Pain like nothing I had ever felt before ripped through my whole body as I smashed into the floor. I’d tried to turn so that I could protect DJ as much as I could, I knew he would get hurt, but it was the best I could do under the circumstances. Thankfully, I landed feet first instead of on my back. One of my ankles cracked, my knees buckled and popped, and we fell forwards. I immediately panicked because DJ was clinging to my chest. If I fell forward I could crush him and he would hit his head. I put my hand on the back of his head and put my elbows out to try and keep some of my weight off of him. Pain coursed up my already damaged arm making the air whoosh out of my lungs. I twisted my body and rolled slightly, my shoulder and hips connecting with the cold hard floor, next. The side of my head struck the concrete making my eyes go slightly unfocussed. Then I felt the burning on my lower body.
People were shouting, screaming around us. I could still hear the glass tinkering to the floor around us so I knew that merely seconds had passed since I’d jumped, but it felt like an eternity. An eternity of pain and horror. DJ was still clinging to me as I screamed and thrashed my legs as the burning got worse. I squeezed my eyes shut, rolling onto my back, gritting my teeth, just wishing I was dead already because this was too much. This was the worst pain imaginable; actually, I wouldn’t even be able to imagine how much this hurt in my worst nightmares.
I could hear people shouting, the voices getting closer, something was thrown over us both, people slapping at my legs making the pain worse. I knew I should roll over and over, but I couldn’t move, the pain had made my whole body stiff. DJ was crying on my chest, his arms still tight around my neck, just like I’d told him. I was immensely proud of him; he must have been terrified in there.
I could hear Rosie screaming my name, screaming DJ’s name, but it was further away. I turned my head in the direction of her voice; she was practically fighting with two police officers as she tried to get past, shouting at them that she was with us. I tried to smile but I couldn’t, it just hurt too much. Her eyes locked on mine and in that moment we were completely alone. Her brown eyes were the most beautiful things I had ever seen and I was silently thankful that I got to see them one more time.
DJ’s weight was shifted on me, making me groan. He screamed, his arms tightening on my neck making my head hurt. “You need to let go now. We need to let the doctors look at him!” a guy said sternly, trying to lift him off of me again.
DJ’s arms tightened even more as he buried his face in the side of my neck. I could feel his tears wetting my skin, it was actually quite nice because my skin was so sore and tight. “No! Nate tolded me not to let go until he said so!” DJ shouted fiercely. I smiled and closed my eyes. That’s my boy. I swallowed awkwardly, gulping down the fresh air but it just made me cough, the small movement of coughing made the pain even worse and I couldn’t help but groan.
“Let go now, come on, quickly!” the guy repeated. I could feel DJ moving, the guy was obviously trying to pry him off of me.
“NO! NATE?” DJ screamed.
I swallowed again, willing my voice to work. “It’s okay, kid. You can let go now. Go with the doctor,” I rasped. Then he was gone. I closed my eyes again, I couldn’t feel exactly where the pain was, it was just everywhere, too many places to count. There was a commotion off to my right, I turned my head just in time to see Rosie sweep DJ into her arms, crying hysterically as she kissed all over his face and hugged him. She buried her face into his hair, and squeezing her eyes shut. I smiled at the sight of it, all of this I was feeling right now, was totally worth it. I would go through this again and again just to see them reunited like that.
