⠀⠀⠀I groaned, and my spine felt all tingly and weird.

⠀⠀⠀"A little better." I managed to speak, my throat was aching though.

⠀⠀⠀What happened?" I tried to sit up and groggily stretched.

⠀⠀⠀Mr. Clarke smiled, "Well, you nearly passed out on us in the hall..."

⠀⠀⠀"Yeah, passed out on you..." Brittany mumbled.

⠀⠀⠀"What  was that?" The way the man could just suddenly turn from nice to hostile wasn't just impressive, it was terrifying.

⠀⠀⠀Brittany even flinched.

⠀⠀⠀She quickly made a face and looked at me, by the way she smiled I had a bad feeling. Being Brittany, she directed his attention back to me, "Well good job Sir, you're frightening Abby!" I was her sympathy distraction ticket.

⠀⠀⠀Once again, Brittany found the teacher's weakness.

⠀⠀⠀His broad shoulders seemed to drop and he seemed less scary. As he turned to me, his a lock of his black hair fell slowly into his eye. Slightly ticked off, he flicked it away and then leaned down, his large hands making indentations in the sheet, the corner of his mouth twitched up slightly, and then the smile strangely died halfway before it flowered into life.

⠀⠀⠀"Abby... Look, I know this is hard to tlak about." He started, "I know that you probably don't want to talk to me, of all people... But I would very much like to know what is going on." Brittany grumbled bitterly, but Mr. Clarke didn't take his blue eyes off me. It was supposed to be unsettling, but there was a sort of... warmth in them—I guess...

⠀⠀⠀He called by name, "Abby?" I stopped focusing on his lips and eyes and zoomed back to his whole face, blinking rapidly because I was so freakin embarrassed to be caught googgling at my homeroom teacher.

⠀⠀⠀What are you thinking!? Get your head in the game!

⠀⠀⠀"Y-yes...?" I answer.

⠀⠀⠀"You know you can trust me, right?" He asked.

⠀⠀⠀Brittany scoffed, "As if."

⠀⠀⠀"That's it!" Mr. Clarke spun around with so much force that he ripped the rug from underneath the lamp beside my bed causing it to tip over. When it fell and the bulb exploded with a loud POP!  We all stared in shock at the shards.

⠀⠀⠀"Well—" Brittany started but didn't finish.

⠀⠀⠀"Don't. You. Start." Mr. Clarke warned. He turned to me, his face still red. Either with embarskbment or anger... I didn't know which though. "Abby, I am always here to talk to..." He inhaled deeply and then sighed, "You know where I'll be..." and then he turned around and walked out the room.

⠀⠀⠀CLsoing the door behind him as he refused to look at Britanny and mumbled to himself about apologizing to Nurse Judy.

⠀⠀⠀After some silence Brittany spoke, "He's hot isn't he." She grinned at me when she saw my shocked face and laughed so hard she started snorting.

⠀⠀⠀"Brittany! Gosh!!!" I cover my face. "Shut up!"

⠀⠀⠀We both laugh until my sides hurt and the bell rings. "Wait, what?" I crane my head back to look through the jacked up old window blinds that is across the wall to my left and my eyes widen. "Did I...?"

⠀⠀⠀"Yep." Brittany spoke and popped the p. "You passed out for like..." She counted on her fingers, "For the whole day." She frowned and then snickered, "Aw Abby-kins, don't be mad!"

⠀⠀⠀"I am! I missed my Chemistry test!" I sigh and then lean back into the pillows that Brittany probably stole from the other beds for me. I groaned, "My mom's gonna kill me..."

⠀⠀⠀I should probably tell her to to put these back...

⠀⠀⠀"Hey, sleepy bunny." I glance back at Brittany who was looking over me, her dark blue eyes softer and less bad-ass, more motherly. "You sure you're okay?"

⠀⠀⠀Her brows knitted together to show how worried she was, "You've been acting so weird since you moved here... After five years, I finally get to see my best buddy from high school again—in person!—instead of chatting online!" She swallowed loudly and all of a sudden I felt sad, "But now she's totally freaking out... And—and..." She covered her mouth, unable to say anything more before the tears slid down her face.

⠀⠀⠀"Brittany," I held her other hand and shook my head.

⠀⠀⠀I should be mad that you don't believe that I didn't cut my wrist... but right now... Even I don't believe it... Am I losing my mind?

⠀⠀⠀I force myself to speak so I can't focus on my thoughts, "I'm not freaking out, I—" my lips froze and I felt my voice get stuck in my throat. Someone was watching. Something creaked and both me and Brittany looked up and gasped.

⠀⠀⠀The door to the room squeeked as it creepily moved back and forth. No one was behind it. And Brittany and I did not hear anyone in the other room. "What the f*ck..." Brittany whispered.

⠀⠀⠀I got shivers and spoke, "Don't worry Brtttany." I smiled drearily, "I know how hospitals freak you out-- well this is a nurses office... but yeah-- Maybe I will talk to you back at home...?"

⠀⠀⠀"Y-yeah..." Brittany rubbed her arm and nodded as she looked around the place. "Just come home early, this place gives me the creeps..." She muttered as she pinched my cheek playfully.

⠀⠀⠀I would have been okay with all of this. I really would have.
But unfortunately I didn't say those words.

⠀⠀⠀I didn't want to say those things... I didn't make my mouth make those words... did I?

⠀⠀⠀Horrified, I heard someone answer the question in my thoughts.

" Y o u     d i d n ' t . . . "

⠀⠀⠀The whisper burned against my ear and I couldn't f
ind out who it belonged to. The hairs on my neck stood on end and static tickled my spine. My heart beated in my chest like a drum and I froze in fear as I recognize the voice.
