19. The News

                 As I lay in bed I hear giggling coming down the hall. Someone reaches the door and flings it open. Daisy walk in the room and collapses to the floor, still giggling. She's drunk. I know this as soon as I see her. The people will be here to check our room any minute now. If they see her like this, there will be trouble. I walk over to her and pull her off the ground. I half drag her to her bed and pull her up. The whole time she just laughs. I roll my eyes and cover her up. "Be quiet Daisy if they see you like this... your gonna be in so much trouble." She stops laughing. Man she is so out of it.

                 I walk back over to my bed at the sound of the crying baby. I lift it up and hold it my chest, gently rocking it. It eventually stops crying and I set it down. I lay down on my bed and turn on the t.v. I reach over and grab my phone. I turn it on and I hear a knock on the door. "Come in!" I yell.

                 A security person walks in and looks around. Daisy is already asleep. "Okay you guys are good," he nods his head curtiously and walk out.

                  I go into my texts that me and Josh have sent. I hit "new text" and start typing. Hey Josh. I tried texting and calling you yesterday, but you didn't answer. I was just wondering whats been going on. We haven't talked in a couple days and I just wanted to say hi and I love you. I hit send and a moment later see "read" below the text. He read it! A moment later I get a beep. I look at it excitedly. Sorry. My parents took my phone, I just got it back today when I got home from school. Look I coming to see you. I've been going crazy the past couple of days. I love you too Kara. I stare at the screen in shock. When he is coming to see me? How will he see me? They wont let him see me. When? How? I text back. Tomorrow. I'll say I'm your cousin ;)  I shake my head and smile. Okay. See ya tomorrow :)         See ya then :)

               I lay back and smile at the ceiling. I'm gonna see Josh tomorrow. I clap off the lights and shut my eyes. To bad yesterday is so far away.




                 I wake up the next morning and get dressed quickly. I wear light skinny jeans, a white tank top, a baggy shirt that says love, and a gray beanie that I forgot I had. I put on my tan sperries and a silver necklace with a heart. I walk over and shake Daisy softly. She doesn't move so I shake her harder. She moans and opens her eyes. "Get up," I tell her. "I'm leaving early so if you wanna come with me you better hurry up." She moans again, but sits up.

                  "I cant remember anything that happened last night," she says with wide eyes.

                  "Well you were somewhere doing something then long story short you found your way here drunk as crap," I say with fake enthusiasm.

                   "Okay well you can go. I'm probably not gonna go today. I feel like crap."

                   "That's what hangovers do to ya," I say sarcastically.

                   "Whatever. Just go," she covers her head with her blankets and goes back to sleep.

                   I head to school at 7:20. 10 minutes early. When I arrive I see I an one of the first people. I actually have to stand outside for 5 minutes. When they let us in I head straight for my locker. I get my stuff for math and head to class. I see Mathew already sitting at his desk. He is tapping his pencil noisily. When I sit down I cant help, but smile. I am in such a good mood. "Well don't you look happy?"

                    "Yeah. I am happy," I agree. I can hardly sit still.

                    "And why is that? Is it cause I'm here," he teases.

                    "No Josh is coming to see me later," I smile, but Mathew frowns.

                    "Oh." is all he says.

                    "What?" I ask.


                    The teacher walks in and we start the lesson. he rest of the day is a blur of things I don't care about. Work, work, more work, projects, and homework. At the end of the day I text Josh to see where he is. Just left. he responds after a minute.

                     I am so giddy and happy. I am practically skipping back to my room. When i get there I see Daisy is awake. Barely. She has the lights off and is watching t.v. I clap the lights on and run to her. I let out a little squeal. "What?"

                      "Josh is coming to see me later," I squeal again. She smiles big.

                      "That's awesome!"

                      "I know!"

                       She gives me a hug just as my phone starts to ring. I pull away and see it is my dad. I don't want to talk to him, but I answer it anyways. I hold my finger up to a confused Daisy. "What do you want?" I snap.

                        "Its... Josh," his voice cracks and I hear him start to cry.

                        "What is it dad? Tell me!" I plead.

                        "He was in a car crash. He's in the hospital."

                        "Where? Tell me where! I have to see him," I scream.

                        "I'm coming to get you now. I'll be there in 5 minutes."

                        He hangs up and I am left speechless. Josh is in the hospital, Josh is in the hospital. That's all I can think. I don't feel pain. I feel numb. Like everything has been ripped out of me and left me empty. That's what I am. Empty. I cant cry. My eyes wont allow it. Wont allow the tears to form and let me mourn for him. He could die any minute. What am I going to do? Daisy gets up and looks me in the eye. "Tell me," she insists.

                         "Josh is in the hospital," is all I can say.

                         She doesn't say anything else. Se grabs me in a tight hug. When she lets me go I walk to the door. "I have to go." I run. I run all the way to the main office. I see my dad there. He's mess to. But why? He hates Josh. He didn't want me to see Josh, but now he's crying over him. Why? I don't care. I have to see Josh. That's all that matters.

                        He doesn't say anything as we walk to his car or as we drive to the hospital. I'm glad though cause I don't know what I would say. When we finally reach a hospital I jump out and run to the door. "What room?"

                        "617." Oh my god. That's my room number! I cant think about that right now. I cant.

                        I run up the stairs to the third floor and down hallways, trying to find my way to his room. I lost my dad on the first floor. I don't know where he is. I reach the room and run in it. I am stopped by 2 doctors. "You cant be in here miss," one of them says.

                        "I'm his father and she is my daughter. Let her in." I hear my dad behind him.

                        My eyes widen in horror. Dad???!!! "What?!" I scream.

                        "It was a long time ago. Before I met your mother. I didn't want you to know, but you guys couldn't be with each other like that," he says in a pleading voice.

                        "So you wait till he's dying to tell that?" I demand. My voice breaks. "You know what forget. Don't talk to me."

                        I turn around and walk in his room. I find him in the middle laying on his bed. His whole body is covered in cuts and bruises. He has a gash about his eyebrow and his left hand is bandaged up. He looks... broken. I don't feel numb anymore. I feel the tears well up in my eyes and I cant stop them. I fall to my eyes and lay my head on his bed. I grab his hand and find that it is cool. Not warm the way it used to be. His brown hair is tousled and wet with blood. His eyes are shut so I cant see his beautiful green eyes. I sob and sob for years its feel like. At some point my dad came in and sat in a chair beside the bed. I don't look at him. I cant now that I know what I know.

                      "Miss. He's not going to make it. He went into a coma and he's lost a lot a blood. You should go home."

                      "No! Shut up!" I scream.

                      The doctor doesn't reply. The room goes silent for a moment. An eery silence. The silence is filled with a beeping noise. I don't look up. I know what the sound is. I sob again and I fall to the floor. I curl up into a ball and cry. No one says anything or tries to comfort me.  My mind does not want to process this. Josh is not dead, Josh is not dead, Josh is not dead. I tell myself this over and over again, but deep down I know he is. I know he is dead. He died coming to see me. He died for me. He is dead.



                               :( He's dead! I know. I hope you guys weren't expecting it to much. Okay so there is only going to be a few more chapters. You guys decide whether you want a sequel or not. Comment yes or no for a sequel. The majority wins. You have to get your votes in by the time I have finished the last chapter. There will probably be 2 or 3 more so I should be done by Friday. I just want to thank you guys for reading. It means a lot. Okay well that's all I have to say. :)
