Wheelchair Girl

When teenager Cassie Harris is on the way home from a date with the gorgeous Jace Fairchild, she finds things don't exactly go the way she wants them to. She wakes up in hospital to find she's been in a car accident and with the news that she's paralyzed from the waist down. With the help of her family and best friend Jessica Holmes, she finds that she can still live life to the full - even in a wheelchair. But, will she ever get to go on that second date with Jace? And will he ever fall for her?


1. Prologue


" Well, Cassie, I guess I'll see you tomorrow then?" Jace asked me, a small grin on his face. I knew that he'd enjoyed the meal out and had seemed to like me - I also knew that I'd be getting asked out on a second date. " Yeah, see you tomorrow. And, Jace, don't forget that damn English homework again?" I suggested teasingly. He laughed, gave me a quick kiss on the cheek and head towards his car. I watched him drive off before walking through the car park to find my own small, black Subaru WRX. I dug through my pocket to find my black iPod classic, switched it on and head straight for my favourite band - A Day To Remember. Humming the tune to 'The Downfall Of Us All', I made my way along a row of cars trying to locate mine. About ten spaces down, I found it. I looked through my bag quickly to try and find my keys. Once I found them I unlocked the door, got in and turned the engine on. After about five minutes the heat from the engine started to make its way through my body, replacing the cold chill of the January night that was once there. I put my car into drive and head off out of the big, cramped car park, iPod still in my ears.   As I passed McKensie Street, I began to feel weird - like something was not right - but I quickly shrugged away the feeling. I'd just had a good date with a guy I'd been crushing on for ages and I wasn't prepared to let anything change the positive mood I was in. After driving past the McKensie Road sign, I put on my indicator and turned left down Whitehall Road. Still glued to the song and glad that the date went excellent, I didn't really have much time to concentrate on the roads, so I didn't see the small, green car which was coming fourty miles over the speed limit towards me. Panicking, I swerved my car away from the car that I had seen and after swerving back to where I was meant to be on the road, another car which was driving faster than the speed limit hit me. I jolted in my seat, hitting my head against the windscreen. A rush of dizziness swept over me and I felt blood trickle down to my neck. Everything went in slow motion as I tried to unbuckle my seatbelt, finding that it wouldn't budge. Another jolt then surprised me as I felt something hit the back of my car. Again my head went forward and, this time, smashed the windscreen. More blood spilled from my aching head as I fell back against the seat. I tried the seatbelt again and was surprised when it budged. Instead of trying to open the door in a panic, I kicked the windscreen until enough glass had shattered for me to climb through. Not wasting any time, I made my way out the front of the car and climbed off the front. I made two step forwards before hitting the ground with a sickening thud. Darkness washed over me and my senses went dead.
