Knives and Pens

Joshua Kimble goes to a school filled with homophobes. His life is kind of good, his parents totally ignore him and so do the students at Grether High School. He has a house keeper that acts like the mother Kimberly, his real mom, never could be. He gets a $100 allowance from his dad. Life could be no worse. Or Could It?

Travis's POV

I wait for the ambulance. Oh god their is so much blood. I press on the wounds, I can't even tell how many their are. I hear sirens. Final, the ambulance pulls up. I am covered in blood. And sobbing. "Help." I whisper as the EMT's jump out and run over. The shout to each other and the people pulling up. One pulls me away from Joshua. "Are you hurt?" I shake my head, she must have asked me 10 times.

She leads me over to the ambulance and puts me inside. "Where is Joshua? Is he ok? Will he live? Oh, god their was so much blood." She places a calming hand on my shoulder. "Shh, he is ok. He lost a lot of blood but he will be fine." She wipes my face off. Then I realized I wiped my hands on my face, smearing blood all over. I look in a mirror on the wall of the van. I cringe, I look like the bloody grim reaper in corporeal form. Tears made runny marks under my eyes and I even got it in my hair. Oh, god, it is all Joshua's blood. Even my lips are red. I wash my face and hands, but my arm, shirt and some of my pants will be saved until I get home. My phone has bloody finger prints. I wash that off and call my mom.

"Travis, are you okay?"

"Yeah mom, I went into shock and had a minor breakdown and will be at the hospital soon, see you their, right? Your set in the ER?" I look over at the EMT in the ambulance with me.

"Yes, sweetie, I am even assigned to Joshua, I told them I know him through you and I am waiting outside, I can see his ambulance, got to go, hugs." She hangs up. We pull into the hospital a few minuets later. I jump out of the ambulance and run over to my mom. She gasps when she sees me. "Your not hurt?" I shake my head and she runs over to Joshua. I fallow slowly. They roll him away and a nurse puts me in a waiting room. I sit and wait.

I must fall asleep because I jerk awake as a hand shakes me. "Wha-?" I open my eyes to see a nurse in scrubs. She hands me a clip board. "You friends parents haven't shown up so can you fill out what you know?" I nod and rub my eyes, she walks away. I fill out what I know. Not much. I bring it up to her. "Sorry, I don't know much. His parents work a lot so.." I shrug and trail off. She gives me a sympathetic look.

I sit down and try to stay awake, I can't I'm to tired. I wake up to more shaking, lighter and smaller. I look down and yawn. Eliot is standing by my feet. "Maman, this is Travis. He is Joshua's friend." Eliot smiles up at me. "Wow, el, you look totally different not covered in flower." I reach down and try rub his head, he ducks away "What is with you and the hair." he tries to fix it but makes it worse. I look up at his mother, a bear of a woman. I would hate to be someone who harmed her baby.

"I am Emeline Ursatum. I am Joshua's housekeeper, you know Eliot I see." I nod and she smiles. "I'm Travis. I would give you my hand to shake but it might have blood on it, sorry." She shakes her head and walks over to the counter, I lay my head back and relax.

I am on low, all the way. I am so close to sleep again when I hear yelling. I open my eyes and look at Emeline. "I AM DE CLOSEST THING THE BOY HAT TA A MOTHA!" She has a Cajun accent when she is emotional and yelling. I love it. I pull Eliot into the seat next to me as we watch his mother and the nurse. "Please, calm down. You are not his blood relative so you can not see him. Please take a seat." We can't hear what Eliot's mother is saying, he says "Now we get to see him, Maman is scary and you have to listen to her when she is quiet like that." True to his prediction we are shown into a room with Joshua on the bed. I rush over and grab his hand. He doesn't open his eyes or move. "Joshua? Boy, if you die, I am going to kill you." He faintly smiles and whispers. "Right back at you, boy." I smile in relief. Emeline moves a chair closer so I sit down and still hold his hand.

I thank her and she pulls out some knitting and gets to it. Thank god that Joshua was alive. "Hey, Trav, how long have I been in this white jail?" He asks it faintly as if he is tired. I look at my watch and say "Looks like over 5 hours." A nurse walks in and checks some stuff. "Good thing your awake, we need some information from you."

"I will take care of that." Emeline says and sets aside her knitting. "Fallow me, please." She fallows the nurse to do the paper work. After they leave I lean close to Joshua and kiss him gently on the lips, Eliot doesn't notice. I pull away and he sighs happily and falls asleep. I grip his hand. He is never leaving my sight until we leave here. I know now that I am falling, and I am falling hard for him.....
