You live

You hear the distant wail of an ambulance. You're living! Why? You feel like you're going to die, anyway, so why bother with an ambulance? You can see the ambulance arriving. It stops. People come out of it. Everything starts to go blurry.

You see people. You look around. You're lying on a hospital bed, with machines beeping all around you. You try to lift up your head. AARGH! the pain!

Your eyes flicker open. You see a nurse bending over you. When she sees you're awake, she moves away.You see lots of people crowding around you. Your friends, your family.

'You can go home now,' says the nurse, helping you up. Your legs feel a bit stiff, so you wiggle them around, and sag.

'Careful, careful,' says the nurse. Your friends and family all rush up to help you.

Home! you think. Glorious home!

'I'm sorry,' says your Mum, as if reading your mind, 'you can't go home. You still have a doctor's appointment today, remember? Anyway, now that your in the hospital, you can get to the doctor's clinic very quickly. It's just around the corner. Come on.'

Noooooooooooooooooooooo................

The End
