I frown my eyebrows in confusion. I looked at the officer in front of me, he's waiting for me to say something but I can’t process what’s going on. “Sorry what?” I asked the officer. Me and Justin stand up. “We may like to talk to Mia Roberts..is that you?” He says.
“Yes..” I mumble. “Well we are here to ask you questions about Andrew’s Vasquez accident?” He says. “Oh right now?” I asked him he nods and I sigh not really wanting to talk about this.
“Umm is it okay if you can do that another day?” Justin says cutting me off guard. “No is has to be today..” The officer says. “We can do it another day sir, please.” Justin pleads the officer. I looked at him confused wondering why he is acting this way.
“I am sorry young man but no can do, it has to be today..” He says. Justin looks at me nervously once I start following the officer outside the room. Once we are outside he starts asking me questions about the day of the accident. “Are you aware that Mr. Vasquez was drunk at the moment and crashed another car leading into killing a family?” He asked. I am taken aback by the question. I freeze trying to process this. What? What is he talking about?
“Umm excuse me what did you just say?” I say frowning my eyebrows. “What I just said Mrs. Roberts….are you aware that Mr. Vasquez-”
“Wait that actually happened?” I asked him he nods and my heart drops. No no no this can’t be happening oh my god. My mouth is wide open and my eyes start to water.
“I take that as that you didn’t know?” He mumbles. I shake my head not being able to believe this. The door of the room opens. Justin walks out with a nervous look. I cry looking at him. The officer leaves mumbling a quiet goodbye.
“I am sorry baby girl…I wanted to tell you but-”
“You knew about this?” I asked him. Wow more surprises, more secrets. “I-I...yes” He mumbled looking down. I shake my head at him. I close my eyes tight. I cup my face with my hands and sob. I can’t believe this, I can’t believe Justin. “Why didn’t you tell me before..” I asked him. “Andrew’s dad told me not to tell you and Andrew’s mom…” He says.
“And you listened to him.” I spat at him. “You had a lot on your plate at that moment..” He says. “ I had to..” He says. I wipe away some tears not knowing what to say.
“I’m so sorry baby girl..” He says.
“I know is just that I hate it when people hide stuff from me..” I mumble. He pulls me into a hug and squeezes me tight. I wrap my hands around his waist and he around my shoulders. I hide my face on the crook of his neck and cry. “Don’t cry…” He whispers, kissing my forehead. “He might go to jail Justin..” I say. He stays quiet knowing well I am right. What am I going to do now? Oh my god my wedding.
“Justin what about my wedding?” I asked him. He looks at me and sighs. I feel his hands wiping away my wet cheeks. “You might have to call it off…” He says. Maybe I do. Gosh why do bad stuff always happen to me.
“Maybe..” I whispered.
“We have to wait until he wakes up..” he says. I nod my head.
“Do you know who was in the other car..?” I asked him. All of the sudden he starts getting nervous. “Justin you know something right?” I asked him. He looks away. I turn his head to face mine. “Tell me..” I say he sighs and and closes his eyes for a moment. “David..his best friend..” he mumbles. I widened my eyes in shock and my body freezes. “No...oh my god..it can’t be him..” I shake my head. David can’t be dead no he can’t be.
“Mia..” I hear Justin whispered. “Gosh he is so stupid..” I exclaim making Justin flinched. “I know but did you know him?” He asked. “Of course I did… he was always with Andrew they been friends since diapers. I didn’t really had a close relationship with David but we did talk.” I told him. “I am so sorry..” Justin says. “Why are you sorry it wasn’t your fault, in fact none of this was your fault..” I tell him. He stays quiet.
I walk up to him and grab his hands he looks at me and I look at him. “Thank you..” I tell him. “For what?” “For always being here for me, you’ve been such an amazing friend this past weeks and it really means a lot to me Justin…” I tell him. He gives me a beautiful smile making me smile back at him.
“Anytime baby girl.” He says. I give him a big hug and a kiss on the cheek. “Let’s wait then..” I tell him. He nods and we walk back to the room. I see something different tho. It was Andrew he was awake. I run to his side. “Oh my god Andrew!” I say hugging him, I feel him hugging me back. I smile at the feeling. “Where am I?” He says confused. I look at him with sympathy. “Your in the hospital baby..” I whispered. He looks at me still confused. “What happened?” He asked. I sigh. “You don’t remember?” I asked him he moans a quiet no. I feel Justin staring at me and Andrew. I turn to look at Justin and he gives me a small smile.
“Is okay you'll remember later..” I tell him. “I missed you..” I say. I feel Andrew touch my cheek with his hand. I smile at him and he smiles back. “I love you..” He whispers. My smile gets bigger. “I love you too..” I say.
I hear Justin coughing. I turn to look at Justin. “I better leave..” Justin says pointing at the door. “Oh okay..” I say nodding my head. He gives me a small smile with his head down. “Wait what the fuck are you doing here?” Andrew says making me roll my eyes. Oh here we go again. “Andrew don’t start he’s just been taking care of me while you were in here."
"Taking care of you my ass.” He says. “Andrew!” “Don’t you see he is trying to get into your pants just like the rest of the guys in this damn world.” He says.
“Andrew shut up! No he was just-” “Hey is okay..I have to leave..” Justin says. “Hey no is okay, I am sorry…” I say. He nods his head. “You got to fucking kidding me..” Andrew says. “Can you please stop being disrespectful.” I tell him. “No until he leaves.” He says. “You know what he is leaving..but with me.” I say. I stand up and walk to where Justin is. I grab his arm and pull him outside with me leaving Andrew in shock.
Like a boss.
