Jess was so startled she faltered a second and tumbled to the bottom of the stairs, but not before banging her head on the last step. Her vision went black, back to dreamland it was.
“Jess, Jess!!!! Oh my gosh!!â? my dad yelled, “Kathryn, call the doctor!!!â? he yelled. Jess tried to murmur something, but nothing came out. She faded and left her conscious state. When she came to, she was lying on the couch, in the living room. Her parents were on the phone, and her brother was standing over her.
“I’m so sorry,â? Jake said. He was practically was sobbing. “I’m so so sorry,â? he repeated. Jess could see and hear the sincerity of him.
“It’s okay,â? Jess rasped. Jake brought her a glass of water. Her parents walked in then and asked the basic. Is she okay? Did anything hurt? Did she have a headache? After a “thoroughâ? inspection by her dad, he pronounced she would be alright, and that they eat dinner soon, so at least Jess would have time to rest.
