Sam let out a tired sigh and looked down at her watch.

"Damn it," She cursed frustrated, "Why is it taking so long?"

Danny, who was sitting next to Sam in the waiting room, took her hand and squeezed it supportingly.

"Martin's gonna be fine," Danny said softly.

Sam dropped her head in her hands and rubbed her red eyes. Her face was tear streaked and she looked like a mess.

In a way, Sam was glad that Jack and Vivian had gone off in search of Rick and had not stayed at the hospital. She didn't want anyone to see her like this, least of all Jack.

"Gunshot wound to the shoulder," Sam muttered, "Why haven't they told us anything yet?"

"Martin's strong, he'll pull through," Danny said trying to sound reassuring, even though he himself was worried. As Sam got up to stretch her legs, she looked around the waiting room, absorbing her surroundings.

It was a clean hospital, but gloomy. The walls were plain white with no decorations or wall hangings. There were hardly any people there that Sam could see, giving the hospital a deserted feeling.

The only thing that livened the place up was the radio being played over the loud speaker. Sam looked down at her watch, groaned, and turned around to face Danny.

"Why is he still in intensive care? And why isn't anyone telling us what's going on?" Sam asked angrily.

"Please Sam, try to calm down. It'll be-"

"How do you know it'll be ok Danny? What if, what if he's dead, and, and they just don't care about telling us or"

"Sam. Take a deep breath ok?"

Sam stopped her rambling and looked intently at Danny. He was only trying to help her, only trying to keep her calm. Sam did as she was told and closed her eyes, blocking everything out.

With every steady breath she took, her heart slowed down a bit and her face softened.

All she could hear was the radio playing in the background. It was the soft melody at the start of Maroon 5's 'She will be loved'.

Sam opened her eyes and frowned apologetically at Danny.

"Sorry," she apologised and sat back down next to him, "I'm just really worried"

"I know Sam"

"I'm just so scared that something's gonna happen and… I don't wanna lose him. I guess I've never really thought about it before but I really do care about Martin. It seems just when everything's going right in my life, something bad always recks it," Sam said sadly.

Beauty queen of only 18

She had some trouble with herself

He was always there to help her

She always belonged to someone else

"Martin was always there for me, always putting me first. But with Jack, he always had other priorities. He never treated me the way Martin does"

I drove for miles and miles and wound up at your door,

I've had you so many times but somehow I want more

"I remember the first time I invited Martin over. At first I was wondering what the hell I was doing, but once I stopped worrying and started realising how I felt, I couldn't stop, I didn't want to stop. I felt a whole new sensation with Martin, something I'd never felt before, and not just physically, but emotionally"

I don't mind spending everyday

Out on your corner in the pouring rain

Look for the girl with the broken smile

Ask her if she wants to stay a while

"I never had to worry about how Martin felt. He made it clear that whatever I wanted, he would do. If I wanted to go slow we'd go slow, if I wanted fast we'd go fast. He was always putting my happiness first, always putting me before himself, always… being Martin"

And she will be loved

And she will be loved

"I guess he really loves you," Danny said.

Sam half smiled and replied, "Yeah, I guess"

Tap on my window knock on my door

I want to make you feel beautiful

I know I tend to get so insecure

Doesn't matter anymore

"Question is, do you love Martin?"

"What?" Sam asked Danny.

"Do you love Martin?" He repeated with a serious face.

It's not always rainbows and butterflies

It's compromise that moves us along

My heart is full and my doors always open

You can come anytime you want

"I- I don't know"

"Well what's stopping you? He obviously loves you. And you definately feel something for him, I see the way you look at him, isn't it love?" Danny asked curiously.

I don't mind spending everyday

Out on your corner in the pouring rain

Look for the girl with the broken smile

Ask her if she wants to stay a while

"Danny we only just started going out, we're still getting to know each other, I can't be in love," Sam explained nervously.

"Why?"

"Because I just can't"

And she will be loved

And she will be loved

And she will be loved

And she will be loved

"Is it because it's Martin?"

"No. No it's got nothing to do with that," Sam said turning her attention to the floor.

"Then is it that it's not Jack?" Danny asked quietly.

"Jack has nothing to do with this. And Martin… he's great. He sees mein away no one else does. He knows all my flaws and mistakes and yet he still loves me for being me," Sam said looking back at Danny with a small smile.

I know where you hide

Alone in your car

Know all of the things that make you who you are

I know that goodbye means nothing at all

Comes back and begs me to catch her everytime she falls

"He said he loved you?" Danny asked in surprise.

"No. But he said he wouldn't change anything about me, and I can tell how he feels everytime he looks at me, and I think he can tell how I feel," Sam said with a frown.

"And that's a problem?"

"Danny, the only man I ever said 'I love you' to and meant it, used and dumped me, even though he said he loved me too"

"Jack?"

"Yeah"

"So you're afraid of getting your heart broken again?"

"That's one of the reasons. If you don't give your heart away then it can't be broken"

"But Martin would never do that to you"

"Sure, not subconsciously, but it happens. Just being here, I know it's not Martin's fault but... it hurts.Besides, I have this awful feeling in my gut that I'm gonna break his heart"

Tap on my window

Knock on my door

I wanna make you feel beautiful

I don't mind spending everyday

Out on your corner in the pouring rain

Look for the girl with the broken smile

Ask her if she wants to stay a while

And she will be loved

She will be loved

Sam wiped her eyes and looked at her watch. It'd been hours of waiting.

Please don't try so hard to say goodbye

"It doesn't matter anyway, I mean he might not even make it," Sam said harshly.

"Sam don't talk like that"

Ayoung looking Doctor emerged from the emergency room with bloody gloves and apron.

"Are you hear for Martin Fitzgerald?" He asked non-chalantly.

"Yes, yes," Sam answered standing up to talk, "How is he?"

The doctor cleared his throat…

Please don't try so hard to say goodbye


A/N: Hey I think the next chapter might be the last for this story, I know what you're thinking, there is obviously some unresolved things going on, but I figured sonce they aren't trapped in the building anymore... so I was thinking of doing a sequel. It will have more drama, Jack/Sam/Martin, suspense andmystery. But I'll only write it iof people will read it, so review and tell me what you think I should do. Thanks
