"It will all be over soon, okay?"
"Okay." I whispered back.
"I spoke to the principal and it will totally be fine if you took some rest at home, I told him to not tell anyone about what happened, since you don't need anything more going on in your life, okay? You can take a week off. I was given permission to take care of you and make sure you're fine and get you back to school whenever you decided to, since I was the one who supposedly found you and saved you."
"Woah, Jer, so much already?"
"And hello, I was the one who saved your scrawny ass!" I laughed, well tried to.
Jeremy's lips were still swollen up a bit, his forehead was covered with a huge bandage. And he held an ice pack, which he kept using for his cheeks and eye every now and then.
"Hey! What? I thought I would be all hero and save you and hit all of them and shit, who knew it was so much more difficult then they showed in movies. How the hell do you beat up 3 people plus save the girl man? Such liars I tell you!" He pouted.
I giggled again, "Yeah yeah, now stop giving excuses. We're alright."
"Yes we are."
He leaned down and kissed my forehead.
We were in the hospital room, waiting for the nurse to return back with the results. Since mom had left so much money with me it was enough to pay hospital bills and take care of my health.
"ANNA OH MY GOD WE WERE SO WORRIED. SHIT" Maddison yelled as soon as she opened the door.
"Damn you smartass, we're in the hospital!" I yelled back, not annoyed though.
She burst out laughing. Then, came and hugged me tightly.
"Bitch, easy there, I'm kind of sore!"
"Oh" she blushed, pulling back.
As if on cue, Andrew, Mason, Lisa and Andy waltz inside. They all gave me something or the other, see, this is my family.
Jeremy got me chocolates.
Maddison got me an amazing 'get well soon' card with a collage of our pictures, and in the back she had written inspiring words about me. I was in awe.
Andrew got me beautiful flowers.
Mason got be a huge fluffy bear.
Andy got me pepper spray and we all burst out laughing. So thoughtful of him
Lisa got me, A LOT. She got me an entire makeup kit, and she totally used it on me. Well, I can't deny that I did look pretty so I decided to roll with it. She got me bracelets, a new dress and heels. Well, she sure spent a fortune.
Everyone was here, where was Ashton? I mean I know that I am supposed to be mad at him and loathe him, but at the end of the day he is my bestfriend. And, I can't stay mad at him for too long either. No matter what, there is NOTHING in this humongous world that could make me stop loving Ashton. When I said I loved him, I totally meant it.
'And when this is all gone, the pretty girl, the good life, I'll be standing there just by your side, like always. And you wouldn't even need to say a word. You know why? Because that’s what best friends do'
That, that’s exactly what I told Ashton. A year back, but I remember my promise, I remembered the words I said, and I will stick with them.
"Are you alright?" Maddison asked, as she came and sat down beside me.
"Gods Anna, you know better than to lie to your bestfriend!"
"Okay fine, but what do you want me to say Madds? I-I I am shocked and and I feel like crap because I couldn't fight back, I stood there and cried-cried until Jeremy came."
"Okay, you've got to be kidding me. Don't you see it? You must be blind then! YOU WERE THE HERO THERE, NOT JER. Woah, that rhymes. Oh, and no offence to you, Jer." Maddison replied.
"Yeah yeah, whatever. It’s a lot tougher in real life okay! Don't blame me!" He pouted.
Everyone in the room cracked up.
Now now, this world has to kinds of friends: friends who show pity and concern and friends who joke about everything but deep down care more than ever.
In a lot of books I have read, the girls who have gone through with rape cases and molestation and completely broke and don't know what to do with their life anymore? Its like they've lost a part of themselves. But me, I didn’t really have anything to loose, oh well except my virginity of course.
Seriously, you gotta stop with the sarcasm
Seriously, I gotta stop talking to myself.
When I say I have nothing to loose, it actually is true to quiet an extent. Mom and Dad, both are gone. I will NEVER see my parents again. People who think I'm over it are wrong. Hell, I will never be over the fact that I lost my parents. There is a huge hole in my life, and there is no filing to it, there will always be this emptiness in my heart, the lacking of my parents. It’s not easy, loss, it’s never easy. There are always just so many memories that you can't get away from, you never will. I'm not sad about that though, memories are good. I have good times spent with my mom. To be honest, I'm quite happy that she wasn't here to see what a mess I have made of myself and of my life. I won't be weak again.
