"Chloe?" My dad sat on the edge of the bed with his hand on my knee "Chloe, darling- you can't keep ignoring him."
I rolled over slightly, with a blank expression on my face "I can and I will." I rolled back onto my side, and stared at the hospitals white wall "Just tell him I'm not up to seeing anyone." I mumbled into the pillow, which was still slightly damp from my tears.
"Chloe, he knows you're lying." My dad sighed softly, still pressing the conversation even though I was sick of having it.
"Fine then." I threw the blankets back and got up abruptly storming across the room and throwing myself in an armchair, trying to get away from him "Go tell him the truth." I pointed an arm out in the direction of the door "Tell him I never want to see him again! Tell him I'm done. TELL HIM I DON'T CARE!" the heartache I was feeling was clear in my voice.
"He saved your life Chloe." Dad looked at me from the bed. Why was he even bothering trying to make me let Alec see me?
"He should of let me die." I wiped the tear from under my eye away and my face returned the emotional blankness. "He shouldn't of bothered."
"Do not say that."
"Fine then dad." I looked at him, "Tell Alec that I wish him and Gabby all the best. That I am well and that I thank him for saving me, so that I can experience losing him." anger boiled through my veins "I hate humans."
Dad looked sadly at me, the same look he had been giving me all week. "Just let him speak to you." he began to beg me again "Please Chloe, you are working yourself up over nothing."
"Nothing?" I arched an eyebrow "So my mate isnt married to a human, he didn't choose that human over me. Daniel didn't dump me for a human? And I didn't just nearly die, while trying to run after a man, with the hopeless belief that he would choose me over his mate?" shaking my head bitterly "And to top that all off, the one who saved me is also the one who is killing me slowly."
"I can't talk to you when you are like this." Dad got up from the bed frustrated. "Ever since you woke up last week, you have convinced yourself that Alec doesn't want you." he slammed a fist down on the small table next to the hospital bed "When in reality it is fair from the truth. He has stayed up here every day Chloe since your operation, and you haven't let him see you ONCE!"
"DON'T YELL AT ME!"
"He isn't stupid you know." Dad looked at me with pure anger "He knows, you don't want to see him and you're hurting him Chloe- I hope you're proud of yourself."
I didn't say anything to dad, as he left the room slamming the hopital door behind him. He could yell at me all he wants, but the truth still stood- Alec was with his mate.
Running my hands through my dry hair. I wasn't helping myself by thinking of Alec, it was only making my healing slower. Because I was draining my emotions.
Looking slowly up at the closed door, was Alec out there? Has he really been here all week, just waiting? Getting up from the chair, trying to ignore the shooting pains that were running up my back, as I moved.
Placing my hand on the door knob, I twisted it and stuck my head out into the hallway- it was empty. Opening the door up and walking up the hallway, all the rooms doors were closed. Looks like I am not the only one who likes privacy.
Though I do admit I was just trying to keep people blocked out.
Finally reaching the waiting room, I closed my eyes briefly before walking in- preparing myself. Opening my eyes, sure enough there was Alec. Sitting in a corner chair, his head in his hands. Guilt began to bulid up in my stomach.
