A Big Problem

Picture of Danielle Carlson----->

Elena's p o v:

My mind was doing somersaults. How did that guy know me? How did he know that I knew Nick? And he knew Danielle too? And he must have been really close to her too, because he called her Danny. Without wasting a second I rushed to my car and drove as fast as I could to the school, praying that Nick would be there, watching the game. As soon as I reached school, I jumped out of the car and jogged to the stands, searching through them hoping to find him. But to my dismay, he wasn't around.

"Elle, here", Andy called out from the top stairs, waving his hands frantically. Having no choice I moved towards him, "Did you run from the parlor to here, cause you seem pretty breathless.", he chuckled.

I gave him a fake smile, and  simply grabbed his coke and sipped it. After my breathing came back to normal I asked him, "Thanks, have you seen Nick by any chance?"

He took a second before he replied, "Yeah, he was here a little while ago. I think he just left with Amy."

I felt my heart twitch a little in pain, but I ignored it, because I had an important task at hand, so I nodded."Which way did they go?"

He showed me the direction, I stood up, "I'll join you in a while, Andy, thanks", returning him his coke.

With that I got down the stairs and started moving in the direction of the boys locker room. As soon as I reached there, I heard a little moaning. My heart was shredded to pieces on hearing what was most probably Amy's voice. All I wanted to do was turn around and walk or rather run away as far as possible.  Just when I was about to do the same, the door burst open, hitting me on my forehead. I felt a throbbing pain which doubled when I saw a flustered Amy and a smirking Nick. But on seeing me, his smirk fell and a little concern appeared on his face.

"Are you ok, Lena?"       

I was bowled over by the pure concern in his eyes. Somehow, every time I looked into his eyes, I felt like I was the only one he liked and cared, I felt like I was the only one in his world. I shook my head to bring myself out of my trance. 

"Nick, I need to talk to you. And it's urgent.", I said. He probably sensed the seriousness in my voice.

"Ok", Nick replied, looking at me doubtfully.

"In private."

"Carr, common let's get something to eat", Amy butted in, tugging Nick in the other direction. I rolled my eyes.

Carr? Seriously? His name was pretty short already, it definitely didn't need a nick name.  Whatever. Elle, you have an important task at hand. Don't forget it.

"Nick, I need you to come with me.", I caught hold of his hand, and dragged him out of the school, into the parking lot, inside my car.

"What's wrong, Lena?"

"Where should I begin?", I handed him the note.

"What's this?"

"Read it"

"I know where Danny is.", he shrieked, "Who gave you this?"

"A customer, greyish-green eyes and golden brown hair.", I replied. I could feel him getting tensed.

"This can't be happening", his voice quivering, I couldn't believe that Nick feared somebody so much. "What else did he say?"

"Nothing much."

"Lena, I need you to tell me whatever he said, word by word", he ordered me.

"Okay", I tried recollecting the dialogues, "He somehow knew my name"
