The truth

Shane's been cutting his paycheck. About a quarter for the Glass House rent, three quarters for something else. Michael has been watching him for the past couple of days wondering how much he's got and why. Then something happen's between Claire and him that changes how they look at eachother.

Chapter 1. Shane's POV

Michael has been looking at me with this weird expression all of dinner, which looked like 'I know what you've done but I don't know why'. "So, how was everyone's day today?" Eve said cheerfully. I mumbled fine through my chilli, while threating about Claire.

"Mine was fine. Eve, do you know where Claire is?" Michael asked and as soon as he ask that Eve choked on her chilli, just as the front door slammed shut.

"Claire!" I shouted springing up from my chair to go over and hug her. "Hey babe, where have you been? You're alright aren't you?" I asked her fretting big time.

"I'm fine, I was at Founders Square and Hannah dropped me off as she was going home, we only just got out." Claire said shaking. I walked her over to the table and sat her down with Eve and went to wash-up.

Michael's POV

Claire was back, and I was doubley annoyed now. At Shane for keeping a secret I was about to pry out of him and for Amelie for keeping Claire so long into the day/night, she had Claire from about eleven this morning to now, eight at night. "Shane!"

"Uh oh, I'm in trouble aren't I Mikey?" Shane was asking a obvious question and he knew it.

"Yeah, you are in trouble. Where the hell is the most of the money that you earn a month Shane? Coz I know for a fact that you get more than what you've been giving us now. It's been a year with only about a quarter of you're income!" I was fuming now and Shane looked ready spill his guts. I realised why, my eyes had turned red, that's when I sensed someone at the door. I swung it open quite forcefully and in tumbled Eve.

"I guess you heard Mikey ranting on about the money then, uh?" Shane said looking calmer now, Eve just nodded still looking at me.

"Sorry Eve. Go sit at the kitchen table and we'll have a chat." I said closing the kitchen door, knowing Claire wasn't going to be allowed to hear this conversation.

"Ok! I admit it alright! I'm buying an engagement ring for Claire from Dallas!" Shane admitted after me and Eve giving him a look that means 'spill your guts'. It shocked me after he said it though, I mean I knew he was serious about Claire but really! Not that serious, me and Eve did it but now he wants to do it!

"Ahh, Shane, that's so sweet. How long have you been saving up? AND WHY THE HELL TELL US NOW!" Eve screamed the last bit at the top of her voice, having me going over to her and blocking her mouth.

"I didn't tell you guys coz I wanted it to be a surprise to Claire and you guys," Shane explained.

genlynne2379: I read the other review of this book and I must say that I disagree with it wholeheartedly.

They should have different names a...

OpheliaJones: This story took a different kind of spin on the "normal girl lives with definitely not normal guy" plot. The plot points of Frey's father, Liam's family, and Frey's view of Liam's world were good to read. She did not fall in love with him in the first couple weeks. Their lives were not smooth in ...
