Chapter 20~ Annie’s POV:
I slowly open my eyes to find myself lying in a dark room. I knew the look of the room, the feel of the bed, and the uneasy ness of the almost paper feeling gown. I was in the hospital. I slowly lift up into a sitting position. I look around. Nobody was anywhere to been found, so I looked at the clock in the side table. It read •3:17am•. I grab a medical sheet that is beside my bed that read Julianna G. LeBlanc and read the diagnosis. Stage 4 Leukemia and schizophrenia disorder, treatment: NONE. I feel something drop inside of me. Not from fear or sadness, but something almost like relief to know what was wrong with me. I decide to get out of my bed. I try to move my legs but the pain is to much. I can’t walk. I reach as far as I can and grasp the wheel chair in the corner of the room. I drag it over to my bed and open it up. I plop into it and let out a sigh. I slowly push my way to the door and open it. I walk, or I should say roll, down the hallway to a window. I am on one of the higher levels of the hospital, somewhere around the 3rd. Then a voice comes from behind me.
C- how are you doing?
A- you liar.
A- I’m sick, and you didn’t tell me.
C- Annie I can explain-
A- no. You sat there, and you watched me suffered. I was in pain, and confused, for God’s sakes Caleb, I cried and begged for answers! I may have been wrong about a lot of things, but there is one thing that I know for sure, I’m dying. And you need to leave. Now.
C- Annie please, I was just trying to protect you-
A- HOW!? By watching me slowly and painfully cripple down? CALEB YOU WERE NOT PROTECTING ME! You know, you always would lie to save someone’s feelings, but this time, you were protecting your own.
C- Annie you need to know something.
A- what is it now?
C- if I leave, I may never be able to come back.
C- Annie please I-
A- Caleb please, go.
I felt tears dripping down my face and I look away. When I look back he is gone.
