Tilly's heart felt like it was going to leap out of her chest onto the floor, a sweat broke out across her forehead and her body began to shake. What was she going to do? They were going to be caught and it all would be over. Her and Jen would be over. She was shouting at herself in her head. How bloody stupid am I, How could I be so careless! She had to try and get out of this. "Maddie I'm sure it was nothing, I didn't hear anything just leave it" She said quickly trying to stop her friend taking a step onto the stairs. "No Tills, I definitely heard something, someone is up there and I'm going to check it out!" Maddie replied carrying on up Tilly's stairs. She was walking slowly, maybe because of fear of who it could be. This was like torture for Tilly, she couldn't think of any excuses to get out of this, come on who could explain why their teacher was hiding away in their bedroom! She could feel her world crashing down around her, how Jen was going to be in so much trouble if this go out, there would be no going back and definitely no way to make it better. The thought of losing Jen now made her feel physically sick, she could practically feel the colour drain out of her face making her porcelain skin look ghostly. Tillys head began spin; it was all too much as Maddie reached the top of the stairs. Come on Tilly think of an excuse, make this go away, think, think! Nothing came in to her mind and it was already too late. Maddie slowly moved her hand towards Tillys Bedroom door knob twisting it before pushing it open quickly then taking a step backwards.
Tilly nearly threw up there and then. She closed her eyes tightly waiting for Maddie to ask a thousand questions to why their art teacher was stood in the room. Still her mind remained empty, there was really no way of getting out of this one, it was over she just had to accept it. "Phew" Maddie said sounding relieved. Tilly was puzzled; she opened one of her eyes hesitantly before opening the other. She looked around her bedroom, the window was wide open and the wind was blowing in roughly shaking the blinds, the bed was made and there wasn't any sign of Jen anywhere. No way has she jumped out of the window. Tilly thought really confused about where she had gone. The bed had been made and any trace of Jen was gone. Her clothes that were previously flung all over the floor weren't there; her bra was now not hanging off her chair, her underwear wasn't on the dresser, it was all gone. Wow she's quick! Tilly thought. However, the lamp was still laid on the floor by the window. Ahh I get it. "It was just the wind Tills knocking your lamp over, thank god for that eh, why have you got it open anyway in this weather?" Maddie laughed before turning for the door "Hurry up and get ready babe, I'll wait for you downstairs." As soon as Maddie was out of sight Tilly began her search for Jen. Where the hell had she got to?
Tilly paced around her bedroom, looking under the bed and in the wardrobes. She even looked out the window considering whether it would actually be possible to jump out of it without hurting yourself. No, you would definitely break a bone jumping from this height she thought. Tilly walked onto her landing when she heard a slight shuffle coming from her mum's room. She went in to investigate and there was Jen stood in the middle of the room, fully clothed now with bag in hand. She panicked as Jens look was serious. "I'm so sorry Jen I forgo..." Jen let out a laugh covering her mouth as she remembered Maddie was still here. Tilly looked at her a shocked expression on her face. "Tilly that was the most exciting thing ever! I know there was a lot hanging in the balance but I felt... ermm" "Naughty?" Tilly interrupted. "Yeah, we have got away with it haven't we?" Jen asked "Yeah Maddies sat downstairs, she seem suspicious she knows I'm hiding something but we got away with it, nice work with the window scenario by the way" Tilly smiled broadly at Jen. "I know it's the first thing that sprung into my head, I can be so clumsy at times but there was no way I could lose you now, I had to do something." "Well I'm glad you did babe, my mind went blank I actually thought I was going to faint as she opened that door, and when I seen the window I thought you bloody jumped!" Jen laughed at the red head stood wide eyed before her. "I'm sorry babe, I thought I'd come into your mums room as I didn't think Maddie would come in here". Tilly's eyes saddened "I'm so sorry Jen" "come here." Jen said as held Tilly tightly to her, Tillys head nuzzled into her neck as she ran her fingers through her red hair."Don't ever scare me like that again Tilly, I thought that it was all going to be over, my heart was breaking stood here watching, anticipating for the door to fly open! I'm sorry too for being so clumsy, we really do need to be careful now, we can't get caught so close to the end, I love you." Jen said softly. Tilly lifted her head to meet Jens gaze and placed a long meaningful kiss on her lover lips, "I love you too". Their moment was interrupted "Hurry up Tills what's taking you so long" Maddie called up the stairs. "Won't be long Mad's, give me five minutes. Come on Jen I need to get you out of here."
Tilly Quickly got dressed and made her way down the stairs with Jen following. "Wait there." Tilly instructed. She made her way into the living room to distract Maddie whilst Jen tried to quietly open the door. She forgot about how windy it was and it flung open hitting the coat stand and knocking it over. "Shit" Jen said in a whisper. "What was that Tills, your door just opened, who's here, I knew someone was here!" Tilly's stomach did a back flip and the sickly feeling came back. Maddie made her way to the door to see the back of Jen trying to quickly make her way to the end of the path. "Miss Gilmore, what the hell, Tilly please tell me you're not going there with that bitch again, she already hurt you once what are you thinking?" Jen stopped in her tracks and turned to face her students who were now both glaring at her.
