2. One Year On

“What do you mean you can't diagnose her?” my mum, shouted down the phone. “But there must be something wrong.” My dad and I sat on the sofa quietly listen to Mum’s argument with the hospital.

 

After about half an hour Mum finally put down the phone. “Bloody idiots.” She mumbled under her breath. “I give up,” My dad said with a sigh. “We can’t just give up, Kevin. We need to find out how our little girl survived that…”

“Shhh.” Dad hushed “Hayden, pumpkin. Do you mind leaving the room for a minute?” I nodded as I went upstairs to my room.

 

 I knew they were talking about what happened to me. It’s been a year now. After the police arrested the man who tortured me, they rushed me to hospital. The doctors didn’t find anything wrong with me, but kept me in for a week just in case. Since then Mum and Dad have been trying to find out how and why I survived.

 

I could hear them down stairs shouting.

 

“This is Hayden we’re talking about!”

“Lisa, just let it go.”

“No Kevin! I won’t let it go. Our only daughter should have died in hospital last year. But she didn’t! I want to know why!”

“I know Lisa, I want to know too.”

 

Then everything went quiet as Mum started sobbing. I laid down on my bed and sighed As I laid down I started to feel tired. My eyes grew heavier and heavier. Then I finally went to sleep.

 

“Hayden?” Mum whispered fifteen minutes later. I rubbed my eyes and sat up straight. “Honey, I've just got a call from the hospital and they said they’re going to send a man over to talk to you.” Dad said. “About what?” I asked curiously.

 

“About what that man did to you.” Mum replied softly. Then I started to remember what happened. But only by voices in my head.

 

Tell me how to reverse it.

I told you I don’t know

You silly girl. Tell me! Now!

 

“Mum!” I shouted. “Kevin! Get her a glass of water!” Mum cried as I started to kick and scream. “Please! Don’t hurt me!” I wail. “Don’t worry. I’m here. Everything’s going to be alright.” Mum comforted me. Dad came back from the bathroom with a glass of water and gave it to Mum. Mum handed it to me as I calmed down.

 

Mum and Dad hugged me tight. I hugged them too. I often had panic attacks like that. But once it was over I knew I was safe.
