Chapter One- Wake Up


Voices. That's all I heard now. I couldn't tell who was who anymore…

Suddenly someone started talking from what seem to sound like outside of my room.

"How long has she been here?"

"About 3 years."

"…and why wasn't I told?!"

"We didn't want to distract you from your studies…"

"Someone should have told me!"

My already faint breath seemed to stop. I knew that voice! I could recognize it, even after what seemed like years of being apart.

It was Dylan. My brother. He was here!

I wanted so badly to open my eyes and run to him, but my body felt weighed down, like it was refusing to move to reunite with the only family I had left.

Dylan!

Dylan!

"…-lan.." my faint unrecognizable voice reached my ears. Funnily enough, I hadn't even felt my lips move.

"…Dylan…" Someone sucked in a breath, and footsteps that were close sounded like they were getting farther.

"Nurse!" Dylan's rugged voice called.

"What's going on in here?" the familiarity of the sassy nurse's voice brought a small smile to my face. Now that on I felt.

It hurt to move. The nurse's frantic calling of the doctor brought on a headache, one of the things I didn't miss.

When my head cleared, my thoughts went all over the place.

Maybe I can get out of here. I tried, and failed, to open my eyes, as the beeping from the heart monitor reached my ears.

The doctor's heavy footsteps sounded from all around the room. My head turned toward his direction, causing him to stop abruptly.

"Doctor…?" My voice called out, raspy from not being used.

Finally, with much effort, I felt my eyelids flutter open…but it was still dark…

When I gained control of my arms, I lifted them slowly, feeling the cold tubes and wires move across my arm.

Shivering slightly, I felt around my face…making my way slowly to my eyes.

They were open.

I screamed.

I cried.

I wanted to see.


Author's Note: So it probably sucks as a prologue, but hey, it's the best i can do.

Review and let me know what you think, any advice would be much appreciated!
