Katie Trent doesn’t really like Nathan Lucas. She’s only going out with him as a favour to her best friend Jess and her boyfriend Cayden, and now, because Jess is ill, she must go and see him on her own. To put up with his bad moods and even worse breath. And to make matters worse, he has two of his thuggish mates with him. They are waiting for something. Or someone. In a few short horrifying moments, Katie watches as Nathan and his mates lay into someone they think is neighbourhood bad boy Travis Barker. Nathan pulls a knife and before Katie knows what is happening he has stabbed the stranger twice.
