10. -10- Midnight Madness

I stare at the wall,in the dark,thinking. I've been up for hours already,I can never fall asleep. I hear a noise out in the...wherever it was....and I walk to my door,slowly opening it. I swing it open,holding a math textbook up and creep down the hall. I find destroyed coffee cup pieces all over the place,coffee in a puddle. But worse,my mother lying on the floor. Tears stings my eyes and I drop the textbook and run back down the hall. I bang on Chelsea's door,then Aerianna's. "Chelsea! Aerianna!" I scream and they open their doors. 

"What?! What?!" Chelsea asks,panicking. 

I grab their hands and drag them down the hall to the dining room. I drop to the floor next to Mom but Chelsea pulls me back. "Aerianna,call Dad. I'll call the police. Kayla," She pauses. "Call Michael." I nod quickly and probably too much. I run to my room and grab my cellphone. I quickly push in Michael's phone number. It rings and I pace my bedroom only to have him not answer. I call again. And again. He finally answers.

"Kayla? It's 1 am. What's wrong?" Michael groggily asks.

"Chelsea told me to call you! My mom-" I'm cut off by sirens. 

"What? I can't hear you over the sirens!" He says.   

"Hold on!" I say and run out to Chelsea and Aerianna. Aerianna is still on the phone with Dad,and Chelsea faces me. 

"Why did I call him?" I ask.

"Tell him that Aerianna will call him later." She says and turns to the perimedics.


I slowly walk over to where Calum,Michael,and Luke are sitting. Luke's eyes widen as I sit down,noticing the bags under my eyes. "What's up with you?" He asks. 

"My mother died." I whisper. Luke and Calum lean in. 

"What?" Calum asks.

"My mother died." I repeat,but at a normal volume. 

"I'm so sorry." Luke and Calum say in unison.

"Died of a heart attack." I say and notice Ashton running up to us. 

"Hey. So,lunch?" He asks,sitting down as we wait for the bell to ring. 

Michael nods. Ashton looks over to me.

"Hey. What's wrong?" He asks,noticing my tears slipping out of my eyes.

"Her mom died last night." A voice rings and we all look up to find Lucas.

"Lucas! Hey,sorry about your mom." Ashton replies as I stand up. 

All I can do is hug him,tightly. He hugs back. 

I hear Ashton lightly saying, "Her brother."  

"We know." Michael answers quietly. 


The last bell of the day rings and everyone gets up,grabbing textbooks and binders and phones. Calum and Luke come up to me as I struggle to shove my books into my backpack. Slowly,Calum takes both my books and my backpack. Luke takes my binder and textbooks.

"Kayla? May I chat with you?" The teacher,Mrs. Charton,asks and the guys look at me. 

"We'll be outside." Calum whispers before they both leave,taking all my stuff,except for my phone and earbuds. 

I make my way to her desk and she smiles at me. In her eyes,I can see what I used to see her as. My aunt. Not my maths teacher. My aunt. She stands up and stands in front of me,her eyes tear up. 

"I see her in you. I was there before school. And Lucas stopped by earlier," She hugs me as I begin to cry. "I'll be at your house to help move and pack things to go to your father's house." 

We pull apart and I nod,wiping tears away,but they come. She smiles and nods toward the doir before she sits down at her desk again. I grab my phone and earbuds and leave. Calum,Michael,Ashton,and Luke stand up. Ashton carries my textbooks,Michael carries my backpack,and Luke carries my notebooks and chapter books. Calum holds me as we all walk together to,sadly,pack my stuff.
