"Okay Bailey I'm going to take you to your scan while your Uncle
makes some phone calls. You ready to go sweetheart?" I nodded
gently. Taylor looked at me from where we sat next to me again.
"I'm ready." I whimpered. Taylor held my hand as Aunt Kelsey
rolled my bed out the door to get the CT scan done. When we got
to the door Aunt Kelsey looked at Taylor.
"You're going to have to wait here okay?" Taylor looked at me but
"I'll be just out here okay?" I nodded as Aunt Kelsey rolled me
in closing the door behind her.
"Where did you meet him?" She asked smiling at me.
"He was at the dinner with his brother." I said closing my eyes.
Aunt Kelsey tapped my arm.
"Eyes open sweetheart." I opened my eyes to look at her. "Keep
talking with me Bails. He seems like a nice guy." She helped me
get onto the table that was connected to the machine.
"He is. He can play pool too." I said looking at her. She smiled.
She fixed the pillow under my head.
"You need someone who can kick ass as well as you can." She
chuckled. "Don't move your head okay." I looked at her as she
gave the person behind the glass thumbs up.
"Okay Auntie." I looked up as the ring started to circle my head
as I went through the machine. "But we aren't together." Auntie
Kelsey looked at me.
"Really? You two seem together."
"Yeah well seeming together and together are two totally
different things." I sighed. Auntie Kelsey walked over and helped
me back onto the hospital bed.
"Aw Bails what's wrong?" She said stroking my hair.
"Jayden was being a ass hole to day and it is just playing on my
"You and Jayden fighting? That isn't normal." She rolled me out
of the room. Taylor was leaning on the wall opposite from the
door and smiled at me when our eyes met. He walked over to us.
"How was it?" He asked taking my hand. I linked our fingers
together and looked at him.
"It wasn't too bad." I nodded. Aunt Kelsey rolled me back to the
room and hooked my bed back into the wall.
"Well I will go see your Uncle before I go see if the results are
in. Marine make sure she does not fall asleep yet." Taylor
"Yes Ma'am." She looked at me.
"We will be finishing our little conversation later." She said
pointing. I nodded at her reaching for the remote to the TV.
Taylor looked as I changed the channel to the kids' movie
channel. Toy Story 3 was on. I cuddled in my blankets. I looked
at Taylor as he watched me.
"What?" I asked him. He smiled shaking his head.
"Nothing." He said looking at the screen to start watching the
About half way through I started to fall asleep again making
Taylor gently shake my shoulders. "Bailey you have to stay
awake." He said as I opened my eyes.
"I don't want too." I mumbled at him closing my eyes again.
"Come on. Let's talk. Tell me about yourself. Let's keep you
awake that way." I nodded.
"How about you tell me something about you and I will tell you
something about me." I said rubbing my tired eyes.
"Okay, um let's see, I have a twin brother named Skylar." He
nodded. I gave a little laugh.
"Speaking of Skylar where is he?" I asked looking over at him.
"He probably went back to the beach or maybe he went home. I'm
not really sure." He shrugged. "But now you have to tell me
something about you since I told you something about me." He
smirked laying his arms down on the metal bars of the bed.
"Okay I have a twin brother named Wyatt." Taylor nodded.
"Cool. What's your favorite color?"
"Camo." I said automatically.
"That's not a color." He laughed.
"Yes it is." I huffed crossing my arms. "What's yours?" He put
his hand to his chin and tapped it.
"Well I don't really have one but I could have to say camo, or a
real color which would be blue." He leaned back on the bars
putting his chin on his arms."Okay what is your favorite flower?"
"Easy a pink carnation." He raised his eye brow. "I like it
because it is beautiful. Also for what it means." I said huffing
at him. He cocked his head to the side.
"What does a carnation mean?"
"Well it matters what color you have. I like the pink one the
best." I shrugged.
"What's the pink one mean?"
"So if I was to give you a pink carnation what would it mean?"
"It would mean if you gave it to me 'I'll never forget you'." He
gave me a thoughtful nod. "What's your favorite flower?"
"Come on I'm a guy I don't have a favorite flower." He scoffed. I
pouted at him. "Next question." He smirked.
"How many siblings do you have?"
"Well there is me and Skylar, my older brother Elijah, my other
older sister Lilly, and my little sister Maria, but we all caller
"How old are all of you?"
"Hey you skipped yourself. You suppose to tell me your siblings."
"There is me and Wyatt, than my little brother Dillon, and lastly
my little brother Bentley." I smiled. "Now answer my question."
"Okay Miss Bossy Blondie. Lilly is 25, Eli is 23, Skylar and I
are 21, and Ria is 15." He nodded. "What about you guys?"
"Wyatt and I are 18, Dillon is 8, and Bentley is only 2." He
nodded. "You saw Bentley when you where at the dinner."
"Yeah I remember. He is a cutie." He chuckled.
"So you're a marine?" I asked nodding at his t-shirt.
"Yeah, guess you couldn't tell with I first met you could you?"
He said rubbing his newly shaved head.
"I usually can but I guess you where different." I shrugged.
"It's not like I knew you were military either." He said smiling
"Well my Dad's a Gunny so I guess we were both off." I grinned at
"Sure what ever." He laughed at me as the door opened and Uncle
Rodger came in holding the results of my CT scan in his hands………
