I lay in my new, surprisingly comfortable bed. I have the top bunk and Winter is on the bottom. But I can't go to sleep.
I replay the awful events of today in my head. First, I woke up in a van and was kidnapped by a crazy old lady. Then I had to come into this crazy clean, too-organized place and act like it's home.
And then, after I got a shower, I walked out to witness Spring sitting on the floor with blood gushing out of her leg.
Out of all the awful things that have gone wrong today, the worst part was the end of the day.
When I got out of the shower, I walked out to the main room, and it was a disaster.
Apparently, while I had been taking my sweet time in the shower, some shit went down....
*6 Hours Ago*
I was in Autumn and Spring's room helping Autumn do a puzzle. Meanwhile, Summer was in the shower and Spring was out in the main room dancing to WAP by Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion.
All of a sudden Autumn and I here a muffled scream coming from the main room, followed by a crash and the slamming of the cellar door.
We stare at each other for a second and without hesitation, we run out to see what is wrong. Spring is on the floor of the main room....
In her leg is a knife stab wound and she is clutching her leg.
Rushing over to her, I look at the stab wound and yell to Autumn to go get something to wrap around Spring's injured leg, which is gushing blood everywhere.
I take Spring's hand in mine and look into her eyes. She looks hopeless. Softly, I whisper, "What happened, love?"
She just gently shakes her head as if she is not allowed to tell me. I look at her with loving eyes. I love Spring. She is the love of my life.
Sitting here watching her bleed out is agony to my heart and soul. Suddenly Autumn appears in front of me with towels. Hurriedly, but gently she wraps them around Spring's leg.
I hear Summer walking down the hall and look back to see her horrified face. I yell at her to go get the first aid kit and she spins around and runs toward our room. But time is running out!
"Hurry!" I call to her. "Bonnie will be very upset if Spring dies!" I knew Bonnie had taken very long to find Spring, for it is an uncommon name. And I had seen Bonnie angry before, and I never wanted to see it again. But that is a story for another day. For right now, I was too worried about Spring....
I look under the sink and find the first aid kit. Running back out to Spring, I am worried. She is bleeding everywhere!
I rush over to Winter and shove the first aid kit into her arms. She opens it and pulls out the tourniquet, tying it around Spring's leg.
I watch them, not knowing what to do. I do not know Spring, but I hope she is okay. The stab wound in her leg is gushing blood, but it slows down after the tourniquet is put on.
I watch Winter. I can tell she has much love for Spring. Her eyes are filled with love. But I don't know if it is a friendly love or something more....
I'm laying in bed, thinking about the awful events of today.
Why would Bonnie stab Spring? Will she be ok? Will I be ok? And what was that look in Winter's eye?
When we all went to bed Spring was still bleeding, so we all decided to sleep in the same room so we can watch over her. At the moment, Spring is laying on a mattress on the floor, alongside Autumn. They are both asleep, but I can here the silent cries from Winter. And the horrible moans of Spring.
And I know I will not get any sleep tonight, for I am too on edge...
To be continued.....
