Little Miss Levine


5. Chapter 5

(My POV)

I woke up around 1am. I got up and wiped my forehead. I was sweating. I found my way into the kitchen.

"Oh, hey. What are you doing up?", I said. Matt was sitting at the table.

"Drinking, dying on the inside. You know. It's one of those nights.", he said sadly. There was a small bottle of Jack in his hand. I got a water out of the fridge.

"Adam told me about what you're going through. I'm really sorry. My parents were divorced. Well, my mom and my first stepdad were divorced.", I mentioned as I sat down across from him.

"Let's just talk about anything that we feel like we need to get off our chests.", he suggested.

"Okay,you first.", I offered.

"I've started getting up at times like this just so that I can drink. No one really knows, but I've started drinking the pain away. She got a lot of money, you know. She'll just blow it on herself. I don't know why I have to go through this. I put everything I could into my family, and now it's just ...gone.", he poured out to me and then took a shaky sip of the whiskey. "What's your story?", he asked.

"I've had some problems lately, and it seems like every time I get to a breaking point. And I've tried a lot of things to just end it. The time before last, I had a fight with my manager. I can't even remember what it was about. But anyway, I have prescription medicine for headaches, which constrains the blood vessels to reduce pressure. I took a bunch of them and tried to overdose. It almost killed me. I had to be rushed to the hospital. I tried a lot of things.", I said.

"And what was the last time?", he asked.

"I wanted to talk to you or Mickey about that, and I figured it would be better to talk to you. You're more serious. I feel like Adam should know about it.", I said as I pulled up my sleeve. "This time, I wasn't looking to kill myself. I really don't know what I was looking for."

Matt brushed his hand over my scars that I'm sure he could barely see in the dark.

"You hide it so well. You're always smiling and laughing. No one would ever know."

"What will Adam say?", I asked.

"I really don't know. I just want you to know that you are his number one priority now. He will love you no matter what. I promise he won't get mad.", he assured me. "Take a sip.", he whispered, sliding the bottle over. I took a gulp and slid the bottle back over.

"I said a sip, not drink the rest.", he laughed quietly, trying not to wake anyone.

"Oh, sorry. It all sounds the same to me.", I smiled.

"Thanks. I feel better. A lot better.", he said.

"Thank you, too. I feel better too." I hugged him and went to go back into the main room.

"Goodnight.", he said.

"Goodnight.",I replied.
