we made it to thirty so i thought i should add some stuff
The hall was dark. Which was reasonable given the time. It was not, however, reasonable for getting around. I used my memory and footing to get around, stick my leg in different places to see if there was safe passage or if I was going to trip.
I fell six times.
Needless to say, with the already unidentifiable sensation that was making it's way up my body and taking hold of my brain, the feeling of my skin ripping from each fall drove me over the edge.
I had had enough.
I fumbled in my back pocket to find my phone that I had haphazardly stuffed in before I left the room. I greedily pressed my finger down at the base of the phone, the screen coming to life. With a few flicks of my thumb, I found my way to my contacts, which didn't hold many numbers. Finding Adeline's contact name she made for her self, da main ho, I click on the message icon and start furiously typing away.
I sighed in relief, and leaned up against the hallway, trying my best to ignore the excruciating desire taunting my whole entire brain, begging it to move towards him. I sat down with a thud, leaning my sweaty back against the wall paper, probably ruining it.
I sat like that for a while, rocking back and forth trying to think of happy thoughts. And it seemed the only happy thoughts I had were of Blaze. For some odd reason, memories of him kept piling up and playing over and over in my brain like a broken record. I was sure my hippocampus was broken.
I remembered seeing him for the first time that night, only being able to barely make out his figure, but wanting him instantly. I remembered when I had complimented his car, and a look of acceptance had finally washed over his face, replacing the normal hostility, and making me feel accepted.
And I sat there, trying my best to ignore my current state, which wasn't working.
Luckily, I soon felt a presence fall over me, and looked up to see Adeline peering over, her eyebrows scrunched up in confusion. Sighing in relief, Adeline took this as an invitation to sit down beside me.
