"Ouch, that hurts" Ashley hisses in pain as the doctor pokes her ribs. "Ohh, that tickles!!" Ashley squeals. I chuckle as Michael leans against the wall. "I think you need to have an x-ray, is that okay?" The doctor asks turning to Michael. "That is fine" Michael nods. "This way Miss Hood" The doctor says. Michael and I help Ashley onto the x-ray table.
We look at the x-ray screen with the doctor. Some of Ashley's ribs are a darker colour, what does that even mean?
Ashley gets out of the x-ray thing and sits on the chair. "Well Miss Hood, the good news is that none of your ribs are broken or fractured and you will not need any protective gear. The bad news is that they are bruised and you will have to be more careful around stairs" The doctor says. Ashley nods. She said that she tumbled down stairs. I can't believe she is still protecting Calum, after what he did. I suppose, a brother is a brother, and he is her twin.
"Thank you sir" Ashley says standing up. The doctor nods and Michael, Ashley and I walk to Michael's car. Michael drives to Ashley's and Claum's house. We all get out the car and recognisation of the place registers on Ashley's face. "No no no, I am not going in there" Ashley shakes her head. "Come on Ashy, there's food in there" Michael tries to bribe her. Ashley sighs. "I don't know...I mean, Calum's in there" Ashley bites her lip. "How about Ash stays with you" Michael suggests. I glare at him. He just winks at me.
"I hate you" Ashley sighs, giving in. Michael chuckles and follows her inside. I catch up to them and lock the door behind me. "Ok Luke, let's see who's better you or me" Calum grins as they play a video game. Ashley's hands form fists, her nails probably digging into hands, ouch, that would hurt.
"I believe that is Ashley's" Michael says standing in front of the tv. "Atleast you know stuff" Ashley smiles joining Michael. I skip intonthe room, feeling left out. "Now I'll take that back" Ashley says unplugging it. She picks it up. "Those are yours though" she adds handing Calum and Luke the controllers. "Wait, no that one is mine" Ashley says taking it from Luke. "I'm off to bed, nighty night" Ashley hugs Michael and starts walking upstairs. "Ash, we made a deal. go" Michael orders. I wave slightly and follow Ashley upstairs.
I sit on the edge of the bed awkwardly. Ashley walks out of the en suite in an over sized t-shirt and basketball shorts. "You can sleep there" Ashley smiles taking a cuddly toy from the bed. "Where will you sleep?" I ask. "Here of course" Ashley grins jumping onto a pile of bean bags. "Ouch. I forgot about my ribs, eh oh well" Ashley shrugs, pulling a blanket over her. I chuckle and go into the room I was given, to change.
I change into a pair of trackies and some random, comfy shirt. I go back to Ashley's room and turn the lights off. "Good night" Ashley whispers. "Good night" I smile and fall asleep.
