I opened my eyes slowly, but the lights were too bright for my head now, so I closed them again and tried to refocus my head and my vision when I opened them the next time.
“Where am I?" I asked.
“We are at home. How are you feeling now?" jenny asked.
“I think I'm fine. But I don't remember what happened before I had that panic attack.” I said.
“I don't understand what happened either, so I don't think I can actually tell you.” she told me “Oh by the way Edward is here. He is worried about you.”
Oh yeah, I remember now.
I was so stressed out and anxious because of his presence. That must be what triggered this panic attack.
But did he recognize me or not? I don't know.
“Where is he ?" I asked because I don't see him in the room.
“He is in the living room waiting for you to sober up before he comes in. He thought that maybe his presence gave you that panic attack, so he didn't want to be in the room when you woke up,” she told me and just like that, I was sure that he knew it was me.
He now knows who l really am, and this means I'm done... I'm in so much trouble once again.
“Jenny, can you please tell him to come in? I'm feeling a lot better.”
She got him and came back. When they entered I asked her to give us a moment alone, so she left.
We were silent for a little while and the awkwardness was so nerve-racking. Just when I was about to say something stupid to just break the silence, as I always do, he spoke.
“Long time no see, 'best friend'.”
“Edward, look I know you don't believe me but I did not kill Mia, I swear.”
“I know… I believe you, but you never gave me a chance to tell you that.”
“But I really didn_ what? You believe me! But that's not possible you were trying to arrest me before I escaped.”
“No, I wasn't trying to arrest you. I wanted to help you.”
“Oh! ... okay, I guess?"
“So why did you come back after all this time,” he asks me.
“I want to know who killed Mia. I want to search for evidence and avenge her death. I can't believe we both left like that. We should have done something.”
“That's exactly what I think. We were so stupid to just leave like that,” he said.
“So do you know anything concerning her death?" I asked him.
“No, all I know is that you were there because I saw both of you through the window across the street, but I saw you leave the room before I heard that noise,” he told me
Now I know why he believes me I guess … I have spent five years away from everything and everyone I know because of fear that no one will ever see the truth behind my words. Well, I guess I was stupid, as always...
When I was going to ask him why he said all these things back then, jenny entered and told me that she is going to watch a movie if we wanted to join her. I asked Edward to stay with us and hang out for a little while, and he agreed...
After jenny left, he asked me if she knows anything about my past. I told him that she doesn't know yet, but I am planning to tell her tomorrow. Then, We left the room to watch the movie. After a while, he excused himself and left, and because it's already midnight I told jenny that I'm going to bed.
The next morning, I woke up to Jenny's voice telling me that breakfast will be ready in 30 minutes, so I got up, took a quick shower, put on my clothes, and went to help her finish preparing. When I went out, I saw that she already finished preparing our breakfast and was waiting for me to join her.
We ate while talking about trivial things like what our plans for the day are, and after we finished I told her that we need to talk. She only nodded and came with me to my room.
We entered, and I closed the door behind us. I don't really know why I didn't just talk to her outside or why I closed the door, but I just did. Maybe I was trying to draw out the time before I have to tell her. Then, I sat beside her on the couch that is in my room and started telling her everything about my past, Mia's murder, Edward, and why I left, and now came back again.
During the time I was telling her my story, she just looked at me with no emotions or reactions. After about half an hour of talking about my past and near the end of my story, I started to get nervous because of her passive look, and when she noticed that I'm getting uncomfortable, she hugged me tightly and said “I believe you Roze, don't worry. Or should I now call you sky?"
“No, don't call me sky. No one can know who I really am. only Edward knows, okay?"
“Okay, don't worry...”
