Later that day when i got home my mom kept bugging me to see if i said thank you and talked to him, and what happend, do i think hes cool. Stuff like that. And of course I didn't tell her what actually happened. I told her I said thank you and talked a little, but still was a little unsure about him. After we where done talking I went upstairs to my room. I expected it to be a mess with blood everywere and the dresser all messed up and was surprised when it looked almost the same as how it had been before anything wierd happend. There was a little blood stain on the carpet next to my bed where my mom said I was, but the drawr was fine and so was eveything else. Maybe I was just imagining things I thought. It could have just been a dream. I just couldn't figure out how it happened. I suddenly felt bad for being such a jerk to Kane. He must really think im crazy, maybe I should find him and straighten things out. No I couldnt then my mom would assume things and it would just prove I was crazy. I sighed. I didnt know what to do. It was five o'clock now and I did want to go see Kane, I had time and I'm sure my mom would agree to it. I just need to say sorry and thats it. I turned around to head back downstairs to ask my mom to go and almost had a heart attack when I saw, you guessed it, Kane in my doorway.
"Holy crap!" i yelled when I saw him. Kane laughed
"Wow I think you almost touched the ceiling the way you jumped." I let out a heavy sigh
"Yeah you only scared me half to death thats all." I said and rolled my eyes. "Not to be rude, but what are you doing here? I was just going to see if I could find you, but I guess its not necessary now." I went to the chair next to my desk and sat down. He made himself comfy also and sat down on my bed. He was wearing a different outfit now it was a brown shirt with a little bit of green on the bottom, also wearing a black jacket and light blue jeans. He paused for a moment then answered my question with a shrug
"I figured we got off on the wrong foot so I came back just to talk I guess." he looked at me curiously "Why where you looking for me? From what I could tell you hated me so why...?" he didn't finish, though I already knew what he was going to say.
"Well I felt bad for snapping at you because even though I hate to admit it I probably was just out of it about that whole story I gave you. It was just a weird dream so I wanted to say sorry." he smiled
"Oh thank you." I said sarcastically "So what did you want to talk about anyway?" I asked as I spun around in my chair. He shrugged
"Dont know just talk." I stopped myself suddenly facing him
"Just talk?" I looked at him as if he had three heads.
"Yeah just talk you know, talk. Hello how are you? Whats up? Talk." he said shifting uneasily.
"Oh...okay." I spun around on my chair again. There was silence for a minute. "Uhmm so what kind of music do you like?" I asked feeling awkward.
"Huh? Oh. I like a lot of music." he said thinking. I could kinda guess that he was feeling awkward to.
"Whats your favorite band?"
"Hmm, not sure I actually have a favorite."he finally decided after a minute.
"Oh, I see." I said and stopped spinning again feeling dizzy. "Yeah, don't hurt yourself again." he said seeing I was dizzy. I glared at him and he smiled.
"I wont." I said trying not to snap at him. " I don't even understand how I got hurt." he shrugged, but didn't say anything.
"You were the one who found me." I accused.
"Doesn't mean i know how you got hurt." he said matter-of-factly. That was true though. There was silence again. Kane coughed.
"Uhm so what was this dream about anyway?" he asked not looking at me. I shook my head.
"Its nothing it was stupid."
"No, what was it I want to know."
I rolled my eyes and shook my head then sighed. " Well there was just a monster that attacked me it clawed my arm and bit my hand. Then while I was on the floor screaming and crying somone killed it and said that i'd be okay. The end." I said flatly.
"Well that wasn't a very detailed story." Kane said whining.
"Sorry, but thats all your getting."
"Hmm well did you see the guy? And about that time thing, what would you say it seemed like?" Kane said sounding overly curious.
"Why do you want to know?" I said just as curious.
"I just want to know thats all." I sighed
"If you must know I didn't see the boy and in my dream time stopped." once I said that he looked kinda confusing. He looked relieved at first then looked worried.
"And you saw everything stop in your dream?" he asked.
"Yes I did, you sound like a police officer questioning someone." he chuckled quickly and replied
"Im just curious." then he got up and came near me then spun my chair
"Hey!" I said trying to stop. When I stopped I saw Kane laughing silently and leaving the room. "Where are you going?" I said getting up dizzy and I stumbled trying to follow him. That was my mistake, trying to follow him dizzy. I really must be turning into a klutz because I am never like this. While I was trying to follow Kane I tripped and when Kane saw me and tried to steady me. That was his mistake. He turned around to steady me, but instead was knocked off balance by the way my wieght was falling and he fell...backwards. He fell backward on the floor with me on top of him. It was the most embarrassing thing in my life.
"Owww." he groaned.
"Ouch my arm." I said. Then had the realization that I had just fallen right on top of Kane.
"Oh my God I'm sorry." I said looking at him blushing. I could see he felt embarrassed as well because he tried to brush it off as nothing when his face was obviously turning red. He chuckled hesitantly
"Uhh can you please get up?" he said turning his head looking everywhere so he wouldnt have to look at me.
"Yeah sorry." I mummbled winceing as I got up.
"Great nice job." he said sitting up and pointing to my arm. I looked to and groaned loudly. Off course the stiches had to come out and of course it was bleeding. Kane sighed
"I guess you cut the stiches when you fell. Wow you really are a klutz." he said getting up.
"Ugh. MOM!" I called walking to the door. "Mom! we need to go back to the hospital unfortunately, my stiches came out!" I yelled waiting for an answer. "You're such a klutz! How did you do that?" I rolled my eyes and Kane laughed "I fell." I said comming downstairs with Kane following. My mom groaned when she saw my arm. "Come on honey we just got home and I was just getting dinner ready. I guess it'll have to wait now because you'll be at the hospital."
"Would you like me to come to Mrs. Bay?" Kane asked.
"No you can go home now she'll be alright." she said getting her jacket on and grabbing her purse.
"Do you need a ride?" she asked handing me my jacket. He nodded
"Yes please, if you dont mind." I put on my jacket with my bad arm out and groand in my head. I didn't even want to look at him now that was so embarrassing, but my mom nodded and opened the door.
"Okay come on now before you bleed all over the carpet." I walked out the door with Kane behind and went to the car. It was very cold and snowing outside and it hurt my arm. I opened the door and hopped in the car and slid down a seat for Kane. He came in and sat next to me.
"Nice car." he said to my mom as she came in and shut her door. "Thank you its a bit old, but I like it all the same." she said and started the car then started to drive to Kanes house. We dropped Kane off first. He lived in a small apartment that he said he shared with his dad, it was kind of awkward saying bye, but we manadged to pull it off without making my mom suspicious. After we drove to the hospital and saw a doctor.
"I guess they weren't strong enough it looks like they came lose and fell out. Did you take the medication I prescribed?" the doctor asked stitching my arm up. I winced as he stiched the last one.
"I guess not. Yes I did when i got home." I said.
"Well hopefully these don't come out. You just have to be more careful." he said. I sighed
"I'm usually not as clumsy I dont know why I am now." I said to the doctor.
The doctor wrapped the stiches in new bandages and let us go. It wasnt a long ride home, but it was late. When we got home it was 9:00 we stopped at Taco Bell for dinner and ate in the car. When we got home I went to my room and tried to sleep, but this time I didnt look out the window. After about an hour of laying in my bed I finally was able to fall asleep.That night I woke up and Kane was in my room, he wasn't facing me so I could only see his back, but there was somthing in front of him. Somthing huge. It looked like a bear standing up and it looked like it was wrestleing Kane. I sat up and got a better look and I saw the creature had similarities to the monster in my dream. I gasped as the creature roared loadly at Kane and tryed to push him back. Kanes feet slid back a couple feet, but he didnt fall back.
"Oh my God." I whispered and Kane turned his head to look at me.
"Get out!" he yelled as the giant creature pushed him back and fell on him. I didn't know where it came from or if that was just how he was keeping the creature off him, but in his hands was a long, thick metal bar that had a weird design on it. I wasn't sure what to do or if I was really awake or not. Either way I decided I had to help him. I got off the bed and threw all my weight on the creature. Luckily I caught it off guard and it fell sideways.
"What are you doing?!" Kane yellled as the creature got up and got ready to attack. The creature jumped for me Kane went in front of me and pushed the creature back with the metal bar. I fell backwards and hurt my back. Then realized that I was awake because I felt my back hit the ground painfully. I quickly got up and looked for somthing to use for a weapon. Kane slid back a few feet again while I ran to the metal garbage bin next to my drawr and picked it up and threw it at the monsters head. It roared and reeled backwards. Thank goodness I was quick enough to move out of the way before it attacked me. Just as the creature was turning towards me Kane pulled a gun out from his belt and shot the creature five times in the stomach. It died a quick death and I jumped every time Kane shot. Blood splatered everywhere, but it wasnt red blood it was black. Immediately after we were sure the creature was definitely dead Kane fell to the floor breathing fast and heavily. I ran to him
"Are you okay? What happened? What was that?" I said sitting down next to him and gasped seeing blood all over his stomach, red blood.
"Wheres the wound?" I asked checking his shirt for a rip to indicate where the wound was. Unfortunately it was huge and deep. It went across his whole stomach and looked about an inch deep. I rolled his shirt up as best I could and ran to get a towel. When I got back he was worse, but was still breathing. Now started coughing up blood. I put the towel on his wound and put pressure on it, luckily I took medical classes and stopping someone from bleeding was something I learned. He yelled out in pain, but was quickly cut off by coughing up more blood. I almost cried. I didnt want to see someone I knew die in front of me by some death that again I didn't understand. There was a little less blood coming out of the wound so I knew this was working, but unfourtunatley he was still coughing up blood. I left to go get a new wet towel and when I came back I was relieved to see he was still breathing and not coughing up as much blood. I washed his wound and continued to put pressure on it. When it stopped bleeding I was I little confuzed on what to do. He stopped coughing up blood and was unconscious now. I didn't know what to do and I didn't want him to die so I tried to wake him. I lightly slapped his face and continued to apply pressure and eventually he woke up. When I looked out the window it still looked pitch black outside so I looked at the clock and my jaw dropped. It was the same time it was when I woke up! Just like the other night I thought. Then I jumped when i heard Kane groan. "Are you okay?" I asked worried. Ugh why'd I ask that of course he's not okay! I thought. His eyes where still closed, but he tried to put his head up to see his stomach. When he opened his eyes he groaned even louder then stopped and gritted his teeth with pain.
"Careful." I said "Your going to make yourself bleed again." He put his head back down and closed his eyes.
"Why am I still alive?" he croaked.
"Well you didn't expect me to sit around and watch you die without and explanation." I said with a little releived chuckle.
"Well I don't think im going to be answering your questions now." he said then let out a heavy breath. "Yeah I didn't expect you to although I don't know if you did this, but the time is kinda stopped and I don't know if you could call someone to fix it or come here and help, but it might be nice if you could." I asked a little embarrassed.
" Huh? oh yeah gimme a second." he said taking shaky breathes. "Go in my pocket and grab the watch in it. " he said through gritted teeth.
"Yeah okay." I said and grabbed the watch. "Now what?" I asked. I didn't get an answer at first and thought he was unconscious again, but after a few minutes he said
"There's a button on the side press that and it should put time back just don't press it now. Hold down the middle button on the top and call for someone to help." he said then I think he went out again. I was a little hesitant at first, but then thought of what would happened if I didn't call for help. I held down the button and oddly spoke to the watch.
"Uhmm hello?" I said and let go of the button. I figured it might work like walkie-talkie. I waited a few minutes and as I went to go press it again I heard someone speak.
"Hello Kane are you there?" the voice came from the watch. I quickly spoke back. "No this isn't Kane, this is Christine Bay. Kane is really hurt he got cut deeply from some monster thing." I said then waited for an answer.
"Okay where are you?" I gave him my address. "We'll be there in a minute just hold on okay." the voice said then went dead. I sat there a maybe half an hour before I saw people walk through my door. At first I forgot who they where then I remembered I called them here. Some of them came to see if I was okay. I quickly told them I was fine and to hurry up and get Kane.
"How did he get himself into this." I heard a man mutter. He wasn't like all the other men here he looked way younger. He wasn't a doctor either. He was medium height with dirty blonde hair. He had dark brown eyes that stared disappointedly at Kane. He also wore what looked like blue pajama bottoms and a muscle shirt. The four doctors lifted Kane up and put him on a stretcher and left without saying a word to me and eventually there was just me and the young man. The fact that he didn't leave with Kane made me a little worried. When he came up to me he sat down beside me and lit a cigarette. I glared at him
"Do you mind? If you want to go kill yourself do it somewhere else I'd rather not second hand smoke." I said covering my mouth and nose with my sleeve. He looked at me from a side glance and blew smoke at me. I coughed and tried not to breath. "What the hell?!" I said and got up and moved away. When iI stood up to move though suddenly I saw double of everything and got really dizzy. I slumped onto the wall so that I didn't fall flat on my face when I felt strong arms catch me before I hit the ground. Whats going on? I thought scared right before I blacked out.
