Indie allowed a groan of discomfort to leave her lips as she turned onto her side, bumping into Tina who had fallen asleep next to her. Tina's eyes flew open as she landed on the floor next to the bed. Indie couldn't help but laugh as she crept to the edge and peaked over.

"Don't make that face at me," Tina groaned.

"Sorry," she giggled into the comforter.

Tina hummed, "Sure. I'm sure you mean that too."

"I do, I swear," Indie said with a big smile on her face as there was a knock on the door of their room. Both girls look towards it and Indie sat up while Tina got to her feet, yanking on her shirt.

"Were you expecting someone?" She asked.

"The only people that know I'm here are you, Daniel, Gwen and River," Indie told her and shrugged. Tina hummed and walked toward the door, resting her hands on the wood before leaning on her toes and peeking through the peep hole. "What? Who is it?" She asked when Tina didn't go for the handle.

"It's Harry," Tina told her.

"I'm not here," Indie scrambled to her feet and towards the closet, leaning into the wall to hide.

"Ind," she frowned.

"Please, T," Indie begged.

"Okay, fine," she sighed and fixed her hair quickly before unlocking the door and pulling it open. "Harry, hey. What are you doing here?"

Harry raised the duffle bag up, "Is she here?"

"Who?" Tina asked.

"You know exactly who I'm talking about," he groaned. "She left New York without me and when I got home, all her stuff was gone. Where else am I supposed to think she is?"

"Did you try Niall?" Tina asked, trying to cover the fact that Indie was only a few feet away from her.

"Tina, I know she's here. Her car is in the parking lot," he pushed his way in and Indie gasped to herself, struggling to get the door to the closet opened quietly and inside before he saw her. She pushed her way to the back, camouflaging herself among the clothes.

"You see? She's not here," Tina followed him into the room. "Harry, I don't know what to tell you."

"Where is she?" He asked and walked towards Indie's bed, grabbing the jacket she wore and turning towards Tina. "She was here. Tell me where she is. I just need to talk to her. I need to know what happened."

"She got spooked," Tina sighed and Indie leaned back into the wall, feeling her chest tighten. "Harry, everything just became all so real for her. Trust me when I say, it isn't you."

"That really doesn't make me feel any better," he sighed. "Look, if you see her. Would you just let her know I was here and that I just want to talk?"

"Sure," Tina nodded her head and watched him as he left the room, closing the door behind him. "He's gone," Tina sighed and leaned back on her hands. Indie didn't move instantly but took a second to herself, opening the door and walked out slowly. "You should talk to him. Yeah, you talk to us but that doesn't really do anything."

"I know," she sighed and fell back into the bed. "I need to go to the library. I am so behind on my work, it's insane."

"I'd come with you but I'm supposed to be meeting Clark for lunch."

"It's alright," Indie sat back up and moved to pull out some clothes. "We can meet up later or something, maybe?"

"Sure, invite River and Gwen to join us," Tina suggested as she got her own outfit together. "You'd be okay if I invited Daniel?"
