Abby's P.O.V

The man standing at the door looks exhausted and out of breath. He's wearing a hospital gown and is looking around frantically. Liam stands up from his seat and begins to walk over towards Daniel and I stand up and walk behind him. But as soon as Daniel sees Liam and I walking towards him he stops and squints at us before turning around and bolting back out the door.

"Daniel!" Liam shouts as Daniel sprints out of the little ice cream shop. Liam runs out after him but I don't bother following him because there's no way that I'd be able to catch up with them. I walk back over to our table and decide to call Scott to tell him that we found his brother. But when I take my phone out I try to turn it on and realize that it's dead. I groan and sit back in my seat, I might as well just wait here until Liam comes back.

"What was all of that about?" I look up to see Ryan standing above me with a look of confusion on his face. He's holding the same broom that he always seems to be holding whenever I come here.

"N-nothing, " I say shaking my head tiredly.

"Who was the guy you were with then?" He asks raising his eyebrows. He sets his broom down and sits down in the seat across from me.

"J-just some idiot, " I say shaking my head at him.

"You seem to bring a lot of those in here, " he says smiling at me strangely.

"Are you t-talking about S-scott?"

He just shrugs and sits back in his seat, making himself comfortable. I notice his eyes scanning my face and I immediately look down at my hands to avoid having to look at him.

"W-Where's B-brittany?" I ask him realizing that I haven't seen her since the first time Scott and I came to this ice cream shop. "Does she n-not w-work here anymore?"

"She's just on vacation, " he shrugs nonchalantly. "I'm taking over this place until she can make it back."

I don't know why but all of a sudden I'm starting to feel a little uncomf

won't be coming back to school?" Becca asks sounding just as worried as I've been. I know they've grown close lately. Becca doesn't like to admit it but I know that she cares.

"She can after a couple of days, " Doctor Joseph says as she begins to pack up her stuff. "It definitely doesn't help to shut people with her condition off from society. She needs to normalize herself with the world again, and treating her differently won't help at all. From what I've heard she's still in the early phases so hopefully if she takes the meds and doesn't get too stressed out she should be fine. But she will not be allowed back on the campus if she has an episode on campus."

I furrow my eyebrows at the thought. No Abby on campus? No Abby in my room to piss off? No one but me in the room? It's kind of a foreign thing to imagine. She's usually always just...there.

"Let's say she does have another one of these episodes, " I hate using that word when we're referring to Abby. "And it ended up like this one. What would happen?"

"Well I'm sorry to say this, " the doctor says as she begins to leave the room. "But if another one of these episodes happens it probably means that she certainly has a serious case of schizophrenia and she would have to be hospitalized immediately."
