"How did you know?" I demanded the moment I answered the call.
Mom and dad both fell silent on the other end.
"Come on! I deserve to know, don't I?" I said. "You guys want me to think you both sent that guy?"
I had locked the door of my room and was sitting down on the floor.
"Skylar, are you alright?" Dad asked.
I was about to snap back when I decided otherwise. Taking a deep breath, I exhaled. Chicken, on the other hand, who looked happy for some company, sat down on my lap.
"I told you to lock the doors. Why didn't you listen?" Mom asked worriedly.
I looked outside the dark night sky. "I always forget to lock the doors, mom." I pointed out the obvious.
"And you aren't hurt?" Dad asked.
I touched the slight cut on my collarbone.
"No. Caden saved me."
I rolled my eyes frustratedly. "Does that matter? What matters right now is how you knew mom?"
She fell silent again.
"It's the locker isn't it? What is in it?" I asked.
I could've found it out myself. But firstly, I couldn't find it and secondly, if it was supposed to be a locker, it must be locked.
"Skylar, why don't we come back and tell you? Face to face?" Dad asked.
I leaned my head back on the door and blew out a sigh.
"When will you come back?" I asked.
"Give us few days, dear." Mom said.
I nodded even if they weren't watching.
"Why don't you stay at Alex's tonight?" Dad suggested.
I thought they'd never say that.
I went downstairs to find Seth and Shane gone. Caden and Adrian were left. Caden looked up at me from his phone but once again, I looked away.
"Who was it?" He asked.
I looked at him with a frown. "No one."
Adrian ended the phone call and looked at us. "Seth says he might've gotten a lead."
I sighed and sat down on the couch. "You guys don't have to stay."
