"You should leave right now," I shouted, and he silently left the house.

When Jenny heard my shouting, she came to me to see what's wrong. I recited everything Edward and I talked about, and she looked like she was about to explode when I got to the end of the story.

"How can anyone do something like that to their best friend?" Jenny said.

"I don't know Jenny. I don't understand how he even thought of doing this to me... We were so close, and I would have never done this to him... I would have never told the police it was him when I knew it wasn't."

I got up and went to my room and stayed there the whole day thinking of how we can get into Mia's house the next day but couldn't make any plans, so I just slept for most of the day.

When I woke up Jenny was already asleep, I got something to eat then returned to my room and started thinking again about how we can enter Mia's old house. The only thing I was able to think about was to go in the middle of the night and sneak in like they do in the movies, but I decided against it and thought it'd be better to try to befriend the people living in the house. With that in mind, I started gathering information about the case from the internet.

After reading many articles, I realized something. Mia's boyfriend, Jake, was supposed to come the same night of the murder, but he did not show up, and this is weird because he always did what he said and this was the first time he said something and didn't do it.

A weird coincidence...

Or is it??

I need to get in touch with him again and see what happened.

The next day, I woke up and started preparing breakfast for me and Jenny when Edward came...

I opened the door and just gaped at him.

" I want to apologize for what I did and said yesterday."

" Well, your apology is not accepted, so leave."

" Come on sky it was a mistake. I'm sorry."

"First, do not ever call me sky again, and second I still do not forgive you," I said then tried to close the door, but he pushed it open again and started to yell at me.

" Do not pretend to be an angel Sky. You were in the house with her and you were the only one there that day, so why wouldn't I think that you are the killer? Think about it. You are the only logical solution for this case. It's not my fault that I stated a fact. I only said I saw sky in the room that same day, and they took it as you are the killer, so I did not do anything wrong." He yelled.

" I SAID do not ever call me sky again." I replied calmly "and I did not say that I want to hear what you have to say about what you did... oh and also, I was not the only suspect. Jake was supposed to come that same day, but he never showed up, and no one interrogated him like they did to me."

" What? I didn't know that Jake was coming. No one knew actually! Do you think he might have done it? Do you think he killed Mia?"

"He might have I'm not sure yet, but I will try to find out."

Just like that we started to work together and forgot everything about our fight, but after a while, I asked him " Edward, can I ask you something?"

"Sure." He said.

"What was the reason behind the disagreement you had with Mia?" I asked.

" I will tell you when the time is right Rose. Just wait please." He said then left, and I was left to my thoughts once again.

After a little while, I went out to get some food, and when I arrived at my favorite place, I saw someone that I didn't want to see now.

"This is not the time for him to be here. I didn't want our paths to cross now. This is too much for now, and I can't deal with anything more." I thought before turning and going in the direction of my house again, feeling no need for food.

But of course, my luck would make him look right in my eyes when I tried to leave.

"Hey! Wait!" He said, and I pretended not to hear him, so he ran after me. When he reached me he asked, " Do I know you? You look very familiar."

And in my mind, I said of course you do you, idiot. I'm Sky, Mia's friend. But of course I didn't tell him that I just started back at him and said "No. Who are you?"
