Michelle is at home that evening, working on her homework at the informal dining room's table.
Sep 09, 2002 05:53 PM
Alan McHenry walks in with a man behind him. His look was half sour, and a bit concern.
"Michelle, I would like you to met an old friend of mine...Mr. Alexandir Indigo II, But I call him Fox."
Alexandir bowed his head.
"Hullo Miss McHenry, its a pleasure to met you."
Alan bent down to Michelle.
"He has something to tell you, and its very important."
Fox looked at Alan with a proper manner, and looked down at Michelle.
"I'm Alex's Father, and as his father,
its my right to let you know that Alex is very hurt, and in the
hospital due to a car accident."
He pause, waiting for the little miss to cry like children do. "I will take you to see him if you wish."
He bows his head.
Sep 09, 2002 05:56 PM
Michelle's eyes widen, but she doesn't cry; she's far too old for that (she thinks, anyway). She gets up out of her chair and curtsies to Mr. Indigo, though she feels ill. "Please, take me to him," she says, her voice shaking.
Sep 09, 2002 06:05 PM
He takes her hand.
"Very well..come on young lady."
Alan comes with them to the hospital.
Alex is still uncounstious at the time.
((blah blah bangages..don't feel like writingit agin..))
Fox looked down at him.
"And the fool is still asleep in a lady presance."
Sep 09, 2002 06:07 PM
"Alex!" Michelle says in a loud whisper. She grabs his hand, then looks back at Mr. Indigo. "Is he going to be all right, sir?"
Sep 09, 2002 06:14 PM
He looks at her.
"The doctor says hes lucky to have lifed, if he had hit it with the top of his head, it would of broke his neck, but he hit side ways, so it hit the side of his face and head...but I'm sure, he'll be alright, with prayer and friends, I'm sure, he'll be okay."
Alan looked at Fox, as if he was a ghost, but didn't say a word, just looked at Alex.
Alex felt someones hand, and squeezed it lighty.
Sep 09, 2002 06:16 PM
"Alex," Michelle says softly, squeezing his hand back. "It's me, Michelle...I guess you can't talk..." Tears come to her eyes.
Sep 09, 2002 06:20 PM
Fox looked at Alan.
"you have a beatiful daughter...."
Alan puts his hand on Fox.
"she my sweet heart, she is...Michelle...would you like to stay longer?"
Sep 09, 2002 07:54 PM
Michelle nods at her father silently, then looks back at Alex. "Get better, Alex...get better soon..."
Sep 10, 2002 06:21 AM
Alex moaned a bit, then his right eye
It slid from his father on to Michelle, but his mind was dazed, thoughts and memories wasn't in the order of time.
"Oh sister!" Touches Michelle hair. "I'm so sorry, tell mother sorry, I just got so jealous, that mother would brush your long hairs, and sing to you.."
His hand started to thurb.
"your hair was so long and pretty, and mother always boast on it, to other ladies that evening."
Fox walked up to Alex, standing beside
Alex's eye slid to his father.
"Is she upset? I'm so sorry..."
Alan stayed were he was.
Sep 10, 2002 09:52 AM
Michelle wipes her eyes, but looks pale and shaken. "Alex, it's me, Michelle. Don't you remember?" Fearing he doesn't, she quickly adds, "Don't worry about that now. Just rest. You'll be better soon."
Sep 10, 2002 10:03 AM
Fox put his hand on Alex's head.
"shhh..go to sleep Alex, mothers never mad at you."
Alex looked at Michelle.
"Good night sister..."
He closed his eye and went back to sleep.
Sep 10, 2002 10:21 AM
Michelle just stares at Alex, bewildered. Suddenly something dawns on her, and she turns to Fox.
"Mr. Indigo, sir...Alex told me his family were dead..."
Sep 10, 2002 10:27 AM
He looked at her.
"yes they are, the only reason I lived though the fire was that I wasn't there like i was suppose to be."
Alan looked at Michelle.
"Even I thought Fox was dead, I even thought that Alex was dead too..."
"Strange isn't it? I looked for the people who I thought did it, but never could find them..."
Alan turned to Fox.
"So who do you think did it."
Fox looked dazed.
"I thought I knew, but now I'm not sure who did it...I'm just letting it go, aleast I have Alex and Maeve, and you Alan."
Sep 10, 2002 10:40 AM
Michelle looks at them, wide-eyed. She shudders. "It was probably an accident, sir," she offers.
Sep 10, 2002 10:46 AM
"How? it was so planned, they were all trapped on the second, while someone started it on the first in my libary, where I had all the notes, and business."
"it was no accident."
Alan looked at Alex.
"Hes getting some colour back."
He turned to Fox.
"Lets let him alone, he'll come to soon. Michelle, what do you wish, would you like to go to a candie shop, and bring back some flowers?"
"that sounds nice, some flowers."
Sep 10, 2002 10:50 AM
Michelle nods soberly. "Yes...we should bring him some flowers..." She squeezes Alex's hand again, then drops it, heading to the door.
Sep 10, 2002 11:05 AM
They walk to a flower shop.
Fox looked at Michelle, "I don't know if any or in season, but Alex's faviote colour is purple."
Alan looked confussed.
"Purple, thats a girl colour."
Fox shakes his head.
"Thats what I told him, but he says it pleases his eyes..."
Sep 10, 2002 11:20 AM
It's a nice flower shop, and there's a few types of purple and lavender flowers. The healthiest ones are plain purple carnations, and those are what Michelle picks.
Sep 11, 2002 06:56 AM
Fox buys some lylics and puts yellow roses for the center of the beuquet, with some baby's breathes to accent it.
"I think we should be going, oh my those are pretty carnations you have there Michelle, is that your favioute flower?"
Alan smiles, taking Michelle's hand.
"She so sweet, sweeter than a honey silkel!"
Sep 11, 2002 10:17 AM
Michelle puts her hand around her father, though she still looks rather sad. "I didn't want to bring Alex sickly flowers, sir." she says quietly.
Sep 11, 2002 10:34 AM
Back at the room Alex has woken back up, and looks at the flowers as they walk in.
"I'm not dying...am I dying!?"
He remebers when he brought Stellas mother flowers, and then she died. He wont let it happen to him, he wont die like that.
Fox sat at the end of his bed.
"One would only hope that you would, but no, God had let you live....don't know why."
Alan sat back with a blank look.
Sep 11, 2002 10:41 AM
"Mr. Indigo, that's a terrible thing to say!" Michelle says quickly, without thinking. She pauses, realizing what she's done, but doesn't look like she regrets it. She turns to Alex, taking his hand. "Of *course* you're not going to die, Alex. You're young and healthy. And hard-headed."
Sep 11, 2002 10:44 AM
Fox looked at Alex.
"Very hard headed."
Alex tried to kick his father, but couldn't, he just moaned.
"Oh go away father....your making
Looks at Michelle, but couldn't think of her name.
So he calls her the first name that came to mind.
"Stella upset, now go away."
Sep 11, 2002 10:46 AM
Michelle's eyes widen. "ALEX!" She punches him in the arm and turns away angrily.
Sep 11, 2002 10:59 AM
Alex looks confussed.
"What?" Stops and try to think some more, then relies hi follie.
"Oh Michelle, I'm so sorry I well...I can't help it.."
Fox glared at him.
"your a fool Alex, the biggest one I ever seen."
Sep 11, 2002 11:20 AM
Michelle glares at Mr. Indigo. She'd really like to leave, but she also doesn't want to leave Alex with this horrible man. "He's still hurt, sir," Michelle finally says meekly. "Perhaps he doesn't know what he's saying."
Sep 11, 2002 11:28 AM
He looks at Michelle, in a haughty way.
"My dear child, he never knows what hes saying."
Alex looks up, then closes his eyes.
and thinking to himself.
Must find strenght to live...
"Leave...leave me alone..."
Sep 11, 2002 11:33 AM
Michelle gets tears in her eyes; before today she could hardly imagine a parent who hated his child so. "M...maybe he needs his rest, sir," she says weakly.
Sep 11, 2002 11:38 AM
He stands up.
"yes, he does need rest, shall we go?"
He looks at his pocket watch.
"yes I think we should its probally getting late."
Sep 11, 2002 11:48 AM
"I'll come visit every day, Alex," Michelle says quietly, heading towards the door.
Sep 11, 2002 11:51 AM
Looks at her.
"bye little sis..."
He closes his eyes and go to sleep.
Sep 11, 2002 11:52 AM
Luckily for Alex, Michelle doesn't hear his comment. She grabs her father's hand and leaves the room.
Sep 11, 2002 12:05 PM
Once they're out of earshot of Mr. Indigo, Michelle hugs her father tightly. "I love you so much, Father..."
Sep 11, 2002 12:07 PM
Hugs her back.
"I love you more than you know!"
Kisses her on her forehead.
"I love you Michelle."
Fox looked and turned away.
