But soon he is forcing him self to forget the fact that Anna is dead, and as time goes on, it gets harder and harder to hold on to Anna.
Pitch blackness, all around me. It was like the world was spinning, and I was spinning along with it. All I could hear was screaming. I tried so hard to yell back. Because the screaming was Anna's and I knew something was wrong. I couldn't understand what she was screaming. I could hardly hear anything around me. All I could do was deal with the darkness, and the spinning. I was about to give up and let the wind that had been trying to pull me away from the wall I was apparently clinging to...
" Steven! Steven!" I shot straight up in the bed. Anna was shaking my shoulders a worried look in her pale blue eyes.
" You were screaming Steven. Are you alright?" She asked after a moment. I was blinded by the lights that she flipped on, but only for a brief moment. I cleared my throat running a hand through my hair before nodding slowly. No need to worry her with one of my nightmeres. She sighed and placed a cool hand on my neck before checking my eyes twice, knowing that I was lying but not pushing me into telling her anything.
" What time is it?" I asked after a moment of awkward silence. She turned her head, her light brown hair brushing over my face.
" 8:19. Why?"
" No reason, just wondered." But I new that by 9:00 I had to be at Rays. I didn't want to have to make Anna worried about why I was working on a saterday...
" You don't have to work today do you?" She asked her eye brows pulling together. I sighed, but made my lips turn upward into a smile.
" No, but I was planning on hanging out with the guys today, but if you want me to stay here with you...."
" No! Go have fun! I have been waiting for you to take a break for months..." She blinked and smiled, wrapping her arms around my neck. I wrapped my own around her waist and pressed my lips to hers for about five seconds. She giggled, and then jumped up at the sound of my phone going off on the night stand next to the bed. I reached over and grabbed my phone...
" Hey steven! Wanted to remind you to be here at 9! If your late again I swear..." Johns voice rang in my ear. I cleared my throat and tried to act cool, because even though Anna could not here what he was saying she was looking at me with a worried look in her again.
" Yeah! I know dude, I'll be there! " I smiled, and hung up. She inreturn smiled and leaned over to kiss me once more before getting off the bed and shutting the light off.
" What do you want for breakfast?" She asked. I sighed and stood up, walking to where she was, before I could get to her completely she smiled and hurried off into the hallway. I shook my head, and followed her.
When I got to the kitchen she was looking into the open refridgerator, I walked up behind her, putting my arms around her waist.
" I told you. You don't need to cook for me..."
" Oh please..."
" Shouldn't you be studying for something anyway?" I asked, and she turned around putting her arms around my neck. I remembered she was wearing purple shorts and a green tank top. She was always mismatched when no one but me was around. Which was perfectly fine with me...
" Are you sure?"
" Are you lying to me Miss Anna Moore? Do you need a detention?"
Anna giggled and smacked my shoulder, I smiled before using my foot to close the fridge door, and backing her up into the door, pressing my lips to her...
You see, I was 20 years old. I had gone to collage for my freshman year, but than dropped out when I got a job offer from a buddy of mine. Fixing cars may not be the best way to make money but it pays the bills..
I had met Anna about nine months before. She was only 16 when I met her. She turned 17 a few months later. Her family was not into me being with her. In other words, her father hated me, and her mother just was not sure about us. She ended up moviing in with me, when her family told her to get out, or leave me. I felt bad for splitting her and her family up. From what she told me, they were rather close. She lies sometimes to make me feel better. Telling me that she did not need them anyway, and she could not be closer to anyone but me. But that only makes me feel worse...
On the bright side, I got to see her beautiful face every day of my life. She most of the time thought she had to do more for me, since I was letting her live with me. But honestly, I already had enough in life... Too bad it was not going to last much longer....
