At first I thought he was gonna crack a smile and tell me it was a joke.
"Rob? Please," I begged. "Tell me that you know who I am."
"But I don't," he said, still staring perplexedly at me.
He. Has. No. Idea. My heart broke in that millisecond, and I kinda felt bad for putting Zack through that hell. No. No I don't. He started it.
"Alex, is Rob-oh my," Dr. Grieg said, walking quickly to the hospital bed. Hot, fresh tears rolled down my face rapidly. He didn't know who I was.
"Rob, how are you feeling? What's the last thing you remember?" Dr. Grieg asked. Rob looked at me and then at the doctor, then again at me. His eyes narrowed.
"You left me. You broke my heart. You said everything would be fine. You lied! You lied to me!" Rob yelled. My heart dropped and my eyes widened.
"YOU BROKE MY HEART!" he yelled. I couldn't help but let the tears roll down my face. So he did remember me, just a distorted version of myself. Dr. Grieg glanced worriedly at Rob and turned to me.
"May I speak with you?" he asked. He and I went outside the room and Katie stayed with Rob.
"Dr. Grieg, what's happening?" I sobbed.
"Did that really happen?" he asked.
"What?" I sniffled.
"Did you break his heart?" Dr. Grieg asked. I nodded shamefully.
"Five years ago. We were dating and he was going to college in Arizona and then my entire family died and I left and went to England," I sobbed quietly.
"Ms. Stone, we're going to run some tests and we'll tell you what we know as soon as we do. Until then, one of you should just stay in the room. I'll go get the nurses." Dr. Grieg got the nurses and they wheeled Rob away while he was yelling various obscenities at me. And all I did was cry.
Katie left and claimed she was going to get food, but I think that she was just giving me my space. I scrolled through all of my pictures. Pictures of Rob and I, pictures of Henry and I, pictures of Nate and I goofing off, pictures of Lou and I taking selfies. Pictures of Luke and I, and pictures of Zack and I being ridiculous. And all I did was cry. What if I hadn't gone to England? What if I had forgiven Zack? What if, what if, what if. What if I hadn't broken Rob's heart the first time? If I hadn't met Katie? Hadn't randomly bumped into a hot guy in the airport whom I'd come to love? If I hadn't given him my everything? My love, my life? If I hadn't...if I hadn't left America. If Zack and Nate left me to die? If they just let me die like I wanted, I wouldn't be in this fucking mess. I felt like this was something from the Hunger Games.
Rob was Peeta and Zack was Gale.
Peeta (Rob), was mentally insane right now and thought of me as a mutt and the reason for his misery. And I wanted him to know who I was again, instead of having to let him go because I love him so damn much.
Gale (Zack), was and is, I guess, my best friend. We kissed, he loved me and I might've loved him too, but Peeta was my life now and I was unconditionally devoted to him. Even though he thought I was an evil shrew that caused his misery.
And I'm Katniss, right in the middle.
Then I decided to go on Twitter, which I hadn't in ages. I looked in my mentions and I had hundreds, if not thousands, of mentions.
'YOU WHORE IT'S ALL YOUR FAULT!'
'BITCH WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE? YOURE AN ATTENTION WHORE!'
'IT'S YOUR FAULT!'
'GO DIE SLUT.'
'ZESS WAS PERFECT Y DID A BITCH LIKE U COME AND MESS IT UP? GO DIE SLUT.'
'WE ALL HATE YOU.
SINCERELY, LIVERPOOL FANS.'
I didn't know what was happening until I scrolled down to the very bottom.
"@ZackMatthewsLVP: Haha best time ever with my girl @theAmazingAlex favorite person in the world xx"
And attached was a picture of us with me kissing his cheek. And then I realized: Zack and Tess had broken up. Because of this picture?
And everyone was pissed. Especially fans and Tess. Haha. I was screwed.
