Maira's POV

We were filming the whole day and I was just exhausted of it. I never knew that acting was this tiring and this hard. Matthew glared at me a few times but I just looked away. Lisa and I didn't talk the whole day which made me feel even more alone. Lisa and I were like one human. She was my other half and I was her other half. We couldn't go a day without talking to each other.

I saw that Lisa just finished from her scene and I walked towards her.

"How was it?" I asked and she looked at me. When I saw her, I could tell that she was tired but most of all she looked furious.

"Maira, leave me alone." She said and walked off. Confused, I stayed behind as she left me alone. I saw Dominic, Alberto and Matthew walking out too. Kat and Em were already going home, and Harry left way too early.

"Look who we have here." Dominic said as he walked over to me. I sighed and looked down.

"Do you really think that was acting?" Dominic asked and I looked up. Dominic had a smirk on his face and I knew that he enjoyed this.

"Leave her alone." Matthew said but I knew that he enjoyed it too. He was smiling just like Dominic. Both of them had a problem with me and I had no idea why...

"What is your problem with her?" Alberto asked annoyed and now both Matthew and Dominic were looking at him.

"Our problem is that she is not good enough for this." Dominic said and Matthew just laughed with him. Alberto shook his head.

"You must have a sad life to bully a girl and not a boy." He said, before grabbing my hand and walking away from them. Dominic shouted our name and some swear words but we didn't turn around. When we were finally in the car park, Alberto looked at me. He looked angry and disappointed at the same time...

"Why do you never speak up for yourself?" Alberto asked and I shrugged as I sighed.

"I am not good at that." I said truthfully. Every time I tried to stand up for myself, I sounded silly and people would laugh at me or judge me on it. It happened to me so many times that I just gave up and especially with people like Dominic.

"You have to be others they will drown you even more than you already are." Alberto said and I sighed. I wasn't good at it and yes, I did let people walk over me. How was I suppose to stop them anyway? People do what they desire and they won't stop until they achieve that certain goal. It didn't matter what I said or had done. It wouldn't change anyway.

"I will cope." I said and Alberto sighed. I looked around the car park and Lisa's car was nowhere to be found.

"Where is Lisa's car?" I asked in confusion. She did seem angry but I didn't think that she would leave us here at night. Would she?

"She already left. We can go by train." Alberto asked and I sighed in frustration. How could Lisa be like that? Leaving us in the middle of the night with nothing to get home too.

"Or we could order a taxi." I said and Alberto smiled. Taking the train at this time didn't seem safe to me and Dylan was already angry at me for not being at home. He would go insane if he would know this. I just hoped we reached before Lisa or at the same time.

As Alberto was calling a taxi, I looked up. The moon was full and the stars were shining. They looked like tiny crystals and it was honestly beautiful. Nature was so beautiful and I never understood what the need was to kill nature to get what humans wanted too. We were selfish and now that climate changes were severe, everyone started to get scared. What humans forget was that they needed nature more than nature did them.

I noticed a black car waiting and from far, I could see two men sitting in it. For a second, I thought it was Matthew and Dominic but as the man turned on the engineer of the car, the light was shining on his face. It wasn't Dominic or Matthew. When the car was driving, I didn't think much of it but when it was coming towards my direction, I started to get scared. I froze and just looked at the two men. I couldn't move or do anything but before I even moved away, someone grabbed my hand and pulled me. I screamed softly and closed my eyes.

"Maira!" I heard Alberto shout before I opened my eyes. The person was still holding me and as I could feel his muscle, I realized that it was a man and it didn't take me too long to realize that Matthew had helped me.

"What is wrong with you?" Matthew asked angrily when I looked at me. Why would he even care?

"It was too fast." I breathed out and he wanted to scream at me again but Alberto came.

"Maira, are you okay?" He asked quickly and I nodded as I was still looking at Matthew. His jaw was clenched which showed that he was angry. I blinked a few times and looked away from him. Where did he even come from and who were those guys?

"I am okay." I said quickly, answering Alberto. Alberto looked up and saw that I was focused on Matthew. He went quiet and said nothing more. Matthew looked at both of us and then walked away. What was it about him? He was so dark...

"The taxi is here." Alberto said and I smiled. Together we got in the taxi and the man that was driving it quickly drove away. I breathed out again and looked out of the window.

Nothing in the world could prepare me for what Dylan's outburst was going to be. I knew how he got back in England when he thought that I had endangered myself and now he would think that too. I didn't blame him that he was angry. I should have let him know where I was... The taxi stopped in front of the Sherwood mansion and I could see Lisa's car in the car park.

Well, I was going to die.

Alberto paid for the taxi and then we walked inside. I sighed as I entered and closed the door behind us. I saw Dylan waiting but there was no sign of Lisa which meant that she was already in her room. Nice that she cared enough if we did arrive safely at home. Dylan walked towards me and I could see that he was raging.

"What the hell, Maira. What do you think you were doing?!" Dylan shouted at me and I sighed. I was tired and I didn't want him to shout at me too. It would just make me even more tired than I already was.

"I am alive. Don't worry." I said and I wanted to walk to my room but he grabbed me by my arm and pulled me around which caused me to face the angry Dylan again.

"Does this seem like a joke to you?" Dylan asked annoyed and I nodded.

"Yes!" I shouted annoyed.

"I am not a child, Dylan! I won't die or be in danger!" I shouted and Dylan glared at me as he knew what had happened with the car almost running me over. He came a bit closer to me.

"You have half no idea in what kind of danger you could put yourself in too. The danger is always surrounded. It just waits for the right time." Dylan said and I frowned. What did he mean? It just sounded like the danger was the third person.

"Go to sleep now. We will talk tomorrow." He said and I sighed. I hugged him and gave him a kiss on the cheek.

"Goodnight." He said and I smiled weakly. I know that he was still angry at me but what good would it do if we kept on arguing in the middle of the night. I would have probably given up anyway. I was way too tired for all of this.

"Goodnight." I said before walking up to the stairs to my room. As I was walking towards my room, I saw that I passed Lisa's room.

Should I go and talk to her or just leave her alone? I sighed and knocked before I walked into her room. She didn't reply and when I walked into her room, I saw that she was sleeping already. I guess she had a bad day. Quietly, I left her room again and walked to my room. When I finally reached, I closed the door behind me and breathed out loudly.

"Finally rest." I said before jumping on my bed.
