The Girl I Fell In Love With

It started with her she changed my life forever. I was always the bad kid in school not that popular. Girls wanted me but I never liked that, and when she came along I fell in love and then it ended with her. 

"Toby Hemingway," said the teacher

"Here," Toby answered

 "psst." I turned my head to see my best friend Garrett 

"What! I whispered.

 "Did you see the new girl?" Garrett shot back

 "No."I answered

 Then the door opened and a girl walked into the room.

"October Hi I'm Mrs. Ford, and well where all glad to meet you so if you could take your seat and will begin!" Said Mrs. Ford.

I looked up at her and she smiled she sat behind me I could smell her perfume it smelt of channel no nine which was a sweet smell.

"I'm October" she whispered

 I turned to face her I'm Toby I answered she smiled again," 

"Mr. Hemingway pay attention "Mrs. Ford yelled

"Sorry it's just that your face scared me so I looked away." I smirked

 Mrs. Ford's eyes widened 

"Go to the office now!" she yelled

 Toby stood he looked at October she was giggling Toby smiled and headed out of the room.

After first period Toby came out of the office and headed toward second period when he saw October at her locker he walked up to her 

"That was my old locker go you need help opening it?" asked Toby

 "Um yes actually, Toby right" she answered.

 Toby banged on the locker and it opened. 

"Yeah it's Toby," he responded.

 'What's your lunch period?' October asked

"Oh I have C lunch." Toby replied

 "Oh so do I, so I guess I'll see you at lunch then!" October smiled again

 "Um yeah but you probably don't want to sit with a bunch of guys."Stated Toby 

"oh no, you're probably right I shouldn't well got to go." bye" said October

She closed her locker and headed off. I sat through math class thinking about her I even wrote her name on my binder. October, she was so cute and different from every other girl, her smile and how she walks it's so perfect that's when I thought to myself I think I like this girl. 

After second period Toby headed to lunch he sat down next to Garrett, 

"So Toby what do you think?" Garrett asked

"Oh dude she's so cute and really nice."Toby answered 

"Oh well I'm just letting you know October is my cousin and her best friend is my girlfriend how cool is that!"Stated Garrett

 "She's your cousin no way man that's cool" Toby answered

 October walked over sitting down, 

"Hi Garrett oh Toby; Garrett you didn't tell me Toby was your friend wow."October stated

 "Oh yeah sorry maybe you two should hangout ?"Asked Garrett 

"Oh maybe that's not such a good idea Garrett." October snapped

"Oh come on October let your guard down your fine nothing is going to happen to you so chill." answered Garrett.

 I looked at October her eyes where glossy and it looked like she was about to cry. "Garrett you don't know anything do you "I don't want a boyfriend," October shot back

 She stood up and left "

"What did I say." yelled Garrett.

 Toby stood up and followed October. 

"October stop!"Toby yelled

 October stopped and spun around. 

"Are you okay?" I asked

 October looked at me she was crying

"Look the reason why I don't want a boyfriend is because my last boyfriend." October trailed off.

"Last boyfriend did what?"

 I looked into her eyes. 

"What?" I asked

 "his name was Greg Whitman I thought he loved me but when he started drinking everything changed he hit me he would drug me until I was out of it, now he's in jail, my parents found out cause I told them everything he soon broke out of jail and tried to kill me I have a scar on my chest wear he stabbed me." Said October

October looked down at the marble ground. 

"October I know it's your first day and everything but I would never do anything like that to any girl." Stated Toby

 October smiled after that day October grew stronger we where close then ever she laughed at almost everything we talked on the phone we hung out a lot she trusted me she told me all her secrets.

 "Are you okay" asked October. 

"October I need to talk to you" stated Garrett as he wiped the tears away

 October sat down next to Garrett. Garrett told October everything she cries for two hours and drifted off to sleep I think that was the last time I spoke to October until two months past we started talking again she told me about child services I didn't want the month to end.

October sat next to Garrett; Garrett smiled at October she smiled back. 

"So you got homework" asked Garrett 

"No actually I don't but have you seen Toby?"replied October

"October you know how you told me not to fell in love with you....well I'm in love with you." stated Toby as he grabbed both of October's hands 

She looked at Toby. 

"I love you too Toby Hemingway" October answered and they kissed.

 That was the last time I saw October she stopped coming to school, so I want to her house. "Toby you should leave" said Lucinda

 Garrett then came to the door 

"Mom go" snapped Garrett, Lucinda walked away,

 "Garrett why haven't you and October been to school it has been a week you know child services is coming?" Toby asked 

"Oh well child services isn't coming anymore its Octobers ex boyfriend?"Garrett stated "what? No he's in jail" Toby responded.

"No he got out and he called here we told the police but they told me and October to stay home and when child services found out they freaked they wanted no part of this at all."Garrett answered

 "Can I just see October please?"Said Toby

 "Sorry but you can't" said Garrett

 Garrett then closed the door. October soon was turning eighteen and I wanted to see her buy on April twenty first In the middle of the night I woke up to my phone ringing. I picked up my phone 

"Hello?" I answered 

It was Garrett he sounded scared and he was crying. 

"Garrett what's wrong!" I shouted

 "October she's at the hospital Greg found us he killed my mom October ran outside she was going toward your house and Greg shot her I'm lucky I got away please come to the hospital" Garrett cried 

"Alright I'll be there." I said

"October okay?" I asked 

"The doctor said there doing all they can but the doctor also said she may not make it." Said the Garrett

 Garrett's eyes started to water again. Rachel hugged Garrett 

"Today's her birthday."Rachel announced.

 I looked at the time it said 3:15 and yeah it was the twenty second it was her birthday "excuse me you may go see her" a doctor called 

We all headed into the room October had bandages over her body we walked over to her, October opened her eyes 

"Hey." she smiled

 She still had that perfect smile 

"Hey." I whispered

 "Happy birthday." I finished

 Octobers smile somehow got brighter.

 "How are you feeling." asked Garrett.

October turned her head slowly toward Garrett 

"The doctor said I won't make it the bullet id in too deep." October answered.

Rachel then pulled out a box and handed it to October 

"It's for our friendship together" Rachel smiled 

October opened the box and a necklace was revealed 

"Rachel its beautiful thank you," said October

 Toby took the necklace and put it on October and he set the box on the table.

Two hours went by me, Rachel and Garrett stayed in the waiting room it was going onto 7:35 in the morning Rachel had her head on Garrett she was sleeping Garrett couldn't keep his eyes off me he kept staring then a cop walked up to us. 

"Garrett Hedlund" he asked

 Garrett looked. 

"Yes." he answered 

"We caught the killer he's going back to prison and you guys are now safe" stated the cop

 "Thank you officer" replied Garrett

 The officer left. Well Garrett and Rachel are safe but am I safe will October ever make it through this I thought.

Soon it was 8:15 we never left that's when I heard nurses screaming and doctors running to Octobers room Garrett shot up he ran over Rachel tried to grab him but she was to late, "stay back ser" yelled a nurse 

"She's bleeding" a doctor yelled 

"Someone hurry" a nurse screamed 

I grabbed Garrett quickly turning him to face me.

We both could hear the doctors.
