"And start slowing down. Start slowing down."
Alex chuckled as the car began to come to a stop and then pausing right behind the white line. Alex had definitely gotten the hang of being behind the wheel by now but of course his dad still remained on the cautious side, interjecting his guidance when he felt it was necessary even Alex had already thought of doing whatever it was a few seconds earlier. Alex just humored his father. The teenager understood why of course. Cautious wanting to make sure their kid was going to be safe when driving, that Alex would be following all the rules of the road.
And don't forget your...
"Turn signal? Alex interrupted, grinning at his father. Turn signal on. Alex had a little less than two weeks until his driving test and he was ready for it. He was confident in the driver's seat, no longer nervous or anxious. Well, maybe a little anxious now. Anxious to actually prove that he deserved that driver's license. He intended to leave the DMV with that new id in his pocket. That was the plan and Alex was looking forward to making it happen.
The light turned green and Alex began to move the car on its way. Everything was going great. Everything was perfect. At least it had been. Right up until Alex had finished turning to see the car heading in the wrong direction. His direction. The young man had been left with not time do anything before the two cars collided, pushing back the one that Alex and his father were in only to collide with another car. In a flash everything had gone black. Alex had been knocked out so quickly that he hadn't felt the piercing of the shattered glass into his skin. A blessing in disguise.
When Alex came to the light of the sun made him grown. Wait, not the sun. The lights of the...ceiling? This wasn't the car. This wasn't anywhere he knew. Alex tried sitting himself only to wince in pain. Everything hurt and Alex gave up trying to move. Where was he? He had been in the car with his father and...his father? Where was his father? His light movements had made enough noise to alert his mother of his consciousness, rushing to his side and urging him not to move too much. Alex tried to speaking, tried asking where dad was but was only met with a painful rasp in his throat. Like claws scratching away to keep from speaking. His throat felt dry but there was something not right.It was a feeling in his gut that there was more to it.
When Alex finally stopped moving and trying to talk was when he really listened to his mother and took in his surroundings. Hospital? Car accident? He vaguely remembered but his main concern was of his father. Thankfully his mother calmed those worries saying that his father had stepped out for a moment and would be back soon. In that moment Alex had thought the worse of it was over. That everything would be okay from then on. Oh how he would be wrong. The worse was yet to come.
The world seemed to come to a stand still as the doctor explained the extent of his injuries. Alex should be happy that at the very least he and father had come out of the crash alive. That they'd be both walking out of the hospital with his mother and sister. Keeping their lives in exchange for the loss of his voice. Fair deal right?
