“Lucy, open your eyes.

The voice came from a great distance. She tried to follow it, but it slipped away. If it would only speak again, she might be able to find it. She felt as if she were turning in circles. Why was it hiding from her?

Tears rolled down the side of her face. Her head ached; her body throbbed. The pain traveled down her hips and legs--radiating, pounding, burning. Where are you? Her mind screamed. I can’t find you!

“You’re crying,” the voice whispered. “I believe you can hear me, Lucy.”

I can hear you! Why can’t I see you?

“Listen to my voice. Follow my voice. You can wake up; you know you can. Follow my voice.”

Lucy searched for a sign to follow. There was only darkness at every turn. She wanted to give up and surrender completely to it. She was too tired to fight anymore. She didn’t have the strength.

Wait. She thought she saw a faint light. Yes, there it is. It must be where the voice is coming from. She gathered all the energy she could muster and held it tight. With the first step, she started toward the light.

The next thing she knew, her eyes opened. The bright light was the beam of a small flashlight shining in her eyes.

Stop! Too bright! she tried to say, but only a squeak emerged from her throat. The light disappeared, and a face came into view.

“Hello, Lucy.”

She blinked several times before her vision cleared, and she could see without the blurry images. Where am I, she tried to say, but again her words were only a squeak.

“You’re in the hospital. The bus you were on was in an accident. Do you remember?”

Lucy blinked.

“That’s good. If you remember that much, then you’re home free. Try to get some more rest. I’ll let your doctor know that you woke up. How’s that?”

Lucy blinked again. Then she closed her eyes and fell back into the darkness.

When she opened her eyes again, the room was dim. She could see little green lights. They went up and down on a screen beside her bed. She watched them for a moment, then turned her head.

A sharp pain stabbed her on the right side of her skull. She reached a hand up and felt the bandages wrapped around her cranium. The right side of her head was dressed entirely in gauze. On the other, her hair was gone.

“Arg!” she cried. She fought against the straps that held her down. The heart monitor where she was attached started to beep, the green waves moving erratically. She couldn’t scream. Something was stuck in her throat.

Her door opened, and a doctor dressed in scrubs rushed into the room. “Here, here, Sweetheart, " he said as he held her struggling arms. “There’s nothing wrong here. Let’s calm down a little bit.”

She shook her head, her hand touching the side that had been shaved bald.

Oh, that’s what it is?” he asked. “Don’t panic, Sweetheart. They had to. It will grow back.”

The tears formed in her eyes and rolled down to the pillow, leaving small trails of dampness.

“Don’t cry.” He pulled a Kleenex from the box on her nightstand and dabbed at her eyes. “Don’t you know? You’re still beautiful. Those Amber eyes of yours will attract any man that’s brave enough to approach you.”

Lucy smiled through her tears.

“That’s what I want to see. You keep smiling. I’m going to find your doctor. He can take that ventilator out of you so we can have a decent conversation. How’s that?”

She blinked, her eyes following him as he left the room.
