Close as Strangers

Emily Hood is depressed and she thinks that there is no hope in living any more. Calum's girlfriend, Julie, hates Emily and Lucy, Michael's 10 year old sister. Emily thinks about killing herself herself every day, that is, until she meets someone special.


7. Luke's P.O.V

Why did this have to happen to her. Why didn't I say anything earlier when I was thinking of it. This all wouldn't have happened.

I told Calum what I thought and then I was gonna say something about her self harming or that I thought, but then the nurse came out with a sad look on her face.

Oh no. I thought. She died on the table. Dammit. This is all my fault. I hated the fact that I didn't say anything.

''So I got some bad news and I got some good news. You guys decide what you want first.'' She said quietly. I didn't like the tone of her voice.

I shook Michael and Ashton awake and they saw the nurse. They did exactly what I did when I first saw her. They stood up without hesitation looking wide awake.

''We want the bad news first.'' Cal said.

''Well...she had about 15-20 prescribed meds in her stomach that could kill her. Now the good news is that she lived...but, she's in semi-critical condition. Which in term, means that she needs to be in the ICU for about 2-3 days. So only one of you could go in there at a time. Sorry. She is stable though.''

Great. One more person that I can't see right now. The minute she wakes up, I'm gonna talk to her about her scars.

I can't stand to see her in pain. She needs to know that I'll be there for her when things take a turn for the worst. I know that she doesn't like me, and I know that she probably won't ever, but I don't care. It's worth a shot. I think I'm in love with her.

Calum wouldn't ever allow it though. At least I'm pretty sure.

She tried to overdose. When? We were all with her the whole da- oh my gosh. She went to the bathroom with a big plastic bag full of orange looking bottles. The nurse said prescribed. Prescribed med bottles are orange. She took it while me and the boys where practicing.

15-20 pills. I think that there where 4 or 5 pill bottles in that bag. Which means...there where more than 15-20 in her system. Why would she try to overdose. She has a lot of people that love her. Especially me. I need to figure out why this is.
