Chapter 9

I run to the bathroom. I have never thought about being in this kind of pain. I never even thought I'd be in this situation. I want everything and everyone to go away. I can't take it anymore. Maybe...no I can't think like that. My head is throbbing from when I hit it. I lay down on a towel for a few minutes. My head is still killing me but I then remember that Elliot is still in my room. I get up and head out to my room. Elliot's still there laying down on my bed.
"Hi." I say in a really weak voice as I'm standing at the door.
"Hi." He says in a really strong voice.
"I'm sorry."
"You have nothing to be sorry about. Come here." I walk over to my bed and sit down on the edge. Careful to not bump him in the legs.
"Look it's getting late and we have school tomorrow. And I'm tired."
"Okay I'll see you tomorrow." He says while he's getting up. He leans down to me and gives me a hug goodbye. I read his mind he wants to kiss me. So do I. I look into his eyes lift my head and kiss him on the cheek. Then he leaves.
I walk to the bathroom to take my shower. As I'm getting out of the shower my cell phone rings. It's Sam!
"Hey Sam!!!"
"Hey Alex your in a good mood."
"Well..."
"What did you do with Elliot?"
"Okay well I came home from school and someone punches me, long story. Well Elliot brought me to the nurses." So I ended up telling Sam all about my day including the nasty email. "And then he just left and so I kinda well read his mind. He wanted to kiss me but he didn't know if he could or not. So I just looked into his eyes and stood on my tip toes and kissed him on the cheek." She's screaming into my ear now.
"Alex! Alex! Alex! Oh my gosh! Oh my gosh! I'm so happy for you!"
"Thanks. Umm I'm going to bed I'll talk to you tomorrow. Good night. Love you."
"Love you."
As I'm ending the call I walk over to put my phone in its charger, which just happens to be right by my bed. I flop down on my bed, cover myself in my blankets and try to fall asleep.
Fifteen minutes later I'm still not asleep. This is not going to work. I get out of my bed and head downstairs to get a glass of water. I fill my cup up from the sink and take a sip. It tasted so good I decided to drink another cup. After two cups of water I put my glass in the sink and head back upstairs to my room.
I flop down onto my bed and try to fall asleep. I still can't fall asleep. This is so annoying. I hate it when I can't fall asleep. Ugh! It starts to rain outside. I look out my window as all the rain drops are falling down. All of them are unique. Some are big. Some at small. Some are fat. And some are tiny. They are just like snow flakes. No snow flakes are the same as another. Then I realize that's the same as people. Not one person in this world is the same as another. We are all unique.
Maybe tomorrow won't be as bad as today. Maybe I'm just over reacting. As I'm finishing my thought my mind shuts off for the night.
