Waking Up in Wonderland

Hospital

Halo Thirteen: Hospital:

He could hear everything. He heard everything from the moment they put him in the ambulance up to this point. Now, he laid in a hospital bed with Evie standing outside his open door talking to one of the doctors.

"Will he be alright?" she asked the doctor.

"Yes ma'am," he replied. "He's recovered, but we'll have to keep him here for a forty-eight hour observation."

"Forty-eight hours?" Evie asked. He felt his stomach at those words. Something told him that that sentence would not end will.

"That's right, ma'am," the doctor said. "You are welcome to stay with him if you need to." He pleaded in his mind for her not to go. For he knows, the maze will come back and he will be forced to wander in his own darkness yet again. He wishes that he could voice his desperation to her.

"Alright," Evie said. "I'll come by in the morning." He dreaded hearing those words. He was going to be alone again. He tried to force himself to stay positive as he heard the footsteps walking over to his bed.

"You okay?" Evie asked.

Knock.

"That's good to know," she replied. She kissed him on the cheek. Her fingertips lightly pushed hair out of his blind eyes.

"I'll call my boss this evening and explain the situation for tomorrow morning," Evie went on. She turned and looked at her boyfriend.

"Are you feeling hungry?" Evie asked.

Knock. Knock.

"Want anything to drink?"

Knock.

Evie patted her knees. "Okay then. I'll go get you some water." He listened as her kitty heels disappeared down the hall. She's going to go home tonight. He wishes that he could tell her. Yet, he is forced into silence with the flood trying bust down the heavy scratched gates.

She gave him his water and a kiss on the forehead before she left.

"I'll see you tomorrow," Evie whispered. He longed to scream out to her to get her to stay. All he could do was lay there in his bed and listen as she and her kitten heels walked away. His stomach sank as he heard all of the lights go off in the hospital moments later. He knew what was coming next. He swallowed as the maze opened its gaping mouth to swallow him whole for another. But, he wasn't to be alone this time. He became aware of that when rubber heels walked into his room. His body went tense as they got closer and stopped at his bed.

A soft sinister chuckle filled his ears.

"My, my," a husky woman's voice with a Scottish accent buzzed around him. "Didn't expect to ever you again." There was a pause and chuckle.

"Not surprising, though. You and they are rather hard to kill." Her hot breath filled his left ear.

"Do you know who I am? Of course you don't. You can't remember a single thing. Heh. You can't even remember your own name."

Another chuckle filled the cold, sharp air. "This should be rather interesting. You can't really do anything to defend yourself. You can't see anything. You can't speak. You are just a helpless little baby."

Her fingertips gently brushed against his cheek. "The question is what can I do with you right now?"

Her fingertips brushed down to his throat. "Not to worry. You are in my hands for two days. That means I can do anything I want with you. And you want to know what the best part about that is? You can't do anything to stop me and I am on the late shift. So, nobody can come and save you. You are all mine to abuse in any way." Her laughter drew in more heavy pressure to his chest as he began breathing harder and faster.

Though he could not see it, but a syringe slowly dropped down to his mouth. The point almost touched the back of his throat just before it was pulled away. She played this game with him until she got bored in two in the morning.

She's not the only one with games to play with him.
