The following morning I felt a lot better. My body doesn't feel as sore as it did yesterday and with all my clothes on you couldn't see any bruises. Once Charlie saw, when I served his breakfast, he mumbled out that I should go back to school today. This is the first good news I've had in a while. I've been pretty bored at home. School life isn't so good, but at least it's something to do.
Even more to my surprise, Charlie offered to give me a ride. One look outside and I found out why Charlie decided to be so nice. It seems good ol' Forks' weather is holding true. It's practically raining cats and dogs out there. As the seconds pass by it only seems like the weather is getting worse. If I walk to school, even with an umbrella, I'll get drenched in this weather. If I show up to school drenched when everyone knows Charlie could have driven me, it would make him look bad. So of course he would offer to drive me. His reasoning is bad, but I'm still happy that I don't have to walk in that weather.
Once Charlie had his breakfast in front of him, I went back to my room to get ready for school. I had it timed perfectly so that when I was finished getting ready, Charlie was done eating. So I went back to the kitchen to clean up while he got ready for work. Again, like clockwork, when I was finished cleaning Charlie was ready to leave. I grabbed my backpack and we both headed out the door.
The school really isn't that far from our house. Ten minutes, fifteen if we hit all the lights, and we are normally already there. Nothing really happens on our drives to school. Charlie and I never talk. He doesn't like to waste his time with me when he could rather be thinking of something important. I kind of agree with him, I would rather not talk with him either. Whenever we do manage to talk, I always end up making Charlie mad and that never turns out well for me. So not talking is definitely a good thing.
I passed the time by looking out the bleary window. With all the rain pouring down the window I couldn't really make-out what was outside. I could make out blobs of cars and buildings and the occasional poor person that was walking in this weather; but for the most part it was all blurred together.
I only broke out of my musings of the distorted pictures when I felt Charlie slam on his breaks. This happens on occasion when he thinks he can beat a yellow light then at the last second decides that he's not going to be able to so he slams on his breaks. This time though, it was different.
I looked to the front of us to confirm the yellow light, but instead only saw red. Thinking Charlie just wasn't paying attention, I didn't really think anything of it. At least I didn't until I saw how close we were to the intersection. Charlie must have been way lost in his thoughts because we were already almost in the intersection and I can feel the car starting to lose traction.
I turned to Charlie to see if he was worried at all, I would think he wouldn't be since he is the Chief of Police so he should be a good driver, but his face scared me. Total and utter fear was etched all over his face. I saw his eyes dart out his window and it was this time that I realized how slow time seemed to be going. Everything happened in slow motion but for life of me I couldn't make myself do anything but sit and wait.
Out of Charlie's window I saw a large SUV speeding right towards us. I doubt they were speeding, but neither our car nor their car, were slowing down, so to me they seemed to be speeding. I could only stare wide-eyed as I watched the SUV slam into Charlie's side of the cruiser. Doing the only thing I could think of to try and save myself as much pain as possible, I turned my head away from the soon to be shattering glass and did my best to brace myself for impact.
As I turned my head I caught a glimpse of a bright red convertible that I instantly knew to be Rosalie's. As I felt the car start to crush from the impact of the SUV I could have sworn I saw a flash of long blonde hair, but a flash is all I could see. The fear of my impending death or severe harm became too much for me and I couldn't stay conscious anymore.
Normally when I wake up, my eyes are instantly open. This time though, my eyes stayed glued shut, almost like they were afraid to open. I can feel a numbness encompassing my body. I'm sure if the numbness wasn't there, I would be in a lot of pain.
To my side I can hear machines beeping that clued me in that I am clearly in a hospital. But how did I get here? Charlie would never allow me to come here. Coming here would put him in too much risk to get in trouble; there's no way we would risk that. I don't want my dad to get in trouble. If he gets in trouble, I would have nowhere to live; I would be on the streets with no food.
As my thoughts increased in anxiety I could hear a beeping slightly increase as well. It took all my will power to calm down, but after a minute or two, I finally managed.
As my heart finally calmed down, I felt a cold hand cup my cheek while another cold hand took hold of my hand.
"She's awake." A voice said that I somehow instantly recognized as Rosalie's.
"I know." Answered another voice that I know belongs' Esme's.
How did they know I am awake? Why are they here? Why am I here? Why do I feel like my life is about to get torn apart?
A/N: I'm really sorry for the shortness of this chapter. The next chapter is really where the story starts. I won't give anything away, but I am excited to write it. I have to warn you guys though, updates will really slow down. I just finished writing the rough draft of my book and am now going over the edits; so I'm putting all my focus into that because I really want to get it published as soon as I can. I know it can take a while for publication, but I can at least start getting it sent to publications for an attempt to get it published. So yeah, sorry in advance for slow updates, but I'll try my best to not be too slow.
Second thing though, I have a poll up on my page. I just want to try and branch out from Twilight Fanfic, but I'm not sure where to branch out to, so that's what the poll is for. Can you guys please take it? Thanx.
