I had woken up to smelling fresh brewed coffee. I opened my eyes and I was in a twin bed with the covers on me. I was still in my same clothes, thank gosh so I didn't get raped! But my shoes were off. I got up looking startled and saw the man from the bar.
"Oh my gosh, where am I!!" I panicked and practically screeched.
"Hey, hey please let me explain" he said coming over to me trying to calm me down with whispers and to cup my mouth shut, which you should never do to girls because we'll I screamed. He backed up away from me and about a yard away.
"Ok, ok I'm not going to hurt you but please don't scream and let me explain I'll even stay over here I promise" he said and looked hurt but then shook it away. I just nodded and he took one of his chairs and put it where he was standing before.
"Ok first I want to let you know my name is Dylan. So, I'm thinking you probably have a lot of questions and I can help you but first just let me explain how I saw you so you don't think I raped you or anything ok?" He asked me and I nodded.
"Alright" he said and took a deep breathe and continued "so I found you at the bar and I was their because that's where I work, I had been bringing over someone's drinks when I saw you and you of course didn't look like you wanted a drink and it was the end of my shift, so I went up to you and I asked if you were ok and you said yeah and looked confused. Then I asked if you would like a place to stay or something like that and you said yes, I took you into my car and you fell asleep the instant I buckled you in and you have been asleep for two days and I swear I haven't touched or done anything to you besides take off your shoes" he said sincerely. I believed him and I kinda liked him, he reminded me if Harry in a way. I smiled at the idea of Harry in the park but then my smile faded because I remembered he slapped me. I shook away the memory and smiled at Dylan.
"Thank you and I believe you" I croaked and my throat was dry from not drinking or eating in two days. I felt like a mess.
"Would you like anything, and may I look at your eye because it really is swelling I promise I won't hurt you" he said in a innocent tone.
"Uhm sure" and just him reminding me of my eye the pain kicked in. He came over carefully like I was going to attack him. He had a face cloth in his hand and carefully examined my eye and he had a big hand but it felt better to know someone cared.
"You have it real bad, if you don't mind me asking what happenend?" He asked me.
"Uhm.." I had to think of a quick excuse. "A gang before had me surrounded me and they punched me when I screamed for help" half of it was true. Derek winced at the though my of it.
"By the way I didn't quite catch your name??.."
"Mela...Maddie" I said and recovered.
"Are you sure, you were going to say a different name before" he said.
"I'm positive" I said and lied to him "I just have a bad head ace" I said and made it look like it was in pain.
"Ok so I don't think I can do much to your eye so were going to have to go to the hospital" he said
"I don't mind but uhm do you mind if I could have like a shower and some new clothes please" I said gesturing towards my ripped dress.
"Oh yeah of course uhm you could borrow some of my sisters clothes because she left some behind when she lived with me" he said and got up and went into a bedroom I presume. He returned with light jeans and a navy blue dress that looked formal.
"Thanks" I said and sighed. I took the clothes and he showed me the bathroom. I locked the door behind me and realized I was a mess. The dress slipped off me right away, I didn't even have to try. I took of my under garments and washed up in the shower and washed my hair, scrubbing my scalp till it hurt. After I was done I out on my under garments and put on the clothes. I found my elastic on my arm and braided my hair into a ponytail and put my black sandals on again.
"Ready?" He asked me taking in my appearance. I realized he had changed into a blue v-neck t shirt and some jeans and work boots. He looked hot to be honest. But I let that thought disappear and nodded. He drove me to the hospital and it was silent.
"Have you thought about calling your parents?" He asked me. Oh crap! I totally forgot about them.
"Yeah but I think I should get this taken care of first I think" I said. And he nodded and we drove the rest of the way in silence. When we arrived the doctors had me go in right away because they said it could get to my head?.. They escorted me and had me change into one of their long johns. I didn't know what they were doing.
"Ok were going to have to put you to sleep alright hun?" Said a nurse and I just nodded.
When I woke up my head felt huge. Like I don't even know how to describe it. Derek was in here and he had his head in his hands. I sat up and he looked up and he was in tears. My face turned worried I could feel it.
"Hey are you ok?" I asked him and I could tell their was panic in my voice.
"Yeah" he said wiping away tears "the question is are you ok?" He asked.
"Yeah I'm fine" I said.
"The doctors want you to stay in bed once your stable and they have medication for you". He said.
"Ok thank you, do you think I'm stable" I asked him.
"Let's check" he said and a smile grew on his face and he came up to me and was helping me out of bed when the doctor came in.
"Woah let's take it step by step Mr. Collin"guessing that was Dylan's last name.
"Ok" he said and helped my sit back down.
"Maddie how are you feeling?" He asked me.
"Better" I lied.
"Good good" he said and wrote on his clipboard and then put it down and took my temperature.
"You seem to be doing better, I think your ready to go home" he said
"Thank you" I said and gave the doctor a small smile.
"All my pleasure" he said and walked out.
"Here's the clothes uhm the nurses said to give these to you" he said and it was the clothes I had worn when I showered.
"Thanks" I said. Dylan nodded and stepped out for a moment. I got changed and Dylan and I went to his house after. I wasn't sure what would happen next.
