Two days later...
There hadn't been much change, Kate had been discharged but still spent most of her time with Jake. She had been to see the others though, everyone asking if she was ok the one person she didn't speak to was Henry. She walked into the ICU room where Jake was still. She sat down in the chair beside him and told him that the others wanted him to wake up too and whatever else had been happening. It was then that Ronnie came in.
"You alright luv'?" he asked.
She murmured a reply looking over her shoulder to him.
"How is he?"
"Same..." She sighed.
He could see the sad look in her eye as he stood beside her. "Kate..." He started. "Am i right in thinking that there was more going on between you and Jake than you let on?"
She gave a small laugh "It's complicated."
He knew that he probably shouldn't ask but something told him too "But you do love him don't you?"
She blinked before nodding slightly. "I just...I want him to wake up."
"Don't we all luv'. He'll be ok..." he smiled "I'll be outside if ya need me."
She watched him leave before turning her attention back to Jake.
"Don't die on me Jake..." She told him "I'm sorry..." She whispered wishing him to wake up. "I'm sorry about everything, about all the times I've...annoyed you, argued...please..."
He didn't move, god dammit. She let more tears fall before she kissed his hand "I love you..." She could barely speak. "Please don't leave me..."
She put her head on the part of the bed where his hand was when she felt it move.
"Kate..." He was waking up. "Kate..."
"Jake...oh my god..." She managed.
He held her hand and looked her in the eye, seeing her tears. "You're crying...what did I do?"
She laughed slightly wiping her eyes "nearly died." Had he heard what she'd just said to him?
He smiled "still alive..." He thought "the car crash, what, why did it happen?"
"Daniel Thomson wasn't too keen on us not accepting his plea." She replied. "I know what you did..." She said. "In the car, how you put your arm in front of me...why did you do it?"
"Because...because I care about you and...I just saw the car coming and..." He looked her in the eye "Are you ok?"
"Now I know you're ok..."
"How long have I been Comatose?"
"Getting on for nearly four days..." She replied. "There was a moment when they thought you weren't waking up..."
He rubbed her thumb on the back of her hand "Still alive."
she laughed "aren't we lucky."
He rolled his eyes "very." She didn't know but he had heard what she'd said, that she loved him and of cause he felt the same way but right know all that mattered was getting out of hospital.
