*I know it's been a while & judging by the tweets I've seen, a few of you have stopped reading. This is just an EXTREMELY SHORT PREVIEW just to see if anyone is still reading lol if I get any responses I'll finish the chapter and post asap. & I have no amount of words that could describe how much I hate this fic either but here goes :/*
"I can't believe this is happening." Her words were spoken through a shaky voice, the tears verging on falling. Safaree hadn't spoken a word since Carol had arrived, he was too afraid. Not of her confronting him but of the possibility that she might believe Safaree did this to her daughter. That he led her astray and encouraged her to do something stupid. Of course he would never, but it did appear suspicious.
Things had only worsened after the first hour in the hospital, Nicki's symptoms began to spiral as the effects of the ecstasy hit her body. First starting small with the teeth grinding and jaw clenching before getting to the point of her being held down by nurses as she convulsed violently. SB couldn't shake the vivid images from his mind. It was after the convulsions finished when her body temperature peaked and the doctor figured out what she'd taken, or been given as SB tried to assure them. The rapid body movements of her fits had aided the drug in increasing her body temperature and she was now at risk of hyperthermia. Currently wrapped in a cooling blanket they waited anxiously by her bedside to see if it worked, their fingers crossed with hope. Both of their eyes were fixed on her tiny frame beneath the blanket, for a few moments it was perfectly silent except for the bleeping of monitors.
"I can't believe I was stupid enough to leave her alone." Finally speaking, Safaree rested his head in his hands helplessly. To his surprise, he felt Carol's hand gently rest on his shoulder.
"You can't blame yourself, we're all as guilty as one another if that's how you think about it." She sniffled lightly. "I shouldn't have let her go out, you shouldn't have left her, she shouldn't have let you leave her. It's all the same thing. It's nobody's fault but these girls you believe did this to her." Her face and voice hardened towards the end of her sentence.
"They're not gettin' away with this. They're supposed to be her friends." Still resting his head in his hands he began to bounce his leg angrily. The longer he was sat staring at Nicki being as vulnerable as she was right now, the more his anger grew.
"I know you're angry, Safaree. I am too, believe me. But now is not the time for anger, we need to be here by Onika's side."
He heard her words but they weren't going in. They'd been sat here for hours now and not one person had called to see how she was. He'd confronted Drake before they even got to the hospital, surely he must have said something to Mia and the girls. Even on top of his worry, anger and guilt he was still replaying her voice in his head over and over and over again. He felt like a heartless dick thinking of it right now with everything that was going on but he couldn't help it. Why would she call him that? Aubrey.
*Like I said, this is miniature but I would rather post a snippet & find out if people will still read than post a full chapter & have nobody read :/*
