(Gabbie's POV)

I run to my bike as my tears start to run out my eyes, I quickly wipe them as I ride off. I hear the front door open behind me, probably someone wanting to stop me but I ride off anyway.

As I ride down the path I think of what happened when I saw Will


"Gabbie" an scared and stressed Will asks me as he stands in the door of castle Byers. Spores of some kind float in the air as I look at my lost brother. I waste no time in running up to him and hugging him. He hugs me back as I cry onto him.

"You're alive, I can't believe you're alive" I say to him as I look at him. He smiles at me as he hugs me again.

"I've been so lonely Gabbie" he cry's into me. I hold him tight.

"It's okay Willy, I'm here now" I say into him.

"Gabbie it's not safe, we need to run, it's after me" Will says as he looks out the door of castle Byers "we need to go now" he says as he takes my hand and drags me out the castle.

"What's After us Will?" I question him as I look around and there in the distance, between two large trees, a long figure stood. The rounded head and the long arms. It was the monster I saw the night Will disappeared.

"What is that?" I say as I stand still and look at it, it starts to walk towards us, taking long strides.

"Gabbie, we need to go" Will says as he drags me and we both start to run.

As we pick up speed I end up in front, I've always been faster so Will was a bit behind me.

"Hurry up Will" I yell to him, trying to pull him so he could go faster. Since I'm not looking where I'm going I trip on a rock and fall to the ground. I hit my head on a rock and I already feel the blood rushing out.

Before I black I hear Will yelling to me "Gabbie don't leave" then I fall to the ground.

End of flashback:

I shake my head my head as the tears fall to the ground as I continue to ride to Mikes house.

I'm so stupid for being mad at them, and being mad at El, Will is alive, I know it. I just need to find him. I'm not going to lose him again.

I soon make it to Mikes house, I drop my bike around the back and open the door to the basement.

I walk inside as Mike stares at the door.

"Oh my god Gabbie" Mike says as he gets up and runs over to me and hugs me. I hug him back, I need to tell him Will is alive, that we need to find him, but I am enjoying this for a moment.

Mike steps back and looks at me "Gabbie I need to tell you something that El showed me" Mike says as he takes my hand

"No Mike, I need to tell you something" I say to him, he stares at me.

I breathe in and out "Will's not dead" I say slowly to him. He looks at me and has a slight smile.

"I know, El was playing with my Viscom Just then and it was Will, he was singing that song you guys always sing" he says to me, I feel better that someone else knows.

I hug him "thank god you know, everyone else thinks his dead, it's breaking my heart" I say to him

"But Gabs, how did you find out?" He questions me. I start to feel the tears again as I sit down next to el and Mike sits next to me.

Before I tell the story I look over to El who's staring at me, I feel so bad for yelling at her.

"Look El, I'm sorry I yelled at you, I was angry and mad and sad over thinking Will was dead, but I know you can't really explain things so I forgive you" I say as I put out my arms for a hug "friends?" She stares at me confused. I slowly come into her and rap my arms around her, she stiffens up but then relaxes as she hugs me back. I let go of the hug and look at her and smile, she looks back to me and smiles back.

"Friend" she says as smiles.

After that I proceed to tell Mike and El about what happened in that place, I'm now calling the Upside down. Everything that happened with Will and the monster. After my story I was in tears again just thinking about leaving Will in that place. Mike says goodnight to El and takes me upstairs. We get to his room and I'm still crying, he holds me in his arms.

He's hugged me a lot today, and it's been nice. He's always been there for me, and I be there for him. This is why I love him.

Wait, did I just say that?

Do I love Mike Wheeler?

I rest my head on his shoulder as he rests his chin on my shoulder. We stand there in silence.

After a few seconds of silence and steps out of the hug and looks at me, he wipes away stray tears from my face as I look to the ground, then holds my cheek making me look at him. We stare into each other's eyes and I know in this moment that this is moment I've been waiting for. I slowly place my hand on his cheek and look at him, hoping he would take the hint.

He soon gets closer to my lips, I couldn't take it any more and I close the distance between us, in a short but sweet kiss.

I break away still holding his cheek and look at him, he has a big smile on his face, I smile back at him.

"I Uh, uh I" He try's to speak, but I cut him off.

"Mike, I like you, I've liked you for a long time"

He looks at me with his smile "I've liked you too for a long time as well" he says to me as and I smile back at him.

"Well good, I'm tried and I don't want to sleep alone" I say to him, he nods as we both get changed in our pjs and get in his bed. I soon fall asleep in Mikes arm feeling like the luckiest person in the world.

I don't know I feel about this chapter, the middle bit of it is ehhhhhhh. I think it's pretty shit. But the kiss I like. Everything else is not that great, sorry.
