14. Letting Go

I woke up and took in my surronding. I was at Brad's cabin and i was starving. I nudged him slightly but he did't wake up. I pushed him harder and he finally woke up.

"What" he said drawing out the a in an annoyed voice. 

"Go make me food im hungry." i said.

"No, do it yourself" he replied. 

"If you don't go, i'll push you off the bed." I replied smugly.

"No" he said opening his eyes, eyeing me skeptically.

I shrugged acting like a was going to get up, but instead pushed Brad with all my might. He ended up grabbing my arm and pulling me down with him. And that is how I ended up on the floor, on top of him, again.

"Ugh" I said getting off Brad. I climbed onto the bed . "I think my ankle hit the night stand on my way down. " I said feeling the searing pain.

"Let me see" Brad said, kneeling by the bed and taking my foot. He touched my ankle and I winced.

"Ow, that hurts " I said pulling my foot away from him. I looked at my ankle seeing it was a little swollen and red.

"Now get me some ice." I staid pointing my finger at the door. "And breakfast" I added

"Umm no breakfast, only ice" Brad said.

"You realize this" I said pointing at my ankle, "happened because you" I pointed an acussing finger at Brad "wouldn't make me breakfast. So I suggest you get your tiny little butt iin the kitchen and make me food." 

"You" Brad copied my actions, pointing a finger at me. "Didn't have to push me."

"I'm hungry dammit" I yelled, suprising the both of us.

"Fine" Brad said turning on his heels. "Do you need some tampons too" he mumbled under his breath. 

"What was that?" I asked although I heard him clearly.

"Nothing" he said, turning his head and giving me a forced smile. 

"I thought so" I said smirking.

A minute later Brad returned with an ice pack. While he cooked I hopped to the bathroom, grabbed the first aid kit from under the sink and hopped back to bed. I sat putting a pillow under my swollen ankle and carefully put the ice back on it. I rummaged throght the first aid kit looking for some bandages. Once I found them I wrapped it tightly around my ankle, wincing as I did, so the swelling could go down. I put my foot back on the pillow once again and put the ice back on it as Brad came in. He was carrying two platesof chocolate chip pancakes. Yummm, my favorite.

"This looks good. Thanks so much." I told Brad before I started shovelling the food into my mouth.

I didn't care if i looked like a pig, I was hungry and it was only Brad so it didn't really matter.  I looked up and I saw him with a sad smile on his face. He was looking at my foot and I immeadiiately knew what  was wrong. He felt bad abount the ankle thing. 

"I'm sorry" he said, looking up at me. 

"It's ok. It wasn't really your fault. I should have gotten my lazy butt up and gotten some food." I said trying to make him feel better. 

"No, I should've gotten up. It would've have been the polite thing to do." he countered. 

"No, it was my fault." I replied.

"No, it  wasn't." he said.

"Yes it was. Now stop saying it wasn't. You don't have to take the blame for everything you know. I swear, underneath that big, strong, tough outer shell, there's a giant teddy bear inside." I said smiling up at him.

I guessed that cheereed him up because he smiled back at me. And it wasn't a sad smile, it was a genuine one.  When we finished eating I went to get up but he stopped me.

"You need to rest your ankle." he said. 

"Well I did and now have to put some pressure on it before my foot goes numb and I can never walk again" I stated with a serious face. 

Brad luaghed but let me get up. I winced with every step and limped all the way to the kitchen. I put my plate in the sink and sat on the couch.

"Gosh, if I knew the sink was that far I would've let you do it for me." I said panting. 

Brad laughed, "That was only like five feet Lex. I swear your so unhealthy.

"Hey, my foot is killing me. Can we go to your house?" I said putting on my sandals.

"Sure" he said putting his sneakers on too.

We walked outside and I waited while he closed the door. He started walking away but I just stood there. And turned around and stared at me for a while, raising a questioning eyebrow.

"Can I get a piggyback ride please." I said as sweetly as I could. I made a puppy dog face knowing he wouldn't be able to resist mine. No one could, it was perfect. I spent three years perfecting it. 

"Fine" he said walking back to me. I jumped on his back, careful not hit my ankle on any nearby trees or the cabin. He carried me to his car and lowered me in. We'd come back to get my car in a day or so, when my ankle was okay.

When we arrived we saw Maddison kissing some random dude. I looked at Brad and his expression turned to angry really fast. We parked in the driveway and we got out the car. They didn't notice us until Brad slammed his car door shut. Maddison turned around and froze as she realized what was happening. I was still confused on everything. It wasn't until we got closer to them until I realized who the guy was. It was Dylan, Brad's best friend. Well, besides me.

"Maddison go inside with Alexis." Brad said camly but I could tell he was mad. She didn't move and just stood there. "NOW!" he yelled, causing her to flinch. She ran inside and I did the best I could to get inside. 

"Maddison" I called. I coullde hear her running up the stairs o that's were I went. It was really hard so ended up hoping which was easier and harded at the same tme. It's complicated but back to the task at hand. I heard her cryng from inside her room. I went inside and saw her laying on her bed with her face in the pillow. I sat on the bed rubbing her back. So sat up and looked at me.

"Do you think that he'll make us break up" she asked through sniffles.

"To be honest he might. he seemed really mad. You should have told him." I said.

"I know. We have been meaning to for a while now." Maddision said.

"Hold on, a while now. How long have you two been dating?" I questioned.

"Three months before you moved here." she admmitted.  

"Seriosly and you never told him. What about when you were raped? Does Dylan know about that?" I asked. She looked at me sheepishly but remained silent. "Wait, did he rape you?" I asked. she nodded. "So, the baby is his? Did you tell anyone yet?" 

"Yes and no. Now will you stop boombarding me with questions?" Maddision said. "Lexi, there's something I need to tell you." she said looking scared.

"What is it?" I asked.

"The reason I hadn't told anyone about it is beacause I had a miscarriage. I had woken up in the middle of the night and there was so much blood. I changed and called a cab to the hospital and they examined me there. They told me I had a miscarriage. I had to relax so I spent the rest of the day shopping, hoping it would fill the part of me that felt so empty." Maddison confessed. 

I pulled her into a hug and she cried into my shoulder. I feel so bad. I had just yelled at her that day and didn't even bother to ask her what happened. And she had lost her baby. I can't even begin to imagine how she felt. We had to talk about everything now. 

"Maddi, we got to talk to Brad and Dylan and talk about everything that happened. " I said

"No we can't. Everything is going to turn out horrible." she replied.

"Well we have to tell them sooner or later." I argured.

"How about sooner?" she said hopefully. 

"Either you tell them or I will, they desrve to know the truth." I replied.

"Fine, let's go" she said.

"We better hurry, before they kill eachother." I said jokingly.

"Yeah"  she said and we rushed downstairs. My ankle was slowly getting better so I had stomped limping but it still hurt. 

They were in the middle of a heated arguement. 

"Guys" i said trying to get their attention but they didn't hear me. "Guys" I yelled but they ignored me.

So I did the only reasonable thing I could think of. I screamed but not any scream. You know the ones where you know the person is really in trouble. Yeah, that one. They quickly snapped theri necks in Maddison and I's direction. They both had worried looks in their eyes. I kind of felt guilty but not too guilty because they had ignored me. 

"Alexis don't ever do that again unless something is really wrong." Brad chatised. I just rolled my eyes.

"We need to speak to you guys." Maddison said, finally speaking up. 

"Well can't it wait we were in the middle of something very important." Brad said.

"No it can't." I replied. "Now get inside." I commanded but they just stared at me. "Now" I yelled as loud as I could. 

They walked inside and all four of us stood in the living room just looking at each other.

"Well....-" Maddison started.
