Chapter 111

1K 49 7


In the two years Bri & I have been together, she's managed to say a lot of things to freak me out. However, nothing freaked me out more than, "someone's gonna die."

"What are you talking about?" I asked.

"I had a dream...that my aunt took me with her to her grave. That usually means someone's gonna die. I'm assuming it's gonna be me since I was the one that went in the grave. And then, I saw you, Ford and my family crying in a church. I tried to see who was in the coffin at the front of the church, but I woke up before I could."

I honestly did not know what to say to her after that. I looked at her with my mouth slightly open, then she looked at me and furrowed her eyebrows.

"Don't look at me like that. I'm not crazy," she said, getting defensive.

"I didn't say you were. It's just, you did say you might die. How am I supposed to react to that."

She held her head down and I just held her hand until she was discharged.

We went home and neither of us really talked. She called all her family & friends to make sure they were alright, and I did the same.

It was getting late, but we didn't wanna go to sleep even though I was really tired.

I started drifting off to sleep and all I felt was Bri kiss my forehead and run her fingers through my hair.



"I love you."

"I love you too, babe."

And that was the last thing I heard before I fell asleep.



I'm not really afraid of death because I mean, I did try to kill myself once. I'm just afraid that I'll die and the baby will die too, and I don't think Blake would be able to handle that.

I managed to stay up until 8 a.m. and since I'm not dead yet, I decided to try and fall asleep, but I jolted awake when my phone started ringing. I looked at the screen and a wave of emotions hit me when I saw Mr. Benjamin's name.

me: h-hello?

mr. b: [crying] Briana?

When I heard him crying, my heart dropped.

me: y-yes?

mr. b: I know it's early and I hate to bother you, but...but things aren't looking so good right now.

I was trying really hard to keep my composure, but I couldn't. As soon as I started crying, Blake walked in and rushed over to the bed.

me: I'll be there as soon as I can.

I hung up and even though Blake didn't know what was going on, he just held me and I appreciated it.

"Babe, what's wrong?"

"It's Shaierra. Her dad said things aren't going so well," I croaked, "I have to go see her."

I got up and got my suitcase and just started throwing clothes in.

"I'm coming with you," Blake said, doing the same thing.

"Blake, you can't just leave. You have practices and a game next week. I don't know how long I'll be gone."
