It wasn't that I was nervous, or ashamed, but I genuinely didn't know if Ethan loved me. Nick began to stagger, to fall. Ethan helped support him, and he was hurried to hospital. Ethan and I talked the rest of the day about him, worried.
We had tried to sneak out of school, to the hospital, but the head master caught us. At the end of the day, the last lesson, Ethan and I started to walk towards the hospital. I bit my lip nervously, then reached over, and took Ethan's hand. He jumped slightly, and looked at me smiling. The smile on his face fanished, and I saw why.
Raiku came walking towards us. Ethan let go of my hand, an shoved them in his pockets, resisting the urge to jump at him.
"Jade, I need to speak with you." The words tripped over themselves as the fell from his mouth. He pulled me away from Ethan, and took both of my hands.
"Jade, there were rumours that you were dead, and, I had to find you...because, I love you, and you deserve better than that so and so over there." He smiled warmly. I tried to pull away from him, but he held me fast. I pulled harder, but Raiku pulled me in, forcing his lips to mine.
An angry shout came, and I was pulled firmly but gently away from him. My hands shook madly. Ethan stood in front of me protectively.
"Move it. Jade will agree that she hates you as much as I" BANG! Ethan punched Raiku hard in the stomach, before sliding his arms round me, and picking me up bidal style, before running towards the hospital.
I laughed, looking up at Ethan. Ethan placed me down softly. "Thanks."
"Do you....do you hate me?" he asked in a small voice. I looked at him in disbelief. I held his shoulders, and smiled at him.
"Why," I started, kising his forehead.
"Would I,", kissing the tip of his nose.
"Hate you?" I asked, shaking my head softly, before kissing him tenderly on the lips. "Ethan, I love you." I whispered.
Ethan smiled, saying nothing, and we continued on to the hospital. We arrived, and found nick's ward. He was in a deep sleep, with Jule by his side. I looked at Nick. I touched his forehead lightly, pulling away. He ws so cold. I put both hands onto his cheeks there was warmth there. I kissed his forehead gently.
"Get well soon, dear friend." I said, tears in my eyes. I straightened up, sobbing gently. Clever.
"How did this happen?"
"No idea, Ethan. There's no point being angry about it." choked Julez. I nodded. Ethan led me away in silence. We left the hospital, myself still in tears.
"Shh, now. Don't cry." He whispered, wiping my tears away gently. I smiled.
"You know when Julez asked if we were together? Why did you say what you did?" he asked.
"Coz I don't know if you want me or not. And I love you, and I don't know if you love me in return..." I whispered, tears welling up again. He put his finger under my chin, making me look up. He wiped the tears away, before holding me close.
"My heart and mind are very confused. Let's go home."
"Yeah. Let's" I sighed.
