I found my bathing suit and looked outside. Looks like it's a nice night for a night swim.
Grabbing my towel as I ran out I saw that it was only 8:00 and no one was around. I shrugged my shoulders and walked to the backyard. Slipping out of the house I let my lungs breath in the night air.
Once I saw the water I took of to it. I ran and dropped my towel jumping in.
The water was cold on my skin but nothing I wasn't used to. I closed my eyes as I swam under the water.
I came to the surface and let my body float as I kept my head above water. This was what I needed.
I felt two hands grab my waist and pull me under with out getting air. I screamed and started to kick and tried to get air. When the arms let go of me I went back up to the surface. Coughing I turned to see someone that I wished that I never did.
"Killian YOU DICK." I screamed hitting him. He had a smile on his face as he laughed.
"Welcome home Audrey." I felt a big slash of water hit me making me look to see my brother Carlos coming up.
"You let him into the house." I hissed looking to him. Killian and Carlos had been friends for ever.
"Hey don't be like that. I know you missed me." Killian said as he tried to get closer to me.
"Oh yeah I missed you Torturing me. You know I was having a nice time by myself then you two ruined it." I said splashing them.
"I'm sorry Aubrey. Killian thought you were drowning." Carlos gave me his dumb smile. The smile that said I totally wanted to mess with you.
"Whatever I'm leaving now." I swam to the edge of the pool and pulled myself out. I felt a set of eyes on me and I looked back to see that Killian was looking at me. Carlos was talking to him but was to clueless to see that he was looking at me.
It made me shiver the way that he was looking at me. I cleared my throat and grabbed my towel walking into the house.
"Hey Dad wants to see you" Thomas said walking outside.
"Why?" He Popped his head back in "I don't know I'm not Dad." I rolled my eyes at him and walked up the stairs. When I got to my room I got a quick shower and put a t-shirt on with shorts.
When I got to my dads door I knocked and he called me in
"You wanted to see me?"
"Yes I did. Come in." I walked in and closed the door.
"Did you see your mother?"
"Yes" I said softly.
"Good. She really needs everyone right now. Anyhow that's not what I brought you in here for. I wanted to talk to you about marriage."
My eyes got wide when he said that. Marriage? I'm only 18!
"You see for our family and the Bruno family have been working on a plan for the past few years. Both me and Kevin Bruno though it would be a good idea to bring our family's together and the only way to do that is for you to marry his son."
"What" I asked completely shocked.
"This will be good for us Audrey. We need the extra power. There's going to be a brunch tomorrow for you two to meet. I expect you to come."
"I've been gone for 5 years and this is how you Welcome me Home?" I questioned. Before he could say anything I turned and ran out of the room.
I bumped into someone running down the hallway and I almost fell but two arms held me.
"Hey y- are you crying?" I looked up to see Killian. Great just the person to see me cry.
I pushed him away from me and when I did he looked hurt.
"Yes. Go ahead make fun of me. It didn't stop you when we were kids why should it now."
"Audrey" a voice cut him off and I saw Marco come out of his room.
"What the hell." He said running to me. He grabbed Killian by the shirt and pushed him to a wall. I was surprised when he did because Killian was so much bigger and stronger then Marco.
"What did you do to her now." Marco hissed.
Killian pushed his arms off of him and fixed his shirt.
"It wasn't me" He hissed at Marco.
"Audrey. What is it?" Marco asked looking to me.
"I-it's Dad. He- he wants me to get married to Bruno's son." Marco pulled me to him.
"He said it's going to help us." I cried.
I heard footsteps walk away and I looked to see that Killian was walking away.
"Do you want to go down for dinner?" I shook my head no.
"I'm good. I'm still a little tired for my day so I think I'm just going to go to sleep."
"Ok well if you need me I'm here." Marco smiled and walked away.
