11. Chapter 11

I couldn't attend school the next day, I woke up to a horrible stomach ache, means it's that time of the month again. "Hello? Bri? Where are you?" I got a phone call from Lindsy. "Can't come, stomach, sick" I struggled answering her. "Okay, I'm coming over after school" I just nodded and hung up the phone. 

I stumbled to the toilet to get some medicine and chugged a few down my throat. It'll take a while before the medicine will work. I laid back on my bed, rolling around. Tears started flowing down my cheeks uncontrollably. 

"Get up Bridgette!" I must have fallen asleep. "Gosh Bridgette! I actually was starting to think you were actually dead" Lindsy answered. "Um, where's Taylor" I say, rubbing my eyes still groggy from sleep. "Babysitting, she needs the money to buy the latest Gucci bag." "Haha, typical Taylor" 

"So how's your stomach?" Lindsy asked with concern. 

"Hmm, I better." I say, trying to stand, but topped over instead. 

"What happened? why are you dizzy? How many pills did you take?"

I raised my hand and pointed out 3 fingers"

"3! You're only supposed to eat 1, you idiot" Lindsy practically screamed at me.

"sorry, but I need to go now, I've got things to do at home. I left your homework downstairs. get well soon." With that she picked up her phone and left. Finally I could get back to sleep.

Five minutes later, I got a text from my one and only. 

"Hey sweetheart, I'm coming over in a while. I brought some chocolate and popcorn, what movie do you wanna watch?"

"that's why I love you" I typed back.

I looked outside my window and saw his car arrive. I stumbled downstairs to let him in. "Hi babe" I was so happy to see him. I walked over to him, but tripped over my feet. Before I landed on the floor, he quickly put his arms out to catch me. 

"Careful! You shouldn't have taken so many of those pills" He lifted me up bridal style and carried me to the sofa. i wrapped my arms around his neck, "let go Bridgette" I shook my head. "I need to play the movie" I made a kissy face. "fine", then only did I let go. 

"How did you know about that?" 

"Lindsy texted me, She said you were all woozy and stuff"

He put in a DVD, and brought out the popcorn and sat down next to me. I got a blanket and covered it over us. 

"So what did you pick?'

"You'll see"

I snuggled up close to him, and he put his arm around me. "How did you know I wanted to watch this. Percy Jackson is like my favourite movie!! Plus, Logan Lerman is so hot!" I squeal.

Logan cleared his throat when he heard the hot part. "Don't worry, you're much hotter"I say. "Yup!" He replied.

When the movie ended, I lay my head on his lap and felt his fingers through my hair. I loved that feeling, after a while I dozed off.
