He was shocked as well. Kale couldn't ever grasp the car door handle. He was shaking the whole way, fist against his lips. He stared out as if there was abosutely nothing to see, but At. As we finally arrived at the hospital we searched for At's mom.
" Oh, how is he?" My mother asks.
" It's not good. The doctors won't even letus inside the room, they are performing a major operation right now." At's mom says with so much sadness that she could barely finish. I see Anis sitting at the end of the waiting room chairs. Her hands grasping her forehead in disbelief. I sit next to her.
" Hey," I say putting my hand on her leg.
" Hey," I say as looks at me. She looks at Kale and rolls her eyes. There wassmall row of chair across from us and Kale decided it was best not to sit next to Anis.
" So, what happened?" I ask.
" I don't know. I just got this call from At's mom saying he's been in an accident." She tries not to cry. Time is ticking, slowly at most. Some suppose that he will be ok, but I, now I'm not sure. As time goes by, days, days, it seems impossible to think straight. Finally, when we have gotten a call from At's mom, we didn't take any longer than a second to visit. As we stand at the closed door to his room, the doctor finally walks out.
" Are you here to see him?" The doctor asks. Kale looks at me and my mom.
" Of coarse," Kale says with so much anger and impatience.
" He is such a lucky boy to be alive,I hope you know that. Broke so many bones in his body, it's a miracle he's able to function, see, hear, or ever talk. He can ever move his body parts, he's such a lucky boy that I don't know how we did it." We stare at him with amazement and finally walk in. Wrapped around his head was bandagges and around his legs. He was still and seemed so gentle and sad. I stare at him. He opens his eyes and smile, not able to move his neck.
" Guys! You came!" He says happily. I hurry to him and gently wrap my arm around his broken body. He lets out a small groan and closes his eyes.
" I'm sorry, did I hurt you?" I ask.
" Well, it's kind of hard not to hurt me, look at me," He says staring at me. He finally turns his head to Kale. He swallows and Kale doesn't even look away for a second. Stares at him hard and long.
" Mom, maybe we should let these 2 talk for a litte bit, alone," I say as we walk to the door.
" No! You stay," Kale says. I look at my mom and guide her out. I reach the room and close it. The 3 of us, the most akward and inappropriate time ever to be sitting together.
" So, you want to say something?" At asks.
" Nope, not really, actually I think you got what you deserve," Kale says so easily. I stare at him with a little bit of anger and amazement.
" Oh you're such an ass. You act like a kid, you can't evenget your shit together and you want to blame it on me. Why? Because I actually love her," At says.
" Wait a second now," I say, but was interrupted.
" Oh you love her! Man, that must suck since she's in love with me," Kale says mockingly.
" Oh really, then why does she think you are nothing, but shit?" At yells.
" Why does she always stick with me?"
" Why does she always resort back to me?"
" Why did she sleep with me?" Everything stopped. At hurries to look at me as I make a sharp turn to Kale.
" You slept with him?" At asks sadly.
" Kale! You ass! Why would you say that? That was private," I run out the room, crying my eyes out. Kale hurries after me. He stops me halfway and grabs me by my arm.
" I'm so sorry, it just came out," I couldn't control myself. I raise my hand and slap him across his face, hard. I give him a long, hard stare and walk away.
