"There was pain you could feel when you were being treated but now they got rid of it and replaced it with medication" The Giver explained. "Many people throughout the times before the community found ways to treat the traumatically wounded... The most effective way back then was a method called stitches." Jonas's thoughts wondered what were stitches he couldn't even think of a land where medication couldn't treat the pain. He removed his tunic and layed on the table.
Jonas looked around as he felt a breeze brush his face lightly he saw the water it looked like the river in the community but it was blue and there were were rippling occurrences in it. He kept looking at it then a word came to his mind "sea" he thought. He saw rocks in the water that looked different from the ones back in the community. he jumped in he swam towards the rocks unaware of his surroundings he bumped into one and he felt a light sting.
He felt his head to see what had happened. all of a sudden he felt a rush to his head and drips of blood flowing down his head he started sprinting to the direction his gut told him to. Then, he stopped upon a building that had a poster that said urgent medical care. He walked in and the cold of the building filled his body. His head had nothing but blood on it. He thought he was fine it was just a gash that would heal overtime, as he wasn't able to take medication.
His hair now drenched with blood he was put upon a table with 2 people surrounding him. One reaches on to a table text to the table Jonas is sitting on. He grabs a needle and a thick piece of string and threads the needles he holds Jonas's head still then the other one pricks the needle through.Pain pulses through Jonas's body as he squirms.
Jonas opened his eyes, and to his relief he was back in the Giver's room in the annex. His head still throbbing with pain in the area where he hit the rock. The feeling of relief that he received the horrific sensation of the titches being knitted into his head. "Why did they do that to people." Jonas asked. "They needed to. It's like medication manually it used to be longer but still as effective." The giver explained.
Jonas lifted himself up from the table and almost fell as soon as he got on to feet. The pain still pulsating through him. He thought why would they do that to people, as he biked home. With the annex fading away in the distance.
