I looked at the door then at Ryker and rolled my eyes. "Oh don't worry, half asleep here will get it." I wrapped a blanket around myself, got up and opened the door. Misty stood there with tears in her eyes. She was still in her party dress but now it was stained with tears and make up. "Misty what's wrong?"
"It's Jayk... He... He..." she choked on her words.
"What happened Misty?" Ryker got up with a blanket around his waist and came over to us.
"I don't know! We left the party and decided to go back to my room. He was fine when we got there and we started kissing and... well you know. Then all the sudden he started to flip out. He was twitching and he couldn't speak. It looked like he was having a seizure. You have to help me, please. He passed out and I don't know what to do." She was crying really hard, her whole body shaking from the force of her sobs.
Ryker was quick to respond. "Give us two minutes and we'll come see what's going on."
"Thank you Ryker." Misty stood on her toes and kissed his cheek. "Thank you." She ran off, heading back to her dorm.
Ryker and I quickly got dressed then ran to the girls dorm and up to Misty's room. The door was wide open and Misty was kneeled by her bed where Jayk lay, unconcious. She was crying and whispering for Jayk to wake up. I went over to her, knelt down and gave her a hug which she returned with sobs into my shirt.
Ryker slowly walked over to the other side of the bed and looked down at Jayk. He had slight confusion in his eyes but tried not to let it show. I watched as he placed his hand on Jayk's sternum then started speaking in some foreign language. Soon Jayk's eyes fluttered open.
"Oh Ryker thank you!" Misty squealed, throwing herself at Jayk and kissing him all over. "Baby are you okay? Can you hear me? How many fingers am I holding up!?" she held up three shaking fingers.
"Babe calm down. I can hear and see just fine. But I can't move."
"Oh! Sorry." Misty crawled off him and blushed.
"No I mean I can't move. I feel really weak. I can't even lift my arms."
"It'll pass." Ryker said. "Do you know what happened Jayk?"
Jayk shook his head and glanced back and forth between Ryker, Misty and I. "All I remember is Misty and I were making out then everything went black. I heard someone scream my name but that's it. Then everything just stopped."
A few tears slid down Misty's cheeks. "You really scared me Jayk. It looked like you were having a seizure."
"I don't remember that... Ryker, do you know what's wrong with me?"
Sadly, Ryker shook his head. "I've never seen anything like this. I could have Laurren come check you out."
"Laurren scares me man."
"Bu he may have an answer."
Jayk shook his head as best he could. "It's fine. I'll just sleep it off and hopefully by morning I'll be better. Misty do you mind if I stay here for tonight? I'm too weak to get back to my room."
"Of course you can, love." Misty smiled and kissed his forehead. "I'd never let you be hurt alone."
By the next morning, Jayk was about ten times better and was able to get up and move around but Ryker didn't want to risk anything so he told Jayk to skip his classes for the day and rest. We all thought that by Tuesday he's be well enough to come back but it was just the oposite. He got even worse and it was taking it's toll on him. Misty missed all her classes to take care of him and the only time we really saw her was at lunch when she came to get food for her and Jayk. She didn't stay long though, just long enough to get food and rush off.
Ryker went to check on Jayk both nights and I tagged along with him. He was still in Misty's room because he had grown weaker and was unable to move. It seems every hour made him even more sick and worse than the hour before. His skin was as white as paper, his cheeks were sunken in and he had a fever high enough to cook two eggs on.
And by Wednesday, we all pretty much knew he wasn't going to last much longer. Well, all of us except Misty. She refused to believe he was dying and did everything in her power to make sure he would wake up the next day. It didn't work though. On Wednesday afternoon while in Wingology with Ryker, I got the text that made my heart sink to my stomach.
plz tell me this id no hapening. he not gone!
Jsut from reading the text and the way it was written, I knew Jayk was gone and Misty was crying so hard so could barely see her keyboard. I elbowed Ryker and showed him the text. Without a moments hesitation, he got up and ran out of the room.
"Mr. Daae!" Mr. Jones called after him. I got up and ran over to Mr. Jones with both mine and Rykers stuff in my arms.
"Mr. Jones, our friend just... passed on and we need to leave. I'm really sorry." I ran out of the room and followed Ryker to the girls dorm. When we got to Misty's room we found her laying on top of Jayk screaming at him to wake up. Tears gushed down her face like a waterfall as she continued to shake Jayk.
Ryker and I walked over to her and pried her off of Jayk but not without a fight. It took both of us but eventually Ryker had Misty held tight in his arms with her howling her cries at the stop of her lungs.
"Min text the twins and tell them Jayk's gone. Then get my phone and text Laurren to come here." I did as he asked and not five minutes later, all three men stood in the room with us. By that time Misty had escaped Rykers grasp and was laying on Jayk's dead body, crying her eyes out. It was a wonder she had any tears left. I had my own tears coming but Misty was crying bucket fulls.
Laurren walked over to the bed and check Jayk out, I pressumed trying to figure out what caused his sudden death. I saw in his eyes he was struggling with Misty in the way but he didn't say anything. The poor girls heart was all ready broken enough, why shatter it more by telling her she couldn't be with Jayk one last time? "This is peculiar." Laurren pondered as he check Jayk. "He doesn't seem to have anything really wrong with him. Did he have any life threatening diseases or anything?"
One of the twins shook his head. "Not that we know of."
"Hm... Peculiar. Come, lets talk out in the hall and give Ms. Grey a moment alone with him." we filed out into the hall and shut the door behind us. I heard Misty whimpering but nothing else. Laurren placed his hand on his chin and let out a deep breath. "This is so odd. No Dark Sider has ever died so suddenly before with no cause, rhyme or reason. Any ideas Ryker?"
"None. I'm just as stumped as you are."
They tossed ideas back and forth about what could ahve cause this adn the twins even joined in. I listened at the door to Misty to make sure she wasn't doing anyting she'd regret. I heard her digging around in something then she stopped. There was a sound almost like when a sword was being pulled out of it's holder then I heard Misty whimper a weak "I love you" to Jayk. It was then that I realized what she was doing.
"Misty, no!" I burst into the room but it was too late. She stabbed the dagger through her heart and collapsed on top of Jayk.
