Chapter 6- Twin Telepathy
I saw Hikaru's eyelids flutter. His eyes landed on me, "I'm not dreaming, am I?" I shook my head. He glanced around the hospital room, "Promise I'm not still in that cell?" I took his hand, "I swear you're not." He looked at the back of his hand. There was a drip there. "Why do I need a drip?" He looked back to me. "Er, they said something about being low in fluids." I leaned on my knees. Tamaki pushed open the door. "So what's the damage?" He asked. I picked up a clipboard that was sitting on the side table and read over it. "It says he's gone blind in his left eye, broken his left arm, two broken ribs, three brakes in his right leg as well as a sprained ankle." I cringed, "Ouch." I heard Hikaru give a little sigh next to me. "What's wrong?" Tamaki walked over and sat down. Hikaru rubbed his head, "My chest hurts." I looked up to Tamaki, "Can you get a nurse or doctor or something?" He nodded and walked out of the small room. I squeezed my twin's hand and leaned back in my chair. Please let Hikaru feel better! I thought.
I briefly closed my eyes. Please let Hikaru feel better! I heard that voice in my head. I felt a little yelp leave my mouth. Kaoru turned to look at me, "What is it?!" I glanced down at my hands, "Nothi—" "Don't lie to me." Kaoru cut me off. I looked back up at him, "Fine. I keep hearing your voice in my head, saying random things. When I was in that I'm-in-hell cell, I heard you saying stuff like 'I miss Hikaru' and things like that." I saw Kaoru's eyes widen and his mouth form a little 'o'. "Th-tha-ats been happening to me… But with your voice…" He trailed off. I gave a little gasp. "But… How could it?" I mumbled. Can you hear me now? I thought.
I covered my mouth with my hands. Can you hear me now? I heard that voice. Hikaru's. "H-Hikaru? Did you just think 'Can you hear me now'?" I gasped when he nodded. "How is that even possible?!" He said. I shook my head and rubbed my eyes, then smiled, "Twin telepathy. Ridiculous." He gave me a small smile. Utterly ridiculous. I heard it in my head. I rested my head against the chair. Then Hikaru gave a little yelp. My head shot up, "What is it?!" His good hand was clutching his chest, "It hurts." "Crap!" I stood up, "Tamaki!" His head popped around the door, "Gotta nurse!" He said and walked in. A nurse followed him in, "What seems to be the problem?" She asked. I pointed to Hikaru, "His chest is hurting." She checked a monitor and leaned down to his level, "How much on a scale of one to ten?" He winced, "Er, about six and a half?" The nurse frowned. She turned around to a trolley and took a little bottle off it. She popped the top off and put two blue tablets in a medicine cup, then handed it to Hikaru. I helped him sit up. He looked at me, "You sure it's okay to have?" I was confused, "Why wouldn't it be?" Hikaru rubbed his chest, "Well… She forced me to take something and it knocked me out, then she hurt me more." I felt like crying. My brother-no, more than that, my twin, my other half-had suffered so much thanks to that one person. Thanks to two people. Haruhi… And me. Me. Barely holding tears back, I nodded to him. He took a deep breath, wincing, then downed the tablets. I hugged him around the shoulders. The nurse left and Tamaki went home. I stayed in the hospital room. While Hikaru slept, I let silent tears fall. It was my fault Hikaru had to deal with all that crap. All my fault. I don't know how I could have stopped it, but I knew it was my fault. I felt my shirt getting damper as the night stretched on.
I know this chapter isn't all that long, but I've got writer's block (Refer to previous 'chapter'.) Still! Thanks to everyone who has stuck with me this long :) There'l only be a couple more chapters... But still!
