Wow that’s a fucked up thought
I admit that’s fucked up even for me
I rolled my eyes and sluggishly tried to sit holding my hand to my head to try and ease the pain that had gotten worse.
I think I have a concussion or something...
You don’t say
I struggled against the pull of sleep I need to stay awake that is what you do with concussions right?
No you need to lay back down and sleep let your mind drift away whilst you think of before the world went to hell.
Hmmm tempting but I think not, I need to stay awake and aware of my surroundings.
After managing to sit up I watched the dog with weary and unfocused eyes as it crawled towards me.
“What are you doing?” I watched as closely as I could as it paused and lifted its ears.
”Do you understand me?”
I could hear muffled sounds as I floated in the black void I was locked in, words like doctor and help come in and filled the void echoing through the hollow space.Who is that?That’s not your concern just focus on going through the darkness towards the end of this so called voidBut why am I here? What is this? Shut up and enjoy the peace whilst we still can I don’t understand what’s going on, what....what is this place? How do I get out?Just rela-My subconscious was cut off at my eyes opened wide the pressure and pain in my skull the only thing keeping me from falling back into the darkness.“Uhhh...what? What’s going on? Where am I?” My confusion doubled as I heard a muffled reply.” Lay... hurt.... calm......please” the voice was deep and sounded concerned.
”Ok Hun so your head has a gash but it’s easy to fix with some super glue, I know what you’re thinking ‘super glue who uses super glue to fix a gash?’ But I can assure you that it’s perfectly safe, and I’ll help you take it off when your head looks a bit better. Ok so I’m just going to glue this together, then you can go home with Theo.”I pulled my hand back towards my body thinking about my reply before speaking out loud.“Thank you for doing this, it-it means a lot to me to uh know that even though you guys are just strangers you are looking after me. You don’t even have to but you did, I mean the last person that cared about me was my brother and I haven’t seen him since...” My words caught in my throat whilst my eyes prickled with tears I couldn’t speak the tears blurred my vision and my throat closed over, I just couldn’t think about that it’s just too painful for me t
"Right sweetie we need to get you back to my house so you can rest up and have a shower because I can barely see what you actually look like underneath all that dirt. What do you think about that? You can have something to eat after you shower." Theo gently helped my stand but after I started to sway and fall he picked me up and held my bridal style to prevent me from falling on my face. I looked around to see Tristan grab my medicine and the jelly before picking up the glass of water he had dropped and placing the empty glass on the table whistling Zara to follow after us as we exited the infirmary."So bailey have you got anyone waiting for you to come back or are you by yourself?" Tristan's voice made me shiver as he stared intently at me before turning his head to look at some people passing by."I-I’m by myself." I heaved out a breath as my vision blurred " the last group I was with um they uh died like a few days ago well I think they died. I was on a suppl
I shook my head before realising that Theo had stopped walking and was asking Tristan to open the door, when did we get here? Where is here?“Where are we?” I questioned.I clutched Theo’s shirt as he stepped in through the wooden door, it was a nice house for an apocalypse. The wooden door looked to be reinforced and the widows were protected with a metal mesh wire surrounding the glass pane, the house itself was a pale blue with a brown roof it was a weird colour but it was nostalgic. It reminded me of when my family was still together, when they actually liked me being around.I sighed closing my eyes and hid myself in Theo’s shirt I didn’t want to think about when I used to be happy it hurt too much to reminisce on the good days, I exhaled harshly as Theo came to a stop his hand coming up to rub my back in a comforting manner.“Sweetheart there’s a couch you can rest one while I sort the gu
"Are you ok?" Tristan’s voice jarred me out of my awkward fiddling and caused me to jump, I looked up at him to him softly smiling at me reassuring me that everything was fine and he wasn’t going to harm me."I'm sorry I didn't mean to scare you, you just seemed really out of place." he knelt down in front of me and took my hands that were pinching each other. he rubbed the little crescent marks left behind."You don't need to be afraid anymore, I know that we are all complete strangers to you but trust me when I say I will not allow anyone to harm you. I promise you bailey." he gently squeezed my injured hands and smiled up at me before getting back to his feet just as Theo walked in with a towel in hand."oh perfect Tristan has already warmed up the water for you." he turned to Tristan before making a shooing motion with his hands and turning around to face me. Tristan shook his head and smiled at me before walking out of the bathroom and gently cl
After Theo had finished helping me wash my hair and the general areas of my body I asked for some privacy to finish off and dress before I joined them in the kitchen. The kitchen wasn’t too far from where the bathroom was located I remembered that from our walk here but I couldn’t help but get lost in the house, I was too lost in the memories that were dragged up for talking to Theo about the past. A cold nose poked the back of my calf muscle making me jump and let out a startled yelp, the sound of cutlery being dropped made me look in the direction of a doorway and not long after Tristan burst through the door holding a knife in his hand and searching with his eyes until they met mine. He sighed and lowered the knife looking down at my legs to find Zara staring at him innocently. "Zara you can’t go around scaring everyone!" Tristan scolded her before looking back towards me. "Are you ok? she didn’t hurt you by accident did she?" his e
A gentle nudge under my chin bought my attention back to Tristan standing in front of me his eyes shone with concern for me.“I’m sorry.” It came out as barely a whisper but I knew he had heard me because his lips turned down the slightest before he smoothed out the frown and replaced it with a gentle smile. Is that what she meant when she said they hide the way they felt about me?“Don’t say sorry you’ve been through a lot in the past day, how about we go get some food and then you can go lay down in the spare bedroom?” he spoke cautiously like he didn’t want to overwhelm me, they are so kind to me. I’m scared of what they are going to want in return of all this kindness, what are they going to make me do to pay back the burden I’ve placed on them by being here?“Ok.” I looked back up him and sighed, I can’t let these thoughts ruin the right now I can’t let them see how weak I&r
I cleared my throat and let go of Tristan’s hand mumbling an apology when I saw the red marks I had left behind, I didn’t man to keep a death grip on him the whole time.“It’s ok, how about we make you a snack?” he left me at the table and wandered in the pantry before getting kicked out by Theo who tsk’d when Tristan made an approach towards it.“I know you’re not about to even think of setting foot in my kitchen, we both remember what happened last time don’t we?” the hard look on Theo’s face peaked my interest in the situation. Tristan came to sit next to me grumbling about how it was an accident and he didn’t mean to do it. I giggled a little at him before turning my attention towards Theo however not before I noticed Tristan perk up at the sound of my giggle.“Uh what happened last time, if you don’t mind me asking?” I stifled my laugh as tristan groa
