She was a complete idiot. Despite what Miyu kept telling her, this was her fault. He called her. Koi had called because he needed her and she was so busy fussing with her make-up for this stupid, STUPID dance that she'd missed his call. She knew now why he hadn't answered his phone when she called him back. Dhonny's words echoed in her head as Miyu pushed her across the parking lot toward the emergency room. Devyn at least had enough sense left to gather her dress so she didn't make more of an ass of herself by falling. He slit his fucking wrists, Dev...Devyn wasn't sure she had ever seen or heard Dhonny cry, but he had been doing it then. He'd had to say those words out loud to her to tell her what was happening and she knew that shit was hard because she was having trouble just thinking it. You gotta meet us at Mahelona. He slit his fucking wrists, Dev... Not many ways to sugar coat a suicide attempt, huh?

Devyn was just happy that Miyu had been with her because there was no way she would have made it here alone. Miyu was a wreck, but she was functioning. Devyn was just...numb. Since Miyu led her out of her aunt's apartment and put her in the car, she hadn't spoken, she reminded herself to breathe every so often, and she'd just...checked out. Neither of them had stopped crying since Dhonny called, but all Devyn could do was pray Koi wasn't next in a long list of people she loved leaving her.

Fuck. Why was everything always so hard for them? Why was everything about her relationship with Koi so gotdamn complicated?! She was finally happy! They were together and graduating and going to school together next year...She just had to push. She always pushed and it had been too much. Prom was too much pressure. Too much to ask for, but she had been selfish and gotten them here. Over a stupid school function. Devyn was snapped out of her thoughts by Dhonny, his arms looping around her in greeting.

"How is he? Is he okay?"

His eyes burned. And he was sure that they were swollen. But shouldn't they have been? That was normal right? After what he'd seen when he pulled up to Koi's house?The ambulance. Koi's mom sobbing, stumbling as she tried to keep up with the EMTs pushing Koi on a stretcher into the back of it. The mask over Koi's face. He wasn't moving. Yeah, Dhonny was sure crying so fucking hard that he'd barely known when they'd made it to the hospital was completely normal.

Dhonny rubbed his neck as he exhaled softly, leaning against one of the walls in the waiting room. There were chairs, he could've sat down. But he couldn't. He was too...things were too... It was too much. He was better on his feet. It'd been some time since they'd called Fumie to the back, telling them in hushed voices that Koi was "stable", that he was "lucky". How the hell was he lucky if he hadn't woken up yet? Dhonny's head shook as he willed away another round of tears. He wasn't going to start that again. Not while he was there, waiting for Devyn and Miyu to show. How the hell would that look? Tears running down his face when they finally made it to the hospital? What would they think? Probably exactly what he'd been thinking while they worked on him in the back...

"I'm going to get coffee." His head raised at the voice he'd heard, looking up into the face of a man that he still couldn't say he knew. He'd forgotten Zori was propped on the wall next to him...keeping him company. Making sure he didn't totally lose it. Zori's hand clapped down on his shoulder heavily as he walked away, a reassuring pat. But it didn't do anything to fix the burning in his eyes. The sinking feeling in stomach. The disgust he felt when he thought about the fact that...the fact that his best friend tried...shit.

...that his best friend slit his wrist.

His head fell back on the wall, a fiercer sting gathered in his eyes, telling him that unwanted tears welled behind them. He couldn't cry. He wasn't going to let himself do that. Even though he had every reason to do so. Koi wasn't waking up. Eri hadn't spoken...or moved since they'd found Koi in the bathroom. They'd taken her back for observation, too. Fumie was a wreck, her eyes bloodshot when the finally called her back into Koi's room, her hands shaking as she brushed Dhonny's hair out of his face...told him to be strong...told him everything would be okay.

It had to be okay.

The sound of the ER waiting room doors sliding open made Dhonny look up, his legs moving before he fully realized that he was moving towards Miyu and Devyn. His arms wrapped around Devyn, Miyu catching his outreached hand.

"He's..." How was even supposed to answer that? Was Koi okay?

"I don't know..." Dhonny's voice caught in his throat as he fell silent, swallowing tears.

"He's stable. That's all we know."

Nothing really felt real. Minutes ago she was getting ready to go to senior prom with the love of her life. She was finishing her hair and making sure her skin had just the right glow. She was so excited and so happy. Life came at you fast she guessed, because now she was here, asking Dhonny questions he didn't know the answer to and trying her best not to ask him any more...But he was stable. Stable was good, right? Stable meant he was going to be okay didn't it? Then why did Dhonny look like he was on the verge of a breakdown?

Devyn pulled away from him, her hands cupping his face as she wiped away tears with her thumbs. She wanted to ask if he was okay, but she already knew the answer. None of them were okay. She gave a weak smile, hoping that would be of some comfort, but she was sure it wasn't. Especially because this was her fault.

She pulled away from him, her hand reaching back for Miyu's again as she leaned on her for support. Miyu was always there when Devyn needed her and it was way more than she felt she deserved right now. She hadn't answered his call. Something had happened and he'd called her and she didn't answer. He'd needed her and she didn't answer. This was the result. She, Dhonny, and Miyu trying their hardest to keep it together in the hospital waiting room as they waited for news. Devyn could only imagine what his mother was going through. What Er...Oh God. Eri. She had to be heartbroken.

"Was Eri home when...when he...-" she couldn't say it. Devyn gave a small gasp attempting to quell the sob that really wanted to come out. She couldn't even fix her lips to say Koi had tried to kill himself. Devyn didn't answer and he didn't see another out.

So Koi had tried to kill himself.

He exhaled hard again, knowing that even if he could feel embarrassed about the tears that Devyn wiped away from his face, he wouldn't. Not with her. Not with Miyu. Not with his family. For the first time in hours, he felt like his body parts were attached to him again. He'd felt so...discombobulated. Like he wasn't complete. But with Miyu's hand in his, her other hand in Devyn's...it felt closer to normal. Closer to what it'd feel like if his fucking heart hadn't gotten ripped out and was in that cold, sterile room, fighting just to...

His thoughts halted as he fought back another round of tears, his head hanging as Devyn started asking the questions that he didn't want to answer. More like he couldnt' answer them. Instead, he only nodded to her question, confirming what he knew Devyn was praying wasn't true.

"Yeah..." He said, sniffing as the tears he'd been fighting started up again, clinging to his eyelashes before they ran down his face.

"She...um..." His voice choked a little as he tried to speak through his tightening throat.

"They've got Eri in observation...she hasn't spoken since Koi went in..." Talked. Or blinked...or moved.

Eri. In everything that had happened Devyn hadn't thought of her once until now. She knew Eri was home when it happened; she was more excited about prom than Koi was (not that that was hard). She had already told Devyn how excited she was to see her dress and she'd even thrown in a sweet lie about Koi being just as giddy as she was. Their little babe had to be crushed with this whole mess.

Dhonny confirmed that she was, telling Devyn that Eri had been taken back for observation. She hadn't spoken since Koi...Devyn heaved a heavy sigh. She didn't know what to do. She didn't know what she even could do! She wanted to comfort Dhonny, she wanted to be with Eri, but hell, she couldn't even take care of herself right now...She just needed Koi to be okay. She needed him get out of this hospital and be okay.

Everything was a mess. And Miyu didn't care if she was stating the obvious. Because it was...a mess. Which was crazy because less than two hours ago, things were fine. She and Devyn were talking makeup and figuring out their dresses in her aunt's apartment. And now? This. Dhonny wouldn't stop crying. Devyn, too...and she...dammit, Miyu was barely holding it together, her arms around Devyn as she and Dhonny spoke in hushed whispers. Their expressions were saying so much more than their words were. Eri was in shock. Koi's mom was a wreck. And Koi...Jesus...

A shaky breath left Miyu's lips as she pulled Devyn even closer to her. As if she could...Devyn was so close to her already. Miyu was holding her up. She could feel it. She knew that if she let Devyn go, she'd collapse. But the question really was, what was holding Miyu up? Her face was pale. She knew it. She could tell by the way her hands refused to stop shaking. How SHE refused to stop shaking. She just couldn't...believe any of this was happening. Sure, she knew Koi. She knew how he was. She knew the complete filth he put into himself and why he did it. But she never thought he'd take it...this far. Especially not now. It was prom night, for god sakes. It was the night he and Devyn had been waiting for and then he went and did something stupid like this...

And there was the guilt again. The tightness at her throat when she thought the way she was about Koi. He was somewhere on that hall...in a bed...with wires and tubes sticking out of him and Miyu was...

She was...furious with him.

How could he do this to them? How could he do this to Devyn? To himself? Another inhale and exhale and Miyu shook her head, barely registering the conversation going on...the catch in Dhonny's voice as he tried to keep from crying again...the way Devyn's words failed her, but Miyu really knew it was because she was just lost...and felt as guilty as Miyu did...

...or the tall linebacker with dreads walking towards them carrying two coffee cups.

"Guys..." Miyu eyed the stranger warily as she spoke softly, attempting to get Dhonny and Devyn's attention.

"Guys." She spoke again, nodding her head in the stranger's direction as he stopped close enough to them to hear their conversation.

"Who the hell is he?"

She felt like she was falling off a cliff. Having to come to Kapuhai Reef, cutting ties with her brother, the death of her mom, her faux relationship ups and downs, their earth shattering break up...She had been falling for so long. And oddly enough it wasn't the falling that was fucking with her. It was that she never seemed to hit the bottom. Things just seemed to get worse and worse and every now and then she would have just a moment where she thought she could reach out and grab a rock and save herself...but no. Something else would happen and she would start falling again and it had seemed like it wouldn't end, but then...Koi said he loved her. Koi told her he loved her and she finally felt like she could stand up and start trying to get back to the top of her cliff with him. But it had been a false bottom.

Devyn allowed Miyu to pull her closer, knowing she might collapse if her friend ever let her go. In all of this Miyu had seemed so calm, but Devyn knew she wasn't. Her face was ghostly and she was sure she could feel her shivering despite the fact that it was a balmy 74 degrees outside. Miyu was shook just like the rest of them. In fact, Devyn wasn't sure she had heard her speak since getting her in the car until...Who the hell is he?

Devyn's eyes followed Miyu's to...that guy. Devyn knew his face. She remembered him from a random day she and Koi had decided to get food at Basil's. They were coming out and Eri, his mom, and this guy were walking down the boardwalk with ice cream...Back then Fumie had introduced him as a friend...Eri gave Devyn a look that said she should be skeptical, but Koi didn't want to talk about it after. Who would want to talk about their mother having a possible affair on the father that they hated. She let it go then. But here the guy was now...

"It's his mom's...friend-," her response came quietly as her brow furrowed. What was he doing here? Devyn's attention turned to him. "Hey. I don't know if you remember me. We met on the beach that day...-," she was babbling. "Were you at the house...when he-," she stopped, her voice trailing off the way it had been every time she thought about what they were all doing here instead of prom.
