His arms wrapped tightly around me, making it hard to breath. I loved him so much I didn't care if it hurt.
"Chloe!" Tori's voice jolted me from my trance. I had been so into my book I didn't realize everyone was staring at me. I looked up and looked down quickly, a blush tingling on my cheeks and neck. I moved my hand up and scratched the back of my head.
"Uh.. yes?" I said quietly and slowly looking up a bit. Simon burst out laughing and he walked over to me.
"Chloe, Chloe, Chloe! What are we going to do with you?!" he smiled gently down at me and taking my hand. I blushed again and slid over so that Simon could sit with me.
Simon and I have been dating for a month, and because we are safe for the moment from the Edison Group, we have been able to relax a bit and even go on a couple dates. Simon is a great guy.. It's just that I can't entirely relax around him.. It must be because he's my first boyfriend.. Or at least, that's what I tell myself.
"Chloe and lover boy! Come back down from cloud nine!" Tori exclaimed, she was trying to sound annoyed, but it came out playful, matching the smile on her face. The complete opposite of Derek.. He seemed to be more upset then usual.
Why am I so upset?! I don't get it. Simon's happy, I should be happy too! But all I can think is "Simon get your filthy hands of my Chloe!" 'My'?! Chloe is not mine..
"..thinking of ordering Chinese food, right Derek? Derek? DEREK!" Andrew's voice rang through my head, interrupting my thoughts.
"Uh.. Yea Chinese food." I stuttered out stupidly. Simon chuckled and Chloe smiled confusedly at me. Tori just plain out stared at me.
"What the hell is wrong with you Wolf Boy?" Chloe suddenly jumped out of her seat and ran over to me. Simon jumped up after her, but stopped when he saw her walking in my direction. He slumped back down dejectedly. Chloe's small hands wrapped around one of mine and my heart jumped. She looked up at me, worry clouding her eyes. She started tugging me out of the room and I glanced back in time to see Simon glaring at me. I looked away, and followed Chloe.
"Chloe!" I hissed out as she moved her hands to my forehead and cheeks, and finally the back of my neck. When she looked at my eyes I realized she wasn't just touching me like I had thought, she was checking if I had a fever. She thought I was going to change.
"Chloe I'm not.." I stopped myself, this was my chance, I could take her out to the woods behind the house, pretending I was going to change and then confess my feelings. Wait? I had feelings?! For Chloe?! No, no, no! This is wrong, I can't like Chloe! But.. I do..
"Derek? Derek are you listening to me?" I tuned back in when Chloe's voice started up again, she was done checking.
"Sorry, what was that Chloe?" I said, guilt dripping into my voice as I realized she hadn't just started talking, I had been zoned out and missed most of what she had said. Chloe sighed.
"I said, are you changing soon? You seem off and a bit warm.." her voice drifted off, leaving an empty silence in the air. I decided I would take the opportunity.
"Yea, I think it's going to happen tonight Chloe.. I'll come get you.. I promise." Chloe smiled as I answered her un-asked question.
I heard a tap on my window; I opened the blinds and looked down. Derek sat, waiting on the roof, half a meter below. I looked down at him, my expression clearly stating that he was crazy. He chuckled.
"Come on Chloe, I'll help you out" He smiled at me and held out his hand. I stared at it suspiciously and then laughed.
"I'm going to need more than a hand Derek!" I exclaimed at him. He laughed and held his arms out to me, I swung my legs out the window and held my hands out to him. He completely caught me off guard when instead of taking my hands, he moved his big hands to my hips, and pulled me down into his arms. I blushed and pulled out of his arms gently, he looked away and I looked down.
"So.. Einstein, how do you plan on getting down from here?" I said accusingly, but with a smile on my face. I moved closer to the edge, and started teetering on the edge, playing around a bit. Derek laughed shakily and scratched his head.
"Chloe!" Simon's voice shocked me and my teetering turned into falling as I jumped back in shock. A scream erupted from my lungs as Derek leaped forwards to grab me, he missed by a centimetre and I fell, the drop was far and I was terrified. Suddenly, I saw another body falling off the edge and reaching for me, Derek. His strong arms wrapped around my small body, protecting me from the ground. We landed and I was safely caged in his arms, barely jostled. We lay there, I was too shocked to check Derek for injuries, but when Simon's voice came ripping through the air, my shock ended and I pried Derek's arms from around me and rolled him over.
"Derek? Derek are you alright? Please be alright please!" tears stung at my eyes as Derek's mouth dropped open and his eyes squeezed tighter for a millisecond before he opened them as well. Simon rushed over to us and pulled me into a hug, instead of hugging him back, I twisted in his arms to look at Derek, not convinced he was okay. Derek stood up, cracked his back and glared down at Simon.
"What the hell were you thinking you idiot. Yelling at Chloe like that, she could have died you know!" He turned away and stomped into the forest, I struggled in Simon's arms and finally he let me go, I looked at him for a second before chasing after Derek.
"Derek you know Simon was just worried, he didn't mean to scare me so much! Please don't be mad at him, I'm fine, we both are! Please Derek Do—'' My voice was cut off as I was pushed against a tree.
"Why the hell do you care about me. Before you came along Simon and I got along fine. We're fighting now only because of you. Leave me the hell alone." Derek spat out at me before turning away and jogging into the forest, I slumped to the ground and pulled my legs to my chest. Tears started flowing down my cheeks.

Hey guys, a lot of you have commented that you've read this before, if you have it's because I posted it on my deviantart account a couple years ago. If you had bothered to read the note I put after this chapter (where chapter 2 would normally be) you would know that wouldn't you? :/
Thanks for reading.
