In the remote village of Dedham a old myth about a man hanging himself on a tree in unusual circumstances is popular amongst the village. On Halloween 1902, Alice and her friend Alexis are late to the church, they see a shadow thinking it's just an adult running home to get something. But was it? Strange things happen and it seems as the myth is playing out in front of them. Will this kill them bboth? or not.....

23. Medicine

After a few minutes or so, the nurse wiped away the last remaining tears that fell on to her pale face. The wiped tears left behind several streams ; glistening in the bright sunlight that shone through the large and thin glass. The bright light elegantly fell onto my pure white skin, heating it up to a temperature that I was comfortable with. The pure happiness this warm heat gave me made me smile and rest back into the plumped up pillows that sat up straight. While I was becoming comfortable in my bed , the middle aged nurse looked as if she was checking some kind of rota. I guessed the rota had different medicines allocated for different times of the day. There was a few minutes where there was silence, just silence. The only sound that could be heard was a few croaking birds ; screaming cursing words to each other. I tried to see if they were visible from the large Victorian gothic style windows that lay to the right of me but the only sign of them that I saw was a few little scratches in the sky above the Dedham parish church tower that was at least five miles from the hospital. As I turned my attention back to the nurse I noticed that she had a large syringe filled with a pale blue liquid that had a few bubbles float around the contents.

"I will just have to place this into your arm. It's just a few minerals mixed together so you won't be become ill. Anyway, this will let you be discharged later on today as this is all the minerals you have lost in your six month coma. Not a lot of minerals though, but you have practically mended yourself though because it was self-induced, so basically some type of shock caused your coma."

I let the nurse babble on for another five minutes, by which point it had suddenly come to me that she was going to stick a eight inch needle into my arm. As some panicky thoughts swivelled around my head about the injection I felt a sharp poke in the top of my left arm.

"That's it. Now if your dad can just sign some papers that you can be discharged: your free to go! Well of course, come back if there's a problem. The doctor that has analysed this coma is on the letter, so if there are any problems just ask for him. I'll leave you two to it, see yo later!"

She said this before she gave some paperwork and a pen to my father. His eyes smiling, bright and happy.
