The door is kicked open by Arissa. She isn't sick at all. She looks like she's going to have a mental breakdown at any time now.
"MMM-AAAA-- ISSSSSSS-" Arissa says loudly while stuttering.
"Calm down first, then tell us." Miguel says. Arissa shakes her head and tries to talk once again.
"CRRRITTTT--TI--CCCC CC-NNNNDITTT-NNNN GOOO HOSSSSPPPPP-!!"
She loses her breath. She doesn't look to good. I guess she is really sick.
"WHAT!? I'LL TELL YOU GUYS WHAT SHE SAID LATER, WE HAVE TO GO." Blake says, gets up and runs out the door.
The rest of us dash out and we get to the garage.
"DON'T USE THE CAR, GET IN THE CHOPPERRR!" I hear a loud voice shout. I look up and I see Angeliz piloting a heli. How the fuck...!?
All of us get in the chopper.
"OKAY. WHAT THE FUCK'S GOING ON!?" I shout.
"Max's in the hospital. She's in critical condition. I got the news from Nathan." Angeliz says.
"SO WHY THE FUCK ARE WE USING A HELICOPTER!?" Miguel shouts.
"Its awesome and we can get there faster." Angeliz says.
"DO YOU EVEN KNOW HOW TO FLY A HELICOPTER?!" Twinsie shouts.
"NOPE! SO PRAY THAT WE DON'T CRASH!" Angeliz shouts.
"ANGELIZ YOU IDIOTTTT!!!!!!!!" Miguel, Twinsie, Arissa and I shout in unison.
We're all going to die at this rate.
"JUST LET ME PILOT!" Blake shouts.
"OH HELL NAWWWW. YOULL FOLLOW THE SPEED LIMIT RULE." Angeliz replies.
"SINCE WHEN WERE THERE SPEED LIMITS FOR HELICOPTERS!?' Miguel shouts.
"SINCE TODAY." Angeliz yells.
"You're a fucking smartass, you know." I say.
"Yep. I'm as smart as Einstein!" Angeliz says jokingly.
"WATCH OUT!" Arissa shouts.
HOLY SHIT. My heart races and skips a beat.
"DAHHHHHHHH KILLLLLLL IT WITH FIREEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!" Angeliz shouts and starts pressing random buttons.
"THIS HELICOPTER DOESN'T HAVE MISSILES, IDIOT!!!!!!!" Bianca shouts.
"WE'RE GONNA DIEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!" Miguel shouts.
My head hits the side of the chopper.I black out and lose consciousness.
Crap. I thought we were all going to die. Angeliz miraculously changed the copter's direction just when it was going to crash straight into a building. Clearly, she doesn't see the giant difference between using a helicopter in games and in real life.
"ANGELIZ YOU RETARD!" Miguel shouts.
"Hey, we're still alive, it's all good." Angeliz replies.
"Angeliz, HOW THE HELL DID YOU GET IN MY HELICOPTER!?" Arissa shouts angrily.
"You left the keys in your room, I took it and yeah." Angeliz answers.
"COULD YOU JUST STOP TAKING THINGS THAT AREN'T YOURS!?" Arissa shouts furiously, lashing out at Angeliz.
"I thought it was mine." Angeliz replies.
Arissa continues to lash out at her.
"Blake..." Bianca mumbles.
"Huh, what is it?" I ask.
She then points at her sister, Zoe.
"Err, Angeliz..." I say softly.
"What?" She asks.
"Zoe's err, dead?" I say.
"Why does it sound like you're unsure?" Angeliz answers.
"Well, she isn't really dead, just unconscious. I'm blaming you for this though."
"Nah, it was her fault, she didn't wear a seatbelt."
"YOU AREN'T WEARING ONE EITHER!" I shout.
"Wearing seatbelts are too mainstream." She replies.
I facepalm. Sometimes she can be really smart, but at times she can be the stupidest being in the universe.
I look at the side, Arissa looks as worried as hell now.
"You okay?" I ask.
She looks at me, blushes and immediately looks away.
"Yeah. I-I'm just worried about Max." she says.
"You sound sick." I say.
"DUHHHHHHHHHH. SHE IS SICK, DUMBASS." Angeliz shouts.
"HOW DID Y-YOU H-HEAR THAT!?" I shout.
"OF COURSE I HEARD IT, YOU'RE RIGHT BEHIND ME." Angeliz shouts back.
"...baka" I hear Bianca mumble something.
"Hm? What is it?" I ask.
"Nothing, absolutely nothing." Bianca says and looks away.
Was it something I said?
Soon after that, we arrived at the hospital. Once Arissa spotted Nathan, she ran to him and gave him a hug.
"It's going to be alright." I say, trying to reassure Nathan.
"I know that. You didn't have to tell me." He replies.
"I was just trying to brighten your mood." I answer back.
"Well, thanks anyway." He says.
I look around. Everyone else's sitting on the benches, except for Miguel.
"Where's Miguel?" I ask.
"He's gonna help the other surgeons a hand with Max' s operation." Angeliz says.
I sit down and anxiously wait. I hope Max's gonna be alright.
I look to my side, Zoe's waking up. Thank God she's alright.
"Blake, continue your story." I say.
"You just woke up and you ask for that?" He says.
"Yes, so go." I answer back.
He looks at me for a while, signaling me that he isn't in the mood to tell me now. But, he takes a deep breath and continues the story.
"After what happened, Angeliz, and the rest of us was taken to court. Arissa was already deemed innocent since the whole student body absolutely idolizes her. Unlike Angeliz. Angeliz's the most feared person in school. She has a bad record in school. So, they obviously blamed her. The police didn't even bother investigating the case. Angeliz was actually able to get video evidence the next day. Everyone thought it was fake though, because they all know how skilled she is with a computer. So, she debated for quite a while, the school, the fraternity and the police didn't stand a chance against her. They became speechless. So, the guys in the fraternity were sentenced three months of prison."
"So, if Angeliz is a bad student, shouldn't she be removed or expelled from the school?" Twinsie asks.
"That's impossible. Angeliz' s grades are abnormally high, her grades help the school since they get recognized internationally." He replies.
"WHAT!?" I accidentally shout.
"Yeah. She's a smartass."
"Wait... How does Angeliz have a bad rep? She's not stupid enough to be the loudmouth dumbass in class."
"I guess she changed. In the university, she's the loudmouth troublemaker who gets what she wants and won't take a no for an answer."
"So that's how she became director."
"Yeah, she didn't want to though. She was just forced since everyone thought she'd be a good leader since everyone except for the both of us are afraid of her, and shit like that. Anyway, that's the reason why she's mad at the police. It was all my fault though. If I weren't so stupid, she'd never have to stress herself on that."
"I see, but its not your fault. Blame the fraternity."
*DING!* Something beeps. I look around to find where it came from.
The emergency room's sign stops lighting. I guess Max's operation's done. I wonder if she's alright. If she's not, what's gonna happen to Nathan? I don't want to see him in such a gloomy state. That's just going to break my heart. I want to be with Nathan, but that's simply impossible. He likes Max, not me. But, if Max dies, will he like me again? UGH! WHAT AM I THINKING!? I am really going to lose my sanity. In fact, I think I've already lost it. I hate being bipolar.
I dash towards the room. The nurses try to stop me, but I push them away. As I was about to open the door, it opens for me. Miguel's standing right in front of me now.
"IS SHE ALL RIGHT?!" I shout worriedly.
"I'll tell you if you calm down." He replies.
I grab his coat and shout at his face.
"HOW THE HELL CAN I CALM D-" I suddenly feel someone tugging my shirt.
"THAT'S ENOUGH! CALM DOWN FIRST." Zoe shouts while holding on to my shirt. I let go of Miguel and turn around.
"WHAT'S YOUR PROBLEM?" I shout.
"JUST CALM THE FUCK DOWN. NOTHING GOOD'S GONNA COME OUT FROM THAT." She shouts back.
"Ugh... Anyway, Max's okay. She's gonna have to stay here again for a few days. She's partially awake, so don't visit her now, she needs the rest. If you do, she might panic, her anxiety would rise. Because of her accident, I think she might have PTSD. So, for now she needs to rest, not to be stressed." Miguel says.
"I just want to see her, I'm not gonna wake her up." I say and go in the room.
"HEY!" Miguel shouts.
I feel an even stronger tug now. I turn my head and I see Zoe grabbing my hand, trying to pull me out of the room. I escape from her grip and I go in the room. I suddenly hear footsteps, it sounds like someone's running towards me. I turn around, it's just Arissa. She sits down near the bed where Max is. I walk towards her and Max.
"So, what really happened to Max?" Arissa asks.
"Well, she got a panic attack and then the infection she had got even worse, so they had to perform a surgery on her and calm her down at the same time." I reply.
"As long as she's still alright, I'm happy." Arissa says. I look at Max. Tears suddenly stream down from my eyes. I guess I'm just really glad. It's a miracle how Max's still alive. I look to my side, Arissa's crying as well. I pat her back to cheer her up.
"I'm really thankful that Max's gonna marry someone like you." She says.
"I'm really glad to be able to meet your amazing friend."
"She isn't just my friend, she's my best friend."
"I can't wait for her recovery."
"Hey, you two shouldn't be in here." Someone says. I turn around. Shockingly, it was Angeliz who said that.
"Yeah. I'm sorry. Nathan, let's go already." Arissa says.
I follow her out of the room.
