I Know You're There

At every single school, there's always an emo that gets bullied. The one at Tori's school is different. He still gets bullied, and he never speaks, and no one ever sees him outside of school. There are rumours. Many of them. The main one, his parents have abandoned him. Tori starts suspecting that he lives in the abandoned house next to hers. As she starts getting close to him, and unveiling the horrific truth, she realised his pure beauty. If only everyone else could too...


20. 'He gave me his heart!'

I slipped my thumb under the flap of the envelope, and ripped it away from the other part. Carefully, I pulled the piece of paper out of it, and just stared at it. I didn't unfold it, I was too scared. Ollie stood there, staring at me, waiting for me to read it. Holding my breath, I unfolded it, and scanned over it. There wasn't any space on there to write anything else, it was full with his perfect font. 

"Read it already!" Ollie hissed.

"Shut up," I replied, barely audible against the deafening silence.

I let out the breath I was holding, and inspected the first line. It read 'To Tori', okay, that's a good start. I only noticed my hands were shaking, along with the rest of my body. I was genuinely petrified, but I had to read it, no matter how much I didn't want to.

To Tori,

          I have a lot to explain, and I'm really sorry I didn't tell you earlier. By the time you're reading this, I'm not going to be around. I don't know if you already know this, but I gave you my heart.

The trembling stopped, along with my breath. He was gone. Reuben was dead. I began shaking erratically, again, and continued my brave read.

I know you're probably really angry I did that, but I didn't have a choice. Even if I wasn't who I was, I'd still give you my heart, so no arguments.  

What? If he wasn't who he was, then who who was he? Or what was he? He said I was a beta, maybe he was a werewolf or something.

This is going to be really weird, but I'm your Guardian Angel, and I didn't do a very good job of it, to be frank. After all, I let a lot of stuff happen to you, and I even let you get hurt. Since I'm your Guardian Angel, that makes you my beta. Not any more though. I stop being your Angel once I've saved your life, hence the heart transplant. I might be back, but considering what a bad job I've done, I don't think I will be. I hope my heart works for you, and have a nice Christmas. I love you.


I dropped the piece of paper, and slammed myself against the wall. Tears were flooding my cheeks, and my sobs were extremely loud. Reuben was my Guardian Angel. Was. As if in not any more. He gave me his heart! How would he be back though? He didn't have a heart any more. Maybe heaven could save him or something. He'd left me with so many unanswered questions. 

"What's wrong?" Ollie asked, pulling me into a hug.

"He gave me his heart!" I sobbed, trembling with anxiety.

Ollie looked at me dumbly, completely shocked. Yeah, so was I. He rubbed my back, and told me everything would be okay. It bloody well wouldn't be okay! I'd lost Reuben for my own sake! Not that I had much of a say in it, but still.

I thought I'd lost Reuben before, due to Daniel. That had nothing on this.
