This chapter is short. I'm sorry, guys.
Chapter 12: To expect the unexpected
An hour earlier
I drove down to Tyler’s apartment in full rage. Tyler started this. All of it. The one girl I ever felt the most for and he just had to come in and ruin it all.
I thought Karlie was different.
I felt that she was different.
But I was wrong. Dead wrong. She’s just like all the others.
I drove and parked diagonally into the parking lot. I got out of the car and threw out the empty bottle of vodka. Then I went and opened my trunk and got out my silver steel baseball bat. This is going to show that motherfucker to fuck with me and my girl.
I walked around and went up to the door and banged on it.
The door opened and as soon s it did, I swung the bat at Tyler and he ducked. “The fuck are you doing, Ellis?”
“You fucked Karlie!” I said as I swung the bat again and he ducked. Damnit.
Tyler hesitated as he backed up. “I love her.” He said. Then he shrugged. “I’m sorry.”
“I loved her too, you fucking prick!” I swung again and he grabbed it in just the perfect time. I tried to yank it back but he punched me right in my jaw and it sent me falling back. He threw the bat behind him, knocking over a glass bookshelf. But he kept his eyes on me.
“Ellis, I’m sorry.”
“She was the only one. You knew that, Tyler! Why’d you have to fuck it up?”
Tyler shook his head. “I’m sorry, Ellis.”
“Sorry? She said the same thing. The both of you are going to be fucking sorry.”
“No. You took the only thing I loved in my life now I’m gonna take yours.” I walked over, grabbed the bat and started destroying everything in his house. He tried to stop me, but I was going crazy with the bat.
And I let out my anger. Because he fucking deserved it. He deserved it all.
“Ellis!” He tried to take the bat but I swung at him again and he got back. “Fuck this.” He said, grabbed a set of keys from off the table and left out the door. But I followed him. He power walked to his car and I followed him and started busting out his windows.
“Ellis, leave me the fuck alone!” He yelled, louder than I ever heard him yell before.
He started his car up and drove off. Oh hell no. He’s not getting off that easy. I got into my car, it roared to life and I went after him.
I beeped the horn as I chased him in my car and he sped up his car.
I beeped for a while and tried to get in front of him so he can slow down. Come on, motherfucker. Face me like a fucking man.
But he just kept speeding up. Whey the hell is he running like a little bitch? He was supposed to be the tough brother.
As both of our cars both pulled onto a bridge, he began to slow down. What for?
Then he let me pass, I looked back at him as my car passed his and I saw he was doing a U-turn. That bastard.
I quickly did one as fast as I could and did one faster than him. Then I rammed my car into his, His broke throught the concrete of the bridge and fell down, and mine…slowly followed.
Melissa shot me up to the hospital as fast as she could but we were forced to wait in the waiting room since we weren’t family. Tears pooled down my face and I could feel my chest feel like it was about to shut down.
I buried my head in my hands and cried. I just let go. I loved them both and now they were hurt…badly.
Every moment I spent with Ellis, I don’t even know if it was real love now.
I loved him…as a person. But he was not the person I fell for.
I fell for Tyler the momet I saw him. I just didn’t know this. I let Ellis come in my life and help fix the broken part of me. And he did….or at least he started, but Tyler finished.
And now he felt like he was apart of me. A part I can never let go of.
A man with graying hair and a white doctor’s coat came in and he didn’t look happy. Melissa helped me up.
I looked up at him.
He let out a sigh. “Are you the girlfriend?” He asked me.
“Kind of.” Melissa answered for me.
The doctor nodded. “I apologize, miss but….neither brother made it.”
My eyes widened in shock.
WHAT THE FUCK DID HE JUST SAY?
This crashing feeling plopped down on me. No. He was lying. He was playing a trick. He had to have been. There was no way Tyler and Ellis were both dead. No fucking way. He was lying. He was fucking lying.
I broke down in tears. “What?” I squeaked. I dropped to my knees as the tears fell onto the white tile floor.
“I’m sorry.” I heard him say again and he walked away.
I’m sorry. After everything I put these two through and now their both gone.
I had no one. I didn’t even have the chance to tell Tyler I loved him.
I could have sworn I just talked to him a day ago and Ellis an hour ago and now here I am, more than aware of their death.
Natalie will be devastated. Beyond devastated.
Melissa held me in her arms and rocked me as she cried with me.
I wanted to be left alone. Completely alone.
I felt like my whole world has just been swallowed up.
Swallowed up whole.
And the man I love was not coming back.
