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

Confusion. That was what I was feeling. I couldn't even look at Bruno without wondering who he really was. What he really was. Then there is Phillip who is a bigger stranger to me than Bruno, not that it matters.

I walked away from Bruno, not knowing where I was going. I wanted to get away for a minute after having to change my whole look for who knows why and after hearing the painful truth of Bruno and Phillip but Bruno stopped me.

"Nala wait!" He said as he grabbed my arm and spun me around, my face inches away from his. What happened?"

"Who are you Bruno?" I yelled as I pushed him away.

He stepped back, releasing my arm. He had a confused look on his face but his eyes showed fear.

"What... What are you talking about?" He asked in a quiet voice.

"Bruno you're always running away, i hardly know anything about you and to make things worse you almost killed Drew! Who are you?!" I asked loudly as my heartbeat increased.

He looked at me as if he had never seen me before. He rubbed the back of his neck, a nervous habit of his.

"I need to know."

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

Why. How? What. She knows... But how? This can't be. The last thing I wanted was for her to find out about me and Phillip. She couldn't know about our criminal record or else she would call the police or worse... She would leave me.

"I need to know."

No. You don't. She can't know. I could not risk loosing her. I could not tell her the truth, but I didn't need to once Phillip came running towards us.


Nala and me looked at Phillip. Phillip was running towards us. His eyes looked scarred and his knuckles were bloody. Whatever was happening was not good.

"What's going on?" Nala asked as fear started taking over her blue eyes.

I stayed silent. I honestly didn't know what was happening, that is until I saw the cop car following Phillip. They found us.

"RUN!" Phillip kept yelling as he got closer to us.

I stepped back and took Nala's arm, not bothering to think if I had hurt her or not.

"What is going on!" She pulled back her arm, causing me to release her. "I am not going anywhere until you guys tell me what's going on!"

The cop car was now only a few feet away from us and they were already demanding us to stop. I wanted to run, I wanted to shoot them but I felt like I couldn't move. Then there was Nala who was demanding an explanation and while I had to give her one, that was the last thing I wanted to do.

"BRUNO MOVE!" Phillip was now running away from us while Nala stood there with fear and confusion.

"Nala. I'll promise you i'll explain everything! But not right now! We have to go!" I said and with that, I pulled her arm and the three of us started running away from the police.

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

Sirens where heard all over the place as Bruno, Phillip and I ran for our lives. I felt as my heart would burst any minute and the worst part was that I didn't even know why we were running away. I would try to catch my breath but each time I would stop, Bruno would pull me closer to him.

I told you you'd be in danger if you stayed with them.

My mind starting to talk to me. My lungs were burning and it seemed like little to no air came through my nose. Suddenly, I remembered the sickness I had gotten at an early age and that had never left. Asthma. My asthma was taking over and if I did not stop running soon, I would get an asthma attack, which was the last thing I wanted. As if Bruno and Phillip read my mind, they stopped.

"Quick! In there!" Bruno said as he pointed to a abondoned store.

We all ran towards dusty store where we closed the door and prayed that the police had not seen us. Lucky for us, the cop car kept driving and the sirens soon were no longer heard. We all let out a breathe, thinking we were safe but then a new danger appeared. I could no longer breathe and my heart beat increased to the point where I felt a heart attack coming. I leaned against the wall, trying to ask for help but it was no use. My body fell on the floor and the only sound heard was my body begging for oxygen.

Haaaiii! Thank you for 3.71k! You guys have no idea how grateful and thankful I am! Honestly! I feel like I won ms.universe!
