Summary: Alex's sister is sick. Vert must return home. Disclaimer I don't own any characters except Lexa.
"Vert , it's Alex. You need to come home. It's Lexa …"
"What is going on Alex? What happened?"
"They don't think she'll make it…." A choked sob could be heard on the other end of the phone. Silent tears slipped from Vert's eyes," I'll be home soon."
Vert turned and hung up his cell phone, He didn't say anything for a long while, and neither did anyone else.
"Lexa, Alex's sister has been sick all her live. She's fifteen and all Alex wants is for her to see her sixteenth birthday, because fifteen years even sixteen, just isn't enough!" said Vert to Dr. Tezla." Her birthday is nine months away, they don't think she'll make it, and Alex needs me there for support, the three of us grow up together" doctor Tezla, "I have to go!" Finished Vert.
Everyone had listen to what Vert had said now they were planning, because this "Lexa" Seemed important.
"Alright Vert you can go, however, everyone else will be going as well." stated Tezla.
"Sweet, when do we leave?" Asked Monkey.
"we leave today, so start packing; we're leave in less than five hours." said an edgy Vert.
Three and a half hours later.
"Alright everyone ready... good we leave now." said Vert who was ready to leave.
TWO DAYS LATER
"Vert, Lexa... Vert I'm sorry, I know you care but please don't let her see you cry or worry about her." said a tired, worn. Depressed Alex.
"I won't" he patted Alex on the shoulder," I won't."
"VERT" came a scream, before something , rather, someone pile drived him into the ground. "Vert you came, you really came, I missed you so much" Her voice was soft and you could hear the tears in it. "Vert I don't want to die, I don't want to go way for ever." Vert sat up and pulled her to him as she sobbed.
He cradled her to his chest "Ssshhh, hush now, little one, Lexa, My Lexa, I won't leave you again, I'm sorry so sorry. "But his words did nothing to sooth the sobbing girl in his arms.
You could tell she was young, Vert had said she was fifteen, but this girl looked to be ten, possible eight or nine. She was small and frail, you could tell by the way Alex took her from Vert; it was like he was a afraid to break her or something.
"She'll sleep for at least two days, so I'll have time to rest, get the house organized, and cook dinner." said Alex who was trying to smile but failing miserable. "Alex, Karma and I will clean the house, and since Kurt and Nolo can cook they'll make dinner. So just go rest, okay." said Lani.
Later after the girls had cleaned the house and dinner was cooked they saw Vert standing in a door way. They walked down the hall to where he was and looked in the room.
Alex lay on the bed with his sister in his arms and a book in his lap." He used to read to her" No one expected him to speak so it startled them.
"When she was little, my mom would take us to see her in the hospital. We'd climb in to her bed and we would take turns reading to her, she'd laugh all the time," whispered Vert " now she just cry's. A year back Alex went to school up north and Lexa got sick with pneumonia and nearly died then. Alex never stopped blaming himself for it, He would die, if she faded away" tears fell from his eye's " it's not fair."
TWO MONTHS LATER
Lexa was in the back yard with Alex. They were running around Playing tag "Come on eveyone, come play." yelled Lexa, "yeah, life is too short to watch from the sideline's!" yelled Alex.
Lani and Karma were the first to go out to play with them. Lexa laughed like we'd never seen her laugh, she was like an angel. Lani and Karma had become really close to Lexa.
Time passed and it became clear that Lexa might not make it, she'd been in the hospital seven times in one month, now they all watched as the nurse's wheeled her in to a private room. They didn't know what happened, she was fine one minute, then she was just gone the next. Alex was on the verge of a mental break down, and Vert wasn't far behind him.
FIVE MONTHS LATER
Seven months after they met Lexa, she had made it past the expected four to six months. If she could hold out to see her sixteenth birthday, it would me a miracle. She's still in the hospital but the doctor's say she had a good chance of pulling through.
Alex and Vert stood in the door way to her room, right now she was in a restless, dreamless, sleep. " you guy's she'll be alright, everything will be alright." said shirako " Don't say that it's alright, because it's not every day I watch my baby sister get sicker and sicker, this isn't how she was supposed to have her birthday!"
"Alex" came a voice that was barley a voice at all. "Alex, please stop fighting, the yelling hurt's my ears." Alex walked into her room and sat on her bed. "I'm sorry little sis."
"you're always sorry, so just quiet saying it already." she laughed it was the first time since she'd been in the hospital. "Big brother, when are mom and dad coming home?"
Alex looked shocked. Didn't she remember that mom and dad died three years ago? "I don't know, little sister I don't know." having answered Alex turned away from her. "Lex how old are you?"
"Well I'll be eleven in," she counted on her figures" five months, why?"
"so your ten now?"
"Yes silly what did you expect me to be nineteen or something?" she questioned.
"Defiantly or something." Alex mumbled.
Lani went to get the doctor; he came and looked at Lexa. "She appears to have amnesia. You'll have to introduce her to the world again and try to help her remember, but it will be slow and it will take time. So I'd suggest taking her home and telling her what all has happened in the last six years." said the doctor.
