When We Run

Your life can change in a heartbeat.
I walked downstairs and when I came back, everyone was dead and everything was over. But I survived and I ran.


7. 7.

"Get him some water." I say to Evan as Sam sits down on the couch. Evan just sits down, propping his feet up on an amp and puts his hands behind his head. I scowl at him and get Sam some water myself, which he gulps down.

"So what happened, blondie?" Evan asks, not really that interested.

Sam frowns at Evan and glances at me. "How did you find this asshole?"

"He kind of attacked me then brought me here. I think we have to put up with him." I sigh. "What happened?"

"Well," Sam shifts in his seat. "I was in maths and you weren't back at class, so I told sir I was going to the bathroom and went to Mrs Jose's room to look for you. Then all of a sudden, the maths side of the school blew up so I went over to see if anybody was okay. And then your side of the school blew up and I didn't know what to do, so I ran into that hideout-"

"I was in there." I frown. "You must have gone after I left."

"I looked for you-"

"Oh how romantic ." Evan smiles bitterly.

I scowl at him. Why is he always so bitter to people he's only just met? I tell Sam he should probably sleep and he does, straight away. Evan and I just sit in silence, not speaking to one another, but Evan is looking smug; I'm just annoyed. This is the first time I've seen him like this. Usually, he's just moody, but suddenly he's all arrogant.

"You do get pissed off easily don't you?" he asks.

"What's your problem?" I ask, turning around and facing him, sitting against the wall furthest away from him.

He laughs. "Oh come on, Holly, he's annoying me. Am I not allowed to be a little bit arrogant?"

"How is he annoying you?"

"Oh Holly are you okay? Oh Holly, I went looking for you. Holly do you need anything?" he mimics Sam. "Seriously, how do you date that guy?" 

"He's not my boyfriend!" I protest.

"I don't think he's clear on that information."

"Just shut up, okay?" I say and turn away from him, ending the conversation.

He laughs. "Well I'm going to go for a walk. I can't even stand the sexual tension between you and this guy-"

"Shut up!" I chuck a clock at him as he walks out, but it's not very effective.

After a while, Sam wakes up and comes to join me on the floor. We sit talking for a while. It's nice without Evan in here, we can just be honest like always. We talk about how scared we are. We talk about how upset we are about our families most likely being dead. We try phoning them all, but the call doesn't even go through.

I sigh. "I am exhausted." I say.

Sam and I both lie down, right there on the floor. He slips a friendly arm around my shoulder and I rest my head on his chest. It's like we're both telling each other that we're safe now and that it's okay because we have each other. It's just a shame that we have Evan too.
