I woke up in a small room. Everything seemed like a blur. I saw a tall figure talking to a girl, Michael? What is he-, oh.. Yeah.
"You're awake" Michael said rushing over to me and leaving the nurse.
"Wh-what happened?" I asked.
"You fell" Michael said.
Yeah, in love with you. "Oh.." I looked around the room. "I'm in the h-"
Michael rubbed my cheek with his thumb.
"You must be confused... the doctor said you were concussed."
I felt my cheeks heat up at his touch. No Alex stop.. You can't be falling for some one again after Kai. I sat up a little and locked eyes with Michael. "What happened with you and Luke?" I asked.
He sighed. "I'll tell you when I'm ready, I don't want to talk about it right now, it hurts too much."
"Oh, well, if you need anything I'm here for you Michael" I smiled wrapping my arms around Michael and pulling him into an embrace.
"You're the one who needs someone right now," he said.
"When did they say I could leave?" I asked pulling away.
"They'll have to run some tests, then you can leave."
My smile was meek and exasperated. He gave me a big grin. "You're a klutz."
"I am," I said, half laughing, half crying from the throbbing in my skull.
Michael was wonderful. He ushered the doctor in to see me and made sure I passed all the tests. I didn't tell the doctors how badly my head felt. I lied. I wanted to get out of the hospital as soon as I could.
"Well, let me get dressed" I laughed a little.
"You're mum dropped you off some clothes" Michael said pointing to the duffle bag.
"Thanks" I smiled painfully, grabbed my black skinny jeans and a plain light blue shirt, and headed to the bathroom that was connected to the room. I came out and found my white converse shoes.
"I'm taking you home" Michael said.
"Okay" I said smiling, once again feeling the pain.
The drive was silent, not awkward but.. Silent. I checked the time, 7:28. Yay, dinner is soon! Michael pulled up to the house and walked me to the door.
"Sorry you fell" He said.
"It's not your fault" I laughed.
"I know, I just feel guilty" Michael said hugging me.
"Hey, it's okay. I'm fine see" I said. My head hurt pretty bad. There was nothing I could do about it.
Michael smiled. "Well, call me if you need me" Michael said and turned around but I grabbed his wrist.
"Wait.." I said.
He turned back. "Thank you.." I said and kissed his cheek. "Oh, no problem"
Michael smiled with a light shade of pink on his cheeks. Was I really making him nervous? Was he as nervous as I felt? I felt my cheeks heating up too. I unlocked the door and Michael pulled away and saw my host Mom and my host siblings and they hugged me.
"I was so worried!" my host mom said.
"I'm fine, Michael took good care of me" I smiled. Sharp pain.
"Who's Michael?" Veronica smirked and I laughed.
"He's just a friend, don't get your hopes up." I laughed and Tyler did too. Tyler and Veronica are my host siblings. "Well, we ordered Chinese for dinner, mum has a date" Tyler smirked and my host mom playfully slapped Tyler's arm.
"And who was going to tell me this?" I laughed.
"I was, when you got back but Tyler ruined it so.. I'm leaving in ten minutes. The delivery guy will be here soon, be good. Oh, and Alex" Diana said, (Host mom)
"Hmm?" I asked.
"Michael is a pretty nice guy, invite him over so Tyler and Veronica can meet him" Diana said and I blushed a little.
The Chinese food came and I ate.
