26. Broken Promises

DEMI

 

It's been two months since I moved to London and started at Bromley, and I must say it's been pretty hard having Joe so close again. I thought I had seen the end of him a year ago. But all good things must come to an end. I stopped cutting myself a few months after he moved here, but when I moved to the SAME freaking school, it was hard not to start again. I've been wearing long sleeves to cover it up, but I think Niall knows. I don't want him to know.

 

I promised Ally I didn't like him, but it's hard not to. He's so cute and kind and he makes me feel like a million bucks. Every time I see Ally my arms itch, because I feel like I'm letting her down, like I'm lying to her. And whenever I see Niall and my heart races... I just wish I could cry. Ally's such a good friend, I wish it wasn't like this. She's so lucky, I just want that again.

 

Quietly, I push a chair up against the door and go into the bathroom, popping a sleeping pill so I can go to sleep. I sit on my bed and wait for the pill to kick in. Fifteen minutes go by, and nothing. I take another. Ten minutes, still not tired. I check the label, no more than six in twenty four hours. I'm alright to take a few more. I pop two more. I just wish I could sleep forever, never have to see any of them agian and feel that guilt that's always nagging in my stomach. Twenty minutes have passed, two more. I wish all of it would just go away. I wish everyone would go away. I wish I could go away. Ten minutes, three more. Everything is foggy, and I can't see my hand in front of me. I try to lie down in my bed, but I hit the floor instead. That's okay, it's hot and dark, and the cold wood feels nice on my skin. I think my eyes are closed... or maybe it's just really, really dark. It feels like I'm falling down a well that never ends. This is so nice...

 

ALLY

 

"I'll go get Demi! It's exciting having a movie night without the guys for once. Except Harry still has yet to ask you out, Jade!" I said, grinning at her as I skipped out of the room and down the hall to Demi's room.

 

"Demi!" I sing, knocking on her door. There's no reply, and I knock again. Still nothing. I jimmy the handle and it twists, but there's something in the way. The bathroom door must be open. I take a step back and slam my shoulder into the door. A searing pain tingles up my arm, and I step into the room as the door swings open. Demi is fast asleep on the floor, pale from the cold drifting in her open window. I chuckle at how cute she is when she sleeps and step over her, closing the window.

 

I look down at Demi and see she's wearing this pale, fairy blue lipstick. It's a... new shade for her. I bend down and push a hair from her face, it almost looks as if her eyes are open. As I move the hair from her face, I feel how cold her skin is. And then, her piercing brown eyes are revealed from behind her hair, dull and wide open.

 

Oh, God. I felt my heart race as I carefully press the back of my hand to her cheek. I wince and pull my hand back quickly. She's as cold as ice. I feel my breath catch as I hesitently touch my hand to her wrist, counting to ten and feeling her heart beat. But there's nothing there. My mouth falls open and I don't know if I'm going to throw up or scream. And then I scream. I jump back up onto the bed and scream over and over and over, as loud as I can. My voice cracks every time I look at her wide eyes, and I turn and face the wall, my breath heaving in my throat.

 

"What's going on? Holy shit!" Harry screams, standing in the doorway and looking down at Demi's body. I'm shaking like a wet dog in the snow, my heart pounding like I'm on ecstacy. Harry's eyes are glassy as he shouts for help and walks over to me, shaking on the bed, and grabs me. His warm arms wrap around me and he lifts me up. I wrap my arms around his waist and bury my head in his neck, closing my eyes tightly. But every time I close my eyes I see Demi's pale face. I let out a tight sob, feeling Harry's speeding heartbeat in his chest.

 

There are footsteps and more shouting, this time it's Ed. I'm passed over to Ed, and I stain his shirt with tears. He's running down the hall with me in his arms, and I can feel his laboured breath on my neck. This can't be happening. I squeeze my eyes shut, hoping that if I squeeze them tighter I won't see her face. Then I hear an Irish accent, worry and confusion. I try hard to block my ears from what Ed is saying to Niall. Niall's arms are shaky as he takes me from Ed and slowly carries me to his room, where he flicks out the light, sets me in his bed, and pulls the blankets over us as he climbs in next to me.
