OK, a while ago, I had the oddest dream.. Anyway, it was pretty random, but at one point I was dreaming up something about Guess who or something.. And one of the characters came real life and.. Well, I'll just skip this part. In the end, some girl was in a coma and a bunch of stuff happened err.. I'll just get to the book idea.
Anyway, I'm not sure how long ago I thought of this, at least 2008, may have been an entire year ago.
The idea is, basically this:
On the wedding day of a couple(a heterosexual couple, just to confirm any questions that may be asked), they realize they forgot something in the car, which they happened to have to park a long way back, because many people came to their wedding. It was also on the other side of the street; and on the way back, they are in a hurry because they are late for their own wedding. So, without looking both ways, a truck comes and hits the soon-to-be-wife. Obviously it is a traumatizing experience for her fiance, but, then after some scenes at the hospital, she wakes up.
She was in a coma for only 6 months or so, but the doctors told her fiance that it would be permanent. How delighted he is when he finds out she's awake, after he's been dating and having an affair with another girl for around 4 months, and is planning to marry her(heartless >.<). He tries to hide this from her, but eventually she finds out(but she does not know the extent of it), and after that her life seems to be going down hill. She lost her job in the time, and ends up going on a road of drugs, and being a prostitute, and being raped, robbed, etc.
Eventually she snaps, and is taken to a mental hospital, where she must rehabilitate. After some time, when she is almost done her rehabilitation, she runs out to see her Ex-boyfriend, because she can't take it anymore. She runs in his house to find out he is now living and is married with this other girl, at which point she cries and goes into a state of chronic depression. After some more work at the mental hospital, she snaps even worse, and plans to kill her Ex. She again finds a way out and this time sneaks out a knife, but before she gets to his house; she realizes she can't be doing this, and decides there is a better way to deal with it. Suicide. So, she promptly stands in the middle of the road at midnight, and gets hit by a truck, looking exactly the same as the one what put her in the coma, and has the same driver; which is odd seeing as he lost his license.
And then, after a flash, she wakes up in the hospital again. Confused at what is happening, she finds out that she has been in a coma for five years, and she is scared, and starts screaming. Her Ex-boyfriend comes in, and tries to calm her down. She screams at him asking why he did all of this to her, and he doesn't know what's going on. After some careful explanations, she finds out all of the things that happened after she was hit; even waking up after the 6 months, to the time when she was hit again, have all been delusions caused by the real coma.
At the end, the last lines are "Now, I pronounce you Mr. (Insert name here) and Misses (Insert name here), man and wife.
Anyway, none of this is actually CONFIRMED, it will obviously be edited, but tell me what you think of the overall idea.
