Things hadn't changed much in the hospital room. Savannah was still there, tragically beautiful with an oxygen mask over her face. There were flowers in different parts of the room. From somewhere, sad, overly emotional music was playing.
Johnny was a bit stressed.
|"Please, baby... " He'd been begging for two days for her to wake up. The shadows under his eyes gave proof to the time spent awake, at her side, willing her to open her eyes by his words alone. |
He turned his head, looked out the hospital window. Damn the sunshine.
"Savannah, forgive me. I don't care if you never want to be with me again, just wake up. Wake up!"
|Savannah didn't respond but in the reflection of the light, it almost looked like there was a tear sliding down her cheek and into her long black hair.|
|It glistened and caught his attention instantly as he looked from the window to her. "Sweetheart," he begged, working the lump in his throat so he could speak properly. "Please don't cry. I'm sorry. God, I'm so sorry..."|
|There was no other sign of life but that one tear.|
|It wasn't but an hour later when Sean came back to check on Savannah. And it wasn't long after that before he and Johnny were... trying to seek some form of comfort. |
"We can't be doing this," he whispered huskily against Sean's mouth. "Not here. Not ever..."
|"I know," Sean said, his voice a whimper. "So consider it a goodbye." |
It was logic that could almost work, too.
|It was unfortunate that Savannah chose that moment to keep her promise to Chloe and slowly opened her eyes. She made a silent sound and stared at the two men in disbelief, her eyes shining with the betrayal she was feeling.|
|"Not totally," he said, lips curving enough to let Sean know they could still be friends. It would work, right? |
But the air seemed to tense and frowning now, Johnny looked over at Savannah's bed and was shocked to see her blue eyes open... open and staring with a look that cut him to the very core.
"Savannah..." he whispered.
|She shook her head mutely at what she was seeing and for a moment her eyes fluttered like she was going to pass out again.|
