**Note... I drew on personal experience for this part...**
Abbey sat in the White House movie theater with her hands grasping the arms of the seat so tightly her knuckles where beginning to turn white... How had she gotten herself into this?! She hated horror movies... hated them with a passion...
Abbey looked at her children who were sitting in front of her. They were enjoying to movie will all it's scary music and that damn Krugar...
Abbey just knew she was going to have nightmares for weeks... She glanced at the man who was sitting beside her. He seemed to be enjoying this hellish movie...
There was a crash in the movie music and Abbey jumped. She bit down on the scream that threatened to come out. She let a whimper out... She felt like crying... She blinked back the tears that were forming in her eyes.
Jed looked over at Abbey when he heard the whimper emanate from her. He was beginning to feel bad for letting the kids pick this movie. It was very clear to him that Abbey was having a terrible time sitting through it.
It was then that there was a sudden, loud and frightening crescendo in the movie music that caused all five people sitting in the theater to scream.
Abbey threw herself into Jed's right side. She buried her face in his arm and felt her frightened tears fall down her face.
Jed lifted her face and gave her a look of compassion. He wiped away her tears, "It's all right," he whispered.
Abbey shook her head and glanced back at the movie screen. She instantly realized her mistake and dove back for Jed's arm, her body shaking from her terror and panic.
