The days have been dragging on everyday for almost a month now December 20th . Everyday the same thing . I sometimes visit Maggie but never for long Jace always shows up and she start talking to him so I simply disappear I also don't like be around there because bad memories come back my doctors try stopping to talk to me but I'm always in a 'rush' to get somewhere or so I tell them . I have had no sign of Mathew I hang around Ryder a lot but it's always results in the same thing .. Sex . Now that it's almost winter break . I probably will have more time to think about things . Are you asking about my depression .. Yeah it's mostly gone I guess depends what day it is .
"Anna - bell ? " Ryder took me out of my thoughts. He does that when he thinks I'm to into them
"Yes .. Babe ? " I ask looking over at him . We were in the park sitting on a bench me with my knees to my chest while Ryder sits next to me eating a bag of potato chips .
"Something wrong ? " he ask putting a chip in his mouth
"Just cold " I mumble it was around 30 degrees and I was wearing a tank top with jeans with holes in them . Of course I could make this lie pass .
"Do you want my jacket ? " he speaks over the crumbling of his chip bag
"No . I'm fine ... " I speak ever so quietly like if I get any louder everything will shatter beneath my feet .
"Did something happen today ? " he touches my knee and smirks
"No .." I was dying to get off the topic so I said the thing he couldn't resist . "Hey why don't we go back your house and we can do something .. Fun " I smile and get up sliding my hand across his jaw bone .
"Get in the car " he says standing up . I smile and walk back to the car . The only thing that ever made me happy . This fails .
I'm sick of it. Sick of lung cancer, schizophrenia, insomnia, and this damn hospital. They're finally doing the surgery today, later though. And Jace was determined to spend every second he could with me. I honestly liked Jace. He's an amazing guy, but I didn't really have a crush on them. He had spent the night several times with me, and we stayed up and watched tv all night. I liked seeing Mat, but Jace knew me better as a person. Anna had only visited 5 times. I didn't even care about her that much anymore.
"Maggie?" Doctor Wilson said as he knocked on the door.
"Hm?" I said. I was sort of nervous, I knew he was here to retrieve me for the surgery.
"It's time. " he said. He wheeled me out and Jace followed close behind. We got to the room.
"Sorry Jace but you're gonna have to stay out here." Said doctor Wilson. He nodded and winked at me.
"You'll be fine sunshine" he said. I smiled at him as doctor Wilson wheeled me into the room and picked me up and moved me to another table. They stuck yet another needle in my arm and I was out.
-16 hours later-
I woke up in a completely white room. "Maggie?" I heard someone say.
"Hhhnnnggg..?" I replied.
I heard muffled laughter. "Hey, sunshine, you're alive. "
"Whaaa..? " I asked.
"Oh, the morphine. Right. Well your names Maggie, I'm Jace. Your cancer is gone, but you'll have to wear the oxygen mask for a few more months. 3, I think. You can go home tomorrow," he said. I understood about half of that, my mind lulling me back to sleep.
"Yughhh..." I said as I drifted into unconscious.
-the next day-
"Are you ready to come home?" Jace asked me.
"Yeah, but I haven't stood up in like weeks. Catch me if I fall, alright?" I said shakily.
"Yeah, okay. "
I slowly sat up and scooted to the edge of the bed. I placed one foot inside of my shoe, and the other foot in the other shoe.
I bit my lip and looked up at Jace. He smiled a little and took my arm over his shoulder. I stood up.
I was pretty wobbly at first, but with Jace's help I made it to the car.
"You have to wear this," said Jace as he handed me a blindfold.
"If you're kidnapping me I'm gonna kill you," I replied as I slipped it on and got in the car. He helped get my portable oxygen tank in there too, and he took off.
About 30 minutes later, he cut off the engine. I had no clue where we were, but he helped get me out of the car, and then he took my blindfold off.
We were in a huge field filled with all of my friends. Anna, Mat, Gracie, Raven, everyone. There was a huge tent in the middle.
"SURPRISE!" Everyone called at once, and attacked me in a giant group hug.
-1 hour later-
I finally had time to talk to Anna alone. I took her over to the side, and the first thing she said was, " Maggie I'm so sorry. But welcome home. I missed you," and hugged me tightly.
Scarlet ran over and took me under the tent for presents. We all stayed the night and watched the stars until we fell asleep. Everything was, for once, perfect.
Could it be?
