5. Remembering

I lay against Louis. He has his arms wrapped around me. We're watching tv.

"Annika. Why are you so perfect?", Louis says. 

"Trust me. I'm not", I say.

He chuckles then kisses the top of my head. I can't believe we were separated by me trying to kill myself, because Louis broke up with me. I want to ignore the fact and move past it. But there's more I don't seem to remember. I push away the thought for now. I feel like my life is perfect. My phone vibrates: 

Hey Annika can we talk? 

Uh, sure. When? 

In an hour, I really need you to hear what I have to say...

I see Louis looking down at me.

"You okay", he says.

"Yeah", I say.

I go to get up but he pulls me back down.

"I need to go somewhere let go", I say.

He groans,

"Fine."

He kisses me before letting go. I pull away and walk upstairs to brush out my hair. I go to the bathroom and brush my hair, straightening it afterward. I brush my teeth and put on my makeup. I slip on my purple converses and walk downstairs.

"I'll be back in an hour Lou", I say.

He stands up and walks over to me.

"Kay, and don't hurt yourself", he says.

I roll my eyes and I hug him. I part from him and walk out the door. I love Louis to death and I didn't want to hurt him. I call Jake.

"Hey beautiful", he says.

"Hey can you pick me up?", I say.

"Sure be there in five", he says.

I hang up and sit on the lawn waiting for Jake. I miss talking and spending time with him. I didn't want to lose Jake, but I might. He pulls up and I stand up walking to his car, opening the door.

"Hi Jake", I say.

"Hey Annika", he says then pulling out of the driveway. He drives to the park nearby. We get out and he puts his arm around my waist. I walk with him to a bench. We sit down and he just stares at me for awhile.

"What is it you wanted?", I ask.

"Well I know I wouldn't tell you. But, when you and Louis first dated, you were hurt a lot. You know the scars on your arms", he says.

I nod,

"Cole did it he was jealous of Louis and cut your arms and legs. Then he stabbed you in the stomach", he says.

I thought the dream I had about it wasn't real. But it was, all my dreams were real. Then all the memories flash through my mind. I remember it and everything else. I feel tears fall from my face. I cover my face with my hands.

"I remember", I say barely above a whisper.

I look at Jake,

"You love me Jake. More than friends", I say.

He nods.

"I'll always", he says.

Before I knew it he has his lips against mine and we're moving in sync. I pull away.

"Jake I can't. I'm dating Louis", I say standing up.

I could leave now. I can walk.

"Again! Annika he's the reason you were in the coma", he says.

I know he is, but I love him.

"Jake, please don't yell", I say.

"No! Annika you need to be loved and Louis isn't right for you", he yells, this time I flinch.

I hate when he yells, he never yells.

"Jake, please don't", I say.

I didn't want to ruin our friendship. But it's going to end, he'll ruin it.

"I'm leaving Jake", I say.

But he grabs my wrist before I can walk away.

"Our friendship is over", he says.

That hurts.

"Fine."

I walk off leaving him behind. I feel myself crying. Of course when he says our friendship is over, he means it. I reach the flat and open the door, slamming it behind me. I go upstairs and doing the same with my door. I hate myself. 

 

•Louis's POV•

 

  Annika comes in slamming the door. I'm worried, I go and follow her. I stop at her door and I hear her crying.

"Annika can I come in?", I say.

"Go away! You ruined my friendship with Jake!", she yells.

Ouch that stings.

"How?", I say.

She doesn't say anything. I walk in anyway. She has her head buried in her pillow.

"Annika", I say.

"Just go Louis. Give me some space to think", she says.

"Kay", I say quietly and walk out.
