14. Where are we?
I open my eyes and see blackness I blink my eyes a couple times so my eyes can adjust to the poor lighting. Where the hell am I? I look down at my lap and I'm still strapped into my seat I look beside me and there's nothing. No seat, no Justin. JUSTIN! I undo my buckle and fall to the ground it's damp... The sun is rising I can see it now. I reach for my phone in my back pocket and of course no flipping service! I turn the flashlight on and shout Justin's name... Tears are filling in my eyes and my face is wet from tears I didn't realize I shed. I wipe my eyes angrily and shout Justin's name again with a sob. I look around shining the flashlight everywhere looking for more pieces if the plane and for Justin or the pilots. But nothing. I touch my forehead and wince. I pull my hand away and look at my fingers. Great I'm bleeding. I notice I have a few more cuts in my legs and my arms but I don't care my only concern right now is finding Justin. I shout again "JUSTIN!" Then I sit and listen in silence. I hear something. A very quite moan. He's in pain, a lot of pain. I rush off in the direction I heard it coming from looking around, searching for him. I keep running passing plane pieces. When I come to a stop when I hear a mumbled "Maddie" it sounded like it came from right beside me. I turn around and see a huge piece of the plane. I take a couple steps closer to it. Holy shit! "Justin, holy... I.." Dammit I'm lost for words as I run and kneel beside him running my fingers through his hair. He looks up at my and smiles a very dim smile. It makes my heart melt and I know I have to get him out from under this.. Thing. I kiss his forehead and stand up. I examine the plane piece. I think I can lift it up just enough so Justin can squirm his way out. I grab the side of the plane and lift it up. It doesn't even budge. Holy shit it's heavy. I try lifting it and pushing it over slightly. It moves but not much. I walk around to the other side. My head hurts. I rub my head and wipe the blood my jeans. I grab the other side and pull. I lean back using all my muscles. And fall right on my already sore ass. I stand up and look around. Shit, what am I gonna do? I back up to examine the piece better and pump into a tree. Me and my clumsiness. Ugh, I sigh in frustration and sit down against the tree with my head in-between my legs. I look around the sun is rising and giving more light and some heat. I put my head back against the tree, close my eyes and take a deep breath. If I want to get Justin out I can't panic. Ok Maddie think! I look around and see a very very long rope. I run over to it and examine it. It's tied to something farther down the trail on both sides. I take several steps and pull on it. It doesn't budge, it's strong. Then I remember something. I take of my left shoe and take out the insole. And see it, the dreadful thing that brings back many memories I don't want to remember. I take a deep breath and grab the blade. I saw the rope with the blade as fast as I can and after what feels like forever it comes apart. I do the same with the other side. I run back to The tree carrying the rope. I wrap the rope around the tree and walk as far from the tree and as close to the plane piece while holding the rope. I wrap the rope around my waist and tie it several times. I grab ahold of the piece again and lift. I grunt and lift it with every muscle in me. It lifts slightly "Justin try and get out or move!" I say behind clenched teeth. He does as I say and moves, it helps I lift it higher and he squeezes himself out with a loud grunt. I drop the plane piece and fall to the ground. And we lay there both, tired and sore. I open my eyes and look at him he's already looking at me. He's in a lot of pain I can tell. I'm starting to feel sleepier and sleepier, my head is spinning. My eyes are closing and I try to force the open but I'm defeated and everything goes black.
I look at Maddie, she has a very large cut on her head that stretches right across her forehead and is about a centimetre wide. My left leg and arm are killing! I watch as her eyes flutter open, then shut. I sit up and look around I stand up slowly trying to keep my balance but when I put weight on my left leg I fall and scream in pain. I crawl over with one arm and one leg to where Maddie dropped her phone. I then crawl around to her. I turn on her phone and no service. Of course. Dammit! I don't know what to do. I don't know how long I laid there looking at Maddie and the sky but the sun is up and Maddie is still out. Shit. I'm so stupid, what do I do. But then something catches my eye in the sky. Through the trees I see a rescue helicopter I drag myself out from under the trees trying to find an area without any trees. I stand up trying to balance and wave my arms in the air shouting as loud as I can "HELP, HELP, HELP!" Over and over again. They didn't see my I keep shouting and yelling when another one comes by I'm not sure if they say me or not but I keep shouting and waving my arms. But then I'm falling to the ground and before I could even stop it my eyes shut and I'm gone.
I flutter my eyes open and see bright lights. As I come back to consciousness I hear a beeping noise that is in time with my heartbeat. I feel sticky and hot. I open my eyes more and see bright lights and a girl in pink pyjamas it looks like. I looks again and it's a girl about mid 30's with a clip board and her hair tied up in a neat ponytail and I can see now that she's a nurse. "Hello, I don't want you to panic you are in a hospital in Stratford, Ontario can you tell me how you feel and if you are in pain and on a scale of one to ten how much pain you are in." I squeeze my eyes shut and open them again. My head hurts a lot. "I'm ok, my head hurts about an 8." I say I don't recognize my own voice it's scratchy and dry. "Could I also have some water?" She nods her head and smiles sweetly at me and heads out the door. I look around and see flowers and get well balloons. I squeeze my eyes shut. Why am I here? Why am I in Stratford? What happened to me? I put my hands over my face
