I had no idea where I was, I felt tired and sort of dead. Damn what the hell happened yesterday afternoon how long have I been asleep? What happened, it frustrated me that I didn't know, where was I? I was asking myself these questions when I heard the voices in my head again. I think they were the same voices maybe they were different.
"Will she live?"
"Yes sir, nothing serious happened just a lot of stitches but she will be okay even though she will have a permanent scar."
"Is it normal for her to have been asleep for over a month?"
"Did she enter a coma?"
"Actually no she didn't show any symptoms concerning a coma but she did enter in shock that lead to her escaping deep into her thoughts."
"But isn't that a coma?"
"It could be considered but she actually isn't in one."
"So how much longer will she be asleep?"
"Not for much longer."
"No problem, if you need anything please call."
"I hope you come back sooner Maxine, I hope you really do." I heard Robert say before again the darkness consumed me. A nightmare, that's what I dreamed off my sister turning evil trying to kill me, me drowning, me killing myself. I knew some of this was true but why dream it?
It wasn't until two days later that I fully woke up, I knew I was in the hospital and from experience I slowly opened my eyes and saw the water immediately so what did I do, I tried to reach for it. Well there's not much I can say besides big mistake, I felt like my arm was being ripped off from my body.
"Shit" I slowly whispered from my dry lips and soar throat.
"Max…" I heard Natalie's voice.
"Hmm." I murmured as I looked into Natalie's eyes.
"Here drink." Natalie ordered as she held the cup against my lips. I drank for a good while before finally laying my head back down. Natalie sat on the edge of the bed as I closed my eyes when I opened my eyes again Natalie was looking straight into my eyes and again I became lost.
"Am I in heaven?" I asked as I smiled at Natalie and I saw as she began to cry.
"Oh my God I thought I had lost you, no one would tell me what happened and finally Robert told me like a week after, I came as soon as I could. I'm so glad you're okay baby." Natalie said through her tears as she caressed my cheek.
"Aw man I missed our date." I said as I tried to sit up and this time I think I passed out because next time I woke up again Robert and Natalie were both standing in front of me and last time I checked I didn't remember Robert coming in.
"Mmmm." I responded again in impulse I began to sit up but this time I succeeded I guess my bones finally decided to agree with me.
"When can I get out of here?"
"Maybe in a week." Robert answered.
"Where's Jennifer?" I finally asked and saw that Robert looked upset. I really sat up this time and didn't care about the pain.
"Robert where is Jennifer?"
"Um well here's the thing, after she hit you with the vase she ran away and we haven't found her, we've checked the woods and the town even neighboring towns but no one has seen her."
"Have you checked…"
"Yes we checked with your uncle she wasn't there."
"I need to go look for her."
"Max you have t o stay in bed until the doctor says otherwise."
"I don't care what the doctor says I need to find my sister and you can either help me or leave me I don't care but I'm going."
"Let me go ask the doctor" Robert finally said as he headed out the door to go look for the doctor.
I walked to the restroom and with the help of Natalie I got changed and took care of business.
"I have to go find her." I said as I held Natalie's hand.
"I know and I'm going with you.' Natalie said as she stuck her head out the door, she turned to me and motioned me to walk to her. Yes, I was in pain but I didn't care. We were able to get out the hospital without much trouble. I didn't think Natalie had a car and I was correct she was driving my truck.
"So where are we going?"
"I have no idea." I said as I laid my head back against the seat and again I fell asleep. I woke up later and it was dark, I looked over at Natalie and saw that she was trying really hard to stay awake.
"Where are we Natalie?"
"On our way out of South Dakota."
"How long have we been driving?"
"Almost two days."
"Natalie you need to rest let me drive." I said as I sat up.
"No, you can't drive."
"Yes I can." I said as I touched her shoulder."
"Let me drive Natalie."
"No, but we can stop by a hotel."
"Fine just as long as you get to sleep." I said as I huffed like a child. I mean come on I could drive yes I had a few stitches that didn't mean anything, at least to me it didn't. we finally got to a hotel nothing fancy but it would do, Natalie was about to pay with her credit card but I pulled some cash from under the seat.
"Uh why do you have money under the set?"
"In case of an emergency." I said as I also pulled out my passport and my credit cards that are basically untraceable. Once we were finished paying we went to our room, which contained two beds, a TV and a decent restroom. Natalie went straight to the restroom to take a shower and I followed suit after she was out. By the time I came out the shower and had dressed Natalie was asleep. I couldn't help but feel at peace as I saw her sleeping. I put a cover over her before heading outside to make a call.
"Nicolai, I need your help." I said as I leaned against the wall.
"Wait one second angel." I waited knowing that Nicolai was making sure the call was secure.
"Okay angel what is wrong?"
"My sister she's missing."
"When was last time you see sister?" Nicolai asked in his Russian accent, he really wasn't Russian he was Italian but he loved speaking with a Russian accent.
"About a month ago."
"You wait till now to ask for help?"
"I was in a small coma." I said.
"And what happened to you?"
"My sister attacked me and she has ran away." I said. By now most would be asking questions about who Nicolai is. Nicolai is the contact who made the fake identifications for my sister and I.
"What she so that for?"
"I have no idea Nicolai but can you help me find her?"
"Yes I help you but you be careful Maxine."
"Thank you Nicolai call me when you have any news."
"I will." I hanged up the phone and took a deep breath I knew that I would find my sister she was in Nicolai's hands now and he would find her. As I went into the room I noticed that Natalie was missing from he bed. I went to check in the restroom but she was gone and just as I turned around I felt a kick on the back of my leg making me fall on my knees.
"Ouch what the hell." I said as I stood up and turned around to find Natalie with her hands covering her mouth.
"Oh my God I'm so sorry max I didn't know it was you."
"Who else would it be?"
"I don't know." Natalie said as she backed away and sat on her bed.
"You are crazy Natalie." I said as I sat down on my bed and laid back. I was just falling asleep when I felt Natalie climb onto my bed. She put her arm around me and laid her head on my chest right over my heart. On impulse I put my hand around her shoulders. I though that Natalie just wanted company but I felt something wet on my chest and that's when I realized that Natalie was crying.
I pulled up and sat against the wall as I held Natalie in my arms and even though my cut hurt I couldn't deny the fact that holding her in my arms made everything better.
"Hey are you okay hun?"
"I missed you so much max I thought you were never going to wake up and then when I heard that Jennifer was the one that hurt you I knew that was probably what hurt you the most. I cried for that whole month afraid of losing you, I had just found you max I couldn't bare the thought that you were gone from my life. I knew you weren't dead but not hearing your cheesy comments and seeing your beautiful smile felt like I was dead. I knew I told you that I loved you but I didn't realize until then that I really do love you and I cant change that and even if I could I wouldn't." Natalie said as she held my shirt in a tight grip and sobbed.
I couldn't help it I was crying too. I had finally found someone who loved me for how stupid I could be someone who stuck by me and missed me. I held Natalie closer against me until we both calmed down. I looked down at Natalie and found her eyes looking into my soul and seeing my love as I saw hers' as well.
"I love you." I said at last.
"I know and I love you too." Natalie said as she kissed my chin. I couldn't help but kiss her too. We were laughing at how ridiculous we must have looked kissing each other's chins.
Natalie looked at me before sitting up and putting her knees on each side of my legs. She put her hands on my face and gently caressed it before leaning towards me and kissing me softly on my lips. I kissed her back as I felt my heart pounding in my head; my hands went to her back and massaged her as she kissed me deeper. By now I could see that her eyes had become dilated and I could imagine mine were dilated as well. Natalie put her hands trough my hair and she moved higher against me as she kissed me, her sweet tongue touching mine in a dance of fire and passion. As Natalie pulled back she gave me a smile before she pulled her shirt off and that's when the sexual demon in me was let lose to love the one girl I wanted to love forever.
