After Tuesday Zach hadn't talked to me for two days. This is why I don't let people in. They see the real me and think I'm a monster. Probably because I am.
After I let those thoughts back into my mind, nightmares fill my dreams. I wake in a cold sweat screaming. Callie always comes in and asks if I'm okay, but every time I just tell her to go away.
But the thing is that my nightmares aren't just about what I did it's about Zach too. Me killing him or him killing me. That's the worst one.
As it's now Thursday I stand up. All I want to think about is Zach. My mind wanders to him. I'm not sure if I'll be going to the fight tonight either.
After I took a shower and got dressed, did my makeup I walked downstairs Zach wasn't there.
I frowned getting into my truck and leaving. At school Zach avoided me. After I went home so angry with myself.
I'm going to the fight.
Once I was there and my name was called I got on the stage. I pushed all my energy and anger into this fight.
I moved swiftly and strongly. After the fight I got off. I didn't see Zach. Then someone whispered in my ear.
"I'm sorry" by now I know that voice. That's Zach.
I quickly turned around to see him. He was gone. They called his name and he was one the stage. Our eyes locked for a split second then he turned away.
I watched him fight. I watched his technique. He really was great. Once he was done I ran trying to find him but he was already gone.
I woke up on the cold hard ground. I stood up and looked around. It was a dark room with cement floors. Only one light was on. I started walking towards it. A person was standing there.
As I got closer I recognized her as myself. A reflection almost. Still in fighting clothes. Then a table appeared with a gun on it.
"Take it" said a voice a didn't recognize
My reflection picked it up and I saw the first child I killed. A little girl wearing a pink dress. I cover my mouth in horror.
"You know what to do" said the voice
She aimed the gun.
"Noo!" I screamed then the gun fired
I watched again as the light left her eyes and the color drained from her skin.
Then Zach appeared and the gun was gone. My reflection and I said the same thing.
"You are a monster" he said to the reflection
Tears started to roll down my cheeks. My mouth was hanging open.
Zach turned to me.
"And you. Your just horrible. I hate you" he said lifting my chin then dropping it
My reflection was gone and so was Zach.
The words I hate you echoed threw the room getting louder and louder. I tried to run but I went no where. I sat on the ground crying.
I sat up screaming in my bedroom.
Callie rushed in.
"Lexi are you all right" she asked
I nodded yes breathing heavily.
She nodded and left.
