Where am I? Everything around me was white. I looked down at myself, and gasped. I was covered in bruises and cuts. I think my hand was broken, possibly my whole arm.
What happened? I remember driving down the road, thinking about someone, or something, I don't know. Then after that, it's like I don't remember anything else.
I looked around again. The room wasn't white anymore. There were about 11 people either sitting or standing in a hallway. All of them were crying.
There was a teenage girl with long dark brown hair hugging a teenage boy with curly hair. They were both crying.
Then there was a teenage girl with long sorta dark blonde hair hugging a teenage boy with blonde hair that had little hints of brown hair in it. They were crying as well.
There was a teenage girl with black, curly hair hugging a teenage boy with a quiff. They were also crying.
Then there was a teenage girl with long hair that looked like it had been dip-dyed hugging a teenage boy with short light brown hair. They were crying just like the other couples.
There were three other people. One was a teenage girl with black hair and highlights that was crying. Then there was an adult that I recognized as my mom.......I think. The last person was a boy who looked to be around 20 with brown hair and blue eyes. He looked to be the one who was crying the most, but why?
I don't know any of these people. At least, I think I don't.......
~~~~~ Madi POV
I was gripping Harry's shirt and crying into his chest and he was tracing small circles on my back. This can't be happening. My best friend CANNOT be here. She CANNOT be in the emergency room.
We got here a few hours ago and no one has said anything or stopped crying. The only thing we knew was that Aubrey was in the emergency room and was in a coma.
Apparently, she was driving and zoned out long enough for the car to swivel onto the other side of the road and hit another car. The poor guy felt like it was his fault.
"Are you all here to see Aubrey Batten?" the doctor came out and asked.
All of our heads shot up and I was standing in a heartbeat.
"Is she okay?" I asked, frantically.
"She's fine. She has a broken arm, some cuts, and bruises. She's asleep now and may not remember much of the accident. Shouldn't be anything severe."
We all nodded and I started to speed walk down the hall to Aubrey's room, the others close behind me.
I opened the door and there she was, her left arm in a sling, some stitches along her forehead, and some bruises here and there.
My poor best friend......
~~1 hour later~~
I was sitting by Aubrey's bedside, holding her right hand. Louis was on the other side, staring at her bruised and cut face with glassy eyes. Harry was sitting beside me, keeping me calm. Miss Amber was in the hall talking on the phone with Aubrey's dad. Amber, Liam, Sky, and Niall went to get something for us to eat. Haley was trying to get Louis' attention (we all know why). And Salina and Zayn were asleep. All was quiet.
"Babe? You should probably get some rest." Harry whispered in my ear.
I looked up at him. Was he crazy? My best friend in the entire world was in a coma and may not remember anything and he wants me to sleep? Not possible. What if she wakes up and I'm asleep? I want to be by my friend's side no matter what. I can't just decide to sleep while she's in the hospital. No. I won't sleep until I know that my sister is okay. Even if she isn't my real sister. We've been through thick and thin. When I got hit in the eye with a softball in 6th grade and went to the emergency room, she may not have come but she was busy. So, the next day, she made up for it. She got me a Hershey bar and a card. Whenever I needed to talk to someone, she'd be the one I go to. Not one day have we ever not talked to each other. She's been through everything with me and I'm not leaving or sleeping until I know that she's safe and sound.
"No, Harry." I whispered, "I can't. I'm not sleeping or leaving until I know she's safe and sound in her own house."
He nodded and kissed my head.
We all sat there for a while in complete silence. The only thing you could hear was the sound of the monitor.
I heard a moan come from Aubrey. My head immediately shot up as did Louis' and Harry's.
Her eyes opened slowly and adjusted to the light. She looked around, confused.
"Aubrey?" I asked.
She turned to me, still confused.
"W-who are you?"
