Broken Sparrow

Verity is young nineteen year old girl, with her life laid out before her, but her life seems to have already ended. The boy she was with since she was fifteen has made her life a living hell, however, her heart belongs to another, but the feral punishments that will follow if she goes with him are unimaginable. People thought London was a city of dreams and prosperity, filled with promise, but now the only promise she is filled with is a nightmare.

6. Verity

I was brought out of the abyss by a light being shone in my eyes, I could hear people's voices all around me, but they sounded muffled, like I was being smothered by a pillow. 

I heard Jay, I knew it was Jay by his deep and velvety voice. He was asking if I was, "Going to make it?", I just wanted to squeeze his hand and tell him that "Of course I was going to be alright."

But I knew that I was far from alright. It felt like my lungs were pierced with millions of pieces of shard glass, and the breaths I took in felt non-existent. I knew that the numbness of my body wasn't a good sign, I couldn't feel my body at all, just the pressure of the paramedics examining me. I wanted to stand up, and shake away the pain, brush away the glass and hold Jay. The distress in his voice was painful to ignore, I wanted to help him, despite my pain.

I was lifted into the air and placed carefully on a stretcher, and into the wailing ambulance. Their touch was so subtle, handling me like a fine china, as if they made one wrong move and I would shatter. 

His voice was so soft, "Verity, can you hear me?" It took all my strength to master a nod towards the paramedic. "Good. You're going to be taken to hospital, okay?" He grunted as he hauled himself into the ambulance, and proceeded to strap me in. The pain made me cringe, and I gave out a cry, like a wounded animal. "I'm sorry, I'll try to be more careful. I'm going to give you some morphine, it'll get rid of the pain. Hold still."

All I remember is the needle piercing my left arm, and I fell back into blackness.
