Impossible to settle into the day...
I was almost ready when he barged in.
- We have a knock rule...G-Pops!
- Are you okay?
- Until you came in...
- There's blood on your pillow. Let me look at you.
Grandpa grabs my head, with his thick hands, and examines me. It's like when I was young and we would go camping in the mountains and he would check for ticks.
- I'm not bleeding.
He releases his death grip and leads me back into my room. I must have been dead to the world to miss that this morning.
My pillow is covered with blood. Now I'm freaked...it looks like I lost about a pint. I'm weak and have to sit down for a minute. Don't know if it's the loss of blood or the sight of it.
No clue what it's from. I feel fine now, but G-Pops let me miss first period.
Back at school my mind drawn to wild possibilities. All I know is tonight I sleep with one eye open.
