Roads: Chapter 41 | Gifted Ones
"God, my head hurts." Zac stared at the call bell, rubbing it between his fingers. "That was dumb, she's mad at me, now she'll never come back in. Why'd I say that anyway?" He wanted her to come back. "I can't call her. Not after I yelled at her like that..." He felt tears again, and swore softly at himself. "What's wrong with me? God, I'm so useless..." He curled up, call bell in hand, wishing he dared ring it, wondering if he thought at her hard enough, she'd hear him and come back. Sighing, he shifted a little, and caught sight, for the first time, of the hospital gown he'd thrown on, jumping out of the tub. "Oh my God, WHAT am I wearing?" He gazed in horror at the baby deer, baby rabbits, baby skunks, frolicking across the face of the gown. "Bambi. I can't believe I'm wearing Bambi. This is just..." Sighing, he weighed it in his mind. His head was killing him, his stomach was queasy, he was seconds away from bawling like a baby, and he was wearing Bambi. And alone, he couldn't do a darn thing about any of them.
