I was still in the hospital a month after the accident. They wanted to make sure I could do everything like I used to be able to. I could already write, draw, get dressed, brush my teeth, and a whole bunch of other stuff. They said that if I continued to work at it like this, I'd be released by next week. I was excited. But, what would happen to Brandon?
"Can I go see Brandon, now? He told me to come see him after I was done. He's wanted to see me for a couple days, actually."
"Sure, you can go see him! Just make sure you don't get him too excited or mad or anything like that. It could either kill him or just make the doctor mad." Replied the nurse.
"Okay, thank you."
I walked to Brandon's room and knocked on the door.
"Come in. It's not like I'm in the shower or anything." Brandon said, laughing.
"Okay." I walked in. "What's up? Hey! You can sit up, now!"
"Haha! Yea, I guess I can. I've never noticed!" How I loved his sarcasm! I've missed it in the past few days I couldn't see him.
"You wanted me to come so I could finally answer, huh?" I asked.
"Well, it's taking you a month to decide, I'm guessing you've known how you're gonna answer for a couple days. You're just nervous, aren't you?"
I nodded. I was making a big decision. My first boyfriend! I was so excited!
"Well, you're right about me being nervous, and about me knowing for a few days. But, I don't think my dad will like it even if I did say yes. He doesn't like it that I'm going to have my first boyfriend at fourteen, and I quote, 'My little baby girl will never, I mean never have a boyfriend until she's eighteen.' That was actually exactly what he said before the accident. Seriously, my dad's really set on it."
"I know he is, but- Wait. Does that mean it's a yes unless your dad says no?"
"Yes! Awesome-I mean... That's cool." He said, crossing his arms.
"You don't have to act cool around me anymore, seeing as I'm your girlfriend. I'll be natural around you if you be natural around me. Okay?"
"Okay." He answered.
My first boyfriend! That was the happiest day of my life! First,
- I was so close to being released from the hospital.
- I now had my first boyfriend.
- I actually had a chance that my parents would let me date Brandon (They like him more than the other guys I knew.)
It was pretty clear they would let me date him. Sure, they'd probably make me go on the first date with parental supervision, but that would be nothing! I'd still be dating Brandon Harvey! Every girl in the school wished she could date Brandon! Now they would all envy me, and maybe ask me to tell them about him, since they know diddly-squat about him! They'd ask me to be in their group since I'd be popular. I mean, seriously! They wouldn't be able to deny that I was more popular than them! I was dating Brandon Harvey, for Christ's sake!
It's not that I'll be using him to get popular. I actually like him and want to date him, but it would also be a big improvement on my confidence to be popular in the biggest school in the country!
"Well, I guess I have to go, boyfriend." I said, giggling at the mention of the last word. Boyfriend!
"See ya later, girlfriend. Hehehe. 'Bye." Brandon was so cute!
I went back to my room and the nurse was waiting for me.
"Ah, you made it. I thought you had died in Brandon Harvey's room or something, you were gone for so long. Usually your visits are only five minutes long! This one was an hour long! Come lay in bed. I have to give you an I.V. Doctor's orders."
"Okay. I don't mind."
She put the I.V into my wrist and hooked me up to the heart rate monitor. My heart was already racing.
"Uh-oh. Girl, you better calm down. This I.V could make your heart unstable if you get too emotional. Chloe! Doctor! Come quick! She's having a seizure!"
That's all I remember before everything went black. I was having a seizure? I didn't even feel anything, so how could I be sure? It's all so confusing.
I'm starting to feel dizzy. Maybe I should go to sleep. Yes, sleep will help. It'll make me dream of Brandon and me. It'll make me imagine our future relationship. It'll make me stop having a seizure, I'm sure of it.
As I slowly fell asleep, the seizure got worse.
