-Sam...

I woke up in a sweat. Great. Another night terror. Yes, i said Night terror. I cant remember what happened, i just now that the dreams are terrifying. Sometimes i wake up sweating, like this morning, but other times, i scream until Cori and Andrew must hold me down while Quinton sedates me with the a medicine Cori came up with. I know im making it harder. I just dont know what to do. I can hardly help with anything with out freaking out. Usally, I'll hang out clothes out on the clothes line, while Andrew or Quinton or Cori works in the garden. At any slight noise, i have a panack attack. Everyday, Quinton re-assures me that im safe, and that it wont happen again; and i believe him, yet Im so scared, its hard. 

Maybe i just need to leave them..Since im obviosly such a nuessance.

 

-Quinton...

I feel like its my fault. I was just trying to get away, when i should have been watching out for Sam and Andrew. They all tell me it could have been any of us, an i  understand that; i guess. 

"Hey Sam, im going out to the garden.. You wanna hang laundry?" I ask her. She's playing chess with Finnick (Andrew) She smiles, nods, and stands up. I dont know why, but the simplicity of hanging laundry calms her down a bit. We walk outside and get to work. "Quinton," She starts, "Would things be easier if i werent here?" The question takes me by surprise. Im not sure how to answer it. Things might seem a bit easier if she werent here, but i know we would miss her so much.  "That doesnt really matter;" I answer slowly."Because you-" She doesnt let me finish before she breaks down and cries. I can hardly tell whats shes saying, but i can make out the jist. "I...Feel..like i'm..H-h-hurtingg.. you all by...N-n-not being..able..to work as...much." and she buries her face in her hands. I walk over and hug her, the sobs get quiter, and she wraps her arms around me. "You will never hurt us." I say in the softest voice i can. We stay this was a long time
