The young woman looked up at Nick and smiled sadly. She then slowly placed a friendly hand on his arm. "Thank you, Nick. I'm glad you want to help me. And I in return to you." After this, she placed her hand down, and bit her lower lip, looking up at Nick.
She didn't want him or the others to get hurt. But as a friend, Melissa would do anything to protect them, even if it meant her life.
