7. Friends

I was out on my new bicycle with Kimberly, Edward, Sasha and Natalia.

"Finally, I can't believe it's summer" said Kimberly.

"I know right?" said Natalia.

"Who wants to get off the path?" said Sasha.

"Let's go" said Edward. 

"But that's dangerous" I said.

"Oh come on, you need to learn how to have some fun" said Sasha.  "We can have fun doing something else which is safer" I said, doubtfully to Sasha.  "Oh come on Amber, let loose" said Natalia.  "It'll be a blast" said Edward.  My nine year old mind was indecisive.  "Amber is right" said Kimberly.  "We should stay on the path" she continued.  I smiled.  "You guys are seriously no fun" said Sasha as Natalia groaned.  "Guess we'll be going to our usual then" said Edward with a soft smile on his face.  I felt myself being shaken by the memory.

"Amber?" I heard someone say. 

"You're going to be ok" said the voice.  Is that an angel?  I felt myself shake again, this time distinguishing that it was physical.  "Amber!  Can you hear me?" said the voice.

"Is this heaven?  It's worse than I thought" I mumbled.

"She's coming around" said the voice chuckling.

I peeked my eyes open a bit, I was in the nurse's room and next to me was Josh.  "What happened?" I asked trying to sit up but slumped down with the pain I felt .  "You got a fractured rib" said Josh.  I remembered the fight, seeing it more clearly now.  "You also bruised your hand when you punched James, I gotta say that was impressive" said Josh.  "How long have I been out?" I asked.  "Half an hour?  Something like that" he said.  "Where is Lara?" I asked.  "They wouldn't let her in" he said.  "Then how did they let you..." I said, pausing.  "You fought James didn't you?" I said, noticing the bruise forming over his eye.  "Yeah" he said.  "Thank you. Why?" I said.  "I couldn't just stand there and watch him hurt you like that" he said.  "Where is James?" I asked anxiously looking around.  "He's at the hospital with a broken nose and a broken wrist" said Josh.  "Good, I did some damage at least, bastard" I said wincing.  "Josh, thank you for everything" I continued.  "Does that mean we're friends?" he asked.  "Yes" I said.  The nurse entered and ushered Josh out to inspect the damage more thoroughly.

Yes, no PE for 6 weeks and no school for the rest of the week but that also meant no gym, no sex and my parents getting me everywhere themselves.  Dang it.  Damn James.  May he rot in hell.  Once outside of the nurses office after she gave me pain killers and bandaged my rib cage and hand, Josh was waiting along with Ashley.  Ashley never talked to me.

"I just want to say I'm sorry for what James did to you" she said, then she walked away.

"Good to know that some people still have a conscience" I muttered to Josh.

Josh snorted.  "What?" I said. 

"Look who's speaking.  If I didn't know you I would think you had no conscience as well" he said.

"Pfft, I'm dead inside, I have no feelings.  Nah, I'm not even human" I said, intent on controlling my breath.

Josh laughed.  "You're a funny girl when you're in pain Amber, not quite as scary and certainly more grumpy" he said.  "Just let me take it easy will you?" I said, not in the mood for arguing.  "Your parents are outside" he said. "You talked to my parents?" I said, shocked.  Oh no.  "Yeah, they even mentioned something about me coming over someday, bring my sister to tag along" he said.  He noticed my mortified expression.  "I'll just refuse if they offer ok?" he said.  I nodded eternally grateful.  Josh gave me a soft half hug and returned to class.
