I squinted till my eyes adjusted to the bright lights above my head. When my eyes came into focused , I noticed the white walls, and the thin bed sheets. How did I end up in the hospital? The last thing I remembered was Harry coming into the house, looking like he just got into a fight.
My mind went blank after that, my head was still slightly hurting. A light snoring came from my left, Louis was sitting in a chair with his head in his lap. I don't see how I didn't notice him before. I just wondered where my brother was?
I pushed myself up in a sitting position, then threw my legs over the side of the bed. I really had to use the bathroom. Quietly, I stepped off the side of the bed. Soon as my feet hit the ground my legs gave out under me. Which sent me crashing to the floor with a loud thump.
"Shit Kendall." Louis rushed to my side to help me up."Why didn't you wake me up?" he asked as he pulled me up off the cold floor.
"I didn't think I needed any help going to the bathroom." My voice came out hoarse, as pulled away from him to go to the bathroom. How long was I out for?
He placed his hands on both sides of my waist."You still should have woke me up." he mumbled. I sighed as he followed me to the bathroom.
"You're not going to follow me into the bathroom." I snapped, as I slammed the door shut. He was so not coming in here. Even if he wanted to make sure I was okay.
After finishing up in the bathroom, I hurried out when I heard Louis knocking on the door. He was waiting by the door for me, with a worried expression on his face. A familiar doctor was standing in the room, with a clip board in hand.
"Good morning Kendall." He greeted with a smile on his face, which I returned. He had been my doctor for as long as I could remember. I felt comfortable around him, and he happened to be one of the few I trusted.
"Marcus." I greeted. He visibly rolled his hazel colored eyes at me, before looking back at his clip board.
"Kendall I thought we agreed to call me Dr.Luxury when I'm working." He said as he walked over to the sink to wash his hands.
I smiled, as I sat down on the bed."I thought we agreed on not making me wear these hospital gowns." I countered as I pulled the covers up on my exposed legs. It was mostly because I caught Louis staring at them. He smiled at me as he caught my accusing glare.
Marcus sat down in his chair, and began the regular procedure. He checked my eyes, ears, and heartbeat. He made little notes on his clip boards as he did those things. And asked me the same simple questions, before he jotted something else down.
"So Kendall when was the last time you ate?" He asked, scooting back in his chair. He sat his clip board down on the counter, before turning back and looking at me.
When was the last time I ate something?"Is it bad that I don't remember?" I asked, with a small smile on my face.
He shook his head,"Kendall it's not healthy for you to go days without eating." he lectured me as he picked his clip board back up, and jotted my answer down."Your sugar is extremely low, which means you haven't eaten, or didn't eat enough. And apparently you haven't been getting enough fluids in your body."
"I've been really busy lately." I replied, knowing that I was going to get scolded for that. Marcus has known me since I was little, I guess you can say he's been like a father figure.
"That's not an excuse. If I have to come to your house and make sure you eat I will." He threatened, as adjusted the tie on his shirt. I knew he would make good on that. Considering the fact that he didn't live that far away from me. And him being Chaire's dad meant he could easily stop by my house when he was visiting them. Which he has done before in the past.
