Chapter 31:Flat Line

QUANELL(POV)

.......I tried to catch my breath but I was having trouble. I never thought these niggas will come at me like this, blasting. It was funny like that in the hood sometimes. I mean, you never knew what was gonna happen, or when. I'd done too much to turn back, and I'd done too much to go on. I guess in the end it all catches up to you. I thought about my baby girl Kali. I wanted to see her grow up, I wanted to see her on her first day of school..I wanted to be there when she graduated high school. I thought about Kelsey. I thought about how wrong I did her. I wanted to take back all the pain and hurt I put her through. I'll do anything just to tell her I love her. I thought about my moms. My moms told me selling drugs was either gonna put me six feet under or behind bars. My moms asked me one time if I care whether I live or die. Yeah, I do. Now I guess it's too late.

I remember seeing people standing over me. They picked me up and put me on a stretcher. They put me in the ambulance. I tried to talk but couldn't.
"Shhh just hold on...just hold on...stay with me" I heard a older dark skinned lady say. It was a paramedic. I died in the back of the ambulance.

"1..2..3..4..5..6..7..8..9..CLEAR!......1..2..3..4..5..6..7..8..9..CLEAR!!..."

KELSEY(POV)
I just put Kali to bed. It was 10:00 pm. I went to my room and laid down in bed. I turned to the news to see what was going on in the world.
"This is Stacy from NBC 4 news. We have breaking news. A drug deal gone wrong that left 1 man dead and the other in critical condition fight for his life. He was rushed to Good Samaritan Hospital. Police haven't confirmed the exact detail surrounding this case but they have released the victims names. 20 year of Wayne Jimenez and 23 Quanell Hernandez both from Brooklyn NY....." I sat there looking at the tv. I jumped up and ran to Kali's room. I put her coat and shoes on and ran out the house. I tried to call Quanell but no answer. I was going crazy. I kept calling and calling but it kept going to voicemail. No!! This can't be true no! My phone rung and it was Quanell.
"Oh my god Quanell, I thought you was dead. " I cried.
"Miss, this is detective Morgan from the New York City Homicide devision." The person on the phone said.
I froze, my heart was pounding. My phone hit the floor. He was saying something but my mind with black. The only man I ever loved, my child's father was gone. I pulled over on the side of the road and just sat there. I look into the darkness. My heart hurt. I cried. I looked back at Kali, she was asleep in her car seat. I kept hearing somebody say Miss. I looked down and saw my phone was still on a call. I put it to my ear.
"Miss??? Miss?!" I heard a voice say.
"Hello" I said in groggy voice. Tears steamed down my face.
"Miss, my name is Detective Morgan....I'm from the New York City Homicide devision. Is there somewhere I can meet you?" He asked. I just stayed silent.
"Miss are you still there? Is there somewhere I can meet you?" He asked.
"Yea....Good Samaritan Hospital" I told him. That's where Quanell's was. I wanted to be where ever he was. He agreed and he hung up.
