Love vs. Lust

Chapter 31

I woke up in the hospital with a sore throat and a pounding headache. I searched the room around me with my eyes but couldn’t understand why I was there. The last thing I could remember was celebrating my sixteenth birthday with my friends and now I am in this place. My head was swirling with confusion when a doctor walked into the room.

“Ah, I see you finally decided to wake up” he said jokingly. I smiled at him half heartedly.

“What am I doing here? What happened?” I asked still trying to piece everything together.

“You don’t remember what happened?” The doctor asked in a concerned voice.

“Well, I remember my friends being at my house, we were celebrating my birthday and then I woke up here” I answered. I went over the happenings of the day but it seemed hazy and like I was missing something. The more I thought, the more my head hurt.

The doctor told me to relax and take it easy while he scheduled some tests for me, apparently I was suffering from some sort of memory loss. He wouldn’t tell me what happened claiming that I had to recover fully before he could put me under that amount of stress. I had no idea what could have been so bad that he didn’t want to tell me and not knowing was driving me crazy.

About an hour later some nurses came into my room and wheeled me to another room where they did some tests on me. When they were done they wheeled me back to my room and got me some food. It was only soup but it hurt my throat as I swallowed it.

Later that night Shelby came to visit me. She looked really nervous as she sat down on the chair next to my bed.

“Will you please tell me what’s going on?” I begged. Nobody would tell me anything and I was really starting to get worried.

“I’m not allowed, doctors orders” she answered looking sympathetic.

“This is rubbish! Why won’t anybody tell me what’s going on. I can’t remember anything and where the hell are Conner and my mom?”
 I half shouted, my throat burning like it was on fire.

“Calm down please” Shelby begged, grabbing a hold of my hand. I took a deep breath and laid my head back on my pillow.

“I can’t take this anymore, I can’t remember anything, I have no idea why I’m in this stupid hospital and I don’t understand why my mom and Conner aren’t here with me. Please just tell me if they are ok” I pleaded.

“They are fine, Conner will be here to see you tomorrow, but don’t tell anybody that I said that” Shelby answered smiling at me wickedly.

“What about my mom?” I questioned.

“She’s fine, you don’t have to worry” Shelby answered.

“Then why isn’t she here?” I asked again.

“I’m not allowed to tell you but the doctor said that we will be able to tell you everything in a day or two. He just wants to make sure that you are stable before we tell you what happened” Shelby answered.

We sat there in an awkward silence for a while. We couldn’t really talk about anything since I couldn’t remember anything. When Shelby left a nurse came in and checked my vitals. I didn’t bother asking her what was going on. I was way too tired and confused, so instead I cuddled into my bed and let sleep overtake me.
