16. Hospital

My eyes opened and I saw a spinning white room. I heard distant voices talking and small beeping. My head looked up, and then plunged back into darkness.

 

...

Later

 

 I left the darkness behind, and in its place came a bright light. Several people stood over me, strangers. Then finally a voice I recognized, Cassie's. I tried to sit up but, as I did so, the room began to spin again, so eventually, I was forced to lay back down. My throat felt hoarse but I managed to choke out a few words.

"W... Where am I?" 

I heard a rush of breath and air rushing past bodies as someone moved to grab my hand. I forced my eyes back open and there was Cassie with a wide smile, rosy cheeks and relieved eyes. I closed my eyes again and Cassie squeezed my hand. I felt my mouth creep into a smile.

"Hospital. You've broken a few fingers and then I think you fainted in shock." 

This voice wasn't Cassie's, it was Verity's.

"Why is she here? Its her leavers day. Isn't it?" I thought. 

"I only just got here in time to see you wake up!"

That time was Cassie.

"Why has she only just got here?"  As if she could read my mind, Verity answered my unspoken question.

"They wouldn't let Cassie ride in the ambulance, and, they only just let me in the back with you. Cassie walked the entire way."

I managed a small smile, Cassie walked all the way for me...

Cassie walked the WHOLE way here!?

Panic was rising in my body, the beeping echoed louder, getting faster and faster.

"Verity, whats going on?" Cassie asked more paniced than I was.

"Harry! Calm down, breathe properly!" Verity said sternly -trust Verity to be the only one not to panic.

Once I regained control over my minor (major) panic attack I could finally ask the question that had been eating away at me.

"How long have I been unconcious?!"

"Aound 8 hours."

"Oh" Was all I could say. A few moments of uncomfortable silence passed, Verity sat down in the window seat and Cassie went to get us all drinks.

I was discharged from hospital later that day, on the condition that I stay at home and, rest for afew days.
