Chapter 1: The News
Randall groaned his eyes squeezed tight. His whole body ached and barely had enough strength to lift himself up. He rolled on his side, curling into the fetal position. He felt himself laying on something soft.
He opened his eyes to see he was on a bed. He looked at it in confusion.
How did he get here? Last thing he remembered was walking to work. He tried to lift himself up but fell back on the bed. He flinched.
He looked around. He was in a white walled room. A TV was on the wall in front of the bed. Two chairs were standing a few feet away.
He looked at himself.
His chest and top left arm was covered in bandages. He was about to remove the covers when he heard the door open. He looked up at it.
The door opened to reveal a female purple monster with tentacles for arms, for stubbed legs, large hazel eyes behind blue glasses, wearing a doctor coat.
"Cheryal?" Randall asked.
She smiled and went over to him.
Randall looked at her.
"Wh-what's going on? How did I get here?" He asked.
"You don't remember honey?"
He shook his head.
"You've been in the hospital for a little over two weeks now."
"Two weeks?" He exclaimed, trying to sit up. He yelped in pain and fell back into his pillow. "How? I-I was supposed to be at work!"
"Honey, you were in a hit and run accident. The driver got away. But your friends have been visiting you nearly every day."
"Friends?" he echoed. He didn't have friends. Unless…she couldn't be thinking of his co-workers… could she?
Just then the door knocked and open.
Sulley's head poked in.
"Um are we allowed to see him?" Sulley asked.
Cheryal smiled. "Of course."
She stroked his bandaged covered head and left.
Randall looked at them. He frowned as they walked in.
"What are you idiots doing here? Come to laugh at my pain?" he hissed.
He grimaced in pain.
Fungus went up to him.
"Relax sir. You've been through a lot. You need to rest."
"So how are feeling Randall?" Celia asked.
"What am I supposed to feel? I'm tired, I'm in pain, I was in a coma for two weeks! How in God's name am I supposed to feel?" He snapped.
"Sir, please, Dr. Grove said…."
"To hell with Dr. Grove! I'm not wasting one second here and have my scores go down! I might as well be incontinent!"
Fungus shuffled his feet. "Well…"
Fungus let out a nervous laugh and grabbed the clipboard that was hanging next to the bed. He handed it to his scare partner.
"Promise you won't lose your temper?" Fungus asked him.
"No," Randall answered, looking at the clipboard. He face turned into a look of pure anger. "What?"
Fungus gave him a nervous smile.
"All of you out." He growled.
They all headed out.
"Not you Fungus! You stay put!"
Fungus immediately stopped what he was doing and turned around to look at him. Sulley turned around before he shut the door.
"Randall, are you sure…"
Sulley shut the door. Randall looked at his assistant with anger burning in his eyes. Fungus gulped as he looked at him.
"Care to explain this to me Fungus?" He hissed.
"W-w-w-w-well sir… you see…. When the car hit you… it kinda damaged your s-s-s-s-spine…"
"WHAT? What do you mean my spine is damaged?"
Outside the door the gang was listening in on Randall's and Fungus's conversation.
"Man… Randall isn't happy about his condition." George replied.
"How would he?" Claws asked. "Randall's whole life basically revolves around work. Can you remember the last time since Randall had taken a sick day?"
Everyone shook their head.
"WHAT DO YOU MEAN I'M WEARING DIAPERS?"
"And he just now finds out…" Mike replied, laughing.
Sulley scowled his friend. "Mike… Randall just woke up from a coma. He got hit by a car. His spine his damaged and…"
"I CAN'T WORK?"
"And he just found out that he can't work. Can't you at least act a little sympathetic towards him? He must be devastated."
And sure enough they could hear Randall cussing and yelling. Instantly Cheryal ran through.
"Excuse me boys." She replied running in the room. In the room Randall was so upset he didn't even notice Cheryal run in.
She had heard everything from when Fungus had called her. She knew that the only way he was going to calm down was by her or Emilia.
Emilia was a ten foot brown furred female monster with brown hair and blue eyes, her and along with Cheryal, had adopted Randall when he was a baby. They were married. A happy gay female couple.
Cheryal had pulled her son into a hug, shushing him gently.
"Randall honey calm down. Shh. It's okay. Shh…"
Randall calmed down a bit but he was still upset. Tears had started to form in his eyes. He didn't like crying and wiped the tears coming in his eyes. Cheryal gently wiped a falling tear from his cheek. She gave him a gentle smile.
Randall sighed…. He only hoped nothing could get worst.
