Fuck You Over

*Said I was a douche bag won't call back, worst hangover you ever had. Felt so good at first but you knew it would never last.*
I stared at the girl in the front seat. Was that really my only competition? I had to be up against something better than that, something more classy and less trashy perhaps?
"This is Violet, she goes to the high school down the road from ours." Ashton said smirking at me. I smiled and shook her hand.
"Hey, I'm Hunter. It's a pleasure to meet you." I said sitting back in my seat. Ashton stared at me questioningly before turning the car on.
"We're gonna make one more stop at my friend Luke's house real quick." He said to Violet. She nodded. Oh no, he knew he was on to me. I sighed heavily and did breathing exercises. I forgot about Luke's part in my plan. Pretend I wasn't madly in love with him… seems easy enough.

22. 19- Coma and Karma

19- Coma and Karma

Still Ashton's POV

Six days have past and we've only now been able to see her. She's still unresponsive but stable. Everyone says it's a miracle but she could die. So I'd rather her be alive and well than not able to comprehend and in a coma.

"Hey Ashton," nurse April smiled at me. I nodded not taking my sunglasses off.

"Nothing new?" She asked.

"Doc says no new tests for the next two days. He says progress is good." I say gritting my teeth.

"She's not as pale anymore. What I'd give to have skin like this." April mused brushing Hunter's hair out of her face. April rubbed my back before walking out of the room. I watched Hunter. All I wanted to do was hold her and cuddle her and love her.

"Please wake up." I begged kissing her forehead. I wrapped my red flannel over top of her.

"Are you hungry?" Michael asked walking next to me.

"Is this some kind of sick joke? Does someone find this funny? Taking the only good thing in my life away from me?" I asked. I let the tears fall from my eyes and to hunter's lifeless body.

"She's not gone. She's preserved."

"Like a mummy?"

"She can hear you. Coma patients can hear. Talk to her. Tell her what she needs to hear." Michael says patting me on the back before leaving. I ran my hand down the side of her face. I took her hands in mine and bent down to her.

"Look, I've never prayed like this before. I've never prayed for something that mattered. Right now, if you don't know, you're in a coma. I need you to come back because if you don't come back then I don't think I can make it. Don't just think about me. Think about your dad and Lola or Michael and Cassie. Think about Calum for god sake," I chuckled. No response the continuation of no answers was cutting a hole in my hope. "I love you. I love you so much and I wake up in this hospital every morning waiting for you to wake up and for you to say you love me and to get jealous and to snort when you laugh or to tell me my knock knock jokes are stupid. I want you to be here because when you're not here you take a huge part of my heart wherever you go." I said. I reached into the pocket of my dress pants that were sprawled on a chair. I took out the box that had been burning holes inside of me since I bought and I took out the little silver diamond studded ring. I slid it on her middle finger and kissed her lips softly.

"And this is a promise ring. Because I promise to love you forever and always. No matter what." I said sighing. I waited. If this was a fair tale she would have woken up and we would live happily ever after. But it isn't. She's not waking up. She's still in a coma and it'll take sometime. It'll take some time that I don't have.

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

We all went back to school. They moved Hunter to the hospital where her dad worked and we all visited her as much as possible. It's April now. It's been two months since she has been in a coma. Doctors all say she'll be fine but by the looks of it she hasn't done anything more than what she's been doing for the past two months.

"Ashton?" Alyson said as I took out my notebook for class. I didn't even know what class this was. It didn't even matter anymore. I was just here. "How is she doing?" She asked hesitantly.

"Same since we got here." I said in monotone. Zayn had been visiting on the weekends making sure she was alright and probably annoying the fuck out of her when I wasn't around.

"I feel like I'm kind of responsible, in a way." She said tucking a strand of hair behind her ear.

"Maybe, maybe not." I said scribbling things that Hunter has said down in my notebook.

'I love you.'

'I'm the only one in this relationship who does embarrassing things.'

'I'm sorry.'

"Yeah, I'm sorry too." I mumbled to myself. I walked to lunch and sat there waiting for Michael and Calum to come and force me to eat something.

"Where's Cassie?" I asked them as I munched on a carrot.

"At the hospital." Calum said not making eye contact.

"Why?" I asks both of them.

"Ashton, Hunter is going to be ok." Michael said.

"Why is she at the hospital?" I asked again louder.

"Fine, they moved Hunter back to the ICU. She's having seizures and the doctors are announcing her officially terminal." Calum said. I shot up and ran out to the parking lot. Calum and Michael followed me moving me to Michael's car. I sat in the passenger seat as Michael drove us to the hospital. It seemed like we hit every single red light on the way there.

"Goddamit! Hurry up!" I shouted from my seat. Michael gave Calum a look and Calum returned it.

"Ashton you need to take it easy. They won't let you in the ICU if you seem like any harm to the patients current condition. Plus she's still not awake." Calum said as we pulled into the parking lot of the hospital. I took the parking time as my time to calm down and refresh my prior attitude of 'zero fucks given'. I ran into the hospital taking the stairs and meeting dr. Finnegan in the hallway.

"Ah, Mr. Irwin I'm guessing you heard the news." He says wiping his eyebrow.

"You said it wasn't going to be that bad."

"She's been terminal for a while. That doesn't mean death but the chances of life are very slim." He says. I groaned and shook my head in disbelief.

"I don't understand what could've gone wrong." I said.

"She's vulnerable. The click of pen to the honking of horns may have triggered something inside her." Dr. Finnegan explains. I tug roughly at the ends of my hair.

"Well tell me something good." I said leaning against the wall.

"She was awake." He smiled.

"For how long?" I asked.

"Two minutes. She didn't say anything she just looked around." He says. I chuckle humorlessly.

"Doctor, tell me the truth. Not the truth you tell your patients. The real truth." I said.

"Ashton, truthfully I don't know where this is going. Sometimes she surprises me. She's not the average patient but then again no two patients are alike. I want her to make it out just like everyone else." Dr. Finnegan says. I sigh and nod in understanding.

"Thank you." I said walking into the ICU.

"Ashton!" Hyland smiled embracing me tightly. I hugged her stroking the back of her head as I looked at Hunter.

"What happened?" I asked sitting at the foot of the hospital bed.

"Well, she opened her eyes and smiled then she started moving around all uncontrollably. Hence the seizure." She says nodding her head towards Hunter.

"Doctor says she was up for awhile." I said lacing my fingers with Hunter's.

"Yeah, Gale was happy." She mused staring at the wall. I looked around the empty hospital room. We didn't decorate it or anything because we thought that it was going to be temporary. We thought she would wake up.

"Where's your mom?" I asked. Greta was usually always with Hunter.

"With a lawyer. Gale went to go talk to one too." She says. I stared at her. I never asked what her relationship to Hunter was. I just assumed she was like the rest of us. Or maybe even distant family.

"How do you know Hunter?" I asked. She looked at me hesitant and then at Hunter.

"I'm her sister."

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

We were sitting in the waiting room after visiting hours. Hyland and I hadn't said two words to one another since the whole confession of sisterly matrimony. Gale and Greta were talking to Dr. Finnegan. I tried to read their lips but no success.

"He's saying they are going to have to cut her off soon." Hyland says tears streaming from her eyes.

"Like surgery? Cut her open?" I asked.

"No, like end her life supply."

"Can't we move her to another hospital or something?" I asked.

"No. This is it." I dropped my head into my head and cried. I cried because this was it. She was gone. I needed to get my mind off of all of this. I walked out of the hospital and walked around. I knew where I was headed but I was scared to say. Only when I got there did I understand what I was doing.

"Hey ash ash." Violets voice swayed in my ears. I cringed at the tone. I pressed my lips to hers pushing her into the house. Her lips were cold and rigid. I pushed everything in the back of my head and I pushed Violet to the couch. This would go quick. I should've drank something first.

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

"Hello?" I said tugging my shoes on as my cell phone was pressed against my ear by my shoulder.

"She's awake." Michael said. I swallowed the lump in my throat and shook my head. Whoever was up there playing these tricks was obviously enjoying this.

"Um, I'll be there in ten minutes." I said clearing my throat.

"Ok, do you need a ride? Where are you?"

"No I-"

"Ash Ash, I'm waiting." Violet sang loudly.

"No," I heard Hunter croak.

"Am I on speaker?" I asked Michael.

"Kind of. She wanted to hear your voice." Michael defended.

"You're with Violet?" I heard Hunter ask.

"Hunter let me explain." I begged walking out of the house and down the street.

"What the hell! I was in a coma and you were inside of Violet? Thank you for spending your time so wisely." She said sarcastically.

"No! You don't get to do that. You left. I didn't. I was there."

"Except when you were sticking your tongue down Violet's throat?" She asked.

"Look, I made a mistake, I'm sorry." I apologized.

"You make a lot of mistakes. And I made one by trusting you." She said hanging up. I shut my eyes and leaned against a light pole. I needed to talk to her even if she was mad. I had to let her know I was there.

I walked into the waiting room where Michael was the only person there. He looked up when he saw me and he sighed before shaking his head.

"You fucked up, dude. You majorly fucked up." He says licking his lips and nodding to the seat across from him. I sit and lean back in my chair.

"She's scared. And she's angry and sad and confused. What you did, was selfish and low." Michael said.

"But what about what she's done to me? She left me!"

"This isn't about you! None of this is! Hunter almost died from a fucking aneurism and you are only thinking about what will happen to you? We can't afford to think like that! None of us can." He said sternly.

"She left me." I said

"But, she came back." Michael said standing up. "And when you're ready to come back, you can." He said before walking away. I groaned throwing my head back. It was quiet for a minute. I was alone and then the tapping of sneakers came into range and the seat next to mine was moved slightly.

"I told her, months ago, that you didn't deserve her." I heard Luke's voice say. I glanced over and he looked annoyingly smug.

"Yeah? And what she say?" I asked him. He glanced over at me.

"Does it matter? You still ended up with her anyways." He said. I chuckled and cracked my knuckles on the chairs cushion.

"What? Are you here to gloat?" I asked.

"You know, I never saw you as the enemy. I knew one of two things would happen. You'd lose interest and dump her or you'd break her heart and she'd dump you. I never thought you'd be capable to love...again that is." He said.

"It looks as though we've both lost. We both lost this stupid stupid game we call love. All because of a lonely girl with a big heart." I muttered.

"I wasn't finished. Though I never saw you as an enemy I also never saw Hunter as a love interest. Until her worth was in view and out of reach."

"You see, that's where you lost. You lost even before you knew the game was being played. It's kind of unfair in a way. You played with no advantage other than the fantasy you thought she had for you when she fell in love with me," I smiled slightly realizing what I'd just said.

"She's not going to like you back. It's over, you lost." I said.

"Oh, I haven't lost yet." He said chuckling as he walked away.

"I haven't lost yet." I sat there watching as the empty waiting room somehow became emptier and emptier and soon there was less than no one there. I stood up and walked towards Hunter's room. I peeked through the window. She was alone. I'd assumed she was with her dad or Greta. I walked in and immediately caught her attention.

"Uh, hey." I said scratching the back of my neck.

"Ashton, do you feel good when you cheat on me?" She asked staring me dead in the eye.

"What? No?! Of course not!"

"Then why do you do it?" She asked.

"I don't know."

"Like hell you don't."

"You left." I said shaking my head.

"Oh sorry, I shouldn't have had an aneurism how rude of me. And going into a coma that's my bad. What was I thinking?" She asked annoyed.

"They said they were cutting you off." I said.

"So to feel better you had sex with Violet? Great backup plan." She scoffed.

"I don't have a backup plan! That's what I'm trying to explain! When you're gone that's it for me!" I exclaimed. She sighed and snuggled into the band teeshirt that she was wearing. It was way to big to be hers.

"What are you wearing? You hate the Sex Pistols." I said pointing to the shirt. She looked down and then sighed.

"Luke gave it to me." She said. I leaned against a wall staring at her.

"So you're buddy buddy with Luke now?" I asked.

"Everybody's not like that, not trying to hook up with someone who's already taken." She said.

"Yeah, but Luke, he's trying to get into your pants." I said. Why were we arguing? She was sick!

"Ashton, I think- I suggest we take a break."

"What?" Was she really doing this?

"We've both been under tons of stress these past few weeks and I really think we just need to be alone right now." She said.

"Two months." I said looking at her.

"What?"

"You were in a coma for two months. I waited for you for two months." I said tears falling slowly down my face.

"That's not the point. The point is, the second you thought I was gone, you got a new girl." She said. I sighed and walked out of the hospital room. Great, I was kind of single.
