4. Four

“Jacob . . . . . Jacob . . . . . Wake up Jacob, Please!” I hadn’t opened my eyes yet but I could hear the fear in her voice. She was scared and I couldn’t leave her like that but I was too weak to open my eyes. I felt like I was having some type of Night mare. I could feel her lying next to me, her hot breathe against my arm and her head across my chest. She was crying, I had never seen Emma cry and I probably never would but it was almost comforting to know that she was there with me, I wonder how long I had been unconscious for, maybe a couple hours at the most, hopefully.

Emma had fallen asleep crying on my chest, the beat of my breathing seemed calm her almost, sending her into a light slumber. I was slowly building up my strength but the pain in my stomach wasn’t going away. After what felt like an hour of trying I was able to lift my arm and place it over Emma, it was exhausting but worth it. I wanted to feel her, I wanted her warmth to calm me and I wanted her to know that I was still here. She snuggled deeper into my chest and our legs tangled, I felt my heart flutter with happiness.

We lay there like that for what felt like hours, knowing that she was her made this the happiest moment of my life. I had all my strength now and was able to open my eyes, it was still a struggle but I wanted to see her. Her blonde hair was in tangles, her face was red and she lay in an uncomfortable position just so she could be close to me. She is one of the strongest people I know and she was mine, mine and mine only.

The sun light shone through the crack in the curtain and into my eyes. As Emma’s breathing began to quicken I knew that she was waking up. I shock her arm slightly but she only shooed me off. I chuckled to myself.

“Emma” I said, my voice barely a whisper. “Emma, time to get up” I kissed her forehead and her eyes fluttered open, like something from sleeping beauty.

“Jacob!” she said maybe a bit too loud “Your okay!” She wrapped her arms around my neck and pecked me on the check. She began to cry again, but this time happy tears. “You scared me” she whispered and squeezed me tight “what happened?” she stared up at me with glassy eyes.

“I . . . . . I don’t know, I got that feeling again, when there is a hollow near but this time only stronger” I wrapped my arms around her and held her so tight that she wouldn’t be able to wriggle away.

“Are you saying that there is a hollow nearby? Worry spread across her face.

“Yes? . . . . . .No? . . . . . . Maybe? I don’t know” I let out a loud sigh and avoided making any eye contact.

“Do you realise that you just gave every possible response to that question?” Emma chuckled and placed a hand on mine, I smiled. “I love you Jacob” She looked up at me ashamed. “I never got a proper chance to tell you, I was barely conscious last time I said that and I wanted to make it up to you for all the stupid things that I’ve done, you have protected us, put up with Enoch’s bull shit and been our eyes. I could never repay you for what you’ve done.

“Emma” I began. I was lost for words, I didn’t know what to say. I looked down at her with wide eyes. “I love you too”
