"Well you have to tell her soon" Addie said well getting up to get a drink of water.
I followed her into the kitchen. "I will, I will don't worry about it" I said leaning up ageist the counter.
"okay, okay if you say so" She said sipping on the glass of water.
Alright. I have to tell her. It's killing me. I don't care if I'v only known her for a few weeks I really like her, and I have to let her know and see if she likes me back. If she does that would be a dream come true.
"Hey Addie, do you wanna go on a walk or something?" I asked hoping she'll say yes.
"A walk sounds nice, I haven't gone outside hardly at all today" She said chuckling
Even her chuckling makes me happy. "Alright let's go" I said smiling
We walked and talked about random things. Then I grabbed her hand. It's time to tell her.
"Addie I wanted to tell you that I really-" I stopped when I saw her stare at something in the distance "What is it?" I asked
"That old house. I think I see blood threw the window!" She said running up to the window I turned around. It's Marley's old house. Addie screamed when she looked threw the window.
"What's wrong?" I asked and ran up the window. "MARLEY!" I yelled
I ran into the house, and paused at a passed out Marley, holding a knife and having bloody arm. I bent on my knees in front of her and cried.
"MARLEY PLEASE WAKE UP! MARLEY!" I yelled
I could hear Addie also crying behind me. "I-I'll call N-Nine one one" Addison said in a shaky voice.
"HURRY!" I yelled
I stayed beside Marley. I don't really understand. I don't know why Marley would do this to herself...on the phone she sounded so happy. Well, she's a great actress.
I can't loose my best friend/sister. I'v known her all my life I don't really know what I would do without her. If she killed herself, I would probably kill myself. I would because I know I could have stopped her on the phone. I should have told her on the phone to come straight over, or I should have came over there to help her even when she said she was 'okay'. I could have stopped her, but I didn't.
"Ash I have a p-problem" Addie said in a panicky voice.
I looked over at her "What is it?!" I said loudly
"M-my phone, It's not working and I don't know why, I don't understand I used it this morning when I talked to Marley, I don't-"
"What ever I'll use my phone!" I said.
I tried to turn my phone on but, It wasn't turning on! "MINE IS'NT WORKING!" I yelled
"I think I know why" I herd Reyli say. I turned around and saw her smiling evilly. I gave her a death glare. I stood up, and made shear Addie took my place next too Marley.
I looked straight at her "OKAY LOOK, I DON'T KNOW HOW YOU MADE OUR PHONE NOT WORK BUT IT SICKENS ME TO KNOW HOW MEAN YOU ARE TO YOUR SISTER AND I-"
"Ashton! We don't have time for that! We need to get Marley help! And now!" I herd Addie interrupt me
I turned back around "Your right Addie" I said. "We need to get her to a hospital, and now." I said
I picked the bloody Marley up, I was about to go put her in a car, but then realized me and Addie walked here. "I'll just have to run to the hospital" I said and started to run but then Louis came out of not where. "Oh no you won't I have a car I'll take you" He said sounding all heroic.
I didn't really have time to think about all the bad about him and all the good, I just nodded without question and ran outside into his car with Marley. Addie followed.
"LOUIS YOU'LL REGRET THIS" I herd Reyli scream as Louis hopped in the driver's seat. He began driving.
All I could think about was Marley. I couldn't handle this. If she dies I will die no question. I just found out she's my sister, I will do anything to keep her alive. The car ride was very quite, and I know why. It's because we all don't wanna see Marley go. I don't know about Louis, but he must care about her at least alittle bit because from what I hear, he's been helping her a lot lately.
I starred at Marley, hoping she was gonna wake up. I then noticed her eyes's opened half way. "A-Ashton?" She said in a raspy voice.
"Yes, Marley it's me. Your okay. Everything's gonna be okay" I said brushing her hair. Her head was on me, and her feet were on Addie in the back seat.
"But Ashton I don't wanna be okay, I want to be dead. Make me dead. No one cares" She said more clear this time
"I care" I said
"We are here!" Louis said and quickly opened his door.
I opened my door and carried her out of the car. "Ashton, I want to be d-d-dea.." was what she said before she passed out in my arms again.
I ran into the hospital holding her.
"SOMEONE! HELP!" I yelled
The lady in the front saw me and said something in her speaker. Soon Two men holding a rolling bed came in, I set her down. "Can you help her?" I asked one of the men. "We can try" They said before they rolled her down the hall.
I stood there and watched them roll her until they rolled her into one of the rooms, then Addie toughed my shoulder . I turned around. She looked at me with hopeful eyes. "Every this's gonna be okay Ash" She said
"I hope so" I said. Then I took her hand and took her to the waiting chairs and sat down. She sat next to me.
"Everything will be okay Ashton. I promise" She said looking right at me.
"I hope your right Add, because I really don't wanna loose her" I said feeling myself get teary. I stopped myself from crying because I don't want Addie thinking I'm a baby.
I guess she could tell I was holding it in though because she said, "Ashton It's okay if you wanna let it out. I mean I cried in front of you remember?" She said chuckling lightly
I let go of her hand and berried my face in my hands and let it out. I can't handle this anymore. If I loose Marley my life will be over. Literally.
I watched Ashton cry his eyes out. It broke my heart. I put my arm around him and let him cry it out.
Once he was done He sat up and I removed my arm from around him.
"Thanks Addie" He said lightly smiling
"For what?" I asked confused
"For being there for me" He said nodding
"No problem" I said smiling. I hope that was right answer to a complement. I haven't had one of those in forever.
I kept looking at the hospital hall to see if Marley will walk out. I kept hearing foot steps in the hall but it's always just a doctor. I can't believe this happened. I keep thinking that I could have done something to stop Marley from doing all that. Is her sister making her school life that bad? I wish I was there for her. I should have been the one who helped her not Louis. I should have stopped her.
"Do you think we should call Luke?" Ashton asked. Should we? I don't know if Marley would want us too after what he did. I can't believe Luke and Reyli kissed. It sickens me. She had to have done something to get him to kiss her. He still shouldn't have though.
Just then I remembered when Louis kissed me randomly and there was nothing I could do about it. Maybe that was his situation....I have to ask him.
"I guess I'll call him" I said picking up my phone but then realized that Reyli messed it up.
"You can use mine" Louis said. Oh I forgot he was here.
I smiled thankfully and took his phone. "Do you have his number?" I asked
He nodded. I found Luke's name and pressed it to call.
"Hello?" He asked
"Hey It's Addie, I don't know what happened with you and kissing Reyli and everything, but me and Ashton found Marley in her old house cutting herself. Now we are in the hospital's waiting room. I don't know if Marley is gonna be okay. If you care about her you should come over here" I said
"Oh No! This is all my fault! I'll be right there" He said then hung up
"What did he say?" Ashton asked
"He said he's gonna come over here. He sounded concerned" I said shrugging. I then gave Louis back his phone.
Then I herd someone knocking on the hospital door over and over again. Me and Ashton ran to the door and Ashton opened the door to a struggling women holding a lady with a bloody face and bruised arms.
I helped hold the poor lady. I gasped when I recognized the bloody face.
When we were inside the girl noticed that I was starring at the blood face.
"I found this poor lady in front of a trashy house all beaten up" the girl said looking at me sad. "Do you know her?" She asked
Yes, T-T-hat's My mom!" I said in a shaky voice
"SOMEONE HELP!" Ashton yelled
2 men came up and put her on rolling bed. "You just know everyone now don't know?" One of them said chuckling.
They rolled her away. They put her in the room next to Marley's.
I stood there starring at the hall way they pushed Marley, and my Mother down.
"Addie, you okay?" Ashton said behind me
I shook my head.
He then berried me in his arms.
First my best friend.
Now my mother.
