What was that noise? It just kept going on and on. It was getting on my nerves; it just wouldn’t stop.
My head hurt so badly. I didn’t know why, but I wanted it to stop soon.
I slowly opened my eyes, looking around the room. Everything seemed to be white. Why? Where was I? I couldn’t tell. I didn’t have any clue of where I was. I slowly tried to sit up, but found that I couldn’t. I didn’t know if I was strapped down or if I just didn’t have the strength.
“Heather, you’re awake!” A voice called excitedly.
I turned my head to face where the sound of the voice was coming from.
“Mi amor!” Alejandro called and kissed me shortly afterwards.
“What happened?” I asked groggily after we released.
“You fainted. You hit your head too during the fall.”
That explained why my head hurt, but I still had more questions that I need to ask.
“Is the baby all right? I didn’t hurt it when I fell did I?”
I could totally tell that I was out of it. I wasn’t acting too normal, that could have been due to hormones though. I didn’t know what was going on.
“No,” He smiled, “The doctor said that she’s going to be just fine.”
“She?” I was smiling now along with him, “It’s a girl?”
“Si, she’s perfectly healthy, too.”
We kissed again until we heard, “Hey! I’m still here you know!”
Alejandro and I turned to face the owner of the voice: Cody.
“Cody, why are you here?” I asked.
“Sierra made me stay here while she used the bathroom,” The nerdy boy groaned.
I didn’t say anything and went back to my previous activity.
“Ooh! I’ve got to get my phone out so I can get some pics and post them on my blog!” I heard Sierra squeal.
I rolled my eyes, not caring of what was going on; I was happier doing what I was doing.
They released me from the hospital later that day after running some more tests to double check that everything was all right. Of course, everything was fine and I got to leave, but it was hospital regulations that I left in a wheelchair. Why, I had no clue.
As Alejandro wheeled me out, he brought up something that I was hoping that he wouldn’t, “I’m surprised that your parents didn’t come to make sure that you were okay. I know that you don’t get along with them, but I thought that they would have at least wanted to make sure that you were okay.”
My eyes widened. I was surprised that Sierra hadn’t mentioned that I had been kicked out to anyone, especially Alejandro. I didn’t really want to deal with admitting to him of the true reason, “Oh, they’re really busy, you know.”
“I thought that they would have at least called.”
I looked over at Sierra, mouthing to her to say something to change the subject. She nodded and pointed to something in front of our group, “There’s my mom’s car!”
I sighed, hoping that Alejandro wouldn’t bring this up again.
We made our way over to Serena’s (Sierra’s mom) car. Alejandro, Cody, and I got into the back seat. Before any of us realized it, Sierra squished her way into the back with us. She pulled Cody up onto her lap to make more room, not that it made much of a difference, considering how small Cody is.
“Uh, Sierra,” Cody started to protest, but Sierra just kissed him to shut him up.
Serena started driving to her house.
We all decided that we would just hang out at Sierra’s house for the rest of the night, and we did.
The four of us stayed in the living room, which had Chris wallpaper on it. Luckily, it was dark and we paid more attention to what was on the TV.
I ended up falling asleep in Alejandro’s arms. I think everyone else fell asleep shortly afterwards because everyone was asleep in the same places they were earlier when I got up at about two in the morning to get something to drink.
I wiggled my way out of Alejandro’s arms, trying not to wake him up too. I made my way into the kitchen. I opened one of the cupboards, grabbed a glass out, and got some water from the faucet. Once I drank that, I laid the cup in the sink; I then found the nearest bathroom.
It was a bathroom that I hadn’t used before, at least I didn’t think so. I quickly peed and flushed the toilet, and I kind of regretted doing that when I heard it: Chris’s voice over the flushing. I wasn’t expecting that, causing me to let out a scream, accidentally. I washed my hands as quick as I could before the door flew open and the light came on.
“What happened?” Sierra demanded.
“I used the bathroom,” I groaned.
“You flushed the toilet, didn’t you?”
“This is the bathroom you never want to use. I mean, the walls should’ve tipped you off.”
I looked at the walls. I bet that you can’t guess what was on them. Chris.
I gave her a look, “How was I supposed to see the walls if the lights were out?”
She ignored my last statement and continued on talking, “Use the bathroom down the hall instead of this one. Mom let me decorate that one myself.”
I didn’t even want to respond to that. I already had a feeling how that bathroom was decorated; it was probably covered with Cody. Didn’t that house have a normal bathroom?
“I’d rather not, thanks.”
