Defiant - Chapter 1
The only thing I remember before I blacked out, was a very familiar neigh.
Beep, beep, beep…I heard the heart monitor and each time it made a sound was like a screech in my head. I heard a blood-curdling scream and it took me awhile to figure out who it was, it was me. Blackout.
I heard people calling my name. I didn’t know who they were. I slowly opened my eyes and saw a woman who the others say is my mother but I didn’t recognize her. Blackout.
Where am I? What happened? Why am I here? I couldn’t remember anything that happened and couldn’t feel any pain. I was about ready to try and start climbing out of the bed when a doctor rushed in.
“Why am I here?” I bombarded him with the question demanding an answer. “Tell me the truth! I’m not hurt, so why am I here?”
“Jenny, there is no reason to worry, you are safe and we have everything under control,” he replied.
“NO! That’s not an answer. I need to know where I am, who I am, and why I’m here.”
He pulled up a chair next to my hospital bed and reluctantly told me that he didn’t know. He told me that my mother should be the one to tell me.
“Why should my mother tell me? Who is my mother?” I screamed.
The doctor was taken aback at my fierceness, he had a deep look of concern on his face when he heard me scream. I later found out that my mother was a tall, thin lady with flowing blonde curls and not a flaw on her face. Her fierce, green eyes were wet with tears when the doctor told her my condition. I couldn’t help but cry a little. When I see others cry, it cry too.
She told me I had amnesia, the doctor told her that it was a small chance that I would ever regain my memory. As she told me this, tears began to well up in her eyes. I felt bad for her. She was scared that I would never know who she was again.
