Chapter Ten

"This is harder than I thought." Danny said, teetering back and forth on his feet.

"What is?" Sam asked as she packed books into her locker.

"Trying to hide this from Mason."

"What's so hard about it?"

"I can't even hug you in front of him anymore, he's getting suspicious."

"Then hug me when he's not here, it's that simple." He scoffed before pulling her into a tight hug, only for a familiar voice to separate them.

"Jeeze, why do you guys have to hug every day?" Mason asked as he walked over to them. Sam scoffed.

"You're just jealous 'cause you have no one to hug." She said.

"Not true. I could hug Tucker, but I don't 'cause that would be weird." He said, making them both laugh. They laughed even harder when Mason turned around to see Tucker standing there with a confused look on his face.

"What did I just walk into?" He asked.

"You don't want to know." Danny said. They all headed down the hall way, heading to Lancer's class. Sam, Tucker and Danny walked into the class room first, and just as the bell rang, Mason walked in.

"That's another detention Mr. Aleks." Mr. Lancer said. Mason gave Sam, Danny and Tucker a look and they tried to stifle their laughter as they took their seats, but they didn't stay there for long. About half way through the class, the class phone rang, and Mr. Lancer walked over to it and answered it.

"Hello?" He glanced over at Sam and Mason who exchanged glances each other. "Yes... Right away." He hung up the phone and retreated back to the blackboard. "Ms. Manson and Mr. Aleks, go to the main office." He said.

"Uhhh, okay." Mason said, rather confused as he started to pack up his belongings. Danny gave Sam a concerned glance as she passed him and all she did was shrug, having no idea why they were being called to the main office. They exited the room, and just as they entered the hall way, Sam broke the silence.

"Whatever happens, I'm saying it's your fault." She said. He scoffed.

"That's great." He said sarcastically. They took the long walk down to the main office and Sam went in first, holding the door open for Mason, but just as they stepped in, they physically and mentally froze. None other than Braeden was standing there rather patiently for them. He still looked the same as when they last saw him; dark eyes, long, black hair and a misleading smile on his face. Mason was lucky he didn't look a thing like him.

"Your father is here to pick you up." One of the ladies at the counter told them. "Do you have everything you need?"

"We're fine. Thank you." Braeden answered for them. He grabbed them both by the shoulders and pushed them out the main office doors. As he took them outside, Mason nor Sam didn't know why their brains weren't cooperating with their bodies. No matter how hard they wanted to kick Braeden, nothing happened. When they finally got led to a familiar green Cherokee, that's when Mason snapped out of it and tried to take a swing at Braeden. Unfortunately for him, Braeden saw it coming, and not only dodged it, but punched Mason hard in the jaw then shoved him in the back of his car along with Sam.

"This is kidnapping! We're not in your custody any more." Mason said as Braeden got in the driver's seat.

"Well, it seems Pam has a horrible way of raising you, she has no discipline what so ever. So I'm taking you back." He said.

"You're a psychopath." Braeden raised a hand as if he were about to hit him, and Mason even flinched a little as he did, but the blow didn't come.

"Watch your rat mouth." He said as he started to pull away from the school.

"Where are you even taking us?"

"Back to my house."

"But that's forty minutes away,"

"Then do something to entertain yourself. ...Oh, and," He said, turning back towards them as he sat at a stop light, "give me your cell phones." Mason looked down at the ground before digging out his cell phone from his pocket. He looked over to see Sam doing the same thing. "Good." Braeden said, shoving the cell phones into his pocket.

As Braeden drove, Mason looked over at Sam, who looked terrified. He put an arm around her shoulders to signal to her that he was here, and that he wasn't going to let anything happen to her. But as they got closer and closer to the house, he knew it was going to be hard to keep that vow he made to her, just like before.

Shit just got real.
