At least now I can use the wheelchair without help…
For two days, Quinn Fabray was in a state of nothingness. She remembered darkness taking over her and the sound of various machines as she began to wake up. Nothing else. It took a moment for her to realize that the beeping noise she was hearing was a heart monitor. Hospital, she thought. Her senses began to come back to her, but she realized that she felt completely disconnected from her body. Slowly, ever so slowly, she opened her eyes. The bright lights made her feel dizzy. She heard her name being called, but she wasn’t quite sure who was trying to talk to her. “Quinnie?” the voice asked again. “Can you hear me?”
“M-Mom?” she asked weakly. She closed her eyes again, trying to remember what had happened. She remembered being in her car when her phone buzzed. She remembered looking down for just a moment to see what the text said. I’m waiting at the train station… She remembered darkness.
“Quinnie! You’re awake!” She could swear she saw tears falling from her mother’s eyes. “I’m going to go find a doctor, I’ll be right back.” Judy kissed her forehead and left, only to come back a few minutes later with who Quinn assumed was the doctor. He started telling her about what happened. Car accident, spinal cord injury, paraplegia. She remembered those few words from his explanation. And as she realized she might never walk again, she wished she could go back to that state of nothingness.
I’m going to miss you so much.
I’ll miss you too, Charlie Bucket…
Knock ‘em dead, but try not to get knocked up.
