The only people awake now were Jessie, Kyle and I. Jessie still seemed intimidating, so I decided to go back over to Kyle. Kyle now had a big gauze bandage wrap, on his shoulder.

“Claire fixed you up good huh?” I started.

“I thought you’d be asleep by now.” Kyle replied.

“Nope. Wide awake just like you.”

There was an awkward silence as we both stared down at the ground thinking of what to say next. What Kyle said was pretty random.

“You know how you said that what you told me about your old life was really all there was to it? Well, you’re a horrible liar! I talked to Talia and she told me all about you!” Kyle explained with a devious grin.

“Great.” I said sarcastically.

“For starters, she told me you guys had a secret hiding place by Lake Luv. You guys would go there and talk about boys.” He smirked, “You also would go to this pizza shop to talk quietly. She also told me that you are hard to get to know. I don’t believe the last part Talia told me.”

“Is that so?” I joked.

“Mmhm. You seem pretty easy to figure out. So I have a game we can play!”


“I ask a question, and you answer. Then you ask a question, and I answer.” He proposed.

“Isn’t that called a conversation?” My own joke made me and him laugh.

“I’ll go first,” Kyle said thinking of a question, “Any siblings?”

“Nope. I’m the only child. My turn?” he nodded and I thought, “Do you have a girlfriend, or a secret crush?”

“No girlfriend, but I do have a secret crush.” Kyle answered quickly.

This made me feel sad for some reason. He liked someone. Oh well, I mean, why do I even care? It’s not like I like him.

“Umm, let’s see…” He pondered, “Oh! Do you think Madi will wake up soon?”

I was stunned, immediately frozen. Why would he ask that? I had no freaking clue when, or if she would ever wake up! Suddenly I was filled with rage. That rage soon was covered by sadness and fear.

“Look, I should get some sleep.” I say looking sorrowful.

“Charlotte, I’m… I’m sorry. That was a stupid question. Let’s keep playing.” Kyle apologized.

“No.” I said shortly as I slinked off to lay down by Talia and Madi.

I felt bad for leaving Kyle in the dust again, but I wasn’t in any kind of mood to talk about Madi waking up. If she ever would.

I just layed down on a pillow and grabbed a thin sheet off of a shelf. It wasn’t very comfortable, but I had no choice. I drifted slowly off to sleep, hoping tomorrow would be better.
