The first thing Will noticed when he opened his eyes were the broom that passed his room. He frowned when it happened again. Then again, his mind was so fuzzy he could have imagined it. He leaned back in bed when the world started spinning again.
At least his side stopped hurting whenever he moved.
Will cracked an eye open when someone walked in his room. He couldn’t recognize the person in front of him. What if it was someone from his den? What if they found him? He wasn’t ready to fight anyone, but maybe he could get out before they could get to him. He tried to get out of bed, but the figure from the door walked over and placed a hand on his arm.
“Please lay back down, sir.”
Will turned to the woman with dark hair and brown eyes and pulled his arm out of her grasp. “I-I can’t, I have to…um…work…job…interview?”
“Yes, yes I know you have to get back to work, but once you’re well enough to leave. You had some nasty injuries there, I’m sure it’s going to be some time before you can leave.”
Of course. Will groaned and sat back in bed.
She smiled and patted his arm. “It’s not too bad; you’ll be out of here before you know it.”
“Excuse me, um…”
“You can call me Nurse Johnson or Stephanie if you’d like.”
“Nurse Stephanie, do you know how long that will be?”
“I have an estimate of a week, but it shouldn’t be that long.”
Will nodded. He groaned softly as he tried to get out of bed.
“Do you need any help?” Stephanie said.
Will nodded and pointed to the bathroom.
“Okay, let’s go.” She helped Will get out of bed and walked him over to the bathroom. “I’ll be out here when you get out.”
“Alright thank you.” Will said and walked inside. Once he closed the door, he leaned against it when the floor started to move again. He opened his eyes when it stopped and tried to focus his thoughts again. He opened his hospital gown and looked at the bandages around his side and arm.
I must have got some good stuff I missed this. Will frowned and rubbed his arm. Being in the hospital would set his plans back, but it couldn’t be helped.
I won’t be here for too long one of the upsides to being a werewolf. Will pushed off from the door and shuffled over to the toilet.
Once he finished in the bathroom, he opened the door to Stephanie waiting outside. She helped him back into bed and checked the machines around him.
“Um, there’s no way anyone would know I’m here right?”
“No, not unless they visit you or we need to call someone on your emergency contacts.”
“Okay.” Will said. He rubbed the bandage again as he thought back to Cassandra and the worry on her face. He hated that look on anyone’s face.
“Um, can I call someone?”
“Sure, we have that phone over there for you to use. Are you psychic by any chance?”
“Okay, just something that we have to ask. I need to check your vitals, please hold still.” Stephanie said. She pulled a small key chain wand out of her pocket and whispered a spell as the staff grew in her hands. She closed her eyes as a blue aura surrounded the staff. She moved it over Will’s body slowly while a nearby chart and pen took notes. The chart and pen returned to it’s place in front of Will’s bed as the blue aura disappeared and the wand shrunk back to size when Stephanie opened her eyes.
“Hmm, everything seems to be in working order. I’ll put in an order for some more pain medicine and the doctor will be here to see you shortly.”
Stephanie nodded on her way out the room.
Will looked at the phone next to him and debated if he should call. Would it be weird? Maybe she doesn’t want a call from someone who nearly stained her carpet. Still, I should probably apologize.
The look on Cassandra’s face appeared in his mind again along with a knot in his stomach. If he didn’t do it soon he wouldn’t be able to get it out of his mind.
He reached over and picked up the phone.
