I step out of the shower, grab my towel and start to dry off than glances at the mirror to notice I didnt get all my eye liner off so I grab a face cloth and start scrubbing at it. Once it's all off I pick up my towel and walk into my room to get dressed. I walk into my huge walk in closet and start searching through my clothes to find something to wear at the time I'm down to only wearing a bra and panties thanI hear knocking at the door. ICheck the clock and realize it's Alex and Jessica here for their morningly visit. Every morning Alex; my sweet kind hearted bf, and Jessica; my best friend always stop in for a visit and we usually have a coffee or somethingtogether. Today it was just Jessica which worried me because if one of them weren't to come than it was always Jessica. Anyways, I grap a Shirt and pair of black skinny jeans and quickly put them on. I slidemy brush through my long black hair and grap a sweater with finger holes to hide the cuts from the other night. I run downstairs to find Jessica sitting on the couch with her head down; definitely not her usual self. I walk over and mange to get three words out of my now dry mouth. "Where is Alex?" I studder with my words as I speak to Jessica. She respondes with a hand genture saying follow me. She gets up walks to the door and out to the car climbs in and we drive away. In the car neither of us talk mainly because even if I tried I dont think I could get anything to come out of my mouth. 15 minutes later and shes pulling into the hospital parking lot, I turn and look at her and say "Why are we here? What happened to Alex?" Next thing I know shes holding my hand and helping me out of the car as tears run down my face. We walk in and shes asks the lady at the front desk for Alex's room number. I looked at the ladies face than down to her name tag and read the name; it says Kathleen. I look back up at her and say "Thank you Kathleen." In as calm ofa voice as I could possibly do. She nods and points up to the right direction. I still have no idea what happened to Alex or why he's in the hospital but I slowly walk down the hallway. I look around the hallway, up and down the walls and in my mind they appear to be black, dark and gloomy. As I keep walking and we get closer and closer it seems as though it gets darker and darker and I start to get worried. Just around the corner is Alex's room and the walls are a pitch black with red sploches all over in my mind untill I finally get freaked out and shake my head. Jessica gives me the weirdest look so I guessed that it was just me seeing all this but the walls were a light pink now so I ignored the thought. I walk up to the door to Alex's room, take a deep breath and walk through the door. When I get in I see my baby Alex laying on the bed motionless and I run over to him crying. I sit down beside the bed and call his name "Alex? Baby boy? Hun? Anything? Please answer me.." Jessica walks over to me slowly, "He's not going to answer you dear.. He's in a coma" "He-he-he's what?" I stuttered She walks up behind me and gives me a big warm hug and whisperes, "Its going to be ok hun. Don't worry" I let go of her and climbed into bed beside him and hugged him tightly.

That day I fell asleep holding him tightly and woke up 2 days later and he was gone. I shot up straight and looked around the room to find outI was back at homein my own bed. I hoppped up looked at my hair and went to my personal bathroom to have a shower. After my shower Iput on a thick black line over the top of my eyes with my pencil liner and than put a thin layer ofblack mascara on after that. I walk into my closet and pick out a pair of dark blue jeans and a black ripped up shirt.Than I realize I don't have a way of getting there and I search the room for my cell phone. I search everywhere, under the bed ontop of the bed, everywhere but still no cell phone I look up and Jessica is standing at the door holding her keys and my cellphone. I walk over to her slowly and ask how he is. Her only responce is" He's still in a coma." I look up at her and ask "Well can I see him.. alone? I need to ask him something." " Hes in a coma dear it wont do anything." Says Jessica. " I know he will respond in some way.. trust me I need to do this" She grabs my hand and pulls me to the door, I slip on my hot pink DC shoes and grab my hot pink lulu lemon sweater and walk out the door. When we get there I walk straight up to his room while Jessica goes and grabs a coffee from the Food court. I peek into the room and he's laying there than I see his leg move a little and I run over to him. "Alex..? Sweetheart are you awake?" I whisper. His eyes blink open and he whispers "Sam..? Is that you?" I smile and say "Nope its Santa Claus" Than walk over and give him a big hug and whisper "uf course it is baby" into his ear. He smiles and says "I missed you." Than Jessica walks in with three coffee's and smiles a big grin, " So someone decided to wake up finally hey?" Alex giggles and tries to sit up. " I never asked.. what caused this?" I said looking back and forth from Alex to Jessica"s face that instantly hit the floor. "Well uh, uhm, a car accident. It was a hit and run but uh the runner.. was uhm.. Logan." I slowly looked at Alex and pulled his blanket off to see both legs in cast's and his arm that was hidden under the blanket had a bright pink cast on it as well." Lo-Lo-Logan? was it purposly?" "yes dear, it was." says Jessica. I sit there scared not knowing what to do. Logan was my last ex boyfriend. He has this huge grudge against Alex because I dumped him for Alex and because he knows I love Alex more than I ever loved him. Knowing this was done purposly causing Alex to go into a coma and break both his legs and an arm made me think. Very hard. The next day I got up, got ready and went to school like it was a normal day and when I got there I approached Logan. Logan knew he was in shit but acted as if we were still in a relationship. "Hey baby, How areyou this morning?" "Don't ever! touch Alex again!I don't care how big of a grudge you have against him. If you EVER touch him or hurt him in anyway I will go to your house myself and physically beat you and cause the samedamage and pain you did to him!" At this point e had everyone staring at us and I was yelling so loud the people on the third floor of our school could have heard me. "You have a problem with what I acidently did to your little wimp of a boyfriend?" "What did you call him?!" I yelled. Everyone around us startedchanting "Fight. fight, fight, fight" Over and over until he slapped me accross the face and They all went "Wooooah!" I got up holding my face and threw him a punch to the gutthan kickedhim while he was on the floor and walked away before a teacher came. Everytimehe saw me in thehallways he stopped and turned towalk the other way. Icould tell he was scared of me but I knew that would wear off soon. That night I didn'tgo to the hospital I just stayed home and worked on my drawings. I had a hobby I enjoyed very much but only Alex knew about it. Even Logan didn't know I liked to draw. I sat down and than heard at knock at the front door. I stopped and listened for it to go away but each time they knocked harder and louder. Finally I got fed up and walked to the door. As I opened it slowly I looked out and Logan was just walking away. As fastas I could I slammed the door shut and hoped he didn't see me. Unfortunatly he did and came running back at the door, hammering on the door I finlly unlocked it and hid in the coat closet right next to the door. He opened the door and walked in than I noticed I left the closet door open enough that there was ab bit of light shining in and thana shoe fell out.Oh shit i thought. he opened the closet door but not enough to see me, than I was caught. He poked his head into the closet and saw me.Next thing I know everything went black and I woke up to being in the hospital in another bed next to Alex. " Baby girl?! you awake?!" he starteed yelling as my eyes fluttered open. "Im here.. wait.. why am I here?" I said quietly. Alex starts crying and grabs his crutches than walks over to me slowly. "Logan.. He said you beat the crap out of him at school.. in front of all his friends and he just came back for revenge." He sat down beside me and gave me a big hug that ached badly but I needed the hug. Again I had fallen asleep in his arms but I didn't mind at all because we were both alive. He was sleeping so I got up and found out my arm was broken but that was all. I went down to the food court and found Jessica sitting at a table all alone and went over to talk to her. "Hey Jes." "Oh hey Sam" She looked up at me and smiled. "I see your well enough to get up." " Its just a broken arm nothing that will stop me." I said with a big grin on my face. she smiled again and got up to go get me a coffee but I stopped her and said "No its fine I don't feel like having a coffee." "Orange juice? lemeonade? Pepsi? anything?" " No im fine but thanks Jess." I replied in a quiet and calm voice. "Okay well the docter said both you and Alex can leave as long as you guys rent a wheel chair for Alex." Said Jessica. "Ok, well Alex is sleeping right now so I'll let him finish sleeping before we head out." Jessica just nodded her head and we both stood up to walk back to room 103, Thats the room me and Alex stayed in.The next day when we got home we found out that Logan had been caught and had to take anger managment classes and was sentenced to a one year in minimum security prison.
1 year later

Its been a year since Logan's attack and me and Alex live together now still happily in love. As for Logan hes better alot better. He just got out of jail less than a month ago and arrived at our house to appolagize which was very surprising. We invited him in and we allsat and chatted for awhilethen had some coffee. "im very sorry to both Alex and you Sam, I got abit out of hand with myself and I would like to ask if we could try at being just friends now?" Me and Alex both looked at each other astonished, than looked back at Logan and nodded our heads in agreement. The next few weeks just flew by, we had supper with Logan I beleive 4 times that week, went mini golfing once the next week and went to a movie "The Grownups" the next. "Logan has really changed hey Alex?" "Yes dear, its amazing how kind he really is." The next day we caught logan and Jessica in the mall together hanging out and walked up to them. "hey guys how are you?" I asked in a cheery voice. "Well uh, uhm good." They both said at the exact same time looking at each other. Something was up and both Alex and I could tell. "Whats up guys? Somethings going on." Alex said curiously. "Well uh hmm.. hard to say this without just blurting it out but We are getting married!" yelled Jessica. We talked for awhile celebrated and had a few drinks together that night. To this very day Alex and I are best friends With Jes and Logan and hope to be friends for a very long time. And that theyu were, they laughed had funny moments and sad moments together. A month after Jes and Logan had their wedding, Alex proposed to Sam and they too lived and died together of old age. Jessica, Alex, Logan and Sam all had an engraving on their grave saying "We had our hard times, we got through them all is better and we are together so let us Rest in Peace"
