My eyes widen in horror.
"What are you talking about?" I ask in a monotone voice.
"O-oh, Honey, I think it's best if we talk about this when you're better." She replied, whiping a tear with her sleeve.
"No, I need to know." I reply in a shaking voice. "She's pretty much, the reason why all this stuff happened."
Mom, exhaled loudly, "You're right, I just...."
"Just what...?" I say raising an eyebrow.
"I just don't know how to say this...I just wished I had better news." She said running a hand through her hair.
"It's okay... I can take it," I whisper, having tears feel my eyes.
"Well, if i remember correctly, you and her always text before bed." She says cupping her chin, thoughtfully. "Am i right?"
I simply nod.
"It so happens that you were the last person to hear from her,"
"She hasn't texted her parents!?" I ask flabbergast, my mom and both knew that wasn't like Lilith.
She nods "No calls, No texts, No anything."
I let out a breath, I realized i've been holding, and pursed my lips. "Please, hand me my phone from my backpack."
My Mom nodded, while unzipping my backpack, and handed me my phone.
I inhaled and exhaled, trying to muster the courage to text Lilith, already foreboting the outcome.
Finally, I manage to text, Hey, are you ok? bc every1 is worried abt U.
I know, pretty pathetic, that that's what I was able to come up with, knowing my best friend could actually be in serious danger.
I layed on my hospital bed for longing to see the speach bubbled moving, but nothing.
I sigh, even know it was what I expected.
"Have you told the police?" I ask breaking the silence.
I guess, I had been pretty quiet for awhile, beacuse i seemed to starle her with my unsudden words.
She cleared her throat and rubbed her temples, "They said it's too early to call it a runaway or abductee."
I looked at the window, hoping to see Lilith driving passed, but still nothing.
Abrutly, my mom stood up, and stretched her both of her legs, and looked at her watch.
" i'm going to go get some coffee, Would you like anything?" She says yawning.
I shake my head, and contuinue to peer out the window.
"Alrighty, then." she replied, making her way slowly towards the door.
"Do You really think Lilith, could've possibly ran away?" I blurt out, averting my eyes away from the window, to gaze at mom.
She stopped in her tracks, clearly stunned by my question.
"I- I honestly don't know, it's seems to me, to be out of character for her." She says putting her hand on the doorknob.
"I just wish I had all the answers." I say, holding back my tears.
"Me too honey." Mom reponds, coming to kiss my fore head before finallly leaving.
I lay, silently on the umconfortable hospital bed.
The silence was almost deafening.
Seconds, became minutes, Minutes became hours, and when I thought I couldn't take the silence any longer, my phone dinged.
I Inhaled sharply, and picked up my phone with shaking hands. It was a number i didn't reconize.
I have all the answers
I let out a yelp, and dropped my phone on the marble floor, shattering it into tiny, tiny pieces, almost microscopic.
