The Dream about Whom
I remember falling to the ground in a reddish, brownish dirt place. Then I remember hearing voices of Padre and Madre, then I heard nurses talking about my accomplishments that I have done.
“Sedate her. We do not want her to move while we work on her. Deep laceration on her left side. It needs sewn together asap.” I heard Doctor Blue Blood say as I tried to get up.
Nurses grabbed me and slammed me against the bed. They held a mask looking thing and I kept moving my head side to side, avoiding the mask. Out of my peripheral vision I saw one of the nurses grab a needle and syringe full of something. I was having no part of it. I knocked her down with my tail that appeared.
“Hold her down!! Strap her arms, legs, and her tail down, now! We need to sedate her now!” Doctor Blue Blood said as he had a hold of my tail.
I tried to stand again but the nurses held me down and strapped my arms and legs down. After that, they tried to strap my tail down, but I hit them away from me. Then, I felt a small pinch in my arm. I looked over to see a nurse pull a needle and syringe out of my skin. My eyes got droopy and I got tired really fast. I tried to fight it but, it was no use. In
no time, I was asleep, and they went to work upon my side.
I remember waking up to a little cottage in front of me. I walked up to the door and knocked upon it. The door opened and I heard whispering as the closed behind me. I turned around and saw no one as I backed up slowly.
“Dear sista, come join me at this meal I have prepared.” I heard a familiar male voice say as I touched a chair.
I turned around to see, none other than my brother, Lolo Darius Raven. I couldn’t believe that he was there. I pulled the chair out and sat down. I scooted the chair forward, a little bit to get to the table.
“Lolo, why are you here? Why is there a meal prepared for us?” I asked as a plate of ham, Monterey Jack Cheese, cranberry sauce, corn bread and green beans showed up.
“The food symbolizes when we shall have an argument. I am here to say, I am coming to find you, my dear sista. The cottage symbolizes that we shall part once again and come back stronger than ever.” Lolo said as he smiled at me.
“The Monterey Jack is in the shape of a school. The cranberry sauce just turned into blood, like we will spill one another’s blood. The ham is a guitar shape and that is a little confusing there. The corn bread is a block? I don’t get it.” I said as I noticed that Lolo was gone.
I looked around for Lolo. I couldn’t find him. Next thing I know, I am waking up in the O.R. and the nurses are hustling around. I sat up as I had ringing in my ears. I noticed that Doctor Blue Blood was saying something, but I couldn’t make it out. I looked around and stood up. The ringing in my ears stopped as I stood there for a moment.
“Iris!! You need to lay back down. You are going to rip out your stitches.” Doctor Blue Blood said as he grabbed my wrist and pulled me back toward the bed.
I shook my head no and then, I lost feeling in my left side. I fell to the ground as I heard nurses start to scream. The metal cart I tried to grab to help me stand crashed to the floor. I grabbed my left side because it started to hurt me. It felt wet to the touch. I brought my hand around and saw my hand was covered in blood. I noticed a nurse sneaking up on me and I laid on the floor. I felt another pinch in my skin and I fell asleep just as quickly as the first time.
This time I was in front of an office building. I walked up to the door and the door opened up slowly. I backed away as something walked out and looked at me like I was stupid.
“Your turn, ma’am. The boss wants to see you.” The guy said as he pushed me toward the door.
He pushed me through the door, and he was gone. I was in what looked like my mom’s office at the house. Why was it here in this glass building?
“Iris Tatiana Freedom!! Where is your brother?” I heard my mother ask, sternly.
“I do not know, mother.” I answered honestly.
“I sent you out there to go find him and this is all I get! I disown you as a daughter!” My mother snarled as she slammed her hands against the desk.
I jumped a little bit and replied with, “You cannot do that. You cannot disown your own daughter. I really do not know where Lolo is at. Please, believe me.”
“I just did. Now get out of my office!!” My mother snarled.
I backed away and through the door. It went dark, then I was in front of a leaf door. The Leaf Door opened, and I walked through it. I noticed my father was pacing and mumbling to himself.
“Ah, daughtren of mine. I have long missed you. Now that you are here, you must take an Oath.” My padre said as he smiled at me.
“You aren’t my padre. He doesn’t smile, he doesn’t seem happy at all when it comes to speaking about anything.” I said as I backed away.
“Nonsense, dear child. I haven’t been happier since the day, your mother and I split ways.” Padre said as he hugged me.
I shook my head no and screeched as I went down to my knees. I started crying and everything was gone. All I saw white all around me, then a bright light moving back and forth.
“Iris? Iris. Come on. Wake up.” I heard someone say as I opened my eyes slowly.
I blinked multiple times to see clearly. I looked up to see a nurse with blue eyes and ears like an elf on my right side. She smiled at me and I looked at her, confused out of my wits. I sat up slowly and the nurse touched my shoulder. I looked at her and she looked right back at me.
“Who are you?” I asked her.
“I am Nurse Joy. I am the nurse who is taking care of you for the next few days. You are in the ICU part of the clinic. You need to rest to let your wound heal, Iris.” The nurse said as she laid me back down.
“No. I don’t need rest. I need to find my brada.” I said as I sat up and pushed her aside.
I put my legs over the side of the bed and slid slowly off the bed. I touched my feet to the cold, linoleum floor. I put weight on my legs and stood there for a while. I smile as pain shot through my side. I ignored the pain and went to walk when I started to fall. I grabbed the nearest thing to me, which was a metal rolling cart. The metal cart crashed to the floor along with the utensils that were on top. I sat up and heard nurses run into the room.
“Why can’t I feel my left side?” I asked in disbelief.
“You were injured during a fight. You need to lay down and rest.” I heard one of the new nurses say as they walked toward me.
“No!! No. I need to get home and figure out where my brada went.” I said as I tried to stand up but fell back to the floor.
“Let us help you get back in the bed so you can get some rest. You need to let that wound heal properly.” The original nurse said as I noticed she was walking toward me with a needle and a syringe.
“I said, NO!!” I snarled as my tail showed up and I slung her across the room.
“Please, you need to rest so you can heal.” Another nurse said as she hit a button and a blaring sound started.
“Shut it off!” I yelled over the noise.
“Not until you let us help you into the bed so you can rest!” The nurse who hit the button said.
“F… Fine! Shut it off and I… I will cooperate with you.” I yelled as I noticed her hit the button again.
The sound turned off and I looked at her as she walked over toward me. I swung my tail at the nurse, knocking her down to the ground. Another nurse grabbed my left arm and lifted me up. I pushed her away and grabbed my side. It felt wet, sticky and something poked my hand. I pulled my hand away from my side and saw blood drip from my hand. A nurse grabbed my arm and I stood up with her help. She helped me to the bed and helped lay me down on the bed as another nurse grabbed a needle and syringe. I looked up to see that she was walking over to me with it.
“Restrain her!” The nurse with the needle and syringe said calmly.
The other nurses held me down as the nurse jabbed my leg with the needle as she said, “I am so sorry.”
I noticed that Doctor Blue Blood walked in and put gloves on. He nodded as another needle was jabbed into my arm. Before I fell asleep, I felt them strap me to the bed. I fell asleep just as I felt something poke my side.
