"Cece, let me in!"

Rocky Blue banged on the window, waiting impatiently for her best friend.

After a few minutes, she gave up hope. How could she not hear her? She decided she'd take the long way and knock on Cece's door.

In Cece's room, she read a magazine, Ty Blue's arm around her shoulders. He was texting his friends, planning to meet up later. "I feel bad." Cece said, closing the magazine, and putting her head on Ty's shoulder.

"Why?" He asked, rubbing her shoulder.

"No girl hides secrets from her best friend! Especially when that secret is that you're dating her BROTHER!" Ty nodded. She's got a point.

"I don't like this anymore than you do. But if we tell Rocky she'll freak out."


"Cece let me in!" Rocky shouted.

Cece stared at Ty helplessly. "Go, go, go!" She said. Ty gave her a kiss on the forehead and climbed out her window.

Just as Rocky opened the door to Cece's bedroom, Cece closed the window.

"What are you doing?" Rocky asked suspiciously.

"Um…shooing away the one eyed pigeon you hate?" Cece smiled innocently.

Rocky shrugged. "C'mon we're going to be late for rehearsals!"

After three hours, they were finally done. Exhausted and a bit sweaty, Cece walked over to the mirror, pulling her red curly hair into a ponytail.

Hands covered her eyes and a voice asked, "Guess who?" Cece paused and replied, "Gary?" Ty dropped his hands. "Gary?" Cece turned around and smiled. "I was just messing with you." Going to kiss him, Cece stood on her tiptoes, then Rocky came.

"What are you two doing?"

Clumsily, Cece landed back on her heels and her hip crashed into the chair. "Ouch!" She exclaimed.

Ty instinctively put an arm around her shoulders, and rubbed her hip.

"You two look like you're-" Rocky never got to finish as Gary said. "Great work everyone! We'll be closing up in five minutes."

Cece smiled and ran to get her bag.

"Are you ok?" Rocky asked her brother, staring at him. "Yeah, why wouldn't I be?" He asked but then Cece came and Rocky dropped her act. "Let's go eat, I'm starving!" She said, her hair bouncing behind her as she skipped to the doors.

With a gleam in his eyes, Ty followed, along with a smile, Rocky noticed.

That night, Rocky was visiting her Aunt for the weekend and left. Ty climbed through the window and closed it, startling Cece.
"Ty? What are you doing here? I thought you were visiting your Aunt."
Ty shook his head. "
She only wants to see Rocky. Last time I came, well, let's just say her living room got turned upside down." Cece shook her head, pulling popcorn out of the microwave. "Well, my mom's working late tonight. Want to watch a movie?"

Ty nodded and smiled, pulling out a DVD from behind him. "My exact thoughts."

Twenty minutes later, the popcorn was gone, nothing left but crumbs.

Cece whimpered, hugging Ty. "Don't go in there, don't go in there! Aw, you went in there!" Cece shouted then quickly clenched Ty's shirt, as a masked man appeared.

Thirty minutes later, Cece had her hands over her eyes. "Please spare her. Just her. Please please-AHHHHH!" Cece screeched as the masked man, once again, put his knife to use.

Fifty minutes later, Cece was hugging Ty. Screams came from the TV as everyone had their last chance to survive. Cece barely gave the TV a second look.

Sixty minutes later, tears formed in Cece's eyes. Tears ran down her cheeks as the masked man began to-the TV got shut off. "Hey, Cece, I'm sorry you had to see that." Ty felt bad. He had a feeling she would be scared and hug him, but he didn't know she would get scared that much.

Cece sniffled and nodded. "Walk me to the bathroom?" Ty nodded, smiling, and took her hand, taking her to the bathroom.
