So here it is, the very last chapter to this fic! Thank you all for reading, I hope you enjoyed the ride! LOL. I love writing JTHM fanfics, I love this.
The city below me looked awfully busy, even at late hours of the night. I turned my head back to the hill and looked over at my bike that I had tossed over into a patch of grass. It was such a struggle riding my bike all the way up the hill, I'm amazed I did it, but now I was out of breath and tired.
From below, there was suddenly a lot more noise. A couple screams, and tires screeching, which I could've assumed meant there was an accident. I sighed and looked back down to the city. But I couldn't see anything that far down. Just the city lights and buildings.
I stood up and walked over to the creaky wooden fence right off the edge of the cliff. It looked like it could break at any time, I felt a little nervous. But when I looked back down to the bustling city, I knew nothing could make me more nervous than I've been in the past. Carefully and slowly, I stepped up onto the wooden panel. Now I was hovering over the whole city, no ledge to constrict me from falling, no one to stop me.
So there I stood for the longest time, keeping my grip firm but steady, and just watching over the city. I wasn't exactly sure what I was doing or what I was going to do when I was done. Suddenly, the hill shook slightly, and a bright light was blindingly growing closer up the pathway. I clutched onto the wood for dear life, not sure whether I should be more scared of who was coming up, or the wood breaking in my grip. Up the hill came a worn down car with only one headlight. The car came to an abrupt stop, skidding slightly, and out popped Nny from the car door without waiting for the car to stop. My heart was racing so hard in my chest, it began to hurt. I felt a bit shakey up on the ledge.
"SQUEE, WHAT THE HELL!?" Yelled Nny. He was obviously tired too. His skin was covered in sweat and he was panting hard as he ran over to me. I was just so confused and angry..I didn't even notice...
I didn't notice my hands slip off the edge.
The sensation of falling only lasted for a second, but it was the most terrifying second. Nny sprung forward and grabbed me, pulling me away from the cliff and tossing me to the ground. My back slammed onto the ground and I felt the pain spread up my spine. I winced and yelped, seeing Nny's angry glare directed at me. God knows what the murderous man could've done to me then. He could've hurt me more than just throwing me on the ground. I felt tears build up in my eyes. The mental and pyschical pain was too much.
"Don't you dare do that! Not after what I just went through to get to you! What were you thinking?!" Nny asked. I was horrified. Frantically, I got up and made a run for it. I didn't even think to get my bike at that point, which would've ended awful because the hill was so steep. The older man threw himself at me, pushing me back down onto the grass. He kept himself over me to ensure I wouldn't run again.
Panic finally kicked in as I began to thrash and kick and squirm wildly like an animal caught in a trap under the man's grip. He pinned my legs down and held tightly onto my arms.
"Stop! L-Let me go!" I screamed as loud as I could. Tears were pouring from my eyes quickly, each bit of struggle forced more out from behind my eyes.
"Squee, calm the fuck down! Stop squirming!" Nny demanded. He had a lot of experience handling people trying to get away, so I knew I had no chance. "I'm not trying to hurt you, fucker, just calm down!" His voice was just as loud as mine was by then. I stopped screaming, but kept thrashing around. The pain from before was almost unbearable by now and it had spread throughout my whole body. That make the struggle 100 times worse.
Finally, I gave in. I couldn't put up a fight in the state I was in, and now I was crying from pain instead of fear. Nny loosened his grip on me and his expression softened just slightly. "See? Told you I wasn't gonna hurt you, you need to LISTEN. Now are you done throwing a little tantrum!?"
I nodded and took in a quivering breath. He didn't get off of me though. His weight hurt.
"What are you doing out here?" He asked. I coughed quietly.
"I-I don't know- I-I just-" My voice was too strained and choked through tears. He raised an eyebrow, not letting up on the extra-weight he was putting on me.
"I-I can't do this, N-Nny! I don't w-wanna stay here, you left too so y-you shouldn't stop me!" I coughed again. This one hurt my throat badly. Nny sat up a bit, taking the pressure off my arms, and thought for a moment.
"That's different." he replied. "I'm a lot older and live on my own."
"W-Well I might as WELL live on my own." I croaked. "W-Who cares!?"
My eyes widened, and I froze up. We both just stared at each other for a little while, he was almost confused that I was confused. "W-W-Why?" I asked.
"I've been asking myself that for a while now." Finally, he got off of me, and dusted the dirt and grime off of his black clothing. "And I think I finally have my answer...look at me, Squeegee. REALLY look at me. I grew up absolutely alone, and I know you don't want to be this way." For one moment, I felt all the pain just go away while I thought really hard. Thought about the future, what I could become, who I could turn into. I didn't like to think about it. I wiped the tears from my eyes.
"W-What's the point? I-I'm still a-alone. All alone." I said. Now, I couldn't get up. All I did was lie on the dirty ground, letting the pain engulf me, looking up at the stars as grime got into my new scratches and tears made my face soaking wet.
"I'll have you know I'm not planning on leaving again, and as long as I'm here you won't be alone. Hell, I wouldn't leave you alone when you were 8, I won't start now."
I felt a bitter smile creep onto my face as I wiped off a couple more tears. Again, my heart was pounding in my chest like a giant drum. Joy, fear, nervousness, everything I could possibley be. How should I have reacted? I mean..I've never felt so wanted before.
So then he helped me up, chuckled and pulled bits of grass and twigs off me, then lead me to his car to drive back to the neighborhood. I groaned every few minutes or so and couldn't get comfortable, especially when the passanger's seat had no seatbelt. We pulled up to our street and I took a quick glance at my house. "I-I-" Speaking was hard now. "I- Don't wanna go back there,"
"Then where do you wanna go?" He asked. I shrugged. Nny took a look at me. "Well I mean you could sleep over...I'm sure I have a bed somewhere..."
I grinned again. But this time my eyelids drooped from extreme exhaustion and pain. I was drifting into a deep sleep so suddenly. But right before I comepletely went off, I attempted to squeak out, in a small voice.
"Heh...you're the best...Nny.."
That's the end! Hooray! Please leave reviews tellin me if you like it :) I'm kinda running out of inspiration for these fics too, but I always get random ideas. Have a good day~
