Laugh It All Off

we all seem to deal with it

The nurse let Mikey stay with Angharad in the room. Angharad had an ice pack to put on the place where she was bleeding from and once it had stopped the nurse would then look to see how it looked and then deal with it how one would do when it concerns a head injury.

Her and Mikey just sat quietly for some time – the nurse had left the room because she had bits and pieces to do other than looking after any teenager that occupied her room.

“Have you ever hated something so much that even though you know it's wrong, you just had to do something about it?” Angharad broke the silence which made Mikey jump because to be honest, he wasn't expecting her to speak to him.

“Um... no, I can't say I have. Why?” he replied, looking at the girl who was sitting on the bed that wasn't a proper bed. She was looking at her knees seeing as her skirt wasn't covering them.

Sighing, Angharad looked up and at Mikey. “I was just wondering.”


They continued sitting around in silence. The only movement was Angharard's arm every now and again as she repositioned the ice pack on her head. After a while, though, Mikey had to break the silence again because he just felt it was too awkward and he really wanted to ask her the question whilst she was in a nice mood, like now. Or at least, what seemed to be a nice mood.

“Angharad... I know it's none of my business and I know I shouldn't really be asking but... why do you live with Alicia? You don't have to answer because I know it's none of my business, I was just curious and all...” Mikey rambled, slightly worried that he had offended her by asking.

All she did was sigh.

If Angharad was being honest with herself, the reason as to why she was being nice – or at least as nice as she could be – to Mikey was because he was the only one who seemed to want to know about her. Sure, she didn't ask to be put in his locker almost all the time, but he always asked her whether she was okay, tried to help her up from the floor or just wanted to make conversation with her, like what happened at that one lunch time.

“I got kicked out of my house. My mum... we didn't see eye to eye on a certain something and she decided to believe someone else over me. Then she claimed she couldn't live under the same roof as me so I was kicked out,” she told him, a bitterness to her tone that Mikey was certainly shocked at.

“You were kicked out because you and your mum didn't see eye to eye on something?”


“That's pathetic.”

“I know.”

Mikey knew she was a closed off person, didn't like talking to people or letting them in to her life, but she seemed to have no problem right now talking with Mikey. And it wasn't like he would say something about it to her because he liked the fact that she was because it was what he wanted – to get to know her, talking with her.

The nurse came back into the room and checked Angharad's injury before letting her leave with Mikey just before lunch was starting. Just as Mikey was about to slowly head to the canteen, Angharad stopped him by speaking. “Mikey... if anything happens, please don't change your opinion about me.”

Mikey stopped where he was, turned back and looked at Angharad with a confused expression. “What?”

“You might be the only person who thinks something good of me, Mikey, and I'd hate for you to no longer think anything good about me.”

Mikey was about to reply to her because he was severely confused as to what she was on about, but the bell beat him to it and Angharad turned on her heel and walked away from him.

Even though he didn't get her words and didn't know what she meant, Mikey couldn't help but feel like something was going to happen.

And that it'd be happening sooner rather than later.
