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...

18. 'I told them what you told me.'

I awoke with a different kind of pain in my chest. It wasn't the one I had earlier, it was just sore, like there was a cut there or something. My eyes fluttered open to see a pair of green eyes staring down at me.

"She's awake!" Ollie declared, leaning away from my face.

Suddenly, everyone was gathered around me. By everyone, I mean Ollie, Mum, Dad, Cade and Bella. What had happened? 

I looked around the room, and realised I was in the hospital. I was in a bed with crisp white sheets, and light reflected off every surface. The brightness hurt my eyes, and I squinted, trying to see through it. None of this made sense. I was actually so confused it was unbelievable. 

A doctor came in, asked me how I was feeling, and all of that stuff. Apparently I was out for two days, making it December the eighteenth. My entire body ached from being immobile for too long, and I wanted to go for a walk. I wasn't allowed to though, so I just lay there, counting the tiles. 

"Is anyone going to explain what happened?" I interrupted whatever my Mum was saying.

They all looked at Bella, and she blushed. She nodded, and they just left, except for Bella. Okay. 

"Hey, Tori," she said sheepishly. 

"What happened?" I asked, gritting my teeth.

"Okay, so you passed out. Reuben came over, asking where you were, so I sent him up to your room, and he found you in the bathroom. He brought you here, and got a doctor. It turns out you had an abnormal heart murmur," she told me.

"Had?" I questioned, not really sure on how they'd cure a heart murmur.

"You had a heart transplant," she said directly. 

I had a heart transplant!? Oh my God! Who gave me the heart? Probably someone I didn't even know. Hopefully. Would everything be okay, then? I assumed that the vomiting was to do with that too, but Bella continued.

"And you were pregnant. The baby was miscarried. I told them what you told me," she looked torn, telling me all of this.

I really hoped Daniel did not know about that. But... I had a baby... No, it was miscarried for a reason. No fifteen year old is fit to be a mother. It was miscarried because it knew I wouldn't abort it. I would never abort a baby, no matter what age I was. This was a bit too much for me to cope with; I broke down crying. Tears fell easily and without permission. 

Bella pulled me into a hug, rubbing my back soothingly. I tried blinking back the tears, but they were falling way too quickly for it to work. On the bright side, I only had one week until Reuben told me everything.
