Some one to talk to. 24Her eyes started to tear up.
When she spoke her voice was hoarse. She was very weak. Having difficulty speaking.
"Why are you here"
"I was worried about you"
She closed her eyes. With no more energy she drifted into a deep sleep.
The door opened and a nurse walked in.
"May I speak with you in the hallway"
I left the room and closed the door.
Leaning against the wall.
The nurse told me more about the situation. She even asked me a few questions about Sasoto.
I know I promised her I wouldnt tell anyone but I couldnt keep things secret anymore.
I told the nurse everything.
A doctor came by.
The nurse walked over to him.
She came back and said she didnt need anymore information.
She walked away with the doctor, talking.
I went back into the room.
I pulled a chair up to Sasoto's bed & sat down.
Some one to talk to. 23We got in the car and rushed to the hospital.
I asked a nurse where her room is and ran to it.
I opened the door.
Sasoto was laying on the bed.
It was all over the floor, tables & sheets.
I examined her body with my eyes,
Her face, covered in bruises and cuts.
Her chest, heaving as she pant.
Bandages on her neck & around her right arm.
A leg brace on her left leg.
Stiches on her side.
I ran my fingers over them and she winced in pain.
She opened her eyes and looked up at me.
Some one to talk to. 21I was on my way to my parents house with my brother.
Spending the hollidays with them.
When we finnaly got there we went inside and greeted our mother.
I missed being here.
I feel at ease.
My father wasnt home.
We sat on the couch and watched the news, waiting for him to come from work.
Home with my mother and father.
Sitting on the front porch with them. Talking. Just an update on things.
Some one to talk to. 20I went to my room and went to bed.
I just couldnt believe Sasuke did that.
He really hurt her.
Sasoto was nowhere in sight.
I guess she wouldnt come to school after what happened.
Shes been absent for more than three weeks.
I hope shes ok
Thats all they do now is fight,
More than they usually did.
I just cant take it. Im sick of all this. The one person I could talk to about this....
The one person I cared for...
Doesnt feel the same way.
I feel lonely.
Some one to talk to. 19"Nani"
"I dont feel the same way."
She got up from the bed.
Walked out my bedroom.
Ran out the front door.
A trail of blood behind her.
I thought he felt the same way.
I feel like such a fool
I ran home with nowhere else to go.
Pain in my leg.
It didnt matter.
The throbbing in my chest felt much worse.
I was listening at the door.
I couldnt believe what I heard.
Some one to talk to. 18She opened her eyes. When I looked in her eyes all I saw was sorrow and pain.
I caressed her cheek. She put her hand ontop of mine and closed her eyes.
I told him everything.
I couldnt take it.
Keeping secrets. I just needed to get those things off my chest.
He held me in his arms. Rubbing my back.
"Just let it out"
"I love you"
Those three words echoed through my head.
She leaned in and kissed me.
She pulled away and looked up at me.
She seemed happy, but sad at the same time.
She looked like she was going to cry.
"What do you mean"
"I dont feel the same way"
