Three weeks. Three weeks is how long I’ve been crying by my sisters hospital bed waiting for her to wake up. The night of the accident when I finally got picked up by my aunt and taken to the hospital, I heard the Doctors talking to my parents. They said that she wasn't drinking or breaking any laws, but she was hit by someone who was. A drunk driver that was going to opposite direction of her. I stayed home for the first few days, there was no way I was going to school bawling like a baby. Eventually I had to go back though, but the only thing that stayed on my mind, was getting to the hospital to see if Kenadie woke up yet.
I haven't even seen Jack recently, it hurt too much. The last time I talked to her, I was with him. I tried calling and texting, but once he picked up or texted back, I stopped. It made me feel like shit still. It wasn't his fault at all, he had no clue what happened until I told his a few days after she was in a coma.
Currently, I was in Kena’s hospital room sitting in the chair that was by the bed. I hadn't cried in a while, but I felt like I was going to any minute. My parents where getting some food, but I told them that I didn't want anything. I pulled the chair closer to my sisters bed and looked at her. She was still so cut up. She didn't have anything broken, but sever damage still done to her. There was a long cut with stitched going from the top of her forehead, all the way down to her neck.
I laid my head down and sighed. “Kena, please wake up.” I whispered and took her hand. “You’re the only one I can talk to anymore.I can't lose you.” I said and finally let out a sob.”You're one of my best friends, even though you're really annoying too.” I tried making myself laugh through my tears. I lifted my head up to wipe my face. “The doctor told me that you're getting better. You're healing and soon you can come back home.” I was going to say something else, but I heard a knock on the room door.
“Alex, honey, the hospital is closing.” My mom said from the door. I nodded and told her that I’ll be out in a second. My mom and Dad came over hugging Kenadie than left. I looked at her again. “I’m coming back, okay?” I said, I knew she could answer me, but I like to pretend that she could at least hear me. I hugged her and left too, following my parents out to our car. When I got home I went straight to my room to get my phone, I forgot it this morning. I opened it up, checking the messages. I only had four. One from Rian and three from Jack. I opened up Jack’s and smiled a little, I really wanted him with me right now.
I waited until around eleven pm when my parents were sleeping to sneak out. I just went out the front door since they were asleep. I walked across the yards to Jack's house and knocked on the door. It took a couple knocks, but eventually the light turned on and I saw his face in the side window. I smiled at him and he let me in. “Hey, Lex.” he said. I ignored the hey and went straight to kissing him. I started to play with the elastic round his pajama pants. I slipped one of my hands inside, tugging on his member. Jack put his hands on my shoulders and pushed me away a little.
“Alex, I don't think we should, you know, when you're like this.” he told me. I still didn't listen though, I wanted a distraction. I didn't care if it would hurt, we already slept together once. I started to kiss him again again and place my hands around his neck keeping him close to me, that's what I wanted. Just to be close to someone right now.
“Lex,” he sighed against, but stopped him from talking.
“Please, Jack…” I said just barely above a whisper. He didn't say anything, so I started kissing him again. His hands finally rested on my hips and lead me upstairs to his room. Our clothes were discarded and we were making out heavily on his bed, just touching every part of each other we could get our hands on. Lust clouded everything that I was thinking before. It was like some dream right now. I heard to faint tear of the condom and him pushing in before I was lost in my own world. Our bodies rubbed together, making me warm. His kissed sending tingles all over my body. It was hard to pick out what we were really doing. We were passionate, but it wasn't just sex either.
I was sitting up in Jack's bed around four am. We both fell asleep right after we finished last night, but I didn't sleep long. I wax lost in my own thoughts. I was so confused and hurt. I out a heavy breath and choked back a sod. I felt Jack move around and make a small noise.
“Alex?” he questioned, probably forgetting that I was still her. “Why are you awake?” he asked and touched my lower back. I didn't answer him though. “What's wrong?” he asked another question.
“Nothing, I'm fine.” I said in a shaky breath and let out another sob. I cursed myself in my head. I felt him sit up and his arm go around my shoulders. He pulled me into his warm. bare chest and rubbed my arm and then, I lost it. I was bawling into his chest. He tightened his grip on me and rocked me a little, like my mom did when I was younger.
“You’re going to be okay,” he said and kissed my head. I looked up at him, my whole body shaking.
“But what if Kenadie won't be?” I asked him. He looked like he wanted to say something, but didn't know what. He sighed and just brought me back to his chest.
“Everything will be okay, I promise.” he said and just kept holding me. Thats all we did for the next couple hours. He held me against his chest while we laid down, until I calmed down. It wasn't very long until I felt his grip loosen when he fell asleep.
It was about six am and I knew my parents would be getting up soon. I got out of bed sliding my clothes back on quietly so I didn't wake up Jack. I found a piece of paper in one of his drawers and wrote a quick note.
‘My parents were going to be waking up so I left. I'm really sorry I was such a mess last night, but thank you. Text me later’ - Alex.
I signed my name on the note and went back downstairs leaving and making sure that I locked the door on the way out. The sun was started to go up so I quickly got in my house and back up to my room. Around seven I heard my parents get up and move around the house. I heard someone walking down the hall before knocking on my door. It opened slowly revealing my dad and I just looked at his from my bed.
“We are going to the hospital soon. Are you coming?” he asked. I nodded and stood up swaying a little. My dad came in catching me so I didn't fall. “Alex, did you sleep at all last night?” I shook my head, blinking slowly. “How much have you self the past few days?” he asked me when he walked me back to my bed and sat down. I shrugged my shoulder, unintentionally rocking a little.
“You’re not going with us like that.” He told me and got up. “Sleep, and when you wake up your mother or I can bring you down okay?” He asked and I nodded again. I laid down and he rubbed my shoulder before leaving and closing my door. It wasn't long until everything was dark and I was finally getting that sleep that I've been craving the past three weeks.
My phone woke me up around three pm. I had no clue that I slept that long. I unlocked my phone answering before even checking who it was. “Hello?” I asked in a groggy voice and yawned.
“Alex, its your mom.” I heard her say on the other end. “She woke up.” my mom said and I sat up quickly, widening my eyes.
“What? Really? When?” I asked standing up and pacing around my room a little.
“About an hours and a half ago. I was going to call you sooner, but we wanted to be sure.” She said and I felt like things were okay. I was more than happy, I was ecstatic. My sister was okay.
“When can I come up there and see her?” I asked into the phone eagerly.
“The doctors don't want anyone up her right now, at least not until all the test are done. But he did say that she was able to come home in a few days.” my mom explained happily. I can believe it, she finally woke up.
