ADAMMy encounter with Julien Belmont wasn't pleasant. Suzie didn't want to piss off the already distraught Julien, so she thought it was a better idea to wait him out, figuring that eventually he would have to go home and rest. Welp, that didn't quite go as planned since the chump looked as though he was planning on moving right in with Emily in the hospital. Freaking kiss-ass!
When Suzie came downstairs and told me that I had five minutes before Julien got back from the restroom, I groaned in annoyance. This was so freaking wrong. I had been with Emily for years. This lame guy just got here, and I was now being forced to sneak around and tip toe around him as if he was some freaking God.
Just get to Emily!
When we got upstairs, Emily laid seemingly asleep. Her frail, small body was bandaged up in various places. The centerpiece, her head, had suffered the most damage. My heart broke at the sight. Thoughts of her laughing and enjoying life flooded my mind as I watched the contrasting void expression on her face.
“They put her in an induced coma to allow her body time to heal. Something about swelling in her head,” Suzie said while fighting a fresh wave of tears.
I stared at my girl, my heart aching, knowing that there wasn't much I could do to help her other than let her know that I was here with her.
“Baby girl, what did I tell you about talking on the phone and driving, huh? I swear you’re trying to kill me. Don’t you know I love you? I’ll always love you, sweet girl.”
“Just what in the hell do you think you’re doing?” I heard from behind me before someone grabbed hold of my uniform work shirt.
Needless to say, Mr. Tall-dark-and-handsome was a pain in my ass! French! Emily was dating a freaking Frenchman. How the hell was I going to compete with that shit!
