    If You Can Keep A Secret&hearts Chapter Four&hearts

    ((Okay. If you're still reading then all I can say is "wow." Any way. Hope you keep reading.))<p>When I wake up, I'm in a small room with one small window way up high. There is a door on the opposite side of the room. Suddenly I hear Axel yelling? or moaning? from the other side of the door. "Axel!!" I exclaim. I run up to the door & begin pounding on it & running my fingers all over it, trying to find a handle or something. "You can't get out." Says a familiar voice behind me. It sounds like Axel but I know he's outside so it has to be Reno. I turn around. Sure enough, there stands Reno, an overconfident smirk on his face. "What the h.e.l.l is going on here?" I snap. He walks closer. I'm smack up against the door so once again I have no place to run.<p>'D.a.m.n it!' I think think to myself. He's right in front of me now. 'What is it with people wanting to get in my face?' I think disgustedly. I move my hands to defend my self & faster than you can say 'snap' he has them pinned above my head. "This is not good.' I think, slightly worried. I feel a sharp jab in my right arm. "Ow! F.u.c.k!" I say. I look up. A small needle with a small bottle attached is in Reno's hand. The needle is in my right arm. The bottle contains a milky substance that is flowing into my arm. With a jolt of shock I realize what it is. <p>Frantically I project my last coherent thought into Axel's mind.<p>'Reno just injected me with aphrodisiac! If they use any evidence of me & Reno m.a.k.i.n.g o.u.t as blackmail, tell them you know I was under the influence of aphrodisiac.' Then my memory is blank for the space of about ten hours.<p>When I come to my senses, I am laying on a couch. My shirt is mostly unzipped & my shorts are only halfway on. Reno is asleep behind me, his shirt unbuttoned & his pants unzipped. My first thought is "how in the h.e.l.l did I get here?!" Then I remember. That must be some weird aphrodisiac if it can erase the memory of everything I did while under it's influence. I hear that familiar sound again. I stand up, yanking my shorts up as I do so. I zip my shirt up then turn around.<p>"Axel!!" I exclaim in relief. I run up to him. He pulls me close & is about to say something when Reno wakes up. Upon seeing me standing with Axel he wakes up fully & they begin arguing. Suddenly, I hear a sound. 'Not again!" I think to myself as Yazoo sneaks up behind Axel. "Axel! Look out!" He looks up, then turns around in time to get hit on the head, again.<p>"G.o.d, I have such terrible timing!" I say quietly to myself. Reno reaches for my arm. I react by punching him in the face. "Good. The score is somewhat settled." I say upon seeing that I broke his nose. "What do you mean?" He asks. "You broke my nose, I broke yours." He looks really mad now. I grin. However, before I can react, he throws that thing he carries straight at my head. "Oh s.h.i.t! That hurt!!" I say, reaching up to touch the slight dent on my forehead where it hit.<p>When I bring my hand back down, my fingers are covered in blood. "You b.i.t.c.h!!" I yell, running at him. Suddenly, my head explodes in pain. I let out a loud cry of pain as all fades to black.<p>((okay I know I've been having blackouts at the end of every chapter but I run out of characters before I can get anywhere else. Anyway, next chapter at secret res three.))<p>&#9825KH&FFfan4ever&#9825

    Cute!!

    This book is so cute, and I loved all the outdoorsy-ness. I read this book because I'm also an outdoorsy girl, but I often get very bored after school or during summer vacation. This book gave me lots of great ideas- planting a garden, birdwatching, how to camp in my own backyard, and a lot more!! Overall, I totally recommend this book to outdoorsy people, and indoorsy people.

    Happy Reading!! :)

    Another Blonde!

    I personally love American Girl, I am 10-years-old.I haven't yet read Lanies books, but I collect American girl books so eventuallly I will. Lanie seems like a very nice girl. The only thing that keeps me from loving her is shes, blonde. I have nothing against blondes, but really there have been at least 2 girls of the year that are blonde(Including girl of the year best friend dolls). Kailey and Gwen. But how many African-American girls have there been, how many Chinese, or Indian? None.
    I think we need more variety in different cultures. We have a Hispanic character which is good. In 2011 I hope for someone whos NOT Caucasian!
