Corruption - Chapter OneCHAPTER ONECorruption - Chapter One by nighthunter098
If you have not read Innocence--the prequel to Corruption, then you shouldn't read this..unless you want to be confused. You can read it if you want. It was just a warning.
Gloria pulled the covers off of me like she always does, waking me from my slumber.
"Come on." I moaned, turning to my other side.
"You asked me to wake you at seven, Miss." Gloria said, entering the closet. I watched Gloria with one eye open, one eye closed. She went into the closet, and came out of it in what seemed like a second, holding a plie of clean clothes. She set them next to my head.
She knelt down, her face inches from mine. "Aden is speaking to your parents in the dining room Miss. You might want to be there." She stood up again, nodding.
I sprang from the bed and took the clothes. I gave Gloria a hug, thanking her for the warning, and went into the bathroom to change.
Gloria and I had become really close these past four weeks. I could confide anything to

As we walked down our usual path to the big tree in the forest, the sun shone on our faces. The sun was warming to me, making me feel at peace. I could tell Aden felt the same way. He had his eyes closed, holding my hand, letting me steer him.
I stopped a few feet in front of Addison's grave. We hadn't been back to this spot since the funeral. I always refused, never ready to be here again. I still wasn't sure if I was ready for it yet, but needed to. I could feel it.
When I looked up at Aden, he was staring at me. His bright green eyes filled with wonder, trying to figure out what I was thinking. I let go of his hand and walked up too the headstone. Aden stayed where we was, watching me.
I traced the letters of her name with my finger.
I don't know what I would have done without you. I would never have survived; none of us would have. You were beginning to be my friend. I wish we had that time together. I think Aden still loves you, but I am not sure. He hasn't been

I couldn't believe Mike was here. I had just talked to him on the phone a few hours ago. I sat there on my bed, hugging Mike close. He had to pry my hands from him so he could look at my face.
His face fell when he saw the wet streaks on my cheeks. The warm tears were flowing out of my eyes, making my vision blurring. I was just so happy to see him. These past few weeks I really needed him to be there. Now he was.
"What's wrong?" He asked. He held my face in his hands, wiping my tears of my cheeks with his thumbs. He seemed to know why I was crying. He knew it was because he was here, he just wanted me to say it.
I smiled up at him. His touch was something I had missed the most. "I missed you."
Mike laughed to himself. "Of course you did. I missed you too." He got up from the bed, and helped me off as well. I couldn't help myself, I had to hug him again. I threw myself on him, almost making him fall over. He spun us around in circles, before making me let go of him

"Mike?" I whispered into the dark once more. I stepped onto the balcony. Mike had his back to me, looking at the moon. He had his shirt off, his bare chest gleaming in the moon. He was only wearing pajama pants, his bare feet perched on the stone cold ground.
He looked just like Aden had, but Aden was in the sun, not moonlight. The irony was so great in the situation, I had to choke back a laugh. Mike was breathing deeply, his chest moving in a steady beat. I walked towards him and put my hand on his back, remembering what I had done with Aden
Mike jumped, not knowing I was there. When he saw me, his lips turned up in a smile. I saw him look me up and down before he said anything. "I gave you those." he gestured to my pajamas.
I copied Mike's actions, looking him up and down as well. "And I gave you those."
"You couldn't stay away long enough, could you?" Mike asked, puffing out his chest.
I didn't answer. I really couldn't stay away; I wasn't going to tell him that
