~Chapter 4 (pt. 2)~
The next day I woke up in a strange place. It was like a Hotel room. There was 2 twin sized beds, a dresser, a bathroom, a mirror, and a T.V. It was very clean and nice.
“Where am I?” I asked confusedly.
“Well I don’t think we’re in Kansas anymore.” Said Jenny. “You’re in rehab, Ally. This place is for all addicts who are teens.”
“What? What happened? All I remember was watching Napoleon Dynamite with Luke.” I said nervously.
“I’ll let him tell you.” Jenny said as Luke pulled up a chair.
“Okay. Well, you went to the bathroom and I was waiting for you to come back so I could play the movie, but it felt like you were taking forever. I decided to see if you were alright so I knocked on the bathroom door. No answer. I slowly opened the door and found you lying on the floor and some type of drug on the counter that looked like cocaine or something. I was petrified! I decided to call Jenny, since you guys are best friends. She quickly came over and was also shocked. We put you in her car and drove here. I was crying on the way up, while Jenny told me about everything. Our song, Angel by Aerosmith, yes, I remembered it, came on. We arrived about an hour ago, but Dr. Stanford, a doctor here, said that you were alright because he did some test and the pills you were taking were sleeping pills. You were just sleeping. He let you sleep. But hun, I jus-“
I was crying. Sobbing, actually.
“Why are you crying?” Luke asked while he gently kissed my forehead.
“I-I’m sorry! I lied to you! Yes, there is something wrong! I do drugs! But you don’t know why!” I shouted sobbing some more.
“You said you were bullie-“
“No! I wasn’t!” I said cutting Jenny off. “My father… He was abusive! I have a lot of scars! One night last year he almost killed my mom. I called the police! They came just in time. I saved my mom’s life. You don’t even want to know what he was like when my mom was at work, trying to support us! He was drunk. Always sleeping on the couch. When he woke up, he either had me get him a beer, or any type of drug! I didn’t even know what most of them were half of the time! When I saved my mom, that was the last time I ever saw my dad. He left one thing in my house though… The pills.” I was crying too much now They know my secrets now.
Jenny came and hugged me. “I’m so sorry!” She said trying to hold back tears.
“It’s okay! I am too! Luke. I love you! I always will. I’m sorry for lying. I just didn’t know if you would still love me the way I love you.” I said kissing him. “Does any of you know where my mom is?” I asked.
“Yeah. She’s at the hospital across town, your cousin had to get stiches, and his mom can’t stay with him so your mom is. She’ll be here tomorrow..” Jenny replied.
“Oh. Then what’s that?” I asked pointing to three duffle bags on the floor.
“Oh well one bag has my stuff in it and the other has Luke’s, and the third has your stuff. You’re staying here until you’re better.. On Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays I’ll be here with you. Luke will be with you on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Sundays.”
“Oh! Cool! SO I’m alone on Fridays?” I said jokingly.
“Yeah.. We’ll get tired of you.” Said Jenny. “I’m just joking. On Fridays You’ll talk to Dr. Gibson and there will be activities for the teens to do.”
“Oh.. Cool!” I said.
“Well it’s kinda late.” Said Luke. “I’ll get going. Bye, Ally.” He said kissing my hand. “Bye Jenny.” He said while walking out.
“Hey! I’m gonna get changed. Then I’m going to bed. It’s almost 1:30 AM! Goodnight!” Jenny said.
“Goodnight.” I said as I got comfortable.
Whoa! Yup! Ally’s in rehab. She’s there to get help! She has 2 “roommates” to keep her company, but will the help keep her sane? I just wanna say that you readers are awesome!
