Sunset Lake chapter 8Sunset Lake
The next few days - or was it weeks? - went by in a haze of pain and torture. I cant really remember, because I know, deep inside, I dont want to. I only remember the pain inside my mind. I only remember the feel of the tight leather straps keeping me tied to the hospital bed. I only remember the stiffness in my limbs as they put me into a straitjacket. I only remember the horrified faces of my friends, my family, from behind the glass, looking back at me with terrified pity. Being unconscious was hell, and being conscious was a nightmare.
Kurotoras voice swirled around me constantly. I remember a startling pain in my forehead at all times. Later I asked why they didnt give me morphine. I learned that I they could give me morphine, they might as well just give me my meds. My

Tora? Tora? I heard a voice chirp from above me. There was a bright light blazing in my eyes. The sheets wrapped around by body were stiff and uncomfortable. I put my arm in front of my face and I heard sighs of relief. Youre awake! the voice yelled and I felt warm arms encircle me. I blinked in the harsh light and saw that I was being held by Toby and all my other friends were circled around my bed. They all looked so relieved that it made me smile. I was confused for a moment, how did I get here? They must have seen the confusion for Kame spoke up.
You fainted after we told you about you know and then Toby brought you here to the hospital and then he well he left for a while. Then, after a few hours, you woke up and here we are, she smiled brightly and I smiled back at her. Then my smile faded
Leave me alone.
Youve turned my heart to stone.
You cut me into different sections,
And in my soul was no resurrection.
When I asked you what youve done,
You say I wasnt the only one.
You say Im a mistake.
That I was always a mistake.
Not a conscious decision,
Just a slip of precision.
I was a mistake,
A lapse in judgment, great.
A six month lapse in judgment,
Was that all I was to you?
I got with you after years of pining,
You were so cold, but I wasnt whining.
Until one day, Id had enough,
I told I was going right there in a huff.
That was a mistake!
A lapse in judgment, great!
A six second lapse in judgment!
Was that how I lost you?
And then I was so lost,
Over the dark cliff I was tossed.
I couldnt take it anymore,
I reached out to you once more.
That was a mistake!
A lapse in judgment, great!
You said I was a six month lapse in judgment,
Thats what you said to me.
You said I was a mistake.
I told myself that I wont cry

Okami held me there for awhile longer, until I awoke. My friends were all still around me and I felt embarrassed. I am so sorry, I began, but they all shook their heads.
Were sorry, said Okami. I blinked at her. We should have gotten there earlier. We we didnt know she trailed off with a shake of her head, how could we have known what horrors were beyond that door? she asked softly. I smiled at her knowingly.
Yeah, I agreed, Kurotora can be pretty frightening the first time you see her, I said airily. They looked at me in confusion. I instantly regretted what Id just said.
Tora, Kame told me, confused, there was no one in that room but you, I froze and went rigid in Okamis grip. I started to shake my head. I opened my mouth to object. How could they not have seen her? The room was absolutely crawling with mirrors! But, Okami beat me t

She started at me as a snake does to confiscate its prey. Her face broke into a wicked grin. How do you like what Ive done with the place? she sneered. She was obviously referring to the mirrors dotting the walls. I shivered and backed up a pace. I bit my lip in fright, to keep from screaming. Her sharp teeth chomped down on her lip and it bled profusely. Se was showing me how easily they drew blood. I shivered and inched back more. When was she going to get it over with? She was going to come out of the mirror sometime. She was going to come and get me.
G-get away from me! I screamed at her. She narrowed her eyes at me and smiled more. I put my hands over my heart.
Silly girl, I wont every go away. Your new medicine quiets me some, blocks

It worked. The voice grew quiet within 20 minutes of me taking the medicine. I grew elated at the silence. Everyone notice how up beat I was. Probably because I was skipping and grinning.
"What's up with you?" Caitlin asked, suspicious as ever. I beamed at her.
"I got my meds!" I told her gladly. And everyone was happy.
My happiness, as usual, didn't last. I walked into my room and heard it lock from the outside behind me. I turned around and screamed. I was supposed to take a pill in the morning, at lunch, and before I went to bed. So, as you can see, they wear off fast. I could also take one if the schizo acted up. This was one of those times. There she was. Directly across from me was a full-length mirror. My whole room was covered with mirrors. And I avoided mirrors like the Black Plague. The

The next morning I awoke groggily to the sight of Alex sitting on her bed, leaning against the wall and wedged into the corner, staring at me. Last night I had thought that waking up with her watching me would freak the crap out of me, but somehow I found it comforting, like she was protecting me or something.
"Wrong. The only one who can protect you, protect us is me," I heard her purr somewhere in my consciousness. I snorted and rolled my eyes.
"Psh. You're the only one that can hurt me. She actually has our best interest at heart I think," I ended, wavering. I mean, I had only known her for half a day. Less than that, even.
"You think " she repeated, trailing off with that almost-sigh that I had been hearing lat
If I...If I called to you,
Could you hear me scream?
If I cried for you,
Could you touch my tears?
If I bled for you,
Could you feel my pain?
If I reached for you,
Could you see me?
What are you to me?
What do I follow you for?
Why do I call to you?
Why do I cry for you?
Why do I bleed for you?
Why do I reach for you?
If you called for me,
I'd be there in a second.
If you cried for me,
I'd be there to comfort you.
If you bled for me,
I'd be there to kiss away the pain.
If you reached for me,
I'd be there to pull you back.
What am I to you?
What do you not follow me for?
Why don't you call for me?
Why don't you cry for me?
Why don't you bleed for me?
Why don't you reach for me?
You know that if you did anything,
I'd be there.
And I know that if I do anything,
I'll have to do it alone.
