The rain poured heavily on my windshield, my worn down wipers scrapped violently against the glass, in a weak attempt to wipe off the water but more quickly poured down to replace it.
 
The radio filled the car loudly like it did every time I drove home. 
The water on the road swished under my tires and pulled me into potholes the council still had not fixed.
 
The overhead street lights blurred through my windshield like an abstract sun painting as I passed under them.
I put my foot down on the accelerator as the traffic light turned green ahead. Speeding towards it, I had the other side of the intersection in my sights.
 
One more light and I was home.
 
Halfway through the intersection, a white light powers through the side of my car, lighting me and my interior up like a stage on opening night at the theatre, blinding me.
 
I heard the squeal of wet tires trying to stop and then a loud thud. 
The exact thud that comes with the crunch of the cars metal frame crumpling as it's force shifts you into the side door.
My hands still gripping the steering wheel, trying to keep me in place as my head smashes against the glass window.
The cold glass feels solid like cement against my skull, and everything goes black.
 
 
 
At this moment I am unconscious, and my mind is in limbo — the thin line between being alive and being dead.
 
My brain sends signals to every nerve ending checking for damage to vital organs.
My heart pumps extra blood around my limp body making sure every vein is intact and is in the process of repairing wounds.
My mind has put my thoughts and movements to sleep, shutting them down.
 
If I were to die at this moment, I would not know any different, and my life barely lived.
I was raised in a small town by both hard-working parents with three older brothers.
My dream of living in a big city two hours away from my loved ones would be incomplete before I could even finish my university degree and get my first job as a doctor.
I wanted to cherish their proud faces with the youngest Holloway braved the busy city and accomplished her dream.
 
As I'm about to accept my fate as nothing more than an eighteen-year-old girl killed by a rampaging truck, then I'm awakened by another light flashing across my eyes, as their forced open by plastic latex gloves.
 
I see the blurry outline of a face around the light, but my body is too tired to open my eyes on its own, to see who is touching my face and then my arm.
I feel a sharp prick pierce the skin in my inner elbow, and I groan weakly. 
I want to scream that I am fine, nothing but a scratch. My body deceives me and decides I need more rest, turning everything black again.
 
"Lilith. Lilith can you hear me?" a healthy male’s voice asks and I murmur a small noise in response.
"Lilith, I am Doctor Hudson. How are you feeling?" A man questions me, and his voice is calm and collected.
"Sore," I said softly, my voice sounding hoarse and strange.
"That’s to be expected, sorry. Do you know what happened?" The doctor asks me softly with a light chuckle as he says sorry.
"My car was in an accident" I recalled slowly after some thought about the last thing I saw. I wasn't sure if he was still there when he did not say anything.
 
I opened my eyes to notice a tall man with copper brown hair in a white doctors coat beside me, a clipboard in his hand as he wrote something down.
"Good. Yes, you were in a car accident" He tells me and then pauses as he continues to fill out the paper attached to the clipboard.
"You had some light abdominal bleeding, which will cause some bruising and a laceration to the right side of your forehead" The doctor calmly informed me.
"You are at Crowswood private hospital, You were unconscious" He continued still looking down reading my chart.
 
"I'm going to ask you a few questions. Please try to answer them honestly okay Lilith?" He asked lightly.
"Lily" I corrected, and he looked up from the clipboard. His eyes focused on me for a moment, and then he glanced down again.
"Well, Lily. Are you in any pain?" He asked putting the clipboard down on the end of my bed. He checked the IV bag that was attached to the pole beside my bed.
 
"No I am fine," I said softly trying to sit up but I did not have the strength and pain shot from my ribs. I tried to ignore it knowing I would be in pain if I had abdominal bleeding.
"Have you taken any drugs or had any alcohol in the last twenty-four hours?" he asked calmly — an obvious routine question.
"No," I said shaking my head slowly.
"Can you tell me your date of birth?" He asked lightly.
"The eighth of October. Nineteen ninety-eight" I said slowly, trying to force my aching head to remember.
"I'm going to check your pupil’s. Please stay still" he said leaning closer and shone a little light into my eyes.
 
 
My eyes focused on his face as I watched the light. His unique blue eyes glistened under the hospital lights like sun rays dancing through the oceans deep water. 
The small crease that appeared between his eyebrows when he focused. The natural shape of his soft lips, his masculine jaw bone and the light five o'clock shadow that was beginning to grow across his jawline.
 
"Looks good. I will check your pulse, and then I will leave you alone for a while" The doctor announced with a gentle smile and then picked up the arm strap from the machine beside him.
"Sorry if my hands are a little cold," The doctor informed me as he slowly lifted the sleeve of my shirt and slipped the compression band on. Pressing the button and I watched as the strap slowly inflated, pinching my arm inside.
 
"Looks good," He said after it beeped and took it off my arm.
"Do you have any questions, Lily?" He asked, and I realised this whole time I’ve said six things.
"I do not think so," I lightly answered as we held eye contact and I'm attracted to the beautiful blue in them.
"Okay, well just push that red button beside you if you need someone, and a doctor will come," he told me warmly.
"Thank you" I smiled back and he picked up his clipboard. After filling out more information, He slipped it into the metal pocket on the end of my bed and walked away.
 
I slowly closed my eyes, listening to the slow beeping of the monitor in the next bed over. 
A thin blue curtain between us and I let out a shaky breath trying to dull the pain beginning to radiate from my side.
 
Beep. Beep. Beep.
