Don't Leave

I stood gingerly by the curtain. I had followed Tyler’s dad in, but was just a tiny bit afriad of him. He seemed angry and I didn’t want to get in his way.

“A freind of yours stopped by.” His father announced with a deep sigh and moved out of my way.

“Hey…” I said, taking his hand in mine. “How ya feeling?”

Electricity passed between us through our intertwined fingers. I vaguely noticed a look of shook on Tyler’s Dad’s face.

“I’m fine, really don’t worry Rose.” His smile faultered as he took a painful breath.

I squeezed his hand just a little bit tighter as I felt his pain shoot through me.

“Oh Tyler… I saw what happened on T.V.” I told him brushing his disheveled hair out of his face. “I was so worried about you…”

“Rose…” Tyler said, his face twisting in pain.

“Don’t talk if it hurts.” I whispered.

“Don’t leave…” Tyler whispered back, locking his eyes with mine.

“I won’t leave you, ever.” I saw his dad glaring at me but I couldn’t care. I was never leavng Tyler alone.
