I had been at the hospital for 24 hours now. Jake had woken up once, panicking, after they stitched him up. The nurse gave him some fluids that made him fall asleep. I hadn't left his side for more than five minutes. I was curled up in the hospital chair next to the bed when I heard someone enter the room. I looked up to see Faye. I sat up straight in the chair and attempted to wipe away any make up that had been running down my face. Faye sat down by the door and we just sat in silence. Faye was the only one who hadn't been here to try and push my out the door. She knew I needed to be here. The beeping of the heart monitor was the only thing heard.
"You okay?" she finally asked. I looked at Jake's pale face and then to Faye.
"Yeah." I said with a nod. She nodded and looked at Jake.
"When did the doctor say he should wake up?" she asked. I smiled a small smile.
"Anytime now." I answered. She nodded and stood up.
"I'm going to get something from the cafeteria. Want anything?" she asked me. I shook my head.
"Not right now." I said. She turned and walked out the door. I looked back to Jake and sighed, wishing he would just wake up. I leaned back into my chair into a comfortable position, well as comfortable a hospital chair can be, and closed my eyes. I wasn't planning on going to sleep, but my eyes fluttered close and everything went black.
I felt someone watching me. It didn't make me feel uncomfortable like it has been. Ever since the thing with the witch hunters, if I feel someone staring at me I feel panicked. I opened my eyes and met Jake's blue ones. It took me a minute to realize he was awake. I jumped straight out of my seat and over to the side of the bed. I wrapped my arms around his neck.
"Ow, Cassie." He groaned. I pulled back, mumbling sorry over and over, but he grabbed my hand to pull me back towards the bed. "Good to see you too." He said smiling. I smiled back.
"How long have you been awake?" I asked. He looked at the clock on the wall.
"Maybe an hour." He said.
"You should've woke me!" I said. He laughed.
"It was the first time I got to see you sleep all week." He said, winking. I laughed. "You seemed tired. I wasn't going to wake you." he finished. I nodded.
The rest of the day, I stayed right in the same spot, talking to Jake. I had actually missed his stubborn, confident, arrogant voice. The nurse came in to get him cleaned up and brought him some food. The doctor said he would be able to go home tomorrow morning.
"Cassie, go home." he said. It was getting late and he wanted me to go home and actually sleep.
"No. I'm staying here. It's just one more night." I said. he groaned as I went to sit on the chair. He grabbed my arm and pulled me back towards him. He slowly slipped over to one side of the bed and pulled me towards him. I sat on the bed and slowly, making sure not to hurt him, laid down and placed my head on his chest. He had his arm wrapped around my waist. I fell asleep, listening to his heartbeat.
The next morning, after getting Jake up and into his own clothes, we were ready to go home. I was at the desk in front of his room, signing the papers, when arms went around my waist. I looked up to see Jake lay his head on my shoulder.
"Jake, you're supposed to be in the wheel chair." I said. The doctor didn't want him walking around to fast until the stitches were completely settled. I felt him shrug as he continued to snuggle into my neck. I finished the papers and turned around in Jake's arms. He pulled his head up to look at me. I smiled and lightly kissed his lips. He smiled against my lips and I laughed. I lead him back to the wheelchair and he frowned.
I finally got him to the car, helped him in, and started for his house. We got there and he insisted on walking. I didn't object. He hadn't walked in two days. I grabbed the bags out of the car and headed for the door. I got him upstairs and into his bed with no problems. I was planning on going home and letting my mom known everything was fine and then have dinner with her, so I knew he would be bored. I had everything he would need on his bed. TV remote, charged laptop, phone, and some water on the side table. I went over to my house and my mom was in the kitchen, fixing dinner.
"Hey." I said when I reached the counter. I sat down on the stool and she smiled at me.
"Hey. Hope you're hungry." She said. I laughed and nodded. "So, I guess Jake's home if you're here." She said. I nodded.
"Yeah. If it's okay, I was going to take some over to him once we are done." I said looking at the food. She nodded.
"Of course." She said. We sat at the table and ate. I talked about my friends, Jake, and school. She talked about work and her day. I missed these times with her. After dinner and helping mom with the dishes, I put some food on a plate.
"I'm going over to Jake's." I told her. I walked out the door and saw that Faye and Diana had driven up and parked in front of Jake's. I got to his door and met them there.
"What are you two doing here?" I asked.
"We were going to check on Jake. Make sure he is okay." Diana said. I raised my eyebrows, but nodded. I walked in and threw my keys on the side table. I got confused glances from Diana and Faye, wondering why I was so comfortable here. I walked up the stairs and entered his room. He looked up at me and I smiled.
"Hey." I said as I went to go sit beside him. I handed him the plate. "I knew you would want something besides hospital food." I said. He smiled and nodded.
"Thanks." He said as he kissed my cheek. I smiled and looked towards the door, seeing Diana and Faye enter. They looked around his room.
"You aren't going to find any weapons or traps for you in here." I stated sarcastically. Diana scoffed and Faye let out a tiny smile.
"So, Jake, how are you feeling?" Faye asked. He nodded.
"I'm good thanks." He said. Diana took a step forward.
"I don't know why we are here. You betrayed us." she said.
"I don't know why you're here either. Jake saved your life. I would be grateful if I were you." I hissed. She rolled her eyes.
"You're not innocent either, Cassie. You were one of them too! The night we found out Jake was, you just kept on lying. Saying you didn't know he was and that you were there for us. You were working for them all along." She said. Jake could tell my anger was coming and he grabbed my hand.
"You know, I suddenly don't feel like having visitors." He said in a dark tone. Diana looked scared but Faye nodded.
"Good night, Jake." Faye said as she ushered Diana out the door. I sighed and closed my eyes. Jake wrapped his arm around my waist and pulled me towards him. I turned to make it so I was leaning on him with my head on his shoulder. He kissed the top of my head and I suddenly felt better. I looked up at him and he smiled.
"I love you." I whispered. He looked at me with shock in his eyes, but it quickly faded.
"I love you, too." He whispered back. I smiled and kissed him. His arm tightened around me, pulling me closer to him. My hands went into his hair. I shifted closer to him and he pulled away, hissing in pain.
"I'm sorry!" I said as I pulled back to look at him. He shook his head and looked at him.
"Stupid scar." He hissed. I laughed and lightly kissed his lips once more, before laying down with him. We spent the rest of the night watching movies and talking. I wasn't sure when the witch hunters were going to come or what they were going to do, but I was sure of one thing. I loved him.
So, yeah. Too much school work. It's distracting me from my stories! Lol But I did manage to make another chapter in Unexpected Life. Yay! Haha anywayy, let me know what you think.
