Chapter 25: Happy Birthday.

The next morning I woke up to Ghoul shaking me. "Get up!!!!" He was smiling. I opened one eye to look at him "No." I said and rolled over. "Come on." He picked me up and threw me over his shoulder and started spinning. "Put me down!!" I screamed and laughed. He was giggling and he walked out of the room with me still on his shoulder. "Good morning." I heard Party say from behind me. I moved to where I could see him. "Good morning Party. Please make him put me down!!" I screamed and hit Ghoul. "I'm not putting you down!! I'm to hyper!" Ghoul laughed and Party walked over and hit my butt "HEY!!" I screamed and laughed "Happy Birthday kiddo." He said laughing. I watched as he walked to his room. Ghoul finally put me down and everybody was standing there smiling "HAPPY BIRTHDAY!" they all screamed at once. Ritalin and Misery ran over and hugged me. Bats gave me a high five and the guys tortured me. Bandit came out of the kitchen with a cake. "Thanks" I said to everyone. We ate cake and told jokes and watched as Party pushed Kobra out of his chair. Again and again. I was funnier the third time. There was a knock at the door and Party took his gun out and opened it. It was a little killjoy boy. He was tall and lanky. He had bright green hair. He ran in and closed the door."Snake Poison nice to meet ya." He was breathing hard. "Whats wrong?" Party asked the boy replied. "Dracs." We all took out our guns and walked outside and scanned the area. We were surrounded. One of the Dracs got me and burned the BL/Ind symbol into my hand and Ghoul immediatly killed him and rushed me into the house. "Bandit got shot. 6 times. Shes breathing, but knocked out." Party brought in Bandit and took her to her room upstairs. "Bandit." I got up and held my wrist to keep my hand from hitting anything. I rushed to her room and she was motionless and blood was dripping fom the wounds and from her mouth. She was out. She might not live. I broke down and fell to my knees and cried. Ghoul rushed upstairs and kneeled next to me. "Ghoul...." It was all I could manage to say. He hugged me tightly and said "I know Dren. She'll be ok. I hope..." He picked me up and took me down stairs and finished cleaning my hand. The burn left a perfect mark. It was the BL/Ind symbol and under it said 'KEEP RUNNING'. All I could think about was if Bandit was going to be ok. 6 wounds is a lot for one little killjoy to handle. I trust that Party will patch her up and make everything okay. "Ghoul where is Ritalin?" He didn't answer "WHERE IS SHE?" He looked me in the eye and said quietly "They took her. They took her to BL/Ind." He started to cry and Kobra Bats Jet Misery and Snake poison walked in. "I'm sorry." Ghoul picked me up and we went to his room. We stayed up and I cried on his shoulder and then we layed don and I soaked his shirt with tears. I couldn't sleep. I just...I drifted away. The Dream: I was outside my own body. I watched as Ghoul carried me in. I watched as the Dracs shot Bandit and I felt the pain. I felt the six shots hit me. I started coughing up blood. Ghoul shook me awake. "Dren! Your coughing up blood. DREN!" I woke up but kept coughing. I couldn't stop. I watched the blood hit the floor. I watched it and Ghoul was scared. "Dren. Dren." I heard him saying my name, but couldn't speak. I didn't have the strength. "I love you." Is all i could manage and Ghoul hugged me and kissed my blood stained lips. "I love you too Dren." He hugged me and I cried for the rest of the night. Happy Birthday to me...
