Hospital Occurrence

"Where am I?" asked Mags. She startled the nurse beside her, who was just doing her rounds. 

"Well, hello there Jane," the nurse said, regaining her composure; she hated when that happened. "How you feeling?"

"I feel fine," Mags replied, trying to garner where she was. "But I am awfully dry."

The nurse poured a glass of ice water and handed it to her. She cautioned Maggie on gulping it down. "Now, now, you have gone through an ordeal. Let's take it one sip at a time."

"How long have I been sleeping?" she asked.

"You have been here for thirteen days," the nurse replied. "You were brought in by an elderly couple who found you naked on the the side of the road."

"Naked? What happened?" Maggie asked.

"That's what we would like to know," the nurse replied with a fake smile. "I will fetch the doctor."

The nurse disappeared out the sliding door. Mags looked around and didn't recognize anything at all. That must of been some shift, she thought; a radical change it was.

She swung her feet around and sat up. She felt weak and tired, though she knew that she had been out for days. She brought up her right hand and looked at it, and smiled. 

"It's good to see you again pinky," she said. She watched it dance for a few seconds. Then she stood up. She removed the hospital gown and looked at her body. It was pocked marked with over a dozen old bullet wounds.

"Well, some things never change," she said. 

She walked over to the closet with the name Jane Doe on the label. Inside there was a nice dress, folded, and a note on it signed The Hendelsons. With that was a twenty dollar bill. Probably the old folks who brought her in; she would have to find them and repay them. 

She slipped into the dress; it was a nice light colour, and she was thankful that it wasn't a floral print. She looked at herself in the mirror and she smiled. She looked like a student out for a day at the beach. 

"Well now, Jane," Dr. Vestlen said as he entered. "It's nice to see you up and about, but I doubt you will be leaving us anytime soon."

Maggie looked over at the good doctor and smiled. "Just stretching my legs after being off them for awhile."

"Well, we have a few questions to ask you... When you came in you had 14 bullet wounds in your body, but no sign of any bullets. And it's amazing that you managed to survive," the doctor said. He motioned for Maggie to sit on the bed. Maggie moved to the bed.

She looked down on the scars on her body, and was quite shocked, since they looked like old scars. "You mean the bullet wounds were just recent?"

The doctor took out a penlight and shined it into her eyes; she turned her head as advised to do so, and the doctor looked inside her ears. That's when she noticed the flowers sitting on the stand.

"Who sent me those?" she asked the nurse. 

The nurse said, "You know, I'm not sure... They arrived this morning..." The nurse plucked the card from the flowers and opened it. "'See you soon, LEGACY.'"

That's when Maggie pushed the doctor aside and dove out the fourth floor window.
