Medic , Ch. 6Chapter 6I didnt see any harm in having a little fun.Feeling a little uneasy about the dream I had just had, I looked at the time. 5:30 PM the clock read, ticking ever closer to 6 Oclock with every second. The dream had kept me occupied for so long, I had never slept in that late before, it was ridiculous.I rushed through my getting ready routine, tossing my hair up in a pony tail, throwing my work outfit on, and so on. I managed to get done and ready to leave in 15 minutes.I was out the door, with my keys and everything. Thats a first. I thought to myself as I jumped in the car and took off. The road wasnt as pleasant as most days, covered with drivers who thought of themselves as the best driver there.Arriving at work, I realized that I was late. I wasnt the only one who realized this
my boss had, too. At least you showed up, he muttered as if I couldnt hear him. I sighed and clocked in to begin my duties
Medic, Ch. 5Chapter 5There was no evidence.You always fall for things like that. I heard as I turned my head to see who I least expected: my dad, crouching next to the bench with his arm around me.I thought you were traveling I said, shrugging his hand off of my shoulder and inching away.On business, yes, but your aunt called me and I came as soon as I could. He walked over to the empty seat next to me and sat down.My father had always been on business trips as I grew up, so we werent too close. I dont know why I acted so coldly towards him, but it snuck into my voice like venom, Why do you care?She is my wife, that might have something to do with it. He sighed.How did you get here so quickly? I drilled at him. I had just found out myself, so it should have taken him hours to get here.I just so happened to be on my way home for a visit when your aunt called.All I could think to say was,
Medic, Ch. 4Chapter 4I felt despair weighing heavily on my lungs.Good Morning, Sunshine! Someone sang. Matthew? Its 10:30 am and the skies are lovely. I opened my eyes to the blinding light of the morning sun. I tried and failed to gather my surroundings, they were just too alien to me. In the midst of all the confusion, it suddenly came back to me: I was in my car, with the oldies on, and the voice that sang to me was just the radio personality.I turned the radio off and stepped out of the car. Walking up the driveway, I tripped and fell to the cool concrete. Looking around to see what I had tripped over, my eyes landed on the newspaper. I blame the newspaper, laughing to myself, I got up and stumbled over to my house.I was reaching for the doorknob when my phone rang. Maybe Matthew is calling. I struggle to retrieve it from my pocket and with nervous hands I answered, Matthew? I received no answer from the other end for a
LonelinessO the joy of loneliness, the chance to be alone. The time to think. The time to ponder.O the pain of loneliness, The stinging of solitude. The suffering of isolation.Like a wound it hurts me, with no aid to cure.Like a pillow it soothes me, encourages dreams and more.Like a knife it stabs me, and tears into my back.Like a blanket it protects me, and shields me from the world.
Medic, Ch. 3Chapter 3I cant leave Matthew now, I dont want to.I dropped my phone. How had I forgotten? Well I guess it must have been pretty easy to forget being in the hospital and all
I am at the hospital. I replied.The hospital?! What happened? R U OK? The message read.I chuckled at the panic in the message, and sent my answer: Yes. Nothing really. I am mostly here for a friend.Not 2 sound rude or anything, but couldnt that wait? Really? Did you just ask me to ignore a friend in need? I dont ignore you when youre in need do I? I was on my way to help you with your needs when a person with greater needs showed up in my life. Needs, needs, needs
I am sorry, I just cant make it today. I cant leave Matthew now, I dont want to.There was no response from the other end. I waited, but I knew what this had come to: The silent treatment. The only thing coming from that phone were cold shoulder wave
