25. Honesty

Tim looks at me, his blue eyes searching mine.  The bars in the ceiling cast their shadow over his face, but his eyes are in a space full of light.  

"What-what are you doing here?" I stammer.  He walks towards me.

"I went to your apartment and Smith was there.  He brought me here and told me that you were in trouble.  I-"

"I don't want you here.  You need to leave-"

"Why are you here?  You look awful.  Why are you locked up, this isn't right-"


"Ragan, I'm sorry about the fight.  I just exploded, I-"

"I killed James." I blurt out before he can finish.  He looks up at me.


"I'm the murderer.  I killed all those people.  Ming said I was being controlled by some dark matter but I don't care what she says, I'm guilty."

"You, you killed James?" Tim repeats, as if thinking out loud.  His face then turns angry.  "You KILLED James?!" He bellows, stepping fully into the light.  "You murdered my brother!  You killed him!?"

"Yes, I have no recollection of doing it, but they found my DNA in his body, just like every other victim."

"I can't believe this.  I trusted you, Ragan!"

"I guess we both made mistakes." I tell him.  He goes and rests his head on the wall, as if trying to wrap his head around what I just told him.

"I-I, I'm so confused." He gets out.  I feel something twitch within me.

"I'm just as confused as you are. Ming says that a dark matter from the moonstone would take control of me when I was sleeping and vulnerable."

"You killed my brother." Is all Tim replies.  I walk up to him and touch his arm.

"Tim, I'm so sorry, I-"

"Get off of me!" He cries out, pushing me away from him.  "Stay away from me."  I start to back up, hands up.  he paces around the room, running his hands through his blonde hair.

God, how I missed that hair.

"I can never say or do anything to get you to forgive me, I know.  I-"

"I loved you." Tim cuts me off.  I freeze, my heart feeling like it's being clenched.

"What-" I manage to get out.  Tim looks up, then at me, then at the floor, tears in his eyes.

"I frickin love you, and you just keep tearing me apart more and more.  You killed my brother.  And yet I'm still standing here thinking about how much I want to kiss you, while at the same time I want to smash your skull into a wall over and over again.  I-"

I look at him, mouth agape.  I feel tears starting to well up in my eyes.  He looks at me, angry and sad tears running down his face.


"I hate you, Ragan." He rasps.  "I hate you, so much." He slams his arms into the wall, his head following suit.  He falls to his knees, and shakes.

I look at him and start feeling sick.  I back up into the corner and curl up into a ball, afraid and upset.


I wish I was dead.
