24. Finally awake
I didn't expect to wake up , so when I did it was more than shocked. Especially seeing Ash right in front of me holding my hand. I thought he left me for good and didn't think I would see him again. Which is probably why I freaked out a little when I saw he wasn't in the room anymore when I woke up for the second time. Luckily My brother told me he had to go to school. My brother looked different. He had a small beard and bags under his eyes. I guess I was in such a panic and a mess I forgot how much he would miss me.
" i'm sorry If I worried you Caden, I didn't want to. I was just so wrapped up in the negative part of my life and forgot about the good." His face showed shock on it. I forgot that I haven't talked to him since a year ago. He came closer to me and said " You're talking. Why are you talking. Please tell me you are my sister." I laughed and said " I'm your sister and I think it's about time I start talking ." As best as he could he embraces me into a big hug. We were both crying just a little and then he said " I wish dad could here you talk again." I then said " I do too."
We talked all afternoon about everything. I guess he really missed me talking to me. He then decided to take me to the cafe to grab a bite to eat. The only way I could go though was a wheelchair because they want me to recover from the lack of heat. So he pushed me down in a wheelchair while three blankets were wrapped around me. WE arrived down and I told him what I would like and he got that for me and brought us to a table. As we ate ,we ate in silence. Soon enough he asked me " So why did you let Ash get close to you?" This brought me to my own thoughts and I said " HE just made me question why I wasn't talking and I guess I just open up to him from that. " HE nodded understanding than I said " What are you going to do now that dad is gone?" HE gave me a look and said " Well, I was going to stay with you. Get a full times job to support us and we can see from there." I looked down a little guilty and said " I feel like you have given up everything for me , Are you sure you want to I'm okay going to grandma or grandpa for the heck of it I'll even go to our crazy Aunt." He looked at me and said " I'm sure I want to do this besides what you don't know is for the past year I haven't missed out on much. I been taking an online collage to keep up."
Tears were streaming down my face and I said " Then thanks for staying with me I couldn't imagine being anywhere else." He laughed and said " I need to get you back up to your room, you have a guest who will be here any minute." HE threw away our garbage and then wheeled me back upstairs. When I got there Four figures were in the room. My brother wheeled me in so I could see Ash, Chase, Drew, and Dan. Ash had flowers for me and the others just had a smile. Ash was coming in to give me a hug when Chase got in his way and beat him. Chase then said " I missed you, I mean who else am, I suppose to tell all the horrible things about my little brother too." I laughed and said to him for the first time " Well, I don't know who else would listen." Every single one of there faces dropped hearing me talk for the first time in there lives. Ash just had a confuse look though. Chase then stuttered " I thought I thought you didn't talk." I giggled a little and said " To be fair I chose not to talk for multiply reasons that I don't want to talk, but I realize that I need to talk so I'm hoping maybe we can actually get to know each other now. I still want to play charades. "
