Torie smiled. Seeing the guys laughing and having fun brought back her own memories of pain and suffering.
Maria's parents were out of town and they were going to have a girls night. Maria hadn't been at school that day and Torie was worried about her. She put the spare key in the locked door. "Maria?! Hey chickie, where are you? You missed so much drama today....Maria?" She dropped her school bag on the floor by the couch and walked farther into the house. She pushed open Maria's bedroom door. Nothing. Torie walked into the kitchen; again, nothing. Torie happened to see a light in the garage and walked outside to see what was going on. She opened the door to the garage and there, hanging from the rafters was her friend. Torie's continuous screams drew a couple neighbors over. One pulled her away from her friend's body while another called 911.
"TOUCHDOWN!" Mike's shout brought Torie out of her nightmare. She quickly wiped away some of the tears that had fallen.
"Way..." She cleared her shakey voice. "Way to Mike."
