Someone Who Cares

May 29, 2011
As I sit in the corner of the sound drawn hospital I get lost in thought.

Beer. Why of all things had he been drunken' with the faint smell of beer.

Why hadn't I realized him stumbling into the house demanding I give him a foot massage.

I'd drowned him out the past few days seeing the e-mail he accidentally forgot to delete.
The e-mail he just happened to incidentally leave open.

Why? Why did I have to get involved with this cheater.

I don't love him anymore. He lied, cheated, and lied again.

So why is it that I am sobbing sitting in the waiting room by a man with a bloody nose and a pregnant lady with her husband?
Why was I crying?

I have better things to do, so I start to gather my stuff and leave.

Just as I'm standing up the doctor had walked in.

"Janice Holloway?"

I turned, wiped my eyes and replied with "Present."

"Your husband-"
"Boyfriend." I interrupted.
"Your 'boyfriend' is out of surgery. The car crash was pretty bad and his blood alcohol test was at 1.94. He lost a lot of blood and is now in a drug induced coma."
"Awesome," I start crying, not because I'm sad but because I'm probably going to have to be the one to tell his parents, and girlfriend, "tell someone who cares."

I turned away and walked out of the hospital.

This was short, but I liked it.  Good job.  Could you read my story?  It's called Forget The Problems.  It's not very long and it's kind of about the same thing, but the ending it different.  Great job on this :DD .
