Lexi's pov

I woke up in a hospital bed. Ew it smells like death in this place. My mom was sitting next to me and she smiled when she saw I was up and awake.

"Hi baby. How are you doing?" she asked, with a warm smile. I smiled back.

"Good but my head hurts like crazy!" I said reaching up to feel it. I felt pain when I lightly touched it.

"Oh honey, don't do that." she said pulling my hand away.

"You got 13 stitches from hitting the counter top with your head." She said almost in tears.

"Mom I'm fine." I said. Then, out of the blue, my father walked in.

"Are you okay cutie?" he asked. At first I was thrown back because he went and wrapped his arm around my mom.

"Um. Yea. I guess." I said confused. 'What is going on?' I thought.

"I know what your thinking, What is going on?' right. Well your father and I got closer when you were in your coma so now we are all good and will be. We have also decided that, one, we would like Jack to come over for dinner one night-" I cut her off.

"Whose Jack." I remember him I just wanted to see their reaction.

"Well. Dr. Rorrey never said anything about memory loss. But he's your boyfriend honey." Mom said grabbing my dads hand. Then all the sounded Jack walked out in.

"Mom I remember who he is. I just wanted to see your reaction." I giggled.

"But as I was saying, before you chose to pull that pathetic prank," she chuckled. "We have decided that since Your brother has been gone for a while that it's time to get over it. Not that we will forget about him, but just not so... So depressed." She said with a smile.

"Okay. I agree but I have a question." I said. Mom nodded telling me to go on. "When do I get out and how long was I out?" I asked. Well that was more as two questions but oh well.

"Ok so u have been here for about a week. And u can leave when u want." Dad said with a smile. I'm so confused. One day, he's hanging out with sluts and now kissing my mom. Jack cleared his throat to signal he wanted to talk.

"Can we have some time alone?" I asked. My mom nodded and they got up and left.

"How are you feeling?" he asked giving me a hug. I hugged him even tighter. We stayed like that for a while and finally pulled away. I kissed his lips and he took dominance with his tongue.

"I'm doing good, but my parents want you to come over and have dinner with us one night." i said. I hope he will agree. But something bad i just realize, I wasted my vacation in a hospital. Ugh!

"Ya they already told me and i would love to come over one night." He said with a warm smile. I can't wait to get out of here.

"Hey do you know if my mom brought me any clothes to change into?" I asked looking around. He nodded and walked over to the little 'Visitor Chair' and grabbed some clothes.

"I can help you if you need help changing." Jack said as he helped me out of the bed and into the bathroom.

I giggled and said, "I think im good but if I need help I'll ask." I walked into the bathroom and closed the door slowing, waving to Jack like it was thelast time i would see him. He chuckled and waved. I closed the door all the way and turned the lights on. I looked like a total mess. I had bags under my eyes, my hair looked like a rats mess and i was so hungry it wasnt even right. I looked skinnier then what i did a week ago.

I finished changing and stumbled outside. Jack was standing there looking me up and down. He finally came back to reality and came over to help me. He put his hand on my wrist and lifted my shirt sleeve up. He finally saw them. My scars.

"Oh my god Lex. Why?" Was all he said. I shrugged. I knew the exact reason. At the time my family was falling apart. I had to get away somehow.

"Before I moved here, my life was complete shit. You don't understand because your family is perfect. Its not fair." I said and started crying. It really was. We moved from New York because Caleb. All of his memories were in that house. We alos moved because my mom got a job here, but that doesn't matter.(Note the sarcasm) If i could go back and save Caleb with the technology we have know, i would. We were best friends. I told him everything and when i say everything, i mean everything.

"So. Wanna do anything today? Lunch or dinner?" Jack asked me.

"Lunch would be amazing right now. I'm so hungry." I replied. We walked over to the rental car and drove back to the hotel.

"Why were my parents all the way here?" I asked. I hadn't thought about that. We were still in California so that means my parents must have flown down here.

"For you of course. Why else would they be here?" Jack commented as we drove off. "Where to eat?" Jack added.

"What about..." i thought about it. then it came to me with a smirk. "Pollo Tropical?" I looked over at Jack. He smirked as well and took a 'U' turn to go the other way. He turned the radio up and started to belt 'Amnesia'. I giggled and watched as he used is hand to make stupid gestures while locking his eyes on the road. I smile, knowing that I, Lexi, love Jack Dail.

"I love you so much." I told him. He grinned and we pulled up to the resturant. It was fast food so he just went to the drivethrough.

---After Ordering---

"Oh my god. This is amazing. " I said and Jack nodded, enjoying his food. I smiled as i watched a piece of lettuce fall from his mouth. He laughed and picked it up and eat it. I laughed as well.

"When will we get home babe? Im tired." I complained. I wasnt really tired i just wanted to have alone time with Jack while we are still in Cali. I think Jack told me leave tomorrow morning at 5:30 am. Ugh... I just want time... Alone
