18. The last time
Once again I have woken up in a hospital bed. Once again, the last place I was before this was Ashton and belarnas. Why is it that I always wake up in the hospital. What is going on? I am re-hooked up to the same things that I pulled out to save Ashton. Speaking of Ashton he is in the room next to me sleeping. I'm getting quite tired myself.
*snore, snore, snore*
I wake up in Ashton's room. I check the time. I was sleeping for 6hrs. I guess I got moved. I'm still really tired and as I go to sleep I watch Ashton's heart monitor. Before I shut my eyes I hear the worst sound possible. Nothing.
I wake up in the same room. Ashton is missing. The nurse sees me and immediately ushers me into a wheelchair. "Where's Ashton?" I ask as I'm being wheeled into a completely new section. I go into a room to see Ashton. Sleeping. Beside him is Belarna. Michael and Calum are there too. The nurse shakes her head. I don't understand. All I know is at that moment everyone starts crying. "What?" I ask the nurse. "Ashton has passed Luke"
No. No. No. This can't be true. I nearly fall out of my chair as I cry. The nurse hands me a letter. I read it. Ashton knew about my life. This letter, It was Ashton's goodbye. "HOW!" I ask crying. Everyone else sobbing looks up too. We all need to know.
"Luke, everyone, we replayed the CCTV footage. His heart didn't stop. The monitor turned off. And replaying the footage. Ashton, flicked the switch himself.
I scream. I try to stand to hug him but I once again have cords in me. Ashton. Why?
"ASHTON" Belarna cries into his chest. "Why did you want to leave"
No one is okay. We are all puddled in tears. Why would he do that?
Once again I wake up in my own room. I must've passed out after finding out the news. All I want is a hug.
