Swimming In Lies
CHAPTER

She
I was breathing heavily. Too heavily, almost. I could feel my heart racing in my chest.
The only person Ryan would obesses over more than me...was my sister?
My sister, Melanie, was a year younger than me. She was in the eighth grade, while Ryan and I were Freshmen, and Adam was a Sophomore.
Ryan would obsess over my sister if I introduced him to her? He would leave me alone?
No, Amelia. You can’t do that to her. A voice in my head told me.
But you’ll finally be alone. Another voice argued.
“Shut up, both of you.” I told myself.
I knew I couldn’t make Melanie suffer through Ryan’s obsessions. That wouldn’t be fair to her. I would just have to deal with his insanity and figure out a different way to get him to leave.
As I laid in my bed, considering my options of getting rid of Ryan, I heard my door open.
Then I felt someone place something next to me and lean over me.
“Hello, Amelia.” He muttered. It was Ryan, of course. “Hello, Ryan.” I replied, tiredly.
“I couldn’t stand being away from that long. I had to come see you.” He whispered. I rolled my eyes mentally. “How sweet. But, Ryan, how did you know where I live? And which room was mine?” I asked nervously.
“I just tracked your phone, beautiful. I hope that’s all right.” He replied like that was the most normal thing in the world.
I smiled on the outside, but screamed on the inside. “That’s so adorable, that you’re willing to work to find me.” I giggled.
“Ryan, you’d better go. My mom will get suspicious.” I warned. “All right. I love you, my gorgeous Amelia.” He said, before leaning down and kissing me on the lips.
“I love you, my flower.” He repeated, expecting a reply.
“I love you.” I replied hesitantly.
“Good girl, Amelia.” He smiled, kissed my forehead, and left.
I was genuinely terrified of Ryan.
