<P>Olivia ran out of Levi's room so fast, I couldn't stop her. Julia was crying, and Levi had a worried look on his face.</P>

<P>"I'll go check on her," I said to them, and Levi nodded at me.</P>

<P>I didn't know my way around this house, and their property was huge, so she could be anywhere by now. I ran down the long, oak steps, and out one of the back doors. I saw a man cleaning off some tables outside, so I assumed he was the Seawood's butler. </P>

<P>"Excuse me?" I asked the butler.</P>

<P>"Yes, can I help you?" he gave me a confused look as in who the hell are you?</P>

<P>"Do you know where Olivia is? She's kind of upset over something, and I'm trying to find her."</P>

<P>He nodded at me "I see. That makes a lot more sense now," he said, laughing. "She usually goes to the tree house the family built when the kids were younger."</P>

<P>"And where's that at?"</P>

<P>The butler pointed far off in the woods. I could see what looked like a box from far away, and that must've been the tree house he was talking about.</P>

<P>"Thank you." I said</P>

<P>I walked for what seemed like days to get to this god forsaken tree house, until it finally started to get bigger to me. The tree house was huge. It must have taken weeks or even months to build, but Mr. Seawood probably pulled it off in a matter of days. I stood in front of it, trying to catch my breath. How the heck did she get out here so fast??</P>

<P align=center>Olivia's POV</P>

<P align=center></P>

<P>I loved this tree house. It was a great place to run away from everything. It had everything I needed while I was hiding from people--food, water, a bathroom, a TV. My brothers, dad, and I all built it about 10 years ago. It was something special we did together. </P>

<P>I couldn't get my mind of Julia and Levi. How they both lied to me. I never really cry, but this was an exception. I had been crying ever since Jeremy and Julia called for me to come back. I let out a long sigh, and opened my eyes again, then I heard some crunching noises outside that sounded like footsteps. I got up and looked outside the window. It was Jeremy. How did he know about this place. I heard a knock at the door, and opened it almost immediately. </P>

<P>"Hi," he said sympathetically.</P>

<P>My eyes, I'm sure, were bloodshot red from crying, and my mascara was probably running terribly, but I let him in anyway, not caring.</P>

<P>"Hi," I replied, wiping my eyes.</P>

<P>"Don't cry." he said quietly. </P>


<P>I turned my head away from, feeling like I was about to cry again. Jeremy wrapped his arms around me and kissed the top of my head.</P>

<P>"It just feels like she lied to me this whole time...just to get to my brother!" I wailed.</P>

<P>"Oh, Olivia, do you honestly believe that? Julia was crying her eyes out back there because she knew she hurt you. You two ARE best friends." Jeremy said, not letting me go.</P>
