Our Destiny (Sequel to Fallen)

It's been a year since Karla started to remember, and everything looks perfect. It feels perfect. But the burden from her being an orphan, and both of her parents dying because of her, keeps adding more weight on her shoulders. When Justin and Karla find themselves in a situation they can't get out of, will their love be enough?


7. Infected

"Are you sure you're okay?" Justin asked me as he glanced at me while putting a spoonful of cereal in his mouth. "Mhhm." I smiled at him with a fake smile. The phone suddenly rang, making me almost jump from my chair. He smiled at me. "Relax, it's just the phone." I shook my head and stood up. "I'll get it." I said and went to answer the ringing phone. "Hello?" I answered. "Karla? Hi it's Pattie." I exhaled calmly, for a minute I thought it was Rhett. "Oh hey Pattie, how's your vacation?" They went on vacation a few days ago. I heard her sigh on the other line. "Is everything alright?" She answered me a few seconds later. "No, can I speak to Justin?" I nodded. "Yeah of course." I went and handed the phone to Justin. His complete face expression changed within seconds. After a few minutes he hung up the phone almost in tears. "Is everything alright?" I asked carefully. He shook his head. "Jaxon is in the hospital." "What? What happened?" He took a deep breath, trying to hold his tears back I guess. "A couple of days ago he cut himself on something in the sea, at then it didn't look that bad, they just cleaned it and put a bandage on it. A few hours ago he just collapsed. They went to the hospital, turns out the cut is really infected." I held my hand over my mouth, I was out of breath. "Oh my god." Little Jaxon. My poor little Jaxon. "I'm going down to LA as soon as possible. Are you coming?" I shook my head. "I really, really wish I could. But things are really busy at work at the moment, if I leave now I might get fired. I'm sorry." He nodded. "I understand. I might stay a few days even if he gets out of the hospital early, just to be with them you know?" "Yeah sure, it's fine. You need some time with your family." He went to the sink to wash his plate and then putting it the dishwasher. He went back to me on the couch and pecked my lips. "I'll go pack." I nodded. Then he was gone. Without really thinking about what I was doing I went and washed out my plate as well. All I could think about was Jaxon, and when I tried not thinking about him, my mind wondered back to Rhett.
