Nothing. Nothing.” I say. I don't want to cause Peter any more pain! Though, if I don't, it won't matter. I start biting my nails trying to think. “ Seriously Dollie, is anything wrong?” Derick says. Come on, tell them. I have to tell them. “ I'm gonna go for a walk.” I say instead I get up to go. “ Dollie, you wouldn't have a worried lookin your face, or be biting your nails if you were just going to go fora walk.” James says. I don't know what to say. “ Well, I. . . .” I
start. They are all looking at me for the truth. I realize I am starting to bite my nails again, though I quickly lower my hand. “I just. . . . want to go for a walk. That's all.” I start off again for thewoods.As I leave I can tell that they were not at ease of the answer I gave. When I am in the woods I hear twigs snapping and the ruffle of bushes. One of them is following me. No one would make that much noise except James because of his hurt leg.“ What are you doing James?” I say as I turn around. “ The question is, what are you doing?” He asks me.“ I asked you first.” “ I asked you. . .. . . second.” “ Well, the question is returning to you, What are you doing?” I say. “ What are you-” “ James!” “ Alright, alright, I was following you. You seemed pretty strange back at camp.” He says as he using his crutch to come over to me. “ Why were you acting like that?” “ Because. . . . . . . I. . . wanted to.” “ I can tell when some one is lying Dollie. And you are. Whats the truth?” He asks. I hesitate to answer.“ Maybe I don't want to tell you.” I say. “ Why wouldn't you?” he
says. “ Because. . . . . . its between me and my thoughts.”Just now Derick gets pushed out of the bushes. “ Woooah!” he says as he is pushed out. Then comes Jake. With Sean. Followed by Peter. “ When I said I was going on a walk that meant I wanted to walk alone.” I say. Derick gets up and wipes the dirt off of him. “ What don't you want to tell us?” He asks.“ What are you all doing here!” I yell. “ Following you!” they all yell back. “ Well, I don't need to be followed.” I say as I continue on. “ Well, thats not going to stop us.” Jake says as they all followme. “ What does it take around here to be alone.” I mutter to myself. They all keep on telling me to tell the truth, and I try to not listen to them. “ Fine! You wanna know the truth!” I say. Then I say the first thingthat comes to my mind. “ I'm pregnant.” My eyes open wide. Did Ireally just that? “ WHAT!” They all yell. “ NO! No! Thats not the truth! It was just the first thing that came to my mind!” “ So your most definitely not pregnant?” Jake asks. “ Most certainly.” I say.
They all sigh in relief. “ So then. Out with it?” James says. “ I. . . I like rocks.” I say as I pick up a shiny rock. “ thats a definite lie, saying your pregnant is a better lie than that.” Derick says. “ fine, I'm pregnant!”“ If you were pregnant you would be all. . . . .planet-like.” Sean says.
