It's Monday and I just walked out of the principal's office. He just finished suspending me for the fight of Friday, for a total of two weeks. You wanna know what I think........I. Don't. Give. A. Single. F*ck.
I walk down the hall way towards the exit of this hell hole, but not before stopping at Gilbert's locker and writing FREAK in big letters on it. 30 minutes later I was at home watching (f/ tv show). I heard a knock at my door and I get up to answer it. I open the door but there was no one there.
I look down and see a small yellow bird sitting on a black box no bigger than it. It flies away and into some bushes on my neighbor's front yard. I lean down and pick up the box and go back inside. I lift the lid off the box and inside was a gold chain attached to a half-heart pendent, like a friendship necklace. I take the necklace out and look for a tag on the box, or something that could tell me who it's from. I found nothing. I put the chain back in the box and put in the table in the living room. I'm not gonna wear in until I at least get an idea of who it might be from. I sit on the couch and go back to watching TV.
~3 hours later~
I start to get a little bored and decide to just go for a walk. I put in my (f/c) sneakers, and blue sweat shirt, and some jeans. I grab my keys and my cell phone and head out the door. I start walking down the street and come up to an intersection. I see car coming fast. I wait on the corner for it to pass. It stops at the cross walk and the man inside waves for me to go ahead. I wave back as a thank you and started crossing. I hear a car speeding and the next thing knew I was on the ground with pain surging through my body. I see and red sports with blue flames speeding away. I hear someone scream my name before everything goes black.
I was in a hospital waiting room pacing back and forth. I was waiting for a doctor to come out and tell me how (Name) was doing. I remember following her down the street, hoping to get a chance to talk to her and apologize....even though she may not have let me. I was horrified when she got run over.
Finally man in a lab coat came out and approached me. "Do you know Ms. (Last name)?" "I'm her friend. Is she going to be ok?" "She's stable but she does have a cracked skull and a broken arm, and other small injures. But she will be ok." "Can I see hear?" "Of course." He showed me to her room. She was asleep and had a cast on her arm. I sat in a chair by her bed. I start feel tears form in my eyes. Maybe if I had called her....she would't be here. Then all the memories of our high school life and how I treated her.
"Hey Gilbert, you're a cool guy right?"
"Then what are you doing with a loser like (Name)?"
"Uhhh....d-don't worry....she's nobody important."
"(Name)! I-I-I-I just-"
"Good to know."
I start crying as guilt begins to build up in me again. "If you think crying is gonna get me to forgive you you're wrong." I look up and see (Name) wide awake. "Go find your hospital room." "I'm sorry." I rush in and wrap my arms around her. I whisper "I'm sorry." over and over. I could tell she was surprised since she didn't stop me, but she didn't hug me back either. "Gilbert.....go home." "W-What?" I pull away from the hug I was giving her. "Go home." "But (Name) I-" "Gilbert please! Just go home." She looked out the window and away from me. I didn't want to.....but I left.
I stared out the window as he left the room. Part of me wanted to forgive him....but most of me didn't. I then realize something I didn't notice before. He was wearing a gold chain around his neck. The chain looked just like the necklace I got this morning. Was he.....the one that left it? The only way to find out was to see if his chain had a half-heart pendent on it, and for the first time in years......I wanted to see him.
