Beep. Beep. Beep. Beep.
I moved my head a little bit, as if to muffle the sound coming from my left ear. I slowly opened my eyes, squinting in the bright light.
“He’s awake! HE’S AWAKE! Quick, get the doctor!” I heard a nurse call.
Awake? I blinked, then looked at the window. Light was seeping through the blinds. I twisted my head with some more, grinding my teeth in pain, to see a heart monitor. So that’s where the beeps were coming from.
“Jongwoon Kim.” I turned slowly to see a graying doctor.
“Yes?” I croaked out.
“Ahh, you’re awake. I’m sure you’re wondering what has happened.” I nodded. “Well, let’s say the car accident you were in was pretty severe. Luckily for you, you got the least impact to your brain due to your arms guarding your face, sitting in the back, and wearing a seatbelt. Still, you got a pretty bad concussion and you were unconscious for three days.”
I blinked in surprise. “Your left arm took most of the impact, having a pretty nasty break. We would also like to check on your right arm for a bit. Most of your body is pretty bloody and bruised. And again, you have a concussion. In a few days, we will perform surgery to realign your left arm. We would have done it soon as possible, but we wanted to make sure you gained consciousness first.”
I nodded again. “Your family will be immediately notified about your awakening. I know hospital life may be a bit boring, but I assure you we will perform your treatments as soon as possible. For now, just try to rest.” He slipped the clipboard he had been writing on back under his arm. “I will check on you in an hour,” he said.
“Wait, what’s, your, name?” I panted out. Talking seemed to take all my energy. My throat was dry.
He smiled. “I am Dr. Perry. See you later, Jongwoon.” He nodded his head and slipped out of the room.
I turned back to facing the ceiling and closed my eyes. My head resonated. You’ll have to reach out to a person you have never met before and help him or her achieve his or her deepest wish. Was that just a dream? Either way, it seemed realistic enough. I might as well do it.
With those thoughts, I fell asleep.
Okay, as you can see, I’m using Yesung’s real name. Sorry if it’s confusing, but it’s kinda important for the story. Also to make things more realistic. Right now we’re going to say that Yesung is a teenager. I can’t really say where he is because that’s up you to think. Personally, I like to think of him as a teenager in the Eastern United States, but I guess he could anywhere in the States or Canada. Eastern is just easier to explain what happens later on the story.
Also, if the injuries for the car crash don't sound realistic, please tell me so I can fix it. I've only been in one car crash and it was just a deer betting it could make it past a highway. >.< Obviously I'm fine from that.
Also, if I say a lot about later on the story, it’s because I actually have an outline in my head. Scary, huh? Well, the reason why I have a mental one is because if I didn’t have one, the story comes out to be a mess. If I don’t have an outline, having an ending is probably sufficient. But I also like to be organized. Which I’m not. >.<
