Vanessa yelled before jai got on the bus "Yeah sure thanks!" Jai replied In the car "How was the hospital Luke?" Asked jai "Eh good I guess next week I need to go back and they will find out when my leg will be better but my arm is for eleven weeks" As Vanessa drives past a street attached to the main road they were driving on a car pull out and hits the side of the car Vanessa's on "Vanessa?

The ambulance arrived At the hospital Beau runs in "Is she ok!" Beau yelled "Aren't you meant to be in detention?" "I told them that there was a serious accident and I really needed to go so they called the hospital and asked if it was true and let me go!" Beau said still puffing "Well the doctor said she's proberly broken nearly every bone in her body" Luke starts crying again "Don't worry Luke she will be fine" jai said trying to comfort Luke The doctor walks in "Her X-rays say she has broken her other arm, both legs and a rib so it's not worst case scenario" "Yay she will live" Luke got up and shouted "She will be let out in a few days and will need support from you boys" "Ok" they all reply The next two days "Hey babe" Luke walks in "Hey lukey" "How ya feeling?"
