It was dark and rainy out. Call the trees hanged over me. The class was wrecked but soft against my face. My whole body hurt. I couldn't hear anything. I looked around and saw the color red below me. I couldn't think. I felt a movement off in the distance. There were coming at me pretty fast. I saw a girl standing next to a tree not far from me. She was gasping for breath with a shock and surprise to look and her face. She had a long, brown, wavy hair, light brown eyes, and a light complexion. She seemed a really small. She started crying and yelling at me. Although I couldn't hear a word she said. She ran up to me and kneeled down in front of me. She took off her jacket and tie to a really tight around my stomach. I looked down at my stomach and realized the red that surrounded me was my own blood. At that time I didn't feel life or death. I didn't know who I was, why I was there, and who this girl was. I just wanted to go to sleep. Once I thought that, I couldn't see anything. I couldn't hear or feel anything. Then everything went black.
I woke up in a hospital room with the girl who saved me, sleeping in a chair next to me, with her head on the end of the bed. I felt scared and confused. I quickly got out of bed, but my clothing back on and hurried out the door. I tried to get out of the building but halfway down the hall, I felt sharp pains in my stomach. A nurse saw me and asked me what's wrong. The girl ran up behind me. "There you are! Where did you go? You're not supposed to walk around yet. Next time wait for me." She grabbed my shoulders and turned me around. "Come on, you need to rest." When I tried to say something, nothing came out. Finally, under my breath I was able to say, " I'm scared," in a quiet whisper. No one seemed to hear me because everyone kept on walking. So I kept quiet the rest of the way. When we got back into the room, I started to feel extremely anxious. My body started heating up and I began to shake really badly. It felt like I needed to scream. I started breathing really hard. I finally lost control and pushed the girl and the nurse off of me. I ran to the corner of the room behind the curtain. I curled myself into a ball and covered my head with my arms. I wanted to leave. I wanted to be outside in the fresh air and out in open. To feel the wind on my face and through my hair. To feel the warmth of the sun on my skin. I wanted to feel free. It was dark here and I was scared. I felt something cold run down my face. I couldn't hold it in any more. I opened my mouth really wide and very loudly I started crying like a little kid.
The nurse and the girl didn't know what to do or what was happening. When they couldn't figure out what was wrong with me, the nurse took the girl out of the room and more nurses came in to see if they can be of assistance. When anyone got too close, I would jump towards them threatening to scratch them but if they grabbed me I would literally bite them as hard as I could. I wanted to be left alone but they weren't stop trying to restrain me. Things got out of hand very quickly and they ended up calling the police to see if they could help. They even tried to stick me with a needle or with a knockout gun. Now I was getting extremely scared. I didn't know what was happening. I tried to think of a different way out and I decided to try the window. So I jumped onto the table, to the bed and jumped straight toward the window. I raised and crossed my arms over my head so when I came in contact with the window, I wouldn't get badly hurt. I broke through the glass, scraping up my arms a bit, when I realized I was on the fourth floor. Strangely enough I didn't freak out. I fell all the way to the ground landing gracefully and safely on all fours. Being glad to be outside, I ran over to the grass in front of me, still on all fours and curled up in the shade of a tree nearby. It felt good to feel the warm sun, the gentle breeze and the open air around me. Feeling calm and at peace, I fell asleep listening to the birds singing in the trees.
Never even realizing it, a tall young man saw me jump out the window, land on the ground and run over to the grass and fall asleep. His facial expression didn't change the whole time but he stood there just looking at me. The police and nurses finally caught up with me and noticed that I was asleep but stopped in front of the man and asked if he was ok. The man nodded and with that, the nurses told the police they can handle it from here and so the police left. The girl who was in the waiting room seeing everyone run outside, finally caught up. She saw the nurses kneeling down around me tending to my wounds, then saw the young man standing on the path in front of me watching them. She walks up to the man and asked who he was. "The names Ryo. This idiot almost landed on me," he said in an aggravated but humorous way. The girl leans up against the wall and joins him. "So... do you know him?"
