"How long was I asleep?"
"Not long. Actually, you just got here."
I get up from the bed and start walkibg towards the door.
"You should rest for a bit."
I wave to her from behind while I leave the nurses ofice.
English should be almost over. I might as well go back. I need to get my stuff anyway. I bump into some dude. Shit. It's Todd.
"Andrew!♡", he says in a childish tone.
"You look fantastic right now. What am I saying your allways..."
"Stop what? Talking about how great you are?"
"No! Well yeah, that and stop talking to me in general! Stay away from me!"
"I can't, the temptation would be too irresistable.♡"
"Because you are my Andy!♡"
The moment I reach the for the door I hear a ear splitting shriek! I open the door as fast as possible.
The windows has shattered and pieces flew everywhere. No one has been hit except for Kayla with cuts all over. Her face is soaked with tears while wispering to herself, "I can't do this." She looks petrified by the sight of blood.
"Andrew! Andrew quick! Please take Kayla to the nurse's office."
Miss Sarah and the others look terrified. Terrified of Kayla! It's not her fault the window broke. I mean I know she's clumsy, but she's not that clumsy. It has been very windy lately, so it could've just been the the pressure or the force of the wind of some sort. I know that glass breaks when it's hot but gets cooled right away. Or was it the other way around?
"Let's go Kayla."
I put my arm around her to reassure her that I'm here for her. She seems to be frozen of shock. I walk with her, guide her, on the way there because she is too traumatized to move on her own. The rosyness of her cheek has disappeared and been replaced by a pâle expression. As if she seen a ghost.
Todd follows behind us quietly. So quiet, that I didn't realise he was there utill we got to the nurses office. It was empty. The nurse must've left for her break. I mean, even nurses need time off. I help Kayla sit on the bed while Todd got the first aid kit. Thankfully, the cuts weren't that deep. I take the cotton, put some alcohol on it and dab the wounds on her arms.
"You're pretty good at this." Wispered Kayla
"Yeah, well I have a younger brother who used to allways get into trouble. Our parents weren't allways around, busy with stuff, so I was usually the one taking care of him."
Even though I barely know Kayla, I feel like I could trust her with anything. Of course, I haven't forgotton about Todd. I just want to open up enough for her to know I trust her.
"My parents weren't allways there either. I didn't have a sibling to care for thought. I think it's nice that you two are close."
I smiled and take a new cotton to continue cleaning the cuts.
"And I'm Todd!♡"
We both turn our heads towards Todd. Why is he allways like this?
"Look at me."
Kayla turns her face back to me. I start to dab at her cheek. We stare into each other's eyes. The green is as shiny as glass and yet so vibrant. The blue is bright like sky blue. Somehow, I've seemed to have lost myself in her eyes. I feel like I'm diving into a deep ocean with green light shinning and guiding me through.
Suddenly, I feel into a deep emotion of loneliness. It's not quite the kind that I've felt before. This is a more sad feeling. A feeling as if I had everything and yet nothing of my own, not even myself. This is something I don't understand. What is this feeling?
Now I feel warmth. A soft and calming feeling. It's small, yet bright enought to rid me from the sadness. Well, not really. The sadness is still there and yet this small light seems to make everything fade away. But what if the light goes out?
I start to see a person take form. Is that... me?
"Andrew? Andrew, what's wrong?" Kayla's voice is so calming.
"You just seemed to space out for a minute. Is everything okay?"
"Awwww! My pweshious Andy!♡"
"I said I'm fine. Drop it, okay?"
For some reason I feel as if I'm on fire. I'm sweating like crazy and I can't see straight. Shit. Shit. Shit.
"Your face is red." I try to get away, but Kayla places her hand on my forehead. "Jeez, your burning up! You should go home and rest!"
"I said I'm fine now fuck off."
I can help myself. I don't need help. I don't want to cause you trouble. You've been throught enough. I don't want to give you more stress. Fevers aren't that bad. Besides, if you help me, then I'll owe you one later.
"Andrew, you need to rest!"
Shit. Shit. Shit. If I don't get back soon I might just...
