Will’s POV

“You need a shower,” Charlotte says for the one hundredth time.

“No, I don’t.”

“Yes, you do!”

“You are really starting to get on my nerves.”

“And you are really starting to stink up the room,” she says with a smug grin and I just roll my eyes.

“You know I can’t leave. What if she wakes up?”

“No, but I do know that when she does wake up she won’t want to smell your ass!”

“I can’t leave,” I say through clenched teeth.

“God bless! I was thinking about telling security to come get you, but one sniff of you and they will run away, screaming like little bitches.” I roll my eyes and walk out the door, slamming it behind me. When I turn around I see everyone staring at me.

“What?” I ask and throw my hands up. They sure did turn around after that. After that I walk out of the door and to my car.

The whole car ride was painful because I just couldn’t stop thinking about how I left her.

I had made a plan to go home, shower, and eat, but I couldn’t because the one person that I’ve been avoiding for the past month is sitting on the porch.

“What the hell are you doing here?” I ask her.

“Because baby. I missed you,” Rachel says as she tries to kiss me. “Why haven’t you come to school?”

“Because,” I say trying to shut her up.

“Oh, I understand. How’s the little slut doing? How about her dad?” She says with a sadistic grin.

“What the fuck did you just say?”

“Don’t try to hide it. Everyone in the school already knows that Bailey has daddy issues,” she says while giggling.

“You twisted little bitch! You better leave right now or it will be bad news for you,” I say through a clenched teeth.

“What are you going to do? Hit me?”

“Fucking leave.”

“No! I know you love me and once you’re done feeling sorry for the bitch you’ll be mine.” Before I know what I’m doing I am stalking towards her.

“William!” I hear my mom say as she opens the door. “Get your ass in her right now!” I turn around to look at her and she looks like she is about to explode because her face is so red with anger. I turn back around flip Rachel off and then head inside.

As expected my mom starts screaming and yelling at me as soon as the door shuts.

“What the hell William? You hit girls now?”

“No, she was just being a bitch,” I say, leaving out the fact that I have indeed hit a girl. Bailey.

“If this is about Bethany, it’s—”

“Bailey,” I say but it sounded more like a growl than anything.

“Sorry,” she breathes out. I just roll my eyes and head upstairs to the bathroom.

I get in the shower and think about the one girl who has constantly crept her way into my mind. I didn’t realize it but at some point in my thoughts I had started crying. I quickly wash my hair and body, and get out.

I went to the kitchen and did what Charlotte said and got an apple. I was about to sit down to eat it but as soon as my mom started nagging me about what happened with Rachel, I went outside.

I could still hear my mom begging me to come back inside but I ignore her and get in my car. I head back to the hospital thinking about Charlotte is going to chew my ass out for not eating an actual meal but I don’t give a fuck.

I get to the hospital and go inside the room. As soon as I open the door I am hit with the smell of burning incense.

“Two questions. First did she wake up?”

“Don’t you think I would have told you if she woke up?” She asked, which makes me roll my eyes.

“Second question. Why does it smell like a spa in here?”

“One question. How do you know what a spa smells like?” She asks smiling.

“I-I don’t. I-It’s j-just what I think it w-would s-smell like,” I stutter while glaring at her.

“Ha,” she says sarcastically, “I don’t believe that. I think little William goes to the spa every once and a while. Maybe to get a pedicure or a mani—”

“Will you stop?” I yell.

“So-rry," she says dragging out the syllables and holding up her hands in mock surrender. “Just to let you know if that hurt your feelings, you don’t want to know the stuff that I don’t say,” she says while laughing.

“Oh my god!” I say, throwing my arms in annoyance. I start walking out the door when she starts talking again.

“Where are you going?”

“Away from you!”

“Don’t be a little bitch. If you are leaving though get me a Snickers,” she says and I walk out.
