Today, my crush was sewing in class, and she got a needle stuck in her finger. The thing is, I didn't even witness it. I just heard a rumor that said "some kid got a needle stuck in their finger in Life Skills class". Nobody was specified. I didn't know who it had happened to. So when I was picked up by my mother at carpool today, and she told me that my crush had had to go to the hospital, I was completely shocked. I was in a state of utter confusion for the next few hours. I wanted to go visit her in the hospital and help her somehow. I asked my mom how she was doing, trying to sound casual. My mom said, "Don't worry, she's only in the ER." Mentally, I FREAKED. I was so scared for her.
My mom and I made my dad call her dad and ask about her, and I found out that she had a little bit of a needle stuck in her finger and had to have it surgically removed. She checked out of the hospital right afterwards, and went to her dance class, like usual. She was perfectly fine. All of my worrying, all of the hours I spent in shock, it was for nothing. It was just a little needle stuck into her finger, and everything turned out okay. I got so worked up about it, but all for naught. God, I feel like an idiot.
