22. Twenty-two~"Wake up!"

Ricky

By the time I find mum, the party is over. She smiles at me and waves me over. "Hey Ricky," she says, "Seen your brother?"

"Yes!" I said, "He's in the garden with Cherry. But mum, I think he's unconscious or something..."

Mum's eyes widen and she pushes past me, heading towards the garden. "Get your dad," she says before she goes out the door. Oh that shouldn't be hard. He's watching football in the living room and yelling because his team isn't winning. And for once, I don't even know what match he's watching.

"Dad!" I whisper-yell, poking the back of his head, "Dad!"

"What?" he asks, not turning to look at me.

"Ryan's hurt, he's in the garden," I say quickly, "Mum told me to go get you." He doesn't seem to hear me. "Dad!" I grab the TV remote and turn it off. "Listen to me!" I shout, shaking his shoulders, "Ryan's in the garden and I think he's fainted or something. He's bleeding badly."

Dad swears loudly and gets up. "The garden?" he says, turning around, "Get the phone."

Everyone's ordering me around and it's getting annoying. I don't like being told what to do. But I grab the phone anyway and run after dad into the garden.

Cherry's still there, silent tears falling down her face. My mum is kneeling beside Ryan, gently shaking him. "Wake up!" she keeps saying.

"Call an ambulance," says Dad, pointing to the phone, "Now."

What if I've killed him? What if he won't wake up? My hands shake as I diall the number.

About a minute later, I hand the phone back to Dad and look at Ryan. "Will he be okay?" I ask in a small voice, "Will he wake up?"

Dad puts his arm around me. "He will," he says gently, "He'll be okay. Do you know how this happened?"

I nod. "We were playing Truth or Dare..." I can't get Rob into trouble, he'll make my life hell. "Ryan dared someone to go into the bin and they didn't want to. So Ryan did it instead..."

I broke off, hearing an ambulance. "Cherry, you should probably go home now," says Mum, "Your parents will be worried."

Cherry nods and walks towards me. "If anything happens to him," she whispered, "It's your fault."

"Sorry," I said quietly.

I'm not sure who I'm saying that to. Cherry or Ryan.
