I ran through the doors of the press room and ran up to Dakota. I
kissed him deeply as if I were to die today. I held his perfect
face as if I would never see him again. "Dakota, I'm not going
anywhere, I'm not gonna do anything, not without you. You can't
leave me, please, I don't want you to go-" He brushed his finger
over my lips and held me tightly. "I'm not going anywhere without
you, Addison." "Is this the girl?" The officer asked "Yes, she is."
"And Dakota's mine. Forever." The officer took us to take some
tests on a lie detector. Luckily, we both passed. We both watched
as the now deranged David had walked through the doors and into the
soundproof room. After a few minutes, there were loud shouts and a
gunshot. David was escorted out in handcuffs, and left in a police
car. Dakota and I shouted and cheered as this nightmare was now
over. Or was it? Weeks had come and gone, come and gone. I woke up
one morning, gentle snowflakes falling to the ground. I quickly got
ready, dressed in warm clothes. I ran out the door hoping Dakota
would be waiting. My smile disappeared, as he was nowhere in sight.
I felt something hit my head, and snow blinded my eyes. "Boo! Did I
scare you? I hope not." Dakota came up from behind me and twirled
me in the air. He tripped over himself and we both fell laughing.
Dakota was awfully silent as I picked snow from his hair. "Is
something bothering you?'' "I-It's nothing." I felt a guilt growing
in my stomach as if it were my fault. Don't Leave Me This Way...I
thought. "Are your sure? Because, I mean, if I did anything wrong
th-" "I said I'm FINE!" I winced with shock as he raised his voice.
Something was wrong and the guilt kept piling up. He turned around
and looked straight into my eyes. He scooted himself over to me and
wrapped me in his arms. "I'm sorry."
