Someone opened the door and I saw Daniel. He looked so amazed and his mouth was open in disbelief. 

"Br-Brooklyn?" 

"Daniel!" I giggled and then jumped into his arms. 

"Hi!" He laughed and hugged me back, "Guys! Look who's here!"

First came Jonah. His expression was priceless. I don't know if he looked happy, surprised, or confused, but it was priceless. Then came Jack. He was so excited and immediately knew that it was me. Next came Corbyn. He came, and just like Jack, he was excited. He immediately came over and kneeled down on one foot. 

"Milady," Corbyn said and I excused him to stand up. We then went into a group hug. 

"Wait...Where's Zach?" I asked.

"He's...um...busy," Corbyn said. I didn't believe him though. I've been their friends long enough to tell he was lying. I looked at him straight into his eyes, into his soul. 

"No. No, he's not!" I said. The boys held me back.

"Brooklyn, no!" Jonah shouted. I escaped their grip and ran to Zach's room. I opened the door and I saw a girl on top of Zach, making out with him.

"Z-Zach?" I stuttered. The two of them separated and then I continued on, "Hey... I-I'm back." I realized I was never in a relationship with him but I liked him so much. It just broke my heart into millions of pieces. 

"Hey there.." He said quietly. 

"Oh! Sorry...Um...Am I interrupting something?" I asked politely, hiding the fact that my heart has just been stepped on over and over. 

"Hey, Brooklyn!" The girl said. I looked at her with a confused expression. 

"Do you know her?" Zach asked.

"Yeah, do you know me?" I asked. Zach looked at me with a confused face. 

"Oh! Sorry, I haven't introduced myself," The girl said, reaching out her hand, "My name is Chloe."

"Umm......Well, you know me so I'm just going to wait in the living room to tell you, Zach." I left the room and almost shut the door back when I heard something that spooked the living daylights out of me.

"Well isn't she a good girl." That was exactly how Chloe said it. I immediately ran out of the house, sobbing. I ran to the park and sat down on a bench, crying and crying. Then, someone came and sat down next to me. I didn't look up and just cried. They'll leave anyway.

"Are you ok?" I heard a familiar voice say.

"What happened?" I heard another voice say. It was Isabella and Daniel. Maybe some of the boys are here too so I attempted to stop crying. I just cried even more until I stopped. When I stopped, I looked up and the boys, except for Zach was there. I told them what happened and they sat in front of me. They looked horrified as I continued to unveil what had happened. I left out my theory of how Chloe is probably the anonymous person.

"So that's why you left?" Daniel asked. 

"Yeah," I whispered, looking at my hands. 

"You could've told us despite what this unknown person said," Jonah replied. 

"I know."

"Then why didn't you?" Jack asked.

"I was afraid you guys would've gotten hurt if I told you." When I finished my sentence, everyone got into a group hug.

Zach's POV
~~~~~~~~~

When Brooklyn walked into the room and saw Chloe and me, I think my heart broke. The look on her face...I could just tell she was heartbroken. I hated to see her like this, but the only reason why I'm with Chloe is because of Brooklyn. 

When Brooklyn left, Chloe told me, "Well isn't she a good girl." I had no idea what she was talking about.

"Umm...Yeah," I agreed awkwardly. Then, I heard Brooklyn run to the door and out. 

"Aww...Isn't that too bad," Chloe just said, "Ok, continue." I just stared at her in disbelief. 

"Ok. That's it! Please leave the house," I said, sternly. 

"Wh-What? Why?" She asked, "I thought you were having a good time."

"Just leave," I said, opening my door for her. She took some slow steps to the door and then left. I then proceeded to think about Brooklyn, I sat down, overwhelmed at what just happened. 

I need to talk to her about what happened.

"Get your act together, Herron!" I talked to myself, "If you like her, you wouldn't cause her pain."

It did look like she was hurt. 

When I look into those beautiful eyes of hers, I remember all the memories we made together. Especially at the beach. Either just the two of us or with friends, it was all worthwhile to make those memories together.

I took a deep breath in and said, "Ok Herron, you got this. You got your facts straight and now you need to make it up to her." I stood up and walked out the door.
