“Shout and you die,” He said.

It was Erick!

He shut the door with his free hand.

“I’m just here to talk to you,” He said.

I swayed my elbow back into his chest, losing his grip on me. Before I could run to the door he was already standing in the doorway blocking the way leaving me no other alternative but to run to the kitchen (ten steps away from the door). I opened the drawer and took out the largest sharpest kn!fe I could get then took a pan in my other hand. I scanned the room for my phone but it was nowhere in sight.

“You btch!” He yelled in pain.

“Come closer and I’ll st.ab you,” I said

He laughed, “It’s not like you have the guts to do that.” He said.

I glared at him then throw a knife at him. He managed to duck just in time.

“Relax! Calm down.” He said putting his hands in the air.

I took another kn!fe out of the drawer still glaring at him.

“Get out!” I yelled.

“Please, I’m, just here to talk to you.” He said.

“I said get out!” I yelled again.

“Please just give me a chance to explain, I’m sorry.” He said.

I wanted to believe him, I did. But with all that has happened, I’m not so sure I can trust anyone.

“You just told me that if I shout I’ll die, less than a minute ago,” I said, in a matter of factly tone.

“That’s the only thing that shuts you up.” He said rolling his eyes.

“You can say what you want to say now,” I said. “Or get out,”

“Aren’t you going to offer me a seat.” He said.

“No,” I said. “You can stand. The last time you tried to kill me.”

He exhaled deeply then looked at me as if I had just grown a moustache.

“I have a personality disorder.” He began, “But I’m getting help now. I’ve had it for a while. It was hard for me to admit it to myself.” He said taking deep breaths in between.

“Just out of curiosity, have you killed anyone?” I regretted that question the moment it left my lips.

“No, you would have been the first.” He said.

I clenched onto the knife holding it tighter.

“I’m kidding, that was a joke.” He laughed. “When you left, it broke me. As you already know, I have no one else. Just some orphan kid someone dumped because I wasn’t good enough.” I could hear the sadness in his voice, and the tears that were whelming up in his eyes.

Maybe he was just a good actor.

“I’m just here to apologize. I wanted to make things right between us. You’re the only one I had and I messed it up. I’m sorry.”

I dropped the pan then walked slowly towards him. Maybe it’s because I’m emotionally weak but for a moment it was as if I could feel his pain. I walked towards him then pulled him into a hug still holding the knife in hand. I would smell apples in his hair.

“If you try anything, just know that I have a kn!fe pointed to your chest.” I laughed, so did he.

He must have thought I was joking because he pulled me closer into the hug st@bbing him in the chest.

I’ve always seen people accidentally kill someone in movies but I’ve always thought it was too big a coincidence, until this.

“What did you do,” He said as he fell on his knees in pain.

“I’m sorry I didn’t mean to,” I said. The kn!fe slipped out of my hands nearly st@bbing my leg.

“What should I do, should I call the ambulance,” I said frantically.

“No, take me to the hospital. My car is outside.” He said.

I helped him uplifting half his weight, I’ve had practice lifting men with a drank Michael.

Luckily it was in the late hours of the night so none of my neighbours was awake. He requested I give him a dishcloth to press on worn. We took the elevator to the last floor, luckily they had just fixed it this morning. I helped him into the car. He took off his leather jacket covering the worn to avoid any questions from the security guards.

“Why don’t we just call the ambulance?” I asked.

“If you want to go to the prison for attempted murder, then go ahead” he said. “By the way you look fat” he said, it looked like blood was whelming up in his mouth.

I drove the car as fast as I could. For a moment I felt like I was in fast and furious, driving through red lights. I feel sorry for Erik for the number of speeding tickets he was going to pay, I’m pretty sure the traffic cameras caught me twice.

We were immediately attended to by two nurses after driving in.

“What happened?” One of the nurses asked.

For a moment I was dump folded, I hadn’t thought this through. How do I tell them I accidentally stabbed him?

“We were robbed, by two guys,” Erik said.

“Please relax sir,” The nurse said.

He was now coughing blood.

He looked at me for a moment as i muttered ‘thank you’

“How is he doctor?” I asked.

I have been waiting in the waiting room for several hours and no one had told me anything yet.”

“He’s out of danger, although you might have to write a police report.” He said.

“Can I see him?” I asked.

“Sure, although he is asleep I don’t see any reason why.” He replied with a ‘happy to help’ smile.

He led the way to the room. He walked out of the room immediately after.

“Erik, can you hear me,” I say softly.

He turned his head in my direction. “I thought you would be gone by now.”

“I couldn’t leave you,” I said playing with my fingers.

I placed my hands into his. “I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to,” I whispered.

“It’s okay,” he whispered.

For a moment he stared into my eyes and so did I (because turning away seemed too rude). A year ago I would have told you of all the sudden butterflies I felt in my stomach or how I felt like I was on cloud nine and all that lovey-dovey stuff. But now, I felt nothing besides the awkwardness that was creeping in between us.

I looked away not wanting any more of this emotional torment this was giving me.

“I hope we equal now.” He said (since he tried to kill me). Even in a hospital bed he still tried to be funny, that’s the Erik I once knew. I held onto his hand as I continued to laugh.

Soon a nurse walked in, she looked at us then smiled at us.

“You two look cute together.” She said.

“No,” Erik and I said simultaneously then laughed.

“Congratulations on the baby by the way.” She said before walking out.

“The what now?” Erik said looking at me puzzled.
