Um...I guess I'll give this a try. (I always get nervous when I share my work here).
This is from The Chaos (the first book of the series). Chapter four.
Turning to his right, he saw Nick, lying on the opposite bed, sleeping. Getting out of his bed, Adam lightly shook him. The other teen opened his eyes.
“Um…” Adam started, “Can you tell me where I am?”
Nick smiled and sat up. “Why, good morning, buddy! You were out for quite some time! How are you feeling?”
“F-Fine I guess.” Adam answered nervously. “Where am I, exactly?”
“My house, of course!” Nick rubbed Adam’s head, “My mom and I took good care of you. Your brother is here too.” He got out the bed and stretched. “He was really, really worried about you.”
Adam looked down. He remembered running off into the darkness like an idiot, and nearly getting himself killed. He probably had it coming for being so stupid to live. Then again, if he didn't live, how Nathan or his missing parents act?
“Did you…save me from her?” He finally asked.
“It was the right thing to do.” Nick said, before looking at the boy’s face, “Aren't you glad?”
Adam nodded, before looking up. “I am, actually.” He smiled, “I really, really am. I wish there was a way to repay you.”
Nick chuckled, before heading to the door. “None needed.”
Adam blinked in confusion. “Huh?”
“I don’t want a repayment. The fact that you’re alive, and you can return to your brother, is enough of a repayment to me. Come on; I bet mom’s cooking breakfast.”
