Wait!!! I feel a pulse.. it’s weak, but… it’s there.
Someone help me get her up on the stretcher! Now!
The paramedics surrounded her body as blood ran slowly down the pavement.
WHAT HAPPENED! he screamed.
His ears began to ring as he felt the weight of the world quickly fall upon his shoulders crushing all of the hopes and dreams he's ever had. The paramedics quickly placed her almost lifeless body on the stretcher, into the truck, and slammed the door.
Sir, please follow behind us. The ambulance took off as quick as they came down the road that was shaded in oak trees, but to him, appeared to be the valley of the shadow of death. More ambulances rushed on scene to tend to the mustang that was crashed into a tree that sat at the edge of the neighborhood entrance. The driver struggled to get out of the car as glass was shattering and hitting the ground with every attempt he made to stumble out of the car.
IT WAS AN ACCIDENT. IT WAS AN ACCIDENT he shouted in slur. Before the paramedics could reach the driver, her other half dashed across the street like lightening.
Ten excruciating punches were distributed all across the drivers face. Every time he landed his fist, he saw her... lifeless. On the pavement covered in blood. The next hit came even harder. The paramedics fought hard to get him to stop before it was too late...
SIR! ENOUGH. ENOUGH they cried out.
Police sirens ended the trans that came over him. His eyes were bloodshot red and his face soaked from tears of agony. His hoodie looked as if red paint was splattered all over him and he knew that if he did not run, now, that he would be in cuffs and not by her side.
He realized that the car was home being that they walked hand in hand that morning.
He immediately hit the pavement running as fast as he could to their home to retrieve it.
His black hoodie was soaked in tears as life quickly went from beautiful, to hell on earth within a matter of seconds.
Every street light that came into his sight was green as he dashed to Memorial Hospital. Nothing was making sense to him. He couldn't wrap his head around what happened early this morning. All he knew, was that if he could get to her, things would start to make more sense.
Even if........ they didn't...
he just wanted to be with her.
He pulled up so fast to the emergency center that he almost ran right into the glass. Just as he arrived, thunder cracked down like a whip and rain poured down from the heavens as if God had just opened the flood gates in the sky.
Sir, YOU CANT park there, a nurse shouted as she ran out of the emergency room to make sure that no one was injured from how fast the black Mercedes pulled into the circle driveway.
Nothing that was said to him registered into his conscious mind. All he could see was...
He rushed into the ER with questions written on his beautifully broken chocolate face that nobody dared to answer.
Words fought hard to escape from his mouth and his vocal cords felt as if they had been ripped outside of his body along with his heart.
Pl..please. Someone please... where is she? W.....where is she? His voice cracked as he broke down in tears for the tenth time since the incident.
The pale white walls of the cold hospital felt like they were closing in on him as if he were the only soul left.
The look on his face gave it all away. Every person in there knew exactly who he was looking for. The woman on the stretcher leaking blood who came in thirty minutes prior had to have a loved one that was worried; and there he was. Helpless. Hopeless. Wondering if he'd ever see the love of his life again.
He paced back and forth.... Is she going to make it? He asked with tears still making their way down his face onto his blood stained clothes.
The eyes of the nurse became filled as well, as the pain on his face was too hard to witness with the human eye without a flood of emotion taking over you.
They are doing everything they can... she said as she wiped a tear from her bright green eyes. Out of all of the emergencies that she's seen in her three years of working in this department; she'd never seen someone as broken as the man standing before her.
All he could do was wait... and wait... and wait. Every memory that they'd ever had flashed before him and before he knew it, he was no longer in the hospital, but in a field of green grass. Beautiful tulips and sunflowers lived in this enchanted place that he was envisioning. He had no idea where this place was, but for him, it was an immediate reality. He turned in circles trying to understand where he was. The sun was playing peek-a-boo behind the clouds in the ocean blue sky. Bunnies danced in the meadow. Birds were flying at a pace as if they had no where important to be. Everything seemed happy here. The type of happy that lived in his heart before this...
He began to feel a sense of hope. Just as he began to walk forward in search of what he'd lost, he felt something. It was as if his soul was being tugged in a certain direction. He turned around and looked, but nothing was there. Nothing was there, but he could feel a presence. He knew... that something... someone was near. There was an electricity in his body that came over him. The type of electricity he would feel when he was near her. He closed his eyes and opened them slowly back up.
He looked up and saw the love of his life running towards him. Her beautiful pale yellow skin glistened in the sun. He was so in tune with her that he could feel the earth beneath him shake as her feet hit the ground with each leap she took.
LENA! He cried out... he reached out to grab her and just as he reached out, the beauty of the meadow was ripped away by the sound of "code blue" screaming out from the hospital speakers.
Reality quickly set back in and there was no more meadow. There was no more Lena. All he could see was nurses and doctors rushing past him.
He fell to his knees on the cold hospital floor... and as he fell, the beautiful diamond ring that he purchased the night before, slipped from out of his pockets like thin air.
To be Continued.
