It's heaven slap bang in the middle of hell

My eyes were closed and I was dizzy and disoriented. Something happened. I knew it. That irritating beeping noise was getting on my nerves. I wanted to rip the wires from my face and scream. I managed to flutter my eyes open.

I was in hospital. Oh great. Hospital was something I never really liked. It smelt of blood and wherever you walked there would be injured. It was excruciating.

"Mum...where's....where's Daimien?" I croacked. She was lying on one of my hands on the right side of the bed.

"Oh." She cried. And kissed my forehead. "Your ok! I thought you were..." She cryed. "Oh, Daimien's outside. It's strange, the man only hit your side of the car..." She mumbled.

"Mum, it wasn't a man...It was something else, I want Daimien mum." I whispered, tired.

"Ok, we'll talk about it later love." She kissed my forehead again and went to get Daimien. He walked in. Only a small cut on his arm. That didn't compare to how I felt.

"I'm so sorry." He whispered walking over to sit by the hospital bed I was in.

"This wasn't a human was it?" I asked him.

"What are you talking about? Huh? It was a man love, he crashed into your side of the car."

"It wasn't, it was something... don't worry you wouldn't understand." I replied, exasperated.

"I'm so sorry, it's unbarable to look at you like this. To see myself basically perfectly fine, and to see you, ten times more injured than me. I wish I could swap with you. I wish I was the one who got injured."He looked down, ashamed.

"You don't mean that." I said.

"I do." He replied taking my hand. "Forgiveness is all I require." He said.

"I don't need to forgive you, you didn't do anything." I replied.

He looked down. "I did." Then he let go of my hand and walked out of the room. I reached my hand for him ack but the wires pulled me back. I cried. I loved him. He couldn't do this.

I wanted this to make sense. That creature. It was out to get me. It was coming. And I knew it wasn't a shadow. It was something totally different to that.

The End
