"Kate, what are you doing in here?" the woman asked sweetly as Kate raised the knife over her head.

The woman's face went pale as her eyes widened in terror.

"Kate, you don't want to do this. Just relax and let's sit down and talk about this." the woman said shakily, and Kate clenched her fists around the knife.

"I don't want to!" she yelled, raising the knife higher.

"Kate, just breathe. I think we really should just talk about this." the woman protested, and Kate pushed her onto the bed and got on top of her.

The woman coughed as Kate's legs pushed down into her stomach.

"Do you know how long I've been living here like this? Living a lie? I'm sick of it! You always told me I was special, so why did you keep me locked up in this prison?!"

Kate's mother tried to speak before she went completely limp, her breath cutting off.

Kate smiled at her and leaned down, whispering in her ear.

"Can you keep a secret?"


Cameron twirled the knife in his hand just as his father walked in, talking on the phone.

Cameron didn't bother to look up at his father as he heard the phone clatter to the ground, a gasp coming from his father's mouth.

"Jesus Cameron, you scared me. You should put that knife down." he said as though it was no big deal, picking up his phone.

Cameron clenched his fist around the knife and looked up at his father slowly as he walked away, chattering away on the phone.

Cameron got up and followed him, a smile lighting up his face as the phone dropped to the ground yet again, Cameron's hands closing in around his father's throat.

"Cameron." his father choked, trying to pry his hands away.

Cameron only tightened his grip, pushing his father to the ground.

Blood poured from his head as the knife stabbed again and again, blood splattering on the walls.

Cameron licked the blood away and smiled, leaning down to whisper in his father's ear.

"Can you keep a secret?"


Tara licked her lips, slitting two lines into her wrist to make a cross as her boyfriend walked in.

"Shit Tara!" he yelled, running to the kitchen and getting a tea towel.

He pressed it against her skin as she looked up at his messy hair and sweaty face, her smile disappearing.

"You've been cheating on me." she said blankly, pushing him away from her.

He stumbled before falling down to the ground, staring up at Tara in shock.

"No, I haven't." he lied, but Tara could see straight through him.

"You have!" she screamed, getting on top of him and turning him over, smashing his face into the hard wooden floor.

"Who's the whore?! Tell me! Who!" she screamed wildly, twisting his arms as he cried out in pain.

"I'm sorry Tara, I'm so sorry!" he cried, and Tara stopped and grabbed the knife from behind her back, smiling as it glistened in the light.

He widened his eyes and shook his head before Tara stabbed the knife into his back, watching as blood oozed out from the wound.

Tara smiled and leaned down as his eyes started drooping, whispering in his ear.

"Can you keep a secret?"


"Hey babe! I'm home!" a tired voice called, and Matt raced downstairs.

"Where the fuck have you been?!" he yelled, digging his nails into his head.

"Whoa, relax. I was at Troy's house helping him clean up. Remember that monster party last night?" she explained, and Matt studied her more closely and clenched his fists.

"Don't lie to me you son of a bitch. You slept with him didn't you?" he asked blankly, and she froze.

"No, I would never do that." she said after a brief pause.

"You liar!" he screamed, jumping on top of her and sending her to the ground as her head smashed against the ground.

"Ah!" she cried out, squirming underneath him.

"I would never cheat on you! But you cheated on me!! Why?! Why did you do that?!!" he screamed in her face, continuing to smash her head against the floor.

As her eyes slowly drooped and tears streamed down her pretty face, Matt leaned down to whisper in her delicate ear.

"Can you keep a secret?"


Kate and Tara breathed deeply, smiling as Cameron and Matt came around the corner and walked down to the end of the alley.

"Did you kill them?" asked Kate excitedly, and they both nodded.

Tara's face lit up.

"Brilliant." Tara said, clapping her hands.

"Did anybody see you?" Matt asked, taking a step forward.

Kate and Tara both shook their heads, and the boys sighed in relief.

"Good. Nobody saw us, so we're safe." Cameron said, smiling widely.

"Oh, we saw you." a voice said before gunshots sounded, Kate, Tara, Cameron and Matt falling to the ground.

Their eyes stared up at the sky in pure terror as their families circled around their bodies.

They all leaned down, smiling as Kate, Tara, Cameron and Matt's eyes slowly drooped.

They all looked at eachother before whispering in their ears,

"Can you keep a secret?"
