Blessed Be Light. Bright. Uuuugh. My head is killing me. What is that smell? Gross. Open eyes, I can't see a thing. Ooh, hurts, all over. What? Beep, beep, beep...shh, squeak. What? Oh, A cool hand, thank you, that's nice. Where am I? Open eyes, please. Daddy? What? Move lips, say something. What happened? Daddy? Oh, you look so tired. Oh don't jerk like that, it moves the bed and makes my head hurt worse. That's not my voice. He looks so tired. Why am I here? A hos...hospital? Yes, that's it. A hospital room. Four white walls, blue curtain, pretty color, soft pillow. Why can't I move my body? Move, body, move, mooovve, now! Calm, calm, calm down. Mustn't freak. There's always answers. Soft voice. Daddy? Daddy...Deep breath, hurts like fire , ooww ... What ... happened? Tears? Why tears, Daddy? Tell me, please! Honey, thank God, your awake. Oh God, honey, there was an accident... Accident? What accident? I don't remember. Tell me? FLASH A car, no a van, no it's a car. Eric, you're hilarious. Yes, it was great when he spilled it on her. Eric's great. He has the greatest laugh. He's driving well. Carefully, but not too carefully, as he always does. Oh, but he looks so darn cute in that tux. I'm glad he's mine. Anne, Etienne, you guys are looking so good, even after all the dancing. Yeah, it was a great Prom, one of the best. My second with Eric. Anne, you didn't spill anything on your dress did you? Whoa! Turn off your brights, man! Guy's an idiot, Etienne says. Yeah, I agree. Your boutonniere's drooping, sweetheart, let me grab it before it comes off. Whoops! Sorry, sharp pin. Can we turn up the music? Yeah, great! Oh, thanks, Anne, I didn't even notice it coming out. Sorry, had to yawn. Late night. There's a party? Where? Oh, yeah, let's go! No drinking? That's good. Dinner was great, though the waiter needed mucho help. Wow! Look at those stars! Some really bright ones tonight. Oh! A shooting star! Here, take that road, left, Eric, left. Who's giving the party? Amy Lee? Cool. She is way cool. Turn off the cooler, Eric, it's cold. Stop laughing you two in the back! I'm always cold. Oh, I'll get you back for that, ‘Ienne. ‘Nother car coming, hopefully he'll turn his brights down. Hey, Anne, do you have the water bottle? Those trees are gorgeous in the morning you know. Eric watch out! Oh God, he hit us! Eric! Help me! Errriiicc! FLASH Oh God! What happened? Someone hit us! Why tears, Daddy, why tears? We were being good, I swear, I swear. No drinking, no drugs, just fun. We had the music up and I was laughing with them. NO! Don't want that! Leave me ‘lone! Daddy, what happened? Move body, why can't I move? Go ‘way, lady, leave me'lone! Daddy, Daddy, please. Work voice, say words, work better! What happened? Tell me! Daddy, please. Where's Eric?! Where're the others? We didn't do anything bad! God!
