saphires - ch. 3

I sit on my bed and stare at the lime green smiley face that I found on a sticky. I remember the flare of anger that had caused me to rip it in half. Suddenly a noise jerks me out of my thoughts. *Knock Knock Knock* I turn to my door and shout "Nobody's home!" Knowing that it's lily (my older sister in case you forgot). "Well I'll take that as an invitation." Her voice comes back through. But as the doorknob turns I hear a shriek and the door doesn't open. I drop the two halves of my sticky note on the bed and walk over to the door. "lily?" I ask through the door. Silence. "lily?" My voice gets a little louder. Still, Silence. I crack the door open and peek out. And there, standing in the hallway, is a boy. While lily is up against the wall silently staring in fear at the boy - I am standing a few feet away from him, staring straight into his dark forest green eyes. He stares back, and we just stand there in complete silence. Until Mom comes upstairs. She stares at the back of the boys hood and then in a hostile voice asks "Dennis, what are you doing here?"
