Part 19 ~ Broken Roads

913 58 19

Did I lock the door? 

Janice is prengnant . . I can't leave the door unlocked . . I lock the door and walk back to my car. I definitely need another bottle of Jack . . or Dack . . whatever . . I start the car and roll down the driveway . . . I hope there are no cops around . . . 

I drive to the nearest gas station. 

I walk into the shop and head straight to the alcohol section. Where is my bottle of Jack? I look around but I can't find it. I accidentally trip over a woman's purse and knock over a bunch of candles. People are looking in my direction. The cashier comes up to me. "Are you ok?"

"Yea . . just a little tired. . had a long day . .hehe"

"You don't look very good . . do you want me to give you a glass of water?"

"I prefer a jack of glass . . I mean, a glass of Jack . ."

"Jack Daniels? umm . . they're over here . . ."

"Give me one . . oh what the heck! . . give me two!"

The cashier takes two Jack Daniels bottles and wraps them up.

"That'll be $31.98"

I hand her a $50 dollar bill. "Keept he change"

I take the plastic bag with my two bottles in it and walk back to my car. 

I get in and put the bag on the passenger seat. I turn on the radio and start the car. My eyes are so heavy and so are my legs. . . I'm tired. I get on the road and head back home. 'Love Never Felt So Good' by James Brown is on . . I love that song. . . OH CRAP . . . a police car is right behind me.

They're holding a stop sign out of the window . . one with lights around it . . DAMN . . I can't just pretend I don't see it. One of them yells through the megaphone "STOP YOUR CAR" . . I'm DEAD. . 

I stop the car on the side of the road. "Good evening, Officer"

"Good evening, I need your license and registration please!"

"Coming right up!"

"Alcohol, huh?" He asks, looking at the bottles next to me.

"Yea . . I was gonna drink them at home, I don't drink and drive, hehe"

"I stopped you because you were driving funny . . ." 

I hand him my licence and registration.

"Officer, my pregnant wife is at home . . I really need to get going!"

"That's no excuse for driving on the wrong side of the road, young man!"

"I'm sorry! my mind is all over the place right now . . I pormise I drive more carefully!"

"Alright, I'm gonna make an exception . . . don't let me catch you again, boy!"

"You won't, I promise!"

I roll the window up and drive away . . GOD!!! that close!!! . . that was f*cking close!! I drive back home as carefully as I possibly can. I can't see straight . . I'm seeing everything double . . gosh . . I'm f*cking drunk . . why did I even get another bottle? . . . I really don't know . . but to be honest. . . I need it . . I really need it right now . . :(

~ Janice's point of view ~

I wake up to horrible stomach pains . . . oh my . . . I can't wait for my doctor's appointment tomorrow. I hope everything's ok wit the baby . . . as soon as I get up I feel this terrible urge to puke . . I run to the bathroom and let it all out . . . UGH . . . ewww . . I hate throwing up . . I brush my teeth and walk into the kitchen. Now I'm hungry . . I wanna eat the sushi Michael got for me today . . . :) 

speaking of Michael . . where is he? 

I walk into his bedroom . . no one in there . . I check the livingroom . . no one in there . . I check the bathroom . . no one in there . . oh my god . . he freakin' left!!! how can he leave in his condition?!! he's f*cking drunk!!! is he insane??! . . I grab my phone and call him . . 

"The number you have dialed is not in service at this time" 

peep. . peep. . peep.

What the hell?!!! . . not in service?? . . I put on my bathrobe and walk outside . . . He took the car . . UGHHHHHH!!!! I can't believe his stupid ass . . why did he leave?!! he's so dumb . . he's the dumbest creature on earth right now!!!! UGHHH . . .

I walk down the driveway hoping to see his car somewhere. . . I try calling him again but I get the same answer. "The number you have dialed is not in service at this time" . . Maybe he went to Joanna's house . . yes!! of course . . he must be at her place now or is on his way there. . . 

I call Joanna . . she picks up right away.

"Hello?" 

"Hey girl . . it's me . . Janice . . is Michael there?"

"Umm . . no . . he's not"

"He's probably on his way though . . he doesn't pick up his phone"

"I don't know where he is Janice . . and I don't think he's on his way here because I told him to get lost . . I really don't wanna talk to him right now. . ."

"Girl why not? what happened??"

"Janice . . I really don't wanna talk about it right now, please understand. . "

"Ok . . I understand . . alright then . . good night :("

"Night hun"

I hang up the phone and walk back inside. So they broke up? . . for real? . . I can't believe this. They love each other, don't they? why would they break up? . . ugh . . this is f*cked up. . and now I know why Michael was acting so weird earlier . . he NEVER drinks . . . poor guy . . I'm not going to bed. . I'm gonna wait up for him. . . 

~ Michael's point of view ~

UHH f*ck . . 

I open my eyes and look around . . where the hell am I and what the hell happened?

I can't move my legs . . 

I try getting up but it's impossible . . my legs are pretty much stuck between the seat and the steering wheel. . I move my arms . . OH F*CK . . my shoulder hurts as if it were on fire . . I look down at my shirt . . . blood . . blood everywhere . . my body hurts . . every part of my body hurts . . . 

And the windshield is compleltey shattered . . 

I'm starting to lose consciousness . .

"HELP! . . . I NEED HELP! . . . PLEASE . . . . "
