I woke up I don't know how long later but I wasnt at home that much I knew. By the looks of it, I was in the hospital although I don't remember how I got here. The last thing I remember was making my parents breakfast and then nothing but darkness.
Oh shit, Dylan would have shown up to take me to school as I didnt get a chance to ring to tell him not too. I was going to have to come up with something about why I look this way. He couldnt know that my parents did this. We had grown close and I didnt want to ruin it all with this kind of thing. Especially when he finds out that its been this way a long time.
I finally took in my surroundings, I was in a private room and Dylan was what looked like sleeping on the couch. He didnt look to comfortable, I wanted to call out to him. Except I had a tube down my throat. Which freaked me out a bit. I went to press the buzzer to get a nurse or someone to help me but my arms were both in plaster. I guess things were slightly worse then I thought.
Well I couldnt move or talk so I guess I would just have to wait until someone realises that I'm awake. I wonder how long that would take. Not very long later apparently, about ten minutes later Dylan woke on the couch. I was glad I really wanted to know what was going on. He slowly got up and if I could have I would have laughed at the expression on his face when he realised I was awake. Before I could register what was happening he was out the door yelling for a doctor.
He came back a few minutes later dragging someone who looked to be a doctor. He didnt look too impressed about been dragged by Dylan. Oh well I wanted answers.
Something felt different, I knew that I was most likely high on pain killers but something felt different. I couldnt figure out what it was though.
He went through the whole your going to be thirsty, this might hurt a little speech. I just nodded my head letting him know I understood, I just wanted him to hurry up so they could explain to me what had happened and what this feeling was. It was like a tingling throughout my entire body.
He finally took the tube out and I could breath on my own. I took a big drink out of the cup Dylan had hold of for me. Once I was sure that I wouldnt sound too croaky I decided to try and find out what was going on.
"So how bad it is?" I asked the doctor my voicing cracking slightly.
"Well you have a couple of broken ribs, fractures in both wrists. Bruising all over, luckily even though there is some bad bruising nothing has been broken or fractured. Its going to be a couple more weeks until your mostly healed. Your ribs could take up to four more weeks. You'll be on bed rest for a while to. You need to take it easy, and with Dylan here to help you I'm sure you will be fine." He told me.
Awesome bed rest. I wonder how well that will go down with my parents. Not to well I think.
"Umm whats the strange tingling feeling thats throughout my entire body?" I asked quietly, thinking they might think I'm strange for asking.
"Ah that could be from the pain killers." He replied not looking directly at me. He wasnt telling me the whole truth.
There was a part of me that wanted to argue with him but I was just too tired.I just wanted to go back to sleep even though I'm sure I've been out for a while. The doctor went over a couple more things before leaving me alone with Dylan. I wish he didnt get invovled it was going to be tough to explain to my parents. They were going to be so pissed. He took a seat next to the bed, looking at me carefully.
"Thanks." I said softly. Not looking at him, I had to admit I was embarrassed that he had seen me like this. I had tried so hard to not worry him, I guess everything comes out in the end.
"It's not a problem I just wish you would have told me sooner about how bad things have gotten." He replied, softly as well.
"I'm sorry. I know I should have told you, in fact theres something else I should have told you." I said softly, not letting the tears fall.
"Do you want to talk about it now or do you want to wait until later?" He asked, while rubbing my hand softly.
"Now. When I told you 3 months ago that, that was the first time it had happened. Well that wasnt entirely true. Its actually been going on since my sister. I didnt want to worry or upset you. And I was also scared that you wouldnt want to be around me anymore." I replied, letting the tears fall. I had tried to stop them but now I just couldnt.
I couldnt help it, after everything that had been happening my mind was in over drive and now that he was here and seeing me like this I couldnt hold them back any longer. I just hoped he wouldnt be too mad at me.
"It's ok. I knew back then that there was more going on then what you were letting on. And just so you know this doesn't change my opinion of you at all. Once the doctor gives the ok for you to get out of here which should be tonight if all goes to plan you'll be living with Dad and I. There's some things we need to discuss with you. Don't worry about them now we will deal with that later. Alright." He said, still rubbing my hand.
"I don't know if I can live with you guys my parents wont be happy. I dont want to upset them anymore." I whispered.
"It's ok, you dont need to worry its all been arranged." He replied.
I just nodded there wasnt much more I could do. If it was all planned then I guess it would be fine. He certainly had arranged this quick as I had only well I guess I had only been out for a few hours. We sat in a comfortable silence waiting for the doctor to come back. After about twenty minutes he finally returned. He explained that because I had been out for a few days which surpised me that I would have to spend the night. Just so they could monitor things.
That was fine by me. I'm not sure I was ready to leave just yet anyways. At least it was only one night that I would remember. I must have spaced out slightly cause the doctor was now talking to Dylan. I didn't hear the whole conversation but the doctor was checking to see if he would be spending the night again, so he could let the staff know. He told him he was. I would have to try and talk him out of that. He shouldn't have to spend the night here because of me. Although it would be easier to fall asleep knowing he was here. I really have missed falling asleep with him around. Not that I've told him that of course.
"You know it's ok you can go home if you want. It's not like I'm going anywhere." I said to him once the doctor left.
"I would rather stay here." He replied.
"Alright, I guess the company will be nice. Although I'm not sure how good of company I will be. I'm feeling rather tired." I said while yawning.
"That's ok, you get some more rest. I'll be here when you wake up." He told me, not making any effort to move.
"Promise?" I asked while dozing off.
"Promise." He replied.
