I can't believe I've been in the hospital for a month. I just thought I was out for a few days but a month? I wonder what went on while I was out. "Ryan?" I said. "Yes Carissa you need something?" he asked. "It's not that. I just wanted to thank you for saving my life.", I replied, "But what could I do in return?" Ryan smiled and said, " There is one way." He started to lean closer to me and our lips touched and we kissed. After that I sighed. Then my mother came in. "Are you okay honey?" She asked. "Yeah mom I'm fine." Then the nurse walked in. "Mrs Johnson, she should be ready to go home today." She said. In a way I was delighted, but then again in a way I wasn't. I am because I could be with Ryan, the bad part is my brother.
I frowned. "Carissa what's the matter?" Ryan asked. "I want to see A.J." I said. My mother looked at me like I was nuts. "Honey you really want to see him?" My mother asked. "Please mom I want to see him." I pleaded. She sighed and said we would visit him later. I got dressed in fresh clothes and we left the hospital. When My mother was driving me home and I saw someone watching me. "Is something wrong Carissa?" Ryan. "No, nothings wrong." I replied. I just kept staring but I couldn't see his face it was covered. Once we got home I went into my room and then I stopped at the sight of a blood stain on the floor. I put my hand on my gut remembering what happened that day. For most of the day I just lyed in my bed thinking about A.J. Then I kept remembering when he stabbed me and hated him. I hated him then loved him again and hated him some more. I turned over and ended up falling asleep.
I was in a dark room with no lights and I just stood alone; no Ryan, no mom, no A.J. Then all of a sudden I saw The man I caught staring at me as I passed. He strapped me to a chair and then he had a knife and started to stab at me constantly. I woke up screaming my head off and yeling out begging for whoever it was to stop. Ryan and my mom ran into the room. I just continued screaming and saying the same words over and over again. "Carissa calm down your okay, no ones hurting you." Ryan said. I just kept on tossing and turning frantically. Ryan put his arms around me telling me that I was okay. I was really awake this time and crying. "Carissa it's going to be okay no one is hurting you." Ryan said calmly stroking my hair.
