So here it is! After nearly a month’s wait and promises of going to post it soon, here it finally is! I am so sorry for the delay. Here’s the previous chapter: Overturned Chapter 14. Hope you enjoy.
Charlie pocketed his phone, rubbing his tired eyes, that were red from crying.
“What did Mia’s dad say?” Lily asked in a short and clipped tone.
Charlie looked at her and let out a quiet sigh. Lily’s face was set in a scowl – which Charlie couldn’t tell if it was due to him being there or from Mia’s accident or from the fact that they had been sitting in this waiting room for the past twelve since yesterday night and that she had refused to have anything to eat or drink until a doctor or nurse came and told them what was going to happen with Mia.
Or maybe her scowl was a combination of the whole lot.
And she had absolutely refused to look at him the entire time.
“He says he’s going to come around as soon as he can,” Charlie said and resumed to what he had been doing the past few hours ever since they had arrived at the hospital waiting room – pacing intensely.
That question made Charlie stop and look at her curiously to find her staring at him – without a scowl, surprisingly.
Instead she seemed to be studying him with a glowering intensity.
“What about him?” Charlie asked.
“Where is he? I haven’t seen any sign of him since we came here,” Lily remarked, eyes sticking to Charlie like glue.
“I don’t know. He disappeared soon after the ambulance came to get Mia,” he said, his voice cracking. It had been horrible – fire fighters had to be called to peel the wreckage off of Mia. The car and Mia had crashed into another car and both drivers were in the Intensive Care Unit.
Mia was very lucky to be alive.
He then realised that Lily was talking to him. “What do you mean he disappeared? Where did he go?”
He cut off as he saw a doctor come into the room and saw their names.
With a quick prayer, Charlie stopped and then went over to the doctor, but Lily had made it to the doctor first.
“Yes?” she asked.
Charlie mentally crossed his fingers.
Please still be alive, please…
Sorry for the delay – wasn’t in the right mindset to write this story for a little while and just needed a break until I could figure out what exactly I wanted to write and such.
Hope you all enjoyed 🙂
