CHAPTER 6: Trapped – Part 1/3

I’ve been stuck in this bed for three weeks now, isolated and alone. I hadn’t seen Damon since the day I woke up in here. I haven’t really seen anyone, aside from the doctor and a nurse. It’s been very lonely, and I just want out of this place so bad; I just wanted to go home, but I was stuck here until my leg had healed.

As I lay there, sulking, the doctor came in for her regular visit. “Good morning, Amelia.” She said with a bright smile. She was always so cheerful and warm towards me, brightening the atmosphere around us.

“Good morning Ruth.” I had gotten to know Ruth quite well over these past few weeks, and she has been very good to me.

“How are you feeling this morning?” She asked as she began to check my vitals.

I pursed my lips. “Not too bad, I guess,” I said with a shrug of my shoulders. I was improving, feeling better each day, but my mental health was beginning to diminish as the days went on in solitude.

She tilted her head to the side, raising a brow. “Aren’t you excited?” She asked me.

My brows furrowed, as I thought for a moment, suddenly I remembered something that instantly improved my mood “Omg! I forgot; I get my cast off today.” Relief washed over me at the thought of this; I would finally be free from this room and free to leave this place, free to go home.

She smiled. “Yes, but remember, there is a chance that it hasn’t healed yet. When this one comes off, depending on the X-ray, another one may go right back on.” She said regretfully.

My excitement instantly vanished; I couldn’t stand the thought of being stuck here for another three weeks; I needed to get out of here and go home.

My face fell. “I know,” I said sadly. I could only hope that Ruth would come back with good news after my X-ray.

She placed a reassuring hand on my shoulder. “Cheer up; I’m sure everything will be fine. Your other injuries healed quite nicely and fast, too, so fingers crossed.” She held her hand up as she crossed her fingers with excitement.

I nodded and gave her a half-smile. I was not feeling very optimistic.

“I’ll send Trevor in to bring you down to the X-ray room.” She said excitedly.

I snorted at her upbeat attitude; I couldn’t understand how she was always lively and happy. “Ok, thank you.”

After a few moments, Trevor walked in with an extra pep in his step. “Morning, beautiful.” He shouted and was full of cheerfulness.

I chuckled. “Morning, Trevor.” He was worse than Ruth; I swear you could shit in his corn flakes, and he would laugh it off.

Trevor is the nurse that’s been attending to me and assisting the doctor. Honestly, if it wasn’t for him, I don’t think I would have gotten through some of this. He is so energetic, joyful, amusing, and just absolutely fantastic. He never ceases to make smile or laugh.

He propped his hand on his hip. “What are you still doing laying in that bed? Little miss lazy pants.” He said with sass.

I arched a brow. “Waiting for your ass.” I retorted.

He tsked and shook his head. “What would you do without me?”

I shrugged. “Parish,” I said with a smile.

Over the past three weeks, I had become very close to Trevor; he visited me every day, some days more than once, making sure I was alright, that I was eating, laughing and smiling. We talked for hours, and he would bring games to play together. It was never a dull moment with him around, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

“Come on, get your ass up. That bitch” He pointed at my leg, “Needs to go!”

I scoffed. “You don’t need to tell me twice.” I threw my legs over the edge of the bed; Trevor extended his arm out for me to grab onto and steady myself as I stood on my foot.

I wobbled a little, struggling to maintain my balance. “Come on, girl, you’ve got this.” Trevor winked at me. He was so encouraging, and I was beyond grateful for that.

One of the perks of becoming close to Trevor was he told me the truth, bits of it at least. Of course, there was only so much he could say to me without getting into serious trouble. But he explained that he is a werewolf, that everyone here is. They can shift at will between their human form and their beast form. They keep their kind a secret from humans and don’t harm humans unless there is a good reason for them to do so. They are a pack, a family, and Damon is their Alpha. Some of the information was overwhelming, but I loved learning about it, especially mating. How they are destined to find someone who is their perfect match, someone they would die for and love unconditionally. I thought that was beautiful and unique.

I was finally stable on my feet, sort of; Trevor and I then made our way to the X-ray room. Singing and laughing, all the way there.

Ruth removed the cast gently and then began to take X-rays. She left me in the room while she went to examine the pictures. It started to feel like she had been gone for eons as I impatiently waited for her to come back. Finally, she returned to the room with a neutral expression on her face. My heart sunk, and my breathing faltered at the thought of my leg still not being healed.

I looked at her with wide eyes. “Well?” I anxiously asked her.

She closed her eyes and let out a heavy breath. “I’m sorry, Amelia.” She said, sadness lacing her tone.

My lip quivered. “My leg hasn’t healed, has it?” Tears were now threatening to spill from my eyes.

She perked up suddenly. “No, your leg has healed.” She smiled. “But now, we won’t get to see you every day.” She frowned like a child.

I clutched my chest and chuckled. “Oh my god! Don’t do that to me. I had thought that my leg hadn’t healed, and as much as I love to see you and Trevor every day, I am beyond sick of being stuck in that bed!” I said dramatically.
