"Where am I?" I asked to myself.

Scrunching my head in confusion, my gaze slid to the beeping monitor beside me and the IV in my arm. My gaze slid to the hospital gown I was wearing and my right arm in cast. I tried to move when pain hit me and I groaned in bed.

It was only then I realized the man sleeping at the chair beside me. His red rimmed eyes opened at the moan I let out. His hair was dishevelled and he had a day's beard covering his jaw. He looked like a wreck.

"You're awake!" he cried out, happy tears brimming his eyes. His lay a soft hand in my cheek and my insides warmed at his touch.

I was about to ask him when my throat felt clogged and dry. He noticed it when he said, "I'll go get the nurse. Wait here. And you'll also need water."

He hurriedly beeped for the nurse while not taking my eyes off of me. The nurse came in with a smile on her face. She helped me drink while the doctor came in.

"Hello Laurene. I'm Dr. Jones." He said with a warm smile "Let me check your vitals first and we'll run some tests for us to know if your fine. So far, how are you feeling?"

"A bit sore." I croaked

"How's your head?" he asked.

"It feels heavy." I honestly told him.

"We'll let you drink some pain killers for the pain. So far, your vitals are normal. Once we checked your lab results and monitor you for a few days, you'll be good as new." He said smiling down upon me "May I know the last thing you remembered?"

My forehead scrunched up in confusion at the dream of my wedding before remembering I was crossing the lane when I got hit. "I was crossing the pedestrian lane when I got hit."

"Correct." He said scribbling down on his journal " I'll ask you a few questions more."

He asked me a series of questions before he deemed I didn't lose my memory.

"You suffered an internal blow on your head and a few broken bones. We were able to mend it but it was all up to you to wake up." The doctor softly said. "You were in a coma for 3 weeks. You were lucky you survived. We almost lost you, Laurene."

My forehead scrunched in confusion. I turned towards Dark who was holding my hand all throughout. I can see in his gaze the truth. There was also fear in his eyes.

"We'll have a therapist help you soon. For now, rest." Dr. Jones said before leaving.

Once the door closes, I turned towards Dark. "What did he mean you almost lost me?"

Tears welled up in his eyes "You flat lined Laurene."

A gasp fell on my lips. He continued with a somber expression. I cupped his cheek as he kissed my palm "They rushed you to the hospital with a bro

it with Dark.

But with the state of things, I don't think he'll approve of it.

I sighed when my gaze slide to my sister. A memory of a dream fleeted in my eyes, and I asked her. "You had a car waiting for me at the wedding."

Her body tensed and her cheeks paled. "H-how did you know?"

My suspicions were confirmed. It wasn't just a dream. The dream I had was a possible future.

"It came to me in a dream." I softly told her as she sighed "You had it all planned."

"I just thought it would be nice to have a plan If ever you plan to back out."

"How did you know?" I asked her with eyes. How did she know I planned to back out of the wedding?

Her eyes softened "We're sisters Laurene. We're two different souls and bodies with one mind. I knew your fears just as you knew mine."

She sat next to me and held my hand "You've always been selfless to the point you let everyone push you around and make decisions for you. You strive so hard to be the picture mom and dad wanted you to be that you tend to forget who you truly are."

My throat clogged as my heart started to speed up. I felt tears brim in my eyes.

"I watched you sacrifice your dreams and happiness when Mom and Dad annulled. You became our pillar to the point we forgot you needed a support as well. Dark loves you. We both can see it. I know you feel it." she softly continued "But you're both two broken souls. You're scared of getting married, while he's scared of being left behind. You need to fix yourself first, then can you become one."

"I'll support you in whatever decision you make. I just hope you can become more selfish for just once in your life." Tapping my cheek, she left me to my thoughts as I thought about my future.
