Amber was lying on the bed, her hands and feet tied. Jeremy was sitting on his office chair, watching her from a 安全, 安全です 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 発言しました 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 発言しました 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 ディナー soon”
“Yeah, thanks” Jeremy 発言しました and he sighed relieved as he heard Alaric going back downstairs. He looked at his bleeding hand. “You bit me” he 発言しました upset.
“She did what?”
Jeremy turned around and saw Kelsey at his window. He showed his hand.
“Damn it, Amber. あなた 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 あなた have the cure?” Jeremy asked, but Kelsey didn’t have to answer. Her face 発言しました it all. “I’m sorry, Am” she 発言しました hoarse.
“Ah, well… told あなた so” Amber said. Kelsey looked at Jeremy. “I know this is weird and in a way rude, but could あなた leave us alone for a moment?”
“Yeah, sure, I have to have ディナー anyway” Jeremy 発言しました soft. He got off the ベッド and walked outside of his room.
Kelsey walked to the ベッド and untied her sister.
“Thanks” Amber 発言しました grumpy, rubbing her wrists.
“How bad is it?” Kelsey referred to the bite. Amber rolled up her sleeve and showed her infected arm. “Okay, あなた can put it away now” Kelsey said, feeling a little sick.
“Kelsey” Amber 発言しました soft. “You promised me あなた would tell me what happened between あなた and our parents when I was ready for it. I don’t think I could be もっと見る ready”
Kelsey nodded. She was right. There was no better time. “Alright, but let’s get あなた outside. Fresh air will do あなた good”
She pulled Ambers arm over her shoulder and dragged her to the window. She stepped on the window-ledge and jumped.
