Everwood s02e09 Episode Script

Just Like in the Movies

Ask most people about their favorite movie How it all starts.
Where the fun truly begins.
No.
Forget it! C'mon! fun be have! Bikinis, the beach balls.
We could be having that much fun.
You see her? Her top comes off.
I'm not in the mood to watch soft-core porn with you.
C'mon.
Let's just get The Pianist.
No way! Just because you get the hives man from the babysitter doesn't mean I can just watch a stupid piano movie.
It's not just a piano movie.
It's also about the Holocaust.
Yeah, well, that's a selling point.
Forget it.
Just get whatever you want.
I don't care.
Alright, huddle up.
That means come here.
It's like working raw clay, man.
Look, you're obviously sprung on this chick so you need a game plan.
OK? And because I'm the master all things woman- No.
Forget it.
OK? Forget it.
I've tried everything.
No.
No, you haven't.
You've only tried what you've always tried and it didn't work, did it? You went the way of the wuss, put a boombox up in the air, you know, lay your heart on the line, Cusack crap.
That bit is tired, man.
Bottom line, you don't wantto be living in some dippy romantic comedy.
You, my friend, want to live the life of the action star.
Like The Rock.
Taking Japan by day, getting the hunnies by night.
That man's bicep is twice the size of my head.
I'm outta here.
OK.
No, no.
Forget The Rock, man.
Look, we're gonna work with what you've got, OK? And what you have is that mysterious vibe.
That kinda Joaquin Phoenix, "I could go postal on your ass any minute" kinda thing.
You gotta keep her guessing.
How do I do that? -By ignoring her.
-Ignore her.
That's your plan? It's perfect.
Right now, she's expecting you to be all, you know, "Hey, sorry about copping a feel the last night"- I did not cop a feel- But if you ignore her, you maintain your position of power.
Nothing keeps a girl around more than the possibility that hey, you might not want even her there.
You know, that actually makes sense.
It's wrong and evil, but it kinda makes sense.
Don't hate the player.
Hate the game.
"Alright, Rick.
" "Louis, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.
" "Just Like in the Movies" -Popcorn? -Check.
-Ice cream? -Check.
Did we rent the karaoke machine yet? I don't know.
Did we rent the karaoke machine yet? What? For my slumber party.
You promised.
Right.
Karaoke.
Got it.
And where are we on the pizza? Well, I thought I'd order it, you know, the night of the party.
I'd get a head start on that if I were you, Dr.
Brown.
At my last slumber party, we had a very serious pepperoni situation - total chaos.
Dad, we can't have chaos.
Don't worry.
I'll take care of it.
Now, listen, I got to go to work early, so Nina's gonna drive you guys, OK? He's acting weird.
We could be in trouble.
Morning, Edna.
Morning.
Has, uh - has Linda called? No.
Was she supposed to? Well, not necessarily, but I'm hoping she will.
You know, Doc, I might have been wrong the other day about you and Linda being sweet on each other.
I don't know why I said that.
Hell, I don't even know what's coming out of my own mouth most of the time.
I mean, I, uh, I drink a lot.
No, you were right.
There is something.
I mean, it's been awhile, but I know that feeling, and, uh, I think she feels it, too.
What sold you on it - her flat-out rejection or her flat-out rejection? For your information, the rejection was hardly flat-out.
It was more implied.
She didn't say she was interested, and then again, she didn't officially say that she wasn't.
Fine lines, Edna.
Fine lines.
I don't know, I think you spoke your piece pretty good the other day, and she didn't respond.
Doesn't that mean Words.
I gave her a bunch of words.
I haven't actually shown her that I can back up those words with some serious action.
And women like men of action don't they? I just don't want you to get hurt, that's all.
Trust me, she's gonna call.
How can you be so sure? What in the world Dr.
Brown sent them for your sister.
Isn't it romantic? Certainly is not romantic.
It is arrogant and puerile.
What, does the man think he can simply buy your affection with 100- Three hundred.
These must have cost a fortune.
You're right, Harry.
It's insulting.
But I have absolutely no intention of responding, so you don't have to get so upset.
You're not going to respond? No, I figure I will just ignore it, and eventually he'll take the hint and give up.
The man is persistent as a wart virus.
But I do applaud your strategy.
Although you may need to avoid him as well as ignore him in order to fully implement it.
I'll pick up lunch today from Mama Joy's.
Heck, we can eat in for the next two weeks if that's what it takes.
Oh, joy.
Uh, Louise, you can, ummm, take home the flowers if you want them.
What should I do about the card? Oh, I'll, uh - I'll get rid of it myself.
This prescription should last you six weeks.
-Do you know how to take it? -Yeah, I - All right.
Zoloft should be taken once a day in the morning or in the evening.
Whenever you prefer.
Now, once you decide, you need to take it at the same time every day.
Yeah, I know.
Thanks.
Excuse me, Know where the cashier is? I think he's on break right now.
Perfect.
He'll only be five minutes.
I wouldn't worry about it.
Oh, no, I'm not worrying.
I'm just in a hurry.
Something funny about that? Um, a little, yeah.
I mean, how old are you - 15, 16? Can't be too many things so important that being 5 minutes late would kill you.
What are the odds that the next moment is gonna be that much better? At this particular moment, they're pretty good.
Will that be all? Yeah.
That´s all.
Oh, um, no gum or anything? No.
Sorry.
I forgot.
You're in a hurry.
"It has b-been raining very hard for the past t-t-three hours.
" The point is to break up the sentence into smaller pieces.
Focus on the first part - "it has been raining" - then pause, and you don't have to speak so quickly.
I don't think this is w-working.
I think we're making great headway I was thinking I'd like to try the drugs, like maybe Z- Zyprexa? Where'd you even learn about that? The Internet.
I also know about respir- -respiradone.
Justin, those are both antipsychotics.
Which are sometimes used for - for stuttering, yes, but only very rarely, and I don't think this is the right path for you in this case.
I think if we continue the therapy - Don't you think drugs will work faster? Not necessarily.
There are risks involved.
There are neuromuscular effects.
You could experience Parkinson's-like symptoms, vertigo, seizures, not to mention the behavioral side effects, like insomnia, depression - I d-don't care.
Look, Justin, if you don't think I'm the best speech pathologist for you, I can always recommend someone else, but - She's leaving.
Who's leaving? Kirsten.
My friend.
My best friend, actually.
Who Who you want to be more than friends with.
Yeah.
But she's moving to Texas in t-three days.
And I have to t-tell her how I feel.
I didn't realize we were on a mission here.
You should've told me.
I thought it would sound dumb.
Justin, there is nothing dumb about the pursuit of a good woman.
And since we only have three days, we're gonna have to be more specific.
OK, here's what I want you to do - go home, write down everything you want to say to Kirsten, make it brief, memorize it, and come back here tomorrow, and we are going to practice it until you can recite it standing on your head.
Will that make a difference? Sure, it will make a difference.
If you know what you're going to say, there's a better chance of it coming out fluently.
And if that doesn't work, I know a really great florist I can refer you to.
Hey.
I was thinking we could do pizza tonight.
Would that be cool with you? Did you lose your voice or something? Or else I found this new recipe in Jane magazine.
I could try cooking.
I don't mind.
Whatever.
What's up? No, I'm still at work.
I'm almost done.
Look, Jay, if you don't want to go, it's fine.
That's not what I said.
You're twisting my words around again.
I'm not trying to pick a fight.
No, you're the one - no, I do not.
If you're going to stand there, help.
Shh! No, you said that.
You know what? It doesn't matter.
I'll go by myself.
Hey.
One gobstopper per bag.
One.
You know what? Forget it.
You guys almost finished with those? Almost.
Did you get into a fight? No.
That was just - Jay? Birds.
Uh, jaybirds.
That's something you need to have at your party.
What? You know, jaybirds.
It's a type of bird.
You know, birds, they sing.
Singing, thematically - that links you with your karaoke and the birds - your party theme.
Anyway, it's just a thought.
Whatever.
What's wrong with you? Nothing.
But I think there's something wrong with Madison.
I think she's upset.
I know.
I'm 10, not stupid.
So why don't you go talk to her, try to make her feel better? How am I supposed to do that? I don´t know.
Go tell her that she has nice hair or thatyou like her sweater or something.
Why don't you go tell her? Because I think it would mean more coming from you.
Why would she - Just go do it! Fine.
Hi, Madison.
I like your sweater.
Thanks, Delia.
And you don't have any pimples, either, which is good.
Thanks.
I'm sorry I've been such a bummer all day.
I'm just kind of in a rotten mood.
Why? Because my plans for tonight fell through.
I was supposed to have a date, but instead we decided to break up.
It's just kind of sucky, that's all.
Well, if you don't have anything to do tonight, you could come to my slumber party.
Oh, I don't know, sweetie.
Come on.
There's gonna be karaoke and pizza and you have to meet my best friend.
She's really cool.
Please.
You know what? That does sound like fun.
I'd love to come to your slumber party.
Thanks.
You're welcome.
OK.
Let's try it again, all right? And remember, just keep it simple.
This is all very casual, just two friends talking, OK? Casual.
Got it.
Hi, Justin.
You wanted to see me? Hi, K-Kirsten.
So, what's up? You've been my best f-friend for as long as I can remem-member, and I'm not sure when it happened, but my feelings for you b-began to grow.
Are you memorized this thing like we talked about? I spent eight hours memorizing it.
OK, all right.
I believe you.
You know what? I got it.
Maybe there are too many words.
We could just trim this part down.
It's not the speech, Doc.
It's me.
Every time I think of K-Kirsten, I g-get nervous.
Are you sure the drugs won't work? Not by tomorrow.
OK, I got it.
Let's just forget the speech.
Sit down.
Just sit down.
Forget that.
I want you to just tell me simply, OK, in the most basic way you can, what is it about Kirsten that's special? And don't - don't think, just talk.
It's not one thing, it's - it's just who she is.
Like, back in high school, when all the other kids used to make fun of me for the way I talk, she didn't.
She never finishes my sentences, either, you know, not even when she knows what I'm going to say.
My d-dad doesn't even do that.
And she loves movies, and almost like they were people.
You know how you have someone you call when you're feeling good and other people you call when you're feeling lousy? When she's s-sad, she rents "The Way We Were.
" And when something good happens to her, she rents "Groundhog Day.
" Her all-time f-favorite is "An Officer and A Gentleman.
" She told me once that she wished her life was like a movie.
I'm never gonna be able to do this, Doc.
I might as well just quit now and save myself the humiliation.
Come on, Justin.
You can't give up.
Not when you're this crazy about someone.
Sure you can.
Been doing it my whole life.
Madison's sleeping over tonight.
That's awesome! All systems go! No, no, that's not awesome, all right? She's coming over for Delia's slumber party.
I guess that's my fault inadvertently, but I was just trying to make her feel better.
Wait, what? That doesn't sound like ignoring to me.
I did it through Delia, so it's fine.
It doesn't matter, dude.
Vertically or invertically, it makes no difference.
"Inadvertently," Bright.
The word is "inadvertently.
" Look, genius-boy, you want to sit here and play scrabble or do you want to get the dibble- dabble? All right, thank you.
What time does the party start? I don't know - Seven? I'll be there at six.
-Why? -Because you need a wingman, somebody who's gonna keep you away from Madison.
Otherwise, you're just gonna screw things up worse than they already are.
Yeah, I didn't think about that.
Oh, obviously.
For being a smart guy, actually you're kind of an idiot.
No.
It's not gonna be like the ECC party.
I'm sorry.
I'm not interested.
How can you not be interested in meeting somebody that you don't even know? What are you looking at? Nothing, just the clock.
Is that Tommy Callahan? Who's Tommy Callahan? The guy at the pinball machine.
Huh.
Definitely Tommy Callahan.
I guess he's out of rehab.
Rehab? For what? The guy was, like, a total tweeker.
He was doing meth practically every day.
You didn't hear about this? Should I have? He went to County.
I guess you guys didn't really hang in the same circles though.
Did he graduate or something? Mnh-mnh.
He's only a year older than us, but when he was a sophomore, he tried to light his locker on fire, so they sent him to Olympic.
And I heard about the meth thing at boarding school.
Basically, the guy's famous for being insane.
Um, anyway, so it's just one party.
OK, fine.
I'll go.
Please? Thank you.
I can't wait for you to meet Bobby.
He's really, really, really sweet.
And he made me a mix CD, and I know that means he really likes me, so cute little Bobby with his blue eyes.
What in the name He's persistent, I'll give him that.
This one says "celebrate.
" It's my favorite.
Louise, I want you to round up these giant balls of helium and take them to the dumpster immediately.
This is a place of business, not a playground.
Linda, initially, I agreed with your idea to ignore the man, but clearly we have both underestimated the level of insanity that we are dealing with here.
You're gonna have to take some action.
I don't know what I'm supposed to do.
Tell him why you don't like him.
You do have some kind of reason, right? I have a reason.
I have lots of reasons.
For one thing, I am not a big fan of facial hair.
And, umm, ah, most importantly, umm, we wouldn't make sense in the long run.
We're just not a good fit.
That's all.
For God's sake, you have to tell him that.
Just go over there right now and, and let him down.
Right.
Let him down hard.
Louise, balloons - dumpster.
andiamo! Hey.
This has to stop.
So you got the balloons? I did, but I don't want them, and I don't want the flowers.
Do you understand? Not a big fan of presents.
Got it.
No, it's not the presents.
It's you, Andy.
I'm not interested in you.
I'm sorry.
I was hoping that we didn't have to have this whole conversation, but obviously we do.
The thing is I'm not attracted to you, and I'm sorry if I gave you the wrong impression, but I don't want to date you, and I don't foresee anything romantic happening between us.
Oh.
I'm sorry.
I didn't mean to hurt your feelings.
I just - I didn't know how else to put it, so, please, it just has to stop, OK? Sure.
OK.
The car I'm driving I bought it 'cause I depend on me / all the women that's independent Throw your hands up at me All the honeys who makin' money I think I need another soda.
You got a full glass right there.
Yeah, but if I go get another one, I can escape to the kitchen for a whole five minutes.
You know, sometimes you're smarter than you look.
Excuse me.
Don't take this the wrong way but your friend's a little weird.
Oh, let's just hope he's done with the ballad portion of the evening.
So, why does it seem like we haven't talked in forever? Dude, I feel a duet coming on.
Look it - Celine and Peabo? Uh, I think I'll pass.
OK, no worries.
Plenty to choose from.
Hey, could you move down a little? You're actually kind of invading my space here.
Yeah, sure.
Buh-bye.
Smooth, dude.
I told you - wingman.
You're sad, aren't you? A little bit.
Maybe you need a little karaoke.
My dad says singing is the cure for anything, and anyone can do it.
All you gotta do is open your mouth and sing.
Just open your mouth and sing, huh? -Hello.
-Hello.
Harold, what's all this for? Oh, just for being you.
A simple gesture, that's all.
It's lovely.
I assume Linda didn't mind you stealing all her presents like this.
Sometimes simple gestures are born out of convenience, Rose.
That doesn't make them any less thoughtful.
So I take it Linda told you about Oh, yes.
Isn't it remarkable? The only thing she didn't make clear is why she's refusing Dr.
Brown's advances.
It makes no sense.
It makes all the sense in the world.
She's not interested in him.
Oh, fiddlesticks.
There's definitely a connection between them.
Now, maybe she's a little afraid to get close to someone again, but Why would she be afraid of that? I don't know.
She hasn't been in a relationship for several years.
I think it would be a little bit scary to give up your independence.
That's ridiculous.
She came back home to Everwood to settle down, put down some roots, start a family.
A woman with those thoughts is looking to get into a relationship, not running away from one.
Well, I don't know what it is, but there's something holding her back.
I'm sure she'll figure it out.
I better put these in some water.
I've got someone waiting, too / but this is just the beginning we're already wet / You still in a hurry? Three sightings in two days.
It's gotta mean something.
Sorry.
I didn't see you there.
It's OK.
I'm Tommy, by the way.
Yeah, I know who you are.
You know, you probably shouldn't drink that.
Alcohol doesn't mix well with, um you know, you could get really sick.
Yeah, I know.
It's soda.
And it's actually none of your business, so Sorry.
I didn't mean to be an ass.
I just - I I usually don't know anything worth anything, so when I do, I have to say it.
Well, it's good to know that your expertise lies in knowing which kind of drugs and alcohol don't mix.
What's your name? Amy.
Amy.
Amy, do you maybe want to continue this conversation somewhere that doesn't have a keg? I don't think that's a good idea.
Why, are you afraid you're gonna miss out on this incredible party? Yeah, right.
So what's the worse that could happen? I don't know.
You could be boring.
I tell you what - if I'm more boring than this party, I'll give you something of mine to keep.
Here.
How about my cellphone? Does it come with a headset? Just b-because it worked in the car doesn't mean it's gonna work in real life.
It's been proven in hundreds of studies.
People with speech difficulties tend not to stutter when they're singing.
I mean, it's weird, but it's true.
It's something to do with breath control.
All you have to do is open your mouth and sing.
OK, Justin.
Here you go.
It's now or never.
And remember, you are going to be great.
I hope.
Justin, what are you doing here? Oh, Who knows what tomorrow brings? / In a world / few hearts survive Sounds great, huh? There are mountains My idea.
In our way / but we climb a step / every day /Love lifts us up where we belong / where the eagles fly / on a mountain high I- I know my voice isn't that g-great, but I couldn't let you leave without t-telling you how I feel.
I'm sorry, Justin but I just don't feel the same about you.
I'm sorry.
This guy is my hero - poet turned songwriter turned Buddhist.
Went from living a completely indulgent musician's lifestyle that took him all over the world to monking out on Mount Baldy.
"Chelsea Hotel" is just about the most amazing song ever written.
You need to own this album.
I don't have a record player.
Does it come in a CD? How can you not have a record player? This pains me.
Well, it's not like they're that easy to find.
Where did you get yours? My grandma left me hers after she died.
That's the only thing I ever got from anyone.
What about for Christmas or your birthday or whatever? Uh, I don't want to bum you out with the details of my, uh, "E! True Hollywood Story.
" But I wouldn't mind hearing yours.
I don't have any sad stories.
Right.
You know, a lot of people are on antidepressants.
It's not a big deal.
It is to some people.
Yeah, well, those people, I don't think they understand depression.
I mean, I know what it's like to want to escape your mind and your body and your entire life.
Yeah, I can tell.
But I never really got into the whole drug thing, so Why are you laughing? Yeah, well, I'm guessing you heard the whole "meth addict" rumor.
So you never - Meth? No.
Pot, yeah.
And I drank a lot, and then I wound up in rehab, which, I mean, it sucked at first, but it helped, you know? I'm clean now.
My brain works.
Well, barely.
So, um, you want to know what I heard about you? You didn't hear anything about me.
You didn't even know my name until I told you, remember? That's right.
I forgot about that.
But what were you going to say? I'm just curious.
Well, um, I was gonna say that I heard you were the prettiest, most popular girl at County High.
But you didn't care about that anymore.
You checked your tiara at the door the day your boyfriend died and you've been wandering the halls alone ever since looking for something or someone to fill the void and take all the sadness away.
Here.
Take this.
Got to find a way to get home strong / got to find a way back home Well, you must think I am quite the fool.
It just - it didn't occur to me.
It took several calls to a clinic in Beijing to find out the truth.
It was an intern who told me.
Her name was Jana.
She says to tell you hello.
Hope you don't mind, I told her I was your doctor.
I suppose you could say that I lied.
Then again, so did you.
Do you remember when I told you that I went to China for a case? Well, that case was mine.
After I was diagnosed, I went on a cocktail - you know, like you're supposed to - but I just felt certain that there were other methods available to me that I wasn't being exposed to.
So I went to Kunming, and I learned acupuncture and herbal remedies, and it didn't just make me feel better, it opened up a whole new world for me.
And once that happened, I knew that it was time to come home and share my life with the people that I care about most in the whole world.
I'm sorry, Harry.
I should've told you.
And Mother? She knows.
What about Andrew Brown? No.
No one else.
Well, Linda, if this is the only reason that you're not seeing him, you have to tell him.
No, I - I can't do that.
He's a grown man.
Let him decide for himself what he can and cannot handle.
You deserve some happiness in your life and so does he.
I thought you were ignoring me.
What gave it away? I figured it out when you fled from the kitchen when Jay called.
You must be freezing.
No.
I'm all right.
You want to talk about it? Not really.
You sure? I'm a really good listener.
I know you are.
So, what he do? Was it just the standard obnoxious behavior or what? Jay broke up with me because, um - well, because he felt like I didn't care about him the way that he cared about me.
And he wasn't wrong.
Well, that happens.
Yeah, it does.
But then he accused me of liking somebody else.
Somebody else.
Please tell me it's not the drummer.
No, it's - it's not the drummer.
Good.
But there is somebody else? You know, I didn't think that there was because when Jay said it, I told him he was crazy.
Me and this other guy, we're just friends.
But then I realized that I get excited every time I know I'm going to see this particular friend.
My stomach gets all fluttery when he walks into the room.
I don't know when that changed exactly.
Might have been the first time I saw him play his music.
Or maybe it was when he told me how he felt about me.
Nobody's ever talked to me like that before.
It was like he was 10 years older than me instead of 4 years younger.
Or the clincher was when he kissed me - I don't know.
At that moment, I just came undone.
Oh.
Unfortunately your taste in guys leaves a little something to be desired, but if this is what your gut's telling you to do, then I I think you ought to go for it.
So So.
I should probably get inside.
Probably.
Yeah, it's probably really late.
Or really early.
Oh, here.
Thanks.
Thank you.
I'll be seeing you.
Yeah.
Good morning, Doc.
You've got a patient in - You know what? It's not a good morning, Edna.
I wish it was, but it isn't.
Here's what I'm thinking.
Phones - phones are no good to people.
We sit, we wait for them to ring, they don't.
I want you to disconnect all of our phones today.
You don't think that would be bad for business? I don't charge.
How much worse could it get? Doc I'm sorry about Linda.
Yeah.
Me too.
Justin, what are you doing here? I just came by to t-thank you.
For what? It didn't work.
I'm sorry.
It was a stupid idea.
No.
It wasn't.
All I ever w-wanted was to know that I tried everything.
But she said no.
Yeah.
Yeah, that part suckes.
My whole life, I've hated how I talk so much that I figured it was better not to t-talk at all.
Kirsten isn't the first girl I've ever liked.
But she's the first girl I've ever t-told.
And just telling her felt pretty damn good.
So thank you.
You're welcome.
I'll see you Friday.
Maybe we could do more s-singing? I'll bring the karaoke.
I told you I have a cold.
So I heard.
I think you're gonna make it.
I- I know what you're gonna say, and it's cool, all right? You were confused, it was a moment of weakness about Jay.
Can you just stop talking for a second? I just - I am a little freaked out right now.
I mean, last night was - was kind of illegal - literally - and if prison was the only thing I was scared about right now, we'd be in pretty good shape.
But it's not.
I'm scared of a whole mess of things when it comes to you and me.
I mean, even saying "you and me" scares me.
We're just so wrong for each other, Ephram, in somany ways.
I mean, long-term couple thing, we'd never work.
The odds are so slim.
And short term, it's still weird.
But But? But that.
That's a problem.
That's the problem that we keep running into.
You know, I-I- I'm still a little bit sick.
I'm not sure if that was just a fever dream or what's going on, but do you think you could do it one more time just so I'm sure? I don't know what I'm doing here.
Neither do I.
But isn't that the way all great love stories begin? I'm not sure.
I've never been much for romantic comedies.
I'm way more into horror movies.
If I get sick, you're in big trouble.
Oh, don't worry.
I'm not that sick.
Yeah? Well, then, get out of bed, you know? Get your ass to high school.
I never want to say that sentence again.
I want to get to know you / I want to show you the peaceful feeling of my home / summer thunder on moon-bright days Northern lights in skies ablaze / I'll bring to you If you let me sing to you / northern lights in a fiery sky / show the trail of our lullaby sing to you / love is what I bring to you / and I want to sing you a love song / I want to rock you in my arms all night long I want to get to know you / I want to show you the peaceful feeling of my home Ooh la la la la / ooh la la la la / ooh la la la la I know you told me to stop.
So you decided to ignore that and serenade me instead? Well, I had to make sure I tried absolutely everything.
I have a question for you.
Shoot.
Do you know what's happening in the Democratic Republic of Congo? Uh, can't say that I do, no.
Well, for the past five years, foreign armies and the congoleseon go lesed forces have been locked in a power struggle, which has siphoned off most of the country's natural wealth.
And in the middle of this are most of whom have been displaced and are outside of the reach of aid workers.
While I was there, one of the villages I was stationed by came under attack.
Bombs were going off all around me.
And I set out to find whatever survivors I could.
There weren't many.
I know you've gone through losing patients, But that was different.
You cannot imagine this much death all around you.
I found a boy in one of the huts.
He'd been abandoned by his family.
He couldn't have been more than, uh, 3 years old.
I didn't know how long he'd been there, and I couldn't imagine why they had left him alone, but then I saw some sores around his lip and a few lesions on his back, and then it all made sense.
He was bleeding terribly, and I -- I knew I couldn't save him, but I wasn't gonna leave him there to die alone on the floor, so I picked him up, and I held him in my arms until he passed.
It wasn't until after he died that I noticed the gash on my arm.
It must have happened during one of the explosions.
I don't know what to say.
I know.
That's OK.
When did you get tested? About a month after that, and then, um a couple months later.
I just thought you should know the truth.
