Okay then, here's Chapter eight...

Her eyes were moving.

She felt like she was traveling through some foggy tunnel being pulled by a rope that was someone's voice. Her eyelids felt heavy, and she tried to make sense of it all. Then it hit her. The blood splattering on the wall when her mother was shot in the head, how it felt when-

"I'll be right back, just hold on." The words echoed through her head, but she couldn't comprehend them.

She slowly opened her eyes, only to close them again. The light was to bright. She wanted to ask somebody to turn it off, but she found she couldn't speak. Something was in her throat! She heard someone talking again. This time she opened her eyes and squinted.

"Don't try to speak yet, you have a breathing tube down your throat." The words were hazy, but she understood and nodded.

"You gave us all quite a scare there, Miss Glasston. I'm Doctor Griffenth. Now on the count of three I want you to swallow. One, two, three-" She did as she was told, and found it nearly impossible.

With the tube finally out, she took in deep, raspy breaths.

"Where?" Was all she could get out. Her voice sounded rough and scratchy.

"You're in the hospital, Miss Glasston. Don't try to speak just yet, you haven't used your voice for a little while. Give it time to adjust."

"Can I speak to you outside?" She finally became aware of another person in the room.

Whoever it was, paused by her bed for a second then followed the doctor outside. She couldn't make out any features, her vision was to blurry.

Sonny looked at the young man.

"Is she going to be all right?" The doctor smiled.

"It's going to be hard, but it seems your daughter is a fighter, Mr. Corinthos. Honestly, it's a miracle she woke up at all."

"Thank you." The doctor nodded and walked away.

Sonny stood outside of the room. Now that she was awake, what was he supposed to say to her? What was he supposed to do? His long lost daughter had been in a coma, and today she had opened her eyes.

Ugh, that was bad. I'm sorry. Anyway, I'm hoping to update a bit more now that it's summer. Thank you again, everybody.

Please review!
