Song for this chapter ~ When You're Gone, Avril Lavigne
The medics came towards him but all they did was just sigh and shake their heads. " SAVE HIM! WHAT ARE YOU DOING! " I shouted.
One of them looked at me pitifully and said, " We're sorry miss... It's too late. He's gone. "
" NO!! ZACH PLEASE.... " I said and continued calling his name and suddenly, darkness engulfed me and I blacked out.
" Ashley? " I heard someone say. " Ashley baby? "
I slowly opened my eyes and squinted. When my eyes slowly adjusted to the lights, I realized I was in my room. My mum was clutching my hand and I could feel dry sticky tears on my face.
Then everything hit my like a wave, reminding me that Zach was dead and I started crying again. My mum pulled my up and I cried in her chest.
" Shh...It's going to be ok baby... " she said and patted my head slowly.
" Mum... it wad all my fault. If I didn't fight with him, if I didn't run away from him, none of this would have happened... " I cried harder.
" Shh.... " my mum said, " What is suppose to happen will happen. He's in a better place now. " she said softly and I closed my eyes, feeling my heart break into a million pieces once again.
Months has passed but I still couldn't get Zach out of my head. I have already stop trying to. When I go around at school, I will always see him, in the cafeteria, in the classroom, in the field...
When I walk around alone, I will start walking to Ally's Pizza and sit down where we used to sit.
When I go to the mall, I will remember him shopping with me and buying clothes for me. When I see sport cars, I will see him in one of it and start chasing it and when it stopped at the traffic light, I will realize the person isn't him.
Everywhere I go, everything I do remind me off him.
Every night when I sleep alone, I will start crying until I fall asleep. I will have dreams of him and when I wake up I will realize that he is gone.
I even asked my parents to take me to the woods where we had our school trip to visit it one last time.
To go to the waterfall and sit there for hours. Thinking about him.
His shadow is everywhere. I really miss him.
Zach's POV* Surprised? *
As I opened my eyes slowly, I took in the surroundings around me and realize I was in a room covered in white walls and I was on a bed.
The metal door to the room slid open and someone in a white suit came in. " Ah Zach Clayton, you're awake. " he said.
" Where am I? " I asked.
" I'm one of the doctors of the hospital. Blake's the name. " he said and smiled.
" What am I doing here? " I asked.
" Well, your body was hit and dead on Earth but we managed to save your Raelia Soul. You have some damage on your head so you'll loose your memory... " he said and flipped through pages on a clipboard.
" Oh... " I said and rubbed the back of my head.
" Get some rest while we fix your body on Earth. " he said.
" Will I get my memory back? " I asked.
" Maybe. But that depends. " he said and got out of the room.
My head was aching. I could barely remember anything. My name is Zach Clayton. That's like the only thing I can remember.
Then suddenly, an image popped into my head. A face of a girl. Just the face, no name, no words, no nothing. Just her face smiling at me. Who is she?
It's been almost a year since Zach's death. He was still so clear in my head. I could still see his body during the car crash. His last smile, his last words. These brought tears back to my eyes again.
I changed to another school because my parents didn't want me to think of him too much, they wanted me to let go and get over him, something that was impossible to be done.
I was walking alone at the field of the new school.
Then suddenly, there was a familiar looking back in front of me.
It was so familiar, the height, the muscles, the hair.
Before I knew it my legs were running forward, bringing me towards the person.
The guy suddenly tilted his head to look at the side and I saw the face of Zach Clayton.
I hugged him tight from the back so tightly and started crying. He was alive. He's here. He's fine. But all he did was stand still. After a while he started turning around. He put his hands on my shoulders.
I lifted my eyes to see him. I blinked several times to clear my eyes.
It was him. It was him! It was Zach Clayton! I will never forget the face of his.
" I miss you Zach... " I said and pulled him into another hug.
He didn't say anything and just stood still as I hugged him.
He pulled away again and looked into my eyes.
What he asked, shocked me so much, " Do I know you? "
I looked a t him in shock, my mouth opened and confusion hit me.
" Zach.. I-it's me... " I stuttered in confusion.
" Do I... Know you? " he asked.
" Zach. It's me, Ashley. "
" Uhm.. Hi? " he asked.
" Zach! It's me! Ashley! " I shouted.
" I think you've go the wrong person. " he said and ran his hand through his hair.
" I will never mistaken you for anyone! " I said.
" I think you've got the wrong person miss, my name's Dylan. " he said and blinked at me confused.
" But... " I stuttered, he looked exactly like Zach.
" I think you've got the wrong person but nice to meet you anyways. " He smiled and walked away.
No way... That really was Zach... That really was him... But it isn't, it's Dylan... He didn't know me...
What's going on?
Why doesn't he remember me and what is he doing alive?
My heart was once again stabbed and it was killing me. I'm sure it was Zach but he shouldn't be alive.
Maybe I miss him too much that's why. Maybe it's just my head, I'm hallucinating. I must be.
