Chapter 4

___________________________________________________________________________________________________

All of a sudden, the lava started to rise. I ran to the highest part of the rocky floor and screamed again.

"TAJ", I screamed one lat time.

That time I was lucky. Taj came flying by and dropped down by us. I quickly dropped Dixie on the carpet and climbed on. As we flew away from the wreckage of the crash, I cried.

"What have I done"?

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I felt like a dope. It was all my fault. She was only in this situation because I was weak. And stupid. God I was stupid. I shouldn't have come in the first place.

That's what I was telling myself, standing next to Dixie's bed, who was still unconscious from the crash. As I stood there, I took a warm wet rag and cleaned up her wounds she had received, kicking myself for being so naïve and believing this wouldn't happen. How could I have been so degrading? And stupid.

After a few minutes of cleaning I heard the door open but I didn't turn around. I was too ashamed to look anyone in the eye right now.

"How is she", a familiar voice behind me said. The voice belonged to Dixie's little sister, Tiny. She had came it to check if her big sis was awake or not.

"How is she", she asked. I looked at her. I was still too ashamed to speak so I nodded. Tiny looked down on her sister.

"Don't put the blame on yourself, Did", she told me. "It could have happened to anybody. It was just a stoke of bad luck".

Her enthusiasm didn't make me feel any better. And it still didn't change the fact that Dixie almost died. And it was all because of me.

"Everything will be okay. She's alive isn't she? So there's really nothing to worry about. She's gonna wake up and she's gonna be okay", Tiny told me, reassuring her older sisters safety.

I just nodded to her and falsely smiled. She was trying to cheer me up but I knew what I knew and what I knew is I messed up. Big time.

When Tiny left, my buddy, Timber came in, and he looked at me with absolutely nullifying eyes.

"I know something's wrong with you", he told me. "I can see it in your eyes".

I looked at him, wondering 'was I that obvious?'

"W-what do you mean", I asked, pretend like I didn't know what he was talking about.

He looked at me like I had just blew up a building.

"The crash. You didn't do it on purpose and it was a complete accident either. You were distracted. And it has to do with those dreams you've been having", he stated.

I stared at him wide-eyed.

'H-how could he read me like this?'

"Yeah it does", I whispered.

He smiled slightly.

"Well, we have some time before your girl wakes up. Wanna talk about it", Timber volunteered.

I looked at him, unsure.

"It's kind of a long story", I told him.

He smiled.

"I've got time".

I sighed and began my story.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"It was about fifteen years ago, i was on a plane with my papa coming to DK Island. I was curious and looked out the window and saw the island. My papa was listening to some classical music and humming to the melody.

'Papa, look there', I told him. He looked over and looked out my window. He smiled to me.

'Yes. That's DK Island. That's were we moving', he told me.

I laughed.

'I like it already', i beamed.

'Yes and i hope you'll be happy here, even when I'm not here'.

Suddenly, the plane started rocking and the oxygen masks dropped down. I looked around franticly.

'Quick, son. Put on the mask', he yelled.

'But what about you', i screamed.

'Just do it! And hurry'!

I was so scared and did what i was told. Within a matter of seconds, the plane plummeted into the beach below. I was knocked unconscious on impact.

When i came to, i looked around at the destruction. I saw a few dead bodies and a couple of live ones. And among the dead bodies was my papa. I started screaming and panicking, trying to wake my papa.

'Papa', i shouted. 'Please wake up, papa'.

But no matter how much i scream and shook, he would never open his eyes again."

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I had bursted into tears among the ending of my story. Timber looked at me with devastation. He reached over and patted me on the back.

"Hey, man, it'll be okay. That was a long time ago. And it's not like it was you're fault. It was an accident".

"..But..", i whimpered, before being interrupted.

"No matter goes through that thick skull of yours, its not your fault and it never will be".

I looked at him and smiled.

"Thanks, Tim".

He smiled at me and embraced me with a friendly hug.

"Just don't worry about it. This accident and that accident that happened fifteen years ago will never happen again. You can count on it".

"Yeah, you're right", i agreed. "I just gotta get over it. And never worry about it".

"Yep", he agreed.
