Waiting

As soon as he said it his head dropped back to the floor. I rushed over to him to see if he was still alive. I lifted his head onto my thighs as I leant down just over his mouth. Nothing. I  thought he was dead but he started taking gentle breaths.

After what seemed like an eternity I was getting unpatient. He was still asleep taking steady breaths, which was good I think. He stirred abit and opened his eyes. I was so relieved.

"WOAH! Whats going on? Where am I?" he said.

"You have been in a bus crash. We all have." I said pointing around to each lifeless corpse.

"Oh yes. I remember now. What has happened since i slept?" he said looking around for a responce.

"Well I have been here awake for maybe two hours. You are the only other person who seems to be anywhere near alive," I said as I looked at his handsome face.

"You mean everyone else is dead? We are the only ones alive?" He said his eyes filling with tears.

"Yes".

"Isn't there anyone coming to rescue us?" He asked.

"Yes there are people outside the bus trying to help us out," I replied.

"Good." He said with a relieved expression on his face.

"Well i wouldn't count on getting out of here alive. The paramedics say the toxic fumes might kill us and the Firemen say with the gas leaking that could kill us too." I said looking at the ceiling. I looked back down to find him in tears. "Oh! I'm sorry. I'm known to be abit straight forward. They could be wrong. They did say it a long time ago and we are still alive. They think there is no survivors aswel. We should have hope. We should," I said smiling.

A hint of embarrassment was on his face. He slid up and looked at his sleeve and put it up to his face to wipe his eyes.

"Don't!" I said pushing his sleeve back down and using my cleaner dust free one to wipe his crystal clear blue eyes. I leant over him to wipe them. He looked at me while I was doing it. Our faces where only inches away. Realising the connection I pulled away nearly immediately.

He cleared his throat and looked at the floor. His face was like nothing I had seen before. He was like a movie star with a perfect complexion and beaming blue eyes.

"Well my name is Andrew Doyle, and Im 24," he said.

The End
