people are dangerous,
because they know,
that they can survive."
That is all Harry saw as he sat in the hospital waiting room.
He observed people.
The happy ones, the sad distraught ones, the ones that just don't give af.
He's been sitting here for a life time. Nothing really seems to be exciting, or new to him. He's seen it all before.
He knows how this will end. The doctor comes out.
'I'm sorry sir. But this time, we just couldn't do it.'
Harry had seen the movies. He knows he'd have to move on.
He knows he'd have to forget about Burgon James. The girl he liked almost too much.
But the question he had, was if all this happened,
Could he forget about Burgon?
He would like to think he could meet another girl. And like her just as much.
But. He knew. In his heart that, that just.... couldn't happen.
Excuse me. Sir?"
Harry escaped from his trance.
It was the doctor. Harry braced himself for the worst.
"She's alive. We flushed her system.
She should be fine. She will be able to go home in one or two days. However, if she keeps up this suicidal behavior, she will be required to go to rehabilitation. We trust that you will be able to take care of her though."
The relief and joy that washed over Harry was almost indescribable.
"Thank you so much sir."
The doctors face suddenly became concerned.
"Burgon, she's, she's had a hard life son. The things that her father did to her are unspeakable. I've only just met her, but no little girl should have to go through what she went through. I trust that you'll take good care of her? We understand your life style is busy, and there are other people we can call to take care of her if you are not prepared to watch her 24/7."
As the doctor spoke Harry's heart dropped.
When they had been talking about their families in the park, she said nothing about him hurting her.
He knew her mom and her sisters had died.
But nothing was said about her father.
"Yes. I am prepared to take care of Burgon. I will be there for her, whenever she needs me..
I'll fix her."
