3. Chapter 3

I wake up. I'm not in my room. I'm in the hospital. I'm in a gown. The room is so white. I hear the machine mimicking my heart beat. It's annoying. It's just reminding me that I'm alive and I'm a foster kid. My ribs and my head hurt.
"glad to see your awake. Can you tell me your name?"
What?
"Ashley. Ashley Dawson."
The nurse looks at the clipboard.
"oh. Um. What's your age?"
"sixteen."
"can you count to ten?"
"yes."
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10.
"will you count to ten for me?"
"no. I can count to ten, but I don't want to."
"fine."
She continues to scribble on the board.
"when can I leave?"
"well you had broken ribs and some bleeding in your brain, so it might be a while."
"but I will be fine. Right?"
"I think so."
"so when can I leave?"
"it might be a while."
She is annoyed with me. I don't want to be here but I don't want to be at an orphanage. I hate this. Being stuck here. I want to be back at school.
"what happened to him?"
"who?"
"my dad?"
"well."
"he died."
A woman in a black suit walk in. I assume she is from CPS. She has a big clip board with many papers and files. I don't care for her much.
"so. I'm a foster kid?"
"right now you are. You are in the process of being adopted as we speak."
I'm stunned.
"by who?"
"a Mr. Evans."
"what!"
"yes. He said he would sign the papers as soon as possible."
"isn't there like some law against that kind of stuff?!"
"no."
Why would he do that? She looks at her watch.
"as of right now you are now Ashley Evans."
