I can't just let her leave. I know she asked for a break, But you can't just let someone you love walk away just like that. I know I messed up, I know I shouldn't have hooked up with Claire. After Izzy told me what she did, I lost all respect for her. I didn't want to just sit there and be sad the whole time. So I called Claire to cheer me up.
"Babe, don't worry about her, she will come back." Claire says while grabbing my hand and pulling me closer.
"No Claire, she won't just "come back". She's feckless." I say while pulling myself away from her.
"Whatever." Claire shoots at me with a very Bilious look. I roll my eyes and get up and walk over to the front door, Claire follows. I open the door and stand there waiting for her to walk out." You just want me to leave?" She says sounding confused. I nod. She walks out with her arms crossed and says "YOU'LL REGRET THIS!" I slam the door on her face, I really don't need her coming in here and making more drama. My main focus is finding Izzy, and to bring her home again. I know she may feel this isn't her home, But I over heard my mom and dad talking about keeping her. Even though she's supposed to go to prison in a week. Maybe that's why she left, so she could hide. So the police couldn't find her and take her to prison. Maybe she was scared.
"Do you have a plan?" Julia says while entering the front room. I smile knowing she wants to actually wants to help me get Izzy back.
"No." I say insistently feeling sad, Feeling like a failure. Izzy is my girlfriend, I'm supposed to protect her. I fail do that, I fail at everything.
"Maybe we should sleep on it, You know think about it then do it. Maybe she will be at school tomorrow." Julia shrugs. I nod and make my way up to my room, sleep may help me. I lay down and think of every place she could be, I listen to the rain hitting the window like little pellet. Sounding as if they might break the glass any minute. I close my eyes, then a image of Izzy being shot by Ryan pops in to my head, The rain reminding me of gun shots. I sit up panicking, I need to find her tonight, Not tomorrow, Not next week, Now. I get out of bed and throw on a shirt and some pants, I open my door and my house is quiet, I peek into Julia's room to see if she's asleep. She's passed out. I don't want to ruin her sleep, I close her door quietly. I grab my jacket and keys from the front door, I try to think of where to look first. The school? no. The mall? no. Uh, The airport? no. Why is it so hard to think of where my girlfriend is hiding, my phone starts ringing, I reach in to my pocket and answer as I'm opening the door to my car.
"Hello?" I say kinda wondering why someone is calling me this late at night, it was a private number.
'hey.' I know that voice, it's...IT'S IZZY!
"Izzy where are you? I'll come get you." I can here her breathing, she sounds almost as if she's crying.
'Vic, I didn't call for you to come save me. I called to.....To say goodbye.' why would she be saying goodbye now? she already did.
"No, Izzy, please just tell me where you are. If you don't want to come home, then fine. I want to say goodbye in person." She stops breathing for a second, then starts slowing breathing.
'Fine, I'm at the school' I turn the corner fast, Heading for the school. I hang up when I see her sitting on a bench out front, She's smashing a phone. Maybe its the one she just called me from? I stop my car and jump out, I run over to her. I hug her, tightly, never wanting to let go.
"Izzy." I say threw my tears.
"yes?" Her voice makes me melt, I can't stand to loose her.
"Please stay." I let to words slip out of my lips.
