I waited for Lucy for 15 minutes and she still wasn’t out of the bathroom. What could she possibly be doing in there that takes her 15 minutes? I paced back and forth waiting for her. I started to worry. What if something is wrong? I have to go in there, who cares if it’s the girl’s bathroom, I have to see if Lucy is ok. So of course, I went with my conscience and went inside. As soon as I went in I saw her on the floor all bruised and a bit bloody. She was unconscious. I started to panic and I quickly called the ambulance. My eyes started getting teary and I picked her up and brought her outside. Who could have done this to her?! The ambulance finally arrived and I placed her on the gurney, I went inside the truck and sat beside her. I really hope she is not too injured. I just hope she will be ok.
*At the hospital. Still Ross’ P.O.V.*
I wait outside impatiently, again pacing back and forth. I then see the doctor come out of Lucy’s room.
“Doctor, is Lucy going to be ok?”, I ask impatiently.
“Uh…we are not so sure yet. She is actually really injured, she has 2 fractured ribs, a big concussion and she has a very slight memory loss, but she’ll regain her memory quickly and we are taking quite a lot of X-rays and fixing her up a bit. Don’t worry though, I’m are sure she’ll be alright.”
“Oh…ok. Thanks Doc.”
I went inside Lucy’s room and slowly and quietly shut the door. I looked at her and saw her bruises and bandages. I really want to know who did this to her. Obviously, it has to be a girl. Hmm….think. I saw Lucy get along with most girls……Except for one! It was Nicole! Ugh, of course. I was about to dial her number and yell at her but I heard Lucy groan a little.
“Lucy?”, I asked softly.
“uh…Ross? Is that you?”, she said faintly. I walked towards her bed and sat on her bed.
“Yeah..yeah it’s me.”, I responded. Then she smiled.
“Where am I?”
“Uh…at the hospital.”
“I am? Why?”, she said as she looked around the hospital room.
“Uh…you got hurt back at your dance class…”
“What?! How come I don’t remember this?!”
“The doctor said you wouldn’t remember some things for now…”
“Ugh!”, she said as she laid her head back on her pillow in frustration.
“I’m going to go tell the doctor that you are awake. I’ll be right back babe.”, I said kissing her forehead.
I went outside and asked the nurse for the doctor. She told me that he would be here in a minute, so I waited. I finally saw him and ran towards him. I told him that Lucy woke up and she seems to be alright. He went to the room and checked her, himself. He said that she can check out tomorrow after they do more X-rays and fix her ribs and some other stuff, but it looks like she will be alright. Thank God.
I woke up and didn’t know where I was. The first thing I saw was Ross and I sighed of relief. The doctor just came and said I can leave from here tomorrow. Thank God. I just wanna go home and rest. I’m in pain and I’m exhausted. The doctor just left and now it’s just me and Ross.
“My parents are going on a business trip….again…for a couple days and my brothers aren’t going to be home and I don’t know what Demi is going to do…so can you stay with me for the night when I checkout tomorrow? Please..?”
“Of course, babe. Why? What’s wrong?”
“Nothing…I’m just a bit scared now and I just want to be with you…”
So I had to spend one night at the hospital. I’m still awake. I’m just staring blankly at the ceiling. I look at Ross who is completely knocked out. I’m tired but I can’t seem to fall asleep. I keep looking around the room until I finally start falling asleep.
I’m still in my hospital bed, feeling better and getting excited that in a couple of hours I can go home. I see the door open a bit. I look at the sofa next to my hospital bed, expecting Ross to be there. He wasn’t.
“Ross? Is that you?”, I ask. I hear no one. All I see is a shadow getting closer and closer. I can’t really tell who it is…especially because it is pitch black in here. Not even the light from outside helped me figure out who the mysterious person was. The person is coming closer. I can tell by the sound of their footsteps.
“Hey Lucy”, the mysterious person says deviously. By their voice I can already tell it’s a female.
“Who are y-you?”, I stutter while asking. I start to worry.
“Someone…You can’t tell?”, she responds. Her voice actually does sound familiar.
“Wait a second….NICOLE?!”
“Oh look who figured it out!”, she said sarcastically.
“What do you want?”
“Oh you know…you know very well what I want.”
“You got that right. So stay away from him!”
“Yeah…no.”, I said getting a bit scared.
“Listen! You better stay away from MY Ross, or I will come back for you! Got it?!”, she said as she grabbed me from my neck and started tightening her grip. I could barely breath.
*Back to real life*
I woke up screaming. I moved around and then finally stopped and sat up. Ross ran to me.
“Lucy! Are you ok?!”, he asked worried.
“Oh my god. Yeah I’m fine just had a nightmare…”
“Oh..don’t worry, you’ll be fine. I’m here.”, he said as he held me and kissed my forehead. Then I felt safe. I just don’t understand why Nicole scares me so much. She is just a spoiled brat. Whatever…I just have to get her out of my head and I’ll be fine…I hope.
I can finally leave the hospital. Again, thank god. Riker picked us up and took Ross and I to my house. I don’t know why but I’m still really tired…probably because I barely slept last time. Ross told me he was going to head home to get some stuff if he was going to sleep over tonight. So, to wait I took a nap.
I told Riker to take me home to get some stuff to stay over Lucy’s house. I didn’t tell Lucy this but I am going to Nicole’s house to set her straight. So, I packed my stuff and since Riker went somewhere else I walked to Nicole’s house.
When I got there I was about to turn back, but I needed to do this for Lucy. So I knocked and waited for a response.
“Well, look who we have here!”, Nicole said as she opened the door.
“How are you, babe?”
“I’d appreciate it, if you didn’t call me ‘babe’”, I hissed back.
“Oh, well why are you in a bad mood? What’s your problem?”
“Because of you. You are my problem.”, I yelled back.
“Yeah! Why did you do what you did to Lucy?!”
“Cuz she’s weak.”, she said straight up.
“No. That’s your excuse. What’s the real reason? What, are you jealous of her? Because she has me and I rejected you?!”, I said straight up at her.
“HAHAHA! Jealous?! Of…her?! You got to be kidding!”
“No. I’m not.”
“Ok. Yes, I am a bit jealous of her because she has you….but we can change that.”, she said pulling me closer. I tried to pull back but she kept her grip on my shirt.
“No. We can’t.”
“Of course we can. Just dump that ugly little –“, she said but I cut her off.
“Don’t say anything about her or I swear –“, I stopped myself before I lost control.
“Listen, just don’t say or do anything to her and stay away from her and us and we’ll be fine.”, I jerked back so she can let go of my shirt, but before I could turn around she grabbed my shirt again and pulled me even closer until our lips crashed together.
