I look at Mia with a confused look. She drops her phone and her body starts to shake. Her sobs make me want to pull her to me and hug her. And that’s exactly what I do. I hugged her tight, her head on my chest.
I am worried of what might happened.
I feel my shirt getting wet from all the tears. She keeps sobbing making my heart break. I wait for her to stop crying and once she does I asked her what’s wrong.
“Hey, hey what’s wrong?” I whispered petting her hair. I turn her face so she could look at me. Her face is red and her eyes are swollen. My eyes soften just by seeing her this heartbroken. It makes me wanna take all her pain away.
“I-Is- An-dre-w..” she cries. I look at her concern.
“What’s wrong with Andrew?” I asked her.
“He got into a car accident..” she sobs. I widened my eyes. Damn.
“He’ll be okay. okay?” I tell her trying to get her to calm down. She shakes her head.
“No Justin..he’s...he’s..in comma….” she mumbles. I freeze. Oh shit. I look at Mia and she has her eyes shut and tears running down her cheeks.
“Then what are we waiting for let’s go to the hospital.” I say. She shakes her head.
“No Justin I can’t… I can’t see him….not like that..” she says. I frown.
“Is your fiance we are talking about Mia.” I say.
“You don’t understand Justin…..I hate seeing people hurt especially the people I love..” she says. My heart breaks when I hear her say that. She loves Andrew and there’s nothing I can do about it.
“Why? I know is hard but if it was another girl with the same situation as you, that girl would have been at the hospital in a heartbeat.” I tell her. She keeps crying.
“Is just that I am scared, everything that happened to me in the past is all happening again. All the pain that I felt, I am feeling that again.” she says. I look at her confused. What is she talking about?
“Mia...why are you saying all those things?” I asked her. She stays quiet for a second.
“My mom died in coma….and she also got in a car accident…” she says. more tears running down her cheeks. I get closer to her and hug her tighter. She hugs me harder sobbing in my chest making her body shake against mine.
“Hey is okay...I am here..” I whispered. She keeps sobbing. I rock her like a baby.
“What if I lose Andrew like I lost my mom...Justin..” she sobs breaking my heart even more is that possible.
“No..no you won’t lose him. Everything will be okay.” I tell her.
“I love him Justin.” she says.
“I know you do..” I whispered. I close my eyes shut not wanting to hear her crying anymore.
“Please don’t let that happen..” she says pleading me. I nod my head. I wipe away her tears.
“I make sure of it. Don’t cry please..” I tell her. She stops crying after a while and I pick her up bridal style, she lays her head on my neck and I could feel her breathing.
“Where’s your car?” I asked her. She looks at me.
“Over there..” she mumbles and points at it.
“Give me the keys… I will pick it up later..” I tell her she gives them to me and I put them in my pocket. I continue walking to my car and I open the door so I could put her inside. I go to the driving seat and I start driving. I grab her phone and call the last number she called.
“Yes?” I hear a male voice.
“Hi who is this?” I asked the person.
“This is Andrew’s dad and why are you calling from Mia’s phone?” He asks. I look at Mia and she is looking outside the window.
“I am Mia’s friend your wife just called and told Mia that Andrew is at the hospital..” I tell him.
“Oh yeah I told her not to tell Mia just yet but I guess she didn’t listen to me….I’m sorry..” he says.
“Is okay, but can you please tell me where he is?” I asked him. He gives the directions to the hospital and I start driving there. Mia stays seated and quiet. Once I find a parking lot, I parked the car and turn it off. I turn to look at Mia and she starts to cry.
“Ey don’t cry, I’ll be there with you okay?” I whispered rubbing her shoulder. She stops and looks at me.
“Ok.” she says nodding her head.
I open the door of the car but a hand pulls me back. I look at Mia and she is giving me a small smile.
“Thank you.” she says. I nod my head at her and open her door helping her out.
Once we are in the building I asked the lady in the office where Andrew is, she tells me and I grab Mia’s hand pulling her with me.
“Mia!” I hear a woman say. The lady runs to Mia and pulls her into a hug. She start crying in her shoulder. I assume that’s Andrew’s mom.
“Oh my god..” I hear Mia whispered. They pull away from each other and I see them both crying.
“How’s he doing?” Mia asked her
“He’s the same Mia..” she says. Mia stays quiet and looks at me. I see her eyes getting more watery.
“No, no, no Mia don’t cry…” I tell her shaking my head and pulling her to a hug.
“Is all my fault Justin…” she says crying.
“No is not..” I whispered hugging her tighter if that’s even possible.
“Yes it is, last time I saw him was when we were arguing and I just left him alone..” she says. I keep hugging her not knowing what to say.
“Hey it was an accident..” I whispered. I see a doctor walking towards Andrew’s mom. I pull away from the hug and pull Mia with me to where the doctor is.
“Is he okay?” Andrew’s mom says.
“Yes he is, he is getting better.” He says. We sigh in relief.
“Oh thank god, can I please see him?” Mia says. The doctor nods and tells her to follow her. She follows him and I sit down in one of the chairs. Andrew’s dad comes and sits right next to me.
“I love my son, I really do but what he did was not right..” He says. I looked at him confused.
“What do you mean sir?” I asked him he sighs then looks at me guilty.
“Let’s Just say he didn’t really get in a car accident…” He says. Huh?
