Stop It, Stop Making Me feel So Small and Defenceless

I stood next to Julianna,Jerry and Nick, Jerry's arms around me."What if she's hurt?" I sobbed into his chest. He rested his cheek on the top of my head as teenagers groaned and walked back inside. Nick stood mumbling to Julianna, his back to us. 

"She'll be fine, don't you worry." 

"How can I not worry! She could get amnesia for banging her head or something! She'll never remember us!" he gave a small chuckle.

"So pedantic you are, she will be fine. Ethan will take care of her." I shot a glance back in the direction the ambulance left. 

Ethan. 

"Let's go," I whispered uneasily. 

Lunch was quiet because Nick and Julianna were nowhere to be seen. I shifted around in my seat, pulling my legs up and cuddling around them, my cheek resting on my knees. "Eat." Jerry said, pushing my tray of food to me. I shook my head and pushed it back. The rest of the day was slow, and Julianna and Nick were still nowhere to be seen.

After school I went to see Jade at the hospital, Ethan sat next to her. I tried to ignore him, but just watching him look at me put tears in my eyes. I smiled and hid the tears, giving Jade some ice-cream and flowers, "Feel better soon, Jade," I croaked uneasily, then turned to Ethan, "Ethan," I nodded and he scowled at me, then turned and walked back through the hospital and outside where I wiped my tears away a second before Jerry saw them.

"Did you give her my regards?" he asked. I nodded. "Come on then, to the restaurant."

"Oh yeah, our date. I completely forgot about that."

The End
