I slept terribly; I was too worried about Denal. As I woke up I could feel that Denal was no longer next to me. I chuckled and pushed myself to my feet. Denal was sitting on the porche with the woman we had I had met yesterday. Funny I still didn't know her name. It was still dark outside.

"Hi Rex,I thought you were never gonna wake up." I hugged him tightly, running my fingers down his spine. He tensed slightly. As I let go he pointed up towards a set of stars in the sky.

The lady cleared her throat. "I'm ShaQuincy." "rex" I said looking up at her,"thank you for helping us." I looked up to where denal had been pointing. She spoke again," the red star is the planet venus. Feel free to stay as long as you want i've got plenty of room,and it does get lonely sometimes."

I looked to Denal then back at her. "We'll stay for a while."

We stayed out til the sun rose. Then we got up to have some breakfast which I was grateful for because I was starving. After that I laid back down and slept for a couple of hours. As I woke again Denal was laying next to me looking through a picture book. I was looking through my backpack making sure everything was there. After I checked thoroughly, twice, i realized what was missing.

I felt my blood begin to boil.

"Denal!" He sat up from his book. "Where's my crystal?" Denal hung his head before he spoke.

His voice was barely a whisper. "I lost it."

I felt my temper burst and I was yelling. " How could you be so stupid?" " Rex I'm sorry. i really am," He gasped.

"Sorry doesn't cut it. That was everything to me." I shouted.

Tears began to well up in his eyes. " I didn't mean to lose it."

Hate was boiling inside of me I wanted to hurt him. The words came out of my mouth even though I hadn't meant to say them, " I HATE YOU!"

His eyes grew wide. Tears streamed down his cheeks and he pushed himself to his feet and raced away. I stayed where i was, appalled by my action. I had to apologize. I figured I'd let him calm down first. I sat back down on the bed. Moments laters a scream met my ears. I was on my feet and following Shaquitta out of the door in a matter of moments. The sight that met my eye's was horrifying. Denal lay on the ground bleeding heavily. I knelt at his side sobbing. It was my fault. If I hadn't yelled at him, said those words he wouldn't be laying here hurt. I was aware that Shaquittta had left my side. Probably to call for help.

I wished I could go back in time and erase what I said. I wanted to punish myself. When I am sure that Denal was alright, I'm going to sit in a corner. Sit there and ground myself until I figured out how to apologize to him and find out who would want to kill him. One person had pushed into the back of my head: Weasel. That policeman had it out for us. He can't have found us. I had to make sure Denal was safe from that man. I promised myself that from this day forward I would never let anything happen to him. He was all I had.

I hardly heard the loud sirens from the ambulance or the two strong hands that pulled me to my feet. The next thing I knew I was sobbing my heart out. I wished it had been me who had been shot and not Denal. He was so young. My feet would not hold me up. I was pushed, more like half-dragged and half-carried, into the back of the ambulance. My heart was racing and my breathing became labored. Then everything went black.

I woke up, but my eyes would not budge. It took a while for me to make sense of my surroundings. I was in a hospital room. The taletell sounds of machinery told me that. I remembered from when Momma was sick once. I finally convinced my eyes to open. After a while I realized that I was on oxygen. I must have had an asmuth attack. I blinked a few times to clear up my eyesight.

" Rex! You're okay!" ShaQuincy was sitting next to my bed side, but she stood up as soon as she realized I was awake. " You gave me a pretty big scare, Rex. Doctor said you'd had an asmuth attack."

I appreciated her concern, but I needed to know if Denal was alright. " Denal?" My voice was weak. A result of an asmuth attack. There was not too much oxygen to speak because I needed it for my body. If the oxygen had been delayed any longer, I would have had a stroke.

" He's alright now. Don't worry. Get some rest." She whispered gently. I was too tired to argue. I slipped into a light dreamless sleep.

Me: Read/ Review. I feel sorry for subjecting them to this type of cruelty but it's a nessity.

Quay: Poor little guy. Send him a 'get well' letter!
