Chapter 22

Lexi’s POV from now on:

I woke up and my head started hurting really bad. I thought that I had a hangover from drinking too much at yesterday’s party.

Wait, there was no party yesterday. All my memory comes back to me.

Me meeting James asking him to take Iris back. Him asking Iris to marry him. We having dinner. It was a happy day.

I try to touch my forehead because it feels funny but it hurts to move my hand. Shit! What has happened to me? My heartbeat accelerated. Everything came flooding back to me. I remember seeing Lilly and Axl kissing. I broke up with him. And then I was hit by a car.

I remember my speech I gave Axl too. I look at my hand and found my tiffany’s bracelet missing and I remembered giving it back to Axl. I missed it. It kept me cam whenever I was just edgy.

A machine next to me started beeping and a doctor comes in along with me and Axl’s parents and Hannah.

“Lexi, you finally woke up,” Hannah said.

“Pumpkin, I was only unconscious for a day,” I say and everyone exchange glances, “Right?” I ask.

“No honey, you were out for 5 days,” my dad said holding my hand. Oh my god. 5 days!

2 months later.

I was completely healed by now. James and Iris had postponed their wedding till I was fine and completely healed.

“Lexi darling we don’t want to get married until you are fine. I don’t want to get married hen the person who brought James and I together. We will wait for you to heal,” she had said.

“Lexi we got to know everything that happened between you and Axl. All you have to know is that he never cheated on you,” my dad told.

Even though it had been 2 months since I have broken up with him, I was still very much in love with him. I haven’t gone back to the flat or Uni. I stayed in my house and I received flowers from Axl one day and it had a note with it.

“Dear Lexi,

This letter might be the last thing you want to read right now since we just broke up, but I thought that if I didn’t confess my feelings to you, I can never do it. I can never say how much I love you. Why? Because I know that we are never going to get through this. I’m sorry for hurting you. I never want to be the reason why a single tear falls down that pretty face. I never meant to make you upset. I know that this won’t make a difference. But I felt like I needed to say something because I hate that I upset you, even for a moment. I should not have been so cruel to someone so kind. I love you and because I love you.”

I regretted not listening to his side of the story.

Here I was standing as the bridesmaid for James and Iris. Axl was their Groomsman.

They said, “I do,”

I had asked them the permission to say something out loud for Axl and they agreed to it.

“Axl, I know that this is embarrassing for you that I am doing this out loud but I think that this is the right thing after I accused you,” I say and everyone looks at me including Axl.
