You know that moment you feel like if you had gone to the person sooner you would have saved their life, that was how I felt as I sat outside Tristan's hospital room.

A female doctor and two nurses were still in his room, it had been an hour now, I bit on my nails as I thought of what must be going on in there, was he still alive?

Morris came to stand in front of me, he held out a cup of Starbucks coffee and a donut for me to take.

"No, I'm not hungry."

I said and looked down at my feet that were still trembling, I tapped them on the neat floor to stop it.

My eyes were sore from my non-stop cry on the phone with 911. When I found Tristan's unconscious body on the floor I freaked out.

I remember kneeling beside his unmoving body and calling his name but he didn't answer, I touched his hands and they felt so cold.

My heart pounded against my chest, I thought he was dead. I screamed Morris's name but he was taking forever to come up.

My hands were shaking as I typed 911 on my phone, tears gathered in my eyes and fear consumed me. I had never seen a dead person so I didn't know if he was still alive or dead.

"911 what's your emergency?"

A feminine voice came from the other line.

"I...I just came to check on my friend and found him on the floor, he is not moving. I think he is dead."

I said and cried.

"Mam, calm down."

I nodded as if she could see me.

"I need you to do something for me, can you?"


I said sniffing.

"Check if he is still breathing, try and feel his pulse."


I placed my head on his chest and listened quietly, his heartbeat was faint but I was relieved he was still breathing.

"Yes he is still breathing but it's doesn't sound good."

"Perfect, I need you to keep checking his pulse while I send our team to you, can I have your address?"

I didn't know the address but Morris arrived right in time, he helped me with the address and we both waited.

The paramedics arrived and took him while we followed behind in a different car.

And now here I was saying a silent prayer in my heart for him, I wish I went sooner to him. Who knew how long he was on the cold floor helpless and unconscious.

I brushed my brown hair back and squeezed my knees with my hands, Adrian was still not answering my calls or my texts, I hoped he was okay.

"Where is Tristan?"

I turned to look at Mrs. Sanchester who was walking towards us, Nora and Nana trailed behind.

"Is my baby okay?"

She had tears in her eyes, she looked so vulnerable.

She stared at Morris waiting for him to say something.

"We haven't heard anything from the Doctor, she is still in the room with him."

He told her in a soothing voice.

"Is Tristan okay?"

Nora asked sitting next to me

"He will be."

That was all I told her, his grandmother had a rosary in her hand as she listened to my answer.

"I told you to check on him every hour so this won't happen again."

I heard Mrs. Sanchester say to Morris, they were talking in a low tone but luckily for me I was very close to them.

"He forbade me from coming to his room."

"Is he still seeing his therapist?"

Therapist? Tristan had a therapist?

"No, " Morris replied.

"Oh, God."

She groaned placing her palm on her forehead.

It seemed this wasn't the first time something like this was happening. The door to his room finally opened, we all turned to look at the pretty Doctor that stepped out with two nurses behind her.

"How is my baby? Please tell me he is okay."

"He is okay but he won't be accepting visitors till tomorrow."

is nose, I looked behind me before walking in and shutting the door quietly.

I walked to the bed and stared at his sleeping form, he looked so peaceful and adorable. I brushed his hair back with my hand, he had his demons he was fighting, big demons.

"You will overcome this I promise."

I whispered. It took me a long time to overcome mine though I didn't know what his story was.

I brought the seat a few feet away closer and sat down, I planned to stay for ten minutes and leave but I drifted off to sleep immediately my head touched the bed.


I woke up to someone tapping me lightly on the shoulder. I grumbled before opening my eyes, they met a pair of blue eyes.


I sat up and looked around, I remembered walking in here to check on him but I slept off when I rested my head on the bed.

"Are you comfortable?"

He asked hoarsely still staring at me.

"Sorry I slept off."

I checked the room for a wall clock, I found one above the door, it was past 2 in the morning.

"You can sleep here."

He pointed to the space next to him, he moved to create more room when I stared at the space like it wasn't enough for me.

"No, I'm okay."

"It's fine, there's enough space for both of us."

He sounded weak, the nasal canular in his nose moved every time he spoke.

"I don't think it's allowed and I don't wanna make you uncomfortable with all the stuff connected to your body."

"I'm the one paying the hospital bill and I'm very comfortable."

I was getting worried about the way his voice sounded.

I shouldn't even be here more so share a bed with a sick person but I needed him to shut up since the more he spoke the weaker he sounded.

"Okay, " I agreed.

I took off my bunny slippers and climbed the bed gently scared I might hurt him. My body relaxed immediately it made contact with the bed, I felt so sleepy.

We had to share one pillow but I didn't use the blanket covering him, the hospital gown he wore had only ropes at the back and I knew he was naked underneath.

His free hand moved to my shoulders so he could lie down comfortably, I stiffened and looked up at his face, his eyes were closed.

"Are you sure this is allowed?"

"Go to sleep, Chloe."

He grunted.

My body obeyed, I fell into a deep sleep immediately my eyes closed.

I forgot where I was or who I was sleeping next to as I snuggled closer.
