Chapter 12- They Have The Same Brain


Where am I? What am I doing here? "Hello?" I tried to call out. There was still a sac on my head and my hands were tied behind my back. It feels chilly in here.

After a while, I can feel heels clicking and a person stood in front of me. "Aw, look at you, so helpless, you have no one to save you now"

I instantly recognized the voice "Shayne?"

"Good, you know me, then there's no need for that thing on your head" I can feel the sack being pulled from my head and I squinted at the brightness that greeted my eyes

"What do you want?" I asked

"I want you to take your dirty hands off my men"

"Your men? Sorry, I don't quite follow" I bit out

"Let me make it simple for you pea-sized brain, stay away from the Wilsons"

"If my brain is pea-sized then what's the size of yours?" I sarcastically answered

"Stay away from them or I will make the rest of your high school life miserable"

"Then good luck with that because there is no way in hell I'm going to stay away from them"

She bended down to get to my level and said "if you don't respond to threats then I will resort to blackmail"

"You have nothing against me" Does she?

"You're right, your life is as pathetic as you are but I will find something soon and when I do, you're going to regret it"

She then left me on the cold tiled floor, my hands still tied behind my back. I sighed and tried to rack my brain for a way out of this, I realized I was in the locker room and started to look around.

I saw a pair of scissors on the floor ten feet away from me. I tried and failed to stand up so I resorted to crawling towards it. After what seemed like hours, I managed to cut myself free and went to the cafeteria to get myself some food.

I didn't realize it was already lunch time, great I missed history and home ec. Oh well, I looked for Alison but couldn't find her. Maybe you're wondering why I'm so calm after being so brutally dragged and threatened by Shayne, well, I'm sort of used to it and I know those were only empty threats so I had nothing to worry about.

If she does find something on me, I'll deal with it then, in the mean time, I have to worry about my grades and other school stuff. I saw my best friend and walked towards where she sat. "Hey Al" I smiled at her

"Where were you? I was looking for you all morning and the Wilson brothers were asking about you and I had nothing to tell them"

"Well, uhm, I was dragged, tied and threatened all morning so yeah, I'm fine"

"What?" Worry was evident in her face and she was begging me to tell her what happened

"Shayne, she had her minions put a sac on my head and they dragged me to the locker room and she threatened me and left. Then I had to find a way to free myself so I basically crawled towards a pair of scissors I found lying on the floor"


"Yeah, so I'm peachy"


"Quit it already" I playfully slapped her arm

"And the next thing you do after you got free was get some food?"

"Yeah, why?"

"You're so weird sometimes, why do I even bother"

"What? I was hungry and I don't want to mope around and cry after being harassed, no, I will get up and let karma take place"

"You obviously lost it, have they hit your head or something" she tried to look for cuts or bumps on my head but I moved away

"I didn't hit my head, I'm just looking on the bright side, she will have her downfall some day and when she does, I will be there to laugh my ass off"


We walked to class after lunch and the rest of my day was pretty boring. Which was odd because usually, I would have been harassed by now or I would've been irritated by Heath. Where is he? I miss his company. His company? Really?

Just when I thought I would have a boring day, why do I have to jinks it "Thinking about me sweetheart?"

"In your dreams Wilson"

"Oh I do, in my dreams, you were always thinking of me and you couldn't take you hands off of me"

"Shut up Heath, I'm trying to listen" I lied

"No you weren't, you were day dreaming of me and how we would ride into the sunset together"

"Please stop talking, you're ruining my day"

"Then my job here is done" he smirked and went back to doing whatever he was doing

After school, I was surprised to see the Wilsons waiting for me in front of the school. "We gave you a ride to school, I think it's only proper that we take you home" Ethan said with a big grin on his face. Someone looks happy

"No thank you, I want to walk" I tried to tease them a little

"Come on Mel, don't make us drag you into the car" Brad answered

"Then drag me, I want to walk" Next thing I know, I was sitting shot gun and looking out the window. You see, I don't get my way with the Wilsons, after I made my last statement, Heath ungracefully put me over his shoulder and carried me to his car.

"This is not the road to my house" I looked at him

"We know" Heath said, grinning, amusement in his eyes. I narrowed my eyes at him and let it go, wherever they were taking me was not good.

I'm going to be here for a while so I decided to catch up on sleep. Not that I needed catching up.

"Maybe we should just dump cold water on her" Ethan said, he sounded like Heath for a moment there, I swear, they have the same brain.

"No" same old Brad, to my rescue

"Then we just dump her to the water" Heath told them. Nope, I stand corrected, they do have the same brain.

"No" Brad answered firmly

"You're no fun brother"

"You call dumping a sleeping girl in the water fun? She could die!" Brad still coming to my rescue

"Fine" Heath muttered

"What the hell!" I screamed jumping from the car "it's freaking cold you moron!"

"That's why it's called ice sweetheart" Heath tried to control his laughter. Ethan was on his back laughing like a lunatic while Brad looked amused. Let me clear things up, as I was listening in on their conversation, Heath put ice inside my clothes.

"Why would you do that?!" I didn't care if some people were looking at me, wondering why I was screaming

"Well, it was the fastest way to wake you up" Liar, he knew I was awake.

"You're so frustrating!"

I walked away from them and figured out where we were. We were on the beach. Wow! The sunset was beautiful. Then I heard someone walk up behind me.

"Sorry Melanie"

"It's fine Heath"

"Why do I always end up apologizing to you?"

"I don't know, maybe because you keep on pulling you stupid pranks on me!"


"Fine" I muttered

"You have to admit, it was pretty hilarious"

A smile appeared on my face, he was right, it was pretty hilarious, if only it didn't happen to me! "Whatever"

"Does that mean I'm forgiven?"

"Yeah" I smiled at him

He got closer and told me "You look beautiful"

"Is that part of you I'm sorry speech?"

"Nope, I'm stating a fact that you so obviously don't agree to"

"You're right, I don't"

"You still look beautiful"

"Stop, where are the other two morons?" I tried to lighten up the mood

He pointed to two figures who looked like a couple splashing water at each other. They really looked like a couple, I couldn't contain my laugh.

"What's so funny?"

"They look like a couple"

"You are disgusting Ms. Ross, that's an image I won't remove from my head for a while"

"I might know a way to remove it" I stated in complete innocence and he narrowed his eyes at me.

"I think my mischievousness is rubbing off on you?"

"Is that even a word?"

"Yup, I wanted to use it"

I laughed at his vocabulary and hit him on the back of the head and ran like hell. You know the drill, I didn't get far when he caught up to me and he carried me towards the freezing water. "Let me go!" I yelled

"With pleasure" then he dropped me on the ice cold water

After an hour of splashing water at each other we drove home and you know my mother isn't too happy.

"Where have you been young lady?"

"With Heath, Brad and Ethan" I didn't even bother lying

"Why is your hair dripping wet?"

"We went to the beach"

"It's freezing outside"

"Sorry mom"

"Just go to your room and dry yourself, I don't want you to get sick"

I walked up to her and hugged her, she looked like she needed it. I went to my bathroom after that.

The next morning, I felt sick, swimming in freezing water wasn't such a bright idea after all.


No one answered, she must be out. I groggily got up and went to the medicine cabinet and took pills. I laid back down, great another day of missed school.

The next time I woke up it was almost lunch time and my mom was still not home. I needed someone to take care of me. Awesome mom, you pick now of all days to take the whole day off. So I called the not-so-next-best-thing.

"Miss me already sweetheart?"

Heath's voice made me a little better. "Hey, can you do me a favor?"

"Sure, are you alright? Why weren't you in class this morning?"

"I'm sick"

"I'm coming, be there in a bit"



"Can you buy food, I don't exactly have the energy to cook"

"Okay Mel"

I sat down on the couch and flipped through channels as I waited for Heath. "Mel?"


"Hey sweetheart"

"How did you get in?"

"I have a key remember?"


I tried to sit down, I didn't realize I dozed off. "Here" he helped me sit up and he gave me soup

"Eat this"


I took a sip of the soup, careful not to burn my tongue. "Where did you buy this?"

"I made it"

"What?" I shrieked

"Sweetheart what's wrong?"

"I wanted to feel better, not feel worse"

He looked hurt for a while then he saw me smiling. "Heath, I was kidding"

"I knew that"

"Did you?"

"Of course, now finish your soup"

"Thank you, it's delicious"

"That's actually the first time I made something for a girl"

"Are you going soft on me Mr. Wilson?"

"No, I'm not, I just wanted to tell you that"

"Well, I'm honored" it warms me to know he did this for me and only me.

"My pleasure, now go to sleep"

"Don't go"

"I'll stay"


"Stop thanking me, I'm just glad it's me you called"

I didn't know how to respond to that so I smiled at him and gave him a peck on the cheek. His first reaction was, he blushed. Heath Wilson actually blushed.

I dozed off to sleep once more and when I woke up, Heath was nowhere to be found. "Heath?"

"I'm here sweetheart" he was walking out of the kitchen and into the living room

"I thought you left"

"I told you, I'm staying right here"


"Stop thanking me"

I giggled at him, clearly not used to having someone show appreciation for what he did.



"Will you go with me tomorrow?" For a while I didn't know what he was talking about and then I remembered his parents' charity ball.

"Sure Heath"



"Thank you"

"Stop thanking me" I replied, mimicking his voice and he looked like he could now relax. I have a new problem, I don't have a dress. Great! I'm going to a ball hosted by the Wilsons and I have nothing to wear!

After Heath left, I called my mom. "Hey honey, feeling better?"

"Mom, where are you?"

"At the mall"

"And you didn't call me?"

"You were sick"

"I'll meet you there mom"

"Wait what?"

"Mom, I don't have a dress for tomorrow"

"You are not going Melanie Ross"

"Why?" I whined

"Because you're sick"

"I feel better, Heath has been taking care of me"


"Yeah, I called him since you weren't here and I figured you were busy and I was hungry"



"Fine, meet me here and we'll find you a dress but if you don't feel better by tomorrow, you won't be going to that ball"

"Thanks mom"

I put on something I could easily take off since I'm going to be trying on dresses. I settled for jean shorts, olive green shorts and black sandals. I put my phone and wallet in my purse and I was out the door.


"What took you so long? This is my second latte"


"You're sick and you decided to wear shorts?"

"Mom, I wanted to try a lot of dresses today"

"Fine, let's go"

We went inside and I tried to find THE DRESS.
