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...


17. 'You're one heck of a beta.'

I started getting pains. Some in my stomach, some in my chest. The ones in my chest were like my heart beating too fast, and it got all tight. The ones in my stomach made me throw up occasionally, and I ate twice as much as what I used to. It was really weird, being able to consume that much food and be fine. But I was never fine. After a few minutes, I'd just randomly vomit, no warning whatsoever. 

I didn't tell anybody. It would just be a temporary thing, and I'd be fine. Just a bit of a stomach bug. They'd only find out once they discovered the empty cupboards, which I would blame on Ollie and Cade. Bella hadn't talked to me about the situation, and I started worrying again. I had too much on my plate. Literally. 

I was throwing up again, it was the sixteenth of December. I was trying to hold my hair back, and aim in the toilet at the same time. No one heard me, so I was safe. Once I was sure I was done, I flushed, and sat back. The tiles of the bathroom floor were cold, but I didn't care. The coldness of it was relaxing. I leant my head on the sink, and sighed.

I leaned over to flush the toilet again, and regretted it. My heart sped up, and no oxygen seemed to be getting inside of me. It was almost like asthma, but not quite. I squeezed my eyes shut, willing for it to go away. I swallowed deep breaths of air, but none of it seemed to get to my lungs. My heart suddenly stopped, and I slipped into unconsciousness. 

My body felt like it weighed a ton, but I didn't really care. Someone else was carrying me, I had no idea who, but that was their problem. My chest still felt tight as I was gently laid down.

"I love you," they whispered in my ear. 

It was a deep voice, so it was a guy. It was either my Dad, Ollie or Cade. But it didn't sound like any of them. It sounded like Reuben. Why would he be carrying me? At least my stomach had calmed down for the time being. 

The person who I assumed was Reuben, traced a cross just about where my heart was, and it calmed down. My chest loosened. I was still unconscious though.

"That'll help you for now. Tori, you're one heck of a Beta," he mumbled, and left me.

Beta? Isn't that the second letter of the Greek alphabet? And in groups, isn't the Alpha the leader, then the Beta is the seconder? What was he on about, and where had he taken me? How did his touch help the pain? There were way too many questions for me to even consider answering.

Instead, I just lay there, and I felt a prick on my arm. Someone was injecting something into me, and all of my senses went black.
