Waking up, I feel myself lying on something very hard. It feels different to the floor. Warm, and I can smell a delicious musk scent. I open my eyes and I'm looking at a very toned chest. North. I remember now. I fell asleep in his arms. He said he wouldn't leave, and he didn't. I don't know what comes over me but I snuggle back down into his chest.
"Baby?" His voice is deep and raspy from sleep. I move my head to look up at him, his eyes are half closed but the relaxed smile makes my heart beat that little bit faster.
For someone so big his hands are gentle as the run through my hair guiding it behind my ears. "How did you sleep?"
"Good. Thank you for staying with me." I look down blushing. Did I really sleep on him all night?
"Your more then welcome. Are you in any pain baby? I know it must have been uncomfortable sleeping on me last night. I just wanted to make sure you were safe." North has a slight blush creeping up his cheeks. He's so sweet.
"I wasn't uncomfortable, it was one of the best sleeps I've had. I just hope I wasn't to heavy." His fingers go under my chin raising my face until my eyes meet his.
"Not heavy at all. I wouldn't complain if we woke up like this more often." He gives me a cheeky smile and I can't help but giggle. "You still haven't answered my question. How are you feeling? And please don't play it down."
I quickly do a mental cheek of my body and tell him what still hurts. "My back and legs are still a little sore." I tell him quietly.
"I'm just going to text Dr Green and see if it's okay for you to have a shower, okay?" I just nod. I watch as he picks up his phone from the side table and starts tapping away on it.
I still haven't moved off of North and he doesn't seem in a hurry to let me go. His hand is still gently running through my hair and I feel like I could go back to sleep. A gentle knock on the door and Dr Green pokes his head inside.
"Good Pookie you're awake. Let's have a look at you and then we will see about getting you cleaned up. Gabe has gone out this morning and gotten you some fresh clothes and he has also asked if he can wash your hair. That is only if you're feeling up to it."
"Okay." I just nod my head. I can't believe how nice they all are.
Laying on the bed I have had to remove my clothes again. Sean, he asked me to call him that, has me laying face down and said he would just cut off the bandages since he will be throwing them out anyway. I asked North to stay since I feel so safe with him and I wanted someone to hold my hand.
When the bandages are cut I can see the look of pure anger in Norths eyes. I whimper, I don't want him angry at me.
"No, no baby." He slides off the bed onto the floor so he is eye level with me. "I'm not angry at you, never you. I'm pissed as fuck that someone could do this to someone so sweet and beautiful." He starts to gently kiss my forehead and cheeks. It relaxes me instantly.
My back, legs and chest are cheeked over and I'm told I still can't get the bandages wet. So I'm shown how to use the removable shower head to wash what I can of my body.
Wrapping my body in a big fluffy bath towel I hear a knock on the door and Gabriel's voice. "Sang, is it safe to come in?"
"Yes, Gabriel." He opens the door and comes in carrying a large orange sports bag. "Okay, move your pretty ass to the sink and let's do this." He has a large smile and is rubbing his hands together in what looks like glee.
Pulling several unmarked bottles out of the bag I look at them and question what they are. "My own special mixture. None of that shit from the shops."
He shampoos my hair twice and then rubs the conditioner in for about 10 minutes. If I wasn't standing I would have fallen asleep. After he has rinsed it out he towel dries and then blow dries my hair.
Feeling it, it has never felt to soft and silky. "Thank you, thank you so much." I can't help but hug him. So far these boys have been so sweet.
After dressing in the beautiful skirt and top he brought me I follow Gabriel into the lounge room where I find the rest of the boys. A few look very tired, I hope I wasn't the cause of their lack of sleep.
"Sang would you like to sit down. There are some things we would like to discuss with you." I forget his name but he is just as good looking as the others. I think he might be a few years older then me, but the way he keeps looking at me, it's like he knows my every thought.
I'm about to sit down when I get pulled into Norths lap. I don't mind at all. He's like a big teddy bear, and I feel so safe with him.
"Sang, I would like to introduce myself, I'm Mr Blackbourne. First I would like to know your full name if that's okay."
"Yes that's fine, it's Sang Sorenson."
"Miss Sorenson, I know this might be hard to talk about but would you mind talking about how you revived those.....marks?"
Oh god. Should I tell them. I've never told anyone. He told me no one would believe me. But they have all been so nice. They helped me. I didn't realise I had started to shake until North wrapped his arms tighter around me.
"Baby, shhhh. It's okay, we won't judge you. We just want to help. Please tell us. I won't let you go. I told you I would be here and I'm not going anywhere." North whispers in my ear.
"Okay but I think for you to understand I should start from the beginning...."
