idk what that line is on the right but it looks good anyway
Ohhh you liked that?
At the moment I’m not thinking about continuing it, but maybe after GwG I will :3
I made it half way up the stairs then the room began to spin
“Owen,” I sighed. Owen, or, the guy that was sent to escort me, shall I say, hurried to my side
“Okay you look like crap, Lyra” He picked me up and carried me to the end of the stairs then put me down and helped me walk to my room “See this is what happens when you mix pills and booze”
I clung to him before making it to my room and collapsing on the bed, eyes closed.
“You need help getting changed?”
“No” I shook my head, “I think I can manage that.” I opened my eyes and looked at him, “Do you have any idea what’s going on?”
I reached for the shirt at the end of my bed and pulled it over my head, somehow managing to wriggle the singlet I had on down so it fell to the floor, “And I need some help getting my shorts off” I sighed
Doc poured something onto the hole that felt something like getting shampoo in your eye in the shower, I struggled against the people pinning me down till the pain eased. A dressing pad was taped on and I was allowed to sit up.
“You need to take some of these pain killers,” Doc said, holding out some pills and a glass of water
I took the pills, and shakily started to get up off of the kitchen table which had doubled as a trauma bed numerous times, and made my way to the bar area. I picked up an old whiskey bottle and took off the lid, taking the pills with a 50 year old drink of Scotch.
“Okay well I did mean take them with water cause with that you’ll be on your ass”
“I’ll be fine.” I looked to Dante, “What just happened?”
“You got shot” One of the guys shrugged
“Okay I know that” I snapped, “But why?”
“Don’t worry about it” Dante said
“Don’t worry about it? Don’t freaking worry about it? I just got shot, Dante, and I know it’s got something to do with being a Novak.”
“Take her to her room” Dante instructed, turning away, pulling his ringing phone out of his pocket
“Let me take this and I’ll come talk to you” He shook his head, “You’ve got blood on you, go have a shower”
“No” I protested
“Lyra I’ll be there” He pleaded “I need to take this”
I sighed. I’d been kept out of a lot of things but this was more than a little personal, If my life was in danger, and my family too, then I wanted to know what the fuck was going on.
“Don’t think this is getting you out of talking to Zane’s coach” Dante said, trying to change the subject to get my mind off of what Doc was doing
“I spoke to him breifly the other day. He said Zane would be starting tomorrow”
“Good” Dante nodded, “But I do think that it still has a lot to do with you”
“Oh come on Lyra, he’s looked at you like a puppy drooling after his own nuts for years”
Max laughed from where he was holding my legs, “Even when you were still in school he’d look at you and your dad wanted to shoot him for a few of the comments he overheard him say”
“You guys see things in nothing” I groaned. Dante looked over his shoulder at Max, whispering something and the two of them start laughing “What?”
“You go to the game tomorrow and wear something cute” Dante chuckled, “and see what happens”
“If I go to the game I’m in a long-sleeved top to cover this thing,” I nudged my head slightly to the hole in my skin being patched up by the family doctor, “and jeans. And Zane’s coach is like older than dad so what, that makes him the same age as god?” The boys laughed in sync, making my ears hurt – and then the pain was back “Doc,” I hissed
“I’m all done, I just need to clean it and dress it” He smiled, tapping my lightly on the cheek “You did very well, Lyra. This next part may sting but after that it’s all over, honey”
“Holy hell, Doc!” I screamed as he poked the open wound with a needle “Give me a fucking gun, I’m shooting the medical licence from your ass!”
“Lyra!” Dante snapped, “Look at me”
I turned my head, tears have now broken free, “It hurts”, I said in all but a whisper
Dante just nodded
“You’re going to feel pressure and discomfort, honey” The doctor took a napkin from the kitchen counter and wiped the tears that were soaking my hair
“Just put a band-aid on it” I swallowed
“Ly, it’s a god damn bullet hole not a paper cut” Dante sighed, shaking his head
I felt something pushing in my shoulder but the pain was no longer there.
“I don’t know what they were using but it’s fragmented” The doctor spoke low and quickly to Dante
“Can you get all the pieces?”
“I think so” He nodded, “Lyra you have to let me know if it starts to hurt again”
“I pulled up and saw someone behind an escape car when she was shot,” Kidd held up his hands, “I wasn’t followed, they were already there”
“Then how the hell did they know where she was?”
“Girls put down the handbags” I hissed, “If you can’t play nice then get the hell out”
They looked at me as the doctor entered and grabbed a syringe filled with clear liquid
“Lyra this will sting” He smiled at me, trying to sound calm
“I don’t care” I gritted my teeth and tried to focus on the light on the ceiling
“I need a couple of you to hold her down while I inject this into the wound”
My legs and arms were suddenly pinned down
“Hey,” Dante said, I turned to look at him “Look at me not what doc’s doing” He sounded like dad right now and that didn’t help the lump that was in my throat “You’re going to be okay, sis”
The door for the car was pulled open as Dante walked up to us, standing there looking a mix of pissed and scared. He lifted me and all but ran into the house with me
“Ow, Dante that hurts” I groaned with the jerky movements of him rushing through the front open double doors. The kitchen table had been cleared of everything and I was laid down on it “Fuck it hurts” I bit my lip, fighting back the tears
Kidd walked in the room and Dante instantly spun on him, getting up close in his face “How the hell did this happen? How the hell did my sister end up with a god damn bullet in her?”
Thank you :’)
It changes a lot but at the moment I’m using Hilary’s Impulse action a lot & then I add my own stuff on top of that. It’s a really good action for photoshop though - definitely download it!
