10. The Call

~Alexis's P.O.V.~

I awoke but my eyes haven't opened yet. I just lay there feeling relaxed until...

"Stay, stay, stay. I've been loving you for quite some time, time, time.-" That's the ring tone for my cell phone. It's the chorus of ' Stay Stay Stay' by Taylor Swift. My favorite song. Probably if I ignore it the person will just hang up and let me relax.

"-You think that it's funny when i'm mad, mad, mad. But I think it's better if we both stay." Finally. I guess the person hung up.

And just as I was getting relaxed again it started ringing. Come on, just give up already. Finally the person hung up. But karma felt the the need to get its revenge. I was just gonna ignore it when...

"Just answer the damn phone already." Shouted somebody making jump and fall on to them. Or should i say him. I know knew the voice belonged to Brad. By the time we got up my phone had stopped ringing.

"Owww. You made me hit my elbow on the.. umm.. something." i answered truthfully. I had no idea what I hit my elbow on. But that was quickly answered...

"That something was my nose. I think its bleeding. Is it ble-" he was cut off by my cell.

"Oh my Gosh. What did i ever do?" i cried a little to dramatically before answering the phone. "Hello" i said answering the phone.

"Hello, can i speak to Miss Alexis Devney please?"

"This is she"

"This is Farrow Brookes Hospital. Your father had been brought here, apparently after coughing up blood. He will need to stay in the hospital for while but you can come visit him anytime."

"O-okay. Thank y-you" i replied with my voice breaking as i began to cry. i stared at my phone expecting someone to call and say it was just a joke.

"Hey, what happened?" Brad asked coming over to me and wrapping his arms around me into a hug.

"I don't feel like talking about." I replied getting of his warm embrace. I walked over to my bed and lied down.

I watched as Brad slowly got up and headed towards the door closing it on his way out. I couldn't hold out any longer and i finally let out the sobs that i had been holding back. I cried for about an hour or so before falling asleep.

I awoke to the smell of Popeyes. I checked the time. 2:00 p.m. I got out of bed and headed downstairs to see Brad eating a box of chicken tenders from Popeyes like his life depended on it.

"Hey, I want some" i said causing his head to turn in my direction.

"Oh you're awake" he said staring at me.

"What is there something on my face"

"No. Ummm you want" he said referring to the chicken tenders.

"Yes. I'm starving" I replied walking over to the table and sitting next to him on the chair. "Why are you still here" i asked.

"Well it seems like I'm not wanted. So I'll just take my chicken and be on my way."

"No don't leave. It's just most people would have left already if i fell asleep."

"Well I'm not most people."

After we finished eating I told him what happened and he took me to the hospital to see my dad.

*At the hospital*

We walked to the desk.

"Excuse me. What room is Max Devney in. I'm his daughter" i said to the nurse behind the counter.

"Room 327. It's on the third floor." she replied with a smile.

We walked to where the elevator were and waited for it to come down. When it came down, we went into the elevator and pressed the button for the third floor.

I was really nervous to see my dad. I barely ever see him and we never talk anymore. I was also scared to what i might see. I honestly didn't know what to expect. I guess the nervousness and fear showed on my face because Brad grabbed my hand giving me a reassuring squeeze and a small smile. We exited the elevator and went to room 327. I slowly opened the door afraid of what i might see. We walked into the room and I gripped his hand tighter when i saw my father. He was pale, really pale. He was looking down so he didn't see is come in.

"Daddy" i whispered. He looked up and I smiled at him.

"Alie, what are you doing here." he said causing my smile to disappear. "You must leave."

"Why" i asked

"Just leave" he said firmly.

"Why? You are in a hospital and i, your only daughter. The only family you have left came to see you and you tell me to leave. Your never home. Your don't even know anything that has been going on. And the one time i get to see you, you tell me to leave. What happened to you? What happened to my father? Because you, surely are not him." i said. " Let's go Brad"

I turned around ready to storm out of the room, when i bumped into somebody. I stumbled back a little. I looked up and saw a beautiful woman with black hair and hazel eyes. I turned back around.

"Who is this" i asked rudely.

"This is Mary, my girlfriend."

"Okay i get it now. So this is why you wanted me to leave. After mom and Tara (Alexis's sister) died, you would say I'm the number one girl in your life but you don't even care about me. I bet all this time you were with her. You were never working late. I now know where i stand." I said

"That is just wrong" Brad said. We turned to leave.

"Alexis wait. I do care about you and i do love-"

"Cut the bullsh*t dad. We all know you don't." i said cutting him off.

With that i ran out of the room. I ran down the flight of stairs and outside. I just ran until I got home but i didn't stop there. I knew Brad was in his car and would come to my house to look for me. I got inside and grabbed my drawing equipment. Then i ran behind my house and into the woods. I ran to the clearing 

(the one from chapter four: A Special Request. I talked about it in the beginning of the chapter.) I sat against the tree and began to draw.
