2. Chapter two

When I woke up it was dark outside, but my lights were still on. There was a watch on the right side of the bed that told me it was 4 in the morning. I had slept for 12 hours. I don’t remember sleeping for that long in a really long time. As I said before the beds were like rocks, so more than six hours of sleep was a lot in my head. The bed I was lying on was really soft. I tried to remember anything that had happened in this room, but I couldn’t. I remembered the room, but not being in it. It frustrated me. I wasn’t going to sleep again, so I might as well do something, I thought. I found a book and started to read it.

It was a children’s book, so I finished reading it after 10 minutes. There wasn’t much else to do. I started to count all of the books in the bookcase.  There was 136 in the bookcase. Then I counted dots on the carpet.  45 dots. It became a game, so I counted everything in the room­.

It was a quarter to six, so it was practically morning now. I went downstairs. My stomach was growling, but I didn’t know where the food was. When I came into the kitchen I saw a note stuck to the counter.

I went to work early.

There’s food in the fridge and in the left cupboard.

Jonathan goes to school half past seven.

Have a nice day (-:

I opened the fridge.  I remembered the breakfast, that I had gotten in the hospital. Oatmeal porridge. It tasted awful, but I had gotten used to it after a few months.  There were some eggs in the fridge.  I could make an omelet.  

I was eating breakfast, when Jonathan came down. He looked handsome even when he was wearing a wrinkled T-shirt. “Morning”, he said and yawned.  “Good morning. “I said. He walked over to the counter and sighed.  “Morning shifts. “He shook his head and mumbled something about making breakfast.  I offered him some of the omelet in had made. I didn’t know how many eggs I should have used, so there was enough for the two of us. He found a plate and ate in silence. I didn’t know what to do or say.” How is the school?” I asked. He laughed. “Boring. “I couldn’t imagine school being boring.  I had always love school.  Before the incident and while I was in the hospital. There was a silence between us. ”I better get dressed. Um… Are you going to be okay here? “He said. He sounded like he cared, but he wasn’t looking at me, so it was hard to tell. “I’ll be fine”, I lied.  I had no idea what to do here.  

After he left I washed the dishes. I had a whole day in front of me. I had learned how to spend time on doing nothing, but this was different. I started counting books in the living-room.  Then I counted forks, knifes and spoons. I counted everything. It was actually quite fun.  That way I learned where everything was too.

My dad came home a quarter past 3. He had gone home early to check on me.  I Told him that he didn’t have to do that, but now he was here, so there wasn’t much to do about it. “I’m sorry I had to leave, but the money doesn’t hang from trees”, he said. I nodded confirming.” There is actually a plant called the money tree, but there doesn’t grow money from it. It’s used for good luck, though”, I said realizing it was stupid when I said.  He laughed, but I knew he was just trying to make me feel comfortable.  I sighed.  “I know that things are going to be uncomfortable at first and I know that things won’t be as they were before everything, but you don’t have to make a big number out of feeling me welcome.  It’ll take some time, but it’ll all be alright”, I told him, not sure if I was talking to him or me.” I know”, he said.
