When We Run

Your life can change in a heartbeat.
I walked downstairs and when I came back, everyone was dead and everything was over. But I survived and I ran.


13. 13.

"Can we stop for a bit?" I ask.

"No." Evan calls back.

"I don't care that you're annoyed with me." I say. "It's dark and we all need to rest."

"Shut up, Holly."

"There's no need to be so disrespectful, Evan." Sam cuts in.

"You can shut up too."

"Everyone, be quiet!" I shout. "Evan, come on, don't just be spiteful. Even you need to rest." 

He caves in and we walk for a little while longer until find the remains of a subway tunnel. It's not completely hidden but if we jump down and walk a little further up to where the road hasn't completely caved in, we'll be more hidden. So we do and straight away, Sam is asleep. I just sit for a while, suddenly not tired. Evan, unfortunately has the same idea as me.

I wish we could just avoid each other. Because even though I kind of dislike him at the moment and he dislikes me too, we can't ignore the fact that we both have feelings for each other and we both know that we're both thinking it.

"You're a bitch, you know? You do nothing but complain when I'm just trying to get us all somewhere." he says after a while in silence.

I laugh, bitterly. "I know what you're doing. You're trying to insult me and annoy me to convince yourself that you don't have feelings for me-"

"I don't have feelings for you." he insists.

"Oh don't play that card." I say. "Let's just be honest, we have feelings for each other and for whatever reason you're choosing to ignore them. That's totally fine but you didn't have to lead me on first and be all horrible to me now."

"I know I was stupid." he says, standing up and scowling at the ground. "I know it wasn't logical, but I'm just human. There are some things I can't resist and one of them is you. I caved and then I realised I was stupid. Yes everything was so messed up and still is and I'm sorry. But let's just forget about it and not complicate things further."

When he tells me not to complicate things any further, I am already walking over to him, so I just decide to go the whole way and kiss him. I'm just expecting him to push away after that speech, but I try anyway and he ends up giving in and kissing me back. I walk backwards with him and lean on the wall, still kissing him. I know we shouldn't because it's just causing more heart break for later.

He pulls away and we both breathe for a second, but he doesn't move away. He keeps his hands on my face where they were before.

"Why did that just happen?" he whispers.

"No idea." I whisper back.

"I can't stay away from you anymore." he says.

"Then don't."

"I should..." he says, but he sounds like he's already lost his own argument. He looks at me and sighs. He seems kind of upset but I think he's just bothered that he gave in. I have a feeling he'll get over it. He kisses me again and we both lie down, ready to go to sleep.
