Wake up in a hospital
I awoke to an annoying beeping sound. I just wanted it to stop so I could go back to sleep. I opened my eyes to see what was making the sound but was immediately blinded by the brightest lights in the world. I sighed and tried to roll over but was stopped because of the pain all over my body. I opened my eyes again to see that I was in a strange room like a hospital.
My ankle was wrapped up in a cast. Just as I started to panic and woman walked through the door. She saw me and the smile on her face grew. “You are awake! That is great! You’ve been out for almost two days.”
I knew my face held a confused look. So many questions ran through my head and without even noticing it they started coming out of my mouth. “Who are you? Where am I? How did I get here? What do you mean I’ve been out for almost two days? What the heck is going on?!”
She stared at me shocked by my outburst. “My name is Emma and I am the pack doctor. The Kings son brought you in the other night, you passed out due to the pain coming from your ankle which was broken in two places.”
The only part that sucks in my mind, however, was that the king’s son brought me in... Robert... He was the Lycian from the woods. Before I could say anything else a girl about my age, maybe a little older, walked through the door. She had long brown hair and blue eyes We made eye contact and she started bouncing up and down, clapping her hands. “Oh my gosh! You’re finally awake! This is so exciting!”
Did I know this girl?.... “Uhhhh I’m sorry but do I know you?”
She raced over to me. “No you don’t but my name is Olivia! I’ve been waiting so long to meet you! My brother will probably be here any second now that you are awake.”
I had a feeling I knew who she was talking about but I had to hear it be sure. “Your brother?”
she let out a little laugh “Yea I’m Robert’s Older sister!”
Just as his name left her mouth the heart monitor next to my bed started beeping fast. The doctor rushed over and shut the machine off. They both looked at me but I just stared at my hands not making eye contact. “Is there any chance I don’t have to see him?” I still didn’t look up, but by the gasping sounds, they made they were shocked by what I had said.
Olivia reached out and grabbed my hands. “Why don’t you want to see him?” I still couldn’t bring myself to look up. When I opened my mouth to speak nothing came out so I just shrugged.
“I guess I can tell him you are tired and don’t want any visitors but I can’t promise that he won’t try to see you.” I just slowly nodded my head. She stood up and walked out the door along with the doctor.
Now that I was alone I looked around the room looking for a way to slip out without anyone noticing, sadly there were no windows and there was only one door. Plus by the look of my foot propped up and all the machines hooked up to my body, I just couldn’t walk out of here. I’m stuck here and I hate it. I know Robert will show up at any minute... Sadly there is nothing I can do about it.
Just as the thought ran through my mind the door opened up and in he walked. Olivia was pulling on his arm trying to stop him from coming in but it didn’t seem to phase him. I kept my eyes set on her, she looked at me with sad eyes as she mouthed ‘Sorry’ with that she turned and walked back out the door closing it behind her. I wanted to scream at her to at least stay not leave me alone with him but my mouth refused to move.
Here I am stuck in a hospital room with him. I wished I could stand up and run out of the room but I knew that would be a bad idea so I’m just going to sit here and stare at the floor. I could feel his eyes burning into me but I refused to acknowledge him. “Alisha, will you at least look at me?” The way his voice cracked almost made me look up but I stopped myself and kept my eyes planted on the floor wishing he would just give up and leave.
“I don’t understand what I ever did to you. Why do you hate me?”
I let out a dry laugh. “What do you mean you don’t understand!? My life was a living hell and you help cause it. Your freaking mutts almost beat me and make fun of me every day and you stood by and watched! You did nothing! You were the one who could have saved me but you didn’t! You did nothing! I hated my life!
I finally looked into his eyes as I said that I hated him. He had tears streaming down his face which shocked me but it didn’t change anything I hated him and I always would.
“I’m so sorry Alisha, I never wanted to hurt you that’s why I never laid a hand on you but standing by doing nothing is just as bad... I’m so sorry Alisha”
“Sorry doesn’t make up for years of bullying.”
" I know it doesn’t and I know nothing will make up for it but I’m going to try. I will do anything for you Alisha. You are my mate and I know you hate me but I love you and I will never stop. I’d do anything for you Alisha.”
There is nothing he can do, I will never love him back. “You’ll do anything for me?” He looked hopeful as he quickly nodded his head. “Get out. I don’t want to see you. I want you to leave.” The hope in his eyes vanished as he dropped his head and turned to the door. He was about to close it when he turned to me. “I love you Alisha and one day you will love me back. Just wait and see.” With that he closed the door.
