“Bella! Bella!” Alice screamed frantically. “Fuck, you stay with me. You hear me?! Stay with me. Edward needs you!”
“Edward,” I whispered. “Need Edward.”
“Edward! I need you!” Garrett shouted. “Help me get her on the gurney.”
Edward’s here? Please, baby. Make it better. In my pain induced fog, I saw him by my legs. The pain was getting worse and I couldn’t catch my breath. I felt like I was drowning. “Edward…” I moaned. My eyes drifted shut and blackness surrounded me. The pain was still there, but silent.
MORE PAIN. My body jumped as my skin felt like it was on fire.
Coolness, silence, tranquility.
FIRE! Agony! Stop! Stop! Stop!
I need to rest. Must sleep. Make the pain go away…please…
“You promise me…p-p-p-prom-m-mise me that y-y-you s-s-s-save her,” Edward sobbed. “Do everything in your f-f-f-fuck-k-k-king power to make her b-b-b-b-better!”
“Alice, did you get her jewelry?”
“Here, Garrett. Give it to Edward. He’ll keep it safe for her.”
No! I want my jewelry. Please, it keeps Edward close. I need Edward. Where’s Edward? I moaned.
Silence, no pain, sigh…
“IV’s in. Drip starting.”
“Start administering the sedative. Bella, I’m going to do everything to make you better. You make my son so happy. Please, wake up. He deserves happiness. So do you. I love you.” I felt a soft kiss on my forehead before a heaviness settled on my body, tying me to the gurney.
