That Night

She stepped back. dropped the knife.
I looked at her.
"run bitch"
she stepped back again. she turned to leave. but she turned back.
a single tear dropped from her evil face. she left.
"Haley, am I going to die?"
"No, big guy, your going to be ok!"
"Haley, I don't want to die."
"your not going to die!"
I sat their with his head in my arms. Silence. He looked at me with his big blue eyes.
Helpless. I held my hand over the slice in his little body.
the blood swam through my hands. As if my hand weren't there.
Blood trickled from James' small red lips. He looked at me.
"I'm dying"
he slowly closed his eyes. his head tilted to the side.
he was gone.
