The next morning, I go to school feeling faint.
"Are you ok?" Heather asks as we head to lit.
"Yeah," I said placing a hand on my forehead, "I'm fine."
She looked at me, her eyes full of worry.
"So, you guys are coming to Bruno's wedding, right?" I said changing the subject.
She glared at me.
"I'll get a drink of water," I said.
As I turn the corner, I hear something.
"You know you still love me," says Amber.
I knew I would regret doing this. I turned my head to see her trying to unbutton Mickey's shirt.
"Amber, stop! Remember, we're over? I don't love you. In fact I don't think I ever did."
He pushes her off. She crawls back to him, and kisses his neck. He then noticed me, pushed her off, and ran to me as everything went black.
"Mel? Mel? Mel?"
I opened my eyes, surprised to see Mickey. He presses a cup of water to my lips. I drank it, willingly. I was in the nurse's office. I was lying down on the small cot by the window. My head was throbbing.
"What happened?" I asked.
The nurse came towards me.
"You fainted. Michael brought you here."
"Did I hit my head badly?" I asked Mickey.
"No," he said, "I got to you in time."
"My head's throbbing," I croaked.
"Did you eat anything?"
I hadn't eaten anything since last night.
"No," I said as I sat up.
Bad move. I placed a hand on my forehead.
Mickey gently made me lay down.
"Should I get her some food?" he asked.
She smiled, shaking her head.
"I'll get," she said walking out of the room.
Mickey placed his hand on my forehead.
"Am I hot?" I asked, wondering if had a fever.
"Yes," he said smiling.
"You're freakin' smiling! If I have a fever_"
"You don't have a fever."
I blushed. He kissed my forehead.
"What time is it?" I asked.
"Really? How long have I been out?"
The last time I checked, it was 2:00.
"An hour or so," he said.
"Did you freak?"
"Uh, yeah," he said raising his raising his eyebrows.
I saw the pain his eyes. I smiled, assuring him I was fine. All of a sudden, Jared rushed into the room, flowers in ine hand, a card and teddy bear in another. Oh, God.
"Are you all right?" he asked, noticing Mickey stroke my hair.
Mickey glared at him, while I nodded. After a moment of awkard silence, Jordan and Heather come in and walk out as soon as they see the "horrible tension". Awesome friends, aren't they?
The nurse came in as Mickry finally ignores Jared. The nurse looked at Jared and smiled, handing me a tray full of fruit, cheese, and a sandwich with ham. After I eat a little, she takes my tray.
"Alright," she said, "one of you have to take her home, and one of you take her car."
"I'll take her home," said Mickey and Jared at the same time.
