I woke up later to the sound of voices. I opened my eyes and saw the boys. Paege was there too, and she and Liam seemed to be talking seriously until they saw I was awake.
"What is that bitch doing here?" I asked looking at her.
"She was just leaving." Liam said. Paege huffed and walked to the door. She stopped at the entrance.
"This isn't over." She said. She was looking at Liam but I felt like she meant it for me.
"How do you feel?" Zayn asked. He was sitting right by me. I wonder if he was there the whole time.
"Um, kinda sore. My neck is killing me." I said.
"Yeah, the doctor said you suffered severe whiplash." Niall put in.
"What else is wrong with me?" I asked closing my eyes.
"You're leg was broken in, uh, three places." Louis said. He stopped talking for me to take it in. I nodded.
"And you have quite the gash on your head from when the glass from the windshield cut you. And a concussion." Zayn finished. I opened my eyes.
"I'm lucky, aren't I." It wasn't really a question. More of a statement. They all nodded. I took a deep breath.
"You ok?" Niall asked. I shrugged best I could laying in a bed.
"How's the driver of the truck?" I suddenly remembered him. The boys exchanged glances. "And why'd he hit me?"
"Brandin, maybe we should tell you this later--" Lou began.
"No, I want to know now. Might as well tell me when I can't walk away." I said.
"He didn't make it." Zayn said quietly. I closed my eyes again. I killed someone. If I'd been looking at the road like I was supposed to this wouldn't have happened.
"He was texting and driving and crossed the line and hit you." Niall said. I opened my eyes. I killed someone.
"I killed someone." I said quietly.
"Don't think like that."
I got a chorus of denial. But it was true. I did kill him. I could have avoided this. I sighed and shook my head which hurt.
"When do I get out of here?" I asked.
"Doctor said a week." Louis said.
"We're going to leave you to sleep." Zayn said. "Get well soon, babe." I smiled at him.
"Thank you Zayn."
They all left after saying goodbye and I closed my eyes to sleep. But I couldn't.
Only one thing was on my mind.
I killed someone.
What do you think? Was the truck driver's death Brandin's fault? Hmm...
Love ya <3
