"Spencer, what the hell?" -Justin yelled when it was him who appeared at the door. Obviously he couldn't see I was the one being attacked.
"Help!" -I was able to get out of my lungs that were barely moving.
You could see Justin's face turn from concern to anger. He ran over to me and pulled Dylan off throwing him into the wall. It didn't end at that.
"You don't ever touch her again. Understand?" -Justin was right up in Dylan's face. Dylan thought about it and replied with,
Justin lost it. He clenched his fist hard and aimed right for Dylan's face. He stumbled but didn't fall. Blood started dripping from his nose. Justin didn't keep his eye off him and eventually Dylan just left the room.
"Oh my god, are you okay Spence....SPENCER!"
I couldn't speak or think. I was in shock. I couldn't even move. Then suddenly I blacked out.
I opened my eyes to find Justin's eyes locked on me beside a hospital bed. They were watery and it looked as if he were crying earlier. He noticed I was awake and pulled his chair closer to the bed as he started stroking my hair. I may have been in shock but I do remember everything.
"Why am I here?" -I asked him. My throat killed.
"You passed out after Dylan-" -he didn't finish his sentence.
"You um-" -I cut him off.
"I do remember Justin. I remember everything."
He just sort of frowned.
"I'm sorry I couldn't get there sooner. I let you down."
He really thought it was his fault?
"Justin it's not your fault. Not mine either. You can't control these things. I'd like to sleep now."
He half smiled and kissed me on the forehead.
"Feel better," -he said before leaving the room. My mother then walked in.
"Oh Spencer what the hell happened?" I didn't really know what to say.
"It was Dylan mom. He tried to..."
I couldn't explain any further but she understood. She was speechless as well.
"We'll handle this. Press charges, anything."
I didn't like the idea of getting involved with him again.
"Mom can I just sleep and we can talk later."
I really just needed to sleep to escape myself right now.
I wasn't in the hospital long. I got out a couple hours later as I was only there because I passed out from shock. I still can't believe I dated that moron. I kept thinking of Justin and how he blamed himself for what happened when really he was the one that saved it from getting any further. I called him to tell him I was okay.
"Hello?!" -he answered immediately.
"Justin, I'm alright..while physically not so much emotionally."-I didn't really know how to feel.
"It's good to hear you're alright. Can I see you?" -he was talking really fast.
"Of course always. But can you come here. I don't really want to leave my house right now."
He agreed and was on his way. While I was waiting I wrote everything down in my journal. Even though I was just re writing the things that I was thinking, it helped just to get it on paper. I wrote everything in there. You could not even know me but read it and understand every detail about me. The thing I love about Justin is he probably knows all of it. There's no secrets between us and I love that he's the first person I can actually tell anything to. There was a knock at my bedroom door and it was opened to my amazing best friend. He said nothing just slowly walked over and sat at the end of my bed rubbing my back as I was lying on my stomach.
"Justin I don't want you to feel guilty. You got there just in time to stop it from getting more serious." I don't think he believed me but he was able to say thank you.
"Spence, are you gonna do okay at school? I can come hangout with you during lunch and stuff."
It was sweet but I had to turn him down.
"Just because you're my best friend doesn't mean I need you as a body guard Justin." -I explained. He seemed disappointed that he was unable to help. We just forgot the topic and decided to watch a comedy movie while we made jokes. That party was the stupidest idea ever. I guess the only one I had to blame was myself.
