------------NALA'S P.O.V------------

We were now in the car, heading to the closest farmers market. On the way there, Brooke kept telling me about how she has been seeing this hot guy with the perfect blue eyes. Honestly, I wasn't paying attention, I was too busy thinking of the past 3 days.

"Nala?" Brooke said hitting my arm.

"What?" I asked, looking out the window.

"Have you been listening to anything i've said?" She asked loudly?

"No, sorry" I said.

She sighed as we stopped in a red light. We were in the last row from the right when a car caught my eye. I looked at it for a few seconds when someone got out of the car and stood there, looking at me. My heart suddenly starded beating fast. My eyes focused on the car and the person when I noticed a familiar afro. It was Bruno. His lip was cut and he had bruises in his forhead. My heart sank. Just as I was going to speak, the light went green.

"Oh my gosh." Was all I could say.

"What?" Brooke asked, not bothering to look at me.

"It was Bruno. It was him." I said as I starded getting a panick attack.

"What?" She asked, her voice changing into a worried tone.

"The car! When we stopped! It was his and he looked at me and he's hurt and..." I said, not being able to finish my sentence.

She parked the car and looked at me straight in the eyes.

"Calm down." She said. "Calm down, breathe." She said louder, sounding like my mother. "Are you sure it was him?" She asked.

"Yes. It was him" I said as my breathing starded coming back to normal.

She thought for a moment, confusion clear in her face.

"Okay. Do you want to go back home?" She asked.

"No... It's fine. You need the stuff." I said resting my head on the seat.

"I'm worried about you." She said as she turned the car again.

"So am I." I said.

-----------BRUNO'S P.O.V------------

2 days. 2 damn days since Nala left. After she ran away from me, I looked for her for hours but didn't find any trace of her. I stopped by her house yesterday but she wasn't there. After not finding her, I went to a bar and got drunk. I don't remember much but what I do remember is someone calling me criminal and then I blacked out. Today, I woke up in the couch and my lip tasted like blood. I stood up and noticed Phillip watching tv next to me.

"What the hell happened?" I asked.

As I turned to look at Phillip, a massive pain took over my head and I was forced to lay back down.

"Here." Phillip said throwing me some pills.

"Thanks." I mumbled, swallowing them.

I stood up again and looked at him. "What happened?" I asked again.

"I went to the bar to look for you after you dissapeared all f****** day and I found you fighting with another dude. I somehow managed to separate the both of you and once I got you in my car you fell asleep. You're lucky I put you in the couch and didn't leave you in the car." He said standing up and walking to the kitchen.

I followed him, stopping a few times to stop the sensation of the whole room spinning.

"Have you heard of Nala?" I asked, sitting down in one of the stools.

"If your talking about that chick you brought a couple days ago then no." He said drinking a glass of water. "Why do you care so much about her anyway? She's like every other girl we've met." He said pouring himself more water.

"She's different. She needs someone to protect her." I said grabbing his cup and drinking the water that was left.

"And why does she need protection?" He asked.

"She just does. I don't want any guy messing around with her." I said sliding his cup on top of the table.

"Whatever, anyway, get showered, I need you to take me somewhere." He said, patting me in the back.

"I'm not your chauffeur." I said standing up and walking up stairs.

"C'mon Peter, lighten up." He said, following me.

"Don't call me that." I said.

I got to the bathroom and immediatly starded showering. I finished showering and I wraped the white towel around my waist, exposing everything else. I made my way to my room and Phillip sneaked behind me and took my towel off.

"Phillip!" I yelled as I wraped the towel around my waist again.

Phillip just laughed as we both went in. I quickly got changed, choosing to wear some jeans, a leather jacket and a black shirt.

"Ready?" Phillip asked.

"Let's get this over with." I said, leaving my room.

We drove for around 10 minutes when Phillip told me to stop. I parked the car infront of a gun shop and sighed.

"Come with?" He said, opening the door.

"No thank you." I said taking of my seat belt and leaning against the seat.

"Alright" he said and got out.

I closed my eyes and waited for Phillip to get back. As sleep starded taking over me, I heard someone yelling something.


I opened my eyes and turned towards the store. Phillip was in the door, signaling me to go over there. I got my keys and opened the door when I felt someone look at me. I looked infront of me and there was a car there with two girls. The girl in the window close to me was looking back at me. I looked closely and suddenly I felt my eyes widened. My palms starded sweating and my heart was beating extremely fast. Nala. Then, in a blink of an eye, she was gone.
