A/N: whale....about the updating...haha....


Sophie's Necklace will now be updated regualrly (I spelled that wrong...err)

Chapter Eleven

So much for heaven.

It's been about a month since I was moved into Alex's house. Out of the twenty eight days I have been here, Eighteen have been spent caring for a drunk Alex. Every now and then there would be a smashed bottle, or some vomit to clean up. 

I popped my head through the door, and looked at Alex. He was sound asleep, and was going to wake up with a killer hangover. I was extreamly pissed that this was happening, but I knew I couldn't leave him. Atleast, not right now...

I closed the door behind me, and looked around the room. Empty packages of cigarettes are scattered all over the floor. A few lighters in the corner of the rooms. Dirty clothes are thrown all over the floor. Then, my least favorite part. The empty bottles all over the floor. 

I cleaned his room for about an hour, and then went down stairs to grab a glass of water. As I walk to the sink, I step on an empty beer car. I run my fingers through my hair, and let out a very frustrated groan. Before I know it my fingers are running through the cabinets, looking for an Asprin. 

When I find the bottle, I cluth it in my hands. Slowly I tip it over, waiting for a pill to fall in my hand. It never does. I chuck the bottle across the room, and watch it hit the stair case. Maybe I should just wake up Alex, so he can take me to the store. 

That was a bad idea. 

As soon as I enter his room, my eyes fall onto the bottle in his hands. His head is tipped back, and the liquid slowly draining from the bottle. 

"What the hell Alex!" I scream at him. He looks up at me, his eyes already blood shot. "Do you plan on drinking your whole life away!" I slam my glass down onto the night stand, and turn back around to face Alex.

"Stop yelling at me!" 

He we go again. Another fight with buzzed Alex. I'm so done with this. "This is bullshit." I whisper, looking into his eyes.

"My whole life is bullshit!" He yells at me, and for a second I'm scared.

"Alex..." I rub my hands on my face. "I can't do this anymore. This is to much for me." 

"You think I asked for any of this?" He chuckles a cold hearted laugh. "I never asked for shit!" It's his turn to slam a bottle down, but this one tips over, and the Vodka spills all over his bed.

I reach out to touch his face. "Alex, look at you." I smile a weak smile. "This isn't you." 

He snarls. "Yes it is!"

"If this is you, then I'm leaving!" I pick up the bottle he had knocked over, and I hold it close to me. I close my eyes, and take a deep breathe. This was always the hardest part. Saying goodbye. "Goodbye Alex." 

I watch as his eyes widen, and his mouth hangs ajar. I close my eyes again, not wanting to feel quilt. "Nina..." I fell his fingers wrap around my arm. I instantly pull away. 

Be strong Nina, be strong. 

I open my eyes, and tears instantly fall from them. "Alex, it was a good five weeks. Actually, it was amazing. Even though I spent most of the time cleaning up after you. Now that's Sophie's back in town, things have gotten even messier." I push a few tears away from my lips. "I love you Alex." I reach on the tips of my toes, and kiss his cheek. "And that's why I'm leaving." 

Alex now had a few tears streaming down his face. He takes the bottle from my arms, and chugs down whats left of it. He clearly chose what was more important to him, and that wasn't me. 

I give him a nod, and walk out the door. Before compleatly leaving, I turn around. "Is it alright if I come and get my stuff later?" 

He doesn't look at me, but his head gives a small nod. As soon as I walk out of the house, I can't stop the tears. I sit on the front steps, and cry my eyes out for about an hour. I didn't care who was watching, and who wasn't. I just needed to let it all out.

Half an hour later, I arrive at the hospital. I slowly make my way to the front desk, dragging my feet along the floor. I must look like the cat lady. My hair was all tangled, and my face was pale. Maybe they thought I was checking into the Asylum.

When I reached the front desk the lady gave me a smile, but it faded as she looked me up and donw. "Hi, How can I-" 

"Sophie." I interupt her. "I need to see Sophie."

She gives a polite nod, and scrolls through the screen on her computer. After a few moments of typing, she looks up at me. "Room three 'o one B."

I give a half smile. "Thanks." 

I know my way around this hospital to well. I shake that thought from the back of my head, and reach the elevator. Once inside the elevator music playing, makes me want to rip my hair out. I tap my fot unpatiently as I wait for the doors to open.

Once they open, I take off and run through the hallway. I push my way inbetween people, and make my way down the crowded hallway. From where I am, I can see her doctor file into the room, a sad look filling his face. Instantly, I know.

"Stop! Stop! Please let me say goodbye!" I scream down the hallways, more tears falling from my eyes. 

People in the hallways stop what they are doing, and look at me. I ignore them, and keep running. When I reach her room, and push the door open, and run in. Everyone in the room looks at me, and I swear time stops. 

Sophie's parents are leaning over her bed, crying their eyes out. The doctors stand by Sophie, adding some morphine into her blood stream. Wait...morphine?

Time un-freezes intself, and I spring into action. When I appear next to Sophie, her eyes open. She gives me a small smile, and I smile back. I take her hand in mine, and then lean down. "Hey." I greet her.

"Hey." Her voice sounds more like a frog's croak, but I can still make out the words.

She closes her eyes again, and I know I don't have much time left. "I'm so sorry Sophie. I never did any thing I said I would. I didn't fix your necklace and-" 

"I know you and Alex are done. I can tell by the-" She start coughing, and I hand her some water. She takes a sip, and then starts again. "I can tell by the look on your face. You look heart broken." She gives me a sad look.

"I'm so sorry." My eyes start filling with tears again, Damn me for being such a baby. 

She shakes her head saying no. "Nina, you tried your best and that's all that matters. Ever if you and my brother didn't last forver, you still made him happy, and that's what matters." She tries to say something else, but her voice cracks. She leans her head back on her pillow. 

A loud beeping fills the room, and I look at the monitor next to Sophie's bed. It's going crazy. I know I only have minutes, maybe even seconds left. I start to panic as the beeping gets faster. I look at Sophie, but her eyes are still closed. 

I lean down, and kiss her forehead. "I love you Sophie, don't you forget that." 

"I love you too, don't forget me." A lone tear falls down her cheek, and then her body relaxes.

Now I understand what Ponyboy ment when he said Johnny looked like a cadle had been blown out inside of him. Now I understand why it was so painful for him. Looking at a lifeless body isn't the most plesent thing ever. 

My hand untangles from hers, and I fall to the floor. I lean against the corner of the room. I start rocking back and both, tears refusing to stop. I sit and the corner and watch every thing happen. I watch them wheel Sophie away, Her mom refusing to let go. I watch her dad try to pry his wife off of Sophie's dead body. Then I watch Alex walk in, sober for once.

As soon as he enters the room, I calm myself down. I stand up, and walk out of the room.

Loosing two people in one day...makes you want to die.


GUYS I CRIED SO HARD OKAY IM STILL CRYING, but please understand this is the Climax of the story. Sophie was planned to die, from the begginning, and thats why I had wirters block for so long. I didn't know how to write it....I hope this is okay...?

And I'm terribly sorry for the long update, but I hope you guys understand :/ Please forgive me.

I can't... I can't even explain how I feel. I just... wow. I'm pissed at Alex. I'm sad about Sophie. You know something weird? I heard something about them putting morphine in people's blood so it won't be painful when they pass away. Anyway, sad and deep chapter. Keep me updated I guess...
