3. Waking Up: Nick
"When......think.....will..........up?" I heard someone say. My hearing was starting to come back to me. "Not sure. Ellis,.....check.....Nick." I heard someone else say. I think it was Coach. I heard footsteps coming closer to me. I opened my eyes a little so I could see the person's foot so I could tell who it was. The person stopped in front of me and I saw who it was. Ellis. Ellis wears workboots, coveralls which are half-removed with the sleeves tied around his waist, a Bull Shifters shirt, and a hat with a picture of a towtruck.
I moved my shoulder to adjust my rather uncomfortable position. "He's movin' y'all! He's alive!" Ellis shouted. I reflexed and covered my ears. Jesus, Ellis, how loud can you yell!? I heard running footsteps and felt a hand touch my back, which felt wet."Nick? Are you okay?" Rochelle asked. I gathered my remaining energy to say,"I don't know.""Can you move?" Coach asked. I tried to move but screamed in pain. It was coming from my stomach. I looked down to see a large scrap of metal lodged into my stomach. "Ugh......!" I groaned.
Rochelle panicked,"Quick! Get the First Aid kit!" Ellis ran to get the first aid kit. I put my hand on the piece of metal and tried to pull it out. Bad idea. I screamed in pain as the metal started letting blood pour out. "NICK!!" Rochelle screamed. Ellis came back with the First Aid kit. Coach grabbed the first aid kit and set it down beside me. "Ellis, Rochelle. Hold him down. He's gonna try to move around." Coach said. Hold me down? Oh, I don't like the sound of that. Ellis held my legs down while Rochelle held my arms down. "What're y'all doing!?" I shouted.
"Ssshhh." Rochelle said, trying to calm me. I saw Coach grab the peice of metal."Oh, no, no! No, no, NO!" I panicked. He started pulling the metal out. I screamed in pain at the top of my lungs."OW! OW! AAAHHH!! IT HURTS! IT HURTS!! OW!! AAAHHH!!!" I screamed. It hurt so bad, I blacked out and coudn't hear or see a thing.
