Anna opened her eyes slowly, where was she ? The last thing she remembered was Sunburst falling, landing on her, she tried to sit up.
"No sweetie, don't sit up, you have some banged up ribs, I get the bed up for you". Toms hand on her shoulder gently held her back.
The bed slowly went up to a sitting position, and she could se she was in the hospital, Tom was there his eye red from crying. "You are here ?"
"Of course I am darling, your parent are here to, they just went to get some food, they will be back any moment". He gently took her hand in his, caressing it.
"But you said that this isn't working, that you couldn't live like this, you don't have to be here". She bit her lips, trying to hold back the tears.
He grabbed her chin and liftet her face gently to look into her eyes. "Anna my love, you didn't let me finish before you ran of. Did I say Anything about not wanting you ? Not wanting us ?"
"Oh" she was starring at him, her mouth ajar, she had just thought that was what he meant.
"What I wanted to tell you is that I am going to stay here, either in London or move out here, what ever you want, I can go back to doing theatre and there is a fair amount of movies being shoot in and around London". He looked at her lovingly.
She really regretted not letting him explain. "But Tom that with hurt or even destroy your career, you would have to turn down alot of offers".
"I don't care Anna, younare so much more important to me, and Zac was right, I have to be on my toes and ready to fight to keep a woman like you, I can't expect you tomsit around waiting for me". He said.
She squeezed his hand. "Tom I can't let you do that, I wont be the reason for you throwing you talent away, your fans already hates me".
"No one hates you Anna, but it is the only way we can be together". He looked like he was starting to panic.
She smiled weakly. "Oh yes, they hate me, but I haven't deserved less, but I could never be happy if I knew you gave up your cereer tombe with me".
His lips started trembling and he looked like he was going to cry again. "Does that mean we are over, that you have given up on us ?"
"Did I say that Tom ? No but it ain't going to be at the cost of your career, I have a buyer for Sunburst, that why I entered the competition, I can get alot of money for her, if she isn't to badly hurt". Anna said.
"She walked of the course, I told them to care for her and get a vet if she needed, she is taken care of". He answered.
She nodded. "And I sold my book, Imhave my own money now, I don't need you to support me, I am free to do what I really want".
"Does that include me ?" He asked hopefully, holding his breath waiting for her answer.
"Of course you silly fool, but I am going with you, if you want me, I can write everywhere and you can flourish and be the start you where ment to be". She stretched to kiss him gently.
He bit his lips and his voice was trembling. "There is nothing I want more than you Anna, but are you sure you will be happy like that ?"
"I never been more sure of anything my entire life Tom, I don't want to be without you ever again". She looked up at him and he kissed her lovingly.
