Chapter 7: I Ran Away from the Car and Met "Them"

Well as soon as I saw the house, I sat there stunned. Then I immediately opened the door and jumped out. I have not a clue why, but my gut told me to, and like in all the good books, you always follow your gut! And then get your butt handed to you. I kept running towards way we had come. I saw the group, which sat there stunned for a moment and then turned the car around and started driving for me. I ran as fast as my 12 year old legs could carry me. I saw these bushes and squat behind them. They drove past my hiding spot and I walked out. Panting, I walked towards a gas station. And then remembered I was "famous" now and turned back to my hiding spot.

I hid under the bushes again as I saw the car come back. As they passed me, I didn't feel exactly...

Alone.

"Who's there?" I called out. I was scared if it was someone from C&C.

I heard some whispering, two people I think.

"I can hear you, so you know!" I yelled.

"It's all your fault Kale!" A girl whispered sharply.

"Me? I wasn't the one asking who was prettier!" A boy argued back.

"You've blown your cover entirely. Just come down here and fight me like... Like a girl and two strangers!" I said, really worried about these people.

I heard a rustle in the trees above and a boy and a girl came down.

The girl had a cheesy smile plastered on her face, while the boy had more of a genuine, trusting smile. They looked around 16-ish.

"Hi, I'm Nicole Elaine. Pleasure to meet you, Natalie." Nicole said while stretching out a hand.

I shook it, with an uncertain look on my face.

"How do you know my name?" I asked.

"You know people talk, I listen, and you know, the fact we were kidnapped together. Kale." Kale answered nonchalantly.

Nicole had big brown eyes, dark brown skin, though they were rather serious, and long black hair. Kale had smaller brown eyes, dark brown skin, and short cropped black hair. There was something familiar about the two, but I just couldn't put my finger on it.

I looked at the street, and saw the car coming close.

"Okay, nice to meet you both, but we need to be moving if we plan to have a private talk, if not, my group is right there and we can all have a group therapy session at my former place." I said, getting more nervous as I saw Shannen point at me through the window.

Kale looked at Nicole, and she gave a swift nod.

"Up to you, either way, we're going to talk. Whether it be in your home, or in that tree." Nicole answered.

I thought it over for a second.

"Group therapy it is." I decided.

We all ran towards the car, and I was actually thankful I had followed my gut.
