As I looked at Kate sleeping in the bed, at the nurse's office, I thought of what happened.
I was feeling a little ill when I woke up. It took me some time to convince my mom about that I was fine.
When I got to school it was around the first break. As I walked through the school yard, I saw a group of students surrounding something. When I walked closer, I could hear the sound of glass breaking. Then I heard Kate's voice. When one of the students began run towards her, my mind went black. All I thought was: Kate's getting hurt. I grabbed the nearest thing and attacked. I walked over and hugged Kate. I felt her body turn weak. I sat her down on the ground, then turned towards her attackers.
All I remember after that, is that I see Kate looking at me. I smile to her. Then she fainted.
After that I brought her to the nurse's office. She have been sleeping ever since that. I had called her mom to come with another pair of her glasses. Ever since childhood Kate has been very sensitive about her glasses. I look at her sleeping face. I really missed that face. I gently kissed her forehead. "Mmmhm." A sweet moan escaped her mouth. I leaned in over her. Only few inches from her face, I stopped. I wanted really badly to get closer. She would never forgive me if I did. I stroke her hair as I kept looking at her sleeping face, "Ngnh." Her eyes twisted and slowly opened. She smiled kindly towards me. "Thank you Toby. Your always there when I need you." She raised her body, and hugged me. My heart skipped a beat, and raced at her touch. "K-Kate what are you doing?!" Her hug got tighter. My cheeks burned. I tried lightly to remove her body. Just how power does this girl have?! At least I got her hands from my back, and layed her back again. Her cheeks were really hot. It looked like she was having a fever. She was asleep again. I stood up to leave, but realized that Kate was holding on to my shirt. After the struggle when I tried to remove her from me, I decided that it was best to wait until she letted go herself. I sat there looking at her sleeping face. I gently stroke her face. "Mmhm..... What are you doing Toby?" I quickly pulled my hand towards myself again. I peered into her face. Looks like she was muttering in her sleep. But how did she know it was me?I heard the bell ring. Schools over now. I picked her up in my arms. She letted go of my shirt, and hugged my neck, like she was only half asleep.
I went by our class, took our things, and left, still carrying her in my arms. All the other students looked after us with big eyes. I tightened my grib on her weak body. "Ngnh..... Mmhm." She's mumbeling in her sleep again.
Walking home carrying her turned out to be a lot of trouble. Every person we went by looked at us with a wondering look on their faces.
I felt a little weird when I stopped in front of her door. Just how many questions will her mom ask? I knocked on the door and entered.
The house seemed dark and lonely. There was no sight of Kate's mom anywhere. I went into her room and layed her on the bed. I watched for a while, then stood up and went home to tell mom that I was staying at Kate's place for a while. Only until her mom came back.
