12. Taking Some Time
I wake up dazed and disorientated. Where am I? What happened? I was suddenly aware of a sharp pain in my head and the right side of my body. I open my eyes fully and there were people on their phones looking at me with worry in their eyes.
"Yeah she's conscious, yeah she's bleeding heavily from her arm and I think her leg is broken." I hear someone say. I try sitting up but discover someone pushing me back down to the floor. "Hey hey hey, take it easy. You've been in an accident. You just wandered out into the middle of the road, you're going to be okay though, the paramedics are on their way." The man pushing me down said. He smiled at me and was holding a towel to my head. "Can you tell me your name?"
"Y/N, my name is Y/N. Where's my phone? I need to call my flatmate, she'll be worried." I said sounding kind of distressed.
"I'm afraid your phone wasn't as lucky as you, it got run over by the car." He said gently.
"Oh." was all I said, I didn't know what else to say.The worries of 10 minutes ago seemed so far away from the reality i was facing now.
The paramedics came and took me to hospital, apparently I was very lucky and not many people would have survived what I'd been through or even come off with so little injuries. I had a broken leg, concussion and i need stitches in my arm, other than that I was fine. The hospital managed to get hold of Poppy and she rushed over to take me home.
We got back to our apartment and she sat opposite me and looked at me."Y/N, I think you should use this time off work to go and see your family. You can't work for a month or two anyway, you may as well go to see them. And it will distract you from Michael." I looked up and was about to disagree when she stopped me. "Y/N, I know you, I can tell you're upset, anybody would be which is why I think you should fly back to England and see your family for a bit. I'll still be here when you get back." I smiled and hugged her. I am so lucky to have a friend like her.
