Chapter 2

Dying

The next day I had woken up on top of Mason, snow chips on my face.

"M-Mason?" I mumbled.

"Oh, hey, you're finally up," he replied and pushed me off.

"Where did Levi go?" I asked.

"Getting food," he said and went to pack stuff up from the tent. "There was a helicopter last night hovering above us so I'm guessing they're sending out a rescue squad to come get us." I sighed with happiness. It might have been fun trying survive but it was time to go home. Who knows what could happened if we stayed here for two more weeks? We could have died.

"I'll be right back," I said and ran off to the forest and to one of the trees. I had decorated it with painted pine cones and specks of different colors so it looks like a Christmas tree. I stared at it and smiled, thinking about home and back when it was Christmas and we'd give presents to everyone. Mistletoe decorated above door frames and fake snow piled the floor.

"Hey," someone had whispered in my ear and grabbed me from behind.

"Levi, where have you been? You seem like you're getting sick and I don't want anything bad happening to you," I complained. He coughed.

"I'm fine," he said and gave me a smile. He let go of me and walked in front of me. "I'm going to drop off this food off to Mason and then I'll come back here," I nodded and he walked off. The mother inside me was being exposed. I hate treating him or Mason like my kids. Maybe I just worry to much. I ignored the thought and waited to see Levi come back.

Again, Levi and I had gone back to the tree at night. I laid my head on his chest and he held my left hand.

"I wish someone would just come and find us. I hate everything about Antarctica." I mumbled into his ear.

"No worries," he said. "Someone will come. Knowing your parents, they've probably already got millions of people off looking for you and your brother." I shivered in his arms.

"Do you wanna go back to the camp? It's much warmer over there," he asked and continued to cough. I looked at him with worried eyes, then looked to the snowy ground.

"I guess," I sighed. We walked over to the camp. Mason was already fast asleep and there was no waking him up when he's asleep. We sat next to the burning fire to try to warm ourselves. I was still worried about Levi and his cough. I examined him. He was paler than usual. His eyes were half-way shut and it's rare that he is ever tired .

"Are you sure you're okay?" I cried. I knew he wasn't. I knew there was something very wrong.

"Stop worrying about me," he ordered and pulled me over to him. "I only have a headache and a sore throat,"

"But that could lead to something worst." I murmured. He kissed my forehead.

"Maybe if you go to sleep, I'll be better in the morning."
