'm 18." She looked at his eyes. They were sky blue and so beautiful. They were almost at her house.

"Well, I had better be going." Jake said.

"Wait, can we stay in touch? I'm really glad that you saved me.

"Um sure do you want my address, I don't live far from here." He said.

"Well, I was wondering if I could have your phone number." She smiled.

"Oh um yeah sure." He grabbed an ink pen from his pocket and scribbled it down on a piece of paper and he put his address.

"Thank you!"

"You're welcome see you later!" He ran off. She slipped his information in her pocket and her heart fluttered. He is so awesome! She thought. Oh no, I see my parents outside. I'm doomed. She slowly walked up into the yard.

"Just what do you think you were doing?!?!" Her mother asked.

"We were worried sick!" Her father said.

"I went to a friend's house." She said lying.

"Until two in the morning! Anna what were you really doing?" Her mother said coming closer to her.

"I went to my friend's house honest!" She said getting mad.

"I don't care, go straight to your room, you are grounded." Her father said.

"Grounded but why?"

"No buts, no march!" Her mom said. She went inside the house, took off her coat, and went to her room. Screw parents, they don't even know what they are talking about; she thought and flopped on her bed. She took out Jake's number and address and looked at it. I cannot wait to talk to you again. She thought and fell asleep. Little did she know of Jake's deep, dark secret...
