What do you mean she's gone?
"Well, she said she wasn't feeling well, so..." Ashley trailed off.
"I hope she's feeling better now." Andy said, attempting to brighten the conversation a bit. He was the first one to enter the bus and he called out to Lily. "Lily? We're back!" No response. "Lily?"
"Her bunk is empty..." CC said. "Everything's gone."
Andy's mind began reeling with thoughts and overflowed with emotions. Just the thought of her leaving him without the slightest hint or small goodbye was enough to break his heart down the middle.
"No," He refused to believe it. "What do you mean gone? She can't be gone. I did everything for her. I thought..." He stopped himself. Tears began to choke him as the forced their way down his cheeks. He quickly wiped away his tears and took a deep breath. "I'm going to get her back."
It was a quick decision. He wasn't even sure where she could have gone but that didn't matter to him. He was going to let fate decide if he was supposed to find her or not. He hopped in the first cab that stopped for him when he got out to the main road. "Nearest airport." He ordered. "And step on it."
It was like a scene out of a movie. The guy racing to find the girl so he could profess his love to her and get her to stay with him. He just had to hope that like in all the movies, he wasn't too late.
The cab didn't even get a chance to stop before he was pushing the door open and throwing himself onto the sidewalk. He ran through crowds of people, getting his name shouted at by a couple fans who recognized him. But he had no time to stop and say hi to them. He had to find Lily. He wasn't even sure if this was the right airport but he had a feeling that she was here.
He forced his way through one last large crowd of people and saw her standing at the entrance to the tunnel, about to leave his life forever.
"Lily, wait!" He ran towards her.
She turned to see him running towards her. Now her mind was reeling and overflowing with emotions. "Andy, what are you doing here?"
"I came to find you. You can't leave me. I did everything for you. I thought this was going to be our chance to finally be together like we always wanted." Andy pleaded and begged her to stay with him.
Lily looked confused. "Stay with you? I thought you wanted me to leave. Your note said it all." She held up the note to him.
He took the note from her and began to read it. As he scanned the words on the page, he immediately recognized his hand writing but knew he didn't write this to her for the reason she thinks.
"Lily, I wrote this to you six years ago." Andy explained. "This was my final goodbye letter to you when you didn't write back to me. You're telling me you just got it now?"
Lily nodded. "It was on my pillow... Like the other notes you were leaving for me."
"Other notes?" He asked. "I never left you any other notes. I never left you this one. I thought I sent this one to you all those years ago."
"But I thought--" She stopped herself. "I thought that this final goodbye letter was you revealing yourself as the person who was writing me all those horrible notes."
"You were getting those notes, too?" He asked.
"What?" Now none of this was making any sense. "You mean--"
"Someone's been messing with our lives." Andy cut her off. "And I'm not going to rest until I find out who it is."
