I felt consciousness slowly returning to me, there was a light pressure on my right hand, which I could only guess was Reid. I could hear the feint beeping of a heart monitor, that and the all too sterile air told me that I was in a hospital.
Suddenly a sharp pain seared through my body. It was the same as when Chase willed me his power, but in a way it was different. Was I ascending? I couldn't be. My birthday's not until April.
A cry of pain managed to escape my lips as the power flowed through my body. After about a minute or two of the pain, it slowly died down until it stopped completely. My eyes fluttered open and I saw Reid looming over me. "Reid." I said softly. I couldn't go louder than a whisper.
Reid looked at me as if he had just seen a ghost; tears started forming in his eyes. "Thank god." He finally managed to mutter. "I thought that you'd never wake up." I was about to say something, but he stopped me. "Don't say anything, you'll tare up your throat." He started to get up and kissed me gently on the cheek. "I'll be back, I need to get a doctor." He then ran out of the room shouting for a doctor.
It was around then that I became aware of the tubes running through my throat and nostrils. I furrowed my brows. I shouldn't be hooked up like this unless… how long was I out?
Not long after Reid had left, a team of doctors came in to free me of the tubes and wires that had kept me alive for god only knows how long. They had to stitch up the hole they had made in my throat for the air tube. When they were done examining me, they left the room leaving me alone with Reid.
I pushed a button on the side of my bead that lifted the top half and enabled me to sit up. Reid sat down in a chair next to the bed and took my hand in his. "How are you feeling?"
"I… Water." I croaked. My mouth was way to dry to talk right now. Reid got up and managed to get me a small cup of water. He lifted it to my lips and I drank it down a little too eagerly. "Thanks." I murmured.
"No problem." Reid said. I have never seen him look so worried in my life.
"You know, other than my body feeling stiff as a board and my throat, I'm feeling pretty good. How long was I out?" I asked fearing the answer.
"Well…" Reid hesitated. "It's your birthday, so… about six months now."
"Oh great, what am I going to do about school?"
Reid chuckled. "You really need to sort out your priorities."
"Maybe." I said with a small grin. "So, how is everybody?"
"We're all fine. Chase didn't manage to kill anyone, but for a while we thought that you wouldn't make it. Then Caleb suggested that it was probably just because you were given too much power at one time and we'd have to wait until you ascend. I'll call him and Pogue in a minute."
"How's Sarah doing?" I asked.
"Big." He answered." I swear she'll pop any minute now. The baby's due next month it's a boy. She's going to name him Gabriel."
"And what have you been doing while I was out?" I asked.
"Er… before I tell you, promise me that you won't get mad at me."
"I could never be mad at you." I said, and then added. "At least not in this condition."
"Ok, but just so you know, he saw me using and was black mailing me."
"Aaron. He said if I fucked around with him he wouldn't tell anyone."
"And are you still fucking him?" I asked raising my eyebrow.
"No." He said quickly. "It was only for the first couple of months. I swear there was nothing between us."
"I believe you and thank you for being honest with me." I said. "So how did you get him to leave you alone?"
"Well, I found out from a friend of a friend of a girl I dated once that Aaron's pal Gordy is gay. I asked Aaron what he thought of him and I hooked them up. After that he let go of his threats."
"That's good." I said. "Sit up here with me." I patted a spot on the hospital bed next to me. "I want to be close to you right now."
Reid moved up next to me and held me against me, massaging my shoulders gently. "Something really funny happened a month ago."
"And what's that?" I purred, melting at his touch.
"Aaron came up to me and asked if I wanted to do a three way with him and Gordy. I just started to laugh hysterically and walked away." He said chuckling softly.
I laughed. "You should have, it would have been hot."
"I didn't want to fuck him more than I had to. Besides, what could be hotter than you?" He said and kissed me softly on the lips.
I moved my hands to the side of his face and brought him in for a deep kiss. We continued our little make out session until the sound of someone clearing their throat made us break away. I looked over to see Caleb, Pogue, and the girls standing in the doorway."
"Well that was hot." Pogue said grinning. Caleb elbowed him playfully and they entered the room.
"I see that you're all better." Caleb said. "I take it I missed your ascention."
"Yeah." I said.
"How do you feel?" Caleb asked. "You have all of you powers now, plus Chase's and his fathers."
"I don't really feel all that different. My body probably just got used to all of it being there."
"I'm just glad that you're finally awake." Pogue said and hugged me.
"We all are." Sarah said from the foot of the bed. My eyes widened at the sight of her belly.
"Wow, Reid wasn't kidding when he said that you had gotten big."
"If you hadn't just woken up from a six month coma, I'd hit you." She said with a hint of humor.
Kate wrapped her arms around Sarah, resting her hands gently on Sarah's stomach. "Be nice honey."
"So how did you guys explain my coma and Chase's death to everyone?" I asked.
"It took us a while to come up with something." Caleb started. "We settled on telling everyone that we had been planning a party at the old Putnam barn, then some sort of explosion happened that got most of us but you two were closest to the actual explosion."
"We actually had to pretend to mourn the bastard." Reid added.
"Maybe after you get out we can throw you a belated birthday bash." Pogue said.
Reid held me tight in his arms. "Happy birthday baby boy." Reid said and kissed me softly on the lips. "I love you."
"I love you too Reid." I said and kissed him back.
A/N: Yes, the long awaited ending of Obsession. I thank all of you that have stuck by me. (And had patients enough to not want to strangle me.) I hope you liked this fic a lot.
I am considering writing a sequel, it will be Tyler centric and will basically be him trying to find a way to get rid of the Power before any of them can fall victim to its addiction. There will also be some interesting surprised that I won't tell about until I actually write it. If it sounds like a good Idea to you, tell me. Give me fun comments and tell me what you think. (The title will be Possession)
And for your entertainment I have a couple of oneshots on the way that I'm sure you'll find enjoyable (plus yet another new covenant crossover fic… its crossed over with Ghost Rider and The Crow.) I'm also updating a few fics as well.
I have been very busy in the past week
