My shift was over and I wasn't welcome to the staff party so I decided to go home.
I sat on the ground when I heard the doorbell ring. Who is at my apartment at 8:00?
It was Marcus.
"How do you know where I live?! STALKER!!!"
"I didn't want to go to the party if you weren't going and I knew the apartment building you lived in.....and I randomly went up to your door and you answered it."
"Okay........Would you like to come in?"
He walked in. That's when the flashback happened. I collapsed on the ground.
His voice faded.
"Cade please get better.........Your my only family left........"
I was in a hospital room with my older brother cade. He was dying. I could always go to him becuase I was bullied at school. I was 15 and I lived with him. He was 21.
"Alice.......Remember that story I told you when you had the nightmares?"
Tears were going down my face.
"I remember Cade......"
"Coud you tell me the story? It is always better when you tell it Alice....."
The bee story....It was my favorite.
"Once there was a little girl.....and she always dressed in black and yellow.....She claimed her name w-was Bee. And she was always a happy little girl.
"One day B-Bee's freind Leah went up to her and said 'You are always so happy. It's super annoying!' A-and that made Bee sad.
"Bee f-found a bridge and wanted to jump off of it. Everyone had said-d happiness was st-upid. She n-ever listened to them but whe-n Leah said it.......Sh-she snapped.
"Then a little bee flew in front of her and she realized that it didn't matter what others thought. You need to love yourself."
Cade was looking at me with his soft brown eyes.
"Alice.....I want you to remember this......Don't let the tuant's get to you......"
And with those words his eyes slowly closed and he was gone.
"Cade? CADE!? Don't go! CADE=http://!!"
