So here's another chapter! I really hope you all like it :)

Annabelle's pov

"So how'd it go?" Jax asked.

I was currently sitting in his lap in the waiting room we were sitting in earlier, before we met the doctor. I shrugged my shoulders and nodded my head, not really know how to answer him. Dr Tessler had been very thorough with her tests, I had gone through X-rays scanning my whole body, physical examinations testing joints and reaction times, question airs and even an MRI, these guys spared no expense.

He sighed and nodded his head.

"Annabelle, the doctors ready for you know" the receptionist told us, saving us from anymore slightly awkward one sided conversations.

As we made our way back into the doctors office I weirdly became nervous, what did she find out about me? It's like this woman knows everything about me and we've barely met, it's a strange feeling.

"So Annabelle, I've correlated everything together for today and determined there's nothing a bit of rest and plenty of food and liquid won't fix" the doctor stated and Jax let out a sigh of relief I hadn't realised he had been holding.

I just nodded my head and leant back into Jax, relieved she wasn't going to do any more tests on me and we could finally get out of here.

"Your quite malnourished" the doctor continued "So I'm putting you on a high calorie diet for a week or two until you put more weight on and I'd like to see you next Friday for a catch up to see how your getting on okay?"

I just nodded again and looked up at Jax, would he allow me to go on a high calorie diet? Back at that place I wasn't allowed to eat any food that wasn't leftovers. Sometimes they would purposely stuff themselves with the food I had put on the table for them just so I would have nothing to eat. They would tell me I was only allowed to eat when I deserved it.

I continued to stare up at the beautiful stranger that rescued me from the woods, could I really trust him enough to look after me? No one had looked after me since I was five years old.

"You okay little mate?" Jax asked, tucking a strand of hair behind my ear and out of my eyes, it was now completely dry and falling in soft waves framing my face.

I smiled up at him and nodded my head, deciding to trust him until he did something to make me not trust him. There was something about him that just made me calmer, more relaxed and I couldn't for the life of me figure out why.

"Thank you very much doctor, we will see you in a week" Jax replied and started to stand but the doctor quickly stood with us and stared at Jax as if she was trying to tell him something.

I looked up at Jax to see a slight frown on his face, what the hell was going on with these two? They stood there in silence for a few minutes, just staring at each other, before they both seemed to snap out of it at the same time. The hell?

"Before you go Annabelle, I have written you a prescription for a variety of vitamin tablets. Alpha could you please make sure she takes them once a day?" She asked, handing him a small piece of paper.

Why did these people keep calling him Alpha, his name was Jax wasn't it? Unless it was some weird nickname that I didn't know about.

"Of course doctor" Jax replied before taking the paper and walking out the room with a final nod from him and a small wave from me.

"Right, lets go home and get you some lunch then shall we?" Jax asked as we made our way through the hospital and to the car.

I stayed silent, not really knowing how to respond to someone who was offering me food.
