PART 2: REMEMBERING SUZY
So now we're back to where we started. Standing outside a hopital room, longing for the girl I know is inside.
Cheating is something unforgivable. Some people say once a cheater, always a cheater. But I say first time's a mistake, second is a choice. The first time is gone. I never want the second to come.
She's still staring at me with those confused eyes, that confused mind, that stunning face. I feel my breathing become uneven. My head begins to spin. I don't know where to look.
My back slides down the wall as tears slide down my face. I bury my head in my hands. "I'm a horrible human being," I tell myself.
"What have I done?" I whisper to myself, "WHAT HAVE I DONE? SHE DIDN'T DESERVE THIS!" I feel some arms wrap around me. Then another, then another. I start to sob, tears falling freely down my face as my throat clenches. I look up and see all the people holding me in my embrace.
"Ash? Calum? ANNA?" I asked shocked.
"Raven's in the room with her." Anna choked, hiccups interrupting her path to clear speech.
"Where's Mike?" I asked, still shocked.
"Didn't you know? He left to England an hour ago. He's going to see Naomi." Calum answered.
I smiled slightly, knowing that Mike was going after his dream girl, then I thought of Suzy and the small glint of happiness was gone.
"But right now Luke, you need to tell us what happened."
My frown deepened.
"Okay, but your not going to like me afterwards."
I explained the story.
Within moments they were gone.
Gone forever or not, I don't know.
But right now, I was alone.
