My stomach rumbles angrily and the world around me spins. I put my head in my hands and take a deep breath. The world seems to stop spinning so I lift my head and blink a few times. I lock eyes with Vic who's on the other side of the gym, training with the rest of the team because it's raining again. His eyes are filled with concern so I just give him a reassuring smile. My visions hazes for a second again. I feel like I'm going to pass out and if I do, I don't want it to be here. I need to go home.
I stand up and another wave of dizziness hits me like a bus. I start walking towards the exit, not even bothering to consult with Coach first. Suddenly I'm yanked back by my shirt.
"Hey Kell." Matty grins and I groan.
"Matty, please, just not right now." I plead and he shakes his head.
"I think that you should go swimming like everyone else." He says seeming like he's up to something.
"I can't, I don't feel well." I squeak out.
"Bullshit. What are you hiding under this shirt?" He asks pulling my hoodie off and tugging my shirt up.
I push his hands away but one of his friends grab my wrists and holds them behind my back. My head gets heavy and my knees begin to feel weak as they drag me towards the pool. I don't even have the energy to fight back. They stop at the edge of the pool and in a distance I can hear Vic yelling. Matty grabs the bottom of my shirt then tears it over my head and I can't do anything to stop it. I hear a few people gasp but trying not to pass out is the only thing on my agenda. My visions hazes once more as my shaky legs finally give out on me and the last thing I feel is the cold splash of the pool water.
I push the asshole's who were holding me back off of me as I watch Kellin fall into the pool. Fuck, this can't be happening. I rush over to the pool and don't hesitate to dive in. I swim to the bottom of the pool where Kellin is lying unconscious. I scoop the skinny boy up in my arms and swim up to the top of the pool then I throw him over my shoulder. Someone reaches their hand out so I grab it and they pull me out of the pool. Everyone forms a circle around me as I lay Kellin down on the cement. He's still unconscious and his breathing is very labored and light. My eyes rack his malnourished body. His stomach is practically hollowed out. How could he hide this from me? I slap his cheeks lightly but he doesn't stir. I hold his nose and perform mouth to mouth resuscitation. He chokes up water and gasps as I sit him up quickly. I rub down his back as he coughs violently. I hear ambulance sirens in a distance relieving me. I hold Kellin close to me as my eyes glance over everyone in the room. Most people are whispering to each other. My eyes land on Tay and Oli. Oli's hugging Tay tightly as she cries into his shoulder.
"Don't look at me." Kellin mumbles seeming completely out of it.
I gently shush him and kiss the side of his head. He's shaking softly and I can't feel the coldness on his icy skin. There's some commotion and people move out of the way as two paramedics wheel in a gurney. I stand up lifting Kellin up with me and I gently place him down on the gurney.
I explain what happened to the paramedics as they rush him out of the building with me following. They push him into the back of the ambulance and I follow them in. I sit down and take Kellin's hand in mine as they strap him to the gurney. The ambulance then drives off.
"Vic, I'm cold." Kellin mumbles.
"Hey, he's cold." I tell a paramedic and he grabs a thermal blanket before placing it over Kellin.
