*****Camila's POV****

Dinah was resting her head in my lap, snoring softly. I was just scrolling through my tumblr, and then I got a text notification on my phone. I opened and gasped at what I saw. It was a picture of me and Dinah kissing at the airport, with the caption "Caminah's been caught". I looked to see who sent it, but it was an anonymous number.

"Who are you and where did you get this from?" "My name's not important, but I was there when she had you up against the wall. I saw so much passion that went into the kiss, she really loves you. It'd be a shame if this got out and ruined your lives, wouldn't it?" This guy was really pushing it.

"What do you want?" I asked. "$1,000,000, and then you're secrets are safe, all of you" he said. "Listen man, I'm famous, not rich. I don't have that kind of money". "You listen to me, Cabello. I will give you until the last show of your tour to agree to give me my money. Until you agree, I will release one of you and the girls dirty secrets each week, understand?" "You don't scare me". "Just wait, you will be".

I sat my phone down on the table, deciding not to keep talking to this guy. I was with Dinah now and things were going to start getting better, this guy was just exaggerating. "Mils?" Dinah called, nudging her head further into my stomach. "Yeah baby?" "Can you make me a sandwich? I'm really hungry" she whispered shyly. "Of course DJ, I'll be right back".

I got up and went to the bus's kitchen, making one of my famous Camwiches. As I was layering everything on the bread, I heard a voice call from behind me. "What are you doing Camz?" I heard Lauren say, making me jump. "Lo! You seriously need to announce your presence before saying something. I swear you walk out of the shadows like a ghost".

"Something's up with you Camz, like you know something I don't" she said as she walked up next to me. "You're crazy Lauren". "Am I?" she questioned, making me turn and look at her, which was my mistake. Her green eyes practically pierced into my soul. "Jesus Lo! I'll tell you" I said, running my fingers through my hair.

"I got a text, and this guy asked for $1,000,000 at the last show. He said if every week that I didn't agree to give him the money, he'd release a secret for one of us. He sent a pic with it, so I think he's serious" I said. "Let me go give Dinah her food and get my phone so I can show you". I went a gave Dinah her sandwich, kissed her head, and then grabbed my phone. "Where you goin?" Dinah asked. "I'll be back in a minute baby" I said, pecking her lips and then walking back into the living room area.

"Here Lo, read these" I said, and she just stared at my phone. "Damn" she said, and then continued with "Dinah used a lot of tongue, I see." "Lauren! Just read the text" I said while blushing furiously. "Wow Camz, we need to tell somebody. Remember what Demi said?" "If anything happens on this world tour, go straight to Alexandra. Any creepy letters or blackmail, those are serious. They should not be handeled lightly. Okay?"

I sighed and looked at the ground. "Listen Lo, I don't wanna risk all that money that we could use to take care of our families. that's too much to put on the line Lo". She gently put her hand on my shoulder??, "Okay, but if it gets worst we gotta tell someone. Alright?" I nodded, okay Lo. "Go get some rest Camz, we got another show tomorrow" she said, ruffling my hair. "Okay, say goodnight to Normani and Ally for me". "Okay, nite kid". "goodnight Lo" I said, going back to me and Dinah's room.

I walked in and saw her snoring lightly again, which she only did when she was exhausted. My poor girl had been through so much these past few weeks. I sat at the edge of the bed, moving the little strands of hair out of her face. I don't know how someone could be so evil to hurt someone as beautiful and kind as Dinah-Jane. you had to be one real sick bastard to cause this girl pain.

"Camila" she mumbled in her sleep. "L-let her go" she said with furrowed eyebrows. She started to roll around a little, whimpering. "You can't have her!" she yelled, starting to cry. I leaned across the bed and grabbed her shoulders, starting to shake her. "D, wake up baby" I said. I shook her harder, and then she screamed, her eyes shooting open. She started breathing heavily, and I knew she would pass out if I didn't stop her soon.

"Hey hey, look at me baby. No one else is here. Just you and me" I said, focusing in on her eyes. "That's good Dinah, just look at me" I said, grabbing her tightly gripped-hands from the sheets. "It's okay. You're okay" I said. Her rapid breathing slowed down, but she her tears still showed she was scared.

I gently pulled her into my arms as she cried. "Shush baby, it's okay. It was just a dream" I said. "B-b-but you were gone" she cried, holding me tighter. I chuckled softly and said, "That's ridiculous baby girl. I'm right here and not going anywhere, not for a long time". She kissed my neck, mumbling an "I love you" to me. "I love you too. And I'm not ever letting you go. I'm gonna be there for you, I promise you that".

The thought of losing her kills me, and knowing that I almost lost her twice hurts even more. One more mess up like that, and Dinah could......No! Don't think like that Camila. She's alive, she's here, and she's safe. That's all that matters. She's all that matters to me.

"Thanks Chancho" she mumbled into my chest. "For what?" "Staying up with me. Making me feel safe". I smiled and leaned down to press a kiss to her lips. "I got you baby girl, and I'd do anything to make you feel secure in every way. I live to cater to you" I said, kissing her forehead.

"Why don't we lay down and get some rest?" I suggested. "Will you cuddle with me?" She asked shyly. "Yes ma'am". I laid next to her, laying my head on her shoulder an wrapping my arms around her waist. We were about fall asleep, but then I heard a knock on the door.

I turned and opened my eyes to see ally at the door, her eyes red. "C'mere Allycat" I heard Dinah say, sitting up and opening her arms for ally. Ally got onto the bed and cried, hard. "What's wrong sweetheart?" I asked, rubbing her back. "I-I miss Troy so much" she said, starting to cry all over again.

"I know this long distance has got to be hard for you guys" Dinah said, running her fingers through her hair. "I wish I could just hear his voice here, and hug him. I want my little Ogletree" she whimpered. That night was filled with lots of crying and comforting, making it clear what we had to do.

We have to get Troy here.
