Seems like it was yesterday when I saw your face
you told me how proud you were but I walked away
If only I knew what I know today

Lucas and Cassie sat silently in the caravan park living room. Cassie was slowly running her necklace along her neck as Luc sat and played with his hands.

"Luc! This isn't going to work!" Cassie said eventually "I mean, come on. Johnny is smart and cunning he's used to doing things like this. How are we supposed to out smart a guy who can get away with murder?!"

"Cassie we can! He must have slipped up somewhere! We need something that can prove that Ric's innocent, anything!"

"If the police couldn't find anything what chance do we have?! Ric's in there with someone who wants nothing more than to see him dead, Mattie is barely hanging on. It's a mess." She finished sitting back down finally letting tears out.

"Cas" he stated sitting down beside her, putting his arm around her.

"I just hate seeing Mattie be so alone. She doesn't want to talk, she barely eats and I can't help her. What kind of best friend does that make me?" she cried

"A great one for even trying. Cas, I know that it's going to be hard and it might not even be worth it, but couldn't we give it a try? Mattie needs time to adjust."

"I'm just so scared, Luc. What if Johnny does something to him?"

"That's it! We scare Johnny, make him think that whoever killed Rocco is going to go to the cops!" he said quickly standing up.

I would hold you in my arms
I would take the pain away
Thank you for all you've done
Forgive all your mistakes
There's nothing I wouldn't do
To hear your voice again
Sometimes I want to call you but I know you won't be there

"Hey bubba!" Tony said as Mattie walked into the kitchen.

"Hey, do we have any chocolate?" she asked

"Do you not want lunch first? There are nice rolls there."

"I had lunch" she answered brightly

"Mattie, please have some lunch. I'm worried about you."

"Tony, I'm fin….." she stopped

"No you're not. You don't eat, you barely sleep. I just want you to be able to talk to me."

"What's the point? Ric's in prison because of me" she replied walking away.

"Mattie! This isn't you're fault! Come one, sit down and we can talk"

"Shut up! Stop telling me what to do you're not my dad and you never will be!" she screamed before running out the house leaving Tony standing there hurt and shocked.

I'm sorry for blaming you for everything I just couldn't do
And I've hurt myself by hurting you
Some days I feel broke inside but I won't admit
Sometimes I just want to hide 'cause it's you I miss
You know it's so hard to say goodbye when it comes to this

Johnny Cooper sat in the cold and bland visiting room playing with the bracelet around his wrist. He looked up when the door slammed shut.

"You're late!" he stated as the man in front of him sat down.

"Sorry mate had to get out without anyone noticing. What's this plan?" the man asked

"I need a favour. I've got this end of things but you owe me one. After all you're the reason I'm here." Johnny hissed

"Come on, I don't have that long!" the man hissed back

"You know Matilda Hunter? Small, blonde, about 17?" he questioned

"Yeah course I do."

"I need you to bring her to me."

"You're in prison. She isn't exactly going to come here, is she?" the man whispered

"Here's the address. Do what you have to….. Ashton" Johnny exclaimed

-x-

Would you tell me I was wrong?
Would you help me understand?
Are you looking down upon me?
Are you proud of who I am?
There's nothing I wouldn't do
To have just one more chance
To look into your eyes and see you looking back

-x-

Mattie fell on her knees, her hands covering her eyes, sobbing. She was ashamed at herself for what she had said, was that how she really felt? Tony had been there for her through everything… Mum dying, Ric going to jail, everything but how could she have said that to him?

She took a deep breath and looked up to see a medium sized male standing above her.

"Are you okay, Mattie?" He questioned as she shook her head and began crying again as he put his arm around her.

"Do you want me to take you home?" he asked helping her up and slowly pulling something out from his pocket, he felt the cold needle in his hand and let it slide down his hand until he had proper grip of it.

"Thanks Ash" she whispered

-x-

I'm sorry for blaming you for everything I just couldn't do
And I've hurt myself
If I had just one more day, I would tell you how much that
I've missed you since you've been away

Tony powered down to the beach looking for her. So many things were going through his head but he had to find her, but she could be anywhere he had checked all the places he could thing of, recruiting many to help him. He quickly pulled out his mobile, punched in her number and then heard her ring tone.

He moved to where the sound was, discovering her mobile lying on the beach slowly picking it up he looked at it, why would she leave her mobile on the beach?

Then he saw it, the discarded medicine bottle on the sand, the type that the doctors take the liquid out with syringes.

Frantically looking round for any sign of her he screamed "Mattie!"

-x-

Oh, it's dangerous
It's so out of line to try to turn back time
I'm sorry for blaming you for everything I just couldn't do
And I've hurt myself
By hurting you

"H'es going to pay and you princess are at high price"
