Chapter 20

Kelly woke up and only saw darkness.

“Matthew? Matt? Are you here?” Kelly asked.

“No he’s not, he went to get something to eat and shower and changed, I stayed in case you woke up,” Mitch said.

“Mitch?” Kelly asked.

“Hey sis,” Mitch said.

“Sis?” Kelly asked.

“That’s what you are to me now since you and my brother are married,” Mitch said.

“Mitch,” Kelly said.

“I’m happy for you both, you two are meant for each other, you two should have been together all along, I was an idiot,” Mitch said.

“What do you mean?” Kelly asked.

“I knew about his feelings for you, when you guys met, I could tell he fell for you, you and I weren’t that serious yet, I could have stepped aside but I didn’t want to lose you, I was selfish,” Mitch said.

“Mitch, I wasn’t sure of my feelings for Matt until he moved to Seattle, I don’t think I felt anything more than friendship for him at the time I first met him, I think I realized my feelings when I thought I was losing him for good,” Kelly said.

“I’m glad things worked out for the best, I started dating again,” Mitch said.

“Really? Who is the lucky lady?” Kelly asked.

“Her name is Lindsay, she was in rehab with me, she got out the same time I did and she was in for the same thing I was, she got hooked on painkillers after a car accident,” Mitch said.

“I would like to meet her,” Kelly said.

“When you are home from the hospital, I’ll bring you by, she doesn’t like hospitals much, she was in here for two months after her accident,” Mitch said.

“Okay I just hope I don’t freak her out looking like this,” Kelly said.

“You look great, Kel,” Mitch said.

“You’re just being nice,” Kelly said.

“I am being sincere, sis, don’t ever think you are hideous, beauty is on the inside more than the outside,” Mitch said.

“Okay thank you for being here with me,” Kelly said.

“You are a Jones, we are always here for each other,” Mitch said.

“There’s my beautiful wife,” Matthew said.

“Matt!” Kelly said.

“Hey baby,” Matthew said. He came over and kissed her hand. He sat on the bed.

“You guys work things out?” Matthew asked.

“Yeah we did, right bro?” Kelly said.

“Yes sis that’s right,” Mitch said.

“He even told me about his new girl,” Kelly said.

“You should bring her by,” Matthew said.

“He said she hates hospitals,” Kelly said.

“Yeah she spent two months after her car accident,” Mitch said.

“Where did you meet her?” Matthew asked.

“Rehab, she was there for the same reason as me, we got out the same time, we hit it off very well,” Mitch said.

“I’m happy for you bro,” Matthew said.

“Thanks bro, I better get going, I’ve got a date to prepare,” Mitch said.

“Bye Mitch, thanks for the talk,” Kelly said.

“You’re welcome sis,” Mitch said.

“Bye bro,” Matthew said. She heard the door close. She squeezed his hand.

“Matt?” Kelly said.

“Yes baby?” Matthew asked.

“Can you kiss me?” Kelly asked.

“Of course baby,” Matthew said. She felt his lips against hers. She cupped his cheek as the kiss deepened.

“Mmm I’ve missed that,” Kelly said.

“Me too baby, I wish I could hold you but the doctor said I couldn’t just yet,” Matthew said.

“I hate this, I feel so alone in this bed,” Kelly said.

“The doctor will be in to let us know when you can go home,” Matthew said.

“I wish I could be in your arms,” Kelly said.

“I wish I could have you in them,” Matthew said.

“How’s my favorite patient,” the doctor said.

“I want to go home,” Kelly said.

“Well we will see about tomorrow, we want to make sure there is no infection with your cuts,” the doctor said.

“What about my eyes?” Kelly asked.

“That may take awhile,” the doctor said.

“I hate this,” Kelly said.

“I know you do, Mrs. Jones, but we want you to heal well so we know what to do next,” the doctor said.

“Thanks doc,” Kelly said.

“Thank you doc,” Matthew said. She felt them checking her and changing her bandages. They asked Matthew to watch so he could do it once she was home. She heard the door close.

“Baby get some rest okay,” Matthew said.

“All right,” Kelly said.

“I love you,” Matthew said.

“I love you,” Kelly said. She went to sleep with Matthew holding her hand.
