"Violet?" Kate asked

"Yeah Mom" I yelled in a rush

"Can you get the car keys?"

"Yeah" I yelled, Running down the hall to get the keys and running to the car.

I overslept and was running late to school. When I got in the car I thought Jake looked odd.

"Jake" Screamed Kate, the car in front of them was turning and Jake ran right ahead not even stopping at the stop sign.

"I saw him okay Kate" Yelled Jake.

20 minutes on the road and they almost hit 2 cars. But suddenly we got hit bad. Kate ended up getting hit in the head hard. Jake was pushed against the steering wheel. I hit my head against the window hard. I twisted my leg and broke it. I ended up with amnesia. But I somehow remembered my mother. Kate.

"Violet" Asked a voice.


Suddenly all of the doctors and nurses came into the room. Checking my eye's, vitals, blood, everything.

"I'm so glad your okay" Lavender almost jumped with excitement.

"Me to but my head hurts"

My head really hurt. The only thing I remember is that I left my house and then everything is blank. What happened to me.

"Violet?" Asked Sage.


"Uh honey we have to tell you something"


"Sage lets not tell her till she's better okay"

"Okay we'll let you go so you can get some rest and then we'll tell you tomorrow"


I felt my eyes heavily drop before everything went blank I wondered if it was alright for me to go to sleep. I also wanted to know what my mother meant when she said "Just remember i'll always be watching."

"Violet can you come here"

"Yeah mom"

"Violet I know this is a little out of the blue but I just want you to know that now matter what happens i'll always be watching"

"What do you mean"

"Never mind that now lets go you have school and your already late."

I knew something was wrong with me because I was wake but then I wasn't. I could hear people talking but its like a blank space.

"Will she ever wake up"


What the fuck does that mean? Am I dead? I know I'm still breathing but I just can't wake up. What if I'm in a coma? Oh my gosh I am in a coma. I've never been in a coma before but my mother has. How did she wake up? Me!. She only did because of me. So I have to get out of a coma for myself. I hope this really works. It feels like 2 days that I have been in a coma.

*Day later*


"Hmm" I mumbled

"Oh my your wake"

So I guess I ended up coming out of my coma after all. Miracle right. Nope guess again.
