Chapter 23

783 37 4

I woke up laying in the grass near the edge of the cliff. Johnny was tossing and turning his head and was sweating. I thought he was hot so I took off his coat. He kept sweating so I unbuttoned the first 3 buttons of his shirt. I then figured he was having a nightmare...

He suddenly jumped into my arms. I calmed him down by hugging him and rubbing his back. He was surprised but soon wrapped an arm around my neck and buried his face in my hair.

He pulled away and looked at me with wide eyes.

"It's alright, it was only a dream...", I said softly as he combed his fingers through his thick hair.

He looked at me again and gave a soft smile...

"I'll bring you some food, wait here...", I whispered before standing up and walking away.

I ran through the forest and suddenly tripped on one of the roots, falling flat on my face. Johnny must've seen what happened, he came running and helped me sit up. He placed my head gently on his bare chest. I could feel the warmth of his hand caressing my hair...

"Don't run... You always end up hurting yourself...", he said softly kissing my head.

I nodded and stood up as he held my hand, he remained sitting as I walked down the forest track as quickly as I could...

I got on my bike and peddled down the street. I stopped at the sandwich shop and grabbed a huge sandwich for us to share. I searched for plastic knives and took one.

I then placed the sandwich in a plastic bag and got onto my bike before peddling as fast as I could. I dropped my bike on the side of the building and ran towards the forest...

Branches scratched my hands and arms as I kept holding my dress up while running with the plastic bag in my hand.

When I arrived, Johnny was sitting and staring out at the ocean as it shined in the morning sun...

I walked up to him picking up his coat and placing it in my lap as I sat down crossing my legs.

I placed the sandwich in his hands and he looked at me with a smile.

"Thank you...", he said quietly.

He wasn't acting like he usually did... He was... Different...

"What was your nightmare about?", I asked gently rubbing his back with my hand.

He suddenly stopped unpacking the sandwich and looked out at the ocean, slightly squinting his eyes, lost, deep in his thoughts...

He didn't respond, he just looked at me with sad eyes and stared at me.

"Sorry, I did not mean to barge into your privacy...", I said looking down at his coat and playing with the buttons.

He sighed and unpacked the sandwich. He looked inside and saw the plastic knife, he immediately closed the bag and threw it behind him. The sandwich in his hands...

I looked at him confused why he was scared of a plastic knife, it was plastic... I stood up and took the plastic knife and sat back down beside him. He looked at me and snatched the knife out of my hands. Without hesitation, he snapped it in half and threw it off the cliff.

His face was full of anger and fear...

He looked at me and then back at the sandwich, he gave me half and started eating the second half. I looked at the sandwich and took a bite from it. He kept eating while staring out at the ocean.

"I can not bare to look at you in this state...", I said softly.

That sentence was probably one of his most caring...
