The first boy laid groaning in obvious pain. The right side of his body was raw and ripped, probably from the fall. His eyes fluttered open to look at me, eyes red. He cried.
The second boy was unconscious. Blood trickled down his head and his left arm seemed dislocated. His chest moved up and down very slowly yet his heart still beat.
Then the third body. This boy was farther away from the rest. Already laid on a stretcher, I approached him.
He was different from the other two. I seem to sense it as I got closer. He was dead.
Though no blood marked his body, his pale skin was red and bruised. His eyelids were dark, lips were colorless. His dark hair covered in snow.
Something in my chest caused me to gasp all a sudden. Suddenly I couldn't breathe.
My mother was suddenly by me, unfrozen.
"Linus please no." She cried.
Her voice was faint somehow. Though she was right next to me, it felt like she was a thousand miles away.
I clutched my throat while at the same time reaching out for mom.
She blatantly ignored me.
"Mom!" I cried out inaudibly.
I try to get her attention by grabbing onto her arm, but i'm stopped by the sudden intense pain that started to hum around my body.
Mom's sobs bring involuntarily tears to my eyes.
"Mom!" I try again. This time my voice was merely a whisper.
"Help me!" I cry. "Please!."
I can't move now. My bones have stiffen. Everything on the inside ached.
Then I felt my insides shift forward. I felt my entire being spilt and tear. My vision starts to blur, until finally darkness.
My voice won't work anymore, I can't move my mouth. I don't remember when my feet left the ground, but it did and now I am floating.
Faintly I still hear mom calling out.
But I don't remember to who.
She sobbed, calling out "Linus! Linus!"
Over and over and over again.
Something compelled me to answer for some reason but I don't know why.
So I just wait there in the darkness, my body quickly becoming numb. Finally, I don't feel, see, or hear anything anymore.
Not even the beating of my own heart.
Then surprisingly my vision started to clear. Fuzzy at first, I'm surprised to see my mother's tears streaked face crying down at me.
She's crying, "Linus why?"
She's shaking me, though I don't feel her.
Police officers surround her, surround me and try to stop her from shaking me, but mother screams louder letting out her rage and sorrow to all who restricted her.
"Who did this!" She screamed and sobbed. "Who killed my baby!?"
The police stand solemnly not knowing what to say to ease the tense sadness in the air.
"We're sincerely sorry for your---"
"Tais Toi!" A voice shouted angrily. His voice faltered as he came into view.
"Mon fils!" Dad cried out as he looked down at me.
I was happy to seem him. I wanted to smile but all I could do is watch.
"Ce qui s'est passe, mon fils?"
He asked me what happened.
I don't know the answer.
Tears slipped down his face and for the first time, I watched my father break down and fall apart in front of me.
"Pourquoi mon fils?! Pourquoi?!" He asked devastated.
I don't know why this happened.
I still feel nothing when he touches and sweeps his big hand through my hair.
I want to feel the pain on my parents faces but I can't. I watch as they both cry over me. The police stand awkwardly behind them waiting patiently.
I still don't know what going on.
In my head I call out to them.
After a long while, they start to draw away from me, still crying as the police lead them away.
I'm then blinded by a white sheet that is laid gently over my face. I'm lifted up and moved towards the ambulance. Except I don't move with my body.
I watch as my limp body is taken into the ambulance with the other bodies and the doors lock behind it.
Mom, dad and my siblings follow suit into the ambulance, and only a few police officers remain once dawn comes.
I'm just left with my thoughts.
What happened to me?
Why did this happen?
Who am I?
Then suddenly, as if I was shocked, it all came back to me.
I'm Linus and today I died.ns 18.104.22.168da2
