Chapter 24- Restored Balance
I didn't have time to think about anything…because suddenly the heavenly world I was thrown into disappears into complete darkness.
"Hey!" I called, desperately trying to run back into the lovely…bright world I was in.
"Wait!" I called again, but the only thing I saw was the angelic lady of my heaven.
"Go back…it is not your time yet." She ordered, and with a flourish of sparkling dust she was gone and I was once again alone.
I wanted to run…I wanted to do…something….anything…but I found I couldn't…that every time I attempted moving my body screeched with immense pain.
So eventually I stopped and everything became a little better now I could hear a never ending machine made noise…a loud…extremely annoying beep that never rested or stopped.
I also heard someone crying, along with frantic voices and orders being called out…the sobbing became muffled as I realized the person had moved into another room.
It took me a moment to realize the horror of the situation…that in my process of coming back from the unconsciousness I was dead…that explained the never ending beep of my heart rate.
This could not be happening…I get set back and its already ending…I had been too late.
I opened my eyes into the world for the first time….the lights now much brighter...so intense I hurt…but I couldn't move to shield my eyes anyway.
"He's awake!" Someone reported.
"But that's impossible…he doesn't have a heartbeat." Someone said in astonishment.
I shifted my head to the side to get a glimpse at whatever machine was making that awful head pounding noise…but everything was blurry and I could only vaguely recognize it because of the blurry red line.
"Will someone shut that thing off?" I growled, even though the slightest movements sent me a wave of dizziness.
People in scrubs and face masks scrambled around the room, some people trying to jot down my condition while others tried to make my heart start again.
I didn't think about how this is not possible…I didn't even care.
As my vision soon focused I saw a figure in the distance…a porcelain skinned figure with the brightest flaming hair and the prettiest pink eyes…which were wide with horror as she furiously pounded at the door, each one making a dent in the heavy metal that suggested that her powers had weakened since we both know she was quite capable of ripping the door apart.
The little beep thing stopped and then beeped again as my heart thumped inside my chest once.
Everyone froze as they witnessed this miraculous thing occur.
"Let her in…I want to see her." I ordered.
They started at me…dumbfounded for a really long time before complying as they pushed the door open.
The redheaded beauty rushed across the room barely able to prevent herself from jumping on top of me with anxiousness.
It was obvious she was worried, it showed in her large…wet eyes as she looked at me up and down, inspecting for injuries and my condition.
It was also clear that she had obviously cleaned up from the crash because her skin was only a soft pink from the burns and it was yellowing where she bruised, she smelled like she always smelled, like the ripest strawberries.
I wasn't surprised when Boomer and Bubbles had entered after her, all looking evenly concerned and relieved at the same time…but it was clear they were trying to restrain themselves.
The monitor for my heart leapt up again…the nearer she got the more steadily it flowed, everything became clear, my head no longer hurt and I didn't feel the least tired…I felt better…I felt…alive.
When she neared at my bedside all I could do was stare at her...lost in her never ending rosey pink eyes.
"Miss me babe?" I asked playfully, though my voice was annoyingly hoarse and it hurt like hell to talk.
I saw a single clear tear roll down her cheek before it fell to the floor with the sound of water only we superhuman could hear.
She took in a breath, "Yes…more than anything…" She answered honestly, though she strained to get out the words clearly without breaking down.
I could tell she wanted to do nothing more than hug me, which I would've done by, now if I could move…at all that is.
"Hey guys…" I called to the others.
Bubbles was the first to approach.
"How are you feeling?" She asked in her meek, soft voice that she used whenever she was worried or stressed.
"A little rough…but I'll get better." I assured her.
"Hey bro." I called.
He forced a weak smile. "Hey brickhead…pretty nasty fall you took there." He added, trying to lighten the mood.
"Yeah…I guess." I chuckle though it is rather painful.
Suddenly two other figures stand in the doorway, both looking oddly fine though extremely upset.
It didn't take supervision to tell who it was…you could tell just by their demeanor.
It was Butch and Buttercup, both wearing their signature green, though Buttercup's was rather brightly colored while Butch's was toned down to the color of grass.
They both looked equally upset, but they looked fine and unharmed, clean at least, and certainly not trying to kill each other.
But you could tell how worried they were…they just showed it a different way…through their anger.
Blossom hurried over to Buttercup's side, a long scolding already forming in her words…but she stopped abruptly and then hugged her sister with bone crushing force.
"Don't ever…ever…ever…ever…ever…do that again." She hissed.
And then her features softened. "Promise me you won't…do ever leave me like that again." She choked.
Buttercup's scowl was replaced by a look of sympathy as she awkwardly comforted the leader of the three girls.
Bubbles was quick to follow, instantly bursting into tears and clutching onto her sisters for the strength to live on.
At that time I knew everything was going to be okay…everything was always okay…as long as we all had each other.
