Two Roses And A Missing Note
"EMILY!" Cece screamed at the top of her lungs as she rushed over and knelt down beside Emily in tears. Emily wasn't moving, she was barely breathing, and she had blood coming out of her mouth. "SOMEBODY! PLEASE! GET HELP!" Cece screamed as the crowd quickly got out their cell phones and started dialing 911. Cece was always the type to be nervous and jumpy, but never afraid, and right now, believe me, she was very afraid. She was afraid of losing the girl who had fought for her at the restraunt, the girl who she sang with, the first girl she had ever done it with, and the girl she had fallen in love with. She felt terrible and looked out into the road, the car who had ran over Emily was long gone, she couldn't even get the license plate number, everything had just happened so fast, Cece couldn't think.
"Emily, please, I'm sorry I love you, please, don't leave me." Cece gulped, still in tears. Emily head was on her lap and Cece was a mess. "Please." Cece asked. She got the rose from Emily's hands and was now holding onto it for dear life. She heard the police and ambulance sirens ring out, and before Cece knew it people were already placing Emily on the gurney. "Emily!" Cece yelled as Detective Wilden blocked her way from the ambulance. "WHAT THE HELL!?" Cece asked as she was trying to get past Wilden, but he wouldn't let her.
"Were you friends with the victim?" he asked, taking notes on his notepad.
"Yeah! Can I go now I need to be with her!" Cece yelled but Wilden still wouldn't get out of the way.
"I think it would be best if you come down to the station and answer a couple of questions for us." Wilden said.
"WHAT! That's ridiculous, she didn't hurt her, she was here the whole time and it was just a tragic accident!" someone from the crowd yelled.
"We know, we know, it's just procedure." Wilden said as he took the rose from Cece's hands, put it in his suit pocket, and started handcuffing Cece.
"THIS is PROCEDURE?" Cece yelled as Wilden was handcuffing her, she couldn't believe this was actually happening.
"Yes, why, do you have something to hide?" Wilden countered.
"No, I just want to be with her."
"Well the sooner you cooperate, the sooner you can see the victim." Wilden said as he finished handcuffing Cece and put her in the back of his squad car. I can't believe all this just happened, if I hadn't been such an idiot and pressured Emily into saying something she wasn't ready for, she'd probably be with me at my apartment and we would be watching a cute movie and cuddling. Oh my God, Emily. Cece thought this and started crying. The squad car was cold, kind of like the cold night. Cece was shaking, but it wasn't because of the cold, it was because she was facing the possibility that someone she loved could be taken away from her.
Finally, they got to the Rosewood Police Station. Wilden escorted her out of the car and into a dark room. There was a chair that Cece could sit down on, and she did. Wilden released Cece from the handcuffs and took a seat as well.
"You were friends with the victim right?" Wilden asked.
"Yes, I told you that already."
"Were you having a relationship with the victim?"
"That's none of your business."
"Cece, we don't care if you two were sexually involved, we are just asking if-"
"Do I need to call my lawyer, detective?" Cece countered.
"Okay, fine, moving on." Wilden said.
"Okay, do you know anyone at all that could've had anything to gain from having Emily gone?" Wilden asked.
"SHE"S NOT GONE WILDEN SHE"S GOING TO BE OKAY!" Cece yelled, yet she seemed more like she was trying to convince herself more than she was trying to convince officer Wilden.
"That's not what I meant, okay let me rephrase that."
"Do you know anyone who had a grudge against Emily, anyone at all?" When he said that all of the pieces started falling together for Cece. What a coincidence that Paige hadn't showed up for school that day, and that nobody goes fast on that street where Emily got ran over, but the car that did hit her was going pretty fast. Cece was now more than one hundred and ten percent sure who the perpetrator was. Just as she was thinking about how much she wanted to kill Paige, Officer Wilden's walky-talky blared the room.
"Detective Wilden, Paige McCullers and her family have just shown up for questioning in Room 104. Whenever you finish questioning Cece Drake please report to Room 104. I repeat, please report to Room 104. Over."
Before Officer Wilden had any time to take in the words Cece Drake had already bursted out the door, in search of Room 104. The Rosewood Police Station was big, but Cece was so angry she didn't even notice. All she wanted to do was find Paige in Room 104. 101, 102, 103, finally 104. I'm going to kill this bitch. Cece busted in the door where Paige and her father were sitting down waiting for Officer Wilden.
"YOU BITCH! I SHOULD KILL YOU RIGHT HERE!" Cece growled as she took a running start towards Paige and knocked her out of her chair. Paige's father was too shocked to do anything. "HOW COULD YOU? HOW COULD YOU!? Cece yelled as she got on top of Paige and started punching her.
"GET THE F*CK OFF OF ME!" Paige yelled, but Cece shut her up with a punch to the mouth. She would've gone in for another one but she felt herself being lifted off of Paige. It was Officer Wilden.
"CECE! Get off of her!" Wilden yelled.
"I'll have a day in court with you Cece Drake for Disorderly Conduct!" Mr. McCullers yelled helping up his daughter.
"Cece, please leave." Officer Wilden said. "If we need anything we'll just give you a call, here's our card." Wilden said, handing Cece his card and he also took out the rose from his suit pocket and handed it to her. Paige got up and wiped the blood from her mouth, smiling a crooked smile at Cece. Cece wasn't really in the mood to get into another fight so she exited Room 104. She exited the Rosewood Police Station and into the cold, cold night. She was greeted by Spencer, Hanna, and Aria. They all gave her a hug.
"We went to go see Emily at the hospital but they didn't let us in. Her mom's not letting anyone visit her until she gets to the bottom of things." Spencer said.
"This is all my fault!" Cece said in tears.
"No it's not; it's the person who ran her over. We think its Paige, and we're gonna find out." Spencer said.
"Why is there blood on your knuckles?" Aria asked.
"I ran into Paige in there and I just lost it." Cece responded.
"Well, somebody had to do it." Hanna said, trying to lighten the mood, but failed miserably.
"HANNA!" Spencer and Aria yelled.
"WHAT!? If someone didn't do it, I would've had to have done it myself!" Hanna spoke in her defense.
"Anyway, we figured since you don't have your car we could give you a ride to your apartment, we are going to see if we can talk Mrs. Fields into letting us see Emily, in the mean time we suggest you get some sleep. It's been a long night." Aria suggested.
"Thanks, but I think sleep is going to be rather impossible tonight." Cece said as she got into Spencer's car. She was telling the directions to Spencer. It felt like someone had actually ripped out Cece's heart and stomped on it. To her this was all her fault. She loved Emily and she felt so extremely guilty.
The ride to Cece's apartment felt so quick. They got there and Cece and the girls had shared their 'goodbyes.' Cece made her way into her apartment. It was dark and lonely, kind of like the way her life was before Emily, and she started crying. She put the rose on the vase where the first rose Emily had given her was. She laid down on her bed and her thoughts were full on Emily and her. The first time they met, the first time they kissed, the first time they watched a movie together. Cece literally cried herself to sleep that night.
The next morning Cece was not in the mood to get up. She felt lost, broken; she wasn't sure what to do with herself. Every morning she would get up and think about Emily, what she would say to her, what they were going to do together, and now, her thoughts were just on the fact that Emily might possibly not even be there anymore. She would never be able to hold her in her arms anymore, never be able to sing to her again, and never be able to make love to her ever again. Yet, making love was the last thing on Cece's mind right now. She got up and sat in the chair that she and Emily had had breakfast on yesterday. To think that was only twenty four hours ago, it feels like ages. Cece thought. Her eyes were swollen from all the crying last night. She just sat there. She didn't turn on the TV, start making coffee, turn up the radio, take a shower, or even brushed her teeth, she just sat there, looking at the two roses that Emily had gave her. On one of the roses she saw a pink paper sticking out. She never had seen that before. She grabbed the rose, moved it to where she could see it, took out the note, and picked up the pink paper. It was a note. She opened it and read it.
So its study period and I don't know how I could have this class because I just took all the tests! What a waste of a class right! But it gives me the perfectly good opportunity to write you this. I'm not really good at expressing my feelings out loud and never had been. But right now, I'm writing this note and I hope this explains everything you're probably wondering right now. Cece, last night was amazing. I can't even put that in words, out loud or in a note, but I've never felt so happy in my life, and it's a great feeling. Cece, I want you to be my girlfriend. I want you to be mine, because, because I love you. Yeah I know I may not have known you for that long, but love doesn't have a label. Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud or rude. It is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, and it keeps no record of wrongs. You've had all the patience in the world for me, and you accept me, right or wrong, no matter what I've been through. I know you'll always be there. And I just want to thank you for that. I can't wait to see your face when you read this. I miss you so much and I love you. Promise to love me forever, because I can promise you that right now. See you tonight beautiful.
Cece was speechless. The tears were coming out in buckets by now. She felt so extremely guilty, and then she remembers, the second rose! It was the one Emily had been trying to give to Cece last night before she got ran over. Cece stood up and got the other rose from the vase, it also had a pink note in there. It said the exact same thing, but at the very bottom it said.
Now this is just in case you didn't find the first note in the first rose. I love you Cece, and I just hope you love me back.
Cece couldn't stop crying now. Oh my God, Emily does love me, and I was just being so unreasonable that I didn't see it. Oh my God, Emily could die or be permanently injured for the rest of her life, all because of me. Cece just held the two roses and sat on the ground. I don't even deserve to be sitting on a chair right now. I don' even deserve to be breathing! Tears were flowing through her eyes, and she couldn't stop them. Emily did love her, and she was just too paranoid to realize it.
NOOOO! I know! What a shocker. Awww, how sad was this? Man, well no worries I'll see what kind of ideas I can cook up for the next chapter. Oh and shout out goes out to Buttercup XD XD, for being the most Paige Hating Fangirl I've ever seen! Hahaa! ;)
