I Might Just Be a 'biker girl' But You Can Tell Me

Corby sat on the very edge of the sofa, her small arms tightly wrapped around her legs. Everyone stood around one chair where Flamara was, she was indjured, but better now.  Corby stared into Leigh's eyes, who was sitting on the floor next to Geoff. Corby's eyes began to well up with tears, Corby didn't cry, but this was too bad to not cry.

"Leigh," Corby whispered, Leigh's head slowly turned to her looking concerned."I need to talk to you..." Leigh's face suddenly looked shocked, like she already knew what Corby wanted to say.

"Can it wait a second please?" Leigh asked, nodding towards Flamara and Geoff. Corby shook her head.

"I'll look after him, go, It's fine," Flamara smiled to Leigh.

"Okay, for a minute." Leigh replied, getting up off of the floor and walking into the corridor with Corby. "If you're playing some kind of sick joke this isn't funny." Leigh hissed. Corby looked up at her, ashamed.

"I don't know what to say..." Corby sniffed.

"Well say something because I don't have long," Leigh replied, sitting down and pulling Corby down with her.

"I wanted to apoligise, for me intruding..." Corby whispered.

"Look. You're just a kid! You'll never understand anything! Where I come from, you have to be taller. I have no backround! I have no life! It is nothing to a little kid like you obviously." Leigh hissed, this wasn't like her.

"Please, I'm sorry. I won't do it again..." Corby whispered.

"Corby, even if you apoligise it won't make it better. You...what did you do anyway?" Leigh asked.

"I'm sorry, I'm so, so, sorry," And slowly Corby began to cry. Leigh placed one arm around her.

"Nothing matters now. Just wait. You can tell me. Whatever it is. I might just be a 'biker girl' but...you can tell me."
