I was now huddling in my bed. Eyes puffy and red from tears and my door still locked. Caden said last night he called the school and they understand if I want to take a couple days off, so I am. I haven't left my room since last night. Caden has been tempting me with my favorite foods , but I don't want to eat, sleep, or doing anything right now. My dad's life is on the line and he could die at any moment. We won't know anything until a couple days and that is harsh. It was around 2:40 and at the moment I think I have moved three times in the last three hours just to find a better position under all the covers. I laid in silence and did nothing but breathe in and out .
I heard commotion downstairs a little bit after this. I then heard a set of feet making it's way towards my room. I groaned mentally. Can't Caden get I don't want to be bothered. I heard a knock on my door and then I heard a deep voice say " Lacey, can I come." I popped up from my bed. Ash came!I then slowly got up from my bed wrapped a blanket all around me and made my way to the door. I slowly opened it and saw a glimpse of Ash. I Then open the door to let him in. He walked in and I immediately closed the door behind him. He was standing looked at me, but i made my way back to my bed and the position I was in originally.
He came by and sat down adjacent to me and I felt him put his hand on my back and he said " IT's going to be alright okay. " I removed the blanket from my head and looked at him and said " How do you know?" He looked down and said " To be honest I don't , but I just know eventually something great will come again and let you forget the bad. Like how a rainbow comes at the end of a storm. You just have to endure long enough to see it." I sighed and made room on my bed for him. He laid down and wrapped his arms around me. He then kissed my forehead and said " How about you get some sleep. IT doesn't seem you've gotten any." I fought with him on this. He is gently singing a light tune trying to get me to calm down and relax. I try to keep my eyes open, but I could fight anymore.
The rest of the night I was in complete silence as Ash try and got me to eat and do other necessary things . At the end of the night he gave me a kiss and said " I'll see you tomorrow!" I went back to my room after that and hid away under my blankets once again. The next day came and we had the same routine. Although this time I talked a bit more (TO him) and I was eating better. Friday came by so fast and it seemed like and entirety. I went back to school today. Almost using it as a distraction to the really problem that the doctors haven't called back yet.
The day went by with a drag and the more I tried to ignore the pain I am having the more it came. Ash was a comfort. The way he held my hands to classes and wrapped his arm around my shoulder during lunch. The pain went away until the second he let go. At the end of the day I packed up slowly as the rest of the student body raced out of the halls. When I closed my locker and turned around Adam stood in front of me. He had a smirk on his face and came a little closer. " I missed you at school the past few days he said ." I tried to ignore him and walked away , but he pushed me gently up against the lockers so I wasn't able to leave.
His smirk was on his face still. Something filled his eyes telling me this was never the Adam I knew , but even I knew that Adam was gone. His hand grabbed my chin and made me look in his eyes. I had my hands on his chest trying with all my might to push him off, but he was able to hold me. He chuckled and said " you aren't going anywhere until I can prove to you that it's me you should be with." I tried to push harder at his chest . He was still pushing me against the locker and had my chin in his grip before I knew it His lips touched mine.
The way he slobbery kissed I knew I don't care for him anymore , which I kind of knew. I was still trying to push him and pull my head from his , but it was futile. He eventually let go with an even bigger smirk . I then looked over to see down the all was Ash starring in disbelief. I stared at him and back at Adam wondering who to deal with first. I decided to run over to Ash , who was now walking away. I got close enough to him where I said " Let me explain please Ash don't do this. " He stopped dead in his tracks and turned around. Angry and Sadness was shown with his expression. " Why should I let you. It's clear to me that you were kissing with you Ex. What more explaining could I need. To think I actually I like you and thought you like me. IT was Bull from the beginning wasn't it. You just wanted to F****** play with me. Well no what the game or whatever you call it is over." I was speechless at his words " But I .." He cut me and off and said " But nothing " And walked away .
I dropped to my knees and started to sob and then I heard someone chuckle behind me. I looked and saw Adam leaning against the locker. I walked up to him and said " YOU JUST LIKE TO KEEP RUING MY LIFE. WELL, GO MESS WITH SOMEONE ELSE'S BECAUSE I'M DONE DEALING WITH YOU. I BEEN DONE SINCE THE LAST TIME YOU MESSED ME UP LIKE THIS. I'M SICK OF IT CAN'T YOU TAKE A HINT THAT WHATEVER WE HAD IN THE PAST IS DONE AND OVER WITH!" He stood stun by my burst of words and so did the few kids still scattering around the halls. I then walked out on him and made my way home sobbing my head off.
When I got home I heard Caden in the kitchen again. I heard him call out " The hospital called."
