Chapter 45 Glimpses

  • Liyah's POV
  • My lids were extremely heavy as I struggled to open my eyes and I could hear the sound of my breathing, which definitely was not a good thing. The day after he had put me into this room and assigned Margaret to take care of me, I had fallen very sick. I wasn't sure what the problem was and neither did Margaret but she brought in a new concoction for me to take every single day. Over time I started to feel a little better, but I wasn't strong enough to move around yet.
  • Sometimes my eyes would open up a little and I would catch glimpses of Margaret, Annalise and a strange man looming over my sick bed. But I never stayed awake long enough to engage in conversation or ask questions. But I wasn't even sure I felt like it. I was just exhausted. Sometimes I'd wished I would fall asleep and not awaken the next day. I would be happier when all the pain finally ended. But my wishes never came true and so here I was.
  • Sometimes the memory and pain of the assault would resurface and I would try to ignore it, but a few minutes later I would realize that my pillow was soaked with my own tears. I wondered if it would ever get better, but there was no answer to that question.
  • I didn't feel quite as weak today so I sat up on the bed, wincing a little when I felt a sharp pain in my chest.
  • "You're up."
