40. Chapter 40
I couldn't think straight. Why would she do this to me? How could she do this to me? I wasn't angry. Just hurt.
I had to get Bill's side of the story.
I stepped up to Bill and Tom's porch and knocked on the door.
Bill answered, looking slightly surprised.
"Alex told me." I said, simply.
His eyes widened.
"I'm not mad. I just-.....I just want to know-" I trailed off, not knowing what to say or how to ask it.
"I wasn't intentionally trying to get in between you guys.... I just... I care about her..." His eyes showed me into a world of hurt that I wasn't able to understand.
"It's over though...she doesn't care about me like she cares about you." He said, looking away.
"Why would she have kissed you then? If she didn't care about you?" It probably wasn't right. I was just fueling an already dying fire. I should be angry. I should punch this b*stard in the face and leave Alex. I should be furious. But I wasn't.
"Maybe she missed you." He said with no hope in his eyes.
"That's not like Alex."
"To miss you?"
"No, to-" My phone ringing interrupted me mid-sentence.
I pulled it out of my pocket and put it up to my ear.
"Andy?" I heard Ashley's voice on the other end. He sounded desperate, sad, scared.
"What's up?" I asked, already feeling dread in the pit of my stomach.
"Alex is in the hospital."
"She tried to commit suicide."
