I watched as she closed the door, and I cursed at myself.
I grabbed the pillow behind me and threw it at the door.
So I save the girl of dreams life and she can’t even look me in the eyes. Nice going, Jeremy.
It's all your fault, said a voice in my head. You’re the reason she has bags under eyes and doesn’t eat completely.
I banged the back of my head on the wall behind.
She doesn’t love you, Jeremy.
I blinked a couple of times, trying to ignore the voice.
She’s only helping you because you saved her life. But we all know she doesn’t love you, she loves Eric.
“Shut up,” I whispered to myself, hitting my head again. I wanted it to stop.
Eric, her boyfriend for God knows how long. Eric the guy she loves. And what are you? Nothing but her best friend's cousin who saved her life.
“Shut up,” I said again.
You’re nothing to her. And now you’re going to die for her.
This time I yelled it.
And I realized this was all in my head.
I groaned. Something wasn't right with me.
I passed my fingers through my hair as I looked at my leg.
Why was I alive? It didn’t make any sense. I shouldn’t have woken up when I passed out.
I shouldn’t have, but I had done.
And I didn't know why.
There was knock on the door and my head shot up, hoping it was Ella.
But it wasn’t.
It was Jake. And Ricky?
“You look terrible,” Jake said, his hands in his pocket.
“Thanks,” I said, sarcastically. I looked at Ricky. “Come here to hack my head off? Where’s your axe?”
He shook his head. “No. I came to apologize for...trying to kill you,” he said, looking at the ground.
“No worries,” I said, smirking. “I would have done the same thing.”
His head snapped up. “Really?”
My smirk grew wider. “Of course. I would have blown your brains out.”
His face dropped. “Good to know.”
We stared at each other for a moment as silence rang in the room.
Then we burst out laughing.
I couldn't laugh that much because I started coughing. Everytime I coughed I felt like my heart was going to give out. When I stopped, I noticed Jake was holding something.
"What's that?" I asked him.
He looked down at his hand as if he had forgotten about it.
"It’s a radio we found in the basement, but it’s busted. We were told that maybe you could fix it.”
He walked over to the bed and handed it to me.
“Yeah, I can fix this,” I said, looking at the small box with cut off wires.
