Veronica rushed into the hospital's emergency room, closely followed by Keith.
"I'm looking for Logan Echolls." She said frantically. Keith put his hands on his daughter's shoulders in an effort to comfort her. When Veronica had told him that Logan had been in an accident, his heart had dropped. This was nothing in comparison to what Veronica felt. Her heart had stopped beating.
"He's in surgery. Dr. Yee is the doctor in charge." The nurse replied.
"That's all fine," Veronica snapped, "but what's happening?" She was feeling so frustrated, and helpless.
"From what I was told, their main concern is the perforation to his liver and an extensive loss of blood." The nurse replied gently.
"Their main concern?" Veronica asked, on the verge of tears.
"He also has a mild concussion and a few broken ribs." She added. Veronica started to cry.
"He's going to die. I'm going to lose him." She sobbed into Keith's arms.
"No, you're not." Keith said softly. "Logan's strong. He's survived Aaron, he's survived Lilly, he's survived you." Veronica chuckled.
"He can survive anything."
He made Veronica sit down and left to get her some coffee.
6 hours later:
The doctor approached them. Veronica jumped to her feet. She could tell the news from the doctor's face.
"I'm so sorry. He lost too much blood. We lost him." Veronica slumped to the floor. Keith had to give the doctor credit for saying that they lost him, and sounding genuinely sad doing so. Veronica was crying beyond comfort. After being assured by Keith that Veronica would be fine the doctor left.
"Why would he leave me?" Veronica sobbed as Keith hugged her.
"Wh- Wh- What did I d- do wrong?"
"Honey, I don't think Logan wanted to leave you. And you didn't do a thing wrong."
"Then why did he leave?" She wailed. The nurse looked over hesitantly, not sure whether she should offer a helping hand or let Veronica mourn the loss of the love of her life. Keith gently shook his head to indicate that he had it under control.
2 hours later:
"Hey, Logan." Veronica touched his hand gently. It felt so cold. She started to cry again and chastised herself. Logan wouldn't want to see her sad.
"I'm sorry. I'm so sorry. For everything." She squeezed his hand.
"I'm sorry for not appreciating you more, and for blaming you for everything and not being able to say that I love you. Because I do. God, Logan, I really do." She bit back a sob.
"But mostly, I'm sorry for crying right now. I know you'd tell me to stay strong. That it's all going to be fine. But, to think that I might not see you again, makes it so damn hard not to cry." The tears started to fall on Logan.
"But it's not going to be fine. I want you to tell me how I'm supposed to live the rest of my life without you. Because, I honestly cannot find an answer to that. I can't do it. It's too damn hard. You are the only thing that's right in all the things I've done. And now I have to miss you everyday."
She started to lose what little composure she had left.
"And the worst part is that I have to say goodbye. Or, at least, that's what they'll tell me to do." Veronica couldn't get another word over her lips.
10 minutes later:
"I don't know how to say goodbye, Logan. So I won't. Remember how you used to make fun of me for watching Home And Away? Well, as Cassie said to her grandma, I won't say goodbye. I'll give you a hug, a smile and a kiss. Because... I won't see you for a while. But until then, I'll cherish you and remember you every single day. And when the day comes that finally, you and I will be together again, I'll run into your arms and give you the same hug, smile and kiss." Veronica hugged Logan gently, smiled at him and placed one final kiss on his fingertips. Then she left, with the tears no where near stopping from falling.
