Get In, Fit In
8 shot, 4 dead was the report on the news station that Venus was watching as she was waiting with her friends to see Jacob. What happened was still bewildering to her. Why would a drug dealer shoot up her school? It didn't seem like he had a real reason to come, at least that's what Venus thought.
She looked at her friends, and saw that all of them shared the same look she did, one of sadness and confusion. What had Jacob done to deserve being shot in the stomach?
Raya was the most distraught. She loved Jacob, and, worst of all, had seen him get shot. Since she was there before the rest of her friends, she had seen his parents' distraught over their son being shot, she heard his mother scream, "JACOB!" and burst into tears, she had seen everything and then some, and she was not happy about it.
Everyone sat in silence as they waited to see Jacob. Finally, after what seemed like an eternity, a nurse came in and said they could see Jacob.
They were shocked to see Jacob. The usually jovial face was blank and asleep. Raya couldn't take it, thinking he was in a coma, screamed and hugged him. Jacob woke up instantly and looked confused at the sight of Raya sobbing and hugging him.
"What's wrong, Raya?" said Jacob gravelly as she hugged him.
"Jacob, you're awake!" Raya said in teary astonishment.
"Yeah, why wouldn't I be?" he said as if it was obvious.
"Um, you got shot!" Venus answered.
Jacob sat up and said, "Um yeah, in the stomach! It's not like I got shot in the head!"
"How can you be so nonchalant about it?" Venus asked in disbelief.
"I heard the doctor's diagnosis. He said that I was going to be fine, so I'm not worried about it." Jacob explained.
Exclamations of "That's great!" and "Woo-hoo!" filled the room. The cheerfulness and happiness that filled Room 136 was a stark contrast to the emotion in Room 246.
