When her last tear dropped, we stared into each others crystal blue eyes. Her mouth started moving until a loud whisper came wondering past her lips, "Maya." She looked around the room then back at me, "Who, who's Maya?" I asked. She closed her lips together and clenched her teeth before looking down and whispered in a tone fairly audible, "My sister..." Why would she be thinking of her sister, I questioned myself, when I went round her's she didn't mention any siblings. Surely she would've told me. I'm her boyfriend after all!
I hopped onto the bed after pacing in circles. Crossing my legs and grabbing her cold hands, I caressed them with my thumb. "Are you cold?" I asked, reaching for my childhood favourite blanket. Tossing it round her back, t hugged her slender figure as she pulled it in further with clenched fists. She sat up a little bit more before asking if I wanted to know about Maya. I could tell it was still a touchy subject for her but I needed to know if she would let me in. I scratched the back of my neck nervously and nodded, then took her hands in mine once more.
She began telling me the story of her sister being a 'party animal' and her diagnoses. By the time she reached her death tears were running down both her and my faces. When she claimed her last words, I sniffed before asking if she wanted to stay the night until she felt better. She nodded, "I have everything in my bag that I need, like my laptop, except for clothes." I told her that she could borrow some of mine, but not before asking if she needed to call her mum. She shook her head just as my phone made a loud ding! It was Michael, typical. He said he wanted to come over. I looked at Suzy worriedly then showed her the text. "It's fine! I don't want to stop you from being your friends." I couldn't help a wide grin from spreading over my face as I kissed her head as a thank you.
The doorbell rang only moments after I texted Michael back with a yes. Grabbing Suzy's hand, I rushed down the stairs (I held onto to the whole time) to open the door. The first thing I saw as I opened the door was a mess of bright purple hair, before the rest of Michael stepped through. Before I could even say hi, a mess of limbs and, well, Michael, was thrown at Suzy. She laughed and buried her head in the crook of his neck as I said "idiot." At that very moment she glared at me and said, "No. Only Naomi may be worthy if the name Idiot." I held up my hands in mock surrender as Michael opened his mouth to speak.
"Hey Suzy, do you have your laptop on you?" she nodded and he fled up the stairs, most likely to go get the laptop. Suzy and I both laughed, "So, would you like to go on a walk in the dark?" I asked whilst smiling. I heard a reply saying, "Only if we ride our skateboards." We both laughed. As we dashed up the stairs to warn Michael we heard laughs coming from my room, one of them slightly muffled and robotic. I knew he was skyping Naomi. After popping our heads in the door to warn Michael of our absence, we gabbed our skateboards and shut the door.
It's Suzy and I basically wrote this chapter. Long story short, my laptop is broken so I am writing chapters on paper and giving them to DrummerGirl to re-type <3
