A squeak from one of the steps on the staircase alerted me to someone approaching. I strode back and forth in the room, trying to calm myself. When Jeremy appeared in the open doorframe, I continued pacing.
"So we wait," he said with a sigh.
I paused, facing him. "It's fucking bullshit. I'm pretty much healed. I've been moving around and doing things for two weeks now."
"Maybe that's the problem," he said as he entered the room. "You've been doing too much."
I glared at him, then started pacing again. "This isn't fair. I can do things. We should be able to do things."
"You're healing, but not enough for the stitches to come out." He moved closer.
Still outraged, I shook my head.
Jeremy gripped my arms and brought me to a halt. "Stop and think about what you went through. Those fuckers sliced you open, Jessie. Then they used a saw to cut through your bones."
"My bones are fine."READ MORE
"That's not the point," he said, his voice slightly elevated. "Flesh wounds take longer to heal. This isn't some cut or scratch."
His words added fuel to my fury. "I know, okay!" I shoved his arms away, then sat on the bed. "I just wanted a kiss and to feel you close to me. What's the harm in that?"
He rushed at me and I raised my hands. He gripped my wrists, then threw me down onto my back. My heart jumped, stunned by his sudden move.COLLAPSE
