Chances - Part 11

Sorry I haven't written in a while! Please 8 comments for next chapter!!
Blake's POV

I hate seeing Andrea like this. She hasn't said much in the past two weeks. Straight for school, I come over to take care of her and her mom. They are both devastated by what happened. Andrea keeps saying, it's her fault when in reality it's not. Tomorrow Andrea goes back to school and by the looks of it, she really doesn't want to go back. I'm really worried about her but I'm honestly doing the best I can. I get out of my car to stop and walk towards her front door. I get the key under the plant outside and put the key in. As I reach for the doorknob, Mr. Flores comes out. He has a suitcase in hand and tears flowing down his cheeks.

"Hi Mr. Flores, good morning."
"Hello Blake." He walks right past me. He's never really liked me. I turn around and watch as he got in his bright red Porsche and drive away. I walk inside and go straight to Andrea's room. I walk in and she's sitting at her desk, on her laptop. She's writing away and looks back at me. I'm leaning against her door frame and smile up at her. She runs toward me with open arms and hugs me. She starts crying into my gray shirt. I kiss the top of her head and she lets go.

"Hey beautiful."
"Hey." I look at her and she's wearing sweats and a sweatshirt, her flawless hair in a messy bun and her dorky glasses. She never wears those. I want to ask how she is but at this point it's just a stupid question to ask. She sits on her bed and I shut the door and move towards her. I sit next to her an she leans on me.
"I saw your dad.." I look down at her to see her expression.
"Yeah. He came as happy as can be and when I broke the news to him..." She looks down at her fingernails.
"It's okay."
"No it's not. Bray has always been his favorite so he was hurt when I told him."
"Babe, you are just as important to him."
"I wish."

Andrea's POV

These past two weeks have been awful. All I can think about is Brayden. He was my life. Without him, I would just die. No pun intended. He made everything better when things were going bad. I got up from my bed and went towards the door. I open it and lead my way to Brayden's room. I haven't dared to go in there since he passed away. I don't have the guts to go in but for closure, I think this is the best for me. I touch the knob and turn it. I take a deep breath and open the door. I walk in and look at every single detail. On the wall he has his senior picture over his bed. I look at the picture and see him smiling down at me while I hold the 2010 sign. I start to burst into tears. I walk to his bed and sit down.
"Why did you have to go like this. You just left me as if nothing. You are so stupid and selfish."

Blake's POV

I watch Andrea as she walks out of her room towards Brayden's. I want to follow her out but I thought she needs to do this herself. My phone all of a sudden rings and I look down and it says 911 from Nick. I grab all my stuff and race downstairs. I stop at the last step and go back up to say goodbye to Andrea. I give her a kiss on the top of her head and leave. I open the door of my brand new Bugatti and drive. I get to my house and open the gates. I run inside and find my brother on his phone smiling.

"What the fuck is the emergency?!" As I try to gasp for air, Nick is just staring at me.
"This really hot girl texted me and I don't know what to do..." I just stop, stare at him, and start to burst out laughing.
"What did she say?"
"She said hey," I look at him and start to laugh even harder. I sit down next to him.
"I don't know what I would do without you."
"Yeah, I know. How's Andrea holding up?"
"She's getting there."

Andrea's POV

Blake leaves all of a sudden and runs out of my house. I look down at my phone and see 5 messages.
Babe - Sorry I ran out Nick has some sort of emergency. I'll one over later? Love you.
I smile down at the phone and keep looking at the rest of the messages.
Bbt - Hey, how are you?
Bbt - I haven't heard from you in a while.
Bbt - When are you coming back to school?
Bbt - I love you best friend.
It's not that I'm avoiding her I just don't know how to tell her about Brayden. He's the only who knows and I just don't know. Tomorrow, I start school and I don't know what to tell her.
