[Melinda's Point of View]
I never wanted to wake up. Why did I wake up? It only brought me misery. Nathan was in a coma. The head injury he got during the ambulance crash had set it off. It didn't help that he also got the injury from the bullet.
I didn't cry once my parents told me. I can't explain why I didn't because I just don't know. Maybe I was out of tears. Okay that was corny. I don't know what to do.
I was out of the hospital after a month. Apparently I got some broken bones during the accident and they're not going to heal as fast as I wish.
With a broken arm I went to Nathan's room. He had the machines that helped him breathe. A nurse was helping him move so blood could circulate.
"Evening." The nurse said.
"Evening." I said and took a sit on the arm chair. "Can he hear me?" I asked the nurse.
She gave me a sympathetic look. "I like to believe so." She answered.
"Talking to him might help him." She said.
"I brought a book to read." I said taking out a book I checked out of the small library the hospital had.
I did this for the next three months. Until John said he was taking him to England to see a doctor over there that could help him.
I couldn't say no, I had no saying in this. John was his father and he has every right to take him.
On August Nathan left Los Angeles and was transferred to a private hospital in England.
"You need to go back to school." My father told me over dinner in the middle of August.
I looked up from my food and raised an eyebrow. "School?"
"You can follow your dream to become a midwife." My mom chimed in.
"Your life cannot stop because of Nathan." My dad said and he's right.
Nathan wouldn't want me to mope around. He would want me to go on.
Right now I guess is good to answer what happened to Juan and Cesar Rodriguez. Juan was caught and sent to prison for attempted murder and other stuff. Point is that I didn't have to marry Cesar. Cesar took over his father, he's innocent since he had no idea about the gun things. My mom went to his home to get my stuff back. I was back living with my parents.
I turned eighteen. So I'm eighteen.
After making some calls my dad got me into a community college. I didn't want to rush things and overload my life with so many things at once. A four year university would be too much for me.
I lost all contact with Charles and Peter. I can't give an exact answer as to why, but I think it's because knowing their existence means that Nathan exist and it only hurts to even begin to think of Nathan. He was across the country and an entire ocean.
I had to go on with my life as selfish as it sounds. Our love has brought nothing but misery to us and everyone around us. Every time we came close to happiness something ALWAYS happened. It was foolish of us to think that our cursed-love could have a happy ending.
College was great. Rodrigo, Jeff and Brian went with me. Linda and Maya were Seniors in High School but would soon join us.
I got a job, I didn't need one but I needed something that would distract me, so I got a job at Panda Express.
Over the next several months life seemed normal and good. I would put on a smile from ear to ear. I would say 'I'm fine' so many times that I would lose track. But deep inside I was miserable.
"Come on, sing for us!" Brian yelled as we were out. It was Rodrigo's birthday.
"Please for me?" Rodrigo
Right now some girl was singing 'Rock Show' by Blink 182 and she was pretty good and she was challenging anyone who thought they could do better than her.
