My eyes fluttered open, and I looked around the room. Light was shining in from the window, it took me a minute to realize I was in the hospital. I turned over to see Splendid sleeping on the side of my bed. I tried to call his name but my voice would project itself and I realized that there was a bandage around my neck.
I reached over and lightly tapped Splendid's shoulder and it took him a second to open his eyes and look at me. He quickly jumped up, "You're awake?"
I raised my eyebrow and tried to speak but I still couldn't, so instead I just nodded my head. I wanted to ask him what happened but I don't know how I would ask.
He hugged me, "I'm so glad you're awake."
I sighed and just wrapped my arms around him.
Just how long have I been out?
"Wait, I need to go get your mom!" Splendid said and ran out of the room. As soon as he left the atmosphere in the room got dark and heavy.
Flippy's voice rang in my head, remembering a dream that I had. Flippy had told me he was leaving for the war. But, now… I was wondering if that wasn't just a dream. Maybe, he came and told me and I had forgotten. I looked down at my arms and saw all the wires that were connected to me.
"Flaky?" My mother walked into the room, I looked up at her and smiled so wide. She covered her mouth and gasped as she saw me. "My baby's awake!" She threw her arms around me.
I hugged her back just as tight, "Are you okay?"
"Flaky." The doctor had entered the room now, "It's good to see you are awake."
I nodded, again. It was kinda getting annoying since I couldn't say anything.
"Can I ask you a few questions?"
I nodded, for the fifth time. I think the doctor had now noticed what was going on.
"Alright, Let me go get you a small whiteboard and then we can talk. He left the room again and I looked at my mother and Splendid. I wanted to ask them so badly where Flippy had went.
"Splendid, Thank you for staying in here and letting me know about everything." My mother had told him.
"You're welcome." He smiled, "Are you feeling okay?"
I gave a thumbs up before the doctor walked back into the room with a white board and black expo marker. "Alright, Do you know what happened?"
'No.' I wrote down.
"Alright, you tried to kill yourself." He lightly spoke, "If you were unaware of how, you cut your throat and that ended up with you being in a coma for a few months."
I just stared at him with wide eyes, 'Months?'
"Yes, Months." I don't know of why but I think your mother and Splendid would know.
They both tensed up and looked at each other, Splendid was the one to tell me, "Uh.. B-Before you tried too, Flippy had informed you that he was going to war?" There was a strange tone in his voice but I couldn't recognise what tone it would belong to.
So, it was true. I felt tears in my eyes, 'So, He was drafted?'
My mother raised her eyebrow but nodded. "He came to visit you sweetie."
I started to lightly cry, My mother lightly rubbed my back.
"We are gonna keep you here a few more nights to make sure you don't try to harm yourself again and to make sure that is healing well. He smiled, "I will give you some alone time with your family."
I nodded, 'Thank you.'
"Oh, and your voice should be back in a week or two." He smiled before leaving.
Mom and Splendid tried to talk to me but I was mainly hoping that Flippy was safe and sound.
