Sadly this is the last chapter of the story, don't worry there will be a sequel. I won't say much about it till the end. I really hope it doesn't suck though!
Note: The sequel and this story is like one big story all together. This will end in a cliffhanger and the sequel will just be like another chapter. It's just a bit different. Ok just ignore that is makes like no sense lol.
"T-T-Todd! What the hell are you doing?" I asked.
"If I can't have you, neither can he." He smiled evilly. He pulled out a gun and aimed it at Dally.
"Are you ok?" Dally asked. I didn't reply.
"Maybe we should do this another time. I'm… a bit tired." I said, beginning to feel nauseous. Dally nodded his head and walked me to the door and kissed me goodbye.
When Dally closed the door, I leaned on the wall and sighed. I closed my eyes for a moment and left Buck's. I walked slowly home till I heard the faint sound of rustling leaves. I stopped.
"Who's there?" I asked.
The rustling started again.
"Come out now." I commanded reaching to my back pocket where my knife was. A figure walked out of the bushes.
"Oh, hi Todd. What where you doing in there?" I asked.
"What were you doing at Buck's?" He asked.
"That's none of your business and plus, I asked you first."
"Gail, I really think… I think we should get back together. We were great together, and I'm sorry."
"Sorry Todd, you've lost me. You got a chance and ya blew it. I'm with Dally now." I said coolly
"Dallas Winston?" Todd said.
"Yeah." I said and walked away.
"Todd put the gun down." I said, pleadingly.
"No. You lost your chance with me and a chance to keep Dallas alive." He waved the gun around madly as he spoke. Todd hit his car and laughed like it was the funniest thing on earth. An empty beer bottle fell out of his car. He was drunk.
"Your drunk." I said. That explained why Todd acted different these days. He was an alcoholic.
"Thanks for stating the obvious sweetheart." Todd laughed and accidentally set off a bullet into the night's sky.
"Now let me do the job I've come here to do." He aimed the gun back at Dally.
Todd was about to pull the trigger when both Sodapop and Jenny came out of nowhere and tackled him.
The gun went off.
My hands flew to my stomach and I dropped to the ground. My head hit the ground hard and I went out like a light.
When Soda and Jenny tackled Todd the gun went off. I looked around to see where it hit till I noticed Gail fall to the ground. Her stomach was covered in blood. Her eye's where closed. Blood trickled down her face.
I instantly dropped to my knees. "Gail, sweetie, wake up. Please wake up." I begged. I checked for a pulse. It was weak.
"Jenny call 911!" Jenny looked over to me and ran to find a phone. I held Gail's hand and wished she would come back.
My eyes traveled to where Soda was. Him and Todd where fighting hard. Though Soda was a good fighter, Todd was huge. Soda must have felt me watching him because he looked over here. His eyes widened at the sight of Gail. Soda let his guard down for a second and Todd hit Soda good. Soda staggered back and Todd punched him again. Soda was now on his knees.
"I'm sorry Gail." I whispered and ran over to help Soda.
I came behind Todd and tapped his shoulder. "Guess who?" I said.
"Huh?" He said as he was turning around.
"Me." I said punching him. Todd fell to the ground. I pulled him up by his shirt and punched him hard three times.
"That was for Gail." I said. "And this? This is for me." I said punching him harder four times. I dragged him up and pinned him to his car.
"Because of you, Gail is unconscious." I bashed his head against the window. Glass shattered everywhere. I repeated that same motion over and over.
"Dal, stop, don't kill him!" Soda said.
"Why the hell not?" I snarled.
"Cause the fuzz is coming." Jenny said. The sound of sirens filled my ears.
I paced back and forth in the hospital waiting to know if Gail would be okay.
"Jenny calm down, Gail will be fine." Soda said.
I sighed and sat down next to him with my head on his shoulder. "I hope so."
I looked over to Dally. His head was in his hands staring at the floor. The sound of numerous feet on the floor averted my attention.
"Darry!" Soda yelled, standing up.
"Ah!" I said falling over.
"Sorry babe." Soda said sheepishly. I punched him in the stomach playfully.
"So what happened?" Darry asked. Soda began to fill the gang in about Todd and Dally's rage. I looked at the grim faces of each of the gang. I noticed Steve and Shae holding hands. Mission accomplished I thought my lips curved upward a bit.
"Ahem." The doctor interrupted. Dally shot up and walked over.
"Would you like the good news or bad news first?" The doctor asked.
"Well, we got the bullet out of her, but unfortunately, we lost the baby." The doctor said. Dally closed his eyes for a moment.
"For the bad news-"
"That wasn't it?" I asked.
"No, I'm sorry, but Gail hit her head hard on the ground. She's in a coma."
My mouth dropped as well as everyone else's. "Doctor, how long will she stay-" Darry began.
"We don't know. It could be a couple days, or weeks, or months, or even years." He said.
I dropped my head to hide the tears. Soda cradled me as they began to fall.
"You may go see her if you would like to." The doctor said.
I went in first. "Gail. You gotta come back to us." I said. "None of us can take it." I told her quietly, looking at her pale face and dark brown hair. I stayed there for a couple minutes waiting for a respond, any respond. There was none. I exited out the door and sank to my knees crying. After each of the gang members said something to her, we left. Tearstains were on Shae and my face while everyone else kept quite. Dally's hands where red from punching various things.
Day after day we moved on with our lives slowly. We visit Gail everyday, Dally more than others. Gail never made an improvement yet. Though we promised to never give up on her, we started to lose all signs of hope, except Dally. Gail was the one who Dally loved more than anything right now, and it wasn't about to change.
Jeez! That was the worst ending ever! It'd official, I can't end stories to save my life! Well guys, that was the last chapter! It sucked but oh well! As I said before, this story and the sequel is like one big story.
BTW, here's a SMALL preview of what's to come or something similar to this:
"Well, Johnny's all better now, he's out of the cast. Though, he's getting real nervous about the trial coming up." I told Gail's sleeping form. I sighed and just stared at her, holding her hand. I closed my eyes for a rest until SMACK!
"Ow! WHAT THE FUCK?" I yelled, scrambling up. I looked around the room for anyone. But all I saw was a pair of blue eyes. Gail's blue eyes.
"Gail, your up!" I shouted happily.
"Who the hell are you?" She asked.
I stared at her. "What do you mean?"
"I mean, who the hell are you?" She said slowly.
I gaped. She didn't know me, she didn't even know her own boyfriend. I was hurt deep down, but I was determined not to let it show.
Ok there's the preview! Review!
P.S. This is the longest chapter ever!
P.S. Crap I forgot what else I was gonna say…
